    Music obtaining binge

    The Danish band D.A.D - especially "Riskin' it all", "No fuel left for the pilgrims" and their latest, "Monster Philosophy". They're really great, heavy rock rather than metal. Some critics call them country-punk or country-metal. I only know that they're a great band!

    Is bearing children an inherit human right?

    Oh, I certainly don't agree to that either. As late as the mid 1900s mentally ill people were forcibly sterilized in Sweden, which caused a great scandal. My point is that regardless of what I personally believe, we can't stop people from becoming pregnant. But the right of the child is often...

    Is bearing children an inherit human right?

    I can't see having children as a right for anyone. To some, it's a life-long dream that can't come true without psychologically and financially straining actions, such as invitero conception and things like that. But having children shouldn't be a right, since if we consider it a right we're...

    New Iron Maiden Studio Album

    My guess is 9 songs, probably none under 6 minutes :innocent:

    Another ruined experience - August 14, Basle

    About sound quality and that stuff: At Ullevi (Gothenburg) I chose to stand close to the sound tech's booth and I must say that the sound was spectacular! I could hear all three guitars and some details from the riffs and such. Bruce's voice was better than on the last two Gothenburg gigs and...

    Bootlegs from the Somewhere Back In Time Tour so far

    There's a torrent around that some guy made with his private dv cam. The sound is pretty ok but the video is so-so since he's standing at the sides and people stand in his way. The torrent is called Iron_Maiden_Somewhere_back_in_time_in_Gothenburg_bootleg_xvid_2008_Lzy and it's a 2-disc Xvid.

    Stockholm Stadium 16th July 2008

    I was listening to the radio-sent version of the Gothenburg 2005 gig where he introduces Nicko as a "sticksman extraordinaire - but where he sticks it no-one knows..." I laughed out loud at that and the people on the bus looked strangely at me :D

    Stockholm Stadium 16th July 2008

    Wow, Natalie. You should send that revue into one of the evening papers here in Sweden (Aftonbladet or Expressen) just to let them know how a real fan experiences a gig. I read every word about the Stockholm show last week and it just made me even more anxious. Come Saturday, I'm off to...

    Favorite tour you attended

    I must say that Live after Death in Gothenburg was the best for me. I saw Maiden the year before at the same venue and that was good enough to want to go again, but LAD just blew my mind. ROTAM live was an event that's stuck with me for 20+ years. Oh, and I saw Meatloaf in 1981 :bigsmile: He...

    Language affects personality

    I'm not sure about languages, but sometimes it's enough to switch dialects. My wife sounds and behaves one way when she's around here (Swedish west coast) but when she speaks with her mother or other relatives in the far south of Sweden (Skåne) her entire persona changes; she swears more, talks...

    The government has just made illegal wiretapping legal...

    I'm aware. I just find it really bad form that so many abstain when it's such a provocative and controversial piece of legislation. Cowards! And yes, I believe the law will be in play one year from today. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for chasing terrorists. What I'm against is this "guilty until...

    The government has just made illegal wiretapping legal...

    It would be laughable if it wasn't so god damned bad! The thing is that politicians throughout the western world don't seem to understand that they're only playing into the hands of the terrorists. Every infringement of our freedoms and rights is a win for the terrorists. They're winning, and...

    European Politics

    Re: European Union EU really shows it's views on true democracy...if you have a referendum and the people say 'no', it must be corrected. No is not an option? What's that? Democracy? Saddam couldn't have done it better :mad:

    What about Circle of Hands? That's the one that did it for me. Beautiful song.

    Now drinking - the revival

    In Sweden we used to have lots of small breweries, but these days one of the best, Falcon, is owned by Carlsberg and if I want Carlsberg's products I buy a Carlsberg. In my hometown, Halmstad, we have a fairly successful brewery called Krönlein's but I find their beers hard to drink. Unfortunately.
