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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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. Aria...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

RPGamer interviewed former Square Enix translator, Tom Slattery, covering his beginnings in the business, how he gained a full-time translating position at Square, a little insight as to what their localization process was like, and also a few of the games he worked on. With regard to specific games, the case of Final Fantasy IV DS was an interesting one in particular. Square initially only required that the existing text for IV from the Game Boy Advance be touched up. IV just so happened to be...




Ei se haita -

Hipp Hipp Hurra idag! Även jag har mycket att fira: Jag dog inte i flunssan, utan den verkar nu vara nästan botad. Enbart litet allergibetonad snuva kvar. Inte heller fick jag hjärtinfarkt, hjärnstillestånd eller blev blind, någonting som jag verkligen oroade mig för igår (på riktigt). Sen har jag hittat de mest perfekta vårskorna ever. Det tog en del kraft och letande, men efter att ha köpt tre par så är jag nu säker på att det tredje paret skor var helt perfekta. De andra två...

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

So we got at it again last weekend. The big break was due to the three song recorded last time being mixed ready for promotional/distributional use. I already waved them around at Popkomm a little bit, so hopefully someone will catch the wave that's going to hit their shores in 2009. We got up an going 6.30 in the morning on saturday. A time that's not very helpfull for the success of the weekend... Arriving at 9.30, with a car full of tired rock-personel, we got Aki to work. Drum recordings...

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

So finally we had the second session for the album on last Saturday. This time we did vocals and rest of the guitars for the three songs we started last time. The tunes are Terra Fungus, Kutteri and Rats and Hatchets (or Hats and Ratchets, I never remember which way it is with the song). We started a little after twelve and got done at around six, so everything was done fairly fast. First of we handled the rest of Tero's guitars. Those got done real fast, even before Peb got to the studio...

Wish you never ever met her at all! Olen viime vuosien aikana seurannut ainakin kahta sinkkublogia ja aivan yhtäkkiä postausten muututtua aivan järjettömän kiinnostaviksi, ei tutun linkin kautta tavoitakaan enää muuta kuin tyhjää. Onko olemassa joku sääntö, että jos bloggailee sinkkuilustaan ja alkaakin seurustelemaan ei voi enää kirjoittaa sinkkublogiinsa? Onko nyt todellakin niin, että blogi tai sen lukijat eivät kestä sinkun elämän muutosta? Vai onko se niin, että...

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

Damn, the days just seem to roll by when it's summer time. So we actually had the first recordings already a week or so ago. We took two days with the crew saturday and sunday (7.-8.6) and laid down drums, basses and most of the guitars for three tracks. Those tunes were Kutteri, Terra Fungus and Hats and Ratchets. For once we got to start in time, as the guys arrived at Vantaa on 10.30 Saturday morning. One missed turn took the extra 30 minutes but no harm there. Toni, Perttu and Aki had taken...

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...

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...

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...
