Almost one year of living among vikings

Hello! No, we have not dissapeared!

We have not been taken over by a jealous country!

We have not sunk into economic crisis! (well, just a little...)

We have moved our mighty Republic to a new land among the legendary vikings in order to spread our beloved culture and sacred customs into new unsuspected acolytes. We call it smooth power. Total cultural and alcoholic dominance.

We have kept silent because we have kept busy. Moving a whole country -no matter how small- across the globe is not an easy matter. Besides, our new hosts are not much bigger than we are. We managed to find a cozy piece of land sandwiched between some other tenants in a classical (everything is "classical" here) building in Frederiksberg, which is an independent enclave within Copenhagen which is what we stand for. Independence in all forms and shapes.

We will keep you posted of our new adventures in this strange wild land of the drunken vikings.

Vi ses!

Gaston Birthday Party 2008!

Hello everyone!

First of all, thanks for showing up to those who did and, hope to see you next time to those who couldn't make it! We had a great time!!

Around 30 people came, I feel really blessed to have such amazing friends! The staff at Polo-Dog Nada was really helpful as usual and they had a great time as well, good move with the music at the end!

Here's a slideshow with some of the pictures taken that night. I am a bit disappointed at how I look on some of them, but alas! there's no excusing myself now! I was having an amazing time.

I am going to miss you all so much... I wish we could have parties like these every month.

Enough talk, enjoy the pics.

Gaston's Birthday Party

Hello everyone,

It seems it's "that" time of the year again... and I'm becoming older and -hopefully- wiser. This time is very special since it marks a big change about to happen in our lives.

We are leaving Japan at the end of March heading to Europe and this would be my last birthday party here. For that reason, I would like to see as many of you as possible that night.

We will be gathering at a bar/pub called Polo-Dog in Nada on Friday February 29th from 7 PM.

This is a map of the location,

I'm looking forward of seeing many of you there!

A nice view on religions...

Hello everyone,

I know we have been off line for quite some time now... the truth is, we have not much to write about these days. We have been very busy with work, studying and trying to remain sane while surviving yet another holidays season -hopefully the last- in Japan.

On the meantime before our New Year's best wishes post, let me show you a video I stumbled upon while reading some news feed the other day.

The guy makes a hilarious point about the nonsense of religions. As a non-religious christian myself (i.e. someone who tries to figure out what the old J said -before being executed as a religious fanatic terrorist- by myself as I live my life as it comes along and not following blindly what other people think I should live my life according to their own interpretations of what J really said), I happen to agree with most of what he says, besides, he makes it sound really funny.

Enough said, on with the video.



Vive la difference!

Toward no crimes have men shown themselves so cold-bloodedly cruel as in punishing differences of belief.
James Russell Lowell

Diversity is not about how we differ.
Diversity is about embracing one another's uniqueness.

True observation begins when one is devoid of set patterns.

If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life's exciting variety, not something to fear.

We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same.

The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.
