Denmark in the 70s?

Ever wondered what the 70s in Denmark looked like? Heh, probably not. But here is an example anyway :) A fantastic music video with the Danish musician Tommy Seebach. Oh wee, they do not make videos like that anymore :)

Blog Spam

Spam, spam, spam… also for blogs of course :( Here’s nice entry about new blog anti-spam plugins. I’ve installed MT-Moderate, let’s see if that helps me.

It’s the Copenhagen Night Film Festival (da. Natfilmsfestival) this week. A cool movie festival held in Copenhagen each year, with movies from all over the world — most of them only shown in Denmark on the festival.

As usual I am a busy guest, seeing one or two movies per day. Here’s the movies I’ve seen so far:

Except for Gagamboy, which was disappointing, they’ve all been pretty good. But the best so far has been Forgiveness, a South African movie about an ex-cop from the apartheid days that returns and confronts the family of the boy he murdered as a cop. Touching and very good movie. It’s followed closely by The Woodsman, which is about a pedophile that returns to his hometown after 12 years in prison, and tries to get back to leading a normal life. A hard subject, and good acting from Kevin Bacon.

And here’s “what’s left”:

Gotta run … there’s a movie up :)

New mobile phone

I’ve gotten a new mobile phone: A motorola A780:

Picture of the Motorola A780

It’s got 50MB flash, Bluetooth, quad-band, browser, etc. but the main reason for choosing it is that it runs on Linux — Montavista Linux if I’m not misinformed. The question is whether it’s possible to access Linux, or you are limited to Java APIs? Did anyone say Firefox? :)

I’ve only had it for a day now, and haven’t had the time to play around with it. It works, but first impression is that it has some “1. generation” problems. More to come…

Spring has arrived

| | Comments (2)

Spring has arrived in Denmark. It’s around 10-12 degrees Celcius, and I’ve gotten my bike out again — it’s fantasic to have it on the street again, after the winter break! Biking is fun — I can only recommend it. It’s a bit more dangerous than riding a car, but I think it’s worth it.

Spring also means a bit of work in the summer house, which is fine. But this year I’ve gotten an uninvited guest in the house:


This little critter, a marten, is probably a nice little animal. The problem is that it has moved in on my attic and is destroying the insulation :( So I used a good deal of this Thursday to try to Marten-proof the house, and also set up a trap to try to catch it. First priority is to keep it out, but catching it would be an added bonus. One of my neighbours has chickens in his garden, so he also has quite an interest in catching the beast.

Hopefully I’ll have a blog post soon with the title “Marten — RIP”…
