(If you're wondering if I want you to) I want you to
My co-workers got a new toy today. It's not really new. We used to have this colour printer on my floor. It was stuck behind Bobbys back, and it was really just in the way. And quite noisy. The support people moved it down to our lower decks where all our trailers and graphics are being made. This is what it was used for:
From top left: Me, Jessica, Frida and Eva.
I guess this is not the way it's supposed to be used, but hey, if it make the creative vein flow, why not.
It was a laugh!
Leo took me to a preview of the movie Kick Ass tonight. I think it's probably one of the strangest flicks I've ever seen. I really enjoyed it!
Check it out here!
I loved it.
After the movie we went back to Leo's studio, I got to listen to the next release from their upcoming album. A cool track called Alpha Bravo. However, I'm gonna fight for the release of Push! I want that one as a single.
Leo also gave away some of his CD's. I can't really say no to free stuff... And I got some really good ones too... Bless that man...
I also got to hang out with Jesper and Cattis yesterday. It was really good seeing them again. Jesper got a delayed prezzie from me. I gave him the 7" Adolphson & Falk - I'm back in love again. Or is it "life again"? Don't remember. I only remember he asked me if he could buy it from me. It was actually missing from his collection. I gave it to him. He is probably the only one I know who'd appreciate it anyway. (Besides me of course...)
Happy birthday mate!
If you only have time for one Youtube link today. This should be the one.
Me and Fredrik went to Debaser last night. IAMX returned to Debaser, almost exactly one year after the totally awesome concert we went to last year. I still rank that one to be one of the best shows I've ever seen.
That's a really bad picture of IAMX.
That one isn't better. But at least it's better than the first one.
It really good, not as good as the first time we saw them, but it was a pretty good show. We had some beer, met some new friends and had a good time. It was a pretty good night. Next up will probably be Ultravox (hopefully), The Editors and BRMC. And I must say, I'm pretty stoked about this years Sonisphere. Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Slayer and Mötley Cruë. I've never seen any of them perform live, and I would be stupid, not to attend...
Now, it's time for me to head for work.
Me and Sara went to Lasse i Parken. We had pancakes in the sun. Outdoors... It was awesome.
Since I moved all my studio gear to the capital of Sweden, I can't say I've used them that much. But I hope that'll change soon.
However, at the end of 2009, we actually got to use them. At least they made an appearance in a video. If you watch closely, you will see my MS10, MS20, SH-1 and SH-2 in the following video.
Check it out here.
And some great shots from the video:
As times goes by...
I went to Karlskrona this weekend to reunite with the Dogs of Distortion. We had a great time. We should do that more than once a year. Let's hope we'll stick to our plan for this summer.
Jonas with his prezzie. A really nice book about tanks! He was very happy with it. I think...
Pelle is really into facebooking via the phone!
Los gringos locos!
And Börje who is having trouble letting go of his new toy, the iPhone.
And finally, some stuff from work. I think they turned out great!
Dine, dine my darling.
Have you ever been really excited about a new record? You know, you can hardly wait to rip it open and listen to it? It kinda happend to me today. When I got home, I had the new Alkaline Trio record just waiting for me on the floor. I've been looking forward to this since spring 2008. Their last record was more mature. Still had some very very good songs on it. Not like my favourites "From here to infirmary" and "Good mourning", but it had something.
I'm almost through their last song on the new album "This addiciton". I'm not that excited anymore. It's a bit too light. Still good songs, but there is something missing. Of course they are older now. The songs are still good, but it's not the same anymore. The good thing is that some records are that predictable, you get sick of them after one spin. Like a very predictable TBR record. (I still like them anyway...)
I'm not disappointed, but I'm not that excited either. I will have to get through this a few times more before I decide weather it's good or bad.

Food for thought
Finally, I got all my shit together and put loads of stuff into the basement. Now, I can actually have breakfast, dinner and what have you in my kitchen. All the boxes are gone. I was amazed over how many CD's I've get to categorized while unpacking the final boxes. I need to go through them and get rid of some of them. It's not likely I'll ever play them again. I might put them up for sale on ebay.
Finally. A kitchen table, no boxes and plenty of room... I've only been waiting since 1st of May, 2009... It's a kinda strange feeling, living without any boxes. It's almost like I actually live there for real.
