Social justice, arts and politics, life in New York City

Automechanic & Artist

I’m on an erratic sleep schedule these days. Five hours last night, teaching all day, a two-hour nap and now I’m wide awake. Reminds me of that Conor Oberst album, “I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning.” Except it’s 10:30 at night.

An amazing YouTube video that came to my attention. This video (no dialogue, just the artist’s singing and images) is of an Iranian American man named Mahmood Rezaei-Kamalabad, who I’d heard of before but was recognized in the Phoenix Best of last week. Not only because he’s an automechanic, but because his art and beliefs are integrated into every part of his life.
