    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Dutch media is reporting that former Dutch prime minister Dries van Agt suffered a heavy intracranial hemorrhage two weeks ago.

    Terrorists & Topical Terrorist Targets

    I remember that. I had the year before that read an article about his kidnapping and thought he could be a good unique pick.

    Curse Of The Eurovision

    Might as well post here what some of the major newspapers are saying about the location. Just put it in your prefered online translate-program. Volkskrant Trouw Parool Amsterdam seems like the most logical option but there is also a lot of pushback towards it. Like with Venice there have been a lot of complaints how masstourism (which increased since Amsterdam became world heritage) has made the city unlivable. So there are people who don't want to bring an event there which creates more masstourism. Also the rest of the country oftenly has issues with everything being placed in Amsterdam. I assume it is a bit of capital-envy. As for The Hague, while it is the 3rd largest city (and Seat of Government) it however doesn't have a University, which in turn prevents it from having a lot of students and therefor they don't really have a large concertveneu (as far as i know)

    Curse Of The Eurovision

    I read some Dutch articles about this. The issue is the location, while Amsterdam has a lot of big concerthalls they are also very fully booked throughout the year (so they really need to cancel some stuff). Also there are concerns about Amsterdam because they are already trying to control the masstourism there. Rotterdam is also being named because they have a big concerthalls for the occasion (which might also be scheduled full). But if they want it in a big city that isn't Amsterdam then Rotterdam seems like the best option. Other places i heard being mentioned where Maastricht, Arnhem (with one of the biggest footbal stadiums), Zwolle and in lesser degrees The Hague (barely in the conversation at this point) and Utrecht. The reason why Maastricht keeps floathing to the top is the amount of work they already put into it (they seem to already have a very detailed worked out-plan ready) and because they clearly are campaigning the hardest so far to get it their. All proposals apparently need to be send to the AVROTROS (broadcasting organisation) who then decide.

    Curse Of The Eurovision

    Didn't follow the Eurovision (not my thing) but the news that we won was unavoidable. I seriously am not happy with it. First off, this is a tiny country and hosting an event like this will bring an insane amount of tourists to a very small space (especially if it's held in Amsterdam). Also who are paying for it. The gevernment? Does that mean there will be less budget left for the rest of the cultural branche? Not looking forward to next year and am secretly hoping they are holding it in Maastricht as some newssources are claiming (Nice and far from where i live).

    General Non School Massacre Thread

    That's 3 kilometers from where i live. I use to take that tram when i lived closer to there. So i have been following it all day, also heard helicopters fly over most of the day. My girlfriend was even 200 meters from where he and his car where found. Still quite shocked that this happened so close to me (i recognised all the locations shown on tv).

    This not a predictions game, this is a response time game. If you don't post fast enough you have no chance of winning. Completely pointless. 1

    DL Prediction Game 2019

    wow... was not expecting that. Must say i made the list purely for the predictions and not to last the year. I don't think many on it will die.

    DL Prediction Game 2019

    I am loving that the deadline is still in my timezone. It's tradition, i guess. In the past i never entered because i feared it would be unfair since i would be able to see other peoples unique picks but this is nicely solved through removing the unique pick-bonus. i'll try to get a list finnished in time, but it might not be easy because i am currently abroad. Also thank you again for hosting it, book.

    Selma Blair

    Selma Blair, star of Cruel Intentions and the Hellboy-films, has MS. Not a big name actress but i knew her by name, she was a little bit famous in these early 2000s. So she might one too watch.
