Vizard of the Vestside

by Niki Tehranchi

I came across the blog "Vizard of the Vestside" quite by chance (okay quite by surfing aimlessly on the Net instead of doing the research I was supposed to do!).  It is written by a thirty something Iranian-American based, where else, in Vestvood (or maybe in the general area).  I read a few entries and I found his writings quite funny and totally relatable, at least for me, another thirty something living in Hell-Ay.  Posting the site for any of you who may like to check it out:

Inspired by Marjaneh and the Seven Up series from Director Michael Apted, chronicling the evolution of several individuals from their childhood in the 1960s to the present time, by coming back every 7 years to film them and their lives.

Thanks Niki, honeybuns.

'Am giggling at the "negah puleaze" video. 

Would have been funny to have done a 7Up on Tehrangeles....
