second part if it... Veera: So have you stopped hanging out in bars altogether? Or if youre having a night out with your friends, do you take part in that?

Ville: I dont have many friends, and I dont go out. Not hanging out in bars anymore doesnt have to do with me not drinking anymore but with the fact that you cant smoke there anymore. Bars smell bad now and theyre ugh and I dont want to hang there anymore. Itd be fun to go to a corner bar to read the paper or whatever and drink some coffee and smoke, but you cant do that anymore. You can say that I quit drinking because you cant smoke anymore. The two things went hand in hand. Now I just spend time at home where I can smoke.

Veera: How have you filled that time? Is it just by reading and hanging at home?

Ville: With music, pretty much. Its hard to say how I have filled my time because functional alcoholism is possible. You can do a lot of things while being a little drunk.

Veera: What kind of big questions have you been pondering on lately?

Ville: Big questions? Smoking laws. The economy of England/the English language. [What he says could be translated either way, and I honestly dont know which one he means. I guess the latter would make more sense.] What else? About how Barack Obama is accused of not having done anything. I have speculated about that on many occasions. Its interesting. If you think that theres a country where there was slavery about 160 years ago It doesnt matter how much he gets done because all the intentions are good. And the fact that such a big country has a black president has such huge symbolic and liberating value. Except that the pope should have been black too, but I hear that there were so many people in Africa to be converted that it was better to take this German guy. These are the kinds of things Ive been thinking about. I dont know if they are big ones. Theyre big to me.

Veera: What are you going to do now? The record and the tour will be keeping you busy, but on your free time?

Ville: Before May 8, I have maybe 4 or 5 days off. Meaning days when Im home. Ill try to see my mom and dad, that would be nice. I think I should do laundry. And I have a laptop thats a bit old and Id like to get a new one, but theyre kind of expensive. [Then he goes on about how Apple screwed something up and now its hard to run some program or other on Macs or something like that.] This kind of stuff, getting my home studio in order a bit. But I havent vacuumed in like seven months, I guess you can call it immunotherapy.
