Summary of 2013

Alright. A little late, but here it is. Just as previous years, I’ll write a summary. Can’t break the tradition now, can I?

January

January was in general a pretty slow month. Except for one thing. LORDIS NEW ALBUM! For me that is. I got it VERY so early from their recordcompany, but you know, benefits of being a musicjournalist, right? Else from that it wasn’t very much new. A few new Phineas&Ferb episodes, but you know all about that already.

February

Leakage-Drama. I’m not sure if I have actually written about this in my blog before, but here it is. Someone had told Mr L that I had the album, and he accused me, along with a few friends for filesharing. After a long email with a lot of contactinformation to recordcompany people, he apologized and all was fine, at least between us. However, the drama all in all isn’t solved to this day, and I’m still curios who them people are who turned us in. They can’t be very brave, given they did it anonymously. Jesus Christ, the Lordi fandom sometimes!

But apart from the drama, WRECK-IT RALPH also happened! What a fantastic movie. Me, Emelie and Michelle saw it together. And if I’m not mistaken, this was also the same night where I found out I had won backstage tickets to the Lordi show in Milano! What a night, huh? The same weekend we also went to Boda Borg for the first time in forever. Ah, amazement.

Of course, you take the good with the bad. One of my rabbits passed away this month. We wrapped up the whole month with going to a Crashdiet concert in Oslo.

March

I debuted as a journalist for Melodifestivalsklubben at the Second Chance here in Karlstad, and it was the most fun thing I have done in a very, very long time I must say.  Else from that, not a whole lot happened. There were  A LOT of Phineas&Ferb marathons going. Oh yeah! We also went to Paula’s place to celebrate her birthday, kind of a surprise for her as I had told her before I wouldn’t make it! She was quite so happy to see me!

April

April is Lordi month. This is the month me, Michelle and the ever so faithful Argo went to ITALY to see Lordi live on their To Beast tour. We were toying around a bit with ideas on where we’d see Lordi next, you know, go to a country we haven’t been in before, and this time the choice landed on Italy. We began in Rome, and then onto Milano. It is one of the most epic trips I’ve ever experienced. The shows were great, the meet&greets were great, ROME was great! Palantino is always gonna be a very, very special place for me. I just loved it so much. Milano was rainy, but still amazing. And I finally got to go to an actual Disney Store. I was in heaven. Seriously.

May

May is, and will probably always be, Eurovision Month. This year, Eurovision was here at home in Sweden and we got to experience the wonderful Malmö. As all of you know, Denmark won the thing, so next year, Copenhagen and den lille havsfrue it is! Looking forward to it.  We also learned we’d won the Meet&Greet passes to Lordi when they played at Skogsröjet!

I also…. You know how many times I’ve put in as my expectations that I’d see Bon Jovi live? I didn’t do it 2012, because I figured it wouldn’t happen. BUT GUESS WHAT! FINALLY, AFTER ALL THIS TIME, I’ve seen Bon Jovi live! I originally went there with Michelle, but I ended up with spending the concert with Rebecka instead, the girl I met at Stala&SO. shows in 2012. Long time no see! Was so glad to see her again.

June

Well. I have written almost nothing about June. Meaning, nothing happened. Except one of the voice-actresses of Phineas&Ferb scaring the hell out of us.

July

Well, a lot of fun things happened here. First of all, I started working with building a new ÖoB store here in Sweden. I never really write about job related things on the blog because of reasons, but this one is something I’m very very fond of. It was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had and I worked with some great people.

July was also the month of SKOGSRÖJET everybody! I don’t think I’ve missed it once since I started going to it like, two years ago, so not so long ago, but this year was special. LORDI played there! You know what that means? Lordi did their first Swedish gig since 2009. It’s insane! Also, the heat during the festival was insane. What was even better, was that ALL of us Lordipeople, Me, Michelle, Ludvig, Hanna and Paula had ALL won Meet&Greet, so we all got to meet Lordi – Amen together! How awesome isn’t that? Other amazing bands that played was The 69 Eyes, Twisted Sister, Lita Ford and H.E.A.T. I might have forgotten someone, so don’t kill me.

August

Spent most of August working, but apart from that, Michelle, Emelie and I went to celebrate my birthday at Liseberg! We had so much fun. Also, Gravity Falls returned from it’s loooong hiatus. And Alex retweeted our picture. Yes, I’m a fangirl, sue me.

September

September was a seemingly empty month. Dear Lord, how did that even happen? Only God knows. I’m pretty positive though, that I bought my Olly Murs tickets along with our Rock of Ages tickets.

October

Here, a little more happened. First of all, I went to see the ever so lovely Olly Murs. It’s seriously one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Sure, it may not be much of a show like Lordi or Steel Panther, but seriously. His music and him just…. ah.

We also went to celebrate Michelle’s birthday in Stockholm, by spending a weekend there hooking up with the Rock of Ages musical. And seriously, I loved the movie, but the musical IS SO MUCH BETTER! I just ahahsjdasjk. I can’t even begin to explain! I wish and hope I get a chance to catch it again next year! We also went to Boda Borg, this time with a new guy, called Kim. Things always gets out of hand on Boda Borg, like we got this idea we’d turn Kim into a mummy, but instead it all turned out to be a marshmallow war? What?

In October, my very loved hamster Simon passed away after two years in my possession. He’s greatly missed, and I still hear his wheel spinning at times. Damn it.

November

November was Mission Month. November was the month where all those Gravity Falls and Phineas&Ferb episode I’ve waited for so long was released. MISSION FUCKING MARVEL PEOPLE!! And PRIMAL PERRY!! And SIDETRACKED!! GOD DAMN! It was a bit intense, but they were soooo good! God, I love these shows.

December

December was the month for Dreamscaperers. That ONE Gravity Falls episode we’ve all been waiting for. Bill Cipher and all. By Odin’s Beard, it was so great! In planning New Year’s, we decided I was gonna dress up as Elsa, and it was somewhere around here my craze for Frozen started. In the beginning /middle of December. It was quite a rush, but the costume was finished on time. BARELY. We nailed the last threads and stones just an hour ago, and party is soon about to begin here. Also, we celebrated Christmas in the stable this year, a few days late with Emelie and Kim. It was the coziest ever.

Well yes. That was my year in blogging, I suppose. Let’s see what I wrote for predictions.

* SBTY will work out – Nope
* Lordi tour will work out- DONE
* Meet Mr. Aussie – Nope (damn you!)
* Steel Panther live – Nope
* Stala & SO & Honey Hellraise – Nope

Uhm. Yeah. ONE out of a few. Not so good, huh? Alright. Here come’s this years predictions:

* See Olly Murs again
* See Lordi again
* Go to EHM
* Travel somewhere new
* Audition

I’m not gonna write any further on Audition, it’s a bit of a secret for myself, but yes. There they are. I hope they all come true!
