The Dream is Dead.
Well Denmark crashed out of the European Championship tonight. The only upside is that I have money on the Czechs going home with the trophy, though not enough money to really matter a lot.
Soon I will be heading off to the Eternal Sunshine of the Mudless Dyreskueplads. Hopefully the weather will change for the better very soon, or else it will be wet, muddy and dirty affair. Still the prospect of seing Muse and Franz Ferdinand should be enough to keep me going.
Every now and then I read the Boondocks, and they have certainly taken a turn for the better lately ever since they kidnapped Ralph Nader...
The Arsenal fixturelist has been published.

It's been an actionpacked couple of days. Denmark drew against Sweden, which of course left the Italians crying like big babies, blaming everybody but themselves. Celebrations ensued.
Yesterday was the annual party at the University Park, this year featuring a surprisingly good performance by Insidious Törment.
Today I saw the horribly ordinary Secret Window. The film is so packed with flaws and clichés, that it's a mystery how people ever agreed to do it. Save your money, and then rent David Koepp's previous movie Stir of Echoes, which is way better.
And then of course England and Portugal played one of the most exciting games of Euro 2004, which also served as a lesson in constructive substitutions and how not to do it. And Goldenballs missed his 3rd consecutive penalty, which ended a miserable season for him.
There's a good interview in Rolling Stone with Wilco, and an interview with Muse here.
And I didn't want to jinx it, but it appears I will be working at this years Roskilde Festival. First it was on, then it was uncertain, then it was off, but now it seems it's back to on. Nice!

Must see ASAP.
Try not to laugh at Spaniards.
Write letter full of foul language to these plonkers, who still haven't sent me the shirt we ordered months ago.
Figure out why people love this album so much. (I don't get it!)
Must hear this.

This is our local Social Democratic candidate to the European Parliament. When he is not busy trying to get Europe back on its foot, he is also the lead singer of the successful nü-metal band Linkin Panny.

Now I'm bored and old.
I've been a bit of a teenager the last couple of days; staying at my parents', listening to Slipknot and reading A Catcher in the Rye. I had heard a lot of good things about Catcher, it's one of those books that still spark a tiny bit of controversy in American schools because of its language, and even Ace of Base has a reference to it in a song, so it seemed like something I ought to read. It was actually pretty good, I managed to read it in a day and still catch two games of football, I just wish I had read it a couple of years ago. I'm sure the impact would have been significantly bigger.
In football news, Totti got a three match ban for his part in Projectile-Saliva-Gate(tm). He then went on to cry like a baby and said: "I don't recognise myself from the images that were shown. Maybe it's time to cut back on the crack."

planted a rather large and thoroughly dispusting loogey in Christian Poulsen's face during the game Monday night. So now UEFA has to decide what kind of punishment he deserves. I suspect tomorrow's headline in The Sun will be something like Mouth-Watergate(Tm), in which case I will sue their behinds, as it was my fantastic invention, and registered trademark of yours truly.
And completely without my knowledge my comments thing has apparently turned into a Liverpool FC forum. I can't say I'm too thrilled...
And as Jesper predicted LFC's new coach is Rafael Benitez. Further reports claim that Rafael decided to leave Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Splinter back in the sewer. Whether or not April O'Neall moves to Liverpool is still uncertain.

Sweden however took the lead in Group C with a goal from Arsenal ace Freddie, while Denmark and Italy decided to draw due to a severe lack of Arsenal players.
I've managed to lose every bet I've placed so far, and it kinda makes you question why you do it. And then it hits you how boring Croatia - Switzerland would be without any money on the line...

Euro 2004. And I can't think of a better way of boosting morale than having Julie Rugaard team up with Danish football legend Mikkel Beck for a re-recording of the football anthem Re-Sepp-ten. Beautiful.
According to the Hindustan Times (they are always the first to know!)Kanu and Keown are leaving Arsenal today, which actually means that Arsenal have no players left on www.uglyfootballers.com
And Morrissey decided to get into a bit of trouble suggesting to a crowd that Bush should have died instead of Reagan. That's just great Moz...
new Slipknot album, but all I got was The Best of Vixen... with masks.

So, today the blogging-article was in JP Århus, and the article can be found here. There's even a huge picture of me posing as the slightly geekier third member of Nik & Jay.
Now I can just sit back and wait until the people from blogbot arrive at my door with torches and a catapult, ready to hurl me out of the so-called blogosphere for bringing blogs into disrepute.
Oh, and the Midtfyns Festival has been cancelled, which is crap because we were supposed to go, but apparently we were the only ones. On the plus side I won't have to go through 2 hours of agonising Alicia Keys.

honouring AC/DC by naming a street after them. Which, as far as I know, makes them the only rockband to have a street in both Australia and Spain. I might be wrong though...
The Young brothers standing with some guy who looks a bit like Saddam Hussein, but is probably mayor of Madrid, at Calle de AC/DC in Madrid

I am not entirely sure what to think of it. I think I have all the same objections to it as I had towards Bowling For Columbine, but with the added facts that Michael Moore is by all accounts an arrogant bastard, and that I think it's stupid to give the Palme D'or to a movie that wasn't finished. Political choice or not, it's still a a bit of a devaluation of the Cannes Film Festival.
I have just been photographed for the article on weblogs, which was a bit weird, and come Wednesday I will be telling those of my friends who actually manage to read the paper: "No, it is NOT a diary - it's a weblog! Two completely different things." And they'll laugh. Bastards.
And like so many other vistors before him, Stig Töfting left Hinnerup injured. He should know not to mess with the good people of Hinnerup!
When there's no real football, I have to be a bit creative to find interesting stuff to read on the internet, so it's fantastic when you stumble across some great news. Creed have split up and will hopefully dissappear into oblivion much like Stryper and all other Christian-Rock bands.
I've been watching a lot of clips on the Jon Stewart homepage, so here's a couple of highlights: Barbera Walthers is NOT a drunken whore. Bush vs. Bush. English football. Reality shows.

"Yeah, that's just great Satan, but do you realize how much money I will have to spend to make millions? I don't have that kind of money. I'm not Ted Danson!" Satan was visibly dissappointed, and I felt a bit bad for him. "How about we do this; I bet 10kr, I win 66kr, and I buy ONE beer and no skanky ho's? And most likely I'll go to hell anyway... Deal?"
And that's how I won 66kr.

The Daily Show with John Stewart, where you can find fantastic in-depth coverage of American politics such as this.

Tomorrow I'm being interviewed by JP Aarhus about weblogs. There's a special section in the paper for students and they want to write something about students who write weblogs, and since I am a student and write this miniscule weblog it adds up nicely. I don't really know what to expect since the last time I was interviewed was by the cops in Hadsten, but I will try not to make a complete arse out of myself, or make me look like a diary-writing 14 year old girl, or like a huge nerd. I shall try to act intelligent. If only I had some glasses to wear I'm sure I could seem intelligent...
I am not a big fan of Pulp, but yesterday I saw the video for Bad Cover Version, and it is perhaps one of the best videos ever. So for your viewing pleasure you can find it here.
Finally I would like to take a minute to say WHAT THE HELL WHERE YOU THINKING??? to the nice people at the Roskilde Festival. Why would you go out and sign Avril Lavigne? It must be the biggest mistake since the Daniel Beddingfield incident.

If you have ever wondered just exactly how formulaic Nickelback's music is, here's a scary look into how you get a hit with the same song twice. Crank up your computer and hear for yourself!
