BORED AGAIN

Still not much happening in my life. Does anyone have a more interesting life for sale?
Anyway, in lack of better things to do I redid my Natalie Portman page. AGAIN. I know, I know, it’s the third time but this time it’s better and nicer. I think so anyway.
Well, guess it’s back to Primo Levi again… (depressing but still interesting!)

PRIMO LEVI

I’ve started reading a book by Primo Levi (1919 -> 1987) called “Survival in Auschwitz”. And everyone who knows me are probably saying “Kris? READING A BOOK!?”. I’ve only read two books (other than computer literature) in my entire life, so you better believe me when I say it’s a book worth reading!
(and for those of you who are wondering, the other two books are “The Neverending Story” (by Michael Ende) and “The Fourth K” (by Mario Puzo)
I’ve also expanded my “member of” list to include Greenpeace. Do I even need to explain why ?
On a personal note – there was a “9th grade graduation 10th annivarsary reunion” in Nynäshamn last weekend. I had, by choice, forgotten all about it so I didn’t bother to show up. To everyone who missed me – sorry! But let’s face it, if anyone puts me in the same room as some of the people who helped making my early teens the living hell it was – they are asking for trouble.

NataliePortman.com

Over at NataliePortman.Com we were discussing a song that used some samples from my favorite flic, “Leon”. And now I’ve finally got the MP3 of Eric Serra’s “Hey Little Angel“! My favorite actress in a song from one of my favorite musicians on the soundtrack to my favorite movie. How can I not LOVE IT?!

NOT MUCH HAPPENING

Ok, so what’s happened since I last updated this page… not much. As usual! The free Guestbook that have worked so well isn’t working at all anymore, so I had to go over to a new free guestbook service. Feel free to sign in!
My favorite Formula-1 driver, M. Schumacher, won the World Championship and I won 1.000 SEK since I knew he would 🙂 Also updated my “Who am I?” page to make me look better. And it’s not for show, I actually am a member of the Red Cross and Amnesty. Hope to expand that pretty soon but hey, I wanna enjoy my hard-earned money myself a little too!

BORED

I don’t know if I’m that booring, but not much has happened in my life. The most exciting thing that’s happened in recent days was when me and my sister, AC, went out in Stockholm for a movie (“Hollow Man”, I’ll give it a 4) and then to O’Learys sportsbar to see the Indianapolis Formula 1 race live. Quite an experience, it really beats sitting home alone watching F1. The mood was great, the food was great, the service was good, the race was excellent and the crowd was superb (and mostly Ferrari :)).

On a personal note, I’m now officially a staff-member of NataliePortman.com . Yeah baby! I’m in charge of the image gallery. Sounds easy right? You trying indexing, categorizing etc. over 2000 images.

PARTYING

Not much happening here. I was out partying with Henrik, Janne and Jocke again last satuday and ended up trying to get from one twilight zone (aka Brandbergen) to another (aka Lyngsta) at 6 am with a bit too much to drink. I finally got home at about 8.30 and soaking wet, but man did we have fun! The project to upgrade everything here to Flash is scrapped untill I get my hands on the new Flash 5, but I’ll update bio and “about me” section.

NO UPDATES

I just realised I hadn’t updated this for a while, so I thought I’d just leave a note here saying that I’m still alive and kicking! I’m also doing a Flash version of my domain. Most of it anyway, not the Star Trek pages since they are too big. But I’m working on it!

NATALIE AGAIN

The old Natalie Portman dedication wasn’t good enough. So I did a new one 🙂 This time the entire homepage is included in the Flash animation with a menu, and of course a song. This time it’s one of the most beautiful songs ever – “Det Vackraste” by Cecilia Vennersten. It’s in swedish but the music and her voice tells the story, not the lyrics. Anyway, check it out here.

THE CRUISE

I finally got a hold of the pics from our Finn-cruise. Unfortunately, due to a mishap the reel for the first day was unusable 🙁 And that was the day when most of the funny things happened (like me+Åsa spontaneous version of “Living Next Door to Alice”). Anyway, you’ll have to make do with the photos from “the day after”. Check my bio for the pics.

X-MEN

The reason I haven’t been writing anything here for a couple of weeks is because I had a very, VERY needed vacation. I didn’t really do anything special during the vacation. Except helped out for the sci-fi congress in Stockholm. It turned out better than we thought, we got a preview of the new movie X-Men ! And this was on 7th July, before the US premiere and considering this is in Sweden it’s quite a feat!

The movie was very well-made. And I’ve never really read any X-Men comics or anything so I had a little trouble with all the characters. But Anna Paquin has really grown into a babe!

UPDATES

Another very booring day at work… so I updated my biography page with more info about my family. Other than that, I’m still contemplating the fact that I’m not in Australia…

ME ON THE RADIO

Today I finally MP3 coded the radiointerview with me and Godzilla. It’s about 10 MB big, but man was it fun making it! Check out my bio to read about this interview. Credits go to my sister who taped it.

EGO

I’ve gotten some complaints that I don’t have any stuff or any interesting things on this site. Well I’m sorry, but this is “my very own domain”, and mostly it contains info about me and some very few special others, so you can complain all you want, but this is my place.

So what’s new in my life? Not much I’m afraid, trying to keep everything rolling at work. Other than that, Sweden was knocked out of the European Championship in soccer. Surprise? Not very… But on the upside, Schumacher won the Canadian Formula-1 GP 🙂

BUSY

Sorry I havn’t written anything here in a while, but this time it’s because I’ve been too busy. A week ago I got the honorable mission of redoing the natalieportman.com websites imagegallery. About 1500 pics, categorized and all with thumbnails and texts and everything, took a loooong time but now it’s done and I’ve done my part for peace on Earth. You think?

STILL ABOUT NATALIE

I got a couple of “sure you know Nat’s real name” letters. But now I can prove it. If you do a Yahoo search on her real name, “My Dedication to Natalie Portman” is the first page that will come up. During the very, very booring weekend I had I finished a Flash-anim dedication to Natalie. You can find that here. As I said, this weekend was very booring, but it was a long time ago that I had a weekend without any plans whatsoever (except the Monaco GP).

25!

Yeah, I’m finally 25 years old, or as my brother-in-law called me, “quarter of a century”.  And this was a super slow day at work, let me tell you! Thank god for MP3 🙂

I’ve started a small flash dedication to Natalie. Mostly I needed to learn the program, but I hope you’ll like it. And speaking of Portman, the extended version of “Léon” is coming out on Region 1 DVD in august. YEAH!

NATALIE PORTMAN

Sorry I haven’t written anything here, but you see…. nothings been happening in my life. I’VE GOT NO LIFE! Damn!

Anyways, tonight we’re gonna party! We’re going on Silja Festival boat to Åland for a 24 hour cruise and I’m probably gonna be sorry tomorrow morning. And another victory for the great Internet – a guy at work challenged me to find a bit of information on the net, specifically Natalies last name. Kris + Internet 1 point, and $50 bucks richer!

I know there’s a big “invasion of privacy” issue involved in that undertaking, but to my defense I only used public databases, and also I’m a firm believer in “informations wants freedom”. and the info stays with me! So no, don’t ask for it. If I can do it so could you if you really care that much.

REDUX

I wasn’t at all happy with the Natalie-page I put up so I did a more extensive one located here. Enjoy !

STILL BORED

After another very booring day at work I decided to make a nice little tribute to, what I consider to be, one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen, Natalie Portman (most famous for playing the Queen in SW Episode I, although I still think “Leon” is her best movie yet. Then again, I haven’t seen her latest, “Where the Heart Is”).
And when I say “beautiful”, I not only mean that she’s great looking, but almost everything I read or see about her is just… beautiful ! Don’t know why I did it, I mean, she’s never gonna see it and there are 100s of Natalie sites around, but it just felt like a nice thing to do.

BORED

Had a totally boring day at work, so I updated the menu and fixed the CSS. That’s how boring this is.
If it wasn’t for “Städdagen” wednesdays are way too BORING !
