Tuttuja pistoja -

Tänä aamuna tänne oli vihdoin viimein satanut ensilumen. Jippii! Lisää tätä metritolkulla! Nyt joku kesäihminen tietenkin vetää herneet nenäänsä mutta minä vain kerta kaikkiaan rakastan lunta ja talvea ja kaikkea ihanaa mitä siihen liittyy. Mitä joulukaan olisi ilman lunta? Ja minä, joka olen niiiiin jouluihminen! *** This morning we finally got our first snow. Yippii! More of this! Yes, I know, I know! Now someone who loves summer and warm weather is annoyed about me writing...

Starbirds, perhaps -

What is your name? My name? I'm Minea Lintunen. And yes, I know what the surname means. 'Little bird.' Look at me! Do you see anything little about me? No, I don't. So you're not little. What are you, physically? I'm large. I'm huge. Oh, not fat, not that. I'm tall. I'm broad. I got muscles. The guy who said women can't grow enormous muscles by exercising was dead wrong. But your muscles are not that big. Oh yeah? Look at these damned biceps ! They're impressive. But I've seen bigger, you know...

The Freelancer's Fashionblog -

Hi! Here I (still) am. Sitting by my flower-and herb pots on the backdoor stairs. And it's sunny and almost warm -which is something of a thing this summer, the coldest of the decade they say- and I am wearing a selfmade dress I haven't in years. And I wish I could sit like this more often, just sit there, listen to the wind in the trees and look out on the field and road in front of me, and feel good about just doing just and only that. But I don't get to too often. The classic -  there's...

wide open -

Tänään olen metsästänyt imuriini pölypusseja sillä antaumuksella, että kun vihdoin niitä löysin (kahdeksas kauppa), olin purskahtaa itkuun. Puhtaasta helpotuksesta. Mietin myös moneenko kategoriaan ne miehet, joita deitti-palstoilla pyörii, minun kokemukseni mukaan asettuvat, mutta ajatus ei vielä ole valmis, joten siitä myöhemmin. Sen sijaan oheinen "tietoisku" (emmekö me naiset jo tienneetkin tämän??), joka ehkä selittää tästä maailmankaikkeudesta jotain: MEN PREFER...

Desperatehell -

I was about to do a post already last night, but then I heard about that dreadful terror attack in Finland by a friend and I ended up following the news and blogging felt suddenly less important thing to do. I was sitting on the bus while my friend sent a message that something has happened in Turku. At first I thought there is just some small stabbing going on, but quickly I realized what was going on. I know many people from Turku and I've visited there really often recently because my dad...

King's Cup -

Four days after my last post it happened; Olli kneeled in front of me, and asked THE question! All I could do was to nod like an idiot, and mumble "yea!". So, we're engaged now - and our wedding will be on 4.10.2008! I know it's still a long time away, but anyhow some preparations has already been made: the location for the party is reserved, an idea on the wedding dress is delegated on, hair- and make-up appointments are booked and best man's and maid's of honor are recruited. About the dress...

The Spirit of Abundance -

... is where I long to be ... I don't believe there is any other place that energizes me more than the seaside. Really. Wonderfully happy, positive, inspiring, uplifting, cleansing, delightful yesss-energy!   All images from here What's one of your main yesss-energy locations?

Ymmärryksen tällä puolen -

I returned to Finland on Friday evening. It took me less than 24 hours to relapse. It started with sugarfree chocolate I found in mum's cupboard. (What was I doing in mum's cupboard anyway?) I got excited - yippee sugarfree lactose-free chocolate, that's tailor-made for me! I started reading the ingredients list but by the time my eyes caught "milk fat" my cheeks were already full. Shit, I knew lactose-free doesn't mean milk-free but chose to ignore it for those few seconds it took me to rip...

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...

No ketä kiinnostaa? -

Politiikka ei toimi, diktaattori peliin. Kommentti irkissä by 18-vuotias nuori. Ensimmäinen ajatus oli kutakuinkin "taas näitä, jotka ei oo oikeesti ottanu selville miten voi vaikuttaa ja jättävät äänestämättä". No, ei se kyllä sitten ihan niin mennytkään. Katkeran ulkokuoren alta paljastui pidemmän keskustelun jälkeen noin 30 000 asukkaan kunnassa asuva nuori, jolta kyllä kiinnostusta löytyisi, mutta ei uskoa vaikuttamiseen. Ei varsinkaan, kun oman lukion oppilaskunnan...

Tuulilinjalla -

Viime kuisen, pienen purkauksen lisäksi Eyjafjallajökullin pääkraatterikin heräsi toimintaan. Viimeksi se on purkautunut vuonna 1821 ja silloin purkausta kesti vaihtelevasti yli vuoden. Sit ä edellisellä kerralla se purkautui vuonna 1612 ja sitä ennen 920. Kukaan ei siis osaa tarkemmin ennustaa, mitä tämä melko tuntematon tulivuori tekee ja millaisella paineella laava jatkaa ulostuloaan.  Itsen olen säästynyt vielä pahimmalta; tuuli puhaltaa tuhkaa Eurooppaan ja me olemme...

Napu's Post Cards -

Two offifical post cards from Germany: DE-19795 by Tanja living in Rottenburg and DE-21044 by Eve, thank you both! Peaceful post card mailed by Moonwillow, USA, Something written TAG. Thanks for Your nice words =) Cat aTAG from silvermel, USA, she wrote: "This little kitty needed a home, so I'm sending her to you!" Thank You and thanks for nice drawings, too =) Cat TAG (Jaatiina, Finland), cute yellow cat (my favourite colour) fishing, I think... The photo is taken by Tarja Heikkilä, she has...

Kkaaos -

Maailmassa riittää autettavia. Vastuu on niillä, joilla asiat ovat paremmin. (Ja kyllä, Suomessa asiat ovat paremmin, vaikka kukkaronnyörejä joutuisi taloustilanteen takia vähän kiristelemään.) "Emme halua rohkaista kerjäläisilmiötä. Siksi emme järjestä terveyspalveluita tai asuntoja. Kerjäämisen taustalla olevat ongelmat pitää ratkaista heidän kotimaissaan" , kertoo eräs asiantuntija . Mielestäni työkseen kerjäävien romanien asema Suomessa on ihan mielenkiintoinen...

Numenorian Chronicles -

The topic of this post is borrowed from the book by Gichin Funakoshi , father of Shotokan-school of karate, who is also considered to be a "father of modern karate". While I don't agree with that completely - I would rather put that label on Sokon Matsumura , who practically built the framework for the current popularity of karate and set the roots for Shorin-ryu -family of karate - I think that Funakoshi's ideological approach and work in Japan did make it possible for karate to spread...

The Freelancer's Fashionblog -

Today I heard the first seagulls - winter will be over soon! Here are, however, some pictures from last week when it still was very much winter. And here I am aswell! Slowly returning as the light slowly increases here on these latitudes. Like a Moomin troll I have hibernated from the blogosphere during the darkest months. (I always liked the Moomin winter book the best -well that one, and the one with the flood and the drifting heater - how he, against his nature, wakes up one winter and finds...

Ok, perhaps not exactly. But suitably for a time of growth, flowers, resurrection and Easter witches Asko and I did a photoseries for my act Happily Ever After, which is something of a reversed Sleeping Beauty ghost story. Photos by Asko Rantanen / Asko Jonathan Photography Concept and muah by me.

Trailing Space -

The RPM Challenge for this year is open. It is a challenge for bands and artists where the goal is to record an album in 28 days. An album is defined here as either 10 songs or 35 minutes of original material and the material must be recorded during February. The idea is to get musicians activated: No waiting for inspiration. Instead, taking action puts one in a position to get inspired. Artists will stumble across ideas they would have never come up with otherwise, and maybe only because they...

So last century * -

So some of you may have noticed I've been missing from the blogosphere for a while now... the reason being I was pre-occupied with completing my bachelor of arts degree. I am happy to report that I have finished and am now free to do as I please! As I mentioned in a previous post, for my Final Major Project (FMP) I chose to use The Collector by John Fowles as my text and focused on the connection between the study of entomology and serial killer behaviour made in the book. As interested as I am...




The Freelancer's Fashionblog -

Altough being stacked up in every store for the moment, it still seems I am in the minority of Finns actually rejoicing that mämmi season is here! Well at least if you ask my Facebook feed, that is. It is a short and sweet (and a bitter one, if we are being literal and going after that taste here) season, lasting only for a week or two around Easter. Once my parents did this thing though where they froze mämmi and had it for midsummer dessert. With  Christmas dishes for dinner. (It tasted...

Dainty Banquet -

So, I went to see An Cafe last wednesday. It was good I tell you. GOOD. It was so nice to see them live, and they graciously played Smile Ichiban Ii Onna as their final song, so I was very happy. Despite not knowing any of their new songs, it was a good gig. I haven't been able to find a torrent of their new album anywhere. I know, I'm shameless. But I'm a poor student and it's expensive to start odering CD's from Japan! Anyway. There was a rather notable majority of 10-15 yearolds in the...

FO: Clapotis Yarn: Artesano Hummingbird, 300g Needles: 4mm For pictures of me wearing it, see the project page In knitting this Clapotis I also realised something about what guides me in choosing projects. Although knitting is supposedly for my own entertainment only, I still find myself considering expectations and norms. We all fall for this sometimes -or I at least would like to think that I am not the only one who might borrow the latest prize winner from the library just because it's a...

Sutkautuksia -

..näin uskaltaudun jo näin helmikuussa väittämään, toki naisella on aina oikeus muuttaa mieltään.  :) Jos et halua uppoutua italialaiseen maaseutuun, maistella hedelmiä suoraan puusta, tuntea 1980-luvun kesää, vaikka itse ehkä olit tuolloin ujo, epävarma ja nuori (niin kuin minä) tai jos et halua rakastua elämään, tämä ei ole sinun elokuvasi. Call me by your name on elokuva elämään rakastumisesta,  ja ensirakastumisesta toiseen ihmiseen, sellaiseen, joka tuntuu luissa ja...

Antti Alanen: Film Diary -

Scener ur ett äktenskap Del 5: Analfabeterna . Liv Ullmann (Marianne) and Erland Josephson (Johan). Enligt Bergman var Ullmann och Josephssons insats "ovärderlig eftersom de aldrig lämnade ut Marianne och Johan, utan försvarade dem. På så sätt fick i många fall Livs och Erlands önskemål om replikernas och scenariets utformning avgörande betydelse för det slutliga resultatet. " According to Bergman the contribution of Ullmann and Josephson was "invaluable since they never abandoned...

Susannas Travels -

Ajattelin tehdä koosteen parhaiksi koetuista asioista matkoillani kuten parhaat kahvilat, kauneimmat maisemat, paras ruoka, sää jne. Aloitetaan paras kesäsää : tämän voiton vie Välimeren maat. Kesällä voi olla kuuma +40C Italiassa mutta sittenpähän tarkenee ainakin uida. Italian sää sopii minulle, helle ja kevyt tuulenvire. Italiassa on usein paljon puiden varjostamia kujia, joilla on heti hieman viileämpää kuin suorassa auringonpaisteessa ja antaisin myös siitä plussaa...

ajatusvirtaa -

I am a Scandinavian and we, unlike the Americans, do not read John Stuart Mill as part of our general education. At least that is the image I have, as an outsider, of American education, but do correct me if I'm wrong. " On Liberty " is in any case a famous and central work of American political thinking, and since I thus had never read the work, the other day I thought that now would be a time as good as any to finally take a look into it. I must confess that I haven't come far on it yet, but...

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine and hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. For more information, click here .  The book I am waiting for this week is... I Stop Somewhere  by TE Carter Ellie Frias disappeared long before she vanished. Tormented throughout middle school, Ellie begins her freshman year with a new look: she doesn't need to be popular; she just needs to blend in with the wallpaper. But when the unthinkable happens, Ellie finds herself...
