Arabic language record on the Israeli pop charts is great! But that is international news. NY1 can be receptive but come on… It’s good. You don’t like Lewis Dodley or Amanda Farinacci? I don’t know…

@Sugarwolf You have my sympathy. Although supposedly Croydon is sort of trying to be hip now, with the opening of a street-food market thing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/9/16 3:37pm Cecile:

I'm pretty sure A-ma are Yemenite Jews.That might have helped their cross-over potential. And the cultures aren't THAT different. That's part of the reason why the Middle East situation is so sad.

If you went to the Electric Fetus in Mpls, you might be pleased.

It's bumming me out that I thought the beginning of "Valerie" was "You Can't Hurry Love." But the Phil Collins version. I also thought Amy Winehouse was Noisettes.

@northguineahills: Yup. I used to live there until recently. Now I’m in Bay Ridge where there are more Middle Eastern shops and one around the corner from me that has a humble array of CDs.

it was mostly good, but had some enormously crappy moments.
  Fri. 9/9/16 3:45pm modchick65:

Towards Sheila's point, I feel like there are bunch of things that should exist in NYC but don't. Like proper 60s bars or tiki bars. I have this dream bar in mind that doesn't seem to exist.

@Cecile, the same pretty much. Daughters home for the summer, so that was fun. But always working, so that sucked. Just got back from Oregon, followed by jury duty. From which I was booted off the panel.

If I had attempted to get a pic of my daughter's first day of school there would no doubt have been an obscene gesture involved. Not that that would have stopped me from posting it, but in the end I just got lazy and figured who gives a crap anyway.

Yes, nice cover. Everything sounds a little "drier" or "colder" in Svedka, though. Which is cool for this song
