Apple Music

Today is the first official day of Apple Music for the public. So I’m that interested in both music and tech just had to update my iOS devices to iOS 8.4 so I could access Apple Music.

So I’m trying it out and so far have I found what I’m looking for when it comes to different artist. The design looks very good in one way and not good in another way. So far I’m not sure if I will leave Spotify for this but it’s the first day and I expect that improvement will come within the next couple of months. 

What makes me most irritated right now is the the playlists not sync between different units. But hope it will work soon. The range of available music is good. Looking forward to try it for the next three months for free as Apple let you do in order to convince you to use it.

  

Picnic in the park festival

Yesterday where Sunday and as you might know me and G visited the picnic in the park festival with artists as Marit Larsen who I really liked. A new Norwegian country band named Nothern Belle which very skilled musicians. Then we also watched artists as Modeat Mouse, James Blake and Jose Gonzales to mention a few.

But not only the music where good and interesting. Also the food where great. A lot of food trucks that we saw and tried pulled pork burgers, tacos and burritos which all tasted great.

Here are some pictures from yesterday.

   
       

Festival Sunday

There has been a festival in Oslo over the weekend but me and G haven’t been there yet. But today we will go and visit the picnic festival which not is free as it might sound and it’s a music festival even if it sounds like a food festival. 

We bough the tickets a few days ago and I’m looking forward to it. There is a lot of bands that I know of but knows some of them and I’m excited to hopefully discover some new music.

So now it’s time to get ready for a festival sunday here in Oslo.

Planning has begun

Today the planning has begun for the California road trip. The trips coming closer and that’s fast. The flight is booked since January, the hotels since a few months and the car where booked this week. So the most important things are already set but now the planning has begun at a more detailed level. It’s slowly coming together now but got a little bit of time more before it’s time.

  

Movie Review: Kingsman

A few days I got to saw Kingsman which I’ve waited for a while now. A action movie is never wrong in my opinion. Well dressed, decent acting, nice gadgets. But I don’t like Samuel L Jacksson as a corky bad guy. That’s not the kind of actor you want to see in that kind of role. Then the rest is decent but I really don’t like the Swedish princess, she doesn’t add a thing it only make me irritated that that part exists in the movie. In fact some things makes that I won’t recommend this movie even if  I would grade this movie with 6 out of 10 points.

But it provides you with some decent action so if you are getting curious and haven’t seen it. Here are the trailer.

Don’t drink and dive!

I’m very concerned about safety and water and now when the summer just have arrived and I want to remind you to take care of yourself and your friend , family and loved once.

Last year there drowned more people than over a decade in Sweden. 137 persons to be exact, that’s too many. Simple things like wearing a life jacket and to not drink before you get in the water would have saved many of these lives.

Simple things to remember. Below here is a very interesting video that shows that doesn’t matter how used you are to water, when you’re drunk some instincts and safety thinking just goes away. Take care of each other!

True Detective Season 2

Game of thrones just finished in HBO but they are not stupid so last Monday, they lunched the seasons 2 premier of True Detective. Season 1 where very successful and I liked it a lot in fact when me and G discovered the first season of True Detective we saw the entire season in less than a week. So both where very much excited Ove the season two.

G thinks it’s good after one episode while I’m a bit more reserved and think it’s at least promising. Like both Collin Farrell and Rachel McAdams since earlier and think they have potential in this serie as well. First episode where mainly about getting to know the characters and introducing them to the story and the surroundings.

Season Finale Game of Thrones

Last monday I saw the season finale of the 5th season of Game of Thrones. What a season finalle and I’ve got to say the many things where very surprising  and some made me a bit angry but many things where also left rather unfinished. So I got very mixed emotions about the episode. I would say that it have been a good season but it haven’t been the best episode in my opinion.

But I’m still lining forward to season six!

I want go get better trained…

Here a story from a few weeks ago. Me and G had decided to get out in a hike right aputside of Oslo. Just a subway ride from where we live and G had found a nice route for us to walk up on a mountain and about 9 km long. So we start walking and when we are walking up one of the hills we notice a well trained couple that are out running and say to each other, we should get fit as them. Both of thinks it’s a idea to work out more and that’s it. We walk about 6 km and meet the could’ve again and G says to me “There are the fit couple we saw earlier” the couple pass us and we walk for a few seconds before G asks me if I saw who it was. I had no idea didn’t get a good look because if where focused at hiking and enjoying the nature. She looks at me and says “That was Marit Bjørgen”. We both laught a bit about that we said we wante to get fit as the couple. For you who don’t know Marit Bjørgen is one ice the most fit persons I’ve ever seen and the dominating cross country skier for the last I would say at least five years and a top athlete and a member of the Norwegian national team in cross country skiing with Olympic gold medals and World Cup and world championship medals, most of them in gold.
