Video Games Live is a concert on tour featuring orchestrated music from video games. I really wanna go but, I’m not sure what games they play from. I’m mostly a Nintendo gamer so it would have to include a great deal from Nintendo. But what’s awesome is that it’s finally coming to Sweden! (Actually I’m not sure if it’s the first time but I haven’t been to one yet)

Click this link to see the newly announced cities around the world.

It’ll play in Stockholm on November 7th of this year. We’ll see if I want/can go or not.

Over 250 subs and 200.000 views!

11/23/2012 2 comments

A new milestone on my Yotube channel has been reached! I now have 252 subscribers and over 200.000 video views! I’m very thankful for this. I only wish I had more interactions with my subscribers, and also that I was better at making videos. Also, if you didn’t know already, I’ve changed my Youtube name from “MurdocLC” to “Swedish Otaku”. Only problem is, the URL is still the same. (I also recently reached over 100 followers on Twitter but is back down to 98 now)

I wish I could start again

02/15/2012 Leave a comment

I have many problems. But one problem right now gives me very little time over for something like this blog. It really makes me sad to say but it’s the truth, as well as just lacking the energy to be productive on a entertainment level. 

Main problem right now is that I don’t have a job. And that has forced me to do what The Unemployment Office tells me to do. They want me to do this internship. But it’s not any internship. At this place I learn pretty much nothing and they don’t hire people, people work there for free. I’m there 8.5 hours a day (except on Fridays when we end early), I sit in front of a PC looking at scans of old books from the 1800 century and forward. These books are written by priests, they documented where people moved in and out of the region we call “Skaraborg”, today it’s a part of “Västa Götalands län”. Think of it as a state or prefecture.

And the way they wrote back then was crazy, letters can have zero resemblance to what we read today. So it’s really hard to make out names and towns. We are to look for immigrants and then register them. I find the writing and the immigration a bit interesting actually. For about an hour… It’s so damn boring!

I try to use time there looking for jobs and writing job applications, and other stuff I’m not really allowed to do. But to get back to the point. I go up 6:45, ride my bike for 30 minutes in the cold. Sit at a computer for about 8.5 hours. Go home. Feel tired and of course you wanna do SOMETHING fun or maybe you need to do SOME chores. And on top of all this I’m in need of a job more than ever. Because I’m not getting any money from any place!

I could just walk away and say I wont do it. I would of course! But there’s a catch. I have to be registered at The Unemployment Office NOW because in about 3 months when my money run out I will turn to the Social Service, and ask them for money. The last resort. I need money to stay in my apartment, I don’t wanna lose it and if I did I don’t know what I would do with my cat Akira. They have said that I now need to be doing this in order to get money when I do apply for economical support.

ACTA disgusts me

01/29/2012 Leave a comment

Due to my lack of effort and knowledge I will not go in to much detail myself detail. Just a few days ago… “22 EU members signed the controversial ACTA treaty today in Tokyo. However, the signatures of the EU member states and the EU itself will count for nothing unless the European Parliament gives its approval to ACTA in June.

And I’d just like to say that ACTA is disgusting and a real threat to the Internet and the world. Two things I hate about this is that Japan is partly the creator of ACTA (along with the US), and Sweden just signed their support for it. This could turn our social networking and online sharing to the likes of China‘s situation. One of mans greatest creations could be ruined. I’d like to inform you more about this matter with the following. Thank you.

Keep and eye on all of Japan’s earthquakes

01/11/2012 Leave a comment

Japan is the most earthquake prone country in the world. That is quite scary, even more so now after the March 11 disaster. Even so, the Japanese people are used to it, and most earthquakes are no trouble at all. Japan has earthquakes every day, but very very small ones. And if you live for example in Tokyo you can feel some shaking a few times every month.

Being from Sweden I have never experienced a such thing. We don’t really have any danger caused by nature outside of snow, wind and rain. (We don’t have tornadoes either) So I don’t know what an earthquake feels like. But when I will feel one in Japan, which I know I will, I’m sure I’ll be a bit shocked and scared. Almost anyone would be a bit frightened.

But the smaller earthquakes that happen often in Japan are nothing special to the Japanese people of course. It’s as ordinary as rain, one could say. So if you hear about anything about a earthquake in Japan then first gather information before you worry, don’t go all crazy.

The earthquake in Japan in March was on a magnitude of 8.9 and the biggest ever recorded in the country. The ones that happen every day are at a the magnitude of 1. Sometimes there are 4’s and 5’s and 6’s. When passing 4.5 or 5 they are usually note worthy and considered dangerous. Smaller than 4 are nothing to care about.

What I wanted to give you is a link to a page that quickly updates on all the earthquakes happening in Japan, just something interesting to keep an eye on.
