Archive for December, 2007
Almost everybody downloaded this album for free from the Radiohead website. I decided to do something else and bought the limited 2 x vinyl, 2 x CD edition as an x-mas present for myself. And it’s sweet!
I like giving gifts..
..biking around kødbyen and Trentemøller kicking in on the iPod shuffle.
I love the company I work for! Not only for their awesome x-mas gift, but also because of the wonderful people that work there. Thanks for the fantastic year, guys!
I passed the Dansk Module 2 Test yesterday.
3 more modules until Prøve i Dansk 3.
1 more module after that for Studieprøven (able to communicate at university level).
2007 was the year of new things for me:
- new country
- new job
- new house
- new language
- many new friends
- first time Roskilde Festival
- first danish girlfriend
- new decade (30+)
- became uncle
- job-wise: first asp.net app, first Flex app, first Facebook plugin, first WordPress plugin
One of the best things to see live, imho, is your favorite band playing with a full-blown (about 100 people) symphony orchestra. A few of my personal favorite recordings:
- Nitin Sawhney with the Metropole Orchestra supporting the silent movie A Throw of Dice
- Portishead with the New York Philharmonic
- Bauer (dutch, but not Frans) also with the Metropole Orchestra
Know any more?
Yesterday 18:45 my little niece Emma was born. I’m now officially a proud uncle, and am already stacking up on Lego to bring back to Holland!
Two verbs that look very much alike but mean two completely different things which can lead to rather uncomfortable situations. Especially considering that knippen (pronounced like kneppe) in Dutch means klippe in Danish.
A. “Du skal også farves, ikke?”
B. “Nej, jeg skal bare kneppes!”
A. “Jeg vil gerne have et kneppekort.”
A. “Hvor mange gange skal jeg knepper, når jeg skal til Hellerup?”
