Musicalish #258

I took a jog and saw a deer. It stopped on the path ahead and stared a while. :) It was...


Musicalish #257

Exodus? Yeah!


Musicalish #256

The 1975. I saw these guys at a concert last year, and they really were something else! A style I didn't expect. From another time, and another place. It rained but it was good. Here's something else...


The Kind Of Man I Am

I'm the kind who brings an umbrella to a concert even though I know I'm not allowed to use it, just in case the rain gets so heavy I have to leave - even though I already have a raincoat, and don't have anywhere to put it so I avoid clapping my hands between tracks - saving those arduous claps for the end of the concert, where I manage a few on at least the last three songs with the umbrella wedged vertically under one arm.

But you know what? I think I might be another man next time. Fuck umbrellas. I'm bringing a set of spare pants instead.

Sunday Dues & Blues

So I didn't catch up at all last weekend, and it's been another pretty intense (but not nearly as intense as the last one) concert week since then.

I actually skipped Queens of the Stone Age last Sunday, because the weather was great, the crowd was thus potentially huge (at least 14,000 interested on FB), and I was feeling... kinda tired! I had no other dues in the city either so taking that train back and forth - as I do all work days of the week - didn't feel very tempting. Tried getting stuff done instead. Right...

This week it's been Beck, Brian Fallon & The Howling Weather and Hurula. They were all fantastic, and most so Beck - who wasn't actually from Sweden at all, as I thought, but from California!

Apparently they felt right at home (him and the band) with the heatwave we currently have over here (or had this week - it's raining now).

I didn't catch up at all this weekend either, and tomorrow it's a three day straight of work and concerts again. Full steam ahead. Two more restaurant visits this week, first Hälsocafeet by Bysistorget, where I tried a Knivsöder (AKA Knife South - named after the area with its bloody past), with glass noodles and mango. Delicious. And then I went to Burger King, and didn't forget the gluten-free bread this time. It still wasn't great, but burgers + bread is definitely a better combination (than just burgers).

What else? Oh sign this! ASAP! Been meaning to post it for a while now. It's real important stuff. Really. Censorship. Future of the Internet. That stuff.

Renaine was finally funded a while ago too, yay (the last Kickstarter failed), and I've been doing a voice acting thing. It's a bit bigger a project this time. I stayed up way too late taking way too many takes the first day, but they were received pretty well, so that was great. Hyped to hear the results.

Stayed up till two the night after helping my nephew write an integrity policy for that company he just started too - that had to be done before he began casting the next day. He was pressing up posters and stuff too. Not sure he slept at all. Busy nights - but the weekend's been great after that.

I recorded something real fast for today (reminds me I've got to fix the player interface - it broke with a recent update, but you can still play):

Lyrics are here (you might need them ;). Hope y'all had a good weekend! And see you in a few.

The Dark Tower (2017)

The Dark Tower (2017)

The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black, determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.

Let something epic commence! And epic it most definitely was. The tale of a dark tower that ties together the universes, and a sorcerer waging a war against it - who wants to let the demons that wait beyond the borders in and wreck havoc upon our world(s).

In his way - as well as also being a living tool that might let him accomplish his nefarious evil - is a little kid with impressive psychic power, and the last gunslinger in the world: Roland.

Matthew McConaughey plays the villain, Idris Elba the gunslinger, and Tom Taylor the kid (props to him), and their story is both imaginative and bad-ass! The final action sequence in particular. It all starts almost like a horror movie, but soon moves into fantasy and adventure, and the hybrid of worlds and genres and ideas make for a both refreshingly new and stereotype-type tale. I thought it'd be something like Maze Runner from the initial scene, but I'm happy it wasn't.

I love most of it, but some bits were a little predictable. The sorcerer loses his grasp all too easily. Everyone's introduced impeccably, but over time they lose a bit of their edge and authenticity, and in the end... it's just missing that perfection. That extra spark. That something special that could've kept it apart from all others.

If you like fantasy and action you'll definitely like this though. It jumps right in right away! Great action. Great atmosphere. Great watch.
