Probably my last one, but definitely one to remember. I had a great time at Rock Werchter this year. Highlights for me were: Marc Ronson, Soulwax, Hot Chip, Mika, Ben Folds, Air Traffic and The Hives.

I can’t believe that anyone would still book these losers or even pay money to go see them. What an idiot…

The wedding on Saturday was good fun too even though the DJ sucked big time. My cousin’s quote: “if you won’t start playing some better music, I will smack you in the face”, was good for some laughs, but didn’t have any impact at all. Luckily we were all determined to have a good time, no mater what. Even kissing those younger ones, right R.?

Moving in 2 weeks… countdown has started.

Hils & I

The "Was it 70s, 80s or 90s"-party (in true Stu Bru mode) was a success! Best party I have ever had at my house. Thanks to everyone for making a fantastic effort in the dress department. You guys rock!

I see the pictures already appearing on Facebook (oh god…), and there is a selection also online right here.

My birthday/housewarming party was awesome! Thanks to everyone who made an effort to show up as a Quentin Tarantino character! Some pictures here.

Yesterday in De Standaard: Second show of The Police tonight cancelled due to voice problems of Sting. Their gig in Het Sportpaleis in Antwerp on Monday sold out, but on Tuesday the show was postponed.

MasqueSince I don’t live in Belgium anymore and definitely didn’t have Police tickets, I couldn’t care less. I had better tickets for yesterday evening: tickets for The Masque of the Red Death, the new production of Punchdrunk. They also did Faust some months ago, remember? Again it was an amazing experience (read a review here) and if you can get tickets to this, go. Because let me tell you, everybody wants to go there! Even famous rock stars cancel gigs to go there… Yes, Sting was also there last night…

Adam, a friend (and lead actor of Breaker), plays in this too (middle one in the picture).

Thousands of mosquito bites and a wary start aside, this last weekend was just amazing. I have completely changed my views on literature festivals!

Ok, so no trains on Friday due to the bad UK weather did not promise a very good start of the weekend. Going to the casino instead and winning money at the poker tables however, made me feel a lot better already (and made the rest of the weekend free!).

So we left on Saturday morning and about 4 trains and 5 hours later, we arrived in St Germans, some tiny quaint town close to Plymouth. The festival grounds were at 300 meters from the train station, so no long hikes there. Port Eliot is a manor with a beatiful estate surrounding it.

After finding the perfect spot for the tent (see pics from Nick below), we enjoyed 2 days of poetry, stand up comedy, stand up poetry (aisle16, these guys were brilliant), music, 1-minute disco, dancing, drinking, eating etc. And it didn’t even rain during Saturday and Sunday. At least not during the day… It rained all Sunday night though…

So after Brighton, my second wandering outside of London was quite worth the trip! More pics from me on Flickr.

Yes, I was on this camping and yes, I heard it all. It was around 3 am, I think…
