I am really proud of being the artist behind the cover photo on the new Strange Weather album, Big Sleep.

Electronica/Hip Hop musician, Jesper Christiansen and I go way back – since we were about six years old I think – Smiley !!!

– this does make it quite special for me. Great to see “Broken window” on the cover!

The album is due in late january / early february – but in the meantime you can listen to the beautiful track “Found“.

Danish actor Pilou Asbæk shot on Mallorca, July 2013.

– on a dry and dusty mountain side in Andratx – Pilou has his favorite spot on the island.

While he grew up he spent every summer here since he was 9 – bathing from a spring on the mountain side

– and with friends – digging after a gold treasure hidden in the cliffs.

Pilou Asbæk is perhaps the biggest name in his generation of actors in Denmark and is now playing Simon Spies in

the upcoming movie Spies & Glistrup

Sådan føles det at være hjemløs!

Thomas Mogensen, 40 år, kontanthjælpsmodtager.

Thomas har arvet et klædeskab af sin afdøde kammerat, men som han siger,
“det er sådan et Frederiksberg-klædeskab der er tre meter højt, men her i Brønshøj er der kun to en halv meter til loftet,
så det står skilt ad nede i kælderen. Jeg kan ikke få det til at passe og derfor har jeg mit tøj i bunker i soveværelset.
Det ville være dejligt med et skab der passede,” siger han.
