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...

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

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...

Verikuu ehti mennä jo, mutta sitä muistellessa Ä tarjoilee soolonautinnon: Running Duck Chenin Blanc 2018 hanapakkaus (puulaakin tuotenumero 598588). Hinta on 21,99 euroa ja tilavuus kaksi (2) litraa. Läikehtikö viini vai kaiho? Ä: Yksinänsä kaihoaa, ja täysikuuta odottaa. "Sammuu rusko illan, pimeytyy jo maa. Joen poikki sillan hämy rakentaa.

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

So we got at it again last weekend. The big break was due to the three song recorded last time being mixed ready for promotional/distributional use. I already waved them around at Popkomm a little bit, so hopefully someone will catch the wave that's going to hit their shores in 2009. We got up an going 6.30 in the morning on saturday. A time that's not very helpfull for the success of the weekend... Arriving at 9.30, with a car full of tired rock-personel, we got Aki to work. Drum recordings...

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...

Minitarinoita -

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...

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...

Wow, what a massive party weekend! Today it's the the last ever Rumble at Inkonst in Malmö. The Rumble is somewhat of a club institution in Scandinavia, running for almost five years with guests like Diplo , Buraka Som Sistema , David Rodigan , Bode do Role , Sinden , Simian Mobile Disco , DJ Funk , Crookers , A-Trak , Scottie B , Rusko , Skream and so many more . 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...

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

Feel Valencia -

I took a small vacation and flew back home to Finland. When I arrived to the airport it was dark and cold, definitely not anything like in Spain. But my girlfriend was waiting for me and I felt really good being back again. The weather was already getting warmer there and we got many sunny days. One friend had a two months old baby girl and the other kid had grown up and was running around and shouting weird words. Seemed like anywhere we went there were small babies to see. Not much had...

'Cause your life is a show -

This morning it took me a whole hour to get dressed. It usually does, but usually it's 75% dozing off in my bra; today I spent the whole time quite actively running around crying after items I don't own. jumper from mum, studded belt from brother; skirt & tights from H&M. My wardrobe isn't big in any case, but my winter gear is limited to a collection of two thick baggy jumpers, both of which I'm sick of by now, so today I dived into my mother's closet and found... another baggy jumper...

It's a kaisaful life -

I must say that living in a "proper" flat is rather nice... There are no ugly, moldy, dusty oh-but-so-valuable sofas everywhere, no weird stuff that the ex-roommate left behind, no wiggly bugs with mustachio running around the bathroom floor when you enter it... BUT there are also no interesting memorabilia from the past parties decorating the rooms, no more girls nights under the stars, no olde grande piano, only one balcony and only one (albeit phaantastic) roommate.. Someone once wondered...

This evening the running didn't feel good at all, but I really had to struggle to get one foot in front of the other, once I started running. Walking before that was ok. Fortunately, Faithless kept me going. Also I was happy to notice that I managed to improve the running bit with 300 metres. I don't think the progress is going to keep up this way, but of course it makes you more motivated to exercise when you see quick results like this :D Moreover, even though the mornings have been kind of...

My apologies for not updating for a while. I've been swamped with work, the only workout I've gotten for a while has been cycling to work and back (unless if it's been rainy, which it has quite a lot recently). Excuses, excuses... Sunday was a beautiful and quite a warm day, it being so late in the autumn, so I went for a walk/jog. Not having too much difficulties, I ran 3km of it. Great! It really made a difference not having to run on tarmac. Again, the sunshine of this morning made me go and...

Velhametsä -

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...

Gagan ( From My Lil Window) -

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...

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...

Busy with people, but now few days alone. It feels good to sit in the dark and have the headphones on, listen to Dusky's Lost in you very loud and feel the evening. It's autumn, once again. I love how everything slows down, green colour is bursting into the shades of yellow, red, brown. I also feel some kind of longing for... what? Maybe the old days. I hope that one day I can try riding again. I quit my lessons when I was young because I was too afraid to call to the stable and make a...

Jotenkin edellisestä postauksesta on päässyt vierähtämään melkein kuusi viikkoa... No, mä syytän ihmissuhde- ja autokoulustressiä. Nyt pahin lienee onneksi ohi ja neulominen huvittaa taas, ehkä musta tulee vielä kunnon bloggaajakin. Looks like it's almost six weeks since my last posting... I'm blaming it on the stress caused by learning to drive and human relationships. The worst phase ought to be over now and I fancy knitting again, though, so maybe I'll return to being a proper...

While I've always known that you can control many of the applications running in OSX using applescript I have very rarely tried that myself. Now, as I have a use case of semi-automation of skype video calling for the kids I started experimenting. I did buy a tikitag rfid reader on cheap which will be used for triggering the call. Here's what will be triggered by the rfid tag. This simple script checks if person xxxxxx is online and tries to open a call if he is. At the same time the script...

Despite of numerous appeals, demonstrations and strong critisism among the specialists and media (in Finland and abroad), today the Finnish Parliament will put the so called Lex Nokia to the vote in the plenary session. EDIT: The Government porposal was approved some time ago in a 96-56 vote, with 47 parlamentarians absent. "Lex Nokia", because the whole idea of the law, let alone big parts of the text itself, has been put together by the reps of the Nokia company. Also in the Finnish media...

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...
