iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Prices in Kuwait

September 22, 2013  |  Apple, iPhone

It seems that this post writes itself every year at around the same time.  While I sit here wait for my pre-ordered iPhone to ship and arrive safely in my hands, black market resellers are basically gauging out your pockets and bleeding you dry with the insane prices.  I was talking to a friend earlier today and heard that the prices have sky rocketed especially for the Goldpagne iPhone 5s which is now selling at 400 KD for the 16GB model which is pretty much a rip-off.

The best prices however that I have seen are with Mobile 2000 who have limited stock but are closer to the UK prices than ever, especially if you don’t factor in the shipping.

Something Has Got To Change

September 19, 2013  |  Random

Now that I’m actually writing more than I have this past year, I have pinpointed what was my problem (yes I choose to blame my laziness on something other than myself).  I think it’s time for me to get a face-lift.  This theme has worked nicely for the past three years but now I feel it’s time for me to get something new and awesome like myself.

I may have experienced some jealousy since Lujain’s new blog is quite awesome and feels light but I think I just want something new.  The only issue is that I’ve got two face-lift projects ahead of mine.  I can’t just drop them and start focusing on myself right?

Well let’s hope that I can actually finish them sooner and I’d be that much closer to a new design here.  Any pointers you’d like to share?  Things I should do? Things I should avoid? Do drop a comment and tell me your thoughts.  And tell me what you’re having trouble with here.

One thing I have to update is the pages and the data on those pages not to mention the widgets I’ve noticed that one of them is down and has been for a while, I should fix that.

Lujain is Back and Blogging About Middle School

September 19, 2013  |  Family

Middle School, that feels like ages ago! My little sister @LujainTalks started 6th grade a few weeks ago, and man does time fly by quickly! I can’t believe she’s a Middle-Schooler now it seems just yesterday she was starting Kindergarten and I was taking her to school (since I was unemployed at the time).  Both Lujain and I decided it was time she took blogging a bit more seriously but to not allow it to interfere with her studies.

LujainTalks

Lujain’s goal this year is to improve her writing skills, to share her experiences, and just to be a kid.  That’s the most important thing.  I remember starting 6th grade like it was yesterday (but a million years ago) I was scared at first but found that I fell in love with the freedom of being cooped up in one class.  You get to move around to your next class and you get to have new people with you in each class (no more getting stuck with the same 20 students in homeroom).

So, why don’t you all head on over there, read the little girl’s blog and be polite in your comments please.  Children should not be faced with the hatred and rude comments we adults are faced with.  Encourage her, share some of your childhood experiences with her.  And suggest stuff as well.

P.S. I gave her that cute little blog makeover because it was time and it feels more cool now! Don’t you think?

From Indie Beginnings to Film Stars: Where Were They Then?

September 18, 2013  |  Guest Writers

Today’s big stars are yesterday’s hungry indie actors. Do you know where the likes of such marquee film names like Jake Gyllenhal, Scarlett Johanssen and Ed Norton got their starts? The popular and ever-so dreamy Joseph Gordon-Levitt wasn’t always a hot commodity in the industry. All of these actors and actresses began their careers as extras, minor roles, and sometimes leading roles in underfunded low-lit independent films.

From Indie Beginnings

To see such A-list stars have such humble beginnings is always a rich sight to see. Some even have interviews of themselves reflecting on previous hits they had and where they are now like on Break videos and other various outlets to search celebrity interviews. It’s amazing to see how much they’ve changed as far as their perspective on Hollywood, their film choices in the past, and where they’d like to go in the future. Read on below to learn about the peculiar indie starts of a few of today’s biggest celluloid stars.

[Fall TV 2013 Preview] Trophy Wife on ABC

September 17, 2013  |  Fall TV 2013, Preview, TV

Late last week, we were given a glimpse into the new ABC sitcom called “Trophy Wife” which stars the beautiful Malin Ackerman and Bradley Whitford.  It’s a simple story one that is reminiscent of “Modern Family” but using a different equation.  ABC saw that the equation could work one more time and they could produce another hit, unfortunately for me it wasn’t that great, don’t get me wrong but something about the show just feels too tired but I will give it another shot with a few more episodes.  So let’s find out more.

[Fall TV 2013 Preview] We Are Men on CBS

September 16, 2013  |  Fall TV 2013, Preview, TV

Earlier today the pilot episode of “We Are Men” was made available on the internet for those of us who can’t wait until the actual premiere date.  To tell you the truth, I was skeptical when I read the “About Show” bit and thought this would definitely be one of the first shows to get cancelled.  Unfortunately it did not disappoint, while watching the pilot I felt sad and relieved at the same time because this would mean one less show to watch.  But enough about me, let me give you a glimpse into the show.
