I am inspired by this Bossa Nova song from the wonderful people at The Royal Library of Denmark – The Faculty Library of Social Sciences
In fact I am inspired by most things they do… Their LEGO stop motion movies and music would still be cool even if did not have the underlying message to the students that the library is there to make them information ninjas.
Listen – enjoy the Bossa and share it with your favorite library lovers…
And if you are so inclined – and can stand a little library industrial – re-listen my avantgarde song – Go to the library 🙂

Launching myself as an avantgarde musician – or … Well I was testing out an app tonight and I made this…
I heard the way to launch music the cool way is to surprise everyone by making it available online when people least expect it –
So here it is. Totally free. If you like it smile to someone who needs it – and go to the library.
I had “Leave comfort zone” on my to do – Consider it done by posting this.
The combination of fine libraries and LEGO bricks is not new and is often seen in the library blogosphere…
It is now wonder. Libraries are magnificent and LEGO is fun – What is not like?

The movie is made by awesome librarian, upcoming stop motion director and good friend Christian Lauersen . Enjoy!
