Tom Waits - Oily Night

St. Hanshaugen

These photos are taken a couple of hours ago, in a beautiful park near my home. Please excuse the quality - my camera is actually really good, but the combination of the darkness and my own patience lowered by the cold, it could maybe have been better. And I really, really want a tripod!
Hope you like it!


I love the clouds tonight, though :)


This is the view to Holmenkollen - the big ski jump.

Good night

I think it's full moon tonight. I just saw it, when I looked towards the sky as I walked out the door at my friend's house. And when I turned, I saw not a big, but big enough, amount of snow falling, and landing softly at my face and shoulders. I love life, I thought, 'cause I do.

I was with my friend, Indiana, a very musical girl, in fact, who performed her newest song for me. We've decided to work together with the desire of music that we both have, so we've spent the day mostly working on different voices together, listening to Gotye, more singing, and more listening.
This song is actually in Norwegian, and we'll make a music video, which we hope will be ready for Youtube broadcasting this fall or winter!

Good night

Leaves are falling

Hi, everybody! Now the cold is coming from what we thought was nowhere, and the forest is painted in the beautiful colors of fall. It's turning to winter, and I expect snow to be around the corner soon.

But before Oslo becomes white (then awfully grey, because of the traffic :( ) we can walk around, kikking away the leaves as we go - in halloween costumes! I'm looking foreward to Wednesday, when I'm invited in the precious anual party with my friends. This will be the tenth time! I love traditions, don't you?

Anyway, I've prepared a new drawing for you, coming out on halloween. It's the continuing picture in the story of a monster hiding. The "story" (it's really just two drawings I've decided that should belong to each other) tells you to be careful, and to look out for dangers that might not be possible to see at first. Here's the first one, enjoy:

When You Come By

My road is far to walk, my life is tough
Without you by my side
I will die faster
And everything glides out of my mind

The most uplifting thoughts are the thoughts about you
And the memories I fought to still believe in
Were true, darling
Yesterday all my doubt flew


chorus:

And every time when you come by
You smile and stare into my eyes
And in your sight the whole world's to find
And your eyes glow untill I'm blind

Now what is filling this house is a river of tears
But the tears are of joy
For here's you
Just now all my wishes came true


chorus

You can finally Take My Hand!

Now I'm pretty sure I'm finished with this damn song! It's not going to be a performance - sorry, folks! I know you really want to hear me sing (or let's at least pretend that you do XD) - you'll have to wait some more... But here's the song, anyway!


Take My Hand
I’m alive, and I’m creative
I create the road as I go
Intelligence is just a plan
I only need you, my love, to take my hand
To take my hand

Give me a nice, old, rotten rose
And I’ll show you how to make it young, with all the love we’ve got
Give me inspiration
Stay by my side, and take my hand
And take my hand

Then somehow the rainbow vanishes in front of my eyes
I don’t recognize this people crawling like a bunch of mice

What’s going on in this unfair world?
People don’t live for long
The killing scares me and digs my grave
This man in a black cloak tries to take my hand
He takes my hand

I’m dragged in, in this burning night
I miss you so deeply – I wish I may, I wish I might
I tell a star that I want my man
Then you look at me and you take my hand
She shock is sinking in –
You were taking my hand

Take My Hand continues...

I've just come up with a third verse to my song "Take My Hand"! (The first half part is to find somewhere at this blog too.) These lyrics are probably not finished - in some versions of hte song I'll probably not add this last part at all. But here it is,suddenly it's not just a love song after all:

Then somehow the rainbow vanishes in front of my eyes
I don't recognize this people crawling like a bunch of mice


What's going on in this unfair world?
People don't live for long

The killing scares me and digs my grave
This man in a black cloak tries to take my hand


He takes my hand

Turkey full of animals

I have been to a little Turkish town named Mahmutlar this fall, and I came home yesterday, after spending the night at a metalic bench at Istanbul Airport. In spite of the great "smallness" of Mahmutlar, the town is full of animals, especially cats and dogs. Here are some of the pics I took:


There's a store near by our apartment - the owners have ducks! They are walking around freely, but they seem loyal. They always stay around, and sometimes they play in the little water pit on the pavement. <3

Take My Hand

I'm alive, and I'm creative
I create the road as I go

Intelligence is just a plan
I only need you, my love, to take my hand


To take my hand


Give me a nice, old, rotten rose
And I'll show you how to make it young with all the love we've got

Give me inspiration
Stay by my side, and take my hand


And take my hand
