J as in Jean-Michel Jarre | #blog26 #wishlist

As I already have written in the warm-up of this blog challenge (in Swedish), which started June 26 on my 50th birthday, some of you might already know what would show up in “J” in my A to Z Wishlist. Jean-Michel Jarre – The Live Experience! I got introduced to Jean-Michel Jarre early on in my own personal “musical biography”. My uncle was a hardcore music addict as me, and I thank him for discovering alot of music during my upbringing. Jean-Michel Jarre was one of his findings in his search for the new and pioneering. 1976, the Jarre album…

E as in Extra Birthdays | #blog26 #wishlist

Yesterday we had a visit from our dear friend Hanna Ericsson! And I got an Extra Birthday celebration! She had the intention to join us on the very day, Sunday, but couldn’t come. So there we were, celebrating Wednesday as an Extra Birthday! I got a present, Hyperbole and Half by Allie Brosh, an Internet Sensation. From the little I read so far – HILARIOUSLY GREAT! Thank you, Hanna! We have 365 (or 366 as this year) days per year – to just pick some and celebrate just the fact that someone is born, lives and means deeply so much…

D as in Depeche Mode | #blog26 #wishlist

The blog challenge, beginning June 26, 2016, my 50th birthday, con’t. The ABC basics – check. As simple as 123? Maybe :). Aikido, Birthdays, Core. Enter – D! Musical experiences, bucket list, following the Grand Theme “Music For Health”. Depeche Mode! This is irrational, I agree. Not. Seen. Them. Yet! I have followed their music since the Just Can’t Get Enough days. From the very beginning! And I didn’t see them, live, back then. So. Modern times? Their last tour was 2013/14, passing Sweden. And they did headline Arvikafestivalen, 2009. No, no, no. Not! Well, I hope to see them…

Fokus, Distraktioner och Det Viktiga | #blog366 #ProjectThursday

Click to view video. Mika leker med en träkula. Kasta prick. Jag bryter för det viktiga. Mika. Jag stod och processade önskelistan, som jag berättade om igår och i förrgår. En bildserie, från hela lilla händelseflödet. Alla bilder. Oredigerat. Ingen bild bortvald. De är där. Alla åtta. Filterlöst, äkta, naket. En nackdel. Det är tyst. Vad är en bildsekvens utan ljud? Träkulor låter när de kastas prick med. Ljud, musik, ljudlandskap. Och musikupplevelser. Högt på önskelistan, de är. Ni som såg smygtitten på hur långt önskelistan har kommit, vet redan. Bortom Kraftwerk, är Jean-Michel Jarre osedd, live. Oxygéne i mitt…

Popcorn (instrumental) – A #MikaFirsties – At Folkparken, Norrköping – Today | #blogg100 #MikaTheHero

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popcorn_%28instrumental%29?wprov=sfla1 In this environment. Here we are. Standing tall. Dance is already in place. Walking, commencing countdown. Count the words in these images. Here, he is. Fill in the blanks. You read the two pic animation, yes? A PS. Please take some time to find the origins and roots of one of the most important songs to popularize, what can be called “electronic music”. Popcorn was played in the background, yes. And it instantly hit the spirit of Mika. And the event for older kids that took place there as well. So – listen! The original creator hasn’t got the…

Princepiration | #blogg100 #DayPlayList

The first 24 hours of the reaction phase of the message of the world loss of Prince Rogers Nelson has passed. I will put deeper words, onwards, if possible, in what way Prince, what he stood for, and what the vaults filled with his golden creations – now left behind in his legacy – meant for me during my sensitive eighties. Now, leaving you today’s playlist on Spotify (which at large was rolling as a YouTube chromecasted in our living room, simultaneously added). No Prince on Spotify, greater parts are what feels inspired Prince, and some associations coming from the…

Some snapshots from the slides above; “Yay, mommy and daddy, ME…

Ängslighet? | #blogg29 [Ä] #MikaTheHero #SöndagsMeditation

Click to view video. I. “Det är ingen konst att va modig om man inte är rädd.” Tove Jansson. Mumindal. ”Det finns saker man måste göra, även om det är farligt. Annars är man ingen människa utan bara en liten lort.” Skorpan och Jonatan. Bröderna Lejonhjärta. Körsbärsdal. Astrid Lindgren. Fantasi. Bokgenrer? Fantasy? II. Mika har fyllt månad. Nio ingefäriga, förlåt, ungefärliga månvarv – vi har ju hittat på ett sätt att hålla oss upptagna att räkna till tolv för att komma till ett. Ett praktiskt verktyg, det där med tidemätningsgrejor. Mika lyckligt ovetande om tidverktygande och det passerade dået är…

Citronkryddor? | #blogg24 #nyord

Att vara småbarnsförälder är intensivt nog i sig. Att dessutom Mika som barn med medfött hjärtfel (sök på #MikaTheHero här på min blogg och webben i stort för berättelserna) har haft oerhört frekventa besök på sjukhus sätter vardagsvillkoren under oerhört stor press. Imorgon ska Mika läggas in för att sätta in en ny medicin mot hjärtsvikt under övervakning på avdelning under ett dygn fredag-lördag. Nåväl. Lagas det middag så är det både för bordet och matlådorna. Det brukar ju heta att man skall krydda tillvaron med det lilla extra i vardagen. Idag när jag lagade en veggiefärsgryta med quorn, kidneybönor…
