Adagio For Strings

Acid Night Club - Sin el Fil - Lebanon...... It was a night i can never forgot ... The night i reached my Nirvana.... The night i had my extacy .... I was already filled with alcohol, the bunch of us me and my friends were dancing crazy. Everyone in the club were equal, no males no females, no gays no lesbians, no transexuals, everyone was simply enjoying the music and letting out all their week's frustrations. I am a big fan for anything electronic.... the base banging in the large club hall and echoing off the walls.... the sweat covering everyone ... the look in everyone's eyes, the smiles on their face.... All variables of an equations that helped me reach my extacy.... Alive was fading out, Adagio for strins was fading in ..... i couldn't help but standing still... the base was beating and a creepy shill crept along my spine.... the hair on the back of my neck stood .... everyone were jumping, screaming and laughing... a smile drew on my face watching everyone around me. At that moment i was one with the music. I felt every vibe, every twitch every single thing around me was going through me .. i was emersed in my surrounding ... we all became one... One huge living, breathing creature having fun. It was a feeling of pure hapiness... sheer joy .... no worries just happiness.... people spend fortunes on drugs to reach this feeling, but there i was after spending the last of my 30$ on a tequilla shot , there i was feeling and embracing exctasy ..... It felt as long as a life time... In reality it was just a matter of seconds .... a couple of seconds that i will hold dear to my heart forever. Never will i be in that situation again , you might say i can go again to the same club with the same people, listen to the same music and live that feeling.... I Can't ... how do i know i can't say... But the difference is that i got to have that feeling... even if it was for once ......... Party On People!!!! Embrace the good things in life, and dun care what others may say or think of u.

PacManhatten

A friend at work recommended this link and told me to go and check it out, oh my god was it interesting. My all time favourite childhood game of the 80's Pacman ... Is being reincarnated by real people in Manhatten. This project is being developed by NYU's interactive telecommunications graduate program, to explore what happens when you take the games you see on your screens and transfer them into real life. 5 players are used in this game of pacman who are dressed as pacman and 4 ghosts, each player is associated with a controller who has a view of the map and coordinates with the player on where he should go next via cellphone. Players relay their position back to HQ and their controller to update game progress. For more information [link]

In Rome do as the Romans do

Listening to : Acid Jazz- One Starry Night (Funk's Drum n Bass kettle Version) Quote: If a problem has a solution you don't have to worry, if a problem doesn't have a solution then there is no need worrying. Life in Kuwait, well what can i say. So far things have been going ok, i slipped into the routine everyone has slipped to before me. I wake up everyday at 7:00 AM between having a shower, wearing my cloth and grabbing some quick sips of Nescafe and quickly burning a cigi i head to work to later than 7:45 AM, I arrive there at about 8:15 people are telling me that when schools start i will arrive much later, so i'm gonna have to wake up earlier. I enjoy the drive to work, it is soothing and relaxing i can simply doze off anywhere i want to really. By the way there are a lot of hot women on Gulf Road in the morning;) this keeps me from getting bored. Work officially starts at 8:30 but i like to come early i hate hearing anything from anyone about punctuality or anything else like this..... I go in make myself a cup of Nescafe, hook my laptop to the network .... and start checking out my favourite sites, and downloading the new webcomics. at about 9:00 AM work officially starts and from that time till like 1:00 PM i am overwhelmed with work and simply i can't go about doing anything else. At 1:00 it is the usual lunch and well browsing the godness that is the company's servers, strange things u find on there, old mp3's funny movies, pictures, and get this before the company was connected to the net employees used to write word documents and leave them for each other on the server...... Everyday i explore a new thingie.... Well after lunch at 2:00 that is .... work will continue again until 5 PM where i simply pack everything up and drag myselft home.... Once home there is nothing i can really do.. i am to tired to go out, to tired to concentrate on reading, i used to read a lot but right now i can't seem to get myself to finish a book. The only thing i can do is either turn on the PS2 or Desktop PC to play games or ..... Watch TV. Then when my parents come back from there work, we simply have dinner, watch a movie or some TV talk with each other and we all go to sleep.... I need friends lol.... but you got me there, how is it possible to meet new people and getting friends if i work from 9 to 5 every single day, and even if i manage to drag myself after 5 to go sit somewhere or anythin, Kuwait simply ain't Lebanon i can't simply go talk with someone, cos unlike Lebanon where the worst thing happening is her telling me no, it might cause a big scene or something.. I hope this problem is solved soon:S Life .... is a journey ..... Journey my ass :D

BLEACH

Everybody wonders what happens after death and pass on to the after life. Will we find heaven, hell, will we be reincarnated or will there be nothing just emptiness. In Bleach death grants its owner entrance to soul society, a peaceful society where people can start a new life. People with grave sins and unfinished business remain floating in our world unseen by many until they are consumed by the reason they are stuck there and then turn into hollows (fallen spirits) which feed on the innocent souls of others.

Ichigo Kurosaki is a 15 year old boy with an attitude, and the ability to see ghosts. This brings trouble one day when he meets a Death God (SHINIGAMI) named Kuchiki Rukia who has the task of hunting hollows. During the confrontation the shinigami’s powers are transferred to Ichigo. Because Rukia needs to wait for a fair amount of time before her powers return to her, she recruits Ichigo on a mission to her hollows as well as other spiritual beings.

I hate IPOD

I never quite fully understood all the fuss about the IPOD (Yay a truckload of GB mp3 player). After the first IPOD different versions came out with various storage capacities ranging from 4GB to 40 GB i think. Sure the design is cool and sleek, i prefer the U2 special edition Black and Red IPOD. But come on people, all you need is a shuffle. Who is gonna listen to 40 GB worth of music. The 512 MB Shuffle can hold up to 240 songs, thats 12 hours of continous random song playing. Who is going to listen to music for 12 hours in a row..... And then if you get bored with your song selection simply plug it in and download different songs. Very simple. If you want to listen to music simply buy a shuffle, if you want to look fancy buy the rest lineup. The new Ipod Nano i agree is very hot and sleek, and with more than enough capacity to give it's owner more than enough storage to listen to his/her preferred songs. People be practical.... spending almost 350$ on 40 GB Hardisks with an mp3 built to them.... ripp off. ps: Just for the sake of not being flamed or bashed by MAC fanatics, mp3's from all different manufacturers are targeted by this post.
