My friend is going to Madrid soon and he was checking out hotels when he found this one. Every floor is designed by a different designer and is a completely different style and mood then the other. My favorite is is the Zaha Hadid floor, looks like something off an alien spaceship. [Link]

The Old Days (4 years ago)

Post by Mark

I was just flipping through my archive of pictures when I found this. Its a picture of my original iPod with Nibaqs old iPod FM transmitter. That over sized black box with the pull out antenna is what we used to use to connect our iPods to the car stereo. There were no iTrips or any of those tiny sexy looking white transmitters back then.

The Scientific Center

Post by Mark

the scientific center

From all the cool strange touristic places in Kuwait like the Zoo, Entertainment City, Ice Skating Rink, Green Island etc.. my favorite is definitely The Scientific Center. Its such a beautiful and relaxing place. I passed by there today, it was only my second (or third) time so the large shark aquariums still mesmerizes me when I see it. I sat on one of the benches watching the sharks and fish swim and awhile later four scuba divers appeared and started cleaning the tank. It was fun to watch and the aquarium is really gigantic. If you haven’t been there yet you need to. The entrance fee is KD3 but its not only for the aquarium, there is another section you pass through first which has like bats, lizards, snakes, crocodiles etc.. When you visit the place you won’t believe you are in Kuwait.

Movies I have recently watched

Post by Mark

Shortbus
A pretty strange movie dealing with different people and their problems. I don’t understand how this movie is not x-rated.
I Liked it.

The Pursuit of Happyness
This movie had so much negativity. The whole movie is just one sad story. I think its my favorite Will Smith movie, but damn this movie is sad.
I Liked it.

You, Me and Dupree
Boring, annoying and so very 90s style comedy. Wasn’t expecting it to win an oscar but I was at least expecting it not to put me to sleep.
I didn’t like it.

300
I didn’t think there were enough fighting scenes and I also wish the fighting scenes were longer. The movie was visually stunning and there are a lot of memorable moments and quotes.
I liked it.

The Last King of Scotland
I wasn’t expecting to like this movie but it took me by surprise. The story is engaging and it never got boring. Forest Whitaker is such an amazing actor.
I liked it.

The Queen
I found this movie really slow, uneventful, unentertaining and a waste of time.
I didn’t like it.

Xbox Live

Post by Mark

I got an Xbox 360 last week and a few minutes ago I just finished playing Pro Evolution Soccer with some guy in Ecuador. It was my first time playing on Xbox Live and it was pretty cool talking and playing with someone who was all the way across the world. I thought it wasn’t possible to play online because of lag but I am on a 512KB Qualitynet connection and I didn’t have any problems.

Official pictures of the new redesigned Lexus LX are out and no surprise here, its UGLY. It looks pretty close to the Land Cruiser spy shots that were posted online previously. [Link]

Abenderado

Post by Mark

Found this old Abenderado commercial while flipping through YouTube. Anyone who watched any TV in Kuwait pre-1990 will surely remember this. If anyone can find me the old Hungry Bunny or Pizza Italia commercials I would be very grateful!
