Man häääpnar…

Säg mig, vad är detta? Läs kolumnen och kom tillbaks hit.

http://hbl.fi/nyheter/2013-04-13/438501/kommentar-om-slottsbalen-en-opraktisk-losning

Många har kommenterat den här kolumnen redan, men jag ansluter mig till den nödvändigt populistiska hånkören i form av en liten förklaring för eventuella rikssvenska* läsare. Det handlar alltså om en liten ändring gällande platsen för den årliga självständighetsbalen, vars koncept kan sammanfattas så här: presidenten bjuder in aktuella och mindre aktuella celebriteter för mat och dans. Klänningar är av central vikt i den stelkrampsdrabbade tv-produktion, som ofattbart nog attraherar både adel, borgerskap och bönder till sofforna (eller schäslongerna?).

Att bönder även skulle vara gäster var tydligen otänkbart för Annika Hällsten, som verkar tycka att alla boende utanför Helsingforsregionen rent definitionsmässigt inte kan höra till dem som får tillträde till de fina salonger som presidentens slott i centrala Helsingfors inhyser. Alla som betyder något bor i Helsingfors, så är det bara. Att dessa måste skjutsas till Tammerfors för en bal är slöseri med allas tid. Och hårspray, tydligen.

För en gångs skull är jag ense med den ofta fullständigt vidriga kommentarspöbeln på hbl.fi. Artikeln förtjänar att bli bespottad, en rejäl bondloska.

Och förlåt en förmäten fråga från en huvudstadsbo, men finns det tillräckligt med taxibilar i Tammerfors?

Nej, Hällsten, jag skrattar förvisso, men såna där frågor går bara inte att förlåta.

Here’s the Video For “The Sea Within You”

Here’s the video for the song “The Sea Within You”, which appeared on “All Blackshirts to Me”. The video is Turku artist Appu Jasu‘s interpretation of the song. 

The Sea Within You

Series of signals, visible marks — so wrong to assume there was light in the dark
An owl, an alley cat, a hermit crab
We say there was nothing that we could’ve done — a silent lie when we need one
You’re brought back here to your ancestral home

Go on tell me, I really want to know, through the sunlight, through the snow
Yes, tell me now, did you do it according to plans?

And who would start believing in this too late hour
I lay my flower, I hide my dirty face

And whom did I know?
An owl, a hermit crab, an alley cat

And we saw all the signals saw all the marks — so why assume there was light in the dark?
Shell cracked open, pearl was black
And we try hard to think it was nobody’s fault — means we don’t want to be human at all
You’re brought back here along with the things you owned

So go on tell me, I really want to know, through the sunlight, through the snow
Tell me now, was it in the heat of the moment?

Who would start believing in this too late hour
I lay my flower, I hide my dirty face

And whom did i know?
An owl, a hermit crab, an alley cat
Shell cracked open, pearl was black

 

Appu also made the video for “After the Fact”

The Complete Horoscope

 

It is unfortunate that Facebook forces people to follow groups that they think are, I and quote, shitty, unquote.

Here is the complete guide to the near future. And to Miro I just want to say that I was once like you. It was with those exact sentiments that I started this shitty band.

Aries: You have the opportunity to make an important decision. Don’t do it. You will be held responsible later.

Taurus: You sick fuck.

Gemini: Today is no day for independent thinking. Let your superiors think for you.

Cancer: It is with mixed emotions you watch your neighbor being loaded into the ambulance. At least from now on there will be peace and quiet.

Leo: You are thinking of making a long journey. This would be economically disastrous, so you quickly dismiss the idea.

Virgo: Several small, seemingly insignificant mishaps slowly break your spirit over the course of the day, resulting in a fit of rage at 9 sharp.

Libra: A family feud over trifles escalates and becomes potentially life-threatening. You would be mad to give in at this point, though.

Scorpio: You’re stressed out at work and may want to spend the weekend relaxing. Careful with the alcohol, though. Remember you’re working on Monday.

Sagittarius: You’ve been spreading gossip and it’ll cost you dearly. You’ll have to reveal painful secrets of your own in order to remedy the situation.

Capricorn: You will be unusually productive today. Now would be the time to reflect upon the poor quality of your work.

Aquarius: On this very day you convert to calvinism… hmm, this can’t be right, can it?

Pisces: You’ll get a chance to change today. Remember that changes are not always for the better. They may also drastically reduce your well-being.
