Diary, week 24

 Once again this blog has been haunted with the lack of entries, and once again we think we have good arguments for it. Therefore we have decided to post some of them in a series in the near future. If you are an artist, you will totally understand and relate to them all.

An artist doing batik shirts is totally relating to my recent struggle.

Number one on the list is the ultimate "struggeling artist reason" of them all. The infamous "The inflammation of muscles and veins in the neck, arms and the back region".

The state of my body went from really bad to "close to daeth because of extreme pain" when I was working on a festival trailer. I tried to pull through the project before contacting help but...

 ...the day after that decision everything kicked in really hard. All tasks became extremely painful to do. Brushing your teeth, chewing gum, whiping your behind, flossing your teeth, drying your back with a towel etc, etc... Basically everything you need to do to function as a human being in 2017.

I ended up having to sit upright when trying to sleep for two, three nights in a row. Well, when I say sleeping, I really mean crying.

I managed to get some treatment from a Swedish naprapath.

It was rough stuff. He had one specific quest for me as his customer. Pain !.

When the treatment was finished, he had one advice for me. I decided to follow his instruction.
8 weeks after I was ready to finish the trailer. It became a race against the clock...and the pain again. This time I managed to finish before the "close to death" pain kicked in. Finally some luck for me as well. New "very good reasons for the lack of blog entries" will follow soon.

Diary, week 3

While the rest of Norway started 2017 with numerous bottles of...

...I  started the new year with numerous cartons of...

So the new years eve for me was not about sending up fireworks and drinking alcohol. I had catched the flu. I don`t know about the rest of the world, but if you catch that virus up here, it is serious business. It is basically a buzzkill in every occasion.  It was a real buzzkill when I was listening to this year`s new year`s speech by the king.

I took every sentences and words he spoke negatively. He did not impress me at all. I blame the virus for it.

Some people might think I was too harsh on his highness, but if you ask me, I think I made some good points from time to time as well.

In fact, I think I actually have something to learn the king of Norway. If only he would read this blog. He might learn something useful for once.

After watching the king`s speech. I finished off the celebration with watching the fireworks. I was not impressed. It is no fun starting a new year with the flu.

Happy new year !.

Work diary, week 49

It has been a long absence of new entries to this blog the last weeks. There is one good explanation to this. Not much exciting has happened at work. I can reassure all readers of this blog that you havent missed anything at all.

The one thing I can think of is when we each were given a chocolate bar for helping the marketing department to prepare for a trade fair. It was a lovely gesture from them, but when we later checked the expiration date because it tasted a bit strange + we reacted to the extreme softness to a biscuits chocolate, we found out it was 6 months off.

We`re not sure how many people read this blog. We know there`s about 7,5 billion people on this planet. The number of readers of this blog is not even close to that number, That is not even a wild guess from us. You may ask yourself, " How the hell does he know that ?". Well, here is my answere. If that was the number, we would have been all over the news. I`m talking about BBC, CNN, Fox news, The Daily Show, 60 minutes, Al Jazeera etc, etc..., The fact that we are not even mentioned in the small, local newspaper is a very strong indication that noone really cares about the lack of blogentries lately.

If  a local news agency by chance would report about our blog entry drought, the scenario would most likely be like this. They finally tracking down that one person who sometimes, by accident, bump into our blog when searching for something else, and then they ask him "Has the lack of new entires to the Tanjetsfilms blog effected your daily life ?". The answere given can be seen in the illustration above.

Tanjetsfilms will make the trailer for the 4th edition of the international one-minute film festival Mister Vorky. So far we haven`t got a clue what to do, but hopefully things will  soon fall into places.

Work diary Friday, week 43

New tactic today. I decided to force myself to be a positive person. I am not optimistic about pulling it off.

The positivity followed me to the bathroom. I decided to dedicate this day of my life to focus on making things better for someone else.

But when I arrived work, all the positivity disappeared. The mouse had been removed. What a letdown. I decided to focus on myself again.

Once again I decided to test the eating something to come up with something to write about. I found a giant chocolate bar with illustrations of blueberries on it. Maby it contains antioxidants that we can find plenty of in blueberries. Antioxidants terminate or slow down the oxidation of chemical substances in the body. Maby they also terminate drought of ideas.

When I went to bed that night I had a feeling I had speeded up the oxidation of the chemical substances. Chain reactions were happening all over my body, from the top to my toes. My dramatic week ended with my body maby on its way to dissolving.

Work diary Thursday, week 43

The udentified insect was back again thanks to brushing my nostrils instead of my teeth. I wonder what insect family it belongs to. My guess is the diptera order, but it can also be the moth order.

The dead mouse from last week is still lying on the same spot. It has started to smell really bad. 

I decided to write something about the stinky, dead mouse. but at the moment it seems like I will not be able to produce anything in a very long time. If you are not able to write about a mouse that has been ran over by a forklift truck, then you can talk about a good old fashioned writer`s block.

Drastic changes were needed. I decided to go from sugar related products to salt related ones. In my search for sometrhing to crush the writer`s block I found a pringle with extra strong chilli flavour.

The chilli didn`t clear my mind, but it only resulted in a more painful visit to the toilet. Enough said. I will not illustrate it for this blog.

It was very painful to brush the teeth afterwards as well.  Maby I should go back to sugar related products again.

Work diary Wednesday, week 43

Another workday finished without any highlights at all. That meant nothing at all to enter in this blog. All this made me so stressed that it affected my communication with others in the traffic home from work.
I could always lie, but I have my principles and my morals are of a very high standard. I tried some relaxing methodes, but the result was being even more tense.

I bought a brioche. I have heard eating brioche gives you great ideas.

It was not true. I don`t know who said those words, but I concluded it was most likely the supplier of the product. It only gave me a full stomach and a dizzy head.

The dizziness had consequences for my dental health, but the nostrils have never been so clean in my whole life. Maby I should launch a nostrilpaste and become superrich. If any of the readers steal this idea, I demand fifty percent of the income.

The nostrilpaste will of course come with a sleeping pill. The extremely fresh nostrils made me wide awake. I decided to write my very first poem, but I found out that this was a struggle for me as well.
