Things That Have Made An Impact On Me.
It is amazing how much there is to stimulate an imaginative mind.
Below I've listed some of the things that really set my creativity running wild.
I can't stop to admire the great works of some artists. I really hope you'll find them enjoyable too.
The right music can really be overwhelming and inwoke feelings and moods in you.
These are some of the artists that manages that with me.
- Bo Kaspers Orkester - Swedish jazz and blues when it is pure day-to-day-reality.
- Kate Bush - A most beautiful voice, even though some of her songs aren't the best.
- Dead Can Dance - Got me hooked the first time I head them.
- Enigma - Sound and vocals in a most satisfying mix.
- Enya - A voice that is more that human, it's etherical and magical at the same time.
- Regina Lund - I like her voice and songwriting.
- Loreena McKennitt - Mythical, magical and a most beautiful voice.
- Morcheeba - Warm, full and sensual, with some really deep beats in it.
- Stina Nordenstam - She gives irony a whole new meaning.
- Poeta Magica - A MUST during the Mediaeval Week.
- Portishead - A glass of good whisky, a cigarette and good company at about 4:30 in the morning.
- Saltatio Mortis - This is "real" heavy metal, without the metal.
- Slowdive - Etherical and eerie, just like a good shoegazer-band should sound.
- Sting - I like his voice and songwriting.
- Wolgemut - Another MUST during the Mediaeval Week.
Books and comics have played a great part of my life.
Below are some of all those that really got stuck in my head and heart.
- Ursula Le Guin - A magical world with human people in it.
- David Eddings - I spent the years between thirteen and eighteen reading his books and Terry Pratchett's...
- J.J.R.Tolkien - A MUST to everyone that likes stories.
- Susan Cooper - One of the series that I read during the first years in school.
- Linda & Valentin - an Exellent comic that really makes your imgination leap to the stars. I think that everyone should read it, just once, to understand what i mean.
- Terry Pratchett - Read it and weep out of laughter!
- Spirou - Well, i wouldn't be half the person I am if it wasn't for Spirou.... No, to be serious, it's a really good comic, with lots of imaginative things in it.
- ElfQuest - I like the story that one follows in the comics. And the artwork.
- Arne Anka - This is how I managed the years in highschool... Apparently I was called a Krille Krokodil with the soul of Arne Anka...
- Francois Bourgeon - A really great comicmaker, I think. This site is in French.
Having a mind that put focus on details and shadowplay, I can get really caught
and almost forget everything around me while watching a movie or TV-series.
