THERION – SHANGHAI

October 1st

We went off from Peking towards Shanghai with the fast-train. It took about 6 hours. But it was a very pleasant trip and I did some work on my laptop and as always we had a good time chatting with each other.
We arrived to Shangai about 10 pm and got to Holiday Inn Hotel just before the restaurant closed so we could order some food. Then I went straight to bed. (Afterwards I heard that after I left there were some mess down in the restaurant with the staff yelling at each other….. but that´s another story)

October 2nd

Woke up at 10 am. Christian and I went out for a walk in the city and then the staff from the local promotor took us to a restaurant for lunch. From Thomas I got to know about an app that finally could take me to Facebook so I could publish some photos and a blog-update.

At 6 pm we went to the Midi-Festival a bit outside the city. A very big festival with lots of bands playing there. Everything was really well arranged. We had some really crazy moments in our area we used as a dressingroom before the show. I was laughing so much at Christian, Thomas and Linnéa when they were turning the place into a nuthouse !! I filmed some of it ! 😀

At 08:40 it was showtime ! It was really overwhelming to get out there in front of the cheering of 10.000-15.000 people.

The gig was really great and everything worked perfectly. I really had to ”stop” for some moments, look out at the crowd and think to myself: ”Holy Shit – I´m in China !! This is really amazing” !!!
The audience was crazy about us and I saw many of the people singing along in the lyrics.
I had my Iphone prepared and filmed the audience before we left the stage.

We went back to the hotel and Jesse fixed som food for us, and then to bed.

Eftersom mitt inlägg om Psykisk Ohälsa drog till sig så pass mycket uppmärksamhet så fortsätter jag nu här: ….så vad hände sen då egentligen ? Hur gick egentligen efter det att ”mitt pussel” var färdiglagt ? Och vad kan man dra för slutsatser av det hela ? Jag vet inte till 100% men det spelar

Mental illness – My Story

Much too often I meet people who feel psychologically bad. Those are people who really do have a good life practically, economically etc ….. but still they feel bad, suffering from anxiety or depression. What is really ”required” to feel good ? Or maybe just to allow yourself to feel good? It can often be
