How can I give back to the community?

Posted by Mark

I always wanted to be a policeman and it pisses me off that I am not allowed to become one here in Kuwait? I can’t even become a reserve cop! I have lived here all my life and I want to give back to the community by becoming a cop, shouldn’t I be allowed to? If I want to give back to my community what else can I do? What options do I have as an expat?

Memoirs of a Geisha Banned in Kuwait

Posted by Mark

I just read that Memoirs of a Geisha got banned in Kuwait. I wasn’t interested in watching it, but I am curious to why it got the ban. I am also curious to why it was playing in the movies here for a week now, why didn’t they ban it from the beginning? [Link]

Showbox like Tivo?

Posted by Mark

Thanks to Rami I currently use Tivo to record all my favorite shows on Showtime. But tonight I past by the Showtime stand at Marina Mall and noticed they now have something similar called Showbox. I tried to find out how close Showbox is to Tivo in features but the salesperson there didn’t know anything. The way she explained it to me was that with Showbox I can watch any show I want any time, meaning if I feel like watching King of Queens now I can just click on King of Queens and watch it live. I think thats bullshit and she really doesn’t know what she is talking about. I got the leaflet on the Showbox from her and I was able to understand a bit more. Basically what I understood is you can pause live TV which is something the Tivo can do of course. With Showbox you could also schedule what you want it to record for you 7 days in advance but say Seinfeld is playing everyday, you have to manually tell it to record each and every episode one by one. Now this is where Tivo kicks Showbox’s ass. With Tivo I can just say record every episode of Seinfeld with one command and it will record every episode of Seinfeld from now until I tell it not to which can be a month from now, a year from now.. whenever I want. I don’t have to manually set it to record each and every episode over and over. Anyway she also said Showbox would cost me KD135 and has an 80GB hard drive inside. Tivo cost me $70 and I have a 120GB drive inside. So far Showbox doesn’t interest me but it might for those of you who don’t have a Tivo. I scanned the leaflet and you can check it out below.

I think you can also find more information on showbox.showtimearabia.com but I wasn’t able to connect to it because I am on my slow GPRS connection now.

The 2:48AM Forum

Posted by Mark

I just setup a forum for this site. I figured readers can hang out there, chat and discuss stuff. People new to Kuwait can also go in and ask questions if they have any and other users can answer them back. The forum is easy to use and I don’t think anyone should have any trouble using it. I placed a link in the top menu for easy access. Check it out. [Link]

The Choowy Goowy Experience

Posted by Mark

choowy goowy

Last week I received five jars of Choowy Goowy cookies each a different flavor. The flavors are Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Cinnamon, Macadamia and Double Chocolate. After sharing the cookies with family and friends, I realized I wasn’t going to be able to review each flavor separately and the reason being no one had anything negative to say about the cookies! Everyone who tried the cookies automatically fell in love with a flavor and started ordering jars for themselves. They are really all delicious and its become a common sight in my office for example to find cookie jars on some peoples desks. Everyone who finds out about the service is amazed such a thing exists in Kuwait.

So basically its not about which cookie flavor is the best. They are all the best, its about which flavor is your favorite. I know mine and its the double chocolate.

Want to order cookies? Call them up at 2626559.

Scary Movie 4

Posted by Mark

scary movie 4

I watched the trailer a few days ago and it looks like Scary Movie 4 is going to be even sillier and funnier then the previous movies. In the trailer they spoofed War of the Worlds, The Grudge, Saw and The Village but the actual movie will contain even more spoofs from more movies. Here is a link to the trailer. [Link]

Update: Qualitynet for some stupid reason is blocking the Scary Movie website. Here is another link to the trailer. [Link]

Two English Premiership Soccer Players Have a Gay Orgy Sex Tape

Posted by Mark

Supposingly the tape is floating around on the web but I haven’t been able to find it. I haven’t been able to find the name of the players either but I was able to find a few articles online with details on what exactly is going on in the video my favorite being an article by Gambiling911 (sounds like a very reliable source). In the article they talk about some of the sex acts that take place on the video and here is an example of one:

Player A—a household name who has a reputation as a rebel on and off the pitch—shoves his mobile down his boxers.

He performs a sex act with it which is too obscene to be described here. Then Player B calls his number to make the phone vibrate. Player A is also pictured on the bed while Player B—a multi-million pound goal-scoring mid-fielder—kneels to perform oral sex on him.

I am really curious to know who the players are. [Link]

Portishead Remixed

Posted by Mark

Dumb Remix

Wow, this “Dummy” album remix is fucking amazing! If you were a fan of Portishead then you will really love this remixed album. I am soo bored of all the Portishead songs but these remixes have brought them back to life. This remix album is as good if not better then Dj Danger Mouse’s “The Grey Album“.

Here’s a link to the site with MP3’s [Link]
