Music Facts – Not Serious (But worth a look)


Music Facts

1 : To find out if you like/love a song, it`s easy. If you imagine/daydreams that you play with the band in a concert, or imagine that you sing that song in a Idol session in front of a jury.

2 : If a song transpose a key up during the song, means that the producer admits the song is boring. Bad sign.

Will update this more if I come up with some more funny facts :-)

Visual Profile – Soundcloud


Yesterday I did read a blog post from Soundcloud : http://blog.soundcloud.com/

I have for 3 years now asked for a visual profile roll-out to the public. Not just for the “Big” artist`s and bands. Always got a message: “We are looking into rolling this out”

So, it`s been in beta now for 3 years, and they decide to roll it out…BUT…It is in a premium package of course (Only available for U.S) . Sad story that they for these 3 years did not manage to roll it out to all at once.

But what is the problem in rolling out only the visual profile at least to the Unlimited Pro users? I do not think you have to be living in the U.S to have a visual profile, do you? This will make a huge gap with A versus B artist`s on Soundcloud, and also U.S bands versus others.

I have been a proud member of Soundcloud now for 3 years, and always been a unlimited pro user. Do we not deserve a visual profile now that it`s actually is rolling out on the premium package?

I am upset yes! Let us non U.S. citizens now at least get a visual profile, becide that premium package, untill we get that options too. Waited now for 3 years, will it be 3 more years?

Every member on Soundcloud that reads this, should share it everywhere, and let the Soundcloud team know about this. We are equal members to the big stars, and without us Soundcloud would be nothing!

Let us get the visual profile now!

My Favourite Series – Up to Date


Here is my top 3 series on Netflix and HBO (so far).

1. Breaking Bad

Nothing beats this! It is the best ever. My life have never gone that fast before. Could sit for 16 hours and watch this, without looking at the clock one time. Superior number one!

2. The Walking Dead

Same as number 1, but was put here since I had to watch the clock one time during the 4 seasons. LOL.

3. Trailer Park Boys

This really has amazing characters. Love it. The drawback is that I actually was bored in between, but not so often.

 

I will not put any more of the series in here, cause no of them has reached the 4th place yet, or broken into top 3. Will update it regurarly.

Right now I am watching “Games og Thrones”. Watched season 1, and are onto season 2 now. Dissapointed so far. I hope the characters evolves during the next 3 seasons. Also on the dissapointing list are “4400” and “Arrested Development”.

At the end I will recommend 2 movies. “Wrong Cops” and “Wrong” . Amazing movies with strong characters all over. So funny!

Here is a scene from the movie “Wrong Cops” :

Enjoy :-) !

Til familien Stoltenberg – In Norwegian


Hei kjære Jens Stoltenberg.

Jeg så akkurat klippet hvor du talte i Nini`s begravelse, og deler sorgen med deg. Det tror jeg hele Norge gjør. Jeg, en mann på 42 år, klarte ikke og holde tårene tilbake. Har aldri sett en mer “menneskelig” profilert familie enn familien Stoltenberg. Deg selv, Thorvald og Nini. Hver gang jeg ser Dere på skjermen så utstråler Dere en vanvittig varme og medmenneskelighet. Du har opplevd mye sterkt, med dødsfall. Tenker da på Nini, Utøya, din Mor, og enda så ser jeg en utrolig styrke hos deg. Jeg mistet selv min Mor og min Far i ungdomsårene, så vet alt om hvilken sorg dette medfører. Moren min døde i 1996, og i dag blusset min sorg opp igjen, etter og ha sett både din, Camilla og Thorvald sin tale. Men som Thorvald sier “Sorgen skal ikke forsvinne, det er en fin ting” . Det tar jeg med meg som et godt visdomsord fra en kraftfull mann.

Jeg er ikke en fan av Arbeiderpartiet, men tror jeg blir det nå. Når jeg ser hvordan dagens regjering vil hardkjøre de svake i samfunnet som blant annet sliter med psykologiske lidelser.

Du er min helt og ønsker deg lykke til i jobben som Nato toppsjef! Jeg vet du vil lykkes!

Til slutt vil jeg dele en sang med deg som vi spilte inn for ca 1 måned siden. Den er fra uken før min Mor døde, da vi satt ved middagsbordet og diskuterte at den som dør først må gi et tegn på at det finnes noe etter døden. Den heter “Angels” og handler også om at den dagen vi dør skal englene ta i mot oss med åpne armer, og på vei til himmelporten går vi på en vei av gull. Jeg tror Nini er på vei til den porten nå.

Music from Norway – Jenny`s Vision Project


Originally posted on World Music - the Music Journey:

About one year ago, Jenny`s Vision Project contacted us.  They are a pop ballad music project from Norway, started in 1991. But they went different paths and Øivind Kristian Stavik invested in a home studio in 2012. Today I found their old post and saw that they released many new songs. Listen to their nice piece “The Last Good Kiss”:

Listen to their nice song “The Greatest Faith with vocals” too!
