Henna Mania

受過伊斯蘭文化影響的地方都有手部彩繪,尤其在女性之中更盛行。現在很多印度與巴基斯坦的婚禮會做,我也在印尼看過小朋友愛漂亮去參加婚禮也做。古代則是有月經來怕引來邪靈而有避邪之說的功能。透過Henna植物的染料,把可蘭經經節自在手上也很常見。雖然伊斯蘭沒有發明經血污穢之說,而是閃米特族、美索布達米亞地區共有的傳統觀念,但加以改裝後出現了圖騰式的藝術,且在女性中特別常見。20世紀後因為很多西方名人如瑪丹娜使用因此而大為流行,變成一種身體藝術,但其實這項身體藝術早就好存在幾百年,遍佈北非、中東、南亞乃至伊斯蘭東南亞地區。 1. In traditional Islam, a menstruating woman was c onsidered vulnerable, weakened, and polluted;  therefore she could not pray, fast, or  have intercourse.  Menstrual blood was  najis , polluted,  … Continue reading

哈瑪星記事

高雄跟大家想得不一樣。 長年住在首爾的老朋友跟韓國人夫婿一起來高雄玩,我招待,他們玩得開心,很驚訝高雄生活機能與品質這麼好。我有附註說明:工業區空氣很糟,紫外線超標,去 年又氣爆。不過即便如此,我自己也覺得高雄生活品質比較好,我的歪果仁老公也這樣覺得。韓國先生一直稱讚高雄捷運的動線比首爾捷運好很多,也不像台北那麼 擠。因為搭船去旗津玩,又玩電動腳踏車與K-bike(年份比Ubike早,一卡通一直都跟悠遊卡槓上不通用),所以各種交通設施都算便利。輪船搭個三分 鐘只要25元(今年漲價,原本只要15元),就可以悠閒地浮在海灣中且看到85大樓與高雄港也就是台灣最大港與世界第13大港口的壯觀貨櫃造船景象,真的 很值得。K-bike很老舊,但功能正常,除了讀卡機器等待著全面升級外,腳踏車本身聽說比杭州的公共腳踏車好騎很多(聽我弟說的,他一直稱讚高雄腳踏車 好騎,不過我想如果天天都要騎,就會遇到那種不靈光落鏈的腳踏車)。韓國先生喜歡吃雪花冰,他邊吃著輪渡站附近的福泉芒果冰邊跟我說,這跟Ice Monster的一模一樣!我跟他說,Ice Monster一個一碗260元,這一個一碗只要50元。

Eternal Masterpiece Seven Samurai (spoiler alert)

Watched it again after a decade, still an incredibly amazing masterpiece. 畫面緊湊真實,人物刻畫入勝,不管是農民或武士,即使是戲份很少的女性,都有令人印象深刻的處理。 對話就更為高明了,由於每個角色、道具(尤其是旗子、軍備)都配合地翹到好處,讓每次劇情轉折都獲得新突破,因此話語與物品都扮演很重要的角色。黑澤明充滿哲思的台詞,更是緊扣著道義、階級社會、榮譽、慾望、存亡等等議題。

All Songs Rewind: The Legacy Of The ’90s July 07, 2015 2:00 PM ET

那少女少男和聲與恰到好處的吉他混音,完美無暇沒誇張。不論是炒菜、晨跑、夜跑、在酒店醉生夢死或在咖啡店專心讀書,都超級對味的一張超強專輯。

Wonderful Dinner Time during Ramadan 齋戒月的歡樂晚餐時光

根據伊斯蘭曆的穆斯林的齋戒月雖然規定身體健康之成人日出日落不吃不喝,不過每天晚上開齋時,總是會有很多有趣的活動搭配吃飯一起來。今年,土耳其總統的一千萬晚餐醜聞,以及印尼總統的孤兒有獎問答等,都在齋戒月發生。

冤獄。虐型。Bail Fund: 保釋金基金,其實就是保釋金高利貸

2012年到2015年,你做了些什麼?Kalief什麼也沒做,被困在紐約市的Rikers Island的監獄里。他苦等了三年也沒有等到他的審判。中間他曾經被警衛毒打、餓肚子,被其他人圍毆,搞得精神異常,多次嘗試自殺。他被送出獄後,沒多久,自殺身亡。

White Terrorists and Black Churches 白人恐怖主義與黑人教會

不會因為有了查爾斯頓教會的白人恐怖主義屠殺黑人事件,或是幾年前威斯康辛州的白人恐怖主義屠殺錫克教徒事件,警察就大規模突擊檢查、搜身、攔下白人。因為那樣的差別待遇制度是專門為黑人設計的,為穆斯林設計的,以及為了其他少數族裔設計的。
