On the occasion of my sixty-eighth birthday.
Created from a seven-and-a-half hour hi-res video made available by Channel NRK2, on the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. I felt it would be perfect for “winter blue,” from the album “the seasons [remixed/remastered].” Finally got around to doing the edits. Yes, very happy with it!
Watch full-screen with a good sound system!
From the NRK2 website: Friday November 27th, over 1,2 million Norwegians watched parts of «Bergensbanen» on NRK2. The longest documentary ever? At least the longest we have made, almost 7 1/2 hours, showing every minute of the scenic train ride between Bergen on the Norwegian west coast, crossing the mountains to the capital of Oslo.

Not that political! Just a general update on November 6, 2018.
My last post was an audioboo about this graphic, done by my friend Brad Eigen for an assignment when he was going to nursing school some years ago.
I must say it is an odd document at which to look, inasmuch I am its subject. The piece has evolved over the years. I think this is the third revision.
I met Brad in my last year of drinking. I was managing an AlphaGraphics print/copy shop in Emeryville and he was a customer, working as a graphic designer for Farallon Computing.
