this saturday the friendly and good looking guys from Wiki Graz and Freedom Skateshop Graz joined forces to host a Miniramp contest. this led to great skating and good times. between judging and looking great i also managed to get a few shots. enjoy.

after a lazy sunday, theres nothing better to start off the week than being tired because you went to a concert. luckily, this time it was only 2 bands and 45 minutes delay, so yeah, theres that. first off were “A Frame of a Life” with an acoustic set. didnt get to catch a picture, sorry you two. they used a guitar as a drum sometimes, which for me is the equivalent of people dancing to Helene Fischer: its highly confusing. but the show was nice, good voices, maybe a little too slow for me but hey, i am not exactly a music critic anyway.
next up were some guys that i have hoped to see live for some time now: Arliss Nancy! all those fancy beards, tattoos and beanies gave me high expectations, looking good is crucial for sounding good. i think. the show was great, they smoked cigarettes, drank beer, i shot some photos, they suck, (i mean i suck, these guys rule). if you get the chance, go see them live and buy some of their stuff.
thanks to everyone organizing this, it was a great evening. now enough with the mindless rambling, photo-time.
so, as predicted by me, this entry is about a wedding. in Oulu. the far north. of finland. *insertthenorthshallrisepunhere*
naturally, we expected snow, igloos, reindeers, eskimos, northern lights, santa clause and lonely drunk eremites, or in short: finnish summer.
only .. like.. 4 of those cliches were actually proven wrong.
first off, the wedding was a blast, the bride (and the groom) were beautiful, happy and looked like 100 bucks. here, see for yourself.
we recently had the amazing opportunity to attend a wedding in Oulu, Finland. in order to get there, we stopped by Helsinki first. here area few impressions, which are mindblowing, to say the least.
at first, look at this. i mean, this picture has it all, right? right.
every now and then it happens that incredibly good bands get sucked into the hole known as “Music-House Graz“. and when that happens, its best to show up there.
the latest victims were the superheroes of The Fleshtones (they have their own wikipedia entry, by the way.)
if you knew them before, you knew what was coming up. if you didnt, you fell in love with them. this is how rocknroll stars should grow old – with power, passion and sheer neverending love for music.
the supporting band, Lory Lee and the Flashback Boys, were amazing as well, but i failed to take pictures. yep, i am that good.
anyway, no more boring words, heres the pictures. the show was incredible, if you have the chance to see them, SEE THEM.
there was this skatecontest this weekend, right? i shot a few pictures. not too many since i was judging there too. and let me tell you, its hard to be back in a world where the ranking, maybe even the life, of people isn´t influenced by me. now i know how George W. Bush must feel.
Joel, pre-contest-judges-session. you can pretty much feel the weight of the world on his shoulders.
