Time Out For 3 Weeks *)

Noordereiland, Rotterdam, Netherlands

It's time to hold my horses in Blog- and Flickrland and concentrate on the making of a film I promised to a good friend months ago.

It's a fact of my life that I have no options but going full throttle or not at all. One might say it's one of my 9 weird points.
Sorry for this, I'll miss you all too!

*) Note:
...or as much longer as necessary or as much shorter as possible (that's the wording of our government when announcing public works).

Best of luck in this endeavour. We shall miss you - but I understand how blogging can take up much time that should be dedicated to more important life's projects. Keep healthy, happy and enjoy the holidays!

We'll miss you, Koos...

Have fun behind the camera!

Love
Dale

Koos F said...

Keep watching this place, something worthwhile still coming up.

Koos, veel plezier met het maken van je film. Ik mag hopen dat deze film niet het einde betekend van je blogje. Ik kijk wekelijks en zie vaak mooie foto's en lees je leuke verhalen.Het is leuk om de wereld te zien door vanuit een ander z'n perspectief.

Groet, Johan H.
Sorry, folks, this time in Dutch.

Koos F said...

Great to have a comment in my mother's tongue!
't Is niet het einde van mijn blog, Johan, slechts een tijdelijke noodstop.
Ik stel voor dat je morgen nog even komt kijken en vooral luisteren want ik wil Het Beste Kersliedje ooit (the best Christmas song ever) embedden en dat heb ik bijna voormekaar.
Dank voor een heel groot compliment.

Hi Koos, if you go to my profile, you can see the Power Chords blog, it is where I post lyrics I'm working on and mp3's. Doreen is on there. Hope you like it.

That was an intriguing Christmas song. Thanks.

Koos, Have fun with your project! I know what you mean about focusing on one thing in order to give it your best.

Thanks for the Google links. I'll have fun with those later - doing a little world travelling!

Later,
Rache

PS: I really like the Christmas song. It's very different from anything I've heard before.

Ahva Rahn said...

See you soon. Safe travels in the world of movie making. My favourite christmas song is The Fairytale of New York.

Merry Christmas, Koos, and thank you for your kind words of support in 2006.
-Paul.

Anne-Marie said...

Have a fun time with the movie, Koos. You're always missed but it's important to be create and have fun projects.

As for the Who, yeah, if you can, catch them again.

Erik-Jan said...

Hi Koos,
So worst case you will be back next year!!!
Merry Christmas and an Happy New Year for you, Val and Cindy.
Hope to hear from you before though.
Erik-Jan.

Koos F said...

Hi Paul

I am not really blogging, as you know, but your comment on Fay Lovsky (aka Lovesick) said: "My favourite christmas song is The Fairytale of New York. "
Was new to me and I made a mental note to go and find out.
Just a moment ago I went to see what my "another brilliant Canadian", known from my personal links, had to say this time.

Well, you see it coming. He writes: "Funny the things that choke people up. For George HW Bush, it's apparently Jeb (though more likely, for the curse-word his family name has become). For me, it's this song. And if it gets to you, too, you may know that December 18 will mark the sixth anniversary of Kirsty MacColl's death."
You've guessed it: "this song" is A Fairytale Of New York...

And the Pogues, or Kirsty McColl for that matter, were almost as unknown to me as Fay Lovsky must have been to you.

Koos F said...

And then for all who followed the remarks about Windows and Mac, here is the word I have to type by way of word verification right now: eymac
(Val's my witness).
Works right away, don't have to type a different word just to make sure.

Ahva Rahn said...

Yes Koos, that is the one, and it does get to me too. That is an interesting site link too. I think I will keep an eye on that one.

Coincidences. Eh? There were a lot of them here at home yesterday. I'll not air that stuff, as everyone has enough on their own plate to deal with, but one thing I notice is that life is some sort of symphony; everything is related.

My very best to you and Val. (now take your blogging sabbatical and I’ll see you in 2007!).

gypsy noir said...

a lovely little ditty koos..
as long as you get some enjoyment from making the film it will be worth the while..im sure you will do a good job ..

Dale said...

The Christmas song is beautiful!


Are three weeks up yet?

Koos F said...

Oh that's such a sweet thing to say, Dale. (Swallows with difficulty).
I'll let you in on a big secret.
You can download the Christmas song, Fay Lovsky's Christmas was a friend of mine.
It's 4.4MB and you just do the right mouse click save target as - trick.
Don't tell the others, o.k.?

Koos F said...

PS
And I am sure she developed the opening animation on
her Official Site especially with you in mind, Dale. As you've said before: things are meant to be - and apparently this song was meant for you.

Dale said...

Koos I can't download it, but I got a real kick out of the animation!

Thanks!

:)

Hi Koos,
I just wanted to wish you all the best for the holiday season and continued health and happiness for 2007. I had already listened to your wonderful song the first time I popped by, but happily gave it a second listen. It's got a nice rhythm.

Happy Christmas!

Love,
Anne-Marie and Austin

Anyway, looking forward to your next photography adventure.

Erik-Jan said...

Hi Koos,
It looks a little like the old post but it is a brand new one.
So you are back...at least a little.
Still dry feet inside the Luxor?
Erik-Jan.

Hi Koos! I've been away too - but lurking. Thank you so much for your comment on my blog over the holidays.

I plan to put up a new post soon!

Love,

Happy new year koos :)

VallyP said...

Beta seems to work for you, Koosje. If this comment works, we'll know it's OK!

Koos F said...

It Woyx

Jodie said...

But for some mysterious reason, mon papa, a bunch of your commentators have turned to anonymity ;)

PS: Beta works well for us too

Erik-Jan said...

I get all sorts of warnings now, visiting this page....
Do not know what you did but something has changed.

Koos F said...

I switched to the Yahoo based version, as they said it was now beyond beta. Now I don't get the profile pics any more, and some commenters are now anonymous. Yuck

gypsy noir said...

cant you go back to original?..

Koos F said...

There's hope, Gypsymine. Your question arrived after the switch and both your name and p-pic are loud and clear.

Dale said...

Oh! Oh!

Do I show up? Do I? Do I?

Erik-Jan said...

For non-bloggers there is no option.....
Wanna see my face....click on my name. Do not be horrified...

Lannio said...

Happy New Year Koos,

It's been a long time ... we miss you, but understand how life can keep you away.

Hope you are doing well. Oh how I love photography.

btw, erik-jan, I clicked and wasn't horrified in the least!

Rache said...

Hi. Koos, Just checking in - also wanted to see if I'm still anonymous.....

Erik-Jan said...

Thanks Lannio, you are the best!!

Metalchick said...

Just dropping by to say Hi!

Hope all is well for you.

Take care.

Dale said...

Soooo.....

Exactly how long is 3 weeks in Dutch??
