Royal vinyl

Posted: September 30, 2015 in Classic Rock, Cool stuff


Got the “King of Kings” album from Leaves´Eyes in the mail today, and they´ve certainly used the gatefold sleeve to full effect – this is as good as it gets. The album has been released in blue and red vinyl, 500 copies each, strictly for fans. I love that and I picked the blue version myself.

This is how you do it.


Fall arrives

Got this in the mail today, 87:an issue 5 2015. The cover pretty much says it all, this is Sweden just about now (and in more ways than one I would say).

87:an is a good comic book though, no doubt about it.

Half a century ago

Posted: September 29, 2015 in General, Magazines


Here´s a blast from the past, World of Men (February 1964) and Woman In War (March 1963), and it´s not like you would see anything like this in your local kiosk today, right?

If I were an Arts teacher today, I would showcase these covers to my students and ask them to write a piece on what they think of them. Anybody who disliked them would flunk immediately.

But that´s in my world, and I would be the first to admit that I´m a dinosaur these days. Thing is, I would rather be a dinosaur then than a modern PC idiot any day of the week – and we can certainly argue endlessly about exactly who has been fucked up by decades of conditioning.

But then I like my side of the coin better, and a coin still has two sides.

Bought this War of Independence kit in 1/72 from manufacturer Italeri, British Light Cavalry. 34 figures.

Terriffic box art.

Western comics

Here´s three comic books that are currently on sale in good old Norway – Maxi Tex 42 (324 pages), Tex Willer 606 and Månestråle (a nice 124 page special). Månestråle is a female warrior, her name translates roughly to Radiates like Moon or Moon Glow.

Good stuff.

Falling Skies 4

Posted: September 27, 2015 in TV & Movies


I´ve just seen season 4 of Falling Skies and I think it was better than the last, so that was a good thing. I can see online that they´ve ended it after season 5, so it´s going to be interesting to see how they wrapped it all up. Nice to see actress Mira Sorvino pop up in the show.

I buy my DVD´s, I prefere to really support people that create art.

Debbie Does Dallas

Posted: September 27, 2015 in TV & Movies


I stumbled across the 1978 porn classic “Debbie Does Dallas” again recently and I had not seen it since about 1987 when my old video tape was liberated from a tour bus on a rock tour (I´m not going to mention the outfit here), and it was actually quite fun to see again after all these years. I did see a documentary about it a few years ago, so it goes without saying that it is a classic film in the genre. When I google it now I can see that the story has been put up as a play and I can see collectors items like figurines. They also did several followups but you can´t beat the charm of the original. Yes, it is quite charming in a way, right down to the girls, the acting, even the music.

I like it.
