Uppsala Cathedral (Sweden)

I spent a day and a night in Uppsala, Sweden this past summer for the first time. I’m in the middle of finishing the fifth book in the Millennium series, and it’s nice to have that experience in mind when Mikael Blomkvist is dashing off to Uppsala for something. BTW, the name on the door of the place next to mine in Uppsala that one night said “M. Blomkvist & Erika”. I did a double take.

Happy birthday, Tom Angelripper!

Tom Angelripper of Sodom @ 2019 Brutal Assault


The first time I saw Sodom (at Copenhell at about 2 in the morning) I couldn’t really “see” Sodom. They were in mist and strobe lights much of the time. The second time, this past August in Czech, couldn’t have been more different. In the sunshine they gave off a totally different vibe even if the songs were mostly the same.

Waterfall Wednesday


No Iceland for me this summer. I’m hoping to book my flights to Denmark in the next month. Side trips will likely include Slovenia, Poland, Czech Republic (again), and either Germany or the Netherlands.

BTW, I had this spot, on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, all to myself for the half hour or so I was there. If this waterfall was anywhere else in the world I’m guessing there would have been at least a hundred people there. The crowd, or lack thereof, makes a huge difference in the experience.

I was fortunate to see Sodom each of the past two summers. It would be a shame if that streak ended in 2020.
