Preview from the happeningRight before our trip to this years Fetish Evolution we got a very interesting invite to participate on radio DJ Frank van der Lende's program "De bende van Van der Lende" (A witty wordplay that roughly translates to "The mess of ..." or "The gang of ...").

The downside of this invite is the hours of the program, this is a night-time program, and I mean 01:00 - 04:00... a challenge we accepted!

Wasteland hosted a party during the program and we got to play, have fun and participate in a short game.

We sneaked in a snap-shot and got our hands on some footage shot during the night.

rm19991231_2-safe-tbt.jpg#TBT This image was among the first we published as RopeMarks, in 1999

It was taken with an analogue camera and scanned to use on the site (,- a site that was a non-automated, what we call now a, blog.

This was also the time where the information about bondage from Japan was hard to find, needed to be hunted and in effect made sure that as a Western student your only path was developing your own style (

This is a stark contrast where you now have a rope-get-together-event-festival-munch-whatever almost ever week somewhere on our blue globe; information is happily exchanged and accepted blindly as a truth and then copied, photographed and posted on as much social media as possible.

The "old rope-days" were hard, definitely not something to want back; but sometimes, just sometimes, I miss the hunt for that one pearl related to rope-bondage, a technique, a pose, a bit of information that will progress your growth and style where instead finding that pearl these days means "the world" has already copied it, took photo's of it, spread it as their own, named it and changed it - all before I had my first morning coffee.
