Sweet & Geeky Marriage Proposal

In one way or another, we are all geeks. Sometimes we hide our “geekness” so efficiently that nobody can ever detect it, and sometimes we proudly show it to the world. Consider those couples at an anime convention, in which the guy proposed to the girl on stage in front the judges and attendance of the convention. It is so sweet, yet so geeky.

Palestinians Want Peace With Israelis

One of the worst western hypocrisies (specifically in the western media) toward the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is that Israelis want peace more than Palestinians, and that Palestinians usually want to wage war with Israel instead of peaceful processes. However, the recent Gallup polls beg to differ.

The overwhelming majority of Palestinians want peace with Israelis. Only Hamas supporters reject it in large numbers (but nearly by half). Not only that, the support for peace had increased since 2006 as the latest poll shows. Click HERE for detailed report.





Another poll showed that both Palestinians and Israelis favor nonviolent solutions. Click HERE for the report. However, I find the following poll quite scary:


I hope President Bush’s promise that both nations will achieve peace by the end of the year will come true, but just like his past acclaims, the probability for that is highly unlikely.

Having Sex With Robots

I think the most positive thing from having sex with robots is that you will never have to deal with unexpected pregnancy.

Update: Youtube (as always) has removed the video. Click HERE to watch the clip.

The Sex List Game


A very short, yet hilarious sketch from Very Angry Neighbors comedy group. It seems not everyone knows how to play this game. 


The video above is a short experimental film created and directed by my cousin who is currently studying film major in Southern Illinois University; he’s one of the few Kuwaiti students studying film major abroad. It’s short but that was one of the many requirements the instructor has given, including that the film project should be directed by one person. Personally, I think it is well made, and the mood perfectly captures the subject of the film. The guy you see in the film is not by cousin but one of his colleagues, and I think he did a good job (well he didn’t have to do anything but to sleep). My cousin wishes to become a prominent director and his dream goes international, because he doesn’t see the Khaliji Cinema will pay him attention or gives him the opportunity to create his films; I agree wholeheartedly. I really admire his ambitions, and who knows, maybe you will see his name in the future in some movie. He’s currently a sophomore, so there will be more film projects to be made and that means more encouragement and moral support from me. Hang in there Azooz!

Q: I didn’t understand the movie, what is it about?

A: Well it’s an experimental film, so dialogue and drama aren’t necessarily the elements of the movie but the ability to capture the essence of the subject shown, and the subject here is REM sleep (or Rapid Eye Movement). Generally, dreams are manifestation of events and thoughts that occurred prior to sleeping, and the man shown in the movie is having a REM sleep from watching too many mainstream media. Later, the man is shown to wake up in a middle of the nature where everything is real, not fabricated by humans. He takes his time to feel and listen to the nature, to the “real world”. Finally, the man wakes up from his dream and instantly looks to the window before doing anything else, as he reassures himself that the true real world is out there somewhere.

Square Enix Online Shop

It is safe to say that I am one of the biggest fans of Square-Enix, and I probably consume any videogame they throw at me without hesitation. Recently, they opened their US division of their online shopping store, and I have to say, it is packed with tons of Final Fantasy goodness. Their accessories are disturbingly similar to the items found in Final Fantasy universe such as rings, pendants, and swords. Some of them are reasonably priced; others however can devour your credit card very fast. If you are an avid fan of Final Fantasy, this store is for you.

Run Like Mario


Am I a geek for wanting those snickers so bad? (Don’t answer the question). Regardless of how they look, those snickers are a top-notch running shoes made by Run Athletics. They implemented their famous Legacy model on these Super Mario shoes and make them suitable for joggers and runners alike. Unfortunately, they are only being sold in Nintendo World Center in New York City. Though, you might have a good chance to buy them for a hefty price at Ebay. However, don’t expect to run, jump, and somersault your way like Mario; those moves can only preformed by the King of Platform himself.
