Planet Procrastination -

Remember, I read this piece by Haruki Murakami in the New Yorker. He is one of my favourite writers, and also a jazz-aficionado and a long distance runner. He runs every day. He probably writes every day. Don't know how much he jazzes every day, but that's beside the point.I said I wanted to run and write every day, because that'd help me write my thesis and also get me fit. Then life happened

Happy Training for Masochist's Dream -

23.5 -biking 18 K in the morning and 18 K in the afternoon, about 45-50 minutes per time. Biking is a new innovation to end pollution and climate heating. It is also a handy way to get to the work place. Tomorrow I've to bike all the way, some 35 kilometres, because my beautiful classic car got a severe flu (mysterious problems with battery that empty itself). Today I biked only half of the entire journey. 22.5 -implementation of biking to the training program and also to the everyday life...

Vera's log -

Just tried to make a small Android demo app using ReactNative. The really hard part was JavaScript, but I am certainly not going give out any advice on that. The next hardest part was running the damn thing on a Android device. In principle their "hello world" app should be easy to run, just attach a device and run: react-native init HelloFuckingWorld cd HelloFuckingWorld react-native run-android Instead of your "hello world" you get a nasty red screen telling you that the app cannot connect to...

It's About Me, Amoena -

I ran a half marathon yesterday. I felt that maybe I should blog something about it, since most people consider it a quite big deal. I, on the other hand, have really mixed feelings now when I have actually finished it. It was just so much easier than I expected. I expected it to be kind of a struggle but in the reality it was just a really long run. I wasn't considerably different than my regular 10km runs. I signed up in February. I wanted to sign up as early as possible so I wouldn't chicken...

A journey to a healthier life. -

I've never, ever, ever have liked running. Never. In fact, I even remember my gym class teacher once telling me that I couldn't run. Like that was a hard fact that couldn't be changed. At least after then, I've never even tried jogging. This autumn I've taken a project to start living at least a little bit healthier. So, as a part of my project, I went walking (speed-walking, you might say) around two weeks ago, for the first time in an extremely long time. I didn't go alone, no, I had my iPod...

Ilmoittauduin Tampereen puolimaratonille, joka järjestetään 9.9. Juoksin viime viikon keskiviikkona 23 kilometriä, ja viikonloppuna noin 5 kilometriä. Tänään aion käydä lyhyellä kilpavauhtia hieman nopeammalla lenkillä ja perjantaina hyvin kevyellä ja lyhyellä "valmistelevalla" lenkillä. Startti on lauantaina vasta kello 15. Koetan nyt pitää lähinnä huolen lihashuollosta ja nivelistä; varsinaista venyttelyä en harrasta nyt, sillä se vie puhdin juoksusta, mutta pieniä...

Apertoire -

It was -24 C in Finland during my xmas holiday there but it did not prevent me from photographing. Cold weather like that just requires some preparations. The most important one for your gear is to prevent condensation. Condensation happens when cold camera is brought indoors. Fog appears on lens surfaces etc and that moist can damage your camera internals as well. Preventing condensation is simple. You need put a camera inside a plastic bag before entering indoors. Wrapping camera inside a bag...

Pikitietä pitkin -

Satu herää Hammaslahdella, Joensuun vieressä. Kello on yksitoista aamulla ja Sadulla on ollut kylmä yö. Hän on nukkunut pelkässä makuupussissa paljaalla maalla. Auringonpaiste ja lintujen laulu ovat tunkeutuneet kauniina hänen ohueen uneensa. Nyt aurinko on jo korkealla ja on lämmittänyt yön tärissyttä matkaajaa. Satu aukaisee makuupussin vetoketjun, että jo kuumuudeksi kehittynyt lämpö pääsee tasaantumaan. Hän makaa selällään ja katselee sinistä taivasta. Tässä mä...

Hetki on vierähtänyt viimeisimmästä rutinasta ja taas on ehtinyt tapahtua vaikka vallan mitä. Takana on jälleen toinen toistaan parempia kesämuistoja ja uskon, että niitä ehtii löytyä vielä myös edestäpäin. Muuton vaihe ja läksiäisbileet Muuttohommat ovat edenneet hurjan hyvin ja lähes kaikki muuttoa edeltävät toimenpiteet on tehty. Jouduin irtisanomaan Saunalahden nettiliittymäni, sillä ko. lafka ei tarjoa yhteyksiä Poriin. Sen sijaan Soneralla oli harvinaisen makea...

Ineksen Päiväkirja - Suodatettua totuutta ja kaunisteltuja val -

And it all comes down to this. The vampire team decides on taking Chiara's horrified advice of using their planned retreat tactic for moving forward, so Hans and Dom use potence and celerity to carry the others on their shoulders, running from the possible tentacly threat deeper into the sewer as fast as they can. Their chosen path leads to another hole in the wall after a few kilometers, behind which is a small basement room with eight empty coffins. Looks like Snow white and the Seven Dwarves...

Walkabout happened exactly a year ago (well, 3 days plus) so now's a good time to revisit the event. I wrote about this purely awesome thing (before it happened) here  http://tarotpuu.livejournal.com/58891.html  and the even more awesome group responsible for this delight can be found here  http://www.nic.fi/~hoyhen/  (Teatteri Naamio ja Höyhen). I wrote about my experience and it became an article, which was recently published in the Tarosophist International , a quarterly...

Nyt on pakko sanoa, ettei mulle äkkiseltään tule mieleen montakaan elokuvaa, jotka olisivat vaikuttaneet muhun yhtä vahvasti kuin Sean Pennin ohjaama, tositapahtumiin perustuva Into the Wild . Kannattaa katsoa, en uskalla lähteä kuvailemaan sitä sen tarkemmin, sillä pelkäänpä, etten ikinä voisi tehdä oikeutta tälle mahtavalle elokuvalle. Olen ihan myyty. Kuvat

The Classic Short Boot from UGG Australia is a rugged, handsome boot with an eight-inch shaft length. Like all UGG Boots, it is made of genuine Grade A sheepskin with the fleece turned inward to take advantage of its natural thermal properties. This boot has the typical UGG style with its dome-shaped toe and prominent stitching. Of course, the UGG boots label is displayed on the heel. The outsole is made of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), a durable plastic that can take considerable stress...

Imevä Pingviini -

Miltä tuntuu silloin kun linux alkaa vituttamaan, äsken tuli taas niin kova vitutus, että päätin taas kerran unohtaa koko paskan. Samalla kun vitutus alkoi tajusin miten sen voisi selittää sellaiselle ihmiselle joka ei ole linuxia asentanut. Normaalisti kun tietokone ei toimi löytyy helpistä tai netistä hyvät tai ainakin jonkinlaiset ohjeet. Tätä voitaisiin verrata vaikkapa siihen, että olet eksynyt vieraassa kaupungissa ja kysyt tietä joltain joka puhuu sujuvaa suomea ja neuvoo...

Christmas, the most commercial religious holiday of all is approaching. One might think that the materialistic, carnevalistic celebration of religious holidays would not have reached Bhutan yet – wrong. The two tsechu s, religious festivals I have testified in Thimphu, the capital and in Bumthang, Central Bhutan have had a vast selection of attractions outside the official programme of sacred dances ( cham ): gambling, drinking, dancing girls...you know, the usual things you would associate...

For the last few days, I think my most frequently visited page was Google maps (to plan my euro trip)... oh how easy it is now-a-days to plan a trip! Other than making a trip plan, probably everyone has tried to zoom on the roof of their house, or walked around the street using street view. That's fun for a while. Anyways, while the google car is silently driving by your window, capturing of interesting moments are inevitable. Kids falling... running box...non-stop fun :D source: streetviewfun...

Such a rare treat to spend a weekend in Sydney nowadays. Deviant and I spend all our time running up and down the coast and never really get to enjoy the city life anymore.Well, this long weekend was a refreshing change.We went to see a joined album launch gig by The Snowdroppers and Nici Blue Eyes on Saturday. And I have to say, it was one of the most enjoyable gig nights out I've ever

I spent the entire last weekend playing this game. If it had a less interesting story, I probably would have given up in the boss fight of episode 3, where I got stuck the first time, but I really wanted to see more. The following contains spoilers. I decided I needed to buy some time, so I searched for a game guide listing all the locations of the SAT Patches. Then I started a new game and made sure I picked up every one of them in the first three episodes. This time, when I got to the Zorn, I...

Daily Loaf -

Almost, anyway... The Episcopal House of Deputies elected Canon Gene Robinson as bishop of New Hampshire. His appointment to the post by the House of Bishops, his future peers, was to be a rubber-stamp routine operation. Robinson would have then become the first openly homosexual person to hold such a high position in one of the major Christian churches - after Canon Jeffrey John turned down his own appointment as the Bishop of Reading. While there is, if not evidence, then at least certainly...

Ajattelin seurata pelinjohtajamme Mikan ( darth_rattus  ) esimerkkiä ja kirjoittaa entryjä tuoreesta ropestamme, mikäli jotakuta kiinnostaa lukea kuvauksia. 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. Mahdollisimman pian postaan oman kirjoitelmani eilisestä ja...

I was playing there in April 2009 and it has been one of my top5 gigs ever. But this time it's a very special end party with DJ...

So we must plough on to discover the truth. Another day's rest is behind the hopes of the Camarilla, and they decide to make an undercover appearance at the Night Club Crux to poke around. C is lucky enough to land another 1600's ensemble, and being a smart Malkavian, goes for a nun's habit, which fits in great at a contemporary Goth club. At this point there had been some speculations among the five, that one of the piles of ash found at the Prince's haven were far too grainy to have come from...

Wild joys and wilder sins -

I’m on a study break right now. A month of independent studying at home before the final exams. I guess it’s relaxing in a way, not having to worry about school stuff or work. On the other hand though, I’m still stressed as hell because I’m not studying enough. Every day is a struggle as I try to force myself to open the books and read and do math and make notes. I set a goal of 5 hours per day but I’ve already fallen behind. Today, I studied for about 2-3 hours. WHERE THE HELL IS MY...

on my way to nyc last november, i realized a long awaited dream of mine. visiting iceland had been on the list of to-dos for years, and the opportunity presented itself almost accidentally. friends were heading over to airwaves festival in reykjavik and offered their couch for me to crash on on my way. the layover on icelandair costs no extra, so well, why the hell not. the festival packs the city with music fans from all over the world, and therefore my experience probably wasn't the most...

The sun shines in through the window, but still there is already a coolish breeze of autumn in the air. And no wonder, the calender shows it's already September! Autumn for me is always a time for something new; new work-related projects, new hobbies, fresh thoughts. After a relaxing summer you feel energetic and keen to take up lots of new ideas and start scheduling your calender with all kind of exciting events. I guess for some people their psychological calender has its reset-button at New...

But now I have some. First, I'm in Jordan. Not for fieldwork this time - truth to be told I am not yet in any shape for that - but for delving in institute libraries and getting a good kick-start for finishing my dissertation. It seems to be working, too: I have only been here in ACOR for a day, and I've got more work done than I have for several months (not withstanding a congress presentation and an article on which I worked for most of August).  Second, I have an update on the dissertation...

Arrests. Threats. Raided offices and confiscated computers. A closed court case with activities surrounding it strongly implying there is no way the accused will be treated fairly. The police and the authorities not respecting the rule of law. And all this has to do with Chechnya again, though surprisingly not in Russia but in the European Union. The following is written for the European Court by the Lithuanian Human Rights workers. Best of luck to you and your case! As for the kids in the...
