Laleh åker på sommarturné

Laleh åker på sommarturné

Efter att hon ställt in flera spelningar sin turné med poeten Kalle Haglund spekulerades det i om Laleh höll på att bränna ut sig. Hon skrev också i sin dagbok att det var svårt att orka med allt, i samband med att hon belönades med både Rockbjörnar och Grammisar, och sedan Evert Taube-stipendiet också.  Men nu verkar […]

Kändistätt

• February 20, 2006 • Comments (4)

Det är svårt att koncentrera sig på jobbet när Andreas Johnson står och vajar fram och tillbaka framför Aftonbladets tv-kameror en bit bort. Jodå, han är snygg i verkligheten också. : ) Fast kortare än jag trodde. Längre bort sitter Janne Schaffer och chattar med läsarna. Jag hade hoppats att Lasse Åberg skulle dyka upp […]

Trying to save money

Trying to save money

I need to save money. But then I got hold of a ticket to Laleh’s concert in Stockholm on Sunday – on the first row. The concert is sold out, and of course I just have to go. But after that I’m not spending a krona on unnecessary things. The trips I’m planning next year […]

New album by Origa

• September 18, 2005 • Comments (0)

I just found out Origa will release a new album – Aurora – on Oct. 5. Can’t wait! The Russian singer, living in Japan, has one of the most interesting voices I know. Buying her music is expensive, atleast the older out of print albums, but it’s so worth it. I hope she’ll try for […]

Oh, look! There’s a wooden floor underneath!

• August 18, 2005 • Comments (0)

It took three days, but now most of the mess in our apartment has turned in to some kind of organized chaos, most of it in boxes in the guest bedroom and in K’s room. I’m calling it the guest bedroom because the presence of a bed in there sort of turns it into something […]

Great Pride week

Great Pride week

Since I had the week off, I thought I’d for once buy a ticket for the Stockholm Pride festival, which has a lot of good concerts. It’s been a great party week, with schlager/eurovision artists, big Swedish artists, drag shows, and a lot of great people. Saturday was the day of the Pride parade through […]

The Ungelt Jazz and Blues Club

• July 5, 2005 • Comments (0)

The music is loud, too loud for me to want to pay the 200 CZK it costs to get into the room where the band is playing, almost too loud in here, in the bar, where you get in for free. The wine costs 38 CZK a glass, about a dollar and a half. You […]

Midsummer

Folk dance (YouTube) Folk dance (YouTube) Folk dance (YouTube) Just like last year we celebrated Midsummer’s Eve at Tolvmansgården in Rimbo. The weather was great, almost too hot. When we got there the dancing around the pole was almost over. For non-Swedes I suppose our Midsummer traditions require some explanation. You can find it here, […]

Oh my God.. the Spice Girls make a comeback. The horror! Why not let the past be the past? Yep, it seems like all the old squabbles are forgotten – Geri Halliwell is part of the group when they now go on a world tour. A “Best of” is to be released, but it doesn’t […]

Meja's back

Meja's back

It’s been awfully quiet about Meja the past few years. But today she performed at Gröna Lund, at the Childhood gala. One new song (I suppose!) and “All about the money”. I wonder what she’s been up to, and if there’s a new album coming. Other performers at the gala were Nanne Grönvall, Shirley Clamp, […]
