Aleksander Aurdal grew up crashing in just about every possible way before he settled with the sport of free skiing.

Aleksander now uses his previous crash experience to avoid getting hurt in this fast progressing sport.

Muse‘s fusion of progressive rock, glam, electronica, and Radiohead-influenced experimentation is crafted by guitarist/vocalist Matthew Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dominic Howard. Bored by the sleepy life provided by their hometown of Teignmouth, Devon, the three British friends began playing music together. They started the first incarnation of their band while only 13 years old, changing the name of the group from Gothic Plague to Fixed Penalty to Rocket Baby Dolls as time passed.

By 1997, the bandmates settled on the name Muse and released their self-titled debut EP on Dangerous Records, followed by the Muscle Museum EP in 1998. The group’s emotive, passionate sound and live presence drew critical acclaim and industry buzz, and Muse signed a deal with Maverick Records after a trip to New York’s CMJ festival.

The Girls of Ennismore

purchase

The Girls of Ennismore” depicts the intertwining lives of a family of Anglo-Irish gentry and their servants at a time in Irish History where the aristocracy are under threat both from growing economic hardship and incipient nationalist rebellion. It juxtaposes the gentry’s sense of entitlement against the servants’ not so guarded resentment of their employers whose ownership of Irish lands was achieved by conquest. The contrast of the natural wit, passion and mercurial charm of the native Irish with the formal, restrained behaviors of the gentry, makes for a natural conflict that offers both drama and humor.

Set at a Manor House called “Ennismore” in the West of Ireland between 1900 and 1918, the story focuses on the unlikely friendship of two girls from different backgrounds, and how their relationship eventually triumphs over the barriers of class distinction and prejudice.

Rosie and Victoria

It is 1900. Two young girls meet by chance by a lake. The younger has lost her new toy boat in the water. The elder finds her silly but retrieves it from the water for her. One is rich, one is poor. But they are children and these distinctions don’t mean a lot. They are Rosie, the elder at 8, and Victoria, the younger at 7. Rosie only can’t believe anyone she meets can’t swim and is afraid of the water. A silly event becomes the foundation for a meaningful friendship.

Victoria, the younger of the two, is fair, wealthy, titled, privileged and shy. She is innocent and protected from the world.  Rosie the elder is forward, fearless, poor. She is spirited, high-tempered and proud. And, though she doesn’t yet know it at this encounter,she is a servant girl for Victoria’s family. It is an attraction of opposites that begins as soon as they meet.
