“celine dion, haar nieuwe geur. ontdek haar”. getverdemme.
a couple months ago i stumbled upon a weblog by one jaap stijl: desultory turgescence. it’s great, you should all read it. bored out of my head, i googled his name this morning and found this:
Jaap Stijl was born in Leiden, The Netherlands and received his BS in Agronomy from Denventer Agricultural College in the Netherlands before moving to Argentina to work as a gaucho and tour guide at the Estancia Los Potreros. Following a brief stint as a vermicast sculptor, he returned to The Netherlands to become an apprentice juggler with The Netherlands National Circus. During that time he published “Tussen Nacht en Naakt,” a collection of essays and poetry on Dutch colonial exploitation of Indonesian coffee workers. Since then, Jaap has moved to NYC to begin work on an exhaustive research project covering the history of Dutch and Walloon settlements in Brooklyn. He spends his spare time playing speed chess for money in Washington Square Park.
as jonathan ross would say: i am genuinely impwessed.
and oh yeah, to the guy who stole my bag at the nationalestraat laundrette:
i hope you die a lonely man.
