OMB

I relish discovering new cultural gems, be it through music, films, or art. This is why I consider myself an internet explorer (not to be confused with Internet Explorer). Often, I can lose track of time as I delve into the vast expanse of the Internet, frequently finding myself in a rabbit hole that leads me somewhere unexpected and unintended.

Sometimes I catch myself asking, "How did I get here?", but it's rare for me to remember the exact journey due to the numerous layers between my initial search and the various paths and chambers I traverse along the way. In this instance, however, I can recall my starting point. I was searching for information about a band called Nospūn, which I discovered just yesterday. As an aside, they too are an intriguing band to explore. While researching Nospūn, I stumbled upon the website The Progressive Subway, and it is there that I discovered OMB.

West Coast again

Last week, I took a delightful trip with my girls to the West Coast of Jutland. We booked a cozy apartment in Nørre Nebel for a few days and enjoyed the tranquil surroundings.

The coast is stunningly beautiful, and each visit feels like a new adventure. There's something incredibly special about walking on a vast sandy beach with dunes, feeling the sand beneath your feet. We explored Henne Strand Beach and Blåvands Huk, both of which were absolutely marvelous. It truly doesn’t get much better than this.

Sloppy Joe

Last night, I suddenly got hungry,
in a way that rarely happens to me
It was ten o'clock while the northern night
was well underway
my daughters and their guest were sitting
on the terrace and chatting
I lit the stove and took the meat sauce
out of the fridge
I put four tablespoons of sauce
on the hot pan and cracked an egg
I made the best Sloppy Joe of my life
and ate it with delight
In a beautiful purple night woven from satin

Tri godine

Danas je tačno tri godine otkako mama nije sa nama. Prošlo je hiljadu i devedeset i pet dana otkako je otišla, i još uvijek je prisutna ogromna praznina u duši.
Nedostaje, nedostaje mnogo…

Nögen

Well, it's that time of the year when my wife and I meet up with her colleague and her husband for dinner. We've dined at MeMu (a now-closed Michelin-starred restaurant) and Vedelsborg (also closed) in the past. This year, we opted for Restaurant Nögen, located at the same spot as MeMu.

Concert: The Music of Hans Zimmer and Others

Amra and I went to a concert in Kolding last Friday. It was the concert where an orchestra played many Hans Zimmer soundtracks from movies like Top Gun, Dune, The Lion King, Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator, Dark Knight, Inception, Interstellar and others.

It was fun listening to many fabulous tracks from one of my favorite film composers, but the orchestra also played a few compositions of Ennio Moricone (The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly).

My favorite Hans Zimmer soundtracks are Gladiator and Interstellar. Hvala, Amra!

Rječnik sumnji

Krajem marta ove godine i početkom aprila sam bio u Bosni, jer za vrijeme Uskrsa imam kraći odmor. Te dane sam iskoristio da sa ocem odemo do našeg rodnog grada, Bosanskog Šamca. Jedan dan smo otišli u Brčko, a kadgod svratim u "glavni" grad Posavine, navratim i u knjižaru Knjigoljubac. U knjižari sam sreo zaposlenika, pa smo tako upali u priču. Ispostavilo se da se radi o pjesniku Almiru Zalihiću, te da je taj dan pomagao u trgovini svome sinu, koji je zapravo vlasnik knižare. I tako su dva pjesnika pričali o svemu u tih petnaestak minuta.

Bosnia in Easter

I drove 1,750 kilometers from Denmark to Bosnia with my dad. It went really smoothly, without any issues on the road. The trip to Bosnia took only 18 hours. We visited our hometown Bosanski Šamac. We stayed there for about eight-nine days, and then we drove back to Denmark again. We were together with my uncle, who still lives in the town, and we also visited Gradačac and Brčko. We had a great weather in Šamac, it was between 25 and 28 degrees.
