Thursday Foreignotica XXV

Last week’s song were Indian. Here are a few traditional Pakistani songs.

The first is called Luddi Hey Jamalo. I have no idea what it means, but rumor has it that it’s Sindhi or something. It’s sung at dholkis and sometimes even at mehndis.

This clip can also tell you something about the high quality of Pakistani videos.

[Length = 5:27; relevant portion = 0:51-5:27]

The second one is in Panjabi called “Nach Panjaban” (Dance, Panjabi Woman). It’s often played at mehndis.

[Length = 4:29]

The third is called “Balle Balle Ne Tor Panjaban Di“. It’s in Panjabi and I have no idea what it means. It’s often sung at dholkis.

[Length = 5:38]

  1. This poat smells of exotic herbs and spices.

  2. Oh, sorry, Musi. I ‘ll put my up later then.

  3. thanks clintbird.

    did everyone freaking go to bed?

  4. *disappointed kids* Aw, they’re just humping.

    I’m telling you, Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom can get pretty racy sometimes.

  5. Jeebus, commercials in a row with Roseanne and then Whoopi. Yeesh.

  6. Geoff, glad you are back commenting – you bring teh funneh, I don’t care what they all say about you. And btw, are you getting electrocuted in your avatar pic, or smoking crack? Please share.

  7. OMG!! doc is NEVER freaking going to answer my goats questions is he?

  8. I’ve started watching some of the classic westerns as they appear on cable tv. Today I watched Hombre for the first time in decades. Loved it.

    Hows come they make hardly any westerns any more? They were great.

  9. hhhhmmmmph!

  10. What is this place? Some kind of goat roping thingee? Sure seems like to me.

  11. possibly the greatest achievement of human civilization

    Bacon would beg to differ.

  12. Ricard Boone (me) was the main villian in Hombre in case you forgot.

  13. Lindsey’s looking scary. click on her pic

  14. The greatest achievement in human history, eh? Clearly, it was … ghost poopies!

    You do the deed, and waste no tp. You know that’s true, don’t you!

  15. Miss Lohan is one messed up little puppy.

  16. However, she does have great bewbies … so there’s that.

  17. Lindsey’s looking scary. click on her pic

    I’ve never really understood the appeal. And that was before she needed multiple trips to rehab.

  18. seriously, why does doc tease me like this?

  19. I’ve never really understood the appeal. And that was before she needed multiple trips to rehab.

    and that is why you have my undying love

  20. Peej, Mr. L has found the solution to your dryer buzz, but I need your email address.

  21. Does this look like something Hostages would go for?

  23. Hello, miss peeej. I believe I answered your goat question when you axed me last week (weekend mebbe?) I didn’t want to have to humiliate you with this information because I happen to think your eyeball is very hawt.

    oh. ok.

    hhhhmmmph.
    well, I guess I’ll scan through the comments to find it. 😉

  28. the first thanks was to lipstick

    but thanks to you too doc!

  30. and that is why you have my undying love

    Thanks, but I can’t afford child support.

    Also, keep missing the meatups. It’s much easier to love me from afar.

  31. Wire Palladin.

    I expect you are too young to remember.

    Never seen an episode, but I do know about the “Have Gun, Will Travel” thing. I’m surprisingly old for my age.

  32. I think your goats should do fine. I would check in on ‘em to make sure everything looks good. I would think raising kids in your climate should be easy. Round these parts they are born the tail end of winter and need shelter. I would see if there is a small ruminant “group” or possibly a vet to recommend a parasite prevention schedule and recommended vaccines – goats don’t get the autism.

    sweet! One more question. Do you think they could be trained to open beer bottles for me?

  33. No, but they do make lovely footrests and can be trained to nibble the corns and bunyons off yer feet.

  34. *pushes sean aside
    *flutters eyeball at doc

    So doc, you wanna see my goatse?

  35. er, I meant goats? Stupid autocorrect

    Who installed that here?

  36. How do they know when to stop eating? I don’t have any goats, but if I did, I’d like to keep all my toes.

  37. Sent you an email Peej. heh, my husband was “you’re pimping me out?” “yeah, but she’s really nice”

    He was kidding but it was funny and gave him an opportunity to request something in return. Goodnight all!

  38. I think they stop when it gets too crunchy. They have a hard time when I give them whole carrots. They like them bite sized…………if they bite you with their front teeth, it doesn’t hurt…..but do NOT let them get your finger to the back of their mouths. Yikes. Also, never get them wet and don’t feed them after midnight.

    ok, now I reaaaaaaaaally have to study.

  39. *pushes sean aside

    Fine. To heck with you and your stinky goats.

    *flutters eyeball at doc

    You know, eyelashes would be a bit more beguiling. What you did there is kind of disgusting.

    So doc, you wanna see my goatse?

    RUN, DOC!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!

  40. YAY! Thanks lipstick!

    Give your hubby a big fat wet ole pj kiss for me

  41. You know, eyelashes would be a bit more beguiling. What you did there is kind of disgusting.

    sean, I’m not worried one bit that you were also in GATE. You are one funny mother fucker.

    *flutters cheek at sean
    Well, it’s actually a muscle spasm, but who’s paying attention, right?

    Damn I don’t wanna study

  42. sean, I’m not worried one bit that you were also in GATE. You are one funny mother fucker.

    Comedy doesn’t exactly pay well. I make all these jokes here for free, you know.

    Man, I hate Jim Treacher. That dirty bastid.

    (Not really.)

  43. fuck four am, in the squeak hole, sideways, with a fresh mickey mouse clock

  44. Good morning UF. 4am blows, but 6am sucks.

  45. Wakey wakey.

  46. So there’s a house in Summerfield Twp that I found the other day when I shouldn’t have been looking. Showed it to the wife, she liked it, but now we’re fighting about whether now is the right time to move. We have the AA house to sell, which needs work before it can be shown, and I’d probably spend all of April’s free time doing it. Then there’s the “what if it doesn’t sell?” factor. Also the “what if we move and she still complains all the time?” factor. Ugh.

  47. Cute house. One care garage.

    Personally – I’d sell my house first unless I could swing (for a LONG TIME) two mortgages.

  48. More importantly, how far is it from Lapeer?

    You have taken this into consideration, right?

  49. 1hr, 38 min from Lapeer. I can afford both mortgages for as long as I’m employed, assuming long as the wife keeps working to support her horse habit (which should get cheaper if we’re able to move the horse to our land) and other expenses.

  50. And selling our house first means selling it with all our crap in it. AFTER having kept it clean for months on end, and with our pets in it, two of which occasionally poop on the basement floor.

  51. two of which => two of whom

  52. Leon’s basement?
    http://tinyurl.com/4oy43dj/

  53. It’s in much better shape than that. Just a lot of little things that are easy enough to live with, but would discourage a buyer with lots of options.

  54. “Leon’s basement?”

    You can expect that when you have a horse habit.

  55. Gimme an L
    gimme an E gimme an O
    ahh fuckit stick with L

  56. Oh goody, 3 to 5″ of snow incoming. I believe that will put us over the record for snowiest February ever.

  60. We are in line for a couple inches, as well. Is this the front end of what you are expecting in MI? We are supposed to see it this afternoon.

  61. I would think that 13 acres + horse habit > horse off premise. Those things are expensive!

  62. They still let women dance in Pakistan?

  63. Beasn, sure they dance sheesh

  65. Quote of the day :

    “President Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like General MacArthur by comparison.”

  66. I like:

    “It is hugely embarrassing when even the French are doing more to confront a murderous dictator than the traditional leader of the free world.”

    From the same article.

  67. Rumsfeld keeps rolling up journalists in the wake of his book tour:

    Big Journalism: CNN’s Crowley Learns That Secretary Rumsfeld Is Also A Myth Buster

    Pretty soon no one is gonna want to talk to Rummy, anymore. At least in the MBM.

    Rummy will never be on Mythbusters. Adam and Jamie are Obots. Can’t even watch the show, any more.

  68. Quick! Somebody wish me a Happy Birthday so I can tell you to kiss my ass.

  69. I bet those guys on Sons of Guns aren’t Obots.

  70. It got to the 80s here yesterday. THANK YOU LORD!!!

    Soon as it warms up (no, low 80s is not warm for me), I’m switching to skirts and dresses. I think they will be more comfortable than pants while I’m PG.

  71. Happy Birthday Herr!

  72. Congratulations on completing another revolution around the sun, Herr. You made it look easy.

  73. Happy Birthday, Herr!

  74. I was thinking this morning that a 41 year old man should not be feeding a two week old baby at 4:30.

  75. No, no he shouldn’t Herr.

  82. Can someone please explain the left’s obsession with “The Koch Brothers”? I can not understand how 2 people can control the entire right wing apparatus with the aplomb of George Soros.

    How have these guys managed to stay underground for so long?

  83. They’re sneaky J’ames. And leftoids are really really stupid.

  84. Happy Birthday, Herr!

  85. Soros really has done these things. He’s done it in other countries, now he’s doing it here. He’s admitted it, Beck has played him saying so. Do I believe it? Up to a point, but no one is that powerful here, because the individual plays a much bigger role in America. But that’s something that the left is trying to change, isn’t it?

    Ann Coulter really was correct, and I believe Rush has said the same thing: if you want to know what the left is really doing, just look at what they accuse the right of being guilty of.

    Frickin’ Shep Smith, getting me pissed. Makes me more pissed at him, since I don’t even watch that douchenozzle. Protein Wisdom: Fox’s Shep Smith: Pretending Wisconsin Is About A Fiscal Crisis Is ‘Malarkey’ Missed it yesterday, but wow. What an ass!

  86. OMG, this song just came on my iTunes (random) and it just makes me all happy.

    We’re so totally fucked, but for a moment …

  87. I think they will be more comfortable than pants while I’m PG.

    Peel, I order you to quit impersonating me immedietly. Trust me, this is for your own good.

  88. Heh, I thought that too, when I read it, PG.

  89. OMG, WTF

    I don’t get it.

  90. holy heck! It’s SHIM!!! How are you?!?!?!

  91. Hey PJ, how are you? We don’t cross paths much anymore. I’ve been working the early shift on the East Coast on this POS blog.

  92. She’s an artist Lauraw.

  93. HOWDY! MJ

    now I have to freaking go to work.

    stupid gas prices

  94. You could almost see Lady Gaga’s nutsack in that picture.

  95. She’s an artist Lauraw.

    She’s a phony who copies Madonna. Whatever. I’m sure my barbs wound her pride while she’s in her bathtub full of hundred dollar bills and gold dust.

  96. OMG, I’m gonna kill my 9 y/o.

  97. Ok, bye PJ.

  98. She’s an artist Lauraw.

    She’s a phony who copies Madonna. Whatever. I’m sure my barbs wound her pride while she’s in her bathtub full of hundred dollar bills and gold dust.

    Well, I didn’t like Madonna either, so that’s where I’m coming from.

    But then, I tend to like music and artists that could play, write, or actually sing music.

  99. Someone argued with me a bit ago that Madonna COULD TOO sing, and brought up her work on Evita.

    Dude. Did you ever hear how those songs were supposed to sound?

  100. Mrs MJ is going to see Lady Gaga, when she comes to Tampa.

    Is it too late for an intervention?

  102. On the other hand, at least she’s NOT Taylor Swift. *Spit.*

  103. …and metal.

    FTFY.

    Metal bands 1) Play their own instruments and 2) write their own music. Some even have good singers that don’t need auto-tune or boobies to distract the listeners.

  112. hey MJ, you rejoicing over the Cardinal news stories for the last week?

  113. Nah, not so much. Tommy John surgery sucks, and even though I don’t like the Cardinals much, I think Pujols is a good guy on and off the field.

    *punches self to retain dignity

    After being a Cub fan for so long, and watching others delight in the misery that comes with it, I can’t really reciprocate.

  114. Car/in as a former chicken owner amongst other things, thing is any removal or addition to the flock creates stress- redoing of pecking order. No eggs until said stress is sorted and done.

  115. Dusts poat with Florida slash pine pollen. There. Doesn’t everything *sneeze* look better with a green haze on it? *wipes eyes*

  118. Yeah, I feel ya. It’s good natured fun for fans to go at each other, and make fun of each other, but shouldn’t spill over to actual people playing the game. You never know, they might be on your team someday (Edmonds, Miles, Brock, etc.).

    Wainwright’s injury feels like a punch to the gut. Can’t quite get my breath for this season up. Probably similar to Cub fan’s feelings about Pryor and Wood.

    yep. Radiohead. For my entire 2-hour workout.

    Outside of a few of the contributors to the soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever, I’m not sure I could name one disco musician period.

  147. You gotta mop the floor before you can get on tittyweb? That’s fucked up.

    I presumed “mop the floor” was a euphemism for taking a nap while watching One Tree Hill and fapping to Sarah Silverman. Or something.

  148. Nah. I watched OTH last night. But I also watched NCIS, and most importantly, watched Justified.

  149. >> most importantly, watched Justified.

    Yes! Damned good episode.

  150. Yep. How long before Boyd falls from the path of righteousness?
