      Back to basics.

      3 years ago

      So, today I'm without electricity. The power in my room, but only my room,is gone after I tried to 'Gourmet' which basically means you all sit around a big hot plate and grill meat on it. I live in a big apartment with about 100 other students, and only 2 of them have the keys that enable them to turn on the power, and both are gone...

      So, now I'm sitting here on my bed, only lighted by my laptop, typing this journal which I borrowed from my friendly, yet unknowing neighbour...

      Happy Birthday to me!

      3 years ago

      So I finally turned eighteen today! What this means here in the Netherlands: I get to vote (yay?) I can go for a drivers license, not going to though. It's useless for me at the moment and far too expensive. I can drink strong alcoholic beverages. I can go into clubs now (which I did already, they never controlled my ID) I can gamble now, and I can legally view/participate in porn. (stay tuned!)

      Other than that I'm also moving out of my parent's house to live in Eindhoven, a big city in the Netherlands with a street of 225 meters filled with bars, clubs and pubs. Which is also 800 meters away from my new home. While this has played a part into my decision to move to Eindhoven, it's not the main reason. The main reason is that I'm going to study there too. I'm going to study Chemical Technology at the Technical University Eindhoven.

      Also, big kudo's to Thijsbos, because he's the first one to congratulate me here on RT.

      Pinkpop

      4 years ago

      So, this weekend I went to Pinkpop, world's oldest pop festival.

      It was awsome.

      After getting completely lost and taking a detour of at least 45 min (which is very impressing, considering I live about 30 minutes away from the festival terrain) me and five friends arrived at one of the camping sites. After setting up the tents we started the walk to the festival to see 'De Staat' a Dutch rockband. And they did rock, they were great. After they stopped playing we walked around the terrain listening to a bit of Manic Street Preachers and Simple Plan. Then we went to see Elbow. I love them, their music is soooo relaxed! They gave a great show. After Elbow we went to see the closer of the day: Coldplay. They played great and were interacting great with the audience.

      So after leaving the festival terrain together with 66.000 other people we went to the camping to eat and drink. After our bellies were full with great self-made hamburgers we went to the party tent and celebrated pinkpop there. Much fun and much beer were had. Once the party was done we went back to our tents. We were camping next to one of the main paths so we met a lot of awesome people, including three Australians who knew a little Dutch. 'Ik ben dronken.' which means 'I'm drunk.' and for some reason 'Winkelwagentje' which translates to 'Shopping cart'.

      After a few hours of sleep we had breakfast and started Kingze, the drinking game I mentioned in a previous drunk journal entry. So after we ran out of beer we went to the festival terrain to see Hurts, just relaxing on the grass. After that we went to see Hanson, the creators of Mmmbop they started with playing songs nobody cared about until they played Mmmbop after half an hour or so. Not even for the headliners was so much cheering, clapping and whistling then for that. After they played it, half of the visitors went away to see the other band that was playing, leaving Hanson alone with perhaps 100 fans or so...

      So after Hanson we relaxed on the grass again listening to Tim Knol, a Dutch guitarist and Cage the Elephant. Then it was time for the fucking awesome Wolfmother, which cancelled previous year but were determined to to make up for it this year. And they did. So after that we grabbed something to eat and got ready for The Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77. I did not expect it, but it was the best damn thing during the entire festival! Only too bad I couldn't see Avenged Sevenfold, but it was worth it. The moshpits were great, although extremely sweaty... And as finishing touch my favourite band closed the festival: Kings of Leon! It was not much of a show, but that didn't matter, the way they simply played was beautiful.
      So after leaving the festival terrain and buying more beer we went once again to the party tent to continue there. After another fun night it was time for the last day.

      It started out relaxed once again with Scouting for Girls, Dazzled Kid and Two Door Cinema Club we went to see Go Back to the Zoo, another great Dutch rockband. And to continue with the rock we went to see Bruce Springfield's favorite band: Gaslight Anthem. Then we went to another great band: Volbeat. Totally awsome. After that we went to see a bit of The Script and Band of Horses. Following those two was Kaiser Chiefs, which is another of my favorite bands. To mix stuff up a bit we went to see one of the best things Canada ever made: Deadmau5. DAMN! Seriously, DAMN! He was great. And to completely top it off, the festival closer: FOO FIGHTERS. Both new and old, everything you could possibly wish to hear from them: They played it and they aced it.

      Can't wait for next year!

      So, what's up?

      4 years ago

      So, it has been a while since I made my last journal. It's even been longer since I've made a journal in which i wasn't drunk.

      So, let's see. School is boring and easy as always. I'll probably go to the university in Eindhoven next year, and probably going to live on my own. At work nothing much has changed either.

      The only thing that has really changed lately is that I go out a lot more. Celebrated Carnaval for the first time, if you don't know what that is, then it's your loss, go read Thijsbos' journals or something. I'm also planning to go to pinkpop, their programme is great! Here you can find it if you're interested.

      I also pickedp Dragon Age 2, that game is amazing. If you're into RPG check it out.

      Fucking wasted

      4 years ago

      SO yeah, I'm fucking wasted. (so pleas excuse tghe spelling/grammatical/punctuation/ typing errors.)

      Me and some friends went to see jackass 3D.

      AWSOME!

      Then we went to a nearby bar, called the Napoleon.

      We did some kind of drinking game, and if I remember correctly these were the rules.

      When you grab 2-8 Black you need to drink yourself
      If you grab 2-8 Red you need to point someone who has to drink
      (oh yeah, you need lot's of beer and a set of playing cards. Put the cards in a circle with some overlap.)
      (It was called kings.)
      if you grab 9 (doesn't matter wich colour.) you choose a subject (for example cars). Everyone needs to sum up a type of car (Audi, Toyota, Hummer, etc.) Once someone doesn't know a subject or repeats it. he has to drink.
      10 is making up a rule (we had; don't touch the table, drink with your left hand and don't use your thumb to hold the glass.)
      the Knave is a choosing a drinking buddy. When you have to drink he has to drink, and when he has to drink you need to drink
      Queen is frogging. All say one word of the sentance which is: The forg jumps in the pool, SPLASH. Once you go to round 2 you need to say The the frog frog jumps jumps in in the pool pool SPLASH SPLASH. Round three is the the the frog frog frog (you get the hand of it.) THe person that doens;t know gthe next word or says the wrong one needs to drink.
      King is Hitler. Once he makes a gesture (slapping his thumb against his other fingers (rahter hard to discribe, the sign you use when you wan to say someone talks a lot) others have to copy it. Last one to do it has to drink
      Ace is quizmaster. Once the quizmasters ask a question and you answer it you have to drink. THe only answer you can give is ' SHUT UP!'.

      Hope you;ll alll get wasted like I am with this game.

      Greetz,
      Marc

        What the hell? The only thing that's true is that some people living near the border prefer to go to Belgium, but that's only because the waiting lists are shorter. Rest of that is complete bullshit.
