Saskatoon






I was in Saskatoon this weekend.

It was heaven. Heavier than heaven.
Radisson hotel rooms.

So beautiful the city was, so clearly the sun in the sky shone, so wonderful the people were...

Missing it already.


All that jazz

Absolutely fabowlingous.
Jeg har aldrig været specielt stor fan af bowling, men her i Yorkton er det en magisk oplevelse.. Så specielt, så intimt og sjovt, med fluoriscerende lys og minimale baner. Meget amerikanisk med inspiration fra 50'ernes milk-shake barer og sort/hvid-ternede linoleumsgulve.. en nat at huske.

Amanda, colour edition.

superfunky bowling shoes.

Hump de bump, baby
Cool kids.


Soundtrack: Old groovy stuff, M.I.A & Red Hot Chili Peppers/Hump de Bump

Must have been a hundred miles
Any of a hundred styles
It's not about the smile you wear
But the way we make out
When I was another loner
Nothing but a two beach comber
Anybody seen the sky?
I'm wide awake now
Workin' the beat as we speak
Working the belle du monde
Believe in the havoc we wreak
Believin' is that so wrong

Malene, jeg er der.

Malene, jeg savner dig og elsker dig.

Jeg blir så ked af det når jeg tænker på at jeg ikke kan være der og holde dig i hånden og
kramme dig og støtte dig. Være der.
Men jeg er der.
Jeg prøver at ringe, du ved hvor svært det er.




Malene, min skat <3

Saskatchewan, harvest season.

Mystery Jets/Kate Nash/Emilius min elskede <3

Grain.

London baby/Laura Marling memories

we shoot raccoons.

New Romantic

Soundtrack: Laura Marling/New Romantic
I know I said I loved you but I'm thinking I was wrong,
I'm the first to admit that I'm still pretty young,
and I never meant to hurt you when I wrote you ten love songs.
but a guy that I could never get
'cause his girlfriend was pretty fit
and everyone who knew her loved her so.
and I made you leave her for me
and now I'm feeling pretty mean,
but my mind has fucked me over more times
than any man could ever know.

D is for Denmark

Today I felt a teensy bit homesick. It was bad, but now I feel so much better that I can look back on it merely as a little bump in the road.
So, I want to pay a little tribute to some of the things in Denmark that are memories and that I am not missing out on, because they are all in the past. But God, were they good memories..
Last party on earth.
Lasses seksuelle overgreb, Peters black-out,
Malenes gryntende kære søvn og min mors
røde trylle-ryllestav...

Cindy.

Fulde af kærlighed.

Danmarks smukkeste festival, Tue West,
Ak, vand til knæene og blærebetændelse.
Det var det hele værd.
Soundtrack: M.I.A/Paper Planes
I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name
If you come around here, I make 'em all day
I get one done in a second if you wait
Sometimes I feel sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I'm clocking that game
Everyone's a winner we're making that fame
Bonafide hustler making my name

en lørdag i september

These days, I read Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
and The Chosen by Chaim Potok
- both I recommend -
Have YOU ever seen this many different kinds
of Doritos-chips? If no, you're probably Danish too.
Wal-Mart. Read the book "Where the heart is" by Billie Letts
and you'll understand.
Me in my room at the cabin by the lake.. wearing a
night gown borrowed of Maralee.. So comfy and cute :)
Me, I look mean, but I kind of like this picture..
Soundtrack: Jamie Cullum/Photograph
Her name was written on the photograph,
right next to her red, sunburnt face,
it all had happened in that long tall grass,
about a mile from her old place,
I can't remember how it started
and if it lasted that day in the sun.
We said that we were going to study hard,
we held our books instead of hands,
she held a blanket over cans of beer,
I can't deny I was so full of fear.
It's just another story caught up in another photograph I found.
and it seems like another person lived that life a great many years ago from now,
there's the first time that I tried that stuff,
I think I look a little green,
I remember throwing up behind a bush,
and I found it hard to use my feet,
and who's that easily led little boy who's really off his head?
It was the same night that I kissed that girl,
the tall one with the auburn hair,
I remember laughing 'cos to kiss me,
she had to sit down on a chair.
she tasted like the schnapps she'd drunk,
and the cigarette she'd stolen from her mum.

And it's just another story caught up in another photograph I found.

Autumn



Soundtrack: Kate Nash/Merry Happy
Watching me like you never watched no-one
Don't tell me that you didn't try and check out my bum
'cause I know that you did
'cause your friend told me that you liked it

Gave me those pearls and I thought they were ugly
Though you try to tell me you that you never loved me
I know that you did
'cause you said it and you wrote it down

I can be alone, yearh, I can watch a sunset on my own
I can be alone
I can watch a sunset on my own.

Ease & Disease

I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yearh
I'm high but I'm groundedI'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful, baby

I was sick but now I'm better :)
Place sticker on forehead. Smile.
Entertainment when sick

My PJ's; cake pants and Canada top

Me at home, sick & in bed
I look horrible but I'd been sick all night.
I'm starting to feel better in this shot, so
I think it's kindof sweet :)

and Jacqueline gave me flowers in school :)
Sountrack: Alanis Morissette/One Hand in my Pocket

Going once, going twice

.. SOLD!
Søndag, hviledagen, tog familien til en stille del af Yorkton, til ukrainsk udendørs auktion. Det var ret sjovt og spændene, og vi fik købt nogen FUND! Maralee slog hurtigt til og købte desuden denne smukke, fine, retro kuffert samt alt hvad der nu lige var på det respektive bord, for $1,50. Only in Saskatchewan :)
beautiful retro stove

Hannah, covered in steals - suitcase by her feet is mine!

blue baby going for $40.. it needed a lot of work, but still!

My New Suitcase - thank you, Maralee!

Me and my much beloved suitcase, haha, have no idea how
to get it back home someday :)

Manitoba













Efter mødet kørte vi igennem Kamsack og helt østpå, til Manitoba. Vi kørte ind i et bjørnereservat, og det var simpelthen bare så SMUKT! Vi havde det rigtigt sjovt, både i bilen (vi legede ninjaer og jeg lærte Hannah at synge nogen Natasja sange som fx "Fi er min", dog uden oversættelse :b) og udenfor i skoven :b
Desuden har jeg nu allerede været i tre forskellige canadiske provinser :b (Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba!)
