2010 – summary & predictions.

Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2010 by Sara Hammerzmith

It’s time for me to sum up my year and leave some predictions or something, So here it goes!

January
After four long years Wig Wams third album “Nonstop Rock n Roll” finally showed up, and we celebrated it by going to the releaseparty in Halden. This was also the month when I started renting Axa for the first time. I was also still interning in the stable.

February
On February, Stockholm Rock Out announced the best thing that would ever happen to me. Slaughter was confirmed for a gig in Sweden. I also did an interview with Gotthard and met the very nice person Leo Leoni! I also met Sofia for the first time, for REAL if you know what I mean.

March
In March nothing real spectacular happened, I did compete in a crossover competition with Axa but failed badly.

April
I printed my very own magazine featuring interviews with Hellcity 13(Mika), Show By SO. (Stala), Gotthard(Leo Leoni) and Wig Wam.  It was also in this month I got the devastating news that OF COURSE, Slaughter was too good to be true and had been cancelled. I had planned not going at all, until I won a Meet & Greet with Tigertailz!

May
Even though the crisis with the Vulcano, Stockholm Rock Out Part1 did a good try out, and succeded. I met the lovley Tigertails, or, Sarah Firebrand and all the rest, also met the lovley girl Ida! One week later it was time for me and Sofia to jump on the bus to see Lady Gaga and also meet Sara (Dreyra) and Elin! Lovley. But the happines didn’t stay long until we, May 16th, was told Ronnie James Dio had passed away. May was also the month for the Eurovision Song Contest and an amazing week in Oslo!

June
Sweden Rock took part, and it was a lovley festival with one of my favebands, Cinderella, playing. It didn’t end too well unfortuneatley, since I was robbed the last night.

July
I attended the Rockweekend festival with the very best Anna and judge death, I had sucha blast! I also attended the Extreme Horse Makeover.

August
In the Lordi world, this was the time most things happened. On August 3rd the new costumes were released, and it was well mixed feelings about that. Sonisphere happened too, which I attended to with Hanna and on the preparty with Crashdiet I hooked up with Sara and Elin again! One week later me and Sofia attended Crashdiet in Västerås and tied a bond stronger than ever. HEAT also announced their new singer which I wasn’t too pleased with, but I got over it. This was also when I started to hang out with Pucko again, my stupid iPod.

September
The high anticipation for Lordis new studioalbum “Babez For Breakfast” grew bigger and I got so pissed everyday I came home and it hadn’t arrived yet. I also attended Stockholm Rock Out part 2, where for the first time in 5 years, Wig Wam had a concert in Sweden. I also took a trip with Paula to Helsinki and Nosturi to have some breakfast with Lordi. Sofia and I went to the market and got ourselves some Reckless Love glasses and I also attended Sabatons concert in Karlstad.

October
It began pretty good with me being featured on Lordis website but else… This month sucked hard. At least the start. It began with on the 1st october, to be told, that Reckless Love had cancelled their performance at SRO part 3. I made us real sad, and the news about Show By SO. being in ESC hit us like a punch in the groin. Did it mean…? And yes it did. On October 4th we lost our dearest alienmanbeast, Kita, to the world of pop and glamour, and the day after, the singer of Gotthard was announced dead after being killed in a car accident. And the day after that, it was announced that the entire SRO part 3 was cancelled… Huh… Can you believe it? And no…. It doen’t stop there. The Crashdiet concert we were supposed to attend at the end of October was also cancelled. ALL IN THE SAME WEEK. How is it possible? Apparently it is. However, thing started to slowly turn over when me and Sofia instead had a nice shopping weekend in Stockholm.  On October 26 the new drummer was presented to us, Mr Otus, the mad butcher.

November
Thanks to the mental breakdown Monsterboard had, Me, Martine and Thomas bonded hard and this ended up to be an epic weekend in Oslo where we were doing all kind of things really. Somewhere here our plans to go to Hannover to see Lordi died, and in just a week, a trip to Paris and Trabendo was planned instead. I brought Martine, and Thomas was already down there, and this ended up being the most epic trip of the year. I met Ginny, Isa, Jasmin, Sofie, Maike and Marjolein and Burning Black and we ended up meeting Lordi (w.out Kita :'() and they played “My Heaven Is Your Hell” and… Yeah…

December
This was a pretty calm month, I did, thank god, together with Sofia, attend to Crashdiets show in Karlskoga, and it felt kinda nice to wrap up the music year with them. Else not much happened in December.

This year has been pretty good after all, even if it happened major bad things.

Predictions for next year.. I really hope I get to catch both SO and Reckless Love live, and also Lordi somehow. In my wildest dream, I hope Slaughter comes back. Maybe Bon Jovi could get his ass here too… Yes.
I hope I will get to meet a lot of new Lordi fans on gigs, and I hope to spend more times with the fans I know, and with Sofia, and Sara and Thomas and Martine And Ginny…

I also wanna say thanks to these people for making my year awesome:

Lordi at Trabendo, 28/11 (Paris trip part.3)

Posted in Paris 2010, Uncategorized on December 29, 2010 by Sara Hammerzmith

Alrite. So they finally let us sin the arena, and the first thing me and Thomas did was to look up the presslady to pick up my photopass. After that we just scanned our tickets and ran into the arena, right over to Fairy of Darkness and LivingDeadDollie! It was so nice to meet them and to finally get to talk to them you know? And the cutest thing, they gave us small candybars that said Merry Christmas in different languages. We weren’t really doing too much but only recaping of what had happened and soon Burning Black started to play.

The show was great – I have always been a bit doubtful towards supportbands – and certainly around bands with a bit heavier sound.  But I did really enjoy this band, and I guess it was also kinda epic that the singer was fooling around a lot with a banana all the time! Or well, I guess it wasn’t the same banana all along but.. you know!

After the show when they were thanking the crowd Thomas demanded them to get me a banana so Stefano Moro (the guitarist of BB) went and got me one.. “Miss banana gotta have a banana”. Seriously, I have never wanted to kill Thomas as bad as I wanted right there! Hahaha. (No, I wouldn’t I love them all!)

 

However, the epicness of this entire thing doesn’t really end there. After a short while the second supportband went on, The Dogma, only for us to realize, the guitarist there had a unicorn on his shirt. Are you kidding me? Unicorns AND bananas? What the HELL is this? However – The Dogma was all fine. I am not too fond of their music, but they didn’t do anything bad or such. Amazing.

 

The Dogma left the stage and it was time for us to become REAL excited. In any minute… or eh… 30 minutes, Lordi was about to enter the stage. We were basically just staying… RIGHT, haha, Thomas had also got one of the The Dogma members scarf! We tied a little fly on him, you know, to get it out of place! The time passed by as we just talked and planned – we were gonna try out our six ways to ruin a Lordi gig, and in the middle of the planning, the sound of SCG V started. That pretty little keyboard accompanied with violins to end up with a woman giving birth. The band started to enter the stage during this – obviously – Otus, Awa, Amen, OX.

It did kinda hurt a bit to see Otus enter stage, but after a while of catching my breathe I got over it. Right on time, and much more rawer than Kita ever did, they hit it off with “Babez For Breakfast”. As you might have understand you people who follow my blog, I have been involved a lot in the spoiler thread on MB so I kinda new what was coming. They followed up Babez with “Dynamite Tonite”. I understand a lot of people love it, and I’m okay with that… BUT WHY, DEAR LORDI, is this in? I was happy that it was out on Deadache Tour, but apparently.. it was just taking a break. Damnit.

Earlier today, Mr Lordi had been saying that they couldn’t play the whole set. I was so relieved you know when I saw the setlist on Monsterboard – My ALL TIME favourite song, “My Heaven Is Your Hell” was finally in. FINALLY in the set. But somehow, I get the feeling I am the only one (as I have seen, of course!) that actually enjoys it, so when Mr Lordi said that they had to cut down the set I was like please no, please… and then when Mr Lordi started to rant about the “second single” (and apparently it’s the first and not the second?) I felt… relieved. But still worried – he could as well be talking about “Blood Red Sandman” or maybe it could even just be a delightful Fuck Off to all us “My Heaven” lovers. But when he FINALLY said the words “My Heaven Is Your Hell”, I could breathe again. And Laugh. And Smile. And cry a little. For FOUR YEARS.
FOUR YEARS my friends. Finally. And it was just as perfect live as I had imagined it.

“Bite It Like A Bulldog” was the next song – if you haven’t got it yet, it’s kinda OX’s song. According to the setlist, my fave song off Babez For Breakfast was supposed to appear… but no. They had cutten it off, instead Awa started to play her beautiful little lullaby for us and once again we saw the dead couple dancing only to be killed by the what, Killer Queen? No? Yes? Yes.

What is rumored to be the second single of Babez was the next song, “Rock Police” and this was also the first point for us to try out our you know, ruin lordi gig thing. I want to clear out from the start – No, we are not hating Lordi. No, it’s not ACTUALLY ruining the gig at all, it’s just the three of us (Martine, me and Thomas) who fools around a bit.

Sadly, the electric chair was not here in Paris. Kinda sad, I had really been looking forward to see it. But it was ok. It was a bit sad it didn’t have any story – the wanker just appeared, Mr Lordi knocked him out and that was it. Nevertheless – The song was amazingly executed still and I couldn’t complain about that.

Not sure if you remember – but the other day I was complaining about how they stick with “It Snows In Hell” instead of doing the new ballads (on Deadache they sure did Evilyn too, but you know) and on the setlist it had been saying they would do “ISIH” but… Do you understand how amazing it felt then to hear the intro to “Call Off The Wedding”? COTW might be the best ballad Lordi has ever done, and to hear it live FINALLY, was great. It was great. It’s time for them to stick to it, if you ask me.

The scene that every Lordi fan knows about came up, the “Whos your daddy” scene. For todays specific event Awa had actually gotten some kind of candybars that were named “Daddy” that she showed off. Real nice. But whats up with her chibivoice?

 

The band stepped off the stage to give Otus his 15 minutes of fame. Ok – he didn’t really last EXACTLY 15 minutes, but you get it. He has a real intense drumsolo, I can’t say anything else than that he is really talented. REALLY.

 

An oldie, “Last Kiss Goodbye” has in some way, found its way back into the set, and since it’s one of my faves I can’t complain. I feel kinda spoiled you know – All my faves (‘cept from Nonstop Nite then).

Ok. Now came, the song, that I so dreadfully fear. “Grannyz Gone Crazy”. It’s a fine song,  I love it… but I FEAR the granny. And I am not lying when  I am saying this – when I saw her entering the stage, I basically sat down on the floor. There were NO WAY in HELL I was EVER Gonna be beaten by her. EVER. So I sat gently down. Thomas kinda laughed at it. Yeah, he can go ahead! After all, he is just a GROWN MEN DRESSING UP LIKE GIRLS!!!!!…. Almost! Hahaha!

Another always-be-in-the-setlist-song hit off – “Blood Red Sandman” before Mr Lordi stopped for a while to talk. And what did he say…
“Well. I kinda made a promise earlier today to play a certain song, and now we are gonna do it. So here it is HATE AT FIRST SIGHT!” and pointed at Thomas.

And seriously, I was myself RELIEVED we didn’t get “Evilove” (I am not a too big fan of it) and it was amusing to see how happy Thomas got from it. Amazing.

Amen-Ra got his papermoment-15seconds-of-fame moment, sadly enough shortened down his guitarsolo to ONLY “Amens Lament To Ra” and the intro of Dr Sin, so yes, “Dr Sin Is In” was the next song obviously, and that was a little sad, but I guess we will live. The song was a pleasure to hear again – it is real lovely.

SCG3 hit it off as an intro to “Bringing Back The Balls To Rock” who was followed by yet another tribute song – “This is Heavy Metal”. I got a little pissed about how long Mr Lordi stood there talking about a bunch of bands we at the moment couldn’t care less about you know, I mean, FUCK, they cut out Nonstop Nite, but he can stand there and talk all this bullshit? Well.. I HEARD THE TONS OF BULLSHIT HE TALKS!  But it was well nice to see the TIHM dude for real!

The fantastic three was followed up after that – you know them – “Devil Is A Loser”, “Hard Rock Hallelujah” and “Man On Fire”.. No, just kidding. “Would You Love A Monsterman”. I kinda love the fact that they switched places of HRH and WYLAM. Great.

 

After this, the show was over. Over all, despite all the down toning things, it was a real great show musically. I enjoyed every moment and can quite easily say this was the best Lordi gig in my life. To make it the PERFECT they should of course cut out Dynamit and add Deadache and for gods sake get rid of “Biomechanic Man” (that they, THANK GOD, weren’t playing in Paris!)  and keep Nonstop Nite.. BUT… It is fine anyway! Lovley. 

The gig gets easily 8/10. Should have been a full set, but it’s not the bands fault.
Best: Do you need to ask? MY HEAVEN OF COURSE!
Worst”: The talking about the bands. 

Alrite. After the gig we just took a moment to catch our breathes and then ran to the backstage entrance and miraculosly got in. LDD and FOD ran ahead of us, and Thomas had som struggles with the guard so I was kinda left in the middle. I asked a couple of girls of the crew where they went and pointed down in the directions. I didn’t run or anything, just walked for myself, singing a little (I figured I’d also wait for Thomas and Martine) when OX appears.
Pretty much like:
Me: *walking* *singing*
OX:  BUH!
Me:  AHHHHAHAHHAHAHHHHH!
Lordi 2 – Sara 0.

The rest of the band came and Mr Lordi asked us to walk as far as we could and found a door we could go out. Both we and the band thought it would best to be outside (Space wise) but Mark (the temporary tourmanager) didn’t agree… So the band had to squeese into a little stairway, and that was fucked up. Cause if Otus didn’t cover the fan, he was behind Amen, and if Awa didn’t cover the fan, she was behind OX, and OX… did barely even make the pics. But it turned out fine, and Martine, FOR SOME REASON, asked Amen about our madness on MB. And apparently he knew about it, HAHA! Who would have known. After that we started to take pics, and just as we were taking the last… an invasion of fans appeared.

I don’t know where the heck they came from, but a whole ocean! Kinda.. And Mark said we had to leave – and believe us, how much we ever wanna spend time with Lordi, we would never let other fans waiting. BUT, if the hallway was so small barley Mr Lordi could fit, how the fuck where we supposed to get OUT if its CROWDED with fans!? After a while they got it and moved our of our way, and then it was fine. We got out, and said good bye to Thomas and then went to the merch.

After two years I could finally pick up my beloved Deadache shirt, and gladly, it was still on sale! I also got myself a lanyard, and Martine got Otus shirt,  Kita shirt and lanyard (as far as I remember). We waited for LDD to come out (she got stuck in there…) and then we went outside.. to the cold… TO THE SNOW! While we were inside it had started to snow a bit..

We went to the tourbusses and were soon accompanied with  Burning Black and got to know them a little bit. FOD had her picture taken with two of them and we got lightners and CDs of them. They had to leave, and soon the Lordi members started to roll in too. We said good bye to each and everyone of them and then we left Trabendo and went to McDonalds to have some food and drink (Martine, Me, FOD and LDD) and that might have been one of the peaks of the entire night. I had a blast. It was so hard to say goodbye to them afterwards.

We went up to our hotel again and basically just laid there and said “What the fuck just happened..” we put in our backstage pics in the computer to look at them and we were just.. ahh.

The next day we went up ridiculously early to have breakfast and head for the airports, sadly, we didn’t travel from the same, so it was good bye for Me and Martine at the metro station.

Another epic trip was ended. And not in any single way, do I ever regret of doing it. Actually, I can’t wait to do it again. To meet everyone again. Thanks everyone. Thanks.

Paris trip Part 2.

Posted in Uncategorized on December 25, 2010 by Sara Hammerzmith

The next day started out kinda harsh. I woke up by a phonecall from the management saying something in french. I stared in the mirror and pretty much asked him to come again but in English. He said something about breakfast, maybe I was too tired or the phoneline sucked or something, because I didn’t get it. He asked me to come down and I said sure… and went back to bed. But I didn’t go back to sleep so I just texted Martine and asked if they had called her too, which they had. I went over to her room and we decided we would go down together. Apparently – the breakfast or what to call it – closed at 9. That’s what they were trying to tell us. However – this hotel wasn’t really highstandarded, so they let us have our breakfast anyway. And who closes a breakfast at 9 on a sunday?

After babez for breakfast we went back up and started to get ready for the gig. I got some texts from Ginny during the time, their train had gotten delayed so we figured we could take a bit time – we weren’t too interested in getting to the venue before them. We also kept in touch with Thomas to see if he and his brothter would come at the same time, which they apparently wouldn’t…. Anyhow.

All of a sudden, I get a text from Ginny telling me they are not only in Paris, but outside our hotel! I thought she was fucking joking, but then I looked out my window, and would you know! There they were, Ginny and Isa. I was like HOLY CRAP and grabbed the first pair of shoes I could find and ran down to them to say hello.

It was surreal – I mean, this is freaking Isa and Ginny – two I have only been talking to online before. I mean sure – I met a lot of people off the net before, but this was so strange – probably because I never thought I’d ever actually meet them, no matter what how much I really wanted it. I talked with them for a little while before I went back up again to finish up (and talking about bad timing, Martine had just entered the shower as they showed up at the hotel).

After a while we were ready and fit for fight so we made the final call and left the hotel heading for Trabendo just to realize… Martine had forgotten her ticket. Back to the hotel, grab her ticket, and then we started to go again. On our way down we actually came across Zayka from MB, yet we didn’t know it was her until later. We weren’t too sure how to find to Trabendo, and we were real nervous… and then we saw the signs. The signs telling us where Trabendo was. Felt great.

 Gotta say though that the way to Trabendo was well complicated, and whats up with the red carpet kind of thing? Was great though, we started to think “Is this Trabendo?” when we heard Ginny and Isa starting to cheer us. It was epic. Getting down the stairs and run right over to Isa, Ginny, Jasmine and Sophie! All fellow monsterboarders (Isa, Angel of Death, mummy- and Soooophie). After a while I heard someone call my name from the bridge above and I looked up.. At first I was like, What? And then I saw.. OH MY! ITS FAIRY OF DARKNESS! And LIVINGDEADDOLLIE! They waved like crazy before they came down and went into the arena.

And from there… It all started. The entire madness. We began with recaping and getting to know new faces when we first saw OX, and Martine got starstruck. She just stood there, glared, and repeated “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god”. It was hilarious, it really was! While Ginny and Isa were away to check into their hotel, I managed to break my heel. Seriously, it’s something only I can manage to do at such a situation.

The entire queue reacted and went “OH NOOOOOOO!”, haha, amazing. I was a bit embarrased, but on the same time – it happens to anybody so… Thomas arrived at this point too with his brother and was one nice reunion with the Awesome Threesome… dancing a little, singing a little and we also saw Mr Lordi a couple of times. When Ginny and Isa came back I went back to the hotel with Thomas to change shoes and also pick up the orders at McDonalds (who was lying just next to our hotel!) and I am gonna tell you something – that wasn’t the easiest thing to do. I had to ask a bit about the text I got, so I called up Martine only to hear Mr Lordi was there.. 

Me: Hey, can I ask you a bit about the orders? Is there supposed to be ONE stripes or four?
Martine: Mr Lordi is here! O.o
Me: Yeah, thats very cool, but tell me, whats with the stripes?
Martine: MR LORDI IS HERE!!
Me:  Stripes? HOW MANY STRIPES?
Martine: BUT MR LORDI IS HERE!!!!!
Me: I DONT CARE ABOUT MR LORDI, YOU CAN’T ORDER MR LORDI, WHATS UP WITH THE STRIPES?!?!
Martine: *hands over phone to Ginny*
Ginny: Hey!
Me: Hey! Thanks! So, whats up with the stripes? One or four?
Ginny: One only!
Me:  thanks!*click*

So finally I could get the orders. And then I convinced Thomas to follow me back to Trabendo, and so he did. On the way to McD, some disgusting french had been..oh, trying to hit on me (or Thomas, not sure!) so Thomas totally pretended to be my boyfriend on the way back, so that the ugly french wouldn’t abduct me. You know, a blonde sleazetramp from Sweden… asj. And once we were back and was dividing the food, Mr Lordi came by again. This time, we attacked him. No, not literally, but we did start to talk to him. We all introduced us, we also learnt Isa had a KISS shirt Mr Lordi didn’t have, we learnt that I was Pippi Longstockings (?), Martine got a cigarette from him, he recieved a doll from Zayka and her boyfriend that he promised to put on stage and he also promised Thomas they would play “Hate At First Sight” (On this tour they have been changing a bit inbetween Evilove and Hate At First Sight, and since one of the lines in Evilove is “Our night in Paris with candles” we were afraid they were gonna do Evilove.)

I must say I was very surprised over how long he actually stayed and talked with us fans, I think it was at least around 30 minutes – just makes him grow in my eyes you know. After that Thomas took off to have some dinner or something with his brother and we walked back to the queue and had our dinner… lunch… whatever you wanna vall it.

After this… something legendary happened. Amen arrived to the venue, and I, just as in 2006, yelled out “LOOK! AMEN!!”.
This would have bad consequenses.
Both Jasmin and Ginny are avid Amen fans and just as I announced he had arrived, they got so excited that they jumped to the side and yelled “WHERE?”

As the first ones in line as they were… there were a fence. And this fence, oh holy fence, wasn’t strong enough to beat down on two fangirls. It broke down, and almost took the rest of the fence with it. Everyone started screaming (obviously, since some of the crowd where sitting on the fence, hahahaha!) Amen looked at us in the strangest way and then hurried in the arena. We all just started to laugh hysterically and straightened up the fence. 

We were all in some kind of shock, that let go when they started the soundcheck and we just sang along. All of us. And when they played “Hate At First Sight” we all cheered. YES. Hate At First Sight was on!.. We hoped at least. We found it hilarious that Thomas wasn’t there yet to hear it, and we started to call him up and he said he would be there “soon”. And the hours kinda passed, and we looked up to the walk to see if he were there… we even yelled “MR PORN?!” sometimes just to see if he would react (we did this on the persons we thought looked like Thomas but we couldn’t tell for sure).

We asked Ginny, Isa, Jasmin and Sophie to join us in on yelling Mr Porn when he would arrive, and when he finally DID arrive we all cheered him “MR PORN!! MR PORN!!” and it ended being so that the entire queue started to cheer him that way too! How epic isn’t that? Thomas just stayed in the stairs, enjoying his 15 seconds of fame and showing us the heavy metal sign and then went… to the end of the queue. What the fuck? Martine got pissed, ran outta the queue and in the back to get him and his brother Walter. Thomas apparently got all worried when Martine came towards him real angry, so scared he didn’t dare to do anything but obey her. They came into the front and we could finally really talk to Walter! Real nice guy really! We stood and talked for a while, counting the minutes… they passed by so slowley! And after a while, Martine pointed at a long haired guy and said she thought she had seen him on Monsterboard…. She poke his arm and asked him if he was on Monsterboard, and it turns out he was! It was filc! That was just way epic you know… To just randomly run into Monsterboarders!

After long counting they finally let us in, and from there, I let the third entry talk.

Paris trip, part 1.

Posted in Paris 2010, Uncategorized on December 14, 2010 by Sara Hammerzmith

Alrite, I gathered myself now to start write about Paris. I will spilt this epic trip on three different entries – Saturday, Sunday and the gig! So here goes, SATURDAY.

This might have been the most epic trip ever really. First we can begin with the fact that I actually had to leave Sweden at what, 3am. It was real cozy though – it was dark outside and the bus was silent and not too full either. Hoever we did leave the station a bit late, and that kinda freaked me out, since I had a tight timeschedule to make it to the flight. But thanks to the new road or whatever it is, we advanced and arrived in Oslo 15 minutes earlier than planned. By now I’m quite familiar with Oslo (or at least the central parts) and since we went to the flytrain to pick up Thomas, it was a piece of cake to find it. And I got with the first one! So I was well in time for the flight, no more stress! Once checked in at the airport I bumped into the lovely Martine and we headed for security and the taxfree. Did you know there are no softdrinks in the taxfree? We were looking for a coke but all we could ever find was alcohol. Nice.

 

I must say, for two girls from Scandinavia that speaks no french, we handled it pretty good down there. No mishaps or anything – we got to the hotel safely. I guess it’s all thanks to Jordan Mooney and his researches and map he fixed for us. Thank you, dear. And also thanks to Martines dad who made sure we found the hotel. I though gotta say – that might have been the weirdest hotel EVER. It was said when we booked it that it was supposed to be a quite nice hotel… But what the you know… My room was almost smaller than the ones in Hotel Micro and my bathroom didn’t have a lock. And we just… relaxed for a while. Just laid down, or, I did, me and Martine had our own rooms so I can’t tell what she did, but oh well, haha. After an hour or so we asked Thomas to come, and the procedure to get him to our hotel was the first hilarious thing ever. He got out at the subway, just as we, but for some reason he had problems to find our hotel. We literally hang out of the windows looking for him and screaming after him, and we saw him once in a while, but for some reason he went totally different ways and ended up at a hospital… way off. He did however find the hotel later on, and we were just about to get down and get him as he came up instead. Apparently the guy in the reception had presumed he was up to visit us, so he had sent him up to our floor.

 

And we just… froze up there. It was one nice reunion. We listened to some The Mumblers songs, talked ALOT about the next day, and just recaped of the recent happenings. After a while Thomas started to build a tower of cellphones and after a long long while he succeeded. At this point though, we were really starving so we went out on a pizza hunt… I think we walked across half the centre of Paris before we realized we had a pizzahut right across the street. After having some fine pizza and pepsi (in the name of Mr Lordi!) we went back to the hotel to make even more cheesy Lordi videos, refining our choreographies and all. After a while Thomas left and it was just me and Martine again. Updating a little on facebook, and then we were done, and went to bed.

Stay tuned! I will soon update with more.

PUCKO LEVER!!!

Kommer ni ihåg Pucko, den puckade ipoden? Som dog?

Well… Not anymore! HAN VAKNADE TILL LIV IDAG!

Jag erkänner. Jag fällde faktiskt ett par tårar när jag såg att han började lysa..

Välkommen tillbaka Pucko! Du var saknad!

Paris…

Posted in Paris 2010, Uncategorized on December 5, 2010 by Sara Hammerzmith

Its been a fucking week since Paris. I can’t fucking believe it. And I haven’t written a shit either. Now I do.

I’ll give you an entire review soon, but right now I just cant..

But I felt I had to say that it turned out like I though. When Otus entered the stage I did cry for a while. It was like… It was so weird. WHERE THE FUCK is my pet the destroyer, you know? It sucked big time. But I got over it kinda fast too. Kita is an arse, just to deal with it.

We also learned that fences should never be put in front of Jasmine and Ginny when Amen arrives to the venue.
