So - 01.12.2013 I went to my third and last Queens of The Stone Age of the year. And it was fucking incredible. Hands up - amazing! I could go on writing about how good it was, but the fact that I've already seen them six times, and I still come back for more, should say it all. So a big thank you to Queens of The Stone Age, for making 2013 to an amazing music year, with the release of ...Like clockwork, and brilliant live performances. ♥
Last night I got back to London after a long weekend in Oslo with Zahra and Katrine. We spent our days drinking hot chocolate while walking around town, trying to survive the freaking cold. Sunday night we saw Band of Skulls and Queens of The Stone age at Oslo Spektrum, but that deserves a blog post of it's own.
So, tomorrow I'm meeting up with Zahra after work to go the airport, before we head to Oslo to see Katrine, do some sightseeing, eat loads of food, and then Sunday night we're off to see Queens of The Stone Age. Last and third QOTSA gig this year. Hopefully this one will go down with a bang! Which I'm sure it will, with the UK's finest three piece Band of Skulls playing support.
My bag is absolutely not packed, and I have no idea of what to bring. As I'm only traveling with hand luggage I'm kind of struggeling. The fact that Oslo probably will be freezing is not helping either. Oh well, after all of my traveling this year I'm almost a globe trotter, so this should be fine.
I was lucky enough to go and see Queens of The Stone Age play at Wembley arena last night, and it was exactly how I thought it would be, mind blowing. They are by far the best live band I have ever seen, and they just keep amazing me. Lucky as I am, I've got one more gig lined up before the end of the year, as I'm going to Oslo next weekend to see them in Spektrum. That'll be my third time of seeing them in three months, and my sixth time in total. Not bad.
It's been years since last time I went to Oslo, and Friday in 11 days I'm going back. As I don't really know where I should go for lunch, dinner or shopping, I figured I'd ask here. I've already been recommended Delicatessen, and I seem to recall that Åpent Bakeri was quite good. If anyone's got any other suggestions - hit me.
Zahra and I went to see Troy Van Leuween's Sweethead at Camden Barfly last night. It turns out Brody Dalle was there as well which is pretty cool, but somehow I didn't spot her in that tiny venue.
Anyway, it was a good night and we had loads of fun. Ended up dancing for hours, before we grabbed some food and headed back to mine. So far today's been spent on the sofa eating pizza and watching TV, but I guess I should get up soon, as I've got some errands to run.
I found this little gem in "Bertha's Oldebarn" in Bergen last time I
went home. I love skeletons and skulls, so for 85 NOK it had to come
home with me. My dad also treated me to an early christmas present from
the same shop, a skull mug in gold from Kühn Keramik that I've been
dreaming of since I saw it in August.
