About Me

I'm not a bad person, I don't drink and I don't kill.
I've got no evil habits, and I probably never will.
I don't sing like Elvis Presley, I can't dance like Fred Astaire.
But there's one thing in my favor, I'm a millionaire.

Well, those words might not be entirely true and also they might not even be my own words, but rather Dr Hook & The Medicine Show's. But it's a fun song.

Interests

I'm a not very normal person who likes to do quite normal things, like eating, drinking, sleeping, laughing, dancing, walking, talking, singing, playing, feeling, listening, understanding and getting lost.

Music, Movies, and Books

My span of attention is kind of short, so I'm really bad at reading books. But some great books I've managed to read, some of them more than once, are Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, Tobacco Road by Erskine Caldwell, On the Road by Jack Kerouac and the Swedish books Tårtgeneralen by Fredrik&Filip and Tandooriälgen by Zac O'Yeah.

Sadly, my span of attention is also keeping me from watching a lot of movies. However, Don's Plum, American Hustle, Cannibal Holocaust and the Swedish Tjuvheder, Fucking Åmål, Det Nya Landet and Tillsammans are amazing.

But I do listen to a lot of music. Either with my ears or just inside my head. Some great songs I've listened a lot to recently are Frank Sinatra - That's Life, Tami Tamaki - Never loved this hard this fast before, Danava - Maudie Shook, Paul Simon - Still crazy after all these years, Faithless - Insomnia, Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris - We'll sweep out the ashes in the morning, Cancerslug - Sassy for Satan, Hoola Bandoola Band - Hemmet, Soko - I'll kill her, King Crimson - Epitaph, Norah Jones - Turn me on, Pink Floyd - Shine on you crazy diamond, Sabbath Assembly - Hymn of consecration, De Lyckliga Kompisarna - Ishockeyfrisyr, Beatles - A day in the life, Tove Lo - Stay high (Hippie sabotage remix), The Misfits - Skulls, Purson - The Contract, Les Paul & Mary Ford - Tennessee Waltz, Kvelertak - Kvelertak, Rare Bird - Beautiful Scarlet, Cornelis Vreeswijk - Horoskopvisa. Well, I can listen to practically any genre, and I know there's loads of great soul, motown, electronica, jazz and other stuff out there, but I'm really bad at writing down and remembering what I bump into musically.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Well, myself. I can be quite good about sharing thoughts and stories. And if you're lucky I will manage to do the whole couch request -> reference thingy right, and it will look good on your profile. Well, maybe I'd rather say 'if I'm lucky' since the statistics on my profile look kind of shitty at the moment.
