I dont know anyone who's birthday it is today

And I feel perfectly fine by congratulating them if there were any. However, this song is just so cute and adorable that I had to post it today. And ohh I totally forgot how much I love Amsterdam in summer time.

Also I started making photoalbums again (like the ones you put in your closet or under your bed and discover a few years later again). I recommend this to everyone. I'm sometimes afraid of losing good times, so this is perfect. It may sound silly, but the past years my pictures were either on my computer or somewhere thrown away, never to be seen again. Now I can show them to people, pretending to be an annoying old grandpa showing his flower pictures from the Alps. :D

One day of studying

Results: two really hilarious youtube movies friends posted on facebook. They are definitely worth mentioning..hahahah

What I love most about summer.

(Random pictures I found on the internet/in books/in my closet/on my wall)

Found it found it found it

After a lovely day in Antwerp with Sarah (and a lot of urban outfitters, second hand stores and picnicking down at the riverside with a lot of duvel and guitars), we found this little record store. There I finally saw the record I was looking for.. I think I've searched about a year because in Amsterdam you can only buy it when you pay 40 euros. Now it was about 10, and its the only record I've played since.

Bird on the Wire

This is about the places where we rehearse and how we all wanted to be part of the Basement Tapes.

Our house is a very, very fine house

With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
And our la,la,la, la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la....

Hometown tourism

I am celebrating the beginning of summer by not doing anything I dont want to. Spending my evenings drinking and dancing (and performing like last night), waking up by looking out over the canal and spending my afternoons with my sister in the sun pretending to be tourists in our own city. Amsterdam is a beautiful place.

Selfish people

They are following me. Leave me alone, mind your own business, I am not interested in you and your thoughts at all. Think what you want to think, I could not care less. Yes Selfish people, I've met a few so far and they all think your life is about them. Well guess what; LEAVE ME ALONE and let me be, happy on the balcony with sarah and willem. We bought apple pie and are drinking beer while its only 3 pm. I am happy, so do not bore me with your pathatic opinions.

Phiew yes sometimes blogging about thoughts can really help getting over stuff.
I AM happy, and I will stay like this. I've got trips to London, Paris and Scandinavia ahead, everyone I love is healthy and my house is the best place in town for me at the moment. I also bought a really classic chair at the market this morning and had a really interesting conversation with an old lady who happend to be a famous painter.

Also, blogging can be seen as something really selfish. It is really about me, and me alone. But I dont throw it your face, and no-one has to read it. In fact, people who read this shouldnt read everything because mostly its just about crappy thoughts I had to type down and publish. :)

I am living now, I am happy now because you never know what will happen tomorrow.

One of my favourite paintings.

The lady in a black hat (Kees van Dongen), hanging at the Matisse exhibition at the Hermitage at the moment. Its beautiful and a beautiful exhibition as well. Amsterdam, have a look within a few weeks, otherwise you'll have to book a flight to Russia.

De Vogelfabriek - Late Avond idealen

Onze opa’s en oma’s verspreidden illegale verzetblaadjes in de oorlog of verstopten zich in een kelder. Onze ouders demonstreerden tegen de oorlog in Vietnam en pleitten voor vrije seks. Onze nichten en neven toupeerden hun haar en aten patat... En wij?

Wij... wij zijn de ‘overgevoelige’ generatie.

Wij liggen soms uren te huilen in ons bed omdat we op het journaal hebben gezien dat de ijskappen smelten en de ijsberen verzuipen. Ondertussen zetten we de elektrische deken een standje hoger.

Wij zijn overtuigd vegetarisch, we pogen zelfs om onze katten vegetarisch op te voeden maar als we ‘s nachts dronken in een verlaten stad alleen nog maar een Mc Donalds open treffen laten we zo onze idealen varen.

Wij storten elke maand op de rekening van het WereldNatuurFonds om vervolgens per auto naar de sportschool te rijden en daar vervolgens op een cardiofiets te gaan zitten.

Wij hebben spaarlampen die we laten branden als we weg gaan, anders zitten onze cavia’s zo in het donker.

And also, Laura Marling is my hero.

So the first of April is one of my favourite days. I tell everyone I'm pregnant, that my band is going to support the White Stripes. Daila and me are laughing and laughing while no one really thinks its funny. I love it.

This year it was even better because of the most pathetic medium in the world: facebook. Facebook is boring, it is stupid, it does not make sense and it makes me want to scream MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. But I have to admit, I use it I might even be addicted; When i'm studying i'm using it once an hour (if not more)..just to see if some people who i've shared happy memories with (and never see anymore) now live their lives well. And yes, ofcourse I use it for sharing unnecessary information with my friends and beloved ones. Still I find myself reading lines of people I speak to once a year. WHYYYY???. well at least because you can fool people on april first.

Anyhoo, I tried to fool my friend in London, told her that I was in town. And she became so happy, and I knew it wasnt true. I felt reaaallly guilty. For the first time at April first. I know I have to go there, I lived there, I miss the city and her very much. She went away just when I really got to know her..I miss her!!
Yes I definitely am going to book my ticket..

But if you're ever up on Highgate Hill on a clear day
You can see right down to..lalalalallala
