...was the name of a punk rock band when I grew up in Gävle, Sweden in the 1970s...

coq au vin II

Ok, so I promised you a clip from the first stage of preparing a rooster for Coq au Vin... This is when the rooster gets it - first in the head and then in the throat. The procedure might seem a bit grotesque to some of you, but I would say it´s way more "humane" than what goes on in most moder slaughterhouses. The actual killing was performed by a professional. As you can see, the film clip is just over a minute long, so the rooster died in less than a minute. The resulting food: Coq au Vin (rooster in wine) was fantastic and the meat was really good, quite differet from chicken, the taste was more like dark meat actually. A great Thanks! goes out to our hosts Geir and Søssa, and to Cleo the woman with the steady hand that performed the actual deed. Thank you! It was a truly great saturday that ended in a real feast!

Neither the puppy nor the rooster have the slightest idéa what´s going to happen next...

Just as a precaution: This video clip may be a bit much for the weak at heart, so if you´re one of them: Don´t watch it!

The puppy was very pleased with getting the roosters head as a snack afterwards

And I got the feet for my voodoo rituals...

The resulting dish: Coq au Vin, (the picture does not do it justice at all) it was totally delicious!

street art, Olso

sometimes I really like street art, this is a good one that I found in Oslo, great use of the crack in the wall (click for bigger)

a punk rocker I met last summer

who I am

skeleton in the closet

since the roof in my studio is leaking like i siv and mould is crawling down one of the walls, I actually have a skeleton in my closet right now, together with a lot of my other stuff...

Welcome to Cycle Gladiator

I have been blogging for a couple of years already at Gubblogg, but that system got too heavy to work with, so I decided to move on. If you are interrested you can head over there and check out all the older post. Cycle Gladiator will be a good mix of skeletons from my closet (actually anything I´m interrested in, but my dreams, they have a blog of their own: nattduksbord / nightstand ). Hope you will like it!

I do not watermark my scans because I think it´s ugly and the pictures aren´t really mine to start with, I just scan them from old mags and publish them. So, feel free to steal and reblog my scans, but please do not put your own watermarks on them, and please remember to tell them where you found them! Thanks!
