Parties vs. Pain


Last Friday, november 11th we went to Maastricht to party hard at the
Ipanema/Bonnefanten Museum’s AGOGO party. I guess we informed
you guys on that. What we hadn’t told you was that that day Carnaval
(sort of a Dutch Carnival) started in M-Town and that we saw two excellent
(yet rather old) DJ’s do their thing. We immediately ordered our main
assistant Menno Mono to take pictures of these guys. He followed them
everywhere and took about twelve thousand pictures of the event. Since
we have only so much memory/space to upload stuff, here’s five of ’em.

If you’re from around Rotterdam don’t forget to go to the WORM opening
next Saturday. They got this new place in the West-side area (an ancient
V.O.C. building) pretty close to my house, so I’m there and I’m drinkin’.

Then next sunday there’s an opening party at Cucosa, celebrating new
work by Evelien de Jong and —my old art school class mate— Richard
Trifunovic (both painters). Our buddy Robert Rosenau and his new band
Delegos are playing ’round 16.00, so shake off that WORM hangover w/
new, fresh beers at one of Rotterdams nicest art communities.

Peace… in the Middle Ease
(anyone saw that israeli border cops documentary on ‘3’ yesterday? That
was just sickening… I saw it right after ‘Oprah in New Orleans’. The Horror…
I can’t help but loving Oprah. I guess her showing that to the US people
truly makes a difference, consciousness-wise — you know… You go, girl!)
