I have seen "Efterklang" live before. First together with "Slaraffenland" and then one time at Roskilde, but this was the first time in a proper solo concert situation and it was by far the best one as well.
Although their music is quite rhythmic I found it great to be seated, cause it somehow allows you to fully concentrate on the music. The supporting act was John Grant and he was indeed grant. I was very disappointed to discover that some of the songs he performed is not yet reliesed.
Every time I go to a live music act I always regret not going to more, because it can be such a great and intense experience and I mostly leave a concert with the feeling of being a little more happy.

Getting an extra hour for sleep
Catching up on some reading
Making coffee at home
Put on the heat and look out through the window on the cold outside
Sitting on the couch under a blanket
Eating wintery food

As part of learning French I am trying to find time to watch at least one French film a week in order to get some new vocabulary and just getting use to listening to the language. I feel like I have never been so dedicated to leaning another language as I am now.
This weekend I watched "Paris Je t'aime" for the first time. It is a bit weird to watch a movie containing many small movies cause the level of engagement varies from scene to scene. There were of cause some I liked better than others but I think my favorite was Gus Van Sant's contribution from Le Marais.
I imagine soon being in a similar situation when I in less than 3 months will be living in Nantes and go to a french university. Maybe without the soul mate part but for sure me being totally oblivious to what is going on around me.
Towpath while overlooking the canal and all the people riding their bikes and taking their dogs for walks. That is if I manage to get out of the house early enough.

Please Smile (A bit of humor)
I don't know exactly why but I always found it fascinating with empty houses, and I always feel the urge to go in and have a look. To see it someone left something interesting behind or feel the sadness of the place.
