Gipsy denim jacket


This gorgeous flea market treasure had been hanging in the closet for too long. So M finally did some "big pimpin'", and the jacket got a new shape and look with cuffs, new buttons, some fabric on the sleeves.

We like to Party!


We crazy celebrated M's b-day on Saturday. The theme was to make a coctail to each guest, so when everyone did one, one got maaaany different drinks. The night's most extremicious drink was Linda's: coconat milk, banana, chocolate chip, hazzelnut nougat licore drink. Some stiff stuff! Beyoncé's Party was our anthem of the night, listening to it on and on. We also looped Destiny's Child's No No No part 2 (and sang along) so many times that "Mr. lovely nextdoor neigbor M" showed off his true colours once again. But he didn't call the police, even he threatened, so all is good. Damn he needs to get some..

Can't stand J Cole. Andrei 3000's part is way better!

Funkin' Stylez Finland


We took part in hip hop 1vs1 and all styles crew 5vs5 with our assembly Die Hard Animals. The name is obvious, coz we are animals: Marika Peura (Deer) aka Bambi, Linda Ilves (Lynx), Pehmeä Jänis aka the Soft bunny, Cobra and Erä-Jorma haha. I think everyone was a bit sick during the week (hhmmm could it have been because of the wild weekend in Tallinn..??). So a jar of Burana was on our rescue on that looong event day.

Check out more photos from the event by Otso Kääriäinen: http://poksphoto.com/?p=478

We had to battle against each other in the hip hop 1/4 final. Blaaa that's alwas so boring. M got to the hip hop final but lost against Jemal Fusion Art. Linda lost the house final to Daniel from Sweden. And Jeniwai lost the popping final to Wave from Estonia. So you can imagine that after losing 3 finals we were hungry to win something!

We won the 5vs5 crew battle and get to represent in the finals in Dusseldorf!! Bujaaa!! The crew final against Natural Hype was absolutely hilarious. We spend the whole Sunday looking the footage over and over again. Most entertaining is to watch our own reactions when one of us is dancing. Hahhaa we were just jumping around like lunatics. Especially Jeniwai. Thanks to Natural Hype for a great battle and sorry if we seemed A BIT aggressive at times (in the end).. lol.. Akim aka Alfa Extreme won the locking category and he's also off to Dusseldorf!

Congratz to all the winners: Jemal Fusion Art (hip hop), Daniel (house), Wave (popping), Khan Fusion Art (Me Against The Music), Akim (locking) and Smetana Ninja-Bonchinche (vogue)

JJ Street Baltic Session 2011

JJ Street Baltic Session was a crazy weekend with a lot of friends and dancing. This time Finland came to Tallinn massive. Sami had organized a package tour, so that's why there were around 70 people from Finland. And the party was about to pop. Big thanks to Sami, everything was really smooth and easy, like in a school trip. For the first time we enjoyed three lovely nights in a hotel (not with -s) with all the benefits aka breakfast. Only thing missing from our room was a jacuzzi. From now on I refuse to travel, if it's not a organized package tour!! haha.

Friday was the preselection day. A lot of Finnish dancers took part in different categories. Everybody did a great job. In hiphop there were something like 100 pairs so it was a long wait for our turn, cause we were the 65th pair. But it we had fun and made it through to the battles. Sami and Anniina also made it through in hip hop category. In popping: Jeniwai, Aden Pop and Fanny made it to the battles, locking: Jeffrey&Akim, Patrick&Helena Taylor, Sonja&Maria, Helen&Johanna. So it was Finland representing!

Saturday was time for the battles. On the breakfast everyone was guessing with what vehicle would JJ make his big entrance this year. The guesses were wild, from a helicopter to Tarzan's liana. But for our disappointment he kept his vehicle's aside this year. We battled against Ben&Majid from Germany. For our surprise a lot of Finnish dancers came behind us to show support. Never thought that would happen, so it really meant a lot to us and gave us energy to the battle. We were so happy about it! We lost in the extra round, but the battle was fun!!

1/4 final Ben&Majid (winner) vs Marika&Kaisa



Our preselection



On other categories Ama won the Vogue Femme and Helen won Runway. Patrick and Helena made it to the finals in locking and Maria fought in the Krump final even though she had injured her back in the semifinal. Also bboys from Rancid Rockers did a great job in the semifinals.

The after party started in our hotel-home-party. Most of the Finnis people in the same room turned the room into a sauna. We enjoyed the heat with all time favorite r'n'b and slow-grinding songs. Damn I need a Soldier! Guys wanted some Adiemus, but at the end everybody were pleased. The official after party took place at Gruuvi, which is a skateboard hall with air hockey, trampoline and other activities. That was super dope! Truly the best place to for a party! Whoa we were in a crazy mode!

when a picture tells more than 1000 words

On Sunday morning we went to enjoy our last hotel breakfast, oh boy did apple juice taste gooood! Then we packed our bags and said good bye to the lovely hotel room. We desided to go for a stroll in the city before our boat back home, and spent the last our's in Middle-Age with Slyrre, Elmo, Johannes, Antti, Antti, Aleksi, Juho, Laura and Tatu! Restaurant Olde Hansa's food and athmosphere was just what we needed to this hilarious Sunday afternoon.

Weekend was so much fun! Thank's to JJ, Ita and other organizers, Sami, all our friends and our other Finnish peeps! Aaron, DJ's and other dancers for sharing the good vibes! Much love!
