First of all I would like to express my warmest thanks to our hostesses, we really appreciate your hospitality.

ILTAMAT

ILTAMAT - Finnischer Abend 19.9.2008 on the stage of Interkulturelle Bühne in Frankfurt-Bornheim. Finns adding their salt to the global soup of the action weeks "days of respect". Last year we did the finnish tango night in this location, it has some secret charm, it's really cosy and perfect place for exotic shows like our evening.

Sirpa Masalin is the poetry slam lady number one, audience was very impressed of her erotic lyrics performance, accompanied by her husbands magic drumming.

When organazing actions many normally closed doors open to you, like the back stage doors ...
singers of UUSIKUU getting dressed.
UUSIKUU's guest book, the audience is invited to write their comments, what a great idea!

And so the show is finished, everybody enjoyed the finnish music, even the foreigners who have no clue about the language. Conencting people, we are, we finns...! Well done, UUSIKUU!

Hi guys, you earned your *taskulämmin kossu!

*Finnisch für Anfänger:
tasku = Tasche/pocket
lämmin = warm/warm
kossu = Koskenkorva vodka


At least one person was dressed the correct way - SISU-tees still available, contact me.

Laura, would you have imagined that UUSIKUU now is famous in Hongkong as well ...?

Sunday, 21.9. in front of the future European Central Bank. When will it be ready ...?

Finnischer Abend in Bornheim

"days of respect"

SCHÖNER ABEND NICHT NUR FÜR FINNINNEN UND FINNEN! 19.9.08 ab 19 Uhr.

Omistuskirjoitus*

Why do people collect autographs? Because those signatures upgrade the value of the object, I guess. Sells better in the future auctions. (Yes, markets are crashing ... one has to find new investments). Like books, I have one signed by M.A.Numminen, and one signed by Jan Costin Wagner. And my hubby has a postcard signed by Kike Elomaa, that happened in Billnäs Beerfestival about 20 years ago. Kike used to be the world champion in body building. Yes, female. Wonder how worthy that card might be today ...?

I now have started a new collection: cd's signed by composers. WOW. YEZ. Yes indeed. My first cd carrying the autograph of the composer includes contemporary classical music composed by Jarkko Hartikainen. A young, promising student from Helsinki Sibelius Akademia occupying our guest room until Friday. I am so proud. Thanks Jarkko. Poke him in facebook.

* Finnisch für Anfänger:
omistaa = haben/own
kirjoitus = Schrift/writing
omistuskirjoitus = Widmung/dedication

(omistusasunto = Eigentumswohnung .... )

Najlah-babe

Another doggie babe: Najlah, 4 months young, what a wild girl!

Najlah is a Border Collie:

Der Border-Collie zählt aufgrund seiner Intelligenz und seines Arbeitstriebes sicherlich zu den faszinierendsten Hunderassen der Welt. (wikipedia)

"Der Border Collie gehört zu den sogenannten Schattenhunden, das heißt, er bewegt sich am liebsten in der Nähe des Menschen, ohne daß er dazu ständig aufgefordert werden muß. Dadurch können sehr enge Bindungen und Struckturen entstehen.
Ein ausgeglichener Border Collie ist freundlich, unwahrscheinlich verschmust, kinderlieb und ein wunderbarer Begleiter, der seiner Familie treu ergeben ist. Die Freundlichkeit des Border Collies zeigt sich auch bei Besuch, egal ob dieser schon bekannt oder fremd ist. Jeder wird freundlich begrüßt. Allerdings bleibt der Border nur dann so ausgeglichen und freundlich, wenn er genug Anreize zur Beschäftigung bekommt. Hier ist auf jeden Fall der Besitzer des Hundes gefordert.
Einordnen muß man ihn bei den intelligentesten Hunderassen, somit hat er einen ausgeprägten Charakter."

Dogs love shoes! So we had to rescue ours on the piano! I would call this artistic placement.

HYVÄ SUOMI I!!!


HYVÄ SUOMI! Finally the FINNS are getting the football/soccer thing. They scored the first goal of the match, and got the Germas REALLY nervous. 3-3. Endresultat. WOW WOW WOW. FINNLAND, GLÜCKWUNSCH!!!



Suomi ja Saksa tasasivat maalit ja pisteet MM-karsintaottelussa Olympistadionilla. Suomi kävi kolmesti johdossa, mutta Miroslav Klose nakutti Saksan yhtä monta kertaa takaisin rinnalle. (Iltasanomat)

Käsittämätön jalkapalloilta Olympiastadionilla.
Suomi teki kolme maalia Saksaa vastaan, ja poistui pettyneenä kolealta syysnurmelta. Valkopaitainen kotijoukkue johti kolme kertaa, pelasi aktiivisesti ja sai kolmesti unelmoida Saksan kaatamisesta. Joka kerta Saksa tuli tasoihin ja vei yhden pisteen MM-karsinnan avauksessa (Helsingin Sanomat)

Saisonstart 2008

1 Wochenende
41 Galerien
Frankfurt 5.-7.9.2008


Saisonstart: 41 galleries opened their doors for a long Friday nite. This Friday was extremly good, the weather warm ( it only rained after midnite), many people checking gallery streets' offerings.

Some galleries are more popular than others. Who knows the reason? ART? Or the nuts the gallerists are offering. Cheap wine you get everywhere ... See and to be seen, that seems to be the thing in many "popular" galleries. High heels included.


My flat heeled arttouring friends studying the prices of ART.

If I had 14.000 euros extramoney I would love to get this world map to be my own.

This season most galleries show paintings, and photographs. We liked these works of Mr. Cheikh Diagne, artist originating from Senegal.

Sculptures in plastic could not really impress us, even if made by a chinese artist. Olympic games are over, why to worry about China anymore ...? Staubfänger, said somebody.

This entrance door was very fascinating, made of belts!


Fahrgasse seems to be the most popular gallery area this year, not so much disturbing traffic as in the Braubachstrasse, loads of galleries next to each other, bars and restaurants available. Audrey likes the location, too, I think I saw her already last year there ...
