How awesome is this song? Very awesome. And the band name? :)
In a newsletter of the World Design Capital 2012 Helsinki I read the following and I fully agree:
Cycling Makes Cities Work
Here’s the fact: Without cycling there cannot be real urban city culture. This is why several projects of WDC Helsinki 2012 are aimed at making the Helsinki area an even better cycling environment for all, children, youth and working adults. Exhibition center Laituri’s Fiilari exhibition (12.6.-4.8.) offers a wide variety of cycling related information. Recently opened “Baana” provides a new route for exclusively cycling/walking/jogging from Ruoholahti area to city center. Baana is yet another example of Helsinki’s desire to renew and improve its cycling routes. We love cycling.

I have seen Dave Kull live a couple of times, I love his voice AND his acoustic cover of ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’. Enjoy.
The other day I went to a reading and interview with Obama’s sister Auma Obama. It was a fun and moving evening. Of course, after this, I plan on reading Auma Obama’s book!
‘A moving account by Auma Obama about her life in Africa and Europe, and her relationship with her brother, Barack Obama.
Auma spent sixteen years studying and living in Germany, moved to England for love, and gave birth to a daughter there. The tension between her original and chosen worlds and cultures was a constant challenge, and eventually Auma returned to Africa and worked to support young men and women in shaping their futures.
In And Then Life Happens, her candid and emotional memoir, Auma shares her own story as well as recollections of and experiences with her famous brother, who says about their first encounter: “I hugged her, we looked at each other, and laughed. I knew right then that I loved her.”
