Don´t bury your head in a flag.

Dance Hall Funk.
Protesting with twisted signs.Protest to it´s fullest.

Grannies thinking about a new status message.

Fingern.
Isn´t it good to see some things work with all languages...

Is that Lourdes reading Sun Tzu, getting some inspiration
for her upcoming fashion empire?Sick.

Handsome we see, but devilish?

This morning I went to the most touristic
spot of my city.The forecourt of the cathedral
where all the flushed tourist gather.
I realized it´s a decided advantage to have a girl
on your side while shooting, especially other girls,
so they won´t accuse you a pervert.

I would like to see you guys running around
shooting people, to see how it goes down.
Some of them obviously realize they got shot
and I would love to see their reaction afterwards.

Some days ago I shot some pantomime that was
actually quite far away and he started yelling all over
the square, wanting some money for that..Pfff..
I mostly act like a tourist myself then and be like
"Pardon, Monsieur?"Works.

Today´s an opening for a new skateplaza at the Rhine,
as an alternative for the famous forecourt of the cologne
cathedral they now officially shut down for skateboarding.
Weather sucks, but we´ll see.

I don't know what to say but there has been a horrible terrorist attack here in Oslo and at Utøya a bit from here. There was a huge bomb in the city that shook my entire apartment so that my doors slammed shut. A man bombed the government building and then went on to a shooting rampage at a youthcamp near Oslo. This morning I woke up to the worst news ever, 85 kids were killed on a little island. Serveral people I know from school and from making movies where on the island and I was relieved to hear that they have survived. I am glad to see these young people in your pictures using their democratic rights and protesting against what they believe is wrong. All the kids on Utøya were there on a political workshop. I hope young people appreciate the opportunities and freedom they have in our democratic countries. Please send your best thoughts to the many many victims and their families in Oslo today. This entry can hardly explain what we feel or even describe what has happened, but it's the best I can do.

Holy shit Emilie, this is terrible. So sorry to hear this. So much death today. Amy Winehouse died too. If you are that angry just kill yourself, not other people.
Posted By: ed on July 23rd, 2011 at 12:48PM PST
I saw it on the Tele a few minutes ago.
I just can´t believe how a single person can shoot so many people...
at a lake, a forest.....I´m sorry for your pain, Emilie.

Amy just did what postars/musicians do for decades.

Holy shit. I found out Amy Winehouse died on Tumblr and that terrorist attack here. Dang. Kinda good news though.

I just bought Mozipedia from a Border's that was closing. I'm excited to go home and read it. The lady that checked me out said she got to seem him live in Bakersfield. Envy.

So. Next project...Teenage fuckers?

Good news meaning Amy Winehouse

I agree Ed, he was some crazy nationalist nazi guy who hated the labourparty for allowing foreigners and refugees to enter Norway. He was an evil racist who went on a solo crusade against kids who were true idealists who
wanted an open country with a multikultural population. Of course the media speculated in this being al qaida and other islamist organisations, but they had to swollow their words as it became known this was a homegrown maniac. Hated knows no religion or colour of skin.

Okay, I got it >hidemyass.
Yeah! That´s the song, but the live version sounded much
better than the recorded version.
Thanks, amigo.
