I'm in LA now

I didn't write another post before I left, as I said I might, but I'm not at my final destination yet, so here comes one now, about my trip.

Everything has went well so far. The train to the first airport was not a direct-train as planned, cause of construction work. So I took a train from Halmstad ti Laholm (a 10 minutes ride), then replacement bus from Laholm to Ängeholm, and then train from Ängelholm.

I spent a few hours at Copenhagen airport, since I got there at 1am, and the lpane left at 7. So I watched the entire first season of The Walking Dead on DVD, and I have also watched most of season 4 of Jersey Shore during this trip so far.

The a flight from Copenhagen to London, then London - Los Angeles. I'min LA now, waiting for my flight for Sacramento. But I'm fine with waiting, because I'm in California again, so everything is fine :)

Movie weekend

By the end of last week I had four days off from work, and that a luxury I haven’t had in a very long time. I spent it by doing nothing. Well, I did a few things, and mainly watched movies.

 

Friday was Friday the 13th , me and Andreas decided to watch horror movies. Since it was so bright in the day, we decided to watch the more humoristic movies first, and then go on to the more serious ones once it got darker. We saw a total of five movies the first day, and three on Saturday. Saturday we also went to see a soccer game, Halmstad’s first home game this season, and they won against Degergors.

 

Here is a summary of the movies we watched, in order of when we watched them.

Bad taste

One of Peter Jackson’s first movies. Splatter, aliens, zombies, blood, brains, weapons. Everything is so poorely done that it’s good, and that’s the point. A classic!

Stan Helsing

Parody of different horror movies, kind of like the Scary Movie-movies, but better. Decent story and characters, and of course kinda silly.

Grade: 3 sexy clothes changes, out of 5

 

 


Alien vs Predator

A mixture of the two monsters, in snow. Never really cool, still a decent movie, but not more.

Grade: 2 mini-mouths, out of 5

 

 


Battleship

We saw this one in the theaters. It was premier weekend for this movie based on the board game Batlle Ship (!), featuring Rihanna and Alexander Skarsgård. The movie kept a fine line between very good and totally silly, but always stayed on the right side. A nice action movie, oh yes, but not as good in total. Still good.

Grade: 3 marine veterans, out of 5

 

 


The hills have eyes

This movie is on the list of “most disturbing horror movies”. And it was. It so sick, uncomfortable and… disturbing. It’s sick and perverted (and not in a good way).

Grade: 4 unfortunate flat tires, out of five

 

 


The Hangover Part 2

(Saturday we could watch other movies than horror movies). The first movie was really good, but this one is not. It’s exactly like the first one, but more brutal, and in Thailand. In the first one, everything was nicely linked together, but that’s not the case here. Still pretty entertaining.

Grade: 2 Mike Tyson tattoos, out of 5

 



Cowboys and Aliens

Two genres that doesn’t go along. And they didn’t. An okay western-story, but the alien parts don’t work. It get plus points for the good actors, who are trying to make the best of it.

Grade: 2 futuristic bracelets, out of 5

 

 


Ju-on

(Japaneese The Grudge)

I have seen the American verison, and that is pretty scary. This one is not. I’ve also seen the Japaneese The Ring-movies, and I can now say that Japaneese horror doesn’t work in the West. It’s not scary! And this movie is sooo repetitive, and you get bored.

Grade: 1 kid that can sound like a cat, out of 5

 

I will probably have time for one more blog post before I leave for America. Oh, it’s so soon! Sweet!


A very different Easter

This Easter didn’t turn out they way it was planned. Sure, I had great times with parties, dinners, lunches, a lot of Easter food and I worked and earned a lot of extra money.

 

But everything was overshadowed by the fact that my grandfather passed away.

 

Grandpa, mom’s dad, was an active man who played tennis, took care of his business’, worked in the forest and filled in as a tour guide at the Flygt museum. He wasn’t old for being 85 or, on the contrary. That’s why this is so surprising and unexpected.

 

When I grew up, I spent most of my summer days at grandma and grandpa’s summer place on the island Öland. Sometime from school ended in June till it started again in August.

 

Grandpa has meant a lot to me growing up. So this is just so, so sad. Thankfully they managed to get the funeral before to be held before I go to America.


Long walk and epic burgers

A lot of work, as usual, but I have some days off from time to time. Like this weekend. Sunday me, Andreas, Henric and Linda went out for a long, long walk. We walked Prince Beryil’s Path, a 10 mile track from the Castle, along the coast line with its bays and capes, up till Tylösand.

 

It was a bit windy, and a little cold, but still nice walking weather. Once we got back to the city (by bus) the rain started to pour down, so we were a bit luck there.

 

We had time for a neat picture too.

 

Later that evening we went home to Henric as usual, to watch Big Brother and eat an epic meal. This time we had homemade hamburgers with a sauce made from goat cheese and honey, and also frisco bread and paprika potatoes. Amazingly tasty.
