I’d never before heard the idiom used by my grandfather today:

Det går (den vej) som hønsene skraber

with an literal English translation along the lines of “It is going (the way) as the hens are scratching”. He used it when losing in a game of cards, looked at us, and added “… backwards”.

I was recently playing with the film recording abilities of the pocket camera, and noticed that it also had a slow-motion feature. Here is some of the outcome.

On our journey to at least once have experience some of the grand old bands, we caught The Offspring back in September and were supposed to have seen The Buzzcocks earlier this year. The Offspring was a bit of a miss and The Buzzcocks were cancelled as the venue burned down the day before.

Next on the list were Peter Hook & The Light, giving a Joy Division tribute concert last night at Train in Århus. Peter Hook was the only ex-member but otherwise they stayed true to the music.

Peter Hook behaved slightly strange, apparently taking some pleasure in the “here are my genitals, please kick them”-stance (as illustrated in the “Sense & Senility” episode of Blackadder, link) but only to a funny degree. At any rate we got to see the big giraffe. I really enjoyed the concert, even the guys trying to pick a fight up front — I guess it just helped to bring it a tiny bit closer to what it must have been like.

Added on 22 May 2012: I’ve just discovered this (Danish) Gaffa interview with Peter Hook (along with their review of the Copenhagen gig). Besides the somewhat amusing anger he apparently feels towards the other two original members of New Order, I also noted this quote:

Da du besluttede dig for at drage ud med Joy Division-sange, hvorfor valgte du så at spille de to album hver for sig og i deres fulde længde?

– Personligt synes jeg, det er den eneste kunstneriske måde at gøre det på. Det lyder måske utrolig dumt, men jeg synes, lp’erne i deres helhed giver en stemning eller en følelse. Hvis du begynder at blande numrene, så synes jeg, du er et coverband.

Det virker måske også lidt gammeldags i dag, hvor det handler mere om singler end albums?

– Nu laver jeg jo heldigvis ikke musik til nutiden. Jeg kommer fra en tid, hvor hvis Ian Dury udsendte en lp, så satte man sig ned og hørte den fra start til slut … og lod sig opsluge af stemningen fra hele albummet. Det er det, jeg synes er så ærgerligt ved internettet og måden, unge mennesker forbruger musik. … Man kan ikke give sig hen til musik på tre-fire minutter, det kræver altså mere!
