I’ve started a Patreon and have just published a video where Patrons get a preview of what I’m working on!
I’m pretty excited about my latest artistic pursuit and hope that my fans and followers will check it out and spread the word.
The best way that you can support me as an artist is by signing up to my Patreon page (Right Here) and spread the word; also make sure that you check out all of my previous releases if you haven’t already.
My 1st blog book is also in the works; it will include selected entries from my 1st two years of blogging on this site; it will be released as an eBook.
Thanks a lot for the support!
The mighty, unsinkable Titanic hit an iceberg on the 14th of April, this date also happens to be my birthday!
My day was off to an ideal start as I hung out in the local town with some really great people! I truly enjoyed my night out! This morning though I was woken up by my family standing by my bed singing … so it’s good that I was drinking responsibly … ufff … it sucks to be hangover … not only is it unhealthy, unflattering, painful and everything in between, it is not particularly classy either if you are a woman/girl … it’s so much nicer to just have some pints and chill out. Not that I was ever a heavy drinker nor a regular one either, in fact anything but. I always felt strange as a teenager being the only one turning down weed, cigarettes, never trying drugs of any kind and/or only drinking occasionally. It takes guts to be honest if you really don’t like the taste of liquor for example in a culture where “not drinking” instantly labels you as “extremely awkward.” I guess the point I’m trying to make is that it is preferable to either have no relationship to alcohol or a healthy, moderate one, something that isn’t really promoted in a way, culturally, if you think about it…….
Today I received one of the coolest gifts anyone has ever gotten me! A typewriter, and not any old type writer either. It is light, comes in a sleek 50’s bag and doesn’t make much noise either. It is an Olivetti Lettera 22 !!! A proper vintage classic, in fact an iconic modern artefact :):):):)
It’s absolutely fascinating to have an “acoustic” machine, to be able to write without a shining screen, without constant notifications popping up all over the place, having “instant print,” not to mention the fact that there is no spell check of any kind. This puts a lot of pressure on the writer as you really need to know your “stuff,” which is particularly hard if you are dealing with another language 😉
I love the font on my typewriter as well. It is precisely the kind that I’ve enjoyed using when writing the books that I’ve been working on lately.
Fascinating to sit and write on “old-fashioned-machinery,” I’m just intrigued by the whole technical aspect of it. Think how amazing it is what human beings are capable of! It is truly magnificent.
I started working on two separate stories instantly and hope to be very productive with my typer. That’s a thing as well: no one can hack you at all whatsoever if you are creating “acoustically,” interesting how “old gadgets” seem more enchanting than new ones!
It’s a good idea to detach oneself from the “enslavement” of the smart phone. Outsourcing phone numbers, addresses and simple maths to your handy companion is not good for the memory!
Besides gushing over my gift and wonderful flowers I had a great day, writing, hanging out and eating amazing food.
My lovely sister made a fantastic yule log all by herself. It looked fantastic with lights and the whole shebang. My mother cooked up a lovely feast for us all 🙂 She is an amazing cook!
Tomorrow I’ll be getting ready for something as abstract as a holiday :O Who would have thought? This time I’m actually heading someplace warm as well, so prepare for Instagram pictures hash-tagged with “the south.”
Needless to say there’s been a lot that has been blog worthy as of late, lots and lots of information, news, etc; Such as benefit fraud in the UK, young UK people who are struggling so much that they need assistance from organisations that usually help people in Africa, genuine homeless kids in the UK who are being taken advantage of and the overall glorification of the plight of the overworked in the USA.
I’ve received a lot of hits on my skin care entries over the last weeks so I was wondering if the time had come to do another blog entry for female readers again, specifically, addressing women’s/girl’s issues. In terms of big politics, which is always intriguing … the right divided itself over Trump’s strike in Syria, raising the question in my brother’s mind of “who are really the people?” It is an interesting question worth pondering … all I see are differing opinions and denominations regardless of which political platform that is the “umbrella organisation.” Not much new-information is needed for people to part in terms of what they support and believe in, even when the core principles might be the same.
There was a terrorist attack in Sweden, which oddly left the nation shocked … there was an attack in Russia, that no one in the western world seemed to care much about, then there were horrible attacks on Christian churches and worshippers of the faith in Egypt … the whole “flag filter” thing seems to have disappeared? I guess there was too much turbulence … it is probably good to hush things down as much as possible I assume … Millennials are apparently more conservative than previous generations, the government are cracking down on Alt-righters, Shia “the flag waver” is not doing particularly well in the UK with his latest movie and so on and so on and so on.
So much to read … so much to write … so little time !!!!!
I came across some cool artwork a while back….I like this: Question Everything.
And here there are some other pics, you guys might find interesting: Political Art
There are many ways in which pictures like this can be discussed. I just find it interesting with art that makes you think 🙂
ps. came across this as well → Punch
Just a quick note to the people who have subscribed to my blog 😉 A new music video will be released today on My YouTube 😉
The song was first written back in 2007, inspired by John Dickie’s book about Cosa Nostra.
I made a new arrangement and re-recorded the song last year to include it as a bonus track on my second album which was released in April this year 😉
I hope that you guys will enjoy it and help me share it!!! \m/ ❤ \m/ ❤ \m/
Yes, you read that right. A while back my brother suggested that I should get myself a video blog, so off I went and made a couple of episodes, thinking to myself that it would be very easy.
People liked the blogs, but I was amazed at how time-consuming it actually was, so the video blog idea was abandoned for a while. However after blogging here on wordpress since last year, I felt like it would be cool to start vlogging again. This time I’ll commit myself to one episode pr.month and I’ll let my subscribers run the show a bit, by letting their questions etc, decide what the next episode should be about.
I will prefer if the blogs don’t contain live music, as it takes time to actually sync a recording with your fingers if you record it properly. It took me quite some attempts to shoot my latest video actually, as I first shot it with webcam, and my manager hated that my bed was visible behind me ( also there was some strange sync-issues going on with the sound :/), so then I shot it a second time in another room, but the lighting was horrible and half my head was missing 😛 Then I shot it a last time, thinking to myself, ok…how hard can this really be?
Now after uploading my “songwriting” blog I realise that the acoustics make the room “unsuitable” for vlogs/talking unless I get a microphone 😛 So much for that!
You can still hear what I’m saying though, so please check out my songwriting blog and feel free to come with suggestions in the comment section for what my next episode should be about :):)
