Coldplay at Ullevi....

Ullevi Stadium, June 26

Coldplay plays nowadays in the "big show club" (those who can easily fill up a huge stadium two days on the row). They are a bigger band today....but definitely not better. The golden era after the two highlights "X & Y" and "Viva la Vida" it´s obviously difficult to surpass....or even equal. Many of the more recent songs don't even get close. A bit to much balloons, fireworks and some unnecessarily "pep talk" from Chris Martin is turning the music....into a sparkling (xyloband) show. 
I saw this band back in August 2009 at Stockholms Stadion - and that was probably one of the top three concerts I ever experienced. The concert at Ullevi Stadium yesterday was okay....but no more.

Best in show: "Something Just Like This" and of course...."Yellow"

Hateship Loveship....

Kristen Wiig 

A story told by women; Alice Munro - short story, Liza Johnson - director, and an excellent Kristen Wiig playing the main role. A film about inner strength, patience, and acceptance (definitely women we talking about).

The art of destroying a beautiful house with paint....

The summer house built in 1980 was on the outside originally painted with black color inclusive the two supporting beams (a rather important architectural detail !).

The interiors were once covered with quality pine ..floor, walls, ceiling !

Waste of money, waste of paint....and irreversible. The two white painted beams is a sacrilege.

Here a little "left-over" as a reminder of the beauty of pine
