Fall TV Guide

TVMy very dear friend Abdullah over at Khaleejesque wrote an excellent and very thorough summation of the upcoming Fall TV shows. Featuring both new and returning shows, including everybody’s favorites (Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, Dexter, and many more). Here is the link to his article, and here’s a YouTube playlist I made of all of the mentioned shows’ promos, excluding 30 Rock, cause I couldn’t find a promo/trailer for the upcoming season.

Review: Brownies Delight

BrowniesI was going through my list of local blogs and found some of them (iLSuL6aNa, and Blushberry) posted about Brownies Delight, with the latter saying they’re the best and encouraging people to try them, so I did. What’s it like? It’s not good, but it’s not bad as well. I ordered them with very high expectations, and I was impressed with the packaging quality, it’s very neatly done, and very fresh when it arrived, but I was let down when I got to try them, they’re a bit dry and spongy. The best brownies in Kuwait are the ones from Choowy Goowy, Chocolate Bar (not all time, but they’re a hit sometimes) and Crumbs, although both of them aren’t THAT good. I have yet to have a tasty brownie in Kuwait, other than home made ones. I wouldn’t say don’t try it, but I won’t recommend it as well.

Change Is Gonna Come

SCHOOL BUS 2.jpgA few days ago, it hit me like a big yellow school bus, that this blog is MINE. I was keeping it for music/movies/tv strictly (well, almost), but there’s nothing that tells me that it’s all I should write about it. It’s my space, my place, I can write about anything I want, so therefor, forget the mostly-music orientation of the blog, and be ready to see much more. Of course music will still be dominant, because it is my passion after all, but there’s going to be more other exciting beginnings, and no endings to any of the posts you’re used to, and love.

For the heck of it:

“IT”

it2drevjpgWe’ve all been scared by Stephen King’s iconic clown. Yes, we had our turn, now it’s time for the kiddies of this time to have a taste. Yes, it’s being remade.
Obviously it won’t be as scary as the first one, because somehow movies these days just don’t have that “IT” factor (no pun intended). Anyways, here’s a quote:
“Inspired by the success of the Friday the 13th reboot, Warner Brothers has decided to remake Stephen King’sIt for the big screen. The 1990 version of It (that was actually made for TV) has often been referred to as one of the scariest movie of all-time. Lin Pictures and Vertigo Entertainment are developing this new version as a fresh adaptation from Stephen King’s original novel. Dave Kajganich, of The Invasion and Creek as well as the upcoming Pet Sematary remake, will write the script. These rights have been floating around Hollywood for a while, but it was Warner Brothers who decided to finally give it another chance.”

Review: The Fall

zapredelye2006x264bdripkinozaltv08007714-13-59I’ve seen many movies in my life, but I have never seen one so beautiful, it’s not the best movie, but it’s the best looking one. The scenery is breathtaking, the story is compelling to say the least, it’s definitely one of my favorite movies. It’s the kind of movie you’d want to watch over and over again to figure out the story well, and to have the beauty sink in, I urge you all to watch the movie, I have no idea why it wasn’t nominated for an Oscar for at least best cinematography. Watch it if you could get your pirating hands on a copy, or better yet, buy it. Check the images below to see how “heavenly” the photography is!

Review: Resident Evil 5

RE5
I haven’t finished the game yet, but played the first chapter, and it is FINE. It’s like a much better RE4. The graphics are nothing short of amazing, the controls as well. There really isn’t much for me to say at this point other than if you’re a fan, go get your hands on it, and get hooked. One bad thing about the game [from my perspective] is that it became more of a thriller-adventure type game, not horror. I used to get scared shitless when my big brother used to play the first one, and yes, I know I was younger, but still, this has lost the feeling of “horror”, but it still is a great game, and seems to have lots of re-playability value.

All I Ever Wanted is a 3.5/4 album according to the LA Times.

deluxe-edition While on the subject of Kelly Clarkson, her latest album, All I Ever Wanted has scored a 3.5/4 rating by the LA Times, here are some quotes from the review which can be fully read here:

Clarkson, ever the overachiever, has delivered on all counts. “All I Ever Wanted” is a masterful rapprochement with the mainstream, full of cheerfully ear-snagging tunes, inventive production, exhilarating vocals and enough inherent Kelly-ness to put aside fears that her label bosses implanted blond electrodes in her brain to make her behave.”

“The title track evokes the soul-rock fusions of Timbaland and Rihanna, while “Whyyouwannabringmedown” gives Clarkson a chance to howl the way she’s wanted to since her grunge-loving teen years.

“”All I Ever Wanted” also has a couple of the old-fashioned tear-jerkers that Clarkson does so well — “Cry,” which she cowrote, and songbird Keri Noble’s “If No One Will Listen,” which she produced — and an apparent Pink tribute song, “Don’t Let Me Stop You.””

“The album is a generous helping of the Kelly so many love — yes, Photoshopped and slicked up, but with her big, brilliantly accessible heart and voice intact.”

Review: It’s Not Me, It’s You – Lily Allen

Topping a best-selling debut album is one of the hardest things in the music industry, thus, many suffer the so-called “Sophomoric Slump”, but Lily has successfully managed to avoid just that. Not only is her new album far more superior to her debut album Alright, Still, it’s a masterpiece. While her first focused more on the Mark Ronson authentic sound, this leans more towards synths and electronica, the sound has definitely evolved, but not to the point of alienating fans. The lyrics are still witty and quirky. I have uploaded my favorite songs off the album. ‘Not Fair‘ which is surely a future single is quirky song with a catchy melody and memorable chorus that’s bound to have radio stations have it on loop. ‘I Could Say‘ which sounds alot like the version that leaked, is probably the most personal song on the album, think of it as the ‘Littlest Things’ of this album, but drown the latter in ice cold water and you’ll get ‘I Could Say’. ‘Never Gonna Happen‘ is my favorite song, and probably one of the best Lily did, the chorus is one of the most infectious ones I’ve heard in a while, very sing-a-long friendly. ‘Who’d Have Know‘, my second favorite song on the album, is a very relaxed song, and a nice change of pace throughout the album, the line “Even though it’s moving forward, it’s just the right amount of awkward, and today you accidently called me baybay” is my favorite for not reason other than the deliverance of the line. BUY the album, it’s very much worth your money, and alot more. 

Lily Allen:
Not Fair
I Could Say
Never Gonna Happen
Who’d Have Known
