Bahranian Sheikh suing Michael Jackson

Posted in celebrities, Music, news at 8:45 pm by Salah

Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa paid $7 million as a loan (I guess) to Michael Jackson’s Album and production that never saw the light; and now he is suing the king of pop for not paying him back. Michael, however, is saying that the money was a gift and not a lawn.

I remember hearing that Michael Jackson has a friend who is a sheikh at Bahrain; and that was one of the reasons why Michael Jackson moved to Bahrain for a while.

Here is the link.

Kuwaiti TV figures’ original nationalties

Posted in celebrities, funny, kuwait, Music, TV at 5:02 pm by Salah

Here is a fun post I found online on one of the forums. Even though the statements seems so true, it did not come from a credible source.

جناسي ممثلين و ممثلات الكويت, و لكن المعلومات ليست مصدقة و قد تكون غير صحيحة. الا ان بعض المعلومات انا شخصيا سمعت عنها كثيرا الى حد اني صدقتها, مثل بو شهري جنسيته ايراني.

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.

Screen Actors Guild Awards

Posted in celebrities, movies, Music, news, occasions, TV tagged , , , , , at 12:42 pm by Salah

Yesterday TBS aired the Screen Actors Guild Awards for 2008.

I was so interested to watch the ceremony because there were many actors and actresses that I like. Of course my DVR screwed me up by not recording the whole thing, but I got to watch some of the main things that I wanted to watch. There were shows and people that I never knew before or didn’t know them very well, and there were my favorite actors and shows. So my judgments is only based on my own knowledge and perceptions.

I was disappointed to see Steve Carell lose the “Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series award” to Alec Baldwin,’30 Rock.’

However, “The Office” team won the “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.” The strange thing is that the spokesperson the chose for the award was Jenna Fischer (Pam). It should have been Steve Carell (Michael). Well, she wasn’t bad anyway.

You can check out the whole award news and winning list and more on this [link].

Human-Beatboxing’s king

Posted in art, celebrities, Music, talent at 12:26 pm by Salah

This is Roxorloops the human-beatboxer. There is also another two videos when you click “read the rest of the post.” To the people who have no idea what is human-beatboxing, it is the art of producing beatboxing and tones from the mouth. I first saw that kind of art by coincidence, but then I started to get really interested in these stuff that now I’m looking for battles between champions.

Roxorloops, who is from Belgium, is so far my favorite beatboxer. It is amazingly one of the most interesting talents that I have ever seen.

Here’s two parts of Roxorloops’ video rocking on stage! Read the rest of this entry »

I found this amazing video on youtube a while ago for abdulhaleem being annoyed by the audience. This is the first time I see Abdulhaleem, or any old Arab celebrity react so real.

تقبل الله طاعتكم و عيدكم مبارك

Posted in kuwait, Music, occasions, personal at 2:07 pm by Salah

بعد انقطاع طويل عن البلوج و عن كتابة المواضيع ابي اقولكم اني أعتذر على هالتأخير.

و أتمنى ان الكل يكون مستمتع بلحظات الفرح في عيد الفطر السعيد.

و هذه اغنية اهداء مني حقكم. هالأغنية بس أسمعها أتذكر أول يوم عيد الصبح مع التجهيز والاستعداد حق السلام والترحيب بالأهل والأصحاب.

والدشداشة اليديدة اللي امس مطلعها من الخياط مكوية و جاهزة معلقة ورا الباب. و الغترة أيضا جاهزة, و ريحة العطور والبخور ودهن العود.

الديرة كلها كاشخة و متسنعة والجو ولا أحلى, والناس كلها مستانسة.

كل هذا صورة تدش براسي لمن أسمع هالأغنية و غيرها من أغاني العيد القديمة بالذات.

عيدكم مبارك و كل عام و انتوا بخر والله يعوده عليكم بالخير والصحة والسلامة.

صبحكم الله بالخير

Posted in Music, personal at 11:43 am by Salah

جرت العادة ان الصبح أقعد عالساعة 9:30 او 10:00

أفتح التلفزيون على قناة discovery travel

و يكونون حاطين برنامج Great Hotels with Samantha Brown

الشمس تسطع داخل شقتي, و القهوة موجودة, وفيروز تغرد باللابتوب والتلفزيون مليء بالمناظر الحلوة اللي تحسسني كأني مسافر.

اليوم وانا قاعد بهالأجواء الحلوة, قلت ليش ما اشارك القراء بهالجو. يالله قلت ألقالكم اغنية حلوة من فيروز و أعيشكم شوية بالجو اللي أنا عايش فيه.

مع تحياتي و تحيات فيروز
