  • on this, the 11th anniversary of the bush shoeing incident, i would like to draw your attention to the fact that google recognizes this event as the act of war that Muntadhar al-Zaidi intended it to be. we laugh at this incident (as we should) but let’s not forget the man and the message:

    Muntadhar al-Zaidi (Arabic: منتظر الزيدي‎ Muntaẓar az-Zaydī; born 15 January 1979) is an Iraqi broadcast journalist who served as a correspondent for Iraqi-owned, Egyptian-based Al-Baghdadia TV…   

    During a 14 December 2008 press conference at the prime minister’s palace in Baghdad, Iraq, al-Zaidi threw both of his shoes at then-United States President George W. Bush. “This is a farewell kiss from the Iraqi people, you dog,” yelled al-Zaidi in Arabic as he threw his first shoe towards Bush. “This is for the widows and orphans and all those killed in Iraq,” he shouted as he threw his second shoe. Bush ducked twice to avoid being hit by the shoes. Prime Minister Maliki also attempted to catch one of the shoes to protect Bush. Al-Zaidi was pulled to the floor by another journalist, before being grabbed by Prime Minister Maliki’s guards, kicked, and rushed out of the room. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino was hit in the face by a microphone boom knocked over by a presidential bodyguard resulting in a black eye…

    When asked about the incident by a reporter, Bush said, “It’s a way for people to draw attention. I don’t know what the guy’s cause was. I didn’t feel the least bit threatened by it.”

    Al-Zaidi suffered injuries as he was taken into custody and some sources said he was tortured during his initial detention. Hundreds took to the streets to demand his release. Al-Zaidi was represented by Dheyaa al-Saadi, the head of the Iraqi Bar Association at trial (“I will introduce myself as his lawyer and demand the case be closed and Muntader be released because he did not commit a crime. He only freely expressed himself to the occupier, and he has such a right according to international law.”) On 20 February 2009, al-Zaidi received a 90-minute trial by the Central Criminal Court of Iraq. On 12 March 2009, he was sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting a foreign head of state during an official visit. On 7 April, the sentence was reduced from three years to one year. He was released on 15 September 2009 for good behavior after spending nine months in jail. 

    There were calls throughout the Middle East to place the shoes in an Iraqi museum, but the shoes were later destroyed by US and Iraqi security forces. Al-Zaidi’s shoeing inspired many similar incidents of political protest around the world.

  • I’ve been trying to write an original novel for a while, holding off on it because I don’t have the most concrete of ideas. 

    But at some point you just gotta start. I’ve started many a fic with only the vaguest ideas, why is it so hard to start with something original? Is it because I’m afraid that no one will like what I write? 

    Does it matter? All that matters is that I like it.

  • Every time I see photos or gifs from Midsommar, I keep thinking I want them to be from a movie version of the Susan Cooper YA book The Greenwitch, or some other something like the Dark is Rising series, instead of a horror movie. Because it could kind of fit? The the visuals of the film are so gorgeous - pictures have such pretty flowers and textiles, why does the movie have to be a horror movie?

    (ps the movie version of the first DiR book was terrible as an adaptation of the books. which are great and you should read. I am pretty sure that they were inspiration for Harry Potter, but also with a bunch more British Isles myth stuff.)
