Saintlike cinematography

Birthday party time! Sophie and Anne celebrated their big days together and invited a whole bunch of friends to Anne's "tiny" flat to attend a Saint Patrick's themed party - everyone had to wear something Irish or green!
The girls had prepared gold coins and green jelly edible thingies.

I ate so many coins that I ended up slightly sick, haha. We talked a lot and laughed a lot about things I may or may not have already forgotten. Meaning I had a lovely time.

Gorgeous girls! Aaaand at the end of the rainbow you could find the party's gold - us. Looking beautiful just for you lot.

Drunk people, giggle giggle. And we all got these glow sticks and whoever got a green one was granted eternal good luck.

Sophie got a lot of nice things and the gifts really had a excellent diversity. Anne had put Tintin movies on her wish list and she practically got all of them - but no doubles! Quite astonishing since none of us had talked about which we should buy.

This month I have been to the theatre a ridiculous amount of times. I saw The Artist as my first alone-watch ever. And I must say it was a great experience - and the other people in the theatre were - even though all exceeding the age of 40 - so gentle offering me snacks and wanting to discuss the film afterwards. And it really was a fantastic film - the filming, the music and the actors evidently looked 1920'ies-ish.

And me and Louise went to see Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy after eating some delicious salads. Gary Oldman portrayed George Smiley wonderfully and convincingly. And Mark Strong and Benedict Cumberbatch's acting was splendid all the same. I really enjoyed it!

ACTing Anominously

Last month on the 25th (yes, I am incredibly up to date, you just keep silent) I attended the anti-ACTA demonstration. My blog will be illegal due to my usage of movie poster pictures that I am not the copyright holder of if the law is passed. So no, I am not immensely pleased by ACTA.

Before leaving home I quickly cut out some black cardboard to make the censorship-glasses haha. A lot of my friends participated which made it all the more delightful.
The demo started near Nørreport Station and we heard a few speeches before starting marching.

Some guys formed a band and they kept playing jazz music. It was so classy and really wound up a nice mood.

There were so many people attending! There had been a facebook page where about 7.000 had marked their attendance, but in the end I think we were about 11.000.

My beautiful friends.

Marching, marching, marching...
It was really fun to stop traffic like that! But I cannot understand why the busses kept driving along our walking route since the event-planners had produced a very thorough time table. They should have taken a different route for some hours!

Final destination at the Town Hall Square! Gosh, there were a lot of faces...
A lot of different speakers came to talk - politicians, comedians and ordinary people.

Confetti in the sky and bicycle reflections...
And then it was time to return home!

We walked towards the nearest station while the sun set. It was probably one of the prettiest sunsets of this year until now, so I am very glad I had my camera tugging at my neck.

Goodie night everybody!

Party Rock is in da...


I went to a LMFAO concert March 21th along with two girls from my class, Rie and Maria! We had agreed on finding and wearing the most colourful items in our wardrobes, so I decided on this! JSG is very LMFAO-ish... I guess?

The concert took place in Falkoner Salen, which actually had not been the original plan - but because of quick ticket sell-out they moved to a bigger location. The lighting was much better than it would have been in the other place, so we were really happy about it!

The warm-up guys were really good actually! They knew just how to get the crowd going even though no one knew their songs. And they went crowd surfing! A wee bit happy I was not standing where they jumped, haha, they were so sweaty!

We stood almost in the middle with only two rows of people in front of us - so great! Even though some crazy fangirl kept trying to squeeze further ahead :C

And then the Party Rock Crew went on stage and the girls around us screamed their lungs out!

One of the guys in LMFAO was sick, and we'd been so close to returning our tickets because of it. Afro dude did it great on his own though! But the backup dancers helped a lot too.

During the concert they kept throwing random object out to the audience. Anddd....

... I caught this! A foam light! I was freaking a bit out. It was silly, but you get so hyped at concerts.

It was so fun, because you could make it change colours every half second, make it blink one colour or turn it off completely when you got tired in the arm. So brilliant! And it makes a fine souvenir.

Party on!

The climax was most definitely when all lights suddenly flashed up anew and one trillion confetti strips fell down from the sky! There were so many that it was IMPOSSIBLE to see Maria or Rie through all the whiteness let alone the stage! So cool. Dizzy-making but splendid.

The last 20 minutes they started opening champagne bottles and emptying their contents across the audience. The first time we all tried to hide behind each other and screen ourselves from the wet alcohol... But by the 7th time we just did not care anymore. Which resulted in sticky skin after the concert had terminated with some WIGGLING.

It was so much fun! I am still utterly ecstatic that we went despite our second thoughts.

And yes, that is a non-relevant polaroid photo which I forgot to insert in my last post...
