My back yesterday

There you have it

Still monday

Ok fuckers, lets do this album now. We've recorded some vocals today, then went to eat and just got back. Now we continue with the vox and then go jogging, then I'll lay down some guitars and so forth. I'm getting sick and tired of wasting time just trying to do stuff, now one has to actually do something.


"Losers always whine about their best, winners go home and fuck the prom queen"

It's monday...


yesterday was pretty terrible, had a glorious hangover that kept me from doing much. I did write the basis of a new song still, and jailbroke my iPhone (finally). Today it looks pretty nice outside, hangover is gone (back still hurts from falling, but I guess I'll manage). Should go first jogging for a while and then start laying down those tracks again. Hopefully everything will work out now, I think we've had more setbacks than one session needs already...

The Jehova of Hangova

Quite the hangover...

I'm feeling like shit, way too much to drink last night. Got so pissed with all the shit not working that I got totally hammered. Childish, I know, but at least I wasn't pissed off anymore. I also managed to fall down and hurt my back last night, hurts like hell and looks pretty funky as well. Mr.T took a photo, maybe I'll post it later. 

Fuck me with a flaming fist....

Fuck this shit

This session...

...will take me to an early grave. Problems after problems after problems, my sense of humor is running out soon. Not gonna bother you with the details, it's technical crap, let's leave it at that.

Time to open a beer...

So, yesterday was fucked...

More technical difficulties, which resulted in me only recording one song yesterday. Got pissed and after that got hammered. Now I have a slight hangover and should start recording again. Oh joy...

Another day, another dollar

Yep, it's me again.

Last night I decided to concentrate in beer&sauna instead of playing. The poker tournament took too long and I wasn't feeling it anymore. The time was definitely not wasted though, as we came up with a great song to cover, really excited to do that one. Also I learned from my mistakes and actually set an alarm for today, woke up at 11:50 and started getting ready to rock again. Now it's time to lay down the boogie. Later homies!

So, I didn't make it to the money in the bounty tournament. I did manage to bust out one other bounty player though, so that nets me a 100e. Of course now I'm scared shitless that I'll get beaten to bloody pulp, as the guy I busted was Amin Asikainen :)


Might not make the 3 song goal today, as I forgot there was this poker tournament tonight where I'm supposed to be one of the bounty players. But I have already finished 1 and 2/3, so it's not a day wasted. Have to see if I can finish the second one after the tournament.

Top of the morning to ya

Is 15:33 still morning? I guess it is if you woke up at 14:00... Recorded guitar for one song last night and sent it to Matias to check it out so there's no flukes of any kind soundwise (playing is shit of course, as it's me playing). There's not, sounds great. That means that I'll have some coffee and lock myself into the studio and start playing that fucking thing that some people call acoustic guitar. Todays goal = at least 3 songs. Let's see how it goes.

Most depressing sheet ever:

Some work still left...

It's me again

Hi folksies, it's me again.


"Jesus is coming soon"
(As in "arriving", not "ejaculating")

And here is our beloved Jesus, setting up Pro Tools

This morning I woke up pretty well rested, had some breakfast and then played some online poker while Timo was dropping our little Jesus to the train station. After that we went jogging for 6km, I just had a shower and now I will have some lunch. After that it's time to start actually working and laying down the guitar tracks, as everything is now set. Let's see how this goes.

This one applies to me too:

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

So, this started well...

Just when Timo was leaving to get Matias from the train station I noticed that our sound card had broken down, dead, kaput. So, in addition to all the other stuff they had to go and hunt down a new sound card for us, which resulted in quite the delay. Thankfully now we have a new card (M-Audio, for those of you who are interested in this crap), and also we are switching the recording platform from Logic to Pro Tools. Matias is rebuilding our little studio now, I've changed the strings on the guitar and am basically just drinking beer and waiting. I think we will get the setup running tonight and can start laying down the tracks tomorrow. If nothing else breaks down that is, seems like everything is turning against us regarding this album. But The Intergalactic Playboys Of The Fourth Dimension will prevail!

Running order for today:

Wake up ->
Coffee, breakfast (you are here) ->
Shopping for sneakers ->
Pick up Matias->

The Eagles Of Melodic Metal have landed to the woods. Tonight we do some arranging and load our personal batteries, tomorrow Matias Kupiainen comes to hook up the gear and do some soundcheck with us, then it's time to start laying down the guitar tracks. Now I think I should have a beer and a sauna.

Feeling pretty damn good about today

The weather is beautiful, the coffee tastes great, as does the cigarette. No hangover in sight and we're soon off to start the recordings of a new album with Timo. The spirits are high indeed.

That's me and Timo today :)

The Mac is back

Which makes me a happy camper indeed. Nice to have a working computer for a change. Yesterday we went to see Judas Priest and Hammerfall at the ice hall. Timing was perfect as we arrived when Hammerfall started playing their last song of the night, "Hearts on Fire". Not a big fan of the band so I didn't mind missing most of their show.

Priest was, well... Priest. I thought it was pretty good, albeit a bit long show. The thing I remember the most about the show is the fact that Rob Halford changes clothes during the show more often than Lady Gaga. Honestly, some of the pieces were pretty damn horrid, but who am I to judge the fashion sense of the Metal God himself :)

Now I'm trying to wake up and have some coffee, soon we are Heading Out To The Highway with Mr.T, Lappajärvi rockcity is what lies in store for us for the next 3 weeks or so. I'll have some coffee and a morning cig now, later people!

Awesome saturday to you all

Hi fellows and fellowettes,

Saturday night, second last free night in a month or so for me. Tomorrow I get my mac back at last, since Mr.T was nice enough to go and pick it up yesterday. Gotta love the dude :)

We were supposed to drive to lappajärvi tomorrow, but a change of plans, instead we go and see Judas Priest and Hammerfall in helsinki ice hall and drive to lappajärvi on monday, I think it's a valid excuse :)

On monday we start working on the acoustic album, wish us luck :)

Almost forgot to post this

Someone said after the last time I posted a pic of Jallu bottle that I should get a sponsorship. Well, I didn't , but the last time I came to the bar I am at the moment when I was leaving they handes me a bag with all this crap. Officially accepted, officially Jallu

Wednesday 22:38

I guess I'll start drinking

He s back...

... The man behind the lonestar.

So far...

So far today I've woken up, had some coffee, ordered some clothes online, been rehearsing a new song we probably include on the acoustic album (my god I suck at fingerpicking, should've spent WAY more time on my classical chops back in the day...), and received an email saying that they don't have one of the shirts I ordered in my size. Of course not, that would've been too easy. Well, changed that, now I'm off to buy some cigs, and then I'll continue rehearsing and arranging.

Later fags!

Tuesday feels like monday

Because of the whole easter-crap that is.

On saturday we played in Kurikka, the show was pretty ok actually, better than I thought it would be. Some of my friends from Vaasa came to see the show, although I'm pretty sure their main motivation for coming was to play poker and get wasted. We managed to pull both of those off pretty nicely. But it was fun. Nice, albeit dangerous guys :)

On sunday me and Mr.T drove to helsinki to play do a show in On The Rocks. That one was a fucking blast. Probably the best acoustic show we've done with Timo so far. The venue was nice, the crowd was loud and there was a lot of it, and loads of friends turned up as well. Some of my friends managed to get surpringly drunk, so I was doing some work as a baby-sitter as well. Oh well, who am I to judge.

Ended up walking around Helsinki around 04am with a few friends, drinking red wine from a bottle and looking for something to eat. How fucking bohemian...

Woke up with a slight hangover on monday, maybe I haven't used up all of mine after all... Went to have a beer at Henry's Pub, then I called Matias Kupiainen, met up with him and drove to his studio to pick up one guitar I am borrowing for the acoustic recordings scheduled to start on 23rd. I am basicly free until then, but have to practise and do some arrangements of the songs still, so I can't just sit on my ass and rot. Oh well, time to have my morning coffee, followed by my morning crack...

Here we go again

Hello Fuckers and Fuckettes,

tonight is again a shownight, and so is tomorrow. This means that our dynamicduo,also know as The Intergalactic Playboys Of The Fourth Dimension will hit the road. It's been a productive week in lappajärvi, and in two weeks I'll start to lay down the actual guitar tracks for the upcoming acoustic album. Some issues to solve still, but nothing major. We demoed a few songs and actually they sound pretty good, I think this shit might actually work out.

Speaking of shit, I think I have to take one...

Friday, April 6, 2012


Does it get any better than this? 
Granted, it's 08:07 and I haven't slept yet, but I'll get to it. Jaloviina & sunny morning = epic win

More of what matters the most

It went well

Did arrangements for two songs, recorded demo vox+backing vox for one. Also took care of some other things, so all in all quite a productive day. Also had some late night drinks and "parannettiin maailmaa", meaning that we sat and talked shit for quite a while. Now to sleep, tomorrow is a new day. Songs to be written, beers to be drank.

You've been a wonderful audience, fuck you and good night!

Good morning little beavers

And by "little beavers" I don't mean underage vaginas, believe you me! This is actually a pretty good morning. I'm in lappajärvi, the weather is beautiful, hangover seems like a distant dream, spirits are high and to top it of we booked an acoustic show to Kemi, my former hometown. We've wanted to play there for 2 years now, finally we're actually gonna do it.

Now I shall have some coffee, smoke a cigarette and start laying down some guitar parts to demo a new song, which you hopefully will hear later on an album yet to be named. Take care folks, I'm off to work!


This is what we call melody-oil, the more you use it the better the melody. Not writing tonight though, just stocking up for tomorrow :)

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

The package my cock came in:

Made it to lappajärvi

Coffee and buns at the moment, doesn't get much more rock n' roll than that. Thought we'd take it easy tonight, have a sauna and watch some football (before anyone asks, no, I don't give a flying fuck about football, but I can watch it and have some beers). Tomorrow we start working. Slept really badly again so taking it easy tonight might not be the worst of ideas...

Just for the record

I didn't drink today. Well, I did have one (1) glass of white wine with the dinner, but that's it. How fucking healthy of me...

I did write a new song though, or actually reworked one older idea into an actual song. Way to go me, the day was not entirely wasted. Tomorrow to lappajärvi to do some writing and to record some demos.


Introducing a new, exciting dish from the Rock n' Roll cuisine, - The Retard Bread. Ingredients: rhye bread, sausage, ham, cheese, pasta carbonara, mustard, ketchup, roasted garlic and pepper, habanero sauce. Enjoy with a glass of refreshing mojito and crack a big fucking smile :)

Sunday, April 1, 2012


No work today, probably we should've, but no. Had a nice dinner, played some poker and I just went to buy ingredients for making some mojitos. Later sauna. Not a bad day, if I may say so :)

My phone

Decided to pull some April's Fools-crap on me last night and get so stuck I couldn't even turn it off. Had to wait for the battery to drain before I could turn it back on. Was pretty out-of-touch feeling to have no laptop and no phone. The joys of living at this day and age... Thankfully the phone works now. Laptop still dead though, have to take it to the doctor at some point...
