9th-Nov-2016 06:47 pm - 6 years without you ...

Athens 23 Oct 1937 - Stockholm 09 Nov 2010




I still think about you everyday.
I still find myself ready to pick up the phone to call you.
I still laugh with you silly jokes.
And I talk about you almost everyday.
I still dream of you.
I still cry for you.
I still wonder of what would you have felt or thought for things that happen in the world
if you were still around.

I still get mad at you.


I know you were not the perfect father.
You made me angry so many times.
But who is perfect anyway?
You never had a father so you had no examples.

You were the best father you knew how to be.
Improvising.
And for that, I thank you.

And I thank you again for raising me like a boy.
I thank you for letting me roam the streets and climb on trees.
For allowing me to scratch my knees and scrape my elbows.
I thank you for the treasure hunts.
I thank you for all the cats.

I thank you for all the road-trips in that old SAAB allover Greece.
Thank you for letting me skip school that day it snowed.
Thank you for dancing with me.
For the endless walks.
Thank you for the rides and hikes up on our mountain.
For singing to me with your guitar.

Thank you for all the stories you made up to put me to sleep when I was little.
Thank you for teaching me to love the opera.

I thank you for letting me spray-paint a coffin and a giant bat
on the ceiling and the walls of that old room.
Thank you for accepting my weirdness, my mood-swings and my anger.
Thank you for driving me to school, to work, to clubs, to parties, to the airport.
Thank you for calling me every Sunday.

And I thank you again
for letting me watch the Clockwork Orange on TV when I was 5.
Thank you for taking me to the summer theater to watch Alien when I was 9.
Thank you for letting me watch Rosemary's Baby,The Shining and Psycho when I was 10
Thank you for taking me to the summer movie marathon to watch Scarface when I was 12
Thank You for taking Me to the movies 3 times a week!

Thank you for being my dad.



I love you and I miss you everyday.









" You are beside me. All around me...
But how I wish you were here ... "

9th-Nov-2016 05:50 pm - Comiccon 2016


Sadly Comiccon 2016 was the poorest, most miserable (in terms of variety and spectacle) and yet the most expressive that I can remember.
I did have fun of course. But not 250kr fun.
Next year they better shape up cause they are losing audience ...





That's right, we meet again :)








The only game that caught my eye this year




Forklifts with hats ... may the fork be with you



Geeky kid playing Super Mario on a fat tv :D



VR is the future ...
So I play a bad immitation of feeding frenzy for VR
and owend it! YEah! :D











And others, like Magnus,  go VR driving
"He is a pro. Is he a rally driver?"
Asked the dude working there :D








Slave Cage :p






Like a nightmare






I Pac Man




Le lol :D Glad there is no video of me on this thing.
I just went round and round like a Disco ball








Aaaaand that was pretty much it this year ...
Not even the batmobile was here this time -_-

Hmmm I hope things pick up again next year

2nd-Nov-2016 09:34 am - Like angel-dust

Today I woke up early in a snowy city.
I always feel so much love and happiness looking at the snow.

I forget whatever troubles me for a few seconds looking at the snow falling.
Especially the first snow of the year.

But this morning, there was something else that made me smile,
before I looked through the window to see the bright veil spread all over;
I looked at my phone that was blinking.
It was My precious.
He hates snow. As a matter of fact, he abhors it.
And he is terrible with words. Generally.
Yet instead of sending me a typical Swede winter-hating drivel
about the dark cold moody day
and the snow that makes his work harder and his mood crappier ...
He sent me this:


"God morgon Älskling,
och välkommen till ett vackert snöigt Sverige!
Snön faller ner likt ängladammet från ängelns vingar efter en lång sommardvala
och nu vaknar upp och slår ut sina vingar för att sväva iväg
och sprida sin kärlek över Dig och Mig.
Är det inte härligt!?"


"Good morning Darling,
and welcome to a beautiful snowy Sweden!
Snow is falling down like angel-dust from angel-wings after a long summer hibernation
and now awoke beating his wings to fly away
and spread his love over Thee and Me.
Isn't it great!?"



I think he is starting to get under my skin.
To have a cynical man writing such a thoughtful loving good morning message about something he detests ...
Well, what can I say.
If that's not love ... then what is?!



-


 - And while this one is a 3 year old picture, it IS the first snow of that year -
Outside my work on my lunchbreak :D
I was the only happy person that day!

(and no that was not any other key than the key to the office ;) )
