Arjeplog

I am completely hooked on Hello Saferide these days. Their new video is so simple and beautiful. It makes me dream of those Winter holidays we used to have in Sweden, and as much as I am longing for Summer I must admit that I truly love snow. Take a look at this wonderful video and listen to the lovely song...

Together again

Tonight we're having dinner at Cecilia's place. Jeanette, Cecilia, Nicklas and I. It's gonna be so nice. It's been way too long since the four of us were together. I miss our good and silly times at school, when we were supposed to work but ended up doing all kinds of crazy things in stead.



And happy birthday to Dani by the way. I can't wait to celebrate with you!

Du fick en kille och ringde aldrig igen

I just heard some news about someone I used to know. Our lives are so different now - different from how they used to be, and different from each other.


I can't help but think of those old times when I hear this part of Sanningsdan by Säkert!...

Hej du försvann en dag gamla vän
Du fick en kille och ringde aldrig igen
Förutom när han jobbar då kan det va fint
Att ha middag bara tjejer dricka vin
Prata om hur jobbigt det är och så, när två
Hydman Vallien-glas går sönder på sommarstället
Åååh!

Congratulations

My sweet sister got a really cool job, so I want to congratulate her!


Hats

I want one of these lamps. They are absolutely awesome and would look so cool in my hall.

Summer is going to take the pain away

Last night we went to see Franz Ferdinand, and afterwards we danced to Blur, The Clash, The Kills - and even Shout Out Louds. Such a nice time.
Today I am just lazy. I spend my time reading Swedish blogs, listening to Hello Saferide and dreaming of Summer. Yesterday we passed by two young guys in the streets of Vesterbro, and I heard one of them talk about that first day of Summer, when you can go out without a jacket or coat. I can't wait for that day to come. There really is something magical about it. The past days have been sunny, so fortunately Summer doesn't seem that far away anymore, and now that I have bought my ticket to Roskilde Festival I can almost taste the bagels, hear the music... and smell the pee(!).

If you wonder which blogs I've been reading I can give you a few examples. Check out Nordell
and Smosch. And I have been reading the journal on Hello Saferide's website. It is so great! Annika Norlin seems to be such a kind, clever and witty person with a great sense of humour and a lot of great stories to tell. Not only does she write perfect songs, but she also posts the loveliest things on the website. I quote:

"When I was blond I got Kylie Minogue about 4635423456 times. Which would have been nice if I hadn’t been smart enough to realise that makes me the fatter, uglier version of Kylie. I would rather be the better looking Meatloaf, hell, the healthier Shane MacGowan for all I care."

And...

"She gave me an apple. It had a worm in it, but I ate it anyway to prevent bad feelings between Sweden and the Baltic states."

You gotta love her.

I'm getting really fed up with unemployment, and I want to meet new people and learn new stuff. Weird things keep happening to me. A few days ago I was going home from the city when they forgot to stop the train at my station. Can you believe it? I couldn't. It was the strangest thing. I mean, I understand the bus driver missing a stop, but the train?! I had to walk home from the next station in the cold, cold rain.

Kärlek är för dom

I think this will be the next album added to my collection of great Swedish music. Thåström is fantastic, and I just love the artwork on the cover.

If loving you is a dream that's not worth having, then why do I dream of you?

Forget what I said about Spring

Today we went straight back to Winter. It's been snowing all afternoon. I'm really longing for sunshine and warmer weather.
I'm almost done with all the applications for schools I wish to attend. I can't describe how much I want them to accept me, so I can start going to school at this awesome place everyday - will you keep your fingers crossed for me?

Now I just feel dumb

sit around, dream away the place i'm from
used to feel so much, now i just feel numb
could go out tonight, but i ain't sure what for
call a friend or two i don't know anymore

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain

gonna ride down to the river where it runs
gonna watch tv and pray for decent reruns
sit around and dream away what i've become
used to feel so much, now i just feel dumb

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain

i'll never understand this emptiness
i'll never really try to understand, i guess
i'll never understand this emptiness
i'll never really try and understand,
try and understand, i guess

sit around, dream away the place i'm from
used to feel so much, now i just feel dumb
could go out tonight, but i ain’t sure what for
call a friend or two i don’t know anymore

sit and listen to the rain
sit and listen to the rain

Timo

We went back to Malmö yesterday. This time to see Timo and do a bit of shopping... The concert was very different from the other times we have seen live, and I did miss Joel and the rest of the gang. But it was good any way. Timo always makes me smile.



I bought some great CDs in Malmö - Hästpojken, Hello Saferide, Moneybrother and Her Majesty.

Weekend with Håkan

The past two days have been great. Saturday night we went to Malmö to see Håkan at Konserthuset. It was a really nice concert, and it was great to finally hear "För sent för Edelweiss" live. But it felt really weird to sit down when all you really want to do is dance dance dance, so after the first song pretty much everyone were standing.



Last night was even better. Håkan finally came back to Copenhagen, and it was such an awesome concert. The band seemed so much more excited than the day before, and I think they could have kept on playing for hours and hours.
