I went to the Finnish countryside for a week, to visit family, and got back to London last Thursday night. I had a few hours to spare on Thursday before my plane left from Helsinki, so I decided to head into the city and just wander around and take some photographs before my flight. I was walking down towards the harbour and I noticed a crowd of people standing around outside a hotel so I went to see what was going on and one of them said "The Rolling Stones are staying here". Unbeknownst to me, the Stones had played in Helsinki the night before, and were just checking out. And at that exact moment the crowd started to cheer, and then Mick Jagger walked out of the hotel. He stood around and waved at the crowd for a minute and I took a couple of photos (though sadly did not get to pose WITH him), and then he got into a car and it drove off (presumably to the airport). I'll post the photos in the next day or two; I haven't got them off my camera yet.

I finally downloaded them!

They shut down the street around Jagger's hotel:

He had a bunch of shit being loaded into a big truck:

All the shops were closed for the occasion:

Then Jagger came out!

He gave one big wave to the crowd and then got into a Merc and was gone:

So I wandered around and found the World Trade Centre. It's totally fine! That whole 9-11 thing must have been a hoax! See?

And here is a bonus picture I took just 2 minutes ago, of my cat on my dining room table, along with a Forrest Gump salt'n'pepper shaker thing I stole from Universal Studios in LA:

I'm sorry, he looks great. It just can't be denied. That's the body of a man half his age.

Thanks for sharing, Stef.

I saw Mick Jagger on that travel show where the blonde woman goes to different parts of the world & explains different cultures. He walked down a stairway next to her. He was with a huge "bodyguard" whom had his arm around Mick's lower back holdig his hip with his hand.

they close an entire street, shops and all, just because a rock star checks out of his hotel. that's fucked.

Tom - if you could please point me to the thread where that Pot quote was posted, I would be most grateful.

It's only "fucked" if your trying to get somewhere, otherwise it's a random chance at seeing how the other half lives.
