Mike Skinner Stuttgart 2016

Stuttgart, Germany, 5 November 2016

Mark was supposed to drop me off at the train station but he was running with my brother still. I dropped myself off by car, Mark would pick it up later. Roos stayed with my mum.

At 1:30 I took the train from Hillegom to Rotterdam. About an hour later I arrived there. I bought myself and Ozzy a Starbucks. Then I left the station to Ozzy’s car. Oz was waiting for me.

Mike Skinner Cologne 2014

Cologne, Germany, 26 April 2014

Máté told me that Mike would be playing in Cologne. I’ve seen Mike there 2 years ago. It’s only 2 ½ hours drive.

Ozzy and I are going but it’s the same day as Kingsday in Holland. It’s the birthday of our king we’re celebrating. His actual birthday is on April 27th but that is a Sunday this year, and out of respect for people who go to church on a Sunday they don’t celebrate on Sunday’s, they celebrate it that year on a Saturday instead. That’s the case this year. We only have a king since April 30th 2013. he took over the throne from his mum (Game of Thrones). We used to celebrate Queensday on April 30th, this year the date changed. I need to wear orange, otherwise I’ll look stupid in Amsterdam. That means I will have to wear orange to Mike’s gig too. I am not going home first.  Sorry lovely German people.

Mike Skinner E-Werk Festival 2012

Cologne, Germany, 3 March 2012

My mate Ozzy and I went to the opening of the first official Apple Store in Amsterdam. In Holland we had a few Mac Houses and iCentres, but no Apple Store yet. Now we do, anyways we joined a queue of about 4000 people at 9:50am. The doors opened at 10 and after waiting for 1 ½ hour we got in, we got a lovely orange t-shirt, nice for queensday people said, but it’s my 4th orange t-shirt, so I have enough – nice t-shirt to sleep in! I bought a docking station for my iPhone.
