Concepts >> Compact Gadgets

This mouse concept makes it easy and compact to carry around a full-size mouse. The device itself is fairly simple: a small flexible board carries all of the circuitry while the body is composed of plastic that can be blown up manually.When not in use, it can be folded into a compact size or slid between the screen and keyboard of your laptop when closed.

Designer Jean Louis Frechin presents a concept (Waaz) of speakers disguised as shelf supports. 'Waaz is a shelf connected to a computer that doubles as a device for audio diffusion and archiving digital music files (MP3)'. It looks pretty slick, and with wireless connection it is a practical concept for sure.

Music >> JUNO >> Cute Ugly People

In celebration of Juno OST climbing to #1 on the Billboard Album chart this week, I am posting five of my favorite songs off the soundtrack. It is the first from an Academy Award best picture nominee since 1998 "Titanic" to reach the summit. The soundtrack is a nice collection of sweet and quirky indie and rock songs from Belle & Sebastian, the Kinks, Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches), Velvet Underground and others. Honetsly, I don't like all the songs but the good ones more than makeup for the duds. I am glad that Belle & Sebastian's 'Piazza, New York Catcher' is getting exposure on this soundtrack as it is my favorite B&S song, and their 'Expections' is underrated and beautiful. The stand out track is 'Anyone Else But You' perfomed by actors Ellen Page and Michael Cera. I prefer it to The Moldy Peaches rendition but I included both.

"We sure are cute for two ugly people.."

Michael Cera & Ellen Page - Anyone Else But You
Belle & Sebastian - Expectations
Belle & Sebastian - Piazza, New York Catcher
Kimya Dawson - So Nice So Smart
The Moldy Peaches - Anyone Else But You

Hidden Gem >> If You Forget Me

If You Forget Me is a rare Madonna gem composed of her spoken-word reading of a Pablo Neruda poem with oriental beats and the infamous Erotica line 'Give it up, do as I say. Give it up and let me have me way'. The beauty of the poem combined with the hypnotic beats and Madonna's unmistakable voice result in an amazing piece of art/music. It is very similar to the style of Justify My Love - The Beast Within mix, which is my all-time Madonna favorite mix.


>> Madonna - If You Forget Me [zShare]
>> Madonna - The Beast Within [zShare]

If You Forget Me >> I want you to know one thing >> You know how this is >> If I look at the crystal moon >> At the red branch of the slow autumn at my window >> If I touch near the fire the impalpable ash >> Or the wrinkled body of the log >> Everything carries me to you >> As if everything that exists - aromas, light, metals >> Were little boats that sail toward those isles of yours that wait for me >> Well, now >> If little by little you stop loving me >> I shall stop loving you >> Little by little >> If suddenly you forget me >> Do not look for me >> For I shall already have forgotten you >> If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life >> And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots >> Remember >> That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms >> And my roots will set off to seek another land >> But if each day, each hour, you feel that you are destined for me >> With implacable sweetness >> If each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me >> Ahh my love, ahh my own, in me all that fire is repeated >> In me nothing is extinguished or forgotten >> My love feeds on your love, beloved >> And as long as you live, it will be in your arms without leaving mine.

Arab Aquarius Edits an Unfaithful Bad Girl

I have this habit of editing some long mixes by choosing the hot bits that I like so they can fit on an audio CD and listen to it in my friend's car when we go out (her player plays audio only). I love mixes, but at certain times you want a short & sweet edit with the good bits. Below are two edits I have made of two hot Rihanna mixes. The original Unfaithful mix is [9:11 min] and the Good Girl Gone Bad original Soul Seekers mix is [6:35 min]; my edits are [3:19 min] and [4:53 min], respectively.


(Sorry links are taken down)

>> Rihanna - Unfaithful (Tony Moran Arab Aquarius Club Edit) 
>> Rihanna - Good Girl Gone Bad (Soul Seekers Arab Aquarius Edit) 

Let me know in the comments if want me to post the full length remixes. Also if you like these and want more Rihanna edits (I already have Shut Up & Drive, Cry, Questions Existing, Breakin' Dishes & Don't Stop the Music mix edits) leave a comment requesting which one you want me to post.

P.S. Feel free to share the files on your blog but include credit and a link to this blog please.

Kylie Video >> In My Arms + Wow

They are out! Both of them!

Kylie's new video for my favorite upbeat song off her X album, In My Arms. It's fun, futuristic and very stylish with ultra cool glasses and weird outfits. Couldn't have been better.

DOWNLOAD >> Four hot In My Arms remixes in my previous post here

As expected, Wow's video was released right on the heels of In My Arms. This simultaneous release is because Wow is the current single in UK and Australia while In My Arms is chosen for the rest of Europe. I can't say which video I like more, I like the style and avant-grade outfits and look of Arms and I like the choreography and the dancing guys with robot heads (ala Daft Punk) of wow. Well, why not like both!

Burger in a Can!

Just today I was in the supermarket and saw a small carton in the frozen food section that looked like a froozen burger, upon further inspection it turned out to be 4 slices of burger meat and my dreams of fast burger at home were shattered. So I was elated to discover this Burger in a Can. Even better! Out on a picnic outdoors and want a burger? Easy. Open a can (with an easy handle!) and vouila, there's your burger! Though I doubt it will look the same as the picture they use.

Heath Ledger >> Final Portrait

Melbourne artist Vincent Fantauzzo put the finishing touches on his painting of Heath Ledger at his Docklands studio the day before the star was found dead in his NY apartment. Ledger sat for Fantauzzo on his last visit home to Perth, Australia in December. Fantauzzo painted Ledger with the intention of entering the portrait in the prestigious Archibald Prize later this year. But the newly finished work got an early showing, when, with the approval of the Ledger family, Fantauzzo released the image to the media. The painting depicts the notoriously private actor as three separate images. The central, and largest, image is of Ledger, bare-chested, looking straight ahead, appearing pained and exhausted. The two background images are of Ledger wearing humorous expressions, whispering into the ears of his foreground image.

Snoop vs. Robyn >> Sexual Eruption

This is my third post about Robyn in the first month of this blog. But how can I not post this? Robyn teamed up with Snoop Dogg on a rework of his 'Sensual Seduction / Sexual Eruption' song and the resulting duet is AMMMMMAZING. I am not big on Snoop songs but this is it! Get it while it's hot! Some are calling it Fyre Department Remix, but I am not sure yet what the official name is.

Video >> Darren Hayes >> Casey

Darren Hayes just released the video for third single 'Casey' from his double album 'This Delicate Thing We've Made'. I swear that album has enough good songs for a dozen of singles! The video is directed by Damian Hale of Onedotzero and shows Darren driving a yellow car in a retro-looking racing game. The song is about his childhood with his sister Casey and how he used to go for rides and listen to music with her in her old yellow car. A great tune about childhood memories and sibling bond. Watch the video and download the song below.

Driving in your car >> With the windows down >> And the beat up stereo >> Struggle with this town >> Cuz you love to hate it >> But hate it to let it go >> And we're all alone >> And so tired of being underrated >> So don't take me home >> Cuz I feel alive when you come and save me >> In a yellow car >> We don't even have to go far >> Cuz that song you're playing sounds like peace on the radio >> And Casey when you go >> Can you come and find me >> Wanna be beside you when you leave this town >> I've been waving goodbye >> Pretending not to cry >> I want to be someone >> If you take me away >> All the pain will change >> Into a memory >> Of when we were amazing

You're Wow Wow Wow Wow

Update: I added the F*ck Me I'm Famous David Guetta mix!

I felt bad posting mixes for In My Arms (see here) and neglecting current single Wow. Actually, In My Arms was supposed to be the current single but after Kylie performed Wow on the X-Factor and people started downloading it, her label decided to switch.

As the name suggests, it is a fun camp guilty-pleasure. Don't expect deep lyrics, the hook goes 'You got it, You're Wow Wow Wow Wow'. The CSS (from iTouch commercial, 'Music is My Hot Hot Sex' fame) mix is fun, fast and doesnt steer away from the original. MSTRKRAFT on the other hand, infuse it with hot beats, looping the 'rhythem when you're dancing, you know you're made in heaven' part and turn it into a proper banger. Finally, the Fuck Me I'm Famous mix is utterly and completely fantastic. David Guetta can do no wrong! The action starts at the 1:08 min mark.

>> Kylie - Wow (Radio Mix)
>> Kylie - Wow (CSS Mix) [3:17 min]
and the best mix is:
The F*ck Me I'm Famous remix is by David Guetta & Joachim Garraud

The official video is set to debut January 30, Miss Minogue recently filmed it along with the future video for In My Arms in LA, California. Till then we can enjoy her fun performance of Wow on The Kylie Show TV special from November 2007.

Too Late to Apologize?

Apologize has hit oversaturation and most people are sick of it by now. BUT I have finally traced the person who made the stunning video. No, not the official (boring) video. This video was made by Aaron Platt on December 2006 just to promote his editing skills and garner attention. Yes, 2006!!! If you havent watched this video, you must. Below is the video he made using the original raw One Republic song; if you prefer watching this same video but with the Timbaland produced audio you can watch it HERE.

New Mix >> Erase/Rewind 2008

The Cardigans are one of my all time favorite bands. Most known for LoveFool the 'love me, love me, say that you love me. Fool me, fool me, go on and fool me' Romeo + Joliet soundtrack song. Kleerup, the featured artist on Robyn's smash With Every Heartbeat (see my previous post here) are releasing a new 2008 Cardigans remix of 'Erase/Rewind' (a #7 UK hit) from 1998 Gran Turismo album. A 10 year anniversary I guess. The dark kleerup beats combined with Nina's bittersweet vocals make for a hot hot mix!

Scarlett Johansson >> Summertime

Scarlett is launching her singing career in a few months. I came across this song 'Summertime' that she did for the 2006 benefit album 'Unexpected Dreams: Songs from the Stars' . And it was unexpected indeed to find myself loving her bluesy voice. The video below is made with clips from Lost in Translation. I think she might surprise us with a great album.

Ewan McGregor, Jennifer Garner, Jeremy Irons, John Stamos, Lucy Lawless, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Teri Hatcher among others also sing on the album. You can listen to audio samples here.

>> Only

So I changed the blog's template back to one of Blogger's defaults. I used images from the music video for Only by Nine Inch Nails for the banner, and images from their latest album YearZero on the sidebar.

In addition to being one of the best rock songs of the last decade imo ( staying at #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart for seven weeks in 2005), Only's superb visuals take it to another level. How to make a kick-ass video? Simply get David Fincher to direct it. Yes, the same David who directed some of the best movies of late (Se7en, Fight Club, Alien, Panic Room, Zodiac, The Game). Only is the ONLY music video David has directed since 2000 and the second since 1996. What music videos has he directed before? Oh, just some of the infamous pop videos of the 80s and 90s including Madonna's (Vogue, Express Yourself, Oh Father, Bad Girl), Michael Jackson's (Who is it?), Paula Abdul's (Straight Up, Cold Hearted, Forever Your Girl), Aerosmith (Janie's Got A Gun)....

Ok back to Only. The video relies almost entirely on CGI created by Digital Domain (the Academy Award winning company that did Titanic effects) showing various objects in an office coming to life with the propulsion of the song. The main focus is Trent Reznor's face appearing on the novelty Pin Art that sits on the desk. The only non-CGI components of the video are a person's hand (Fincher's) and a bowl of green apples.

Nine Inch Nails - Only (video)

Lyrically, the song tells the story of the Fight Club character.

I'm becoming less defined, as days go by >> Fading away? Well you might say I'm losing focus >> Kind of drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself >> Sometimes, I think I can see right through myself >> Sometimes, I can see right through myself

Less concerned, about fitting into the world >> Your world that is, cause it doesn't really matter anymore >> No, it doesn't really matter anymore >> None of this really matters anymore

Yes, I am alone, but then again I always was >> As far back as I can tell, I think maybe it's because >> Because you were never really real to begin with >> I just made you up to hurt myself >> And it worked >> Yes it did!

There is no you, there is only me >> There is no fucking you, there is only me >> Only

Funny Games?

I am so looking forward to the new Funny Games movie. Michael Haneke who wrote and directed the original 1997 movie (German/French/Italian) is back with an English version starring Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Michael Pitt. The movie is a deconstruction of the way violence is portrayed in the media; an exploration of our violent society and how depictions of violence reflect and shape our culture. A family settles into its vacation home, which happens to be the next stop for a pair of young, articulate, white-gloved serial killers on an excursion through the neighborhood. White is going to be a scary color!

New Movie >> Wedding Daze

Two big thumbs up for this romantic comedy. Wedding Daze (aka The Pleasure of Your Company aka The Next Girl I See) is opening in the US in 2008. With the multiple name and release changes I didn't expect much of this movie, and I was pleasantly surprised by its quality. The acting is great, the jokes are really funny and Isla Fisher is just sexy (remember her as the nympho 'virgin' in Wedding Crashers?)

The movie is about unexpected love. On one hand we have Anderson (Jason Biggs) who lost his pefect girl by inducing a heartattack on her with his surprising romantic proposal and suffering depression for a year after 'killing' his GF. On the other hand we have Katie (Isla Fisher) who does not know if she really wants to be with her BF and accept his proposal. Anderson jokingly asks Katie (his waitress at breakfast) to marry him just to shut his best friend up after nagging him to get back in the game. She says yes, and we go through a fun journey of them figuring out if they can really fall in love. The family visits are hilarious.

Sexuality & Status Cufflinks

Say goodbye to confusion whether the guy is single or married, straight or gay (damn these confusing metrosexuals) or whethere it's a girl or guy or transexual in the first place! The idea is simple, you wear your sexuality on one sleeve, and your availability status on the other. The cufflinks have an inner cylinder that you can turn to change accordingly (i.e., married when the wife is around, single when she is not).

On one wrist your options are:
straight, gay, curious, transsexual, bisexual, swinger

On the other wrist your options are:
single, desperate, adulterous, divorced, married, available

Best of 2007 >> Music >> Dragonette

Dragonette is one of those rare bands that offer solid substance in a flashy shiny package. The Canadian band is fronted by beautiful female vocalist Martina Sorbara, and is currently based in London. Their 2007 album Galore is chock-full of fun upbeat and melodic songs. It's a shame it did not recieve enough attention and acclaim, as it was one of the best pop albums of last year. If fun sexy yet smart songs and videos are your cup of tea, then you will love Dragonette.

I Get Around was the first single. It is very catchy and has a fun video that matches its promiscous undertone ('I know your friends, you know mine too. Don't tell on me, I won't tell on you... I get around.. Here I come when I better go, I say Yes when I ought to say No').

Take it Like a Man was their second single and it has an extremely funny video that parodies classic porn movies, its one of favorite vids on 2007.

My absolute favorite from the album is True Believer, I dare you not to like it. It starts with mellow sound and sad lyrics
'I don't play well with the other kids, they know that I'm dangerous.
It's evident I'm different, my punishment is imminent.
They tell me that I'm no good, they say worse.
And I have got a curse, I know that its true'
then it morphs into pure joy
'But you, you make me better, you give me pleasure,
it's just your effect on me.
You make me sweeter, you give me fever
... Now I'm a believer. A true believer'

Good to be Proven Wrong!

I had to go to my embassy in Kuala Lumpor yesterday to process some papers. To say it was a complicated process is an understatement. One part of it involved tracing stamps on three passports for me and three for my brother. I was dreading it beforehand, I have always faced trouble, bureaucracy and delays when processing papers at government agencies. I was glad to be proven wrong this time. The embassy was extremely helpful and accomodating, and with the help of its super nice officers (thank you Mr. Hamza and Mr. Samer) I was able to finish processing the documents and get the papers I wanted within the same day. The effeciency of the embassy made me proud to be Syrian.

Visiting in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpor, KLCC Area

I am currently visiting Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a few days. I need to process some documents at my embassy and I wanted to visit my brother who just got back from a trip back home in Syria. Kuala Lumpor is one of my favorite cities. It is a huge metropolitan with numerous skyscrapers and big buildings and malls yet it has beautiful greenery and gardens everywhere. And I just love using its transportation system; buses, monorail, shuttle trains, LRT; I hardly use taxis. I think I'm gonna visit KL alot more this year. Check out the beautiful Petronas Twin Towers, the world's tallest twin buildings at night!

Now, the concept of charging your gadgets via movement is nothing new but check out the FORCE FIELD!! Wow

Everyday clothing can be transformed into smart clothes that react to environments and provide power to portable gadgets, by weaving conductive filaments into fabric.

Micro generators embedded into the seams of the clothes will convert all your movements into power. Your cyber-suit can discharge its power at any time, creating a shell of electricity and forming a personal forcefield to keep you safe down darkened alleyways. The electrical forcefield has the power to stun an attacker, and the intelligent fabric monitors heart rate and anxiety levels so it automatically knows when to power-up its protection system.

Music Trivia >> Piece of Robyn

Did you know that Robyn is the one singing backup vocals on Britney's current hit Piece of Me?

The connection? Piece of Me is written and produced by swedish team Bloodshy & Avant who happen to be friends with Robyn who hails from (surprise, surprise) Sweden.

Piece of Me just climbed to #2 on the official UK chart this week (14.01.2008). Even with zero promotional effort and only negative press (or is it because of it) people are still buying her record. I guess they are saying yes to Britney's "You want a piece of me?"

Funny bit : Just this last week (10.1.2008) Robyn had an interview with The Sun promoting her new Be Mine! single, and the headline was 'Don't Compare Me to Britney'.
