Youngstorget, Oslo, Norway

The best laid plans of mice and men ...

Today's post was going to be about the Katzenjammer concert at Rockefeller last night. (It was fantastic - even better than the one in November. Srsly.) We had a great time (there were seven of us who went together). Sold out again, and the girls totally rocked the house. :-D I took lots of pictures ... a bunch of them came out really well ... and some videos too, one of them pretty funny and one of a song that they haven't recorded (a cover, originally by some now-defunct band that I've never heard about). But I'm having trouble with Youtube, it's taking a million years to upload anything ... and I can't fiddle with this all day. I'm going to the Cinematheque at six (I'm doing it, I'm totally doing it!) and I have to go shopping first, Raphael needs a new lightbulb for his basking lamp and I probably need to pick up some food for tonight ... and maybe I'm meeting Gunnar of unfiltered perception fame for a cup of hot chocolate before the movie. :-) And after the movie I have to literally rush off, to KAS and trilltrall's house to watch TV. Yay. :-) Tonight is the first semifinal of the Norwegian ESC selection, so obviously we must watch intently. It intrigues us. Not sure I'll get there in time, though ... but chase play is a wonderful thing. ;-)

Anyway ... what was I saying? Oh yeah. Stupid Youtube won't upload my videos properly. >:-( Growl. So the Katzenjammer post will have to wait ... instead, here are some other pictures I took last night. I was waiting for trilltrall to meet me at Youngstorget (a big square in downtown Oslo) and since I had nothing better to do I took some pictures. I just stood by the fountain and turned 360 degrees and took these. It was at about 8pm. They came out pretty well. I mean ... kind of fun to look at. :-) So ... here's a bit of Oslo for you to enjoy. It's nice here in the summer, honest ...

Good luck to Katzenjammer at the Spellemann awards tonight ... !!!!!

Thanks, glad you enjoyed. :-) Although 'pretty' is perhaps not the word I would use. ;-)

Rose, you guys should totally be here now - there is SO MUCH SNOW, piles of it two-three meters tall in lots of places. You would have loved our weather on Saturday, I think. ;-) I've got plans for more 'show off Oslo' posts, and I'll keep 'em coming at least till you get yourself over here ... !! ;-)
