–Bloom ❤ inter-wieuw by KN–
Out on a remote tropical private island in the cortex of the Bahamas a pop-up YIKIS studio camp had been setup. Here your professional host KN sits and awaits a long awaited special guest for an interview unlike all others. She had already landed earlier on but is on the toilet knitting a sweater.
Let’s go down to the beach dear listeners and hear what KN is mumbling:
Our special guest today is nobody less than the one and only lady Oo. Or Bloom, or Bloem de Wilde de Ligny. She is an artist with many names and just as many tricks up her sleeve; from being a movie director, animator, to profound groepel athlete, she has tremendous outputs wherever she goes and seems to be doing always something.
Even a toilet break is used to be creative as she never fails to to spend her time wisely. Her biggest passion is music. She has been singing, making songs and playing music from the day that she was born. From early on (while growing up in the Netherlands) she was armed with a guitar and went on to play big ass festivals to perform her songs about breaking fingers and visually ritually beheaded Barbie dolls in front of bewildering audiences.
She had recorded an album in a studio in London, lived a weird life in Paris and somehow ended up in London again to establish more music, art and performances.
Next to making and writing her own songs she also sings and raps the monkey style with the dubstepbalkanelectropsychopartyband ‘Sam and the Womp’ , which had produced a catchy song that could be heard all over the world. I even heard it earlier on while drinking a cocktail in the hotel lobby of this remote private tropical Bahama Island.
To make a long story even longer, Bloom had recently recorded another song of her own which automatically made everyone fall in love with her. You can feel the power and the love in her ‘animal spirit’ song that would lift the listener up and empower them with animalistic beauty. Anyway let’s stop gossiping behind the artist her back as here she comes..
KN>… Hey, hey , hey!! Over here!!
Oo> Hey Hey Hallo!!!
KN> shall we sit in the sand with the crabs or sit on these specially for us flown in sunbathing relax chairs?
Oo> Let’s put the crabs in the chairs so we can play in the sand!
KN> so how’s the sweater, is it finished?
Oo> It’s a brown turtleneck, and I made it especially for you.. hope you like it! 🙂
KN> first of all and most important question over here is ;what do you like to drink to get this ‘get together thing’ started? A little ‘medicine of purpose’ so to speak.. We have 2 cooling boxes; one with cheap French Merlot wine including free grey pubic hairs and the other one is a special imported box of dragon stout beer all the way from Jamaica..
Oo> Let’s have a dragon stout for old times sake.. It’s like having a cake in a bottle!
Excellent choice! Let’s put on some fitting music while we relax here in the sunshine and our beach view.
KN> such a nice song, really makes me calm down. … I totally forgot to ask you; did you had a good flight? Did it take long with your zeppelin?
Oo> It only took me an hour and a half, as I had special power boost engines installed last week. I flew over the himalayas of course, which was beautiful. I even had a quick tea with some penguins that were there to admire the view.
KN> I came here by paper boat myself… Do you want anything to smoke with your drink? Here have a smuggled (by paper boat) Cuban Cigar!
Oo>Oh, it’s chocolate, my favourite!
KN> the view is great, he? I mean, everywhere you look it’s just dolphin blue water. I mean behind us might be palm trees and a service crew and the five star luxury hotel hiding in the bushes, but the frontal view is just blue sky and Blue Ocean. This might be an excellent opportunity to find out what your most favorite color is. Do you have a favorite color? And what is it if so?
Oo>Well, i like many colours, but my favourites are #FF0000, #19578A, and neon pink!
KN> Do you mind if we go for a little break? I’m a bit boiling from all the seriousness. Many people know (but not everyone knows) that you are world champion groepelaar. You have won every groepel championship in a row and have never been beaten. Let me see.. I’ve got a picture of you when you had beaten your opponent Arnold Van Der Knaak with a final groepel smash.. Ah yes, here it is:
Would you be in for a little sportive game of groepel? I have prepared a groepel hout for you and me and of course a official certified groepel. Would you be so kind to accept this opportunity to play a friendly recreational game of Groepel on the beach with me?
Oo>For anyone unacquainted with this fantastic game of sports, it might sound a little bit strange, but the best thing about it is that you can do it anytime, anywhere. All you need is a few humble kitchen utensils and some fruit, preferably ripe and ready. Let’s play!
KN> oo! That was fun! I had no idea how difficult it is to groepel in the boiling hot sun with a professional. But very lovely! “I enjoyed it”.
Let’s chill out with a drink for a bit and enjoy the tropical surroundings.
Hey that’s odd.. I see something in the ocean.. Oo can you pass me the binoculars? They should be behind the box of empty dragon stout beers.. … No, not the kaleidoscope but that is yours anyway (a little gift from our YIKIS sponsor) but the binocular.. Ah, yes that’s it! Let me see.. Oo? Oh! That can’t be!
It’s a sailboat disturbing our view of the blue sea.. Ridiculous! I ordered a private blue sea view and now some sailor decides to be a thorn in the eye..who’s the sailor?!
Let’s zoom in.. … No? Oo!?
Bloom?! It’s you in a sailboat!?
I might have drank a little bit too much,
or perhaps the sun is playing tricks on my mind.
You want to take a look?
Oh? You what? You want to take a look and sing a song?
Wow, so lovely.. That was a delighted revelation.. The sailboat is now moving along so we can enjoy our private Bahama view once again.
I think we must drink more just so any strange oddities become less odd. I could have sworn that it was you on that sailboat.. But you are here sipping and chilling with me on the beach.. Haha I suddenly think of the pink blob hit song ‘on the beach with my best friend’ :))
Hey what do you think? Now that the sailboat is out of the way, shall we go for a little swim in the sea? Now is the time, being tipsy and all that..
Hey, bloom stick your head in the water and check out that brain fish!
She sings a song of yours!
Wow.. Really these fish in the Bahama Sea are not only looking brainy, they are actually quiet musically.
Shall we go back? All the singing fishes and the pleasant water temperature is making me thirsty and actually a bit hungry..
Ah look at that! one of the unpaid YIKIS employees had gathered some wood for a campfire for us. Not that we need the Heath, but we can use it to warm up a Cuban Pizza on top of the flames. Mmm..
You people at home listen to some music, right? So we can enjoy the sound of the wood and the flames and the fumes of the pizza forming clouds.. And eat something.. Thanks!
Delicious, eh? Slightly burned and yet not well done in the inside; just how we like it, right?
Oo> it’s perfect!
Ah, I forgot.. Would you mind if you can borrow me and the readers at home your new sponsored kaleidoscope? I would like to chill out with some visuals while the pizza and booze meet in my stomach..
Oo> yes yes, here you go!
Thanks! Let me inspect it and poke an eye in it. Oo!? This is not just an average kaleidoscope, it got music too! These sponsors must be relaxed in their financial pockets.. Let’s see:
so nice and relaxing.. and what happens if we take a look through the other side of the kaleidoscope? let’s find out..
Doing! Thanks for that, Bloom. The trip pictures did me well. I wanted to ask if you had interest in doing a game of broekgroepelen, but really I’m loaded.. I don’t think I can even stand up from the pizza/beer/wine (with pubic hair) mix. Besides that, I forgot to bring the needed long trousers and there isn’t a lot of material around to broekgroepel with.. So let’s safe that for another time shall we?
‘Beep Beep’ ah, a text message!
It’s from a certain Graham Boosey from the Southend at Sea in the UK..
He really likes your ‘Animal Spirit’ song and asks if you are recording more solo music? You want to answer him? Or shall we just be naughty and open another drink and Light up a new Cuban cigar?
Oo> Let’s do both, at the same time! Cheers! and yes, I am recording more solo songs: I have already written quite a few but first of all there will be a little EP coming out this October
KN> excellent news! in both cases! 🙂 Don’t you think we should please Graham by putting Animal Spirit here, so people can hear it again, or for people who didn’t hear it, yet?
Beep beep’ uh, another text message? Uhm it’s from the YIKIS pop up location manager. He says that we have to round up the interview as the private island is booked in advance by some other eccentric weirdo. He also mentions that the holes in my paperboat are fixed and your zeppelin all cleaned up and ready to go.. Pretty good service, really!
Oh well it’s a time to come and a time to go, I guess. I really hope you enjoyed our stay on the Bahama’s and spending some relaxed time on costs of the Yeah I Know It Sucks high profile sponsors. I guess it’s time to split up and go our two separate paths.. The zeppelin is over there and my paper boat over at the other side..
Big hug! And have a safe trip, thanks for the good companionship, the music and the good vibes!! Ciao!!
Don’t forget your new kaleidoscope!
