On a last post I bemoaned about laziness. Well things change quickly and this week I'm working over 50 hours. I managed to have some extra shifts which keep me busy. They offered me more shifts also to the next  week, but I already had plans.  These outfit pictures were taken last Friday, but I didn't find time to write a post earlier. This awesome knitting which has flashed every now and then on the blog is from Queen of Darkness. I wonder that it is still in a good shape after wearing it...

The sun was sinking behind the mountains, and the shadows were deepening in the woods, when they went on again. The Fellowship of the Ring arrives in Caras Galadhon, the City of the Trees. Haldir leads them through the city, to a really big tree topped by a platform, on which stands the hall of Celeborn and Galadriel, the Lord and Lady of Lórien. The Fellowship is taken up to meet them, and they tell the story of Gandalf's fall in Moria. Celeborn and Galadriel know what the Fellowship's...

Lucretius: De rerum natura. In Latin, Copied by Girolamo di Matteo de Tauris for Sixtus IV, Italy, 1483 - http://www.ibiblio.org/expo/vatican.exhibit/exhibit/f-medicine_bio/Medicine_bio.html. Lucretius, De rerum natura // This elegant manuscript of Lucretius's philosophical poem, copied by an Augustinian friar for a pope, is an example of the interest in ancient accounts of nature taken by the Renaissance curia. The work, written in the first century B.C., contains one of the principal accounts...

Sexual harassment is one of the biggest topics of this autumn. Also Alfred Hitchcock's name has appeared among the harassers. This claim seems out of character regarding Hitchcock's often genial relationships with his leading ladies (some of whom became lifelong family friends). What's more, Hitchcock in my opinion is the greatest film artist who has discussed sexual harassment, from Blackmail to Marnie, always with profound empathy towards the suffering of the female protagonist. Last night I...

I've purchased three of the graphic novels Hard Case Crime has published: The Assignment, Triggerman and Peepland . It's interesting to notice that the director and screenwriter Walter Hill has now stepped into a new career as a script writer for the comics, as The Assignment and Triggerman are based on his scripts. Will there be a novel as well? I have The Assignment floating around the apartment somewhere, but I don't know where, so I haven't read it. It's based on a film he made , which has...

The very first glimpse of my 'Artist of the Month' wall at Gallery Becker. We first painted the wall with Tuija the gallery coordinator, then I had a lovely sushi lunch, before hanging ten small prints on the wall. This just might be one of those growing exhibitions... I still have another ten prints almost finished, maybe I'll add them to this set during November. What a nice day we've had. (I still have to visit post office, but otherwise I think my workday is finished.) #workdiary...

kuva . Suosikkiruokaa matkakohteista ja myös terveellisiä vaihtoehtoja. Matkailun avulla olen vaihtanut omaakin ruokavaliotani vihreämmäksi ja vähän monipuolisemmaksi. Ekaksi ranskalaisia ruokia: Nizzan salaatti, johon tulee: salaattia, kananmunaa, kirsikkatomaatteja, perunaa, pippuria, retiisiä, oliivia. Kastikkeeksi esim. oliiviöljy tai vinegar. Tämä salaatti on harvinaisen täyttävä perunan ansiosta ja siihen voi kokeilla myös papuja. Tonnikalan tilalle voi valita jotain...

Mietin tänään arkeani ja huomasin, että minä kirjoitan tällä hetkellä kaikissa elämäni osa-alueissa aktiivisesti. Opinnoissani on jäljellä vain gradu, johon koetan uhrata noin tunnin ja palan sieluani päivittäin. Teen journalistin töitä, joten yllättäen kirjoittaminen kuuluu siihenkin. Lisäksi teen tällähetkellä projektipäälikön töitä, jossa kirjoitan päivittäin miljoona sähköpostia ja työ on itsessään myös pelkästään kirjoittamista. Kulutan vielä […]...

Red The photograph was taken on October 16th. In a previous posting I wrote: "I thought about stereotypes, for example the feeling that many people from the USA are not really grown up even though they may look like adults." One thing which fits this stereotype extreme well is gun ownership. Only people who haven't grown up can allow such a lax attitude to guns as is the case in the USA.

Olen kirjoittanut samasta aiheesta kahtena edellisenäkin vuonna, mutta kun . On paras mausteaika vuodesta! Syksyisen lämpimät mausteet yhdistettynä kurpitsaan - tai kahviin - on jotain täydellistä. Harmi, että kurpitsat ovat aavistuksen rasittavia työstää (lue: veemäisiä pilkkoa), sillä muuten söisin niitä sesongin salliessa varmaan jatkuvasti. Menneenä viikonloppuna syntyi maukas keitto , mutta näissä kyseinen vihannes oli ihan vain rekvisiittana ja vegaaniseen latteen eksyi...

The two primary pull requests for the 1.0.0 cycle landed today , and so it is time to talk about how to prepare for it. tl;dr If your project runs with NoFlo 0.8 without deprecation warnings, you should be ready for NoFlo 1.0 ES6 first The primary difference between NoFlo 0.8 and 1.0 is that now we’re shipping it as ES6 code utilizing features like classes and arrow functions...

Halloweenin kunniaksi juttu majoituksista joissa kummittelee, tai pitäisi kummitella. Vuosi sitten tein jutun matkakohteista joissa kummittelee. Miltä kuulostaisi yöpyminen ikivanhassa linnassa, sellainen onnistuu Skotlannissa on Barcaldine castle jossa asuu Donald -niminen haamu. Oikea ikivanha linna on aika taianomainen jo itsessään. Miten pääsee: jos menet junalla reitin Glasgow Queen street station - Oban näet kaiken lisäksi maailmankuulun West Highland Line maisemajunareitin ...

Viikko sitten tulivat pakkasyöt. Tavallisesti tulee niin kylmää jo syyskuun lopulla, että väritatar paleltuu, mutta tämä syksy oli lämpimämpi. Kesä kuitenkin oli niin pilvinen, että aloin kerätä väritatarta värjäykseen vasta elokuun lopulla. Jos väritattaren lehden kuivaa niin siitä näkee kuivattuna helposti miten paljon lehdissä on sinistä indigoa. Mitä tummemmaksi lehti kuivuessaan tulee, sitä enemmän lehtiin on muodostunut kasvukauden aikana indigoa, ja näin pystyy...

The Fiery Cross , an 1988 entry in the Mack Bolan series, written by Mike Newton as by Don Pendleton, is something we sorely need, when the Nazis - the so-called alt-right - is marching in the US, and in Finland as well. In the book, Mack Bolan beats the Nazis and the Klansmen somewhere in the Deep South and finds out that the extreme right wing is financed by the Russians (as they might well be in Europe, don't know about the US). The Nazis and the Klansmen are ridiculed throughout the book...
