Sleazefest 26 June
Beach Pavilion Timboektoe
Wijk Ann Zee North Pier, North Holland

One of my favorite events in the festival calendar, it all started in 2000 in a farm near Amsterdam when a bunch of friends decided to invite some bands to jam, Sleazefest took roots and become an established event around Amsterdam.
Sleazefest means dirty, noisy, vulgar, cheap but in reality is a kick ass party where Rock N Roll, Punk Rock and Garage rules and its a great place to listen and discover great new bands bands. Sleazefest is organized by the one and only zZz from Amsterdam

"Les Aventures Extrodinaire d'Adele Blanc-Sec" adaptacion to cinema by Luc Besson.
“The adventures, set in Paris in the years before and after World War I, revolve around the protagonist Adèle Blanc-Sec. A cynical heroine, she is initially a novelist of popular fiction, who turns to investigative journalism as her research and subsequent adventures reveal further details of the mystical world of crime. Themes of the occult, corruption, official incompetence, and the dangers of patriotism suffuse the series.”

Incredible work from French photographer Ruben Brulat, 21 and bought his camera only two years ago. "Immaculate" is a self-portrait series.

"When i started taking photographs of myself, it became obvious that it was easier to understand the malaise i had in these places, by getting naked i was feeling in total symbiosis. The more i was taking shots, the more i was understanding. Because, creating a fiction, may bring you closer to reality."

Awesome animated music video, Blockhead's 'The Music Scene'.

"An animated mind melt into a post human New York where TV and animals rule."
