About Me

Hi everyone! I'm Anni, an university student living in Helsinki, Finland. My major is English translation. Snail mail is awesome and I hope to get all kinds of mail from all over the world :)

Music is my passion. I don't play any instruments or sing very well, but I love listening to and getting to know about all different kinds of music. My cd collection is around 450 cd's at the moment. Other things I like are:

  • Chuck Palahniuk's books
  • going to gigs
  • equal rights
  • being green
  • chocolate
  • salmiakki and sour candies
  • all tea, especially flavoured black ones & chai
  • writing postcards
  • ad cards (the more unusual, the better)
  • funny/weird/unusual stamps
  • children's literature
  • bright colours
  • small towns and villages
  • all kinds of mail! ♥

Favorite Music

Belle and Sebastian, Sébastien Tellier, The xx, Justice, The Dandy Warhols, Fall Out Boy, Lights, Simon & Garfunkel, Janelle Monáe, Keane, Adam Lambert, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Smiths, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Air, Four Year Strong, Awesome New Republic, Röyksopp, Broken Social Scene, Au Revoir Simone etc.

A lot of Finnish bands, for example Risto, PMMP, Leevi and the Leavings, Regina, Egotrippi and Sydän, sydän.

I love teen pop and all sorts of music that is generally considered bad. The Eurovision Song Contest is my absolute favourite!

Favorite Movies

Tarantino movies, the Star Wars series, Lost in Translation, Juno, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Once, O'Horten, Singin' in the Rain, Tideland, High School Musical

Favorite Television

I mostly watch British comedy these days. The Mighty Boosh is my favourite of all time! Some other series I enjoy are Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Flight of the Conchords, Six Feet Under, Lost, Grey's Anatomy, House M.D., and crime shows.

Comment: Thanks for the fun Helsinki card and thanks for explaining the sites to me! Looks like the Finnish president lives pretty well. I hope you continue to enjoy living in Helsinki. I once moved to a huge metropolitan city (in another country) after living in the suburbs, and for the five years I lived there, it never got old. :-)

Oh yah that might be it. I never know which countries have English more or not. I was surprised that Philippines has a lot of English. Anyways I really like Survivor and Invisible Monsters. Those are my favorites. I like when the guy build a tiny house with working lights and everything, then takes it into the bathroom... Imagine someone doing that somewhere, in their home and you would never know they were doing something like that! He does leave such a twist at the end... I think you'd like Snuff too. I don't know if I enjoyed diary or lullaby that much.. I think I've read most of his books but not all.

That's a surprise! But maybe because Chuck lets it all hang out and stuff. He's pretty graphic. I like how the stories are so twisted and makes you think and is gritty. How about you? What's your favorite chuck book?

sonaa on Sep 10, 2010:

I like Chuck's books too <3
