One of the best experiences I had in Helsinki (and on the whole trip) was eating at this newly opened traditional organic “old school Finnish” restaurant run by Ryan and his crew. Everyone there was super friendly in addition to clearly being passionate about reviving the traditional ways of eating in Finland. We had the meatballs with mashed potatoes, pickles and mushrooms and it one of the best meals I’ve eaten in months. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
p.s. made an ass of myself today trying to explain my French name from French literature to a French guy who asked me what I knew about French literature but then didn’t understand my response.was unsure if I was the dummy or if he was the dummy in the scenario, funky stuff.
Being interrupted while working on a song or writing music is without exception incredibly jarring emotionally to the point of causing actual physical tension/pain, in addition to throwing off the creative process and screwing with everything in general.
Being self conscious when you’re safe space is invaded is the worst, especially if the subject you’re dealing with is emotional. Please please please remember that when people around you are practicing music. (And probably other things, this is all just personal experience I’m acting on.) If someone wants to share, they probably will, but in my experience being forced to share my work prematurely or when I’m not expecting it results in me abandoning the song altogether just because I was so shaken up.
But for real. Don’t do it. Don’t even knock on the door. Unless you know the person is cool with being interrupted, just leave them alone and come back later.
I leave for 7 measly days and the internet leaves me behind. Beyoncé, Heartbleeds, what next?
