leve ed

last night i attended one of the busiest openings i have ever seen at the stedelijk museum: one of my true heroes ed van der elsken and bumped into another hero: mister anton beeke, great to see that van der elsken’s work remains so releavant and still attracts such a large crowd… well worth a visit

farewell

harm_farewell_4

earlier this month news reached me of the death of my uncle john a sweet man who passed away after a prolonged period of sickness aged 72 years old, them some ten days ago my week took another much darker turn when i learned of the bizarre and tragic death of my good buddy harm wimmenhove who was hit by a speeding police van late at night on his bicycle; whilst crossing a road just around the corner from my office…

harm_farewell_2

i had intended to write a long piece remembering harm, his friendship, the work we did together (this very website since 2005, for example) and all that he meant to me as a person

harm_farewell_5

but… sat here, now, in front of my keyboard, i realise that i don’t really feel like writing that article anymore… i miss him, that’s all… his death was sudden, tragic and has left a great number of people behind’ shocked that he is no more

harm_farewell_1

my thoughts go out to his family & close friends in particular

farewell harm… we had a blast, later on i will play the track ‘phoebe’ by extrawelt from their album ‘in aufruhr’ very loud, just for you… remember?
