The “polite police” that work at the ferries at peak times. Their job is to ensure that those waiting to get on the ferry allow those on the ferry to exit, before they attempt to board said ferry. And yes, the Dutch need such a thing as “polite police” because this never happens when they aren’t present. I just play the back and let Dutch people do their lemming thing and once all the important people in a rush have boarded the ferry, I waltz on with 2:35 left until the ferry departs.
CREEPIN’ ON AH COME UP
If I was posed like this smoking a cigarette in front of Centraal Station, folks would think I was looking for keys in bike locks.
CHIVALRY BEEN DEAD
Chivalry is surely on life support. Honestly, one could argue that the concepts of chivalry and feminism cannot coexist. Did chivalry ever actually exist in the Netherlands? This was the first country I’ve ever visited where a women looks befuddled if you hold open a door and say, “After you.” Is the death of chivalry attributed to the individualistic ways of mollycoddled men or instead is it attributed to obdurate women refusing to accept random acts of kindness? The debate rages on as my dude gets chauffeured around town by a dame…
My pops makes these #mixtapes; he’s been doing so since the #70s back when #cassettes were the preferred portable format. He was always meticulous with the track selection and the art, which used to be rendered by hand but now comes digitally. I can’t lie, he has impeccable music taste. His soul, jazz, reggae and funk knowledge is deep, and he stays abreast of contemporary music as well. On a trip back to #Cleveland he handed me a blank CD-R plastic containers worth of these mixes. Whenever I’m looking for solace, I pop in one of Bruce’s Master Mixes. Love you Pop…
Dude is killing the Bavaria Dress. Happy birthday, bruh. #noord
A distinctly #Dutch form of advertising.
Oh shit! The #Dirk got the pinchbeck #Vans for the player price! #amsterdam #noord
What initially appears to be a diverse selection is actually a wall full of drop. “Drop” is basically licorice, but less sweet and way chewier. It’s like Scooby Snacks for the Netherlanders.
The lady in this photo, she’s gorgeous-only a fool would debate that. The only oddity about her would be the fact that about 85% of the ladies under 33 years of age in Amsterdam are wearing this exact same outfit at the exact same time. It’s a wonder that they don’t nullify themselves…
