Bring it back and not care about it?

DZ is scheduled to play Amsterdam on the 24th, less than three weeks from now. Do you think he'll still play?

In relatively good news, a Dutch court has fined 8 people for making racist remarks on the Facebook page of the ultra-right-wing party.

Well, zappa.com is back and gone only for the reason of paying Gail a tribute, it seems. Haven't noticed anything's changed otherwise.

My test was on special relativity and it turns out I got 12.5 out of 15, which isn't so bad. The lecturer must have been very lenient.

Hey that's pretty good!

Made a slide and fell with my bicycle. It's in need of a new pedal nut, the steer got bent so badly it had to be replaced, my shoelace broke and the trousers I recently bought are worse for wear.
I'm bruised - it was hard going to sleep but otherwise I'm not badly injured.

You and bikes!!

That reminds me, that I actually haven't said much about the day my wife and I spent in Amsterdam a week before Christmas last year. One of the main lasting impressions for me was how many people there were riding bikes. And the bike parks! Massive - everywhere.

Just finished the take home test with three days to spare. Now trying to catch up on all the theory I'm still struggling with.

They do, don't they? :) They're very practical to get around in a country without mountains.

Plook did some research after noticing Kapt. Kirk hadn't been online for a while and found he had a heart attack and is in a hospital in San Francisco. Sending some good vibes his way!

Yeah, that was a bit of a shock. I don't talk to Kirk much on zappa.com but we've had several conversations elsewhere about my music and other stuff. I was sorry to hear about his heart attack, he's not that old.

Our internet has been down for two days. I've been using the hot spot on my mobile phone. The technician is at the exchange, right now, having a look.

It does. Not sure if it's related to his bullshit court charge...

Anyway, sister's come over, it's very cosy!

A few days ago I bought a DVD of the Polygoon (Du cinema) news between 1940 and 1945. It was published by the NIOD, the Dutch institute for war documentation.

Beforehand Dad pointed out something to me I should've guessed: it's all nazi-propaganda that says a lot. One item deals with a female member of the Dutch nazi movement NSB - the Catholic and numerous protestant churches had denied NSB members of religious rites, and when the woman died, she wasn't allowed to have a service at church or be buried in sacred ground. Which the NSB solved by occupying the cemetery.

Just spent another day in The Hague browsing for infos. Got two articles on FZ too - one on his passing, and a review of the Grand Wazoo-show that appeared in Haagsche Courant.
These are both in the Zappa-forum:

that's cool, I like watching old news or reading old newspapers, especially from that era, it very interesting, hystorically speaking.

I find it difficult to watch actually. It's a lot of marching and other things we call vlagvertoon.

Ooh Poly, good luck!

I started on a get-to-work-project that basically means I have to do production work 2 days a week and take classes for 2 more days. I hope it's the path to a better future, but for now I feel pretty miserable.
