  1. Actually, my music was on The Real World and Makin’ the Band… but it’s all the same. Some readers would be more interested in one of my current projects: The Dreams of Sparrows is a documentary about reconstruction-era Iraq, made in collaboration between Iraqi directors and American producers.

  2. With more fear and trepidation than sorrow and tears let me go on record as stating that I am a new guy on the block and wish you good folks would take note of my site: http://www.IsraelPundit.blogspot.com.
    I also have another but it is for the lust-ridden, over 25, curious, playful, curious and not for those devoted to spiriutal quests and mystical experiences (at http://www.Goodshit.phlap.net) at which joint, you will find nice ladies and oddball links of all sorts for art, photography, lit, science and whatever…
    If Mobious is a strip, this site is a strip tease…but the Jewish site should be kept within sight.
