Hello my children and parents.
My oh my, me, Pelle and long time employe Joakim,
were out partying again...
On sunday afternoon I took the car and drove to
beautiful Sthlm, the place where one of the newspapers
in Sweden held their annual " Rockbjörnen" award
I got to my hotel and soon Joakim came to enjoy a beer
with me before it was time to meet up with Pelle and
enter the big gates of the party.
Me and Pelle had a mission that night, (apart from the
partying) we had been asked to give away the statue
"Rockbjörnen" to best Swedish album -05. the name of
the band who got it is Kent.
I like this award because it´s the swedish people who
decides who´s winning by voting via the internet or by
the old style way, by mail.
We won it last year for best group i think, but we were
in Mexico at the time so we couldn´t say thanks
properly. Now we did before announcing the winners so
everything feels ok now.
The party afterwords was fun. Fun to meet and talk to
pretty much every band in Sweden, we´re not at home
that much so it was nice for a change.
Anyways, hope you all will have a fantastic -06 I know
i will thanks to all of you!

Been a while. Beeeeen aaaaaaa whiiiiile.
So new year and new things to do. We stopped touring end of last year and felt a bit bruised by it I must say. Ups, downs and sideways over the world took its toll but whats not to love. You are the greatest! We had fun almost everywhere and it contained all the ridiculous antics and bright shining music that tours are supposted to contain.
Now a month into the new year we have started work on some new music. New! Music! It will probably take a while before you hear it but if you ask me things are moving along nicely so far.
Sweden is cold and a bit depressing today(hows that for a cliché) but nevertheless I feel pretty good. The Swedish grammies where yesterday. Me and Vigilante went. It wasnt all that spectacular though. We looked good though but thats about it actually.
We found an old pile of brand new white shoes at his house. You know the ones we wore in like 2000 or something. Cool shit but sweaty plastic.
Anyways, thats it for now I think. Quick poll. Who do you think should produce our next record?
HPA back in a big way, today

The Hives are back in Japan and yours truly Nick Arson has been out on the town.
People welcomed me with open arms and they all said they would pop down to wherever we chose to play.
Right now I´m very hungry and inbetween words here I cut fruit with a big knife that has been left in my honour in my room. Convenient.
Take it easy keep it sleazy!
