The Guinness World Records visit

Molde in Norway, 07.02.2017

 

Right after my record was confirmed, GWR contacted me and asked me if I wanted to do a photoshoot for the new book that was coming out. I accepted, and a small team flew out to Norway to do the shoot. It was a very stressfull and exhausting day, but they were very kind and professional about everything, and I'm glad I did it.

 

They also wanted to take a few photos outside to get some of those Norwegian mountains in the background. They were really lucky with the weather that day, as it had been raining the days before. A bit cold in February though..

The Guinness World Records attempt

Molde in Norway, 13.06.2016

 

In order to set a record, you need to follow lots of rules and regulations. One of the things I had to do, was to get two independent witnesses to count all of the items while I filmed them. I could not be related to/associated with them, and they would not have anything to gain from the attempt. I ended up with a police officer, and a former GAME-store manager.

 

..I wonder if this is the weirdest mission this police officer have had before? He did a good job though.

 

 

The former GAME-store manager was a friend of the Youtuber "The Paxian" from my hometown. So she was also there with him, and filmed a bit from the counting. Click on the picture to watch her vlog (in Norwegian).

 

 

 

The Symphony of the Goddesses

Ericsson Globe, Stockholm in Sweden, 06.04.2015

 

"The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert series is back with a third installment of multimedia symphony to be toured worldwide, titled "Master Quest." This latest edition of the "The Legend of Zelda" symphony will add new music and visuals from the latest games in the series and upcoming The Legend of Zelda games, but will maintain the beloved experience fans have come to expect as it embarks on a world tour. Based on one of the most popular and beloved video game series of all time, the tour features live orchestral performances of theme music from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda franchise that will serve to introduce newcomers to the music and themes of the Zelda games and give longtime fans a chance to celebrate their favorite moments in the franchise.
Audiences can expect to experience awesome new inclusions from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the latest game in the series for Nintendo 3DS, and new music from the recently announced remake of fan-favorite The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. These never-before-performed scores accompanied by game-play imagery will appear for the first time ever in "Master Quest," though fans will still be treated to the show's now-classic repertoire from seasons past.

The name Symphony of the Goddesses refers not only to the concert program but also to the four-movement symphony recounting the classic storylines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The performance also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Concerts will be performed by full orchestra and choir in world-class venues throughout the world.

Guests will enjoy their favorite moments from the carefully and beautifully timed performance with a gorgeous orchestral score approved by Nintendo sound director and The Legend of Zelda franchise composer Koji Kondo. The concert is a festive experience for all walks of fans, some of whom attend "cosplaying" events as their favorite characters."

 

 

It was a magical consert. I especially loved the Majora's Mask part.

Nintendo World Store, New York City in the US, 09.01.2012

 

Nintendo was offering fans the opportunity to become immortalised within a photo mosaic that would be displayed at the Nintendo World store in New York. They were looking for 25,000 fans to appear within the mosaic, and also offered the chance to win a life-size replica of Link’s legendary Master Sword and Hyrulian Shield.

 


These pictures were posted on Nintendo's Official Facebook site for the contest and then later for the reveal.

 


Even though it was open for US residents only, I still sent in a photo just for the sake of trying. ..and I got in it! xD
