Not many years ago, the ideas spawning at a festival like Boom, which is held every second year under the scorching sun in Portugal, would be too hippie-esque for the mainstream audience. Not so much anymore, where everything is about sustainaiblity, ecology, leave-no-trace and maker culture. Big commercial festivals like Roskilde Festival look to Boom for inspiration.
I wrote an article about the otherworldly time-distorting scorcher of a festival. It starts out like this:
“Scorpions. I don’t ususally think about those creatures on my way to a festival. But I do on my way to Boom. Scorpions and heat”. You can read the entire article in Danish published on Rejseliv.dk here:Prisbelønnet økofestival i Portugal. ““The grandest hippie dreams of a new and more harmonic life on planet earth didn’t die out with the 60s. They are alive and well on the festival Boom in Portugal“.
Playfulness abound. You could watch this guy for hours:
More playfulness and so much room. How about a kaleidoscopic adventure inside af big fish?
I could have interviewed these guys for hours. Three very different dj’s saying some really interesting stuff about their work, their skills and their very different focus – from three very different corners of the dj culture.

Someone has made an app that will predict exactly how long you will survive
if when your own hood is attacked by zombies. Using google maps. So it’s REAL. It’s pretty crude, graphically, but the idea rocks, of course. I have written an article on Zombie Outbreak Simulator on b.dk – you can read it right here.
Axe in Face! Such a slammer of a game title. Such a a fun game. And a winner! At this year’s Nordic Game, Denmark won Best Nordic Game (with Limbo) and Best Nordic Handheld Game (with Axe in Face). I have written an article on this year’s award show and spoken with the 25-year-old developer of Axe in Face: Nordens bedste spil er dansk.
I wrote an article in the newspaper Berlingske about pixel crushes, digital charm and virtual love after realizing that I completely lost interest in playing Yakuza 4 when the extremely hot and interesting Shun wasn’t the main character anymore (as he was through the first part of the game).
