From music to movies...

It's been a while since I posted something on this blog, hence it's been a while since I wrote something about my work. Well, in my blog post in May 2016, I already mentioned that I had written five reviews for the May 2016 print issue of Northern Norway's biggest student magazine "Utropia" and that one of those reviews was some kind of debut for me. Well, I wrote four CD reviews - and my very first DVD review (about the German TV series "Deutschland 83"). It feels good to break new ground.

In the meantime, a few more print issues were published, including one LIVE review, two CD reviews and one DVD review written by me. 

The LIVE review was a little surprising to me. Indeed, we visited the three biggest open air festivals in Tromsø and surroundings in summer 2016, but overall, we have become a lot less active when it comes to visiting concerts and festivals. It's a subject that may be worth a separate blog post in the future. The LIVE review is about one of those three biggest open air festivals in Tromsø and surroundings, namely the Bukta Tromsø Open Air Festival 2016 with the one and only Iggy Pop as a headliner.

After this one LIVE review, I continued with my current main focus (CD reviews) and came across two album releases which both scored full points: New Model Army's "Winter" and The Veils' "Total Depravity". Once again: There is still good music out there; you just have to search for it.

Although I take much pleasure in writing CD reviews, I'm aiming to write more DVD reviews in addition, and I already did so with my DVD review in the current print issue (about "By The Sea", starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt aka "Brangelina"). The upcoming print issue is going to include another DVD review written by me, about Walt Disney's "Alice Through The Looking Glass". Like I said, it feels good to break new ground.

New Order's "Music Complete", The Black Marbles' "Best Believe It EP" 
and Irma Agiashvili's "Behind Space"
