ticMovie Night: Ticket to a fun night

ticMovie Night Ticket to Paradisereview by Mala Raman

15 Oct 2022. After quite the hype of the “dream-team” coming back to the theaters, I was curious to see the newest RomCom at the latest tic Friday night movie. An equally curious small group met in the lobby of Pathé to check out the night’s move. We enjoyed chatting a bit and getting acquainted/reacquainted before going into the film.

The Movie

With the no-fail pair of Julie Roberts and George Clooney, our expectations were high…and we were not disappointed! The interplay of sharp barbs and natural chemistry between the 2 co-stars made for seamless delivery of some great one-liners while paving the way for a deeper story line of love, loss, forgiveness and new beginnings.

Overall it was a light-hearted, fun film that left us with a feel-good optimistic ending and a nice way to end the night.

x–x–x–x–x

13 Apr 2019. by Essi Koskela. 

Right before noon on Saturday we gathered near the Spoorzone in Tilburg in the hip-looking studio Sooss, which many of us had been hoping to get a reason for to visit. Amazingly, everybody was on time, and after some review of yoga histories, we moved to the cozy classroom on the second floor, just big enough to host the eight of us. (more…)

TIC Jazz Nightreview by Dietrich Haas

05 Oct 2022. Jazz might not be everybody’s favourite – and yes, it is definitely not mainstream – but it is heaps of fun and definitely once in your life a must-try if you have not visited a concert, yet.

The Orchestra

TIC gave everybody a chance to broaden their musical horizons by organizing a Jazz night at Tilburg’s Paradox with Het Brabantse Jazz Orchestra. This is a proper bigband with almost 20 years stage experience, who performed all the pieces from their latest recording. (more…)

Book Discussion Review: The Liar’s Dictionary

TIC Book Discussion: The Liar's Dictionaryreview by Donna Brown

13 Sept 2022. We met to discuss the book, The Liar’s Dictionary, by Eley Williams, a young British professor and writer who grew up in a family immersed in words and dictionaries.

While not everyone enjoyed the book as a whole, it was the consensus that dictionaries must be fluid in nature, as words change in meaning over time. Also, imbedded in the story was the existence of mountweasels, or false words, as well as many metaphors, hyperboles, puns, turns of phrase.  This made for a clever and fun read.

The Book

Our book took place over a century in the fictitious Swansby’s Encycolpedic Dictionary of Words.  The  thread in the story in the late nineteenth century was told through the eyes of Mr. Winceworth, a man who (more…)

So, holidays this year were over on September 10, when everybody was invited to the Dadawan restaurant – “Everybody” then meant about 50 members, including the potential ones.

Petanque showdown!

Review by Mala Raman

26 Feb 2022. Check out our picture gallery from the event!

We met for an indoor petanque tournament at Boules Bites Bar (behind the Pieter Vreedeplein) where we were safely tucked away from the start of Carnaval festivities. We still had the carnaval spirit with several members coming dressed for the occasion.

Petanque is a summertime classic outdoor game, also known as jeu de boules. It’s a simple game where you get three chances to throw a weighted ball as big as your palm as close to the “but” (a small-ish plastic ball) as possible — or at least closer than your opponents! 

TIC members battled against each other in an intense series of ball throwing. The games moved along at a quick pace with groups of 4 or 5 taking turns at throwing their balls with sporty elegance and accuracy. At some point, competition devolved into chatting and drinking, but to be sure, a good time was had by all!
