"Is this a dream?"

Thomas (Tommy-Tom) Verrette’s feature film, I Am The Bluebird, is premiering tonight in Atlanta, hosted by the Atlanta Film Festival!  If you guys don’t know who Tom is, he’s a co-writer of the Arab in America feature screenplay!  So if you’re in Atlanta or in St. Petersburg, FL – you can watch I Am The Bluebird!  Colin and I have been watching cuts of this film since 2007, and I can be completely honest with you when I say that it’s really fantastic.  Check out the Atlanta Film Festival & the Sunscreen Film Festival’s websites for ticketing info and directions.  Also, don’t forget to check out!

Arab in America: Facebooked & Twittered

// April 16th, 2009 // No Comments » // Everything Else, Making Arab

Can’t check the blog everyday?  Tired of going to external sources to get updates on your favorite film?  Typing everyday giving you carpal tunnel?  Well, we have some news for you!  Arab in America is now on Twitter and Facebook!  Now you don’t have to leave your favorite social networking site to see all the updates and news that’s placed on the blog!  Exciting, huh?!?  Okay, maybe I’m hyping this up a little, but it’s still pretty cool.  Enjoying all of the Arab in America goodness on social networking sites is awesome and super convenient!  –  Unless you’re on Myspace, though…  cause Myspace sucks…  and makes my eyes bleed.  (we actually haven’t gotten around to making a Myspace page – coming soon)

Al Qaeda and Obama

// November 20th, 2008 // No Comments » // Everything Else, Making Arab

They Love Obama

They Love Obama

The Huffington Post has an interesting article by Ilan Goldenberg analyzing what the latest Al Qaeda message means and why it was released.  If you haven’t had a chance to read or watch the latest Al Qaeda broadcast, let me tell you, it’s a doozie… (to give you an idea, Ayman al-Zawahri calls Obama a “House Negro” and then goes on to invoke Malcom X.  I don’t know if anyone happened to forward al-Zawahri the memo, but using terms like “House Negro” usually incites backlash…  especially if you’re not black, yourself).

Anyway, the article pretty much makes the argument that Al Qaeda is releasing this particular message out of fear that an Obama presidency has already started to change global perception of the United States and that the shift will no longer fuel the flames of Al Qaeda’s war against the West.
