Poe'tic silence

• March 2, 2005 • Comments (0)

Poor Poe has had surgery on her vocal cords and cannot utter a word for three weeks. The past few years have been tough for this incredibly talented singer, since legal trouble with her old label is preventing her from touring or releasing a new album. And now it looks like any good news are […]

Saul Williams

Saul Williams Video clip of Saul’s message: Not everyone in the United States is in agreement with the foreign policy (13MB, not very good quality) The other night Saul Williams was in town. Not to do a reading, but to perform his music. I decided to go anyway, and the poetry he did perform was […]

Christmas preparations

I can’t believe how fast this month goes by. I got back from London two weeks ago and it feels like a couple of days. Christmas preparations might have something to do with it – shopping for gifts, preparing food, goodies etc. – and also a lot of work. I had to work the morning […]

Why the hell are COY not signed?

Tonight I went to an event at Mondo called Why the hell are we not signed?. The main reason was of course to watch Coy perform live. I was very surprised when they started playing. They were supposed to be the last of the bands, but they had switched places with the band before them, […]

Sarah McLachlan spreading her magic at the Circus arena

Tonight’s concert was pure magic. I’ve always loved Sarah McLachlan‘s voice, and most of her songs. But seeing her perform took the experience to another level. She glows. And she makes the words work. She was noticeably touched by the response of the audience at Cirkus arena. It was her first full time gig in […]

Come to the cabaret

When the Södra Fot cabaret was over, and we were the last ones out of there, this is the image I last saw at Cabaret Fot last night. A remnant from an enchanted and funny evening with a lot of different inputs from talented people. Sara de Vylder – pretty in pink in her Carola […]

Personalized radio that (almost) works

I think I have written about my love for Audioscrobbler before – the service that keeps track of what music you are listening to, show you the statistics and make suggestions of other artists you might like. This post I’ll dedicate to their other project, last.fm, an online radio station that uses the data from […]

Traditional Midsummer celebrations

• June 26, 2004 • Comments (0)

I’m not a great fan of the Midsummer holidays. Mainly because of the pressure, growing up, to go to some great party on Midsummer’s Eve, get really pissed and preferably make out with some great looking guy. But most of all, the notion that unless you do those things, you are a failure. I’ve always […]

Shopping in Japanese

• June 14, 2004 • Comments (0)

I ordered some records from the Japanese version of Amazon a few weeks ago. Estimated time of delivery was sometime between June 26 and July 3. They arrived today! A nice birthday present. Less nice was the fact that I was charged taxes and customs fees – SEK 269. Luckily I had managed to order […]

Things falling into place

• April 25, 2004 • Comments (0)

It’s been a hectic week, or weeks, but now almost everything’s ready for the move. We’re doing all the paperwork for the new apartment tomorrow, and we’ll have access to it from Tuesday. Also, I’ve finally found someone to rent my current apartment, after a couple of people backing out. I’m running out of boxes […]

Norrland, continued

In order to cure my cold I took a nap in the afternoon. I woke up to the sound of my cell phone. I had slept for three hours and was supposed to meet Gitta in 35 minutes. Shit. Not quite up to it I phoned her and decided to come to “Poetry in the […]
