A little something here in video form from Craig Wetherby, Timbo Baggins, and their Good Life! entity. Me and Craig (and Timbo) used to work together over at The Frank151. It seems they have a hand in Coal’s Ambassador program, and linked up Ian Longwell - drummer for Santigold - for this short clip. What’s more, they enlisted my bud Roofeeo aka youlookstupid (TV On The Radio) on the track. This one is about living The Good Life!
Among the tablets is the private archive of a 21st century BC Sumerian princess in the city of Garsana that has made scholars rethink the role of women in the ancient kingdom of Ur. The administrative records show Simat-Ishtaran ruled the estate after her husband died.
During her reign, women attained remarkably high status. They supervised men, received salaries equal to their male counterparts’ and worked in construction, the clay tablets reveal.
