okay

I know I’ve been off for a while, but school took over my life for the past week.
Also pissed because the free internet access at the hostel didn’t like this account so I couldn’t blog from Germany…

Anyway, like I said, Berlin was grrreat.
Thursday consisted of walking.. and walking… and walking. 17km Did my feet hurt? Yes. Did my WHOLE body hurt? YEEES. That night we went to a rock club called Sage. According to Me and Michan it would take 20min to walk there… we walked for about an hour, haha, and we’re still trying to blame Therése for that 😛
Great club though… lounge, dancefloor downstairs, good livebands, metal/hard rock dancefloor.. good looking guys, haha.. what a disappointment to come back to sweden 😉

At Sage

Friday… woke up pretty early, had some breakfast and went to the venue. Really scruffy area, kind like a back yard, with lots of cool graffiti! Still haven’t gotten the pics from Therése and Michan though… *evil eye*
Anyway, there was almost no qeue outside and since we’d probably go with Therése to meet up someone from EMI later we didn’t really bother to keep a spot. Having wandered around looking at the building, meeting some jamaican guy and wondered why it said lounge on a brick wall, we went to the store to buy some lunch and just chill.

Later we met up with the guy from EMI, Bollnäs-Martin and someone (Mari) from Bandit Gothenburg, and the two winners of the contest to come and see the band in Germany. They were eating out, but since we’d already eaten we only had some drinks. Really nice 🙂

At the restaurant

After that, it was time for the gig.. Pics will come in a separate post later 🙂
Hung back for the opening act which wasn’t very interesting… good sound, but not for warming up the crowd. The me and Michan managed to get some really good places about 15-20m from the stage. They began with A Beautiful Lie and you stand there and can’t help but to wonder why you do this. Why spend that much money and time on a showcase gig?  The Attack kicks in and you realise 😀 The playes for about an hour and the songs from the new album were really good live!

After the gig Therése went to the meet & greet while we went around looking for where the signing was supposed to be.. Turned out that the qeue for that was outside and it seemed like everyone at the gig was going to line up. So instead, when Therése was done, we went to the supermarket for bread, garlic cream cheese, vodka and orange juice. That is, almost the exact same thing as breakfast. Went back to the venue and had a little picnic then stood last in line for the signing.. (or almost last) being a bit tipsy, I got the most awesome idea!…and here it is 😀

Most awesome bread.

Also got my ticket signed, to have something that wouldn’t mould away, haha. Then we started to make our way home.. A VERY roundabout way home.. Including walking in the wrong direction to find a drum & bass club that turned out to be the day after, posing with a graffitti chicken, singing Plan Three and My Passion songs (links further down) Failing miserably at singing, knocking down Therése with my chin, lying on the sidewalk for about an hour… posing on BMWs.. and finally.. actually getting home!
Michan fell asleep almost directly while me and Therése giggled… and giggled.. and giggled… feeling how everyone just got more and more mad… and then giggling because of that. But it was fun!

On the other hand, we were so tired saturday that we didn’t really do anything except get to the airport.. and the get home.. Haha we were woken up half an hours after check-out time at the hostel.. Pretty awkward..

Going home...

We will definately be back someday!

Awesome

Berlin was so great you can’t even imagine!

Otherwise I thought my first post when I got home would be happy, but I’m just pissed off and sad. Fuck it.

Berlin!

I’m on my way off to Berlin to see 30 Seconds to Mars (friday) in… 45 MINUTES! O_O
Downing a cup of soup right, now, packing meanwhile and being overall hysterical… (4 hours of sleep, a can of tuna for breakfast and a huuuge cup of coffee is not good for you)

Won’t be writing for four days or so, so long suckers! 😀

Listening to…

HURT

Going to study now.. that is, just write some shit down and send in and hopefully I’ll at least not fail the course. Found a test yesterday that I had no idea we were supposed to do, so did that without any studying before at all. But hopefully it went okay.

Trying not to think about all the fucking stuff I have to do. Three english assignments, find some articles for social sciences tomorrow, wash up and pack a bag for germany… E-mail my teacher… argh
But at least, I’m listening to good music. Doesn’t make me happy, but it’s beautiful.

Screaming Our Sins

Clips from all the songs (except Triggers, since apparently you can only have 10songs up) from Plan Threes debut album Screaming Our Sins are now up on myspace! Freakshow sounds amazing, Whatever the Reason I already KNOW is amazing… Can’t wait ’til Sunday when they will be supporting MEW in Gothenburg. And they’ll bring the album with them to sell as well 😀 Ordinary release date is November 25th.

SWEDEN

YES, 30 Seconds to Mars will be playing at Arenan in Stockholm 10th of Mars.
Tickets will be released 20th November through eventim.se
325SEK

😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

I will have no money this spring… Not that I expected it, I just didn’t expect to know I wouldn’t so soon. Because of course I can’t only see them in Stockholm. It will probably be Copenhagen and Helsinki as well. Not only to see the band, but to meet all the amazing fans 🙂 The big echelon family. Helsinki is fucking expensive though. I mean.. 46€ + service fee? Come ON… Really, really looking forward to seeing them in Copenhagen though. KB Hallen..
Copenhagen rocks!

Bandit

Yeah okay, so I’m actually going to link you to my friends blog, because she had the only camera…
