Filming and recording a selection of poems for a school study book published by Aschehoug publishers yesterday. Got a little shock when I saw the filming of myself and realised I didn't look or hear like a 28 year old cheeky young man anymore!
Thanks to a rat, which slipped into someone's personal library, I got a series of new repair jobs; starting with Erling Okkenhaug's family heirlooms, which were partially eaten by a rat. The rat survived, and the books look better than they have for a long time.
As with all things, this job started a minor wave of similar activity.

yesterday I recorded 'The godfather stories' about my Godfather, Buckminster fuller. These recordings, in english and norwegian, will go on tour with a geodisk dome workshop in counties all over norway, for the next six years.
I finally found a master silk screen printer, Brian. Today he showed me how to print, and we completed a 25 edition box set for the EP by Lars Lervik. 'Om virkelig var'.
