In the news – Lithuania going mad

While we worry about our collective economy, Lithuania is quietly going insane. The parliament has overturned a presidential veto and a law which “would ban the public dissemination of information considered harmful to minors” has been passed, covering “material on homosexuality, bisexuality and polygamy, as well as depictions of violence and death”.

It is called the “law on the protection of minors against the detrimental effect of public information” – apparently 50 years of Soviet oppression has been forgotten? I could comment on the rest of that article, but it seems pretty pointless. Passing that kind of law is a clear indication that democracy, free speech and personal freedom is not high in the political agenda. Also, further commentary would consist mainly of expletives.

Living out of a suitcase

I don’t intend for this to become a diary or something (at least not yet), but… Well I just moved, again. Me and my heart throb are living out of a few suitcases and bags with the majority of our stuff in bags and boxes in a friend’s garage. Currently, we rent a second hand apartment for two months – we have no idea where we will live on September 1st.

So, stressful times all around basically. I continue to look for employment while rehearsing with Keyo for our upcoming gigs and recording sessions. We currently have four gigs during the Malmö Festival and one in Lund a week later – this should provide some very good exposure for Keyo’s music. On the 4th of August we go into Studio Bengt in Lund to record as many of the songs as we can. It will be exhausting, but with discipline and good pacing we can do it.

Exact dates and times will be added to the gig page soon. Take care.

An observation on modes of speech

At a certain distance, when the words are no longer separated clearly, an argument, a mediterranean conversation and rap music become indistinguishable from each other.
