I vaguely remember the title of this film. It was “Looking for Mr.Goodbar”, starring Diane Keaton, if I recall correctly. Another neurotic, desperate, dependent, insecure, American “woman”, looking for love in all the wrong places... An emotional survival story. I've read a lot of your so-called emotional survival stories... Your dog dies, and you seek emotional survival by either sleeping with the first pretender or you are stuck in therapy for another 5 years. You lose your job and there you go, acting out, fucking around as if there is no tomorrow... You grandparent or parent dies and ditto, you recourse to the same... Your twin towers collapse and ditto again – you have been in therapy ever since. Your therapist is very understanding, after all you pay him/her over 200 dollars an hour and she/he pats you on the back and tells you it’s ok, it’s nothing but a phase of grief...don’t punish yourself, you are just trying to heal... How very touching indeed. You the puritanical, hall
As for the video, I am an ardent ballet enthusiast, but I wish Mr. al-Madfai hadn't used it for this song - rather jarring, in my opinion, although it seems a mix of ballet and belly dancing!
My wormest, sisterly greetings, Layla. Sisterly sounds better then just feminist, you know why.
Then there are those who are pissed as hell, and have nothing left to lose. Those are deadly, but how many become like that in the Middle East?
I don't think it is Elham Al-Madfai who made the video, more like a wannabe westerner, trying to combine ballet and earthly oriental dance.
Am glad you were able to identify with parts of the post.
Am glad you enjoyed the music, at least.
Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. Sisterly greetings to you too, and yes I sure do know the difference between the sisterly and feminist categories...
I agree with you, to some extent...And yes there are deadly ones in the Middle East, but maybe not the sort of deadly you are used to across the Atlantic.
