My winter months in Stockholm were filled with bitterness and gloom, fueled by self-imposed isolation and 4 hours of sunlight per day. The only cure was a mix CD full of cathartic music.

Here is the cover, sized for Jewelboxing's King Size cases. The art is a page ripped from a book I found at a Stockholm bar called The Library. Just discovered tonight that the dude is a Swedish boxer named Ingemar Johansson who won the World Heavyweight Championship in 1955. Fitting that the guy shares my middle name. He looks like I felt at the time.

    Your middle name is Ingemar? Cool.

    He kinda looks like I felt during the month of September, which was also all about self-imposed isolation. It felt necessary at the time, but I'm glad I pulled myself out of it. Sometimes music + exercise + a good haircut are all it takes to get oneself back on track.

    My middle is Johansson. Got it from my mom's maiden name. That way I'm both my mom's and my dad's. I like it.

    Ah. My mother's maiden name is also my middle name. I like it, too.

    I saw that cover at your office, really nice. It's the inside I want though. Class acts, everyone of them.

    In Sweden, everyone knows him as "Ingo."
