Motoristin Mutsi at home and garden -

We spent a day in nature. Hubby, our eldest son and I. It was a beautiful day. The sunlight was dancing around... climbing up to the hill... Can you hear it? The sound of silence... Beneath green... and some white... and Finnish superfood... around green and brown... blue from sky and lake. Because we were not in any national park, there was no fancy pic nic.  I brought home some lingonberries and even few blueberries.... and in the nature rested soul.

Scalada - all about Scala -

Implicit conversion is a useful mechanism, because it lets you extend libraries retroactively, without actually changing them. Let's take a common example. We would like to repeat some String, say "nice" three times. We could write it as: def *(times: Int, original: String) = { def multiply(times: Int): String = { if(times > 1) original + multiply(times - 1) else original } multiply(times) } As a bit of a sidenote, multiply is not tail-recursive, because its recursive call is not the last thing...

Links Golf Society -

Royal Oostende is the second of the Belgian links courses. Hmm. It does not actually sound good to call it "second". It is actually the first by many attributes. Driving South-West from Zoute, you'll find your way to Royal Oostende automatically. The course is located by the main road, right by the sea. If Royal Zoute is somewhere between links and heathland (see entry below), Oostende has a much more a links character, with most holes being clearly links holes, topped up with five holes cut...

Kamu suka nonton film? Pasti doyan nonton film horor kan walaupun cuma nungguin Nikita Mirzani sama Tera Patrick muncul sekilas di film. Nah, kamu yang suka nonton film horror/thriller Hollywood pasti nggak asing sama adegan-adegan yang bikin gregetan penontonnya. Apalagi pas tokohnya dikejar-kejar pembunuh atau mahluk ajaib lainnya. Rasanya antara skripnya suka terlalu polos atau aktrisnya suka cari perhatian penonton aja. Apa aja contohnya? 1. Dikejar pembunuh, malah lari menjauh dari...

Bortsa - My so called life -

Do you know the feeling when it seems that if you'd disappear right this second no one would notice? No one would even care.. Everyone would go about their business as usual and that one disappearance wouldn't have the slightest effect in their life. Well if you know that feeling, then you know how I'm feeling right now. Have been for a while. It makes you feel very small and insignificant. I actually did vanish for a while, just to see what would happen. Guess what? Nothing happened. Nobody...

Wild joys and wilder sins -

It finally happened. It’s been knocking on my door for the past 3-4 years and now it broke the door and came crashing in. Burn out, the magic word of the 21 st century. I started to get worried about myself a while ago when I realized that I’ve started skipping school for no apparent reason. I skip at least 3-4 hours a week and it’s not that I was especially tired or anything, I just can’t find the motivation to put on shoes and leave for school. I have also stopped going to the gym...

Otis kulturblogg -

Ibland träffar man på de mest häpnadsväckande tankegångar på webben. Det var min som som tipsade om följande resonemang på en blogg kallad ShelleyTheRepulicanCom: "Unlike Windows, which is a mature commercial product which is normally included with every new computer, Linux is given away. Now it may not sound like much of a problem, after all there is very little profit in merely giving a product away. This would be certainly true were in not for the Linux project's seductive Marxist...

Rio Baile Funk -

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...

Kyllä, vielä vuosi sitten vannoin ja vakuutin, että Mika on hirveää, huonoa ja kaikkea muuta mahdollista mahdollisimman epäimartelevilla adjektiiveilla. Totta kai. Vihasin Grace Kelly'ä ja Relax (Take It Easy)'a ja nyt olen koko kevään ja kesän odottanut, että miehen "Life in a cartoon motion" tulisi alennukseen, koska en nyt ihan päälle 20 euroa tuosta tahtonut maksaa. Viikolla sitten vihdoin sain sen ja eilen meikatessa, pukiessa ja hiuksia laittaessa teki mieli vain tanssia...

Runonkääntäjä eli traduttore di poesia -

Koko yön sen ääni palasi yhä uudestaan, ja uudestaan lankeaa tämä hiljainen, alituinen sade. Mitä oikein merkitsen itselleni, kun siitä täytyy muistuttaa, huomauttaa jatkuvasti? Onko niin, ettei koskaan se keveys, edes kovuus, jolla sade lankeaa, lupaa minulle mitään muuta kuin tätä, mitään vähemmän vaateliasta— olenko oleva tuomittu elinkautiseen levottomuuteen. Rakas, jos rakastat minua, makaa vierelläni, Ole minulle kuin sade, vapautuminen väsymyksestä, typeryydestä...

Introduction             Being the second paper I wrote during the semester this paper comes next in this journey. With this paper it was more than just writing a paper, it was more of finding a deeper meaning within a film and expressing it with words. In class we watched the film The Social Network. We each had to discuss in a paper what we believed the cultural artifact the movie was trying to portray. It was hard to set myself on one specific idea, because there were so many seen...

Tällaista sarjaa ei voi tehdä mainitsematta Orson Wellesin elokuvaa Kansalainen Kane (Citizen Kane, 1941), joka Sight And Sound -lehden kriitikkoäänestyksessä valitaan kerran kymmenessä vuodessa maailman parhaaksi. Näin on tehty vuodesta 1952 ja näin äänestettiin viimeksi 2002. Ja kyllähän Welles yhdessä Mercury-radioteatterinsa näyttelijöiden, käsikirjoittaja Herman J. Mankiewiczin , kuvaaja Gregg Tolandin sekä leikkauksesta vastanneiden Robert Wisen ja Mark Robsonin kanssa...

Just a generic comment on Bob Nardelli at helm of Chrysler, but in the post there are two books that I hadn't heard of before. Any of you read either of these and could give some comments?

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

Damn, the days just seem to roll by when it's summer time. So we actually had the first recordings already a week or so ago. We took two days with the crew saturday and sunday (7.-8.6) and laid down drums, basses and most of the guitars for three tracks. Those tunes were Kutteri, Terra Fungus and Hats and Ratchets. For once we got to start in time, as the guys arrived at Vantaa on 10.30 Saturday morning. One missed turn took the extra 30 minutes but no harm there. Toni, Perttu and Aki had taken...

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

So another session on its way a week ago during the first and second of August. Again Sami brought his gear to Turku and we camped out at Indigofloods practise room. The saturday was reserved for all possible basic stuff Perttu needed to get done. First of laying down the rhythm tracks, to ease the singing, to the couple of songs that still had no guitars. Fortunately both were older tunes, and Peb went through them with no apparent problems. Altough the PRS he was playing had just new strings...

So we had some excrement get in touch with a fan again last sunday. Yours truly hungover pretty bad from an awesome Tool-cover gig I saw on saturday, and the Indigo-people of choice Peb and T in mint condition. The agenda was guitars and vocals for Retreat and ElPez, with Samu recording, Sami occasionally supervising and then me grapping the wheel as S&S had to go celebrate fathers day. The guitars we did couple of weeks ago were good, in terms of what Peb had rammed in. Tero's parts were done...

Making Indigoflood's Rats and Hatchets -

So finally we had the second session for the album on last Saturday. This time we did vocals and rest of the guitars for the three songs we started last time. The tunes are Terra Fungus, Kutteri and Rats and Hatchets (or Hats and Ratchets, I never remember which way it is with the song). We started a little after twelve and got done at around six, so everything was done fairly fast. First of we handled the rest of Tero's guitars. Those got done real fast, even before Peb got to the studio...

In my mind, there can be no cooler country than one issuing postal stamps which are vinyl records that can actually be played! The stamps were issued already in 1973, but 40 years later I am  myself going to Bhutan for one year contract as a UN volunteer. Yay!

Japanilainen Nigo aloitti uransa suunnittelemalla t-paitoja, joita hän kiersi myymässä bileissä ja klubeilla. Vuonna 1993 Tokion Harajukuun perustamansa A Bathing Ape -liikkeen symbolista – Apinoiden Planeetta-merkistä tuli pian Tokion katumuodin halutuin brändi. Sen sijaan että olisi suosion myötä alkanut syytää tavaraa markkinoille, Nigo ymmärsi että brändin suosio perustui designin lisäksi sen vaikeaan saatavuuteen ja mystisyyteen merkin ympärillä. A Bathing Ape -vaatteita...

I'm a bit dissapointed of the new pack of Orien I bought. The kibble diameter used to be about 12mm and is now 16mm... Now it doesn't sound very much, but when you calculate the area you get 78% increase in size. When I only use dry food for training, it means I get to do less repetitions or they will get fat. Yoda likes the improvement though as he gets more food. Gizmo Yoda Some standing images. Yoda got a bit better handling because some dogs actually know how to stay back when asked and not...

I just realised how little time it will be until release of Sims 3. It looks nice from the outside with the open city, but I'm not sure about all the things I've heard about the build mode. I don't really care to play with the sims a lot, but I do like building the town. It can't be much worse than in sims 2, they must of learned a bit from the new SimCity... The buildings do look nice from outside on the screencaps. I hope it will be good. Some of the things sound just great so at least it has...

Welcome to the REAL world -

This question hit so close I just had to answer :D Okay, so I was on an inter rail trip with my bf and friend. We had been traveling for the whole day on our way from Nice to Zürich, and we arrived in Zürich around 8pm. We had one hour left to find a Seebuch camping site, and failed to do so, so we had no place to stay for the night. We didn't want to pay for a hotel/hostel so we decided to stay out for the night (we had done that once before on our trip so it wasn't anything too new). First...

There has been news about how Finnish people just let the berries rot in the forests instead of picking them. Estimated 90% of the berries are not picked, although they're VERY healthy and full of vitamins and antioxidants. They're really so called super foods! We have lots of different berries in Finland and while I was in Kuopio, I picked raspberries and blueberries from the forest and blackcurrants from my mom's yard. Later in the autumn it's going to be time for lingonberries and...
