Tourism on Bleeding4Metal - Pt.6: Sweden
« Antwort #15 am: Dezember 12, 2004, 10:34:32 Nachmittag »
When I think of Sweden, I think of some weird things.

Julmust (*phatooooooey!*)
Cold, dark Stockholm winters (gets light about 9:30 in the morning, dark around 3 or 3:30 in the afternoon)
The midnight sun and northern lights, both of which I missed when living/visiting there :-/
Great punk/hardcore in the 80s
The "Gothenburg sound"
Entire public busses going silent to listen to the American girl speaking English
Unpronouncable words, including the word for the number 7 (sju)
Beautiful country
The first place I ever felt completely "at home"
IKEA
The stereotype of the Swedish sex toy industry that pervails in the US but doesn't seem to exist in Sweden
H&M (first time I experienced it was in Stockholm, too bad they've gone downhill in recent years)
Lucia day

Not cheesy at all ! The true stories are the best !
A woman following her man all across the globe ! Touching !

Hope you make it to Sweden one day to walk on your ancestor's land !

But if you ever do, write a song of that expericience and send it to Infernal Vengeance !
Sure Karl can do something with that theme !!

 :P


Hahaha!  I'm horrid at songwriting.  I just sing them, I can't write them.  :tongue:

Probably because most sex toys are from either Texas or California and US citizens don't want to admit it, so they blame the Swedes.

Exactly! They think of Sweden as being some free-sex society, with sex happening on every street corner! ;) It couldn't be that way in Texas, nuh-uh!!  :roll:

Swedish for newbies.
Say these words in a row to a Swedish dude: Buy, see, chair, ten.
If you can tell me what sentence it make in Swedish, let me know.  ;)

Sweden, ahhhh, would love to have a summer home there

We had such a nice time when we went to SwedenRock, an awesome festival, westayed in Olafstrom and drove up to Stockholm.
When I think of Sweden I think of:

Our friend MImmi, who is red haired, not as many blondes as one might think there
Blacksmiths
Noble Prize Museum, awesome place......
Lilacs, they just seemed to be everywhere, what a smell....
Extremely freindly, in a matter of fact way, people
the VASA, cool, really cool!!!
The Venice of the north, Stockholm!
Gothenberg
Some really great bands......Amon Amarth , Arch Enemy , Candlemass- (sat with them on the plane ride home, behind thier fat tour manager, ughhhhh!),  Dark Funeral ,  Dark Tranquillity , Dionysus , Dream Evil , Evergrey - (met them at PiornoRock, they were pretty cool, just haning out in the crowd watching the rest of the show), Falconer - (what can be said that already hasn't), Fatal Smile-(this ones for MetalMaiden), HammerFall, The Haunted ,Idiot-(for Metalmaiden!), In Flames, Mithotyn , Nocturnal Rites , Opeth, Persuader, Soilwork, Tad Morose, Therion, Wolf, did I forget anyone.................Ah yes some Infernal band......   :twisted:
Swedish Meatballs
IKEA/H&M, now over here as well
E4 and Cliff Burton.....RIP
Progressive Mental Health System
National Healthcare, which I know many countries have as well
Volvo and Saab
Practical thinking and very honest
Whew............

Did you ever manage to get sju out?  ;)  That was people's favorite party trick to try on me when I was there.

I wasn't ever able to manage the required perkiness for hej and tack - I guess I'd make a bad Swede!!  :whatever:

Saying "hi" and "thanks" in Swedish is supposed to be perky?  I had no idea.
