Hanni El Khatib

Yesterday I went to see Hanni El Khatib in Nijmegen. These two guys treated us to what they call knife fight music. The venue was pretty small and it hadn't sold out, but Hanni El Khatib wasn't fased and still rocked hard.
Because it wasn't real crowded I got to get close to the podium and had plenty of opportunity to take photos.

I had a great, loud, garage rock filled night. Go see this guy play if you get the chance!

Another shot from the lot with old trains and buses next to Partagas the famous cigar factory in Havana. I've burned a lot of film here :-)

Amstel beer

Now I always have been a fan of Amstel beer. Lately however my allegiance faltered a little.
When I came across this on the net it opened my eyes again. I shall not question the superiority of Amstel beer again! :-)

Boardsock sewing

 I started work on the first Hou Koers boardsock yesterday. Thankfully my sister helped me out with her sewing machine. I don't think I would have gotten far on my own, those sewing machines are some pretty complicated machines :-)

This movie by and the Almond crew also helped me out a lot!

I have some more cutting and stitching to do, but it's getting there. Will post the finished result when Its ready.

So trying to be a bit more of the social media expert that I'm supposed to be, I started using GooglePlus.
None of my friends are using it actively yet so there's not much happening on my GooglePlus yet. I guess being an earlyish adapter is boring as hell.

I however thought to give this GooglePlus thing a chance and started to actively complete my profile with some info and pictures and stuff. As soon as I got to the photo part of my personal GooglePlus space, I found al the pictures I had ever posted on this blog (Blogger is a Google application) were imported in GooglePlus. All neatly stowed away in an album named 'Hou Koers'.
For some reason however there were a lot of duplicate pics, so I cleaned up the album a bit. Now as soon as my friends would start using GooglePlus actively, they would have the convenience of viewing all of the pics ever posted on my blog without having to look at all those duplicates. Pretty cool of Google to automaticly import these pics I thought.

Boy was I wrong.

For some reason the album featured in my GooglePus environment weren't imported pics, but it was the actual database of my blog! So all the duplicate pics I removed from the album disappeared from this blog!

This sucks big time. I will try to put the missing pics back, but it's a pain to locate the pics and reload them on the blog, so it will take some time.

For now here's a pic I shot somewhere last year. I bet this guy in Cuba isn't bothered about and/or with new social media applications, he's way to busy looking groovy.

Holland needs a new surfshop

This pic was taken at Connors surfshop in Rotterdam. This was a cool shop. Creative stuff and a knowledgeable crew that was really there to help you as a customer (unlike the other surfshops in NL) Sadly Connors has closed.
He still runs his blog

We sure could use a new shop like this.

Plastic Fantastic

I love fleamarkets. A while ago I found a sick retro skateboard for peanuts.
Had to put new bearrings in the wheels, but now it flies!

As you might have noticed the pics are a bit off. When you devellop your own fils you'll have to replace your fixing chemicals in time. They won't work forever.
Gives some pretty funky effects though :-)
