I can’t believe we are welcoming December yet again in our lives, it’s always been and will always be my favorite month out of the year regardless of what happens. It happens to be my birth month and when winter ‘should’ start in most countries. In a few short days we will be saying good bye to 2013 and Hello to 2014, and call me crazy but I am a fan of even numbered years (although I was born in an odd number year) and I always have a feeling good things will happen.
November has been a great month for me, I travelled to New York, I met Zachary Levi (in person), Steve Wozniak, and many more. I bought my beloved iPad Air and iPad mini retina (well both were given as birthday gifts from my loved ones) and just had the time of my life. I felt light and full of life and humor and I hope this will continue onwards to December. I really do want to keep up to date with my blog but I just find something stopping me from doing that. What I have yet to discover, I probably need to go into therapy for that (not my Apple Obsession) just to figure out why I get writer’s block when I come near a computer, or the fact that I choose to watch my TV Shows rather than do anything else hehe. Also, online shopping therapy, that needs to be discussed as well.
So to December, I say bring it, and to the next three days before my birthday, I say GIFT WRAP EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING AND JUST SEND IT TO ME, I do enjoy birthday cards and the wrapping more than anything else :P
Last Wednesday, November 20th I was invited by the kind people of Event Mania & Local Flavor to attend the premiere preview show of Pilobolus’s Shadowland. This award winning show presented by an American Modern Dance Company has made Kuwait its first stop in their Middle East tour.
Going into the show, which was located in the Ice Skating Rink (could we just stop using the Ice Skating Rink as a venue for everything.. It’s cold even if they melt some of the ice and it just isn’t insanely comfortable). The invite mentioned we would be attending a Premiere show, which I thought meant seeing the entire deal but unfortunately we were just given glimpses into the show by witnessing four small acts.
Some of these new show pick ups will come as a shock to others such as “Dads” (which in my opinion should’ve been cancelled a while back) and some might not surprise you such as “The Originals” but it’s news for the most part along with some veteran show renewals and cancellations. So if you’re a TV Show junkie like I am, then you’ll find the below information quite interesting.
“DADS” is a new multi-camera comedy about two successful guys in their 30s who have their lives turned upside down when their nightmare dads unexpectedly move in with them. Starring Seth Green (Family Guy) as Eli and Giovanni Ribisi (My Name is Earl) as Warner who are lifelong best friends and co-founders of Ghost Child Games, a successful video game company. Vanessa Lachey (as Camila) Martin Mull (as Crawford – Warner’s Dad) and Peter Riegert (as David – Eli’s Dad) also star. I personally found the show offensive sometimes and just too much of a cliche to continue watching but it is a distraction so proceed at your own risk.
Geeks, gamblers and gamers: get rid of your gear. No, seriously, do it.
If you’re a part of the gaming community who all want the best laptops for what online gaming has to offer, you might want to think about trading in, and upgrading.
There are at least four crucial areas that a highly-functional gaming laptop should perform reliably in — speed, portability, looks, and extra functions. It’s the Usain Bolt-meets Sports Illustrated model-meets MIT geek package deal that all gamers want.
What you choose can depend on what you like more, however. Bigger screens mean less portability. Lots of memory means you’ll need a strong battery life and good memory storage. Because there is no perfect laptop (yet), settling on one laptop that does something really well might mean you sacrifice something else that isn’t as superior.
