  1. Let's see. Fiorentina, HFLC/Keto (e.g. confessions of a former vegan), how to polish my shoes (the guy is an artist), electric cars, PragerU, tech stuff… But right now I'm preparing for the Grand Prix of gravel.

    No introduction needed, but why does he sing about my life?

    Rammstein has too many songs I like to pick favourites. I believe I haven't linked these before.

    This one's missing? Duck metal.

    He reminds me of someone who used to stare at me from the mirror. The best intentions, the not-so-spectacular results. His decision to refrain from something he knows would be past his abilities is disheartening, yet also the only logical solution. I love him.

    Willberg made his first recording in about 1663, but was dormant for a long time until 2014 when he found the producer Mikko Mattila Matti Mikkola (Bl**dy h*ll!!!) and released an album (Lyhyenä hetkenä and Tällä kadulla being the highlights), which was a huge critical success and probably also sold quite well. He'll make another comeback in 2080s. No, I wouldn't say male duets (or any kind of duets) are more common here than anywhere. The Loiri & Edelmann one had a backstory in a movie where they played father and son. Since I'm already posting, why not add few more.

    Few from a more distant past (although the first admittedly is from the last decade, but it sounds older).

    I remember lending my copy of the freshly released album 'Vision Thing' to a workmate of mine, who promptly returned it and inquired me since when I've been contemplating suicide.

    Loiri is sui generis, a Renaissance man. Finnish champion in water polo and handball, played also football for a season at national top level – always a goalie. You see, Vladimir Beara denied a penalty in Helsinki Olympic Games final, when Vesku was in an impressionable age. Not that much in absolute terms, but anyway. Uuno Turhapuro is indeed a totem animal of many a Finnish man. Very few are able to pinpoint the exact barley field used to create a bottle of vodka or smell the type of sausage displayed on shop window, through it. Those of delicate nature are now not advised to google images. In later decades he's been more famous for more serious roles in over seventy films, the earlier humorous ones included. A sample from a Eighties humour show – English subs. As a teenager I understood nothing about Loiri's early Eighties recordings of Eino Leino's poems. Now I do. Then again no one wrote Finnish like Leino did. About a decade ago, by the time of this recording below, he came close to dying, yet survived and lost seventy kilos of weight getting his act together. This was somewhat of a hit. His voice is very recognizable and it's a favourite for impressionists. There's even one who only mimics Loiri.
