Back to HEL -

It's still taking me some adjusting to see and hear weirdly behaving people in the streets of Hel. One day while in the tram, I saw a girl outside leaning heavily forward, carrying a cello on her back and covering her ears with her hands wrapped in thick gloves. Was she showing her existential anxiety like in Munch's painting 'Scream'? 'Stop the noise, I want to get out of this world.' It took me a moment to realize she was only talking on her cell, covering her other ear to hear better. Then...

Books: Primo Levi: If this is a man? Art Spiegelman: Maus J. E. Salomaa: Friedrich Nietzsche Film: Michael Haneke: Time of the wolf I read a book about a nazi destruction camp. It was Christmas. I was lying next to my wife, not being able to sleep and thought about the surreality of the moment. Of all these loving, caring people around me. This is all going to end, I thought to myself. Make yourself tough and strong, for the destruction will come. You should not fear the suffering, for the...

Style Rookie -

Sunday was the five-year anniversary of this here blob, which I've neglected in the past months in the interest of Rookie , high school, friends, sleep, and other things. Aside from that, I don't feel like I have much to say, or rather, I prefer now to say it in private. My most recent journal is my favorite thing I've ever made, and nobody will ever see it. I have been thinking a lot lately about what validates an emotion/event/observation, makes me feel like it really happened and I really...

Sahti -

Finlandia Sahti is now sold in a plastic bottle! Classic transparent glass bottle seems to be history. Lammin Sahti is still sold in a beautiful, dark brown bottle with an old times bottle top. At first I was shocked when I saw this new bottle but it took about 5 seconds to realize it's not THAT bad. Actually this new bottle is a handy alternative. Light, durable and lower. This new bottle suits even in my fridge! Because of the yeast sahti bottle must be stored upright. It was surprising to...

Musta Aurinko -

Musiikki. Vau. Voisko sanoo sen olevan maailman paras asia? Ei, mut yks parhaista. Tiätteksen fiiliksen, kun joku biisi muistuttaa sua ekasta ihastuksesta, jostaan tilanteesta tai parhaasta läpästä ikinä? Se tuo muistat lähelle ja ne ajatukset, mitä sillon kävi läpi. Kaikki tunteet vaan hyökkää päälle. Mulla on muutama sellanen biisi, jotka tuottaa tän fiiliksen. Ja mä haluun jakaa niitä nyt teijän kanssa. Sunrise Ave - Forever Yours .

Antti Alanen: Film Diary -

Until ten years ago we used to screen nitrate regularly in Finland. We even had extended retrospectives mostly based on nitrate prints, such as a retrospective of the director Ilmari Unho, one of the house directors of the Suomi-Filmi company. Also our Valentin Vaala retrospective was largely based on nitrate. When films are image-driven, based on a painterly vision, "painting with light", to quote the title of the book by John Alton, it is essential to be able to refer to first generation...

It's About Me, Amoena -

I ran a half marathon yesterday. I felt that maybe I should blog something about it, since most people consider it a quite big deal. I, on the other hand, have really mixed feelings now when I have actually finished it. It was just so much easier than I expected. I expected it to be kind of a struggle but in the reality it was just a really long run. I wasn't considerably different than my regular 10km runs. I signed up in February. I wanted to sign up as early as possible so I wouldn't chicken...

Velhametsä -

This is a war that is being waged, and has been waged for many years now, in all major Swedish cities. The truth of this conflict is denied, it is lied about and it is ignored. This war does not exist officially. The majority of the victims of this war are, as in so many wars, innocent civilians. In this case young Swedes. Petra Åkersson has compiled a sociology report and conducted several interviews with young immigrant robbers. I found it surprising, that the results of this report were...

Jussi's Blog -

Dry him well and keep warm , originally uploaded by Jussi Nummelin . We have six small and incredibly cute puppies on the campus at the moment. I guess they are 3-4 weeks old, but the mother doesn't seem to care anymore. Luckily the Indian students do, but the odds are still against all of their survival. This little one is unlucky enough to have LOTS of small brown worms. We tried to wash him (bad idea...) but it didn't help much. The poor guy is itching terribly and crying a lot. We gave them...

Sandt Jaarittelee -

Finished reading Mein Kampf (an English translation of it to be exact, not the one filled with notes). There's been a lot of debate among historians as to whether Hitler's policies once he became chancellor followed a careful plan or whether those policies (such as the Holocaust) emerged more spontaneously, as a reaction to changing circumstances. Some Nazi sympathizers even claim Hitler had no choice but to do what he did because of the hostility of his foreign adversaries. To me it's quite...

You're trying to come up with stuff to do to kill time in Animal Crossing: Wild World. That's when you snap back to your senses. You're like: If I'm bored out of my mind with this game, why can't I play something more inspiring? And I'm like: That's what's up, son. I've been using AC:WW to fill in the blank moments between more meaningful activities. These kind of games are good for that purpose - like smoking a cigarette in a public place just to keep your hands from groping random females...

This is a moment of triumph and jubilee! In spite of aphids munching the leaves, the first tomatos are ripe! There's going to be these red ones, yellow bush-tomatos (yeah, that's the botanically correct term. Not.) and then one plant that's named after my friend's and fellow gardeners baby boy. Looking forward to all of them.

It's time to reveal all and tell you that today I am extremely proud to launch an  online shop here on Sweet Like Cinnamon, selling personalised keepsakes to celebrate life's special moments. I am a big believer in getting all those special photos we take out of our smartphones and onto the walls in our homes where we can see them every day. From this came the idea to design...

Lust, sex and sodomy -

I've had a fairly interesting weekend, I must say. Me and Lisa haven't been in contact much lately since she got pissed off at me for going out with a girl she knows. It's not like she has any say in the matter, but I do understand her. I wouldn't feel too happy about it either if Lisa went out with someone I know. Luckily, however, this girl wasn't especially interesting and I decided not to see her again so I wouldn't mess things up with Lisa more than I already did. Even though we're never...

From time to time, there's a freak appearing to the scene of my escort sex-life. And I totally love them. Coz they pay good money, and coz they're something different, something new, something other than the bang-bang-thank-you-ma'am. Actually, exactly for these freaks I started my escort life, long time ago when it wasn't just about money and next dose. So, there's this guy I've met like an year ago, The Doctor.He's 30-something, not very good looking but not ugly either, he just doesn't have...

Stars Dont Fade ! -

That is a fairly powerful statement - yes, everybody requires a Digital SLR camera . Do not get me wrong - I love point-and-shoot cameras. My first one had 3 mega pixels and I paid over $800 for this. Now I always carry a 6 mega pixel point-and-shoot camera in the trunk of my car. But there is a group of pictures you are going to want to take when just the DSLR camera is going to do. I am talking about action pictures - perhaps not of the game events (although here DSLR can also be necessary)...

The Real Encyclopedia -

Question: Why hasn´t there been any new Q&A´s during the past month? Answer: The problem is that at the moment most of the problems in this world are solved. I have spent the last month trying to create more problems so that the demand for this type of encyclopedia would remain. Other option would be to expand this to other galaxies which still have unsolved problems. I haven´t decided which road I will follow. Fortunately, I can guarantee that the problem solving continues.

Now that I've returned to Magic , I want to take a moment to talk about the cards. Especially in an era of digital entertainment, part of the appeal of any card game is having the actual physical cards to handle, shuffle and look at. With Magic, this is what my high school history teacher would have called a double-barreled sword. On the one hand, I have to be honest: in terms of overall looks and design, getting back to Magic has strongly reminded me of how well-designed the cards of the Lord...

BBC News , a bastion of political correctness, has gone out of its way and published the following article : Does diversity make us unhappy? By Mark Easton Home editor, BBC News It is an uncomfortable conclusion from happiness research data perhaps - but multicultural communities tend to be less trusting and less happy. Research by the Home Office suggests that the more ethnically diverse an area is, the less people are likely to trust each other. The Commission for Racial Equality has also...

Specialist of Finnish literature, Italian scholar and translator Antonio Parente sent me following questions. He has translated 6 of my poems in Italian and this interview will be included. Apart from poetry, you write prose and non-fiction books, essays: which genre is the one you consider the most efficient to deliver your message? 2.
