“Because we refuse to marginalize women in society in all roles that comply with sharia, we have decided, after deliberation with our senior ulama (clerics) and others… to involve women in the Shura Council as members, starting from the next term,” he said in a speech delivered to the advisory body.
“Women will be able to run as candidates in the municipal election and will even have a right to vote.”
This site is my fucking jam right now. I am absolutely loving the idea and execution. Essentially, you can either “check” your own baggage, or “carry” someone else’s. To “check” it, you anonymously write your problems and wait for a response, which comes in the form of a song and a small (optional) message. Or to carry it, you read someone’s problem, and choose a song you want to send them, along with some words of wisdom/positivity. I’ve just sent like 5 of them. I am LOVING this. I checked something as well, and can’t wait to see if I get a response. :)
Why is this so beautiful? ;_;
Ok this websites whole concept is really amazing (and hopefully it hasn’t been abused too much). I gave a bunch of people songs and encouragement (they can only get one song, so choose wisely!) and debated wether or not to check some baggage myself, but I’m really glad I did!
I put a little blurb up, and someone sent me the perfect song and it was such a “holy shit the internet can be so cool sometimes” moment. Whoever you are, anonymous songster, thank you!
I have to unpack all of those cute tank tops and shorts and sandals that I packed last night. *sigh* We just might get stuck in the hotel all Sunday. Damn.
I’m flying all the way from California to New York City tomorrow. And I had been waiting months for the Afro Punk Fest. If this hurricane makes me miss my group, I’m gonna… um, find a bowl… and I’m … gonna… You know!!
I love this song. It’s another Mariah song from her early career (Music Box). I believe she produced this with C+C Music Factory.
Right of the bat, I noticed the guitar sample from Slave’s “Just A Touch Of Love,” but I can’t put my finger on all its influences (the song feels quite mature. I bet there are other references I’m missing).
This sing wants so desperately to be remixed with “End of the Road” and “You Mean the World to Me” on the bridge (I also hear some “Ill Make Love to You” in there too). Can’t decide if the songs’ commonalities are due to Babyface’s laziness or genius.
Oh! I gotta post that parody song Chris Rock did for one of his comedy albums. That’ll be tomorrow.
I love how synths in 80’s/90’s music don’t actually sound like real instruments. Like what the hell is the synth in this song? Sounds like some sweet child’s toy being usurped for mother’s joy. (Wow, that was way more nasty than my intent.)
