Interesting discussion. I've had it sometimes with myself.

"Hmm. If Internet shuts down and my big top-of-the-line/7 Harddrives, 21" monitor etc computer crashes, should I buy a new one? Or just stick to my old laptop for photoediting, the only thing I just can't do with paper and pencil (letters), or board-games (online games) or going to the library and read (surfing the 'net)."

Also, consider all the work one have to put into computers for them to work and all the time needed to learn how to use them properly. I have one computer, my dad one and my brother-in-law one. I have to maintain 3 PC's, teach mom/dad, sis/Conny/2 kids, and myself how to use a whole bunch of programs etc...
So much wasted time when I look back sometimes...

Sure, computers are helpful in many ways, but sometimes I just want to throw them away...

I was a late bloomer, but that doesn't mean I didn't know what sex was as a teenager. It's always going to happen, allowed or not. So proper information about condoms and such, preferably by someone kids listen to, (NOT teachers and parents), ought to help.

Basically say it:
"We don't care if you're 16/13/19, if you don't want a kid already, use protection. And enjoy yourselfs..."

Right?

Now I've been looking around a but can't find any dates, or previous tours etc.
There were plenty at the old site. Maybe it'll come eventually, but the sooner the better.

New about the next tour is what got me here. So others looking around probably wonder the same thing?

And acting way ahead of the future, if there's a concert in Copenhagen I sure hope to meet some of you there.

Or Stockholm, but I don't wanna go there...

Downloading and burning CD's is something new to the world. Five-six years is nothing if one look at how long media has been around. (forever)

Digital media have changed how we view right and wrong, perhaps only temporary until the law put its feet down, but changed it has.

Now I'm not denying downloading for me and my family, trying to make nice covers and writing "nice" on the CD-R's. It's just never felt OK. Why? Sure, the music is exactly the same, I can't hear the difference.
It's just the homemade CD's...!

The moral part have only recently taking over, after a few concerts and losing my own job. It's their job I'm denying them pay for - the music.

So, when it becomes illegal here in Sweden too, it's not now, and the risk of large fines rise, I'll probably stop. It will also mean one more thing:

I'm NOT going to buy a lot of CD's. I didn't before. I'll just stick to the few proven artists I know.

Anyway, this discussion have probably been up on the old forum, so i hope i'm not repeating too much....

and yes, if Heather had a PayPal account i'd transfer 50 euros at once, I owe her that...
and, i would still buy the CD's....

1. "Parents have a right to decide what their children see on television and no one should deny them that right," said Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who introduced the bill in the House.


2. "Fortunately, technology exists that shields children from violence, sex, and profanity. It is the electronic equivalent of fast-forwarding over unwanted content."


1. Don't watch the "media"!

2. Don't watch the movie! (since it has content that is bad, the whole movie have to be bad...)

If you say it fast it's:

go'natt

and if you actually care, you add:

Sov gott. (sleep well)

Out of time with Denzel Washington. It didn't take long to figure out what was happening.

Still, a good movie.

That girl Eva Mendez should make more movies...
