English as spoken by Finns

As exemplified by former prime ministers Paasikivi (1952), Jäätteenmäki (2003), and Vanhanen (circa 2006). And of course Mika Häkkinen is a classic on this front, not only for his accent but also for his demeanor.

Youtube’s upcoming location-targeted gigs

Last week I noticed an interesting feature in Youtube.

Just above the link to purchase the video’s soundtrack song was a link to an upcoming gig by the song’s artist, Sublime.

Imagine my surprise to see that Sublime was playing at the Barbican Centre — I thought they’d split up years ago.

Clicking through, it turns out the match wasn’t entirely correct (the gig’s for Sublime Frequencies Djs), but it’s still very interesting to see Youtube pulling in location-targeted gig data automatically from Songkick.
