Yesterday was hectic at work and afterwards as well. In the evening I had to got to Margôt's birthday party and afterwards to Mulligans to meet with Collins, Anna and Victor Lacken. We had to discuss a film script Collins had written for Victor. The idea is to enter it in a competition of the Euro-IX Internet Exchange where the best script will be awarded €25.000. They'd asked me to give technical advice as the script is about the Internet and how it works. I was home late and didn't make any blogable photos.
This morning my foot hurt, so I took the bus to work. Another hectic day; in the morning I had told the general manager I was leaving at 16:00 and at 15:55 he asked me to change a 25 page document. I told him he'd be the first person in the new year I'll do work for…
I walked to Polderweg where I saw a new graffiti. It's in a totally different style from the other graffiti you see there. This is much more thin and sketchy. The other stuff is all ballooning letters, which is getting a bit old fashioned. I wonder if this is the new style to come.
The old church-like building on Polderweg (next to the now-gone flying saucer sports hall) looked like something from a gothic movie in the setting sun. If this was in a movie you'd expect Mad Max to come roaring out on a motorcycle any minute.
A much more normal scene on Steve Bikoplein: a 'bakfiets' with two locks. I like these old fashioned transport trikes. They are very functional and look great, whether they're brand new of old and dilapidated.
The next couple of days I won't be blogging since I'm away to Hamburg with Danny, Marion and Janneke. We're leaving Saturday morning and will come back on the Monday evening. Blog updates will continue on Tuesday.
