007

About Per Morten Mjolkeraaenone of us since 10:35 AM on 02.10.2015

Born and based in Norway, I'm the only person on the Flixist staff with an ordinary surname.

I've written about movies, music and video games for the past four years, and still can't decide why I like to do it. I love pop-culture and counter-culture equally, in the same way I find intellectual European New-Wave movies and American blockbusters equally fun and rewarding. I'm often told I'm paradox incarnated into a small, socially awkward norwegian dude.
