SEMST / Linköping Bloody Kommun!


Friday was largely dedicated to spitting out the words ‘Linköping Bloody Kommun’ through gritted teeth.

A Cheddar cheese sandwich

I have appeared on a podcast.

Or more accurately, a simulacrum, an impression, a version of myself has appeared on a pod. In short, I have been impersonated on a podcast.

Last night the US of A came to Linköping in the form of Team Amerika. Even though they cheated a bit by having Englishman Ben Richards (who was hilarious), they brought a slice of America to the stage at L'Orient. …
