Hi from The Netherlands !

Hi from The Netherlands !

Postby Joostdenatris » Mon Apr 09, 2012 11:07 am

Hey everyone! My name is Joost and I'm one of the lucky bastards to get a ticket for this year :-). It will be my first time and I'm planning on making it a good one. I play in a Brazilian percussion band and I'ld like to get a Samba / Brazialan Percussion Band going on the playa aswell. So if you play drums, samba or similar: let's get in touch!!!
I've also got some plans for a little installation on the playa that I just might build....
Looking forward to meeting you out here !

Hi Joost,

Welcome! You won't have any trouble finding brother and sister drummers on the playa!
Don't bore your friends with all your troubles. Tell your enemies instead, for they will delight in hearing about them.

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Welcome.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Hey Akmojo!
Nice that you're coming over to Amsterdam!
You'll be very welcome at the monthly Amsterdam Purning Pubs. More burners from abroad have joined occasionally and have found a place to sleep or a group to out with through the Amsterdam burner community. Best have a look here and post a message upfront:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/109915471603/
Louisa is the one who organises the pubs.

I´m sorry I can´t meet you here, I´ll be in the states in August...

Anyways: welcome to Amsterdam!!!

I have an idea! Organize one!

Oh yeah, wait, we don't live in a society of radical self-expression combined with a doo-acracy...

And well, cubicle walls may or may not deaden sound, but the deaden the human spirit.



And parades. Cubicle walls deaden parades big time.
