Blasts from the Past: Birthday Bash Edition

Buckle your seat belts, some more time travelling coming up. It’s the Birthday Bash Special. Huge jumps will occur. One obvious rule (apart from jungle, of course): Every photo is from December 3rd or from my birthday celebrations the following weekend.

birthday 1998
My birthday bash anno 1998. Notice the Dimensions poster, the center piece of my living room at the time. A massive party weekend at Den Grå Hal, Christiania, april 1996. Rotundum on the Friday, Jungle Fever on the Saturday. The note in my diary about that weekend says “FOR VILDT!” so I was clearly happy about it. But that’s another story.

Gløgg in the cups. And yes, I went all in with the techno posters in that flat. The Legohouse flyer lived in the hallway (but didn’t survive the move).

Time jumping. December 3rd 2005. My first Birthday Bash at Nadsat.

While the awesome suede catsuit diverts your attention, I am barely visible at the bottom left corner of the photo, investigating a time portal that has suddenly appeared in the floor.

Dj Caspar. This set was so good, I made an enthusiastic note of it the day after in my 2005 calendar. The calender has limited space, so very few dj-sets make it in there, even really good ones; I mean, think of the volume of it otherwise. So this set was, no doubt, straight up awesome. Photo courtesy of Nufound; my camera had stopped circulating by then.

Time jump to what I think was my first birthday surprise party ever, year 2000. Birthday cake by Svingsen who managed to make me some marvelous ones quite a few years in a row, always with highly motivating texts on top. Later this evening, we went to something called Plasma at Amager Bio. If it was psytrance I think I would have remembered so it was probably techno.

Massive time jump to December 3rd 2009. After a very intense round of Chriszka’s Birthday Bash at Culture Box. We are still alive, barely. So much dancing, no time for photos, apparently.

December 3rd, 2010. Enter the smartphone and my two year non stop Hipstamatic phase! We are charging the batteries for another Birthday Bash at Culture Box. 20 minutes to go.

Classic Hipstamatic cut. I sort of like it.

And that was that. Time to chill.

This post was originally made on December 3rd, 2014 – another birthday, obviously. Time portal is functioning. Time for some more jungle bubbles, then.
