Happy Birthday FARAZ

Why not seize the day to check out how your life is going? Rethink your errors and remember your successes, forgive yourself for your failures and take pride in your achievements. And remember that these errors, successes, failures and achievements are your story, the story of your life.
And for this reason they should all be equally valued. Without them, you would not be who you are today.

We would like to wish you lots of peace, health, happiness and, of course, lots of love.


this was the thoughtful message from GAZZAG network just for my damn, f***ing birthday

who am i?, a rebel, but who is rebel?

"The rebel can never find peace. He knows what is good and, despite himself, does evil. The value which supports him is never given to him once and for all”
Albert Camus

“A hero is someone who rebels or seems to rebel against the facts of existence and seems to conquer them. Obviously that can only work at moments. It can't be a lasting thing. That's not saying that people shouldn't keep trying to rebel against the facts of existence. Someday, who knows, we might conquer death, disease and war.”
Jim Morrison

“They stick you with those names, those labels -- ‘rebel’ or whatever; whatever they like to use. Because they need a label; they need a name. They need something to put the price tag on the back of.””
Johnny Depp

“What is a rebel? A man who says no”
Albert Camus

“(Pain) removes the veil; it plants the flag of truth within the fortress of a rebel soul”
C.S. Lewis

"Every woman is a rebel, and usually in wild revolt against herself.”
Oscar Wilde

bertrand russell quotations

“The governors of the world believe, and have always believed, that virtue can only be taught by teaching falsehood, and that any man who knew the truth would be wicked. I disbelieve this, absolutely and entirely. I believe that love of truth is the basis of all real virtue, and that virtues based upon lies can only do harm.”
(From The Prospects of Industrial Civilization [London: Allen & Unwin, 1923], p. 252; written in collaboration with Dora Russell)


-“Truth is a shining goddess, always veiled, always distant, never wholly approachable, but worthy of all the devotion of which the human spirit is capable.”
(From “University Education”, Fact and Fiction [London: Allen & Unwin, 1961])

-“Mathematics may be defined as the subject where we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.”
(CPBR 3: 366 : 31-3 (“Recent Work on the Principles of Mathematics”, a.k.a. “Mathematics and the Metaphysicians”)

-“I found one day in school a boy of medium size ill-treating a smaller boy. I expostulated, but he replied: ’The bigs hit me, so I hit the babies; that’s fair.’ In these words he epitomized the history of the human race.”

what a translation!

what-a-translation.jpg

again Enghelab CLUB, in the same place that you see the those ads ,there are for sure the strict slogan for preserving the religous regulations, but just look at the translation, it is better after 30 years they hire a pro to just translate some basic slogans to english! and prevent such a scandel at all

money money money

even in the most severly religious protected club,BASHGAH ENGHELAB, if you look at ads you could find these pitoresque stuff! you know money can bend every thing, however i don't think that it would be legal to project the advertising in this club due to its expensive membership fee

enghelab%20club%20and%20ads.jpg

lust.jpg

even they promote bravely the "LUST" in their ads , why? , to sell more, but why? , to earn more money, for what?, surely to widespread their revolution to the entire world!

WHO AM I???????????????????????


As I enter the dean’s office, the secretary stare at me, he is silent; I should break the killing silence
[I]- I have an appointment with dean at 9 o’clock
[Secretary]-what is your name please?
When I introduced myself; he looks up in a book
[Secretary]-the dean is in a meeting; you should wait
And again silence, he completely ignored me and didn’t ask me to sit so I sit. It is 9 o’clock, I start to read ARCHVOICES competition and think about the theme…it is now 12
[Secretary]-you can enter
[I]-I go to the door and enter the room
It is as big as our house but it is furnished with expensive stuffs
[Dean]-sit down please, may I see your resume?
[I]-I put it on the desk
It seems that he don’t have time to read it
[Dean]-may you please explain about your works?
last year I wrote two papers that both of them were published in Diversity in architecture 2003 which was held by BSA and AIA and TERRA 2003 that..
[Phone rings]
[Dean]- (he interrupts my sentence and answers the phone)…yes...ok... bye
He asks me” what is your opinion about Globalization?”
I get angry with his irreverence question; anyway I control myself and start thinking why he asks me this question, maybe he wants to see which SIDE I am(with them or against them)
[I]-I think globalization is a natural process but universalism is different it is not natural also diversity is the main factor of globalization but..
[Phone rings]
[Dean]- (he interrupts my sentence and answers the phone
I realize that he is speaking about money, bank account. Now he hangs the phone and turns to me. He seems to find that I am not in his side
[Dean]-explain about your papers!
I start to explain suddenly he interrupt me
[Dean]-but architects are not responsible to give plans for villages
[Phone rings]
He answers the phone
[I]- (I say to myself as the answer of his claim” in this country from 30 years ago architects have given plans for village”)
[Dean]-what can I do for you?
I see red what f***ing he is talking about, his question was a clear answer for me
I should go out
[His cell rings]
I think of past when I delivered these two essay to my professor and he gave me C as mark and I failed the course; when I asked him the reason, he said: “what I say you is valuable see it is the matter of what you do and what you don’t do, international essay is nothing”I am completely ignored when secretary come in and gives the dean some stuffs and I think more of past; I remember the day that my parents want to build a new house they go to a civil engineer for plan and didn’t ask me a word.
What should I expect others when my parents ignore me
I look at dean who is busy with cell is going out without a word
[Secretary]-please go out we are closed for praying time
I go to my old classroom; it is empty; I member professors who were sick in mind and heart I go to blackboard and jot down
How can I effect in future when i am totally ignored?
Artist factualists and singers effect more than any architects can do
How can I effect in a city that more than 40% of construction is illegal
.
.
.
I was effected by architecture much, architecture is a way to find myself, to be more sensitive than others I walk to blackboard and clean all i wrote, i get a red chalk and write
WHO AM I???????????????????????With 23 question marks that stand for my age
[Cleaning man] please go out sir I want to clean the classroom
As i leave the class I turn back and see the man is murmuring and cleaning the blackboard.
.
.
.
to be continued...
