Fantasie keeps up the “I’ve moved” thing very well, doesn’t she?

Hey! That doesn’t mean I’m not watching you…all of you! I sleep with one eye open, I prowl around here in the dark, lurking and looking for someone to step out of place…I’m always watching!...Tongue

Just got back and read the good news. Congrats Tim!

(Then again, I don’t know if I can take you seriously, especially with that rumour of you literally talking some poor bloke’s ear off at a party while discussing movies… Confused Maybe that skill could come in handy during your duties??? Wink)

Sick

Oh boy, does it stink in here!

If you think that was bad, you should’ve seen some of the sentences I didn’t post… Grin

Boasting comes naturally to me because I’m awesome it’s a bad character trait I enherited from my dad…  Meh

Congratulations!

This seems like a great time to ask what “Timovie” actually means. Is it Tim and Movie joined together, or what does it mean? What is a Timovie? Tongue

Thanks!
You had it right on the first guess. My name is Timothy (friends call me Timo), and “Timovie” is in fact the joining of “Timo” and “movie”.

Is that rumour still going around? Look, I did that ONCE, way back when the Lumière Brothers were just starting out, victim was a guy named Vincent, a Dutch painter, IIRC. Have you been talking to him? Shifty Eyed Grin

Somewhere in the middle of catching up with the Emp-Tels, getting sidetracked by everything that’s constantly going on in the bar, and dying because I spend too much time exploring and not enough saving my ass… Grin

My addiction to Tennis Elbow 2011 hasn’t helped, though…

Can someone tell me what this is about? I’m still in the hospital with no wifi so YouTube is out of the question Frown

Today I was told I have to stay longer again. Sigh. Will it ever end?

I’ll do my best to translate but it’s all double dutch to me.


Peter Blanker - It’s hard to remain unpretentious

A few months ago,
I was at the festival of Voelegem.
There were posters with my picture everywhere.
There were banners hanging above the streets.
With my name, in very big letters.
And once again that evening, I had a very enthusiastic audience, in the parish hall.
But when I arrived back in my hotel room,
all alone…Yes more people will have said this that night.
So on my hotel room I thought about the problem which actually troubles me a lot as a big star.
I grabbed my guitar and I made a song.
And it goes like this.

It’s hard to remain unpretensious
when you’re as good as I am
so cool, so charming and so friendly
you notice it in one second
I think when I watch in the mirror
I’m such an incredible chap
It’s hard to remain unpretensious
for a guy with as much talent as me.

The most beautiful girls
Those who have only seen me once
They immediately fall in front of my feet
At every toe at least ten
I’m also very wanted by the males
But that doesn’t satisfy me either
Because there’s not one on this world
that is as good and ideal as me.

It’s hard to remain unpretensious
when you’re as good as I am
so cool, so charming and so friendly
you notice it in one second
I think when I watch in the mirror
I’m such an incredible chap
It’s hard to remain unpretensious
for a guy with as much talent as me.

I don’t want a film carreer either
like Hauer, De Gooyer, Krabbé
and they can praise themselves lucky
That way I keep them out of unemployment
If I would apply all my talents
Then I would be top of the bill
However it’s usual
You always get kitschy
And that’s exactly what I don’t want to be.

It’s hard to remain unpretensious
when you’re as good as I am
so cool, so charming and so friendly
you notice it in one second
I think when I watch in the mirror
I’m such an incredible chap
It’s hard to remain unpretensious
for a guy with as much talent as me.

 

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

The video is “‘t Is moeilijk bescheiden te blijven”, by Peter Blanker. I’m sure you know it.

Edit: Lucien21 beat me to it…


Sorry to hear you’ll have to stay longer again. Frown
Complications?

Oh that one, of course I know it! It’s about me Wink.

Yes, complications. I seem to have an infection again. If I’m unlucky this will take a long time.
