Thank Heaven for Tea

I've been sick for a couple of days. Nothing serious, just a bad cold, but it's driving me crazy. I'm tired and coughing and I would rather be outside having fun.
I've done some cooking just to keep busy - I learned how to poach eggs. But nothing tastes quite right because of the cold. Cheese doodles are pretty pointless when you can't taste the cheese.
At least I have plenty of tea - it soothes my cough and cheers me up.

A Defiant Dude

I just backed this guy on kickstarter. Because I love anyone who stands up to bullying corporations. I'm pretty fond of kale too.

For more info on the project check out the project page on kickstarter.

Behold The Hurricane

It feels like I have spent the last few days standing on the edge of a cliff. Do I jump or do I walk away? Do I call you or do I move on? I came so close to jumping, but I didn't.
You were my friend but you will never be what I need. Even if that jump would mean a thrilling ride I would end up hitting the bottom and get crushed. And you're not worth it.

I realized that I am stronger that this. I can go anywhere and do anything. My choices are not just standing still or jumping. I feel the storm growing around me and it can take me anywhere. So I'll walk away from the edge, away from you, and find someone who deserves me.
Behold the hurricane.

Eco-Pirate at Doc Lounge

Went to Doc Lounge in Lund yesterday to check out the documentary "Eco-Pirate - the story of Paul Watson". If you've never heard of the guy you might be more familiar with the organization he founded - Sea Shepherd - or the TV-series Whale Wars.

Paul Watson was a founding member of Greenpeace but left or got kicked out (depending on who you talk to) because he was too radical. I don't agree with all of his methods but I do admire his determination and dedication to environmentalism.

If you liked The Cove you should check out this movie too. Sea Shepherd are currently in Taijii, trying to disrupt and put an end to the slaughter of dolphins. I enjoyed this documentary - check it out if you get the chance!

 Movie Poster.

 Maja from Doc Lounge and Lukas from Sea Shepard Denmark introduced the movie.

Director Trish Dolman chatted to the audience via Skype from her home in Canada. It's really amazing how technology has made it so easy to connect people in different parts of the world. For me, talking to the people who were involved in creative projects always adds extra dimensions to the material.

The Other F Word

I just watched The Other F Word and it was just as good as I hoped it would be. I bought the DVD because I love to support independent productions. And the packaging is really sweet.
