I'm only sleeping

When I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head, I'm still yawning
When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream

Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me
Leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
I don't mind, I think they're crazy
Running everywhere at such a speed
Till they find there's no need

Please, don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time

Lying there and staring at the ceiling
Waiting for a sleepy feeling...

Please, don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping


Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time

When I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head, I'm still yawning
When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream

Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me
Leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping

/The Beatles

Monki

North East from the Rosehip Stream,
in the dazzling City of Iron and Oil
the Monki breeds from the old chemicals,
forgotten in the ruins of the old
weaving factories.
They sail from the chimneys, through
the knitted clouds over the wavy sea
to graze shells and become wise.

Sceptre of Deception

Hmmm trying to focus on essay writing is not the easiest task... I have managed to write about 10 pages now, when finished it should be 15-20 pages, so I'm not that far away from my goal! =) I do, however, have barely one month to finish it, plus all the other crap I'm supposed to do in school! Oh, Shakespeare, if I could, I would do as Blackadder and go back in time and punch you in the face. At least sometimes I feel like that :P

If you are wondering what my essay is about I will be happy to tell you. I'm writing a C-Essay for my English course, 15 points all in all, which means points equal to half the term. In words more Linn-like: It's a big ass essay!
"But what is it about?" you may be asking. Well, the title is:
Language use in metal song lyrics: A study of the Swedish power metal band Falconer.
Oooh, a STUDY! Wow, that's specific! :P
Like Bea would say, "splainy?!"
I can share my purpose with you (this is a sneak peak from the abstract in my essay):
The purpose of this essay is to investigate the different linguistic aspects of a certain subgenre of metal music, power metal, to get a general picture of the language use in metal song lyrics.

There! Understand now?
Aaah, screw you guys, I'm goin' home!

BLAAAH!

Ok so my blog is looking weird at the moment because I'm totally changing the background, buttons, etc., but hang in there and hopefully it will be pretty soon. It will probably take some time though, since I am not a computer geek and I AM SO ANNOYED WITH ALL THIS CRAP!!!
I really should be studying, but instead I'm choosing to fuck around with this shit and wanting to kill my computer =) Good stuff, huh?

All work work

Ojoj, idag har jag varit duktig minsann! Jag började dagen med att INTE starta datorn och logga in på msn hehe :P Istället bäddade jag brors säng med rena lakan och stoppade in en tvätt i maskinen innan jag åt frukost. Sedan gick jag ut och arbetade på gården.
Idag har vi hunnit med massor! Jag har hjälpt till att plantera om vinbärsbuskar, kört traktorgrävaren för första gången, grävt ett par gånger med traktorgrävaren, lärt mig att hantera spakarna på traktorgrävaren och kört fast i ett hål med traktorgrävaren. Det var ett ganska kort men intensivt möte jag och traktorgrävaren hade. Sedan grävde Janne en liten avlång grop som vi baxade ner ekan i. Det ska bli ett jordgubbsland i den! =) Efter allt grävande och baxande kopplade jag av genom att byta däck på mormors bil med bror. Jag bytte två stycken heeelt själv och lossade bultarna på alla för bror var korkad och skadade sig :P Detta var första gången i mitt liv som jag bytte däck, och jag var ju faktiskt riktigt bra på det!
Jag kom också på den lysande idén att jag ska bygga en stengärdesgård i trädgården. Det blir nog jättefint tror jag! Får se när jag kan börja med den, snart hoppas jag =)
Hur som helst har jag inte tid att sitta här och tjöta, jag måste fortsätta med tvätten och sen plugga! Tur att det är Shakespeare som väntar, vet inte om jag hade pallat annars...

Peace out homies!

Spring


Beautiful weather today, so I took some pictures
=)
Here are a few of them



Today was a blue day

Idag har varit en lugn och skön vårdag. Den började med att jag görade mig i sängen till 14.45, sedan segade jag mig ner till köket och kokade ägg istället för att göra äggröra. Isses bananer! Lite senare gick jag den knappa kilometern till brevlådan samtidigt som jag lyssnade på HIMs nya skiva Screamworks. När jag kom tillbaka till gården lade jag mig mitt på en av våra ängar och bara låg och tittade på himlen. Gräset var mjukt och luktade gott, Ville Valo sjöng vackert i mina öron och himlen var så blå så blåååå! Jag har haft värre dagar helt enkelt =) Sedan gick solen ner och det blev kallt så jag gick in och läste lite på den tredje Sookie Stackhouse-boken (bokserien som True Blood är baserat på, för er som är oinformerade :P) och tog en dusch. Livet på landet är skönt!


Peace out!

Love it!

A few scenes from one of my favourite movies of all time, Tjenare kungen. It's in Swedish, but it kicks ass anyway =)

Monty Python - The Parrot Sketch



Classic!

- Look matey, this parrot wouldn't "voom" if I put four thousand volts through it! It's bleedin' demised!

- It's not! It's pinin'!

- It's not pinin'! It's passed on! This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late parrot! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed it to the perch it'd be pushing up the daisies! It's run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!



Love it! =)

HIM - Scared to death



Oooh yay I found it! The last 20 seconds are black, but whatever. Enjoy this great song!

HIM - Ode to Solitude



I'm not sure if this really is the official video, but who cares, it's nice anyway =)

HIM - Scared to death (acoustic version)



Since I couldn't find the official video to the original song I thought I'd show you this fan video of the acoustic version instead, because the acoustic versions are so beautiful and I think you need to hear them =)

All the world's a stage

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
Then, the whining schoolboy-boy with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like a snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like a furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then, a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden, and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth. And then, the justice,
In fair round belly, with good capon lin'd,
With eyes severe, and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws, and modern instances,
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose, and pouch on side,
His youthful hose well sav'd, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans seeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.


/Jaques in As You Like It
Shakespeare

Rammstein - Keine Lust



I just love this song, and the video! I especially love Till's sexy manboobs ^^

I'll give the translation for those of you who cannot be bothered to learn German well enough.

I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it

I don't feel like not hating myself
Don't feel like touching myself
I would feel like masturbating
Don't feel like trying it
I would feel like getting undressed
Don't feel like seeing myself naked

I would feel like it with big animals
Don't feel like risking it
Don't feel like going from the snow
Don't feel like freezing

I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
No I don't feel like it

I don't feel like chewing anything
because I don't feel like digesting it
Don't feel like weighing myself
Don't feel like lying in fat

I would feel like it with big animals
Don't feel like risking it
Don't feel like going from the snow
Don't feel like freezing
I'll just keep lying here
and I'll count the flies again
I listlessly touch myself
and notice I've been frigid for a long time already

So frigid, I'm cold . . .

I don't feel like it

Knights of the Round Table




We're Knights of the Round Table
We dance whene're we're able
We do routines and chorus scenes
With footwork impeccable
We dine well here in Camelot
We eat ham and jam and spam a lot
We're Knights of the Round Table
Our shows are formidable
But many times we're given rhymes
That are quite unsingable
We're Opera mad in Camelot
We sing from the diaphragm a lot
In war we're tough and able
Quite indefatigable
Between our quests we sequin vests
And impersonate Clark Gable
It's a busy life in Camelot
I have to push the pram a lot

Falconer - Emotional Skies



This is the only other video I could find with Falconer, and it...sucks. I really do love the song though, so I'm putting it here anyway. The only thing I like about the video is that you get to see Karsten's footwork on the drums. I fucking love it! I also really love the guitar solos. What I don't love at all though, is Kristoffer Göbel as the singer. He is lame and reminds me too much of Hammerfall's Joacim Cans (an UGLY Joacim Cans that is). Boooring! Nobody could ever be a better singer for Falconer than Mathias Blad, cause that guy is EPIC! Thank god that Mathias is back in the band and has been for the last couple of years =)
So Mr. Göbels... kiss my ass, you suck!

Falconer - Carnival of Disgust



Okay, so this is the first video I've found with one of my absolute favourite bands - my beloved Falconer <3
The song is from their latest album Among Beggars and Thieves. It isn't one of their best songs (in my opinion, but on the other hand, HOW could you choose a best song of theirs? They're all so darn amazing!) but it's pretty damn good anyway. Hope you enjoy it =)

Outlander


Yesterday was a good day, because Sandra and I saw Outlander. Like...finally! If you're thinking something along the lines of "But hey, why would you want to see that movie?", then my answer is to just look at the fucking picture. What can you see? The answer is:
Vikings
Need I say more? If you know me at all, then I needn't say more.
If you don't know me, I can elaborate the answer. You can see:
  • Vikings = manly men with LONG, beautiful hair and freakishly cool weapons, like swords and axes, and weapon skills.
  • A viking lady with LONG, beautiful hair and freakishly cool weapons and weapon skills.
  • A bloodthirsty monster from a planet somewhere in space, that is not Earth.
  • Viking ships

I really don't think the list has to be any longer. A short summary of the plot could be good too, if you don't think the reasons listed above are enough to make you want to see the movie.

It is about Kainan, a man from a different planet, who crashes his space ship in a lake in Norway. He saves himself from drowning and passes out on the cliffs (pussy). Later he wakes up and, in about ten seconds, learns "Old Norse", a.k.a. English. He walks along in the woods and stumbles upon a village, or should I say, a former village. "Doh!" he thinks, "Moorwen must've followed me here and killed everyone, damn!" (Moorwen is the bloodthirsty monster mentioned above) "This is potentially not good..."

Kainan is soon captured by some sexy vikings who believe the slaughter of the village to be his fault. He tells them it was a dragon who did it, and even though they are vikings, they don't believe him (weird, huh?). After some more vicious attacks from the "dragon" and a lot of blood and guts (yay! :D), the vikings finally believe Kainan and they start to come up with some sort of plan to kill the beast.

I won't say more, cause frankly... nuff said.

Screamworks

Ok, so I've bought HIM's new album Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice Chapters 1-13, and I am so happy :D Lina and I went to Mediamarkt yesterday and, hallelujah, there it was. The limited edition!
Now you might be wondering to yourself "Hmm, but is it any good?". The answer is:
Hello! It's HIM! Of course it's good! When have they EVER made anything that wasn't good? Exactly: never!
So, what I'm trying to say is that it's good...duh...buy it!

Shakespeare Sonnet 130

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red, than her lips red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.


My favourite Shakespeare sonnet

Räserbajs - Spriten Räddade Mig Från Sporten



"Spriten räddade mig från sporten tralalalahoho!"

Älskar Räserbajs <3

Räserbajs - I Magen På Anette



"Är man död har man två alternativ; antingen blir man vatten eller vind. Jag blev en bomullsväxt."

Detta för tankarna till gymnasiet igen... <3

Räserbajs - Fina Flickor



Det finns ingen video till den här låten, men det borde det göra. En av mina svenska favoritlåtar. Enjoy!

HIM - Heartkiller



HIM's first song and video from their new album Screamworks: Love in theory and practice.
I'm not so crazy about the video, although I do like how they play with the colours and lights, but I love the song, it feels very HIM, and it gets better every time I listen to it. I've missed that particular, special HIM-feeling I get from the earlier albums, because Venus Doom wasn't really...like they used to be. To be fair, I haven't listened to Venus Doom that much... *feeling ashamed of myself* I hope that the rest of Screamworks is equally awesome and I'm really looking forward to it! The release isn't even a month away, yay!

Gothenburg - Oslo - Málaga

Realised I haven't reported anything about our trip to Spain yet, so I must do so now.
It started the 30th December with mum driving us to Gothenburg early. Robert went on his way and I went to Sandra. I had plans to go and do some after-Christmas-shopping, but couldn't be bothered since I was tired and lazy, but mostly since it was cold outside. So I spent the rest of the day inside instead, and in the evening Pär came and drank some tea, ate some cookies and just chilled out. He also drove me to the bus station later, which was very nice of him. Thank you, Pär.
The bus was scheduled to leave at 01.55, but I was there almost an hour early so I walked round for a bit in Gothenburg trying to find some place to buy drinks for the bus ride. Turns out it's not very easy in the middle of the night on a Wednesday...
I then went back to the station to wait for Robert and almost died from the cold (well, at least my toes did), since it was -10 - -15 degrees outside. Finally, Robert came and the bus went on its way.
After a couple of hours, right after the Norwegian border, customs stopped us and checked the bus, which took FOREVER. We had to wait for them to check everyone's passports, get off the bus, gather our luggage, and then get on the bus again. A little more than an hour later we arrived in Oslo. By that point I was tired as hell, hungry and in great need of a toilet. But no time to rest, we had to keep travelling. So off we went, to find the train to the airport. That part was luckily easy enough, and the train ride only took 15-20 minutes or something. Finally, we found toilets! *Hallelujah*
We went through security, bought a rather expensive breakfast, got annoyed with the Swedish youngsters working at the airport restaurants/bars, and then watched The Big Bang Theory until it was time to board the plane. We had now gone for 23-24 hours without sleeping and were completely knackered. I fell into an uneasy sleep on the plane, where I kept waking up all the time. After about 4 hours of this troublesome sleep we finally landed in Spain and had no use for our jackets, scarves, hats or mittens anymore. It was about 15 degrees and sunny in Málaga.
We drove to Torrox, settled in, took showers, had a bit to eat and almost felt like people again. The rest of the day and evening was spent quietly and calmly indoors, in front of the telly. We had dinner and then watched some British New Year's tv show, and enjoyed the fireworks on the London Eye. A few hours later I realised that I had gone for 41 hours without any real sleep, and just fell into bed and was dead to the world.

Happy New Year indeed! :P

- You fight with the strength of many men, sir Knight.
- ...
- I am Arthur, King of the Britons.

- I move for no man.
- So be it!

- Come on, you pansy!

- Victory is mine! We thank thee lord, for in thy merc...
- Come on then!
- What?!

- You are indeed brave, sir Knight, but the fight is mine!
- Oh, had enough, ey?
- Look, you stupid bastard, you've got no arms left!
- Yes, I have!
- Look!
- Just a flesh wound.
- Look, stop that!
- Chicken! Chicken!
- Look, I'll have your leg! Right!
- Right, I'll do you for that!
- You'll what?!
- Come here!
- What are you gonna do, bleed on me?
- I'm invincible!
- You're a loony.
- The Black Knight always triumphs! Have at you! Come on then!

- Alright, we'll call it a draw.
- Come, Patsy!
- Oh, oh, I see. Running away, ey? You yellow bastards, come back here and take what's coming to you! I'll bite your legs off!



xD Love it!
