Oooh, so we do have a rich.. spiritual life both, ey? ;-)

As about playing cards, yessss! It can get so funny but also full of tension (what does he have? ;-)) especially in such bars and accompagnied with some good bottle and all appropriate unhealthy junk food. Great! I remember the nights with friends back in germany when I was studying!

Oh, and what jumps into my mind too? Yes, of course it's "The ace of spades" by Motorhead.

Cheers, and... see you!


The Ace Of Spades

If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man
You win some, lose some, it's all the same to me
The pleasure is to play, it makes no difference what you say
I don't share your greed, the only card I need is
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil,
Going with the flow, it's all a game to me,
Seven or Eleven, snake eyes watching you,
Double up or quit, double stake or split,
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

You know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby,
I don't wanna live for ever,
And don't forget the joker!

Pushing up the ante, I know you've got to see me,
Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it's gonna be,
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

Hey, wanted to ask you something. Since we seem to have so many tastes in common, do you also love playing cards ? Especially contract bridge and poker ?


Avi  Avi     {K:70138} 1/5/2008
You GOT the spirit Nick... you got it till the last drop !!! :) :)


Nick Karagiaouroglou Nick Karagiaouroglou   {K:127263} 1/5/2008
Oh no! Anything else but that, Avi!

And I can only hope that you powerfully contributed to the necessary changes in those pubs, ey?

But still, what else they serve I am eager to know! And why those old lines by Rory jump into my mind:

Had me a whiskey, and I chased it,
Got me some trouble, gonna face it,
But if I had a trump card, I would place it,
That's for sure....yeah....

All that exactly in such a kind of bar, where the bottle label doesn't cound nearly as much as the being together.

Cheers again to you, Avi!



Avi  Avi     {K:70138} 1/3/2008
Yeah Nick.. the ONLY bad thing about local pubs is that they don't serve single malts !!! :)


Nick Karagiaouroglou Nick Karagiaouroglou   {K:127263} 1/3/2008
It has so much of an abstraction again, Avi, as it lets me think about the pub and the atmosphere, but still it remains a rather "real" place again! The down to earth attitudes are quite visible through the coloring and details that more or less say "you won't find any unnecessary luxury here.". And so it conveys a place that doesn't live from astronomical prizes for the drinks - quite the opposite from what happens in cities like Zurich.

But again on the image - I find the rather dark appearance and the color combination very nice to look at. And your composition opens the possibility for some postcards of that pub, used as advertisment.

Ahhhh... the local pub. Here we have a saying, "You can drink and drink and drink and drink but when you "break the seal" (go to the bathroom for the first time) it seems you have to go every five minutes after that." Almost brings back memories I can almost recall....
