Random: Weird Plastic Surgeries

The days of Liposuction, nose-jobs, facelifts..etc. are over! Plastic Surgeries evolved over the past years, you’ll see some surgeries that’ll wow you!

a228_tonguejpgFirst, we have this snake-tongue surgery that basically split the tongue with laser to create the image above, nasty.

a228_dogsjpgDog face-lift! Now that’s disturbing, poor dog!

ob-at301_health_20071030131120jpgThe 6-packs suction. This is basically liposuction but is more focused on the fat between the skin and the packs. The results are weird, and not in a good way.

0jpgElf-ear!!! Why? Why would anyone undergo a surgery to make their ears elf-like? I don’t get it!

prenatal-plastic-surgeryjpgReady? Plastic surgeries from INSIDE THE WOMB?? The baby isn’t even born yet, what kinda fuckery is this?

Gadgets: Fash-bot


Fashion bot, that is. Models are out, HRP-4C’s are in! Japan, the fastest fast-forwarding country in the world, has develpoed this female robot that’s suited primerly for fashion runways. “The she-bot features 30 motors spread throughout its body with an additional eight motors in its face for expressing general boredom and disgust”-Engadget. It’s goes for $200,000, pretty cheap for a freakshow on a runway, eh? check the video for extra creepiness.

Snoop Dogg, a Muslim.

snoopdoggHe now is a muslim, reports BBC News. He said that by signing up to the religion he was “doing what’s right and representing what’s right. I’m an advocate for peace, I’ve been in the peace movement ever since I’ve been making music”. Although he only made his religious beliefs public at the event, the rapper suggested that he had been signed up for a while.
“I’m already in the Nation, that’s why I’m here,” he said. Aww, if only he stopped being a pothead.

Song Of The Day

asalaSong: Rawweh Ou Rouh/Egrib Gireeb
Artist: Asalah
Album: Sawaha Galbi/Awgat
In short: Arabic music for today. Asalah is one of the middle east’s best vocalists, her voice depth is crazy. Those two songs were released on different albums, but one is the “antithesis” of the other. The first “Rawweh Ou Rouh” (Go Away) is of course a break-up song, but notice the instrumental and the melody, for it’s almost the same on the second song “Egrib Gireeb” (Come Closer), which of course is a “make-up” song, it was a smart move of hers to have them both sound alike for more impact. For almost a week I have been in a full-swing arabic music mood. Enjoy these songs, even if you’re not speaking the language.

Asalah:
Rawweh Ou Rouh
Egrib Gireeb
