I have no other word for it.

My 2009 - New Year's to New Year's:

Arrival of Glenn - showing up at New Years and then moving into my house! I hadn't seen him since 2005 when I booked his first live for our club Startling!

Painting my hallway golden (I might be getting a little tired of that...)

Studying film music at Stockholm University and graphic design for print at Södertörn University College

Long glittery winter walks

Karolina getting her first own flat

Going to London with Glenn over the weekend for a gig of his
Our first trip together, my birthday and a friend of his dying

Finally getting my first tattoo - the anchor

Getting funding to go to Japan with Jessica for a film project

Long summer walks, Sthlm being at its' very best, all lush and sunny

Going to Seinäjoki (work), Berlin (pleasure) and Karelia (family)

Longing for Berlin paired with an autumn increase in creativity

Glenn and I starting DJing and making music together: Colouroïd

The birth of Jessica's and Kalle's daughter - Ellis

Intensifying the work with our Nordic tango documentary

Making big plans for the future and longing to become more crafty and less computery, both in film, illustration and other creative biz, longing to discover new techniques and realizing so many more of my oh so many ideas

30 m2 New Year's Rave

Mycket fina bilder och kul läsning. Det låter fint att ha ett dj-projekt ihop med sin partner. Att dj:a är en hemlig dröm jag när...

Det är jätteroligt att DJa. Speciellt när man är två, tycker jag.

Det är fint att köra tre var, då kan man bygga upp nåt och lämna den andre med en utmaning!

Speciellt roligt är det när man är omgiven av sina vänner.

Gört!
