Blasts from the Past: Jungle Bells! – the Grooverider Edition

It’s time to oomph the Christmas vibes in this JUngLE Calendar with some proper christmassy time hopping. So finally! It’s here. It’s time for the Jungle Bells! This is seven years ago today, exactly. December 14th, 2007.

The Jungle Bells party was at Culture Box. In my calendar I made this note: “Nis played a TREMENDOUS set!” Followed by a very enthusiastic-looking smiley. This is not a “pics from the dancefloor collection, though. This is 30 people or something warming up and cooling down in Svingsen’s Jungle Hut. With a special guest star, sort of. Enjoy.

The warm-up. A weird karrysild moment.

Drop doesn't like schnaps.

Drop doesn’t like schnapps, apparently.

Does CRS like schnapps, then? Svingsen gives it a go.

Some well-known territory here: A collection of junglistic handsigns. All kinds of body language going on here.

Nico DeFrost and CRS discovers that the time portal in the floor has reappeared.

Another one of those time portals seems to have appeared in the floor. Nico DeFrost and CRS discuss the matter. They decide to cover the portal with a pillow and figure it out later. They have a beer to celebrate the pillow idea. Then they forget about it.

Drop does one of those hand signs you know so well.

You know the drill. Handsign. Drop.

At this point, everything is semi-normal. Bass experts discussing bass stuff.

Semi-normal, apart from a giraffe suddenly crashing the party. He didn’t mingle much, but we gave him a beer and a straw.

And so it begins...

But then, this happened…

And so it begins.

And so it begins.

For those who don’t know The Grooverider Tale, here is a summary of the events.

If the cartoon was a bit too cryptic for you, here is the story: On November 24th 2007, dj Grooverider was arrested at the airport in Dubai because of a spliff that he had forgotten about in the pocket of his trousers. He was sentenced to four years imprisonment.

Hence, this elaborately decorated poster.

Now, the Free Grooverider poster goes on all sorts of crazy adventures.

Cracking nuts, solving problems.

Yup.

Yup.

Grown-ups doing grown-up things.

Grown-ups. Right here.

The adventure peaks.

The adventure peaks.

A massive tune is played! Everyone jumps up and starts raving in the living room! Well, I am, anyway.

A massive tune is played! Everyone jumps up and starts raving in the living room! Well, I certainly seem to be enjoying myself.

Tuuuune!

Tuuuune!

“What’s that pillow doing on the floor?” I ask. Or maybe I’m just thinking it. Then I forget about it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, yes, you think all this is just fun and games and silliness. A hand-drawn poster circulating in a Jungle Hut somewhere far far away from Dubai. But everything in the universe is connected, people. Everything. And Grooverider was pardoned and released in September 2008. Coincidence? I think not.

We have done out bit, let's relax!

  1. Hi blogger, i found this post on 21 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the
    search results your posts and pages will end up, so having
    reasonably low bounce rate is important for increasing your rankings naturally.
    There is very useful wordpress plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:
