...It is so much, so many
tombs, so much martyrdom, so much
galloping of beasts in the stars!
Nothing, not even victory
will erase the terrible hollow of the blood:
nothing, neither the sea nor the passage
of sand and time, nor the geranium flaming
upon the grave.
Pablo Neruda, 1937

A special thanks to everybody who came to Inferno last week Thursday… it was my last night at Warwick & in England for a while to come, my first time up on the Marketplace stage, and I really enjoyed seeing 1,000 pairs of hands up in the air at To Nem Ai!
Wicked everybody, thanks for making Heat a memorable part of my Warwick experience this past year!

A video with music by Ralph Myerz and the Jack Herrenband; several flyer designs; photographs taken in the Netherlands, France, Greece…
A friend of mine, Xander Bruins, is currently enrolling at the Dutch Film Academy in Amsterdam. His aspirations in filmmaking have developed over the last view years. An overview of the progress made so far is Rednax, his second website, featuring several funny clips. Ralph Myerz and the Jack Herrenband were said to have been pleased when they saw the video. Have a look and judge for yourself.

Inferno captures the essence of One World Week, the atmosphere of Heat, the look of Metropolis, all coupled with the excitement a major end of year party. More a Carnival than a Club Night, this is an event most certainly not to be missed.

Clouds over an English landscape!
Over the fields
That there and there a ray of light
A magical light
Through quiet lanes
There at the border of town
Chestnut leaves thick, green
Then liberation: rain

I’ve recently been made aware of the fact that animals on the British Isles speak a different language than their brethren in the Dutch Low Lands. In fact, in England animals make weird sounds.
Whereas, for example, horse in Holland make the perfectly comprehensible sound “hi-i-i-i-i [indefinite number of iiis]”, their English counterpart is reported to say “nay! nay!”, seemingly indicating there is something they don’t want to happen.
Our pigs make happy and satisfied sounds. They regularly say “knor, knor”. In England, they utter the utterly incomprehensible “oink oink”.
Our ducks say “kwek” or “kwak”. I’m not sure what English ducks would say in similar situations.
