For most of the past week Midori has been in town presenting as a guest teacher at the Dutch (Amsterdam based) contemporary art institute, Das Arts. On the last day of her time at Das Arts Midori was scheduled for a show. This, open to the public, show was done together with Kumi.

KumiOn Friday we picked up Kumi from the airport. While waiting on Kumi, having our first Starbucks (if you love it you know what I'm talking about :)), we received a text message from Miss Mirjana who by pure coincidence (is there such a thing?) also happened to be at the airport. We met up with Miss Mirjana and waited for Kumi to arrive.

Dinner When Kumi arrived pleasantries were exchanged and we all jumped in our car and drove of to the houseboat that Midori was staying on. More pleasentries were exchanged and we all walked down to the restaurant for food. The food was great, the company was great but the group of people sitting behind us was not so great; drunk and loud. They made occasionally made conversations a bit difficult but we had a great time nonetheless.

Saturday was the day of Midori's show with Kumi. We unfortunatly had to miss it because of a private workshop elsewhere in the Netherlands. Sunday Kumi left again, heading for Greece. She was on her own that day since we had another private workshop somewhere in the Netherlands. On Sunday evening we got a relaxing way to finish our "action packed" weekend; a warm home-made dinner was waiting for us at Ancilla's house... uhm, yeah, right... a phone, a order-in menu and the lovely Ancilla herself! As far as we are concerned, those are all the ingredients for a great end to our weekend :).

The icing on the cake of this weekend is being sick on mondaymorning :(
All "get well soon" messages can be send to my personal mailbox :).

Soooo... How to spend your weekend 101.

Last weekend the Wasteland party was held again. For this edition one of the shows was a SM/Bondage/Magic-act from Japan, by Mira Kurumi. Mira Kurumi is a well known name in the Japanese SM Scene, he has been doing his "thing" for eleven (eleben:) years now, has his own studio in Japan and has started his own DVD-label. His show on Wasteland was a combination of magic, bondage and SM. A four-man show, Kurumi-san, Ari (his gothic-lolita slavegirl, uber-cute!), Amrita and Coco.

Amrita, Ari, Kurumi-san

How did we spend our weekend? It started on Thursday, we picked up Amrita from Schiphol, who flew in From Vienna. Then we picked up Mira Kurumi and Ari who arrived a few hour later from Japan.

AriBob and CocoThe next day we went for some Amsterdam sightseeing and Dutch pancakes. Now there's an experience, petite Japanese people who are getting a humongously big plate with a Dutch pancake (wich is more like an Italian pizza) on it. Save to say, they did not finish the entire pancake... or I'm just an over-eater :). Because Kurumi-san has his own studio in Tokyo he was interested in a real Fetish/SM party in the Netherlands. No better place to go than Mrs. Manita's Fetish and SM-Play Party on the ShowBoat. In the evening we went and as usual we had fun (I don't remember -not- having fun during one of Mrs. Manita's parties), a great combination of good atmosphere, real scene people, real shows (no simple shaking your latex ass) and real action (no plain f*ck*ng). Kurumi-san has had a great time there, it wasn't until late and people started to leave that he thought it was time to go to.

Saturday, the day of Wasteland, they we're busy with preparations for the show (Kurumi-san, if you read this, I want my carabiner back! :)). This was a crazy busy day, so we met up during the Wasteland party. This time Wasteland was held in the North Sea Venue again (finally! :) and imvho has put Wasteland completely back on track, we had a great, almost "old-fashioned" good time. Kurumi-san's show was late but they performed it very good, tired as they must have been. His combination of magic and bondage was very interesting (to say the least), he also performed a few interesting bondage-position-switches. Hopefully the crowd "got it", but knowing the Dutch party people they probably didn't (judging from some comments from people watching next to us :). Still, I truly enjoyed and would recommend his show!

Mighty nice butt... Sunday we didn't... where unable to, do much. Monday we drove the Japanese visitors back to Schiphol and that ended our weekend. Oh, and those legs ending in that butt, were walking around on the ShowBoat and Wasteland. Mighty fine butt... :)

Next weekend, Kumi and Midori.
