My Fake Magazine of LIfe in Sweden – by Scott Ritcher, American publisher of a real magazine called K Composite
I thought it was a MacBook Pro, but it was a MacBook Air in disguise. The mustache made it look more powerful. Like Stalin.
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.
I decided I’d rather have a bigger desk than a kitchen door.
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.

This name always stood out to me in a country where they don’t use dollars. I went there for the first time this weekend. They actually accepted greenbacks..." READ »
