Early this year I was asked by my then-fiancee Ella (dodostad) if I wanted to collaborate with her in the next Team Pärvelö project: a collection about lesbians in history. I knew without thinking too much that my answer was yes, of course. When I thought of what I wanted to write with regards to women in history, I immediately thought of my religious studies background. What if our story went back to what many believe to be the beginning of History? What about a story about Adam and Eve?
This post is going to be about unpacking this story with all of the academic biblical bullshit and separating what precisely is backed up in myth and conversation (while being as lazy about sourcing and such as I can) and showing precisely how much was my own storytelling flavor. Of course I also don’t want to show you too much and ruin the story for you. Please support Ella and me, and Team Pärvelö and buy a copy of Lepakkoluola. There are a lot of fantastic stories in there.
See the full footage here: Winston (kitty) takes care of Zeke (puppy)
"Zeke just got home from the vet — being allergic to certain grasses, he broke out in hives and they gave him steroid and benadryl shots. This is Winston, loving and taking care of him"
A cats purr vibrates at a frequency that promotes bone health and aids in healing. So the kitty is probably trying to purr him better.
I had a fun chat this weekend too with an American dude who came to our Love panel, where I mentioned how welcoming and sweet the Finnish art community has been to me and he just nodded and said “YEP THAT’S FINNS FOR YOU.” When I asked him if he had the same experience I told him about how the Canadian community can be a little clique-y and he said “yes, Finns are just super open and welcoming to their cliques.”
Happy sigh, oh Suomi.
WILL DO SWEETIE, I’ll type it all up just for you. I’m gonna have to figure out what is actually a good place to organize powerpoints.
Also our Tracon panel about Christine Loves’ work was really fun. I can do a write-up or something with the power point if people care but you should all just play the games instead.
BACK FROM TRACON. Thanks to my visitors and lovely new friends <3 I wish I’d gotten more time to just hang around, darn art tables.
Come see our program about Christine Love’s games on Sunday 11am @ Tracon!
This panel takes a look at the visual novels created by a Canadian indie game developer Christine Love. Love is best known for her original work Digital: A Love Story and Analogue: A Hate Story which explore the themes of human and computer interaction in an alternate timeline that begins in the 1980s and expands into the distant future. If you are interested in stories about AI’s, feminism and dystopian futures, you will most likely find yourself in love with Love. The program is spoiler free!
It’s going to be very professional!! Really! Maybe! (also we will be selling art stuffs at the Artist Alley all weekend!)
I’ve been too busy getting my shit together for Tracon to post much, so please come see us this weekend so ALL OF MY EFFORT WILL BE WORTH IIIIIIITTTT
COME BUY MY STUFF AT TRACON ARTIST ALLEY TABLE 62!!!! YES!! I will also have other things besides the pictures I posted up there! Wow!
A Canadian travel advisory about American Police. TL;DR being that our country is acknowledging a corrupt Police system in the reports that they’ll search peoples’ cars and just pocket their cash without a warrant or any legal right.

My personality type is: INFP (Healer)
I actually did both tests and also got ISFJ (Protector) but I feel like INFP seems closer to me.
INFPs focus much of their energy on an inner world dominated by intense feeling and deeply held ethics. They seek an external life that is in keeping with these values. Loyal to the people and causes important to them, INFPs can quickly spot opportunities to implement their ideals. They are curious to understand those around them, and so are accepting and flexible unless their values are threatened.
