The 25th Anniversary Performance of “The Phantom of the Opera” was recorded live, on October 2nd, at the Royal Albert Hall. It was then shown on big screen - for example in Finland it was in selected movie theaters on the 26th and 27th of October 2011. It was shown in Tampere only one time, on the 26th but in Helsinki (capital city of Finland) it was shown on 26th and ALSO for the second time on the next day. If I would live in Helsinki, I would have gone seen it twice!

Halloween is coming

Halloween is just around the corner. In many year I've been thinking I should dress up but the whole idea then has flatten down somehow... I have had this plan to dress up but the next problem was what should I dress? Gore bloody nurse always seem to work on people but then it came to me that it would be cool to dress up like Natalie Portman as the Black Swan in the movie "Black Swan" - black tutu and all.

I looked up for some photos from her outfit and makeup:

Let's see will it happen this year. Now I'm amusing myself with baby halloween costumes. I accidentally found them I'm not keen on babies or children in general but this is just so fucking hilarious. Not that cute but just so very hilarious.
