The seat of power

Imagine all the souls who have stood in this spot, looking in the same direction as I was when I took this picture. A hundred years ago, there wasn't as much light as there is now, and the place smelled to high heaven of rotting fish, dumped on the quay by fishing boats moored just below the lion's grand posture.

Here, Kitty!


This was going to be a post on a heavy subject. But then, what would be the point?
I realized that it's better to be positive and proactive. Thus, I'm pleased to announce that my family has a new member! Yep, that's her on the right.

Drink, I think


I've just discovered a new beverage I have to try. Apparently it's available in Korea. http://www.jinro.com/

In my bubble between trees


I just drove, tried not to think to deeply. Sadness welled up inside me. So I didn't. Think too much, that is.
Instead, I watched the brilliant trees. They were covered in powdery snow, as though dusted with sugar. I tricked myself into joyousness, almost bliss there, for a while.
Life is strange. I've got to immerse myself in it and do a bit of catching up.

Fishy evidence


What goes in the bag, stays in the bag. Or does it?
What's he on about? Why is he in the car?
Why is this posted on a blog, and why do you think I'm watching this?
I thought I was someone else.

On the way

New killer star

All the corners of the buildings

Who but we remember these?
The sidewalks and trees
I'm thinking now
I got a better way
I discovered a star

Panerai

I just can't let it go. Yes, I know it's totally unneccesary but, there it is! The Panerai 's just one of those things, you know? It has that alluring style and quality that fits right in just anywhere.

Screwy chic

Yes, I do like these lamps a lot! It's something about the... ahh, latent violence.
This is definitely something I would have in my palace, were I a third world dictator. I would actually like it in my living-room anyway, but the price-tag is a bit....much. It really would be cheaper to just buy an illicit AK47 and dip it in gold yourself!
Hmm...!

Italian and Japanese students fascinated by
Ingrid on a sunny Saturday morning.

Guess the spot

This is one of my favourite views. I like the facade, the choice of roofing material and how the whole thing is situated. Some of the corners are too
aggressive to suit my taste, but imperfection is dynamic.
From this viewpoint, there is an even more interesting building behind your back.

Dub


Today is tuesday. Just three more days to friday. Oh, happiness! I will compile a CD with dub, get a dozen Red Stripe and spend a slow, langorous afternoon drifting into early evening cooking in my kitchen. Coconut and fish, small pizzas for the kids and something with lots and lots of chili.

Full sleeve

As you already know, having read every posting on this blog, I like art.
Now, what better way to appreciate art than carrying it around on you? Thus, I've developed an (unhealthy?) interest in personal adornment by way of getting more* tattoos.
So, how about I do one arm full sleeve? Something like Russel Mitchells arm (see pic) perhaps?

*Yes, I do have one already. It's just like the one most every other person seems to have nowadays; A small one, often done in tribal black with some obscure meaning to the person wearing it.

I like the way you move...


I like riding my Zoomer and listening to music while I do it! I'm going to like it even more soon, thanks to Polini...

Lots of trees and some fresh air

I spent this sunday afternoon in the woods with at least part of my family. I brought along my standard issue army survival knife. It's the black one with a built in whistle and fire-steel. Pretty handy, as I used it to start a campfire for burning our sausages and marshmallows into inedible crisps...

I came home smelling like an arsonist. the sausages were good, though!

Re-creation or maintenance of my soul


This may sound a bit obvious, but doing something enjoyable is beneficial for your brain

Espresso

What can I say? You can get a good espresso in Kungsbacka, too!

New shoes

Another pair of loafers. Great for driving, fit like a glove and they look cool.

Cool shades

If you are done with all those fashionista goggles by Prada and whatever... Go for the original, ultracool shades that will match your F-16 just perfectly. Ray-Bans? Nooo! They're from Randolph Industries, silly!

5 days later


So I think spring may come soon. It's cold as hell right now but there's something in the air. Finally moved in to our v e r y b i g apartment. Feels good.

I like cooking in my new kitchen, but I miss a fan over the stove, but will solve that issue soon.

Only a few days left


I'm moving into a 6-room apartment on saturday!

Another trip

This time I went to Karlstad to show an industrial property to prospective buyers. I met them for all of 19 minutes, before I got back in my car for the trip home...

Seems like I'm personally altering the climate by driving 600km for a twenty-minute meeting... *sigh*

Anger management

Typical anger management "techniques" are the use of deep breathing and meditation as a means to relaxation. As the issue of anger varies from person to person, the treatments are designed to be personal to the individual.*

Investment policy


Does anyone still doubt that China and India will be this planets leading economies within the next twenty years?* I also predict that West-Africas economy will become very strong. Just look at asian investments in West African countries!

* (I mean, they already are!)

I also believe in South America. Venezuela is a very interesting market if equlibrium is maintained. Just hope those norte-americanos keep their hands off that oil.

Fund #1:
(up NO DATA%)70% Venezuela, 30% India
Fund #2:(up 53%) 20% India, 15% Asian Small Cap, 20% Russia East Capital, 35% Russia, 10 Latin America

Moh ching, moh meng instant karma

Here's an interesting thought: I read somewhere of someone, who in order to attract money by using the strange universal law of karma, would write little blessings on one dollar bills with a marker. She would then hide the money where it would eventually be found, and quickly leave. The giving away apparently returned a hundredfold.

The point? Give without that egoistic urge to bask in someone's obvious happiness over being given money with a blessing!

Do some unexpected good. I guess it could actually cause a paradigm shift. In any case, at least two people will be happier than before!

Paraphernilia

So. I will sit in my Louis Ghost chair. Behind my frosted glass IKEA table. Having set my vodka-lime down on top of the Compinibili, stroked the touchpad on my laptop and logged in to write, I realize I need one more item. This is it*:

* For those of you who don't know:
It's a 2-1 speaker system from
Harman Kardon called Soundstick II


Yes, I am a materialist. But then I live in the western hemisphere. We are supposed to consume. Not consuming is counter-productive to the western view on economic growth. (Non-consumerism may even become a criminal offence). What will everyone do, once they don't have to consume or produce in order to afford consumtion? Think?

The present is now

The past is just a memory, and the future hasn't occured just yet.
The only thing that exists is the present.
Why not enjoy it just as it is? It's unique and will happen only once.
