ask me things   Sometimes the brain ain't the same unless it feels the dream melt the ice congeal the cream...

They ask me,“What makes her so beautiful?”
I say,“Her soul.”
They ask,“But what of her appearance?”
I say,“It is given value through her soul.”
They ask,“What of her mind?”
I say,“It is but a nomad guided by her soul.”
They ask,“And what of her faith?”
I say,“Ah, now that is the question. It is the water and the sun that nourishes her soul. It is the strength that flows truth to her ever-loving heart. It is the soul of her soul.”
They ask,“Then what matters to you most?”
I smile,“That her faith be her purpose, her constant epiphany, and the essence of her happiness.”

Sometimes when I go back to the motherland, my cousins tell me,
‘I wish I were you’,
My heart fills with sorrow,
Thinking,
If only they knew what it feels like to be stripped from your roots.

Yes, one might conclude, taking the aforementioned into consideration, the Western fascination with the music of 60s and 70s Iran and Turkey might be largely attributable to an obsession with an exotic other (in contrast with my longing for the gems of a bygone era); yes, many of the songs presented on these albums might have been better left unearthed, and yes, such albums are far from being classic compilations or representative of a ‘golden age’ of Iranian and Turkish music. Truth be told, when it comes to such collections, there’s quite a bit of digging to be done for the good stuff; but, as one will sure enough discover, those rare funky, fuzzed-out, and plain badass moments all but wiped out from the sonic records of history more often than not compensate for the effort. Seek, and ye shall find …

"He was one of the few people I was truly envious of. But he didn’t know how good he was and he was plagued with insecurities. He used to say he was jealous of me because music is more accessible and it reached more people. He loathed the idea that art was appreciated by an elite group. When I heard that Jean-Michel had died, I was not surprised. He was too fragile for this world."

Wounded women and children struggle in pain in a house in Yaka China village, Korengal Valley, Kunar Province, East Afghanistan on Oct. 20, 2007. They received several shrapnel wounds from a rocket as a U.S. airstrike targeted a suspected insurgent position in a nearby house the previous night. The air strike also killed five other civilians and injured at least seven villagers including children.
