Holy shit, I just saw the news of the passing of Chester Bennington, singer of Linkin Park. It’s so surreal, they played in Sweden just recently and now he’s… gone.

Linkin Park was an important piece of my early teens, their angsty lyrics suited my feelings and it felt like someone was able to put my thoughts and feelings into writing when I listened to them. I know I’m not alone in having felt that way, I mean, how many haven’t screamed along to ‘Numb‘?

I used to have a big celebrity crush on Chester when I was 13, it’s hard to imagine him being gone…

He’s leaving a big hole behind, may he rest in peace.



I was so excited when Jessi‘s debut EP was announced. She’s a cool and independent lady who goes her own way. There’s a lot I respect about her and I’m happy to see her finally starting to get the cred she deserves.

UN2VERSE starts off with Gucci, which also is the title track of the EP, and it feels like a typical Jessi song. I wasn’t too impressed with the music video but I do really like the live performances of the song – although, the choreography feels odd at times, I would’ve liked to see more dynamic moves. But all that aside, look how happy Jessi is performing her song – she tries to look though but can’t help but smile all through the entire performance!

I expected the rest of the EP to be the same vibe as Gucci and was greatly surprised when each track is unique and displays different sides of Jessi. My favourite track is the slow, jazz dripping 걸음걸이 (feat. Year of the OX) that truly makes Jessi’s husky voice justice, and I would love to hear more songs like this from her! She’s a good rapper but the girl has a cool singing voice and it makes me want more music from her. I’m picky when it comes to hiphop and rap – it’s not my favourite genre, so to say – and for me to like an artist they have to offer me more than hiphop/rap. I’m not going to go more into depths about the rest of the songs, all I can say is that UN2VERSE is versatile enough for me and hopefully Jessi will release more material soon!

I’ve decided to take a few days off from anything concerning renovations. My family owns a house on the country side, and my cats have already moved out here a while ago, kind of like summer camp. So I decided to join them for a few days, and I’ve missed them so much! To me life is boring without furry friends, and considering how much my two little cat princesses bothered me last night with cuddles and kisses, I make a bold guess they’ve missed me, too.

These images are fresh, because Baloo loves to bother you when you’re sitting down and trying to focus on something. It’s much more important to play with him than to write a blog entry, right?


Btw, let’s talk about BLΛƆKPIИK‘s latest song (to make it easier for me I’ll refer to them as BLACKPINK throughout the rest of the text). It’s been out for nearly a month now, and I know it’s close to forbidden to compare them to 2NE1, but this song reminds me a lot of 2NE1. In no way is BLACKPINK the ‘new 2NE1’, but since we’re talking about the same agency (YG Entertainment) and a lot of the same song writers you’re bound to get simillarities. Especially the part at 1:20 sounds like something you’d hear on 2NE1’s first full album, and I’m loving it! This song makes me so happy on so many levels, and BLACKPINK never fails to deliver a good song and strong visuals. I’ve had this song on repeat a lot while painting the last few days, it brings up my mood by 100%!

G is for Gabi.

I'm Gabi, I live in Sweden and have a rather normal life. I have more books than I have time to read and I play video games when I really should be sleeping.

I guess that's not really a problem, though, since I happen to have insomnia so it's not like I can sleep even if I would like to.

This blog has no real direction, it's not 'lifestyle', 'fashion', 'humour' or 'political'. It's simply just... my brain.
