Victory for Lordi!

Congratulations to the Finnish monster rockers Lordi for winning the Eurovision Song Contest. They may not represent the best of the genre, but the melodic metal of their entry Hard Rock Hallelujah kind of grows on you. Most importantly it is a large departure from the type of music normally in the top spots of the contest. As the winner is decided by phone voting all over Europe this may be an indication that metal is rising in poularity. Or just that all metalheads voted ten times each...

Knutpunkt is over

Knutpunkt 2006 is over and it was a blast! Thank you everyone who showed up.

Due to being one of the organisers I didn't have time to attend as may seminars as I wanted, but making travel arrangements also made me meet and talk to people I might not have encounterd otherwise. All in all I think it was a good choice to be part of the crew for my first Knutpunkt.

I will post some more reflections and a picture or two later. We have also made a forum, Post Mortem, for talk about the event.

(I hope I still got some readers left after making no posts in over a month...)
