Round up and donate (danish 2010 Future Lions finalists)

Friday, July 9th, 2010

This is a very good idea from the danish (and Russian) 2010 Future Lions finalists. Extremely simple. Donate the 5 cents round up to a whole amount…from $9.95 to $10.00 to a worthy cause. Many small amounts become something substantial. Easy and very executable. Do it people. Good work to the team Vera karpova (CW) & Thomas Ilum (AD).

Roskilde Festival 2010

Monday, July 5th, 2010

So it’s all over now and all that is left is echoes of the music in the form of static hiss in the ears. Great festival. Not the best program, but very good concerts from Alice In Chains, Them Crooked Vultures (perhaps the best of the festival), Möterhead, Kasabian, Beachhouse, LCD Soundsystem (from a-very-far – now that’s a lot of people in a small tent) and Kissaway Trail (Our very own X Sessioneers). Much to my regret, I missed Robyn, Die Antwoord and Dirty Projectors, because of conflicting concerts. National were excellent. Pavement were decent. Titus Andronicus was a bit of a dissapointment… Prince was ridiculous – he actually wore a jumpsuit – Elvis style and with a picture of Elvis on it. No song played in at under 15 minutes, with at least 4 solo’s, gospel choir call and response… in every fucking song. But that boy can play – gotta give him that.

I kind of missed more digital stuff this year – maybe a bit of programming and maybe I was just in a rocky mood. I also missed a big metal name. Meshuggah and The Kandidate were OK.

See ya next year.
