19: Veg Auction Museum

Posted by Jonti Bloom on June 27, 2007

What can I tell you? We left Amsterdam, still in search of this Cherry person. Ended up at a Vegetable Auction Museum! There’s no way this sort of stuff is going to get my awards cabinet filled with glittering prizes…

The Vegetable Auction Museum

Posted by Ian Jones on June 27, 2007

Ian's treat

I’ve been to every museum in Amsterdam and environs and at least three of them were brilliant, even though I only got to go in one. In order of preference I would put them at:

3. Energetica. Through the window I could see bits of giant machines and an antique radio. A good start for a museum.

2. Museum of Our Lord in the Attic. Not sure which Lord they’ve got up there, but am assuming it’s one of the less omnipresent ones. Thoth would be good. Or Hanuman.

1. Vegetable Auction Museum at Broeker Veiling. I’ve read a lot of speculative fiction, but nothing could prepare me for this. Remarkable.

Also, Mr Van Loon of the Houseboat Museum was very kind. Is he related to the Van Loons of the Museum Van Loon? I’m assuming a schism.

18: Sniffing About

Posted by Jonti Bloom on June 26, 2007

Jonti Bloom is beating new paths in quality entertainment. Today I’m following some bloke and his sister as they wander around Amsterdam in search of a girl whom both of them know isn’t even in the country.

I’ll dust off my dinner jacket for award season, I don’t think!

15: Van Gogh’s Cherry

Posted by Jonti Bloom on June 23, 2007

Let it be known that this documentary will not be going anywhere near the red light district of Amsterdam. The reason for this is complex, well, it’s not actually. It’s fairly simple. I was the director of a hidden camera show in 2002 “shag and shoot” which involved British celebrities visiting prostitutes and running off without paying. Suffice to say that Jonti Bloom is persona non grata in the area and will be camera operating with his hood up.
