Life is Like a Paper Bag

I was thinking of doing a post today comparing the ruling of the Supreme Court of Sweden in the so called "manga-case" (a criminal case in which the accused´s possession of manga-drawings highlights a conflict between the Swedish Child Pornography Act and the fundamental rights of free speech and free thought) with the nervousness and unease surrounding "child avatars" in SecondLife.

After I had started working on the post I realized it would be too long and take too much time and energy on the first day of my vacation, so I chucked the idea.

Instead I will send a greeting to my buddy the albeit heterosexually challenged but still fabulous and multi-talented blogger, philosopher, fashionista, cartoonist, author, enfant terrible etc., etc. Apmel Goosson of Solace Island..

In a blog post today, Apmel tells us he has more and more come to view SecondLife as playing with a doll house, and those are something one outgrows. I would therefor like to dedicate these two quotes to my bosom buddy.

"Life is like a paper bag, empty and devoid of meaning if you do not fill it"
Hans Alfredsson (1921-), Swedish comedian and philosopher

"A SecondLife without Apmel? Unthinkable!"
The Much Honored Bock McMillan (2007-), laird of Southern Charm and prince of Cascade Falls
