Hanan Cohen is a leftie, kind of like me.
This is for real: Ma’ariv, a newspaper that I generally do not read, has redeemed itself with a tremendous article on the subject of weblogs in Israel. I am dork, here me roar!
For an annotated translation, please refer to this posting.
I was first made aware of this article in this major Israeli daily via a random email sent to me by Hadas, who really likes my previous posting. And, as for Mr. Cohen, he called me a “leftist asshole (the kind I like)” Fucking hell, why is it that only guys come onto me?
As per the radio show mentioned, ‘tis be true. 22:00 to 23:00 Israel time, 3pm to 4pm US East Coast time, or some other time depending on your geographical positioning in relation to the international time center most likely run by elderly Jews while they’re not plotting interest rates. Our show, is in English, a little dirty and oft times funny. Just follow the link to the picture of the camel talking into a microphone and listen away.*
I’ll leave it there, many links to follow.
*TIP - it’s best to listen to our (me and my roommate Asi) radio show either: a) stoned b) drunk c) drunk and stoned d) with friends e) with friends who are also drunk and stoned.
POST SCRIPT: Our radio show did not happen. Asi and I went, having been told all the equipment was up and running; however, it was not. If you have some money and you’re reading this, give it to me. If you don’t trust me then you can give it to the university – and have it ear marked for the radio station. That’d be mighty fine of you. But for real, just give it to me.
AND, I should point out that, beyond being called a leftist asshole in a major Israeli publication, there was an excellent compliment regarding my writing itself.
