At some point this month the streets of Hollywood will be closed off for a protest parade to observe the Armenian genocide of 1915. Apparently Turkish soldiers killed a ton of Armenians and forced them out of their homeland, but most people (including you) don’t even know about it. Every year I patiently stand on my balcony looking for the first Kardashian sister I can spot, but I always end up talking to my gay neighbor about everyone’s car being towed on our street. Although Gegard Mousasi trains out of Los Angeles for most of the year, I’ve yet to see him hold up a banner and participate in one of these Armenian parades. Granted, he is Armenian — but he was also born in Tehran, Iran. That means he can speak Farsi while simultaneously communicating to Kim Kardashian’s backside by ancient Armenian divination.
What website would be foolish enough to publish an entire interview in Farsi when less than .5% of you even know what Farsi is? Well us, of course. We’re just attempting to publish the first Mousasi article on MiddleEay that will garner zero comments. Now, let’s see if this works.
