How I Spent My Christmas Vacation

So how did I spend my Christmas? Me and my sister took the train to northern Sweden to visit our mother, the Vicar.

Since Christmas is a very busy time of year for the church, my sister and I did all the cooking. We did a small selection of classic Christmas food for Christmas Eve, since it was only the three of us. All of it is vegetarian, and most of it is quite healthy compared to the classic dishes.

Our veggie version of Christmas.

The red cabbage and feta cheese salad is so good we declared it a must have dish at Christmas when my sister made it for the first time.

Since Mom has moved really far north it takes almost a day to travel up there by train, and it's really cold and snowy. When we were there temperatures ranged from -17 (degrees Celcius) to -6.
That means you don't leave the house unless you're wearing thermal underwear, a really thick jacket, ski pants, thick gloves and a wolly hat. I was glad I bought new winter boots two days before the trip.

The sun rises at nine in the morning and starts to set at three in the afternoon. The snow is dry and powdery and crunches under your feet as you walk.

View from the porch at 3 pm on Christmas day.

Lots and lots of trees covered in snow.

We also went to midnight mass in Borgsjö church on Christmas Eve. The church is from the 18th century and is really beautiful, with elaborate decor and wood carvings painted to look like marble and gold. There were over 200 lit candles, snow on the windows and a great atmosphere.

Sister studies the hymns before the midnight mass begins.

We had a quiet Christmas, watched a lot of movies, ate candy, went for walks in the snow and did some shopping at Birsta City.
Northern Sweden is cold, but beautiful at this time of year.

And you thought the metrosexual man was something new...

And you thought men in make up was a contemporary thing... The word metrosexual may be new, but men have cared about their looks and clothing for centuries. Just look at glam rock, the 18th century and medieval knights in parade armor. Heck, even the vikings were vain.

The Runaways

I just saw the first teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic about The Runaways and I'm pleasantly surprised. I was a bit skeptic when I heard that Kristen Stewart of Twilight fame would portray my heroine Joan Jett, but I might have jumped the gun on that one...

But I guess I'll have to wait and see... It would suck if Joan Jett suddenly decided to sit in her room and cry for three months because her boyfriend left town.

It's a lot like Love Like Winter

I'm about to leave the office and head out into the snowstorm. It looks like AFI's video for Love Like Winter out there.

I'm gonna catch a train to northern Sweden soon to celebrate Christmas with my mother and sister. I don't know if I'll have internet up there but blogging should resume when I get back. If I don't get eaten by a bear.
They have them where my mom lives. For real.

I wish all my readers a fabulous Christmas and a spectacular New Year.

Here's AFI's live performance of Love Like Winter for all the punk rock kids.

and Louis Armstrong and Danny Kaye singing When The Saints Go Marching In for all the cats and kittens.

Vamanos Vamanos

The trailer for Left 4 Dead 2 seems to be on every single time there's a commercial break on TV. I don't know about the game, but the song is really catchy. It's Electric Worry by Clutch.

Bang, bang, bang, bang!
Vamanos, vamanos!


Yep, we're surrounded by that white, cold stuff again. At least 60 cm of it. We rarely get this much snow at once in southern Sweden and when we do it causes traffic chaos.

People don't know how to drive when there's snow on the road so they are either going way too slow or way too fast. And for some reason bus drivers seem to be really crap at dealing with snow, so there's huge delays and cancelled trains and buses.

Oh the joy of snow... But at least you can look at pretty surroundings when you're loosing the feeling in your toes and waiting for a train that never seems to show up.

But it's so white and fluffy...

What Abby is to NCIS

The lovely Eliza, who is the executive assistant at BRS, told me that I am to BRS what Abby is to NCIS. I think that's one of the best compliments I've ever gotten.

I didn't even know Eliza watched NCIS...

Never understimate a tattoed woman in a lab coat.

Because All I Do All Day Is Watch Youtube

I work with online media and social networks and sometimes co-workers from other departments stop by my desk and ask how I can get anything done when I'm always on facebook, twitter och youtube.
And they don't even know that I'm running spotify, msn messenger and google wave too.

The thing is, it's my job to be online and keep up with updates, new applications and new social media platforms. I also read a bunch of different blogs and online newspapers. And I often keep one thing running in the background as I am working on another.

Sounds like I'm doing everything at once? It's because I am. And it can be everything from updating a text on a website to writing policy and guidelines for a new website.

So how do I keep my sanity in this cacaphony? By listening to hardcore, doo wop, old Swedish showtunes and watching funny clips on youtube. Sometimes you need a surprised kitty or a blonde punk rock vampire to help you through the day.

Some days you just need Buffy and Spike. Repeatedly.

True Blood, eat your heart out.

The Headlines - Waiting Room

Check out the brand spankin' new video from my friends The Headlines. The song is called "Waiting Room" and is taken from their new album "Making Love To The City".

Neutra Face

Maybe it's my background as an editor and page designer talking, but I think this is hilarious. Possibly the best Lady Gaga parody ever?

Help Mend A Heart

New Found Glory are asking for help. Singer Jordan Pundik's mother Maureen is very sick and in need of a heart transplant.

New Found Glory. Jordan Pundik in the middle.

But things are moving slowly since she doesn't have any health insurance. Her family have set up the website helpmendaheart.com.

"Maureen is a firm believer in prayer and asked us to tell everyone we know to pray for her. She needs a tidal wave of SUPPORT, in any way, shape or form. Time is extremely sensitive and every minute that goes by, she is fighting. Please share this website with everyone you know and help us mend our mother's heart."

On the website you can also make a donation via paypal, if you wish to.

I can't tell anyone else what to do, but I choose to donate and say a prayer. After all the good things New Found Glory have given me over the years it feels good to be able to give something back.

Thanks to Chad for bringing this to my attention!

Jimmy Eat World save me from the November Blues

The days are getting shorter, colder and darker. It's raining. It's November in Southern Sweden.

Jimmy Eat World are helping me fight the darkness. I have Bleed American on repeat.

Vervain at Mejeriet

My friends Vervain opened for CKY at Mejeriet this Thursday. I was there and so was my camera. Here are some of the photos I took.

Live on stage.

Chrille and his halo.

Francke on stage. I really like this photo.

Another of my favorites.

Click here to see some of my previous photos of Vervain.

CKY were ok, but nothing memorable. Bam Margera was touring with them but I never met him. He was really drunk but nice, or so I'm told.
CKY did however have a really nice kid named Lou as their merch guy. He took Tobias backstage so he could show the skateboards he's painted to Bam.

Tobias is a really talented kid who helps out at Saint 21 and is becoming really good at airbrushing and learning pinstriping. Bam is one of his heroes so he was very, very happy.

I got my shot of H1N1 vaccine today. It was quick and a little uncomfortable. The whole procedure took about 20 minutes, and that was mainly because they ask you to sit down and have a cookie after you're done. If you feel good after ten minutes or so, you're free to go.

I use my left hand to write, so I got the shot in my right arm. That arm is sore, and that makes things a little bit tricky because I tend to use both my hands quite a lot. I chop vegetables with my right hand, but I can do it with my left hand. It's good to be ambidextrous sometimes.

I just wish I'd been seated next to Johnny Depp when I was vaccinated...

Fairytales and Real Life

It's funny how fifteen minutes with a good book can make the stress of everyday life fade away.
I read two of the stories in this anthology of modern fairytales over the weekend, and began reading the third on my way home today. I almost wished the train ride home would take longer.

That's how you know you're reading a good book.

My photos in Nya Upplagan

If you pick up a copy of Swedish magazine Nya Upplagan (New Edition) you'll find my photos on page 15 and 16.
Nya Upplagan did a story on the HepCat Store and needed some photos of Rob and the rockabilly way of life. Good thing I have a few hundred suitable photos.

A Suspect Virus and Strangers on a Train

I think there's a bug in my system. My immune system that is. It's an annoying little virus that has been slowing med down for almost a week now.

I saw Rise Against and the 20Belows play at Vega in Copenhagen this weekend. After the first hour I was too tired to do anything but stand around, so no mosh pit for me. Darn.
But I did get to see the 20Belows play, both new material and some of their old stuff.

The award for most rock in one evening goes to Kasper Keen of the 20Belows, who had another gig with the Hitchcocks on the same night and had to run from Vega after opening for Rise Against to make it to the second show.

Rise Against were really good, but I know I would have enjoyed the show more if I had been in the mosh pit. And if the first three songs had been a little more about the vocals and a little less about the base drum.

Anyway, one of the perks of being sick is that I've had time to catch up on my reading and watch some movies. Like Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" from 1951.

Happy Halloween!

You know it's gonna be a good day when your breakfast is fresh mango, peppermint tea and a chocolate bat.

My Halloween started early this year. I enjoyed pumpkin and feta cheese pie, decorated ginger cookies, ate candy from a cauldron and watched Trick 'r Treat while hiding behind a pillow. Then I sang along to The Nightmare Before Christmas, which made my boyfriend roll his eyes and sigh.
Good thing I have a sister who appreciates Halloween as much as I do. And makes pumpkin pie and ginger cookies to celebrate it.

Another photo from my session with Sweet Amanda.

Sweet Amanda for Halloween

I did a photo shoot with the lovely Sweet Amanda the other day. She's performing a new burlesque routine this Friday and she wanted some photos in her new outfit.

Yes, I went a little crazy in photoshop.

Sweet Amanda will be performing at Trash Can Club's A Cramps Halloween Monster Mash in Malmö. Also on the bill are The Gravemen and Torpedo Monkeys.

He Wrote the Addams Family Theme Song

Composer Vic Mizzy, who wrote the Addams Family Theme, has passed away. Vic Mizzy wrote the opening theme and directed the opening sequence to the 1960's TV series, which features all members of the family snapping their fingers in sync with the music.

Vic Mizzy sang the song himself since his production company refused to pay for singers.

In the clip below Vic Mizzy talks about writing the song. The last part where he is asked about where the idea for the finger snapping came from is hilarious.

It's funny that it's so hard to believe that sometimes ideas just pop into your head and then you go from there.

Stevyn Colgan wrote a good post on this subject a little while ago, where he mentions author Neil Gaiman's great reply to the question "where do you get your ideas from?".

I make them up. [...] Out of my head.

Andi Almqvist - Glimmer

Andi Almqvist has finished his new album Glimmer. It will be released on October 28. This means he can chill out and stop obsessing over mixes and the need to remaster certain tracks.

I wasn't a huge fan of Red Room Stories, but I am pleasantly surprised by the trailer for Glimmer.

My Mother's Birthday Present

I hardly believed my ears when my mother said she wanted a tattoo. My sister and I treated our mother to dinner at one of our favourite restaurants, as a birthday gift, when the subject came up.

I did not talk her into it, it was all her idea. She knew what she wanted done too. So I told her I'd sort something out and called my friend Christian who runs Grindhouse Tattoo.

Said and done, my mother and Christian set a date and talked about the design. And today I took a long lunch so I could head over to Grindhouse and take some photos as my mother got her tattoo.
My sister and I gave her the tattoo as a gift for her 60th birthday. I should add that my mother is a priest and just got a new job as a vicar.

Mom was fairly relaxed. Christian was chewing gum.

Christian at work.

The finished tattoo. The fish was the earliest symbol of Christianity.

Lucky Me

I'm a winner! I won a package of Urban Decay make up from from VegNews.com! Yay!

Normally they don't ship prizes outside North America, but they made an exception for me since the make up hardly weighed anything.

I won an eyelash primer, a lip pencil, a lipstick and an eyeshadow.

The Best Music Video Ever Made

I don't know if it's the combination of 80's dance music, medieval surrondings and Morris dancers. Maybe it's singer Ivan Doroschuk's good looks and flowing hair?
This must be one of the greatest music videos ever made. It's safety dance by Men Without Hats.

I've said it before, a lot of awesome things have come from Canada.

The live version is almost as much fun. Click here to see it.

No Guts No Glory

Mr Adam Dorsett is in Sweden for the Tattoo Expo in Malmö this weekend. He spent the day working at my friend Christian's studio Grindhouse Tattoo in Lund.

I stopped by Grindhouse after work to say hi to the boys. Before I knew it I had been there for two hours, playing with ipods and having fun.

Rob dropped by to get another tattoo. Someone suggested "no balls no glory" but he had his heart set on "no guts no glory". Ah well...

All photos are from my phone. I took some decent ones with Christian's camera too.

Christian is getting a new tattoo and looking bored.

Eddie and Christian are watching as Rob gets tattooed by Adam.

Rob's not dead, he's just taking a nap.

Work in progress.

Paramore - Ignorance Live

In a world full of young people who are desperate for fame at any cost, where looks seem to be valued more than talent and intelligence, it's nice to see a female artist who does not feel the need to perform in leotards or a bikini. And who doesn't rely on playback even though she's got a sore throat.

Paramore are playing at Vega in Copenhagen in December.

Everything Happens At Once

I have been so busy that I've barely had time to sleep. It's seems everything is happening at once. This weekend it was the Gothenburg book fair and a release party in Copenhagen for J.Tex latest album.

Book fair, anyone?

I haven't had time to check the photos I took at J.Tex release party on Saturday but if they're good I'll post them later. I was exhausted after a long day but I still had a good time and I sold a lot of vinyl.

We gave Andi Almqvist a ride to the release party in Copenhagen and he couldn't stop talking about his new album that has just been finished. I think he had a slight case of post-creation mania. His album "Glimmer" will be released in about a month.

On Sunday I was visiting friends in the countryside, enjoying some fresh air and home cooked food. Victor, who will be five this December, showed his skills on his 4 wheeler. That thing is pretty fast, it does somewhere around 50 km per hour.


But at least there's time to rest now that the weekend is over? Ha!
Adam Dorsett is in town for the Tattoo Expo in Malmö this weekend and things are never quiet when he is around.

And AFI and Paramore are releasing their new albums today. Crash Love by AFI and Brand New Eyes by Paramore are avaliable on Spotify.
I'm gonna head over to Interpunk and order them right now.

Let's hope AFI make it to Scandinavia when they tour in support of Crash Love.

Three Mint Tea

I have a new obsession, thanks to my sister. It's three mint tea from pukka, a herbal tea with peppermint, spearmint and fieldmint. I have barely looked at the other teas in my kitchen since I brought this box home.

I'm gonna sound like a commercial but it does have a really sweet and fresh taste. I got my three mint pukka from vegetarian grocery store Astrid och aporna in Malmö.

The Baseballs are Hot 'N' Cold

The Baseballs just released new single Hot 'N' Cold. I don't think the video is as much fun as the video for Umbrella. Check it out and decide for yourself.

And about The Baseballs online markeing skills? The band's marketing team should step up their game.
When I went to their website and clicked on the image that said "click here to check out our video" (or something similar, my german is really rusty) I got a new page with no trace of the video. Smooth.
I had to try the page in Explorer to see the video, but they really should fix it so that it works in as many browsers as possible. Or maybe nobody uses Firefox in Germany?
It's not their flash video player as such, because I don't have any problems with the embedded teaser clip about the upcoming single.

They have a nice litte icon that allows you to select language on the website. Only trouble is their english looks an awful lot like german...

Boys, if you need help all you have to do is ask.

My Words and Photos in Pinstriping Magazine

My interview with Skratch about his stay in Sweden this summer can be found in the current issue of Pinstriping and Kustom Graphics Magazine.

They did a great job of creating a layout based on my photos. I am pleasantly surprised with my two pages.

You can buy this issue at the HepCat Store.

In Memory of Patrick Swayze

Many great things have been said about Patrick Swayze who lost the battle with pancreatic cancer two days ago. Some seem surprised that there are so many of us who care and want to honor an actor who is mostly remembered for characters he played more than a decade ago.

I got to see him on the stage in London in 2006, when he played Nathan Detroit in the musical Guys and Dolls. It felt strange and wonderful to see my teenage hero in real life.

As Nathan Detroit.

In this age of 15-minute fame it might be strange to see all these tributes to an actor who hasn't had a box office hit in years. But we are not only honoring an actor, we are mourning the man who brought life to beloved characters like Johnny Castle and Orry Main.
Everyone who grew up in the 1980's remembers Dirty Dancing and North & South.
I named my first cat Orry Main, after Patrick Swayze's character.

As Orry Main in tv-series "North & South" with James Read as George Hazard.

So what if he didn't have a major box office hit in the last 10 years? Nobody puts Patrick Swayze in the corner. Even if he is carrying a watermelon.

What lesson can we learn from this? That you don't need to be perfect or have a long string of hits to be remembered and loved. All it takes is heart, a bit of mambo and one great line.

Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze as Baby Houseman and Johnny Castle in "Dirty Dancing".

My Friends the Cardinals Car Club

There was an article about my friends the Cardinals in local newspaper Sydsvenskan this Saturday.

The article about the Cardinals Car Club is really well written, apart from some minor errors. Daniel drives a Chevrolet, not a Chrysler. But it still captures what they are about.

The article is in Swedish, but you can click here to read a google translate version in English.

RIP Jim Carroll

There will always be a poem
I will climb on top of it and come
In and out of time,
Cocking my head to the side slightly,
As I finish shaking, melting then
Into its body, its soft skin

"Poem" by Jim Carroll

Author, poet and musician Jim Carroll (1949-2009) passed away a few days ago.

Jim Carroll's edited diaries from his teens were released as "The Basketball Diaries" in 1978. I discovered his work at 15, when I saw the movie adaptation of "The Basketball Diaries" starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Despite being a story of abuse, deaths and drug addiction it was deeply moving. It is one of the reasons why I am firmly against drugs of any kind.
I still have the casette tape with the movie soundtrack.

Despite being a heroin addict at 13, Jim Carroll was a basketball star in high school and wrote poetry. He published his first book at 17.

Jim Carroll went on to work for Andy Warhol and shared a flat with Patti Smith, who encouraged him to start a band. He collaborated with a number of musicians during his career. My favourite of these tracks is Rancid's "Junkie Man".
Rancid's album "... And Out Come The Wolves" was named after a line in one of Jim Carroll's early poems.

I looked out on the big field
It opens like the cover of an old bible

And out come the wolves

Their paws trampling the snow

The alphabet

I stand on my head and watch it all go away

Rest In Peace Jim.

UPDATE: The New York Times have just published a good obituary about Jim Carroll. Click here to read it.

Family Photos from Småland

Since this is post number 300 on this blog I thought I'd share something special.
A few months ago I found some old photos from my father's side of the family, stuffed in a box with no names or anything. I sat down with my grandmother who talked me through the photos and faces she recognized.

I've scanned some of them, and plan to scan as many as possible and write down what I know about the people in them to create small digital archive.

This is one of my favourite photos. It was taken in my great-grandparents house in Tutaryd in rural Småland.

From left: My grandfather Verner, my grandmother Inga, my great-grandmother Ida, my grandmother's cousin Maja, Verners brother Arthur and my grandmother's cousin Lilli.

My grandmother Inga isn't sure when this was taken, but she remembers that it was when she and my grandfather were still courting. Verner and Inga married in the spring of 1943, so my guess is that this was taken in 1941 or 1942.

My great-grandfather Ernst, Inga's dad, loved books and read whenever he had the chance. That's why there is a portrait of Swedish author August Strindberg over the sofa.
We still have a few of my great-grandfathers books.

Inga Andersson married Verner Sjöberg in 1943. You can see their initials above the door.
This photo was taken outside the house where my grandmother grew up. After the wedding they moved in here with Inga's parents.

When you look at old photos from my grandfather's family it's pretty obvious that we are related. My cheekbones and eyes can be found on photos that were taken a few generations before I was born.

That said, I also look a lot like my grandmother. I'm a blonde and she is a brunette, but our hair is the same quality and texture. My hair color comes from my mother and my maternal grandfather.

There are a few photos in the box that were taken in a studio, such as wedding photos, birthdays and family photos, but I prefer the more casual photos of everyday life.
They remind me that while fashion and cars have changed, people are very much the same.

Rise Against are coming to Copenhagen

I finally got around to getting myself a ticket for Rise Against in Copenhagen. The show is on October 31st, but the it's almost sold out, so hurry up if you wanna see them.

My friends The 20Belows are opening for Rise Against. I have an advance copy of their new album and it's great. Check out their myspace.

Rise Against.

I'll try to get my hands on a photo pass for this show, but Vega can be difficult to deal with. I'd love to photograph the 20Belows again. It's been two or three years since I saw them live and this time I have a much better camera.

Also, Rise Against seem like a really energetic band on stage, and that would mean some really cool photos.

I really wanted you

A few years ago I had a summer job selling watches in a high street shop. It was the best job I had as a student.
I had a good boss, good hours and the job was in the center of town. The shop was so small that we stored some of the alarm clocks in the bathroom, because there was no other place for them.

Another advantage was that when I was alone in the shop I could play whatever music I wanted. According to head office policy, all stores were given music that we had to play.

But listening to the same "oriental grooves" music day after day was driving me mental, so sometimes I brought in my own music and mix cd's. No one really noticed or cared that I was playing The Queers, Ramones, Bombshell Rocks and Pansy Division.

Until one day when it was just me and one customer who needed a new battery in his wrist watch. Suddenly he started to pay attention to the music, then he looked at me and said "is this Pansy Division?".
He got a great discount.

Vintage Earrings

A few days ago I got two pairs of vintage earrings from my grandmother. One pair looks like faux perls and the other pair is wood.
Both pairs are from the 1940's.

They're lovely but in need of some cleaning. The faux pearls have a few stains and the metal looks a bit scruffy.
Any suggestions on how I can clean them without damaging them are more than welcome.

Vintage earrings from my grandmother.

Roadtrippin' with a 1928 Ford

Last weekend we drove Andy's beloved 1928 Ford Special Coupe from the countryside to a garage in Lund that Andy has fixed up.

Andy drove the Ford, and I followed in a back up car. We drove to the Cardinals Junkyard Jamboree, had some fun and left the Ford there overnight as it doesn't have very good headlights. We drove back the next day to continue the journey from Hammarlunda to Lund.

All in all, it went pretty well. We had to stop a few times to let the engine cool down and had one minor incident when the gas tank started to leak, but nothing we couldn't handle.

Driving thru the forest.

More Scanian countryside.

My photos in Nordic Tattoo Mag

You can find some of my photos in the current issue of Nordic Tattoo Mag. They have an article on Skratch and I helped them out with some photos of him striping an Oldsmobile.

The only thing that annoys me is that they spelled his name wrong on the cover. What kind of editor allows that to happen?

There is always gonna be typos is a magazine, but as an editor you are expected to deliver correct headlines and covers, especially when it comes to names.

Anyway, here are two of the photos that are featured in Nordic Tattoo Mag.

Master pinstriper at work.

Close up of hands.
