On repeat (the constant neverending kind)

28 Jun

I stumbled across this track a few months back on decks.de
Just recently found it online and totally had to share it.

The original track is by Leix & Hitch titled xxx coming from their EP Low Cutz out on Novo music. This is a dub mix by Spanish Uner. Slow and a bit lazy for starters and then adding the track a more raw and industrial feel which I absolutely totally and completely adore.

H.O.L.Y. crap this is good.

I’ve been over the drop at 4:06 so many times my ears bleed. Which seems like a fair price to pay.
Enjoy!

And here’s the whole Low Cutz EP for you to listen to.
I’m smitten with all 5 tracks, but still have a favored nick on Uner’s version.
Yei! (Seems like weekend already!)

Anyone with another favourite than Uner?

Til death do us f***ing part … : )

16 Apr

I. LOOOOOOVE. WORDS.
Words bend over backwards even more!

I haven’t really figured out where this slightly altered version of the wedding vows come from, but I found it on Pinterest and then here and oh my God I love it!

Beware of insanely foul language and tons of love!

… Then raise the fuck out of our kids and give you all the motherfucking love and support you’d ever need. And pay the hell out of that fucking mortgage. And then when the gutters are clogged I’ll get up that fucking ladder and clean that shit up while you stand by the kitchen window comically judging my work. And then we can vacuum the fuck out of our carpet so hard that we’ll have to get a new one.

We’ll wash our clothes so goddamn fucking hard.
Forget ‘no rinse’, we’ll use high fucking speed. Buy a fucking minivan to stuff our beautiful fucking babies into it and drive the fuck out of it. Then we can go to some fucking parent-teacher meetings and meet the fuck out of our kid’s teacher. Then judge the shit of her in the car.

And we can then pile all the children in the fucking minivan and go to the store and shop for groceries so hard that we eventually have to make more than two trips to get all that shit inside the house. And then cook the fuck out of our kitchen until we have no food left and we feast on that shit for fucking days.

I will eat the fuck out of your homemade cookies.

Then wash the shit out of the dishes together until our entire hands get fucking pruney. We’ll watch our kids fucking graduate and mother fucking tear up like the badass bosses we fucking are. We will grow so damn old together; we will look like fucking raisins.

I will fucking tell you every single second how much I fucking love you. Holding each other’s fucking hands so hard that we shit our selves. Until we die and rot as motherfucking corpses together. Till death do us fucking part.

Happily ever fucking after.

Ahahahaha … I just totally love this kind of writing!

Does anyone know where the words originally came from or who did them? If so, please tick the comment box and fill me in :) Thanks.

Why mindless doodling is a good thing

5 Apr

I was working somewhat late last night and just minutes away from brain meltdown I pushed aside the laptop and began some random doodling …

And then all of a sudden … This little fellow appeared!

Along came his friends, legs were altered and wham bam …

Online Easter Greeting!

I wish I had kick-ass evidence like this to show my teachers when I was a kid … they really weren’t believers of the “doodling in class can be good” movement.

Wishing all of you a Happy Easter and some great days of from work.
And if you’re not the easter celebrating kind of guy/gal – then have a great weekend!

The Happy Film

4 Apr

Just a quick post to share my love for this film project!

I saw Stefan Sagmeister talk at this years OFFSET festival in Dublin and I’ve been pretty smitten ever since. And I’ve been too busy working to even tell about OFFSET! Or Paris, or London – but I’ll get there! Eventually …

Back to the Happy Film!

The Happy Film centers around our main subject, Stefan Sagmeister, a New York-based graphic designer known for his rock n roll collaborations and typography. In the course of a year, Sagmeister will experiment with various practices that are widely touted as increasing one’s happiness: meditation, cognitive therapy, and pharmaceuticals.

This is the trailer that is available now. Hopefully the 12 minute clip we got to see at OFFSET will be public sometime soon. I’ll keep an eye out for it and make sure to share it.

For more on The Happy Film go here

Untill then!
Have a great easter.

14 Feb Rodriguez Jr.

This is Rodriguez Jr. – Bittersweet – in a Sebastian Radlmeier Remix, and it totally made my day.
Hope it’ll do it for you too.

Quoting Mobilee records: “After the huge success of Rodriguez Jr.‘s debut album “Bittersweet” we have two follow up remixes from techno man of the hour Christian Smith and Paso’s Sebastian Radlmeier aka Sebrok”.

I’m glad you did!

Here’s the second remix. Rodriguez Jr. – Bagpipe Woman – in a Christian Smith Remix.
Still oh so totally right up my alley. Yei!

Enjoy!

Why artists are always late …

12 Jan

Excited idea: Uh! I should totally exhibit my comics at cool local café!

23/12-11: Made arrangement with nice local cafe owner. Must send pictures of comics to him and curator.

27/12-11: Took loads of pictures of comics!

28/12-11: Took new pictures with fancier background. Needed candle lights.

29/12-11: Started working on perfectly cool presentation showing all comics from various angles, writing perfect words to describe comics in perfect details and thereby showing it all from a perfect perspective being just perfect.

30/11-11: Paralyzed with performance anxiety.

3/1-12: Opened InDesign document and decided to switch to more simple PowerPoint presentation. I made it way to complicated before!

3/1-12: Closed Power Point presentation as it looked like shit.

4/1-12: Opened Power Point presentation. Closed Power Point presentation.

6/1-12: Started thinking that cafe would probably just reject comics, so I might as well just drop it.

8/1-12: Convinced that comics suck too much to show in public.

9/1-12: Opened Power Point presentation to make sure. Yeah, def. sucks.

11/1-12: Ate obscene amount of cake to comfort me on being such a lame artist.

12/1-12: Found existing pictures, attached to email, typed e-mail address of nice local owner, hit “send”. Total time spend: 4 minutes.

December in the arts dept.

5 Jan StreetHeart_julekalender_baenkevarmer_9

Happy New Year!! (still goes right?)
Hope you’ve all been well and had the joyest of joyfullnesses!

Pulled the plug on a lot of things during December, so I haven’t shared this with you yet.

As a part of the StreetHeart Christmas Calender 24 artist were asked to create a piece between the 1st and 24th of December, making Copenhagen just a little more Christmasie and giving the guys and girls of the city something to do while waiting for A: Christmas B: The sun to come back. (Which eventually IT WILL!)

SO! tons of fun in the streets and a lot of great stuff this year.

For some reason I really wanted to wrap something. I decided to do a huge Christmas present, wrapping this otherwise grey, sad and pretty much lame concrete bench.

I wanted to make it useful for the locals, so I decided that the gift should serve as a heated bench, covering it with isolating flamingo squares before wrapping it.
Hence I called it “Bænkevarmer”. Which directly translated means “Bench-heater” which is funny-ha-ha (ha-ha) in Danish, but not really worth explaining …

Using 6 meters of oilcloth, 30 meters of red tape, 7 meters of green gift ribbon, 4 pieces of flamingo, an obscene amount of tape – and the help of some good friends – this is what the huge gift looked like.

Comfy, right?
I really enjoy the whole process of a project like this, but maybe my favourite part is when realising that it actually worked as I intended and that people get it! When I was unwrapping it the other day, one of the local dog-walkers passed by and said thanks, because he’d used it quite a deal during december and really enjoyed the warmth of the pop-up-heated-bench. Awwww … Mission accomplished.
