Alexander’s concerts in China were cancelled due to politics

Alexander was going to perform in China on 1, 2 and 5 November for the musical “Some Sunny Night” by Thomas Stanghelle, where he portrays Ketil Moe, a respected figure among Norwegian athletes, who gave a personal fight against cystic fibrosis. His parents would participate as well.

Unfortunately, the concerts were suddenly cancelled by the Chinese Department of Culture yesterday, in the context of the general anger of the Chinese government against Norway, after the decision of the Norwegian Nobel Committee to award this year’s Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiabo, a dissident and political prisoner in China. No other Norwegian artists are known to face similar problems in China so far.

Alexander talked to NRK and TV2 about this issue. Links found by Marianne Saietz (who also pays the subscription to let us watch TV2!) and Vigdis Ar. Uploading by Yannis Papadopoulos. Many thanks for the translation to Tessa La!

Happy birthday, “Fans own poems and lyrics” thread!

Calliope, the Muse of Poetry

On 15  July 2009 a new thread was created on Planet Rybak, a newborn then. It was the thread called “Fans own poems and lyrics”, made by Marianne Saietz. During the last year this thread has inspired many Facebookies to express their feelings by creating hundreds of excellent poems! It has also given birth to four SONG BOOKS released by the Facebookies so far, and counting! It has been the earliest sign of the world-famous Facebookies creativity!

On 15 July 2010 we are celebrating its birthday. You are all invited to leave a rhyme, a limerick, a poem, anything 🙂

Sample poem, by Marianne:


And finally, the fans will sleep And no one will the facebook keep The latest topic now must wait The wild ideas can hesitate The cleaning-people sweeps the floor clean up the links and threads and more The lights go out and all is shade And even words stay up too late

I think I should  just quote the person, who made this project came true and who deserved to be on top of this unique holiday! Of course, this is our genius Chief Editor,  Mistress IRENA BAY😉 Continue reading HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to the BOOK!!!!!!!!!
