A Birthday-present for Kjell Arild. Dec.1st. 2011 Part 1

>

Dear reader! December 1st. is the birthday of Kjell Arild Tiltnes! He is a good friend and manager of Alexander Rybak, but also the person, responsible for the opening of Alexanders facebook-fanpage in may 2009 and for being the contact-person between Alexander and his fans, a job that has given him many friends among the fans. This year, we decided to give him a very special birthday-present: A book with memories from a discussion-thread, we opened on the fanpage: A fanclub-thread about Kjell Arild.

Being pretty sure, he never found time to read it, while it existed on the fanpage, we found it a nice idea for a birthday-present. It was necessary to edit and I hope, you will forgive, dear reader, that the editing brought the texts down from 140 word-pages to 35, which makes it more likely, that Kjell Arild will find time to read it:-)

I have tried to edit in a way, that shows the variety of moods, that we shared in the discussion-thread. There was  joy and happiness, but also frustration, worries and sometimes,  even anger. I have tried, to show a glimpse of all of it, as it was – during our days and nights on Alexanders fanpage. The following text is a true copy of the book, Kjell Arild received for his birthday, except that I added some more pictures here:-)

BREAKING NEWS: KJELL ANSWERED AN E-MAIL FROM ME..10 MINUTES AFTER, I SENT IT..

Hello.
We are approaching 61,000.
So we would wish us that Alexander’s official Facebook page could also be updated and repaired a little.

Wishes:

Updating the list of events on the front and in the box, events .. (There are 8 events. They are all from June 2009. It seems a little ridicolous)  

Links: There should be links to Myspace and the official website of Alex.

Memories from the discussion-thread “Fans own poems and lyrics” Part 2

Calliope – Muse of epic poetry

———————–

INTRO

In ancient Greece, The  MOUSAI (Muses) were the goddesses of music, song and dance, and the source of inspiration to poets. They were also goddesses of knowledge, who remembered all things that had come to pass. Later the Mousai were assigned specific artistic spheres:

Kalliope, epic poetry; Kleio, history; Ourania, astronomy; Thaleia, comedy; Melpomene, tragedy; Polyhymnia, religious hymns; Erato, erotic poetry; Euterpe, lyric poetry; and Terpsikhore, choral song and dance. ( Source:http://www.theoi.com/Ouranios/Mousai.html )

…………………………….

From may 27th 2009, when Alexander Rybaks fanpage opened, it soon became clear, that his page was a magnet for talents. Alexanders fans had fallen in love and  they showed their emotions with fantasy, humor and amazing creative skills. The muses felt it from far away and they were attracted – not only to this talented and beautiful young artist, but also to his fans! So, art started to flourish and the fans opened discussion-threads, to save and keep their art-work.

The happy days ended november 1st 2011, when The mighty Facebook-emperor, Lord Zucker, decided to delete all the discussion-pages in his kingdom. He showed the small courtesy of warning his residents, so they had time to save their treasured art.

Here is the 2nd part of what was saved of the discussion-thread

Fans own poems and lyrics.

Here is the 1st. part of what was saved of the discussion-thread

Fans own poems and lyrics.

All poems and lyrics are saved, but a lot of comments and discussions are deleted, to decrease the volume. Some comments has been spared, to give an impression of the atmosphere.

The discussion-thread was opened July 15th 2009, but some of the first added poems were written earlier and posted around the fanpage.
