I just realized it has been over 3 months since my last blog entry, and decided to write a quick update of what has been going on since my last post.
The holiday I had was very lengthy and relaxing - an excellent way for me to fully recharge my depleted batteries; A couple weeks enjoying the mediterranean sun in southern France
, a trip to London visiting my brother and his family and a few weeks of partying with Steve
who once again came to visit (including a cool trip to visit Leon - a mutual friend from highschool - in Copenhagen), and just relaxing in general felt very good indeed. I had been working rather hard without having much time off for a while (read: browser for Nintendo Wii
) so this was needed before starting in my new job here at Aspiro AS
Speaking of Aspiro, I have now settled in nicely here and as I write this I sit at my desk looking down at Egertorget and Stortinget
subway station examining all the weird people outside. I now work on the backend for the Telenor
online/mobile music shops which is very cool in many ways, especially for a musician like myself
We also went on a company wide kickoff trip to Jurmala, near Riga in Latvia - which in itself is an entire chapter of good times and drunkenness
Another cool little update is the fact that I hooked up some Apple iPhones
for me and a few mates, and we were lucky enough to get in on the batches right before they started shipping with firmware 1.1.1 which is as of yet has not been successfully unlocked
While it does have its shortcomings, I am absolutely digging it like I hoped I would - the entire experience and features far outweighs the few negative issues for me personally.
When it comes to Domi
, we're still going strong; rehearsing and playing shows whenever (our producer) Andreas is working in London, and recording in the studio when he is in Oslo. This on and off way of working, where we typically get in a day or two in the studio every two-three weekes, means it still will take a while before the album is ready... but good things come to those who wait. At least that is what they say
