Beginning to feel like home.

It's been about a month, and due to the good people at Stofa and Fona, I haven't really been able to get online until now. The good news is that my wireless internet is now up and running, the cable is on, and my laptop, dear Mr. Packard, is back home and as good as new.
The motherboard, keyboard and battery has been changed, which would have set me back about 4 grand, if I had bought the insurance. And they haven't deleted my harddisc, which would have been a minor disaster, because that's where I keep all my photos and shit from the last many years.
Oh and also, I've moved to my new place in Skejby, which is working out nicely. Between the daily bikerides to work, and the semi-manual labour, I've even managed to slim down a bit.

While this blog has been in a coma, Frekvens.dk is finally blossoming into the beautiful, green, rose that we intended it to be, so make sure to stop by.

So, yeah, sorry about the lack of updates. A lot of shit has happened since last time, none of which is really important. A lot of moving stuff around, and hopefully I'll find my home for the next couple of years, this very sunday. In the meantime it's all about Arsenal vs. Spurs tomorrow.

In more relevant news, www.frekvens.dk has been revitalized and is finally up n' running the way God intended it to. So please do go have a look, and leave a comment. Remember, the more often you visit, the better our self esteem gets, and the better our self esteem gets, the closer we get to world domination.

Returning to footie, I'm really looking forward to tomorrow (technically today), even though our stats at Shite Heart Lane aren't immaculate by a long shot. A couple of goals from midfield, my money is on Hleb, should shut them up, and no matter how you twist and turn it, our perfomances this year have been nothing short of impressive.

Hopefully one of these days I'll get the chance to sit down and explain to the world why "licens" is crap and why Tom Waits is rubbish, but I can't be arsed right now. But I promise that even though there won't be regular updates for a while (stupid moving around), this blog is not dead. As Mark Twain once said: Sp*rs are c*nts." How right he was...

Oh, to fight is to defend....

Q: Is it ever okay to condone violence?

A: Yes, I believe it was okay today. I do realize that as a football spectator, watching it on the telly, you can become strangely detatched, and tend to forget that those are real people out there. That being said, I cheered loudly when Fabregas flew boots first into Gamst Pedersen, afterwhich he quite obviously had a bit of a laugh, while said Norwegian was writhing in pain.
For most of the game Blackburn had applied their bully tactics, as they always do against Arsenal, and the ref seemed to have lost control of them - even if they did get quite a few cards. Having been kicked and pushed all day, it was almost beautiful to see Fab exert his revenge, only seconds after having been kicked in the head by Gamst.
It reminded me of the song Fight Test by The Flaming Lips:

Oh, to fight is to defend, if it's not now, then tell me when would be the time that you would stand up and be a man - for to lose I could accept, but to surrender - I just wept and regretted this moment.

It was nice to see the kids step up, and demonstrate that they were no pushovers. Although only just out of his teens, Fab has started to give as good as he takes. And that, in my simple opinion, shows desire and commitment in bucket loads.

On a completely different note, I'll once again recommend T-H's (who has also adopted Arsenal to be his club) weblog. It's an interesting read.

Football Time Again

Yay, it's almost time for some proper footie again. I've got my dreamteam sorted out, and soon I will start betting money like a crazy person. In the meantime, here's some good old english footie humour, featuring Hitler, who apparently supports Sheffield Utd.

Also, I finally got around to watching the highly overrated Children of Men, and it's.... well, highly overrated.

Things are happening... perhaps.

I don't recall if I have mentioned it, but i bought a new laptop computer recently. I have of course already managed to trash the keypad, first with the aid of some diet coke, and again in the frantic drying session that followed.
The end result is that the backwards arrow key is completely out of order, and the Num Lock key has fallen of - yet still works. The space bar takes a bit more pressure than before, and the Alt and H keys are kinda wobly. Is there any way to fix stuff like this? I have no clue. I could send it back to the shop, but I dont want to go without a computer, for what will probably be ages. Somebody help me, please.

My regular go-to-guy, when dealing with computer issues, is in Africa right now, and is writing what Kasmir may refer to as a Travelblogue, called beautyof.dk.

There is, as the headline suggests, some things going on right now, but I don't want to get in to them as of yet because of different uncertainties. Small, but overall positive things. For once.

Uhhh, and I recently found season 1 of Sledge Hammer! on dvd, which is extremely silly, and somewhat different than I remember it. Still a good laugh though.

Three easy ways to lose a couple of pounds.

It's a regular fixture in sitcoms: Some girl has to fit a certain dress for the big party next weekend, but has to lose 4 pounds or so to fit it perfectly.
Over the years I have been widely recognized as a bit of a fitness guru, and I will therefore share with you some weightloss methods I have picked up over the last month or so. I have seen people use some of them, and used one myself to great effect. The excess weight will literaly fly away from you.

  • Buy and eat sushi from a stand in the tent area of a rock festival, on a hot summers day.
  • Why not drink your beverages inside a portable toilet, at the same festival?
  • Try drinking water directly from the Mediterranean sea. It may not taste fantastic, but it's not as bad as Spanish tab water.

You may also want to buy all of your meals at airports: at £4 for a hotdog or a stale tuna sandwich, your economy will help you keep that weight in check.

Push me, and then shove me...

So, the Benicassim festival was great fun, and even thou the weather was great, and the beer was relatively cheap, we managed to review more than a third of all the bands there. I can't be arsed to link to everything, but you should be able to find it here.

Going back and forth was a bit of a nightmare, with massive delays, and Spanair managing to loose my bag on both ways. According to this article, which I wish I had read earlier, it has been a problem all summer. Absolutely scandalous. But since people apparently know about it now, it saves me the trouble of writing them the harshest letter ever.

One of the hightlights of the festival was watching the Danish band Whomadewho play on the mainstage, and seemingly impress everybody. There is a blog that has their version of Satisfaction online.

I have a long history of getting sick everytime I leave the country, or in fact the city, and I thought I gotten past that, but now I think I've gotten one of those travelling diseases. I won't go into details, but I feel like crap, and for some reason my ear is still clogged after the plainride. Balls!

Is this love?

The weekend is coming to an end, and a pretty good time has been had. Friday night was spent watching Metallica in Aarhus, and no matter what reviewers said, I thought it was a pretty good show. Obviously there has been a lot of focus on the power outage, but really; who cares. The music was great, and they played with the usual energy. Pure nostalgia, yes, but still pretty frickin' good.

The rest of the weekend has been all about relaxing at my parents' place, wayching Die Hards 1 and 2, A Mighty Wind, and Michael Rasmussen winning Tour de France (well, almost).

I find it somewhat intriguing that both Anders and Stine have spent their time reading the same book. If that's not true love, I don't know what is. At some point they will undoubtedly morph into one person. Insert your own Andersine joke here...

If watching Klan and Øgendahl tonight has taught me anything, it would be that comedy shows on tv aren't for everybody. What a bunch of crap.

Finally, it seems that Julio Baptista is on his way to Galatasaray where he will team up with Tobias Linderoth. For some reason I think that's a bit more his skill level, than playing in Arsenal and Real Madrid. Good riddance, I say. If only Arsenal would start signing some players soon...
