In Amsterdam the weather was great and all the activities created a crowded lolapaloza full of fun. This year the city authorities have provided enormous quantities of toilets. I have never seen so many in my live... The full set is here. Unfortunately the great atmosphere of Queensday was overshadowed by the terrible things in Apeldoorn.

The analog/digital/online worlds come now in hybrid formats. First of all I got the special edition of the new U2 ablum: no line on the horizon. I comes with a great book with pictures of Anton Corbijn, the music on CD and a link to a download of the movie Anton Corbijn made for this album. Unfortunately I cannot get this to work.... a real pity....
Secondly I bought Guy Ritchie's Rocknrolla. An action packed blue ray that looks and sounds very impressive indeed. You get a code to a digital download of the movie too. Unfortunately Windows only.... What a missed change...
So yes I added some great new media, but no, I am not able to get everything right in one go....

My top three of Paaspop: 3. Dikke Dennis 2. De Staat and overwhelming winner 1. Elle Bandita: what a great live show. All Paaspop pictures are here.

A very interesting evening indeed at IPAN with many experts on the challenges of digital content. Sports and music, creative commons and full rights... the need for a button comparable with 'buy now' for paying and licensing of video, music and other content would be a great invention. The full set of pictures is here.
