Celebs & Idols Dying – Jussi Hakulinen, Yö, Joutsenlaulu

In the last year, especially for the last several months, it feels like not a week goes by that I read a childhood/teenage hero of mine has died! Many of them not even that old! Most recently Nichelle Nichols, Olivia Newton-John, David Warner and yesterday I learned that Jussi Hakulinen also has died. He was only 57!

Jussi Hakulinen was one of the most talented and famous Finnish song writers and musicians, and one of the founding members of Yö (Night) which is Finland’s 10th best-selling music artist of all time. He wrote and composed Joutsenlaulu (Swansong) which is one of the best loved Finnish songs ever. Joutsenlaulu to me is personally perhaps the quintessential Finnish song and probably my THE favorite Finnish song of all time.

Someone uploaded a video with both the Finnish lyrics as well as English translations of them to Youtube:

 

EDIT to add: and now I just minutes ago read that Vesa-Matti Loiri, an actor, singer and comedian and a Finnish household name just died today! He was 77.

Big Bunch Of Wallpapers

I made 16 new wallpapers yesterday, all in all! 😆 The Dynasty and The Colbys wallies I posted yesterday, and these other ten.

The newest version of Photoshop has this excellent new feature “Select Object” which makes cutting backgrounds off a breeze so far! I was playing around with it yesterday and it seems to work as well as on photograps as screencaps. I couldn’t stop trying it out on photos, so here’s a lot of wallpapers on some of my favorite subjects 😆
