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.

Read This: “All of Europe will bow to the majesty of GWAR! We will destroy your cities and consume all of your drugs.

Full Speed into X-Mas

We are entering X-Mas Month and Black Friday craziness, but luckily there are also somebody clever, who has invented Buy Nothing Day or Green Friday. I think I have enough of material things already, so I am doing like I always do – and buy the food I need. Which is not much, because I am also a Dumbster guy.
So stay cool. The material things will not make you a happier person. Love, affection an live music will.

X-mas markets are starting up, and you can find one in the weekend at Blågårds Plads. Jægersborggade Designmuseum Den Røde Plads Admiral Gjeddes Gård
