This will be the last post of Wave Gotik Treffen and nearly a month has gone since the whole event. I've been slow like a snail, but sometimes duties win and during this week I've been quite exhausted after the work so blogging has not been the priority one. (I have spent my spare time mostly by watching cat videos and now I have a huge wish to have Ragdoll. I realized how lovely they can be by a nature. Their look is not perfectly to my taste, but their nature surely is. Black Ragdoll would be...

Fennis mira feritas, foeda paupertas: non arma, non equi, non penates; victui herba, vestitui pelles, cubile humus: solae in sagittis spes, quas inopia ferri ossibus asperant. - Tacitus, Germania, XLVI Emperor Éomer I (1056-59) inherited both the Mercian empire and the crusade in Finland. With his son, Éomer Éomersson (I did not pick that name), coming of age on his succession, we now have three consecutive generations of crusaders against the Finnish pagans. I was all set to write up our...

TOURNIQUET Tourniquet on vuonna 1989 Kaliforniassa aloittanut thrash/heavy metal bändi. Tämä oli aikoinaan todella suuri nimi kristillisen metallin parissa.

Kokoonpano oli tällöin laulu Guy Ritter, kitara Gary Lenaire ja rummut Ted Kirkpatrick. Stop The Bleeding on hyvä esikoislevy siinä on...

Picture this with your mind's eye: a former hero limps through the long battle, is losing it completely. At the very last minute, it's the cavalry! Out of the blue they ride in and help the hero crush all and every opponent, totally. In a way not seen before. A legend has born. I found myself going over this tale again this morning when commuting to work. On the morning of the stage 19 of Giro d' Italia 2018 every sensible tifosi  predicted that the battle between the overall leaders was to...

Santorini was warm. we stayed on both sides of the island to get a town and beach experience both. the visually stunning caldera was worth seeing but the quiet and cozy beach was a nice and much needed balance. with London/Finland prices, i'm not sure i would go again, as greece has so many nice cozy beach villages that are more affordable, but i am happy i've gone once. our 2nd hotel (Smaragdi). the pool was for doctor, i knew i would not go in there... too chilly. hence, i got a room that...

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...

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. You are also a translator; could you tell the role of your previous translations (if any) in the process of creating your poems? 3. Could you name some of the...

Päivi & Santeri - Matkalla elämässä ja maailmalla. -

--> Päivi had seen so many beautiful pictures of Beirut that her expectations were high — yet, strangely enough, she was not disappointed. Beirut stands apart from other world capitals in many ways. It is an exciting mix of different cultures: French and Arab, Christian and Muslim, settled and transitory. It has the reputation of being dangerous and yet we haven't felt so safe in many other big cities. You can walk around at any time of the day without the fear of being mugged or harassed...

Olin kaksi viikkoa sitten Helsingissä KauhuConissa kunniavieraana. Olin todella otettu, kun minut paikalle kutsuttiin, vaikka en ehtinytkään coniin kuin sunnuntaina. Tilaisuus oli mukava ja pienimuotoinen, ja liityin myös Lovecraft-seuran jäseneksi. Pidin kunniavierasesitelmän otsikolla "Mies joka loi antologiabuumin". Otsikon suurellisuudessa on lievää itseironiaa, mutta asia itsessään on nähdäkseni tosi: kukaan ei ollut tehnyt yli kymmeneen vuoteen antologioita eivätkä ne...

And again it's Sunday and a new week is waiting for us ahead. The day flashed quickly. I started sewing a new dress in the morning and a few hours later it was already done. This is rare, usually I don't get anything ready during one day and now I stitched it without stops. Well one new frock for the summer is indeed welcome.  Today I was dressed in this lovely chiffon dress which I found in the sale track last autumn. The dress has its perfect shape and I especially like the collar system and...

Lately I've let the foundations and powders (I usually use mineral powder foundation for everyday use) rest in my drawer and used only this - Lumene's Instant Glow Beauty Serum. I had a friend praise it for magic a while back and tried a sample in the shop but didn't really get what it was about. But when I got a small bottle as part of a Christmas gift and actally tried it on my face instead of at the palm of my hand I realised it really does something . Not sure what it that is, but it works...

Last time, I took Mercia from a petty kingdom to an empire spanning the British Isles and including the Kingdom of Jerusalem. The year is only 971, so there's still a lot of time left. The one continuing objectice I have is improving the status of women ; it'd be pretty cool to get absolute cognatic succession. Other than that, though, my only major goal is to survive to the end, so I'm going to see what life throws at us. We begin in the reign of Emperor Gedalbert the Cruel (971-978) , first...

Hello! In between of projects I managed to finish my Devastator Squad for my own Space Marine chapter... Angels of Hellfire is a Dark Angels successor chapter, and as I was reading the DA-codex, I spotted out that the Devastator Squad now has an Armorium Cherub. Meaning that once per game one of the models may shoot twice in a round, as the Cherub realoads that models weapon. Cool, and must have... But I did'nt have a suitable model for the purpose, so I had to kitbash one together... And...
