Walk the streets of Helsinki where Tom walked!

A unique opportunity to follow the artist’s steps through the years and also understand how Finland has changed to be one of the most liberal countries of the world when we now celebrate of 100 years of independence in 2017.

Not only an illustrator, Tom (born Touko Laaksonen, 1920-1991) was also known as talented pianists and he studied at Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. We like to bring his talent alive and start the tour with an audiovisual experience combining his art, interviews and favorite music. This takes place at Klaus K Hotel that once was where Sibelius Academy was located.



Hail Satan, Flight 666 Lands Safely in HEL on Friday the 13th

Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard the most metal flight of your lives. Let’s do some sky crimes.

Finnair flight AY666 has, according to the Daily Mail, become something of a running joke for several reasons. Along with pentagrams and images of Baphomet, 666 is, of course, associated with Satanism. And several times a year, AY666 just happens to fly on Friday the 13th.

Today’s extra-unlucky flight also happened to be nonstop from Copenhagen to Helsinki. Or as ticket-holders would have seen it written: CPH->HEL

Just to drive the point home, the plane itself is also reportedly 13 years old as of this year. However, it is unknown at this time which of the passengers were seated in the 13th row, or if any of them were 13 years old.

At 3:50 local time today, flight AY666 landed more or less on schedule and without incident. Thanks, Satan.
