I wasn't really going to post a video again today but this is too awesome (as long as you can ignore the smugness and listen to what he's actually saying).

The name of my town is an old word for tomb. It's incredibly approporiate. Holy razornburn Batman I'm sick of this place.


In other news (though probably old by now): cover song of the year.

I rarely find myself without words. Trying to wrap my head around the massacre in Norway where almost 90 kids lost their lives this weekend is pretty hard though. The deed itself was bad enough, the outcries of hate and racism and general bigotry afterwards.. didn't really help. The Norwegian government handled it all extremely well but they can't stop single minded idiots from voicing their opinions. It's kind of weird to say it, but I'm glad the guy who did it eventually turned out to be white.

A lot of so-called experts were surprised to find out muslim fundamentalists weren't behind it. Some called it an act of terror for as long as they thought brown people were doing the shooting, when they found it was a single white guy, all of a sudden it wasn't terrorism anymore. Just like that he was just some deranged guy who played too much World of Warcraft instead. It's like there only are two kinds of killers; middle easterners and gamers.

Realitycheck.

Between 2006 and 2009, 1 770 acts of terror were commited in Europe. Six of them were connected to muslim fundamentalists. That makes 0,34%.
1 596 acts of terrorism, or 90,2%, were connected to right wing fundamentalists.

And I bet not even that many of them played WoW.

Really tired today so I'm not gonna post any of my usual stupid rants. Just wanted to share this because it's fucking hilarious. Dem asians in particular are awesome.

People are getting fatter. Everyone knows that. What's kind of weird though, is that so are wild animals. Some of it can possibly be blamed on the junk food lying around for rats and other animals to find. However, primates and rodents in the National Toxicology Program, an inter-agency program run by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, are also getting fatter. Despite being on a strict diet.

One reason could be bisphenol-A in their systems, which, if it's true, implicates some pretty bad things for all of us.

I'm in an untergang kind of mood today, must be because of all the paint fumes I've inhaled. I have a four day painting job. If it was in the Sistine Chapel I would've done Adam a favor and drawn his dick bigger, but alas, I am only painting an average house.
One of these days I'm gonna have to get a real job. But considering the 8% unemployment rate it's not going to be soon. My fellow farmhands at the place I worked at before? A biochemist and a computer engineer. Waste of talent? Maybe. Waste of student loans? NGH YES.

Two completely unrelated things:

1. My boyfriend just told me he wants to have sex with Jared from ScrewAttack. I'm okay with this.

2. I'm considering getting a rowing machine. Those of you who actually know what you're doing, would you mind telling me if this is a ridiculous idea or not?

Well shit, my weekend didn't turn out lazy at all. I ended up having to work 12 hour shifts both saturday and sunday. I don't particularly mind though since this was my last week and I needed all the extra work I could get. So during the past two days I've contibuted to putting 24 tons of fresh food on your collective table. I can live with that. It was a good way to end the season.

Interestingly enough, there's rarely food on my own table, atleast none that seem to be meant for me. Or so my cat says. She's made a habit out of stealing my breakfast. She loves yoghurt with cereal, especially the kind that has pieces of dried fruit in it. Bananas in particular. She also decided she likes toast more than she likes me and vehemently massacres my face if I dare challenge her for it. Oh well, it's not like I don't need the weight loss anyway.

So, I'm now officially out of a job. Anyone need a Swede with two master degrees and a love for sadistic pets? I can swim too.

It's gonna be a looonely weekend. Dropped my boyfriend off at the trainstation earlier, he's going to Gothenburg to play with his crazy awesome game developer-friends. I wanted to go with him but I lack not only funds but also someone to look after my dog when I'm away, so I had to stay home. Besides, it's probably good for him to get ridiculously drunk with his friends, without me, once in a while.

On my way from the parking lot at the train station, I experienced the wonder that is tourists in this picturesque little piece of shit town. The population here quadruples during June and July (and so do the prices in grocery stores) which is pretty damn inconvenient for those who actually live here. Anyway, in this particular incident some idiot had parked his BMW in the middle of the exit from the parking lot, and had also scattered suitcases all around his car to really make sure not even a bike could squeeze by. A pack of teenagers were buzzing around the car, talking and laughing and not giving a fuck about the long line of cars waiting to get out of there. It took them twenty minutes to put their shit in the trunk (while pausing to giggle and pose every three seconds or so) and get out of the way. I don't know if these people completely lack the ability to think or if it's something they just figure they can do without when they're on vacation so they leave it at home.


So. Rainy alone-weekend with no money and no dogsitter ahead. I think I'm gonna have a Mad Men marathon. While drinking whiskey and wearing a suit, for good measure.

The past few days there has been a distinct lack of blog entry. I know it was hard on you. It's okay now.

I spent the main part of my weekend getting tipsy hovering around the outskirts of Oscar's parents' all-weekend-party. It's funny, I've never met anyone who can party like they can. They have friends in their late twenties who can barely keep up. It doesn't take much for me to get drunk considering I only drink like twice a year so I don't even bother trying. Oscar and I kept to ourselves most of the time, he fell asleep in a hammock and I sat around playing Game Dev Story, talking to a two year old. She was probably the most coherent person in the house by friday afternoon, and would remain so until monday.

Sunday mainly brought a ton of work. I also visited my maternal grandma. She's got more diseases than skincells and it amazes me every time I see her than she's still alive. She's really nice though, and I should probably see her more often. If nothing else because she's the only relative I have left that isn't completely fucking crazy. I've never even had to file for a restraining order against her, that's pretty special right there.

So yeh, all in all a good weekend. Except for the fact that my old friends Depression and Insomnia are creeping closer all the time despite new meds. Gonna have to do something about that before they start playing serious.

Holy shit today has been weird. I started taking new antidepressants today and they're really fucking with my head. During dinner I started thinking about how hilarious it would be if dogs had human asses and I couldn't stop laughing. I guess I should hope this passes over when I get used to the pills, but I kind of like it this way.

I also like this video.


I'd like to see her try to hug my cat. Chibi is a mean motherfucker.

Lastly for Swedes, a hilarious Jonathan Swift-esque response to SD and immigration politics.

Everyone knows someone who tends to invade your personal space right? You're out walking and talking and suddenly you find yourself in the middle of the road cause this person kept coming closer while you kept trying to maintain your distance. Or you're out with a group of friends and this person comes up to talk to you, and after ten minutes you're half a mile away from everyone else cause you have to back away a step every few seconds.

Have you ever.. say.. headbutted them?
...

..yeah me neither.



Also, why doesn't this ever happen here? :(

The past few days have been extremely hot and humid during the day, with almost tropical thunderstorms in the evenings. Yesterday, a city about three hours from where I live recieved more rain in one night than they usually get for the whole summer. And that's in Denmark, which means there are flooded basement cheese shops everywhere. For once I'm glad I live in the countryside where there's enough fields to soak up the water. And not a single basement cheese shop.

My dog got a heatstroke this weekend, which sucked old man-wart, and my computer got trojans, which sucks slightly less but still hard enough to leave teethmarks in said wart. The finger I hurt while caving in Borneo (god it sounds so cool to say that that it's almost worth the chronic injury) aches like a motherfucker. So I've spent my time off playing Eternal Sonata, which sometimes is good and sometimes drives me mad, but so far it's worth the effort. I've seen a few movies that were actually good. I don't really do that very often lately. Lars von Triers Antichrist was fantastic. I've always loved von Trier and Willem Dafoe, and their combined effort is fucking beautiful.
Reservation Road was a bit of a surprise for me. I have a huge ladyboner for both Joaquin Phoenix and Jennifer Connelly and neither disappointed in this movie. It was really refreshing to see something resembling actual mature emotions and intelligence in a ridiculously premised movie about a hit and run.

So yeah, I've had a lazy ass weekend. How was yours?

Poor bin Ladin. Really. With a face like that, the guy probably couldn't have gotten any other jobs than being a terrorist leader if he'd wanted to.
Can you picture that mug on the guy flipping your burger? On a bank clerk? A bouncer? A plumber? A librarian? No, he was fucking destined and doomed for evil.

I bet he went to job interviews all the time and they were like "well your qualifications are perfect but you're just too evil looking. I'm sorry don't kill me". He probably couldn't even deliver news papers as a kid: "Well we could let you have the job if you covered your face in a helmet.. but your beard would probably get stuck in the spokes on the bike's wheel and you'd sue us and/or kill us when half your face was ripped off.. no, I'm sorry, it's just not worth the risk".

And then one day he saw an ad in the newspaper, by someone hiring terrorist leaders, and it was like "must have evil face". And the guy lit up like a fucking christmas tree and knew he'd found his calling.
