I’m still off guitar playing though and can’t wait to get back. This has been a frustrating experience to put it mildly ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

How To Be Evil In 2017.

Standard

A little while ago I came across a “scandal” that was creating quite a buzz over in Norway. The online frenzy had been caused by ย a commercial, launched by a Norwegian weapon manufacturer. The company in question had teamed up with the national ski jumping ย team creating a poster depicting the athletes with a Norwegian flag waving in the wind.

This created a social media “backlash” since the “national romantic” picture could resemble “Nazi” propaganda according to critics. A representative for the company even bothered to officially apologise claiming that they only saw “proud ski jumpers & the Norwegian flag” but that they would never use such an ad again….(here is the story)

Yes…you read that right…I’m guessing that one of the reasons for the backlash was the fact that all of the athletes were white. You see an all-ethnic-Norwegian line-up, looking towards the sky, with the “evil” flag in the background. This of course looks nationalistic and has to be suppressed. I’m willing to bet that the ad would have been welcomed with open arms if the girl in the front was wearing a hijab. But alas, only Norwegians are in this picture featuring representatives of Norwegian sportsmanship ย so of course this is offensive………..

Everyone knows that a national team is only good if the majority are immigrants so that they don’t really represent how an ethnicity/nation would actually perform internationally…. A good team, just like the military has to reflect what is politically correct, so I have to say that I’m amazed at the fact that a quota hasn’t been forced upon the ski jumping team as the absence of such measures must surely be racist….

I’ve previously mentioned “national romanticism” in my “Identity”ย entry, as this movement was very important to Norwegian culture as we had just gained our independence from Sweden. This movement emphasised and celebrated everything Norwegian, as we took our power back.

Now though, regardless of its contribution, the mainstream do everything in their power to destroy it, in a desperate attempt to create the “new Norway” where being Norwegian is not an ethnicity anymore and where the Norwegian flag only counts if an imam is waving it…if a blond Norwegian waves it I bet it would be very “nazi-ish.”

There was a debate raging some years ago about whether or not it was wrong that Norwegians were waiving Norwegian flags on Norway’s Constitution/National Day as this was offensive to outspoken Muslims.

Yes I repeat…it was offensive to wave only Norwegian flags on Norway’s National Day.

Norway is only Norway if anything or anyone can be Norwegian….including the flag.

So a Chinese dish is as everyone knows very Norwegian, a mosque is totally viking, a turban wearing Sikh is the epitome of Norwegianness, in fact everyone knows that it is very “Nazi-ish” to be white and live in Norway or any other Scandinavian country…

Openness is the new shared European value, which means that there really is no culture anywhere at all, as anything goes. The only cultural identity is no identity at all or actual cultural appropriation.

In this spirit Sweden has apparently spent or is going to spend ย  1,5 million Swedish Kroners of taxpayers money to build a camel centre…..as everyone knows camels are very Scandinavian, so of course it makes sense that you would go to Sweden to pet them. Muslims are for some strange reason feeling insulted as the initiative is meant for them!ย I have truly no idea as to why they would feel that a camel zoo in Sweden is ridiculous…(when I first heard of this I thought it was a joke…a part of me still want to believe that…)

This ties in with some other articlesย  I came across where a certain Eastern-European leader is described as disgusting. Why is he disgusting? Because he is an actual nationalist…and everyone knows that the number one way to make enemies in the current year is to be European, proud of your country and waving your flag while singing your national anthem…..

Bombshell. A must read for anyone who cares about Europe.

Standard

Ehh…ok. People. Anyone who might bump into my blog.
Here is an email that Podesta received, leaked by wikileaks. This shows that the political elite are aware of what is going on…even though they try to cover it up and throw anyone who whistle-blows under the bus…Bombshell…..ย if you are going to read anything today and your time is limited then please pick the email I just linked to…

This is apparently news in Norway….this Imam is super famous so no news here in terms of him being a muslim extremist…in terms of his talk about “honour” it just makes me think of the tv-show “Vikings”…don’t get me wrong I’m not excusing this at all…it just displays the divide between those who are civilised and those who are not. The division between high culture and well….I’m not quite sure what to call the other…make of it what you want:ย Diversity Is Our Strength!

More from Sweden-stan and their police force trying to do their job….makes me think of South side Chicago…I find it awkward if those who are in law enforcement/intelligence don’t become increasingly radical in their views….if you’ve decided that you want to dedicate your life to protecting your country….then how can you not become gradually disillusioned when faced with this? As I said….countries that have to be held together by “hate speech” laws are not particularly well-functioning nations…mark my words..

More racist propaganda…..sad that people will buy into narratives like these. The entitlement culture and especially the now accepted disdain displayed towards “whites” is alarming. Especially when this “disdain” is fuelled by nothing but an “inferiority complex.” How else can it be explained? I find this type of propaganda offensive and deeply worrying. If you come from a disadvantaged country/culture why not be honest about this? Last time I checked my country was broke before we found oil, we’ve been occupied in the past, we’ve been a colony and we were “badass”, when we were running around looting other people’s stuff…acting like barbarians… Vikings were adventurous for sure and certainly weren’t stupid, but they weren’t exactly the Romans…. So….why run around trying to steal other people’s accomplishments? Wouldn’t it look ridiculous if Norwegians were trying to hijack Swedish or Danish breakthroughs? * I would also love to add, that the Nazis actually believed that they descended from super-humans apparently and that certain neo-pagans subscribe to the belief that Scandinavia was awesome until Christianity came and ruined everything* Fake narratives much?

Here is an article questioning Trump’s sanity. I found this over at Psychology today. The political divide is amazing really. Why is it so that anyone who supports Trump instantly is branded an idiot? When you see the footage that is currently circulating of anti-Trump protesters etc; they don’t look particularly bright to be honest. Considering how un-educated artists normally are as well, I find it interesting that anyone who supported super-corrupt Hillary Clinton apparently displayed superior judgement. It is rather strange.

I maintain that the choice in today’s current political climate stands between those who are supportive of the west and those who are not.
It can’t possibly be claimed to be right if western leaders champion and/or put other people before their own? It must be possible to be proud of your country and heritage without being labeled a redneck. Anyway, here is the article. It’s funny how the people who wrote this and also a lot of those who have commented say that they are worried about the future of their country and their children. These are precisely the reasons as to why people voted for Trump ๐Ÿ˜€ Mark my words!ย Trump’s Sanity…

Here you got an experiment concerning everyday “sexism” that women face when they deal with clients…it reminds me of a shocking page I came across in 2015, which collected stories from women who had been harassed by men if they rejected them. Quite disturbing really…ย Everyday Sexism…

Katie Hopkins…occasionally funny…more than not unbearable in her viciousness, has been hurt where it matters. People are celebrating on social media…is that the appropriate thing to do though? I have to say I’ve been triggered by her official statements in the past, but then again I also stopped following Ricky Gervais. Are Brits super rude or can it just be laughed off as the general attitude/humour. Regardless I can’t help but feel a bit sorry for the Hopkins…sucks when you get a bill like this! ๐Ÿ˜ฎย Hopkins In Trouble…

Music Update.

Standard

Hey there to my blog subscribers! So today I’m sharing what I already shared on my Instagram which is that I’m off guitar playing for 6 weeks (!) due to straining/snapping something in my shoulder… (due to crazy guitar playing)

I heard a sound coming from my shoulder area when it happened and couldn’t even pull a sweater over my head. I was pretty much in constant pain for 17 days before it finally started to ease off….

I find it interesting how an injury presents itself eventually when you reach and try to maintain the “perfect form”… because ironically this means that you have to “get back into shape” again after having a break….there’s probably a reason as to why I’m the only guitarist doing what I’m doing….

I will go back to my previous approach to things, with a little updated twist….I used to have a membership in a running club (Iโ€™ve joined a torture club.)ย and all of these runners were always plotting how to work towards a peak performance by constantly altering and updating their exercise regiment, which is precisely what I do as well when it comes to a certain thing I’m doing ๐Ÿ˜›

Which has made me wonder if I should write a guitar book to share my experience as nobody else has done what I’ve done on the guitar. Recording the impossible, having no references and nobody to look to, playing the impossible live on a proper stage, dealing with deadlines, dealing with injuries, picking the right songs, saying yes to the wrong songs, playing with no metronome – only feel, being chased by backing tracks, finding the right tone, having the wrong equipment, finding beauty and ultimately get involved with what I just was involved with… which has opened up a whole new way of looking at a certain genre… in terms of how things can be creatively approached.

One thing is for certain and that is that creativity always finds a way, always finds a solution because creative minds never rests unless forced to.

So as I’ve been laying here in pain I’ve re-arranged a whole lot of songs mentally as well as pretty much “finalising” my vocal training after all these years. I can now sing what I always wanted to sing and have been asking myself: what comes next when I know all these pieces that are meant for my voice type?

There is no next unless I one day can write or co-write something entirely new for voice, preferably in Norwegian. Which certainly sounds ambitious at the moment as I’m not a composer as of now but rather a songwriter.

Anyway, keep an eye on my blog and my social media for updates as I’m releasing new music soon! Get to hear the reason for my pain ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

As you can see…I’ve done my best to gain some pounds……because that’s what you do when you can’t play….I have every intention to contribute to NHS’s outrageous expenses in relation to obesity. So I’m doing my best to worsen their statistics as one does.

I’ve also kept busy trying to turn my brother into a meme….sadly that was not successful… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ or at least for now….

Most In-Depth Interview Ever, PERIOD.

Standard

Hi there people ๐Ÿ™‚ Today I’m sharing an interview that I recently ย did with a metal blog ๐Ÿ™‚

If you are curious about my upbringing, my take on politics and my music you can checkย it out ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the first interview I’ve ever done regarding my blog!

I have to say that the last 2 interviews I’ve done were really fantastic.

Tom Serviceย proved that great journalism still exists as he knew everything about what I was doing, he did not mention the blog though but he certainly had a great overview and an impressive knowledge of music.

Then enters Mo from Metal Bulletin Zine over in Seattle USA who sent me the most personal questions I’ve received so far from any music journalist!

I’m guessing that these might be questions that those reading my blog would like to ask me.

If you want to read the most politically incorrect interview I’ve done so far you can read itย right HERE!!!!!

Writing With One Hand….

Standard

Yes…I was planning on posting quite a lot of updates these past weeks but I’ve experienced some troubles with my shoulder so I’m waiting for that to improve :/

Needless to say there has been a lot to think about lately in terms of news … which I address further down in my entry!

I was personally very happy yesterday when I saw that my lyric book reached bestseller status on Amazon ๐Ÿ™‚ Becoming my second release (that I’m aware of) to experience such a thing. Musically I’ve been busy plotting what to do next with my “secret project” which won’t remain secret for much longer…..I will reveal more details concerning that one very soon…get ready for your minds to be blown….one way or the other….in not too long!

I’ve been reading more books about mindfulness….which is becoming a bit tiring at this point ๐Ÿ˜› I will write some reviews about that next week….probably.

In terms of the world…

Shit is hitting the fan when it comes to our shared environment…not that long ago there was a “smog” warning in London as the air was just as bad or worse (can’t remember which one) than Beijing…yes you read that right….there’s also ย been food rations in the UK from supermarkets as there’s been bad crops in the south…

Things are set to get interesting when people realise that it is NOT natural to have access to anything that you want regardless of the seasons. Brace yourself for the “apocalypse” as climate change kicks in or move out to the countryside, which is probably the smartest thing to do.ย Grow your own veggies!!!!!!

Paris is on fire. Apparently this is nothing new….Sweden is lost, I guess France is next and then….Germany?ย Thanks a lot to our amazing leaders!

Meanwhile in Eastern-Europe…..ย โ†“

asotthalom

Hmmm…..So on one side you got idiotic so-called European leaders…who deny that anything is wrong while their countries are burning….areas that are no-go zones for native Europeans….culture clashes making life intolerable for some ethnic Europeans and ย police officers who give up as the politically correct establishment won’t let them do their job.

(READ THIS:ย Swedish Whistle Blower….ย you can find more articles like these btw. It is a real story).

Then on the other hand you got Eastern-Europeans who are neither interested in Russia nor “Kebab” kicking their ass…even putting up a sign like the one above…of course the sign is very offensive…but if the choice stands between siding with militant west-hating supremacists muslims backed by self-hating western ideological lunatics….I guess you don’t have much choice ? Or? Hmmm….I hope that things can be sorted out peacefully…that’s the issue…what can be done? You cannot allow haters to stay in your country…but how do you identify who is the enemy and who is not? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ :/

I’m really and truly wondering who stands to benefit from the new “European-conflict,” I mean the foundation upon which individual civil wars within our continent can emerge has been created. But who is behind this? And who wins?

IMG_5805

Irreparable damage has already been done. Heard about the Chinese immigrants who get targeted by muslim supremacists in France? Or Jews fleeing back to Israel? Things are not alright and they haven’t been for a long time. In fact….tensions are only escalating thanks to disrespectful, ungrateful supremacists cheered on by weird, self-hating Europeans. Don’t ask me why people are celebrating hate towards their own. It’s a bizarre situation. Let me add….a VERY bizarre situation

Over to a country where things might become … great again ๐Ÿ˜›

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Joy Villa’s dress at the Grammys! Funny enough I had actually been thinking about how cool it would have been to get a red MAGA dress to wear at a red carpet event, so imagine my shock when I saw an artist actually doing this! Another example of how artists seem to tap into the same “idea centre.” I thought Joy Villa was extremely brave and applaud her move. I thought it was inspiring and nothing short of iconic!

I also saw Donald Trump’s epic press conference and couldn’t believe my ears. I’m in awe over the fact that he fights back and keep the course which he set out on during his campaign. I can’t believe I’m witnessing what I’m witnessing. I got my fingers crossed that future European leaders will be just as badass! Donald Trump is incredible. If in doubt then take the time to actually check him out!

“Sean Spicer’s press briefings” is the most watched “show” when it comes to day-time TV in America. I’m telling you…politics is cool all of a sudden. Press briefings are pop! I was going to make a ” Top Sean Spicer Moments” last week, now that I know how pop he is I guess I’ll be en-vogue for a change ๐Ÿ˜› I’m an absolute fan of the most badass press secretary ever. Period.

sean-spicer-period

So…my apologies to those who disagree with me politically…but I just can’t stand by and cover up nor justify how anti-western the so-called “left” has become. I cannot disrespect my ancestors nor young members of my family by supporting those who wish to destroy us. Literally. We have reached a point where you are either pro-west or anti-west. I will never align myself with those who seek to destroy my native country, my country of residency or any of the countries that I’ve lived in. There is really no such thing as “Europeans” yet I actually identify myself as such in a way … due to where and how I have lived and out of admiration, solidarity and love. What’s in the best interest of Europeans, independently and together will always be important to me. The same can be said of the USA. We have to look after what is “ours.”
