This blog has been inactive for some time, so what you read below is no longer true of Barry Kavanagh’s life, although he does still live in Norway. The venue Sound of Mu is mentioned, for example, and it no longer exists.
My name is Barry Kavanagh, an Irish man living in Norway. My line of business is writing, music and art. I run an art gallery/venue in Oslo called Sound of Mu.
I have lived the following:

This blog, ‘North’, is about the idea of being in Norway. It informs you about Norwegian culture, often describing art and music about which there is no information in English on the internet. The other main purpose is to update you on my misadventures.
Each entry is accompanied by a picture. Pictures in 2005-6 were taken on a phone but as of 2007 they have been taken on a digital camera.
Norwegian words, and other odd words that crop up are explained in the glossary.
What they said about ‘North’:
‘I am not impressed by your quality of thinking’ – University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute.
‘Heya! I Am the Hero of your nightmare ! if you want, we may meet at my bloody Darkness underworld !’ – a self-professed vampire.
‘Am 31 years a Ghanaian based in Italy looking for Norway woman for a serious relationship that i hope to get to marriage’ – someone who should probably remain anonymous.
