Tuska festival

Hi all,

This weekend its time for Helsinkis big metal festival, TUSKA again and I wish I could be there. But since I am so late in the pregnancy I dont want to risk anything and have to stay at home this time. But for those of you living close by I can recommend it.

Marco and Tarot are gonna play in the main stage on friday and I know it will be something special.

Also my dear Pain are playing the same day and also they have some special things for you;=)

So if you go, enjoy and take lots of photos so I can see the action even not being there;=)

Freckles;=)

Hi all,

I so hope you, as me, have a wonderful summer with lots of sun and swimming;=) I have been lying by the pool all day and now I have so beautiful freckles in the face, just like my favourite girl, Pippi Longstocking;=)


My son were in the pool all day and he was so tired when we got home and when we said we will lie by the pool tomorrow too, he said: AGAIN?? He he...;=)

Kids of today.... when I grew up I lived in the lake all summer and my father had to drag me up in the evenings since I refused to go up. My lips had turned blue and I were shaking from cold but no way I wanted to get up;=) I still love to be in the water if its hot enough;=)

I wish you all a nice evening!

Wedding day;=)







(photos borrowed from expressen.se)
So now our beautiful Crown princess Victoria has gotten her Daniel and from now on, he is Prince Daniel;=)

The wedding ceremony was so touching and I cried as always in weddings. Especially when Daniel cried some tears after the rings were put on. Touching and they really seem to love each other so much;=)

My evening continues watching the celebration with the dinner etc and today its a day full of love;=)

Schools out!

Today it was time for my son to do the last day in school for this semester. Now it´s 10 weeks of summer break and the kids were so happy singing and just running home to be free;=)

I loved summer breaks when I was a kid and just to feel that I could sleep as long as I wanted, swim every day, play with my friends and just be, that was the high-light of the whole year.

So let´s celebrate the kids and their school break with some Alice Cooper and the Muppets;=) Enjoy!

When you are a cat...

there are days that aren´t going so very good;=)

- sitting in the window at 5 in the morning, tail hits mums favourite flower vase -bom! Hits the floor and ends in many pieces. Sorry;=(

- Lying on top of the armchair, sleep so deep - bom! Falls down to the floor by accident... autch! No fun awakening there...;=(


Today it´s hard to be my cat Stjärnan, I guess sunday the 13th for her means "unlucky day";=) To make her feel better and all of us, here´s some music - Kari Rueslåtten with When lillies bloom on winter days. Enjoy!!

Peter "Pain" 40 years!

Oh, I so forgot yesterday to put in a post to celebrate Peter Tägtgren in Pains 40th birthday, but here we go!

Peter, just home from a long tour with Hypocrisy in the States, got 40 years of young age yesterday and I want to send him all my happy b-day wishes and hope he had a really super nice day;=)

I have worked with Peter and also been on tour with him and he is such a nice and professional person. Working with him in the studio was a thrill and he is fast and really knows what he is doing. I also loved the way he mixed my voice. Tack kära Peter!

To celebrate Peter, let´s listen to some of his music:
Follow me;=)


Shut your mouth;=)


End of the line;=)


On and on;=)


Just hate me;=)


And one of my absolute favourites - Bye/Die:


Hypocrisy - Eraser;=)


Hypocrisy - Scrutinized;=)

Finally some sun!

Here in Sweden its been so warm and summery weather in every area except where I live for a long time. We have had rain and rain and grey and rain...and cold;=(

But today I woke up and the sun is just shining so nicely from a blue sky;=) finally!! Summer might be late but hopefully "she" is here now;=)

Since I get some questions now and then, here are some answers to them:

About the project with Fredrik and Martijn (Within temptation) its going forward and I have recorded one song that is with Martijn for mixing at the moment and I look forward to hear it soon. The project album is also discussed with record labels at the moment and as soon as we know more I promise to tell you who more will be involved etc.

To those who ask about Nightwish, the plans are as I have told before: Tuomas demo is finished and ready. In july-september we go and rehearse the songs together and do a final demo. Then the recordings start and my part will be recorded early next spring. So everything is going just according to the plans and its exciting times ahead;=)

The anti-mocking song I recorded together with the swedish metal elite last autumn is mastered and ready and will as the plan is now, be released as a single in august.

On a more personal level: me and the baby is doing just fine. The baby is growing according to the curve and lying with the buttom down at the moment. My belly is not super big but it has grown quite fast the last weeks. We are awaiting our newest member in the summer and its exciting to be a mum again;=)

Now, coffee time! Enjoy your day everyone!
