All this talk about raki makes me wish I had some.
Avatar 8:49pm

rakı has a special oil extraccted from anise (anason). the anise is added at the last distillation of the grape alcohol. for ouzo and other beverages, the extraxcts or oils added to the distilled alcohol, mean, they don't involve the distillation process. and anise has a very special flavour that you cannot use other aromas with it. anise is very very sharp.

There's a pretty good Greek takeaway place down the road from me. No liquor license, natch.

LC -my gf at the time was 1/2 greek and her mother made the best! this store had the 2nd best!
the turkish place where i live now had it (except of course they called it "spinach pie") and that was the 3rd best (which makes it excellent); but their mother died a few months ago. she made it and they (the twins who own the restaurant) said they've never found anything comparable so they just took it off the menu.
sad.

coelacanth, I looked up the place and marked it on my map. It's not too far from Digital Press in Springfield, so next time I go by DP I can swing around and hit the store afterwards! :)

infos: the lyrics of "makinalaşmak" is actually a poem of nazım hikmet. it is a poem under influence of mayakovski, a russian futurist poet.

LambdaC it's very close to springfield. if you're in the mood that day too...if you like indian food my very favorite indian restaurant is a few blocks down! (i hope!) "star of india". you could have lunch there and have spanikopita for dinner!

it is a perfect choice for barış manço i think. this version of the song is not so well-known in turkey. you are an expert gary.

name of this song is "haydar haydar". haydar is the name of an alevite legendary guy. the song is a "deyiş", a rekigious dance-song.

it is very hard to translate but a heartly word in turkish. sometime you must give compassion to the garip, he or she needs it, but cannot reach because it is "strange or poor" :)

müslüm gürses has a beautiful "covers" album named "aşk tesadüfleri sever". it has the covers of the songs like "mr tambourine man" or "temple of the king". the supervizor of the album is a gay turkish poet "muarthan mungan", and the turkish lyrics of the songs are poems of good turkish poets. the last note: müslüm gürses' regular followers are usually homophobic and sexist young turks, and they welcomed the album :)
