You Better Die Young

Posted in Uncategorized on December 6, 2015 by Sara Hammerzmith

Another day filled of absolutely nothing. I’m starting to get really sick, and that is, if you ask me, very very bad now in the last few weeks I have to work up money for Australia. But it always works out in the end.

I’ve spent most of my sick days with Jennie lately, mostly because I need people to hang out with lately when going through hard stuff. What do you do when people give up on you.

On a brighter note, I’ve finally gotten myself more of a smartphone. My old Sony Xperia Mini thingywingy is on his last breaths, so it’s time for it to retire. I’ll miss it sooo much, since I love the keyboard on it, but it’s getting to difficult to work with. The hardest part about it all is choosing a case. I don’t wanna open and start the new phone before I have a case for it… but oh, the possibilities.

And I also need to buy some last CD’s before this year is over. But which ones?

Ni Som Stannar Kvar

Posted in Uncategorized on December 4, 2015 by Sara Hammerzmith

What I have a hard time comprehending is how close Australia is getting. And how close everything else is getting. It’s about a mere month until I’ll see my boys in SlipKnot again, it’s a mere month before I land on Australian soil, about a mere month before I, or we, will go on our biggest trip yet in our lives.

I must admit I’m a bit nervous, mostly because of economic reasons, but for some reason, it always works out for us.

On another not, festival summer is also starting to shape up. We are in the final stages on deciding on what festivals we’ll do, and that makes me beyond happy. Now I’m just going to await the concerts for next year.

2016 will be amazing.

Non Stop Rock n Roll

Posted in CDs, Music, Uncategorized on December 3, 2015 by Sara Hammerzmith

I’m going to talk a bit about this album, “Non-Stop Rock n Roll”. I have talked about it before I’m sure, but seriously…

I recently re-discovered the album on our way down to Gothenburg to catch HammerFall and Civil War, as we decided to bring a CD from every shelf. Seeing Wig Wam has it’s own shelf, the choice was easily made. I can honestly say that “Non-Stop Rock n Roll” is by far Wig Wam’s best album ever made.

I’ve always been of the opinion that Wig Wam sort of re-made their albums over and over again, but improving them. Like, “Wig Wamania” was a new version of “Hard to Be a Rock n Roller” and thus, “Non Stop” becomes a better version of “Wig Wamania”. And seriously… This is one of my personal favorites as far as albums goes.

It starts off like a punch in the stomach with “Do You Really Wanna Taste It?” and continues on with the a bit heavier and rougher “Walls Come Down”. After this comes two more, to the music, happier songs – “Wild One”, which, despite the cheery music, is not a very happy song. “C’Mon Everybody” is the other one. And then it comes.

“Man in the Moon”

Like… Where do I even begin with this song? This is essentially the new “Bygone Zone” which is absolutely fantastic, but “Man in the Moon”… I get both extremely happy when I hear it, but I also feel like crying. I’m not even sure how to explain… The mixture of the music, the lyrics and Glam’s voice just makes it… epic. For being such a scaled down song. The melody line in the chorus is to die for…

“Still I’m Burning”… I love this song. It’s a more upbeat song, and most importantly – it features Teeny on vocals. For some reason, the more albums came out, the more the other members started singing. The song is… how do I explain this. It’s rough, almost a bit possessive, needing, craving. God I love it’s intensity.

And now… I’m going to talk about the best song on the album.

“Rocket Through My Heart”.

It might be hard to believe that this one is my favorite, considering what I wrote about “Man in The Moon”, but honestly… This song is… it has this low profile. When I hear this song, I think of summer. I think of festivals, I think of sitting in the park with a drink in your hand with your loved ones, catching the eye of that person that is or at least could be your lover, listening to an old school stereo. It has this 80’s vibe, this… how do I write this. I can’t. It’s just… perfect in so many ways without being particularly difficult, experimental or extreme. It’s just the perfect song for a perfect night.

Seriously. Wig Wam may be long gone, and I might not listen to this band at all as much as I should nowadays, but this album.. this album my friends. Some of the best bits, I tell you.

Revenge is Sweeter

Posted in Uncategorized on December 1, 2015 by Sara Hammerzmith

The beautiful thing with The Veronicas, is the fact that I very rarely listen to them unless things like this happens. When a person takes his frustration out, and decides to wreck your every day life upside down. When he’s handling in affection, and won’t listen to what you say and handles without reason.

When a person like him thinks it’s more important to have derranged views than keeping someone they once claimed they cared for. When a person thinks you are too annoying because apparently, being passionate about something is also overreacting. And that this quality of yours, is worse than everything else you have ever done for them.

When you have done things for a person no one else could, because they don’t have the geographical location, the resources or the brain to even come up with these kind things, when none of this matters anymore because you are too passionate for their taste…

When you have gone through thick and thin, forgiven every single bad step he ever made, and even though that person went behind your back,  and you forgave him repeatedly, but he feels that none of this is worth it.

When that person, wants so badly to get rid of you, but also so badly hold on to you he openly admits that he’ll stalk you… well, here’s to you! Here’s a blog entry entirely dedicated to you. You are much welcome.

And it’s always in moments like this, The Veronicas are the best kind of music. I haven’t listen to this song since 2009, when Elias left me. Oh good old days. Ah, I love The Veronicas.
