Im back... from The garden of earthly delights


Once my brain stops doing loops I will write something. I have a very hard time negotiating these mega parties... but now i need to sleep. All I can say is I saw "The garden of earthly delights" by Hieronymus bosch in person at the Prado while I was there... and then I lived it... its very very hard to figure out my feelings about it.

Welcome Back! I live in Madrid, and this year's Orgullo Gay (Gay Pride) was apparently more Boschian than normal (I say 'apparently' because I was being a good boy and looking after two hetero English lady friends) - my lady friends, being healthy types, went for an early morning run the day after and they really DID use the word "Bosch" - people vomiting in the streets, the police handcuffing people, revellers banging away on the shop windows, etc. - all this at 8 in the morning. And a gay friend said much the same thing (with a note of shock). That's what happens when you combine a street party with your football team reaching the semis of the World Cup....

Hey Crumpet, Im so glad you wrote that! It really was so strange, it was an amazing experience but so much to process?!?!?

David Mason said...

Francisco, i DID like the Strong party I went on Thursday or Friday, i cant remember which day, it was fun. Were you there?.. It was fun but then it got too crazy for me. I'll write about it later.

It was a wild and crazy weekend, wasn't it? I saw you on a street corner in the Chueca on Sunday evening around 8:30, just before you went into a bar or restaurant. But you were in conversation with two friends and I didn't want to interrupt you. our big smile and muscles are just as nice in person, BTW. :)

David Mason said...

Thanks Holly!
and Sobe you should have come up and said HI!!! ???

But when we, you readers see you in person we FREEZE and think we don't want to be stalkery!?! That's what happened in the eagle NYC that time 6 months ago.

I hope also you didn't take drugs as I have said before you are my POSTER BOY for not doing that but don't lie for my sake, I just want the honest truth.

I had such slutty times when I was in Madrid, so I am very jealous, but very uncharacteristically mind you. I met a Brazilian on the METRO and we hooked up right away?! He did the rub the crotch hop off at this stop thing! And then a hot muscle latino trainer in a gym there invited me back for a 'work out' after hours, and then there was the guy in Chueca who I banged after a night at a bar... oh I'm so jealous you got to go.

NY is just hot and gross. And I had to go to Denver for pride. And I'm sweating just sitting here and can't sleep.

Sorry it's your blog I'll shut up now

Sue said...

Dave, your reaction to Madrid was lots like my husband's!!! He was awed by it all and compared to a garden filled with sprites and fairies such has in Bosch's painting! [Which we did see in the Prado!!!] But we weren't there for Pride, we just went out in the evenings and it was the vast difference to where we live that made him comment that way. I am so glad that you had a good time and can't wait to read your report. But get your rest now sweetie pie!

Francisco, Were you working out at the gym? It was very busy. I think thats the day i wore my golds gym shirt. And yes I am "high" as I am assuming by "high" you mean TALL :)

Francisco said...

Tall in stature wanted to say xD I do not speak English very well
I do not work in a gym, but would not be bad
