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...

Jussi Halla-aho has made the decision to make a move into politics, something he persisted earlier he would not do. However, in an announcement made on his website on the 20th of June, he declared that he would be running as an independent candidate for the True Finns in the Helsinki voting district. For those who are not acquainted with Mr. Halla-aho and his opinions should know that he is a fine writer with iron logic and a vicious sense of humour, the latter which he usually directs at the...

My first thoughts of what this journey to Vantaa, to Tulisuudelma (Kiss of Fire) event and spending a night in Sokos Hotel Vantaa were, that I would be a tourist visiting a culture I have no experience of and that I had pretty bad expectations. Still, it would be really interesting to see and feel […]

Why I am not a Liberal Note: I am using 'stereotypical' liberal opinions, which I reflect on here, and I'm well aware that these are by no means the opinions of all people who call themselves liberal. Here is simply a random collection of view points, which I've perceived to be fundamental to and dircetly connected to liberal thinking and which I disagree with from a meta-political and philosophical point of view. This is an absolutely biased analysis from an absolutely biased point of view...

Yesterday I found from an antiquarian bookshop a biography of Herbert Spencer written by Otto Gaupp in 1911 (the language used in this Finnish translation from German is touchingly old-fashioned). The book (which I'm still reading) raises Spencer as one of the greatest philosophers who has ever been alive. And for good reason, as it was actually him, not Darwin, who should be considered the father of evolutionism. At his time Spencer was widely respected as a versatile genius, but today his...

COUNTRY & WESTERINEN -

Why it was in the first place I started to write this blog in English? Dunno. At that moment it just became as naturally as the country music thing out of me. It was not, and it still is not that simple, trying to digest a whole culture and perform its treasures with a reasonable amount of credibility. Some might call the outcome blasphemy. Just might. To bring more perspective to this exploration I have invited the rest of the band to share their views here. This may take place in Finnish...

Finnish copyfighter Herkko Hietanen sez, "Finnish copyright law is in its last stretch in Parliament. It places considerable limits on fair use and right to import works. Citizens are writing to the MPs who are planning to take action to remove some of the most Draconian parts of the law. Members of Parliament are reportedly receiving 600 e-mails a day about copyright issues. The Minister of Culture is calling the worried citizens who sent the e-mail terrorists! It is reported that this is the...

Tässä teille pitämäni puhe Nykissä täkäläistä aikaa sunnuntaiaamuna. Puheen osalta voin sanoa, että siitä valtaosa osa on runoiltu lennolla Helsigistä JFK:lle, loput lauantai-iltana ja Suomen valtion viralliset tahot eivät ole sitä nähneet ennen sen pitämistä, joten vastuu virheistä ja latteuksista on jotakuinkin yksin minun.

Inspiraatioki löyty saman tien. Kejoki huus että "viddu!". Protest the Hero, tämä kaikkien livebändien äiti, isä ja pikkusisko, tulee tekemään kaksi korvaavaa keikkaa elokuun lopulla Suomeen.

Nyt se on sitten viimeistään todistettu. Patonginpurijat ovat napanneet kulttuurinsa ylivertaisuudella ( la rayonnement de la culture Francaise ) myös indie-electron kuninkuuden, seuraava kohde lienee koko maailmanvaltius. Ihan oikeasti. Kitsuné, Ed Banger jne. Mistä maasta iskeytyy tajuntaasi yhtä paljon jalat valtaavaa paukutusta? Ehkä Ameriikan Yhdysvalloista (propsit Obamalle btw), mutta laatu korvaa määrän ja toisin päin. Jos patonginpurijoihin luetaan vielä Belgialaiset niin...

According to the Mail , these revelations include: # That Blair appeared privately to "relish" sending British troops to war in Iraq as his "first blooding", while publicly...

Wow.. it has been a long time since I wrote here last time. Heh, it's a bit funny that I wrote earlier that I will write here maybe twice a month. Huh, that just ain't gonna work. I realized that I am living here on Pulau Penang just an ordinary life. Nothing very special is going to happen that often. So I decided to forget this blog for a while. But now I am back. Why? Probably because I felt like writing something up again. I just felt like gathering my memories here a little bit. The thing...

The Fulbright Orientation went rather well, a big thank you for the organizers. On the last day we heard an excellent lecture from Prof. Gary Weaver (American University) on American cultures, experiencing cultural shock and getting over it. By the time, however, most of us Fulbrighters representing all continents were already experienced cultural shockees. For most of us the first big shock was the driving culture as represented by our various cabbies: others felt driving in New York...

Sometimes I've thought about how Korea came into my life and why I feel so strongly about this spesific country. My story with Korea dates back to the beginning of the 1990s, when I was checking the pen pal ads from Finnish text TV at home. Young people from Korea were looking for pen pals around the world to practice English through a pen pal club. I took the address and wrote a letter stating that I was interested in writing with someone. I didn't know anything about the country at that time...

Call it frogs porn, but there's also worms, eels, octopi and goldfish in Japan's slimiest sex Blame Hokusai. In 1820, the master Japanese woodcut artist and godfather of manga produced a print entitled The Dream Of The Fisherman's Wife. It depicts a fisherwoman, stripped naked and entwined in the tentacles of a large bug-eyed octopus. Its distended head is fixed between her legs, sucking on her fleshy mound. Another smaller octopus at her head probes the inside of her mouth. But the fisherman's...

Pelaamme siis "vanhaa" kunnon Vampirea, jonka kaupunkikonseptin Mika on muokannut mieleisekseen. Cutin alla ovat hahmoprofiilit ja kaupungin/tilanteen kuvaus englanniksi, olen lisännyt hieman olennaista infoa hahmoista kunkin kohdalle, jos olen kokenut sen tarpeelliseksi.

So, about the weekend I told you about in the previous post. I went to the FFfin-meeting and because the weather was pretty nice, warm but bit cloudy and windy, we went to beach. We had pretty fun there. AND after many many many years, I went to swim!!! It was nice :) We were there for few hours and then I headed home and others headed to...

Only 3 weeks to go before I gotta go back to school. And what I have done during summer break? Nothing! I've just been. I was supposed to start making thesis, but.. Oh well, I still have 1,5 years before it's gotta be ready. And actually we haven't even talked about thesis at school. But because my thesis will be pretty large, I could have started to gather the information for it. And for those who doesn't know what the subject of my thesis will be, it's Irish Culture . I have also seen my...

As some of you might know I'm part of a DJ crew called Boom Shakalaka here in Helsinki, Finland. This summer is gonna be big for us as things are moving forward on many fronts. When we do remixes we've always searched samples from african, brazilian and other latin american sources trying to dig deep into other cultures. But then we started wondering why don't we ever dig to our own roots and own musical culture. And as a result we started experiementing with old finnish folk and accordeon...

"In Bhutan, chilli is not a spice. It is a vegetable." These were some of the wise words I was told during the flash introduction to culture, security and practical issues in Bhutan by the UN security officer during my first week. Since then, I have been asked the question "how are you coping with the food here?" in a worried tone, as not everyone is as fond of chillies in every single dish as the Bhutanese are. Selection of Bhutanese dishes at the Folk Heritage Museum restaurant. Chilli sauce...

No niin. Välittömästi kun olin julkaissut edellisen tekstini huomasin, että en pääse lukemaan täällä blogiani. Blogspotin blogit kun kuuluvat täällä kiellettyihin sivuihin. Siksi en ole kirjoittanut lisää ennen kuin nyt, sillä mietin, mitä ihmettä teen blogilla, jota en itse voi lukea? Nyt asia on kuitenkin kunnossa. Se oli lopulta pikku juttu, kunhan vain sain ensin selville, että asialle voi ylipäänsä tehdä jotain. Mutta muiden blogeja en tietenkään pääse lukemaan...

Lomaosaamattomuus on minua. Viime talviloman sairastin flunssaa ulkomaanmatkan ajan, kesällä kärsin jatkuvasta olkapäätulehduksesta ja reisilihaksen revähdyksestä pesäpallon takia, ja joululoma tuntuu etenevän kohti loppuaan jatkuvan päänsäryn ja painajaisunien kourissa. Liekö asialla yhteyttä juuri kesken olevaan kirjaan Virginia Woolf: A Writer's Diary , mutta olen nähnyt toistuvasti unta, jossa minusta kasvaa mustia koiperhosia. Herään täsmälleen sillä hetkellä, kun...

We have a visitor. His name is Kassu and the happy owner of him is Tuula, who's living in the building next to us. She went to help her daughter with moving, so we eagerly welcomed Kassu to stay a couple of days with us. He's already taken over this place by sleeping in every corner of this flat! He also came to wake me up at 5am, 6am, 7am and finally at 8am I woke and gave up. He also escaped once from the balcony, but he's a shy boy and was waiting for us to carry him inside just outside the...
