Go’s Annisa Rochadiat brings us Beit Shocair, a local art and culture hub that is celebrating the unifying power and joy of the arts

M

usic and the arts are wellknown, powerful unifying forces with the capacity to build bridges across various socioeconomic and cultural differences. Here’s an inspiring tale of a recent cultural celebration that sought to capitalize just that in bringing the community together. Hosted under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture in cooperation with community-based initiative ZilZal Al Mahaba and the Beit Shocair for Culture and Heritage, Ayam Beit Shocair (literally meaning, “Days of Shocair House”) is a two-week youth talent festival and art symposium that seeks to highlight the value of art in people’s lives. It also promotes the significance of preserving cultural heritage and encourages young people to express their innovative ideas and emotions through arts, poetry, and music. Located on #38 Khirfan St. in Jabal Amman, Beit Shocair — named after the Shocair family, former patrons of the house in the early 1900s — hosts the annual Ayam Beit Shocair Festival. Prior to becoming one of Amman’s celebrated arts and cultural hubs, Beit Shocair housed Jordan’s first public all-girls school, “Arwa Bint Al Hareth.” Today, this spot is a popular restaurant and — with its many diverse rooms, spread over multiple floors — a home for learning and teaching the arts. Held in mid-July, running under the theme of, “one love, one heart, one hand, one big family,” the Ayam Beit Shocair Festival brought home a very important message: that we are all a big family with shared dreams, life-obstacles, and geography. The event did away with socio-cultural barriers that stand in the way through the unifying power of art through various mediums. Young talented Jordanians from all walks of live showcased their talents in singing, playing musical instruments, rapping, poetry-reading, and drawing, all in the spirit of mutual love and generosity. One participant, Lubna, said the event was like a second home where the young were able to mingle with the elder and vice versa. Another participant

mentioned how he had learned the value of human relationships through the program. It was a great event for participants not only to learn from one another, but also for them to better understand their cultural heritage. The event was successful not only in celebrating youthful artistic talents, but had also served as a community-building cooperation platform between social activists and socially-conscious artists. The Under My Olive Tree social project — set up by activist Ali Dahmash — for instance, also organized an artwork exhibition of the late Palestinian cartoonist and artist, Naji Al Ali (famous for creating the character Handala), during the festival. The exhibition was aimed at raising funds to cover the tuition of underpriviledged students in Jordan. Open all year round, Beit Shoucair is a must-see for the artistically inclined. And while for this year, the Ayam Beit Shocair Festival may be over, it’s never too soon to start planning to participate in next year’s event. Additionally, if you’re interested in volunteering for the associated organization, ZilZal Al Mahaba, or want to remain up-todate with their upcoming events, contact Marlene Al Atrash Abdallah on inspirationm@yahoo.com.

The Ayam Beit Shocair Festival is the brainchild of Beirut-based, top of the line women’s accessories designer and traditional crafts artisan, Marlene Al Atrash Abdallah. A well rounded philantropist, she is also the founder of ZilZal Al Mahaba, the initiative dedicated to charity work, civic engagement, and community development that works through the arts. ZilZal Al Mahaba was active during this year’s Ayam Beit Shocair Festival, organizing seminars like a handicraft workshop where participants, aged between 11 and 15, from the Baqa’a refugee camp (the largest refugee camp in Jordan, located just 20 km north of Amman) learned the art of box making and packaging out of recycled papers. Together, Marlene’s two initatives are taking the arts out of high-end galleries and closed off spaces, and opening them up to creatives from all walks of life, making them an accessible and shared experience for the community.

NE Every Monday and Thursday, visitors to Beit Shocair can enjoy performances by their singer Ali Saadeh who takes listeners back to the time of Umm Kulthum!

Letter from The Go Team

School DAZE

Hey Go-Getters,

T

hat’s right, we’re back to print! Last month’s digital issue was a test to see if our readers preferred hard copies of Go Magazine, or — what with the new technological age — if you were interested in having our magazine online. In the end, old school print media won out; people still love the feel of a physical magazine in their hands. However, we can’t ignore the interest in digital copies, so Go will definitely be working towards something online in the future. Summer has come to an end, which means apart, from fall’s approach, school is back in session! So this issue of Go has been dedicated to all those returning to class. We’ve covered the basics, from where to get your school supplies to what after-school activities your kids may want to enroll to even the digital gizmos you may want to invest in for academia. Go’s also scouted out libraries in Amman that could be useful to bookworms of all ages! This month we’ve also sat down some great local teachers, like Ahmad Azban and Tony Anqoud, the creators of the Diwan Baladna book series. And we were lucky enough to sit down with HRH Prince Firas to discuss health, fitness, and next month’s Amman International Marathon. While for those of you who already lead a healthy lifestyle (or are at least trying to), we've put together a list of top nonsmoking eateries in the city. So whether you’re returning to school this month, watching your kids go back, or are simply interested in learning new things, Go’s “Back to School” issue has got you covered. Old dogs can most definitely still learn new tricks.

What’s On This Month

Need to Know

School Life

The Rumor Mill Apparently the multi-platinum selling group The Black Eyed Peas are set to perform live in Jordan. Now don’t get too excited because we’re pretty sure this is just hearsay, or even a scam, but BEPAMMAN is claiming that the famous act is performing in Petra this month. Tickets are even being sold and supposedly European groups are opening for the BEP. Boom boom pow.

From 13 to 20 September, Al Balad Theater (Yazeed Bin Abi Sufyan St., 1st Circle) will play host to the fourth Hakaya Festival, which presents “storytelling” in various forms. This year will include, traditional storytelling, mono-drama plays, visual installations, and film screenings. Log on to hakaya.org or call Al Balad Theater on (06) 465 2005.

Buzz Word

SEPTEMBER’s

Hot vs. Not Community Kids may take it for granted, but adults know that school gives you a chance to be part of a community and enjoy a joined spirit that is often lost once you enter the “real world.” School brings people together, whether for classes, sports, or theater productions, and there’s nothing quite like those shared experiences.

“dudeh”

‫دودة‬

Noun. A female dude; a dudette. Eg. “I don’t know if I can get out tonight, man.” “Come on dudeh! You’ll have fun!”

Bullies Peer pressure and bullying have always been a problem at school. However, with today’s constant connectivity and social media sites, the bullying no longer stops once you leave school grounds. This is a problem that has got to be dealt with fast as a little bullying now can lead to serious problems in the future. Self-discovery Before you can become that talented, influential, or famous person you dream of being, you’ve got to first learn who you are. School, with its many levels, classes, and disciplines, can guide you to find your passion, teaching you the required skills you need to get there.

Cliques Everyone has their group of friends but it’s important to be open to new people. Cliques often create an unhealthy and closed off mindset that will definitely work against you once schooling is over. Believe it or not, even in high school it is possible to be more than simply one thing, just keep an open mind and give it a shot!

Ahmad Azban & Tony Anqoud

Go’s Kinzi Jones sat down with Diwan Baladna’s creators Ahmad Azban and Tony Anqoud

first heard about Ahmad and Tony from my kids: “Mom, you won’t believe our new Arabic teachers! They're beefy, have ponytails, wear leather, and ride motorcycles!” I could tell Arabic class just got a lot more fun. Our family became fans of the gentle Jordanian giants who recently published their second Hajjajillustrated book, Diwan Baladna: The Spoken Arabic Dictionary. So I met up with them to find out more…

appreciation of everyone who knew about the book was a huge encouragement; knowing we would help make their transition to living in Amman easier was satisfying. It was our dream to bridge cultures and create understanding between west and east.

Go: What inspired the two of you to write your first book? Ahmad Azban & Tony Anqoud: The idea of writing the Diwan Baladna series started with a dictionary, although we published Diwan Baladna: Arab Culture from an Arab’s Perspective, first. When foreigners visit, the first thing they experience is our hospitality; that alone is a language. While another goal of the dictionary is to help Arabs learn English by simply translating from spoken Arabic rather than classical. AA: I remember teaching little culture lessons to my students. I was shocked by the huge misunderstandings of our culture they had. I can’t blame them, for how would they know my culture if they just came from another? TA: We also noted that foreigners get into embarrassing situations because of misunderstandings. Most learn Arab culture the hard way; through misinterpretation or unintended insults. Go: What was the “aha” moment that took it from vision to the first words? AA & TA: We were with our friend Tom Holts, discussing culture in Jordan. He was the first to ask us to put our notes in book form to give newcomers an understanding of our cultural cues. Go: And what encouraged you? AA & TA: The enthusiasm and

Go: What surprised you in your research? Any new discoveries? AA & TA: After researching for two years we discovered that living in our culture is one thing but explaining it is another. The process helped us learn and appreciate our culture more. For example, learning about pigeons in Jordan, and the interesting (and somewhat strange) relationship between the birds and their keeper. Go: What are your readers' reactions? AA & TA: Some of them were really amazed and others told us how much they had enjoyed our first book, even people who have been here a long time. But we were most surprised by the reaction of our Arab readers, especially with the dictionary. They were so happy to see the terms translated into English for the first time and learning the closest English term to any Arabic. King’s Academy is now using our material for their local culture class!

To purchase the Diwan Baladna series visit www. diwanbaladna.com or check out most major bookstores throughout Jordan!

Go: What’s next? AA & TA: We’re planning to open a Diwan Baladna center for learning the Arabic language and culture. It will be a one-of-a-kind place. We'll have lessons on the colloquial dialect, written classical Arabic, and our culture, including classes on how to cook Arabic food by Ahmad’s father, Kamal Azban! We're also working on the second edition of Diwan Baladna (Arabic Culture) with new topics that expand the women’s perspective and helping foreign women navigate our culture!

All Booked Out

Go’s Kinzi Jones scouted out the capital to bring us the best libraries for every sort of reader Images by: Spencer Smith

For Families:

Amman’s latest lending library, Books & More, celebrated its first anniversary in May. It was the vision of a retired American couple, Harvey and Nancy Bacus that had its roots in Prague. He was intrigued by a man who had started a library there and heard him mention other places that lacked good libraries: Berlin, Budapest, and Amman. Amman? Being lifelong educators, Harvey and Nancy were passionate about getting books in the hands of children and adults. Through an interesting coincidence, they were invited to Jordan, fell in love with the country, and did indeed see the need for a lending library. Without any previous experience in establishing a library, Harvey and Nancy began to put out word for book donations. One such inquiry led to the US book selling chain, Half Price Books, offering to donate two tons of new, hardback books. Within six years they had 10,000 titles collected and packed into a 18 | SEPT. 2011

emember when you or your family got your first computer? How amazing it was to have such a machine always at your disposal. Now clear away the nostalgic fog of that memory, and think about how bulky, expensive, and slow it was! Lacking in style or efficiency, yesteryear’s desktops, laptops, and PDAs are now the stuff of attics and jokes. As the school year begins, go-getters in the education world, whether they’re students or teachers, might be looking for an upgrade. And with electronics as cheap as they are these days, there’s never a better time to buy than now. Here are Go’s top back to school picks…

HP ProBook 4530s

Although it’s not-so-coincidentally similar in both name and look to Apple’s MacBook Pro, the ProBook is less than half the price of its competitor. That’s not to say it’s without top-notch features, though. Its Intel Core i3 processor — fast becoming the industry standard — makes the ProBook’s 2.1 GHz of processing power feel like much, much more. Pair that with 4GB of RAM and a spacious 320GB hard drive, and you’ve got a formidable computing powerhouse. Online students will enjoy the convenience of a built-in high def webcam. The added security measure of a built-in fingerprint scanner doesn’t hurt, either. Found at: PC Zone, Mecca Mall, Mecca St., (06) 556 1766 Price: 439 JOD

Apple MacBook Air (11”)

Found at: E-Mart Electronics, Sameh Mall, Madina St., (06) 550 5500 Price: 988 JOD

26 | SEPT. 2011

Just as floppy disks are now a laughably outdated format, physical media like CDs and DVDs are quickly becoming a thing of the past, making way for cloud storage and online downloads. Apple, always a company with foresight, took a bold step a few years ago with the MacBook Air: it doesn’t have a disk drive. The benefit of this is a computer that’s no bigger (or heavier) than a pad of paper! But have no doubt that the Air is powerful. Running on Apple’s brand new OSX Lion, this featherweight laptop runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, and has 64GB of flash storage.

Smoke Free!

Go’s Kinzi Jones scoped out Amman’s top restaurants to enjoy a good meal sans smoke infestation — an important factor for kids, moms-to-be, and the health conscious

D

ining out in Amman can be a tiring experience for a non-smoker. One gets tired of cigarette-smoked pepperoni, tired of nicotine aftertaste in the mint lemonade, tired of flying ash garnish on salads, tired of argeeleh smoke clinging to hair and clothes. Most of all, tired of the health-hazard that second-hand smoke. After losing both parents to smoking-related cancers, I am an anti-smoking militant. And I’m not alone. The Facebook group Jordanians Against Indoor Smoking has over 2,000 members after founder Zeina Shazada-Majali started it last year. Go asked her to poll the members to find their favorite dining establishments with a nonsmoking section. It’s not easy for restaurants to cater to the majority of their smoking clientele, yet offer an alternative for the nonsmoking minority. But five local fooderies have made the effort…

1

Kebab Express

  The casual choice for a quick bite while shopping in Sweifieh, Kebab Express prides itself in a healthy and indigenous form of fastfood — a “barbequed” Lebanese sandwich. Their decision to go “no smoking” within the premises was a continuation of their commitment to health-conscious choices in food and environment. Spotlessly clean, you can watch your food being prepared in the open kitchen while the aroma readies your taste buds for a treat. Abd Al Rahim Al Hajj Mohammad St., Sweifieh, (06) 585 1741 34 | SEPT. 2011

2

Whispers

  This popular 5th Circle restaurant has a room for nonsmokers, far from the main bar and dining area where smoke could seep in. According to management, it is frequently requested and often full, especially during weekends. The mouthwatering menu is based on the elements of life: earth, air, fire, and water, and some claim Whispers has the best salad bar in town. And the huge tank of calamari-fed baby sharks guarantee, “Wow!” first impressions for the younger diners in your party. Zahran St., 5th Circle, (06) 592 1850

ED TO KNOW NE

City Mall is Health Code #47 compliant, meaning it is an entirely smoke-free zone… most of the time.

3

La Mirabelle

  Both the Shmeisani and Abdoun locations have non-smoking sections. I visited Abdoun and was delighted with the step-down into a semi-covered patio area more like an extended private garden. Although the area for non-smokers is an open section, the large garden windows open to allow fountainfresh breezes to cleanse residual smoke. Safe for lungs, but perhaps not for waistlines, the artistry of Zalatimo sweets is linger-worthy, and they boast the cutest baby chocolate selection in town. Plenty of parking, too. Salman Al Quddah St., Abdoun, (06) 565 6026


4

Wild Jordan Café

  An entirely nonsmoking-indoor establishment, Wild Jordan Café is a rare venue of its kind in this smoke-happy country. Opened by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN), this spot is great for a healthy low-fat breakfast, lunch, or evening meal in a guaranteed smoke-free and

alcohol-free environment with great views of old Amman. Wild Jordan’s service also has a great reputation — a welcomed change to the lack of customer care in many of the city’s other eateries. Othman Bin Affan St., Jabal Amman, (06) 463 354

Image by: Alankar Rai

  This restaurant’s name means “homemade” in Italian, and Casereccio claims to be “a little bit of Italy in the heart of Amman.” Wanting to recognize the growing health concerns of second-hand smoke, the management responded to the trend by dedicating the open-air balcony to non-smokers. Casereccio provides an affordable, delicious casual dining experience and additionally wins the Parents Award for a great supervised play place, and the Kids Award for the completely cool chance to create their own pizza, with whole-wheat dough, under the watchful eye of staff. Mecca St., Um Uthaina, (079) 630 1302 SEPT. 2011 | 35

S

et to take place on 28 October, this year’s Amman International Marathon (AIM) will be the third annual event of its kind. Sponsored by Samsung, organized by the Greater Amman Municipality, and accredited by the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) and the Jordan Athletics Federation, this will be a sporting-event to remember attracting runners from all over Jordan and around the world. His Royal Highness Prince Firas Bin Ra’ad, told us more…

Amman Mayor, Omar Al Maani. who was also keen on organizing an international marathon particularly during Amman’s centennial year in 2009. And so it came about. Amman’s former Mayor Omar Al Maani, Her Royal Highness Princess Dina Mired, City Manager Ammar Al Gharaybeh, Nayef Al Fayez from the Jordan Tourism Board, Ghazi Farouk from the Neurological Society, and myself formed an entity in 2009 to begin this annual tradition. I should also say that Their Majesties King Abdallah and Queen Rania were very supportive of this Go: How did the Amman effort from the very beginning. Marathon first come about?

Registration Fees Fees are 15 JOD for Jordanians and foreigners residing in Jordan who are over 18 years old and 10 JOD for those under the age of 18. Foreigners who are 18 years and above will be charged $100, or $50 if they’re under 18 years old.

for the AIM has been made even easier! Just sign up on www.amman-marathon. com by 26 October and be ready to pick up your race packets from King Hussein Park.

If you’re not a trained marathon runner, you can still take part in this great event. The 10km fun run, which starts at Al Hussein Sports City and ends at the Roman Amphitheater, is open to runners of all sorts, whether you’re new to the sport or an expert, old or young, single or with a family. If, however, you’re a pro runner, the full 42.195km marathon will be more up to your standards. Starting from the mosque at the Greater Amman Municipality and ending at the Roman Amphitheater (following a path that loops four times), this intense run offers a great challenge to any athlete or seasoned runner, as well as a unique way to visit central Amman.


Go: And we’ve heard you’re a runner as well? HRH: I am! I ran the full marathon for the very first time in 2009 and last year I completed the 10km run — the fun run accompanying the main event. This year my legs may only allow me to enter the 10km run again. My two daughters, Safa and Haya, participated last year and I am hoping my whole family including my wife Princess Dana will participate again this year.

flatter this year with a revised and faster course certified by the international running associations. The AIM, too, is a celebration of our country’s capital city. Taken together, these events plus others have come a long way in promoting Jordan among the regional and international running circuit — and also have helped promote the culture of running and daily exercise within our country. Go: What goals does the AIM seek to promote? HRH: There are multiple goals the AIM seeks to enhance cutting across different spheres of life. First and foremost, it is an athletic event and promotes athleticism in both its competitive and recreational components among runners —female and male — in all age groups. The competitive component should contribute to the emergence of more Jordanian runners who can compete at an international and Olympic level. Already we have some exceptional runners among the ranks of the Jordanian Armed Forces and Public Security Directorate. Secondly, sports and physical exercise promote public health and this is truly important in light of the silent epidemic of non-communicable diseases in

Jordan as in elsewhere — with the growing prevalence of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Thirdly, it promotes tourism and cultural exchange more broadly and helps showcase the remarkable antiquities of Amman, not least of all, the Roman Theatre and the Amman Citadel. Fourthly, it supports charitable giving to humanitarian causes by feeding back 20% of the participation fees to NGOs that enlist runners with the support of sponsors. And lastly, AIM is a social event bringing together Jordanians and foreigners from all walks of life. Go: The AIM is open to those with disabilities as well. Can you tell us about this? HRH: From the very beginning, we wanted to make sure AIM was an inclusive sporting event and took measure to encourage our disabled athletes to participate. There were many efforts with the Jordanian Paralympic Committee to involve the largest number of wheel chair and non-wheel chair athletes over the last two years — and indeed many did participate. This particular area concerning Jordanians with special needs and providing greater opportunities to them runs deep within my family and is something to which we are very committed.

Go: Do you have advice for someone who’s going to try to run his or her first marathon? HRH: Preparation, preparation, and preparation! It is not for the ill-prepared, otherwise you may be injured or collapse along the route. It is, too, a great goal and requires a high level of discipline which can be galvanizing, particularly for young runners attempting to run it for the first time. I do hope we see a greater number of Jordanian marathon entrants with each year. Go: Would you like to leave us with any last words regarding the Amman International Marathon? HRH: I would like to appeal to all Jordanians from every governorate and town in our country to join the event and participate in either the full marathon itself or the fun run. I would also like to pay tribute to our title sponsor this year, Samsung, which has been more than generous with us this year in particular. Similarly, my gratitude goes to the Greater Amman Municipality, Zain, the Arab Bank, the Neurological Society and the security services for all the tremendous support this year. We expect the AIM 2011 on October 28 to be a special event for all! HRH Prince Firas Raad is Chairman of the Amman International Marathon and is involved in different development and health-related organizations based in Amman. He has served as Private Secretary to His Majesty for Health Affairs and is currently a Senior Health Policy Specialist in the World Bank. He now serves as Development Advisor to the Quartet Representative for the Middle East Peace Process on secondment from the World Bank. SEPT. 2011 | 41

Jumping needs in order to compete with the regional giants such as Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, which also make their mark internationally. You can see, from the concentrated faces of audience and family members at the club’s weekly Show Jumping competitions — which feature riders from all of Amman’s horse clubs — that the spirit quickly envelopes everyone who gets involved. The club is open from Tuesday through Sunday and offers a whole range of riding services, all of which can be booked by telephone a day in advance.

Nadi Al Jawad is, traffic permitting, an easy 20 minute drive from central Amman. Coming from the city, take the second right after Amman Waves on Queen Alia Airport Road and get a sniff of the fresh country air as you follow the signs to the Exit Club for another five minutes. There’s no public transport to here and taxis rarely pass by, so make sure you arrange your return ride in advance.

How to Get There

adi Al Jawad Al Arabi is Amman’s oldest horse riding club and the place to be for anyone who wants to watch or learn the sport of Show Jumping. Diana Aldaoud, the club’s 27-year-old stable manager, sums up her eight-year passion for the sport and these “magnificent animals,” which began here, when she first got onto a horse. Riding is all about connecting “with a real being” — a being that, like a person, has different characteristics and moods. Each horse has its own presence and Nadi Al Jawad has certainly seen a full range, from the “ticklish” to the “egotistical” to the “shy.” Founded in the early 80s, the club now has 96 resident horses, with the capacity for a further 50. “We have riders here of all ages,” Diana tells me, “from two to 60,” and a pony club catering especially to children under the age of six. Diana’s advice to anyone a little apprehensive about mounting the saddle for the first time? Get to know your horse: let it give you a sniff, pat it, walk around it, give it something to eat. Horse riding, she stresses, is all about mutual dependence; it’s a 50:50 relationship between the horse and its rider. Owning a horse might be something that most people can’t afford, but perfecting one’s riding skills needn’t be. Exposure, Diana says, is what Jordanian Show

ith mixed martial arts becoming more widespread throughout the region and the country, it’s no wonder that interest in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu — a key martial art for MMA fighters — has rapidly grown in recent years. The Source MMA, a fully equipped martial arts and combat sport gym in Rabia, has been expertly catering to this growing trend. Run by Tarek Kalimat, a 2nd Degree Black Belt in American Jiu-Jitsu, and Samy Al Jamal, a 3rd Dan Black Belt in Brazilian JiuJitsu (soon to be 4th — the highest rank for any Arab), those who train at The Source MMA couldn’t be in better hands. This, for instance, is the “home gym” of popular local fighters Yazan Janeb and his brother Ihab, who were both selected to compete during Amman’s Cage Warriors Fight Night. The Source MMA is so called because it values the source and origin of the art of Brazilian Jiu-

Straight Arrows The Source MMA teaches a class specifically targeted to kids called Straight Edge Fighters. It teaches children, along with learning combat and self-defense skills, to live by a code and respect the Straight Edge way of life, which means no smoking, no drinking, and no drugs. Young fighters are encouraged to stay “straight” by receiving patches of merit as they prove their abstinence and progress in the class.

Jitsu. Samy Al Jamal trained for 22 years under Master Fabricio Martins, who was a student of the great Master Oswaldo Alves, who trained with Rolls Gracie, one of the greatest fighters that ever lived and a member of the family that founded BJJ. And this is what separates The Source MMA from the country’s other gyms — it fiercely protects the origins of the martial art that is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, teaching what it claims is the purest form of this sport. Opened to kids of all ages and adults — whether male or female — this is a gym that teaches a way of life as well as combat sports. The Source MMA even offers Kick Fit, a class that transforms MMA training into a fitness regiment. So whether you’ve always been fascinated with the “Gentle Art” of BJJ or want to start the new academic year off right and healthy, join The Source MMA today and you won’t be disappointed.

The Source MMA cost about 50 – 60 JOD a month, which includes training sessions three to four times a week!

The Source MMA Al Kiswa St., Rabia (079) 564 4402 www.thesourcemma.com

Practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can improve your health, teach you discipline, and encourage you to abstain from unhealthy choices like smoking. The Source MMA will visit schools across the country to show the benefits of BJJ to our youth, giving demonstrations on the sport. And they’ll be gathering sponsors and raise money to send their female Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters to compete in international events. Having female BJJ fighters representing Jordan abroad will be a first for the Kingdom, and, currently, The Source MMA boasts the largest squad of BJJpracticing girls!

Double Take

Go’s Samer Aksoy takes a drive with Nissan’s new gamechanging Patrol

Images by: Thaer Abu Hamdeh

Pit Stop Shop   With school time approaching, I was handed a list of must-have school related items to buy. Luckily I had the Nissan with me as the list was huge and, thus, needed a big trunk. Instead of going to multiple places, I decided to make just one stop. So I headed off to William’s Bookshop (7th Circle). I browsed the store’s selection for over an hour and even bought some pens for myself, then headed out to the Nissan with a half dozen bags. With a press of a button the trunk door opened fully, and the Patrol took all the bags with ease — and I could have fit in there too! 46 | SEPT. 2011

85,000 JOD

uring one of my daily commutes, I stopped at a traffic light — sadly the traffic light itself was far away in the horizon, which meant only one thing: multiple stops. So as not to fall asleep I turned on the radio and started to look around for a means to entertain myself, but my vision was blocked by an SUV. I looked into the rear view mirror and there was another one looking right at me. It struck me how many SUVs we have in the streets of Amman and how obvious the standard choices are. The traffic light eventually turned green and it was my last stop. Then something passed me by which made me do a double take. It was an SUV all right, but not one of those standard choices. It was a towering 4x4 that looked the business and sounded very capable from the rumble it made when it drove by. When I finally had the chance to identify that 4x4, I saw that it was the 2011 Nissan Patrol. The congestion reached a point where we were not moving at all for minutes at a time. The Nissan was stuck too, and right next to me. This was my chance to take a closer look. I started to take quick side-glances at the Patrol — so as not to freak the driver out, and not to give him the satisfaction of me ogling his shiny SUV. Although big in size, the Patrol is very subtle in design; it was designed with a bigger picture in mind, such as the front lights that complement the rear lights, and the rear side windows that echo them both. The front is dominated by Nissan’s trademark grille design, but tweaked to meet the Patrol’s dimensions. I especially like the darkened A-pillars, which are a welcomed treat — they give the sense that the windshield is wrapped around the 4x4 from C-pillar to C-pillar. Pretty neat. It’s a Saturday, and I’m driving through the city again, but this time I’m not driving my own car, I’m test driving that same brand new Nissan Patrol. Lucky me! Recently added to Nissan’s local dealer roster, though this Patrol is the latest, its roots go way back to the 1950s. Each iteration has maintained the basic formula of reliability and actual off-road capability, but at the same time slightly modifying the formula in its own Nissan unique way. For this, the sixth generation, Nissan modified the Patrol formula once more, and Patrol has starting at it has added luxury. I’ll take one, please! With myself in the driving seat, it was time to sample the luxurious side of the 2011 Patrol. Dark wood and black leather interiors provide a posh contrast, giving the car’s cabin a rich texture. I felt pampered as the cooled seats worked wonders in the hot, summer weather. The dashboard is also functional as well as stylish; its design somewhat reveals the link between Nissan and Infiniti, and that’s not a bad thing at all. And for the options list, the Nissan

5 reasons to want the Nissan: 1. Spa-Level Pampering: This Nissan makes most SUVs feel prehistoric and downright crude. 2. User Friendly: Extremely accessible and very functional. 3. Off Road Capability: This 4x4 is not just a poser; it can climb sand dunes and conquer mountains. 4. Power: Nothing beats a V8 rumble. 5. Feel Good Factor: An admirable 9 out of 10.

has every possible add on you could think of — plus cup holders. Once we headed out to Amman’s suburbs the traffic eased up; it was time to see if the rumble I heard earlier was as great in effect as it was in sound. I pressed the gas pedal and the Nissan leapt forward, shifting from gear to gear without a judder. Shockingly, I was buried — snugly — in the large leather seat. From that point on the Patrol soared, soaking up any bad road and gliding through corners thanks to its Hydraulic Body Motion Control (HBMC) system. All of the above made me enjoy the Nissan tremendously; it makes use of every inch it has, which is something rare in the large SUV sector. But sadly my brief time with the Nissan Patrol was almost over and it was time to head back to the dealer. Luckily, there was a traffic jam on my return route and I had the Nissan for myself a while longer. So to entertain myself I glanced around me, and then I saw it, a double take just like the one I did. The 2011 Patrol truly exceeds the standard. SEPT. 2011 | 47

Parking Lot Races Images by: Alankar Rai

Go’s Felix Padgen-Ratcliffe checked out Park Plaza’s new go-karting spot, Raceways Karting, for an afternoon of driving fun

Karting Safety Go-karting can be a whole lot of fun, but keep these tips in mind to ensure everyone’s safety

A

mid the hustle and bustle — and the chaotic traffic — of Sweifieh sits the Park Plaza. Much of it is still under construction, while many of the upper floors are dedicated to onsite parking for customers. These large, open spaces are perfect not just for parking cars, but for go-karting too! Until now anyone wanting to indulge in a spot of racing in the city has had to travel out to the karting center on Queen Alia Airport Road — a great venue but a Raceways Karting little too far for some. Park Plaza Now Park Plaza offers the thrill Salah Shemat St., of go-karting in the center of the city. Swefieh, One half of the 5th floor parking lot (06) 581 4544 has been converted into Raceways 48 | SEPT. 2011

Karting’s center, with lines of painted tires lining the floor, demarcating the winding track. It’s not a huge race space, but it’s certainly ample for an afternoon of racing. A possible expansion could be in the pipeline too, meaning up to double the racing space. The company has 12 cars, and up to eight drivers can race at any one time. Special deals are offered too — buy four, tenminute slots (for 32 JOD) and get a fifth for free. Group bookings are possible, and again special prices (depending on the size of the group) can be arranged. Just make sure that you take your race mindset off with your helmet; don’t try anything adventurous in the traffic below on your way home!

- It doesn’t matter if you think you’re a racing legend, you should always wear a helmet. Accidents can happen! - Loose clothing and sneakers are the ideal things to wear when go-karting to ensure your comfort and ease in driving. - If your go-kart starts making unusual noises or vibrating abnormally, stop the kart and call for help. Excessive noise or vibration is generally a warning of loose or worn parts. - Double-check your kart’s tires to see if they’ve got the right amount of pressure. If they aren’t the right pressure, the go-kart can become unstable, affecting your braking and steering.

O ED T KNOW NE All

go-karting equipment is rented with the price of the race. That’s just 8 JOD for ten minutes of track time!

Located directly across from the Department of Antiquities, on Sultan Al Atrash St. in downtown Amman, Rujm Al Malfouf is a garrisoned, stone tower. The site’s ancient remnants also include several storerooms, all situated on a hilltop. The tower itself is preserved at almost 5.5 meters high, with a 22-meter diameter and three distinguishable levels still intact. And the accompanying storerooms maintain their distinct sections and crawl through doorways.

However, the more educated academics became about the styles of Roman masonry, it was discovered that the remaining shards more closely resembled the works of the Ammonites who lived during the Iron Age around the first half of the first millennium BCE. It was later conceived that while built by the Ammonites, Rujm Al Malfouf was then altered and used by the Romans and at one stage possibly the Byzantines. If you’ve got a free afternoon and want to take in Jordan’s glorious vestiges of antiquity, yet can’t make it out to Jerash or other far off sites, simply head to Amman’s downtown area to these ruins and soak in the history.

Watchtowers were traditionally constructed for protection from foreign enemies, however Rujm Al Malfouf’s construction remains a mystery as we still don’t know who the adversary was   Because the exact date of its construction is unknown, many theories have been suggested. If the fort was built in early tenth century, it’s likely the Ammonites were fighting King David of Judas, as referenced in the Bible (Samuel 12. 26-31). If the structure, however, was created closer to the first half of the ninth century, the opponent was the Kingdom of Israel. An additional rival could have been the Assyrian army if the tower was built in the late seventh or eighth century.

The Mystery Continues…

An interesting inscription was found on the Citadel in Amman, only 4 km east of Rujm Al Malfouf. It dates to the ninth century and mentions how the god Milkom ordered the construction of fortifications, adding another hypothesis of the towers origin to the mix.

Jerusalem O

ne of the foremost features of Jerusalem is that it’s historical — one can even say that Jerusalem is history. Walking in its streets and feeling its ancient atmosphere you cannot help but think about all the feet that have once stepped on these streets. Prophets, saints, crusaders, Romans, Persians, Umayyads, and more, all made the same stroll as visitors do today. Experiencing this history and all the other things that Jerusalem has to offer — the food, the shopping, the sights, the religiosity — makes visiting this city a holy delight.

You can take a taxi to the border at King Hussein Bridge and take another taxi on the other side. Or the JETT buses that depart from Abdali Station run from Amman to Jerusalem (call (06) 566 4146). Note: you can’t cross the King Hussein Bridge with your own car, however you can at the country’s other border crossings.

Getting There

The most discussed city in the world, Jerusalem is more than an element of political talks; it’s a city buzzing with life, history, and culture

     

What to Do

The Old City: Shop & Eat

The market streets of the Old City seem never-ending. Must-eats are the über apfelstrudel at the Austrian Hospice and a falafel sandwich at the Armenian Hospice. The market is basically an ancient department store of souvenirs. A must-buy in the Old City is a camel leather bag.

The Old City: Explore & See

Providing an endless supply of holy sites, the Old City is captivating. A place to visit is the beautiful Al Haram Al Sharif; it’s amazing to see with your own eyes. Another place you shouldn’t miss is the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Built on the place where Jesus was crucified, it breathes religion.

Amsterdam The fun side of going Dutch Words by: Floris Janssens-Andrejew

What better way to cool after summer than strolling along picturesque canals while enjoying a fresh Dutch breeze?

F

oremost known for its historic city center and its museums stocked with Rembrandts and Van Goghs, Amsterdam has lots more to offer. Instead of running from one hotspot to the other, you can also enjoy getting lost in Amsterdam; either by bike or by foot. All over town, you’ll be bound to walk into interesting little shops, secondhand markets, or cozy cafés. Amsterdam is also an excellent starting point to explore more destinations in or outside the Netherlands. Most other towns are reachable by train within two hours. Visit the picturesque towns of Utrecht, Delft, and Leiden, or take advantage of Europe’s open borders to take a train to the beautiful Belgian city of Antwerp.

Negen Straatjes (Nine Streets)

NDSM Werf

Vondelpark

  This area forms the western part of the ring of canals. Negen Straatjes is filled with lots of interesting shops and restaurants; for food, design, culture, and fashion this is an excellent area. Second hand shops, independent designers, and stores like Acne Studio can be found here. Located just outside this area is the photography museum FOAM, which is worth a visit. It also gives you the chance to take in the beautiful 17th century canal building in which the FOAM it is housed.

  This former industrial zone was closed down in 1984, now the wharfs and hangars have various functions. The continuing art initiatives are worth checking out and the restaurant Noorderlicht offers very tasty food and beverages. Their seasonal menu is very popular as it offers up a fresh and delicious assortment of treats. And part of the pleasure of eating at Noorderlicht is getting there; the small ferry that gets you across the river IJ will show you a completely different side of Amsterdam.

  Take advantage of your break from hectic Amman, by trying something different — transport yourself through a city by bike. The best area to gain some confidence in using this new mode of transportation is the Vondelpark. This beautiful green park is also excellent for lounging and picnicking on sunny days. Before heading out of the park to explore the city with your new found biking skills, stop by one of the cozy teahouses that the park has to offer and enjoy some brunch.

Location: Western part of the city center How to get there: Take a tram to Spui, then walk westwards for about four minutes. Must do: Try some cake or pie at patisserie Pompadour. If you have problems choosing, go for the raspberry meringue pie.

Location: T.T. Neveritaweg, Amsterdam North How to get there: From the central train station take ferry 906 in direction NDSM-werf. Must see: The sunset is beautiful in this industrial surrounding. Also keep your eyes open for the sunken submarine along the way.

Location: Oud-Zuid, where the western and southern parts of the city come together. How to get there: Tram 2 to the Van Gogh Museum, you can also find bike rental services in this area. Must do: Dine at The Blue Teahouse, a pavilion built in 1930s modernist style.

Go’s Annisa Rochadiat brings us Beit Shocair, a local art and culture hub that is celebrating the unifying power and joy of the arts

60 | SEPT. 2011


M

usic and the arts are wellknown, powerful unifying forces with the capacity to build bridges across various socioeconomic and cultural differences. Here’s an inspiring tale of a recent cultural celebration that sought to capitalize just that in bringing the community together. Hosted under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture in cooperation with community-based initiative ZilZal Al Mahaba and the Beit Shocair for Culture and Heritage, Ayam Beit Shocair (literally meaning, “Days of Shocair House”) is a two-week youth talent festival and art symposium that seeks to highlight the value of art in people’s lives. It also promotes the significance of preserving cultural heritage and encourages young people to express their innovative ideas and emotions through arts, poetry, and music. Located on #38 Khirfan St. in Jabal Amman, Beit Shocair — named after the Shocair family, former patrons of the house in the early 1900s — hosts the annual Ayam Beit Shocair Festival. Prior to becoming one of Amman’s celebrated arts and cultural hubs, Beit Shocair housed Jordan’s first public all-girls school, “Arwa Bint Al Hareth.” Today, this spot is a popular restaurant and — with its many diverse rooms, spread over multiple floors — a home for learning and teaching the arts. Held in mid-July, running under the theme of, “one love, one heart, one hand, one big family,” the Ayam Beit Shocair Festival brought home a very important message: that we are all a big family with shared dreams, life-obstacles, and geography. The event did away with socio-cultural barriers that stand in the way through the unifying power of art through various mediums. Young talented Jordanians from all walks of live showcased their talents in singing, playing musical instruments, rapping, poetry-reading, and drawing, all in the spirit of mutual love and generosity. One participant, Lubna, said the event was like a second home where the young were able to mingle with the elder and vice versa. Another participant

mentioned how he had learned the value of human relationships through the program. It was a great event for participants not only to learn from one another, but also for them to better understand their cultural heritage. The event was successful not only in celebrating youthful artistic talents, but had also served as a community-building cooperation platform between social activists and socially-conscious artists. The Under My Olive Tree social project — set up by activist Ali Dahmash — for instance, also organized an artwork exhibition of the late Palestinian cartoonist and artist, Naji Al Ali (famous for creating the character Handala), during the festival. The exhibition was aimed at raising funds to cover the tuition of underpriviledged students in Jordan. Open all year round, Beit Shoucair is a must-see for the artistically inclined. And while for this year, the Ayam Beit Shocair Festival may be over, it’s never too soon to start planning to participate in next year’s event. Additionally, if you’re interested in volunteering for the associated organization, ZilZal Al Mahaba, or want to remain up-todate with their upcoming events, contact Marlene Al Atrash Abdallah on inspirationm@yahoo.com.

  The Ayam Beit Shocair Festival is the brainchild of Beirut-based, top of the line women’s accessories designer and traditional crafts artisan, Marlene Al Atrash Abdallah. A well rounded philantropist, she is also the founder of ZilZal Al Mahaba, the initiative dedicated to charity work, civic engagement, and community development that works through the arts. ZilZal Al Mahaba was active during this year’s Ayam Beit Shocair Festival, organizing seminars like a handicraft workshop where participants, aged between 11 and 15, from the Baqa’a refugee camp (the largest refugee camp in Jordan, located just 20 km north of Amman) learned the art of box making and packaging out of recycled papers. Together, Marlene’s two initatives are taking the arts out of high-end galleries and closed off spaces, and opening them up to creatives from all walks of life, making them an accessible and shared experience for the community.

Monday and Thursday, visitors to Beit Shocair can enjoy performances by their singer Ali Saadeh who takes listeners back to the time of Umm Kulthum!

imed at fostering the spirit of volunteerism and community among youths in the Middle East, Starbucks’ Community Connections was set up three years ago across nine of its regional markets. As part of ongoing global efforts in giving back and delivering lasting positive impacts to local communities wherein they operate, Starbucks recently launched a cleanup initiative in Jordan where employees and volunteers got to work hand-in-hand to repaint the sidewalks and walls in the neighborhood of its Deir Ghbar outlet in West Amman. The Deir Ghbar Cleanup, part of the Seattle-based coffeehouse chain’s Community Connections program, was a follow-up to a similar initiative started earlier this year around its 7th Circle branch. Customers and Starbucks employees (known as “partners”) gathered to clean the streets and beautify the area. Additionally, during Ramadan, Starbucks Jordan held an Iftar for children from the Dar Al Aman center, where on top of the dinner and dance show, partners gave school supplies to the kids. According to Regional Communications & CSR Manager Rana Shaheen, Starbucks’ volunteer network has been expanding in Jordan and region-wide. “This campaign has encouraged the participation of our fellow citizens and the cooperation of our official representatives,” she added. Each month Starbucks Jordan puts together a new initiative that aims to improve a part of the local community.

Book Releases

Wunderkind Nikolai Grozni Free Press Release Date: 6 Sept.   Bulgaria in the 1980s is bleak and the Communist regime bears down on all people. In the Sofia Music School for the Gifted, 15-year-old Konstantin is a brash, brilliant, and sensitive pianist, struggling toward adulthood. Confined to the school he exults in his small rebellions — smoking, drinking, and mocking the Party. He is driven simultaneously by a desire to be the best and an urge to fail. Yet if he can master the piano — and his own self-destructiveness — it could secure his passage out of the country. Reason to go read it: This hypnotic novel gives us an urgent tragicomic glimpse behind the Iron Curtain at the very end of the Cold War, reminding us of the life-saving grace of great music.

Here Comes Trouble Michael Moore Grand Central Publishing Release Date: 13 Sept.   Moore presents 20 vignettes from his own life. One moment he’s 11 and stuck in an elevator with Bobby Kennedy, and the next he’s inside the Bitburg Cemetery with Ronald Reagan. Changing planes in Vienna, he escapes death at the hands of a terrorist. He founded his first newspaper in fourth grade, refused to be on CBS News with Walter Cronkite at 16, and was the youngest elected official in the US at 18. Before Moore became a renowned filmmaker and a thorn-in-the-side of corporations, he was just a guy who had a knack for showing up where history was being made. Reason to go read it: This is a personal, funny, and eye-opening read that should be irresistible to fans and foes alike.

Julianne Vernon spots the cars and pulls over. When Pete wakes up, several cars have stopped, but two kids and a horse are the only living left. Unless you maybe count the wagon.

What Go’s Listening to Right Now

Coffee & TV Blur 13

Boy With A Coin Iron & Wine The Shepherd’s Dog

Sonic Youth

1991: The Year Punk Broke   Sonic Youth got together in the early 80s and have since established themselves as a ground-breaking act. They’ve had many accolades, including having been praised “for redefining what a rock guitar can do.” Slated for release 6 September, this DVD is a documentary that follows the band on tour in Europe, as well as giving tribute to a number of their heroes including Nirvana. 68 | SEPT. 2011

  It’s been ten years since we had a new album from Bush and this one is the first they’ve released with a new record company. Their new producer, Bob Rock, might not be a name you’re instantly familiar with, but having produced successfully for the likes of Metallica, Aerosmith, and Bon Jovi, it could be that Bush are in better company. The title track off the album, “Afterlife,” sure suggests it — pure power rock with a grunge edge, and deep lyrics. Release Date: 13 Sept. Reason to go listen to it: Because Bush rock, and so, it seems, does Bob Rock!

Akon Stadium Universal

  When you dig into Akon’s life, you can understand why this album didn’t meet its 2010 release date! The guy owns a diamond mine, a fashion line, and has numerous TV projects, as well as having just toured with Usher. Despite his busy schedule and checkered past, there’s no doubting Akon’s talents. And you only have to check out the collaborations on this album to know it’s going to be good: tracks by David Guetta (“Life of a Superstar” rocks!); a duet with Nicole Scherzinger and, of course, Pitbull had to be there. Release Date: 13 Sept. Reason to go listen to it: Because, as well as, Akon, just about everyone else you like is on it!

Dream Theater A Dramatic Turn of Events Roadrunner

Bjork Biophilia One Little Indian

  Biophilia is a term suggesting that their may be a bond between ourselves and other living things, which explains why this record is being released bit by bit in a number of different formats. As Bjork describes it, it’s more than an album, it’s a multi-media project that covers music, apps, the Internet, installations, and live shows. Bjork’s seventh full length album promises to be packed with trippy electronic and vocal tracks, highlighting how this artist has always managed to steer away from the musical norm. Release Date: 27 Sept. Reason to go listen to it: Because sometimes you just have to step outside your musical comfort zone!

Bush The Sea of Memories Zuma Rock Records

Promises, Promises Incubus If Not Now, When?

3-Legged Workhorse This Will Destroy You This Will Destroy You

Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff Deadmau5 For Lack of a ... Name

  Now if you’re a lyrics freak like me and like your music sprinkled with a bit of nostalgia, you have to check this out. Dream Theater have been around since 1985 and got together in high-school, but they went on to become musical masters — every one of them is considered an expert at his craft. Like, John Petrucci, who was named the number two metal guitarist of all time! Anyone who loves music, regardless of genre, will be blown away by this record and the first single, “On The Backs Of Angels,” with its sheer musical beauty, is impossible not to enjoy. Release Date: 13 Sept. Reason to go listen to it: Because you’ve got to appreciate genius.

Tori Amos Night of Hunters Deutsche Grammophon

  This is Tori Amos’ 12th studio album and is going to be her first one recorded acoustically and released through a classical music label. She describes this as a concept-album that spans musical styles from over 400 years. A 21st century take on renowned composers such as Bach, Chopin, and Schubert, this album promises to boast a unique sound that will appeal to listeners of contemporary as well as classical music. Critics’ responses are already positive with one source saying it’s the best album Amos has released in a long time. Release Date: 20 Sept. Reason to go listen: Because Tori Amos is truly a fantastic artist and this album will be a genre changer.

HanA Malhas

Log on to our Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/ GoMagJordan to read the whole interview with Hana Malhas!

Go’s Ramzi Ghurani chats with Hana Malhas, Jordan’s own soulful folk-rock artist Go: When did you start on your career and how’d you get into it? Hana Malhas: Does being an orchestra geek as a teenager count? Seriously though, music has always been there in my life. But I’ve been a solo singer-songwriter since 2008. Things I wanted to express to myself (and to whoever wanted to listen) just came out in song. Also, I was fascinated by the impact that live music had on me. I, slowly, realized I wanted to experience both sides of that energy exchange. Go: Which artists had the most influence on you? HM: Tough question because how do you determine influence? I have a three-part answer: 1) If it’s what I turn to most on my iPod these days, it’s Sia, Asmahan, Adele, Bon Iver, Feist, Brandi Carlile, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Ray LaMontagne, Emel Mathlouthi, and Fink. 2) If it’s who’s influenced my approach to music as a lifestyle, then it’s all the artists that I’ve shared stages and collaborated with. Nothing beats learning from each other! 3) If it’s

Pink Floyd

I also really like that there’s diversity — we’re not all doing the same thing. I like to call my music “borderless indie,” because that’s what I feel it really is. And even though there isn’t enough community support for local musicians, we’re creating spaces for ourselves, inviting people in. There’s still a long way to go with exposure and infrastructure, but it’s growing.

what I listened to growing up, then it’s Cat Stevens, Elton John, Beatles, Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, early Jewel, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Guns n’ Roses, Bon Jovi, Bee Gees, and Simon & Garfunkel. Go: What inspires you? HM: A voice (human or instrument) that expresses honest emotion through music — they usually carry the most potent life messages. Go: What’s your opinion on the music scene in this region? HM: It’s still in its infancy but Arab artists have so much to offer. We are pretty unique in our blends, whether it’s in music genre, languages used in music, lyrical content, or vocal styling and instrumentation. There is a strong political Scan Here undercurrent in the content of Arab for Website indie music, especially now, and musicians are breaking free of conforming. The daring sense of urgency and change is seeping into the music we make, which makes www. for such honest representation (and hanamalhas. com also a lot of social commentary).

The Dark Side Of The Moon – Immersive Edition In 1971, Pink Floyd couldn’t have imagined the success and admiration that this was going to get them just two years later, but when they took The Dark Side Of The Moon on tour, there was no turning back. This box set, to be released on 27 September, features rare and unreleased material, as well as original photographs not seen before. This is true musical history that you’ll love.

Go: What does your future hold? HM: Sun and chocolate cakes I hope. Also, I’m finally working a second album! I love the new sounds; I feel like I have more purpose, kind of like going back to school as an adult — you actually appreciate what you’re getting out of it. I’ve got a few shows lined up for the fall, and we’re finally going to start a music video project, but the focus is recording the new sounds. Go: Any last words? HM: Buy a ticket for my show in Amman on 10 September with Mashrou’ Leila at the Citadel. We’re pretty excited!

Mean Girls (2004) Director: Mark Waters Cast: Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams Cady is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she falls for the ex of alpha Plastic, Regina George. Why? It’s no secret that high school girls can be terrible, but this movie shows what truly prevails in the end. Ferris Bueller›s Day Off (1986) Director: John Hughes Cast: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara A high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite of what the principal thinks of that. Why? This is a classic caricature of school life, that’s applicable to even today’s classrooms.

Hey DJ! Go sat down with SPIN Jordan 94.1’s DJ Exoda to discuss all things music related Go: How long have you been a radio DJ for? And how did you get into it? DJ Exoda: I’ve been a radio DJ for almost two years. I got into it after seeing how people reacted to a great act; it blew me away. As complex as people can be with their thoughts and differences, music seems to capture everyone at the same time. It’s magical and can’t quite be explained in words, so that in general got my interest, but I’ve been in the field for eight years in total. Go: What is your opinion on the music scene here in Jordan? DJ E: The scene is definitely there but it’s far from where it needs to be. People seem to be focused on trends, so they forget to broaden their horizons and experience new sounds and genres. There are great producers and DJs like Khaled Nimry, AVIDBOLD, Hasan H, Kalice, Flava, Shuks, Voinic, Ameed, and many more, who I believe in. But, we lack quality listeners. Plus, I hate that personalities are connected to music! If an artist is playing good music then his personality or connections should have nothing to do with it. Also, the nightlife in Amman has been decreasing to a minimum because of ridiculous club policies and poor organization. Though, I have to give a special thanks to BLUE WAVES for supporting the local talents and the music scene here in Jordan.

Name 5 tracks you’re currently listening to Scan Here for facebook

Go: What do you think of this “Auto-Tune” phenomenon? DJ E: Good question. Music production is limitless so whatever different sound is added on to tracks, whether it’s the Auto-Tune or any other sound effect, it’s still unique. As for myself, SPIN Jordan 94.1 I prefer the natural tone of voice because it Airtimes: Thursdays, delivers raw feeling. 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Radio News

Go: What do you think about the free downloading of music from applications like LimeWire, eMule, and BitTorrent? DJ E: Music is for everyone and everyone Go: What kind of music do you mostly listen should have the chance to download, share, and listen, but after seeing MTV cribs, I wonder to during your downtime? DJ E: I like melodic music. Progressive house is how artists make money! As for peer-to-peer my favorite genre as it can transfer from dark to sharing software, it’s no different than people in a common room sharing music. happy, heavy, and groovy.

Go: Which singer/band/DJ would you love to see perform live here in the Kingdom? DJ E: Sasha, Gui Boratto, Pryda, and Massive Attack! While for a singer, I’d love to see Sophie Ellis-Bextor live. As far as bands go, I like classic rock so maybe if you could revive Jimi Hendrix or The Beatles then I’d go.

Go: What got you into the blogosphere? KJ: I had complained to an American Christian news magazine about some of their advertisers’ slanted view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
