Architecture in Helsinki


Trying to surpass The Snuggleups and a band singing about putting your head in icewater for almost too long is a tough job. Architecture in Helsinki did a pretty good job (although they get -6 points for an obnoxious website).

Speaking of obnoxious, here are some new pictures! Yay!

Mike vs. Tim

The Doug Fir was a pretty impressive club. Think 70s lumberjack meets 70s street pimp with a dash of hippies. It was refreshing. Mostly I enjoyed the backlit floor tiles— they blew my mind.

The weekend on the whole was pretty chaotic. I came to the conclusion that I am not good at multi-tasking different plans with different people on the same day. It’s probably better to do things with 1-2 friends at a time — anything more gets too complicated (for me) and eventually things will get messed up. I think I enjoy quality time more anyway, and that’s hard to do in a semi-large group, especially if they don’t know each other as well as you know them.

So from now on I think I will try to be better about planning things on a per-person basis instead of trying to get everyone in on the same thing. And even then, if I do try to get lots of people together, I will try to do a better job of keeping people informed.

But not all was lost. Great music and great friends at the Doug Fir, good times on the Willamette (I actually crossed the wake this time), and some dinner at Who Song and Larry’s. It was a good weekend despite the chaos. It was a fitting end to an even crazier week.

I’m not good at multi-tasking in Portland.
