Snuggling With the Enemy

My Fake Magazine of LIfe in Sweden – by Scott Ritcher, American publisher of a real magazine called K Composite

All in one lifetime

All in one lifetime: member of the Teamsters and the Swedish Journalists’ Union.

Oh, and one time I bought Claire Danes a bourbon and Coke.

And I ran for senate in Kentucky. And this other time I was a newspaper photographer in a film that was nominated for Best Picture.

Oh I almost forgot about the time Annika Norlin looked at me.

Wait, did I mention that I saw Steve Jobs in 2003 and his assistant stopped me from showing him my Apple tattoo? Right. That.

All in one lifetime.

And I played over 100 shows in Europe with my band. Yep.

And when I was a kid I met Robert Crippen, commander of the first Space Shuttle flight.

And Mr T.

And I saw Nirvana in concert.

And Liberace.

And Jerry Lee Lewis five times.

And Johnny Cash twice.

Yeah, so the point is, I’m in the Swedish Journalists’ Union now.
