Posts tagged #Valentines Day

We're on the front lines...

Other than Buzzfeed giving us another shoutout, we’ve been busy with our own personal projects. Taz got to sit down with a few other Californians to talk about her post-election thoughts, and Zahra went on NPR for an essay on prayer. Taz, too, went on another podcast: Sporkful, where she discussed love and pork. She's also performed at an event called Harness.

Besides Eid, there’s one holiday that Taz can’t get enough of… Valentine’s Day. If you’re into really kinky things like “heavy vetting” and using “unpresidented” as your safe word, then step right up to Taz’s Etsy shop. She almost always sells out.

Zahra also had her own sort of holiday: six performances of “On Behalf of All Muslims,” her new comedy special at the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California. The San Francisco Chronicle even mentioned her special! Every night was sold out. Looks like we might have to do a live performance of #GoodMuslimBadMuslim too...

Homework: Links for Episode #2

In our second podcast, Valentine's Day is Haram, Zahra and Taz talk about lots and lots of contemporary pop Muslim-ish hot topics. Here's a list of links so that you can keep up:

Next time, on the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast we talk about another twitter hashtag inspired art installation - The #MuslimVDay Cards! Initially started in 2011, Taz Ahmed painted her favorite hashtags into Valentines Day cards and mailed them out to her friends. Every year since then, she's been creating a series of six uniquely and politically charged punny cards. The cards set out to disrupt the narrative and make people think twice about the islamophobic rhetoric that exists - all while spreading love with cheeky snarky humor. Check out her full interview at Colorlines here.  

It is that time of the year again, and you can now buy your own set of #MuslimVDay cards! Pictured above is the latest #MuslimVDay 2015 set, but all four sets (for a total of 24 different images) are available for purchase at TazzyStar's Etsy Shop. Check out the shop and buy your cards here! 

And stay tuned for the next the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast out in early February.
