Metal Documentary and more blogs

Check the sidebar for this three-shot of blog additions, arranged by order of discovery:

1. Sheko Mako: The recent trend of Iraqi blogs tend be more social than political, this pleasant blog discusses everything from rock music to Iraqi social glimpses, recent posts include attending a Pink Floyd concert, and an Arabic-language post about the tribulations of a small child.
2. Ashoury: This one is a little different and it's a shame that it is not in English. It is written from a French by a Christian Assyrian and it focuses on the p
3. VBS Documentary: A very cool documentary about the only Iraqi heavy metal band's Accrasscida's relative ups and downs, three parts, the first about the show's producers travels into Iraq and their sights and seeings of the country, the second is about the history of the band in Iraq, and the final about their reunion in Syria and the recording of a demo...the good thing is that it is a VLOG, Hometown Baghdad eat yer heart out! :)

Mike here from Hometown Baghdad. I love the Vice Doc! They do great stuff and Accrisscida rules. We at Chat the Planet actually filmed them once a few years ago. Vice also did another doc series on them. It's called Black Scorpion of Baghdad. Check it out: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ya7JvSyza8w

Take the Pledge

All Presidential Candidates should make pledges like those below. If they refuse, then you should refuse to vote for them.

1. No More Oil Wars.

2. Work for independence from foreign oil on day one.

3. No more wars for corporate profit.

4. No more secret deals for $4 per gallon gas.

5. No more Chicken Hawks promoting wars of choice when they themselves avoided combat.

6. Make government green--if you can't make what you have the most control over green, I don't care about your plans to make the country green.

7. No more torture.

8. No more lying about torture.

9. No more re-defining torture.

10. No more drunken hunting.

11. No more secret deals with big corporations to divide up the spoils before the war even starts.

Kid,

Hey, whatever happened to Emigre?

I've noticed that you and anarki-13 have started to post entries again here. They're not totally lame, I guess (heh heh).

Are you guys going to keep blogging here?

By the way, your entries on al-Wardi have been great and I'll put a blog tomorrow probably with a summary and some thoughts on what you've been up to.

*high five blog-style ... SMAAAAACK!*

Oh yeah, I hope we can convince Shaqawa to nix the moderation. It completely ruins the rhythm of a comments page. But it's his call, in the end.

Kid,

On your advice, I just posted a blog entry at Iraqi Bloggers Central in which I ordered the Iraqi bloggers by month and year of their first post.

Let's Catch a Wave!

Any input would be appreciated.
