Summer´s soon over.

Written by Boromir on the 28th of July 2009 at 21:00

Yes, it´s true. In 3 weeks it´s back to the base, HQ or whatever you call it of education. Pronounced "School". Often I've spent my summer´s outside playing around with balls (You pervert) or just randomly jumping around because of the fact that I'm free.

I'm jumping around and playing with balls nowadays, though it´s virtual, right here on the computer. I've actually spent up to, lets say, 60-70% of the whole summer practising my skills on Team Fortress 2. There´s not many games that I've played for such a long time.

So, 3 weeks left. What to do with them? I´m starting 9:th grade, and after that it´s time for the gymnasium. I'm going to do my best to get into the Film gymnasium... Stationed 500 kilometres from here. The specific location is Visby, Gotland. I spent one week there summer 2007 listening to some politics, for a stereotypic person my age he would be bored to death listening to financial and immigration stuff. But somehow I actually found it kinda interesting to listen to that stuff.

Anyway, I'm heading off to Göteborg next week. Going to shop a lot, because of the school start. I'm thinking of buying a coat, Sherlock Holmes style. Something on the head too, of course. Otherwise I'm just going look at some stuff that´s on sale, and hopefully watch a film.

"Sommaren med Göran" or "Public Enemies" is the films I want to see. If you noticed I'm only 14, just a month away from being 15. So no "Public Enemies", damn laws. But! "Sommaren med Göran" isn't that bad, right? (Insert awesome smiley or green guy here)

I liked Peter Magnusson and David Hallenius in Hey Baberiba, shame they cancelled it. Every Friday evening I sat there in front of the big, fat TV and watched one hour weird, sick and just brilliant humour. I even remember the first episode, but that isn't relevant.

So, back to the present. I'm sitting here typing some words in my blog and listening to some Kanye West. "Heard em Say" if you wanted to know. Best song from him, nice lyrics is mixed with smooth piano music and addicting beats.

I hope your summer has been good, mine hasn't. Nor bad, is it OK if I say neutral? Been sitting, listening to music and watching films.

Boromir out!

Bob Marley.

Right now Im sitting here infront of the computer and listening to the ol' legend Bob Marley. I´m pretty sure that most of you guys (And girls) know who he´s, but for you that has been living under a cave for some years Bob Marley is a rasta-god.

Even the biggest hardcore-metal fan could tune
in Bob Marley on the radio and love it. I listen
for the most to Hiphop, which is Rasta´s "little brother".

I feel that this is the perfect time to listen to him, because it´s summer. Right now I´m listening to Hotel California, which is superb. I´ve heard thusands of covers on this masterpiece, but this one is my favorite.

The other day I found a song called "The Sun is Shining" (By Bob Marley of course), I remembered the lyrics but I wasnt familiar with the music. That´s when I found out that way back I listened to the "Funkstar Deluxe mix" of it.

"Afrika Unite!", you heard me. I decided to turn on this sweet, jazzy, inspiring song. It reminds me about summer, in some way.

Too bad he´s dead, because I really wanted to see a live-show with him. When seeing a video with him on a live-show the audience... Let´s just say it looks magic! ^^

Summer-break!

Written by Boromir on the 13th of June 2009 at 22:44

Finally it's summer-break, the favorite time of the year for every swedish kid. It´s the time when you eat ice-creams, stay up late and why not go down to the lake? Me? I´m going to be stationed here infront of the computer, like a soldier stationed at war (Now that´s a good comparing!). Maybe Im the only one that doesnt find it so funny to play with the stuff that mother nature gives us, I rather play around with the stuff Bill gates provides us with.

And by that it´s not only the computer that will be the core of all entertainment this summer, the Xbox360 will also be played.
But what to play? Within my knowledge there´s no big title coming out this hot summer, so I guess I have to stick with the ones that I already have. And a couple of days ago I brought out the gamecube, in hope of playing some old games to bring with fresh nostalgy. Though I got dissapointed, because I didnt find anything of use.

How will you spend your summer? :)
