Lyn – Stabæk
I was the only one who attended from the SMEx group, but this was probably the funniest part of my evening. Good match, several interesting goals, but ended up in a draw, 2-2. Funny thing: The match was @ Ullevål, Lyn’s home stadium but Stabæk had more supporters than Lyn and sang “Hjemmebane” (home stadium), ouch!
Roger Federer 5 7 7 3 16
Andy Roddick 7 6 6 6 14
This was the main reason everybody were late at Billabong. Federer had a bit of trouble kicking Andy Roddick’s ass, but after an incredible last set, Federer is back up on the top of the world ranking. And man, what a match… 50 aces by Federer!
3D glasses chaos
This was really annoying! First, they charge 20 kroner extra for the tickets. Second, they charge an additional 10 kroner per pair of 3d glasses and we had to stand in a 15 meter long queue to buy them. Luckily, Espen saved us from the madness by cheating the queue. The cashier was pissed, but we won.
I thought the movie itself was very disappointing, and it had a lot of logic flaws. Where does the rain and sun come from?
I liked the other two Ice Age movies, but this one was actually even boring from time to time. I read a review before going to the movie, and he said that there were no pauses in the movie and everything was so brilliantly created and melted together. What?!
Normally the most funny part, is the one with Scrat, but this time it was almost hopeless. However, there is a new character, Buck, that isn’t bad at all, and it’s actually Simon Pegg that does his voice. He’s brilliant!
This really was the part that saved the movie. If you forget for a second that it was kinda blurry sometimes and that you got sick of wearing glasses, there were some really cool effects. I think the coolest scenes were when they were flying on a Pterosaur and Sid was sliding down in the snow with the 3 eggs.

Last sunday was an interesting experience. First of all, we were only the board members and two guests, the rest of the crew bailed out. Shameful. Then again who wants to go out with a weird mix of people still devastated by Joen’s goobye party, shady eastern-europeans and one oddly normal board member who was the only one there to keep things sane?
So on a dark and annoyingly wet sunday evening we stopped at the Park Lounge to share out painful thoughts and then headed out to Ringen for a dose of oldschool drama. What Ringen provided us with was a 20-minute – I kid you not, twenty – marathon of fast-paced ads. I’m thinking somehting was fucked with their system again and they just rolled ads till our eyes weeped, our ears bled and out brains melted.
And then the movie started. What do you get when yoi mix up an old guy, his old dog and a couple of punks with a shotgun? Good times, apparently. What you don’t want to be doing in your life is upsetting old military veterans that look like a grizzly bear with a hat and pair of gloves. And own a bunch of shotguns themselves. Only that they know how to use them better than you do. And can take a serious beating and still shoot you in the dark.
It is a peculiar movie, quite slow at most of the times, relaxing in a small-town kind of way and quite stunning in some of the stranger parts of the story. I wouldn’t call it a total waste of time, but then again I wouldn’t recommend it for its entertainment value either. What I will do is to call it “different than usual” and remind you not to leave a review of a boring movie to a guy that had to fight off a heavy alcohol poisoniing. Or maybe you should, I dunno.

It is my pleasure to write the review of the most attended SMEx event ever: All in all we were 20 SMExers! Most of the crowd met in the basement of a nice bar nearby the cinema, we almost occupied three quarters of the available space. After a few beer and feeding Anton with the money for really many entrance tickets we went to the Colosseum, a really nice and big cinema with a shiny large screen. In this cinema even some not-so-good movies will probably look good. Of course the one we saw was much better than that, the new James Bond with Daniel Craig:
It had the real good locations like Italy, Haiti, England, Austria and Bolivia. Right from the start there’s action and that covers most of the rest of the film. It also had sentimental moments and even room for feelings, Daniel Craig really is a different Bond. That’s part of why he’s so good as James Bond and all in all I really enjoyed the movie. This might even be the action movie to recommend to your wife, I’ll find out this Friday.
While the action scenes had perfect choreography and sometimes almost seemed too realistic I didn’t like the fact that the filmmakers obviously tried to make them faster by cutting close-ups into them every other millisecond, but that’s all I had to criticise. I can’t really say which of the two Daniel Craig films was better, Casino Royale had a slightly better plot and slower action scenes which I enjoyed more. However there were also those long poker scenes, these long slowdowns are almost gone in Quantum of Solace. The best about the new movie is that it starts where the first one ends so you can have the full James Bond experience with something like watching part one and two on the same day; we actually did that. Quantum of Solace probably also works if you watch it without having seen Casino Royale, though. Btw, in the end Espen really confused a cinema guard by asking him to take a picture of all of us inside the theater. Actually that guy took a few pictures and you can see the result in the gallery.
This day was very special for me in several ways. Markus, a good friend of me, and I were in Oslo to visit Adam and Else, I was allowed to attend Friday Beer at Opera (I even sorta shook hands with Jon) and we had a big party on Saturday with rocket fuel from our hometown Celle (read more about all that here). It was a great honour that we also were allowed to enjoy the full SMExperience on our last evening in Oslo, thank you everybody!
