ONE, Tampere, 21.3.2009

After the winter break, One returns this weekend at Tampere’s Tanssitalo. With Joonas Hahmo and Poliisi headlining and me and Flight taking care of the regular One sounds, it sounds like a good start to 2009. One is having only two events this spring in Tanssitalo, the second being the official summer starter on 30.5.2009. On that day Tampere will go trancey in the hands of a Armada talent from Denmark and another bunch of domestic jocks. But first – looking forward to see you this Saturday! (See the Facebook event.)

And yes, as the headline promises, here’s a 60min mix of One anthems of the upcoming spring season. We are One family.

By | Links | No Comments sells DJ Equipment with a very cheap price. Way too cheap.

Now, let’s take a closer look.

If you’re a foreign customer (so in this case not from UK), the only possibility of buying products is paying via Western Union.

You send money. Bang. The money is gone.

Here some results of small googlework:

Misc and Misc.

First the Misc news and then the Misc. stuff. Boy, I love these smart word games… :P

Misc Management website has a few minor updates, some new mixes, charts etc.

Our beloved oldskool DJ, the mastermind behind Rose Garden and Kuudes Linja (and various others…), mr. Lil’ Tony, has opened a new website called Cosmic City. Cool stuff there, check it out.

Niko recommended Dave’s Lounge podcast on his Softys blog. I’ve subscribed to that as well, but another very good chill-out cast (not independent music, though) is Chill Syndicate. Two hour sets of chill-out – and totally without voice-overs, which is good (as I’ve mentioned earlier).

New Zealand Herald listed TOP 10 songs played at the funeral. A coffin at the altar and Robbie on the speakers. Some people really know how to go with a style… eeeh…

In the end a small word about my photography project. A bit more than a month ago I started a “Project 365” which is about shooting one photo a day of your life. The main idea is to remember small things which you would have forgotten otherwise after a year. The secondary idea is to prove yourself that no matter how dull and similar basic work days sometimes are, they all have a thing or two worth remembering.
These daily taken photographs are uploaded to the Project 365 Flickr set at least once a week. Take a look.

MySpace weakness

After criticizing MySpace big time, I decided to give a try (I’m so weak, I know…).

And after browsing through some profiles I still don’t get it: What’s the point of adding dozens of contacts to one’s friends list if you haven’t ever even met or talked to these people? Or is it just so cool of having 50 celebrities as your “friends”?

Well, let’s see where this ends up. I can’t help being skeptical.
