"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Posted:Hey what's up everyone!

Good job on the planning mate! To bad it didn't fkn worked out ey... When you're homeless you can go on streets in amsterdam and drop yer pants for a few pennies...
But when you're trying to do something good it gets waved away. Damn them... those... they... grrrr

Couldn't make it tonight in utrecht man... And tomorrow... well... since my boss is an overly complete piece of assmunch I can't come..! Or go! I CAN work though... wrrr

I'll keep on checking this page though... Let me know if you guys are planning on meeting up again soon.

Good luck & take care!

Its been a wee while since I joined in on one of these merry hubilaas... Im in for some action tonight!

Looking forward to catching up again.

Im heading in from Groingen and remember that the trains heads back kinda early. If anyone has a piece of floor space they keep for strangers (of any colour as long as its warm) Id like to use it. (Im bringing my sleeping arrangements on the offchance)

I will be at the station at 8. Hope thats the plan?

Well, I've a repley from City Hall.
So there's good news, and soem less good news.
The less good is: No way we can play for money today, and we can't play on the Dam anyway.
The good news is: They didn't disagree, but they didn't approve yet. They told me if I want to throw a one-time event, I have to come by personally to talk about the options! So I was thinking, since I don't really have time, maybe someone could do that for me? I can give you my Id and everything to make sure this man knows you're really there on the count of all of us (I did told him we're a bunch of people)
I think toninght is a good oppurtunity to talk this over!
Here's a copy of the mail:

Goedemorgen,

Om toestemming te verkrijgen voor een 1-malige straatartiestenact met
muziek verzoek ik u persoonlijk langs te komen om een en ander door te
nemen wat de mogelijkheden zijn. De Dam is geen optie ivm een
winterevenement.

Vriendelijke groet,

Maybe we can pull this off after all, only at an other time! This does sound pretty neutral!

Thomas

p.s Maaaaybe I'll be able to arrange a place to sleep (at my house) for one of you. The point is, I'll have to 'overleggen' with my 'house-mate', if he's okay, well, you'lll just have to chos eamong yourself who's gonna stay!
But remember, maaaaaybe! I'm not promising anything!

Posted:Hello wave

Yay, looks like there'll be loads of peeps tonight! We'll be there at 8 too, and Beth, we won't leave you at the station, but what do you look like? You can recognize me by my red coat made from real muppet fur smile, but I reckon we'll be a fairly conspicuous group anyway. I pm'd you my phone no. didn't I?

FYI everyone who wasn't there yesterday: we were briefly succesful, until some cops made us leave - after about five cops had gone by already and only made positive comments! Waah frown

That's good news Thomas (though I do believe this is a mr. de Jong I spoke to who wasn't very cooperative at all...), how does everyone feel about giving this another try? To be honest, I'm a little worn out from a 1-and-half week struggle with all kinds of authorities that didn't really result in very much in the end... does someone else feel like taking the torch? If it can be resolved in one conversation with this guy that's great, but what with the thesis still not finished I can't afford to invest the same kind of time in it as I have done already...

See y'all tonight!

hug

Good news for any two of you :-) If you REALLY don't feel like going home, you're welcome at my place to sleep. (don't mind the mess) My house if like 10 minutes from the leidseplein, so that's not too far from the Vondelpark. (since I suppose we wil be playing there)

Anyway, if you want to stay, let me know asap. Eesrt komt, eerst maalt :-)

Posted:It was great guys...Nove, where were youuu?
And you Utrecht guys, you was suddenly gone! But anyway, I'm sure you all came home save (on the count I called ya)

So because as well as Tonygirl and Carobanas didn't came, I still have places to spare, I'ma see if I can't seduce a nice girl (I say that every week, I never do ubbloco) And today, listen to this conversation when I WALKED home (learn to walk people, okay if you ha dto work) but if you had time...WALK, it's, if you wakj REALLY relax, a little half hours at a max! Anyway, I was walking home, just a little freestyle spinning, basic stuff, backhand and stuff you know. Suddenly this (drunk? I couln't tell, but she was very heppy, disn't sound or looked drunk) girl comes up to me.
"Wauw! wat vet!"
"Uhm?!"
"Doe ja dat vaak?"
"Tja, genoeg"
"Kan-ie ook in de fik" (which girl talkes like that? This was a cool gal!)
"Yup. wil je htet zien?" (A joke, I was on the Damrak)
"Jaaaaa!"
"Echt waar?"
"Jaaaaaaaaa!"
"Hier kan dat niet he, als je met me naar het Vondel gaat wil ik het wel laten zien!"
"Neeeeee, ik kan niet ik heb een afspraak!"
"Jammer, weetje wat? Kijk op Homeofpoi,com, via daar vind je vast wel ee nfilmpje ofzo!"
"Okaaay, doeeeeei!"
And she huppelde away! So I walked on, than she came running back!
"Joh! Wat stink je naar verbrandheid?"
"Ja ik heb net net vuur gespeeld!"
"Oh ja! Hihi, dooeeeei!"

SO I was like: ?
And then like: this chick is cool :-)

Oh my god I love my City! I want a meet before the VBM...one in Utrecht pleaaaase?!

Posted:I was there, I was there! But I couldn't find ANYONE!

So me and some random exchange students patrolled Amsterdam for a few hours. We even asked some cops if they'd seen any firepeople (I was careful so they didn't be all like 'fire? better go put it out!!')... That was moderately depressing that I couldn't find you guys. Sigh.

Regardless; how'd it go? Did you get much money?

Posted:Hola smile Sorry about running off, Mot, Marco and myself all had to get up very early (for a Saturday that is, 7:15 is pretty early right?) so we ran off to catch a train. But yesterday was cool! And indeed, ubblol Thomas!

I can't say about Friday the 18th off the top of my head (don't have my diary on me), but I seem to remember something mentioned about december 2nd a while back because someone is coming over from, I think, England...? Who feels like hunting for it? smile

Nove, I'm really sorry you missed us, but it's wise to keep checking the thread before a meet because plans are pretty prone to change due to weather, flakiness, or in this case evil city hall people and police! If you have the time to read the last five pages you'll get the full story smile Mot & i pm'd you our phone numbers, right? Give us a bell the next time you can't find anyone!

Posted:I agree! Nove I'm very sorry you missed us, but the plans usally change every 2 hours or so...so keep checkinh htill the point you leave!

About December the 2nd. Either check the thread back, o listen to this:

This guy is coming over from England, he's in AMsterdam the 2nd and would like to meet us! I tols him I'd arange a meet for him, so he cab learn some more people and we'll have a blast (I don't know huim though, I just recieved a meal form him, telling me he'd would be in AMsterdam) So, I suppose the 2nd is allright...the 18 is a no-go for me, it's crusiale date concerning my work...but the 25th might be good! (or the 19th, tha okay with me)

Hands up, who's in for Utrecht?

Posted:I know-- not your guys' fault! I was a little bit late, too. I'd been checking back often enough, but I was actually in Amsterdam pretty much all day, which left all day for the plans to change and me to not be able to check and see. smile Third time's the charm, I'm hoping!

Sorry I missed out-- I've still got eight months to go, though, so it's bound to happen eventually... Given that I don't show up late or end up on a train to Germany or any other variety of things that usually happen to me to make it so I miss appointments.

nono! thats the wrong date,.. you want to come 17-18 (night of saturday on sunday)december or you'll be spinning on your own.



MWJ@R (MidWinter_Juggle@Ruigoord, formerly known as VBM, also known as RVBM) is looking better and better. Flyer is designed and is just waiting for some last nesecary info. And a website is going to be build this or next week. So you all be informed ontime on the where and how of the first MWJ@R fest. A MSJ@R (MidSummer) is also already being thought about for when this one turns out to be a grand succes.

Posted:Hi guys! Well, Chilton, this guy from england contacted me again, here's his mail:


Hi Thomas,

Not long now, cannot wait to come to Amsterdam, 2nd December is fine to meet you Guys.

I arrive on the 2nd but well up for some spinning. Do you know if its possible to bring Fire Poi on the plane. I think it will be ok but not sure. If so I might buy some when I get there, Are there any shops in Amsterdam that sell Fire poi? Glow poi?

Do you have a phone number? So I can call and arrange where to meet etc. I have never been to Amsterdam before but I think it should not be to hard to find the Vondelpark. Thinking of going Clubbing on Saturday, love Psychedelic Trance so if you know anything that's going on I would really appreciate.

Thank you Thomas and see you soon.

So, you might mark the 2nd in your aganda's!

Thomas
