The scaffolding across the street has completely surrounded the building and is now going over the top.

This is a sequel to my previous action-packed report: Scaffolding.

Is that a MacBook Pro?

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

I thought it was a MacBook Pro, but it was a MacBook Air in disguise. The mustache made it look more powerful. Like Stalin.

Rebuilding the iPhoto library was never cozier

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Here’s cozy evening scene at the kitchen “table” (a board on top of a box) with a view out the window. I’m taking a few steps to speed things up in my iPhoto library of 50,000+ images that date back more than ten years.

In the studio

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Saturday night I spent having some fun in the recording studio with my friends Iida Hellström (The Sorted) and Erik Welén (Torpedo, Tiger Lou).

We were working on a recording of an old song by Iida’s band, based on a reworking of it I recently put together. Erik can be seen playing a bass borrowed from one of my favorite Swedish bands Hello Saferide.

Our project doesn’t have name or even a plan, but it was fun to be in the studio again and to make some music.

Caption this photo

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

1: Shit. Do all of these have alarm tags on them?

2: Why are we leaving notes for criminals on specific items? Everybody knows you might get caught if you steal things, so does this sticker mean “run faster because they’re gonna know you took something”?

3: Why are razor blades so damn expensive in the first place? Yeah, I know the Gillette story – give away the razors and make your money on the blades – but this is worse than printer ink.

4: I’m not gonna buy these, I mean the last think I want is another alarm going off in the morning.

5: I’d like to speak with the manager, please. I tried to steal this memory card which was clearly not labeled as having an alarm tag, then the sirens went off and I had to act like I was just looking at those shitty wreaths and i didn’t realize I was so close to the door.
