hey everybody, started this morning with one of my favourite moomin mugs, the headless girl as my head and heart is in helsinki today, and the moomins were my first introduction to that country with their books and wonderfully creepy haunting stop motion films!
diinner and bedtime rituals here soon but will catch up as soon as i can, have a great time everybody at the gig and on here 💫
Ice rinks are the biggest venues here in Finland given that ice hockey is easily the most popular sport here.
I'd feel surprised if anyone is able to find any sahti from Helsinki. It's not that usual of a drink here. Muikku (fish) you could be able to find from stores/restaurants with fresh fish available.
Anyways, welcome to Finland you all and have a great gig!
We should not forget the great filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki, wich centered some of his films in Helsinki. And also remember the film Night on Earth, in wich Jim Jarmush placed one of the five stories precisely in Helsinki, using regular Kaurismäki actors.
yes!! love kaurismäki and night on earth! also you can add marimekko’s flower design which most surely have seen on tote bags, stationary or napkins i guess. the flowers come in black too if someone is interested

hello everyone, first time on this forum - couldn't get my registration going in time for Riga. I got to visit both cities in summer 2019 and had an amazing time. I already feel comfortable on this forum since someone referenced Aki Kaurismaki and Jim Jarmusch!
looking forward to following along and contributing more across the board. wonder if the earlier start time means a longer show this evening?
