Singles inferno (Netflix)

So, one show I ended the pasted weekend was the “Singles Inferno”, some kind of dating show from South Korea, and I will most likely sound like a huge piece of shit now but are they pulling our legs?

First, and this is of course not a choice, it’s biology, but when the guys and girls on the Inferno island I can’t see who is who, they look 100% the same. The girls more than the guys cause they are all nipped and tucked and look 100% the same.

Next thing is that one of the girls is the most unpleasant person ever, and all the guys try to date her? Why?

I won’t say she looks like a troll, but she is seriously the less attractive girl on the island, mean and spoiled as hell and the guys talk about her like she is the best thing since ice cream. Korean ideals is very very different from ours for sure. Both what beauty is as well as how a nice person behaves.

The guys then, what makes me most surprised there is that he who look like he is 12 years old is the oldest one… what is that about?

OK enough about that, so do not forget:

The reason for boosters is that the batteries in the chip only last for 4 months

“8 Rue de l’Humanite”

“Stuck together” or the French original title “8 Rue de l’Humanite” is now on Netflix and what to say? For Eurovision fans you find Tom Leeb, and a group of other famous French actors, or not famous as well.

And why am I pushing for it? Is it that good? Not really, but it is 90 minutes of family entertainment. You have jokes for grown ups, slap stick for kids etc etc.

It is a small bagatelle worth watching when your Netflix alternatives is no more – and I’m there right now. Seriously seen everything that interest me the slightest.

Another thing! I finally downloaded Amanda Lears new album, released on the 22nd of October 2021, “Tuberose”.

“Tuberose” Amanda Lear, album 2021. Album cover photo.

When I bought my first Amanda Lear album in 1977 (or.. bought? I needed to put it on my Christmas list, and Santa listened even if the top less poster inside was a bit too much according to some people), who would even think that in 2021 she still release records. In this case, no, not another Disco one, this is very lounge, and very still. Very nice to be honest, even if it’s not a song you put on at your next party. The day after the party though…, morning, coffee, wrapped in a warm fluffy cosy robe and let Amanda take care of your hangover. And the album cover is amazing.

All for today

I wonder…

Sometimes I wonder, I wonder if Annie Lööf took a psychology examination, what would be the outcome? Phsychopath? Narcistic disorder? Full blown maniac?

I wonder when the world will see that the Green party movement globally is like a huge sect, and believe me, I will not be surprised if we soon find them in the jungle drinking cyanide.

I wonder when people will understand that Greta not write her blogs, speeches, Tweets herself… And actually see that the speechwriters is very active in antifa.

But all the above is I wonder on a large scale, and there are more, so much more. So why think about things you can’t influence and instead wonder over things around your own person.

I don’t know, seriously, if my co-workers forget that I’m not in their age at all. I am in the same age as most of their parents, who they are worried about cause they are “older”. I am in the same age that, in some parts of the world, is the presumed life expectancy.

Add to the above that it seems like they forget that I have a serious heart condition which don’t impact my work per se, but there are things that make stuff tougher. And my glyceryltrinitrat spray, who I always mention is there when new people arrive, seems to be forgotten an hour or two after the introduction of it.

That I can pop a vein within a minute, or in 5 years time is kind of forgotten (or ignored).

I know this post is very much me me me, almost Annie Lööf ego, but I am amazed how stuff is just forgotten by people you meet more or less daily. I mean… Do I look like a healthy 30 years old? NO!

So with all the above taken into account, add the kidney problem, I can say I am happy to not have one sick day as long as I have worked for my current employer, and only 1 day in 2013 and 21.5 in 2014 after the heart failure. Looking around me I must say that outcome is not too bad.

OK, no more about it, just needed to ventilate, I binge watch too much “Chicago Med” at the moment.

This is Pop

First of all I like to push for the Netflix series “This is Pop” – actually really good. And of course for people in France, who think I am strange, episode 3 about the Swedish music wonder.

Not only a fantastic story about the Cheiron studios in the 90s but also explains a lot why Swedes in social situations are plain Swedish and behave like we do. Even I got an epiphany from it.

But even more, the big news yesterday… Mylène Farmer will go on tour again. Ticket release in October 2021 for the shows in the summer 2023. So now my main goals will be to manage to buy tickets (only 2 shows advertised), and remember that 3 weeks of Mylène in 2019 sold out in a few hours (but then it was one venue for all Europe).

Even Geneva is on the tour plan so I guess I have to start to spread the world also for my colleagues in Switzerland. But back to the goals, get tickets (save the September paycheck to afford them) and stay alive until June 2023!

And also from yesterday, Financial Times, the UK reacted on the Governmental crisis in Sweden and did it in a very accurate way really…

But to be honest I have not seen the article in the Times, so I can’t verify it actually was in yesterdays edition. Why I’m not sure? Do a magazine like Financial Times misspell a name like this? Lofven? His name is Löfvèn – To not have 100% knowledge about å, ä and ö, I buy that, but when they write names they usually get things right…

In any case, true or not, it’s very accurate and true. But they missed the part to explain that his choice to bring the Green party in to the Government must be his mistake of a life time. It’s actually more them the Swedes want gone than Löfvèn (even if I am happy if both leaves). But he has a week to try to find a solution to stay and believe me they will try.

Oh God

The week started with me not doing the thing I was supposed to do. I did a lot of other tasks but the one thing that I actually needed to finish today, not so much. Its embarrassing really.

And the Corona thing continue, now its Austria, Greece and Copenhagen on the list over red marked countries in Norway. So the confused rules keep on going.

And in France we try to keep distance:

Picture from France24 and Bordeaux.

But the good news, new season of “Rita” on Netflix, evenings fixed for a few days.

Back home

As said before, working from home is both better and more effective but only when the technical side of things work.

Today I had some trouble with the connections so tasks added up and it ended a bit stressful, but still… Compere to sit in an open space office working from home is way better. It might be different if your working place provides you with your own office and a door to close.

Apart from that not much happen today, no need to go out and do any shopping so its been a complete day without pants. Or at least nothing else than sweatpants.

And remember, soon time for the Eurovision movie

Another mp3 Sunday

Another Sunday dedicated to new mp3 tags. It’s nowadays kind of my Sunday “enjoyment”. And hopefully someday in the future I will be satisfied with all the tags and stop invent some new info I must include in the tagging.

When done I will try to decide if I shall put all mp3s into the cloud. Most likely to then need to re tag again. A never ending story.

I hope, when my time is over, someone will take care of all the mp3s. Someone as much of a nerd as I am when it comes to my music library.

At the same time as my own tag factory is in work I watch TV series and I must say I fallen for the TV series “Instinct” and think I will start to watch “The Good Fight” (replaced “The good wife”) as well as “Bull”. But I can’t find where “Bull” is streamed. It’s not HBO or Netflix.

Yes I know, I might have bigger problems don’t I?

Take care, this last week locked in.

The Will Ferrell Eurovision movie soon here

2018 in June I posted this link and now its finally time, the Will Ferrell movie on Eurovision will be on Netflix in June 2020. A single with Will Ferrell & My Marianne (Molly Sandén) been released, “Volcano Man”, unfortunately its not long enough, only just under 2 minutes but it fits into the Eurovision concept. It actually sounds just like the Norwegian entry to Eurovision in 2019 by Keiino, “Spirit in the sky”.

At the moment the funniest thing ever is to remind the fans whom liked Keiino a lot in 2019 about the fact that the two songs remind of each other. As you know Keiino won the televote in 2019 but did not receive enough jury points to win. And the fans of “Spirit in the sky” still going on about this in social media. “The real winner of Eurovision”, “Norway was robbed” etc. The same guys (yes it is most guys) for some reason hate Will Ferrels song, so to make them really upset it is so much fun to talk about how alike the songs are… Try it…

Note: Only work on Eurovision / Keiino fans 🙂
