A-HA singing: foot of the mountain


I acted out the teenager in my today. Ellen sent me a mail in the middle of the day and asked if I wanted to join her downtown after work. A-HA is out with a new record today and they had a two-hour signing at Platekompaniet (record store) at Oslo City today.

I was in doubt of going, because I was so so tired. I have been that all day. But I ended up going. I reconed it couldn’t get any worse.

So we met at the third floor around 17.30. I was already in line and Ellen came right after I had gotten there. It was almost two weeks since we last saw each other, so there was a bit of catching up to do.

The queue got longer and longer behind us. I guess there were something like 30 people in front of us, not more.

I felt really dorky standing there in line waiting to get new CD signed. I seldon do things like this, but thought ‘what the heck, lets do it’. A-HA is big. They are one of the few Norwegian musicians that have┬ámade it in┬áthe USA and hit the billboard-list. Their smash-hit ‘Take On Me’ was HUGE!

As you can see I took a few pictures. It was close to impossible to get any good pictures. I didn’t become any easier since I only had my 50 mm lense with me and that has no zoom. With the other lense (18-125 mm) it would’ve been easier. Oh well, it doesn’t really matter. I got a few half decent shots. It’s enough to post on this blog.

I didn’t really say much when it was my turn to get my sleeve signed. I just said thank you to each of one of them (Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy) and smiled.

After we both got our CD’s singed, we hung around for a short while. I wanted to get a picture of Paul Waaktar-Savoy, since I only had the two others. I gave up to get a decent shot and we left after a short while.

I haven’t had the chance to listen to the CD yet. I’ve been stuck in front of the TV all evening watching one of my fave shows, Top Model. And I’ve been cleaning a bit and chatting with Chantie.
