Khomeini is Rolling over in his grave, keep him Rolling!!!!!!!!

Women allowed to Sing!

Next They will be allowed to dance.

Hopefuly the Forceful use of Hejabs will come off too.

This is great news, looks lke the mullahs vision for a purely Islamic way of life is unenforceable.  Good.


To be fair

Sorry for the previous base comment, clearly I am a man in a Islamic man's world. But I was also raised by a Lutheran mom, so here's my penance for the previous post. (I doubt it will even out the absolution though.)

In fact this Te Deum portion of the Gloria, is a traditional Catholic praise that is sung after a particular blessing, or event such as the election of a Pope and so on.

So it is befitting of a religious dominated society like Iran, to choose this piece to perform.

But it is hardcore Catholic. Most of Vivaldi is.

Surprising to see something so obviously Catholic being sung in Iran, but not surprising really, the main opening refrain in Latin means, "Thee, O God, we praise".


Sorry, the Hejabs aren't working

I'm sorry but as much of gentleman as I can stand to be, as a technical moslem, I have to say that all the women look utterly hot! Smoking actually! Especially the one in the center that the horny camerman keeps zooming in on.

And according to Islam, technically, legally, and constitutionally, that's not our fault. These ladies put the Ah! in Allah!

Classical Music


It is wonderful to see Iranian concert orchestra playing classical music.  If Islamic Republic loosen up its grip just a little bit, all screws begin to come loose.
