161204 - Second Advent.


Today is the Second Advent!

Today it's only 20 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥


The Phantom of the Opera today!


Tonight I'm going to see “The Phantom of the Opera” at Cirkus!

I'm going to see it with my friend Johanna and it starts at 7:30 pm.

I've never seen a musical live before so I'm excited that The Phantom of the Opera” will be the first musical I get to see since it's one of the most successful musicals in the world! But the biggest reason why I wanted to see it is because one of my favorite artists Peter Jöback is playing the title role as “The Phantom”.

Peter played the same role in The Phantom of the Opera in London 2012 and New York 2013 and now the third time he's playing the same role in “The Phantom of the Opera” in his/our hometown Stockholm! He will probably not be a part of this musical again and definitely not in Stockholm anyway so of course I couldn't miss the chance to see him star in the big musical that The Phantom of the Opera” is!


Tickets to Hans Zimmer Live in Stockholm!


I just booked my tickets to Hans Zimmer Live in Stockholm on May 18, 2017!

I'm going to the concert with my friend Christopher.

Everyone who loves movies and their soundtracks probably know of Hans Zimmer. If you don't know of him, he's probably made the soundtrack to at least one movie that you love.

Since he's a composer and not a singer, I had no idea that he did concerts. I just stumbled upon a Facebook post about Hans Zimmer Live a few weeks ago and immediately knew that I wanted to go. As far as I know he doesn't do concerts regularly anywhere and this is the first time he will perform in Scandinavia so I know that this will be a memorable and once-in-a-lifetime experience and I already look forward to it!

In 2017 Hans Zimmer will be performing in Scandinavia for the first time. ‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ comes to Ericsson Globe, Stockholm on May 18.

Hans, whose music can currently be heard in BBC 1’s ‘Planet Earth II’ and the Netflix phenomenon ‘The Crown’ will be joined onstage by his 15 piece studio band, along with an orchestra and choir bringing the total number of musicians on stage to over 60.

The ‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ concerts will be in two parts: the first being some of Zimmer’s classic movie scores including Gladiator, The Lion King and Pirates of the Caribbean and more and the second featuring re-imagined versions of some classic scores such as The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception with special guests from the rock and pop world.


161127 - First Advent.


Today is the First Advent!

Today it's only 27 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥


“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” Premiere!

Today is the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” premiere! ♥

I'm going to see the movie with my Brother and Dad at 17:45 (5:45 PM).

Since there will be 5 movies in the “Fantastic Beasts” series (JK Rowling is writing the scripts to all of them!) we will probably go and see all movies together, just like we did with the “Harry Potter” movies.


“Beauty and the Beast” - Trailer.


Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.


Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.

Beauty and the Beast” will be released on March 17, 2017.


Happy Halloween!

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life - Official Trailer.


Gilmore Girls” makes its much-anticipated return with four memorable chapters from the lives of Lorelai, Emily, Rory and countless more Stars Hollow stalwarts. Picking up nine years after we last dropped in on the whimsical Connecticut town, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finds each of our leading ladies at a major crossroad: Lorelai’s relationship with Luke is at an unnerving standstill; Rory’s budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it's even begun; and Emily’s world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is told through four 90-minute chapters -- each spanning one season: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall -- and brings back to life everything from the quaint corner diner to the dreamy Dragonfly Inn to a fast-talking, quick-witted mother-daughter love story unlike any other. “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” launches Friday, November 25, everywhere that Netflix is available. 


Ballet Gala - The best of Tjaikovski.


Tonight I'm going to see a ballet for the first time in my life!
 
My Mom saw an ad about this ballet in the Metro newspaper some week ago and showed it to me since she knows that I have been wanting to go and see a real ballet. So I asked my uncle if he wanted to go with me to see this ballet and he agreed and it also ended up being my belated Birthday present from him. To get to see a real Russian ballet the first time I see a ballet is definitely a good Birthday present!

This ballet is called “Balettgala - Det bästa av Tjaikovski(Ballet gala - The best of Tjaikovski) and it's a unique ballet performance that restores the Russian classical ballet tradition in the best way. This ballet only plays tonight on October 10, October 11 and October 12 at Intiman in Stockholm.

The Ballet Gala includes a cavalcade of the most complicated and in its beauty unforgettable ballet performances combined with a concert where the audience gets enchanted by Tjaikovski's magical music. The implementation is like a magical ride surrounded by an ever-conquering power of love.

The program is dynamic and changes between solos and parts with a large number of dancers on scene simultaneously. A variety of magnificent costumes and scenography contribute to unforgettable experiences.

The artists honor the Bolshoi Theatre ballet traditions and carry the show entirely according to the original productions and the great Petipa's choreography, which will not leave anyone unaffected in the auditorium.

The Moscow Ballet consists of young highly creative and talented dancers with strong personalities. They have won several prestigious international competitions and has had success in many leading theaters around the world, but primarily on the world-famous Bolshoi Theatre. They also had a highly acclaimed tour recently in Italy, Switzerland, Spain, USA, Mexico and New Zealand.

Now it is Sweden's turn to enjoy the magic and elegance of this first-class ballet with the best dance numbers from “Swan Lake”, “Nutcracker” and “Sleeping Beauty” accompanied by the great and timeless music of Peter Tjaikovski.
(I translated this from Intiman.)

As you can read above, this is a real Russian ballet with music from Peter Tjaikovski so it sounds very promising! I hope that it will live up to my expectations and that I will like it, but no matter what it will be very interesting to get to see a ballet for the first time in my life and it will be something that I can say that I've actually seen and experienced.

I visited Helsinki when I was there on a Silja Line cruise and I had no idea that there would be a demonstration in the city until we heard them and later walked right into it. Good job, Helsinki! ♥

Prison Break - Official Trailer.


PRISON BREAK is back and ready for its biggest escape yet.

In the thrilling new event series PRISON BREAK, original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired on FOX from 2005-2009.

The original action drama centered on MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Miller, “The Loft”), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Purcell, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison.

In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and SARA (Sarah Wayne Callies, “Colony,” “The Walking Dead”), Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Nolasco, “Telenovela”), T-BAG (Knepper, “Heroes”) and C-NOTE (Dunbar, “The Mentalist”), are pulled back into the action.

Prison Break” was an immediate critical and ratings hit when it premiered on FOX in the fall of 2005, garnering Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Miller). The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will return to executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer.”

PRISON BREAK will be back in 2017!


Pipsticks Pro Club Classic Sticker Subscription - April 2016.


This was the PipsticksPro Club Classicsticker subscription box for April 2016

I’ve gotten a few random month boxes of Pipsticks earlier and I got this month’s box since I found a discount for a 1-month Pipsticks subscription but I honestly didn’t like this month’s box that much and I had to cancel my subscription.

If you like all kinds of stickers you might want to subscribe to the Pipsticks sticker subscription since that’s exactly what you will get. 
Personally I prefer stickers with specific themes or for specific things and of course planner stickers, unfortunately I feel like Pipsticks doesn’t really work for those purposes.
