https://cirque-bout-du-monde.ath.cx/pages/langues/indexgb.htm

or

(its the same site but easier to remember): www.ejc2004.org

I hope to be attending seeing as i will have lots of student loan left, and by the sounds of it, its a damn good laugh.

Robert Harrt should be there too! we can make much fun at him.

or i could just tell him exactly what i think of him... biggrin

yes, that would be fun
*stops stroking beard*

OK, quick thread hijack so I can do a search next year....

Top things I wish I had at EJC that I'll be sure to bring next year:
- Crappy Flip Flops for wearing in the shower.
- Henna.
- Games for sitting in the shade and being slack.
- Remember to shop before the last day!

Things that we had that were key and I should remember to bring next year:
- Gazebo
- Vodka Watermelon
- Shorts
- Sun Screen
- Blankets to lie on
- Extra Tent
- Tons of Water
- Ear Plugs
- American Shorts with tons of pockets
- Wide range of warm/cool clothes
- Hat to screen the sun
- Nice space to camp
- Food to share

What else did I forget for next year? Guys?

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

I'm pretty sure Cole is ... um... tobacco powered. As long as he keeps abiding he should run smoothly. Unless a certain princess is there... she has a tendancy to wear him out. eek

I'll be remembering to bring some spare clouds to cover up the sun, or at the very least some suncream (thanks to all who let me steal theirs and not become a lobster!)

And backgammon - I still can't believe no-one had a backgammon set!

A large vehicle to carry back all the stuff I managed to acquire, and with room to carry all the stuff I didn't acquire but would have liked to - ahh quality cider for 50p/litre rolleyes

YARR! Thats replaced the whale in my nightmares!

Oh yeah... and Cole and the Princesses will flake every year. That's my prediction.

Every year they say: "Oh yeah, I'm totally gonna come down for EJC yeah I promise yeah I'm totally gonna be there it's cool..."

And then they go to Glastonbury.

And the tune changes to: "Oh I'm totally skint... I'm burned out... I need a break... Next year I promise."

So as long as Glastonbury is a week or two before EJC I don't think we'll ever get those crazy kids.

Sad but true. frown

Well... we can always hope and dream ...

See you all except for Cole and the Princesses in Slovinia. Maybe.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Ptuj in Solvenia is 950 miles away. If you drove straight it'd probably take about 15 hours from Calais. You have to go through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria and then you get to northern Slovenia and Ptuj. Apparently it's beautiful. We need a mule to take comfort and equipment. I'm up for the drive and stopping eveywhere on the way, who's me driver's mate? smile

umm when you said Germany, did you mean Austria? yeah, that's what I thought.
Provisional offer of a floor in my flat in Graz (Austria!) and cups of tea before the start of the festival for tired travelling folks on the last legs of their journeys (and probably their bodies too!) hug

WAHEY!!!
elloooooo....
s'meeeeeee Ben!!!
yay!!!!
ejc was fantastic-amazing-wicked-incredible-lazy-fun and matt- i might even have started to do a little wibbling myself as well as the usual dribbling in your honour.

hmm- tim, lidiya and I didn't go to holland in the end- we decided it would be the end of us motivationwise. wow hehe Instead we fumbled about for another evening in carvin before heading to lille and spending all our remaining money on inter-rail tickets leaving Tim and I with no money for food or accomodation... hmm... interesting
we then chose to head to Zurich as we heard there was some sort of festival there. It turned out to be a massive techno rave street parade with over 3.5 million people, foam parties, techno and psytrance galore and random-everyone-dressed-up-and-feely-good-vibes the week after we arrived (PSI you would definitely have loved forever and ever as much as we did!), so we stayed there for the week.
The best thing was that we took much note of Canada Bob's street performance workshop and after a few flops started making some nice cash with our fire performances and stuff. We earnt the vast majority of the campsite fee and borrowed some off wonderful lidiya for food (and have an inter-rail ticket!).
After that we moved on to austria for some mountain-goat-fun. hmm.

anyway, I'm currently back in madrid for a couple of days to see my bro before he heads off to live in guatemala. Then meeting up with T&L possibly in paris or maybe prague (where they are at the moment and send their regards) before heading back to spain for some R&R.
Unfortunately I don't think we're heading boom-ways, but who knows... we shall see when the time comes (we have no money to pay for tickets- but can travel there if anyone knows how we could get in free/ help out with shows etc).

wow, big rant over.

love to all, off to sleep!
zzzzzz.... hug biggrin ubbrollsmile
mua!

wow man! I've been wondering how you guys got on. Last I knew of you, you were heading to Amsterdam, so I assumed that's why you hadn't been in contact... wink
The rave thing sounds amazing and I glad you started pulling money in from the busking too, I cant wait to hear about it!
Keeping the Chimaera flag flying, Sy and I are also working on a street act - with the obligatory sword fight (you know Sy!)

Hope to see you at some point in Madrid... or hey, the BOOM thing might still work out - if we get word from Mike. smile
see you soon

I'm sensing quite the road trip.

Slovenia sounds like a lot of fun!

Drove through there during my travels last september. Didn't stop off though but it was lush. I'm definitely up for a little road trip dom.

Mike: No luck on getting you a place at boom, my buddys all booked up i'm afraid.

Looking forward to bristol, see you all there.

That wasn't my fault... I would have happily made my way on the french trains if my french wasn't worse than laura's and hell, hers is pretty bad. [I seem to be gathering scowls here.] biggrin

Maybe if I was a pimp and had oddles of money I wouldn't need to skimp around and get lifts places when other more broke people obviously deserve them more ... wink
