MATES!! It’s been a totally wild ride after I wrote here last time. Actually I’m right now away at Surfer’s Coast, in the middle of Atlantic Ocean. We’re kinda spending our last day here and tomorrow we’re back in Finland for a Christmas trip to Kuopio and then for my parents to Oulu. We came here after celebrating Independence Day with Jonna & Marjut. Santa Cruz and Block Buster played in Henry’s Pub so we went to say hi to the guys and drank again gallons of beer. Feels like I’ve said that before, hmm…

November started with promo shootings in Lion’s mansion. We have a theme for our first single “Storm Raiders” so I was made up for Joker and Lion De La Vega dressed himself as Tonto from The Lone Rider. The session was WICKED. We had to also pop some champagne bottles for the pics – what a shame! I was thinking that I may not wash the make-ups at all because the day after the shootings it was time for Halloween Parties in the same address. :P

With my buddy Mike we promised to play some acoustics songs during the night so we gathered to my place with girls and also Larry came by. It was fun just to jam and heal my sore throat with some Diesel Liquor. The parties were as crazy as I thought they would be. Larry was blamed for bursting the tires of some guest’s car, Andy Con Tio played a bunch of awesome songs from his upcoming solo album, Mike and Lion drank till morning just to continue partying at Eden Spa nearby. FUCK YEAH! Our night was epic as well but I’ll get back to it later!

The day after that we spent for furniture shopping in new mall called Ideapark in Oulu. The place was huge and we bought some stuff there and wanted to celebrate the new look of our home so we drove back to city with Miia and bought a couple of Dolce&Cabbana shades, some classic records from Antikvariat, few hats and finally big burgers in Amarillo. What a blast – that’s how shopping should always be!!

We were about to have rehearsals next morning but heard that Matt was in a car accident. Fortunately nothing happened and only thing that had suffered was his car. Well we trained later that day and Wexx was smiling like a fuckin’ Joker because he had again bought new sneakers, haha! After the rehearsals I drove Mike to a front of some bar but I’m proud of myself that I didn’t go with him, we had some songwriting to do at the next day with Lion.

Larry Hollywood will produce our debut single, Storm Raiders and we totally nailed the demo version of it within a few hours. We popped a couple of champagne bottles and just started working – voila! With GHS we arranged pre-listen parties of More Than Meets The Eyes album in our training house later that week. I was hanging around with Pizza & Lång and we were about to hit the book release situation of Jyrki Korpua’s new one when I got a call from one of my race car friends.

The fuckin’ album parties were the wildest ones this year and I also announced that we’re launching GHS Racing Team with a new karting car and me as a pilot. I’m so stoked about that!! Yeah the parties – we bought about 200 beers and other drinks but they weren’t enough at all so after playing all our new songs to the best guys, it was time to take a cab again to Huikka Nightclub. What a night, gotta say!!

Before that night I had suffered from a fever and super sore throat. I took a couple of days off and bought a steering wheel with the pedals for PS3 Gran Turismo 6 from Verkkokauppa. It felt great just to relax and play also a super nice adventure called Machinarium – it’s the fuckin’ best point and click game for a looooong time!

Yeah after the album release parties it was time for Miia to get rid of her beautiful rasta hair for a change. She’s had them for several years so she just wanted her scalp to get some rest so Jonna, who is a hairdresser in M-Room, did cut the rastas and operated the new haircut for my gf. It took about five hours so we laid around on the sofa with Mike and watched a couple of great movies, Don Hemingway and Control, starred by Ray Liotta. Both were awesome and we also shared some beers and candies while the girls concentrated to haircuts. Sweet!

The next weekend we had a gig again in Bysis for underage guys. I styled myself pretty early in the morning, ate breakfast with some beers and great music. We did a check on time and sat on the stairs outside with Tiger, just shared some thoughts and smoke few cigarettes. The gig was okay; we had an opener from South Ostrobothnia, a punk band called RASKAS RAPPIO.

Miia’s sister Laura stayed some nights in our apartment so we took a ride back home and opened the bottles. Lion came also by, suddenly it was already midnight. The rest of the night we did spend again in Huikka which was again full of great music, vodka batteries, she-males and wicked company.  Next day we spent relaxing and headed out for a little night walk to witness Valoa Oulu -fest in a huge park area. They had arranged all kinds of lights to make the whole place unbelievably atmospheric.

I met also one of my childhood friends after a loooooong time. He’s nowadays living in Southern Sweden but stays in Oulu few times a year. It was super relaxing to chat in Kuluma Café Corner and drink some beer. We continued the night in Kauppuri 5 with the burgers, later in Winebar Vox and then headed to see a movie, Interstellar, which is a sci-fi, Matthew McConaughey in the main role. I love all those time travelling shit so this one was the right choice, definitely.

My gf told me to take one-day-break from the studio because she had a surprise for me. Well FUCK YEAH, she had! She came home and immediately served an ice cold beer and a huge class of white wine. Then it was time for my pre-birthdays. She had bought me a perfume by Police and her family gave me a gift card for SP-Electronics which is also a music store in Oulu, how sweet! :) But the night went on with a surprise dinner in a lovely cabinet for just a two of us in a fine-dining restaurant, Fransman. We ordered champagnes and foods and then came the big one – Mike Rockberry walked in and they played together the Bryan Adams’ song Heaven which is kinda “OUR SONG” with Miia. Definitely the best Birthday gift of all time.

I’ve always loved my idols no matter what. Steen1 was one of my biggest rap idols when I was a kid and I was delight that I could work with him, even for a couple of songs for Lion’s upcoming album. By the way – that record is gonna be HUGE, it’s full of catchy melodies and super great lyrics. You can read more of that from Lion’s own blog (http://liondelavegaenglish.blogspot.com.es/). I nailed my parts pretty quick and drove home to pack because it was time for some SERIOUS SNOWBOARDING and winter sports for that weekend…

They arrange the Nordic Opening of Winter Sports in Ruka always during the final weekend of November. About 2pm I felt again the familiar feeling of snowboard under my feet. The endless rain of Oulu had changed to the total winter season in Ruka, Kuusamo. The neon lights of some pretty cheap burger bar guided us for a meal after few hours of free riding.

I’ve suffered some headaches recently – always during the weekends. It must be migraine. I felt that fuckin’ shit again but we’d planned with my buddy Andy that we’d meet him and his new girlfriend later that evening. They had just arrived so we drank champagne in sauna with Miia and tried to relax in our pretty cabin. Didn’t help.

Because I’m a party maniac, I decided to hit the bars with the guys no matter what. And actually it was one of the funniest nights of this fall. Andy and Saara picked us up with their taxi and we drove to the alpine village for some beers in Hanki Bar and later some more drinks in Rukanhovi Nightclub. EPIC!

# Miia Sofia going bananas :P

Oh and the opening was great for Team Finland. Or should I say the greatest after a decade full of traipsing. Niskanen won the men’s competition and they all did fine after all. Haha, we tried to heal our hangovers with hot Mint Chocolates and actually it did help! The few sweet days in the Southern Lapland were super relaxing - I didn’t even mind driving back to Oulu after the full Monday boarding in total darkness because we bought new snowboarding shades for both of us. They’re cool as fuckin’ hell – check my Facebook for the pics!!

The week after that was full of music stuff. We finished our album in the home studio of Timmy Lover and after that I drove to Lion’s mansion to play bass guitar with Andy Con Tio to De La Vega’s solo songs. Hilarious! Before leaving Oulu for the rest of the month, the guys from the office had arranged a movie evening for us so we bought some popcorns and drinks and watched first a movie at the office and then another one in Plaza. After that we shared nightcaps in Rooster Café nearby. Gotta say that the burgers and the fuckin’ nachos there were HUGE – recommendings!! Before leaving I had to return the favor so I bought four bottles of champagne and some cakes for the guys at the office and we ate and drank all of them during an afternoon.

Oh and the BEST NEWS!? We got engaged with Miia in Costa Tequise. After the perfect morning surf we headed to a legendary El Maestro restaurant to celebrate my fuckin’ Birthday and ordered the table full of tapas’ with about hundred euros. And of course the beers and wines and stuff. Well suddenly there’s a perfect moment when Heaven starts to blast from the speakers there. I told earlier that Miia did sing that song as a present for me in Oulu…

…I had been thinking that I would propose her during our anniversaries next year but the moment was too perfect and I just didn’t want to wait anymore so I told that I don’t have any ring right now but I just want to get engaged right there at that moment. And SHE SAID YES and made me the happiest guy of the whole planet. HOW COOL?!

The staff of El Maestro saw both of us crying for happiness so they probably guessed what was going on. We were the only customers at the moment there and the owner of the restaurant threw us a short speech and brought some champagne. We ate and drank like FUCKIN’ ROYALS and called all our friends and families and shared the good news.

After leaving the best restaurant of the world we bought more champagne and chocolate for the late night beachwalking. We sat there together in the dark and ran together to the waves. Miia lost her lip piercing but we didn’t care. She danced for me there on the sand and that was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

When we did run out of sparkling it was time to hit the bars. Miia bought “a real Gucci watch” from some salesman. It was hilarious to watch how they talked about the price and how tough my girlfriend can be, haha! Next morning we drove to buy some breakfast but Miia was too tired to eat so I just ate a royal tapas meal again there on our sunny balcony. How perfect life can be!?

We lived in an apartment that was pretty much art deco style, kinda similar with the architecture style in old Miami Oceandrive. Miia is studying to graduate as an architect and we both love all kinds of arts so we really wanted to see the stylish home and gallery of a local celebrity, architect and artist, Cesar Manrique. Fuckin’ A – that place was worth seeing! It’s full of palms and small hallways and atmospheric as hell. You can see more from my Instagram pictures under my profile (vinnyolavi).

Next day we surfed again but this time I did hurt my knee and my back a little bit. It was supposed to be a sunny day but suddenly it started raining. It was time to take a car and drive all the way to Playa Blanca just to chill and shopping here and there. God damn, the destiny was there with us. From some jeweler’s we found the perfect 18kt golden rings which we immediately bought before driving back for the most amazing self-made tapas dinner with a streamed hockey match.

Every Sunday there’s a huge marketplace in Tequise where they sell all kinds of stuff which you could imagine and again it was full of stir but actually it was a disappointment this year. Whatever, it was supposed to be the night at the Gran Casino and later in La Palmera which is a surf bar nearby Tequise central.

Casino was also a HUGE disappointment, it was way smaller than an average slot hall in Oulu and when we finally arrived to La Palmera about 8pm the whole crowd was wasted as hell. I mean totally wasted and it wasn’t even close to midnight!! We drank a couple of beers and drove back to our apartment, next time we’ll drink our heads off before hitting those fuckin’ parties!!

I’ve made one conclusion here. Spanish people are the worst drivers in the whole world. Or at least the SLOWEST. If the speed limit is…uhm let’s say 110km on the freeway, they drive possibly 90km per hour – never faster. I mean NEVER! Personally I’d never drive under the speed limit so I’ve been a wreck here, haha! :D

So the next day we drove again through the freeway because we’d made a plan to spend the day for shooting promo pics for my upcoming solo project. The weather was just fine and we celebrated the perfect day and well-made shootings with a dinner and drinks in Café La Ola, Puerto Del Carmen. I’ve never eaten a meet paella as tasty as that one. They had a fuckin’ swimming pool and shisha sofas there so I recommend that place to everyone.

The rest of the week was full of surfing & sports again. One of the highlights was a lunch in Galeon near the beach Play De Jablillo. The Italian restaurant offered anything with a full atmosphere straight from Rome. Pastas and pizzas were fuckin’ HUGE! When the darkness started to fall I still had an idea – climb to a 323-meters-high Montana de Tahiche.

The trip was a bit challenging because the sun had just come down and actually there wasn’t any trail to the top. So we had to fight our way through rocky ledges. That was also a little test for us and kinda metaphoric, if you realize what I mean! Well we made it and got some a-quality pictures from the viewpoint to all around the island. Coming down was even trickier because of those little rolling stones LOL and it was completely dark when we finally made it back to our car. What a way to spend an evening!

I told you about the new karting team GHS racing. I had to train a bit before heading back to Finland so I literally did rent a track for practices. Lap times were okay but there’s lot to learn before the season finally starts. We rounded also in La Santa cause it’s another famous surfing spot in the place. It was full of cyclists cause a local sports center was located near.

Oh, I was a bit upset in the morning cause the mothafuckin’ neighbors woke me up like 6am in the morning and I kinda lost my nerves. Writing this has been uhm, therapeutic I guess! And all my dear readers, I’m wishing you the best Christmas and even better New Year 2015!! I’ve listed some entertainment I’ve watched recently, there below…

# Vinny Olavi # Groupie High School # Vincenzo Olavi # GHS Racing # Knockout Cocktail # Vinny's Playground # Modern Day Cowboys # nti Kaleva & the Mistake # Los Gran Artistas

The Jacket (I’ve mentioned thousands of time that I love all that time travelling shit. This one tells a story of a war veteran who’s locked to a mental hospital without a reason. They push the inmates to small boxes with straitjackets on to “heal” them. That leads to an adventure through times.)



Parker (Jason Statham as a role of many cartoons and tv-series. A criminal group decides to terminate their “leader” and leaves him to a death. Well you can guess that it isn’t over and Statham goes after the scumbags with guns and explosive. MUST-SEE for the action freaks!)



Camp 14 (One of the most interesting books I’ve red recently. You can get a sneak peek behind the curtains of North Korea and a glimpse to their prison camps. Creepy but have to read.)



Impact (A novel by Douglas Preston is the second part from Wyman Ford Trilogy. Because I also love the space stories, this one was an excellent choice for the holiday. It’s a thriller but also a sci-fi and an adventure story. Don’t think anything - just read and relax!)  

Blended (This one is a romantic comedy. Which I hate. There’s Sandler and Barrymore together with their fuckin’ kids in Africa and they fall in love. The only reason I watched this crap was the fact that I was in a plane and the battery of my Samsung was down and I had already red all my surfing magazines. Don’t EVER watch this one!!)
