Tromsa, Norway 7/14/11
It’s pretty cool up here, it’s like if you stuck a New England fishing town into H.P. Lovecraft’s Mountains of Madness. Ominous mountains appearing and vanishing through the thick rainy clouds. Went to a place called Bla Rock Cafe yesterday where I had a Monster Magnet burger, it was a burger with brie cheese and sliced steak on it. The original recipe called for tiny magnets, but they got complaints. Also on the menu are The Radio Birdman (fried radios in bird sauce) and The Beasts of Bourbon (a shot of bourbon served in a fur cup), so we’re in good company. It’s been raining and about fifty degrees for the last week or so and today is no different. Grinderman and Guitar Wolf are playing tonight, which should be cool. We’re missing Mudhoney and The Black Lips who will be playing tomorrow.
