africa '70

Headcanon time, Eric Forman in Africa edition (also ignoring season 8):

– One of his best experiences was having the chance to start teaching a group of kids whose excitement for school and activities make him realize his own privilage. It truly changed him, to know there is in fact a world outside his comfort.

– He also refered to that small groud as “my kids”, and even years later, he still does.

– After visiting home during the holidays, he came back to find a group of naturists and nature photographers at his community. The group was very friendly and he quickly became friends with the photographer leader, Noah. They spend a lot of time together and the photographer even took him to one of their excursions and let him be in one session.

“Babylon is everywhere. You have wrong and you have right. Wrong is what we call Babylon, wrong things. That is what Babylon is to me. I could have born in England, I could have born in America, it make no difference where me born, because there is Babylon everywhere.” ― Bob Marley

Headcanon/meta: Outside of Eric's love for Donna and *Star Wars* and toys, we don't know much about his passions/goals/dreams for himself. What do you think Eric would like to do as a career based on the little we do know about him (ignoring the show making him a teacher 'cause they didn't know what to do with him, either)?

bOY, YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH I HAVE TO THINK THIS? LOL, this is by far the most difficult meta I have wrote. And I’m saying this after having wrote one about Samantha.

So, we have Eric who doesn’t know what the hell he wants of himself, of his life. He has no idea if he has a future, because he doesn’t see one. Different from Hyde, who sees his future all bad and that’s why he tries to run away from it. No, Eric doesn’t even see a bad future for himself, let a lone a good one.

But why? What is stopping Eric so hard?

Somalia's lost tapes revive musical memories
The recent rediscovery of more than 10,000 recordings has tantalised enthusiasts.

It’s fantastic to hear of new tapes being found and lovingly released given that original pressings of ‘world’ music can be so expensive if they exist at all!
I’ve been saying for over a decade now that one of the many fruits that the internet and downloading culture in general have brought to the table is that it allows us all to hear a breadth of sounds, languages, approaches and traditions that we otherwise could very well never have heard.

Thanks to Sammy for forwarding this article to me; it was added to my wishlist purely out of curiosity!
