The World Is A Thorn

The World Is A Thorn Widget: "Demon Hunter The World Is A Thorn Widget"

Music, movies and malfunctioning hardware

Hi fellas.

Wow. I just read a note that Demon Hunter put up on their Facebook page, apparently the Deluxe Edition of their upcoming CD The World is a Thorn is almost sold out. I'm so glad I ordered mine in time. It will be sweet. If you haven't heard the new song [url=http://www.facebook.com/notes/demon-hunter/a-note-re-the-world-is-a-thorn-deluxe-box-edition/322261387053]Collapsing[/url] yet, check it out! It features Björn "Speed" Strid from Soilwork and is just amazing.

That's it for the music part. Now: Movies. The last three days I've watched 3 different movies.

  • Sunday: The Godfather
  • Monday: The Informant
  • Tuesday: The Godfather Part II
Now, what's the deal about the Godfather? Everyone says it's so good but I just can't see it. Sure they are good movies.. But really, they are too long and lack continuity so much.. Might just be me. But eh, 3/5 @ Filmtipset.

The Informant? Well it was alright I guess, great story but meh. Didn't enjoy it too much. Probably a 3 as well. Maybe even a 2. Hmm.

Now: Malfunctioning Hardware

My dads Graphics card stopped working. Or well, the drivers bugged. Read up about it and found a whole bunch of solutions to the problem, but specific solutions only worked for specific individuals. Or something. After trying a few I gave up and we decided to order a new card instead. Now it runs like a clock. Never seen a clock run though.

Now I don't have much else to say. I really just want things to change. Somehow. But how?

The Tide Began To Rise

It's 4 am. I just watched a movie. The Time Traveler's Wife.

I didn't think I would like it. But I did. To rate it in numbers.. It's probably a 3 out of 5 over at Filmtipset. A strong 3 that is.

It's a great story. Quite unique.

But what caught my attention the most is how I could relate to it. No I'm not saying I'm a time traveler, nor someones wife. But it reminds me of my dreams of the future. Of my fears. My deepest fears.

Fears I've had for well over 10 years now. Fears I subconsciously get reminded of every single day due to my flaws.

If this is all the love my spirit can give... Just take it back tonight..
There is not a reason more to live..

Somehow we will get rid of the inside.. The inside..

In other news.. I will try to stop the emoness. Next blog will be more cheerful, or about tech or something else. Those lyrics up there. The text that's in italic that is. It's from the song The Tide Began To Rise. By Demon Hunter. Beautiful song in so many ways. I've told you before and I'll tell you again. Check that band out if you haven't already.

Time for bed. Perhaps.

You are the forsaken

Everything is weird. Everything. I can't explain how much I am looking forward to the future. To change. To something new. But there are demons in my past that I can't get rid of just yet. I care too much about them.

These demons are the ones I've cared the most about. These demons are amongst the few that's ever had the guts to say they care about me. But somehow most of them have siphoned into the shadows and now they seem unreachable. The worst part? I don't even know how I managed to let them go. But I guess it's when they are the closest you take them for granted, and you won't even have time to react before they are gone.

Some of them are just hard to reach. Some pretend you don't exist. Some laugh you straight in the face when you come crawling back to them. No remorse. No pity. But I brought this upon myself. So I will have to deal with it.

That is all I had to say today. Meh.

Our selfishness consumes us, until the whole world is not enough.
Forgive the day that I erased, that I erased your name.
For it's the memory of me that will decay

I know you are the forsaken
Somehow we are the ones who feel alone

as a tourist in my own head

That's what my autobiography is going to be called. If I ever put the effort into writing one.

I came up with the name after pointing myself in the eye, with my FINGER thank you very much, Mr.Harcourt. I just watched another movie! Wow, best one so far I think. Don't even remember the last two I wrote about but man, this one is way better. It's called Law Abiding Citizen and it's about this crazy guy and this other guy that tries to stop the crazy guy but the crazy guy keeps outsmarting him so that he almost goes crazy but eventually the crazy guy (the second one) gets the crazy guy (the first one) and makes him pay for all the craziness. I strongly recommend that you check it out, especially if you like some 'smart' thrillers. It sort of reminds me of Prison Break, the season (the only one I watched), but it feels even smarter.

Wow. Anyways. Uhh. I'm hungry, and I don't really know what to do about it. Well I know "what" to do, but I don't have any tools for that specific task. So, yay me.

Bedtime soon I supposed, just felt like updating this readerlessblog. Woop.

No crossroads to nowhere left.

Tonights movie: Road of no return

Trailer looked interesting, let's see what it is :)

The name of this blog, might look weird. But there is a reason for it. You see, there are three bands that I like very much. Bands which I count as my favorites.

All three of these bands latest albums had bonus tracks with the word 'road' in the title. I found it funny. These are also some of my favorite songs from those bands.

Road to Nowhere, Crossroads, No roads left..

The Box

And the verdict is...


Pardon my French.

Some live so wrong. In a box. With fear.


I said something about a personal blog the other day but meh. Nothing exciting has happened so I got nothing to write about. I'm going to watch The Box (in 1080p HD *drools*) now and might come back to review that one.. Or something..

Oh btw, if you're interested in what movies I like, you can check out my Filmtipset page by clicking here! For those of you that don't know, Filmtipset is a Swedish website where you can rate movies and others can check what you think about different movies and whatnot..

And if you're interested in what music I'm listening to you can check my little Last.Fm widget to the right of this text!

Talk to you soon. Perhaps.
