S+ARCK SUCKS

Posted by Mark

starck puma

What the hell is wrong with this guy? He should go back to doodling chairs. The new Puma’s he’s designed are really butt ugly. According to Starck:

This shoe collection is modern because it includes all the technology we now know… but without having to show it – because we don’t need to show it!

These shoes are based not on design, not on showing off, not on more and more and more features, but on showing less and less and less. It means more technology, more intelligence, but less styling. This is the secret of the product of tomorrow.

Either I am too old or the world has turned gay. These shoes are available at Athletes Foot in Marina Mall if you want to see them in person.

The Village

The Bourne Supremacy
Once again I was able to watch two movies yesterday. The first movie I watched was The Bourne Supremacy. It was very forgetful and I think it would be a waste of my time to talk about it allot. I don’t know how the movie scored a 7.4 on IMDB. It was better then Be Cool and Kicking & Screaming but not better then the second movie I watched, The Village.

The Village
Two days ago McArabian suggested I should watch the movie The Village starring Joaquin Phoenix. So I downloaded it and watched it last night and it was a really good movie. It’s not one of the best movies I’ve watched this year but not every movie has to be the best movie ever to be good. Here is the plot summary from IMDB:

In a quiet, isolated village in olde Pennsylvania, there lies a pact between the people of the village and the creatures who reside in the surrounding woods: the townspeople do not enter the woods, and the creatures do not enter the village. The pact stays true for many years, but when Lucius Hunt seeks medical supplies from the towns beyond the wood, the pact is challenged. Animal carcasses, devoid of fur, begin to appear around the village, causing the council of elders to fear for the safety of the village, the pact, and so much more.

So the movie starts off very quiet and “normal” but by the time you get to the last 30 minutes everything changes, you just sit there and go no fucking way, no fucking way. I like movies who can do that to me. McArabian was also right when she said that The Village is a good Phoenix movie. Since I watched Ladder 49 and now this, my views on Joaquin Phoenix have changed a lot and all for the better. Adrien Brody and Sigourney Weaver also star in this movie. I personally think she should stick to fighting aliens, it doesn’t suit her to be an old mother in a village. So if you readers can watch this movie I would definitely recommend it.

Bored Fire Fighters

Posted by Mark

fire

Tonight someone lit up the trash bin again. It happens often but tonight 2 fire trucks and 1 fire car were called in to put out the fire. The thing is there was a cop at the scene first and I believe he called the fire fighters in but they seemed to have been misinformed on the size of the fire. As soon as they saw that it was only a trash bin one of the trucks and the fire car turned around and left.

Two pictures of the same street, one from 1991 and one from 2005. It’s amazing how fast Dubai grew, I have seen pictures of Kuwait from 1983 and the places still look the same today! [Link]

Lulu Supermarket

Ummm what happened to the new Supermarket called Lulu that was supposed to open in Rai adjacent to the 4th Ring Road? I past by it last night and the Lulu Supermarket sign is down and replaced by “Dream Mall” or something like that. How did the supermarket that was gonna try to take over the market turn into a mall??

No More Subway

Posted by Mark

subway

Ok I have decided I am going to stop eating at Subway. Last month I mentioned how I had Subway and everything tasted different. Well it wasn’t a fluke! Yesterday for lunch I decided to have Subway, I ordered a 6-inch Meatballs and a 6-inch Italian BMT. I couldn’t finish my sandwiches because they tasted so bad! The lettuce tasted like rubber for example while the olives tasted really weird and overpowered everything else in the sandwich. I just couldn’t finish my sandwiches. I have coupons now for 3 free 6-inches and I won’t use them because the sandwiches were so bad I wouldn’t eat them even if I got them for free! What a disappointment.
