Agony & Irony
It's been a year now. Yes, on May 28, 2007, I woke up at the Hounslow office in London. I went to Heathrow and embarked on my journy to Stockholm via Oslo. I landed at Arlanda late the same evening.
I guess you could say I celebrate my 1 year anniversary today. One year living in Sweden. Man it's been a short year. It feels like it's been a few months.
I remember my and Dannis party at the Rowbuck in Chiswick like it was yesterday. It's almost unreal.
I got to spend a very nice birthday with a great bunch of people at Spitfire on saturday. Thank you all for showing up, and thanks for the great gifts. :) I am blessed with some great friends. It's kinda hard to compete with the ESC. ;)
Again, thank you very much! :)
Oh, I forgot where I was going with this title. The Irony is I'm going back to London tomorrow for a meeting in Chiswick park. Kinda funny. It takes place almost exactly one year after my departure. Pretty ironic. The departure for the flight tomorrow morning is at 7:05 AM. That's EARLY! We're going back later the same afternoon. It's gonna be a long day. But at least I get to see some of my friends tomorrow as well. I hope to get a chance to have lunch with Josefin too. :)
And I'm really looking forward working with the new Mobile Homes single and Lowe album. Both are due for release really soon. Make sure you check them out!
Stop me if you think you've heard this one before!
I went to Leos place last night. First it was hockey night, and by the way, I'm still undefeated! ;) I even managed to beat Doc Bloom!
We watched the Champions League final. From the bottom of my heart. A big congrats to Manchester United. With a bit of luck, they managed to win the game. A very exciting match actually.
Well done. :) If the win isn't going to London, it's far better it goes to Manchester, any day of the week! ;)
The best team in Europe, 2008.
The Winner takes it all... ;)
Last night, after working hard with the Megahype releases, we decided it was time for NHL08. I CRUSHED LEO!
Just look at this picture:
Shots on goal: 2
Faceoffs won: 2
Time on attack: 30 seconds.
Total gametime: 1.03.
Score? It's 2-0 to me! :)
I had a fab night. Leo won... Well, he didn't win one single game. I rule! ;)
I could say I'm sorry
We went to Obaren last night. Universal Poplab had some kind of releaseparty for their new album. It was fun. I went home way too late. My plan was to check out Alice In Videolands releaseparty at Debaser Slussen too, however, I got stuck at home with a severe headache. Blom came over and we watched SWE-SUI. And that sucked! Last tuesday... Shit, I'm doing this in the wrong order. But I can't be botherd to do anything about it. Haha... Well, we went to a party at Imperiet. They have a new "skybar" there. It's WAY TOO HIGH for me. We went there, and had a beer. The party was packed with people working in swedish televison. Don't really know that many outside the K5 sphere. But it was fun.
Tonight we're off to Patricia (I think) to celebrate Celi's birthday. I'm very tired and I'm considering having a completely alcoholfree evening. I can't do this anymore. Wait a minute. I've never been able to do this. ;)
That's not the worst part. I'm not hungover. I've just haven't had enough sleep this week. The worst part is, I'm doing my laundry tomorrow, starting at 9 am. That sucks. However, it's not like it's the end of the world. The end of the world, now that would be... The end of the world!
Now, I could do this in two completely different ways. I could write a long story about disappointment, sorrow and a touch of pain too. But I'm not going to do that. I won't do that due to one single reason. It was expected. I kinda already new. I didn't want to believe it, but I'm not stupid... Sorry, I AM a bit stupid, but I'm not dumb. Man, I could go on forever correcting myself. I'm not gonna do that either. To put it in writing once and for all. I AM disappointed. I am a bit upset I spent so much time on this matter. And people never seize to amaze me. What they do, why they do things and how they do things. No, this matter is now closed. I know I'm gonna lose something that used to be close to me, but in the end, as it turned out, it wasn't really the other way around. If that was the case, I wouldn't be writing this down. Just to proove to myself, I'm actually fine with it. Which I am.
So, what I'm gonna write instead is I've had a few great days back home. I've been on the countryside, travelling like a bat out of hell in a Subaru Impreza. Let me tell you, the adrenaline was pumping. I was a bit carsick when I left the car. But it was nice. I've met some of my old friends, just hung out and didn't really do anything. It's been raining for 3 straight days. And as usual there are a lot of people I've disappointed too. I'm very very sorry. But I'll probably be back in a few months time. Perhaps even sooner. We'll see.
Today I've been to Boost Studios. Tobbe took me there. It's located pretty much just in the middle of nowhere. But it was great. I got a sneak preview of KOR's upcoming album. VERY VERY good. I really really enjoyed it.
Lurbjörn in the controlroom at Boost! Happy as ever! :)
Tonight we went to Harry's, and you know what. I had a great time.I bumped into some really nice people too. I couldn't have been luckier tonight actually. And oh, I kinda taught Fredrik something. Something that'll corrupt him for ever. Sorry about that....
*BUSTED!!* Yes, he's gonna leave a trail of boats. I've taught you well, my young padwan! ;)
So for once, to summarize this "going back home" experience, it wasn't that bad. As usual, time wasn't on my side, but I'll be back.
Shit, just realized I haven't posted the pic of our latest machine at work. Check it out. I think it looks very cool.
And the coffee isn't that bad either....
