Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Ai kamalaa, hah-hah, Marja Tyrni sanoi kun uuden sähkölaskun näki

Marja Tyrni, or Marja Seabuckthorn, or Seabuckthorn Berry since “marja” is “berry” in English.

This is a, hm, woman in her 40s or 50s from Pallivaha residential area of Turku (which really exists, although “pallivaha” means “ball wax”, where balls are of course those of […]

Jore Marjaranta, talented but to my opinion somewhat underestimated as solo musician

Jore Marjaranta, talented but to my opinion somewhat underestimated as solo musician

He’s an ex-Leningrad Cowboy who also did music for Pahat Pojat (Bad Boys) and Minä ja Morrison (Me and Morrison) movies.

Another popular piece by Marjaranta is Mies (Man), but I did not find the video on YouTube.

A good old song ’bout breakup

A good old song 'bout breakup

And HOW Ultra Bra sing it, mmm… + somewhat Kaurismäki style video.

Ultra Bra – Sinä lähdit pois / You walked away

It’s funny that people produced a lot of alternative texts for the refrain 😀

Sinä lähdit pois, minä ammuin parvekkeelta kalpenevaan selkääsi. Kiersit verilammikon ja arvaan ettet kadu tätä eroa.

Sinä lähdit […]

Is that because I answered “sushi”?

Is that because I answered "sushi"?

I watch the Idols on TV. So, it’s natural that I also watch the Choruses’ War on Nelonen.

This test said I qualify for Virve Rosti’s chorus 😀

I like T-shirts with word prints

Like this one carrying a poem by Tommy Tabermann:

There are no walls,

There are just bridges.

There are no closed doors,

There are just gates.

Knit it and leave it

Knit it and leave it

Neulegraffiti, or knit graffiti, or yarnbombing, is a comparatively new yet very popular trend in the street art.

Its idea is simple: knit a pattern of whatever shape and size you like, take it to a public place, attach somewhere so that your creation would be visible to others, and leave. That’s it. Or, […]

One of my favourite songs lately

One of my favourite songs lately

Happoradio – Puhu äänellä jonka kuulen

Kumpaa sinä pelkäät, melua vai rauhaa? Kumpaa sinä kaihdat, yksinäisyyttä vai laumaa?

Miksi sä itket, kun naapurissa jonkun lapsi nauraa?

Olet syvää vettä, luokse pääsemätön vuori Unohdettu ullakko, olet titaaninen kuori

Miksi sä itket, kun naapurissa jonkun lapsi nauraa? Miksi sä itket, kun radiossa joku rakkaudesta laulaa?

Puhu […]

All you need is right here. Suden Vuosi / The Year of the Wolf (2007)

I must make a confession now. I have never seen any of Olli Saarela’s movies before. Rukajärven tie (Ambush) is still catching dust on my bookshelf – shame shame shame – but now I’ll watch it for sure.

Because this another one was really worth it.

The Silent People

Have you ever heard of the Silent People of Kainuu? Or, also referred to as the Oddity of Highway 5.

The idea is as simple as genius. An army of scarecrows (some say, the number is over 1000) dressed in second hand […]

Andrew Wyeth died

(1917 – 2009). He’s had a long life, but the feeling of bitterness and abandonement won’t heal. Probably my favorite American painter. When I first saw Christina’s World, without even knowing the story, I felt that air was going apart, so intense the painting was.

R.I.P.
