En als januari dit jaar nu eens voor Augustus valt?
Millions of people wrote songs about the same subjects, though nobody did it like he did! RIP Daniel Johnston.
Yesterday's opening of the RTVS presentation at Pinkie Bowtie was as strange as a RTVS broadcast..
One of the things that happened was that one of Rom's children wanted to spread part of the ashes (the urn was in Tchech Republic, where Rom passed away in 2006) in the river Scheldt. The illegal style this happened in was something Rom would have loved for sure. Especially when we arrived at the meeting point and a police boat was awaiting us. It turned out one of the cops was familiar with one of us, so all was fine. This was at 5pm before the opening at Pinkie Bowtie at 6pm.
Lots of old timers from Renson and Rom's circle such as Leo Dierckx, Christ De Laet, Filip Baert, JAC and so on wher there and took part in the live broadcast. The exhibition is still on view on Saturday and Sunday between 2 and 6pm. Most welcome!
Tonight Tehching Hsieh does a lecture at Muhka, and tonight Trapist (with Chris Dodge of the fantastic band Spazz) plays at Het Bos.
