Two Night Photos From Bangkok

The title of this post kind of describes it really…

There’s not much more to say, so here’s a playlist with my songs & cover songs. From acoustic singer/songwriter stuff, via children’s songs to punk. Give it a listen, or at least the first clip with the new material – it’s only one minute of your life that you’ll never get back.

Sønnen min og jeg så «Dyrene i Hakkebakkeskogen» på førpremiere på Colosseum Kino like før jul. Det var en underholdende og spennede film med mange velskrevne og velkjente sanger. Dersom du har vokst opp i Norge i løpet av de siste 40-50 årene, så kjenner du garantert til flere av sangene.

Ganske tidlig i filmen møter vi Bakermester Harepus som, på fiffig vis, forsøker å videreformidle noe som mest sannsynlig er en gammel familieoppskrift, til lærlingen i bakeriet. Komplikasjoner oppstår raskt og uten å avsløre for mye kan jeg vel si at Thorbjørn Egner (forfatteren bak “Dyrene i Hakkebakkeskogen”) påpeker viktigheten av å lytte og å følge
oppskriften.

I Remember…

My acoustic version of M.D.C’s «I Remember»

I remember when I first went to school
They said, Don’t be a joker, don’t be a fool
Pledge your allegiance to the red, white and blue
Don’t expect your country to do nothin’ for you
They said your forefathers loved you
but I only had one
And I watched him die in the heat of the sun
Suckin’ up the bullets of a policeman’s gun
There was nothin’ I could do but stay away

In the U.S.A. you gotta take your chances
If you plan on stayin’ free
They call this the land of the living
But they’re trying to make a dead man out of me

I remember when I first hit the road
I was runnin’ from the lenders of the money I owed
Came to Austin, heard a knock at my door
Crossed another border and I’m runnin’ some more
They say they’re gonna get me but it ain’t happened yet
Burnin’ my fingers on my last cigarette
It’s time to remember time to forget
Nothin’ I could do but get away

I remember all the stories I heard
How a man’s supposed to be ’bout as free as a bird
My brother’s in prison, my father’s dead
Me, I’m tired of living with a price on my head
I wonder if there’s a place to be
In the whole wide country for a fella like me
Name’s in the paper, face on T.V.
Nothin’I can do but get away

The Changing Seasons: September 2016 / V2

When I posted «The Changing Seasons» for September, I didn’t have enough time or whatever to create something for V2, so I decided to join my own challenge.

That’s why this is my entry to my own challenge «The Changing Seasons».

Album de oro de Cardinal Guzman

Album de oro de Cardinal Guzman

I spotted this Enrique Guzman album on the street one day, maybe a year or two ago, and I knew I had to make something out of it some day. This doesn’t represent September in any way, but in my defense I’ll mention that the photo of me there, is decades old and what’s more representative of changing seasons than your own, decaying self? Yey! 😀
If you want to check out the music of Enrique Guzman, you can find his stuff on YouTube. Personally I think it’s horrorshow and that you should check out my YouTube channel instead: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX1ahxKvmOSCD9yBz6WymLA

To read about the challenge, visit the following post and also check out the other entries. Lots of great photos from awesome people!

Karius & Baktus

Instrumental version of the Karius & Baktus tune.

From Wikipedia:
Karius and Bactus (ISBN 0961539410) (original Norwegian title: Karius og Baktus) is a Norwegian children’s novel written and illustrated by Thorbjørn Egner. The book was first published in 1949 and produced as a 15-minute puppet animation film by Ivo Caprino in 1954. An English translation by Mike Sevig and Turi Olderheim was published in the United States in 1986.

The main characters are Karius (black haired) and Bactus (red haired). Their names are puns on Caries and Bacteria, and they are two small “tooth trolls” that live inside cavities in the teeth of a boy named Jens. They have a very good life, especially when Jens eats white bread with syrup and fails to brush his teeth afterwards. Eventually their homes are destroyed by the work of a dentist and they are rinsed out of Jens’ mouth through proper dental care.

The story of Karius and Bactus, with its humorous illustrations and important message, has become a classic of Norwegian children’s literature. Since its publication, the idea of “tooth trolls” has been used as a pedagogical device for generations of Scandinavian children.
