The Best Picture Ever….

Sticky

I really dream about being rescued by the guy in the picture above….

Just think how mobile it must be to slay Dragons while eating an ice cream…

Looking at how this guy is holding his shield, not to forget his facial expression, I’m convinced that he would be a great instrument of war…

He certainly looks like he is ready to conquer the worldโ†‘

Whoever wants to have my hand in marriage has to pull off a duel with dripping ice cream in hand, while being backed up by a slender female archer … who will certainly not have any upper body issues at all whatsoever while keeping a Vogue-like pose for seemingly forever…..

I love the facial expression of total retardation as well. Very attractive!

I’m convinced that you’ll wake up everyday with styled hair too if you are fighting some sort of battle….

I’ll put this picture in a frame … if I was looking for someone to fight for me I would absolutely pick this guy ๐Ÿ˜€

I came across this terrible article regarding pedophilia the other day:ย http://medicalkidnap.com/2018/06/08/thousands-of-children-in-the-uk-foster-care-system-are-being-sold-to-pedophile-rings/

And just watched this disturbing documentary, that I found as part of this article (I just need to add that I don’t agree with the conspiracy-theories described in some of these very oddly written articles, but the video below is a very interesting watch indeed):ย http://www.childrenscreamingtobeheard.com/paedophiles-always-protected-children-safe/#prettyPhoto

I’ve mentioned Pedophilia and abuse of children in previous entries here on my blog. The disturbing aspect of it is that it can be rather difficult to report on these type of incidents due to lack of proper evidence. In a previous entry I wrote about the organised infringement on children enrolled in a public school I attended down in Italy. I did not experience anything strange myself, but I had friends who did.

It would seem rather mental if I phoned up old friends that I haven’t seen or spoken to in 16-17 years, asking “Hey what’s up? Want to talk about that time you were molested? Feel like going public? Feel like reporting this? I hope I haven’t traumatized you by bringing up these uncomfortable experiences again after all this time! Have a nice evening!” I’m sure an approach like that would be very much welcomed……

The issue is that kids don’t feel like they will be believed. So children speak amongst themselves, and then it stops there. I’m also suspecting that children are even less likely to speak up if trust has been broken with adults/superiors at an early stage, due to abuse.

It is very sad and troubling indeed. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I watched a horrendous documentary some time ago where Europeans were travelling to Asia in order to take advantage of impoverished Asian kids. A nasty business where a vigilante group of former investigators from Australia were on the case, aided by a priest, who had opened up a school/orphanage for previously trafficked children. (One can certainly wonder why such evil exists in the first place…)

Trust is the issue when it comes to reporting, especially if trust is eroded ย when it comes to those who are supposed to deliver justice. When those who are supposed to uphold the truth and nothing but the truth, go against their moral obligation, then don’t expect much collaboration from potential witnesses and/or the general population. Nor can it be expected that such institutions will stand for ever. It will all eventually eat itself just like an unhealthy culture.

Corruption is disgusting, and yet so prevalent.ย Where on earth do you find people honest enough to do internal affairs properly?

People of faith are very much troubled in our part of the world by low attendance numbers and the crumbling state of spiritual-affairs. I on the other hand have become very much optimistic as of late, because as I said above – true dysfunction devours itself. It cannot be avoided. The more decrepit and obscene our culture becomes, the greater is the chance that people will just reject the whole package all together, and seek out true, solid values.

I fail to see how justice can be restored unless such a change occurs … why would you be honest and do and produce honest work if the opposite constantly gets rewarded? Especially if you feel like a God yourself and have no fear for supernatural forces.

If you are spiritual and believe in God, then you will believe that your soul has been profoundly scanned by a superior celestial being, who can access your memory and whereabouts at any given moment. That will certainly function like a shield towards whatever awkward myths mere mortals might want to believe in when it comes to you, because ultimately you will know that you have truth on your side if you speak truthfully and that God will know.

We humans are not as impressive as we like to think; I guess that might come as a shock to some.

Of course I disagree with evil destabilisation plans, replacement migration into Europe or the U.S.A. etc; but whenever I come across Nazis (& then I mean real Nazis) online (because this is apparently where they hide) I’m amazed at how they take racial solidarity for granted … There have been many examples of white people betraying other white people, even aiding those who detest and loathe Western culture. One can certainly wonder when the people of The West will come together in order to do something that is beneficial to all, the same can be said of the African continent that has been (and is) plagued by inter-ethnic disputes and other parts of the world experiencing the same problems. Maybe I’m too obsessed with people getting the details right, and things being accurate, it must be easy to just fall into one box and stay there.

The Downward Spiral Of Curiosity & Honesty.

Sticky

This evening I decided to re-read my 1st blog book “Thoughts” which can be purchased right here:ย My Book.

It is of interest that typos found their way into the final product even when I read through the blog entries several times, in addition to using a grammar tool. It is my experience so far that the tech we have at our disposal hasn’t caught up yet. I often see that mistakes make their way into my final published entries and I see this with articles published by mainstream major media outlets as well.

I’ve decided to let my mistakes stand though as a testimony to my own humanity and fallibility. Hopefully I’ll publish something typo-free next time around with better grammar. In my own defence: English is my 4th language! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The reason as to why I decided to read through my book this evening was to double-check and police myself. At the end of last year I started freaking out a bit when I received a spooky comment on one of my entries regarding radical Islam in Europe. In addition to this I re-lived the sort of social-media strangeness that I first experienced back in 2015. Wondering if I had caught the attention of someone dangerous I set a number of my entries to Private, but when things calmed down I later went on to publish them as a book. After looking at them again now I don’t necessarily see any controversy, unless one chooses to be in denial over how things are playing out politically for the various Nations of Europe.

It is of interest that my 1st political entry published in early 2016 was written from a completely secularist perspective, certainly aligned with the Europe of today – if one is opposed to imported extremism that is.

Fast forward to November the 19th in the same year and I’m openly contemplating whether it was a grave mistake to destroy Christianity within our continent as it was evidently starting to dawn on me that our values are not competitive.

It becomes obvious when looking at the entries that I’m describing a decaying social construct and a governing elite mistrusted by their own people due to a widening gap between those who lead and those who follow…

When observing small acts of kindness and respect from the current leadership in the U.S.A. towards their American voters (something that is never really reported on in the mainstream media press) you see an effort in place to ensure that “the people” (regardless of how abstract the definition of “the people” is) don’t feel forgotten by those who govern!

President Donald J. Trump shaking the hand of every single Navy Graduateย at the graduation ceremony for the U.S. Naval Academy class of 2018;ย represents great leadership, and it is the lack of such acts that create distance, resentment, and eventually loathing, towards those who are in charge….

In my entries it is obvious that the gap between reality and the fiction sold by the political-correctness brigade just keeps on widening, and that the people are aware and notice, fuelling underneath the build up of total fury.

I hardly mention U.S. politics in my book at all, since this was obviously not on my radar at the time.

Seeing the blog entries now gives me the chills since what I describe is a crumbling Europe, where certain demographic groups have been planted into every single European Nation, which surely looks like a deliberate act of long-term de-stabilization.ย 

I address the symptoms of continental illness, but without rudeness, I make the distinction between the moderate and the extreme. That being said; the fixation that naturally ensues when one knows what the truth is and pursue this truth further, is not a healthy endeavour. I’m amazed I haven’t had an aneurysm yet, because heavens knows: the current predicament of Europe makes me sick!

The reason as to why people become entangled in this obsession, is because people know that their concerns are legitimate and right. They keep on going and going and going and going, not necessarily out of ill will but because they know that they are speaking the truth and that matters will only get worse, much worse, if nothing gets done.

The irony of course is that something can only be done by those who have the power to do so, the question is whether there is a willingness, and that is where the division between “the people” and those who decide kicks in, not to forget that an unwillingness to act will probably give birth to competing entities that bypass established institutions….

An incredulous political vision is being pursued in Europe today; and I hope that the emergence of bold, conservative leaders will give us a much-needed shift before a peaceful re-setting will be out of reach.

The wider the gap gets, the more troubling is our future.

Freedom in Europe & Tommy Robinson. Freedom in U.S.A. & Roseanne Barr.

Sticky

I became greatly troubled when I heard the news of how Tommy Robinson had been sentenced to 13 months in prison for standing outside a courthouse streaming from yet another grooming case. What I found especially worrying was that no one in the press were allowed to report on it, until the ban was lifted today (Thank God). Now I do not consider myself to be a member of the press, but I’m a civilian Westerner who participate in our societies, which is what we are meant to be doing … I sign petitions that are being passed around the digital world, I’ve sent some emails to local representatives asking about MicroPlastics in our drinking water, I’m helping out in the local community and I registered myself as a voter last year and campaigned within the family to get as many votes with me as possible down to the Norwegian embassy in London. I also shared information on my blog regarding the election and promoted the whole ordeal everywhere in order to inspire my fellow Norwegians to participate in the democratic process!

I sent an email to the local Parish council wondering if I could be of help, since I knew that there was a position open and that they struggle to get new people in. I was not eligible due to the particular EU deal that my country of origin has – but if I had been eligible I would have been very happy to help! I live in a small village and feel that I’m experiencing the best of England. My experience of this country is nothing but good. That being said I am seriously considering investing in Medieval Chain Mail for my next London trip … since it is illegal for people to protect themselves in this country……

I myself don’t have to worry about “Trucks of Peace” at the local Christmas market where I live, but I also understand that there is no guarantee that this Utopia will continue….

Today I saw #police officers with machine guns during church hours, standing right in front of where we had to walk to get to the morning service. "What on earth is this I thought? Is this how bad things have gotten?" I guess the security had a lot to do with what was being celebrated. #thebattleofbritain & the #royalairforce ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป Today we celebrated the #heroes of #ww2 & also saw young #cadets marching.

I live in one of the safest areas in the UK and can in many ways just turn a blind eye to the suffering and fears that other people in this country have to deal with, but I have not.

Whenever a person decides to voice their opinion there is usually a turning point and for me that was the one year anniversary for the attack on Charlie Hebdo in France.

Like many troublesome things … it all started with France…..

 

#JeSuisCharlie #CharlieHebdo #Solidarity

A post shared by The Commander In Chief (@thecommanderinchief1) on

You see … I lived there for a year and attended school there, so I know that you will never get any good grades at all, if you don’t participate in the exchange of ideas.ย Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is the beauty and the essence of France’s greatness. At least in my opinion. It is all about having your say and expressing yourself, being yourself, being YOU and celebrating libertรฉ, รฉgalitรฉ, fraternitรฉ!

Regardless of what you might want to believe, the French are fearless. They are not interested in their rights being taken from them, they are not interested in being treated unfairly, and will march out in the streets, throw their fist in the air, and let the whole world know what they think!

Sure, I do not envy anyone working within the French Government, as that must surely be a challenging endeavour. In fact, I would probably sleep in a bunker every single night if I was Macron.

Yet it is this passion and this celebration of individualism that makes France so very fascinating, even if the French are picky when it comes to how you speak their language….

A year after the vicious attack on Charlie Hebdo I couldn’t get over it, I couldn’t let it go. Nobody else seemed to care anymore. There were no hashtags, there were no flag-filters, people were busy with their own affairs and seemed like they had forgotten.

To me it was the day that I published my very first entry about the current continental crisis that we are standing face to face with in Europe today. At the time I didn’t know as much as I know now, I’ve changed somewhat, but I knew that I had to speak my mind and speak up for our part of the world, and whether people agree with my particular values or not; that is precisely what I did.

After this I’ve expressed my opinions online continuously and can’t understand for the love of God why Britain would be interested in deconstructing itself, a phenomenon that isn’t solely English, but a cultural and political issue that can be observed all over the Western world.

In fact I’ve started to wonder if there is a biological expiration date in the “coding” and whether or not this can be credited to the self-destruction mode that apparently has been activated among peopleย withย pale complexions all over the world regardless of geography….

But that would mean giving up on The West and I’m not willing to do that.ย 

I myself have never participated in any protests anywhere in the world and have absolutely no crime record at all whatsoever, anywhere. In fact, if one was to dig properly, nothing can be found, besides my opinions, my sense of humour and me sending slightly (in fact very) retarded messages to people I’ve considered my friends – because yes – I do like to troll people, and yes that will sometimes result in you falling flat on your face. That being said; if I know that I’ve been acting like a fool, I will also apologise.

The idea that I could all of a sudden be some kind of an enemy due to what I’ve liked on Facebook, re-grammed on Instagram or re-Tweeted on Twitter, seems absurd. If I was to be considered a criminal due to openly supporting the US President or for opposing deconstructionism in Europe, then we’ve officially dishonoured all of those who’ve died in the past to allegedly secure us our much envied freedoms…..

I’m asking myself why people have died for their countries if their legacy is to be overshadowed by “The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe,” and that is precisely the disgustingย monstrumย that we’ve degenerated into if you’ll get a SWAT team crashing through your front door at night for standing with your country of residency, rather than promoting the caliphate, burning the flag and/or demanding reparations due to some legitimate or un-legitimate offence in the past.

Am I asking the Germans for money? Am I suing them? Am I eating cake when Germans are killing themselves with their self-destructive policies? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding no. I am the last person interested in a German shouting at me, which they easily resort to it seems, but even though this is true I’m not popping the champagne when their Nation is going to shit. There are people out there who want reparations now because of the TransAtlantic slave-trade, there are people who try to play all kinds of cards due to colonisation: “Remove your flag – it is a sign of imperialistic oppression.” Do you want to import these type of attitudes into your country? Well not if you want your country to survive.

When I started sharing my concerns regarding Europe here on my blog I certainly didn’t sit here with a strategic master-plan. I’ve expressed my opinions as a European resident/citizen, and these concerns are legitimate. I do not have a go-bag underneath my bed, nor do I have 50 different fake passports in my safe, nor am I currently trying to destroy my own fingertips so as to make identification harder, nor do I have a stealth-Niqab at the ready.

If you live in a dictatorship you know that liking something on a social media platform, if you even have access to such a thing, can be the equivalence of firing a shot. There are a great number of Christians out there who live in constant fear that people will find out that they have a Bible in their household. People are afraid of speaking their minds all over the world and if one thing is to be said it is that you should never go into a fight or a battle if you are ill-prepared.

If the conclusion I reach regarding our current Europe is that you must have a grand strategy in place before you can even say something at all online, then we’ve already lost. Thankfully I read this evening that it is alright for people to share the news regarding Tommy Robinson’s arrest, and that was surely a great relief.ย 

Now; I’m not trying to say that Robinson is a Saint, I do not know the guy, have never met him, but I’ve seen some of his content. This man loves his country and hates what it is becoming, from what I can tell. He is also the last man who I would want to piss off, because believe me, if this man feels wronged or if he is on to something, he will not stop. I’ve seen how he has confronted those who try to bring him down and that is precisely why he is now in prison. ย He displays the same drive and energy that can be witnessed when mainstream media people are running after a person they want to get hold of and/or target. He is obsessed with the future of his own country and has risked everything for his cause. By throwing him into prison he has automatically been given the martyr status that any sensible opposition should have avoided. Whether he survives his very long sentence or not;ย he has become a symboland symbols never die.

It was clumsy to silence the press, it drew instant attention and made the story go viral. I mean look at this:ย http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/26/redacted-arrested-for-redacted-outside-redacted-leeds-crown-court-issues-media-ban/

Since I’m a Westerner, who lives in a free democratic world, with freedom of speech as one of its/our greatest virtues – I haven’t exactly prepared for a battle. I represent the very individualism that our part of the world champions, but this also means that I’m not exactly meeting in secrecy with unofficial organisations that will have my back if I’m all of a sudden considered an official threat for being pro-English, pro-Europe, pro-French, pro-Scandinavia, pro-American – in other words – pro-West.

Am I guilty for being curious? And am I guilty if I care about the well-being of this country? You see that is the impression one can easily get….

Yesterday I got pissed off when I saw a Tweet from Gad Saad. It is certainly rich to sit over in Canada and ask oneself why on earth people aren’t talking about Mr.Robinson over here in Europe when the media has officially been told to shut up about a non-ethno-Nationalist being thrown into prison, where he will probably end up getting killed! Gad Saad doesn’t even live here, and if you all of a sudden suspect that you’ve woken up in the new USSR, then it certainly isn’t risk-free to address our current challenges, especially if you officially stand alone without any firm and/or confirmed alliances. Apparently this hasn’t crossed the mind of someone like Saad … if the gag order had not been revoked I could have concluded a much shorter entry by making a point of:

“what Mr.Robinson? There never was a Mr.Robinson in Section E-42856? Welcome to The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe!”

Thankfully I’m not ending a blog entry with these words … or at least not yet.

In other news this evening I saw that Roseanne Barr was thrown under the bus today by everyone; even Breitbart, after she Tweeted something insulting to Valerie Jarrett using the word “ape.” Now I’ve actually referred to myself as an ape in one of my older entries. I do believe it was “pale nordic ape” … but then again I do think that all humans think too greatly of themselves … we are all silly little apes caught up in silly little arguments, wasting away, consumed with petty disagreements, but I guess this thinking of mine is worthless in an age where any comment, and especially any insult, can become lethal ammunition if used right.

Roseanne Barr’s comment was clumsy and I think the reason as to why I didn’t get really, really, angry is because I’ve referred to myself as an ape in the past. Then again I cannot really see myself calling a brown-skinned individual, or a minority person, for ape, because why on earth would I? It was a really silly or thoughtless move in an age where people are looking for racism and anything they can use anywhere!

Roseanne Barr gave the left what they wanted and what they are always on the look out for … I’m guessing that it would be catastrophic if President Trump now went out and defended Mrs. Barr, because the President has to deal with his own accusations of racism, something that he seems to be battling daily. (Record Low Unemployment Rates for Minorities in the U.S.A.)

This means that Roseanne has been disavowed by everyone which is a pity, because her show was much-needed. The opposition won, or at least this time around. Roseanne’s show has to come back because it was important, and people loved it. The fact that the left dictates what is allowed or not has to come to and end, because they insult and behave badly yet somehow manage to portray themselves as having the moral high-ground time after time. As of now there are lots of politicians all over the Western world who live in fear over what the media might write about them and this results in them having no balls, quite frankly.

The deconstructionists will win if they are allowed to dictate the rules of what one ought to talk about and what one oughtย not to even think about.ย

Numbers & What They Reveal When You Blog.

Sticky

Today it is Sunday and since I’m trying to be a good, civilised, Christian I should not think about work today, or do anything work related. Yet sometimes that can be easier said than done, especially if feeling somewhat inspired….

So today I sang! I love singing and can’t wait to share videos of myself doing the coloratura repertory! So far I’ve been posting “teasers” of myself working on virtuoso arias and with the exception of ย “Solveig’s Song” (featured on my #1 Amazon bestselling classical album), I haven’t shared much from my Bel Canto adventure. I’ve used my training to sing my own music, now I’m finally ready to show people the classical side ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Whoop whoop whoop whoop whoop ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

So today I felt very excited and promoted myself on Instagram, and therefore ended up checking my profile over and over out of curiosity. Would I get likes fast? Would it go slower than usual? Would I get any buzz? Hmmm? Hmmmm?

Then I decided to go to my blog to look at my numbers … what do people really want to read about?

I started this project back in 2015 after fans were requesting a blog. I’m not quite sure what people thought I would be writing about, but it is interesting that my most popular blogging year was the one when I was mainly writing about myself, and myself, and yes; myself, myself, myself, and myself โค

I was surprised to see that I could have an impact and not be hated by my followers and fans by going all politico in my 2nd year of blogging, I thought that this was kind of cool! I liked that I could have my say without making people upset. I will get back to that a bit further down in my entry….

Now I first want to write about my most popular entries after almost four years of blogging….

As it turns out, it is apparently really cool to write about oneself….

My number one entry of all time is this one:ย I have a tiny problem.ย A really silly entry where I got caught up in our dysfunctional pop-culture and decided to “come out of the closet” by self-diagnosing myself with OCD. Yes I know, really great! We all fall flat on our faces sometimes and in this age of ours where we live increasingly online it goes without saying that idiocy can seem ever more prevalent and be blown out of proportion. What can I say? Our world glorify obesity and mental health issues. Everything is normalised and if you act like an idiot or have any quirks, then there is probably a label out there that you can proudly embrace … A fun thing to note is that while mental health issues are popularised to such an extent that everyone now thinks that they have one, (whether they go out with it online or not) terrorism, high school shootings and anything bad is credited to mental health issues………

I’ve become convinced that people are being duped big time with all of this “coming out.” If you are gay; come out, let as many people as possible know. If you are physically unhealthy; celebrate it, do not try to change! Pose! Let the whole world see you in all your splendour! If you have an STD; then let the whole world know! Be proud! Feeling down? Come out with a depression! Do not think about how this can be used against you later! Not sure what you are or where you fit in? Then come out as “alien kin” or stand in solidarity with whatever group!

Quite frankly it sounds like all of this “coming out” sets us up for a massive purge. Want to kill all the gays? Go to the Pride parade or find them online! Want to find the alternative goth people? Go for online communities. I had never heard of a “social media” platform until I had my first “alternative” friend, (which I thought was very cool by the way, since I eventually found a group of people to hang out with who dressed like me and were into the same kind of music like me) she was using a social media platform for Goths. I had the impression that these type of things were of interest to “outsider groups” or people with un-trendy preferences in order to find like-minded people, never in a million years could I have imagined that everyone would plug themselves into some sort of online community. Myself included! I have to say that I thought that Vampire Freaks looked kind of cool when I started an artist page on there; but I quickly lost interest. I prefer real-life interactions actually.

When thinking about the openness that we are currently celebrating in our part of the world, I cannot help but feel that it is some sort of trap. If all of a sudden there is a culture change and/or another less tolerant group invades us, it would be easier I imagine to create lists over “undesirable elements.”

I also find it interesting that my entry above became so popular. It shows how interested people are in gossip and how “pop” it is with dysfunction, especially if it concerns a YouTuber and/or artist. It got plenty of shares as well :/ Awkward to say the least, and evidence to me that there is something odd with our culture since I actually wrote this and put it out there. You are never immune to the influence of the time that you live in. All you can do is repent if guilty of something serious or consciously move away from movements that are unhealthy or dangerous.

My most popular entry two years in a row, and my 2nd most popular entry of all time, is this one:ย Skin Care. Red Flag Alert!

That is an interesting thing to note when you are not a beauty blogger and you’re not even actively promoting a skin care entry that was written out of curiosity. What can be found within our little bottles of wonder? Well it is obvious that there are plenty of women asking themselves the exact same thing all over the world and that people are conscious of what they put on their skin. Have people always been concerned with this or is it a new phenomenon due to increased focus on eco-friendly products, etc;? That would be interesting to know.

If I was to feed “the machine” and satisfy “the market” I would change my current interests and only write about various beauty products. That would certainly mark a massive change in blogging style but maybe it would turn my blog-hobby into a proper hit?

My 3rd most popular entry of all times is thankfully one about guitar playing. Thank God! I guess I would have been worried if none of my music industry related articles were in the Top 5….This entry has been set to private, since I’m planning on releasing it as part of a proper book. My tips were available for free for a very long time! If people are interested in guitar lessons they can get in touch via my website or my social media ๐Ÿ˜› Or even better: go to my Patreon ๐Ÿ˜›

My fourth most popular entry of all time is another appearance related one.ย (Interesting that people are so interested in looks). In this one I was writing from the typical “empowered female” point of view where you tell your haters to sod off and that you have no interest in changing for anyone, or anything. I can’t even remember why I felt inclined to write such a thing? I’ve never suffered from any feelings of inferiority due to my appearance, in fact, I’ve been very laid-back ever since picking up a guitar.

When I was working on my classical album however I wanted to change the design of my uniforms and be more feminine, because I guess that’s what happens if you’ve been in a male-dominated industry for too long. I was always trying to play down my femininity when I was hanging around metal guys in order to not stand out too much. I only really looked great when I was performing. At one point or the other though you’ll get tired of looking androgynous. You will yearn for more skirts, hot pants and high-heels.

It feels more natural to dress up when you have lots of female friends, because you do not want to be the ugly one. If surrounded by teenage boys and intimidating beer drinking metal guys, you’ll probably feel like going more incognito.

This entry has also been set to private since I’ve included ย it in a book I want to publish. I find it funny that I made a point of how honest this entry was. Aren’t all of my entries honest?ย appearance blog .jpg

My 5th most popular entryย is about “hopeless musicians.” I created a list with 22 cases of questionable behaviour from weirdos in the rock’n’roll scene. I didn’t mention any names or give out any details, I just wanted to share with the world how difficult it can be to put a band together. I certainly laughed a lot when I wrote it. It was funny and instantly became very popular. I wasn’t trying to be rude, there are just an awful lot of strange scenarios that you’ll find yourself in if you are a solo-artist and you have to get a band. The entry has been set to private and will be published as part of a show-biz book.

So what happened when I decided to go full politico?ย 

At first I was surprised that I could actually have some sort of impact. That there were people out there who agreed with me and that my opinions could actually reach others and maybe even affect their voting! Aha! Who would have thought? Fearing that maybe I would alienate fans I couldn’t believe my eyes when my EU entry became my 2nd most popular entry in 2016 and didn’t get me lynched (at least not yet)!

I’m guessing that it became so popular because it was pro-“the people,” pro-English and profoundly pro-European. I was criticising the sacrifice of health and nationalism on the altar of absolute corporate greed stating that we shouldn’t throw out what labour unions have been fighting for in our part of the world. Most people will be working class anyway, so that can explain the appeal! I was also very supportive of the NHS, a support that I’ve lost after experiencing being ill for a prolonged period of time….

Even though I’ve been a staunch defender of socialised health-care I ended up going private when I stood face to face with health problems myself. I therefore feel that it would be hypocritical of me to still promote something that is clearly not working in our part of the world. It saddens me actually. I wish it could work.

As far as my comments on excessive anti-National-interest corporatism is concerned, I don’t believe that corporations should be allowed to walk all over “the people” or entire Nation States. To me it sounds immoral, just like it sounds wrong that a Nation State shouldn’t be able to control its own food production.

I’m guessing that the EU model looks good on paper but can have catastrophic consequences if food storages are needed in a time of crisis and you as a Nation State have let harvesting opportunities go to waste, due to politically correct arrangements.

Think about all the people who died of hunger in The Soviet Union. We might eventually find ourselves in a similar situation due to extreme weather.

When looking at this entry now I’m guessing that some Americans could feel that the entry was somehow anti-American, but that is not the case. It doesn’t criticise the various population groups in America in any way. I was clearly concerned about corporate America plundering our Nations through a trade agreement with the EU that would have affected its member states without its member states having any say in the matter. I don’t think it is unreasonable to be concerned about such a thing.

As far as food production is concerned it is true that we are generally more paranoid when it comes to pesticides, etc; Is this wrong? I think not. I might be openly conservative but my prepping-project is based on organic, vegan, politically correct, vegetable growing. I’m not going to pretend that the environment doesn’t matter. Just like I can’t pretend that socialised health-care works.

If you want to read my political blog entries you can now read them in my 1st blog book: “Thoughts.”

My 4th most popular entry in 2016 was the one I wrote about “The Presidency” after Donald J. Trump’s unexpected victory. I was thrilled that someone finally spoke about bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.A., I wrote about outsourcing and criticised treacherous extreme capitalism, where people only empower the East “leaving the West in a ruin” years ago. I wrote this when I was in my late-teens and couldn’t believe my eyes when a Presidential candidate was concerned with not only this, but also with Urban America.

I read President Donald J. Trump’s “contract with the American people,” and liked it very much, but could certainly see how he would end up being criticised and worked against. I was proven right to a certain degree; only that I based my predictions on his campaign promises and politics alone. That is obviously not what has happened since he’s been spied on and have been dragged into all sorts of scandals, all in the name of getting rid of an annoying political threat. I’ve been quite shocked to see how all sorts of media outlets have ganged up on the current U.S.President to tear him down and get rid of him. I predicted that he would end up being treated like the new George W. Bush. Trump has been in the receiving end of not just that, but a total witch hunt. It is quite something to witness. My “Presidency” entry proved popular, I’m guessing it was alright to people since I revealed that I had previously been a fan of Hillary Clinton … In addition I didn’t trash Barack Obama either, even though I was never a fan…. I kept things civil in other words.

My 2nd most popular entry in 2017 was my short review of the documentary “Empire of Dust.” It surprised me that it became so popular, and in the end I found it so disturbing that this article had a constant presence in my “most read” section, that I set the entry to private.

The movie was not very flattering for Africans, but certainly very much so for the Chinese who are moving into the African continent in full force.

I do not come from a place of prejudice or racism and was quite frankly shocked when I found myself exposed to street-level diversity in my teens, as it certainly clashes with the image that is sold to the masses. The truth is that street-level diversity is downright dangerous, something that is seemingly meticulously covered-up by the mainstream media in particular. This is a disturbing realisation as it endangers the public.

I feel incredibly lucky that I survived living in some of the areas that I’ve sadly been exposed to in the past.

Now that I’ve read through my entry again I think it is fairly obvious that I felt awkward about watching this film. It doesn’t look good at all. If you really don’t like black people you’ll probably feel like your instincts have been proven right somehow, but if you don’t come from a place of innate racial hatred, you’ll find this a sad watch.

Africans are about to get colonised once again, but not by the so-called evil “white man,” but by the Chinese.

One can certainly wonder when African tribes will stand up for themselves and take what is theirs. I’m not a fan of replacement migration and destabilization in Europe, but I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I support “probable future abuse of Africa” at the hands of China. The Chinese need resources and they need space. If Africans are to stand up for Africa, then they probably have very limited time. What makes the situation even more problematic is the fact that Africa is an extremely diverse continent with lots of different ethnicities that don’t really see eye to eye. An important thing to remember for those who think that all black people are the same, or who want to believe in racial solidarity…..

empire of dust

My favourable review of the communist publication “The Class Struggle ,” was my 8th most popular entry in 2017 which is very interesting when thinking about how many entries I actually wrote last year … A great number of them were actually about the Trump administration and about the Norwegian election, none of these entries made it into my top. 10. That being said there were lots of clicks on my “Home Page/Archives,” but that doesn’t tell me the views on specific articles. It just means that a certain number of people scroll around on my page, and this always represents the majority of views.

Some might scratch their heads wondering why on earth I would give a thumbs up to a radical newspaper such as this one, but the writing was good and a number of the articles showed a National concern rather than a globalist focus. I picked up the paper full of prejudice due to an article I saw about the reformation, where it was suggested that Islam would naturally go through something similar … as if though reformation movements just happen because of global innate human progress….when I started reading the paper from front to back though, I realised that there are a lot of good journalists and writers out there who work for the “reds.”

My 7th most popular entry was a joke post, where my brother and I dressed up like SJWs. I ย don’t think anyone understood the humour. We had fun at least….I tried my best to look like a proper left-wing journalist. I think I succeeded.

sjw entry

So far I don’t have a single new blog entry of what I’ve published this year in my Top.10 for 2018. Either I’ve been lousy with my Tweeting or Twitter has shadow banned me, maybe even both for all I know. Last year I was ill and had plenty of time on my hands to write, this year I’ve been very eager to get back to work. I have not written much about myself nor have I published entries about beauty and/or looks. My skin entry is still on number one, but there are a couple of interesting articles from last year that have climbed up in popularity all of a sudden…..

My 3rd most viewed entry so far this year is this one called:ย Diversity โ€“ Why It Is A Complex Issue.ย What is especially interesting to me is that it was down on the 75th spot last year and I have no idea why it has suddenly gone up. Is there growing interest concerning diversity in our part of the world? It would certainly be understandable, but still, talk about dramatic change.

My 4th most popular entry so far this year is this comical one called:ย The Degenerate West?ย It has gone up from the 13th spot last year.

My 7th most popular entry so far this year was my review of “Empire of Dust” before I decided to put it to private. If I had not it would probably have been up there in the Top. 5.

Unless I’m being trolled big time (by some bored tech guy or something ๐Ÿ˜›) I’m assuming that this growing interest in Western Degeneracy and sudden Demographic Change is organic. There was also a sudden interest in my articles about the increase in Acid Attacks in the UK at one point last year….

Judging from what I wrote in the beginning of this long entry it is obvious that existence is so utterly horrid that people yearn for nothing but distractions. I find it interesting to write about the world and review/analyse the content of books, but I don’t really think that this has a general appeal. In fact it might just make people depressed. When writing about anything political it is probably good to speak from a very populist place rather than posting a sour post like this:ย When People Can Not Process What They Are Reading., which got a total of nine views last year and is just one step removed from echoing French President Macron’s epic statement along the lines of “people just don’t understand me – I need an interpreter so that I can communicate with real people.”

I’ve also come to understand that my praise of “people mining” meaning: “looking for the best people with the highest brain-power and potential, searching for these characters wherever they may hide;” was slightly ill-informed. I take it back. The Western world has been thinking itself into a coma and this can be credited to the sort of high-performing individuals I alluded to in my “Jupiterian” entry. Maybe it is better to deal with people who don’t think themselves into absurdity but simply act on their gut-feeling and their instincts. It certainly seems like Western experts are thinking and writing themselves and everyone else into total oblivion. It will not be the debaters, writers and/or thinkers who save the West; inventors can find ways to salvage our MicroPlastic Issue and strategists can find a way to protect and defend Western civilisation from itself.

The “experts” will be too busy getting lost inside their own heads to save anything, and will continue to promote ideas that in theory make sense until you plot in the very annoying “human factor,” that for some strange reason always seem to ruin everything.

Would it be far-fetched to suggest that DNA tampering might not improve things either? Probably not; I’m willing to bet that robot-humans would act silly too. Such as writing entries this long. People apparently prefer short entries that get to some sort of point.

And people like positive characters too, just think about all of these positive public speakers (*cough*cough*who are totally not running scams* cough*cough*) who are promising people far and wide that they can change their lives for the better! All you have to do is to give these people your email address or follow them on social media and they’ll share their formula for success! All they post are smiley pictures, everything is cheerful and upbeat, there is no end!

Anyway – Berit-bot is logging out for tonight. This entry is now 3.820 words long. Maybe I will blog about normal-things from now on. How boring. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

 

The Happy Saga!

Sticky

The glorious saga of me charting and selling music is still going strong ๐Ÿ™‚ After weeks of charting on Amazon.com with my 2014 release “2 Guitars – The Classical Crossover Album” I’m back in the top 10 once again! As I’ve already said in previous blog posts it has been going in and out of the charts since its release in late 2014, being in the top 5 countless times, even hitting nr.1 ๐Ÿ™‚

It makes me VERY HAPPY to see how popular this idea is and I’m looking very much forward to releasing new material!

My manager and I were able to create a great buzz when I was doing Heavy Metal in the beginning of my career, we scratched our heads a bit since the music industry wasn’t really catching on to what we did, it didn’t really make much sense when you think about how much Metal bands normally struggle and how long it takes for these acts to break even when given the opportunity to release their material on a label! I successfully crossed over in late 2013 into classical music and have proven my worth continuously from my 1st single release to my full length album. I was dealing with a Major Label in 2016 working on something very exciting and classical related, but sadly became ill and lost over a year of my life to poor health. It therefore makes me extra happy to see that my release is still hanging in there for weeks at a time and that my latest video on YouTube passed 50k views yesterday!

It proves that we are doing something very right in an age where people complain about not selling records. Selling physical records was never an issue for me, or it hasn’t been to date. I feel very optimistic about the future when I see my numbers despite having a limited reach on my Facebook. That social media platform in particular used to be very important to me, and I think it is a great shame that you are being put in the position of “follower blackmail” as the social media giant keep on tightening its grip. It’s a shame for small, independent businesses and “free thinkers.”

It is good news however to see that my latest video could get good views so quickly without any mainstream media exposure; I’m grateful that Truth In Shredding gave me a mention and thank them for that, now I’m waiting to see if any of the big guys will actually catch on to this. The meme isn’t dying, at least not for now.

I’m looking forward to releasing new music! What I will release next will be original material, for the simple reason that I’ve been ill for a while and wanted to come back to music doing something that was a bit lighter, the second that I’m done with my 3rd album I will get back to classical!

Thanks again to those of you who pay for my work and keep an eye on what I’m doing! If you want to support my creative endeavours and hear new music as well, then please check out my Patreon ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks a million! โค

Not that long ago I blogged about my album hanging in the charts once again, even jumping up, well now my fans decided that the album deserved to be in the top spot once again! For all I know maybe it went to Nr.1, because I haven’t really been checking the charts since my last long joyous outburst on here! – Actually now that I think of it I did see that it had jumped up to 25, but forgot to post about it! Turns out I didn’t have to promote it because it went up even further anyway! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Wo-ho wo-ho wo-ho wo-ho!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

I was super stoked when it initially charted pretty low in Germany, the USA, and whatnot, during the release week in 2014, then I nearly died when it went up to Nr.1 in early 2015, I don’t know what to say anymore because this thing just keeps on charting in various categories as well ๐Ÿ˜€ Zombie album deluxe – I’m so glad!!!!!

Yesterday before I went to bed I saw that myย classical albumย had jumped up on the Amazon Bestseller chart after falling down. On the 22nd it was down on 44, yesterday it was up on 29, and now it had gone up to 27! That is really cool since albums usually don’t chart that long for independent artists! Earlier this year it was hanging in there for over 2 weeks on the chart, and without any new videos or anything! I clearly have to release more classical recordings! But first I’m going to put out a whole bunch of original material that I feel very strongly about! ๐Ÿ˜› Make sure that you check out my Rock’n’Roll music as well ๐Ÿ˜›

Thanks again to all these Americans who buy my music!!! The U.S.A. have always been my nr.1 country when it comes to fans, followers & buyers! โค Thanks a million & God Bless!!!!!

Lent for the 1st time.

Sticky

Sometime after lent had commenced I decided that maybe I ought to try it, not that I was aware of when it started exactly, as the local church is somewhat neglected by the church authorities and don’t even have a service every Sunday; but that’s ok, the most important thing is that the church hasn’t been closed and is still standing strong, open at all times, after all these years. (It’s Norman and an absolute beauty).

Lent was interesting as it functions like a habit-breaker, I was not entirely successful but at least I gave it a go and tried my best. The biblical reason for this strange “celebration” is that Jesus was wandering around in the desert for a while and withstood temptation from the Devil ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I personally have not reached this section of the Bible as I’m still working my way through the Old Testament; I’ve largely been a protestant-in-name-only, (or secular protestant) my entire life, gradually turning to Christianity over the last few years. So lent was pretty new to me (just like attending Holy Communion), but a valuable lesson nonetheless.

The Church of England is struggling greatly; they don’t have enough funds to look after England’s numerous and beautiful places of worship, and most people who I’ve run into complain about dwindling numbers when it comes to attendance.

It is rather sad since England is an Anglican country and so far I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed whatever services I’ve come to; I also heard complaints about general low attendance over in Norway last time I was there. There also seem to be many women who take it upon themselves to keep the faith alive by becoming priests.

The Old Testament is proving a very interesting read as it illustrates how various tribes interact with one another; how everyone travels to Israel to shower the Jews with gifts and praise when they are strong and under tough leadership, while everyone tries to take advantage, looting and conquering the Jews once they are seen as weak! The work is repetitive, as I’ve also written in the very looooong review that I’m writing about it; it is hard to read due to the fact that it was not written to be a page turner. Names of entire Jewish families are listed over and over and over again, which certainly makes for tiresome reading. I therefore decided to check out “The Lion Encyclopaedia of Jesus.,” just to get a more “in-depth” introduction to Jesus; in comparison to what little I already knew.

If you feel like helping persecuted Christians then please read this: “Persecuted Christians around the World.”ย If you live in England then maybe this will be of interest: “The Vulnerability of the Poor & Our Shared Cultural Heritage.” Here are some interesting petitions to check out:ย Petitions To Sign & Share.

When You Think You Are Healthy ….

Sticky

Yes; I’ve written about the problematic nature of micro plastics and thought to myself that I would try to separate myself from this carcinogenic heresy.

Apparently this is easier said than done as plastic permeates all aspects of our convenient, civilised, societies. The picture on top of this entry perfectly illustrates the macabre comedy of the situation: behold a gluten-free, tree-hugger-friendly, lactose-free, over-prized, politically-correct loaf, wrapped in *drum roll* plastic. :/

I guess I’ve realised that the only way to fight this insidious invention is to grow your own vegetables, hunt game, and/or keep farm animals, while making every meal from scratch. Considering how quickly it is possible to devour cheese and crackers, sandwiches or chips for an instance, I don’t even want to think about the amount of work that would go into such an endeavour.

Respect to our ancestors who actually had 6-7 kids on average, while running households without any of our modern appliances, not to forget looking after the farm while the man was out fighting whomever.

Yes our societies are convenient, but this convenience is creepy. Now that I’ve been made aware of that plastics leak into our food and water; I have a hard time not noticing it. Our parents did not grow up with it the same way we Millennials have done, so I wonder what people will say about the plastic obsession in the future and whether or not it will all be banned. :/

 

Ancient Greek Myths – The Universe, The Gods, And Mortals told by Jean-Pierre Vernant.

Sticky

Those who’ve experienced the elementary education offered in Southern European countries can consider themselves lucky, as you really get an introduction to the “Western Civilisation” perspective, rather than the post-modern version void of “the classics.” I remember how we had several volumes of history books for each school year, thick books as well, that offered way more than what my peers and relatives were presented with up North. I recall that the Italian public school system was four years ahead the Norwegian one which is quite something to think about. Even though that was the case there was little that was given away when it came to WW2 and these type of things, probably because of Italy’s role, I can only assume.

If you find yourself in a similar situation to mine, there will be a need for a brush up at one point or the other, which is precisely why I decided to check out the Greek Myths once again.

Some of it made me remember, some of it was new. It was an interesting read and a reminder of how people find new ways to express the same ideas and concepts. The idea of a death ray, for example, is nothing new, as “War of The Worlds” echoes the evil Cyclops who can grill you with their eye, the same can be said of Maleficent from ย “The Sleeping Beauty” , which brings to mind the story of the Golden Apple, thrown into the midst of a party by a disgruntled entity who was not invited, (indirectly or directly depending on how you want to look at it,) starting or laying the foundation for the Trojan War.

Jean-Pierre Vernant is an extremely gifted writer, the preface was stellar and the main text was impossible to put down. I would highly recommend this work!

It is especially interesting to notice how women are being portrayed. There is this popular myth out there that Christianity was created to oppress women in particular, like a vicious plot, since women were empowered under paganism. However, it certainly doesn’t come across as such, when reading how “sexist” the Greek Myths are/were; with the first woman being practically blamed for everything, much like Eve in Christianity. I have not read the Norse Myths yet, but female characters are apparently severely sidelined with male entities of war taking centre stage. This is of course very interesting when thinking about modern narratives…..I’m assuming that our current age of egalitarianism is unprecedented; at least that is the impression I have as of now; but I might come across something that will change my mind in the future.

Here are some cool quotes from the work; as always: I choose to highlight what I consider to be of interest, it is always best to read the original text in its entirety….

How women are described in Greek Mythology.

“Now, the stories show this Pandora, like her whole genos-the whole “race” of feminine women who descended from her – with a particular characteristic: She is always dissatisfied, demanding, self-indulgent. She is never content with what there is; she wants to be sated, surfeited.”

“…Pandora has a voracious appetite, she never stops eating, she must always be sitting at the table … But any household with a woman in it will develop that insatiable voracious hunger. In this sense the situation is similar to what occurs in beehives …”

“Similarly in the human households, on one hand there are the men, who sweat over the fields, break their backs digging the furrows, tend the grain and then gather it; and on the other hand, inside the houses sit the women who – like the drones – ย  swallow up the harvest.”

“Not only does she swallow up and exhaust all the resources, but that is precisely a woman’s main reason for seducing a man: What she’s after is the barn … she sings the young bachelor her big seduction aria because she actually has her eye on the grain stores. And every man – like Epimetheus before them, all agog, transfixed by her looks – every man falls captive.”

“Indeed, woman, the wife, is a fire burning up her husband constantly, day after day, desiccating him and making him old before his time.”

“If a man marries, his life will pretty certainly be hell, unless he happens on a very good wife, which is extremely rare. Conjugal life is thus and inferno – misery after misery. On the other hand, if a man does not marry, his life could be a happy one: He would have his fill of everything, he would never lack for anything – but at his death, who will get his accumulated wealth? It will be scattered, into the hands of relatives for whom he has no particular affection. If he marries it is a catastrophe, and if he doesn’t, it’s another kind of catastrophe. Woman is two different things at once: She is the paunch, the belly devouring everything her husband laboriously gathered at the cost of his effort, his toil, his fatigue; but that belly is also the only one that can produce the thing that extends a man’s life – a child.”

The greatest threat to men:

“Throughout the long journey to follow, at every moment, behind all Odysseus’s adventures with his companions, this forgetting – the erasure of any memory of the homeland, any desire to return to it – forgetting is the constant danger, the evil.”

How the mob is described in Greek Mythology.

“Men make too much racket. There is the ethereal, silent realm where the gods withdraw to think and gaze upon one another, and then there are these humans, jumping about and agitating, shouting themselves hoarse with quarreling. So from the gods’ standpoint, a good war every now and then solves the problem: back to peace and quiet.”

“… the gods shift over to men the responsibility for decisions they shy from, the same way they sent them the misfortunes or baleful fates they wanted to avoid for themselves.”

How the Greeks identified gender….

“He sees some fifty girls there; Achilles does not stand out among them. Odysseus opens his sack and displays cloth and needlework, clips and jewels, and forty-nine of the girls crowd around to exclaim over his trinkets. But one of them hangs back, indifferent.

Odysseus then takes out a dagger, and that pretty little girl lunges for it. Outside the walls a battle trumpet blares: panic in the women’s quarters, the forty-nine girls dart away with their bits of frippery, while just one – with a dagger in hand – heads for the marching music.

Odysseus has unmasked Achilles just as Nestor unmasked Odysseus – and Achilles in turn is ready to go to war.”

“Identitarians” ย according to the Greeks:

” … Those who embodied the unconditional attachment to the unchanging, who proclaimed the need to preserve traditional values against whatever is other from themselves, against whatever questions them or forces them to see themselves differently – these “identitarians,” the Greek citizens confident of their superiority – are the very ones who topple over into absolute otherness, into horror, into the monstrous.”

Just like the Vikings described men of the East as effeminate, well so did the Greeks.

” … Pentheus harbours the idea that a monarch’s role is to uphold a hierarchical system in which men take their proper place, women stay at home, foreigners are not let in, and Asia – the East – is considered to be populated by effeminate folk in the habit of obeying a tyrant’s orders, whereas Greece is populated by free men.”

How feminists are described in the Greek Myths…

” His mother snatches up her son’s severed head, sticks it on the tip of a thyrsus, and marches about in delight with the thing, which in her delirium she imagines to be the head of a young lion or bull impaled on the end of her pike. … she boasts of having been hunting with the men and like a man, of showing herself to be even better at hunting than they. With that mob of demented, blood-spattered women, Agave goes over to Dionysus, who is still garbed as a priest.”

How Warriors are described by the Greeks:

” Cadmus does as instructed … sows the dragon’s teeth. Hardly has he finished than from each tooth springs up a warrior – already full grown and armed in military gear, with helmet, shield, sword, lance, leg guards, and breastplate. Once up and out of the ground, they eye one another with contempt, snarl, and hurl challenges the way men do who live for slaughter, warfare, and belligerent violence – soldiers through and through. Cadmus understands that they could easily turn on him.”

When offered immortality Odysseus turns it down, since he values his family way more, not evenย his encounter with Achilles can change his mind:

“Odysseus had visited the land of the dead; there among the spectres he had heard Achilles say how dreadful it is to be dead, how this phantom with no life or consciousness that a person becomes – this nameless shade – is the very worst future a man can imagine. And now, after his long journey and all his ordeals, Calypso offers him the chance to be immortal and to stay forever young, no longer to fear death and old age.”

“What Achilles says in The Odyssey is the opposite of what The Iliad proclaimed: that Achilles had the choice between a short, glorious life and a long life without glory, and he had never hesitated or doubted for a moment: He would choose a glorious life and heroic death in the flower of youth, because the glory of a short life ending in a fine death was worth far more than anything else. Now he says exactly the opposite: Once a man dies, given the choice he would rather be a poor louse-ridden peasant alive in the most benighted backwater of Greece than great Achilles in the world of the dead.”

What Odysseus sees when he visits death:

“They form a vague mass of beings who used to be individual persons but can no longer be distinguished. From that mass swarming past him there rises a terrifying, unidentified sound. They have no name, they do not speak; it is chaotic noise.”

The island of the sun god.

“The place does belong to the sun, that all-seeing eye.”

Sirens at work:

“But meanwhile, even as these beauties are revealing the Truth with a capital T … their island is ringed by a mass of corpses, flesh decomposing in the hot sun on the beach. These are the bodies of all the men who succumbed to the Sirens’ call and died. … What they say to Odysseus is in a sense what will be said of him when he no longer exists, when he will have crossed the frontier between the world of light and that of shadows, …”

 

My Album Is Still Charting after over 2 weeks on the Amazon charts! :) Thanks!

Sticky

On the 28th of January I was overjoyed when I saw that my classical album had hit the bestseller list once again, both in classical romantic and easy listening! It peaked on #2 from what I could see, but since the charts are updated every hour, it can easily be missed if it goes to #1, unless you stalk your own releases.

My album has continuously been charting since its release in December 2014, which makes me extremely happy! Usually a release will experience sales when you as an artist receive press exposure, play gigs and release new videos. So the fact that the album keeps on charting without any press buzz at the moment, gigs (I’ve been ill for a year) or new videos is crazy! In 2016 I also experienced that my music video for Paganini Cap. 24, went viral for the 2nd time, after a guitar site in Mexico posted it on their Facebook.

Whenever people come across my work and it is shared it is obvious that there is great interest for it! I’m looking forward to release new music. Right now I’m happy to be recording again! Thanks a lot to those who pay for my work and let other people know about what I do! As an independent artist I really appreciate all support! If you want to read about my Major Label experience in 2016 (the secret project) + my health (why I’ve been “gone”) you can read about that on my website right here:ย Commandermusic

Thanks again to those who support what I do! Make sure that you check out my Amazon bestseller books and previous releases on my website. Everything can be found there. โค

A Cool Video From The G7.

This is a very interesting ย watch, especially when considering how the U.S.A is constantly being portrayed as the villainous hegemon. I started to doubt this narrative when I saw how much the U.S.A was struggling internally for myself, which is of course something that a lot of European critics will never see. It is interesting to note how opinionated people can be about a country they’ve never even been to … likewise it is interesting to listen to real witness accounts from people who’ve actually worked in Africa, Asia and the Middle East rather than experts who glorify cultures and situations they know nothing about….

I’m extremely happy to see that there is a real Renaissance effort in place because the U.S.A. sorely needs it. Hopefully it will inspire Europe to follow suit. One can hope. I saw a tweet yesterday from a fellow show-biz character who said that Norway needs a trip to the garage, my reply was that the whole west needs it asap. I don’t see isolated issues, I see a continental issue over here and an overall degenerate culture-war that is equally damaging for the U.S.A. as it is for countries and nations over here.

Last year when I decided to actually cast my vote for the first time, out of desperation quite frankly due to how things are changing in Europe, I decided to read a little and figure out what I was casting my vote for. It opened my eyes a bit to the complexity and magnitude of what needs to be addressed when engaged in National management… Migration is quite frankly just one piece in a giant tapestry of issues, but it is the issue that is the most visible to the general population due to exposure and due to brands, magazines and entertainment companies moving together in a synchronised fashion to popularise new values and a new Europe. If you hate and loathe the change, you’ll be given new reasons to be upset every single day. It makes me happy to see that the U.S.A. at least are getting back on their feet, now I’m wondering when Hollywood will follow suit and create patriotic content that can lift the American spirit rather than working against the re-construction. (A cool article to check out).

From the moment I started out on MySpace in 2008, it has been the support of my fans that has helped me build my music career, as an independent artist. From witnessing the very first independent radios playing my songs, via more and more printed press in major magazines all over the world, to appearances on major TV shows (including being a judge on โ€œBattle of the Starsโ€ in 2015 and 2017) to having a number 1 album on Amazon.ย  It has been an exciting journey and my fans have been a crucial part of every step. I never set out to be a โ€œsuper guitarist,โ€ since the guitar was only a tool I needed for songwriting, when I started out. Somewhere along the way I got hooked on playing guitar, and before I knew it I saw myself featured as โ€œ1 of 10 modern guitar godsโ€ in theโ€ฆ
