March 8

I've started a community!

Paralympics has started in Salt Lake City. At least in Sweden, the 2 - 3 weeks before the Olympics started, there were almost nothing but the Olympics in the media.. Now, when Paralympics, you really have to look hard, to find anything about it.. It's almost as if it weren't.. Sad!

Today, obviously, is the International Women's Day. Now, one could always discuss. So.. this is THE day.. the women's day.. what about the other 364 days.. Men's days?? It's really, really sad, that something so natural, needs a certain day when things are focused on them.
I'm totally against gender-focusing. We're all humans. Just a different gender. Doesn't mean we're "different humans". At least we shouldn't see it that way. Yes.. women and men has some different needs, but those needs should be taken for granted!

Astrid Lindgren is buried today. A great humanist. There's too few of them, really...

Totally impressive..

Just great!!

The cortège carrying Astrid Lindgren's coffin through Stockholm, was planned to take 45 mins.. Wow... riding full speed etc.. they were able to make it on 17 ..

Hmm.. Did they thought they'd not get paid if the body was cold when they arrived, or..

The wagon with the coffin were supposed to be followed by a girl leading a un-saddled white horse.. She had to run, to keep up...

Of course.. the thousands of people along the road, could just watch it go by full speed, or run along with it to throw a flower or say anything etc..

The Virgin Suicides

wow.. they're showing "The Virgin Suicides" on one of the movie-channels.. (Canal+)..

Saw that in the cinema in London.. Slightly uneven, a touch too "New York" hip.. but really interesting film, and close to a must see..

If not, because James Wood and Kathleen Turner as the parents is so great.. among the best acting performances I've seen..
