If I can't have you...
This is NOT what I wanted. It's not as cool as the black one. Janusch, this is your style, not mine! ;)
Ok, this wasn't something I just HAD to have. I just liked the looks of it. The black one that is. Unforunatlely they don't make this model anymore. Finiding a new one is probably impossible. I guess I'll have to settle for a second hand. OR I could change the mics on my Thunderbird IV. Hmmm. Like I said before, there is a huge difference in sound between Gibson and Epiphone. I was a bit surprised when I got my Gibson SG and compared it to the Epiphone Explorer and Epiphone Les Paul. Perhaps I should try to find a Gibson 335 Goth instead. This is pretty hard. They were only built under one single year. Well, if I'm patient, perhaps I'll get lucky! :) We'll see.
Snow has fallen in Stockholm. And come to think of it, it's actually snowing right now. However, it's way too warm outside. There won't be a white landscape today. I'm not to upset about that. It's the end of March damnit. ;)
See for yourself:
A Schecter Ultra Bass. Dual EMG Hz Bass humbuckers and an EMG active 2-Band EQ circuit power. I have no idea what that actually means, but it sounds cool... Right? The reason I bought it, well, I got it cheap and I just love the look of it. It's not a satin black finish, I know... But it's black! ;)
I havent decided what to do with my Thunderbird IV yet, chances are I might keep it. I know it's stupid, because I'll never use it. But it just looks so damn good. No, I'll probably keep it. One of these days, I'll have a home of my own, and then I'll hang it on the wall with the rest of them. For now, I'm gonna stay right where I'm at.
After the slow rise from the dead, we went to Aftonbladets TV-pris gala at Café Opera. Must have been this tuesday. Free food, free drinks and a lot of celebrities. It was... Nice I guess. Now I'm actually off work for a few days. I was planning a trip down to Kalmar. Now, that's not going to happen. All the trains are full, the flights are way too expensive, and the busses are also loaded with people. All of them got the idea to travel, WAY before me. Nah, I'll stay here and just relax instead. I was even checking for rental cars, but they only had very expensive ones left.
Next time someone offers you a flushot. TAKE IT! I didn't this year, but believe me, I will next time. Not sure how often the flu can strike, but my symptoms are almost identical to the ones I had when I went to London. Except, this one is still keeping me down, after 5 days. Fever, headache and a blocked nose. And cough of course. Every time I cough, it feels like my brain is moving around. I've slept really bad these past few days. You know the drill. Falling asleep, waking up after ten minutes, turn, falling asleep, waking up...
I'm just glad to say, I hope I'll be back on my feet on friday at least. Not sure about tomorrow. I hate being trapped at home like this. Haven't been outside since saturday!! I need to get some more painkillers, so I guess, I'll get some fresh air today.
Midnight picture show...
I was surfin ebay the other day, and I came across 9 Teen Idols singles. That's 7" records, right. These are very hard to find in the US, and it's even more difficult to get them here in Sweden. However, as you might have guessed, I won the auction. I've seen some of these records go for like $30-$40 each. I got them all for $103 including shipping from the US. I'm very happy.
