Freodom -

While War of the Ring is a fantastically good game, its expansions can also be fantastically hard to get hold of. Their rarity means that when I was lucky enough to see a copy of Warriors of Middle-earth at our friendly local game store, I pretty much bought it immediately. Warriors adds six factions to the game, effectively taking event cards from the base game, like ents, and expanding them into full factions with figures on the board, which the players can activate and mobilize for the war...

I did a sort of stress-relieving project over the new year where I finished Bethesda games I hadn't gotten around to finishing, i.e. Skyrim, Fallout 4 and - finally! - Morrowind. With that out of the way, my next gaming project had to be another shot at Crusader Kings 2. With so many new DLCs and patches out, I figured I needed to get reacquainted with how it all works, especially now that Monks and Mystics promises to make playing in Catholic western Europe a little more interesting. I'm...

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...

THAI DEMOCRACY -

Surprisingly once again, it is actually saturday. In Thailand it has been The drinking day for us. We usually go out on saturday evenings, rather than friday, because in Thailand saturday is a work/school day for a big majority of people. It would actually be for us too, but we chose not to take any courses on saturday, for some obvious reasons of course. There might not be so much people out partying on fridays than saturdays so we keep ourselves to saturday. Sometimes both days, but mainly...

Charlie's Design Diary -

Have you made your list, and have you checked it twice? Good, then you should already know who's been naughty or nice. Here's my list of a few awesome finds for the boys and girls in my life. I hope you like them as much I do. All I want for Christmas this year is the B ubble necklace and ring set designed by Tiina Arkko from Oz Jewel in Helsinki. The Bubble set is stunningly beautiful. It looks like one solid piece but in fact they are all small individual pieces of silver (or gold). When you...

The little things -

Not this kind of nude, silly! Lately I have spent not one visit, but many visits to Sephora and other beauty emporiums trying to find the perfect nude.  Does anyone else out there notice how many ugly, deeply unflattering nude lipsticks there are?  It's particularly confounding since you see almost every model and actress in every ad wearing the same pinkish nude lip but you try to find that color and it DOES NOT EXIST.  Is this a conspiracy?  Where are all those women getting their perfect...

It's difficult not to have high expectations when you know that David Hawksworth is the owner of this fairly new restaurant.  I had hoped that the mixed reviews were just the result of the operation needing a little "working-out-the-kinks" time.  I figured there could also have been some unreasonable expectations involved.  I figured the negative reviews would act as alarm calls, and the restaurant would scurry about to fix the offending issues. Well, I think it needs more love.  Here are...

The Jumalauta Food Review -

A few days ago I was in Stockholm to attend Apple's Leopard Tech Talk. The talk was very interesting but unfortunately it is under NDA so I can't really tell you anything about the conference. But here's a small(?) reportage about the most important part of the trip: food. A proper trip to Stockholm begins always with an early and rich breakfast buffet on the ferry. The buffet was served at 5:30 a.m but I did not manage to get there before 6:00 a.m so I had about one hour to enjoy the servings...

Tyyliä elämään -

A couple of years back I was lucky enough to get a job that required me to leave home and be at the local coach stop by 5:30 am every morning. 5:30 in the morning when nobody in their right mind is awake and the streets are mostly empty. Except for the long line of migrant workers from Poland queuing up for the same early morning coach as me. Mostly women with the odd man and mostly young women in their early twenties. Interestingly I never ever saw a single English woman among them, I guess...

Terkkuja tv'n äärestä! Minut tuntevat saattavat tietää, että aikaa katsoa telkkaria ei kamalasti arkipäivissä ole. Niin upeita kuin useat sarjat ja elokuvat ovatkin, en jaksa arkea jos en liiku ja nuku tarpeeksi. Ja jos töiden ja epämääräisen kodinhoidon jälkeen liikun, ei energiaa tai aikaa enää riitä kamalasti muuhun. Such a tragedy. On kuitenkin muutamia sarjoja, joita seuraan orjallisesti (ja siinä sivussa katson melko paljon dokkareita). Yksi sarjoista on myös yksi...

THAI DEMOCRACY -

So week has passed without any posts. Why? Nothing to post. We haven't done anything. Saturday we went out and had a blast, then hangover. Then week went with food poisoning and happy stuff like that. Because of that, I've played insane amounts of poker, more than 10.000 hands this week alone. Too bad the games haven't been going too well, but still winning luckily. I've had one of the most insane shitty runs of poker I've had so far this week, and that has caused me to play bad also. But...

I'm not much of a tourist when it comes to traveling and I prefer doing things in my own pace and enjoying regular things like hanging out with friends, having lunch/dinner at a restaurant, shopping, partying, you name it, which is pretty much what I would do in any location. Which makes me wonder why I'm even writing a post called " what to see in Tokyo " when I literally have no suggestions for you to give :D Well, in the end, this post is more like what I saw, which places I visited and...

Neulova lehmä -

Ilmarisen emäntä ja karhuksi muuttunut lehmä (Björn Landströmin kuvittama Kalevala 1985) Mieleni minun tekevi, aivoni ajattelevi, ruvetakseni rustaamahan, käyäkseni koukkuamahan. Villat vasussa vartovat, keräset keikuttelevat, koukulleni kampeavat peittoseksi pelmahtavat!* Kalevala CAL kolahti. Pakko osallistua.

Today I was playing with a picture I shot at Sagrada Familia a couple of weeks ago. (Hey, I do shoot other buildings, too... Occasionally!) I think the original was OK; all it needed was two adjustment layers: Levels and Contrast . However, I started zooming the picture in, to see the details better (Sagrada Familia is full of interesting details!), and I liked the statue of Christ; the expression on his face, the way his wrists are crossed... And I thought this detail would deserve a little...

Ever since my change of job last summer and the fact that the new work resides physically quite far away has naturally changed my commuting routines completely; No more bus or train rides to the city center and back, usually with magazines and books to read and music and podcasts in my ears. No more handy time off both work and home for personal notes in journal, or emails. Now it has been roughly one hour car trip one way every day, only occasionally broken with days on the train. As the...

Imagine that you could hire a worker for 25 euros a month, provided that you pay housing and a few meals. What consequences would it have? If it's cheap, buy more than you need Finnish mentality is that when you are at work, you should be doing some task which fulfills the goals of the organization (this includes being on watch for orders). If you're not, then the work is not well organized or you're lazy. But if work is cheap, why bother about efficiency. Downtime and idleness are ok. For...

kuva. Blogissani on ollut liian vähän juttua majoituksista, joten tähän tulee nyt muutos. Kumpaan majoittuisit mieluummin hostelli tai leirintäalue? minä vastaisin että leirintäalue esim. mökillä. Syynä on se että sellaisessa en ole vielä ollut ja esim. Italiassa leirintäalueiden taloihin kuuluu usein keittiö ja suihku. Hostelleissa olen ollut tähän mennessä kaksi kertaa tietämättäni ja petyin niihin. Miksi? syynä oli se että ekalla kerralla hostellissa olin Roomassa ja...

Tässä nyt sitten suurin osa niitä näperryksiä, jotka piti esitellä jo aikaa sitten, mutta kameraongelmien takia en voinut. Rannikkaat bambupuuvillasta. Lanka on todella mukavaa, mutta olisi mukavaa, jos värit olisivat olleet kerässä vähän tasaisemmin jakautuneena. Käytin Ravelrystä löytämääni ohjetta nimeltä Cabled Colourscape -rannikkaat. Mukava ohje, uskoisin muuttaneeni jotain, mutta en enää muista mitä. -------------- Now here's the bulk of what I wanted to show, but...

my life and other lies -

Today, I talk about marriage. Not the ok-with-everyone straight people marriage, but the hotly contested realm of "gay marriage". First of all, it's all marriage- two guys, two gals, one of each- doesn't matter. So, I'm officially abandoning the term "gay marriage" for the term "the right for consenting adults to marry." It may be longer, but it's not the size that matters- what's important is what you do with it. And now, a little something I stumbled upon today: "I believe everyone deserves...

I've always liked classic men's shoes. They're often so stylish and simple. They can really make such an improvement in the whole outfit - as can any good shoe, but the simplicity makes mens' shoes different. Switch your trainers for a simple pair of oxfords and don't you look fancy! Despite having envied men for their shoes, I can't really picture myself wearing those -> No, they aren't men's. Probably inspired by all the menswear-inspired clothes on the catwalk, Urban Outfitters have come up...

Kulttuuri kukoistaa -

Hanna Hauru on vahvasanainen, tunteita ravisteleva kirjoittaja ja tiiviin ilmaisun taitaja. Paperinarujumala  on hieno. Niukan ja äärimmilleen hiotun tekstin ystävänä luin innoissani myös Jääkannen: myös se on Haurun tapaan sivuiltaan ohut, mutta täysi ja painava. Painava sanoista, tapahtumista ja tunteista. Mutta Jääkansi ei silti tehonnut täysillä. Asetelma, pienen kylän sodanjälkeinen perhe ja tupa, on tuttu. Jatko ei tuonut paljon uutta, paitsi painajaista. Tyttö eli...
