Bow down to the Lordi

With Lordi bringing home the big dolmade from Athens this week Helsinkians will be treated to a special welcome back concert in the Market Square at 6pm on Friday. I also believe there maybe a concert on Saturday. Nevertheless I am hoping they incorporate the career alcholics of Helsinki and recreate a Thriller live performance. HKI RockCity!

Here is a link to a webcam that will show the show. Australian time is 7hours in front of Helsinki so that means you should tune in as early as 3am sunday morning, like thats gonna happen.

To Liza or not to Liza

As summer approaches feet start itching for adventure, flowers blossom and invitations to Liza Minnelli concerts appear. This one in particular in Dusseldorf Germany. Oh the dilemma. Not going left not going right? Time will tell. A month to ponder.

City Makeover

Well impressed by the amazing streetart on display in Barcelona. Check out this site for more fine examples. Stencils, posters, stickers and graffiti make one of the most colourful cities in the world even more colourful. I managed to see many examples and have been more impressed with streetart than half the shit I see in modern art museums. Well done people.

One day in the late mid-eighties, I was in my early late-twenties. I had just been dismissed from University after delivering a brilliant lecture on the aggressive influence of German philosophy on rock'n'roll entitled 'You, Kant, Always Get What You Want.' At 26, my academic career was over, I had never kissed a boy, and I was still sleeping with mom. Such were the thoughts flooding my tiny head on the day that I was sunning myself... in an old bomb crater I had discovered near the Wall. I am naked. Facedown, on a broken piece of church, inhaling a fragrant westerly breeze. ... my God I deserve a break today.

Big welcome to Helsinki Urs and Nadine...only 3 more sleeps.


I am sure our Kylie did not have to deal with lowcost airline websites, frequent flyer programmes and finnish customer service when she got her little booty down to Barcelona.

Picasso, Gaudi, Nellie, Miro, Domènech, Meg, Sagnier and John I am doing my best but its all looking a bit hazy and very slow.

Lady Lumps

Last Friday I showed the kids, at the school where I work, The Corpse Bride to a great response thanks Tim. One of the kids then took the time to point out that Helena Bohnem Carter was the former childhood sweetheart of her mother's boyfriend. I am sorry but as a non/hetrosexual man I would be proud to have Helena on my resume or even call that guy Dad?!.

As Shakira will guarantee numerous teenage girls loosing their vaginity this summer Debbie Harry is trickling her love towards a large breasted bird in a cage. Deb has sent a nailfile in a cupcake to Lil Kim in the form of a great new track Dirty and Deep. stream it here .

Ringleader of the Tormentors

Last Night I Dreamt that somebody loved me and they did. This person also managed to get me a ticket to see my longtime idol Morrissey at the cable Factory in Helsinki last night. Morrissey has stood me up before back in 1991 when he claimed to be still ill, however, managaed to find time to entertain some Japanese fans. I sobbed with my friends who had spent countless dollars derived from retail and fastfood hell jobs to purchase gladioli. One friend even shaving MOZ into the back of her head. So Mel, Wiz, Nellie and Zoe kudos to you.

So Moz no hard feelings mate and thanks for putting on an awsome show last night. I nicked all these photos from some girlfiend from flickr who had the technology to capture the evening. Thanks luv.
