Stephu's Complete Guide to Celestial Linguistics -

So there's been another small break in posting, yes? Well, the reason, besides time and motivation related problems, is mostly this: The ideas in my head worth writing about usually are either about science/the humanities, ecological/social issues or "philosophy". The first two or four are something other people are more qualified to write about and all you people out there deserve to read about them from knowledgeable sources, which I mostly am not, not even about linguistics beyond the...

Päivi & Santeri - Matkalla elämässä ja maailmalla. -

It's no news that Thailand is touristy. It has been that way for decades, but still the number of holiday-makers is disconcerting to us.

Sirpaleita elämästäni -

Kuten edellisessä postauksessa kerroin, oli maanantaina vuorossa eräs first time ever meikäläiselle: akupunktio. Jännitti ihan sutena eikä asiaa todellakaan auttanut se, että lääkäri alkoi pistellä niitä neuloja ensin kasvoihin ja yhden päälaellekin. Mutta on tunnustettava, ettei se sattunut. Neulan laittaminen nipisti, muttei sen enempää kuin veritipan ottaminen sormenpäästä (paitsi että niitä yleensä ei oteta kymmentä eikä kasvoista) ja sen jälkeen olo oli jotakuinkin...

Sirpaleita elämästäni -

Lauantaina vietettiin mummun hautajaisia. Ihan perinteinen setti, siunaus kappelissa, arkku autoon (valitsimme tuhkauksen) ja muistotilaisuus. Kaikki meni niinkuin pitikin. Otsikko liittyy siihen, että ensimmäistä kertaa ikinä olin kantamassa arkkua. Tätähän pohdin kertaalleen isän kuoleman jälkeen ja ajatus jäi muhimaan. Siskoa ei tarvinnut erikseen suostutella hommaan, vastaus oli heti "joo". Päätimme ottaa keskiparin, niin että jos meiltä olisi sattunut putoamaan, ei olisi...

Haaveilijan kotona -

Behind Finlandia Hall around the construction site, there are some nice pictures and some interesting thoughts painted in the walls. We had a walk there and I took some pictures of my favorites. I went by again today, and noticed new ones again. I love stencil graffitis and some of these pictures look a little alike. Who ever made these paintings happen, thank you! They sure cheer me up! The first painting by Laura Orelma. Others I couldn't find. Go have a walk in Töölönlahti and see for...

Just for fun -

*does a stupid victory dance* So I finally got a summer job that's actually related to computer science. Happy happy, joy joy! I was almost certain I'd get nothing CS related and was prepared to spend the summer mostly chilling out, maybe taking few summer classes but a couple of days ago I received an email telling that I'd actually been hired for the place I'd interviewed for some days ago. I haven't written about the interview but I didn't feel it went that well overall and was pretty sure...

Scalada - all about Scala -

Implicit conversion is a useful mechanism, because it lets you extend libraries retroactively, without actually changing them. Let's take a common example. We would like to repeat some String, say "nice" three times. We could write it as: def *(times: Int, original: String) = { def multiply(times: Int): String = { if(times > 1) original + multiply(times - 1) else original } multiply(times) } As a bit of a sidenote, multiply is not tail-recursive, because its recursive call is not the last thing...

Scalada - all about Scala -

Ah, feels good to hack a bit of Scala after a while. A friend of mine was thinking about getting more lightweight syntax for list creation and I had urge to try something out. A simple way would be to create an implicit def that would lift a value to list:      implicit def valueToList[a](value: a) = List(value) Now you could have expressions like      5 :: 3 (of type List[Int]) But just for fun I tried different approach that uses functions as intermediate values. After playing with it a...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

Hello everybody! It's been now a while I wrote here last time. But I have a very good excuse. I have been busy! This post will be my last one considering my journeys in Southeast Asia. I hope you have liked to read these stories. I can tell you that this time what I spent in SE Asia has been more perfect, more beautiful and totally more exciting that I could have ever imagined. It was great time I had there but now it's time to look forward again. I have started to work in a finnish company and...

Velhametsä -

According to the south-Swedish newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad , Sverigedemokraterna is popular among youth , or, as the researcher suggets, it might just be a sign of teenage rebellion. Here are some excerpts from the article: "Every other ninth-grader does not know what party they would vote for in the parliamentary elections, or if they would vote at all, shows the extensive opinion research. At the same time the Sweden Democrats are enjoying great support. They became the most popular party...

Bird's food -

How do you enjoy your coffee/tea? Usually I drink tea - coffee is a speciality for me, and then it should be of good quality and well made. I prefer tea plainly as it is, in winter I tend to use honey, but not much and it must be solid (the running kind of honey seems to be sweeter). I'm up for everything except for black tea or cheap teabags. Green & herbal teas are good. Fruity teas not. When I drink coffee I usually take a cappuccino, or then coffee made in a pan (or a presso-pan) just plain...

A journey to a healthier life. -

I've never, ever, ever have liked running. Never. In fact, I even remember my gym class teacher once telling me that I couldn't run. Like that was a hard fact that couldn't be changed. At least after then, I've never even tried jogging. This autumn I've taken a project to start living at least a little bit healthier. So, as a part of my project, I went walking (speed-walking, you might say) around two weeks ago, for the first time in an extremely long time. I didn't go alone, no, I had my iPod...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

Wow.. it has been a long time since I wrote here last time. Heh, it's a bit funny that I wrote earlier that I will write here maybe twice a month. Huh, that just ain't gonna work. I realized that I am living here on Pulau Penang just an ordinary life. Nothing very special is going to happen that often. So I decided to forget this blog for a while. But now I am back. Why? Probably because I felt like writing something up again. I just felt like gathering my memories here a little bit. The thing...

Long time no update... sometimes life needs a bit more privacy, or there is less to elaborate. Nothing major's been happening, and I still can't do elaborate descriptions about feelings. Weather will hit 100 F mark in the next few days. That will be time spent at pool, and with some good reads. I got some new toys recently: an ice cream maker (I got the green one as they didn't have the yellow ones in store), some new ikea shelves and gadgets, a few books... on the list of next ikea purchases...

Rio Baile Funk -

Wow, what a massive party weekend! Today it's the the last ever Rumble at Inkonst in Malmö. The Rumble is somewhat of a club institution in Scandinavia, running for almost five years with guests like Diplo , Buraka Som Sistema , David Rodigan , Bode do Role , Sinden , Simian Mobile Disco , DJ Funk , Crookers , A-Trak , Scottie B , Rusko , Skream and so many more . I was playing there in April 2009 and it has been one of my top5 gigs ever. But this time it's a very special end party with DJ...

Kopioin facebookista leffa-arvosteluni. Kirjoitin sinne tänään myös Star Trekistä, voin kopioida senkin myöhemmin. Facebook-kieleni on englanti, joten kielikylpyä lukijoille. :) Here's the thing: Even if one were normally attracted to non-macho metrosexual types, so metrosexual that a lot of other girls go "What, someone finds THAT attractive? What about this latin lover right next to it?", but you just go "Nah, I prefer this" (completely hypothetically speaking, cough)... Even if one...

COUNTRY & WESTERINEN -

Tuesday night gig came & went. Fun it was, as usual. Janne F who booked us for the gig (and about 20 other artists to a variety of bars and clubs that festival night) was there to listen to the first set. He happened to overhear a blond, seemingly enthusiastic lady complimenting our output as "the best Finnish music she has ever heard". Eh... We are grateful and humble to recieve this sort of appreciation, but if anybody knows the lady, would you kindly hint her, that Country and Westerinen...

COUNTRY & WESTERINEN -

... you won´t find beautiful women on a country gig in Finland? Who ever it was, hereby proven wrong. Some of the finally recovered shots from the gig at Bar Olotila in May here. Copyright by Anni H. Thanks. Ha! Evidence of All-U smiling! The band was finally doing something right - or his mind just wandered off... As U can see behind T-Rox here, Country & Westerinen is also putting big time effort on visualising the show (thanks VJ Yohoney). Screen is also used for the audience to see better...

Oh yeah, we smashed it, we killed it with DJ Babydoll and The Rumble exploded! The maddest, craziest party ever. The people we're really down on it, from the cartboard space invader dropping from the ceiling to the gals climbing up on the walls. Gotta love The Rumble , the crowd gives such a massive response immediately when they digg a tune! I mean, hands in the air like WTF! I can't remember sweating so much in a loooong time... Special shout out to Gnucci Banana for gettin pon the stage to...

Rio Baile Funk -

As some of you might know I'm part of a DJ crew called Boom Shakalaka here in Helsinki, Finland. This summer is gonna be big for us as things are moving forward on many fronts. When we do remixes we've always searched samples from african, brazilian and other latin american sources trying to dig deep into other cultures. But then we started wondering why don't we ever dig to our own roots and own musical culture. And as a result we started experiementing with old finnish folk and accordeon...

Dili Days Decrease -

Finland has won the Eurovison song contest. Now, this was always thought to be something as probable as pigs having wings. After more than 40 years of repeted humilation, the victory came with an utterly unconventional pice of music, ' Hard Rock Hallelujah ', presented by a monster band Lordi . An as if that weren't enough, they also scored the highest points in the history of the contest. Now, I just wonder who seriously wants to listen to that sort of music... (many people, apparently). Well...

Dili Days Decrease -

It is still hard to understand how little there were visible signs of upcoming misfortune in second-last week of April. Even if there were some tension in the air, I still wouldn’t ever have anticipated what was coming, as I have reported earlier. These photos are from 21 and 22 April, my last day at the UNDP office as well as the farewell party and the departure from the airport. At that time, it was still more or less business as usual. There are more related pictures here. Thanks again...

Under the Never Sky Julkaistu  2012, suomennos 2012 362 sivua. Veronica Rossi on uusi tuttavuus ja esikoiskirjailija (onpas muuten tullut luettua harvinaisen paljon näitä viime aikoina). Blogger-sivuillaan Rossi kertoo olevansa alunperin Brasiliassa syntynyt, mutta asuvansa Kaliforniassa. Paljaan taivaan alla on trilogian avausosa ja kakkonen, alkuperäiseltä nimeltään Through the Ever Night , julkaistaan tammikuussa, joten suomennoksenkin voisi veikata ilmestyvän kevään aikana.

Olen aina tykännyt kirjailuista vaatteissa. Ja hameista. Monta vuotta olen suunnittelut kirjovani villakankaalle kuvioita ja ompelevani siitä hameen. Ostin kerran kankaankin sitä varten. Koskaan en saanut aikaan. I've always loved embroideries in clothes. And I've always loved skirts. For many years I've planned that one day I'll fill a woollen fabric with embroideries and sew that fabric into a skirt. I even bought the fabric for the embroidery one day. But I never made it. Pari vuotta...
