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!

A Poem by Mak Dizdar Translated to Swedish and English

One of my favorite poems is Slovo o Čovjeku by Mak Dizdar. It really sums up existentialism, Zen and the nature of being a human - while at the same time filling me with the right kind of spirit and insight. Here is the poem translated by me to Swedish and English. At the end of ...

Sci-Fi Film ‘Terminus’ Includes UFO’, Men in Black, Nuclear War and More

Monday, September 26, 2016 0 , , , , Permalink

This film has received very bad ratings on IMDB and that's probably because it hints at many references people don't get. Things that make an decent film more relative to our current world happenings than just being a decent film. Terminus plays out itself during a time when USA and its allies are occupying Iran with Russian ...

Your Vote Matters

There are many people whom I respect and whose values I regard highly but on one issue I don't agree with. That is voting and that it is useless. They say it doesn't matter. Here are my arguments on why it matters and why voting is like breathing, you won't come around it but only ...
