Kuwait’s ministry of information is back online

Posted in Internet, kuwait, Music, news, review, services, TV at 11:58 am by Salah

For a while now the MOI website of Kuwait was down for some adjustment I think. Now they are back in a very good shape.

I used to go to this website all the time, especially when I first came to the U.S. Even though Kuwait channels aren’t that interesting, you might want to take a peek at it.

The old website was boring, and didn’t have enough links and stuff. Now the website is filled with links and websites related to the TV and broadcasting, magazines, newspapers, radio stations and many other things. So even if you don’t want to watch KTV, you can find links for other stations like AL-RAI TV.

It’s worth a visit.

2nd episode LOST season 4

Posted in personal, TV at 10:52 am by Salah

Tonight they are airing the 2nd episode of season 4 LOST, and I can’t wait to watch it. I hate it when I have to wait for one episode every week. I used to watch the whole three seasons on DVD so I got to watch as many episodes as I like one after another.

What’s keeping me chill about it is that I have 24 season 5 and six on DVD and this is the show that’s taking over my life right now. I don’t even want to think about what would I do after finishing 24.

 Update: I just heard that LOST season 4 has only 7 episodes left!

Thanks Angelo.

10 items or less

Posted in personal, review, TV, USA at 11:42 am by Salah

 

I have been watching some episodes of “10 items or less” season two, and I think the show is ok. The reason I am saying the show is ok is because the first time I watched an episode for the show, I hated it a lot. I just couldn’t find the episode funny, but I thought that I might find it so when I watch more episodes. It happened to me a lot that I watch one episode of some show and I hate it, but then I start liking it when I keep watching the episodes. I think that what makes a show good is when you get to know the characters well enough.

That’s why now I am finding “10 items or less” a little bit more amusing than before. It still didn’t get me to the point where I want to keep up with every single episode.

So far the characters that I understood are:

Leslie, who is the manager and the owner of the grocery store where most of the show takes place.

I think that’s all what I got so far.

In an obnoxious Tuesday and a whole day stuck in school, Switzerland is the place I want to get away to.

Yahoo publishes “15 worst movie lines ever”

Posted in celebrities, funny, movies, TV tagged , , at 7:40 pm by Salah

So do you think you’ve noticed how bad these lines when you saw the movies?

I personally don’t see what is silly about some of the bad lines mentioned below. However, there are some of the lines that you really can’t help thinking how stupid it was.

THE MOVIE: Notting Hill (1999)

THE SCENE: Famous Hollywood actress Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) is attempting to convince bookish William (Hugh Grant) to give her another chance.
THE LINE: ”I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” Read the rest of this entry »

LOST season four premiere

Posted in celebrities, news, review, TV tagged , , , , , , , , , at 12:40 pm by Salah

Many people think that they are not interested in this show, and they think to themselves what is different about this drama show than any other show that has ever been made in history? Well, if you want one reason to kick your interest up a notch then read this:

LOST pilot episode premiered on September 22, 2004. As for the cost of the pilot episode, it was “the most expensive pilot in television history,[1] primarily due to the expense of purchasing, shipping, and dressing the actual decommissioned aircraft body used to represent the wreckage. It cost between $10 and $14 million.[2] Both parts of the pilot earned high ratings, and the episode would later win many awards.” (wikipedia.com)

Yesterday, Thursday January 31, was the day of the premiere for season four of the famous show LOST. The show was aired on ABC channel with an hour of a recap for the past seasons, and then the first episode of season four. The name of the episode was greatly chosen, and it was “the beginning of the end.”

If you have been watching LOST from the beginning then you already know how the episode works with all the flashbacks and then back to current. However, you would also know that the last episode of LOST season three started a back-flip with using flash-forwards instead of the flashbacks.

The new season continues with the flash-forwards and continues also with the current situation on the island. But this time LOST is going rapid with the action. You will notice how they are losing the slow-style they used to have on the previous episodes. Nevertheless, you will not lose the beautiful sense of LOST that kept you wanting to know what the hell is going on.

If you didn’t watch LOST before, then this is your perfect time to watch it, because this season is the season finale.

Update: season four is not the season finale, but season six is. Thanks Spicy Pepper.
