The Weary Kind

Published by under Ukategorisert

weary kind

I saw Crazy Heart on Friday, the movie Jeff Bridges won an Oscar for  and boy! was it a good movie. I fell in love all over again with this amazing actor, artist and man…and the music! If you think you don’t like country music watch this movie anyway. The sore and beautiful melodies and lyrics struck my heart again and again throughout the movie. And Jeff Bridges voice..I really really like it. I listened to the soundtrack to the movie when I got home and found to my dissapointment that many of the songs from the movie were sung by other artists and not by Jeff himself on the album. I hope he’ll make an album with his version of the songs! I was so happy when I found this youtube-clip with an acustic version of one of the most beautiful songs from the movie, The Weary Kind, sung by Jeff during an interview.

A Wonderful Friday

Published by under Meg og mitt liv

A wonderful Friday (freeday!):

8.00 a.m. – 12.00 am : Breakfast with Sam, reading some articles, a shower, getting back into bed to snuggle just a few moments more with «the very sick boyfriend» (read: he has the manflu). Decided to break in my trusted two-wheeler and cycle to Uni to meet Marte for lunch.

12.30 p.m – 13.30 p.m : lunch in the cantina – left over homemade chicken soup with tortellini – and catching up with gossip.

13.30 p.m. – 15.30 p.m. : having ice cream in the herb garden in front of the biology building with three girlfriends, enjoying the sun, getting a slight sunburn on the tip of my nose, trying to identify various bugs passing by, chatting about everything from funny shaped penises to international politics and just procrastinating with almost no guilty feelings – it IS Friday, afterall.

15.30 p.m. – 17.00 p.m. :  reading some more articles, working with the essay a bit, but mostly gazing out the window  at the lovely spring weather.

17.00 p.m. – 17.30 pm : Biking down Bogstadveien (shopping street) – smiley faces sitting at sidewalk restaurants having their first outside-beer of the year - to get to the Litterature House (Litteraturhuset). Met up with a couple of friends, had my first shrimpsandwhich of the year (slice of white bread, a small mountain of cold-water shrimp, lemon, mayo and a green salad),

 and then attended the lecture «Is Darwinism past its ‘sell-by’ date ?» by the famous biology philosopher David Reuse. Very entertaining, funny AND interesting; mixed with my overall admiration for this guys’ genius, plus a sprinkle of exciting (read: crazy) Creationist interrupting the lecture by running up the aisle screaming «REFERENCES, I WANT REFERENCES!». He was briskly shown back to his seat with the notion to hold his questions till the end of the lecture, upon which he then mumbled an extremely incoherent something something none of the audience understood. So much bravado during the lecture but then when he was offered the microphone he wasn’t able to present his opinion in a proper way.  Oh well, as Mr. Ruse put it; «We’ll just have to agree to disagree».

19.30 p.m. – 20.15 p.m. : biking back up the hill with big-A…

20.15 pm – 23.3o p.m.: …to get to the lovely student pub the Amateur (Amatøren) to attend a concert of a great, great jazz band called ‘Made In Corea’. They play cover versions of songs written by the famous jazz pianist/composer Chick Corea. Being a piano-less band they compensate with guitar and vibraphone. I really enjoyed myself; the music, my mood, the atmossphere, the people I was with, even the red wine I was drinking was perfect. – A wonderful end to a wonderful day.
