London: Picador, 1994. 220 p. It is not surprising that memoirs of journalists are page-turners and easy to like.

Kirja-asiaa! Maria Veitola - Veitola Yksi viime vuoden lukemiston huipuista oli Maria Veitolan omaelämäkerta. Jo kirjan rakennekin on ainutlaatuinen, aivan kuten kohdekin - se on koottu useisiin eri lehtiin useiden vuosien aikana kirjoitetuista kolumneista. Välissä on Veitolan nykyhetken minän kommentteja omiin teksteihinsä. Miten ajatukset ovat muuttuneet vuosien varsilla? Ovatko vuodet tuoneet kokemusta, onko virheistä opittu, mitkä haamut kulkevat mukana edelleen? Vastoin odotuksiani...

Toivon Vasarat -

The Paper Wars started half a year ago when prof. Tapio Vapaasalo terror struck my WTC telling there's this cool school in Wanganui I should apply to. I looked up the counter-strike options and ended up doing my application to WSD that according to my sources had masses of weapon-destructive graphic design. As for that arch-designer, Guan Yeoh Hong , I'd smokem out of his cave. There was a culmination in mid-June when I found out I have two weeks before launching my airplane attack. That went...

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.

My Dear Hard Drive -

The Finnish musical landscape, when right in the middle of it, can be depressing, particularly in the 80’s. By the end of the 90’s, things got SIGNIFICANTLY better, but before that happened, it was quite a challenge. When I moved to Australia and gained some perspective and, more to the point, got to a SAFE […]

I hate Christmas. Not because it is commercial, invented by card companies, nor for the forced happygo-lucky athmosphere. Me and Christmas have been good friends in the past, but now I have good reasons for disliking it. 1. The music For six years, I have been working in stores that play Christmas music. I know the tunes, I know the melodies, and all the lyrics in Finnish and in English. The repetition of the songs is not what annoyes me though. It is the remakes, the new versions of the old...

The source of happiness and peace is often found between trees and water, the two archetypal Finnish elements. However, sometimes trees on both sides and water underneath just don't do it, but the solution might be found where there is no trees at all.For a Finn, the Central Park of New York is really an oasis in the middle of busy city life and noise. It seems, however, to find the true peace

STUFF ON MY MIND -

There is a story about someone's  PhD reseach about 7-13-year old Finnish children and studying English in today's Helsingin sanomat . The surveyed children don't consider the English they learn when gaming "proper English" , and don't see much relevance for lerning to write English (this is actually expressed rather vaguely in the article; it's possible that I misunderstood something). "Real English" is learned at school from books, the children think.  I don't remember if I had that kind...

RealWorld . . . can it be? -

There is a rather vivid political discussion going on in Finland. The right wing politicians want finally to say aloud, what every Finn has always known, that Russia is Finland's major security issue. - Not 'threat', mind you, but 'issue'. We have a long history of Russian invasions, from the dawn of our recorded history: Novgorodians, Muscovites, Russians, Soviets, you name it. They all have made attacks to Finland, and some of them have even managed to occupy Finland. - Just read your history...

I'm getting more and more scared of Russia. The letter by the poisoned spy's friend put into words the irrational fear I've had around all this crap . Speculation that the terrorist strikes that started the Chechnyan wars were staged by FSB, sounds a lot like a conspiracy theory. But I get a very bad feeling about this particular incident. My personal stress accumulation at the moment and the letter made me think, if I would be safer living just a bit further away from Russia. I don't think I...
