Pre-Flight

May 21st, 2008 | mobilesignals

I’m outside the pub, soaking in some heat, because I’m off to Oslo tomorrow and it is probably not hot in Oslo. It also occurs to me that I’m going to be too early for strawberry season in Oslo. They sell them in big barrows, and the scent fills the street.

I still haven’t written my presentation for the Norwegian Film Institute. Had no time. God only knows what I’m going to do. The time I’d blocked to think about it got eaten by a minor work crisis. I may just have to wing it for an hour and hope for the best.

They got me a smoking room in the hotel. I foresee a Thursday night spent bent over a notebook, fuelled by cigarettes and coffee. And I won’t reach the hotel until midnight.

Still, after the doomed presentation, I get to look at a new, Lovecraftian MMO game that’s being created in Oslo, which I’m looking forward to immensely.

Time for lunch.

  1. Lovecraftian MMO! I am intrigued, any chance of some more info when you get back? Or are you sworn to secrecy, with red hot kippers under your finger-nails if you break their code of silence?

  2. Would that happen to be The Secret World?

  3. I’m hoping your presentation finds it’s way onto You Tube….

  4. Would a lovecraft MMO involve stumbling across the great unknowable horrors of the outer sphere and then going mad/getting sought out by some terrible force?

    Most of his characters tend to not fare so well…except that fellow in the Dream Quest cycle.

  5. If you’re up for a ridiculous but immaculately built tiki drink during your stay, i know a fantastic bar on the east end of Oslo. Hope you have a great stay!

  6. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!
