Now during the evening I've been playing some poker, but had to stop as I was running like shit, being sucked out from left and right. And really, if a guy calls a 4bet preflop, who of you would put him on a J5o????
After that I opened a Lonkero (yeah yeah, shouldn't drink while sick, blah blah, go fuck yourself) and started listening to some music, and damn, the new Anssi Kela album is pretty effin' good! Who would've thunken? I mean, ten years ago, back in the day, this dude released an album that was a huge hit in Finland, selling multiple platinum. And god did I hate it! It was (and still is) so fucking bad. Then the success gradually faded until no one really cared anymore, his last album before this sold something like 4 000 copies, which is kind of a downfall considering that his first album sold 150 000+. The guy wasn't really a household name anymore, and it seems like he too went "Fuck it" and did something that he wanted to do. Apparently that is VERY 80's sounding album and goddamn, I have to admit I like it. I will NEVER like his hit album, I still think the songs were terrible, but here they are not. They are pretty fucking catchy. Granted, some of the lyrics can be quite naive, but I think it's kind of a point here as well, they're not great poetry, but they work. I salute you Mr.Kela, well done Sir, well done indeed!
Aaand I went on rambling about a Finnish artist that majority of my readers has never even heard about :) But what the heck, it's my blog, and that's what I was listening to right now, so what the hell. Try to endure :)
I tried finding some other song to link here than the one that has been all over the radios here now, but apparently there are no others in Youtube yet, so here you go if you're interested, or a Finn who somehow has managed to avoid this song (and let's face it, the chorus is awesome and catchy as fuck:):
I also think it's worth mentioning that the guy sang and played EVERYTHING on the album himself, aside from one saxophone solo. That's pretty impressive in my books.
