Diane Cluck's Song-of-the-week-project!

Hello friends! I will now present to you a project i am really hoping will be realised: Diane Cluck's Song-of-the-week-project!
Diane Cluck is one of my favourite song makers, and her music is like glittering pieces of magic. The first song i heard and instantly fell in love with was "easy to be around" and there was something strange about it and her other songs - they didn't catch me right away, but i still kept listening for some reason - there was something about them, a feeling that couldn't be explained. and one by one they started to grow and bloom in my ears, and now i love all of her songs. I never get tired of listening to them.
in december 2011 she was on 'spinning on air' - where she is interviewed and she plays a mix of new and old songs, and it's really cosy.

Song-of-the-week is a project that will go on for six months. every week she will write, record and distribute a song, ending with a total of 24 songs. The project need subscribers to come true and there are different levels of subscriptions. Take a look and listen to some of her songs, maybe you'll like it too. she also has a shop on her website where you can listen to her songs. regardless, this music means a lot to me - which is why i'm sharing! :)

the days that ended.

Christmas and EndOfYear-events have passed, as well as my days as an intern at Mikrofilm. Because i had such a lovely time, i am going to post some photos. Everyone i met in Norway has been really great, but especially Lise and Kajsa - thank you! :)

And these are some photos from my last days. In this one Cathinka and Magnhild are decorating the studio for the annual christmas party.

the cosy christmas party:

Leftovers from the christmas party, and my last day at mikrofilm.

happy lunch times with leftover food from the party.

And in the evening, which was my last evening in Oslo as well, Lise took me to a christmas presents making workshop with her family. Seemingly, i tend to build houses by default now :)

This next photo is taken by Andreas. quite unexpectedly in the middle of the christmas party i suddenly got presents! lovely books ! :)

these are the books: three comics and a rather large book with wonderful photos of brilliant paper crafts!

thank you, all of you!
and merry christmas and happy new year! :)
