    Nice pics, but please don't tell me that Rasa - Everything you see is me is raer!!!

    I have 2 of these and have been passing that shit up since like 99, without looking twice.

    ummmmmm, I was being sarcastic, kinda like Godfather Don with the Jigsaw record.... smile and relax in knowing that it was a joke that you didn't get.... anyhow, with that I present to you... PRAGE

    PRAGUE

    Honestly, I wasn't thrilled with Prague, aside from diggin' and the visuals of the city which were just off the hook... I felt like there were a million stag party's going on around me and I kept getting ripped off from those Frickin' food carts and the food i had was shitty... if you are going to get drunk, you will have a great time I'm sure!

    Czech graffiti


    I saw numerous junkies shooting up in the city, downtown, in the middle of day... here's the floor of the main train station


    Beautiful looking city though
















    A'YO!


    Yankee's go home!


    The buskers in Europe are REAL!


    Cold as ice


    church


    scary puppets


    they ripped me off


    which is why they needed to post this warning


    fuck their sausage


    the main bridge


    NEXT UP -- KRAKOW, POLAND

  • djsheepdjsheep 3,640 Posts
    KRAKOW (pronounced CRACK-OV) POLAND...
    I love Krakow, possibly one of the best cities in Europe I've visited, they do not have the Euro and people there are cool as fuck...

    I stayed in the jewish area


    the graffiti there was amazing






    the architecture, buildings, old signs, old stuff, etc were just nuts














    pizzy my smack


    memorial in the jewish ghetto


    i like signs that i can not read, this is a private area


    sing sing


    a lady feeding birds from her window


    an ugnaught (for my star wars fans)


    A'YO


    DJing has gone commercial...


    AUTO CRACK


    Schindler's factory


    mushrooms


    YES PLEASE!


    Cherry vodka, now this stuff is dangerous, I haven't been that drunk since I was in my 20s.... it's a slow creeper... BEWARE


    Polish food, looks plain, but tastes great!


    these dumplings are off the heezy!


    With strutter RAD doin' it up Poland style


    That's just how I live...


    Yes, there's a shop there called FART


    lovely lavender


    WHATS UP NOGGER?


    This kid woulda got shot wielding a fake uzi if he was in the states




    This beautiful little lady told me not to step on her dress, it was a bit hard considering I couldn't get in the club any other way


    OH NO, this is bringing back REALLY bad memories






    The clubs out there were kinda off the hook




    NEXT UP - THE AUSCHWITZ + THE SALT MINES

  • djsheepdjsheep 3,640 Posts
    THE SALT MINES are a little outta town in Krakow, and 130 meters underground... they've built all kinds of crazy stuff down there like chapels and statues, etc...

    But Attention the shaft






    Event the floor's made out of salt!










    this water is 90% salt



  • djsheepdjsheep 3,640 Posts
    AUSCHWITZ

    This is the German concentration camp that was situated just outside of Krakow... they have preserved it for people to better understand the things that went down. I haven't felt that kind of bad energy in my life ever, and was silent for the whole 3.5 hour tour, they had hair, clothing, glasses, personal belongings from the millions of jews who were killed, I was taken into the crematorium, showers, living quarters, etc. It was really sad. Here are photos from the outside, just to show how big and what kind of magnitude this was... R.I.P. to everyone who suffered at the hand of the Nazi's.

    Now, I guess you guys wanna see some record stores and records and shit, so here...

    I don't think the word "free" means the same thing in Amsterdam


    My favorite spot in Amsterdam












    Amsterdam markets




    RAERS


    Some other spot in Amsterdam


    RAER


    A'YO A'YO A'YO


    Amazing record spot in Prague


    Another amazing spot






    SMOULOVE!


    FUCK THIS SHOP - High Fidelity in Krakow, I've never been treated so bad in any record store in the world... record store owners who name their store after a movie should be shot. Do not waste your time and head straight to strutter RAD if you are out in Krakow, all the records in that shop are G+ to VG- condition at best...

    fuck that dude with the white hair

    Word. Amazing city.

    However, I had a different experience at High Fidelity (I was there in 2004), that white haired dude was nice as all get out to me and was puzzled why I wanted Polish records...sold me Karolak, Neimen, Novi singers, Grupa ABC, etc for 4 to 6 zloty each(at the time that was about $1-2US) and kept trying to get me to buy a $500 Elvis record...musta found out Yanks like me got away with a steal...

    but yeah, Krakow is a amazingly beautiful city...

    Sheep.....

    great shots. Good to see someone living a good life. Glad you found records in Prague, cuz it sucked for me. No one coughed up the leads so I settled on some lame joints.

    and those Amsterdam frites met mayonaise were Killin me.
    thanks as always

    Cheers.........

  • whats the record spots in prague???
    do you have the adress?
    ...need to know because i am about to go there...

  • djsheepdjsheep 3,640 Posts
    "please" or "thanks in advance" would be a nice touch....

    cheers for the comments people... i havent posted pics from a lot of trips i did lately, but this one was not dj related and more visual

    Cosmo, i ain't a smoker either, just make sure you take the trip up blueberry hill with mr. shadow, it's worth it...

    yeah homeboy had a epileptic screaming fit at me when i pointed out his calculations for my stack were wrong, when i pointed it out, he started freaking out and getting frustrated, asking me if i knew "math"... then to make things worse, he started saying he wasn't giving a discount (not that i was even asking) and acting like a downright prick waving his flappy hair everywhere pacing and sighing... after acting like a bitch, he realized he was wrong (hahahahaha), i threw the money at him and walked out cursing.... i think when i was drunk, i tried to find his shop to take a piss, maybe a shit, later that evening....

    i didn't really wanna buy the records there because you can get all the stuff cheaper on eBay any day of the week (collectro store designed to lure in tourists). i would suggest hitting the markets, you will get your polish raer for pennies.... anyone going out there, make sure you hit up "rad" off this board.

    peace.

    sheep - - this is a little cheeky i know, but any chance you could offer up which markets of other stores are worth a poke around in krakow ... i'm heading over to there, Budapest and Croatia in August.

    thanks in advance...

    RAER



    Why do many people like this record??

    There are 3 good tracks on that record, "Chanting," "Within The Sound" and "When Will The Day Come" (which is a Belmont Plateau classic.)

  • CosmoCosmo 9,767 Posts
    I don't think we've traded anything holmes. But yeah "When Will The Day Come" is the jernt.

  • djsheepdjsheep 3,640 Posts
    That RASA is dope, couldn't pass up a double for a Euro....

  • Great post, Sheep...I always dig your photos.

  • so what's the deal w/ Prague, exactly? I'm gonna be in the city for about 6 weeks for a summer abroad program. Any spots (RR or not) I should hit up? How bad are the vendors abt ripping off Yankee tourists like us?

    Outstanding! I always look forward to your travelogues.

    I'll post record info in the next week or so when i can get the maps and business cards all sorted out.

    As far as Prague, you want to make sure you learn the currency, like 100CZK is $6 US dollars. It's easy to confuse 1000CZK for 100CZK when getting change from a 2000CZK note. And vendors (especially the dodgy sausage carts, no homo) will take advantage time-and-time again of the fact you are a tourist. It happened to me numerous times over a 3-day period, one time they wouldn't even give me my loot back (about $50). There's signs at all the vendors saying to check your change, obviously cuz they get so many complaints and can use the small sign as an excuse to plead ignorance.

    Just a friendly travel warning, like I said, the city is beautiful, but it's literally 50/50 of locals/tourists these days....

    Be careful around the main station too, it's like trainspotting but in a building, the police are usually around, but if they are not, you will have people surrounding you waiting to pick your pockets. Wallet and everything in front pockets, bags by your side and electronics stashed away.

    This has been a friendly travel warning bought to you by the DJ Sheep....

    peace.
