Number One Hundred – and the last Blog from me?

I have reached the end of the journey with making this Blog. I realise that I have lost the energy, and its time to continue with new Projects . That it became blog number 100 is absolutely an coincidence. I just counted and found out that this is the hundred. I don’t know if I will be starting up again later, so lets call this a break. I am just moving my priorities to something else. Thank you for following so far. I hope you have enjoyed and that this has opened up for some new experiences.

See you out on the Dancefloor – in the real world.

Movies

There is a couple of places where you can watch free movies in Copenhagen. Unfortunately both are on wendesday. Right next to my doorstep is Urban 13 in a red box under the freeway Bispebuen. They are showing both documentarys and Feature films and there is an introduction in English. Reminds me of the time I was in charge of the cinema in Ungdomshuset Jagtvej. Its warm and cozy and there are bar open. https://www.facebook.com/events/177105680193576/
The other place is at The Cathedral Vor Frue Kirke in Nørregade. They are not announcing the program, but you can lie down on fatboys an watch it on a big screen. https://www.facebook.com/events/1011788159206648/

Support the small venues

I prefer concerts in small venues rather then the big arena concerts, with world brand bands. In the small places You are much closer to the stage and the performers, than sitting ½ a mile away and watch everything on a screen. And generally speaking I prefer to stand up at a concert. If you cant dance, its not my kind of place.
Another thing is the prices of the big concerts. It often cost 6-700 kr. and going up to 1000 kr. for a ticket. I would think it would be cheaper, when there are more people? If you are selling 10.000 or 45.000 tickets then it should be cheaper than the 120 tickets they are selling at a small venue. In the small places it cost 50 – 100 kr. I know there is a lot of crew and the show is bigger, and there is more security at the Arena concerts – But where is the money going? Into the pockets of Live Nation, who are the worst concert maker.
So you wont find me at Parken or Royal Arena. No matter who is playing. There are many reasons to find a smaller place. The beer is both better and cheaper. Halleluja and praise the Beer.

Cinema
If you are feeling board back home in your sofa, its possible to get some inspiration about what to do about it. Nordic Adventure Film Festival (Naff) is taking place in Cinemateket, and shows a whole bunch of movies. Then you can go out and do something yourself. You Live in Denmark. Another life is possible.
