Swedes do it better.

For such a teeny tiny population (about 9.2 million according to the Oracle), Sweden sure manages to churn a disproportionate number of genius musicians out into the world: ABBA, Roxette, Miike Snow, The Perishers, The Hives, Europe, International Noise Conspiracy, and, of course, Ace of freakin' Base. Maybe it's the universal health care? HAHAHAHA! Just kidding, friends who oppose our country's recent healthcare developments! Please, don't stop loving me....

Do watch this, though.


Amazing, right? What's Naruto? Who cares?! Do you hear this guy's voice? He's combined the two loves of my life in a really long, but really cool youtube video.

In a related story, I spent too much money at IKEA yesterday. That place is as awesome as Disneyland, if not more so. It's organizational products make it so our tiny hobbit hole feels less like a doll house and more like a real live place to live. Also, I got to overhear at least 3 couples fighting. Why do couples always fight when they're shopping for furniture? IKEA: where relationships go to die. I guess that's Sweden's flaw. Tearing American couples apart. You have to admit, it's a small price to pay for 7-minute TV theme song medleys and expedit shelves.

oh, and isn't it nice to be the female lusting after the male version of "hot swedish twins?" Yowzer...they make me feel like a school girl again. lol. Although I will say that their performance, as swedish as it was, had to have been inspired by this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7xD59eAnUc
and you know the only thing that would make the swedes look any better would be if I came can-caning across the backdrop with my post-pregnancy gut...

@hil post-pregnancy gut. ha! how about my PRE-pregnancy gut!? anyway, yes a can-can would be infinitely better. fun fact: NOT twins! One dude. Split screen.

that was extremely amusing.

coincidentally, on a random shopping trip today we bought a package of made-in-sweden cupcake liners that are all-natural and miraculously don't require a cupcake pan. so efficient. what will those swedes come up with next?
