We’re all in the Arab Times

Post by Mark

Arab Times printed an article in today’s paper on Latina Mina’s drunk deejaying the other night and the whole article was just all quotes from the post on my blog and all its commentators. Its cool that blogs are actually being taken seriously but they should have actually mentioned 2:48AM instead of calling it just “a blog”. I guess they should have also written an article instead of just taking quotes from everyone and sticking them together. Here is the link to the article on Arab Times and if it doesn’t open up for some reason I’ve saved a pdf version which you can download below. Maybe I should just call them “a newspaper” from now on.

Update: Latina Mina has fled the country. Here is the latest article on this from “a newspaper”. [PDF version]

Update2: According to someone working at 99.7, any employee at the station who asks for a recording of the session will get fired on the spot. The ministry really does not want the recording to make its way online.

Jericho

Jericho

I am currently extremely hooked on the tv series Jericho. I’ve been watching one episode after another without a break, the only other show that does this to me is 24. The plot of the series is very unique which is why I think I am addicted to it. I am not going to go into too much details as so not to ruin it for anyone but basically a nuclear bomb goes off in the city of Denver and a small Kansas town nearby try to cope with the aftereffects. Definitely worth watching if you can get a hold of it. [Link]

Hotel Missoni – Kuwait

Post by Mark

This looks like its going to be a really cool hotel but its strange that they’re opening the first Missoni Hotels in Edinburg and Kuwait. I thought I had posted something about it before but can’t seem to find my post. This is the hotels launch movie which is beautifully done. [YouTube]

Latina Mina Drunk on 99.7

Post by Mark

I just heard that the radio dj Latina Mina on the Super Station 99.7 was drunk on air. Supposedly there was a doctor on the program and she was hitting on him then when another radio dj told her she was embarrassing the radio station she replied by cussing on air. They then killed the broadcast. If anyone has a copy of the session we are offering money for the recording!! CASH!

Update: I just got the following in my email

You have to report about what just happened on 99.7. Mark, it was unbelievable. This latina DJ was soo drunk on air and was slurring throughout the whole show. Suddenly, a caller calls in, which is when the radio station "thinks" they were off air. The caller swears at the DJ, telling her shes making a fool of herself and that she’s a "drunk hoochie". What does this smart DJ say? Go fuck yourself, go fuck your father and your brother. This was all on air. about 15 minutes ago. the sad thing is, they thought they were off air during that since she came back on air closing the show and telling "all the haters out there" to get a life or somethin. Now, that was something you had to listen to. Wonder what will happen to her, AND 99.7!!

Apple TV finally of use

Post by Mark

Apple TV

I’ve always wanted an Apple TV but I couldn’t find a use for it. I had XBMC (xbox media center) running on my old Xbox and it was doing more than fine. I’ve already posted before on how XBMC is the best media center software in the market and Apple TV really stood no chance to compete… until now. Ten days ago a hack was released that would allow the installation of XBMC on the Apple TV. It’s a very simple process, you just install the hack onto a usb memory stick, plug the stick behind the Apple TV and just reboot. It then takes around 30 seconds to install XBMC and thats it.

What are the advantages of XBMC on Apple TV over XBMC on the original Xbox?
1) Apple TV is quieter since it doesn’t contain a loud fan like on the Xbox
2) Connects via HDMI or Component cable while XBMC is only component
3) Can play 720P movies while XBMC can’t
4) The interface is snappier since Apple TV is a faster machine
5) It looks better and takes up much less space
6) Integrates with iTunes on my main server

I am so satisfied with Apple TV now that I’ve already unplugged my old Xbox and placed it in storage. If you don’t have an Apple TV Amazon sells them for KD60. Here is the [Link]

XBMC DVD

If you’re interested in setting up XBMC on Apple TV here is the guide I used. [Link]

In case you didn’t know already, XBMC is a media center software that will allow you to stream practically any movie format from your main server. Also as a side note, the right arrow key on my MacBook just stopped working awhile ago, I think its a sign I need to get the new MacBook.

Update: If you want to try out XBMC its also available for Windows, Mac’s and Linux. [Download]

Note: XBMC does NOT run on the Xbox 360, it only runs on the original Xbox.

I want the new MacBook 25%

Post by Mark

MacBook

So the new MacBook’s are out and I want one. Problem is every time I get the first release of a laptop from Apple I get screwed. With my iBook I ended up with the infamous logic board problem, with my MacBook I ended up with the discolored palm rest followed by a logic board problem. So thats twice in a row, which is why I am hesitant. [Link]
