Personal posts should make a come back here, I should bring them back.. I used to love sharing my thoughts out with the interweb space (yes I made that up, I think) and I think it’s time to bring it back. Ever since I got back from the States I guess I have been in a sort of hibernation, depression, sick mode which I am trying to get myself out of. I’ve also procrastinated a lot of things, I know some of you might not care what I write or anything about my life but my blog has always been MY outlet to express myself and I guess this is as good time as any to try to drag myself out of it.
I did a lot of cool things on my last trip to the States.. I went to New York and Las Vegas and boy did I have fun! Not to mention I didn’t actually want to come home (mainly because I liked the ‘semi-active’ lifestyle I led there). I used to walk everywhere I wanted to go (with the exception of a handful of times I used the Taxi only because it was either too late to walk home or the location was extremely far.
Depression hits me at odd times, mostly when I feel myself too sick to do something or just too plain lazy to do it. No I don’t think the laziness plays a part but something triggers it, I fight the ‘Debbie Downer’ feelings I get as often as I can but sometimes I end up staying a bit longer in bed or watching reruns of an old TV Show just to get out of my funk and it would help a bit. But thankfully I’m leading a good life (unemployed) but still good.
I guess that’s pretty much a small update as to the state of my mind.. What’s new with you? If you’d care to share, I’d be happy to listen (or read in this case).
P.S. A final update to the list will be released sometime around 2pm tomorrow if not a bit later.. Trying to get the final timings since a lot of networks CHANGED it completely :s Damn their bipolar timings!
[Updated (12/7/2013): Removed First Draft & Replaced with Final Version & PDF Files]
After 24 hours of staring at multiple screens filled with numbers, timings in GMT, in GMT +2, in any other time zone really and translating them all to one timing which is GMT +3 I can finally say that the “Ramadan TV List 2013” is here and ready to be downloaded by you freaks out there. This year I started out a bit late but I kind of like how I went all simplistic in the design. I am working on making an (iPhone-Friendly) version but that’s not complete yet (might be making it available as a separate website perhaps but not so sure yet).
You remember the drill this year? Last year many of you chose to steal this list and slap on your own watermark and call it your own, well I’d like to see you try again this year. The watermark is seriously all over the place and short of you being a magician and making it disappear I don’t think it’s possible. There are empty timing slots, and there are some shows with no timings at all on any network but that’s only because not all TV networks release their timings until the day of Ramadan. So for all intents and purposes this is a preliminary list until Thursday when I will be releasing an updated version.
Without further ado, here are the lists. Please link back and source where you got them from because I didn’t spend all this time browsing the newspapers, twitter accounts, forums, network websites, etc just to have you take away the credit and hard work I provided.
So in the next 24 hours I will be finalizing (read: starting to write) the Ramadan 2013 TV List. I know I’m a bit late this year, hell I’ve been procrastinating writing these past two months but that was because I was too busy living life to write (read: being too lazy to move my tush and access my blog from my numerous devices). Hopefully this year I will avoid the “copy-cats” and “thieves” who steal my list, although I would love to give you a nice Excel version of it, so you could remove what you don’t want and so forth but I doubt it’s possible (read: people will still actually steal it and stick their logos on it).
Once I am done with this year’s list then I will tackle on the important topics of actually sharing my thoughts with the world. And of course finishing the pending work (I know I know I’m late with stuff but give me a break :P) since I am still unemployeed and now I should have all the time in the world unless I am turning into a potato in front of the TV.
Anyways, let me get off this thing and actually write the beast! Toodles! Stay tuned!
Now that the Apple World Wide Developer’s Convention is over we can recap all the new good stuff that was announced by Tim Cook and his team of brilliant designers. Since I’m on vacation this post will be entirely condensed post with bullet points and more so I guess you will thank me for it in the end.
I have officially landed in New York City, and I can’t believe it really, especially since this trip was supposed to happen last February but being that I had to go have surgery I had it cancelled, now it’s hopefully going to be more fun and I will definitely have a blast! The weather is beautiful mashalla, rainy the day we arrived and cool and sunny the days afterwards. Let’s hope it stays that way!
One of my favorite things to do before travelling is definitely organizing my packing list, most of you have seen it on my Instagram account so I thought to share with those of you who wanted to save it to your computer and print it out later. I purchased it a couple years ago from American Eagle here in New York and I haven’t stopped using it since. It helps to double check.
Last week, Apple quietly discontinued the 4th generation iPod touches that were available online as well as in their retail stores and replaced them with a newer model. The newer model sports the iPod touch 5th generation design without a rear camera (which in most cases it’s rarely used, well not rarely so much).
The new model is available now for $229 in only one color (Black Front – Silver Back) and offers the same 4-inch display seen on the iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5th generation, as well as the same processor of the iPod Touch.
Your options now are:
- iPod Touch (No Rear Camera – Black/Silver Combo Only) 16 GB – 229$ [NEW]
- iPod Touch (5th Generation – Multiple Colors) 32GB – 299$
- iPod Touch (5th Generation – Multiple Colors) 64GB – 399$
The return of “Arrested Development” is set for May 26. Are you ready? The cult-classic comedy was canceled by Fox in 2006. Netflix is going to release 15 episodes of the show, all at one time that Sunday, encouraging viewing for Memorial Day. I was contacted by a lovely writer who wished to share her article about the show and she had prepared a Re-cap session for those of you who’ve seen it but haven’t caught up in a while, I personally bought the DVD series but haven’t watched it yet, I guess this weekend my job is to catch up on the first 3 seasons before tackling the 4th! So let’s see what April wishes to tell us today!
Let’s just recap:
The Show That Lost Everything
When “Arrested Development” aired in 2003, it may have been a few years ahead of its time, receiving minimal reception from Fox audiences. However, TV lovers fell to the shows charm and wit, not to mention the complexity of the characters, the story dynamic and the interwoven plot schemes. “Arrested Development” became the cult-classic show of the 2000 hype. But like other unique shows before it, such as David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks,” it wasn’t destined for a weekly format and an audience on a Big Five network. “Arrested Development” was canceled and fans were left wanting more.
