Congratz and memorial

TV Posted on 2009-01-25 15:28:18

First of all I want to say congratz to Elinor and the rest of the choir in team Hanna from Bollnäs for being in the final of Körslaget. You’ve done great but you’ll get a tough job to beat team Erik now, they seem to be popular. At the same time I’m thinking of Jon and his friends in the choir Team Lagaylia from Sundsvall, you did great aswell and the evening you had to leave you were the best choir of all. I’ve still not understood why you didn’t get more votes. It was supposed to be Bollnäs vs. Sundsvall in the final :<


Words by the homeless

Books Posted on 2009-01-25 00:24:12

This month I’ve read Hemlös: med egna ord (Homeless with their own words). If you think this is a book full of pity stories you are wrong. In this book the homeless people describes their daily rounds with humour, anger and love. The book is a compilation of texts published in Situation Sthlm (a magazine sold by homeless people) between 1997 and 2007. I liked to read this book and I got a new view of Stockholm, from the perspective of homeless people. It also made me consider purchasing their magazine. I see people selling them every day but I rarely have cash.
