Iconic Iranian Caricatures

Mohammad Ali Ziaei Caricature artist. No one is off limits – Iranian artists and politicians, and certainly people in the wild wild west. Major shout-out to ReorientMag for bringing this genius to our attention. Hilarity ensues. Mohsen Namjoo. Otherwise known as Iran’s “Bob Dylan,” he’s inspired by Blues, Rock, and Iranian folk music Hayedeh. The […]


Growing Up With Special Needs

Every Persian parent’s dream is to have their child become a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. But what happens when you already know that there is little chance of that happening? It’s often devastating for parents to receive news that their child has some sort of special needs. Special needs come in various forms: autism, epilepsy, down […]


11 Reasons Norouz Is Better Than Any Other Holiday

Holidays are great, no matter where they come from or who celebrates them. Holidays are an excuse to celebrate, eat, and be slightly more cordial to people. But, Norouz, no matter how you spell it, is the best holiday ever. Why? #1 You don’t get presents. You get Cash. Money. #2 It falls on the […]


I Love and Hate Dating White Boys

I really try not to discriminate: Asian, Black, Mexican, Persian obviously, and Sefeed - you name it, I’ve tried it. And as much as I prefer Persian, you have to work with what you’re surrounded with. Especially on the east coast… which is 90% white. Looking back at my dating history with white guys, I’ve come to realize that there […]

Time to crash the Pity Party

Hey joonjoons, Welcome to bitch-sesh. For some of us (the lucky ones) the topic of marriage isn’t even mentioned in our household until after high school. Unless of course, you visit your grandmother in Iran and you have a new khastegar (suitor) every week… um sorry but that should really be called, “Hi, I’d like to […]

Don’t you know that you’re toxic?

Hi Joonies. Every time I blog, I rack my brain of something really witty to start a post off with. I can’t say it ever really works, but I’m just going to leave it to someone waaay more talented to give me an intro: There are three things I value most in life: 1. My […]

I just want to start this post off by saying… my joonie Saaghi is on to something about these Indian boys.  No joke. But honestly, why it is that we are SO set on dating the perfect Irooni boy?  The doctor, engineer… lawyer? What is it about these damn Iranian boys that we just can’t […]



JOONS, we can’t claim we rep Iranian/Persian roots if we don’t put up a NOWROUZ/Norooz/EID post. We’re taking a minute out of our super busy day (who else left cleaning and showering for the last minute?) to wish you all a very Happy New Year. 1391 style.


I’ll Hit You

JOOOOOONIEESSS. I feel like it’s been awhile– I’ve been having withdrawals.  I need to speak to some people who can relate to how I feel- who understand what it’s like to have Persian parents. My NON-Persian friends just don’t get it.  They don’t get why in my mid-20s, I still have to ask my parents […]

Let Me Put Some Kush Up In It

VASUP, joons. I’m actually writing to you from the comfort of my futon, in a bathrobe (even though I showered 2 hours ago), munching on whatever I can get my hands on. Its a lazy Monday– we all know real responsibilities start on TUESDAY. And if your weekend wasn’t as great as mine (I set the […]
