Nuqat – Executing Culture Shock

Last month, I attended the three-day Nuqat conference about Executing Culture Shock. I really enjoyed my time there. The lectures made me look at art and design very differently. I realized how hard it is to make such beautiful things. Of course things get harder when culture gets involved because people don’t always accept art as a form of expression. Many times, art is censored because the culture wouldn’t accept it. It traces back to traditions and what the current norms are.

One of the lecturers, Alanoud Al Sharekh, talked about censorship and the forbidden in our region when it comes to art and media. Her speech was one of the best. Thank God for technology because all of the lectures are available on Nuqat’s YouTube Channel.

Here’s Al Sharekh’s speech (skip the first 3 min to immediately start with the speech)

Pitch Perfect’s “When I’m Gone”

I want to learn how to do that. I watched tutorials, but it’s so hard to perfect and I’m extremely slow. Does anyone know how to do this?

Camping in Kuwait

The video gives some tips on how to eat the food you love without regretting it afterwards. It’s easy to get tempted into eating fatty and juicy foods because they “taste” good. That is not an excuse. There are much healthier alternatives. It’s all about making the right decisions, especially when it comes to portion sizes.

CDZA – LOVE

I found what might be the coolest youtube channel ever. Not really. But anyways I have never seen a group so talented as CDZA. They take famous songs and mess up their lyrics or their tune. It’s so funny. I love how they never laugh when doing their videos. They’re so serious, which really adds to the humor in it. This is one of their videos that I just love! BTW, in order to actually laugh, you really need to know English songs, both old and new ones.

The Piano Guys

The Piano Guys are YouTube sensations that really captured my attention. I recently found out about them when they performed live on Jay Leno. They’re a group of five guys that are known for their amazing original music videos and covers.

This is some information I found on their website:

But it’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an Internet phenomenon that has now brought them to their major label debut album, The Piano Guys, to be released on Sony Masterworks on October 2nd, 2012.

But just who are The Piano Guys? Actually, there’s only one piano player, Jon Schmidt, and one other instrumentalist, Steven Sharp Nelson, on cello. Yet the other three – Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart and Al van der Beek – are equally significant members of the group. The Piano Guys’ name comes from Anderson’s piano store in St. George, Utah, which was called The Piano Guys.

Here’s their version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”

Thank You YouTube

One reason I hate signing up for any gym is that I don’t show up most of the time. That’s because I get bored so easily, especially if I go alone. I usually listen to my iPod while using the machines, but lately it’s not enough of a distraction. I figured out a way to pass time like crazy. It’s to look up YouTube videos and watch them while using machines that don’t require your hands. I usually do that when I’m on the bike. The other day I watched a few videos and I ended up spending more time and burning more calories. Now, I have more motivation to go, even if it’s from videos on my iphone!

Fun Facts About Kuwait??

I found this video on youtube and I have no idea why it really aggravated me. I feel that some of the facts were over exaggerated and they’re not really “fun”. All it talks about is the fact that it’s a rich country. I think it’s missing out on other things, but I don’t know what exactly. What could be considered a fun fact about Kuwait?

I WANT A JUICY LUCY

Ever since I watched an episode of Man Vs. Food about Juicy Lucy, I’ve been craving it. I don’t know if it’s even possible to crave something I haven’t tried, but that’s how I feel. It’s a burger stuffed with melted cheddar cheese that oozes when you bite through it. I love cheese and having it hot and melted inside a burger is just perfect. The episode is about where to find the best and original Juicy Lucy. It famous in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but there are two burger joints on the same avenue that claim the title of being home of the first Juicy Lucy.

Also, an episode of Food Wars about Juicy Lucy.

WARNING: Don’t watch the videos if you’re craving burgers!

Faye Sultan – Kuwait’s 1st Female Olympic Swimmer

I cannot describe how excited I was when I read the news! Faye Sultan, a Kuwaiti female is going to compete in the London 2012 Olympics. She’s going to be the first Kuwaiti female that competes in swimming. She’s doing the 100m freestyle. The reason for this excitement is that I knew her as a kid. I can still remember her passion for sports. She was always going to practices and doing her best at everything. Now at 17 years old and nearly 6 feet tall, I wish her the best of luck. I’m really proud of her and I will support her all the way.

Short Video About Faye

UPDATE: Fay will be competing on Friday, August 3 at 12:00pm (Kuwait Time)
