Here I sit overlooking the rooftops of Oslo while it’s pouring down from the gray sky. It’s that time of the year where all you want to do is to sit inside and drink red wine while being melancholic. I daydream about Lebanon, though Beirut somehow feels like an oriental dream in the distance. It’s so different from where I am right now. It’s almost surreal. But I guess that’s why I fell in love with Lebanon in the first place, and that’s what kept me there for four years. You’re never alone in Beirut. You’re never bored in Beirut, and there’s always a new surprise waiting for you around every corner. While Norway is slow, stable and boring, Lebanon is fast, unpredictable and interesting. And there is always a new party.One of the things Lebanon is so famous for is their parties, and even if “nothing’s going on” in Lebanon, I think that the summer of 2013 confirms that party myth. We’ve heard stories from 2006 where people were partying as bombs were falling from they sky. It’s not that it sounds nice to party with live isreali fireworks shattering your country. It’s more unbelievable, and I think you need to have lived in Beirut to understand it. Things look way more scary from the outside than it does from the inside, so if “the situation” looks bad on my TV-screen when I’m in Europe, I know that my friends in Beirut are doing allright. Another footnote is that I’ve never seen more bars, pubs and restaurants popping up anywhere in the world than I did this summer in Beirut.
Right now most of my friends in Lebanon are partying it up at Wicker Park music festival in Batroun, and for the first time since I left Lebanon I feel home sick. There is nowhere in the world I would have liked to spend this Sunday more than with my friends at Junior’s house, getting drunk on Almaza while dancing to prime music. Instead I’m sitting next to my heater, covered with a wool blanket while looking through all the party videos we made this summer, and I don’t feel like writing a roundup of stupid politics. So I decided to make a roundup of our party videos from the summer of 2013.
A Guns’n Roses concert might not qualify as a party by most standards, but it’s really what you make out of it at the end of the day. We figured it was a great opportunity to show what kind of rock’n roll stars we are: We hung out with DJ Ashba, Wanton Bishops and Near Surface, AND we got kicked out from back stage.
Learning how to dance to deep house music
One of the things about having a website is that every once in a while people ask you to promote their events. To us that’s perfect as we usually run out of cash in April / May, meaning that we have to live through the summer with no money. So when the party fixers ask us to collaborate and make a video or two in return for free entrence and free bar to their events – we simply cannot afford to say no.
Here’s a video where we learn how to make some cool moves for the summer.
Stereo Night Club
In this video I’ve got a “coolometer” installed, so that you can see how cool I am at this party. And I’m telling you, I’m pretty, pretty cool.
At some point we escaped to Nepal to take a break from the hectic life we live in Beirut. But up there in the Himalayan mountains we came across a massive psychedelic rave, and it turned out that more than 100 lebanese party people had found their way there. So we had to document it.
Trying to party at Überhaus
This was supposed to be the party video of the century, and we prepared for weeks getting the right footage of this epic event coming together. But on the opening night there were too many people at the entrance, so we couldn’t even get in. The second time we tried, we ended up getting just too wasted to make any sense out of anything…
Partying at Überhaus
Finally, on our third attempt, we managed to party at Überhaus. In this video you’ll get to see what we at 2famous.TV are so insanely good at: partying.
We’ve been down with this crowd of psychedelic party people since we came to Lebanon, and we’ve joined them on many of their epic events and parties on the most beautiful locations all over the country, where you can enjoy a beautiful river accompanied with extremely hard core electronic music.
Chill out with Wake Island and Hammed Sinno
There is no better way to start the weekend than listening to Adrian & Layal’s RADIO SHOW every Friday at 6.
Is Iceland the REAL threat to Europe?
We’re obsessed with putting our eyes on islamofacists, islafists, salafists, and, well, you know, just muslims, but is this where the real threat is coming from?

Being down with the kids
When the 2famous.TV crew rolled up in our red Mercedes at this beautiful island in the south of Norway, we pretty much felt like stars. I mean, festivals are usually the place where we can show (and prove to ourselves) that we still got it; that we’re still down with the kids, despite the fact that most of our crew is twice the age of the average populat...

– No work visa required
If you live in a shithole, you should come to Norway and join the shitfest!
There is a loophole in the strict Norwegian job market, and that loophole can be found right between a grizzlys genitals and it’s tale (also known as its butthole).
Thanks to the low population and the large oil reserves Norway may be the richest country in the world, but if you’re not from... [more]
It’s election on Monday, and no one is talking about how much the “Peace Nation” Norway sucks for everyone that’s not in Norway.
I wish I could have talked about something that had something to do with the real world, but I have been living in an isolated bubble for the past week. It’s not my lack of access to the internet that has cut me off, nor is it that I’ve been occupied with setting up the 2famous.TV HQ in Oslo with Knut and Liza. True, I’ve been stressing around decorating my new room so that i... [more]
