George Clooney: Arrested for Sticking it to "The Sudan."



One of the biggest names in Hollywood was locked up and cuffed away from the Embassy of the Sudan. On the previous friday (March 16th 2012), George Clooney was arrested for protesting against the regime of Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, which is currently causing more destruction in one of the world's most chaotic nations.

Clooney took to the grounds to protest the blocking of food aid by al-Bashir to the southern regions of Sudan, including the Blue Nile. As of late, George Clooney has been quite the African enthusiast. In the previous weeks he appeared in the docu short, "Kony2012" calling for more focus and exposure on modern war criminals.

If Clooney was trying to draw attention to this latest crisis in Sudan, he has succeeded. One thing is still certain, Sudan's regime is brutal and not fading any time soon. Omar al-Bashir has even been labeled as "The Hitler of Africa" for his orchestration of the genocide in Darfur.

The USA state department has only listed four state sponsors of terrorism, and of course, one of them is the Sudan. If Sudan wants to stand a chance at having a future, this dissertation-long list of war crimes and human rights violations needs to end. The removal of their current Hitler-type leader might serve as a starting point.

Sudan has two official languages, English and Arabic, yet Omar al-Bashir can't speak English to save his life. I'd like to see George Clooney debate al-Bashir. He would castrate him.

Is Peace in Darfur, the Blue Nile, and all of the Sudans possible?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
