I'm off to the theatre for the night, (undisclosed location, just in case. lol) so I thought I'd post a little bit of musical love. Sweeney Todd, opening night. A Little Priest, from 1979. Awesomeness.

And some fascinating stuff:

The Tuareg are known as "the people of the veil" because, at the age of 25, the men begin wearing a veil that conceals the whole face excluding their eyes. They never remove this veil, even amongst family members; it is believed to protect them from evil spirits that enter the body through the nose and mouth. The Tuareg women are not veiled, although they do wear a head-scarf over their hair after they are married to show that they are no longer available to other men. Most Tuareg are followers of Islam, and they are generally found in Nigeria, Senegal, Mali, and Burkina Faso.

Kind of random, but I know Ten Thousand Villages (NA based fair-trade company) used to sell some *gorgeous* Tuareg-made silver jewelry.

Hunh, fascinating. Men, but not women, wear these veils? That's an interesting twist!

That`s a very good idea about the Tuareg - no feminism! We should also take a look at the women of India who put points of different color to their foreheads according to if they are married or not.
