Them Ol' Gospel Blues
You know, as secular and agnostic I can be, there is one thing I can credit Christianity for. The music. I'm not talking about hymns, though those are lovely. I'm talking about lively, vibrant, charged and energetic gospel souls, blues and funk. If you find regular church mass boring as hell, and dreary and tedious as the preacher monotonously drones on and on about scripture, try for a more soulful congregation. Those guys know how to party, and the way they preach scripture is all kinds of fun. I once visited Florida with the family, and we stopped at this church-slash-bed-and-breakfast joint for brunch. Congregation and gospel included. The next two hours, everyone was jumping, dancing and singing at the top of their lungs. It was quite the atmosphere, one I certainly enjoyed. You know that scene in The Blues Brothers where the brothers attend the church of Rev James Brown?
It was exactly like that.
I think they even sang "Old Landmark."
On top of that, it wasn'

Long time, no see, eh? Well, life has been crazy since I moved across the country and started living for myself in Oslo. Crazy AWESOME most of the time. Last I talked to you (whoever you might be (kidding, I know you, and I love you all)) I had gone to school a month or two and done one project. Now I've been there a few more, and done several more things.

The most interesting thing I've learned must be 3D modeling and animation. Granted, I'm not a very good modeller, but it's cool to know how to do it, and I like setting scenes and lighting. When I'm not swamped with other projects, I want to do more 3D and learn more. And I mentioned being swamped? That's because right now, I'm in the finishing part of a school project to make an animated short movie together with three other classes from school: film, illustration and sound design. We've made a vampire movie (I know, very original. But! we got a twist!), and the characters our illustrator made are just awesome! I can't really show you now, since it's not finished, and I don't think she has a DA-account, or anything else, but I'll see what I can do when we're done, and we release it.

And in november I got the "job" as a voluntary Facebook moderator for BioWare Norway. Which is awesome! I love BioWare, in a bit non-critical, almost fanboyish way, and it's really cool to be on "the inside", and work with the fans, since we know BW has got the best fans in the whole world.

Remember how I said life has been crazy? Well, the craziest part must be I now have a girlfriend. Yes, I was as shocked as you. just kidding. It's the beautiful and talented fireg who has stolen my heart, and refused to give it back. We met in church, and began hanging out over christmas. Things "clicked" between us, we started dating, and have been going steady since the end of february. And I couldn't be luckier. Because she's a big geek, just like me. And haven't told me to get lost yet. just kidding. Again. But seriously, I'm very lucky to have her. Many, many <3's for you, dear.

Yes, I've written all this mostly for that last paragraph. Sorry, I just had to show off a little, because I'm so happy. And now the world seems a bit unreal, so should probably get to bed. I'll try to remember to write more.

Yeah, right!

Good night, folks!

So I'm this pretty nerdy guy, living in Norway, going to school, taking pictures, making Mass Effect stuff and watching MLP: FiM. That's what I do. I also like to play video games, playing music and chill out.

Do not hesitate to ask me about stuff. I'm cool like that.
