This post won’t make much sense. Be forewarned. So, I went out last night with workmates, we ended up in the basement of some nightclub in Mannerheimintie with weirdos, crippled people and grandmothers where shirtless guys pretended they played some cool underground music. Getting the hell out of there as fast as we could we found ourselves in one of the most expensive, fanciest places you can get in Helsinki where a fucking gin tonic costs 14 euros and where even some people dress in tuxedos. What the hell. Then there comes the moment when two upper-class “gentlemen” decide they don’t have anything better to do with their money than buy drinks for absolutely everybody, three times. So White Russian ingestion narrowed my poor judgement once more. Getting even into the V.I.P. room where “Finnish celebrities” (read: Kimi Räikkönen’s crew / who even cares?) spend their money in drinks that don’t even taste so good, etc.
Well then, my friends left and what did I do? Take a taxi and go home? No, for fuck’s sake. Again my judgement tells me it’s a good idea to go party with complete strangers in some kick ass apartment in fucking Esplanadi. So. Yeah…Barely made it home. Just woke up and going to Kontsu to Hanuripolku (for real, the street’s name is Hanuripolku) for some serious egg hunting and some Robin listening. APUA. I MIGHT AS WELL JUST DIE.
That’s how fancy I look in moments as such.

Students look out the enormous sheer glass wall of the Bauhaus Building in Dessau, 1927.
Of densely coiled layers of illusion
Each of which winds itself on the supreme insanity
That there are persons of any kind
When all there can be is mindless mirrors
Laughing and screaming as they parade about
in an endless dream.
