As the World Turns, so does the days of our lives in iraniandotcom.  That puts our Editor, Jahanshah Javid, on the other side of the world.  Just in case you don't believe he is on the other side of the world, because Iranians love to argue about everything, just look at this picture of him in Spain.

Bold and Beautiful, the ever so Beautiful Sayeh Hassan Boldly declared that Akbar Ganji is a former torturer, and if that was not enough she also Boldly substituted "Islamic Republic" with "Islamic Regime" in her translation of what Mousavi had said, out of context.  And if that was not enough she also Boldly declared that there was no difference between hardliners and Reformists in Iran, and if you don't know what that means, it means there is no difference between Ahmadinejad and Mousavi, and there is no difference between Khamenei and Khatami, and so on.  Meanwhile Daruis Kadivar posted a link to one the most beautiful article ever written in support of people within dictatorial regimes who have been disillusioned with the system that they had helped create and then lived the rest of their lives to change it, Prisoner of Conscience.

General Hospital, it's been reported that Traneh Mousavi was brought to Imam Khomeini's Hospital in Kraj before she was removed from there and her burned body was later found in Ghazvin.

Sex and the City, Shana Yazdi paid to have sex with a man in the City of Tehran, but her lover is not a whore, or maybe he is, because she paid for him, but he paid for her too, maybe both of them are whores, or none of them are whores, or maybe one of them is, and the other one isn't.  I know it's very confusing but this latest episode clearly shows that the Islamic Republic of Iran IS reformable.

All My Children, the topic of this Soap Opera was, 'in what capacity Nada Soltan was a child of Iran?'  Was she a Martyr, a hero, a symbol, an icon, what the difference does it make, a murder victim, nothing at all, or to each her own?  Robin Goldsmith wrote one of the best bridge-building comments ever written.

Guiding Light, if you're lost and and don't know how to go about toppling the IRI regime there is a good reason, you skipped over mansours' only article ever written for this site, yet he is worried about his reputation, hence using an anonymous name, containing instructions on how to liberate our beloved Iran.  Here is a summary of it; blah blah blah bomb bomb bomb Iran bomb bomb Iran.  It's regrettable that some people will die, blah blah blah bomb bomb bomb Iran.

Shame on you MPD, shame!

It is articles like these that torture us with non-stop laughter. I was all ready to write a serious article about something really serious; now I keep cracking up! Why are you against freedom of speech and democracy?

Multiple Personality Disorder

Well Q, you asked

by Multiple Personality Disorder on

The answer to your question depends on what show you want to get into, but unfortunately the stars are All My Children and General Hospital are both dead, so you can’t get on those shows.  I know, I know that was disgusting humor, but Iran’s whole situation seems like a tragic comedy, like so many have said before, we don’t know whether to cry or laugh.  I mean in temporary history, what country in the world has prosecuted its former Vice President in his pajamas!

But anyway, I think the best soap opera to get into right now is Sex in the City, that is if you have the cash and can travel to Tehran.

I wouldn’t recommend Guiding Light, you know, you might get blown away during the act.

But if you like sex in the shade I recommend the star of Bold and Beautiful, because what else, she is bold and beautiful.

But last but not the least, according to JJ himself “Gerdoo Joon, Party Bazi is an Iranian tradition…you gotta sleep with me (him in Spain, not me).”



who does one have to sleep with

to get on the soap opera around here?

rosie is roxy is roshan

I mean ANYONE /. It IS a soap opera..

by rosie is roxy is roshan on



It is a soap opera. It's a movie. And people keep writing it and watching it as they go along. On and offsite. Through a movie screen. With almost no real human contact. For a few weeks it was a real action movie and people actually got bit parts as extras. Some almost got bigger parts. Then the action movie ended and now there's a sequel and it's slow. So people are back to writing and watching the movie on the flat screen without taking part. The movie is called Iran My Way. And people write and watch it, all the time arguing about the price of popcorn.

When you say "...if you have any problems with me...", you don't mean me personally?  You mean if ANYONE has a problem with...?  Don't you?  Because I don't have any problem with you.  I think highly of you.


Good One!

Thank you MPD

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

for including me, and with my birth name. Yes it is true, my name is Robin Goldsmith. That's the name I normally use. For writings for publication I include my middle name Jayne. I like to be called Roxane informally. Here I like Rosie too.

My basic comment to this blog is that if you have any problems with me, or suspect I am having a problem, or want me to help you with a problem, any problem, related to things going on on this site, this is my e-mail: I will gladly give you my phone number. Problems that could be solved in five minutes by phone, or at least progress made, will take 50 minutes, 5 hours, often never onsite. Because more misunderstandings of language pop up, others pop in, bla bla bla.

This medium has revolutionized communication, the I'net, but it is new and it is clumsy in its infancy. So it breeds misunderstandings and hate, then people get comfortable with that out of habit.

If attempts are not made to push out the envelope of the medium in a humanizing way (such as let's take this disagreement to the chatroom, or so & so, YOU specifically, could you mediate between us?) or better still BEYOND the medium itself, like could we take it to the telephone, this is nothing but an ever-growing box of hate.

I am sick of it and I refuse to participate in Hate anymore. Here it grows like a tree. If I can't change myself and help others to change too, I have no interest in staying here. I did not come here to be in a soap opera, or to lose every day more and more of my humanity and dignity and feel every day more and more hurt, and watch others fall victim to the same thing, sometimes even because of me.. No I did not come here for that.

Did you?

Great blog! It made me realize how much I've missed in just a few days! But the only cool thing I saw was JJ's picture! The light and the posture very puzzling. 

Thank you for being so original! Azarin
