Post Eh. hello.
Thought I should introduce myself.
Currently I live in Stavanger, Norway, but next year I will move to Northfield, MN to study at St. Olaf College.

Just wondering how the scene is in the area...

I've been DJing in three or four different clubs around Norway, and I hope I could continue this next year...

eh.

welcome to Gothling! I have no idea what the scene would be like on campus, but it's a scant hour from there to Minneapolis. What do you spin? Are you studying music?

Nope. Religion and Norwegian...

Offcourse I am. Actually I am just making covers for the complete Seigmen bootleg series (eh. more or less...)

Norway, eh? A lot of good Black Metal comes from those parts. So I suppose you're welcome.

Especially if you plan to study Norwegian? Wouldn't it be easier to do that in Norway? I'm seriously stumped. But by all means, welcome to this forum *and* our lovely state.

Greetings, RiffRaff. Your studying religion, eh? That is very fascinating, is this due to a spiritual conviction, or an academic curiosity?

Welcome, it is difficult to break into the DJ scene here. There are so many people who want to be DJ's it makes for a very competitive market. That said, your playlists do look good. There are a few places that have guest DJ's now and again. And there are always parties.

You have come to the right place though. When you get into town, check and see what nights are around and try to get a guest spot somewhere.

That is one of the better collections of set lists that I've ever seen. Someone who has diverse tastes to make a set interesting, and the skill to make it work is quite a good dj.
On top of that, you show appreciation of old Cabaret Voltaire. I've had the "Arm of the Lord" album for years, and always suggest to people they play "L21st" when they are looking for a more obscure track. You are the only other person I've seen who actually seems to like it.
However, here's a warning to you if you are to be a Norwegian studying over here:
-Lots of people will talk to you about lutefisk. For some odd reason, they think that that is just about all that Norwegians eat. As soon as people hear my name, they typically ask if I "eat lutfisk all the time?" Also, when my friend Jan Aase was over here from Norway, he got asked the same thing. So again, I'm just warning you.

Thank you.
And thank you for warning me ;) (Actually I've never even tasted lutefisk...)

Arm of the Lord is an incredible album!

I've never tasted it either. My grandmother, whose family came over from Norway, has been trying to get me to eat it for years. I was a vegan for the majority of that time, so it wasn't happening. I haven't told her yet that I stopped being a vegan years ago. She does make damn good lefse, though.

"The Crackdown" is also a good C.V. album as well.
