Semi

I’m just silly enough to let inspiration hit when I have one of my busiest work weeks this summer, which in practicality means no sleep. But one of my best piano pieces for the new album (which is closing in on the finish line for the curious one) needs mixing so here I am. Sleep and me will meet sometime next week, I’m not worried.

I don’t have a lot of pics since I tend to go deep when in inspiration mode which means no time for selfies or photos of any kind, but I will leave you with my semicolon ring in support of mental illness everywhere, because, let’s face it, always needed.

Some downright Shakespearean pics.

Here are some pics from my performance as the super-wicked (not the good wicked kind) Gråsida. To make it incredibly obvious, I not only have the darkest clothing but the blackest hair and make up too.

And the kids really shouted at me how mean I was and applauded when I got captured, hight praise for my villain interpretation indeed.

I probably blatantly stole a lot from the Marvel-version of Loki . The Loki of the original myth does not feel unfairly treated, his genes (giants hate asgardians) just get the best of him. And in the words of Tom Hiddleston on film Loki, and as you can see in one of the pics, (I’m screaming so loud I’m forcing the poor guy down) I just want some bitches to kneel…

Much ado about something

It’s been a busy few weeks. When I’m not mixing I’m once again part of Theatre week in Skaraborg. This time it’s familiar grounds. I got wind of the fact that this time, the show would be set in Ekehagen (my work place, yes) and it was gonna be Shakespeare again. Much ado about nothing. But set in the stone age. Well, I love Shakespeare and I know my way around Ekehagen so heck yes. As soon as I said I was interested I got clear directives. “Here’s your script, you’re the Bad Gal with a capital B”. And once again; HECK YES! Being bad, you really get to play around with… pretty much everything.

The gender roles are completely switched (sort of illustrating a point too, because the men are quite annoying and weak), and I play the role that Don Jon had in the original. Good warrior, but jealous, hateful and narcissistic. I carry the biggest, heaviest warrior weapons (making up for something, I’m sure) and I’m a master manipulator.

Another fun aspect of the job is I get to play advisor since I actually work there, so when someone wants to know something about the stone age to get deeper into character they come to me.

In the pic below, I’m in full get-up, and I scared a kid like that. Not on purpose. He decided to sneak backstage and as he did, I appeared from the back room in the gear you see below for the first scene. I don’t know who was more surprised, the kid, or me hearing that unexpected scream…
