MCDONALD’S ON THE TUBE, TIME TRAVELLING AND SWELTERING NIGHTS

1 hackney Lucky for me I was off on the Friday when Axel was here. He came with me to the tiniest little hairdressers on Hackney Rd where a cut costs £10 and the hairdressers speak the thickest Cockney accent and the customers are artsy or drunk or family. It is real and understated and I love it. 2 axel London was sweltering hot as I walked with this babe to his old flat by Roman Rd to redo a version of this magical day back in 2011. 3 axel It was still the best flat in the best house in town. We even knocked on the door but as the prices have rocketed I doubt there are still poor, unemployed youths living there now. 4 victoria park Instead we walked down to Victoria Park which is vibrant and hot and gorgeous. We bought focaccias from a bakery and had a picnic. A man plays filmic music on his guitar and every story we tell gets super dramatic with a soundtrack. Huge lumps of time have passed since we became friends. We shared a house, took people’s virginities, dealt with a friend’s alcoholism, moved countries, broke the law together, fell out and didn’t speak, and made up again. He is damn fine that young man, and these hours on a blanket in an east london park made my heart ache of missing having him in my life. daniel Five hours and a trip to Universal Music Group in Earl’s Court we meet up with this gentleman in Soho. 6 daniel axel Time for pints! 6 axel So happy that we are such good friends once again. 5 daniel <3 8 daniel mcdonalds All of a sudden we have to rush to a fancy restaurant aka takeout mcdonald’s on the tube. Keep it classy, you know. 9 brixton academy We were in fact in a rush to Brixton Academy. I’ve made a new best friend and his name is Niclas and he works at Universal Music and gives me free tickets to gigs. This night we were lucky enough to get to go and see Lorde! 9 And boy, I was well impressed. One of the most intelligent (and crazy young) artist we have nowadays. She danced like a dragon and spoke truly to her audience about her life and fame and that all girls should just have each others back and pursue their dreams. And it makes me so ecstatic to have girls and women like her doing what they want, and not giving a fuck. I’m 22 and I sat there, feeling inspired, like things are possible. Super aware, and oh damn she sure can sing! The show gave me shivers. This and this track are on repeat at my house now. 10 kajsa royal oak11 the royal oak Late that night Daniel and I went back east to have more pints with Axel, Kajsa and Mikey. The warm summer winds swept through the pub windows, only cooling off our sizzling skin. There were only bare legs and the leather jackets were thrown on our chairs. When the pub shut, the darkness of the night swallowed us as we walked back home.   Linn

LIKE A GIRL

We all have to reflect on the way we behave and speak, because never should being a girl be an insult. Because, we are awesome.   Linn

BUDDIES AND BABES

1 canal After nannying my two dare devil kids whom I adore I swung by the canal once again.   3 axel Because this little fella was in town! You who’ve followed me since 2011 probably recognise Axel as we lived together for a year up in Clapton. 2 kajsa He was in town for the weekend so Kajsa and Thedi cooked us dinner whilst I showed them my newest musical obsession: John Wizards. 4 kajsa Outside there was red wine and swan fights, violet skies and bright eyes. Tons of catching up and gossip to do. 5 axel kajsa But mostly hugging. 6 axel We discussed old lives and lost friends and like every other youth on this planet we swore to stay best buddies always. We also discussed how much Kajsa looks like Piper (Taylor Schilling) from Orange Is the New Black. KAJSA2 I mean look at her! This chick is killing me. <3 7 kajsa Then it was time to take the party elsewhere. 9 axel To the Fox on Kingsland Rd for too expensive ales. 8 kajsa Daniel showed up slightly drunk on his skateboard after having fallen twice. 9 london As the bar closed a few hours later we walked back home in total darkness, but a friendly one you know. Because all around the damn summer smelled like hope.   Linn  

WHITE DENIM AND GREEK PUNK

1 roses On a day when London was exploding with rose bushes we strolled down towards Shoreditch and Hoxton Market. 2 dads Dad’s <3 3 daniel In quirky shops and luxurious boutiques we scavenged for the last piece of a present for one of our favourite boys. 4 It was all open windows playing music everywhere. Exactly what I miss the most in the midst of the heavy winter. 5 daniel I have no clue what it is he does but he makes me twist in laughter all the freaking time when we hang out, today no different. 6 london With wrapped gifts in our hands we headed up to London Fields. 11 daniel daniel To have ice coffees in the sun with Stenberg. 7 boys And the birthday boy Sabouné. 8 london fields With drinks in our hands we joined Olivia and Jared with their friends in the park. 9 london fields Some played American football and others read Tintin. 7 saboune And then Saboune got to open his presents (filled with glittery kitty stickers as boys need even more of them). Lots of Aesop products, a bottle opener from my favourite boutique Labour & Wait and the book What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami as Seb runs goddamn marathons! 1o daniel jared In the evening we hung out in Jared and Olivia’s empty flat in Hackney Downs, drinking Coronas before having Turkish food at a restaurant in Dalston. IMG_0112 That night we went to a Greek punk night at the Victoria on Queensbridge Road. As one does? It was so surreal and the people you see in the photo were literally the only ones there apart from us. The best thing was when the guy to the left climbed up on the wall and then tried to spit and scare the crowd which resulted in him falling down. So awkward, so good. I felt that the night had climaxed then and there so I left Daniel and Jared behind before the last two bands played and instead had ice cream in bed while watching True Blood (and I know I’m like 5 years behind but oh lord it’s good).   Linn  

BABY BIRTHDAYS AND STRIPPERS

1 ornella My absolute darling Ornella and I met up in Newington Green, filled with lattes and little boutiques for the yuppies gone parents occupying the post deprived area. We were going to a baby birthday party! 2 daria This is the hot mummy Daria who we study with. Ornella and I were slightly awkward as we were the only people without kids, but we ate cake and drank beer. As a gift litte Franz got two mini Nike Air Max sneakers, both which he found utterly boring and asked where the other toys were. We also gave him a birthday card with a big 4 and a monkey on it, he loved that, even though his mum reminded us that he was actually turning 3. God, will I ever grow up/become an adult/stop making embarrassing mistakes/not get drunk at a kids party? 3 la bodega negra A few hours later I head down to Soho to meet up with my Daniel to go to this place and celebrate us having been a couple for 2 years. And yes it’s a strip club, but a former one, now turned into a wicked Mexican restaurant called La Bodega Negra. And you guys know how I am weak for secret places, weird layouts and neon signs, so this was heaven. 4 la bodega negra daniel So was my date. 5 la bodega negra And the cocktails and the tacos. Freaky with soft shell crab though: one just swallows the legs and all! But please, EVERYBODY GO HERE. This is my recommendation of 2014. 9 the blind pig We asked the girl waiting our table for a good old bar and she directed us through the maze that is Soho to a secret cocktail bar called the Blind Pig. No sign, just this little chap on a heavy wooden door. 8 daniel at the blind pig And oh boy was it good! A long copper bar with warehouse windows and oak furniture, playing old school funk and country. Check it our here. Once again I was in the dreamy South in the states distant from reality and a little bit drunk. We chatted and argued and laughed, as one should. 6 the blind pig I had this divine little whiskey devil before getting the most horrid drink I’ve ever had. It came in a stupid juice box! The waitress kindly explained that that’s their thing, fancy drinks in cheap containers but could assure me that it still contained alcohol(?). All around I noticed people drinking out of McDonald’s cups and airplane boxes wearing expensive shoes and it made me furious. Stupid wealthy community paying £10 for a drink but still want to play poor for a while. It’s not funny, and it’s never cool to mock those in lower social classes than you. Rant over. 9 slim jims As I was annoyed and grumpy Daniel wanted to cheer me up and took me to the old school rock bar I’ve been dying to go to for ages – Slim Jims Liquor Store in Angel. It’s just as dirty and great as one can imagine with the sickest rockers as bartender and the perhaps finest music on this planet. Led Zeppelin, Wanda Jackson, Gun, Iggy Pop, Pink Floyd etc etc <3 Drinking pints and listening to that music definitely got me in a great mood and is so so far away from the pretentious but good electronic/hip hop scene in all the other clubs. Apparently the bandana is still going strong in the rock fashion scene. 11 slim jims”Never forget your girls!! Men are 4 Christmas, girls are 4 life.” And tons of wicked rock chick all around, that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. I made friends with a Jackie in the bathroom, who told me she’s a stripper now because there aren’t enough black rock strippers apparently. So she tours around, makes tons of money and has her own show at the biggest theatres now. Filled with 80s rock and American beers me and Daniel bought crisps and then fell asleep on the night bus going back home.   Linn
