Maangchi’s Gapshida video is finally up! Enjoy :).
It was a night of tipsy fun at the Jameson Film Experience. The secret film was Drive! Have you seen it? If you missed the event, you can see the film and a bunch of others this week at Amsterdam Film Week.
In association with the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Jameson Film Experience will be hosting a nice evening of cinema, Djs, and of course whiskey on Thursday, October 27. The venue and programming is still a secret but I think it’s safe to say that you can’t really go wrong with movies and whiskey.
Loving these photographs by Italian photographer Lele Savari. The series below is titled “Villa Fiorita Psychiatric Institute.” I’m inspired to go out and take more photo stories in Amsterdam.
Here’s his story in the series Kids in Italia by 55DSL:
A spontaneous trip. An adventurous ride with a Dutch trucker and 14 hours of hitchhiking later, we finally made it to beautiful Paris! I never desired to see this city, the allure of romance and history never really appealed to me. I came with low expectations and left filing this little trip as one of the best holidays I’ve ever experienced. Maybe it was because I was there with some really cool people, or maybe Paris is all that it’s cracked up to be.
Now, 8 months later we finished editing the footage from our trip. Music by Arun Sood, and the sexy French voice is Julie Fraysse.
For all you expats who are forced to visit AH every single day, this is for you.

The Buddhist film festival Europe will be held in Amsterdam’s Tuschinski theater this weekend. The two-day event is a platform for feature films, documentaries and television programs that are inspired or influenced by Buddhism. The festival opens with a screening of Takahashi Banmei’s ‘Zen‘, a fascinating look into the life and times of 13th-century monk Dogen, founder of the Soto sect in Zen Buddhism. Other highlights include Rob Epstein’s acclaimed biopic of Allen Ginsberg ‘Howl‘ and John J. Healey’s documentary ‘The Practice of The Wild‘, which traces the career of Buddhist poet and environmentalist Gary Snyder. Whether you are a devout monk, a film buff or merely an intrigued onlooker, the scheduled films are diverse and interesting enough to keep everyone happy and at peace. Feel the Zen.
