    Next song-by-song clip. This time The Silence is Mine and it's a song by Timo Somers. And based on those snippets in that clip, it's going to be a very good song indeed. Something vey different.
  2. @hunebedbouwer, There will be lot's of counting for you. And I'm going to go with live versions: -7 Days To The Wolves - Wembley (Vehicle Of Spirit) 4 points -She Is My Sin - Pakkahuone, Tampere (From Wishes to Eternity) 4 points. I used to listen to the CD-version of this on repeat way back then. Jukka's drumming is just fantastic, btw. -Song Of Myself - Wacken ( Showtime, Storytime) 4 points -Sacrament Of Wilderness - Pakkahuone, Tampere (From Wishes to Eternity) 3 points -Everdream - Wacken (Showtime, Storytime). 3 points I could listen to Floor's soft singing in beginning for hours. -The Siren - Hartwall Arena (End Of An Era) 2 points And 5 points goes to this one. If there is one performance that pretty much sums up all the reasons for my new interest for the whole band, it's this one: -Ghost Love Score - (Buenos Aires 2012)

    It would be nice if these people would actually improve their webpages when they update the design. I just hope they don't thrash FMI.Fi. It works really well and it is easy to use. Information is quite easy to get and there's also historical information if you want to make comparisons. These dudettes woke up from their winter hibernation roughly three weeks ahead of the schedule in Korkeasaari zoo. I don't know if they know something that we don't know, but this happened roughly at the same time the weather forecast started predicting early spring. Nice outdoor days coming up. The snow snow melted fast, but there's still plenty of it left. Where going going to have nice, sunny days and it's going to be rather warm for February.

    And I thought I was all ready the official Ice Hockey and Loudness War-dude. Friday 20.00 sharp, OK. Ice Hockey and Loudness War-reports at another time, then. Hmm, moaning about the noise levels in modern music, check. Moaning about the weather, check. Moaning about sports, check. I'm really turning into this guy:

    First signs of spring coming up next week. The winter has been rather snowy, actually it started snowing after new year and never stopped until it started pouring every form of rain imaginable a couple of days ago. Snow is now going fast and there's still a lot of it left. The plow equipment has been in heavy use for sure this winter. But now the forecast is changing. High pressure is forming over northern Europe and it might well last for weeks. There are even chances of Foehn wind-phenomenon happening next weekend. It happens when the moist air coming from Atlantic drops it's rain on windward slopes of the Scandinavian mountains. Once that now dry air moves to the leeward slopes of the mountains the air warms rapidly, producing a warm wind known as Foehn. Temperatures in Sweden and western Finland might well rise above 5 degrees and that warm wind combined with sunshine melts snow rapidly. So first signs of upcoming spring in the air, even though now when you look outside you might not believe it.

    By this time I've stopped questioning anything. I just grab my snow shovel and go to work. There's a word in German language to describe this weather. And it's starts with S, but isn't Sauerkraut.

    FINLAND, THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS

    Well, they are planning a state funeral for him. I guess the sad thing was that once more we had somebody, who gave the public what they wanted. We could blame him for everything (and he did some horrible things and did some time in prison even), but for some reason the public always found their way to his gigs, to see him make an ass out of himself.

    Hazy Shade is great song. And I also like that Bangles-cover very much. Well, I would have go with that 5th one. Or this is a trick question and you mean Vivaldi? We will fight this winter like the ones before it. Eventually it will end. I just hope it doesn't snow in April:

    Sorry, I was typing it wrong. What I mean is that the record was set 20 years ago today (28.1. - 99). Yeah. There is a major heatwave in Australia with temperatures of almost 50 degrees. That amount of snow in the Alps, Switzerland, southern Germany and Austria will eventually melt. And I fear that means major flooding once it starts to melt.

    That sounds like Latin. 20 years today from the official record for cold weather in Finland. -51,5 in Kittilä. There where problems like power cuts and there was some talks about evacuating people from those coldest parts, but generally speaking I don't recall that much chaos and mayhem. Another cold day in Finland during winter. That is the second lowest temperature measured in Europe, btw. And not surprisingly, the coldest was measured in Sweden (2.2 1966, -52,6 C in Vuoggatjålme). So damn you Swedes, you just have to steal everything from us.

    Let me see, full=täysi wolf=susi, blood=veri, moon=kuu. Would that be something like täysi sudenverenkuu. We do have a similar word, though - superverisusikuu. Superbloodwolfmoon. Yeah, it must be chilling in the Netherlands because of the humid Atlantic winds. Finland is more often under the dry Siberian air mass and that's not as chilly as that humid air. A colleague of mine was in Spain during winter time and told me it was far chillier there than in here. And very humid. In Finland modern houses have thick windows with 3 or 4 glasses in them, very thick layer of insulation in the walls, roof and under floor, thermal doors and underfloor heating, so they are very warm and well insulated.
