Meet Ronny Edry, creator of the Israel Loves Iran campaign. Celebrate Purim with Shtetl in the Middle East at the tent city protest and in a local Iranian restaurant. Lots of music and pre-election reflections.

In a mystical, Hasidic, or stoner interpretation, Purim represents a chance to see beyond the duality of good and evil. Author Joseph Rosen explains why we should all get wasted with the enemy, and just how hard that can be.

BJ Loomer unearths an obscure jazzy version of the Megillah in this first edition of MishMash: a semi-regular blog featuring random thoughts, partial impressions and musical preoccupations.

Karen Sherman, (choreographer of Slippery: a dance performance piece on ice), talks roller derby vs hockey.  Daniel Seligman, Creative Director of POP Montreal, talks smoked meat, poutine and indie music.  Plus, Zak Rosentzveig of “Hamantashen for Haiti” talks…hamantashen.

In the spirit of Purim, Shtetl decided to approach C.J. Goldman, mask and monster-maker, artist and creator of wrinkles, wounds and whatever else you can think of.
