oh tragic ... eh ... not

I got an email from a friend today with a sad face and this link beside it:
music videos blocked on youtube
Who gives a crapitilycrap? Apart from 12 year olds and some 20 year olds who forgot they had a life, who the hell is watching music videos anymore? It is the most boring thing I know. Youtube has another function. Any information about anything, some idiot, some how, has made it possible for you. Hell I have a video on youtube on “how to carve a pumpkin” lol Who gives a toss about music videos?
Unless it is something really VERY special, in which case you want it to be good quality anyway, not suck-ass youtube-quality, so you find the means to “get it”, get it?


“… Fifteen men of the whole ship's list
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist!
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
The skipper lay with his nob in gore
Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore
And the scullion he was stabbed times four
And there they lay, and the soggy skies
Dripped down in up-staring eyes
In murk sunset and foul sunrise
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum



Run, Lola, Run

Running can get really tedious sometimes so you need music. But when you run every other day you run out of ideas (uheh). Once I run listening to Diamanda’s “Sono L’Antichristo” for fuck’s sake.  Every now and then I get a brilliant idea for my mp3 running list and today I thought of one of my favorite pop bands, Erasure. How come I haven’t thought of it earlier??? Their music is the perfect shot. Great rhythms and very pleasant, very gay! :)  (tsk pfff, literally gay, don’t be silly). Nothing profound or truth-seeking, just a kick to keep you going. You can start with “Always” which is perfect for warm-up and then continue with “Lay all your love on me” and after that you are ready to speed up a bit so you have “Love to hate you” then “Oh L’amour” and then any other song will do. Then in the end I like to finish with “A Long Goodbye”

Let’s see how that works for me with all the snow outside.


"Ice water", or else "Italian ice", or else "Granita", or else "Sorbet"

NoWAY I’m running today!!!

I went out to take some pictures and check the ground for my evening run today and I realized it is a no go. The streets are very slimy and there is lots of melting snow and gravel allover the place. And if I want to run in a trail I will have to endure great potholes with mud sorbet. I don’t have the appropriate clothes for that and I hate to come home muddy. On top of that, a lady fell flat right in front of me. A really violent fall. A step away and she would have fallen on me. I tried to pick her up but I couldn’t do it on my own, another person had to help. She was in shock for a few minutes and I thought she was badly hurt. She was fine. A few scratches. But that was the cherry on top. Sorry my dear ass, I am not running today. You may continue to grow until the snow disappears.

Hrmf … and I was so geared up for a good run by the Hammarby bay today, by the channel. (nice picture from panoramio in the link)

It looks like this now and I was looking forward to a run with this view …

That’s a picture I took from the train over the bridge a couple of days ago.

But I am feeling rather yellow … at least today … I don’t want to fall :s

Meh, and I had my shoes dusted and my mp3 player loaded. Argggg. I need to run up and down the stairs at least to blow off some steam :/
