Retro fan art

Check out this cool fan art that our Russian fan "Dinya from Petrograd" made for us! Maybe this is what our Eurotix single "I Plead Insanity" would've looked like if it had been released on 7" vinyl and cassette back in the eighties? We love retro!

Review: Cold Prey (2006)

"Fritt Vilt", or "Cold Prey" as it was called in English, is a Norwegian horror movie from 2006, directed by Roar Uthaug.

Five young friends are on a snowboarding trip in the Norwegian mountains. But when one of them is injured, they're forced to take shelter in a seemingly abandoned ski hotel. They soon discover that someone has been living in the hotel since it was closed down in the seventies, killing anyone who trespasses.

"Fritt Vilt" is one of the best horror movies made in recent years. Sure, it's not very original, but the entertainment value is high. And for me, living in Sweden, it's a plus that the movie is set in our neighbouring country, because it hits closer to home, making the movie more frightening. Sweden has a lot to learn from Norway when it comes to making horror movies.

The acting is quite good for a slasher. Ingrid Bolsø Berdal is perfect as the leading lady Jannicke. In recent years, she's acted in international movies such as "Chernobyl Diaries" and "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters". Is a new "scream queen" in the making?

The cute Endre Martin Midtstigen as Mikal brings the eye candy to the movie, but the most sympathic character is the "clown" of the gang, Morten Tobias, played by Rolf Kristian Larsen. You keep hoping that he'll be one of the survivors.

"Fritt Vilt" is by no means a groundbreaking horror movie, but it's well-acted, professionally made and can definitely give Hollywood horror a run for its money. So if you enjoy a good teen slasher, give this one a try!

I own the Scandinavian Blu-ray edition, which has the best sound and picture quality available. You can buy "Fritt Vilt" on DVD from Amazon UK and Amazon US.



Please check out my other reviews.

Video: Britney Spears - Perfume

Pop princess Britney Spears has premiered the video for her brand new single "Perfume". The first time I heard the song, I felt it was a bit too slow to be a single. But it's a grower and the more I listen to it, the more I like it. What do you think?

"Perfume" is the second single taken from Britney's latest album "Britney Jean".

Tom Daley comes out as bisexual

British diver Tom Daley came out of the closet today, in a YouTube video where he reveals he's fallen for another guy. He's very brave! I think it's great that celebrities come out because it shows other LGBT people that they're not alone, and that they don't have to hide who they are.

Video: Ricky Martin - Come With Me

I've never been a Ricky Martin fan. Sure, he's a great singer and dancer, and looks great, but I've never been into latino pop. However, I love his latest single "Come With Me", an amazing mixture of dance-pop and house music! I'd definately buy a full Ricky Martin album with that sound. Keep doing electronic music, Ricky!

"Come With Me" is out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US. There is also a special remix EP by 7th Heaven.

Kids React To Gay Marriage

You have to check out this heartwarming video where kids react to gay marriage. I think the world would be a much better place if grown-ups were as open-minded as children.

"Justin Bieber married a guy!"

Kylie Minogue - Skirt (Remixes)

My idol Kylie Minogue released her single "Skirt" earlier this year. The cool dance track is a buzz single from her upcoming album and I absolutely love it! It's only available to buy from Beatport.

The good thing about buying the song from them is that music nerds like me can get it in WAV format, for the best possible sound quality. I'm looking forward to Kylie's upcoming album and I hope it will be in the same electronic style as "Skirt"!

Video: Geri Halliwell - Half Of Me

I'm a big Spice Girls fan and I also love Geri Halliwell's solo music. The other day, Geri finally released her brand new single "Half Of Me" and you can see the video down below. It's a cute pop track that I'd love to buy. However, it's only available in Australia, which is a real shame.

Record labels should by now that they need to make songs available worldwide right away, or people will just download the track illegally. I like the song though and I really hope Geri's releasing a new solo album in the near future!

Video: Le Kid - Physical

Swedish pop group Le Kid competed in Melodifestivalen 2011, the Swedish pre-selection to the Eurovision Song Contest, with the song "Oh My God", which I found a bit disappointing.

Video: Paris Hilton - Good Time

I'm one of few who actually enjoyed Paris Hilton's 2006 pop album. Sure, she's not a great singer and her voice is probably all Auto-Tune. But what can I say? I love trashy dance-pop music as long as the sound is good! And Paris just released the brand new single "Good Time", a wonderfully plastic dance track, featuring Lil Wayne. Check out the video down below.

I hope Paris will release a whole dance album! Meanwhile, "Good Time" is available on iTunes and Spotify.

Silent Hill 2 Soundtrack

This arrived yesterday, straight from Japan. It's the beautiful and scary soundtrack for the "Silent Hill 2" video game, by Akira Yamaoka. I fell in love with the music when I first saw the 2006 movie. My personal favourites are "Promise (Reprise)", "Magdalene", "Laura Plays The Piano", "Theme Of Laura (Reprise)" and "White Noiz".

This amazing soundtrack is available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Glen Vella - Lie

Do you remember pop singer Glen Vella? He represented Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 with the song "One Life". But I want to recommend his 2012 single "Lie". This modern dance-pop track is a lot better than "One Life" in my opinion, and would have done better in the contest. I'm looking forward to more tracks like this from Mr. Vella.

"Lie" is available to buy on iTunes.

Video: Little Boots - Shake

I'm a big fan of British pop singer Little Boots and her electronic music. Check out the brand new video for her single "Shake". The track is taken from the album "Nocturnes", out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US.

Deleting Facebook friends

I use Facebook for staying in touch with friends and family, but also for networking and chatting with people who share my interest in music, movies etc. However, having too many "friends" started stressing me out, so now I'm unfriending people I don't know well, or people I don't speak to very often. I used to feel bad when turning friends requests down, but have realised that I need to do so for personal reasons.

I don't want to sound ungrateful or snobbish. It's nothing personal, I just need to focus on my closest friends and family. So if you've been unfriended, it doesn't mean I'm angry with you or that I don't appreciate writing with you every now and then. As you know, Facebook and other social networks are updated in real time, so too many "friends" makes it harder to keep up with your loved ones.

Only some of the posts on my personal Facebook profile are public, because I want to keep my privacy. But you're welcome to subscribe to my profile or like my pages Bimbo Boy, Plastic Retro or Dennis Alexis Hellström to stay updated. I'm also on Twitter, Google Plus, Tumblr and Instagram.

I don't mind getting to know new people and having online friends, but I can't accept requests from all the people I sporadically chat with. If I did, I would drown. If people choose to take it personally, that's their prerogative, and I'm sorry about that, but I have to do what's best for me.

Thank you for understanding!

Samantha Jade - Firestarter

I love Samantha Jade's single "What You've Done To Me" from 2012 and now she's back with an even better single called "Firestarter". This electropop/dance track is amazing and I can't wait for Samantha's upcoming album!

"Firestarter" is out now on iTunes and Spotify.
