Happy(!!)...oh wait...

Am I too late with yelling out 'Happy New Year!' to everyone?
Oh yes I am. But I'm gonna tell a little (visual) story about my NYE days anways. So there! Pooh!


Me and sis went to our parents place to spend some peaceful times during Christmas. We got pampered by mommy. Big time.
This is our mom. Sitting next to the Christmas tree which was decorated by always...for the last 10 or so years.


But I celebrated New Years Eve at someone else's place (back in Amsterdam) who lived between two lovely prostitutes.

And then it was time to party.

I was on the guestlist of a label night party, somewhere in the always-filled-with-only-tourists-and-tourists-only-Warmoesstreet. The reason I was put on the guestlist, is that I used to be an electronic music producer...(yes, one of my 'secrets') and I know the label owner: DJ BONE who released a record of mine, many years ago when I was an ambitious youngster trying to become the world's best electronic music producer.
Unfortunately it didn't work out for me as school kind of intervened my dream. But...I graduated a few months ago (don't take me wrong, I'm proud of myself I received my Bachelor diploma...STAY IN SCHOOL!), and therefore I have more time on working on a come back!!
Every now and then, I still receive e-mails from event organisers who want to book me to perform as a DJ. But I'm not a DJ...I'm just a producer. I would love to learn how to play live though. It's time to realise my dream as a musician and travel all over the world!!

Enough with the are more pics of this night.

After the Subject Detroit Label Night...I went to Studio 'till we drop on the floor!

Happy New Year everyone. And may all of your wishes may come true...THIS year!

Gorgeous photos and night Daniel! Though I rarely go out on new years even anymore, I still very much enjoy living vicariously.

Yes, I've visited and commented on your blog a few times before :) we share internet friends in Miriam of the Insiders Journal and also Crystal of Powder Blue I think? Also, I have you on my blog reader and truly enjoy the way you write. You seem like an extremely honest blogger and that's greatly admired.

Hope your 2010 is going great and keep writing. I'm a fan.

Well you really know how to party! Haha. If I ever am in Amsterdam (I would really love to visit) you must take me out to all these wonderful clubs.

Happy New Year! And a great story! What a wonderful way to spend Christmas Holidays.:-)))

Your DAD decorated that tree? Wow, he did an awesome job.
Funny New Years Eve custom, dropping air tanks at the stroke of twelve onto pedestrians in trench coats. I've never seen that before. (just kidding, I've seen it done in Harlem)
I wonder how many people clicked on the prostitutes link.
