Master of it all. The dream itself. The highest anyone has ever reached. Far far beyond.
Dance music has never been so intelligent, so creative and so confident.
Basslines are deep with an extended range of speed. Samples are as psychedelic as they can be. Melodies can be stand out and leading but some make them minimalistic. The genre can support any party because it can carry different emotions. It is too close to progressive trance and house, actually many of the greatest progressive tracks are taken from psy works.
Psy artists are populated in mostly two specific regions of the world, one is Israel which is the source and the second place is the Scandinavian countries. Some of the main artists are: Astral Projection, MFG, Alien Project, Yahel, Talamasca, Cosma, Logic Bomb, Ticon, Son Kite, Psysex, Cosmosis, SUN Project, Shakta, Shpongle & ... .
I give you some very useful links about psyhedelic trance, you can click and know all you want: Psychedelic Mind Expander, Psychedelic Trance Goa Music Reviews & Israeli Trance.

Once in a while I come up with theories about myself & about the reasons why I do stuff.
A while ago I thought everything I do & every thought in my head is derived from a big laziness in my unconscious. But after I focused on my behavior I saw that in some occasions I act very active. It was the time I discovered another powerful inner force, wanting to be different

I ask forgiveness, from all of those who I thought were week.
But it doesn't make them right, it makes me stronger,
cause I'm not like them, I'm just in the same situation.
I should confess it's hard. It's a strong temptation, but I'll find a way, a clean way. I have to, I should not become what I have hated all my life and I can. Policy of truth is the only way out.

Some people use comment ereas for introducing their weblogs to others. They choose a famous weblog and put a comment there with sentences exactly like this, "come and see my weblog http://blah blah". Damn it man! this is somebody's comment area, you suppose to say your idea about the stuff he/she writes.

Paul Oakenfold is definitely the best progressive trance and house DJ in the world. He's been officially DJing over a decade. There's a spirit in his works, songs he choose, the way he mix them, the place he choose for each song shows a talent. He composed an album too, he also write some songs for Swordfish soundtrack (There's a big difference between a composer and a DJ, a composer writes the song and may play some instruments but a DJ put other people songs' into a mix CD, choosing the right songs and the way these tracks go through each other is what a DJ should be good at). He knows what people like, he defines how people should dance.

Suddenly the world stops, Sounds echo through my ears and fade away, I'm fixed in my place and I don't move, I stare at something but I do not see what's in front of me, I don't have any idea what's going on around me because I'm not here.
It's Gone now. It was just a flashback, one of the greatest feelings in the world.

There are two kinds of addiction, mental & physical. Some stuff cause both kinds of addiction, like morphine which is in opium & heroin and amphetamines like ecstasy & Ice (metaphetamine). Some stuff cause only mental addiction like nicotine, marijuana, hashish, LSD, love, sex, money, chocolate, work & etc.

I was on a trip up north of Iran and it took me couple of days to put my shit together after I returned to Tehran and I'm back. I can't believe I have e-mails telling me to keep writing, it felt really good & I'm telling you, keep coming here cause I won't give up writing.

What if a cow could understand? when you look at bunch of cows to choose one to kill. when you touch different part of its body to see if it's a good one. When you choose it among all the others. When you change your mind, do they know? When you put it in a van to bring it to the place. When you take the knife and walk towards it. When you take the neck in your hand & others are watching.
Relax! Cows don't think.
But it still is a slaughter & I still don't know what to think about it. Damn it's hard becoming a civilized human being.

As I'm not in the mood for writing, they're arresting an Iranian in London, one of those bastards you can tell he is a killer only by seeing his face. As I'm not in the mood many important is happening to Iran and I'm too tired to care. As I see it there is only one future and it will come, all this is a killing delay and we can do nothing about it. At least I can wait for parliament election to not vote, how active is that?

You know what's hard? Trying to build your own rules and regulations in your life. Acting on the basis you believe is right.
You know what's fun? Believing it's the only way your life is going to have a meaning.
You know what's harder? Becoming 24 and each person you think would find her way in your rules disappointed you.
you know what's more fun? seeing other people doing it after all.
The problem: Doubt
The relief: Writing all this.
Self reminder: Maybe you havn't become those rules and believes.

Not everything I write here is my belief. Like this sentence from Matrix I wrote in the previous post. I don't believe it's true, as a matter of fact I believe it's wrong. But it's a beautiful sentence and it worth reading and thinking about. I myself like to read it again and think it through. So there's a rule: when I write something here it doesn't mean I agree with it, it means there's something about me and that sentence, maybe I havn't made up my mind about it yet.
Wednesday, August 20, 2003
There's nothing there until you think there is. Is it right? If it is right it means there is no right or wrong. So the first sentence should obey this rule too. I mean if you think "there's nothing there until you think there is" so "there's nothing there until you think there is" but if you don't think "there's nothing there until you think there is" ....

Selling the car for about 5 million tomans. Going to the court (It's a long, old story which I'm not gonna talk about now) and let the motherfuckers do the flagellation so we can get our 2 million they're keeping there. It's 7 million already. If my father can add some money to it we can buy a land somewhere and leave it for a couple of years. If everything goes on normally that piece of land will worth about 30 million then. In the mean time, I can save some money I spend on the car like gas and mechanical stuff. It seems like a good idea & the only way we can make some easy money in this country.

I forgot something, the scenes of people dancing in Zyone (spelling is write?) Blew my mind away. When that tribal music turned into a trance had great meaning, I thought it meant they're the same only in different centuries. I remembered Nietzsche saying "I believe in one god who dances". For those of you who find my excitement for dancing strange I should say in Iran we can't dance. I mean there are no clubs in which you can dance to your favorite music. We go to parties sometime although it's dangerous because it's illegal & places are small with weak sound systems. I would appreciate a week on Ibiza.
I saw Matrix_Reloaded finally. It was good enough. Philosophy was good, special effects were fucking great & there were many good lines in dialogues. Some of them stock to my mind and maybe I write them here sometime. That moment which love vetoed philosophy & technology was good although I'm sure many of you didn't like it. Anyway, release the next part sooner for god's sake.

What Goes On Around Iran
BBC has this full coverage on Iran-US relation by Roger Hardy. It's a four part article which goes through the topic deeply and step by step and clear the situation all the way. The first part looks at the debate in Washington over how to deal with the Islamic regime. The second part is about US perceptions of how durable the Iranian regime may prove to be, and what might take its place. In the third part Hardy focuses on what Americans think about the issue of Iran and terrorism. Finally, the fourth part is where we reach the conclusion.
It says: "So, what policy options might the US choose to pursue? The choices range from engagement with Iran to the aggressive pursuit of "regime change". "I think that, while we have to keep uppermost the nuclear-weapon component of our policy, at the same time we ought to try to engage Iran on some of these difficult issues," says Mr Hamilton - the former Democratic Party Congressman. Joshua Muravchik, a prominent neo-con of the right-wing think-tank, the American Enterprise Institute, thinks that the goal of regime change in Iran is at least clearly implicit in what the Bush administration is trying to do. A few of the neo-cons favour military action to remove what they see as the threat posed by Iran, for example, through strikes against its nuclear facilities. Some people believe that the neo-conservatives are not that strong anymore but if the neo-cons have been temporarily weakened, they are certainly not out of the game. They are biding their time, waiting for George W Bush to win a second term in next year's presidential elections. For now, US policy is in limbo, but sooner or later the policy-makers will need to decide whether they want to negotiate with the Iranian mullahs in order to change their behaviour, or isolate and bully them in the hope they fall from power."
Confession To Make
I'm worried & anxious. What if someday I pick up the phone and on the other side there's this guy who invites me to a meeting in national security places. I know it seems weird, I haven't done anything but you know I'm one of the 100 (did it reach that number or we're over it) English weblogs written by Iranians and I'm in Iran. Who knows what they think, maybe someday they find us a threat to their power too. OK, it doesn't mean anything, it was just a feeling I shared.

Experimental Philosophy For Fun
There are five apes in a cage. A banana is hung from the ceiling & there are some stairs to the banana. The first time the apes go for the banana, a guy sprays cold freezing water to them. They get all wet and freezing and get back to their places. After some time apes start to reach the banana again. Again the man sprays the freezing water on them and they come back to their first positions. After a long time one of the apes try to go up the stairs but the others suddenly attack him and beat the hell out of him.
After that we replace one of the apes with a new one. The new ape tries to catch the banana but all of sudden all four apes attack him and beat him to death. We continue the replacing till we got five new apes. Check it out, there are five apes in a cage, a banana hung from the top of the cage and none of the apes tries to eat it. What has happened to these apes? For those who found the philosophy here are some questions to play with.
How is the apes' situation related to humans? Who is that guy with the cold freezing water? Are we the apes, the cage, the banana or maybe the guy? What is that freezing water?

How Smart Is This
I'm understanding something from French activities. First they arrested People's Mujahedin's members just when United States was thinking about using them against Iran in a battle. Now when Iran's judiciary was arresting everybody they publish an article in Liberation newspaper which says the revolutionary prosecutor of Teheran Saeed Mortazavi killed Canadian photographer himself. Here is Google's Translation for the article. I think French authorities are making strong efforts to bring down the hardliners to ease up the situation & help solving the problems politically. It just bump into my head, I have no proves.
News & Stuff
Death of Iranian-Canadian photographer - Zahra Kazemi - is becoming a real problem for the government. I just saw Italian minister for equal opportunities, Stefania Prestigiacomo said: "What happened to the Canadian photographer Zahra Kazemi in Tehran is appalling, and I am very worried now. It is not tolerable that today, when civilization should have overcome barbarities, a person can be beaten to death just because it wants to do its job." Then added: "It is time for the international community to intervene with determination in countries such as Iran, to make them adopt real and concrete measures in favour of human rights." Those are strong words & very important because as far as I know Italy is head of UE now. News about Iran's government Blocking websites are still around as I found an article on Index For Free Expression which says: "In addition to banning about 80 newspapers and magazines, authorities have created a list of 'immoral' and 'political' sites that 'make fun of religious and political figures in the country'. ISPs could face court action if they do not comply." After giving information about some arrested journalists it concludes: "A total of 17 journalists are currently detained in Iran, which makes it the biggest prison for journalists in the Middle East."
As things go crazy in Iran around topics like Human Rights & Freedom Of Speech Iran postpones visit of U.N. rights official. The reason might be new journalists arrests or death of Canadian photographer although Iran's official IRNA news agency said the visit was postponed due to problems arranging Ligabo's schedule.
I can't believe this - Cuba jams Iran broadcasts. I always thought Cuba was a reliable country in the world. I don't like the channels broadcasting from the U.S. myself but they had no right to jam them, I mean come on Mr. Castro! What did you think you were doing teaming up with our government? Do you wanna die alone?
Seems to be true, Iran has Al-Qaeda's spokesman & after they tried to get rid of it by returning him back to Kuwait, their Interior minister says "his country does not want to know al-Qaeda spokesman after being stripped of his citizenship." There have been some gossips about Iran trying to make a business out of arresting Al-Qaeda's members with U.S. which haven't been proved to be right yet.
Inside Iran, reformist forces are making what some observers have described as a last-ditch effort to thwart the country's increasingly defiant conservative minority, which controls the key levers of power in the Islamic Republic. The strongly worded appeal to Khamenei, sent on July 15 and signed by 350 reform-minded intellectuals, is clearly an attempt to blunt the conservatives' political momentum. There is a really good article about it here which I stoled some sentences of. I really want to go to bed now but you may have time to see this and something I really wanna show you is a Private art exhibition held by a couple who have been in iran around the 50s. One of them said in an interview: "I've learned that a lot of times when we are in America, we think of other countries as being uneducated, but that is very wrong," she said. "Some of the most well educated people I've met were in Iran."

Progressive Way Of Life
Mind is a dangerous thing we got, awareness is as dengerous. Sometimes I think how better my life would be if I didn't understand half of the things I understand now (not that I understand too much, half of what I understand now no matter how much it is). But it's just one side of it, I mean there was no meaning to it all if we had no brain in our heads. We should figure the ways our brains work. Progression is the answer I found. It means my brain should work all the time; my life should go on all the time. Every second I waste and let my mind fool around, twice that time I should spent to get it back to the game. In progression there is no speed limit, it's about going on.
A Non-Working Day
Wake up late (8:30), take a shower, thinking I should cut my hair, attend an interview in Kish language institute, buy a newspaper, cut my hair short, take another shower, eat lunch, go to the pool, drink lots of fruit juice, read, surf the net, talk to Rosita & piss her off, count the days I didn't smoke for the 1000th times, organize some stuff in my room, manage a schedule for seeing the galleries, eat dinner, write this, ..........

I heard they have filtered Blogspot. I still can reach it with my ISP, but maybe next time I connect I can't. I'd be really sad & angry if that happens. I can't believe we're getting furthur back to basics. There's a good news though; as they moving faster in their way they're reaching the end sooner, because no one can swim against the river. I can live without blogging as long as I can listen to Radiohead & Depeche Mode & ... .

Once upon a time there was this great newspaper called hamshahri. they printed about half a million of it & it was sold out by noon. Some of the greatest journalists worked there and they had a 8-page additional issue which was even better than the newspaper itself. They all are gone now & the newspaper is turning to bullshit. I won't buy hamshahri anymore & I must say the hell with this country that we have nothing we like in it.
Here comes the most anticipated day of the year so far. I don't think it will go anywhere. There are maybe some small street fights but nothing important. Universities are closed, Parliament members asked students not to do anything on this day, which means they're afraid for people's lives. Students wrote a letter to head of UN and asked for help. Their leaders have been arrested (kidnapped) after a news conference. Head of Mosharekat party sent a letter to president Khatami & said there are some activities going on in prisons to make students and other reformist prisoners confess against members of his party. United States sending positive signals to the government and I heard some of the opposition TVs broadcasting from US & England went off.
I think the US government is playing a game with Iran; they ease up on Iran just when every country is forcing Iran about nuclear activities & human rights. It will make Iran's leaders accept their demands easier & after Iran accepted something they going to get hard again to move another step. By the way they realized they don't have any alternatives in Iran. so they have to show a little tenderness to solve some problems.
I wish this happens: Iran hardliners arrest some of reformists so in a couple of month a group of reformists become the opposition. University students have done that already. They will be the best, people will like them, they know what is going on in Iran & they can work with the world especially United States. By end of the year, when it's gonna be parliament election and no one is going to attend this opposition can work with axes of power in Iran to compete hardliners and may do something. Here is something very important; I don't think we can make it through democracy without people like Rafsanjani. Because they are way more powerful than we think. They have all the money and industries & the good thing is they are ready for a deal.

For those who don't know (That may contain about 90% of you Iranian readers & 95% of non-Iranian readers) Iran's art scene is full of talented people and they increase everyday. I, Ali, Reza & Ghazal has decided to attend as many art galleries as we can this summer. We did it & I must say it worth the time we spend. There are many great works in every area such as Painting, Drawing, Photography, decorating & ... . I'm thinking about a way to show them here or anywhere, first I should search for internet databases of Tehran art galleries (If there are any) then I know what is best to do.
Back to work after about 20 days. I study civil & I work as an assistant engineer in a building. It's a great job, I love it. It's full of action scenes. I like people I work with a lot, They're smart, professional & friendly. Actually my own boss has become the one person I can talk with about anything and learn something.
He's going on a trip in 10 days for some 20 days & I'll be in charge in that time. It's gonna be a big responsibility & a great chance, I'm so excited.

About Quit Smoking Pot
OK, here comes the end of the eleventh day of my quit smoking pot program. It went really well. I was going to write about it on its 15th day, but something important just came up to my mind. As I got on with my program (That means I hung out with lots of non-smoker friends, I called many others to see how they're doing and if we could do something together, I bought a Badminton Racket, I played badminton & manage to do it on a regular basis, I told my smoker friends not to hand over pot to me when we're together & they listened) I figured I should not talk about drugs with these new people I go out with. Because it's an interesting topic and they know I have information they would wanna talk about it. I found it important no to do it.
Since this weblog works as kind of a record keeper for me, I thought I should not wait until the 15th day.

There’s something I should say. The political situation of Iran is so hopeless & everytime I want to write about it I just don’t feel like it. The worst thing is I can write about what goes on around Iran but I can’t write about what goes on in Iran. It’s obviously because I can see no hope in the country but in the mean time I look outside for help. We’re in deep shit. Who would want foreigners to interfere in his country, we should think of some solutions.

What Goes On Around Iran
Ok, When they can't attack (is that right?) Iran They control the government economically. It's the best way and if they do it seriously they get anything in a short time. Iran has nothing but oil, every industrial power we had broke down because of stupid governmental management over the past two decades. If Americans can delay new deals with Iran, It's going to be tough. They have started it with Japan. "Japan is eyeing an oil deal with Iran that could strain ties with the United States, which is trying to isolate Tehran for allegedly sponsoring terrorism" I found in Star On Line. There is another thing about Iran's relations to India on Kansascity.com. It says: "The United States should be wary of the strengthening ties between the troublesome regime in Iran and India, a nuclear power whose government sometimes behaves in irresponsible fashion."
In middle of a two-day visit to Iran Jack Straw - Britain Foreign Minister - Declared that "he would urge Iranian President Mohammad Khatami later Monday to allow more intrusive inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities by the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency", he said "No one should ever compare Iran with Iraq in terms of their political systems or their danger", then he added "if Iran fails to do so, they will not be able to make progress on other issues" including a planned trade agreement between Iran and the European Union.
As far as I know Iran has resisted UK pressure to open up its nuclear sites to tougher inspections, saying it would expect "positive steps" in return. But Hassan Rohani, secretary-general of the Supreme National Security Council, told visiting British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw that Iran would invite ElBaradei for "talks to remove technical problems," the official IRNA news agency reported. "He has received the invitation and intends to respond positively," IAEA spokeswoman Melissa Fleming told Reuters.
After all these political activities it's good to see what "THE HAWKS" want: The United States must be willing to destroy a range of Iranian facilities to ensure the elimination of Iran's nuclear weapons program, A report by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy asserts.
It’s like there is no one who chooses the right thing before getting fucked up a couple of times.
It means we first come strong.
Then we break.
Then we break.
Then we break.
Then we become a weak fucked up person who is finally accepting.
Then it’s the time you face people who hasn’t been broken yet. They push you away and you see what’s happening but there’s nothing you can do, because they have to experience it themselves.
Maybe we shouldn’t worry, cause there’s nothing that time can not heal.

Let’s talk about “St. Anger”. I first was so excited about hearing a thrash metal album played by metallica, I still am. But maybe it’s better to first see it without considering it a metallica material.
Vocal is bad. Sometimes it gets annoying. Especially when he is turning from his hard voice to his soft voice, something bad happens in between.
Lyrics are good. As it’s clear they’re angry. There are brilliant lines everywhere & the important thing is it gets along well with the music.
Music is in the middle. Many of the rhythms seems like they have been played before. Maybe they listened to too much "system of a dawn". There no melodies, I have no problem with that. You wanna know the truth, I don’t know what’s wrong with it, I like it when I listen but there is no will to listen again. Maybe this style just doesn’t tolerate many over 4-minutes songs.
I think it will take another album for them to find a unique acceptable style after all these years of bullshit like “load” & “reload”. After all there are 3-4 songs I really liked. I like the feeling in lyrics that they’re not proud what of wasted years. I like the feeling they want to be back.
Anyway, It’s a good return.

Quit Smoking Pot
Target: not smoking pot anymore
Plan: I stay home more than I did these last months, maybe last couple of years.
I make a list of my friends who doesn't smoke and I manage to hang out with them more.
I want my close friends (which I hang out with a lot) not to hand me pot when they're smoking and consider me as a non-smoker.
I do not drink instead of smoking until the time I know it's not instead.
I do a sport this summer; I work out at home everyday.
I drink a lot of water.
It began June 25 2003 as I woke up.

What goes on around Iran
Ok, politics again. Iran is in headlines these days, no doubt about that. I have never seen this much articles in U.S. state newspapers about Iran. It’s like each one of them has something to say about us.
It was the same way Iraq war occurred, first it was in the newspapers, but politicians denied everything, then, step by step U.S. officials start to say the same things. It was exactly when the public heard enough of it so people wouldn’t freak out hearing them from the president. This is how things work in 2003 and everyone should gain their own interests through the media, and at the end I believe people won’t pick something wrong. So if anyone has anything to say should say it now.
By the way, senator Brownback pushes change for Iran “Using the same philosophy that drove the war in Iraq” said Alan Bjerga in an article at Kansas.com.
In the mean time secretary of state – Colin Powell – is doing the same thing I described above. He said: "We are against Iranian support of terrorist activities, against [a] nuclear weapons development program. We hope that the Iranians will not play an unhelpful role in our reconstruction efforts in Iraq." And then he said: "But for some to go beyond that and say the United States is getting ready for something aggressive or looking for another place to have a conflict, it is absolutely wrong." There's another article agrees that U.S. officials are doing the same thing they did with Iraq.
I found an article at Sify.com based in India which looks at the situation from opposite view. It agrees that revolution in Iran went the wrong way, but it also says that we – Iranian – owe it to ourselves and it’s our problem, we should get over it. It warns Bush: “Bush must have realized by now that conquering Iraq may have been a least difficult of problems but how does he conquers the hearts & minds of a people.”
People's Mujahedeen's situation is steel not clear. France goverment has released many of them but some are still in jail. there some sayings about returning them to Iran but seems untrue. They are doing anything they can to avoid any further harm.
And the most important issue about Iran is our nuclear power. Russian President Vladimir Putin said his country would condition its nuclear cooperation with Iran on Tehran's openness to the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency. He pointed to an unofficial deal and said: "Moscow would insist that the new Iraqi authorities allow some of Russia's major investment projects to go forward." Iran has not accept new not-arranged visits yet but with this much pressure from around the world, they will.
At the end here is one thing Iran did to ease the situation in the past couple of days - and I must say it worths nothing. they declare that Iran has identified some of Al-qaeda members that were arrested in Iran.

You’re back to your shelter, shelter is cozy and warm & it’s secure. You remind me that I once had a shelter. It’s full of concentration, power, and beautiful thoughts and …. .
But now when I’m there, something is missing. Now that I know someone like you exists.
I’m watching you from my shelter. I watch you loving who you are and becoming who you love, but I can’t let you go, because I’m the poet and you’re my muse.

There is something weird about bloging and feeling bad about some of the posts. because every post shows a feeling that belongs to a specific period of time.
It's a good way of reviewing personal feelings.
Some of them I just want to delete, but then I think they'd better be there & so I can know myself better.
To My Own Attention
I should say it now that this is a preparation. I mean this site, because I have my university final exams now & I can’t keep up with the news and all the other stuff in my head. So I’m experiencing everything that comes to my mind, new forms of writing, new links & I’m working on how to use HTML cause I’m weak at that.

So, for the fourth night in some regions of Tehran, demonstrations & street fights took place. I didn’t go to such places like “amirabad”, “velenjak” & “Kargar Street” because of lots of reasons I’ll talk about later. But there is some accurate information and might be interesting: I know one person who was injured at the first night, he was hit in the head, and his skull is cracked. First they took him to one of Sepah’s hospitals, but because of his dangerous situation they let him out to another hospital after his parents gave them a house ownership. I talked to some people who were hit by the “electric sticks” (I don’t know if this is the right name for it) and they said it hurts really really bad and can push a man 2-3 meters away. Friday night I went out with some of my friend and there were obviously too many ambulances in the street with their lights on & they should have been carrying injured people. I was in “Mohseni Square” around 23 P.M. and there were some militia forces around the square but no crowd. My mother went to “gisha Street” Friday night, she said the traffic was so heavy and police forces avoided people from going on the bridge that goes to “amirabad” & under the bridge as they were waiting in the traffic they saw some really bad scenes of special forces attacking people and beat them to death so she called me crying and begged to come home. I personally know a thirty year old man who was arrested in the first night and hasn’t been released yet; he called home the first day and could talk less than a minute to say he is arrested but no more details. Everyone is ready to go out and do something, I mean there is no one happy with the government but it takes time for each individual to have his or her own reasons to go, I talk about it in my future posts.
