Yesterday me and a friend of my went shopping for my first serious barbeque this summer. His second. When we were walking around in the super market, a girl sneaked up behind and said:
“You look a lot like Martin Stenmarck“
I guess that I looked very confused then, didn’t really know what to say. The girl seemed to notice that and added:
“And that was meant to be a compliment”
Murmured some kind of “thank you”, and she left. Then I started to think about it. Could it really be like that? I have always thought that he might be the guy in Sweden who receive more “proposals” than anyone else. Which is a lot more than me.
So, what do you think?
No, unfortunately not. I guess that you have to have as bad eyesight as girls around 85 years old to not notice the differences…
The mastermind behind the very promising project called Nitepack,, André, are doing some other stuff as well. Football and stocks for example. And he is also the bass player of The Driftwood Sign. They are right now competing with 17 other bands about some really good shows.
And this is where the democratical rights comes in. You vote for the winner in this competition. So, just surf to this Facebook page, find the post with The Driftwood Sign and like. Just as simple as that.
On the behalf of André, thanks for your support!
We never really announced a specific release date for The white EP. Such things becomes kind of fuzzily nowadays, since at least a band like us doesn’t have the opportunity to demand a specific release date from our distributors.
Well, when you upload the music there is actually a text field where you can write a desired release date. But if the album really should be released on this date, it have to be much later. And that’s not really necessary, guess it’s much better if the music becomes available as soon as possible. Today I listened to a a swedish radio show with Daniel Ek, you know, the guy who brought us Spotify. He was really convinced about that more and more artists will do like we do, release less songs but more often.
Anyway, just saw that our latest release now is available from Spotify, Amazon, Musicload and DigiAntilla.com. More services will offer it in the nearby future. So, surf to them and listen, buy, rate, review, share and whatever you can do with the tracks!!
A few days ago, Neste Oil (who I have written about here and here), made a minor attempt via Twitter to justify their actions. Ok, it was actually more than a week ago, but I saw it yesterday. Even though I work with IT stuff all days, I still haven’t managed to understand everything about Twitter. Anyway, this is their answer:
Of course, the fundamental and simple answer to this is “yes of course”. But with the reservation “not always with all means”. E.g., if someone tries to steal your wallet, it’s maybe not possible to justify to shot him down with a grenade launcher. But that’s a philosophical reasoning which I leave for now.
However, my point was that they are trying to focus on less important things than the major question, which is their use of palm oil in their “green diesel”. Which are made with desolated rain forests as a result (according to Greenpeace).
From my point of view, there are only two alternatives.
Greenpeace are completely right with their criticism, which makes the whole thing very bad for the environment. And everyone who use “green diesel” for fuel in their cars should be aware of that “green” in this context means that their cars moves forward by desolated rain forests, and not from any environmental benefits.
Or, Neste Oil might have different facts or ideas about the environmental effects. And then they should use this information to answer to the criticism, which would sound way more trustworthy. The way they act now seems more like some kind of confirmation that Greenpeace criticism is correct.
