Time to sum up the year 2015.
It’s been one amazing musical year and let’s be honest, far too many good releases, the pile of records have grown alot!
Sharing most of them has been a really fun.
Regarding the growth of the record collection have this year been monitored, I have started to use Discogs
an excellent product to keep track of all the records. As during the years I lost the control of what I have, haha I guess that I starting to get senil :).
So from time to time I buy the same record that I already have, kind annoying. So Discogs is my best friend atm :) But so far I only have added the records that have been purchased under 2015, can announce that at first sight I started sweating heavily when I saw the number of all the records. It's more than last year, oops! Well all the records aren't brand new, many of them have been found on second hand shops etc if that's a relief :) Yeah for me it is. Think what a bunch of cash I would have if no records was bought, think what I could do with it. Wishful thinking indeed, but then, what a boring life it would be, no new music, no new records that I could sink into and feel that I'm alive.
2015 have been pretty good and not so messy on the personal level, the creativity have raised but not as much as planned, things in life have started to get in place. Work wise it have been as busy as always but the focus have been on other things that on single events. Some new employers has appeared and that I'm thankful for.
Did a fast look thru the Calender for 2015 and after a few pages I Lost the count of the gigs, haha. Anyway here is a picture to show a few of them.
2015 have been the festival year! I think if I count on top of my head I have visit +20 festivals all around Europe this year, fun oh yes. I won't list every single one and won't mention any artists this time, I guess the picture well say it all this time. (Ask if you have any questions in the comments.)
2016 looks like it could be an awesome year, the requests starting to come in already.
