My today's Flickr stats: 1.010 call me a contact, 500.000+ views on my pics, 670 unread mail.

1.010 contact viewers and nobody to sponsor me a pro account, which I've been observing after mine expired a few months ago ;) (And no, if you're intelligent enough to read my blog I don't want you to sponsor it!!!)

Instead of aiming for the magical million views milestone I think I'll scale down. Actually a million views shouldn't be too difficult nowadays. Flickr is hugely popular, just post whatever (especially x-rated whatever) on continuous fire and post it to as many pools as you can, et voilá just in a month and a half.

Flickr was essential in my coming out years ago, a sudden paradise island of quality trannies forming a community. Now it's the Manila waste dump where one can occasionally find something nice. To advance the message of Tranny Freedom and Fun I took the task of documenting - okay, at least trying to! - my whereabouts in a diary format (ok, a byproduct of selfishly posting my pictures all over and get masses of fans calling "Amazing!", "You're so beautiful!", "urhot got msn?"). Now I think I've done my part. Maybe I'll change it to a portfolio of my best portraits. Maybe I'll even set up my pro photo studio gear and take a few shots.

Actually taking a more closed look at photography again could be interesting. I still haven't read the manual of my Nikon D200 I bought over two years ago! I used to teach photography and b/w printing at my University...

If teh internets is all about peer content creation while majority of net users anyway still are consumer couch potatoes, why do the artists need to pay the bill?

Another annoying thing btw is if I wanted to put my huge amount of boy-pictures online I should buy another account. Why not be able to have a single repository of content and then being able to publish different views for different audiences?

Sorry Flickr but I'll add to global downturn and not renew my pro account. Which btw has gotten more expensive during the years. I always thought there are economies of scale in teh nets?

Valerie's 1st theorem of web 2.0 : as the user base of a social content sharing web site grows big enough to support actual business model, the original content- and community creating core users start to get fed up.

Happy Holidays!

Slightly belated Happy Christmas time to all!!!

In 2008 many things have been going on all the time, lots of changes in my life (again) but 2009 theme looks like building stability. Maybe I'll be able to write more often and keep in touch with all you friends better. *muah*

(Today, I've been mostly lying in bed with fever. Doh.)

I'm gonna start the fight?

Why is it that everybody describes me with this link: Pink: So What


Ha! I'll just write this funny googlestorming instead of putting any of my real thoughts down:

Got utterly annoyed reading Cross Dresser #1 the Pope himself, God's chosen Man in a Dress declaring fight against homo- and transexuality is as important as protection of the environment.
While googling around for a humour picture of Pope dressing in a cross aka cross-dressing for my forum post I came up with a seemingly interesting blog by a 20sh Helsinki girl. Haha she's the same ice queen I've met several times in DTM whos head-in-the-arse "I must be the most handsome hetero in the bar" boyfriend is groping my wife's arse (and surely others') at every possibly chance. Last time I got enough and was going to make an issue but my beloved wife changed her mind that something had happened so I was left without evidence.


I so hate those types coming to gay bars and 1) thinking they can behave like they were in their regular hilly-billy pub 2) totally incapable of even imagining a heterosexual tranny, and yes, that gorgeous girl you're fancying is actually with him, and thank you, go back were you crawled out from! Well we've had several hilarious nights observing that self-conscious couple making such a loser joke out of themselves it's almost ok.

Finland got yesterday it's 3rd Nobel Prize as our ex-president Martti Ahtisaari received the 2008 Nobel Prize for Peace in Oslo. I feel happy and proud for that. He is propably the most underestimated Finn ever, my (previous) opinions included. When he was president we had plenty of jokes like "Ahtisaari is the only president you can see from Moon" - let's face it, he is huge and not the most handsome of world politicians. He came outside party circles as a black horse and won elections big time. He was claimed to be populist, disregarding our country and inclining to business as he spent much time traveling around world doing international politics and promoting Finnish companies. Disregard for home field ultimately hit him as his party came up with another candidate for next elections. Rumour goes he got fed up with this and thus decided not to continue as a president. Good for the rest of the world I say, as he has worked tremendously for solving crisis around world.
It's funny how Russia is very sour of his prize, no official recognizion so far and all main papers just barking bullshit critic. They are still sour about Balkans where Ahtisaari helped produce a plan for the indepence of Kosovo from (Russian ally) Serbia. Today's Pravda: "When the Finns blocked his second presidency, they probably were spared of sharing fate of rest of the world caused by Mr. Ahtisaari."
Err WTF? Attack of Russia? Putin will nuke the world because Norwegians gave Nobel to him? Balkans taught me a Russian lesson, we almost ended up boxing with my then-best cordial Russian friend about the issue. A Ph.D. ready to take Kalashnikov and fight for the Nato oppression there, nothing else ever happened, just American propaganda. I'm actually worried about Russia because the country has gone only much worse ever since when it comes to democracy.


Today I'm surrounded by a military camp. This morning getting out of my house to work a sergeant with attack riffle stopped me "Sorry Sir (sic!) road is closed, there's a mine field. You need to turn and go other way." Now how often does your day start like this? Ultimately they gave in and I got to go to work. I'm terribly afraid the reality of their training suffered from pulling off the enormous mine-sweeping truck and watching as a bloody civilian coupé sped right through their minefield. Hey, it's my road, get off or I will drive into your camouflage tent.
Or worse, put my military uniform and attack you tonight! :P

There's only two types of people in the world
The ones that entertain, and the ones that observe
Well baby, I'm a put-on-a-show kind of girl
Don't like the backseat
Gotta be first

I'm a like the ringleader, I call the shots (Call the shots)
I'm like a firecracker, I make it hot
When I put on a show...

Went with Tita to Britney's Circus album release party on Wednesday. On circus theme there were magicians and girls on five feet legs around. Got free CD & poster. Party was actually pretty lame but had fun anyway. I felt we were about only ones dressed for the occasion (plus a bunch of girlies dressed as Britneys, we instantly clicked!). Got a weirdo fan trying to pick up, summoned staff to throw him out. Also very very by chance met Rach from UK, nice to see you & get in touch if you ever come again to the cold LGBT capital of Nordics!

Many many things have happened but I haven't written anything. I'll try to be nicer and catch up. I'm feeling happy!

Britney: Circus

I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break
I'm like a performer, the dancefloor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

All eyes on me, in the center of the ring
(Just like a Circus) (Uh. Uh.Uh-huh)
When I crack that whip, everybody gonna trip
(Just like a Circus) (Uh. Uh. Uh-huh)
Don't stand there watching me, follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor
(Just like a Circus) (Uh. Uh. Uh-huh)
