I Hate Mechanics and Doctors

Posted by Mark

Just took my car to the mechanique because it was making some sounds and vibrations. I don’t like mechanics, they are like doctors. You go to a doctor for a checkup, he tells you that X and Y are wrong with you and that you need to take this and that medicine. You say ok and you leave the office and go get the medicine. You have no clue if the doctor is right or what the hell he was talking about. Same with mechanics. You go there, he tells you that X and Y are fucked up and it will cost you need this and that to fix it. You nod your head pretending you understood what the hell he just spoke about and you agree he fixes them for you.

Looks like a very gross way of doing it but seems simple enough. Beats mixing KDD cocktail juice with Jackson perfume easily. [Link]

Someone went and got all the videos from Live 8, cut them up into separate songs and uploaded them on line for everyone to download. They are pretty big files ranging from 30MB to 70MB so they will take you a while to download. Here is the link. [Link]

Update: Just finished downloading my first video, its pretty fucking good quality, really cool.

RKFM Want Your Feedback!

Posted by Mark

I just received an email from someone at RKFM which I thought I would share with you and let you readers reply. Here is the email:

Dear Mark

I’m a fan of your art and I enjoy checking your posts on your blogs every now and then… but I didn’t realise that RKFM was that bad… and you have every right to criticize us… but what do you suggest we do to make it better? … is it just the lack of variety in music or the scheduling of songs? … listeners lame requests? or just plain boring dj’s? is there something specific that pisses you off about it? or all of the above lol!

hope to hear from you soon

So thats the email, leave your feedback in the comments. Thank you.

Review: Fried Chicken Meal

Posted by Mark

I don’t eat homemade food, not because I don’t like it but because I think if it takes you more time to cook it then it takes to eat it, then its not worth it. Recently I started getting microwavable food and its been a good experience. I used to think microwavable food cost KD1.5 and upwards which to me wasn’t a good deal since I could get a McDonalds combo for KD1.2, but I checked the freezers recently and you can now find meals for 500 fils and upwards. So I decided I will start buying the meals and reviewing them starting with Banquet’s “Chicken Fried Chicken Meal”.

The picture on the package looks very appetizing. What you get is fried chicken, mashed potatoes and corn. The only issue I have with the package is that on the back where the directions on how to microwave the meal is located, a large sticker with the ingredients and stuff written in Arabic is stuck on it. Very practical, how am I supposed to know how long to microwave it for if the instructions are covered!?

When it came time to cook the meal I had to remove the white sticker on the back to reveal the instructions. The instructions are easy, take out the tray, remove the transparent film cover, cook on high for 3 minutes, open microwave, stir mashed potatoes, shove back into microwave and cook for another 3 minutes. The final result? Doesn’t look very close to the picture on the package. In fact, it didn’t look appetizing at all, I even considered tossing the whole thing out because it looked as if I had cooked it wrong.

So how was it? Surprisingly good! Very strange, it looks like crap but tastes pretty good. The mashed potato was great, the corn tasted very similar to the corn at Chili’s and the chicken, although soft, tasted very cool. I was eating it and Nat was looking at me in disgust, I told her it tasted a lot better then it looked but she refused to try it.

How much did it cost me? Only 750fils! This is an incredible deal really, the taste was pretty good and although the meal wasn’t very filling, its perfect for dinner. I would definitely buy it again. Final score is 3.5 out of 5. It lost big points on the presentation.

If you are a runner/biker/etc.. and want to know the distance you ran/biked/etc.. you can now use this handy tool called Gmaps Pedometer. You zoom in to the area where you ran/bikes/etc.. and then you can mark you route and it will tell you the ditance you rant. Here is the link [Link]

Note: when you click on the link and go to the page, once you get there press satellite on the top right. When you find the location you ran/biked/etc.. click on Start Recording then double click your starting point on the map and then just keep double clicking on the route you took, it will draw lines for you and measure your distance.
