Just this monday, Bahareh and i headed to The Kitchen (my first time) for a show/reading some of our friends helped curate/produce. I had no idea of the treat-basket i was about to indulge in.

[from their bio]
Chimurenga [loosely translated as "liberation struggle"] was founded and edited by DJ and writer Ntone Edjabe in 2002. It publishes tri-yearly print projects that interrogate the superficial and give voice to the renegade in a series of "thinking out loud" profiles, deconstructed and imagined interviews, surreal short stories, poetry, and other devices that challenge strict notions of fact and fiction.
6 contributors [ ranging from filmaker to researcher to artist ]of the magazine had readings, short films from African cinema, and oodles of interesting slides....
The panelists (not in seated order) were:
Olu Oguibe
Peter James Hudson
Tunde Giwa
Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts
Brent Hayes Edwards
Gabi Ngcobo
SO enlightening; i took oodles of notes and ive had 20 tabs in firefox i refuse to close.

Google, them.

Deliciouscratic? Hmm, bad title?

The VP debate was, unfortunately, not as unfortunate for Palin as most of us anticipated. No worries, she'll have plenty more chances.

Bahareh whipped up some more deliciousness for the screening at ours.
Rolan spent half the time text-debating with his Republican/Floridian friend. Guillo, on the other hand, spent his phone time most wisely.
