Motorcycle and Spain

By the way! I settled for and bought a motorbike a few weeks back. It's a Suzuki SV 650 in a brazen orange colour. I haven't decided on a name yet :) It's a lot easier getting up in the morning when I have a bike-ride to look forward to!

Here's some grainy pictures of the beauty:

I spent easter in Spain climbing the area known as Siurana. It was awesome and I'm falling in love with sportsclimbing. Looks like I'll have to spend some more money on gear!

The valley. This was our playground every day for a week!

Andreas coming down

I wish I could take credit for this climb, but this was Gustavo. Awesome!

on another note, I'm trying out ads on the site. I want them to be unobtrusive and related to the content of the blog so I'll give 'em a few weeks trial.  if they misbehave or learn bad manners they're out.


A little over a month ago I told you I'd give you more information on "The Project" (tm) when something solid was decided. Well, nothing solid has been decided yet. In the meantime you'll have to settle for the antics of my brother and I as we try to capture some ideas for a fight sequence. We ended up filming said sequence on saturday night and I think it's gonna turn out awesome when finished! We have some really good shots in there and had loads of fun shooting it.

Oh, and if you don't speak danish you won't catch a word of this. Maybe you'll still be entertained though, but I doubt it. Actually, there's no guarantee even if you do speak danish. Anyways, enough with the excuses already!

By the way, check out my brother's awesome blog!

Status report

The project took some good steps in the right direction today. You'll have to bear with me for a few weeks more until something solid is decided, but I can let you in on a few tasty details.

1) It will involve travel.
2) We have a dedicated camera-man currently employed by a national tv-station on board.
3) I'm getting excited!

In completely unrelated irrelevant news, I went and looked at used motorbikes today. I had my eyes on a Honda VT 600 C Shadow, but it turned out to be too small for my lanky frame. I couldn't get my eyes off of a golden-bronze Suzuki SV 650, but I reckon I'll settle for something a bit cheaper for this season just to regain my bearings on a bike.

This will be off to a rocky start.

I have many dreams I want to live. Passions I want to nurture and grow into projects. For a long time I've felt that I haven't done enough to nurture them. Yesterday, I decided to start realizing one such passion project. The world was mine for the taking and I knew it.

This morning however, I was greeted by a huge monster standing next to my bed. It woke me up early. Way earlier than comfort dictated. It was ugly. It was huge. It made me sick.

All day it followed me around. I couldn't see it. I couldn't get a hold of it. But I knew it was there. From the way it made my stomach hurt. From how it made my head spin. I could hear it. A whisper, but a penetrating one. The contrast from the day before, when everything seemed possible was shattering. I'm here again and I hate it.

That's when I realized. I'd seen it before. I knew its name. It was Phobos. Fear. And this time I wouldn't let it win.

It took me hours and I wanted to run several times, but I kept working on my project. Trying to reclaim that feeling I'd felt the day before. I could not let it win. Not again. Not this time.

I gradually realized that this particular one and I go way back. Every time I've tried to go for something, this guy shows up. What was it about living my dreams that scared me so much? Living my dreams! What could possibly be horrible about that?!?

Suddenly I realized. This is my fear:

If I decide to realize one of my dreams I'll close off access to every other passion I've ever dreamed of living. I put everything in one basket and nothing else will ever come to fruition. If this one thing fails, I will be doomed to a life of shame and regret I will never be able to look another person in the eye.

But I see you, Phobos. I am looking you in the eye. I have you by the throat. I will show you no mercy. You will die. Now.

A new beginning

This marks a new beginning for several new projects I'm starting. Stay tuned.
