frandroid: camilo cienfuegos in a broad-rimmed hat (camilo)
Backed by a blazing 70-piece Afrobeat orchestra, Fela rails against the Nigerian military construct as proud puppets of bureaucratic Gepettos: “Zombie won't go unless you tell him to go/Zombie won't stop unless you tell him to stop.” His words were enough to “inspire” more than a thousand army thugs to break into his home (an independent state), throw his mother out of a window (she died), and burn the entire neighborhood to the ground. To get back at them he became even louder about his politics, married 27 women on the one-year anniversary of the raid, and ran for president.

[livejournal.com profile] brownfist posts tons of information about the Nepali Maoist insurgency, for those interested. Add him up. It's pretty interesting even if I don't align exceedingly with it.

Mount Everest on Bloor at Spadina-ish makes amazing Nepali (and Indian) food. I don't know about the "authenticity", whatever that is, but it's very very tasty, which is what matters in the end. Yum. The Aloo, Tama and Bodi (potato, bamboo shoots and ginger, not necessarily in that order) dish is very tasty.

Hamas Calls For 'Giant Summit' With All Israelis

RAMALLAH, WEST BANK—After his militant Islamic party took the majority in Palestine's recent elections, Ismail Haniyeh called for a "giant summit with all living Israelis" Monday, rekindling international hopes for peace in the war-torn region.

Haniyeh characterized the one-day summit as "the final solution to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute," and invited every Jewish citizen of the world to attend. Haniyeh said he expects more than 5 million participants from Israel alone.

I had thought about this in the past, but I'll quote [livejournal.com profile] ginmar here:
You'll know we've gotten to be a decent nation or world, when pairs don't have to be heterosexual. I mean, why do they call it pairs when they ought to call it "Heteropairs" anyway?
