other 2002 memories:

a (as always), love-mad girls after pHinn @ Yo-Talo & everywhere (sorry), Yo-talo weekends ("tää on taas tätä", indeed), friends, the lack of decent (or to that, nearly any) electro parties at Tampere, the books of James Ellroy & Philip K. Dick and about anything fringe, the shitty bathroom renovation that ran me away from my conapt for 1 1/2 months (and being treated as a half-criminal by landlord), discovering "outsider art" aka Art Brut, DJing with Oak Leaf guys and at Noscene, Mental Alaska, pHono (thanks to all nine people who paid for the ticket), sweating out at Koneisto and fighting with a mixer, Mr Velcro Fastener vs. Imatran Voima live (esp. 'Pimeyden jousi' cover), Homeisto, electroclash hype, Voltti Records, The Micragirls live, Johnny Cash, Elvis, the (slight) disappointment of The Dark Knight Returns sequel, welfare office, the continuing unemployment, asocial French & Texan people, the joy of not owning a working TV set, hilarious live talks with Seppo "Karjala takaisin" Lehto at university's public access computers, the charade of international power politics, missing out Acid Mothers Temple, Keiji Haino & Jackie-O Motherfucker gigs because of an employment course, setting up our own mailing list, extra-hot summer, receiving remixes for CTNERMX, Acidophilus buttermilk, no dead close relatives this year, the usual SNAFUs. "Another year with nothing do", as The Stooges put it. Well, not quite, but...

p H a c t :
"Wovon mann nicht sprechen kann, darüber muss mann schweigen."
-Ludwig Wittgenstein.
