A new phone or a new camera

I want to buy a new phone to take pictures with, but then again, maybe I should stay with my old piece of crap and just buy a camera to take pictures with. Then again there’s apps like Instagram I would like to start using.

My iPhone owner friends have been raving about it for years now. And now it’s on android as well and I really like android more than iPhone. I actually had to try Instagram so I downloaded it on Kim’s phone and created an account.  Not much pics yet, just this pic of my friend J.:

I really like Instagram so I might have to get a new android just for that. With what money, I have no idea. I’m still stuggling with job stuff, my electric wheelchair has been in repair for over a week and I haven’t really had any interest in going to job interviews with my manual one. I hate it when technology fails me in life!

Anyway, I hope I will get to borrow my parents’ camera for the trip to Norway and Europe.

Which reminds me, not much time left for our trip to Norway. The camp is for young adults with OI, so I expect to meet some other sisters and brothers of short stature! There’s some people I know already like Salla and Betti from Finland and Ingunn from Norway (who I’ve never really met) and Stephanie from Belgium (who I met a few years back in Finland). It’s going to be so awesome, I’m going with one of my best buddies, Noora, and well, we are quite a duo:

 

That was from last summer’s Ruisrock, I had my hot broken thigh bone and the lobster leg cast. I wish I could go this year as well, but I think my accounts balance forbids me such things.

I need to get my hair more blond before the trip. That’s kinda our thing, being two hot blond midgets on wheels. And sharing things. No more comments on that one.

 


About the Interrail again

We were planning again for our trip in August. Originally we were going to end the trip in London in the South West 4, because my friends live there and it would be super cool. Then we started to search for other cool festivals during those two weeks we sail around Europe and we found the Zürich Openair 2012 and  Pukkelpop 2012  which both would be very cool. If we wanted to, we could do them both actually. What is so cool about them is that we found them using last.fm’s recommendations based on my music taste. I have been scrobbling my songs since 2006 so there’s a lot of data about my listening habits. Me and Eric have very similar tastes, we have super compatibility. Both of the festivals have Lykke Li, who Eric really likes. She was supposed to perform in Flow last year, but she cancelled on the same day. In Pukkelpop there would be Jamie Woon too, we really liked his gig in Flow. And Billy Talent, I really like them too.

And it would be a great round trip if we’d go to both, we could go from Barcelona to Valencia, then Rome and end up in Belgium for the weekend. Then the next week we could do maybe Amsterdam, Paris and end up in Zürich for the weekend for the Zürich Openair. Two festivals plus hundreds of train miles could be tiring! That would mean no London, but who cares, we have both been to London already!

PS. I finally added my last.fm charts to my blog. There’s my most listened songs of the week on the right. At the moment there’s Loreen’s Euphoria as number one, of course because of the Eurovision contest! It’s a great song and I knew she would win.


All the Music I listen

I have recorded most of the music I have listened since 24th April 2006 on my last.fm account. Luckily Spotify scrobbles the songs I listen there too.

Some conclusions:

Okay, enough about that.

Does anyone have any recommendations for me?


In love with Angus & Julia Stone

I recently started to listen to Angus & Julia Stone and I am absolutely loving this song:

Angus & Julia Stone – For You

I think I have been a bit melancholic anyway the few past weeks and listening to music like this does not help! I think these periods always come to me in the darkest time of the year. Could be hormones too, my stomach has really hurt for the last 24 hours, last night felt like somebody was stabbing me. Nice job for sharing this on my blog, but, whatever. I don’t really like to be moody and emotional. I have quite a few times sobbed here about how much I miss my friends in Helsinki. And I miss Helsinki. It’s understandable I guess, I live in another country and I don’t even have any more credits to call to Finland. I had to ask my brothers girlfriend today on Facebook to ask my mom to call me.  🙂 Everyone says I’ll get used to it and I don’t doubt that. Just takes a while and a few bottles of red wine I guess. I am glad that I have good friends here too.

Wow, that voice.

Admiring,

Ida


Sponsumer

I bumbed in to Sponsume, a crowdfunding site, some time ago on Facebook but didn’t really get into it that much. Now it popped in to my Facebook feed again and I checked out some of the projects they had. Sponsume in their own words:

Sponsume offers a brand new way of exploring innovative ideas and helping turn them into reality.

We are a funding platform where creative people sell perks and rewards to fans in order to fund their project. We do not provide loans or investments. Instead fans make their favourite project happen by buying its rewards – and creators always retain 100% ownership of their project.

Sponsume is open to all creative and innovative ventures, big or small, in a wide variety of areas: film, theatre, photography, dance, social enterprise, new technologies, gaming, transmedia, fashion, sport, festivals, music, journalism, gastronomy, animation, publishing…

Of course this is all on the supporters risk (“Sponsume is a platform and project owners are fully responsible for delivering the promised rewards.”) but hey, I like the idea. And I like to believe good about people. So I watched some of the projects and this one seemed cool:

I like to do spontaneous things. Buying an album that hasn’t been made yet, from an artist I have never heard a song from is one of those things… And she’s Scottish!

Kanye West‘s opening scene, they had so cool ballerinas!

I was a great gig!


How to fit a life to a suitcase?

I feel like time is going so fast! I am flying on the 19.9. through Copenhagen to Aberdeen. My studies begin on the 20th day and I’m so excited. I met yesterday some other girls who are moving there too! Really nice people, it’s comforting to know there are people who know what I mean when I miss salty liquorice. I should start sorting out all the stuff I’m going to take with me. I have that ear surgery on the 1st of September, yay, I’m going to hear again. Good, because I am totally in love with Hurts.

I feel this song.

The loverless nights, they seem so long,
I know that I’ll hold you someday.
But until you come back where you belong,
It’s just another lonely Sunday.
