2017 has not been a good blogging year for me, but reading-wise it has been pretty excellent. I have been thinking about making a blogging comeback (once again!) for a while now and what better way to do that than share some stats from my 2017 reading. Like last year, I am using the template from Jamie's blog . If you've been thinking about summing up your 2017 reading in some way I highly recommend checking out Jamie's questions -- as a bonus, you get a chance to share your opinions with a...

Rakentumistyömaa -

This year totall didn't go as planned. Last year I sent 36 job applications went to 17 job interviews and got one job, from which I got fired after 2 weeks. The main reason why I couldn't earn my living independently but needed a job (instead of being an enterpreneur on the other side of the negotiation table) was bad time management. In October I made a major breakthrough in time management by discovering by experimentation a time management system, which allows me to put in enough hours in...

Botanist on Alp -

I have written earlier about the tragedy of the Russian nation. Such suffering, such gifts to humanity, such corrupt, sadistic rulers. And so today. Asymmetric, highly ingenious web warfare, injecting vile poison to liberal societies. To what purpose? What is the positive vision? There is none but impotent ethnic-gangsteric rage, nothing to aspire for, no progress imagined, an age old despotism wishing for its old glories of rape and conquest. An empty shell, the elites of Russia, as always.

Kuvanveistäjän arkitodellisuus -

   Kalle Mustonen is a Finnish contemporary artist who reimagines modern culture in monumental and mythic terms, as in his intriguing large-scale wooden sculptures with shed-like interiors that visitors are often invited to peek into. The Gnome King series is based on stories from European folklore and recalls a certain variety of garden ornament. It also references a darker ecological and political message.      I met and worked with Kalle in 2004 in Orivesi, Finland, and immediately knew...

When it comes to true crime books, podcasts and series, I am a HUGE fan. So much so that I often opt for tales of true crimes rather than listening to music as a bike around, spend my money on true crime books instead of novels and eagerly wait for new true crime series to make their premiere. A while ago I was asked to recommend my favorite true crime books on Twitter. While I did share some recommendations there, I got the idea of putting together a more comprehensive list of books, podcasts...

By both doors of his burial chamber are a pile of bones, weapons and other detritus of battle, and next to a plundered chest lies the remains of a book. Gandalf, together with Frodo and Gimli, starts figuring out the book, which turns out to be an account of Balin's Khazad-dûm reclamation project. Balin set up his throne in the...

Terkkuja tv'n äärestä! Minut tuntevat saattavat tietää, että aikaa katsoa telkkaria ei kamalasti arkipäivissä ole. Niin upeita kuin useat sarjat ja elokuvat ovatkin, en jaksa arkea jos en liiku ja nuku tarpeeksi. Ja jos töiden ja epämääräisen kodinhoidon jälkeen liikun, ei energiaa tai aikaa enää riitä kamalasti muuhun. Such a tragedy. On kuitenkin muutamia sarjoja, joita seuraan orjallisesti (ja siinä sivussa katson melko paljon dokkareita). Yksi sarjoista on myös yksi...

George Stevensin Paikka auringossa (A Place in the Sun, 1951) on nähty televisiossa useita kertoja 2000-luvulla, ainakin seitsemän kertaa. Vaikka elokuva on läpikotaisin tuttu, se on niin vangitseva, että oli pakko jäädä sitä seuraamaan. Olennainen osa vangitsevuutta on Montgomery Cliftin maaninen, hermostunut ja samaan aikaan herkkä näytteleminen. Elokuva perustuu Theodore Dreiserin romaaniin An American Tragedy (1925), joka ilmestyi suomeksi vuonna 1947 nimellä Amerikkalainen...
