Notes from Das Boot 137

Antwerp, Belguim
London show was cool, Koko is a great place to do a show, it was sold out and I got to see a bunch of people I haven’t seen in quite a while. Paris show was completely the opposite venue-wise but also great, small punk rock sized room at La Maronquinerie,great house crew and one of the shittiest load outs in memory. Push all the gear half a block (in traffic) to the bus & trailer that’s double parked and the bus is on a hill so everything has to be held in so it won’t roll out. A guy who we had blocked in took out his displeasure by pissing on the trailer, lotsa larfs. We are in Antwerp today, it’s beautiful where we are. Had an amazing lunch (pictured). Basically a variation on gravy fries. A really nice beef stew(braised beef and onion in a beer based stew) served over fries, it sounds like diner fare but it was better, especially with a beer. It came with a salad that of course was covered in mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is a huge part of Belgian culture and much like the Inuits who have 75 different words for “snow”, the Belgians have over 100 words for mayonnaise.

don't insult it by calling it gravy fries

    You know what they put on fries in Belgium instead of ketchup? Mayonnaise …. I seen ’em do it, man, they fuckin’ drown ’em in that shit. I don’t know if that’s the case with Burger King, I didn’t go in there ……

    Mayo-naise ….. cause it’s got no where else to go.

    Hey, you know what I just noticed? … where’s the frickin’ protein in that meal? You got fries, gravy, noodles, bread and beer all in one meal. Why, there’s so many hard hittin’ carbs on that table, I need a damn insulin shot just looking at the picture!!

    Hey, you know what else I noticed? … you spelled “Belgium” wrong. If you noticed, I notice alot of things (I can just hear Tim now saying “Yeah, and I just noticed that your a pain in the ass, now shut the fuck up”).
