I always feel badly when I forget the name of our shadow senator. I vow to remember it, and then I forget it again. Like right now, I can't remember it, even though I just voted and surely his name was on the ballot somewhere (I, uh, skipped a bunch of parts).

From the City Paper election guide:

For shadow senator, the choice is between Paul Strauss, who’s had the job for 17 years and been arrested twice, or Pete Ross, who’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars campaigning for the post and once served three months in a halfway house for tax evasion.

However, I have seen the future...

But having brought restaurants to both 14th Street and Rosslyn, Asadoorian now seems to be rooting for the underdog. “If I was a restaurateur, I wouldn’t go to 14th Street. There’s too many restaurants and the pie is not that big, and the rents are high. Go to Rosslyn. There’s no restaurants, and the pie is huge.”

This article focusses mainly on the new Heavy Seas Alehouse, which is a bar. http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/youngandhungry/2014/03/19/is-rosslyn-on-the-verge-of-having-a-dining-scene/

I saw the DJ Adrian Loving Fade 2 Grey androgyny exhibit at the Anacostia Arts Center Saturday. Just one little room with a few video screens on the wall, and some vinyl record covers. A good guy, but I found the video art a tad underwhelming.

I was more impressed by the Ubuhle Women: Beadwork and the Art of Independence exhibit at the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum.

Ndwango (means "cloth") is a new form of bead art developed by a community of women living and working together in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The Ubuhle (means "beautiful") artists' community was established in 1999 by local resident Bev Gibson and master beader Ntombephi Ntombela [En-Tom-be-Fi En-tom-bell-la] to empower local women with the means to provide for their families through their art. The flat surface of the textile onto which the Ubuhle women bead is reminiscent of the Xhosa headscarves and skirts that many of them grew up wearing.

Jason Hamacher who has drummed in various DC bands went to Syria from 2005 to 2010 (before the fighting) and photographed ancient buildings, a synagogue & churches plus people and he recorded Syrian tranditional chant singers. He is exhibiting his photos (and the singing is heard) at Convergence church on Quaker Lane in Alexandria, near Fairlington/Arlington. Its only there for a little while longer -Wednesday through Sat. 10 am to 5. Metrobus accessible. If you can make it you should go. I was impressed (some of the pics are more interesting for who he photographed rather than his technique, but his technique/style is pretty good too).

From 2005-2010, Jason was granted unprecedented access to the Syrian city of Aleppo. He went to document ancient religious traditions and, inadvertently, captured the apex of Syria’s modernization before the eruption of civil war. Many of the people and places that appear in this exhibit have passed on, vanished, or been destroyed.
LOST ORIGIN SOUND SERIES -
Jason Hamacher created the Lost Origin Sound Series to introduce and share his archive of cultural relics with the world. Over the course of his travels, Hamacher was fortunate to record several albums worth of sacred music which are being released as a multi-volume series, Sacred Voices of Syria, showcasing ancient Sufi, Armenian, Syriac, and Assyrian musical traditions. The first album, “Ancient Sufi Invocations and Forgotten Songs from Aleppo” debuts on vinyl April 19 and CD & Digital May 6th.

Hi DCilxors. I am really, really, really looking forward to returning to DC for keeps on May 2. I have spent really, really, really too much time in suburban Houston and Birmingham. I really, really, really need to GTFO of the deep south.

Sooooooo I haven't actually lived in DC for just over a year, and need to get back in to the swing of things in town. What are your daily/weekly must-reads? I'll get the WaPo delivered because I am old-school like that, and the City Paper on Thursdays, and my beloved Northwest Current, but what else? PoP? DCist? Other stuff?

My school/internship schedule will leave me with more time than usual to Do Shit in DC, and I plan to take full advantage while I can.

Also: any DC apps I need on my iPhone?

Thanking u and looking forward to catching up soon.

Welcome back -- I still get the Post, too, but it has fallen off in recent years. Curmudgeon's shows list (referenced on this thread or Capital Swamp) is good, too -- I get hip to a lot of stuff checking these and the occasional website (mostly to see what films are playing at the museums). PoP is still the guide to clueless DC gentrification (National Zoo shooting thread comments are today's egregious example). Only DC app I found useful is the Metro one -- there is also a bus one that is/was good.
