Young video warrior Maya isn’t the most exciting performer out there and she certainly isn’t someone whose music I turn to, but she and her crew have gone a bit beyond. This new video of hers has a bit more of a kick to it than what I’m used to from her; what makes it interesting to watch, though, is how she has constructed a world that escapes the boundaries of culture. What I mean by that is Maya has given birth to an apostatic abomination that history is threatening to vomit into a wormhole. Actually, this video is so beautiful that I don’t know how to describe it so I will once again shut up.

UPDATE! After doing a little research I’ve discovered that this is no fantasy world; this is the reality of modern Arab life. Witness the following videos and know that find more you need only go to youtube and type ‘arab drifting’ or ‘sandal skating’.
