Hej hopp

It's been a bit empty. Everybody leaving blogger to go to facebook, myspace and so on. I've just been busy living though. And it's been great, although I forgive you for doubting.

Since last time we had my Swedish favourite band, Sounds like violence over here in Oxford and they did stay over at my place. Mum and dad have been here visiting. I've met a girl. I've got a new job that's been taking me to Dussledorf, Dublin, Seattle and Swindon. I've gone on holidays to Strömstad- Sweden, Edinburgh- Scotland and Granada- Spain. Last but not least I've watched Turbonegro as well!

I know, no surfing or snowboard since Australia in February and that feels not great. But what's a boy to do. Too much to choose from, so I seem to have lost priorities. He he. But seriously though, it's pretty great to have a girl again.

If you wanna catch up on the fanzine, go to and check out the Denture!

Evening Run!

Thank God for daylight savings,

went for a run at seven and got to watch the sun set behind the houses of Oxford like a big orange. Beautiful! Another beautiful thing is that we now have booked the Wheatsheaf for Sounds Like Violence on the 23rd of May 2007. That show is gonna be great!

On a different note, I can now inform you that I am motley fool and about to make some moves at the office. Oh, and my scheme to recruit an armada of writers for the Denture seems to work! Got two contributions about violence and death today! Awesome!

On the merry-go-round!

In the big league!

Yesterday I agreed with the booking guy for Sounds Like Violence that they should come and play for us here in Oxford. You may not yet know it but SLV is the biggest thing since sliced bread and it's gonna be great!

Wales England

Last Saturday I was on my way to Cardiff. I got invited in the last minute to full hospitality and the last game of the six nations rugby tournament. Millenium stadium!
Singing Welshmen as the beat the pommies agains all odds! Awesome.

In and Out

It breaks down like this: Sometimes you're in other times you're out. Sometimes you're in with the outcrowd and sometimes you're out with the incrowd. At the moment I just wanna get out from the incrowd.

It feels like I wanna say: Fuck you, I don't want your life, your aggression, your frustrations nor your joy. I found a better way! All I need to do is to hedge my bets and it's gonna be alright...

Stay tuuuuned!

Oxford Revisited

So I am back again after the holidays. Last week I was kind of upbeat, though jetlagged. In the weekend everyday depression set in and today I got a bug in my throat.

All in all, however, things are really good. It's just difficult to get up to the pace of life hereafter being in my relaxed holiday-no-worries-mode for so long.

The weekend was used to catch up with the things I like here. So last Friday I went to Gammy Legs and caught up with Pete and Richard as well as Anita and watched Raggasaurus. The Saturday was spent reading and running and having some friends over for dinner. The Sunday was recovery mode and then Swiss Concrete, which was excellent. This night we had Spies are Flies from Hell, Mesaplex and the awesome Last Days of Lorca playing for us.

Stay awesome

Closing time on a lot of stuff and opening time on other stuff. Surfed Johanna two days ago and it was great, had some nice meals in St Kilda and went sight seeing with Anita on the great ocean road. I did not do what I set out to do, but still managed to overachieve.

So happy

Flew into Melbourne yesterday after spending a lazy day packing and brunching with Lucy and Billy. The wedding i Wellington was fab and the reception fantastic. I had a really good time talking and dancing. Wildlife sacturaries, look-outs, Te Papa, city walks and coffees, barbeques and beers were on the rest of the agenda. Time just goes to quickly...

Today I will just vege out and do nothing here apart from reenting the car and stuff for tomorrow.

Got inte the water today at Gisborne. Small day but some nice rides on the wall, adrenalin. Althought not as much as during my run in Kaikoura, where I surfed some 75-100 meters along the shore, whilst the wave slapped my backfoot.

Last night I slept on the Mahia peninsula in my sleepingbag under the stars after surfing Black's. Saw the comet, shooting stars made wishes.. Yeah that's right sunset over Hawke's bay and sunrise over the Pacific as well.

Now I am pretty much nackered and will go and buy some beers and food. Looks like salad and maybe lamb.

In summary, hoiday is good and I am living the dream although somewhat tired at the mo.

Banks Peninsula

Finally got in the water again. Surfed some small pelling waves and the occasional bigger one at tumblewater beach. It was good to be back, and I spent a solid three hours in the water before dehydration forced me to land.

The day before was birdwatching day with yelloweyed pinguins and albatrosses as well as furseals.

And the day before that I went to Alex's Knob at Franz Josef glacier. As I was walking in solitude in the rainforest I met God and it was fantastic!
