Hello everyone, my name is Bart Hendrikx. No, I don't have any blood relations with Jimi. Berlin is where I am now. In less than 3 decades of this inspired life of mine, I've uncovered a bit of Mother Earth, living in cities like Amsterdam, Maastricht, Antwerp, London, Antibes, NY, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Newport Beach and 5 years of Malibu, CA where I worked in Advertising, Music, Film and TV. I collect air miles as often as I redeem them.

“Protecting biodiversity in our ocean, I think, is the single most important thing we should be addressing.”
On April 4, 2014 Bill Maher had a special guest at his show —- WATCH HERE—— Namely Toronto native, environmental, activist and Captain Paul Franklin Watson. Normally Watson is on the front lines of the battle to conserve and protect marine ecosystems for wildlife. Watson and his Sea Shepherd Conservation Society have been doing it for nearly 40 years. Watson was an early and influential member of Greenpeace, crewed and skippered for it, and later was a board member. Watson argued for a strategy of direct action that conflicted with the Greenpeace interpretation of nonviolence, was ousted from the board in 1977, and subsequently left the organisation (wiki). That same year, Watson founded the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The group is the subject of the weekly American documentary-style reality television series called Whale Wars (6th season) by Animal Planet. Last Friday (October 15th) I personally visited (Instagram) the opening of the brand new Global Headquarters & Sea Shepherd Store (store), located at: Alexander Boersstraat 52 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Our team and myself also went for support and to launch a new project with the Sea Shepherd organisation. Go check out The Store and HQ. in Amsterdam, you even can go upstairs and ‘Ask Questions’ if you are interested in supporting the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. More information:Sea Shepherd, Parley for the oceans, g-star’s RAW for the Oceans and The Vortex Project.

"The sooner we admit our capacity for evil the less apt we are to destroy each other."
Have a look at this brilliantly made video compilation ——-WATCH HERE——- from Martin Kessler, this of Dutch Director Paul Verhoeven’s work while working in Hollywood. Verhoeven truly is an incredibly dynamic director, Paul Verhoeven’s films could be both satirical and sincere, violent and tender, often all at once. This is a tribute to Verhoeven’s Hollywood films, and I would like to make another using clips from his other films at some point. This compilation reminded me again on Michael Miner’s (screenwriter Robocop) and Ed Neumeier’s (screenwriter Robocop) quote from working with Verhoeven on the 1987 cult classic  RoboCop: ”A good director can adapt to any kind of genre, to any genre. That’s the key. If the guy’s got talent, he can do anything. And Paul can do anything. I often say that he is a visceralist, not a visualist. Kubrick’s a visualist, he’s very cold and concise, and he wants you to see it, and study. Paul wants you to be reacting like “Shit, the next one might hit me.” ——WATCH HERE—— for the inception and production of the 1987 classic Robocop. Watch the brilliant TV Commercials from Robocop ——HERE——. “Hollywood, please finance Paul’s new book an into a feature….——“Jesus of Nazareth” ——(AMAZON)——. I’d Buy That for a Dollar, Right? Watch Brian Lehrer’s interview about the book with Verhoeven ——HERE—- Photo Credit: Basic Instinct (1992) Directed by Paul Verhoeven, Cinematography Jan de Bont. Production Companies: Carolco Pictures, Canal+ (producer) (as Le Studio Canal+). Enjoy!
