Ahh can you believe this?! I just came home from work. And my lovely Paula made Sopaipillas for me!
It’s a tradition bread from Chile made from pumpkin! It is the best!! Thank you love!! <3
Me and Elias are playing FIFA 12! Kalia is watching too.
4 days went fast. Back to reality tomorrow.. I don’t want to break this little bubble of mine..
I love spending time with my family. It is the best feeling in the world. Kalia, my lovely daughter is already growing fast. And that scares me a lot. One day I’m gonna look into her eyes and se a beautiful young teenager, exploring life on her own. I don’t want that to happen.. haha
I want her to be tiny and sweet forever. I want to feel her milky breath every morning, when she yawns. Ahh.. well. This is life!
My daddy and stepmother is coming to visit Stockholm on thursday. They haven’t seen our little wonder girl yet! It’s been a long time since I last saw them. They both live in Tromsö, Norway now. Together of course.
I had a nice time with Rasmus Ingdahl today. We went to Fåtöljen on Hornsgatan with the company of little Kalia, sleeping in her stroller. Then we went back to my place for some Forza 4 and Fifa 12! Awesome!
I’m going to pick up Skyrim where I last saved. 46 hours in.. I have only made 2 main quests. Haha.. there is just too MUCH to do in this awesome, game!
First I need a pink lady apple though.. They are THE BEST APPLES I HAVE EVER TASTED!!! If you can show me an apple strain that tastes better, then HOLLA at me!
Hey hey people!!
2011 ends in an hour.. I hope it has been a good year for you. For me 2011 was a year of change, preparing me for 2012. I have a lot of great things coming up this year! I am excited and I feel ready to face my new life. It is a big thing to become a father. People may think I am at a young age. But frankly I feel older than most 28+ year olds I meet. I have the greatest woman in the world who support and push me with everything I face. I love you Paula <3
I don’t need any new years resolutions. I have everything I can wish for. People and family I love, a lovely daughter (soon to come), health, money, a beautiful apartment, lots of talent and all the equipment I need to do everything I love to do! I love my life.
Let’s rock out this new year 2012 with loads of love and new AWESOME MUSIC <3
Double love and Salute!
I just have to tell you about my lovely night with my brother Simon. He came to visit from Malmö on wednesday. Paula told me she was sleeping at her mom’s place
and that I could have the whole apartment to myself, if I meet up with one of her customers and deliver a pair of shoes.
Around 21:00.. Someone is at the door. My first though was that it is probably the customer or maybe Simon who managed to catch an earlier flight. But when I open the door, there is a man smiling outside with the largest christmas bag I have ever seen.
- “John Svartberg..?”
- “Yes, are you here for the shoes?”
- “No.. I just wanted to tell you that someone loves you deeply..”
The man hands over the large bag and wishes me a merry christmas.
I’m thanking him and closing the door.
When I open the lovely bag, this is what’s inside!
Chips, dip, candy in all different forms, Red Bulls, Coca-Cola, Snickers, The Elders Scrolls: SKYRIM on 360 and a note that says “I love you, have a nice evening..” WHAT A LOVELY GIFT!! I was sooo chocked!! Paula knows me inside out!!
Thank you for a lovely gift! You are the best woman a young man can ask for! <3 Jag älskar dig!
Simon and I had some real catch up to do. It was so much fun to see each other again. You are missed here lil’ bro! I am so proud of you! Keep rocking at your school!
Have a nice day folks! And remember.. that I have the best woman in the world!
Sooo, long time no see!
I can say with good conscience that I have had my hands full for the last couple of weeks. Me and my colleges have been preparing for the grand opening on monday! I am looking forward to it! We have done an incredible job together! I’m proud, really proud of all you guys. Come visit us at Media Markt Gallerian this week!
Our little baby girl is feeling good and is very playful inside mom Paulas tummy. I don’t want to spoil the name just yet, but it is so beautiful, rare and exotic – just as we want her to be. <3 Daddy loves you the most!!
The music has been waiting for me for a while. I have found a new DAW for my studio setup that I really enjoy working in, PreSonus Stuio One. It has a very easy and effective workflow that reminds me of Ableton Live. But still the advanced features of let’s say, Logic Studio. I have only worked on one track so far, but I really like the sound. I’ll come back with a better review later when I’m more into it! But so far it is really good, and I am very surprised about that actually, since I have barely heard about it. But as far as I know, more and more people are moving over to Studio One. Teddy Riley is one of their proud users. And he is one of the greatest influences in modern music.
I have finally got my new phone!! Let me just say that I love Telenor for sending me an iPhone 4s for free, since the delay was almost 5 weeks!! Thank you so much! I’ll recommend you to every costumer I’ll talk to. The camera in this phone is the best one I have ever used in a phone!
Today it’s time to finish my remix for Drylight. Me and Daniel (the singer) are talking about maybe do a new collab together. That would be awesome!
That was all for now folks!
Have a great sunday.
So tomorrow is the day. We are leaving for one week in beautiful Spain. My cold is almost over.. Good times!
Last night Paula and I watched a movie I totally missed in the 90s.. Primal Fear with Richard Gere and Edward Norton (his first movie). What an excellent thriller. Usually I’m not in to thrillers at all, but this is an amazingly clever movie. The last scene made my jaw drop down to my knees.. Even though I thought I was pretty sure about how it would end, it came back an kicked me in the ***. Excellent work Edward! I loved it!
The fall is lurking around the corner here in Stockholm. I hope the weather is good in Alicante. I want to lay in the sun, listen to music and drink a few San Miguel, now that is vacation. Now it is time to pack my bags!
And yeah, btw.. my cover of Shy Remixed, featuring my remix of Broken Hearts is next to miss Kelly Rowland on iTunes!
Damn this cold I say.. I too fell victim for this damn “end of summer cold”. I managed to ignore it for a week, even though Paula got really sick..
Well, I have been mostly sleeping the whole day. I feel slow and my whole nose is clogged. We are leaving on wednesday, so I really hope I get well before we take off, or else my ears will implode or something.
But you can imagine how much I’m looking forward to my little cupcake!! I am so looking forward to become a father, I think I will be the best dad ever! I love the fact that I will be about 43 years old when she/he turns 20. I’ll still be a good looking hunk, right Paula darling?!
Now it is finally time to begin my adventure in Arkham Asylum. I have heard so many great things about this game.. Countless game of the year awards! Excited!
(yeah I know it is 2 years old..)
I hope everything is good with you.. I’m fine as fine can be! From Dusk Till Dawn is on TV, I’m watching it! Paula is trying to sleep her headache of, she has been complaining about it all day long.. I feel so bad for her.
Yesterday I had my last class at SAE. It has been a fun course. I definitely would recommend it to people who want to learn about music production. It is never to late! Big cudos to Joy Deb who has been a great teacher and a superb feedback source. I hope we get to work together in the future man! I will really miss class!
For the last couple of days I have been playing Oblivion like a hardcore RPG geek! I’m warming up until Skyrim arrives! I REALLY CAN’T WAIT!! I have checked every video about it, and it looks AWESOME!!! It will probably receive tons of game of the year awards, like always! Right Tod Howard?!
Well I still feel fantastic! Me, Paula and her family are going to spain in 5 days! It will be so nice with one more week of vacation.
Paula and I visited the doctor yesterday. We went there for another ultrasound. Our little cupcake is so cute. <3 I can’t wait until you are here next to me.
Damn it! People are so loud on fridays when they “party”.. Or at least their pathetic excuse for what they call party. Grown ups are walking around drunk on the streets and shouting like f**king idiots! And girls actually find them attractive..? We have our living room and bed room with windows against the street, so fridays and saturdays is kind of a pain in the ass. Anyways..
Bye for now!
Hi there my mini agendas!
Hope everything is fine with you. I feel like a million bucks! I have been for the past month.. It feels like everything is falling into place. My intense course I told you about is nearly finished. On friday I have my final showdown!
It is going fine at SAE. We are only weeks from finishing the course. My final arrangement is done and ready for a test listening in Studio 1 on thursday.
Liam is playing Lego Star Wars, and Paula is adding some new color to her hair at the moment. I think we will go for chinese lunch today!
I started playing Uncharted Drake’s Fortune last night. You can really tell that it is from 2007. It looks really good in a charming sort of way. Strong colors and lots of focus shifts in the in-game videos. It really feels like a combination of Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones. Awesome! Just what kind of game I was looking for. I also have the second game ready, when I finish the first.
Now it is time for lunch! Talk later.
Have you guys ever used Tradera? It’s like the swedish e’Bay. It is addictive as hell. Haha! I usually buy video games there! I recently bought the first and second Uncharted game, since I still haven’t played them yet.. Yeah, I am kind of ashamed about that.. I really look forward playing through them both! I also got the Need for Speed Shift 2. It looks really good and is a good completion from Gran Turismo 5, since GT5 is more of a simulation and Shift 2 a “semi-simulation” with an arcade twist feeling. The last NFS I played through was Need for Speed: Underground.. that was a loooong time ago, right?!
At the moment I’m watching Sharkville on National Geographic HD. Paula is asleep beside me and Liam is playing with his trains and little cars on the floor. It has been a good day so far. Erling, Paulas dad is coming to pick up Liam in an hour, he really wanted to visit his grandparents.
I’m really looking forward to the Shy Remixed release on friday!! I’m so proud of my remix of Broken Hearts. From the first time I heard the original BH I fell in love. Since this is a track with a little dedication to me. So when I heard that I actually was going to remix it, I got really excited about it. I made the arrangement in about 5 hours over a night. And then I continued with the track on the next day with some help and ideas from Paula. She actually came up with the lowpass filter idea on the chorus and that made the track so much more dynamic!
I really hope you would like to support it on friday! It will be available on iTunes and Beatport. It will probably take about 2-3 weeks before it is released on Spotify, I’ll keep you posted about that too.
