  1. Thanks! So am I. Well, it's not that I don't understand that she has a bunch of security people and stuff, but what amazes me in a mind-blowing, like, whoa!-sort of way is that anyone can be so paranoid as believing that someone would do such a thing and being so stupid as to sign the invitation with his or her real name. (Which can easily be checked with the festival management.) And another thing that bothers me is fanmail not being forwarded to it's intended recipient. (If that's the case here, I don't know for sure.) And them not even replying to me, but instantly branding me as some nut not even worth responding to. Are you saying that this level of paranoia is common, everyday behaviour in the US? Since you don't seem as surprised as myself. To me, it's almost incomprehensible how someone can misinterpret my e-mail to that degree. If it is, I sure am glad to be living in Sweden. Concerning Far, I am enjoying it right now! Peace and Love from Sweden.
  2. I thought this would fit in the "Stories" section. This year I was thrilled over being selected to work as a volunteer during the Hultsfred festival in Sweden the same year that Regina was going to perform. I was even more thrilled over the fact that I was going to be part of the Artist transports-group, which perhaps could mean that there was a slim chance of me actually being the one to give Regina a ride from the airport to the festival. Since I had read a post somewhere in this very forum that Regina liked a book called "Karlsson on the roof" by the late swedish author Astrid Lindgren, I thought that it would be neat to show Regina the author's birthplace which is just nearby of the festival site and in which a lot of the stories take place. So I wrote an e-mail throught the only contact I could think of, her management office, offering, in a very polite manner, to show her that special place during the festival. I asked them to forward the message to Regina herself so that she could decide whether she found it interesting or not. Just one very simple question. Well, today I got a phone call from the Head of Security at Hultsfred festival saying that the people around Regina, (and possibly Regina herself, I wasn't told exactly who it was) had completely freaked out about the whole thing, and was worried that there was some psycho kidnapper trying to get his hands on Regina by luring her into this horrible place: www.vimmerbyturistbyra.se/eng This resulted in me being kicked out of the volunteering group, and not being able to go and see Regina perform at all. How's that for a story? My thoughts around this is, besides just being plain disappointed, is that I wonder how come they didn't just reply to me instead of making this mess. I would have accepted a "No" for an answer and at least I could have seen her perform. And I wonder if Regina ever got to see my e-mail or if all this was in the hands of her management. I would like to know if Regina, who always seems really sympathetic and nice, was this afraid of my invitation, or if it was the work of her "people". Greetings from Sweden
