Under The Sea

Posted in Uncategorized on January 31, 2016 by Sara Hammerzmith

Spent the entire weekend at Sofia’s. Sofia and I have this habit of only actually hanging out once a year, and for some god forsaken reason we always hang out in the winter. Gladly for both of us, winter is currently gone here in Sweden, at least temporarily.

It’s been a very slow weekend – we mostly spent it inside watching TV and talking about everything and nothing that has happened in the past year, catching up on whats new and what is not. We’ve gone over so many “Catfish” episodes that I’ve gotten afraid of stalkers, laughed so hard, cried hard, well everything. I guess these kind of friends are the best of friends.

It’s been a great and relaxing weekend, and I look forward to see her again soon.

Out of the Woods

Posted in Uncategorized on January 28, 2016 by Sara Hammerzmith

So, I started out this morning by going back to work. And seriously, I can honestly say that it’s because of my job I’ve developed a fear of the dark. And I must admit, I wasn’t too keen on putting on Powerwolf because of last times incident with the traffic info, but my computer has eaten up my Taylor Swift CD and Attilas voice is strangely calming in the woods.

But you know, it was like a poor horror movies. It’s windy as fuck, raining, slippery, surprise things jumping up right in front of you. Good thing for me that I don’t panic easily.

The night on the other hand, I spent with Nathalie. I don’t see this girl too often, despite her living rather near. We spent the night talking, catching up on everything, eating so much candy and crisps we almost fell ill, drinking cola ’til the end of the day while watching Rob Zombie’s remake of “Halloween”, “Easy A” and the another movie I never caught the title on because we didn’t really watch it.

It was a great night. I really have to make sure I spend more time with her, which shouldn’t be too hard.

Welcome to New York

So today, taken a little out of nowhere, Emelie and I headed to the movies. I had two movie tickets that expired TODAY that I got several years ago when I worked as Elsa at the theaters, but I had simply forgotten about.

First we set off to Spicy Hot downtown for some quick dinner and catching up sessions. Even though I speak to Emelie on a daily basis, I rarely see her these days. I missed her sooo much. After this, movie time.

We had a hard time choosing movie at first, but eventually settled for “The Fifth Wave” despite not having read the book(s)(?) before, which is a bit unlikely us.

Well, since it’s a cinema-movie right now I don’t really wanna get too much into it, what it was about since some people might have yet to see it and don’t want it spoiled, but I liked it a lot. Sadly, it was a bit too obvious, like, I figured out who was the bad guy on the very moment they appeared, and despite now knowing anything about this, I could literally sit and tell Emelie what was gonna happen. So I guess that’s a minus. But aside that, I really enjoyed it and I think we made the right choice on film.

I can’t believe how close Australia is creeping. And most importantly, not only is Australia creeping nearer, but I have full fucking schedule up until the day we leave. Seriously. I have two concerts coming up before the big trip, and I work in the stable every weekend in February… the time is passing way too fast right now. I can’t believe that January is almost over. Where do time disappear?

Taylor Swift keeps me on the grounds thankfully. I’ve gotten a lot of things done thanks to her soothing voice and lyrics and arrangements. Seriously, her album “1989” could have been written about me and these past couple of months, more to be exact, late October up ’til now. This is why I love her so much. She’s that big sister that you simply relate to.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to get my shit together so I don’t stress out the few days before Australia. With the help of Taylor Swift, that should be no problem whatsoever.

Part of your World

So, new bands were announced for Sweden Rock today! And gladly, one of the bands I had a premonition of got confirmed : Epica! This made me beyond happy. Being sad I missed out on The Quantuum Enigma run completely, I’m looking forward to fill this year with a lot of Epica.

Other bands confirmed are Anthrax, Lita Ford, Dirkschneider, Glenn Hughes, Raised Fist, Imperial State Electric, 220 Volt, The Eric Bell Trio and The Kentucky Headhunters.

It’s going to be sooo great to see Lita Ford again! I saw her last time at Skogsröjet I think it’s three years back now, and I’m beyond excited to see one of my heroes once again. I tell you, “Kiss Me Deadly” is seriously one of my life anthems. I really owe Lita Ford a lot.

But aside this, I think Sweden Rock is shaping up good. After having a few years with shaky line ups, I really like how this one is about to be. I really need to get my ticket asap, so I don’t miss out on Amaranthe on Wednesday.

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Sunday is Funday, and most of this day has been spent sleeping and then spending the night at Jennie’s. Haven’t seen her in like FORVER, so it was good catching up with her again.

I’m still a bit stuck in my post-concert-depression, I mean… I can’t say any harm would have been done by having a few extra gigs with some of the most important men in my life, but what can one do? It’s really hard to comprehend that in like, a month from now, we’ll be heading over to the UK for Sabaton tour, and then we’re off to Australia. It’s such a weird feeling, and I can’t really… grasp it just yet.

The only thing I know for sure it’s that it’ll be fucking amazing, that’s for sure. Now we just need to get all the final shit together. And that is a task harder than any, actually…

Spent half of this day in bed. We came home at 7 am this morning, so I guess it’s all fair. When on “tour” you don’t get a lot of sleep sadly, and especially not with plane delays and timezone changes. The day was spent with post-concert-depression in all honesty.This came too fast, and was over way too fast. I need another 7 or 20 SlipKnot concert, another 20 “Spit it Out” moments… Damn. I can’t even properly deal with the fact I won’t see these men for a while. These men who mean so much to me. I can’t even grasp the fact I actually met these men. That’s probably the weirdest thing for me.

But the little thing I did manage to do despite the PCD, was to go to IKEA and get myself a frame so I could frame my signed vinyl cover. I took out the vinyls of course, they’ll be put in something else. Can’t have a vinyl I’m not listening to, huh?

Jesus christ. I can’t grasp it. That I actually met them. That I actually held Corey Taylor. That I actually spoke to Sid. That I had Jim make jokes about me. What the hell. What the hell actually happened on Monday.
