After this entry I will almost be up to date..! I have mostly been working with BatAAr and some other shit, like garden work lol! I've also bought some cheap booze.
The weather has been nice though!
My friend Tobias turned 21 so we decided to drink more than enough, he drank the most and blacked out before we even went to the club. And we had the pre-party at another guys house, but we left him on the floor and hit the club around 11PM, haha, best friends ever. But it was a pleasant evening.
I also realized that I only take pictures of the same kind of food, so if you're reading my blog it appears that I only eat bacon, pizza, burgers and pasta lol.
I haven't actually played all the Resident Evil games before, so I decided to play the first game and I have to admit that I got a few heart attacks during my game play. And I decided to play as Jill. (Lock pick, more inventory space, she's hotter and because of Jill Sandwich).
This was pretty OK for a first playthrough imo. The controls are so awkward, but I guess that adds to the horror atmosphere since you're more likely to run in a direction you didn't plan to lol. I ran in to a lot of shit like furniture and walls even thought I didn't plan to, since you press up to go forward in the direction of the characters face.
So if your character is looking towards you, pressing up would make you go towards the screen (which today would be the same as pushing down on the D-pad). I hope my explanation wasn't too hard to understand, but if you've played games before the previous console generation you'll know what I'm talking about.
Me and Patrik watched the E3 together (or well, we keep contact during at least) and we wasn't amused by this year, not at all. Everything looked terrible, except for a few games. I'm looking forward to "The Last of Us" and "Watchdogs" but that's all. Sony wins baby. Microsoft is also the worst thing to happen to the video game industry.
Nothing says video games like watching television on your Xbox.
DAAAAMN, sure is video games in here! Look at those video games!
Stole report card from 4chan, but I agree on pretty much all topics. I didn't bother to write my own.
This was written before Nintendo, but Nintendo was terrible. Nintendo Land? Seriously.
And the Nintendo twitter/skype shit, I don't wanna cam with some random guy if I don't know where to go next, I go to fucking YouTube or google that shit, Jesus Christ Nintendo.
And in the middle of E3 I went to my cousins graduation and had a lot of food.
It was a nice graduation lol!
Patrik bought a USB-vinly player (Me, him and Linda split on the price) and I decided to pack my DUM SPIRO SPERO LP so we could rip it. Vinly still has the best sound quality by far, you can hear everything, but I don't want to over play my vinyl, and it's also a hassle to move it all the time so it's great that we can rip it and have it properly on the computer.
We ripped UROBOROS as well, but it's much harder to rip vinly than regular CDs, since you have to do everything by yourself, and you have to try to put the volume as high as possible without the sound cracking, so there's a lot of trail and error, and when there's really silent parts you need to put up the volume to not make it skip recording that part etc. And you have to listen to the whole album since there's no way to speed it up, so it's a lot of work but the sound is amazing.
You can hear every cymbal, you can even hear Kyo breathing, that's how good the sound quality is. it's almost too good, but it's amazing to be able to hear the songs in such detail. So if you can get your hands on a USB vinly player you should definitely get one!
BatAAr was going to have their first live streamed concert ever! So this was a very special event, and I think it's pretty cool that everybody could watch it all over the world, so we had two busy days ahead of us!
The control room and some video equipment, we worked with some really professional guys.
Day two, we probably worked around 10-12 hours/day to get everything done. And decided to wear something more comfy! (and have some wine lol, nice breakfast)
I was chilling out with a dog when I had the time off. Louise, me and Seb decided to do some vocal warm ups. Most of the vocal warm ups sounds really silly but it really helps you maintain your voice. It will hurt less and you'll be able to go on much longer, it's something all vocalists should do, silly or not.
The control room, the sound was GREAT!
And we're live! BatAAr will be releasing a few clips and eventually the whole stream.
Just click on the video below to watch them perform their song "REFRAIN FROM YOUR PORCELAIN"
But the sound was great and we had a lot of great respons during the live stream!
I also did their hair but the clip is showing the last song so the hair is a bit messy haha.

The crew after the gig! Everybody was really happy and everything went great.
Can you spot me?!
Then it was time to leave and go back home. I heard some weird music and I looked out the window and saw this lol! And a little tip, if you're using a laptop, get a tray, it's easier to move your laptop and it won't get over heated. (You can have it in the bed etc). At least that's what I've done for a few years now haha.
And some work, I realized there was a hole in my boot. But it was a bit too late..
I also saw "family parking spaces" for the first time, at least this wide model. They're about twice as big as normal ones since some people decide to get stupid kids who slams the doors into other cars. It's very easy to park so I like it, haha. I also found heaven in the freezer at the local super market..!
I wrote a bit more than I use to this time, I hope it's appreciated and not so annoying.
