Two great songs stuck in my head this morning.

today it’s really a sunday

Posted in Mashrou3 Leila, music, videos, works by ladybug on September 4, 2011

Today is a Sunday.

I have mixed feelings about Sundays.

I like to think I can be productive on a Sunday. I always have these plans of renting a bicycle to stroll around town or go up to the Shouf region and walk in the cedars forest; but I always end up waking up late, crawling all day between a mattress and the other, in a heavy molluscous way.

As it’s one of my first posts, I will please your eyes and your ears with this video clip of the great band Mashrou3 Leila. I edited and co-directed it with Yelostudio a bit more than a year ago.
