Obey Your Chihuahua.

Made of bricks.

Broken windows in brick buildings, horses painted with graffiti…

…you guessed right – I’m back with another post about the alternative venue called ‘Cultural Stables’ (Kulttuuritallit in Finnish)!

A little peek to the stage and dancing/hanging out area.

On the bottom left an old poster of photo exhibition the local animal rights group had for their 10th anniversary a couple of years ago. Also some big bulb fairy lights and re-used decorative stuff.

A close-up to the counter of the vegan cafe we had during the events. Free food for the musicians and affordable prices for everyone else!

Can anyone translate the letters beneath the panda drawing?

This swing is kinda pushing the structures to their limits when in use but no one really cares. I guess, you only live once?

Smash fascism is kinda self-explanatory. Or if not, you should probably piss off from this blog to be honest.

DIY work in progress.

Symbol called ‘kirkkovene’ painted right next to a very on-point command. The word can refer to the kind of rowing boat used in rowing competitions – or a ‘vulgar’ drawing of vulva. I personally think (from a third-wave feminist perspective) that it can be used to reclaim the meaning of pussy from being a taboo to empower femininity.

Lovely autumn/fall colour scheme!

The running red chilli painting above reminds me of the art made for the film ‘Across the Universe with the red juicy strawberry.

Gotta love the vibes!

With ghostly face painted onto the cement wall I shall end this post!

Ghetto Golf Liverpool.

bty

While I’m out in Liverpool making some new memories, I decided to give you guys a glimpse of one of the places I got to know on my last visit here.

bty
Fairy lights, magic mushroom paintings…

The place is officially called ‘Ghetto Golf’ and it’s simply a chilled-out place where you can have some drinks and burgers – and play ‘crazy (mini)golf’ with friends!

bty

I want to clarify regretting nothing by posting this. I think the interiors are frickin awesome!

bty

You just gotta love Ghetto Golf’s clever little third-wave feminist hipster slogans painted in the weirdest (or the most familiar?) places.

Had to add my favourite Hole song since ‘Violet’ has been stuck in my head while making this post.

Personally, as a person suffering from IBS, I absolutely adore the toilet humour as decorative element!

Choose which monkey to associate yourself after your hit-or-miss.

A place with a painted camper van inside can’t be that bad. Gotta appreciate those fellow van-golfers!

Yours,
