What is it like to live in the Netherlands? I've heard that it's beautiful & I'd love to travel there someday.
Hey anon. Sure, we have some beautiful places. If you want to travel here, do it. It’ll be a new adventure! Check out some stuff on fuckyeahthenetherlands The guy shares some awesome pictures from Flickr and sometimes some local happenings.
I never got why people would want to travel here besides to come and smoke weed legally, drink beer (Heineken represent what what) and eat cheese but uh, sure. We also have a lot of nature and water (canals etc) and great food! Also, architecture from back in the day etc. We have a lot of museums. Most tourists are interested in the Anne Frank Museum, I guess.. You can see where she hid and stuff. It’s pretty cool. And I mean, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Johannes Vermeer are well known painters (I think..) but originally from Holland so we have some pieces of them here too. If you like art and history (and architecture too actually), it’s a great place to go! Or if you like beer, cheese and weed then it’s great too! And if you like both: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
We have food that you have everywhere but also food that you have nowhere. And it’s a damn shame it’s not available anywhere else because it is delizioso. So, if you like food! Stop by also.
If you ever plan on going some time soon, you can beam me up. I can show you around in Amsterdam, Haarlem, Den Haag (English equivalent: The Hague) and the town where I live in. Which I’m not gonna share, but it’s basically in the middle of Holland. And I think I’ll be fine finding my way through other cities as well.
Oh, and please ignore all the stereotype-y stuff. I’m here to answer your questions about how people or things are here. Don’t ever check anything else, haha. Okay, I’ll stop rambling now.
so tell me... when was the first time you watched tv... and first got a tumblr... and watched a movie... and tell me when the first time you made a gif was... and so tell me about the time you started listening to music?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!
And when and why did you start watching these shows?: Louie. Mad Men. Running Wilde. SNL.
Louie: July 2011. It was just this day in the summer where I felt like watching new shows. Tumblr usually has good taste, so I also watched Louie. I really REALLY like it. WAVE TO ME.
Mad Men: I guess around December 2009. Or January 2010. That was the first dramaserie I fo’ real started watching in my life, ha. It was pretty hard to catch up, but, right now. I just want it to be fucking March already. I started watching it because of Tumblr. Yep. Once again.
Running Wilde: Uhh, I guess I watched it last August. Reason:
SNL: Well, obsessing over 30 Rock basically meant obsessing over Tina Fey for me. Which led to falling in love with Jimmy Fallon and obsessing over Amy Poehler etc etc because I watched almost every Update Tina was a co-anchor in. I just watched a lot of random episodes between seasons 27 and 34. I guess from either 34x22 or just 35x01 on I really started following SNL with every new episode. So, that was either May or August 2009.
Sorry for the random question but why and when did you start watching The Office, Parks and Recreation, Community and 30 Rock?
Oh, don’t apologize. I love random questions like these! This is gonna be long though because I’m bad at being short with my answers.
The Office: In 2007, I guess. When I saw Bruce Almighty I started loving Steve Carell. 40 Year Old Virgin was basically my favorite movie for 3 straight years. So, I mosltly started watching it for Steve. I really can’t remember how I watched the first 4 seasons over here. I guess my brother watched it occasionally and at some point they started airing it here. From season 5 on, I watched it on the interweb.
Parks and Rec: Well, it started in September 2009. That’s basically when I was getting more and more obsessed with comedy. I was just one month on Tumblr, I guess. So, I was like: OH MY GOD AMY POEHLER IN A NEW SHOW! So, I started watching it from the beginning for Poehler and I kept watching it and now I can’t stop.
Community: I started watching Community last January/February. So, I caught up on that. Mostly because of Tumblr. And I just felt lame for watching Comedy Night Done Right without Community.
30 Rock: “That guy wanted to buy you a drink!” “Really? But I already have a drink. Do you think he’d buy me mozarella sticks?” January 2009 this episode was on TV and this got me hooked on it. I said; fuck TV and its commercials, to the interweb! So, I did. I caught up with 30 Rock until the American timeline~. Which was at 3x09 at that time. Ugh. I love it so much. I need season 6 right now.
