Well I just finished reading your so-called review of the Googoosh concert
in New York and I must say I am quite dismayed by what I have read ["Baptized
in tears"]. No wonder critics are hated even more than what they
criticize. Where do you get off judging all the aspects of Googoosh's
I went to the concert in Toronto and it was great: Music, sound., atmosphere
and most of all Googoosh. And no, she did not forget any parts of her songs
and she was on top of her trait, even after 20 years of silence.
Are you a sound and light expert? Do you know the enormous undertaking
for a show of this caliber that is also comparable to the concerts of Pink
Floyd or such? How many Concerts have you put on and how many of them
have been so successful that you criticize this one so harshly!
I bet the answer to the last two question is a flat: NONE! Then maybe
you should be thankful that they provided you at least with such a show
that NONE OF US ever thought that we ever would see.
The only aspect that you were right about was our oneness - being one
people from one place and that is IRAN! Too bad that you decided to leave
that as an unimportant thing in the last paragraph of your so called: "MAGHAALEH".
Well to me, it was more of a "MALAAGHEH"! If you get my meaning!
Maybe next time you research the background of the material that you
are writing a bit more in-depth. What am I talking about? Just the sheer
fact that you are a member of AOL speaks for itself. Maybe you would like
to research the background of the Acronym AOL, and trust me it does not
stand for America Online.
