Arcade Fire!

Went to see Arcade Fire tonight with Lena and Öfi. Still the best band in the world! Even though it was in the shitty Zenith in Munich the sound was exhilirating and the band had so much power. Not as emotional as the 2007 show at the Tonhalle but still gave me the chills.
I really love the new album "The Suburbs" but it was the songs from "Funeral" that did it for me. They played "Power Out" with a direct transition to "Rebellion Lies" which was my personal highlight.
Thank you!

"No Cars Go"

Oh, and the opening act "Fucked Up" from Toronto played and their genre could be described as Screamo-Hardcore-Punk-Metal. Definitely not something you would expect from a Arcade Fire opening band. But on the otherside, people that go to an AF concert probably would never go see that type of band. So it seemed like an interesting "concept"

See you in another 3 years.

Headed over to Isen to celebrate late thanksgiving with the parents and friends of the family. Too much wine and way too much food. Fantastic as every year!

The hosts, Mom and Dad.

The Harrises looking forward to loads of turkey.

Moms famous pumpkin pie.

Dad treated us to some fantastic wine.

Lena is sceptic if she will ever be able to eat again.

Jeff "Chef" Ely thinking about which book to get next for his Kindle.

Dad and the rest of the turkey...which we will be feeding from for the next two weeks.

Trysil x Oslo x Berlin x Munich x Isen

Just arrived at my hotel in Oslo, waiting for my flight home. Can't wait to visit my parents for thanksgiving.

Here some impressions from our trip to Trysil.

Trysil, Norway

Just arrived in Trysil, Norway for the Sweet Rumble contest. I'm here with our Forum riders Peter König and Simon Gruber and joining us to make himself feel important is Isenseven rider turned Forum teammanager Chris "Bignose" Patsch. Also swiss brosef Mario Käppeli is here with us and new Isenseven rider Kevin Bäckström from Sweden will be joining us for some good time pre-season filming/riding/partying/hanging with the crew.

I got to hang out at the Oslo airport for 4 hours waiting for the rest of the crew. I seriously have never spent so much time at any other airport than Oslo. All together over the last 4 years I've probably spent over 40 hours waiting at Gardermoen. At least there's lots of Pølse to eat, Snus to buy and pretty girls to watch there.

3 hours of bus riding later we arrived in Trysil where it's about -15° C and on the way to the hotel we got to watch our friends slip on the ice which was fun. We are in the Radisson Blu Resort hotel and it's pretty sweet. There's probably like one million rooms, an indoor surfing wave, spa and all the other shenanigans a luxury hotel needs. And a beer in the mini-bar is only 8 Euros. What a bargain. I'll have to ration my one beer over the entire week or else I'll go broke.

The hotel lobby.

So it's up to the mountain tomorrow for some park laps with the crew. Looking forward to the first shoot of the season. I'll keep y'all posted.

Tron Legacy

I cannot wait for this movie! The entire Soundtrack is done by Daft Punk, so it just has to be off the hook.
