I used to complain that last fm connected me to these 17-year old swedish girls. I figured I should make a check up on what has happened since then. Well, these are my neighbors:
Fimpen: He says he is 30 yrs old, which very well could be the case looking at his music taste. He primarily listens to his old records it seems. Black GrapeSupergrass
and Broder Daniel
SannaMari: Says she is a she and that she is 24 yrs old. She listens to Björk and leftist politopop band Doktor Kosmos
- one of my big favourites. She is also a Laleh-fan...which is cool. I fell in love with Laleh
at a feminist festival in Stockholm and then she ended up sleeping in the sofa at my ex-girlfriends place for a while... ...which has nothing to do with SannaMari, because I prefer writing about me, but I think she is Finnish.
videoapelsin: 19yrs and pop. Very political at the top of his list with ImperietEbba Grön
and Svenska Akademien
... He likes Heartbeats
which is fantastic but the José Gonzales
version is actually my favourite, probably a bit more so because I am in San Francisco ( http://www.bravia-advert.com/
).... yeah. I like him, seems like a good young person. I feel old. but oh well, he has probably been to way more festivals than me so, I suppose he is the one who should patronise me.
RoteZora: I have a feeling this person is from Stockholm because all the bands on his/her list has played at the club Debaser. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think so.
WishPish: Well, Hannes, I understand that the computers connected us. But what is this thing about listening to Slayer all of a sudden? We don't listen to music like that. We don't like it. And what will the neighbours say? (I bet some brother or sister borrowed your computer.
rak.scl: My only non-swedish neighbor at the moment. I am so greatful. Viva Chile Carajo!
So, all my neighbors are no longer 17-year-old swedish girls. They are swedish and male. Interesting...or what ever.
