Eckhart Tolle answers the question of music -
Don't be depending on listening to music to be present - the music is inside you (it's not in the notes that you play, it's in the notes you don't play).
Presence should not be bound to one thing. When you listen to music and you feel connected, switch of the music and continue listening to the 'music' inside you. Once you feel the 'now', stop, and listen.
Use art to connect to the 'now', then put it away, close your eyes and continue to feel the presence.

Last.fm is making some important changes to the radio services we offer around the world. We have considered these changes carefully, in response to various factors that affect our business differently in parts of the world.
The key changes are as follows:
In Denmark, we are no longer offering a radio service after this date.
We are always looking at ways to bring music to more people, when it can be done so economically, and we hope to be able to open streaming to a wider audience in the future.
Up until now, radio has been a subscription only feature. However, from Tuesday 15 January 2013, unfortunately we are no longer able to provide radio streaming to these countries, even to subscribers, due to licensing restrictions. Scrobbling remains free and your listening data, charts and recommendations will not be affected by this change.
Our subscription package will continue to offer other benefits, including an ad-free browsing experience site-wide, access to demos on Last.fm Playground, and other features we’re working hard to add.
However, we understand if you wish to cancel your subscription. If this is the case, please see our FAQ for information on how to cancel. If you have paid for a subscription longer than 30 days up-front, you can request a refund.
We will continue to look at the state of the market in other territories and hope to expand again in future as it becomes more viable.

Sat 1 Oct – VETO, Rangleklods
Support was better than expected, but to be honest, the sound was disappointing.
Especially Veto didn't come across very well and the drums sounded unnecessary. muted.
I am always impressed by Veto's discipline and focus on stage, but this Staurday they were "pleasant" at best. Not good enough guys ..
Not good when I had dragged in some Germans too see one of DK's best live acts in a very pro venue.
Lug 4 2011, 14:12But my WiMP, HypeMachine and Last.fm app on my iPhone 4 won't scrobble.
Giu 14 2011, 20:58But please don't cut back on the food quality. Art & Food should follow each other!
Sat 11 Jun – Northside Festival
Feb 18 2011, 10:55Wed 16 Feb – Band of Horses, Mike Noga at Übel & Gefährlich
Once more we took the drive from Denmark to Hamburg, to go to Club Übel & Gefährlich. Last time I was there, I was amassed but not impressed by the venue.
The club is located on top of a IIWW bunker in the St. Pauli district - hence it screams alternative punk rock. On paper that sounds awesome.
I don't mind that scene at all, but I hate the We-don't-give-a-shit-attitude towards their customers with lusy PR, comfort and service all over. There was hardly any BOH PR to spot in the city, but the show was sold out!! So for me the secrecy get's old before it even starts. Maybe you have to be a part of it to gain some respect and insider advantages. I know the scene, because I've been a part of it back in the days.
Killer supporting act
Before going to the show I checked out the supporting act Mike Noga. It sounded like something I've heard a hundred times before and I'd rather spend my time eating than listening to it. So we tried to be at the venue to maybe catch the last 15 minutes instead. But noo.. Mike Noga played and chatted he's way through an hour as if he had all the time in the world - followed by a 30 minutes changeover!
He obviously had a good time on stage but stole valuable time from the audience on a Wednesday night. Luckily the venue finally opened their extra bar in the back and we could at least pass the time drinking beer.
I don't think you can blame Übel & Gefährlich for the misplaced supporting act, since they are probably touring with BOH, but if there was any enthusiasm to the crowd as we got in, the chatty support killed it.
Finally - The Band
So finally when BOH got on stage the crowd was a bit tired after a dog cold February day and a couple of beers in the warm sold out venue. The cheer as they walked on stage was modest unfortunately. The last time I saw BOH at www.Voxhall.dk it was an entirely different scenario, with a warm welcoming spirit and conversation with the crowd.
This time I almost felt anger form Ben Bridwell. They played the set with edge and noise and barely talked. They walked on stage with a "Hello we are BOH and we are going to play a couple of songs for you alright?" and they walked off stage with a "Thank you - you suck!" (I think) So I got the feeling BOH had as bad as an experience as I did and probably won't come back either.
The minute BOH walked of stage the venue turned on blinding spot light from the stage into the crowd making it unbarrable to stay and hang out. What bigger "fuck off" do you need?
Therefore the name of the club translates to Arrogant & Hostile to me, you won't risk anything but respect visiting the venue.
Thankfully we had a great day im Karoviertel und an der Schanze, so the drive was worth it. There are a lot of great acts coming up and other venues to check out so we will definitely be back in Hamburg.
Ago 3 2010, 7:47Bork Havn Musikfestival 2010
Yet again, I am hosting the main stage at Bork Havn Musikfestival. Yes I know. Sounds.. unfamiliar. Doesn’t it? Well if you know Bork Havn, you know this festival. And if you like Danish live music, this is the place to be at the very west coast of Denmark - every year!
