Lets make the next Autumn the best we've ever had

It's been around one week or something since I updated the blog last, in the previous posts I filled you guys in about Dot SE's #TwitcamDays! In case you missed them, check them out below:

- Johan's twitcam
- Adam's twitcam 
- Sam's twitcam 


Leading on from that, in the post about Sam's twitcam, I mentioned if you hadn't already heard from the guys themselves that Adam and Sam were heading out to Turkey on holiday with friends, they've now returned back to Sweden and have had a great week! A few pictures are below to see what they got up too ;)



They also won a karaoke competition in a karaoke bar in Antalya - it was great seeing them sing a song that Adam has previously covered, and they both smashed it, I guess you could say that they are ready for the spotlight now, meaning the stage along with Johan ..Check out there performance by watching the video :)



Upon return, I think it's safe to say after their fun, refreshing holiday, the boys are ready to work harder than ever to make the music and for it to finally be released! - Stay tuned for Autumn ;) As Adam says, dream big and your dreams come true ;)


Johan has been waiting on the guys return so they can all start working as a trio, in between this, he's been enjoying as much of the weather as possible, as it's been raining in Sweden quite often :/ but nevertheless, the pictures show he is having a good time!



Anyway, have a great weekend, hopefully soon, there will be something fun for the readers going on :D

Have a great Sunday

Sam's twitcam

Hi guys, girls and everyone who's reading!

Today was the final day of #TwitcamDays and your host was Sam!

He started out by again talking about Dot SE and the whole situation with Simon, he said sorry and that just like it's been hard on you fans, it's been hard on the guys too!

He got asked loads of question just like Adam and Johan,

What's your favourite One2Five cover and Dot SE cover? 
- Don't Wake Me Up, as you know I like Chris Brown and I like the harmonies in it.

Do you talk to Michael? 
- No, it's been about 1 year, but I read his messages and I'm really grateful, he's a hard working guy and deserves to get what he wants

Sam then went on to talk about drinking and self harm as someone tweeted him. He said don't drink until you're 18 it's not good for you. And about self harm he said that if someone is hurting you, don't hurt yourself even more, a big no on self harm, don't do it!

Before the end on the twitcam he said that after him and Adam are back from Turkey they will start working again together with Johan as Dot SE, they will work harder than ever because literally, it's now or never, we've been close a couple of times, we all know what we want so it's now, we will work as hard as we can!


And that's it! It was a good twitcam and lots of questions were answered!
Sam saved it so if you want to watch it, scroll down below, last but not least, have fun in Tukey Adam and Sam :)

And everyone else, have a great weekend :D

Adam's twitcam :)

So firstly I gotta say I'm so grateful to all you wonderful readers! In the past two days the blog statistics have blown up.. and I mean literally! The reader count is top secret between me and the band, but I'm so, so, so, humbled and I'm pretty sure that the guys feel the same!

There have been two posts, click here and here to read it :)

Today was day 2 of #TwitcamDays with Dot SE and today Adam was the host!

He kick started by answering the normal questions how are you and so on .. it's Adam, he's smiley all the time :) hahah

He went on to speak about the whole Dot SE situation and Simon, with all due respect, he didn't want to speak about it which is absolutely fair enough on his part as he just wanted to have the 20 minute twitcam to be positive and talk with everyone watching and tell people about the future and good news! :D

Adam was also asked what his favourite song was right now -
He couldn't decide but he said that during the night at work, he listens to so much music like Eminem and Westlife.. he went on too say that while he works, he noticed things that he never has done before like an artist or band that you think is really really good, normally have 3 main amazing songs on an album and the rest of the songs fill it up but aren't necessarily amazing.

A lot of fans that were watching were curious as to when Adam's gonna record and release another Wednesday singing video on his youtube channel, he said that he would do one but couldn't record one after the twitcam because his Mom was sleeping as she also works night shifts.

He got asked tons of questions throughout the twitcam here are the majority:

What do you think about Sweden?
- I love Sweden, the city I grew up in has given me the perfect tools for life

When will you release the learn Swedish with Adam video?
- I definitely will release it, it's just I have like 5 huge ideas for it

What's your favourite Dot SE cover?
- Heartbreaker / Your're all that matters to me, it's my favourite because we mean every word, as a singer when you sing, you need to be able to feel the emotion and in that song, it feels like we all mean every word we sing

What do you think about Italy?
- I've never been but I've heard it has good pasta, good pizza and beautiful girls

Will you ever do a cover next to the Eiffel Tower?
- That would be cool!

What inspired you to sing?
- Actually, in 2004 the first episode of Swedish Idol was aired and I sat a guy called Darin sing Un-break My Heart by Toni Braxton, I thought his voice was so angelic and incredible.. plus the response from the girls in the crowd was amazing! After watching I went out that night with headphones in and was determined to sing. I sang for a few months, after I heard a recording I hated my voice and was so close to giving up, but I worked super hard. At first it was because of girls and getting famous, but it singing makes me feel happy. It's a way for me to express my inner feelings. You should all try singing, even if it doesn't sound good, do it for fun :D

Favourite country apart from Sweden?
- Thailand I went back packing there fore 3 months

Rihanna or Katy Perry?
- Katy Perry

(not a question) You look like Luke Hemmings
- I've never been compared to him before! It must be my hair, but there will be a new video to say which hair I keep soon!

How long does it take for you to do your hair?
- This style, literally 40 seconds

Adam went on to mention that him and Sam are heading to Turkey with friends for 1 week. They are going to relax and enjoy the sun there :) Once he's back he's going to buy a computer so that he can record covers, so there will loads more, as right now, he's dependant on Sam, because it's Sam's computer that can record the covers so once he has his own, he will be able to record tons more! But he does have around four Super Mario episodes ready to be edited :)

He spoke about a competition that he mentioned about on his last twitcam, he said he hasn't forgotten about it, but he'll sort things out once he's back from Turkey because he needs to send the prize to a friend, but if you know him, it's something that he loves that he wants to give

Since the band lost a member, the three guys are working harder than ever, they are constantly texting, online meetings everyday, there is more talking about the future than ever before! They guys they would have been signed by in Stockholm are still interested and there is plans for a single and album to be released this fall. Between Adam, Sam and Johan there are talks of whether they can continue as a trio or do they need a fourth member? Adam took the opportunity to thank everyone who have been with them through the hard times, he feels blessed and humbled. The band will never stop aiming high and they hope to meet Simon at the top.


And that's it, Adam's twitcam lasted longer than 20 minutes, it was around half an hour, but it was good to be able to catch up with him! Sam also clocked in for a little while too :D

And you guys are super luck because Adam actually saved it ;) haha!

Have a good evening :) and tomorrow, I'll be back with Sam's twitcam summary

Johan's twitcam

You get a real sense of satisfaction when you update the blog after months and suddenly the statistics blow up :D it gives such a a good feeling of appreciation from you Dot SE fans! - Thank you for always being so dedicated to the blog and to Dot SE!

So check out the latest update here, there's lots of information in it and news of upcoming twitcams, including tonight ;)

Okay, so yesterday Johan did a twitcam and spoke a bit about what's going on at the moment and what the future holds for Dot SE!

He also mentioned how humbled he was to see so many viewers, he then asked people who were watching to add the #TwitcamDays


He said that he had a great day as he spent it with his younger sister Emelie

Johan answered some questions too,

What's your favourite song at the moment?
- That's a hard question, but I'm going to pick two, Maps by Maroon 5 and Break Free by Ariana Grande.

Have you ever been to Spain?
- No, but I've been to Gran Canaria which is an island.

What makes you happy?
- Dot SE makes me happy, Adam, Sam and Simon of course, we want to do our own thing, music is my life and I'm bless to be able to do what I love in life.

What does the future hold for Dot SE now?
- We will be going to Stockholm  to work with Quiz and Larossi to work on our single. We are still in search of finding that smash hit song, it's going to be really fun!

He spoke some Swedish and German during the twitcam too

Before he ended the 20 minute twitcam he wanted to thank all the fans for their dedicated support throughout the past few days, it means a lot to him, Adam & Sam and of course, Simon. He said that they've been through a lot and it has been tough, but they are moving on, although this chapter has ended, another journey has only just begun and the future looks brighter than the fans think! Last but not least, he said there are top secret things going on - so stay tuned!

And that was the end of the twitcam!

Hope that makes all the people that missed it feel better ;) haha!

I'll probably update the blog again tonight after Adam's twitcam at 6pm Swedish time - you're in for treat as you're getting lots of news from the blog again! :D

..And then there was 3

Hey fans of Dot SE!

Little did I know that nearly four months after the last post about Adam, this is the way that I would be updating the blog. Shock is the best way to put it! 

Like the tittle says, and then there was 3, that's correct, if you didn't already here the news from the guys themselves, Simon has taken the decision to leave the band. It can't have been an easy decision for him especially since the guys were due to be returning to Stockholm, to sign a record deal and this was all waiting on them 3 days before he told them what he wanted!! :/ Simon has decided to go after his dream on a solo mission concentrating on Asia, whereas the 3 remaining guys in Dot SE, Adam, Sam and Johan, still want to concentrate on targeting Sweden first then the rest of Europe and so on, their ultimate dream is to be known worldwide. Before I go on to say what has been happening in the last four months with the 3 guys, best of luck to Simon in his mission - I'm sure you can make it, there are a lot of people backing you :)





So lets back track to May 2014, the last time I updated the blog. I wrote an insider post into a little bit more about Adam, click here to read it :) Since then in June, Adam has been busy, he's got a night job at the post office in Jonkoping, life is kinda upside down as he says :P In June Adam also celebrated 1 year ;) Following that in July, he got one of his idol's autographs all the way from the USA courtesy of ;) ... In all honesty, he's been super busy with his job, friends, enjoying summer and the beautiful sun & heat! In between this, he's been trying to get gaming video's out as often as he can, you can check them out on his youtube channel right here.  His cover of  Do I have to cry for you clocked in as 1 year old too! One of the best covers he's done, although I say that to them all xD hahah

Sam is pretty much the same as Adam, he has a job in Jonkoping too at the hospital, but he works normal times :P hahah! He's working hard at his job, working out like a boss and still keeping up with the music! He recently released a new cover, super good! I don't remember if I mentioned in a previous post or not, he also went to Turkey with a friend, to Alanya and in a couple of weeks he's going back with Adam and more friends! Alanya & Antalya are such beautiful places I went there two years in a row, great holiday choice!! :D Sam also plays for a football team, so he's regularly attending the training and playing matches








As for Johan, he took a trip with his whole family to Crete in July! I know once he returned to Sweden he missed it a lot! He was also looking forward to going to Stockholm, because as you know, Johan loooves Stockholm! Other than that, I'm not too sure what he's been up too, I know in the past he has a job at a local cafe, so he could still be working there, but I'm not entirely sure :P I know that he's also working out and having fun in the sun with friends :) A few weeks back, Johan tweeted fans asking if they want him to release a solo cover, if you do, tweet him or Dot SE ;)



So, now the band are 3, it's a shame they started as 5 but it's okay, because all 5 of them will get to where they want to be one day! It's just the end of another chapter for Dot SE, but it's also the beginning of a brand new one! There's a saying that goes along the lines of "the longer you wait for something, the more you'll appreciate it once you get it, because anything worth having is definitely worth waiting for." along with this, there's another saying "Don't give up on a dream because the time it takes for it to come true will pass anyway." If you think about these saying's then you won't be sad about what has happened, always be positive! Here's to a new era for Dot SE. And the guys are kicking it off by having a twitcam 3 days in a row, starting today, first up Johan at 6pm today, then Adam tomorrow at 6pm and Sam at 6pm on Friday.

I would have updated the blog back in July, but I was waiting for Adam to answer which he still hasn't we are planning to do something fun for the readers, I'm not sure if he remembers but hopefully things will work out :) Other than that, in terms of band news, Karmin saw the guys cover :) and their facebook page is nearly at 100,000 likes! I'm also soon gonna give away an autograph from all the guys, including Simon so stay tuned :D


I hope this post has filled you fans in just that little bit more :)

take care
Farhaana :) xx

(Hahahah, I joke, of course, some of what I just wrote, I will tell, but some I won't, I mean, I don't think Adam will appreciate me doing that, you know, there is a risk of fan girls turning up outside his house & his phone to blow up from phone calls and I know for sure, he doesn't want that to happen xD) But anyway, enough of my fantastic jokes, I'll go ahead and start the post! ;)

Lets back track to the early days, on how Adam began to sing.. he was just 16.. lets put that in proportion, the guy is 26 now (21 at heart though!!) I'm not going to go into detail of the first time Adam sang, but believe it or not, when he first started out, he didn't know if he even like his singing voice or not, hard to believe, right?!

Anyway, fast forward a few years to I don't know, lets say 2010 / 2011.. still long before Dot SE were around. Adam, back then was a solo artist! A solo artist known as Adam Bodus, the story behind his solo name is the cutest.. his imaginary friend when he was a young child was called Bodus and that's how his artist name came about :)) .. He occasionally did covers alone and with Sam, to name a few, It Girl, Just The Way You Are, Common Denominator and On My Mind. During his solo days, he did apply to Swedish Idol. In this time, he even released a single on iTunes, that was recorded and Mastered in just 14 hours!!

Add one year more and your at May 2012.. the formation of One2Five.. Adam and the other four created the band. Keep in mind, he's never had any singing lessons!!

Fast forward to January 2013, the guys were in LA... from One2Five, the guys lost a member and became Dot SE and if you look at the date, today is the 28th of May and here we are.. Adam's a band member in Dot SE and working hard to make his dreams come true!

I hope that those of you that didn't know a lot about Adam now do :D

Check out the funny side of Adam.. and how to get abs.. it's clearly working for him xD hahah




But, for now, I leave you with a cover that gives me goosebumps virtually every time I listen to it, his incredible voice right there.




This is an all time favourite post!! Check it out by clicking here ;)

Thank you for reading as always, you're more amazing than you can even imagine!!
Don't forget, sharing is caring - share the blog link, tag me and a Dot SE member in the tweet to be in with a chance of getting Adam's autograph! (Must be following us both)

Throwback to february 2013!! 




Love
Farhaana :) xx


*** Don't faint .. evidently Adam's workout in the park, works xD ****
