i'd like to start out by thanking those people who comment on this blog. . .i know i don't always respond. . .but it's nice to know people like damion, josh, beth, my aunts, my grandmother, ex-co-workers, etc. . .read/watch/listen all content i keep pooping onto the web. . .

i buzzed my hair. it was too long.

the last goodhands team recording session is posted at http://goodhandsteam.com/dancecomp.html (i played in that session)

aljazeera (the tv network spinned as evil in the us) is airing a tv show called "couscous and cola". near as i can tell it's about muslim teens in the west. . .(english sub-titles). . .they are in amsterdam now. . .trying to get to the us. . .it's like mtv's real world only they are dealing with issues like western perception of islam and mid-east politics instead of which roommate slept with who. . .i guess the most shocking statement in the show was when one of the kids kicked a soccer ball over the fence into the yard of the us embassy. . .and one of the other kids said jokingly. . ."watch out, bush might be in there. . .the biggest terrorist of them all. . ."

i saw a commercial by dove about ideals of beauty (perhaps this commercial is in the us too. . .i don't know). . .checkout http://campaignforrealbeauty.ae. . .the commerical is in fast stop annimation. . .it's everything that happens to a model's picture from the time she sits down to be shot to the billboard. . .including make-up too photoshop. . .now i'm not so naive that i don't think this is in the school of phillip-morris having a website to help people quit smoking. . .but it's cool nevertheless. . .

i guess some british soilders were nabbed by iran today. . .i really hope there is a "diplomatic" end to this. the arab summit is taking place in riyadh this week. . .iran will be there, so will iraq. . .and all the other arab nations. . .i get the days off. . .they are closing some roads. i'm wondering if there will be some alliances outta this meeting. . .i'm wondering if the reigion will decided to take care of itself for the sake of itself. . .this will be telling. . .the silence after the summit could be telling. . .

thats al-jazeera's english page. less than a year old i think. i read it a lot. people in america do not realize that al-jazeera is ALSO hated by a lot of the middle eastern world - for being too 'pro-western.' which is ironic.

I started reading your recent posts and decided that it was worth company time to read all of them since you left.
I'm proud of you for going, I couldn't have been an easy choice considering your family and fiance and everything you've ever known are all back here. I just hope you enjoy your time and stay safe (that doesn't seem to be a problem so far!).
