Zidane in Jome' Prayer ...!

read the comments, AYYOHANAS !!!
don't miss the opportunity to see a mirror in front of you :) ... as a nation, i mean ;)

but seriously, comments on the original post ( http://www.cheraghha.blogfa.com/post-223.aspx )
are entertaining, and sometimes the hostility and hatred is amazing, from all sides ...

I am being convinced that in fact Iran's government are among the best of us :)
well, maybe not best, but average iranian are not better than government either :(
[I have said this so many times that I am getting nausea from writing it , do you have suggestions?]

BTW, thanks for your kind responses to my "COOL TEST", both in the group and on my weblog,
I got absolutely "zero" response, which is actually a very good result (for me, it proves my points)

I just saw his new post:

but I still think it is fake

Interesting (Farsi) post:

you may find this post interesting:
http://www.masihm.com/Post-302.ASPX 

2013-04-25: Most of the links to Farsi blogs, specially the old links, do not work anymore. I wish I had provided a little more information about what was interesting, and maybe had a quote from it, but back then I was always in hurry. I was always behind the schedule, not finishing my papers on time, under stress. Well maybe not the first couple of years of working at GSU (2006--2008), because during that period I was successfully publishing my thesis' chapters. But later on the pressure increased steadily.
Anyway, I am going to keep such posts intact, as a indirect sign of how things were back then.

Reza's are genious

See "Reza"s comment (5th) here, boy he is genious:

Article on SEPAH

This provides some historic facts(?) on "SEPAH" and its changes, etc. I am forwarding it
more for its historic value (assuming its accuracy?!), although, I have found politics
basically a waste of time and at best only something that makes us feel better (responsible
for our country?) when in fact it does not lead to ANY significant change/benefit ...

well, here is the link:

All Alone:

All alone...

The beat's got soul

Deuteronomy

Snatch a piece of my wondering

This did fall like under in

Skid em with two lights

Skid em with boot light

Flamers too light

Where's the waitress

Can't take this really can't finish this

These airs and all these graces

It's my mistake I'll make it

J'd up to the boom now make it

Bounce wiggle bounce wiggle shaking all them things out

Chemical cutthroats 'bout to blow the brain out

Cut to the brain

This ain't no game

I'll show no shame

I'll birth this bane

I'll twist the game

I'll twist the game

I'll push this plane

It's plain as day

Known to what these sayers say

Known to what these doers do

It's you and who and you know where

We's about to take it there

We's about to make it clear

We're happy on we lonesome

The lone drum the beat hot

From start to finish

Ten spoons of spinach

The soul and the spillage

The cup that runneth over

We turn up the 'oh God'


All alone...

Close your eyes and see

When there ain't no light

All you'll ever be

Come and save the night

Coz I don't leave

When the morning comes it doesn't

Seem to say an awful lot to me...


All alone...

A COOL TEST:

INTRODUCTION:

You should now about the current situation between Israel and Lebanon and its potential threat to Iran.
And most Iranians have some position on this, see for example:

http://pass-ato.blogspot.com/2006/07/israel-sounds-serious-this-time.html

http://manib.blogfa.com/post-65.aspx

TEST:

Please answer the following (email to the group, or leave a comment)

What can we (Iranians educated people * intellectuals?) do in this situation?

REQUIREMENT:

You need to spend at least 15 minutes thinking about your answer.

PENALTY:

If your answer sounds like you have not spent "15" minutes at least, I will publicly humiliate you!

Of course, you have the option not to answer!

I will try to write something myself, and also analyze the results at the end.

Have fun :)

surprisingly good movie

Check out this movie: Beautifull Girls

Link: http://allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=1:135850~T1

Not that it is an excellent movie, but has surprisingly good something

Coffee

This week marks a break-through in my coffee-making techniques, many congratulations :) I am thinking about patenting the idea, but first I need to run it by some experts.

I know, I know, it is so sad and self-centered, but hey, what can I do?

CD recommendation:

If you have time, check this (classical) CD:

Columbia Symphony Orchestra, Glenn Gould, Vladimir Golschmann\Bach - Keyboard Concertos

Links:

http://music.barnesandnoble.com/search/product.asp?z=y&EAN=696998776128&ITM=10

http://www.glenngould.com/gg/52591.html

It is a true masterpiece, beyond whatever words can describe!

The only problem is that you should listen to it around 100 times to truly appreciate it (at least
that is what i have done, well, in fact i started appreciating it after the 10-20 times or so :)

NABAVI - MOHAJERANI


What do you think about this:

Writing Blog:


Why people who want to discontinue writing, announce it in their weblogs?
(Me the first example!) and then usually return back to writing after a short
pause. (Again, HAGHIR among them)

I think bloggers have a phobia of being forgotten, this is the force behind them
writing, and it becomes really unbearable in certain times ...

What do you think?

Confession & Apology -- or --- Re: civilized discussion?!

Today I spent a couple of hours of my valuable time (yes, our time is valuable!) looking at some Iranian weblogs and my previous email was the result of my first shock. However, this was only the begining ...

I have a few more links, and I do not really know if they are worth anything, and actually I first want to sincerely apologize for bringing the previous and these links to your attention. I should probably spend my time on my work, or at least with my family, doing something good. But I am still feeling nausea from reading these weblogs.

Reading these weblogs, I feel much better about our group/dsicussions :) At least, it seems a much more civilized place. Anyway, here are some more links:

http://nanazola2.blogspot.com/2006/07/blog-post_115194311031893788.html [Titel of the weblog: Freedom for All, and then check out this post. Other posts are similar!]

http://z8un.com/cgi-bin/mt/mt-comments.cgi?entry_id=1835#1221164935 [EFSHAGARI ... ]

How much time these people are spending on this? There are 150 comments on a post, only one post!
Maybe I am just too depressed because I have wasted so much time, well ....

civilized discussion?!

I have a mixed feeling about even mentioning this
weblog, but what the hell! Just, please be advised that
the contents are very explicit and there is/was a huge
discussion going around this:


http://noqte.com/blogs/blog.php?code=201


I feel discussions around "homosexuality" are a
short-cut to deep inside Iran soceity ... but as
usual I can be completely wrong

Nice email:

Hello S...!


How are you? I am doing fine. I have hard weeks now in university and working hard but soon it is over and I have vacation. You probably heard already that I am flying to Chicago at the 27th of July and staying until the 20th of August. I wanted to come to visit you guys and explore a new city A..... I talked with Sh.... and A.... about it and they told me that you moved to a new house. So congratulations!


I don`t know if it is ok for you that I am willing to come? I actually wanted to come with a girlfriend of mine M.... (the daughter of A...`s friend). She is doing the aupair program in Chicago right now. She just told me that she could get off work from the 28th of July until the 3rd of August and I thought I `ll ask you if we can come at this time!? Let me know if it is comfortable for you or not.


I am sure that you have to work at that time but I don`t need guidance the whole time. I`ll explore the city by myself or with you guys if you have the time for it!
I am already excited. I also heard that your parents want to come from Iran. That´s cool. Hope it will work with the visa!


Hope to hear from you soon, kisses G...
