PODCASTS JUST NU.

manhattan / sunday.

hej hörrni. jag nämnde ju i ett inlägg härom dagen att jag lyssnar en del på poddar just nu, och det var några av er som gärna ville höra mer om det. och er önskan är min lag, så här kommer ett samlat inlägg om poddarna jag lyssnar på just nu.

har delat upp det i poddar jag prenumererar på (eller lyssnar på alla avsnitt av) och poddar jag lyssnar på sporadiskt, samt engelska och svenska poddar. here we go:

poddar jag prenumererar på/lyssnar på alla avsnitt:

svenska poddar:

penntricket. cissi wallins och lady dahmers podd om feminism och generellt hur det är att leva som kvinna i patriarkatet. så sjukt många OMG I KNOW RIGHT-moments i denna podd. så sjukt bra. tyvärr ska dom sluta nu efter avsnitt 20. deppigt.

språket i p1. språkpodden som på ett vardagligt och populärvetenskapligt sätt tar upp olika språkfrågor. vet inte om alla ni vet detta, men jag är språknörden #1? har en kandidat i språk, har pluggat lingvistik, grammatik, och retorik (utöver copywriting då) och pratar sju språk. dessutom har båda mina föräldrar jobbat med översättning och språk på olika sätt. ok sorry sidospårs-humble brag.

nya låten. fina pontus de wolfes podd där han intervjuar låtaktuella artister om deras nya låt. fint ändå att plocka isär låtar som flera gånger jag totalt ogillat i början, men som växer på mig direkt när artisterna får djupdyka och berätta om dem.

arga flickor. en podd som tyvärr är död nu, men de har ett fett arkiv att lyssna igenom iallafall. av grymma nora och wendy som pratar om saker de är arga över, ofta om intersektionalitet och rasism, och ofta med sjukt kickassiga gäster. älskar dem.

rättegångspodden. vi får följa med och lyssna på utdrag ur rättssalar med mördare och vittnen på svenska mordutredningar. ändå sjukt spännande om man är lagt åt det hållet.

polenpodden. kanske irrelevant för de flesta av er, men SÅ mysigt för mig (som är halvpolack och uppvuxen fett marinerad i polsk kultur) med en podd om polen på svenska. får akut saknad varje avsnitt. (tack för tips från min fellow bloggarpolack annelie!)

 

engelska poddar:

terrible, thanks for asking. allvarlig och sorglig podd (med skratt och skämt strösslat här och var, såklart) där varje avsnitt avhandlar olika sorters förluster. man skrattar och gråter garanterat typ 3 ggr per avsnitt.

call your girlfriend. en av mina favvopoddar som jag lyssnat på prick varje avsnitt av. amina och ann pratar om amerikansk politik, intersektionalitet, mens, och kardashians. typ. de är så skarpa, hilarious och oursäktande samtidigt.

noise pop 20th street block party.

poddar jag lyssnar på då och då:

svenska poddar:

söndagarna med stina wollter. allas vår älskade stina har ju sitt radioprogram där hon möter människor från alla möjliga hörn med massa olika historier i bagaget som de tillsammans försiktigt nystar i. lugnt och andäktigt.

värvet. den kändaste kanske, men en jävligt bra podd ju. älskar kristoffer triumf och hans lugna tysta sätt. lyssnar på avsnitten med personer man vill lära känna mer.

tankar med… daniel redgert är den totala motsatsen till kristoffer triumfs sätt att intervjua på. ettrig, tjatig och pushig, men på ett roligt sätt. älskar när han pratar med typ magdalena ribbing eller nån annan gammal som är från en helt annan planet typ.

sommar i p1. ÅH vem älskar inte sommarprat ju. i år har jag lyssnat på cherrie abdulle, william spetz, linnea claeson, jerzy sarnecki och bahar pars. (williams, linneas och jerzys berörde mig nog mest).

 

engelska poddar:

you are not so smart. en amerikansk populärvetenskaplig podd om logic fallacies och behavioral economics, och andra sätt som vår hjärna kan lura oss på, eller hur vi lurar oss själva. mkt intressant.

the tim ferriss show. tim ferriss är typ känd för att bli bäst på allt han gör (typ). han intervjuar olika människor som är bäst på det de gör och pratar om vad som driver dem och hur man själv kan applicera olika grejer på sitt eget liv.

oakland adventures.

PUH. det var det. har ni några åsikter?! tips?! vad har jag missat?! PUZZ.

 

podcasts i listen to right now!

weekend on another coast.

happy sunday from the east coast!

i’m in my other beloved home-that-has-my-heart city new york from yesterday morning (writing this while still in sf but supposed to have landed 05.37 yesterday!) until tuesday evening.

planning on museum hangouts, coney island adventures, coffee catchups, lovely eats, sparkling drinks, hugs, and rooftop parties. and of course crazy new york summer humidity on top of it all.

hope your weekends are fantastic. if not, here are three awesome things to make it better:

visually satisfying color palettes from iconic film scenes.

visual designery photography film porn like this is like the best?? it feels very satisfying in a way.

arabic words illustrated based on their literal meaning.

this too! very beautiful and visually satisfying. also arabic. a damn beautiful language, spoken and written.

woodpecker hitches a ride through chicago.

literally one of my favorite youtube videos this year. IT’S SO CUTE!!!!

 

hej hallå! jag är i new york denna helg fram tills tisdag kväll. sysselsätter mig med musemhäng, äventyr på coney island, fika, mat, skålande, återseendekramar och takfester. som man sig bör i nevvan.

hoppas er helg e fin som tusan den med, om inte har ni här tre grejer som kanske lyfter dagen lite. en fin länk med färgpaletter baserade på kända filmscener, en länk med arabiska ord illustrerade baserade på deras mening, och så VÄRLDENS GULLIGASTE lilla hackspett. det var allt!

tattoos, fur, and fries.

it was sort of a while ago i gave you some instagram tips. i love exploring new accounts every day, and here are 5 great ones:

@sashadidntwakeup

i discovered sasha when i saw him modeling for marche noir. tattooed model with that sad boy face a la ryan gosling in place beyond the pines.
@theirregularlens

just a shit ton of colorful foodporn. some days that’s all you need, right?
@hspdiary

someone from my old school, berghs, made this as their final project as berghs — an animated diary of how it is to be a highly sensitive person. cute, but still deep.
@graceneutral

hardcore, kickass, mystical and beautiful. that’s basically the feed of grace neutral, who is a london-based tattoo artist. dying for her aesthetic tbh
@this_girl_is_a_squirrel

and of course there needs to be a pet account in this post too. follow the adventures of the domesticated squirrel, jill! vvvvv cute.

 

fem instatips ni borde följa bums.

me and my talented friends.

heya! here’s a little bit of everything today:

Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 5.17.24 PM

the swedish organization svenska digitala nomader made an interview with me. check it out here! it’s in swedish, but you can probably google translate it if you’re interested in knowing a little bit about me, my job, and some of the places i’ve lived and worked in.

i got a comment that i should review the glossier boy brow pomade that i wrote about in this post. i don’t have much to say than praising it! it makes my brows look a little denser and more groomed, without looking over-done. ↑ here’s a little boomerang how it looks on (cause i naturally have kind of weak eyebrows).

Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 5.23.09 PM

remember my super lovely friends jens and axel (to the left in this picture)? they’re both designers and have recently come up with this ruler, especially designed for designers and creators who work both in the physical and digital world. their kickstarter is still running for a few more days, but they’ve already reached over 500% funding! so proud. check out the project here.

680

the fantastic stina (who visited sf and hung out with me last year is in this year’s let’s dance (sweden’s version of dancing with the stars)!!! and she’s KILLING it. if you’re in sweden, you probably know it’s every friday on tv4. if you’re outside of sweden, maybe you can somehow try to access it on tv4play (not giving any advice to break the law here though). otherwise, just check out and follow her majestic instagram account.

Superskaparna-1920x1277

and another one of my friends who’s in a swedish tv show right now is anna maría (to the right in the yellow shirt)! she’s one of the three finalists in the DIY competition show superskaparna. much proud!! watch it on sjuan every tuesday or on tv4play. go anna maría!

 

mao

lite gott och blandat om mig och några av mina duktiga kompisar! en intervju med mig, jag i glossiers ögonbrynspomada, jens och axels linjal-kickstarter, stina i let’s dance och anna maría i superskaparna! asså så många bra folk i samma inlägg va.

cutouts, cats, courts and croissants.

happy tuesday! today, i have four fantastic, conceptual instagram tips for you!

@gakugakugakugakugaku1.

gak

this japanese artist does insanely mesmerizing pattern cutouts in fruits and vegetables. isn’t it amazing?

 

@alexandmerle.

alex

take a look at these pics! they are of alex and merle, two cats whose mouths, noses and paws we get a feed full of zoomed-in pictures of. cute?!

 

@hypecourts.

hype

one of my absolute favorite accounts right now. i love how these drone shots make these seemingly abandoned courts seem so secret and mysterious, but also beautiful. makes me want to travel to all of them.

 

@bread_masters_.

bread

this account gathers pictures of bread masterpieces from all around the world. i’m such a non-baker really, but these are really pretty to look at. also, who doesn’t love carbs??

do you have any fantastic accounts i need to follow? let me know in the comments!

fyra konceptuella instagrams jag gllar just nu! langa era tips med vettja!

observations for women’s day.

27f945d46cd1e40198a4f94611428b48

i didn’t post anything on women’s day here on the blog on the day itself, but i have some thoughts and reflections on it now, a few days after, on what was going on that day, and what we can do the other 364 days of the year to be feminist and inclusive.

maybe someone reading this post will feel attacked and/or uncomfortable, but please, hear me out—it’s so important for an inclusive and intersectional feminism.

✊ the protests.

i applaud everyone who attended the protests and the women’s marches around the world on march 8th. i wish everyone could do so. but—remember that the ones who couldn’t attend aren’t fighting less for feminism, or are worse feminists. in fact, chances are that if you were able to take a day off without repercussions, it’s likely because of privilege. many women and feminists around the world can’t just take off without losing money, or maybe even their job.

here‘s an article about the women’s strike and privilege.

 ✊ wearing red.

the symbolism of wearing red in solidarity this one day is lovely. just don’t forget to (especially if you’re privileged—rich, norm- and ablebodied, heterosexual, etc) fight for equality and feminism the rest of the year too. sure, wear red to show that you’re in for the good cause—but don’t forget to walk the talk too. wearing red in your all-white, upper middle class tech office (like my own workplace for example) won’t make that much difference if you can’t translate those thoughts and behaviors outside, reaching people from other intersections (race, class, sexuality, etc) too.

 ✊ terf.

terf stands for trans exclusionary radical feminists. i think this is an important matter that isn’t talked about that much. people who call themselves feminists are often supportive of other women—the kind of women that fits an idea (a person who has a vagina, for example). BUT—shocker—if your feminism isn’t inclusive of the trans community as well, it isn’t feminism. pussyhats for example—i’m sure no one had a bad intention behind them—but they’re very exclusionary for anyone in terms of gender and race—basically anyone who’s doesn’t have a *pink pussy*.

white feminism.

again—support people who are not just skinny, white, rich, cisgender, able-bodied, and privileged in other ways. i want to say this to individuals as well as organizations, magazines, blogs, tv shows, …… etc. especially, i feel that people like me (us who are a part of the extremely homogenous swedish blogging community) need to be conscious about this. as women, sure, we need to support each other, but white feminism without intersectionality is not feminism. it’s white supremacy.

also…

 

and, last but not least:

sju fina, hysteriska, badass och för roliga internetfavoriter just nu.

three apps i like.

i really like finding apps that i like and find useful. since my iphone is so important to me (and to most of you out there too, i’m guessing), helpful and fun apps are essential.

i’ve written posts before on some general apps i use here and on photography apps here, but today i’ll give you three apps i haven’t shown before.

soon.

soon

instead of writing every movie, band or restaurant you want to check out down somewhere in a note on your phone, you can put them into soon. there are lots of categories as you can see—as for me personally, i almost only use the restaurant category. there, i just type in the name of a restaurant, and it shows up in a list view together with a pin on a map. love it!

 

snug.

16830486_10154896879181093_1033521386_n

in the app snug, you can plan out your instagram grid to see how it will look before you post it to instagram! fun and helpful if you’re really into insta like me. you wouldn’t want to commit the ungodly sin of posting two pics that look terrible next to each other, right? ; )

 

urban dictionary.

ud

lol, you guys probably know this silly one already, right? urban dictionary, for all your questions regarding the latest meme expression or exotic slang. : ) heh.

 

any favorite apps of yours i should check out? bring em!

 

mao

tre appar jag gillar: soon för att skriva upp restauranger och annat på, snug för att planera instagramfeeden hur den ska se ut innan man postar, och urban dictionary om man vill förstå senaste slangen, lol. : )
hit me up med era bästa appar plz. puss

six documentaries to watch.

i really find documentaries interesting. i mean, i like watching movies in general, i just never do it (does that make sense?). and i especially find it hard after deciding i’ll watch something, and exactly then nothing comes to mind.

here are however six documentaries of varying age that i like and that you should check out if you haven’t yet.

37bccc0ba653789d8b1c60bf9dc05c8f

man on wire. this is about philippe petit who commits a crime (breaking into the roof of the world trade center twin towers) just to fulfill what he loves and dreams about—walking on a wire without any safety lines between the two buildings. so extremely fascinating.

31cd4709b8678881f5507d7fc424ba61

jesus camp. this is a documentary about a bible camp in the midwest (but could be any bible camp, probably), where small children and their way to join the “army of god” are depicted. we see extreme measures of indoctrination, speking in tongues, conducting rituals. appalling for a secular person like me, albeit very interesting.

3

searching for sugarman. a relatively recent documentary about the american musician rodriguez, whose music got super successful in south africa, without him knowing it. two cape town fans have heard rumors about him being dead, but since no one seems to know, they set out to find him. i like the tone in this one. a calm vibe, vintag-y look and good music.

54cfd7176d8e40c04e56ddcfc299e7f3

sicko. you all know michael moore. well, i saw sicko loooong time ago, when i was still pretty young and way before i came to the united states, and even back then, i remember it hitting me very hard the way the american health care system is set up. in this film, he compares it mostly to canada, and despite that you could argue about moore’s total subjectivity/angled perpectives/criticism towards the government, i still feel like it’s an important movie and subject matter to be aware of.

ab3e8ef6004d9e3f27cc300b19874ae2

jiro dreams of sushi. this is about the 85-year old jiro, who lives in japan and has a sushi restaurant at which he spends his life perfecting the art of sushi-making. the restaurant has three michelin stars and his grown sona have worked alongside him all along. it’s a very calm, lovely and heartwarming movie about the passion for sushi.

5

amy. i loved this one. amy winehouse was such a special person. i feel like she was all crazy, outgoing, acting out, but at the same time this deeply poetic heartbroken person inside. her musical ability, both when it comes to voice, lyrics and music was just fantastic. it’s so tragic to see her life in retrospect, how her career bloomed, and how it then killed her.

what are your favorite documentaries? please hit me with your best tips!

61 of the greatest signs from women’s marches around the country.

C2uDMo6UQAAyN4Z

in the past couple of days, there have been women’s marches all over the globe, as i’m sure you’ve gathered. me and siri went to the san francisco one, and it was filled with great and creative signs. i didn’t take any pics, but luckily buzzfeed made this compilation. so good.

nostalgic photos of san francisco before the gentrification.

although san francisco is the most beautiful city i know, it used to be even prettier back in the days.
