Scandinavia Is Rainy and Full of Design Objects

Hello! This post will contain pictures of Oslo, Gothenburg, the Helsinki airport, and probably one to two stray other cities and countries. I wasn’t there, and so I have a hard time keeping track. Please forgive my extreme ignorance in advance. The band is still as adorable as ever, and does it really matter where they are? They are in your hearts, always.

Claudia reports that everything is mustard-colored in Scandinavia.

I’m just saying, I better get a present for updating the blog from home. From a place that starts with an ‘M,’ ends with an ‘o,’ and is pictured above. Hint.

Eve seems to be digging John’s vibe, as they say.

This is actually a still from the follow-up to Strange Powers, Fun at Airports with the Magnetic Fields. It’s a short film.

Photo care of Stephin, obviously. Subject line: soft serve.

Sam is soooo non conveyable.

Oslo, you scary.

The romance continues.

Are you worried about what poor vegan Stephin had to eat?

Oh, he had a vegan pretend hot dog with mustard so hot it made him cry.

David, train station.

Hootie! You’re selling books now!

The Good Reverend Merritt

Oh hi, these are my cats. They say hello.

Stephin seems to have stumbled upon a treasure trove of P.G. Wodehouse.

Pantone mugs also make nice presents.

Eve and some tall Norwegians.

1. I speak Norwegian, because that says Store Kiosk. 2. I want to win 35 million in the Viking lotto!

Stone cold chillin’.

Where are they next? Who can keep track? Germany? The Netherlands? Stay tuned to find out!

  1. I wasn’t aware that Stephin was a vegan; that’s very cool, it makes me like him more than I already do. One note, though, and I hope it’s not too annoying: are you sure Stephin’s photos weren’t intended to be titled “Black Metal” shots? Norway is known for being the home of an extremely tempestuous, and ultimately tragic Black Metal scene in the early 90s, while Death Metal has traditionally been more of an American thing. The lo-fi, grainy quality of those photos seems to be in line with the Norwegian Black metal aesthetic as well.

    Anyway, I’ve enjoyed reading this blog and meeting you at the Berklee Performing Arts Center in Boston back in April. Thanks for the free pin. I look forward to future Magnetic Fields tours.
