Since my friends at administration failed to transfer my vacation when I moved back to Norway and I am left with the amount of one (1) week of vacation I decided to post a picture from Spain last year.

Not a very sharp one, but its from my farewell party and last Nato exercise (so far). It was a great night with awesome steaks at the steak house and more booze as wells as kindersurprise eggs than most of you can handle.

This summer seems to become a great one… also for the ones that chooses to work. Mohahaha

Oh and since I am at it - I have added a spocked up picture from Latina 2004 as well.

Dum Dum Boys (concert)

I have waited a long time for this. Many years. In fact all my life… and not in vain. Dum Dum Boys live is a pleasure, it’s a party it’s a feast.

Its all the good songs played even better than ever. Rocking you up. Leaving you with a taste for more. Teasing you.

Its when you hear Dum DUm Boys live – you understand what a magnificant band they are. And when they finish the 2nd extra number with a cover from Knutsen and Ludvigsen and the awesome “Idyll” then it’s a perfect consert.

Cant wait a long time to see them again.

Free Jimmy (Movie)

The world is a strange place. The honor to make the most expensive Norwegian movie goes to Christopher Nielsen, the brother of Joachim “Jokke” Nielsen – who was one of the 4 big ones in Norwegian Rock – the creator of the song “To fulle menn” – voted as the best Norwegian song ever made – Who became a victim of price dumping of Heroin in Oslo and instead of serving us with more years of happy drinking songs – died away from us in the grip of The White Lady as well as so many others.

Christopher did make the wild cartoon on Jokke’s albums as well as he made underground cartoons. And he has also made an animated feature before with “To trøtte typer”

Free Jimmy is the first full length feature movie from Christopher and includes all or at least most of his cartoon characters. The name Free Jimmy parodies the name “Free Willy” except that Jimmy is an animated drug addicted elephant and unlike Willy (who swam back to Norway) he only exists in a computer frame and can be set free.

It has taken an age to make this movie. It features some of the best animated tech there is – and uses it to create beautiful scenery over Christopher’s brutal universe. Where he takes the dark sides of Norwegian life and turns it into brutal comedy but at the same time – puts the finger on several important issues.

It’s a long time since I have enjoyed a movie like this. I just had a laugh all the way though. And in a way this is heritage to the great Flåklypa even with its much darker humor.

There are several references to other movies. The strongest and clearest one is probably the “Bambi” scenes with the Elk trying to help a shacking elephant on its feet.

The most funny scene is when they steal a car and it crashe - more I will not say about it - to spoil the fun.

I am looking forward to see it again with English voices. And again and again. This is the movie you go and see even you don’t want to see any movies. A must for everyone!

Second Flower

Well as I said. I went for another flower. But to be honest two is enough as I already have a hard time keeping them alive. I need some more gardening skills I suppose…
