All Packed & Ready To Go!

Sitting here checking off the checklist over what to bring to Roskilde, while drinking Guld Tuborg and chain-smoking cigarettes. I think I've managed to get everything I need packed... Now all there's left to do is clean the apartment and get some sleep before we take off tonight. The gates for the camping site won't open until tomorrow at 18:00, but after the last four times I've been there, I've come to learn that not only do I not want to wait that long when I've packed, but also nothing goes according to plan when it comes to Roskilde; which by any means is not a complaint -- I love the chaos.

So yeah, I'm killing time, counting hours (28 hours, 8 minutes and 23 seconds) and filled with an excitement only Roskilde can endues.

Ready For Roskilde?

Well, accordding to the checklist I am.

Unless I forgot to write something on it, which is highly plausible, but who cares; I'M FUCKING READY!!!

I want to get back into photography, or rather start to really get into it.

For as long as I remember, I've been interested in visual design/art. I drew a lot when I was a kid, of course pretty much any kid likes to draw, but I was very serious about it even at an early age. I'd spend hours at a time trying to copy characters from comic books. It was all did, beside hanging out with other kids and playing video games that is.
My mother is definitely where I got this urge to be creative from, she's the one who sparked my passion in drawing. She's a very creative person whether it be drawing, designing, painting, origami, whatever really.

I stopped drawing a long time ago, but my interest in visual design persisted. I love editing photos and playing around with photo editing programs; taking pictures, setting up a scene which is to be captured and edited to the desired end result. This is want I enjoy and I think I'm pretty good at it. I should've realized this back when I dropped out of school, pursued a career in photography and graphic design, but I didn't. Instead I'm now chained to a job I hate; a job that's slowly, but surely, draining me mentally and physically, making me depressed and on the occasional verge of a break down.

But enough of that. Right now I'm excited about getting a respectable (DSLR) camera and after a lot of asking around and browsing the world wide web I'm down to two possible candidates, I can afford: the Cannon EOS 550D or the Nikon D90 - I'm leaning towards the Cannon, but we'll see.

"Next Blog"

One of my favorite things to do when I'm bored out of my mind, is browsing through random blogs by clicking the "next blog" link on top of this page. 9 out of 10 times you're just directed to some family blog with a bunch of pictures of children eating ice cream, failed journalist writing bullshit stories or pages trying to sell you something. Things I couldn't care less about. (I realize there's probably those who couldn't care less about this blog. Well, just click that link then, if that's the case.) Sometimes, though, you come across something interesting, real people with something to share that interests me. Insight to some strangers life.

It amazes me how much some people are willing to share with (in theory) the whole world. I know I'm no better, I've put my personal life in display here as well, which is a pretty peculiar thing to do when you think about it. Personally it feels almost therapeutic writing something and putting it out for everyone to see, even though the number of people reading this could be limited to myself. Like I already said, there's most likely a few who's click "next blog" and been directed to this blog, whom in turn thought "I couldn't care less about this," next blog.

Roskilde Schedule

I do this every year; make a schedule of bands to see and time when I should get in line for each band, depending on how eager I am to get close to the stage. I do this every every year, and every year my plans - with the exception of a select few - fall to the ground. I'll end up too drunk or stoned in a camp not even making it to the festival site, forget time and miss one of the bands I planned to see.. Or I'll get dragged to see another band not on my list by fellow campers.

So why bother? I don't know. As long as I get to see Porcupine Tree again, I'll be happy. They're the only band I HAVE to see, the rest is just icing on the cake

The schedule, so far, looks like this:



Kill Screen Music
Kandy Kolored Tangerine


Susanne Sundfør
Mescalin, Baby
Thee Attacks


Night Fever
Sleep Party People
Joensuu 1685
Ghost Society


Chimes & Bells


Solstafir / LCD Soundsystem
- Playing at the same time, but I'm leaning towards Solstafir.
Porcupine Tree / Gorillaz - Also playing around roughly the same time, but as I mentioned above, Porcupine Tree wins.


Alice In Chains
Biffy Clyro
Dirty Projecors / Them Crooked Vultures / HEALTH
- Another timing problem, but I really want to see HEALTH, so...
Tech N9ne
Japan Droids
Beat Torrent
Den Sorte Skole / Hocus Pocus
- I think both will be awesome, so whatever I'm closes to I guess.


Kings Of Convenience
The Floor Is Made Of Lava / Vampire Weekend
: - When I thing about it, I'm not sure I really want see either....
Beach House
Drake / Robyn
- All depending on my mood.
The Prodigy
Moderate / Kellermensch
- I saw Kellermensch last year and Moderate seems to my very limited knowledge of them, as a do not miss kind of band.


Local Natives
The National
Pavement / The Temper Trap
: - Really don't know.


So there you have it. The list that gives the illusion of organization, written to never be used.

The Human Brain

It cannot feel pain. The brain can feel pain from all over the body, but not within itself.
The brain can survive for up to about six minutes after the heart stops...

Summer Breeze 2010

- "I know what you did last summer!"
- "Really 'cause I forgot..."

Yeah, the joke only works if you were stoned with me in the summer of 2004.
Sorry for wasting your time.

Summer breeze makes me feel fine...

Grey Tone Soul

I feel like something is crawling around inside my head
something with a mind of it's own, but with words unsaid
I catch an occasional glimpse of it out the corner of my eye
it's always with me - always nearby

could be the memory of you lingering in my mind
the good time we had and the bad intertwined
manifested is this paranoiac state you left be behind
something malignantly designed

I sense it in the day of light and see it late at night
though still out of my width of sight
waiting for a chance to stab a knife in my back
and give me my long over due anxiety attack

I wonder what to do
while I'm thinking about you
feeling like the living dead
listening to your words spoken inside my head
