  1. Sorry for coming here, I think US people have probably heard of this enough to get to the saturation point, but; Your foreign minister is kind of rude. He comes to the Arctic Council meeting and starts to agitate about how other big countries are such a threat to the US and all. The thing is, it's pretty inappropriate, conidering the fact Arctic Council isn't really about talking stuff like that, it's more about talking about the arctic nature and preserving the arctic areas as far as I know anything. Without this kind of tension around, more as something neutral you know. The fact they couldn't even get the final declaration kind of thingy out because of this stuff is pretty sad. And it isn't about just the Arctic Council; it's like every panel and council exists just for the reason that the US government can tell how everybody's a threat to them, while they seem to like to distance themselves from NATO, which I suppose it's around partly for defensive measurements against threats, like, if they need to continuously agitate Europe to do stuff with them against other countries, why they keep distancing themselves from NATO? From my point of view this looks pretty sad. Europe has problems enough as it is, this kind of stuff is just so confusing, like, what do they want? And could they please actually try to act less like roughnecks and more like context-understanding people? It wouldn't be so big of a problem if US wouldn't always start to do something big from time to time only to withdraw into their shell after a while and leave the mess outside. And, if you know, the US wouldn't be so darn huge a country in so many aspects. It's like, even when US won't do anything it still affects to others. It's sad but in that kind of situations it would be really appreciated if that kind of country would have people that'd try to act a bit more... thoughtfully I suppose. Sorry, just wanted to get this out of my chest. Btw, I'm not sure your average US leftist would even be considered as a leftist around here... 😊
  2. So, the effing Cyprus with sexism gets to finals but not freaking Darude!

    I'm sad for the fact naked body sells over meaningful lyrcs, but well, they really like to look away anyway.


    Well, at least Iceland got finals...

  3. Darude's 3rd in row for performing, comes pretty soon I assume.

    1. BlueSky



      Gotta say, the one's before him haven't been anything too special, though second's still a lot better than the first. I can see what kind of thing first performance was trying to go with, and it wasn't pretty...

    2. BlueSky


      Okay, it was pretty good, some stuff happens but it was still better than most of what I've seen today.

      I might be biased but still...

    3. BlueSky


      Okay, Iceland had a pretty interesting one...

    4. BlueSky


      I love it how the commentators started to joke about Eurovision becoming Swedenvision or something.

      Btw the voting's up now.

  4. Okay guys, this is the thing;

    If you want to see Darude performing on Eurovision finals, today's the day to vote for him, since it's the semi finals and he's on the 1st one. Stuff starts in about less than 15 mins.

    I dunno though how many in here are interested, but whatever. Yes, he's the one Finnish committee decided to ask to perform this year.

    No, he isn't performing Sandstorm. His buddy sings about looking away instead.


    And also, hi, I'm here again, it's been ages hasnt it?

  5. Okay, last set. From this winter, these (at least the 2 first) are actually pretty cool I think.





    1. Kiah


      Lovely photos! Thought the Way Past Cool reaction was more fitting for obvious reasons so I changed it 🙂


  6. You know what's fun;

    This song reminds me a bit of Sonic CD's Japanese soundtrack.

    It just sounds a bit similar. Not in a bad way, it's kind of curious.

  7. Hi @Kiah !

    Here's some pics, some are from this winter, some from last winter. I can try to find more of those I took last year but my archival system's a bit complicated so it might take a while... sorries. 😅

    Anyway, here's some!

    From last winter:


    This is from a stream bench. Since it doesn't really get that frozen, the snow keeps "falling" on it like that.


    This was my test how well the snow would support my weight on March. That old dog footprint on the corner can tell there's been few cold nights between that and my own footprints. It was kinda neat.


    A somewhat close picture of few snowflakes. Few of them are actually captured pretty sharply...

    1. BlueSky




      This one shows somewhat well how there was actually somewhat deep layer of snow around. Young trees look practically like branches stuck on the snow.


      This picture is a bit older, I think there's something funny with the fact how large trees are all around the somewhat urban area...


      And here's a cute bird, this time a Great tit from March.

      It was singing pretty loudly.

      In the words of Sonic

      "Long time no see buddy!"

      Your winter looks awesome btw. Very beautiful

    3. BlueSky


      Hi there man!

      Yeah, too long I'd say, I'm not even too sure how long I can stick around this time either. 😅

      It does when it snows. This December was a good one but sometimes the Christmas has been completely dark since no snow.

      Tonight there was a thick snowing and people were still shooting the rockets...

      So, more pics, these are from this winter actually.



      And here's a cute little Christmas apple; male bullfinch!


      The colours aren't the best but it's a male.

      Gee, they're still shooting when it's past the time already, they should stop at 2AM...

    4. PaulyBFromDa303


      Gorgeous. Shame though you can't stay long. Hope all is well. I wish I had as good a view as yours. We're in the midst of a blizzard too. I'll be celebrating the New Year here with y'all. No way I'm getting on the roads tonight

    5. Kiah


      Nice pictures! Thanks for sharing! We haven’t had any decent snow...yet. Wouldn’t expect anything else from this wacky Virginia weather here lol. When we do get some snow I’ll do the same and take some pictures 🙂

    6. BlueSky


      Well yeah, it's a shame, it feels like I'm ignoring my friends but life is like that sadly.

      Well @Kiah the wackiness has grown pretty usual around here too. Last summer was way hotter than usual and spring in 2017 was all over the place, it was warm, then snowing, then warm, then cold... it's crazy.

    7. Kiah


      The struggle is real trying to maintain life in general let alone with balancing friendships in the mix. It’s hard but it isn’t optional when you think about it.

      It was literally 60 degrees Fahrenheit today. Customers coming in the store with shorts on had me both laughing and shaking my head.  

    8. NikoS


      Beautiful photos,thanks buddy!

      Also, hope all is well on your end!! ^^


  8. Hiii!!!

    Guess who's back to say, well...

    Christmas went already, but still..

    Hyvää (myöhäistä) joulua ja onnellista uutta vuotta!


    I now declare this bazaar open.

    It's a fun little thing they show on TV every new year...

    1. Kiah


      Hi! Welcome back! 🙂

    2. BlueSky


      Hi to you too @Kiah ! Long time no see! 😂

      Managed to squeeze some free time, kinda funny how I managed to post that ~1 min before midnight!

      You know, it's snowing like no tomorrow and it's a bit too windy but they're still shooting the rockets like no tomorrow...

      I hope my place won't burn down.


      The snow pictures are coming btw.

      I'll just do a bit tweaking after I get my social life sorted for this night. 😊

    3. Failinhearts


      Welcome back!

    4. NikoS


      Merry new welcome year back!!

  9. Guys; I might need to be out of here for some time, yet again. Too many exercises and all that jazz. I hope I can come back around Christmas at the very least.

    So, well, do take care, I try not to get too crushed under everything.

    Human pancakes aren't that tasty anyway or so I've heard. 😄

    And the first song that came to my mind was;

    Don't read too much into it though. 😉

  10. I think I'd pass that choice. I wouldn't really find any happiness of bringing some characters I love back at the cost of getting some other character out, I'm just that kind of weird person. There're characters I like a lot, and characters that I don't enjoy quite as much, but they're nonetheless still part of this franchise anyway, and there might be even a teeny-tiny chance of someone loving some character I wouldn't be as fond of, so I wouldn't want to put my grieve out just for some other to get into exactly same situation. Plus I think characters can be improved like everyone has potential, really, if these aren't used "well enough" we have now, what are the chances the forgotten ones would be treated any better? I dunno. Not really worth the risk or is it? And seriously, I do find Silver more likeable than Sonic, from time to time the very least. Even the Pre-Reboot Archie Silver had characteristics that made him sympathetic in my eyes. For the most part at the very least.
  11. Hmm... I did have fun time while playing it. Well, there are other Sonic games that I do love more, but I think I could say I like it. I liked the fact they took steps to the direction I find more likeable than the past few games considering the story flow. And I did enjoy the fact it was quick to play and easy enough for me to actually play it, no slippery slope controls or to thin dropkill bridges. Fun playing with fast pacing. I dunno really, I enjoyed it so I do seriously think I like it. I dunno, I didn't care to start thinking about missed opportunities since I was more focused on what I got out of it already; the characters that actually took seriously their world and didn't try to break it with a sledgehammer. I dunno, maybe I'm looking for different things than some other, but well, I did find enjoyment of it. I think I like it.
  12. I do think I saw that piñata thing somewhere. It was pretty interesting alright. Though I do think piñatas are freaking dangerous even in real life, I just wonder how many times people have got hit instead of the piñatas... Well, this explains a lot of things, kind of neat idea I think, thanks for the history. 😄 I do find the characters interesting after all. I find many duck/mouse characters interesting, but anyway...
  13. Well, it wasn't about wiki, it was more about me understanding what I've read. I'm no native and all that jazz. I'm kind of self-aware like that. Next evening; You know what; there's actually this thing that's been itching my nerves for some time now, you know the stuff about Sally and Nicole and such? I've kind of started to wonder, I know it could be me just seeing stuff afterwards only because it has been pointed out later, chances are the picture wasn't even done with that thing in mind and all, which is prolly pretty much having the highest probability and all, but, this thing from Sonic Comic Origins (talking about using wikis, hehheh); I did wonder why Sally looked like that, like, disgusted (that's how her facial expression looks like to me anyway)? I dunno, it was a bit too powerfully delivered for my liking, is this just me seeing things, probably, but man, how interesting, even if it's (like it probably is) just a coincidence. Sheesh, this is kind of odd actually. ...am I having some occurring obsessions or what?
  14. Well, that was actually what I felt uncertain for. Thanks for "peer" review people. It's appreciated, I sometimes still wonder if I've got my facts straight.
  15. I just remembered one. Sadly it's in Finnish so I'll give the gist; Weatherman is asked about the weather by the journalist, he starts telling that winter's coming and first comes snow and then temperature drops, and while he's saying the temperature will go down he lowers the office chair he's sitting on without any warning, which makes the journalist to start laughing. She tries to get the news program to the end properly though. Pretty silly and innocent I think. Somehow it's just hilarious. Do question my sense of humour if you feel it's obligatory.
