Samer,

I’m convinced I know you.

The curiosity is killing me.

Thanks Gabe, and I’m very glad to be of assistance. One of my goals here, especially on the weekends, is to be as subversively conceited, obnoxious and sophomoric as these guys:

So file this under “interesting”:

My local contemporary art museum, which I defer to for all matters art, design, culture and cool, is plodding along with its performing arts season that starts every year in the fall, and later this month, they’re hosting a Syrian singer from Ras Al Ayn in Al Hasaka for an evening performance.

His name is Omar Souleyman and I was intrigued enough to look up some of his music videos on YouTube. I quickly decided “Hell, no!” on whether I would attend. After all, it wasn’t that long ago when I got snookered into sitting through a performance of Lebanese playwright/actor Rabih Mroue’s “Looking for a Missing Employee” which, with all due respect, was a frickin’ disaster!

Anyway, in the process of doing my diligence, I came across this fantastically fun review of Omar Souleyman’s music, which just happened to be published in late 2010/very early 2011, right before the onset of the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East. It’s not perfect, mind you. It has its share of spelling errors throughout and I have no idea what the “AoE tache” referred to in the opening sentence is, but still, check it out for a laugh:

Palestine is looking for Foreign Investment. Give Generously.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The new Palestinian unity government toured Gaza and held a Cabinet meeting there for the first time Thursday, aiming to assure donor countries that absolute Hamas control has ended and that it can lead the rebuilding of the war-battered territory.

Still, the situation remains volatile. Hamas refuses to disband its security forces, even though it promises to support the new government of independent experts.

Those security forces were in full view Thursday as the ministers inspected neighborhoods that were badly damaged in this summer’s 50-day war between Israel and Hamas.
