hung up

I can’t get the song Hung Up by Madonna out of my head. When I wake up in the morning the song is usually stuck in my head, I am always singing it when I am not paying attention and I am always listening to it on my iPod.

ps: I just realized the only lyrics I know from the song is the one line “Time goes by, so slowly time goes by..” I think I will learn more of the lyrics at least..

update: just got the lyrics click on more to read them

Miami Vice

Posted by Mark

miami vice

I just watched the trailer for Miami Vice and I think its going to rock. I had my doubts before because of Colin Farrell but watching the trailer now I think he fits the part very nicely. The only downside to the trailer is the music, I was hoping for a remake of the original theme, maybe that will be there once the movie gets released. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet you can do so on the official movie website. [Link]

Twelve months, twelve films

Posted by Mark

Here is a list by the Guardian Unlimited of the best movies of 2005, I watched three movies, Sideways, A History of Violence and Downfall. I really loved Downfall a lot, one of the best World War related movie I have ever seen but I found both Sideways and A History of Violence very subpar.

January: Sideways
February: The Woodsman
March: 5 X 2
April: Downfall
May: The Consequences Of Love
June: Kung Fu Hustle
July: Dig!
August: The Last Mitterrand
September: Innocence
October: A History of Violence
November: The Beat That My Heart Skipped
December: Lower City

2 Days Left

jazeera

I am traveling on Monday via Jazeera Airways to Beirut. I booked the tickets back in October before Jazeera started its first flight so no one knew how they would turn out to be. So far I have heard a lot of positive reviews on Jazeera. I heard the service is friendly, the planes are very clean, the seats are all leather and the in flight food being great. I also heard one negative review which I believe is just a rumor or urban legend. I heard that a lot of people are getting to the airport and finding their seats canceled. I doubt that is true and the person who told me this never flied with Jazeera. Anyway I will write up a short review once I get to Lebanon and post it online.
