Topic: Tonight in Amsterdam.....
Message: Posted by: Freak Prodigy (Oct 26, 2008 10:24PM)
I saw the most amazing thing.

No, not a man screwing a goose (well, yeah, okay, I may have see that)

But tonight I saw and met the ONE ARMED DJ, this guy is AMAZING, holy crap... The gang and I did the best show of the tour at Boom Chicago, then went to a hip hop jazz club (a really fantastic concept) and, I noticed that the DJ only had one arm, the other was a stump about a foot long... HE WAS SCRATCHING WITH HIS STUMP (the records, not an itch)!


Not only was this guy talented, he's considered the best DJ in Amsterdam, and he's one of the best I've ever heard.

Find out if Crazy White Sean is playing somewhere nearby. Go see him. Tell him I said hi.

I already looked. He isn't. I would like to see what he does, I've only heard stories.

The stories you've heard, don't even come close.

He's a wacko in all the right ways, and a delightful human being.

Brett, "drinking" any "coffee" while you're over there? If you happen to be lucky enough to be renting a flat with a kitchen, go to the supermarket there and buy some Dutch bacon... it's sliced paper thin and cooks wonderfully. Can't seem to get it anywhere else in the world.

Nope, Nips. Plenty of secondhand coffee for me.


Actually we slept in the theatre last night.

Making notes? Taking (quality) pictures?

When I was there they let you have a gander, but not take pictures.

Just realised 'have a gander' may not travel as slang. We use it for 'have a look at'.

Uh...we do too.

Though I had one for Christmas Dinner once.

You'd never eat goose again if you witnessed one of those performances. :)

"Have a gander" DOES Not mean take a look over here ...... It means "to have sexual intercourse with a male goose" over here in the UK.

"Lets have a butchers" - means pretty much the same thing!

yet strangely "fancy a shag" simply means would you like some nice carpet - the UK is a stragen place!
Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Oct 27, 2008 04:33PM)
I always thought it was stragen.
Message: Posted by: Destiny (Oct 27, 2008 11:29PM)
I've always thought you can never have enough nice carpet.

Since when did this become the "floor covering Café"? Or are nips and destinty talking about sex in ufamisms?

We are talking about floor coverings.

We are both very into floor coverings, though obviously we don't go for the same sort of floor coverings.

The more I think about it, I realized I SHOULD have said "I prefer bare floor"...
Message: Posted by: dave_matkin (Oct 30, 2008 03:14AM)
Do you mean like just concrete? You are a strange man! but I guess you are tough and being a black smith you may well prefer a concrete floor.

I much prefer naked women...... although it does make the flooring a little uneaven.

[quote]although it does make the flooring a little uneven[/quote]

I don't think those floors are meant to be practical.

Some things in life are just meant to be enjoyed.

But of course it's different strokes for different folks.

Look at Brett's example in Amsterdam.

Most of us are happy to sleep with just the feathers, but there's a fellow who wants the whole goose.
