Blasts from the Past: Jungle Bells 2005
Yipeee, once again we’re boosting the Christmassy vibes with another round of Jungle Bells! – this time we’re time travelling back to Jungle Bells anno 2005. This is December 16th, nine years ago, exactly, today.
Warming up at the Jungle Hut. On the surface look of things we are quite possibly flipping through the photos from Chriszka’s Birthday Bash at Nadsat. But what is REALLY going on? Who knows which devious plans the Jungle Monster is up to. I am oblivious to this at this point, of course. I have no idea. Looking happy, feeling safe.
And here we are. Yup, we should have looked more closely into Mariiii’s eyes back then, I totally see that now.
More people arrive for the warm-up.
That would be my wine glass there on the table. Quite possibly the empty one. And to the… OH MY GOD! Look what has happened! The Jungle Monster has switched skins! It has jumped into poor Claus!
Look at this! Claus feels the burning sensation of the Jungle Monster settling in while Mariii discreetly leaves the room for a bit, inconspicious styleeeee.
“No voices in my heeaaaaad, I’m freeeeee, I’m freeeee, di-da-di-dum!” Mariii enjoys her newly won freedom while we all get ready to leave for Culture Box.
Aaaaaand, arrival at Jungle Bells, Culture Box. That’s a p-r-e-t-t-y junglistic t-shirt you’ve got yourself there, Collins! Also, you are clearly feeling it. 10 points on the Junglistic Scale.
“I’m freeeeee, I’m so freeeee”.
Meanwhile, the new victim of the Jungle Monster hangs out in the front room, putting on a brave face.
Look what it does to people! Everyone in its vicinity is in imminent danger!
Most of the time, things look normal, though. Just think of Mariii. I mean, HOW many episodes before we discovered anything! 13, yes, that’s right!
Maybe we should reevaluate what some of these handsigns actually mean. All things considered. The forces of shapeshifting are strong at this party.
With all this is mind, a pic like this looks like something out of The Devil’s Advocate, all of a sudden! Are these women real? Will scaly skin suddenly appear?
Collins sees an opportunity and decides to check for scaly skin.
Yes, that’s what I mean! The better you look, the more you see! (Using the tagline of the hyper-paranoid masterpiece Glamorama seems so appropriate.)
We just KNOW what kind of devilish hand sign is on its way here.
But back to the innocent jungle vibes of a good dj set. I am clearly feeling it in all kinds of ways.
Casparados has hit the decks. Yipeeee!
And look what happens! FEELING IT!
EVERYONE’S FEEEEEELING IT!
Dj NIS joins the decks. Possibly a massive back-to-back-to-back session going on here, because Drop seems ready to jump in, too.
The horns massive is feeling it!
More feeeeeling it all over the place! (This one caught by Miss Popo).
All these feelings. Time for group hugs. You know how it goes with these jungle creatures.

What does it mean, feeling it on the dancefloor? It’s all described in detail (and pictures) in How to be a Junglist: The Dancefloor Moves. For a more personal (and verbal) approach, read my thoughts on dancing and raving and why I love it in How to Be a Junglist: Going to London.
