Ferie = Lofoten + Palmesus

7 Jul

Imorgen er det endelig tid for ferie – det skal bli fantastisk deilig!

For første gang på veldig mange år skal jeg altså ikke på ferie til utlandet, men holde meg i Norge. Imorgen kl. 12 begynner ferden mot Lofoten, eller rettere sagt Steigen og en bitteliten plass som heter Grøtøy. Jeg og en kompis skal på en aldri så liten road trip oppover og det blir altså roughly 18 timer i bil før vi er fremme. Men vi skal (heldigvis) ta en overnattingsstopp på veien – nærmere bestemt i Trondheim.

Jeg gleder meg skikkelig kjenner jeg. Dette blir en ferie ganske ulikt noen andre ferier jeg har vært på. For en gangs skyld blir det bare avslapning og ro. Vi skal fiske, gå turer, spille kort, kanskje bade (får nå se på temperaturen da…) og bare nyte den fantastiske naturen. Det skal bli deilig! Jeg har sett bilder derfra og det er virkelig noe av det vakreste jeg har sett!

Så nå er det pakking på programmet – blir alt fra bikini til fullt regntøy. Finnes ikke dårlig vær…osv… 🙂 Dessuten har jeg hørt at fisken biter bedre i regnet!

Etter noen dager med dyrking av friluftsliv passer det jo fint med noe på andre enden av skalaen – nemlig litt festivalliv! 🙂 Neste fredag reiser nemlig jeg og en venninne på Palmesus festivalen i Kristiansand. Det blir nok veldig moro, og det er mye bra artister. Kelis, Fedde Le Grand, Veronica Maggio, Lars Vaular +++ Det er på bystranda i Kristiansand og er visst som et gedigent beachparty – og det beste av alt er at det er meldt soool alle dagene. Perfekt! Blir ikke verre av at jeg simpelthen elsker Kristiansands dialekten – finnes det noe bedre enn bløde konsonanderr (konsonanter)?

Ønsker alle en herlig sommer!

Lykke Li Love (and music in general)

Hands down
I’m too proud, for love
But with eyes shut
It’s you I’m thinking of
But how we move from A to B it can’t be up to me
Cause I don’t know
Eye to eye
Thigh to thigh
I let go

I think I’m a little bit
Little bit

A little bit in love with you
But only if you’re a little bit
Little bit
Little bit
In lalalala love with me
Oh ah

And for you I keep my legs apart
And forget about my tainted heart
And I will never ever be the first to say it
But still I, yes you know, I.. I… I…
I would do it
Push the button
Pull the trigger
Climb a mountain
Jump off a cliff
Cause you know baby I love you love you
A little bit

If you would do it
If you would say it
If you would mean it
That we could do it
If it was you and I, not only I
Ha hm

I think I’m a little bit
Little bit
A little bit in love with you
But only if you’re a little bit
Little bit
Little bit
In lalalala love with me

I think I’m a little bit
Little bit
A little bit in love with you
But only if you’re a little bit
Little bit
Little bit
In lalalala love with me
Ah oh

Come here, stay with me
Stroke me by the hair
Cause I would give anything
Anything
To have you as my man

Come here, stay with me
Stroke me by the hair
Cause I would give anything
Anything
To have you as my man

Little bit
Little bit
A little bit in love with you
But only if you’re a little bit
Little bit
Little bit
In lalalala love with me

Can’t wait to see her at Øyafestivalen in August. Her way with lyrics is truly amazing – the way she is able to express feelings so precisely makes her songs go straight to my heart. I have always been a lyrics junkie and can’t listen to music without starting to analyze them. I feel like songs without good lyrics lack something important, and that great music comes from the combination of good lyrics and a good melody. That’s not to say that I can’t enjoy music without great lyrics, but they’ll never be more than music for dancing or for playing in the background.

I LOVE music and seriously would not be able to live without it. But when someone asks me what my favourites are, I find it really hard to answer. I have so many! What I listen to depends on my mood and what is happening in my life at the time. I have periods with different genres. Right now I am coming out of a long period where I have listened to a lot of hip hop and am moving into more electronica but also soul. (Weird mix of genres – I know. Story of my life.)

Some of my current favourites:

Skrillex

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings

Ann Peebles

Dada Life

Robot Koch
