Review Summary: This time its personal.

9 of 19 thought this review was well written

This time its personal. *** EM. These guys have sucks some ***in dicks for too longs. Geddy Lee, 1971, before Periphery was born, said, "blokes, theres gonna be a band called periphery that will blow penis." he was right. Neil Peart, 1980 frowned. It was because of Periphery. Alex Lifeson just smoked pot behind a trash can and smiled. "I think pot is good." said he. Twas right. BUt we all know what he did not say. He didnt say "Periphery is a good band" and he means what he doesnt say. Neil Peart: drum roll. Yes, *** heads, that means you suck weenee.

Bruce campbell once said, "I do movies because im a man, not because Periphery is a good band. because they arent. they suck. when i did army of darkness, i wasnt kidding when I said periphery sucks. yeah *** em." Tevin Wisenaut once said, " Im a gorilla and i punch periphery. yea" Periphery < poopoo.

Ol' Rush were eating at a hunters lodge, and the topic of wine came up. In Dogon thought, male and females are thought to be born with both sexual components. The clitoris is considered male, while the foreskin is considered to be female. Rites of circumcision thus allow each sex to assume its proper physical identity. Boys are circumcised in age groups of three years, counting for example all boys between 9 and 12 years old. This marks the end of their youth, and they are now initiated. The blacksmith performs the circumcision. Afterwards, they stay for a few days in a hut separated from the rest of the village people, until the wound has healed. The circumcision is a reason for celebration and the initiated boys go around and receive presents. They make music on a special instrument that is made of a rod of wood and calabashes that makes the sound of a rattle. The village of Songho has a circumcision cave ornamented with red and white rock paintings of animals and plants. Nearby is a cave where music instruments are stored. The newly circumcised men must walk around naked for a month after the procedure so that their achievement in age can be admired by the citizens of the tribe. This practice has been passed down for generations and is always followed, even during winter.
They are one of several African ethnic groups that practices female genital mutilation. The majority of the Dogon women practice a class 2 circumcision, meaning that both the clitoris and the labia minora are removed. Girls are circumcised around the age of 7 or 8 years, sometimes younger. Circumcision for both male and female is seen as necessary for the individual to gain gender. Before circumcision they are seen as 'neuter'.
