Vanochtend kwam vriend/vormgever Sander Spijker van mijn boek, Mijn zoon Jordi (de imbeciel brengen.

Het boek gaat over de relatie tussen mijn zoon Jordi en mij. Ik heb geprobeerd een boek te schrijven waardoor de lezer even alles kan vergeten wat zo serieus wordt gebracht, lachen van begin tot einde zou voor u van mij als schrijver heel erg fijn zijn.

Het is een prachtig boek geworden, ik ben er heel blij mee. U kunt het boek kopen ib mijn webshop of bij de Readshop op het Marktplein in Nieuwleusen.

Title: Drawing of the day, Iggy Pop | Artist: Pieter Zandvliet | Category: Various

James Newell Osterberg Jr. (born April 21, 1947), better known as Iggy Pop, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. Designated the “Godfather of Punk”,[1][2] he was the vocalist and lyricist of influential proto-punk band the Stooges, who were formed in 1967 and have disbanded and reunited multiple times since.[3]

Initially playing a raw, primitive style of rock and roll, the Stooges sold few records in their original incarnation and gained a reputation for their confrontational performances, which often involved acts of self-mutilation by Pop.[4] He had a long collaborative and personal friendship with David Bowie over the course of his career, beginning with the Stooges’ album Raw Power in 1973. With both musicians having relocated to West Berlin to wean themselves off their respective drug addictions, Pop began his solo career by collaborating with Bowie on the 1977 albums The Idiot and Lust for Life with Pop usually contributing the lyrics. Throughout his career, Pop is well known for his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics, poetic lyrics and distinctive voice.[5][6][7] He was one of the first performers to do a stage-dive and popularized the activity.[8][9] Pop, who traditionally (but not exclusively) performs bare-chested, also performed such stage theatrics as rolling around in broken glass and exposing himself to the crowd.[9]

Pop’s music has encompassed a number of styles over the course of his career, including garage rockpunk rockhard rockheavy metalart rocknew wavejazzblues, and electronic.[10][11] Though his popularity has fluctuated through the years, many of Pop’s songs have become well known, including “Search and Destroy” and “I Wanna Be Your Dog” by the Stooges, and his solo hits “Lust for Life“, “The Passenger” and “Real Wild Child (Wild One)“. In 1990, he recorded his first and only Top 40 U.S. hit, “Candy“, a duet with B-52’s singer Kate Pierson. Pop’s song “China Girl” became more widely known when it was re-recorded by co-writer Bowie, who released it as the second single from his most commercially successful album, Let’s Dance (1983). The UK single release of Bowie’s version reached No. 2 for one week on June 14, 1983, while the US release reached No. 10. Bowie re-recorded and performed many of Pop’s songs throughout his career.

Although Pop has had limited commercial success, he has remained both a culture icon and a significant influence on a wide range of musicians in numerous genres. The Stooges’ album Raw Power has proved an influence on artists such as Sex Pistols,[12] the Smiths,[13] the Sisters of Mercy,[14] Red Hot Chili Peppers,[15] and Nirvana.[16] His solo album The Idiot has been cited as a major influence on a number of post-punk, electronic and industrial artists including Depeche ModeNine Inch Nails and Joy Division,[17][incomplete short citation] and was described by Siouxsie Sioux as a “re-affirmation that our suspicions were true: the man is a genius.”[18] He was inducted as part of the Stooges into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. In January 2020, Pop received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award

Title: Drawing of the day, Francoise Hardy | Artist: Pieter Zandvliet | Category: Various

Françoise Madeleine Hardy (French pronunciation: ​[fʁɑ̃swaz madlɛn aʁdi]; born 17 January 1944) is a French singer-songwriter. She made her musical debut in the early 1960s on Disques Vogue and found immediate success with her song “Tous les garçons et les filles“. As a leading figure of the yé-yé movement, Hardy “found herself at the very forefront of the French music scene” and became “France’s most exportable female singing star”, recording in various languages, appearing in movies, touring throughout Europe, and gaining plaudits from musicians such as Bob DylanMiles Davis and Mick Jagger.[1] With the aid of photographer Jean-Marie Périer, Hardy began modeling and soon became a popular fashion icon as well.[1]

As the yé-yé era drew to a close in the late 1960s, Hardy sought to reinvent herself, casting off the fashionable, girl-next-door image that Périer had created for her and abandoning the “cute” and catchy compositions that had characterized her repertoire up to that point.[1][2] She began working with more accomplished songwriters such as Serge Gainsbourg[3] and Patrick Modiano.[4] Her 1971 album La question represented an important turning point in her career, moving towards a more mature style; it remains her most acclaimed work and has generated a dedicated cult following over the years.[1][5] The early 1970s also marked the beginning of Hardy’s renowned involvement with astrology, becoming an expert and writer on the subject over the years.[1][5]

Hardy remains a popular figure in music and fashion[6][7] and is considered an icon of French pop and of the 1960s.[8] The singer is also considered a gay icon and has “repeatedly declared that her most devoted friends and fans are gay”.[9] Several of her songs and albums have appeared in critics’ lists.
