waking up to sleep

the hang over from hell is starting to let go of me. i can finally go to sleep. as always the surf is crap in this country and i will just do some sight seeing tomorrow. some bank holiday, huh..

gotta get some,


it feels like the past summer has just struck me with a hangover. sure it's been great and stuff and i would not wanna change it for the world, however, now i just feel bored. the zillion dollar question is hovering over me, like damokles' sword, and i do not know the answer.

had a good night yesterday att the gappy tooth. lots of laugh and stuff. the denture was read and things, so no complaints. now i need to get up and get going on the weekend...

Swiss Contrete

so we think we have put our first night on. so we think you had a real good time. well not like this (before)!

stornoway kicked ass! sailplanes were alright. foxes!!! wanted all of us to get into hunting! we took about 50 people into the port mahon's upstairs livingroom. we are talking full, or close to full anyway. the swiss concrete staff are super-stoked!

i never knew it could be so much fun to be a part of something, but it is! this is more fun than necking the girl next to you. well, maybe not, but close!

unfortunately the working week starts now and later on today i ship out to the netherlands for a few days. could be fun, but then again, so could a ball at the castle be.

see you around.

The executive super important editor

That's right, that's me, I am the big cheese!

Oh well it's only for this month, but it has been cool fun, and a bit of work. I have written an editorial and done a cover! I put one of my nephews on it as a young gum. he he! I would like to thank mum, dad, russ, rich, rob, matt, miri, kris and above all my editing role model anita (you might remember her from my first written piece "why do american punk rockers go out with the new wave hooker girls").

Gotta sleep

Dreamtime is over

So, apparently, or so I am told, you dream less when there is no full moon. I want to dream more, cause at the moment it's a bit better than reality. I wont get into the details, but let's just say that I am still in the same old cross road, and I am running out of flowers.

Climbing this weekend was good fun though and I solved a problem after a few attempts. Good fun. Tonight me and the Brainiac played some squash, but he was a bit tired. Average fun. Today I was so tired of the office that I did not feel like working. Anti fun.

Hate someting, Change something

I am in the zone again. I am dreaming more and more vividly, which is great. Sometimes I get the feeling that life would be better if I lived the dream. Then again reality is not all bad.

Today some climbing in reality

Back in the fro!

Worklife routine is trying to seak up on me, but I just wanna be free. So far it has been good to be back. Nice and relaxed!

Last monday I went out to Head of the River with Grace, which was nice. The food on the other hand was terrible since my stirfried noodles were swimming in soy sauce. A little goes a long way..

Yesterday we all met up at Richard's new place out in the Insect Lays. It was really nice and we did sort out the final details of our first promotion night next week. I also sent an email to Simon about going to Helsinki in September to watch some great bands there...

Today I have spoken to the real estate agent and I will be moving to a bigger flat in the same block in about a month and a half. Go me. Finally I will get a livable flat. I so should have done this earlier! Also had the bestest dream this morning and woke up with such a nice warm mellow feeling!

Gotta go go!

We rocked up at the harbour in Gothenburg and the sun was baking. First up was C Arme, and they did a resonable gig in the sunshine. Sort of emopunk and at their best they reminded me of Sounds Like Violence, which is the pride of Scania. Then we had to take a stop in the beer tent. Drained tastless lager poured in plastic glasses, fantastic! Fortunately we barely have time to drink it and interact with a terrorist as well as a big screen producer, before Hellacopters take us out of our misery.

Hopeless case of a kid in denial
Long gone loosers
No song unheard
Grace of God
Everything is on TV
Gotta get some action

..and probably some more high quality garage rock is what they dish up for us and working my way towards the pit, I eat it all up and lick the plate. This is a band that keeps rock and roll real. I have supported them for years now and even though their albums are going the wrong way, live is where they're always at!

Backyard Babies changed my life early 1998 with their concert at the Old Jazzhouse in Gothenburg, when they where releasing their Total 13. However, nowadays, their albums suck, their performance suck and it seems like they have been nutered cause the energy is not there anymore. Nicke used to dominate the crowd with his kick ass attitude. And what's up with the "Clap your hands Gothenburg", you wanna lead Allsång på Skansen? Anys, the songs Subcultural hero and Made me Madman almost bring me back to that special place you once showed me. Thanks for the memories.

Millencolin on the other hand is exploding on stage. Energylevels up and just rip through their set. Not having brought Kingwood is a drawback, and at the merch stand they only sell t-shirs and girlies. But they go off! The medley, in the extra, is a nice one, where a lot of the old stuff at least gets aired.

All in all it was well worth the trip. Funny moment 1 was when a 14 year girl grabbed hold of me a shouted "Strömstad" during the Hellacopters gig. Apparently she saw me there during last weeks concert. It's a small world and her friend was wearing braces.

Forecast: Action!

Yes! Finally this interruption in worklife routine is drawing to a close. I cannot wait to Monday!*

The trip to Karlskrona was a success. Dinner at Nivå with Fredrik, Stina, Ina, Johan and Malin as well as to catch up with goodlooking Anna but most of all surfer extra ordinare Henke. One too many drinks of course, but who am I to argue with the liver. Next day was memory trip lane and catching up day. Engangments and babies and sons as well as returning to an old office and seeing some old faces. I had a lump in my throat and belly. On my way home a stop in Växjö with Göran and friends at a lake, which was an unexpected bonus.

Today my uncle and his wife came by with the grandparents for dinner. I also sorted out most of the stuff I keep in storage along with buying a new pair of runners.

Tomorrow, more action, this time in Gothenburg.


*Not really

summer summer

As always, time moves too quickly. So many things to do, places to see and people to meet. So might say it is all about prioritisation, and I would agree, but wouldn't it be great if you could get even more!

Anys, I am off to the Baltic sea to check out the cholera epidemic and get some myself. To night I will be at the old watering holes and see some people from the past in the present. It's gonna be good fun. Maybe I will manage to get hold of Påntåsia and get some wakeboarding again...
