Faktoider on TV

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

My myth killing idol Peter is on. TV4 Nyhetsmorgon that is.

The Faktoider books here and here.

Watch Out, Hairball!

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

The other day I got a question about my blog. “Do you still write a lot about cats?”. Obviously not a frequent reader ;)

Since Cat hair everwhere, a highly temporary name I thought, became Monologuer in April 2008 the space devoted solely to cats has been…limited. Regardless of what you may think of that cats are still interesting animals doing weird stuff.

This vid kind of gave me a headache but it’s still pretty fun, on the topic of communicating animals. Adjust the volume before hitting PLAY.

#catshatewater Yeah right.

Survivors & Heroes

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

The fires in Australia. People, animals and property are affected but according to the vets in this clip more animals than expected seem to have made it through the heat. Some are burnt but most of them are hungry and thirsty. Like this koala found by a firefighter.

Thank You America.

The best morning ever. There is still hope in this world :)

Nespresso…what else?

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Work just got a little better. Merrier mornings and cheerful afternoons. All thanks to a little black piece of equipment and some colourful capsules.

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Press play!

Double yum ;)

The 90’s - Revisited

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Remember Agent Cooper?

Diane, last night I dreamed I was eating a large, tasteless gumdrop, and awoke to discover I was chewing on one of my foam disposable earplugs. Perhaps I should consider moderating my nighttime coffee consumption.

I started watching Twin Peaks and Agent Coopers classic coffee quotes. It’s fair to say that my memory is vague but I still recall the most odd things. Subtle things, like Audreys Hornes’ body language and Laura Palmers hair sprayed fringe.

Why did I revisit Twin Peaks, this fictive little town somewhere in North America all of a sudden? The reason is as simple as my feelings for Seattle. Whereas Twin Peaks is a fictive town the rest is real. Twin Peaks is partially shot in Washington State, around Seattle.

If I had only known. But I did visit Snoqualmie Falls (photo) that houses the Salish Lodge at the top, a.k.a “The Great Northern” hotel in the series. Without knowing it was Coopers “clean place with reasonable rates”. Let’s bring back nostalgia. Watch the Twin Peaks opening credit or visit the blog that already did what I want to do.

Vintage Airline Commercials

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

Got a time machine? Is it just sitting in the basement, gathering dust? Well it’s time to get it out and pack your suitcase because your in for a retro flight back in time. Remember? There was service, food, leg space, smiles and no 1l zip-loc bags.  This weeks treat from Travel and Leisure gets into one of my favorite subjects; flight attendants! These girls have a fascinating career history that I love to indulge myself in. That’s why I’m going to get myself a copy of this book.

Until then I’ll browse through these great TV-commercials again. Well. Not ALL are that great. Some are fun, some are stupid, some a just right on boring and some are…strange. What’s up with the Air Strip for instance, isn’t it suppose to be…alluring? I’m just embarrassed and confused. What do you think? Find out for yourself.

This one is quite charming and completely not applicable 2008 as it has nothing to do with todays airline so-called-service. But back in the days I tell ya…”You’re welcome very much!”

Wild Monkey Commuter

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

A wild monkey somehow made it into the Tokyo subway yesterday, most likely making a bunch of morning commuters late by detaining them watching the police trying to rescue him.

Monkeys are very respected in Japan. Maybe you’ve heard of snow monkeys? Learn more about them and watch them bathe in hot springs here.

The Kulturkalas

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

Annual folk fest Göteborgs Kulturkalas has hit town again. I’m watching, at a comfortable distance, how teenagers get drunk, families drenched in the pouring rain and greasy fried bread gets munched on.

I’d much rather stay inside, enjoy my fast wireless internet and long for the day I’ll have time to continue my argentine tango. Watching SoUThinkUCanDance does NOT help soothing that urge. Those guys are amazing, and my favorites for this year might well be the “odd” couple, the cute girl and the corky guy that even Nigel loves. Watch their goose bumby argentine tango.

Alphabeat - Too Sweet

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

For me, Denmark is a little plant of one-hit wonders. Usually one album is released and then you never hear from them again until spring cleaning your basement and finding that dust covered album.

Especially two bands comes to mind when I hear, what I suspect will be another bubble gum band, the new product Alphabeat. Saybia and the Merrymakers before them made semi-cholic (rare/medium melancholy) puppy-love pop that could make the suicidal jump and the rest of us slightly diabetic. But I admit that I really liked Saybia, you can detect the lead singers Danish accent in some phrases and it’s kind of nice. Alphabeat is TOO sweet/happy/carefree for me, but I’m sure most 12-year olds are delighted!

 Alphabeats current radiohit Fascination.

More Peters

Russell Peters on indians in gays parades.

Oh, I can’t help it. He’s good. Tuesday treat, you’re welcome.

Little something for you this grey Saturday.

Blandad skön(?)sång

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

Tack vare youtubeformatet är det ju väldigt lätt (på gott och ont) att dela med sig av diverse videoklipp. Kanske tar jag en onödig risk genom att publicera dessa ljudupptagningar, men eftersom de är inspelningar av ledig paussång mellan framträdanden känns pressen avsevärt mindre ändå. Så jag ger er Lunds lussesångare off the record, första klippet från IKEAs trapphus (Nu midvinter, 2, 5 verser) och andra från restaurangen Jurassic, Vinter rasat (1,5 verser). Tyvärr försöker vi överrösta den ganska bullriga miljön med karaoke i bakgrunden.

Tack till Emelie Sjöblom för länken till hennes dinosaurieklipp.

Kul(tur) kväll

Saturday, December 8th, 2007

Börjar ju bli tjatigt det här med mina ledord, men åter igen har jag bevisat teorin.
Förutsättningslöst och spontant en regnig fredagkväll efter jobbet gav åter upphov till en lång och intressant kväll, fylld av kultur, musik och maltdryck. Dessa kvällar, förutom öl och Nef som huvudingrediens, verkar även ha Jonas inberäknat för det är bara med honom i sällskapet som vi lyckas komma hem fem på morgonen dessa fredagar/lördagar. Kvällen började, inte helt oväntat, på Lokal med whisky sours och tomteblossdrinkar (DET var iofs lite oväntat). Fortsatte på Atalante med Club limes, performancekväll med diverse spännande inslag av ljud, VJ’ing, modern dans, sång, film och koncert. Ett pit-stop hos Jonas med vindrinkar och techno och sen The Eye på Nef med Housewives La Fleur som gästDJ. Om man räknar bort att minst fyra personer ramlade in i mig med en fart på 200 km/h tillsammans med innehållet i deras glas var kvällen overall trevlig, mysig, musikfylld och intressant. Nedan bildbevis.

På Club Limes, Atalante, i paus mellan uppträdanden.

Hångel i köket

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

Lördag eftermiddag. Det är tyst och stilla hemma ändå tills vi hör hur det rasslar till i köket. Mattias vinkar dit mig och vi kommer på Chibi. Hånglandes med mitt ört-te. Min slutsats: Kattmynta är en bluff, det är helt vanlig pepparmint katter går igång på. Självklart missade jag inte tillfället att filma kärleksakten. Varsågoda.
