THERION in Russia, october 10-11, 2014

October 10


Had a single room which I didn´t have very much time to spend any time in anyway.

Christofer and I went downtown with a girl working for the promoter to buy some clothes and have a haircut.
I bought a pair of very regular jeans – ”F*ckin´expensive !!! I thought that they would be cheaper here than in Sweden !!? The most expensive jeans I´ve ever bought ! In Sweden I could get 3 pairs for that price looking much cooler than these ones ! Grrrr ! 😀

Christofer bought a white shirt and then we went for the haircut, I have never went to a more neat barber before !! They cut and cut and cut – but hardly no hairs were on the floor afterwards !!! 😀 Both Christofer and me have such thin hair !!
Back to the hotel and then away to the venue.

Here we did a really good gig !
The audience was f*ckin´great !
They went nuts !

We weren´t back to the hotel until after 01:00 am and at 06:30 we were gonna meet in the lobby for the trip to Ekaterinburg.

In Novosibirsk right before the show.

October 11

Off to the airport !
For the first time in a very very long time I managed to fall asleep for a while during the flight !
At the hotel in Ekaterinburg I had the best meal I´ve had in years !!! I´m not a very big ”food-freak” but this, I have to say, was fantastic ! The Russians are really good at cooking !
Thomas and me share room again. We have a good time together !

This show was in a bigger venue. Really good audience and a great gig !!! 🙂
On the way back to the hotel we suddenly went to some strange place for a stop !?

We all wondered ”What the hell are we doing here” ??
– It was time for sightseeing in the dark !!! 😀 Christofer and Masha wanted to have a look at some kind of wooden sculptures out in the forest !!?? 😀
Thomas and I followed them with flashlights to have a look ! – Very funny and strange !

Christofer & Masha having sightseeing in the dark to look at wooden sculptures !

Back at the hotel we had food again and then back to our rooms.
Tomorrow we can have proper sleep again !!! (y)

Linnéa was so exhausted after the show in Ekaterinburg that she fell asleep directly afterwards in the dressingroom.

10 År utan alkohol !

I samma stund som jag tog första steget ut från Capio Maria, Stockholm den 2:a Februari 2011 så föll den slutgiltiga poletten ner……. Det var inte en tanke, utan mer som någon slags uppenbarelse som bara ”slog till” och plötsligt så visste jag: ”Det är slut nu” – ”Jag kommer aldrig mer att dricka alkohol

9 År som Nykter !

Då har det gått 1 år till och jag är ”uppe på nio”…. Och står där, fortfarande stadigt ! Så har det varit sen den 2:a februari 2011. Och Nej – Jag är inte ”duktig” eller ”stark”. Jag skryter inte heller om det ! – Det var ett BESLUT jag tog, och jag är tacksam

9 Years of sobriety !

One more year has passed …. And I´m still here – sober ! This has been the case since February 2nd, 2011. But No – I’m not ” that fantastic” or ”strong”. I’m not boasting about it either! – It was a DECISION I made, and I am grateful that I finally got the insight

My Last Live Performance with THERION

I did my last live performance with Therion at Brutal Assault Festival, Czech Republic August 7th 2019. I made the final decision a couple of months ago, so everybody in the band and the crew knew this was gonna be my last appearance on stage with them. The reason is that the long touring is

8 År som ”Spik-Nykter” ! Hur blev det efteråt ?

8 År ! Tiden går fort ! Och den går ännu fortare när man trivs och har kul, säger man. Och jag har det faktiskt kul och trivsamt – även om livet förstås går lite ”upp-å-ner” ibland, eller ganska ofta. Men så är det att vara människa och leva i verkligheten. Inget konstigt med det.
