Quote of the Day XIV / Happy Yule!

Tell me how many times can this story be told  After all of these years it should all sound so old  But it somehow rings true in the back of my mind  As i search for a dream that words can no longer define  Trans-Siberian Orchestra – What Child is This? Tell me how many […]

KORG PA-50?

The last few days I’ve been running in and out of music stores looking for a new keyboard. I have got a really great one, a relatively new Yamaha PSR-S500, as it is, but for playing a lot of my music I need two keyboards at once. I was first thinking whether to buy a cheap one […]

Beauty and the Beast

I watched Disney’s 1991 film Beauty and the Beast today, for the first time since I was little. I was in love with Belle back then, and when I watched it again I recalled all those feelings again. It’s still one of the most beautiful films ever made, except I hate the ending. That Beast […]

Gustav Vasa och hans söner

Stockholms blodbad Efter 1397 och över 120 år framåt var Sverige i union med Norge och Danmark.

Kristian I hade sedan mitten på 1400-talet varit härskande kung i Danmark och Norge, och […]

Made in Hong Kong (And Various Other Places)

As I reported earlier, the next release by symphonic metal band Nightwish will be their live EP/DVD with the odd name ”Made in Hong Kong (And Various Other Places)” to be released in March of 2009 (some sources claim the 6th, some the 16th, but officially it’s just ”March”. The official press letter was rather […]
