Offended Lands

...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

I Had An Awesome Time At Inferno!

Inferno, full MarketplaceA 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!

Appeltaart (Rednax)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.

Pretty Picture

Writing about web page

Photo by N. Hudgell
End of year nostalgia? It is true that I will be leaving England soon and will not be coming back until 2007. It makes my appreciation of the English countryside more direct and urgent, see also a blog entry earlier today. On Nicholas Hudgell’s blog I found a few more very good photos, among which the one above taken in Buckinghamshire.

A Cloud Breaks

Clouds over CoventryClouds over an English landscape!
Over the fields
Dark clouds

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

Translated poem. Unibus, Leamington, 18 May

British Peculiarities IV: English Animal Sounds

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.
