Dating in the Islamic World

For all those of our readers who are Muslim and thinking about a girlfriend or boyfriend for your valentine........

I am now living in the Arab country of Algeria, and life in the Muslim world means one thing.
Privacy is hard to come by sometimes.

The other day I had journeyed into a small clearing in the local landfill to practice my French rapping skills, and a man suddenly popped out of a tiny crevasse. He introduced himself to me and asked my nation of origin.




Once he learned I was American he journeyed back into his little dirt hole and returned with his girlfriend whom he was having a picnic with at the time. (And no, that is not a metaphor for something else. It was a real picnic.)

I had discovered an Algerian make out hole.
The two people then invited me to join them on their picnic and they even gave me a chicken sandwich and a Gucci keychain as a souvenir. Since then, I have noticed pairs of two heading down this little path toward the clearing in the dump for some TLC and PG-13 behavior.

This is the path to the Make out Hole.


Here are some tips for dating in the Muslim world.

In Algeria, if you want a functional unmarried relationship, you have to go where there are no people i.e. the local dump or a bookshop.

If you live in Iraq……..you would have to hide from gunfire and shell fragments.

If you live in India……….meh there are a billion people there, no one will notice…so crowded it is private.

If you live in Iran…….glad I’m not you.

If you live in Turkey…..just become an internet stalker like everyone else.

If you live in Morocco……well, there are so many ho*s in leopard print, you really wouldn’t have to hide from anything. It’s practically la mode.

QATFYG:
Have you ever had to sneak around?
And what are your thoughts on leopard print?

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i
