Venue: Berns Salonger
Eight hours from Toronto to Europe, and signs of wear were beginning to surface. What was the longest flight of the tour thus far started to produce a certain measure of anxiety.
Erika Ramirez: Wow, 3 p.m. here. Just hopped on the bus straight from the plane and of course Elliott Wilson is already turnt up.
Elliott Wilson: Wheels down! Stockholm. Muthafuckin Sweden.
J. Escobedo Shepherd: I puked up my first ever 5 hour energy drink last night.
Elliott Wilson: Jet Life.
Tim Dormer: What's Sweden famous for besides Ikea and ABBA? 3rd stop Stockholm here we come baby! Three more sleeps until Unapologetic!
Jeff Rosenthal: I miss sleep, Internet and not having Rihanna songs stuck in my head.
Jason Newman: For the first time in my life, I had to Google "What time is it?"
Maud Deitch: I've completely lost all sense of time, am living in a fugue state beyond jetlag.
Elliott Wilson: We out chea.
Mary H.K. Choi: We are in Stockholm! It's dark at 4 p.m. We feel crazy. J. Escobedo Shepherd can't stop talking about the Mayan apocalypse. VERY REASSURING.
J. Escobedo Shepherd: Sweating profusely in Stockholm, got 3 hours of plane sleep, sitting on a bus in pitch dark at 4 p.m. Beginning stages of Lord of the Flies.
Jason Newman: It's a sad day. Or night. Or whatever day it is.
J. Escobedo Shepherd: We are definitely going to kill each other at some point, sparked by delirium and food.
Maud Deitch: Gabe will protect us.
J. Escobedo Shepherd: This might permanently alter my sanity, clearly "rock star" is a job I wouldn't acclimate to very well travelwise.
According to J. Escobedo Shepherd, Gabe speaks up: “At this point, it's just survival tactics" which sends others into sheer panic. Questions were asked:
Mary H.K. Choi: What if the world ended but we didn't know because we were on the plane? What if only we were left?
And then, the hunger pangs truly kicked in.
Soo-Young Kim: Everything's closed at the airport.
