100 LIVE

Last night was awesome! I went to 100 LIVE, a monthly showcase event by 100 songs, which is a very cool new record label based here in Stockholm. 

Saw some cool new artists and hung out with a bunch of great people! 

A perfect monday night!! 

 

 

DJ-ing

I was just for a little visit at Pioneer Sweden's office. I started DJing, and needed to upgrade the system. I have only worked with vinyl before, and felt the urge to get more digital. This sexy little DJ-controller called XDJ-aero came home with me! :) excited to get my hands on it!

Songwriting

Trying to light my creative spark. Going in the studio tomorrow, and I want this lyric to be perfect. I know what I wanna say, but I'm looking for the right words... Wish me luck finding them! ;)

Back on track

Remember I wrote about Mercury Retrograde, and that it made me feel completly out of it!? Well, we are finally out of retrograde, and I feel normal again. Actually not even normal, I feel great! Im back on track, and I feel like things are falling into place again. My energy is coming back, my comunication with others is more clear, and I feel light and happy! 

Found a website that explains more about Mercury Retrograde and how it affects the different signs. Im picses, and here is what it says about us:

Pisces and Pisces Ascendant: All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with or about partnerships, as well as communications with or about family and home, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. It will be important to avoid signing any contracts or making important partnership or family/home decisions during this cycle. Occurring in your sign and your solar first house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to your body language. Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant. You may appear uncommunicative and hard to reach, or what you say comes out wrong. This is a time to review the manner in which you come across to others--not so much whether it truly reflects your nature, but more in terms of whether it is working for or against you. Don't worry too much if others aren't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. You might spend more time than usual when it comes to making decisions now, and this is natural. Rushed decisions may be regretted when you change your mind later on.

Check out this website for more info about mercury retrograde and all the different signs.

At the moment Im working on new songs here in Stockholm. Here are some snapshots from some sessions.

Hvem bestemmer hva som er sexy?

Leste akkurat denne artikkelen i dagbladet http://www.kjendis.no/2013/03/14/kjendis/magnus_carlsen/sjakk/cosmopolitan/mest_sexy/26201066/

Med overskriften "Å kalle han sexy er å gå litt langt", uttaler modellmamma Eivor Øvrebø seg om at Sjakk-geniet Magnus Carlsen har havnet på britiske Cosmopolitans mest sexy liste, som en av 21 menn, i godt selskap med bl.a Ryan Gosling og David Beckham. 

Hvem bestemmer hva som er sexy? Har Eivor på 66 et fasitsvar som ikke Cosmopolitan redaksjonen i England har? Hvorfor valgte dagbladet å bruke det sitatet som overskrift? 

Kunne de ikke skrevet en sak om hvor gøy det er at Magnus er på mest sexy listen til britiske Cosmo, uten å prøve å dra han ned? Jeg regner med at dette er noe unge Carlsen ikke bryr seg nevneverdig om, men jeg kjenner at vinkingen i saken provoserer meg. Når skal vi fri oss fra janteloven og klare å glede oss over andres suksess?

Grattis Magnus! Du er både smart og sexy! :)

Mercury Madness

Im feeling totally out of it... I cant seem to think clearly or get myself together. My computer is awfully slow, my phone just freezed, and in my head theres chaos. Been like this for a few days now,  and I realized we are in an astrological period of Mercury Retrograde. The planet Mercury starts turning in an apparent backward motion. It does this a few times a year, and apparantly it affects our mood, technological things like computers and phones can start acting weird. Also its a bad time for making deals and signing contracts. I know it sounds a little out there, but I believe we are affected by the universe. At least thats what Im gonna explain this confusing mood with. Now Im gonna use this madness and write a song! 

Google Mercury Retrograde or read more here

Remeber to watch Reisebyrået at Canal9 17.30 tonight if you are in Norway! :) 

Happy birthday, Emil!

My brother is 17 today! Woho!  Im so sad because Im stuck in Stockholm, and my family is in Norway celebrating him. Really wish I could have been there with them. He is such a talented young man, and Im so proud of him! :) Isn't he cute? 

Grey

Winter came back to Stockholm today! Im gonna try not to make it a gray day, even though it feels depressing looking out the window...
