Laba diena! Es esmu Vladimirs Dzintra, Latvijas vissvarīgākais foto blogeris un dīdžejs lielas radio parādīt, MaximumFunky bailīgs pie Baltijas jūras vasaras laikā. Lūdzu zvanīt man Vlads.

Es esmu svinēt valsts svētkus Latvijā, un ieradās Amerikas Captiol, Washington, DC. Man bija laba izdevība apmeklēt lielāko regulāru notikumu sestdienas naktī, ka es lasīt par in Washington Post. Tas bija vārds Slideluck Potshow, un es neatceros redzēt tādas lietas Rīgā jebkad agrāk. Zem viena jumta, mēs ēdam miežu un baudīt funny attēlu šovu.

Mums bija vētrains, vējainā naktī, kad es apmeklēju amerikāņu Haunted House Pennsylvania Avenue, netālu kur Premier sēž. Iekšā bija daudz skaistas amerikāņu meitenes, daudz delcious pārtika izgatavoti no rokām un atsvaidzinošu dzērienu no šīs Brooklyn Brewery. Es dzirdēju par šo alus darītavu agrāk, jo mans poļu brālēns, Krzysztof, dzīvo tur blakus. Viņš saka rajons kļūst pilns Giggletossers.

Slaidrādi bija 26 mākslinieki no District of Columbia jomā. Mums bija tik smieklīgi attēli no Amerikas prezidenta kampaņas TJ Kirkpatrick, kas ir iepazinies attēlus vīriešu ar spēcīgu bārdu Christopher McCool un jauki bildes no Svētās zemes, ko Daria Lombroso un interesantas bildes no maza ciema Iowa pa Brendan Hoffman, trakas bildes kā sapnis man bija, kad es apmeklēju īpašas sēņu medniekiem pa Russ McIntosh, un jautri attēlus vīriešu ģērbšanās kā sieviete Eli Meir Kaplan.

Pēc izrādes, es devos uz tuvējo dzeramā namā, 18 grozījumu, un patika vairāk laika ar saviem jaunajiem draugiem. Pēc pāris pāris glāzēm kartupeļu šņabi, man bija konkurss, lai redzētu, kurš bija spēcīgākais kājas ar vienu Āzijas vīrieti un vienu vīrietis ar bārdu. Jums nav nepieciešams laiks, lai man jautā, kas bija visspēcīgākā kāju!

Es satiku jaukus cilvēkus, ļoti patika mans laiks Hill Center, un ceram redzēt citu izklaidi, piemēram, šo – varbūt, kad es atkal apmeklēt laikā novembrī Fotoweek DC. Nākamreiz, es lai mani visvairāk atbilst pelēkie zirņi vai šķiņķi!

You don’t speak Latvian?!  We try Google Translation:

Good day! I am Vladimir Dzintra, Latvia’s most important photo blogger and DJ of major radio show, MaximumFunky on the Baltic Sea during summer time. Please call me Vlad.

I am celebrating National Holidays in Latvia, and came to visit America’s Captiol, Washington, DC. I had the good occasion to attend a most unique event on Saturday night, that I read about in Washington Post.  It was name Slideluck Potshow, and I don’t remember seeing such a thing in Riga ever before.  Under same roof, we eat barley and enjoy funny picture show.

We had stormy, windy night when I visited American haunted house on Pennsylvania Avenue, near where the Premier sits.  Inside was many beautiful American girls, many delicious foods made from hand and refreshing beverage from this Brooklyn Brewery.  I heard about such brewery before because my Polish cousin, Krzysztof, is living near there.  He says neighborhood is becoming full of Giggletossers.

In slideshow there was 26 artists from District of Columbia area.  We had so funny pictures from American presidential campaign by TJ Kirkpatrick, familiar pictures of men with strong beard by Christopher McCool,  lovely pictures from Holy Land by Daria Lombroso, interesting pictures from small village in Iowa by Brendan Hoffman, crazy pictures like a dream I had when I visited special mushroom hunters by Russ McIntosh, and fun pictures of men dressing like a woman by Eli Meir Kaplan.

After show, I went to nearby drinking house, the 18th Amendment, and enjoyed more time with my new friends.  After a couple few glasses of potato vodka, I had a contest to see who had strongest legs with one Asian man and one man with beard.  You don’t have to take time to ask me who had strongest leg!

I met nice people, enjoyed very much my time at Hill Center, and hope to see another entertainment such as this – perhaps when I again visit during Fotoweek DC in November.  Next time, I bring my most satisfying grey peas and ham!

  • Jen Plaskowitz

    Definitely sorry to have missed the strongest leg contest….

  • Casey Kelbaugh

    It was an epic display of the male calf.

  • Stanley

    it was a maximum funky evening!

  • Alex Amerman

    As one of two favorites in the strongest leg contest, I have to admit I was pretty surprised when that little Latvian slit his pants open.

  • Navy

    The naval hospital afforded us shelter from the storm outside and we were thankful not to be swept into DC’s “undercurrents”. Check out the Slideshows on Slideluckpotshow.com to see what I mean.
