This early (2013) Babymetal single, “Megitsune” (one of four versions over in Japan) is currently on sale on ebay for 742 dollars. These early items are quite rare these days and very much in demand from fans that discovered Babymetal later on.

Meanwhile, the video for “Megitsune” has over 45,000,000 views on YouTube. Check it out here.

Tarja mystery

This is interesting. There appears to be two Vinyls of the new Tarja Turunen Christmas album (due out tomorrow), as I have located the first you see here at Ginza and the second over at EMP (in Sweden). I will order from both, then we will see. Meanwhile, Tarja is seen checking the new album out (only one Vinyl to be seen in this clip) on a film released by earMusic yesterday.

Watch it here.

Callie Sakura has a brilliant new video up in which she shows us all her favourite Babymetal t-shirts. You may be aware of the fact that Babymetal sell t-shirts like crazy, and they do hold the record at Wembley Arena in London for most merchandise sold for one show (April 2 2016).

Check out the video here.

1940

Posted: November 15, 2017 in Books, General, Jämtland (County)

Added this book to the old collection yesterday. Swedish author Ella Wilcke´s “En sommar på egen hand” (Natur och kultur, 1940). Title translates to “A Summer on our own” and it is about a bunch of kids spending a summer together on the countryside. This book won a competition and was seen by the authorities of the day to be good and educational. It is interesting that the war was on and one could argue that this book was perhaps picked for reasons of preparedness as well? Here the kids could learn about nature etc. You could probably see this book from different angles once you really get into it. Incidentally, my copy was once part of a library in a village called Lit in my neck of the woods. Now it will get a second (or perhaps a third?) life in my collection.

Lovely cover too, the book has illustrations by Marc Hentzel.
