I’m typically not someone to give a shit about cars, but I’m going to brag here for three seconds and just say that I bought myself a ‘97 Volvo 850 and her name is Birgit and she is perfect. Quite the upgrade from my POS Ford that became literally un-driveable. I had been wanting this exact make and model, even down to the color, so it seemed like fate that I found the listing for it just an hour after the guy had posted it. I got a good deal too, it’s in impeccable condition, and the 850s (non-turbo) have super good reputations. So, Swedish brick for me it is.
Ingmar Bergman, Volvo, Ikea… Sweden just does no wrong.

Going to see this downtown on Tuesday night after I get out of class. It was filmed in 2006 but never received distribution in America until this October on limited release. It’s received divided reviews, but some people compared the cinematography to Terrence Malick, so I’m gonna take my chances. So excited!
