 RACE PLANET INDOOR GO-KARTS

I would rather drive go karts than 97% of all other activities in the world, combined. I made a list, I weighed my options and it’s true. Indoor go karting is is the top 3% of all possible things that a sentient being can do.

Cinema Remake – art & film

Nate’s problems with Godzilla

1) Does Godzilla love humans or hate other monsters?

2) Either way you have to admire the tenacity of the soldiers willing to fire thousands of rounds into something that can’t be injured by bullets.

3) Even after the monsters have been fighting in San Francisco for some time and the Golden Gate bridge has been destroyed there is an office full of office people doing office work, that are SURPRISED by the MONSTERS fighting just outside their window

4) I like that part where the soldiers whisper, like the Praying mantis monster is listening.

5) Hey helicopter pilots, maybe fly a little bit out of the reach of the monster, like a dog on a chain.

PUNCH AND JUDY (JAN KLAASEN) ON DAM SQUARE

Jan Klassen loves his family but lacks the communication skills to express his frustration with the modern world, so he beats his wife relentlessly

In Dutch, Punch and Judy are called Jan Klaasen. And now you can see a good old fashioned puppet show like they’ve been doing for 100’s of years, for free, right in the middle of Dam Square. It’s in Dutch, but your kids will laugh as Jan gets whacked in the head 50 times anyway.

PUNCH AND JUDY ON DAM SQUARE (JAN KLAASEN) |DAM SQUARE | Every hour from 1PM to 4PM – Every Sunday UNTIL October | € FREE

 LOCO TOKO PICTURE SHOW at BADA BOOM

Improv comics make fun of movies while you make suggestions and laugh.
