“Night of the Proms” comes to Sweden, loses Art Garfunkel

SDF re-tweet-1

For a country as music-crazy-competent as Sweden, it’s really kind of surprising that Europe’s most popular annual indoor concert series had never been booked here before. But the “Night of the Proms” finally arrived in Malmö last night and it was a BLAST despite the absence of headliner Art Garfunkel. (More on that later.) The …

A spouse by any other name

Copenhagen‘s PhD Postal Carrier worked late today and through some minor miracle, I actually managed to leave my office when I was supposed to for the first time all week. This put us both at the Penthouse Nordic at the exact same time, which hardly ever happens. So we’re talking to each other as we …

Glee’s best singer owns the National Anthem at the DNC

noimg_87_80_80

I’ve never understood why Lea Michelle is considered the vocal powerhouse of Glee, because in my opinion, Amber Riley has been singing circles around her for three seasons now.  Amber’s acapella rendition of the National Anthem at the 2012 Democratic Convention is practically perfect in every way.

That’s MY First Lady!

110357449_80_80

As Michelle Obama‘s speech during the opening night of the 2012 Democratic National Convention aired at something like 4:30am here in Sweden, I did not watch it until mid-morning today.  Wow. Just WOW. And I’m even more impressed since learning that she wrote it herself. The First Lady didn’t just knock that ball out of the …
