Osteria Italiana

Osteria

Tonight I had dinner at what was Hitlers favorite Italian restaurant, Osteria Italiana. The place used to be called Osteria Bavaria and Hitler used to eat there so often that he had his own armored room in the middle of the restaurant which I got to see. The food was incredible, very authentic and delicious. I heard this story that supposedly happened recently about this girl who came to the restaurant daily in hopes of seeing Hitler. She came in daily for a month and when she got fed up of waiting she asked the waiter if he knew when Hitler would be coming. When the waiter told her Hitler was dead the girl went into a depression and tried to shoot herself. She ended up in a failed suicide attempt and it now paralyzed neck down. Pretty weird.

The Cinemizer

I passed by an Apple retailer in Munich today to check and see if by any chance they had the new iPod’s in stock. Turns out they will get them at the end of the week which sucks for me since I would be back in Kuwait. While at the store I spotted the Cinemizer which I posted about back in May. There was a working display model which I got to play around with. Watching a video through the glasses felt like I was sitting in a dark room with a large TV in front of me which was pretty cool. The glasses were comfortable to wear and I think it would a lot more practical watching a movie with these glasses then off my tiny iPod screen. But I think I looked really weird standing in the store with these glasses on. Imagine the reaction you would get from strangers if you wore your sunglasses while on the plane. Now imagine the reaction you would get wearing these thick ugly frames with wires running out of them… [Link]

The Simpsons intro using Lego

This is one of those look at how much free time some people have posts. A friend was telling me he has a friend who’s Ramadan working hours is from 11 to 1PM which is even less working hours then the banks which are open from 10:30 to 1PM. Seriously I need to change jobs. [YouTube]

I wonder if they’re already available at Mac dealers here in Munich. If they are then I am going to have a hard time choosing a color. [Link]

The connection sucks (thats what the topic title is supposed to say) at my hotel. Its free Internet but I would be willing to pay for a faster connection. Currently its worse than dial up speed and its not like I am in the Sahara Desert or in Antartica, I am in Munich!

Got them!

These are probably the most visually challenged sneakers I have seen but I’ve had my eyes on them since April and I couldn’t resist not getting them. They just look really random, like a monkey put them together or something.

I found the pair on sale at this pretty cool sneaker store here in Munich that sells exclusive stuff. Its not as big as Size? in London but its walking distance from my hotel.

Update: I also got [These] and will be getting [These] and [These]

Adidas Originals

Adidas Munich

Yesterday I passed by Adidas Originals near my hotel but found it closed since it turned out they were renovating and the reopening would be today (lucky me). I passed by a few hours ago to see if they still had anymore Adidas Diesel jeans and turns out they had just received the new seasons collection. I got a pair and will be going back again for another. I tried finding them online last time but they only sell them at Adidas stores and are a limited run so even finding new pairs on eBay isn’t easy.

Ajwan’s Ramadan Ad

Post by K.theKuwaiti

I have been trying to follow this year’s ‘Ramadan Season’ television; however, most of our beloved shows have given up on originality and are just trying to add a new taboo to a recycled story line.

My family actually looks forward to the commercial breaks more than the shows themselves. You know there is something wrong when advertisements are more entertaining than the content itself. [YouTube]

Dodge Charger cop cars

An anonymous reader emailed me a link to this article. It seems its confirmed, Kuwait is going with Dodge Chargers which is something everyone thought would happen since the alternatives weren’t as practical. [Link]
