HELSINKI & ME.
THE USED @ THE CIRCUS

EN: I try to visit my sister and stepsister's family in Helsinki as often as possible.
Last summer I went there quite often, since it was older sister's bachelorette party in May 
and wedding in August. Then also attended one work related but fun and athletic trip, since I won
voting at work.. So here's some photos of my work trip, and last one's from the early summer days 
day before the hen partying. :) It's been such a long time, but I just had to publish these!

And tomorrow morning I'll take the 8am bus to Helsinki, where I'll have lunch with my dear friend
and the night I'm spending with my little sister at bar The Circus; we're going to see THE USED live !
I bought their debut album looong time ago. It was published in 2002 - it's been 10 years already.
I heard couple of their songs on the radio, The Taste of Ink was other one of them and it's so great.
And they got some attention back then, because singer Bert dated Kelly Osbourne.
 But I haven't listened to any of their new stuff. Well that's about to change. There's so much roughness
but also beauty in their music. Must do some more freshly released video searching on the tube now.
It's been ten years. I kind of missed you already.

FIN: Koitan käydä kylässä pikkusiskoni ja siskopuolen perheen luona Helsingissä niin usein kuin mahdollista. Viime kesänä kävin siellä aika paljon, sillä vanhemman polttarit olivat toukokuussa ja häät elokuussa. Sittemmin kävin myös työhön liittyvällä, mutta hauskalla ja urheilullisella reissulla sillä voitin Tyhy-tyyppi äänestyksen töissä.. Joten tässä on vähän kuvia työreissulta, ja viimeiset ovat alkukesältä päivää ennen polttareita. :) On mennyt hurjan pitkä aika mutta piti saada nämäkin julkaistuksi! :D

Huomenna lähden aamubussilla kohti Helsinkiä, uudelle pikavisiitille. Siellä tapaan ystäväni lounaan merkeissä ja illalla mennään pikkusiskon kanssa The Circukseen THE USEDin keikalle !
Ostin v.-02 julkaistun debuuttilätyn monia vuosia sitten, edesmenneestä paikallisesta Happy Note-musiikkikaupasta. Olin kuullut pari biisiä YleX:ltä, toinen niistä The Taste of Ink, ja tykästyin bändiin kovasti. Ja he saivat lisähuomiota, kun solisti Bert deittaili Kelly Osbournea. Sen jälkeisiä biisejä en ole kuitenkaan kuullut, mutta tämä muuttui nyt. Bändin musiikki on karua, mutta myös omaan korvaani kaunista.
Nyt aion tehdä vähän ennakkokuunteluja uudemmasta materiaalista tuben puolella.
Kymmenen vuotta myöhemmin. Olikin jo ikävä.
