An arabic rap band that covers old arabic poems? heck yes!
Here is one from Nizar Qabbani, a poem that is known for his feminist view. In this poem however, he critisizes the stangnant arabic world.
I went through something similar with electro-swing and basically never listen to it anymore.
But, sometimes, I check out some of the lesser known artists to see what they produced. Like Odjbox for example
He for example had a record a few years ago with instrumental bits. I guess he is evolving, ,changing?
I liked this one from him
Maybe demiurrrge will like it
Amazing video. I always read that it is being used in the guts of some pipelines I am using but I never really understood why. This makes much more sense now! Thank you :)
If you ask me, this is the solution that I want the most.
If you ask everybody else, this is the worst solution.
The problem with this solution is that it requires both sides to shed their narrativs COMPLETELY.
No jewish state (no jewish majority), no return of refugees etc.
It is a very idealistic solution. But not possible, I think.
Or what makes you think it is?
I have no clue what this plan looks like. But I expect it not to be anything towards a federation or a one-state solution.
Been thinking about the Federation Plan today and I am liking it.
All of this combined with the first rocket attack from the Gaza strip for a long time. This time, it hit a small kibbutz just 1km away from my (arabic) home town north of tel aviv.
Hamas is saynig that they did not do the attack. But now we are heading towards another full blown attack on Gaza, and it just started.
Hey! Sadly, I am not... But you you want some suggestions on stuff to do, beyond the Taglit propaganda tour, let me know :)
Apart from that, I have a lot of friends in Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Jerusalem if you are up for party or meeting some burners!
Damn those poppy catchy beats in the norwegian song
I haven't followed the Israeli selection that well but one of my favorite artists is competing and from what I heard she is rocking it.
Her version of Karma Police is probably the best I have heard :D (filmed in old Jaffa)
After watching the Palestine Unerground Boiler Rool Documentary I was shocked the I only knew the israeli/palestinian part of the story (and music). I went deep into the featured artists from Ramallah and found some interesting and lovely gems!
This one is by Makimakkuk and its beautiful
There are also some interesting hip hop artists and beat makers. This guy, Al Nather, did a great job with this beat!
This is probably the most odd I ever felt during christmas. I am, mentally and emotionally, in a different place than I usually am during this time of the year.
I am visiting my family in Israel over the holidays. I was looking forward to this break for a long time but I seem to get less rest and more baggage to deal with. After all what happened this year, the pregnancy (and abortion), the breakup, starting therapy, the next heartbreak... I feel more lonely and vulnerable than I ever did, constantly on watch for a partner to go through this with, fully knowing that no band-aid will heal my wound. Knowing that I need to be fully content with myself, and not be reliant on someone else. It is hard though and I have no clue how I can stop myself from going into that cycle of thoughts.
I have about 10 months to finish my experiments for my thesis and then another 3-4 to write and hand it in. It feels weird that in about 1.5 years, my PhD will be over and my 12 years of being a student, officially over. What comes next? I wanted to travel a bit. Visit Japan, Argentina, and maybe get to Burning Man.
That reminds me, what are your "must do" things in the states? I love climbing, hicking, and good dance parties.
With all honesty, I am going to meet the girl I fell for a few months ago tomorrow morning and my brain is freaking out. I am scared of the feelings. Scared of the next reminder that, this relationship too, has no future and I will be trucking alone again.
