Longyearbyen man killed by large avalanche in popular snowmobiling area, new shows give Svalbard lots of exposure on the small screen and reactions from folks to Store Norske’s bailout loan request range from favorable to conspiracy theories.
(Yeah, we skipped the Jan. 20 issue. Getting the new website up took a bunch of time, so we’re publishing this week’s issue a day early with breaking news about the avalanche instead of last week’s even more absurdly past deadline than usual.)
About Post Author
I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
