What is your favorite city

I used to hate Oslo, when I first came her. Now I love it, it feels like an anchor in my life. It’s truly a pretty ugly city if you just scratch its surface. But with a little inside help, you will find countless efforts are being made all over town to make sure we all are entertained, fed, provoked, intrigued and happy. Fifteen minutes on the subway and you can be all alone in the woods. It is a very small city. But as far as norwegians go, it’s the biggest we’ve got!

favorite band hailing from the city?

Thom Hell, Rockettothesky, In the Country, Susanna, Hanne Hukkelberg

favorite building?

Right now: the new Opera. There are many funny ugly ones as well.

favorite club?

2nd floor of Internasjonalen and Cafe Mono

best day of the week in the city?

Sundays. Hang around in the sun, visit an exhibition, eat cheap thai food and get tipsy in Cafe Mono’s backyard without too big a crowd.

what should one eat when in the city?

French at Kampen Bistro. Thai at Plah, or cheaper at Rice Bowl. Italian at Brunello. Scandinavian at Olympen. Actually, just stop by Internasjonalen at Youngstorget and pick up the alternative Oslo guide called «Oslo – A poor mans connoisseur guide to happy living in one of the most expensive cities in the world». You will find clubs, cafes, shops and restaurants worth checking out.

where was your first flat?

A really small and shitty one, at Bislett. Have moved eleven times in seven years!

which is the best job one can have in the city?

The same best job as anywhere else in the world: music.

where do you kiss the last time (or where would you like to)?

On the roof of the new Opera.

best movie that takes place in the city?

«Reprise» by Joakim Trier. Excellent!

which person from the city you like the most?

So many, can’t name just one!

favorite restaurant?

Kampen Bistro, on Bogota 21

favorite place to shag?

My bedroom (yes, I’m boring).

which song fits the city the best?

So many. I find the sound of a band called «In The Country» very fitting. Melodic, strange, a bit chaotic and best when you become an insider.

favorite sound in the city?

The seagulls around the islands when it’s summer and you take boat trips on the fjord, Oslofjorden.

favorite street?

Not in any way our main Street Karl Johan, that has become flooded by ugly and charmless chains of clothing stores and eating machines. I would not recommend it to anyone.

favorite street corner?

My own – in the old city of Oslo.
