Hamppublogi -

Askeleni Hollannin kamaralla olivat monella tapaa suotuisat. Amsterdam on kallis, mutta ystävällisen squattikulttuurin tarjoama ilmainen katto pään päälle kompensoi paljon. Köyhälle huumeturistille en voi suositella, vaikka paikka on säilyttänyt omat nyanssinsa tupakointikiellosta tai muusta oikeistohallituksen säädösta huolimatta. Etelämmässä lasikopit ovat jälleen yleisempiä, tosin ne on varattu tupakoitsijoille – jointin polttaminen liian ahtaassa tilassa kun saattaa […]

Daedalos Memento -

South African Team In LA On GA Circumnavigation Attempt | Aero-News Network Sling 4 is a four-seater born out of the South African Sling LSA whose second prototype crashed in the ocean off the South African coast during flat-spin testing on February 13 2010. The crew are now stuck in LA by the US authorities, perhaps because of the proximity of 9/11 anniversary.

Laatikosta näkee kauas -

Jäljellä on vielä kaksi jaksoa. Viisi on jo tullut. Joukossa ei ole ollut yhtään pohjanoteerausta, ainakin yksi mestariteos kyllä. Jakso 1303, Margaritaville, ylsi suorastaan eeppisiin mittasuhteisiin rinnastaessaan ihmisten kohtalonuskoisen laman pelon kristinuskoon. Leukani loksahti lattiaan. Jakso oli ehdottomasti parasta sitten viime kauden Britney-jakson (1202). Josta muuten haluankin nyt kirjoittaa, koska en näköjään ole kirjoittanut, ja se oli kenties paras koskaan näkemäni...

Eliza does Oz -

Suuntasimme pääsiäisen kunniaksi rentoutumaan Southern Highlandsille New South Walesin maaseudulle Sydneyn lähialueelle. Idylliset maalaismaisemat ja kartanohotelli tarjosivat romanttiset puitteet ja sain tuntea itseni kuin paronittareksi entisajan elegantissa Englannissa.  Oli jo aikakin suunnata Southern Highlandsin alueelle! Pittoreski Southern Highlands on ehdottomasti New South Walesin tuntematon helmi, jolla on paljon tarjottavaa. Alueen hurmaavan persoonalliset pikkukaupungit ...

Itärannikon tuulia -

Miami oli melko paikka. Lords of Dogtown -leffasta rymistellessäni törmäsin sattumalta ranskalaiseen Hélèneen ja ystäväänsä Aurelieen. Hélènenhän olin tavannut Kaliforniassa jouluna. Uskomaton yhteensattuma (lisää aiemmassa Miami-jutussa)! Miamin SoBe ja etenkin Ocean Drive olivat tavallaan kliseistä kermakakkukimallusta mutta toisaalta komeine julkisivuineen ja hienoine valoineen aidosti kiinnostavaa ympäristöä. Hienojen auringonlaskujen aikaan seutu näytti todella hienolta...

Plugiton -

Olen ollut hiukan jälkijunassa viihteen kuluttamistottumuksissani. Lataan todella vähän materiaalia torrent-tiedostoina - johtuen osittain siitä, että laadukasta, selkeästi lisensoitua materiaalia tuntuu olevan paikoitellen melko vähän tarjolla. Latasin eilen isoimman koskaan lataamani torrent-paketin: South By South West'in 3 gigaisen promopaketin , joka sisältää 739 kappaletta yhtä monelta yhtyeeltä. Paketissa oli mukana ainakin kaksi suomalaista artistia: 22-Pistepirkko ja...

villamokka -

Edellisessä blogipostauksessa annoin ymmärtää että muutoksia on tulossa. Metamorfoosi on käynnissä - toukkamainen olo toppavaatteissa ainakin. Villa Mokka on tässä kivijalkakauppana helmikuun loppuun. Sitten hyppy uusiin ympyröihin. Huh. Mokkasukan tekoa jatkan. Sitä saa virtuaalipuodista, jota rustaan, remontoin ja rymsteeraan. Millaisia mielipiteitä, kokemuksia, toiveita jne hyvistä ja toimivista nettikaupan ratkaisuista teillä on, sekä asiakkaana että kenties sellaisen...

On Winning -

Michael Lopp, senior engineering manager at Apple held a presentation at South by Southwest. Summarized here by Tech Beat. Isn't following quote something in the line with Boyd's Snowmobiles concept or am I completely wrong? This was really interesting. Every week, the teams have two meetings. One in which to brainstorm, to forget about constraints and think freely. As Lopp put it: to "go crazy". Then they also hold a production meeting, an entirely separate but equally regular meeting which is...

As the editor of the English categories Liberalism and Libertarianism of the Open Directory Project (DMOZ) , to which among others the Google Directory is based on, I frequently receive feedback from American libertarians complaining, that libertarianism should not be classified as a subcategory of liberalism. The historical reasons why libertarianism is listed under liberalism are summarised here , but as I noticed that in the Globalization Institute Blog there were an article by Alex...

Seikkailuni Afrikassa -

Kavin keskiviikkona (eli viimeisena paivanani Joensuussa) pankissa kysymassa, josko heilla olisi Etela-Afrikan valuuttaa randeja. Keskustelu elakeikaa lahestyvan pankkineidin kanssa meni suurin piirtein nain: Mina: Hei. Olisiko teilla Etela-Afrikan randeja? Pankkineiti: Katsotaas...Minka valtion valuuttaa haluaisit? Mina: Etela-Afrikan. Pankkineiti: Selva, ja mika oli se valtio? Mina: Etela-Afrikka...? Pankkineiti: Mutta mika valtio Etela-Afrikassa? Mina: Etela-Afrikka. Pankkineiti: Mika oli...

Daily Loaf -

The president that should've been. I am talking, of course, about Al Gore. Loving, caring, and utterly boring, the man who won the popular vote in the latest American presidential election has kept a low profile in the ever-cooling atmosphere of post-9/11 America. Just last week though, when he finally opened his mouth in a public address for the first time in a year or so, the message that boomed out was clear and grave. The former vice-president spoke at an event organised by MoveOn.org , an...

Shanghai päiväkirja -

Noin tuli matkat purettua. Shanghaissa keli on pysynyt lämpimänä, mutta muuttunut varsin sateiseksi. Pahus. Onneksi kuitenkin harvoin sataa useampaa päivää putkeen, ja kelit ovat varsin mielyttäviä melkeinpä ympäri vuoden. Ja se kaiken muun ohella tekee Shanghaista varsin mukavan paikan vierailla. Ja vieraita onkin näiden vuosien aikana ollut jonkin verran käymässä. Yleensä kiinnostuksen kohteet ovat enmmän tai vähemmän samoja, ja vieraiden kysymykset toistavat itseään...

Nordic Exposure -

What comes to people's minds when they hear about Finland? I don't know, but if they can place it on the map, I guess they think it's so far up North it must be awfully cold all the time, there's loads of snow and ice bears roam the streets of Helsinki. Actually, it isn't as nice as that. Ice bears would perk up the picture (I know they are deadly beasts but they're also so cute, aren't they?). The truth about Helsinki in January is that it's bleak, wet, windy and chilly. The rest of the...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

Hello everybody! It's been now a while I wrote here last time. But I have a very good excuse. I have been busy! This post will be my last one considering my journeys in Southeast Asia. I hope you have liked to read these stories. I can tell you that this time what I spent in SE Asia has been more perfect, more beautiful and totally more exciting that I could have ever imagined. It was great time I had there but now it's time to look forward again. I have started to work in a finnish company and...

Velhametsä -

According to the south-Swedish newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad , Sverigedemokraterna is popular among youth , or, as the researcher suggets, it might just be a sign of teenage rebellion. Here are some excerpts from the article: "Every other ninth-grader does not know what party they would vote for in the parliamentary elections, or if they would vote at all, shows the extensive opinion research. At the same time the Sweden Democrats are enjoying great support. They became the most popular party...

Haado Blog -

Sorry for the negligence. I'm back. Back in Sapporo. Back from what or where? Well, a trip. Or rather, a journey. Yeah. Journey sounds more grand. Let's stick with that. T his journey began on the 28th of February, 2007, and ended exactly three wee ks later, 21st of March. Not even arguably, undeniably one of the best journeys of my life. This enormous excursion included strange and won derful coincidences, new acquaintances, old friends, good luck, bad luck, beautiful scenery and of course...

Haado Blog -

And I can honestly say, I've gotten quite far...Japan, to be more articulate. In 25 years on the face of the planet called Earth I've done quite a bit of this and that..Nothing too significant..Nothing revolutionary, just lived and, hopefully, learned. Einstein had written the Annus Mirabilis Papers by the time he reached 25. Mozart composed his first great opera, Idomeneo , when he was 25. If u want to talk about more trendy figures, Ernesto Guevara received his medical diploma in at the age...




Tomorrow could be boring -

There have been many library closures in the UK and North America recently. Meanwhile South Korea is opening new ones. What's going on? Are public libraries obsolete? I wrote an article about this topic at Blogcritics and would love it...

Shanghai päiväkirja -

Ilman ruokaakaan ei voi elää, ulkomailta tuotettuja elintarvikkeita paras valikoima löytyy City Shop-ketjun liikkeistä, mutta myös Carrefour, Lotus, Pines, Wal-Mart ja Metro tarjoavat vaihtelevalla menestyksellä länsimaalaisia tuotteita. Voi olla myös mielenkiintoista silloin tällöin poiketa Ikean ja Marks & Spencerin ruokaosastoilla. Aina ei kannata vaivautua, vaan välillä kannattaa nauttia Shanghain laajasta ravintolavalikoimasta. Joitakin omia suosikkejani: Länsimaalaista...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

Yes. Quite much have happened since I last time wrote here. A lot of diving and climbing to the Mount Kinabalu. Let's start with the diving :) So in Semporna I went to Uncle Chang's diveshop and they had exactly what I wanted. A few fun dives at Pulau Sipadan. First I took 2 fundives and an accomodation in the close island - Pulau Mabul. On Tuesday 18th of April I then left towards Sipadan. There was 6 divers and 4 snorklers in the same speedboat. We had all our equipments ready and finally...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

The Journey gets an interestning start My folks gave me a ride to Tampere airport and there I met my travel mates Juuso and Pekka. We also met a new guy, Ilari (also from Tampere University of Technology.. just like the rest of us). Together we flew to Helsinki-Vantaa airport.Then the most amazing thing happened. We were waiting for the Helsinki-Bangkok flight as some airport staff member came to us and asked: "Would you like to earn some money? All you have to do is just not to go to this...

I have been using a Sigma 800 odometer for measuring cycling distances and an Excel table to keep track of them plus maximum and average speeds. However, there is a device that can do all that and more automatically and it's called Garmin Edge 200. It's a GPS device that records speed, distance, average speed, maximum speed and changes in elevation while also keeping track of your route. When you upload the data to the Garmin Connect site, you can view your route on a map or a satellite photo...

Gardener guy -

"I was just thinking that Jussi's surname was Ots. Same as the famous Estonian singer George Ots, and Ots, near as damn it, sounds similar to Oates, Captain Oates who was a member of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated expedition to the South Pole in 1911-12, and Oates famous last words were: "I am just going outside, and may be some time." So don't you see in the cosmic scheme of things, Jussi just had to disappear with the money, to give us all a chance. Just like Oates, Jussi disappeared...

Finn again wakes -

No, this post is not about Iraq, or any other political issue I have normally written about. This is about... wait for it... TV! Hooray! In recent days I have been so fortunate as to be exposed to some quality TV: I´ve spent hours on end watching old Monty Python stuff, and I´ve also enjoyed watching numerous episodes of the 1967 British classic, The Prisoner . I must say nothing that has been produced in recent years comes even close to the brilliance of these two classics. To prove my...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my fourth and last burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. In the 90's there were three big burger chains in Finland - McDonalds, Carrols and Hesburger. Two of these were original US based burger chains. You know the McDonals but also Carrols originally came to Finland as a franchise from the United States. Carrols Corporation was found in Syracusa NY, and during the 60's...

Kuva elää -

Kaikki rästissä uuden systeemin perustamisesta lähtien olevat elokuvat, niin lyhyesti kuin osaan, uusimmasta vanhimpaan. Bugsy Malone - 04.12.2008: Hauska lasten gangsterimusikaali (= lapset esittävät kaikki roolit... googlaa jos et usko/tajua). Vaikka miten hyvä, mutta miksi helvetissä lasten laulu on dubattu aikuisten äänillä? Loputon turhautuminen estää antamasta pisteiksi parempia kuin 3,5/5. Silti leffa, jonka haluan omistaa ja näyttää lapsilleni. Burn After Reading ...
