‘An Insignificant Man’ in the Animal Farm

As a documentary film, An Insignificant Man delivers a very rich, dramatic and in parts tragic portrayal of a political movement in India. Offering a great insight into the process of idealism being filtered through politics. When compromises advance some people and some ideas, while leaving behind others. At the center is Arvind Kejriwal who was followed ...

Mostar Aircraft Hangar

I visited the former secret aircraft hangar outside of Mostar in Gojnice. It's abandoned and for me the experience was that of an magnificent echo chamber. There are several objects like these in Bosnia, abandoned and remnants of the former Yugoslavian army. Enormously expensive as they were most are not in use now - like the ...

Yugoslavian Space Program – An Electronic Compilation Gem, or More if You Want

This compilation album is a fraction of the electronic music made in former (or current day imaginative) Yugoslavia. The album is rooted in the dreamy nostalgic visions and ideas that old and young x-yuggies have about what Yugoslavia could have been, could have become - not what it was or ended up in. One has ...

‘Häxan’ by Dungen

In August of 2014 I saw Dungen perform an amazing live music set to the silent animated film The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926). The show left everyone yearning for more, as the concert was so present, dynamic and rich in good psych vibes - and all Dungen lovers got the best out of the band instrumentally. ...

Late November, Early December in Mostar

Since we arrived in Mostar I've been busy getting practical things done. The weather has been really good, a late week in November was sunny with 20 C during the day, which we fully enjoyed. But even after that, the temperature is of a milder winter, the skies are beautiful and the sun shines often. ...

Julian Jay Savarin & Great Progressive Rock

I want to keep an artists name alive in this post, it's Julian Jay Savarin. Who was a Dominican-British musician and released two amazing psychedelic rock albums and besides that also wrote some sci-fi books. He came to the UK in 1962 and studied history and served in the Royal Air Force. But there's really nothing ...

Lerin / Hystad release ‘Creatures of the Deep’

A favorite musical duo, actually a married couple, called Lerin/Hystad have released fine music and are hot up with a new album called Creatures of the Deep. The music is a skeletonian mix of elecetronic music with happy easy going tight drums, a kind of cozy lo-fi blip-blop intellectual background music. I mean background music in a ...

Cary Grace Live

The past month I got the chance to see and hear one of my favorite artists live, Cary Grace (interview with her). She's just released a live album called The Uffculme Variations and posted a fantastic live concert excerpt from earlier in May this year. Hopefully there is more she'll post on YouTube from that May concert. ...

My Thoughts on Leonardo DiCaprio’s ‘Before the Flood’

I saw Leonardo Di Caprio’s documentary for National Geographic called Before the Flood. All in all the message is good. I’m not in the denial camp nor the global change hysteria camp. The documentary brings up good points but the political tone is obvious, especially when increasing taxes on undesired behaviour is promoted - and ...

Leaving Öland

It’s soon time for us to leave Öland and head down to south Europe.   https://youtu.be/N7jf72oOTPA     The forest nymph is not that of a spectacular person.   Trollskogen.     When I go grocery shopping everything and everyone goes into the cart.   Autumn overload.   This robot vacuum cleaner has indeed made out lives easier.   Global fussball OK!
