Cultural trends: Brazenly gay music

Someone forwarded this to me, and it's a video clip by a gay pop singer called Adam Joseph, for a song he sings called-I kid you not- Faggotty Attention. This is a very interesting song, because it's a song detailing the arguments a gay guy would use to seduce a straight one. Which shows that [...]

Cultural trends: Techtonic dancing

I always knew that the moment will come when I will officially feel old, and that moment will be the moment the younger generation creates a dance that separates my generation from theirs. Sounds weird, measuring age with dancing, but I am telling you, it works. Every generation has a different way of dancing than [...]

Clooney in Jelly Beans

Roba will love this!

Speechlessly impressed

Watch as those 3 graphic designers recreate D-Day using nothing for Budget. I am speechless. I am also officially unimpressed with every Graphic designer I know now. Bunch of Know-Nothing hacks.

Poor Matt Dillon

I suspect, after reading this, that he will never ever visit the Cairo International Film Festival again.

The New Joker

  Ok..Ok.. I've had my doubts that Heath Ledger might be able to pull it off, but I see where they are going with this. Why isn't he laughing though? What's the Joker without his grin? 

Teeth

Now here is a story that will give Men nightmares for years!

McDonalds wishes you a happy Eid

Charboiled

I have to say that I love Kabobfest's review of The Kingdom. I mean, how could you not love the rantings of grad-students who berate actors for wasting "credit" gained in starring "progressive" films and manage to quote Noam Chomsky in the same breath? I ain't got nothing on those guys!

Spiderman- The Musical

My danger senses are tingeling and they are telling me that this should be a major shitfest!

Punk Islam Rocks!

I don't know if any of you is familiar with Michael Muhammad Knight 's Book, the Taqwacores , but it is a book I have been reading for a while, and it's really interesting. It envisions an America where Punk Islam exists, where Niqabi girls sing " I wanna fuck you like an animal" and [...]

Stand-up Cairo

Cairo is a comedy cow and we’re milking it. Stand Up Cairo is reviving the lost art of Egyptian stand up comedy. We will be holding auditions on the 15/16 April from 6-10 pm during which talented individual performers will be invited to perform a two – five minute skit of original material in Arabic [...]

My vohhhk turned into ahhhhhht

I don't know how I feel about this: Apparently my agonizing post on sunday's protest is turning into a piece of musical theathre, played tonight at 7 pm at the Sphinx agency, by this swiss artist couple. This is how they intend to perform it. I am not sure whether I am offended or flatterd, [...]

Bush, Rumsfeld, Rice in an arab Pop Video

This is soo stupid you just gotta see it! The person who sent it to me wrote: " See what Pan-arabism has come to!"

Paulo Coelho sucks…

I always said he sucked. I would even offer to summarize his book, the alchemist, in 4 sentences. 1) A boy is chilling in the desert with nothing to do, so he decides to go look for the treasure in Egypt, 2) Upon arriving there, he meets the wise man and asks him about the [...]

J.T. is the new King of POP?

Well, there seems to be no one else wanting the title , or so reports the Onion!

The anti-Hijabi blacklist

Another Al Arabiya jem: There has been lots of contreversey regarding veiled actresses in egyptian society, specifically because those women when they first got veiled made sure to tell the entire world how they are quitting acting because it's a sin and haram and how now they found the light and the way and are [...]

Droooolllll

Just watch!

The Khazakhistan government is humorless

If it isn't bad enough that the President of Kazakhistan is so irked by the Borat movie that he wants to discuss it with President Bush when he comes to the states, now the State of Khazakhistan is making its own movie. It's called Nomad and it will cost them $40 million dollars, which i [...]
