Beestjes vangen

So excited. Was dit bijna vergeten te melden maar: op de terugweg van het boodschappen doen betrapte ik twee Aziaten van jonge komaf in mijn straat, Pokemon Go. Weet het zeker. Ze hadden alle symptomen. Net SARS, of Zika. In mijn wijk, kennelijk ook van die beestjes. Ik wist helemaal niet dat ik dat ook buiten de kranten kon tegen komen. Het komt wel heel dichtbij nu allemaal.

Looking for Pokemon Go.

Levensgevaarlijk stonden ze stil midden op de weg (een verkeerluwe steeg midden in het winkelcentrum, maar toch). Als een goede getuige betaamt, liep ik zonder te stoppen of hulp te bieden door. Wist ik veel of ze daar ter plekke zo’n figuurtje aan het afranselen zijn? Voor je het weet ben je medeplichtig.

Ik ga eerst ff wat straattaal googlen nu, integreert nog beter met de jeugd. Tenminste, dan heb ik de volgende keer iets om te zeggen. Dat ze me verstaan enzo. Ben zo modern bezig. Whoohoo!

Eens lezen of dit ook geweldsincidenten veroorzaakt (gaming is tenslotte overal de schuld van), kan ik er ook schande van spreken. Fijn.

Project Oh Potato: Steve

Rock(like)band Meet & Greet: Steve

 

Steve is the lead singer.

Steve wants to be mysterious. Squints. He has blonde hair.

Steve is sick of people mistaking him for Justin Bieber.

’Life is an endless mass of continuous growth’.

That’s all Steve said. Coked out of his mind, but still, deep, very deep.

Steve did not write any of the lyrics. He grew up in a middle class suburban home, his parents are proud of him.

We love Steve.

Project Oh Potato: Vicky

Rock(like)band Meet & Greet: Vicky

Whenever people talk about the rock (like) band, they talk about Vicky ‘Sweet Potato’. She doesn’t sing [red. at all, so let’s be thankful] but she is the light of the group on keyboard. She started piano lessons when she was 6 years old but failed in her teens to get into the academy.

‘I just didn’t fit in with all those peachy girls.’

She was however hugely popular on Youtube with home videos of her piano skills. And dancing. She got really discovered in the vegetable aisle of Wholefoods by the agent of the group. He walked up to her and just gave her his card and told her to come in and audition. And that was it.

Our interview got re-scheduled 3 times but when we get to sit down with this little angel it’s all smiles and wow! If you were a biscuit, which would you be? Vicky: ‘Oh, I like everything but my favorite are onion flavored crisps.’ (note: we did not follow up on this question due to her acclaimed eating disorder).

Vicky is known for her fashion sense and her long blonde hair. So we, at the magazine, were very surprised to Read More
