Here’s a compilation of outstanding performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. Shivers ran down my spine watching these videos.
Kings of Leon
Rage Against The Machine
The Rolling Stones
And in closing, The Prodigy with Firestarter, an alternate take. Very profound and moving.
Here at Kunstemaecker, we love talking about beer. We love drinking it even more, but we don’t always talk beer. Sometimes we talk about politics, economy, culture or religion. The latter because our pub is situated in front of a church. We have interesting discussions with believers, agnosts and atheists.
Back in 2007, Peter Joseph released a web movie called Zeitgeist. It presents historical data in a new light. It shows the relationship between religion and astrology. I bet that sounds pretty boring to you, but give this movie a chance and it just might blow your mind.
What if I told you Jesus never even existed? What if I told you Christianity was ‘invented’ by the Romans as a means of political pressure? Or what if I told you that the 12 apostles were simply a metaphor for star constellations? Great topics for a profound conversation in our opinion. At the very least, this movie will make you question what you thought you knew.
Go ahead, grab a bag of crisps and watch it, you have nothing better to do anyway.

How about a nice bottle of Belgian craft beer to give to your loved ones? Did you know we offer a 20 % discount on all beers to take away?
Pop by and choose from our extensive range of beers, we even have some very special vintage bottles on offer.
November 12 is the 316th day of the year (317th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 49 days remaining until the end of the year.
Henceforth, this day shall be known as “Piss-off-a-Scotsman-day”. Not that we have anything against Scotsmen or anyone in particular. We are all one people, but it’s just so much fun to laugh at our apparent differences and point out the inaccuracies in them.
For once, it’s a Belgian taking the piss out of someone else and not the other way around.
So, if you were to bump into a Scotsman today be sure to remind him or her that:
10. the ‘Scottish’ bagpipes as we know them today were imported from Catalonia (where they are called ‘gaita de fol’) and in their earlier form, they came via India, to Greece, to Italy and the rest of Europe (e.g. Sweden where it is known as ‘sackpipa’) before they reached the British Isles. There’s nothing Scottish about them really. Scotland was like the last place in Europe where they hadn’t heard of the bagpipes. When the rest of us were sick and tired of listening to the bagpipes, you started playing them. And out of all the beautiful instruments out there, the Scots pick the bloody bagpipes as a national instrument. What were they thinking? Comedian Danny Bhoy agrees with me (youtube video in marvelous 240p);

A new round up of freshly picked music and we’re kicking off with Savages, a post-punk band hailing from the UK, their music sounds weirdly familiar, almost as if I grew up with this band like I did with bands like Sisters of Mercy. This featured song “Shut Up” might become a cult classic. In any case, their debut album “Silence Yourself” has been nominated for the BBC Sound of 2013.
