This is me at my worst. My main profile picture was taken about an
hour ago and I had just walked into my apartment after spending 36
hours driving a truck and doing sound/lightning at two flash-discos
between Lund and Gothenburg. So it doesn't get much worse than
this. Why did I do that? Because I try to never say no to an
adventure, otherwise I'd just spend way too much time in front of a
What I’m doing with my life
I work full-tijme as a computer programmer and in my spare time I
try to learn new things, help out at concerts or try to find new
interesting things to try. I do not have a plan for the future - at
most I have plans a month in advance. Luckily my job allows me to
take a day or two of at a short notice if I feel like travelling
I’m really good at
I am a sound engineer at concerts, light programmer at discos and I
pretend that I know computers. I can play a little guitar and I can
find my way using a map. I have cooked food for hundreds of people
and repaired my own clothes. I have built my own electronic devices
and welded a cart for a weld. I would say that I know how to do a
lot of things but that I am not an expert at anything...
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I am rather tall. And of course my handsome-ness
followed soon by my humble-ness (sorry, that's probably top-three
oldest jokes in the history of mankind. But how else to answer a
question like that?).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lots of fantasy - Martin, Abercrombie, Pratchett etc.
Historical/factual books are also read.
I'd watch just about any movie but prefer movies that makes sense
but makes you think. Some older examples of what I mean are 12
Monkeys, Memento and Sixth Sense - they tie it all together in the
end (I was a bit disappointed in Fight Club for this reason since I
felt like a lot of scenes didn't really make sense after the big
Music? I work at discos in Lund at times and excuse me while I
fetch my cane and grumble like an old man, but I prefer
artists/groups that play real instruments with real skill. Other
then that I am one of those that actively listens to the lyrics of
the songs I hear and if I really like it tries to find out more
about the song and what it's really about etc.
Food? Good food is important, I like to cook (alone or with others
- but it is more fun to cook when I am not the only one eating
it...) what more is there to say about it? I don't really have a
favourite meal and recently it has mostly been quick dinners - but
never pre-fabricated food...
The six things I could never do without
I do feel a bit handicapped without Internet - but I don't really
have anything I cant do without. I tend to accept situations and
make the best of it :)
And I do like to misinterpret questions like these. I think it has
to do with all that programmers education - answer the question
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How stuff works. How is the bathroom I am in tiled? How is this web
page made? How do small book-stores stay in business? How would a
money-less society work? And of course the standard "what should I
have done/said in that situation"?
On a typical Friday night I am
somewhere doing ... something. This last month (roughly) I have
spent my Fridays in Dublin, Stockholm, Gothenburg and in my couch.
I have no respect for Friday nights - I can work, travel, just stay
at home or party - and it's usually not very well planned.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I admit mostly anything to someone in a conversation if asked or
the other one really wants to know. But never to the internet in
