wait why can’t we have a lahmajun meetup in LA too? stop stealing the fun ones, hayastan!


Evans, you had been meeting Alina, long before I was so you better not be talking about fun stealing.

It’s almost 3 am here and I’m craving Zankoo chicken. Damn you Evans!

chotai:

A very well known folk song (kind of a chant, kind of a call and response) sung in Armenian and Kurdish. It’s six minutes but listen to the whole thing—the Kurdish singing comes in around minute four, followed by a coolass folky (almost jazzy) clarinet bit, and then at minute five it gets way dope.

"Leave it to Armenians to fight a war topless while smoking a cigarette. Photo from Abkhazia, early 90s." (x)

chotai There is a large Armenian population in Abkhazia, they were defending their homes. They’re the second largest ethnic group there, after the Abkhaz. About 20% of the population. 
During the 1992–1993 War in Abkhazia most of the Armenians[3] remained neutral for a long time, but as Georgian attacks on their settlements increased, they increasingly opted to support Abkhazians[4][5][6] and many fought on their side. Armenians made up a quarter of the Abkhaz army; twenty Armenians were awarded the title of Abkhazian Hero and 242 were killed in battle. Armenian population declined after the war as many Armenians left the country (mainly for Russia and Armenia) due to the economic hardships.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenians_in_Abkhazia

Jijil to those that are not in the Motherland at the moment. No one else is coming as far as I know and grig-yan is leaving at the end of the month, so we only have limited time for maximum tambal attendance.

I got a message today from Sergey of ArmComedy that if I wanted to prove that I’m not a fake (because I don’t post pictures of myself online) I should come and see him at the a Station pub.

Naturally I asked, if we will be taking selfies and he said yes. Printed my profile picture on an A4 and showed up at the pub. Had my ID verified and took my first ever selfie. Then we drank copious amounts of beer and went home.
