Moods of Norway had one of their staff-parties at Café de Concert two days ago, and boy was that a blast!! Earlier that day Metier also had an artistic soirée at CdC, before heading off to Sjømagasinet at Tjuvholmen for a lovely dinner. Here I am, sitting on the beach with the rest of my staff, before game time for Metier!

Check out my main sponsor Metier´s new website! "Tomorrow´s project developement - today!" -
Kan godt tenkes Metier er noe for din bedrift! I så fall må du hilse fra meg :) Metier er nemlig den ledende totalleverandøren innen prosjektledelse og projsektstyring i Skandinavia!
MORGENDAGENS PROSJEKTLEDELSE. I DAG.
Metier er i dag den ledende totalleverandøren innen prosjektledelse og prosjektstyring i Skandinavia. I over 30 år har vi bistått prosjektvirksomheter i å nå deres forretningsmål gjennom riktige og effektive prosjekter.  Gjennom fokusert innsats og gjennom kun å holde på med prosjektledelse har vi utviklet selskapet til å bli den ledende innen vårt marked. Det er summen av erfaring, kunnskap og miljø som har gitt oss denne posisjonen. Metier er i dag et av landets fremste fagmiljø innen prosjektledelse. Gjennom riktig kompetanse, forbedring av arbeidsprosesser og innføring av effektive og moderne styringssystemer, bidrar vi til at våre kunder gjennomfører gjentatte vellykkede prosjekter. Metiers fokus på prosjekt og prosjektledelse har skapt gode resultater både for oss og våre kunder. Kompetansenivået innen prosjektledelse er høyt i Norge, men fremdeles erfarer vi altfor mange unødvendige prosjektoverskridelser og mislykkede prosjekter. Metiers formål vil derfor fortsatt være å profesjonalisere prosjektvirksomheter og sikre enkeltprosjekter. Vi skal gjøre det vi kan for å innfri våre kunders forventninger og bidra til mange vellykkede prosjekter fremover.

Arte TV from German NDR followed me a couple of days "in concert", "in private" and also "on a political matter". In front of the Munch Museum I told them exactly what I meant regarding the incompetent administration at the Museum and also regarding the complete lack of responsability by the Norwegian Goverment which has led to the misery of Munch´s status in Norway at this point. Felt pretty good to let Germany know how things work around here... I had such a great time with Astrid, Wolfgang (camera) and Mathias (sound) in Das Munch Museum @ Café de Concert!! And I showed them around in Oslo in this nasty little thing from Porsche Center Oslo...

Paintings on wood by Ida Abotnes, I absolutely love her style!! My good friend Anette Trettebergstuen (letf in photo, fabulous politician) introduced me to the Minister of Culture this weekend, serving hot dogs and champagne - this we like! So I invited the Minister for coffee at Café de Concert. About time the Norwegian Goverment and Café de Concert starts to collaborate. Just signed a superdupercool collaboration with Pareto Productions, (Frode and Andrea - left in photo) they will be behind the cameras pimping and pumping up Café de Concert on your videoscreen. Enjoy the videos coming up! I love beeing a concert pianist.

(My homie Øyvind Fritzen, above to the right, used to play pro b ball, next to him is Stian Emil Berg who is currently playing college b ball in Florida, and he´s standing next to his father - my former coach when I played with Fritzen before he went pro....and I went crazy: Mr. Pål Berg) It was raining cats and dogs outside Café de Concert in Oslo last Wednesday. So Aksel decided to call some good friends and invited them to a "Basketball Get Together". This is how we roll on a rainy day - at Café de Concert. Staff from Jura Coffee - coolest staff in the world! DJ Fartman swingin' it! Café de Concet´s Poppel serving you  some funky shit! Game time....!!!
