Also known as Peanut in the famous Swedish trio PB&J, Peter Morén made us fall in love with him last night when he and fellow band members of pretty awesome Tutankamon sang;
If I'm the lucky one, are you?
If I'm the brilliant one, are you?
If you are lonely, then we're two.

(Or this is at least what we think we heard.)

Bored To Death in no longer a state of mind associated with Nordic capitals but a sparkling meeting between our two favorites Jason Schwartzman and Brooklyn in a new series from HBO.

Over a breakfast meeting we decided that Benny Andersson is the optimal guy - a bear like, cheerful sweetheart with a beard (of course) who would serenade you with music (occasionally Abba) around the clock and who just oozes kindness.

Friends of the Cobra Snake, unite.
Mark Hunter just made our job a lot easier. Originally placed in our "I wanna"-folder due to his fine 60's porn star appearance, it turns out he is The Cobra Snake. A fantastic photographer who captures the young, the beautiful and the crazy, sort of like The Sartorialist for make out-able dudes.
Because if Poseidon had been a hipster,
he would've looked like you.

Jesus loved us enough to come down from heaven to die in our place on the Cross. He told the Pharisees that the greatest commandment is, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind, and thy neighbor as thyself" (Luke 10:27). John tells us, "If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us" (1 John 4:12). We follow the steps of Jesus when we love God and our fellowmen.
Speaking of Google statistics; 10,100,000 English and Swedish pages found for Al Pacino World's Greatest Actor.

And we could not agree more with the quote from Scent Of A Woman; "The day we stop looking, Charlie, is the day we die."
Our own empirical research gave a slightly different result; 45 100 "Shouldn't" and 115 000 hits for "Should". Then again, as time goes by we expect the results to increase exponentially.

Because somewhere in Texas, there is a village missing an idiot.
A charming, sweet and festival arranging villager, and his handsome friend with impaired vision and fruity headgear.
Freshwater of adequate quality is not only a prerequisite for human societies, but also for natural ecosystems that perform functions essential for human existence and life on earth. At present irrigated agriculture is responsible for about 70% of all freshwater abstractions by humans, while agriculture as a whole applies about 86% of the worldwide freshwater use. In many parts of the world, the use of freshwater for agriculture has to compete with other uses such as urban utilization and business activities.

It is increasingly clear that lack of access to clean water and sanitation in many parts of the world causes great suffering in humanitarian, social, environmental and economic terms, and seriously undermines development goals.

This boy on the other hand, cool as a summer breeze, seems able to quench our thirst and makes our hearts beat like the A-train.

Growing up we weren't so impressed by My So Called Life, mostly because the grunge-look did not appeal to us and Claire Danes looked so pale with that unflattering artificial purple-reddish hair color. In retrospect, it is one awesome show and we fall in love for every you tube-clip we watch.

A few years ago we were walking around Coney Island and spotted a pretty guy with a leather jacket. He was so cute that we didn't really dare to look at him, but when we finally did, as he walk past, we saw that it was you, Jared, busy shooting Lord of War. Our heart took a leap and, man, those eyes are like hypnotic sapphires.

Musical genius, sophisticated elegance personified and wonderfully kind. We love you, Tamer. And because your facebook photos look more like Vogue's image bank than snapshots of everyday life.

With clothes and moves like that we don't care if you are gay. We just want you to be our dancing Brazilian all night long.

No, we don't but damn, you're photogenic.

We strongly believe that Swedish music would not be what it is today without the heartfelt beats of Mauro Scocco. With rhymes straight out of middle school romance and a video that makes us fall in love with Stockholm, Sarah captures the universal desire of hanging out at 7Eleven with your special someone.

Inga pojkar sover
Hon finns i alla rum
I luften hon andas
hennes kyss på deras mun

Hon är vild som vinden
Hon är varm som en sommarnatt
I hennes ögon glittrar
en outtömlig skatt
Det finns inget jag inte skulle göra
för att ha henne här
Jag tar emot då månen faller
Jag lovar och svär
When good looking people with bad memory somehow thinks you are related to them we just smile and say Yes, yes of course.

We had a huge crush on a guy for years until we realized that he wasn't as fantastic as we imagined him to be. Classic mistake, but a good indicator of someone's lack of humor might be if the funniest story they can tell is about a bear and a bunny.

The bear asks the rabbit if he has any trouble with poo getting stuck in the fur. The rabbit says 'No'. Then the bear takes the rabbit and wipes his ass.

Maybe it is this story that inspired the handsome Vincent Gallo to make Brown Bunny.

Per is one of our favorite photographers and another proof of the excellent combination of Swedish/American genes. His images exuberate the same lust for life and pleasure that this sweetheart from the flip side of Sweden does.

Devendra Banhart is one of those creatures who would be equally good looking a girl as a boy. Luckily for us, he is mostly man and prefers his records in the whale section instead of under D or B.

Wait a minute, we wanna be your lover.

Very good looking bands #2 - Shout Out Louds

We haven't really got the time to get into the importance of Shout Outs to our web of life. Let's just say that we once gave them Christmas presents, in the likes of an Anders Zorn puzzle for Eric and a robot for Ted, had our first back stage beers in New York, traveled across America, danced, loved and cried to the soundtrack of our lives.

And we wanna make out with you, your younger brothers, your older brothers, your friends, your fans and pretty much everyone else.
