Music Archive, Part XXX ~ Sammy Babitzin: Daa-da, daa-da (Columbia, 1972)

Music Archive is a series, where I write about albums or singles that have been released years ago, too long time ago to be enclosed in the “Reviews” category. Music Archive is thus forming its own subcategory under “Reviews”, even though these write-ups are not reviews, maybe not always even presentations.  They are just stories... Continue Reading →

I Am Worried About My Health Before a Trip to Japan

Today is the 19th of April 2023. A month later, on the 19th of May, I will step on board a Finnair airplane that would take me to Tokyo. Almost everything is arranged, and I should wait eagerly my trip, but I am worried. My common sense (if I have one) says that this is... Continue Reading →

One Year with X Japan and hide

On 29 October 2020 something strange happened. My life changed totally. Nothing was like before. That day was a beginning for something new. I wrote about that thing in January and thought – even though I didn’t expressed it – how long it takes until I am back in my “normal state”. People are talking... Continue Reading →
