9. The Nokia ringtone was composed in 1902
Finland’s most famous corporation, Nokia, is one of those very rare companies that have a globally recognised “aural logo”, the famous tudututu-tudututu-tuuuuuu (you know the one). It turns out it wasn’t created by some clever ad agency in the 1990s, but is in fact a phrase from a composition for solo guitar, Gran Vals, written in 1902 by the Spanish classical guitarist and composer Francisco Tárrega.

omg i think i actually found sth that my cat-flatmate is willing to eat. she’s been living off tuna and milk for months now and i seriously doubt it’s good for her health. does this mean she’s a snob or just plain stupid?
Old building tagged.
my little sister is 10 today. the song is from the first album that she ever bought with her own money. i’m quite proud of her, i think my first one was spice girls or possibly sth even more horrifying.
the kitsch-fest is over for this year and although, as always, quite a huge part of it felt like one long nightmarish karaoke night, i thoroughly enjoyed the brilliance of mr marko.
in his opening speech he emphasized the importance of not singing in english but went on to say that he is nonetheless willing to forgive bonnie tyler.
i learned a lot tonight. thank u marko!
