At the Age of 31

So, to paraphrase Noah Britton, I was 30, and then I was 31, because that happens in life sometimes. On my birthday, which was really rather nice, I was made aware of this amazing video, made by "the guy from Little Huts" (check them out, kids):

(if anyone knows where the footage for this came from, please let me know!)

Moved by the above and by the beauty pouring out of everything, I also made this re-recording of the song.

It was earth all along!?

Lvl 2 Ape/Tesseract Unfolding

Short discussion on the theory that men are monkeys. Many implications made.
Written, recorded, mixed & produced during commercial breaks of House. Not saying it's a good thing. Just saying.

DJ: Hemlig

Late in May I was contacted by 4b as they needed a song to to play when it was time to dance tryckare at their upcoming disco (scheduled for end of August/beginning of September, they will of course be 5b by then). Here is the song I wrote and gave them: school, sweet school - (don't be an) asshole.

And, if you wonder, it is of course Tyskan who is playing the flute so beautifully at the end of the song.

Lo-fi X-mas

Happy holidays everybody! The Models Inc. collective as usual joins in on Joakim's (of The Baseball Field) annual lo-fi x-mas project. There are songs from Models Inc. (the band), school, sweet school, kindergarten kisses and the elusive Kapten Bligh, as well as from some of Nyköping's finest artists. The fun begins at Lo-fi X-Mas 2010.

Molly Mole – Andra Sommaren

Molly sent us a picture of her and School, Sweet School. Can you guess who is who on the picture (hint: one of them wears a dress which makes the wearer look like a dog)? The first to give the correct answer might win a School, Sweet School t-shirt (you can only guess once, and there is nowhere to send your guess to). (Eventuell vinstskatt betalas av vinnaren.)

It's been more than a year since we last heard from Molly Mole, the lyrical mastermind of Krashen and now the lyrical helping hand mastermind of School, Sweet School. We phoned her to see what she has been up to lately.

Q: Hi Molly! How are you doing?

A: It is OK. No problems. No problems at all.

Q: Being the sverigevän (“friend of the Swedes”) you are, what is your opinion on the recent election in Sweden?

A: I have always been saying that a population with such a high density of Evert Taube fans must be capable of horrible things. I think that this was proven to be correct.

Q: I guess you are right. We hear you have been back in Sweden a couple of times since the last time we spoke ...?

A: Yes, twice. Both times I've been recording new material. And I also took part in the annual School, Sweet School concert at Hinseberg.

Q: OK. Tell us a bit more, did you meet your friend Tyskan from your last visit?

A: Yes, we met and we recorded a song. A Christmas song, actually. It can be found here if anyone wants to listen to it. It was good fun. We talked a lot about runstenar. She seemed really into that.

Q: I hear you also celebrated her birthday. What did you give her?

A: I bought her a book. I think it was the latest novel by a Swedish author called Susanna Alakoski. It was in Swedish so I don't really know what it is about, but an old lady in the bookstore recommended it to me when I mentioned who was to get the gift. But after Tyskan unwrapped the present, she said she already had the book. Actually she had several copies of the book.

Q: Who would have known... How was your second stay?

A: It was good fun. Or not that much fun. But we recoded a song and played at the prison. Then I returned home. I can't stand being with the School, Sweet School people for more than a few days. The first day is OK, then it gets worse quite fast. Lobster Girl seemed in good shape, though. Oh, we took a bandfoto also, do you want to see it? I will send it to you! One of us wore a very special dress which makes you look like a dog. Good fun.

Q: Great, I will publish the photo with the interview (see above). Tell us a little bit about the song you recorded. You wrote the lyrics, what is it about?

A: Well, the song is called Pool Song, it is pretty good and you have no business in what it is about.

Q: OK. One last question, is it true that you are on the label of Systembolaget's 6589?

A: Yes.

Q: That is really good to know. Thank you and goodbye.

A: Au revoir.

Oh, and here is that song they recorded: School, Sweet School – Pool Song

Kindergarten hittar metronomen

Today, the foxes held a wedding where I "live," and I spotted a squirrel chasing a magpie and a pretty pretty bird. 'Tis the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. What better way to celebrate than a fresh mix of a semi-old (ca 1600s) tune? Do ask.
