Notes From Das Boot 59a

Mr. Anderson and his cod piece

12/04/09 Prestatyn Sands, Wales
Capt. Cod has gone out of business due to stiff competition from other local cod outlets, The Codsman, and Ian Anderson’s Cod Pieces.

Farewell Captain, thanks for the cod!

Notes From Das Boot 58

Hard Rock Hell or HeadBangers and Mash
The Hard Rock Hell festival is held in an off season resort near the ocean in Prestatyn Sands, Wales. When we got there Thursday afternoon, the old guy at the gate kept giving us directions and pointing to us with his middle finger (or as it was known when I was a kid, “the FU finger”). I was thinking the guy was being a dick and then realized that he was missing his index finger. It’s cold and windy and pretty severe here, the many buildings that the rooms are in are spartan at best and remind me of a bootcamp. Since the subtitle of the Hard Rock Hell festival is Vikings Ball there are a lot of people stumbling around drunk in what is for the most part home made viking garb, it looks like a Monty Python “Spam sketch” convention.
