Sorry I've been MIA. Finally got a decent internet connection today, so posting should go back to normal now (because I was oh so constistent before, y' know).

Christmas was alright. Now it's New Year's tomorrow and I thought an end of year quiz was in its place. Oh, it's also my birthday tomorrow. The big 21. Yay me, I guess, though I feel like birthdays are way overrated. Anywho! I'll get to it.

Describe 2008 with 3 words:
Changes, growing up (that's almost one word), rollercoaster.
Where did you travel to in 2008:
I went to Brussels in April(?) I think it was.
Have you already made plans for travelling in 2009 - and if yes, where to?
No definite plans. But I want to go to London. Or New York. One or the other.
Best book you read in 2008?
I don't know, I read a lot. I love the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, but I can't pick between the 3 ones (out of, I think, 5) I've read.
Best film you saw in 2008?
Again, I don't really remember. I'm 99 % sure there are a bunch of smaller films I've loved much more than the ones I can think of now, which are only the blockbusters. The Dark Knight, Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder. All very entertaining movies, but not in the OMG I LOVE THIS MOVIE AND WANT TO MARRY IT-way. I reallyreally loved Wall-E, though. LOVED.
What were you doing at new years eve last year at 23.59?
Holding hands standing on a couch.
How are you gonna celebrate new years this year?
With one very good friend and 14 of her friends, whom are all strangers to me. Should be fun though, I love meeting new people.
What are you looking forward to in 2009?
To getting a(nother) place in CPH, preferably a dorm room or a shared apartment with a friend. And getting my economy under control.
What are you NOT looking forward to in 2009?
Exams. Bah.
Are you planning on having any kids in 2009?
Hahahaha, noo.

Happy new years!

'Tis The Season.

I don't have Internet at the moment, leading to the inactivity around here. But, at least the missing Christmas spirit has come over me! I even put up some Christmas decorations at my place (drunkenly grabbed from a nearby public Christmas tree one night, but whatever).

Visuals and audio that finally brought this about:





Belle and Sebastian - Santa Claus, Go Straight To The Ghetto
The Kinks - Father Christmas
The Raveonettes - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
Ryan Adams - Hey Parker, It's Christmas
The Wombats - Is This Christmas?
(via box.net)

I furthermore recommend The Raveonettes - Wishing You A Rave Christmas EP and Belle and Sebastian - Peel Christmas Party.

Last Christmas.

I have zero Christmas spirit this year. With all the exams papers due, the studying for finals, and the very sad, rainy weather, well.... I'm just not in the mood.

I haven't even been listening to Christmas music, which is something I usually enjoy during December. The only one's I've been listening to are the ones I listen to all year round - the three The Killers Christmas singles. Even Joseph has sort of grown on me, but I still don't love it as much as the two earlier ones.

But I digress. I wanted to share the only other Christmas song I've listened to this December. The original is a classic but very easy to grow tired of. This version is just perfect.

Going Underground.....

The Delanies

Sha La Las

Stengade30, 04.12.2008.

The Delanies were good. Sha La Las were.... Wasted (and by that, somewhat entertaining).

Joseph, Better You Than Me.

And here it is. The Killers, Elton John, and Neil Tennant - Joseph, Better You Than Me.

Haven't got much to say about this yet. I've listened to it about 10 times and I've still not decided what I really think about it. Which tells me it isn't impressing.

I miss the sense of humor from A Great Big Sled and Don't Shoot Me Santa.

Best Of.... This Weekend.

I don't have words do describe this weekend. It was just fucking brilliant. Pictures instead.



Breaking Lines.

The Pastels - Breaking Lines MP3 (box.net)

I feel very anti-Christmas this first day of December. Anyone know when the new The Killers Christmas single is coming out this year? For the last few years those have been the only Christmas songs I've actually enjoyed.

I've been extremely productive this morning. I sleep like hell at the moment but actually managed to get 5 hours of blissful rest last night. Woke up at around 8AM and stared at the sun rising from below the rooftops (sometimes living on the 4th floor with windows facing east is quite the treat). Then decided to actually do something with my day, contrasting to yesterday's skipping class and doing jack shit.

So before noon I've done all the dishes I could find, my flatmates' included. I've done laundry enough to last me a week, cleaned out my cabinet in the kitchen, and thrown out nasty old milk from the fridge. All that crap you usually avoid. Now all I need is to fold up all the clean clothes currently occupying my chair. Which, no shit, is something I actually enjoy doing.

Otherwise... It's only Tuesday and I'm already longing for the weekend.

Last night was a blast. Saw people I haven't seen in ages and spoke with a LOT of strangers. I love talking to strangers. They have no idea who you are, and you'll never see them again. You can be whoever you want to be.

The first snow came yesterday. I have no idea why but it made me all happy and excited for winter. With the fresh air and bitter cold. The city is beautiful. Copenhagen, je t'aime!

Tonight I'm going here with an old friend whom I haven't seen in months. I'm excited.

What's My Age Again?

This is amazing.

Apparently the plane crash Travis Barker was involved in back in mid-September was good for something. Apparantly it's brought Travis and Mark Hoppus back to talking to Tom Delonge. Apparantly, they've made up.

I don't have the words to explain what blink-182 meant to me when I was younger. I hardly ever listen to it anymore but I can't deny the influence it had on me. I can't explain it either, but you know. I really didn't listen to that much else for years. It's sounds so fucking corny but it brought me through some tough times. It reminds me of the first few times drunk at 13. Of jumping around like maniacs with friends. Of my first boyfriend and the first break-up. It's like the soundtrack to my early teen years.

And this sort of gives (minuscule) hope of a reunion tour. And that would be fucking badass. I don't even know how I'd react. Probably quite teenish. And fangirlish. But, hey. It's allowed.


Lenghty post about Day & Age will be up soon.

Leak of the Day.

It's here. The Killers' new album, Day & Age, was released in iTunes/Japan for download and was quickly all over the Internet.

I've had a pretty fucked up day so I didn't do my daily google routine (I've been doing the "the killers"+day+age+leak search at least a few times a day for the last week) but my friend passed me a link. After much cursing at my unbelievably slow internet connection, it was there. I might've "woo'ed" (ref. the latest How I Met Your Mother episode - seriously, how great was that??)

I'm presently about 2/3 through my first listen. I've immediately taken a liking to This Is Your Life and the just-now-finished Neon Tiger. I went "WTF" at Joy Ride, but I think that's gonna be one of the great ones as well.

I'm so excited! It's showing so much potential. I already like it better than Sam's Town (though that isn't hard to accomplish.)

Anywho. I'm still spooked about Blogger removing posts, so no MP3s. Go here or here, or whereever, though. Get the album. And then just buy the damn thing in just a few days, mkay?

Btw, see the feathered coat again? Apparently it's made by "a woman who goes by Mrs. Jones" (link to interview) who's also made clothes for Kylie Minouge and Scissor Sisters. Which explains a lot, if you ask me.

Also. Lookie here and here. I have no further comment.

The Olympics and Factory45 @ Studenterhuset.

The Olympics, Ida, Factory45, drunk people.


Thursday, November 13, 2008

Today in bullets:
  • Studying all night = 4 hours of sleep.
  • Midterm!!! in American History. Did alright. Definitely passed.
  • Walked most of the way home because my bike had a flat tyre. Again.
  • Powernap to crappy shows like 7th Heaven. Which, incidentally, I secretly love.
  • Coffee, coffee, coffee!!
  • Factory45 at Studenterhuset, Cph.
  • In the words of Lykke Li: DANCE, DANCE, DANCE!

From 25.09.2008 @ Stengade30.

It's actually exactly what I'm in the mood for right now. Just letting go for a little while. And taking pictures.

Plus, Ida and Mira'll be there. Hells yeah.

Anywho. I'm weirdly excited. You know, 'weirdly' because I've seen them like 4 or 5 times, the latest being less than a month ago. But, well. They're fun live.

Later, alligators!

Melissa over at Jam-bo-ree tagged me.
"You have to mention the person who nominated you, and then tag 5 more blogs, and notify them. List 6 unimportant things that make you happy and at last state the rules"

1. Long walks in Copenhagen with only my iPod and camera as company.
2. Concerts that make you lose yourself.
3. Organizing my books and CDs. I redo them about once a month. Alphabetically, by genre, or by fav
4. Learning. The wonder of AHA-moments.
5. Capturing the perfect moment in a photograph.
6. Creating t
hemed playlists in iTunes.

I kept wanting to add something with friends but I think that falls into the "very important" category.

Yeah right.

Found in the bookstore at uni.
(horrible cell-phone quality pic, sorry)

Possibly The Greatest Thing Ever.

Now. Brandon, Ronnie, Dave, and Mark? JUST COME BACK TO DENMARK!

(MP3 here, because I'm already in love with this)
