game of crones (La Lechera), Wednesday, 20 June 2012 15:07 (nine years ago) link

I might check it out. I always thought it was interesting that it actually wasn't a sex thing and that (as far as I understand it) they were treated well and showered with gifts and that for most of them the biggest problem was boredom and being away from home.

(✿◠‿◠) (ENBB), Wednesday, 20 June 2012 15:22 (nine years ago) link

Oh, that's weird -- from what I gather it was definitely a sex thing. What I like about it is that she totally seems like a real person by virtue of how clearly she illustrates what was going on -- she's really good at writing about her own life and communicating who she is (or who she wants us to think she is) and also moving the story along.

shmamille shmaglia (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 24 July 2012 04:38 (nine years ago) link

I'm currently exploring the hidden but crucial links between the vein structure of the Tsutsuji Azalea leaf and the drum patterns Fred White played on Donny Hathaway's 1973 album Extension of a Man. It's all I think about, as a matter of fact.

At a loose end one day last week, I dressed up for a lark in a blue-grey suit-and-tails with a purple-green dress-and-gown slung over it. Desirous of creating an impression, and perhaps kindling a little aspiration in the youth of the neighbourhood, I decided to put in an appearance at my local exotic hot-house.

There, to my disappointment, no-one paid me the slightest morsel of attention. So I began examining one of the brittle, hard Azalea leaves. By chance, "I Love the Lord; He Heard My Cry (Parts I & II)" started playing just then on my iPod. I noticed with a start that Fred White's percussive punctuations fell, in time, exactly where the Azalea's veins fell in space.

The chlorophyllic ducts, light green against their dark background, reminded me of the veins on a splendid young equestrian phallus, perhaps the penis of a prize stud living at a high-altitude New Zealand horse farm where the air, early in the morning, is sharp and clear. At such a place there is sure to be a glasshouse containing rare and wonderful blooms, and it shouldn't take much lysergic encouragement, if you are there, to begin seeing clear parallels between their leaf structure and the rhythms of Fred White's performances on tracks such as "Come Little Children" and "Lord Help Me".

If this does occur I would recommend that you to skip lunch (let's face it, you have no appetite anyway) and at once climb the path that follows the crystalline stream, rising from the melting huddle of rock-daze to the grinning skull of the treeline, where a paranoid scarecrow stands screeching. If you listen long enough to his scream - which starts terrifying, but becomes more and more beautiful - you will realise that it's Donny Hathaway's version of "Love, Love, Love". Just sung very, very slowly.

two weeks pass...

There's a 3-mile Navy pier off the coast of Sandy Hook, NJ that was purpose-built for loading AMMUNITION ONTO NAVAL VESSELS. It has to be 3 miles long in case ammo detonates while loading!!! Rail cars carry the ammo across the country from the factories and all the way down the pier to the docks.

Am having crazy "inaccessible places" longings about it right now but apparently they do not fuck around with it being off-limits so I'm thinking that's a "No."

http://njscuba.net/zzz_sites/navy_pier_aerial.jpg

The way I found out about it was that my plane flew over it on Saturday and I had no idea where it was, it's just this ENORMOUS PIER with a weird trident-shaped end, just hanging out in a bay. I looked it up on gmaps and Jesus Christ, of course it's military.

Think I've tried an otherwise unflavoured ALoe Vera drink from a chinese shop in Dublin. That was a while back, but I think that was reasonably straight.

I need to work on my curry game; they are not turning out as consistent as I'd like to. I cannot for the life of me do that thing where you heat the cream at the top of the can of coconut milk up and get the oil to separate from the solids! And I'm using rly good milk w/o emulsifiers, too.

Yo! MTV La Tengo (Stevie D(eux)), Thursday, 17 January 2013 16:28 (eight years ago) link

Why you do this?! Is this a necessary step?

ljubljana, Thursday, 17 January 2013 22:08 (eight years ago) link

Yes, when you do this before adding the curry paste, it creates a fat in which to fry the curry (which is a necessary step) instead of just simmering it in some liquid. You can use veg oil too but apparently this coconut cream separation thing is better.

Yo! MTV La Tengo (Stevie D(eux)), Thursday, 17 January 2013 22:59 (eight years ago) link

It also makes small flavorful pools of oil flout about your curry when it's done instead of just being a homogenous goop.

Yo! MTV La Tengo (Stevie D(eux)), Thursday, 17 January 2013 22:59 (eight years ago) link

Thanks, will give that a try. My curries are always homogenous goops, and if I add coconut milk I chuck in the whole tin at the end.

ljubljana, Thursday, 17 January 2013 23:16 (eight years ago) link

I have not been able to get my coconut cream to separate ever, maybe it's something to do with the canning. I usually just fry the curry paste in a little oil, then add the coconut cream until you get the green oil and go from there

Patricia Piccinini stuff is cool! I sadly am reminded of one of the most awkward artist talks ever, though, where multiple people asked variations of the question, "So, you don't actually sculpt them? You draw them? What do you do?"

The History Channel - was an avid watcher of Pawn Stars all the way through uni, but have only recently picked up on American Restoration, American Pickers and Storage Wars. This stuff is just so easy to watch without really engaging whatsoever.

Rowntrees Fruit Gums - delicious, and the after-taste you get from drinking water after eating these things is an absolute delight. They also last for ages if you chew slowly so when I'm sneaking them into my mouth whilst sat in court I don't have to draw attention to myself by continually rustling about and grabbing more.

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susannah Clarke - a little bit twee and slow, kinda wish there was a little more jeopardy at times, but it's pretty charming and I'm really enjoying the portrayal of magic in this book as opposed to the magic in something like Harry Potter. It's pleasantly eerie and creepy and fairytale-ish - mysterious chiming bells and dancing music that always appear to be coming from the next room in the house, little glades of trees that lead to dark paths through forests that can't possibly be there in reality, rooms that suddenly appear at the end of a corridor in the house and lead to a different house entirely etc. It's much more fun than "Here's a wand, point it like a gun and here is the one word spell to make fire / water / kill people" and so on. Looooong book for what it is, though.

Tartan - a recent development, since I knocked up my own kilt for a party thrown in honour of Rabbie Burns the other night. Never really tried skirts before but I've worn it around the house for the last few days and I'm finding it peculiarly liberating. Perhaps this could be the first step in a wonderful voyage of self-discovery?

Feeling the lack of this in my own life at the moment. In the past 6 months I've gone from having more free time than I knew what to do with, enough to spend 2 or 3 hours most days just listening to new music and exploring old bits and bobs on Spotify, to suddenly having maybe 2 or 3 hours of free time a day full-stop. I really don't know where those extra hours I want for music appreciation are gonna come from.

I have gone to 4 diff places trying to find this white Mtn Dew and I cannot fucking find it (except for this one 7-Eleven where all the bottles had expired 4 months ago)

think this is part of the dewmocracy promotion, which the united states enjoyed many years ago but is only now coming to canada, where we've had a very small range of mountain dew products to choose from. the four flavours available are: white out, supernova, code red, and voltage. i think code red is a proven winner and i'd welcome its introduction to the canadian market, but white out was an unexpected treat (it's available in the united states, although i've never seen it, and in japan), an overacidic citrus crispness that has an artificial flavour profile closer to what would be produced by dissolving a handful of sugarcubes in a bottle of fresca. also, it's white.

i'm not sure if passing its expiry date would harm it. it might be a bit flat. i'm a fan of the sticky flatness and brown sugary sort of character of expired coke zero.

dylannn, Thursday, 18 April 2013 06:42 (eight years ago) link

no. i am going to explain this from memory so, if i have some facts wrong, forgive me.

mountain dew didn't have caffeine in its canadian product for a long time. they tried to put it in and couldn't get the recipe approved, because... yeah, something to do with cola having caffeine and nothing else having caffeine, except stuff labeled as an energy drink (like, ther was red bull in our 7-11 coolers while mountain dew still had no caffeine). mountain dew said it was necessary and was a flavour additive and should be allowed.

now, mountain dew has caffeine in it in canada.

I learned once from Wikipedia™ that in Canada, soda that isn't brown can't have caffeine in it

I don't think there's a law but in the UK caffeinated sodas are generally brown (plus Irn Bru but that's a category of its own) (plus energy drinks now but they come in distinctively-labelled cans rather than bottles)

so I was surprised when I went to the US and wanted a cold drink but since it was 10pm I didn't want to confuse my jetlagged bodyclock further with caffeine, so I bought an orange-flavoured soda rather than a Coke from the motel drinks machine, and then realised it was also caffeinated, as were all the other sodas in the machine

fruit-flavoured sodas are just not caffeinated here (Dr Pepper claims it is fruit-flavoured but it is a) brown b) mostly tastes of not-quite-cola so it doesn't count)

i shouldn't have promoted white out as being similar to a sugared fresca. the flavour profile is far closer to mountain dew or cheap powdered lemonade or malic acid coated sour keys than the subtle grapefruit saccharine of fresca.

i feel like you want a sugary grapefruit soda. have you ever had mirinda grapefruit? how about ting grapefruit? i was going to ask about wink but then i looked it up and it was discontinued in 2004 or went through a rebranding and now exists under a name i've never come across.

Two of my friends who live in England went to the Maldives for their honeymoon. I think it's shorter than that travel time wise from there but not by much. I'm pretty sure it took them a full day to finally get to their island. They did have one of those sweet huts on the water and the pictures are AMAZING. They were there for two weeks and said that by the end it started to get a little boring because there's literally nothing to do except lie around, take walks and go in the water but I guess you don't really want to fly that long to get somewhere and then leave a week later. Anyway, yeah, I want to go too.

there must be a cheaper way to get from the usa to the maldives, quick google says from £560 return from london

Yeah, I knew it was cheaper to fly from England cause those two are not loaded by any means. I think travel in general is cheaper from the UK. We don't really have anything like you guys do in terms of budget airlines and stuff. There are cheaper ones but not cheap cheap like you get over there.

Between both of those two Levan comps AND the two 2xCD Mancuso Loft comps AND the 2xCD Moulton comp you will prob have a fair amount of overlap but it will also be pretty comprehensive. The Moulton stuff has a different vibe than the Levan stuff (Moulton strikes me as maybe more lush and less funky/dubby)

Yeah, that is a good one and the Lion King one too iirc.

The tricky part is finding like only-for-Genesis games bcz most of the ones that were also released on SNES were much better on SNES (are there any exceptions to this? Besides maybe some extra blood in Mortal Kombat or something?).

Iago Galdston, Thursday, 27 June 2013 22:18 (eight years ago) link

The Genesis Castlevania is the best of the series imo. Fastest play, smoothest controls, and great graphic gimmicks that put Mode 7 to shame. Plus you travel around Europe! The music is way better than the SNES one as well, which is no small shakes.

Apparently the Contra is great too but i haven't tried it.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Thursday, 27 June 2013 22:20 (eight years ago) link

the sound chip for the genesis is the same as the yamaha dx-7 iirc, so it sounds better than most snes music — but the snes games had better composers working on them.

Making chicken mole in the summer. I was so against it, just not done, never had mole in the summer, unless it was a wedding and it was served really late. Since Oklahoma hasn't been too hot, been having mole with homemade corn tortillas nopal and queso fresca regularly.

watching flowers begin to bloom, those taht I grew from seed anyway.
Long arabic shirts though I did wonder if they were the best thing in this heat, but they could be designed for it, though on the other hand maybe they're made more for London weather.

The new 2nd hand cords I bought yesterday & do seem pretty decently new. Bought them a size big and they feel snugger than I would hope. Sedentary courses may do that for you, hope not.
Not into my previous pair wearing thin since I loved them.
Kenya Special though I had hoped it would have more Luo music on.

Mapping my flat for a project though may have to change what I'm doing since this would be part of my portfolio. Hopefuly will mean it gets springcleaned though.
Reading Tom WAits on Tom WAits which I've had out of the library rather too long. Kept thinking I should take it back cos I wasn't reading it. But now getting into it.
Want to read some more Patricia Highsmith since I just read Ripley's Game. Been meaning to read her for ages, probably since seeing the 2 films from around 15 years ago. this and the earlier Talentd Mr Ripley.
My walkman, though would prefer it if tracks didn't glitch out. been happening since I got the thing 2nd hand on a few tracks. I just start getting into something and it doesn't play through and has me worried about the machine stopping working. But when it isn't doing that i get a continual flow of surprise juxtaposition and possibly tracks i haven't heard in quite a while.

#REV! (Stevie D(eux)), Monday, 26 August 2013 16:45 (seven years ago) link

Stevie: After much research I ended up using a bag of rice, 160z, a cup of almonds and three huge canela sticks. Soaked them overnight in much water in the fridge for 24 hours. Then I ran it through the blender in two batches, strained. I ended up with rich, frothy, thick horchata, added sugar then added a wee bit of unsweetened almond milk.

Strained it with a dinky strainer but thinking of using cheesecloth to really wring it out? I think a really awesome blender would help too, perhaps a Vitamix (there, I said it).

Thinking about tie dying denim and practicing cooking. Left myself too broke to actually start doing either to the level I should be.

weeping copiously at having failed to get the certificate on the course I just finished. Or just getting frustrated taht I can't practice at home and can't properly channel myself and manage time during an exam.
Or taht I couldn't break away from what I was doing far enough to see what was going wrong. & that everything that was going wrong was something that was minute in itself and could have been easily rectified if I could have taken 10. Wondering if I'd been allowed to have a water bottle in the exam it would have given me enough of a step back to refocus.
Continual autopsy of spilt milk, which would have been handier to have in the exam itself.

positively, questionably(?) Blake's 7 which i've just watched most of the way through. Currently on the 4th series. Not sure if I watched this far before. The early episodes, those with Blake himself in are pretty good, a little clichéd in places some of the later stuff is also good.
Wasn't there a film of this being made? Wondering how they would transfer it, presumably instantly get rid of the low budget quality. I've been reminded of the remake of Solaris thanks to the use of stairs of office buildings, carparks etc as sets in the early episodes, or possibly throughout.
Wonder what Viking production some of the minor characters borrowed costumes from too.

Think I'll rewatch Neverwhere at some point soon too.

Qawal's new tandoor oven. They had some of these in London a while back , people were opening shop front shops selling naan breads that had been cooked as the customer waited. THey used a tandoor oven taht I think has only recently started to be produced in England, previously had to be imported from INdia. This is a small 4ft tall metal box with a central hollow metal shaft over a fire in the bottom of the unit. I think from having seen them on tv a while back the traditional style tandoor was about 10 feet tall and made of clay, but that programme was a very long time ago. Anyway the process is the same , the cook slaps the dough for the bread onto the side of this flue/shaft and it stays there for a short period of time while it cooks through.
He has some variants of this where the bread is stuffed with other ingredients. I must get around to trying that next week, though he keeps changing the menu each week so may have some other delectable I haven't tried and I'l have to wait.

Lie ins reading. After 6 fruitless months of getting up at 6.30 which included recently waking up at 4 or 5am and not wanting to go back to sleep the ability to do this is most refreshing.

The White Goddess which I just read a chunk of and will probably now finish if things stay as they are at the moment.

Neverwhere the 1996 tv show. THink I've seen/read all the way through each of the versions this appeared in unless it was also a stage show of some kind. But not atched this version in th elast couple of years. I'm wondering what the b&w/colour design looks like on a pristine copy since I think this was video based not dvd.
Funny how many Dr Who candidates this has in it. Think it had 3 in th efirst episode since I think that's DAvid Tennant as leader of the rat-speakers. Peter Capaldi is the Angel Islington and i think Paterson Joseph was the black actor that turned the role down if what I'm hearing elsewhere is true. On the strength of this performance he would have been good. Interesting to see Capaldi in a different role to Malcolm too, wondering if this is any better reflection of how he'll play the Dr?

Alan Moore's Promethea which i don't think I managed to get right through previously. Think something prevented me from finishing the series when I d/loaded it. Drive crash possibly but it's working ok now.

UFO the Gerry Anderson series.
I half like the sylvia Anderson fashions but think there are some major flaws. The submarine crew's string vest tops and Straker's one piece trouser/waistcoat catsuit to name 2.
Like quite a bit of the clothing from Blake's 7 too but that again has some serious flaws. Best stuf seems to have been that supposedly supplied by the Liberator.

Stevolende, Tuesday, 10 September 2013 09:04 (seven years ago) link

thinking about it, i think the pink wigs in UFO are a step too far - hair cut and colour are pretty big clues used to identify people and getting rid of that would just make that stuff harder.

Weird thing about one of the continually featured roles in UFO being played by the sister of Nick Drake so presumably a much better centered individual. But surprising that they both got recognition as much as they did even if Nick only got it after death possibly plus a few years.
Or is taht over reading the popularity of UFO. It did only really get one season with major discrepancies over running order.

Stevolende, Wednesday, 11 September 2013 22:58 (seven years ago) link

ms drake was in Crossroads (big UK soap set in a motel) for a couple of years iirc, she's probably more famous for that.

koogs, Thursday, 12 September 2013 11:50 (seven years ago) link

Point I was making was about them both getting fame. I think. Hope Gabrielle was better prepared for it than Nick was.
Maybe it was something to do with the creative urge too. Though Nick seemed to find it hard to broadcast his creations. Maybe it was nurtured by their mother who sang and whose cd was released a couple of years back. But maybe all that's been said before.

I presume you mean cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. These are just three complementary 'warm' spices that go well in a moderately sweet setting and with earthy flavors. They're ace. Try them in oatmeal cookies.

springcleaning, still at it getting there slowly
Breaking Bad just getting towards the end of the 5th series after starting at the beginning about a week and a half ago. Unfortunately my dvd recorder has managed to shut itself and refuse to open. It's set up to shut the drawer after 10 minutes but up to now I've managed to have a disc in or have it open somehow but it has been sticking for ages. Very frustrating so I'm not into it. Having to watch episodes on my computer now when I prefer watching things on tv.
Qawal's Indian food he had a gazebo set up yesterday to keep customers dry but it kept nearly lifting off in the wind. He does a lovely onion Bhaji and pretty much everything else is tasty. Curry was really zingy yesterday.
Manchild In the Promised Land by Claude Brown
Veep series 1, don't think it's as great as Iannucci's british stuff but has a lot of great moments.
Thinking about getting a bagless vacuum cleaner. Since I have to get bags mailorder for my current one.
Finally having a table that's large enough to work on so think I will finally set up the sewing machine I bought last year when I finally get this springcleaning finished.
Repetition for emphasis.
Rearranging material on my hard drives.

i guess the the internet is kinda a limiting way of understanding people but i would def be surprised knowing stevie wasn't a risotto person. & yeah too much stirring is the point; obviously don't do it if you're in a rush, do it when you just wanna spend all evening in the kitchen while it gets dark outside, be half stirring, once in a while tending to some vegetable that's gonna get involved, listening to both sides of a tape, &c

i've listened to a lot of shit in my dog-eared time and never once has 'riot in lagos' sounded less than inspirationally captivating and totally out on its own. without question one of the best records ever, or indeed evah

the thing about risotto is its chill autumnal reputation is somewhat overstated imo? like it's p attention-intensive and by the time you've tasted it enough to get the rice just à point you're already kinda sated b4 the platings-up. and yeah you can make it earlier but then there's an additional concern of reheating without recooking but still maintaining stirring consistency. shit's an undertaking man

the cap is counterweighted, so when you uncap & put it on the end of the pen while you're writing it weights it perfectly, writes like a dream

Sewing stuffed toys for the class project. May have overstuffed though. May need to change stuffing too, used an old duvet as had been suggested at one point in class. I'd washed it recently since it had been lying around with holes in for ages.

Thinking of signing up for a dressmaking course at same place. Could pick up a lot more techniques as long as I can make something other than dresses.

The Book of Mormon. Saw it in camera version on Friday but camera version of theatre performance not as good as film. Harder to get angle right I guess, looking down in curved theatre rather than up in straight one.
But hilarious show. Now to see it live live.

Working out what to do with the flat. Got new furniture in shape of table & chairs so need to work out how to make things fit better. Managed to really hem myself in while ripping music for new walkman. Also need to work out how best to house cds that have been ripped. Need another dimension for storage. Or better shelving system.

Adam, what is the best way to obtain a sufficient variety of Perler beads?? It seems like you can buy a grossly overpriced 12-pack of assorted colors, or you can buy a cheap huge bucket that is all mixed together. Is there any other way? I really want to make EarthBound perler art.

vylvyt ylvis (Stevie D(eux)), Saturday, 8 February 2014 20:41 (seven years ago) link

http://www.amazon.com/Perler-Beads-1-000-Count-Tan/dp/B000I0RPUU

This seems like the best bet; 1000-count bags for arounde $2.50 each. I'd just have to pick which colors I'd use the most

vylvyt ylvis (Stevie D(eux)), Saturday, 8 February 2014 20:50 (seven years ago) link

Cool! Go for it! I'm pretty new to it, but I went ahead and bought the bucket of random colors, because I'm cheap and in a way I enjoy sorting those things. I put together a cool Charlie Brown yesterday but during the process realized how little black beads there were in the bucket. I'm guessing it's the most high in demand, so I would say get the bucket and if you run low, you can buy packs of individual beads on Amazon. Getting a nice, big, transparent grid board is worth the investment.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Saturday, 8 February 2014 20:54 (seven years ago) link

James Burke's 1970s series Connections. I just watched through the whole set over the last couple of days while continuing to sew stuffed toys for the class project. Interesting to see this programme nearly 36 years later. The historic parts presumably remain for the most parts valid but this is now reflectively stuck in history itself. Wonder if anybody would approach things the same way now. Or is this an influence on the way tv shows have presented themselves since?

Inside the Animal Mind
Chris Packham show that's been on BBC2 for the last few weeks showing how animals see the world and showing levels of intelligence I hadn't been aware of. For example it seems that the whole Crow family have what he refers to as mental flexibility so they can not only learn to handle a given problem but also apply what they're learnt to other problems. It showed a Raven learning how to open a puzzle box Packham had devised so rapidly they had to slow down the camera. Also a jay learning to get maggots out of a water filled container by dropping stones into the water until it rose enough to get their beak in. THis after having been shown the principle on a totally different set up, a stone dropped onto the top of a box would release a worm from the bottom of the box. So they could take that and figure out water displacement and also differentiate between using this on a water filled container whereas they recognised they couldn't in a sand filled one.
Shows that more animals have the ability to use tools than it has been traditionally supposed. I don't know why the monkey using a twig to get termites from a mound was only noted in 1962. Whether it was dismissed before or just not seen. Also occured to me that you could make a really cool sci fi story based on the idea that animals hadn't had the ability to use tools prior to that date and are rapidly growing in intelligence.

Boardwalk Empire
Just watched through seasons 2&3 over the last week. Hoping there will be more before long though haven't checked if there is already any. Not sure how long I've had those. Maybe when I wake up.

And admrl know that if you are linking to a file in a PowerPoint that is on removable storage, you will run into problems bcz it will point to the video file w/ a full path that incl's a drive letter, so if you plug into a diff machine and it assigns a diff drive letter it won't be able to find the video

there are ways to, like, use Package for CD and go in and modify some settings files to point to something in the same directory but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Linking to video files on anything portable is just a disaster, really.

You could also try embedding a Windows Media Player object on the Developer tab if it's a non-native video format but that's got its own set of issues.

Stevie I need to hear more about this granola.

Like, it makes me sad that anyone would be "in to" SharePoint, but obv the rest of the stuff makes up for that. Especially the granola. And butter.

Psychedelic frock coats cut from patterns based on 19th century garments.
Screaming Jay Hawkins
African Waxed cotton.
upcycling curtains & the fact that the last curtain I bought had round mock crenellations along the top of it. Fleur de lys pattern so I assume it was either somebody making a mock castle decoration for a child's room or some other home made interior design thing.
Kolchak the night stalker.
Free jazz
Psychedelia
redoing work on garments i made a few months ago now that my skill level has improved somewhat. Finally doing the seam finishes on my original floral western frock coat.

never knew what fresh eggs were like until i had some from the chickens at my ex's new place (an intentional community sorta)

clouds, Friday, 8 August 2014 14:57 (six years ago) link

fresh eggs are the best!!

SEEMS TO ME (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 8 August 2014 20:16 (six years ago) link

One of the hens (Eugenie) lays these really elongated, pointy-tipped eggs--they are so weird but cool! Also tasty.

i love fresh eggs, my sister-in-law has a small family farm and her chickens' eggs are incredible

Wondering what 'fearless style' means since my dickensian floral frockcoat was described that way.

Colourfast striped drill, not not colourfast but unfortunately seem to have latter.
The Punk45 protopunk set on Souljazz

Pondering whether I should boycott the Honourable Woman because it has an Israeli heroine and seems to portray the Palestinians in a dodgy light. But otherwise seems to be a good series. Does look like it has some very dodgy Israelis appearing who may be downright evil though.
