Being an actor and blogger has proven difficult without a phone, but a few weeks ago I finally got one again! Thanks to Adkom I am back in business.
Coming from a proper first world country where cellphones seem to grow on trees, I still can’t remember having bought a phone, ever. Usually I get my Dads old phone once his new one arrives or a friend will have an extra lying around. Nokia even sponsored me when I hitchhiked to Africa with their half a kilo top model, The Communicator.
I never got into smartphones until I tweeted Haifa, begging her to give me her old iPhone. Haifa was too embarrassed to reply to my blunt request, but fortunately my sister heard my prayers, or perhaps read them on Twitter, and gave me hers. Family (Love)!
So that makes the summer of 2012 when I got my first Smartphone! (except the one that got stolen after a week). The phone she gave me had already been stolen, tracked by the police, and given back to her and it was a bit water damaged. It lasted me a year but in Nepal the battery really started dying out completely at like 60%. I was addicted to it at the time, using interesting apps such as Instagram, (add me) and Snapchat.In my desperation I had a guy in Kathmandu change the battery which I didn’t even know was possible. It didn’t cost a lot in Nepal, but it didn’t last long either. After that I changed the battery twice and had fused together with Adrian’s crushed iPhone and then I had to have it un-locked (because now its half American). And now, due to a very recent change in Lebanese policy I have to go to the MTC office to have it registered (or god knows what). Finally I can call again.
But figuring out how to get this shit done would have been impossible without my buddies in Adkom in Dora. Adkom is the official authorized Apple dealer in Dora and they take care of everything.
When it comes to iPhones and Macs these guys knows what they are doing! Not only did they fix my phone, but every time I have to clean up my harddrive I do it at Adkom for a cool $50. It’s a perfect place for getting your apple products cleaned up.
The boss took me under his wing, as if he knew how hard it is to be a poor actor/blogger without a smartphone. He told me DON’T WORRY Mr Matias! Everything is going to be all right! Needless to say we made a deal which lead me to finally get back in Business!
After Adkom got me back online I have already done a business deal where I earned a bicycle, much tanks to my phone.
So if anyone wants to call me for any potential business deals or other important matters, NOW you can! My brand new number is: 00961 76636443

An ivestegatory video report about who is the Original P of Norwegian Music!
Since moving back to Norway after 4 years in Lebanon, a lot has happened on the music front. Before I had only heard about one P in Norwegian music and that was ONKLP. Nowadays we also have Admiral P and Store P (there is actually a guy called Tande P too but he has gone missing), so it is bit complicated to find out who is the Original P. We made a mini documentary to find out!

Jewish British MP Sir Gerald Kaufman discussing the situation in Israel!
“Most of my parents’ families – because my parents came here as refugees – most of my parents families were murdered in the Holocaust. When the Germans came to the town from which my mother came in Poland, Stachov, they lined up all the Jews to march to the railway station to be put in cattle-wagons. But for those who were not well enough to march, they killed them on t... [more]
