Kuwait Airways Vintage Photos

Posted by Mark

Kuwait Airways

My mum was a flight attendant on Kuwait Airways during the 70’s and she always talks about how great the experience was and how she got to travel to so many places and meet a lot of new people. Two months ago while I was in Lebanon I found a stash of old photos she had taken during that time and I found the pictures really interesting since I love photos from the 70’s and 80’s that deal with Kuwait.

[Click here to view the pictures]

Note: The last two pictures were taken on board the Amir’s plane (Amir Sabah al-Salim Al Sabah) which she served on the last period of her career.

Note 2: If anyone has a bunch of “colored” photos dealing with Kuwait which were taken during the 70’s and 80’s send me them and I will post them online.

Note 3: The uniforms were designed by Dior.

A Dead Body

Posted by Mark

My mums car REALLY stinks and its stinking up the whole underground parking. We seem to think a cat must have died in the engine since we couldn’t find a dead body in her trunk. I would open the hood to see if the theory is true but I figured the sight of a chopped up kitten splattered all over the engine bay would be something that I wouldn’t ever want to see.

Update:
We took the car to get washed today, turned out it was a large dead cat. First place refused to wash the car because of the small, second place charged double the price. It felt like a Seinfeld episode..

I just watched three really funny VW ads which poke fun out of the MTV show Pimp My Ride. Whats cool also is that the actor who plays John Abruzzi on the TV show Prison Break plays a leading role in these commercials. [Link]

Busy Busy Busy

Posted by Mark

I am really busy at work today trying to finish up some jobs before our long weekend. Hopefully during this vacation I will find time to post some cool stuff. For example I have these cool vintage pictures of Kuwait Airways which I need to get scanned, once I do I will post them here. I will be carrying my camera around also during the vacation taking pictures, I haven’t done that since I finished with Miskan. Once I get some cool pictures I will also post them online here. Its going to be a fun weekend.

Ashley Cole is in the Gay Orgy Sex Tape

Posted by Mark

Remember I posted about the two English Premiership soccer players who made a gay orgy sex tape and no one knew who the two players were? Well it turns out one of the players is none other then Ashley Cole! PinkNews originally had the article with the proof and all but their whole site is down now probably because they weren’t supposed to reveal who the plyaer was. You can still see it in the google cache though although without the picture proof. [Link]

Kuwait Celebration Tips for Newbies

Posted by Mark

Getting Foamed

I am not good at this but maybe some of you readers could help out. I want to make put together a (funny) list of tips for people who will be spending their first Kuwait National Day and Liberation Day in Kuwait. Something like David Letterman’s Top 10 list. Here are some bad examples I just thought of:

– Do not leave your house.
– Don’t make eye contact with someone with a foam can.
– If you are driving on the Gulf road, keep your windows closed and your doors locked.

blah blah etc.. Can anyone with a better sense of humor help out? Leave a comment and if its good will add it to the list.

If you have any tips for people who will be spending their first Kuwait National Day and Liberation Day in Kuwait, post it in the comments below.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X

Posted by Mark

I just checked out the new Flight Simulator screenshots and I am now considering purchasing a PC so I can play it. The graphics look really cool and soo real. The last Flight Simulator I played was Flight Simulator 5, it came on like a handful of floppy disks and I think I still have it at home. [Link]

Talent Show Cancelled/Postponed?

Posted by Mark

Although I had my camcorder prepared next to my bed in anticipation of this evenings talent show, the band formally known as idiots never showed up. I hope they just postponed the show till the weather drys up, I really want everyone to hear how weird and annoying these guys sounded singing in the middle of the night.
