Celebrate Talents Instead of Making Stupid People Famous!

Bimbos and attention whores never fail to make an occasion pass without trying to garner followers and likes on their social media platforms, and for Christmas time, it was of course mandatory to pose in skimpy red outfits because you know… there’s no other way to celebrate such occasion!

However, and despite the fact that everybody talk negatively about these SM figures, you keep seeing their followers count constantly increasing due to all the publicity they get on social network and especially Facebook. It’s like people follow their pages to just see how bad the next videos/photos will be, which motivate page owners to fart more content and the whole thing eventually gets other bimbos to get jealous, create pages, and do the same!

Unfortunately, the biggest losers out of this become the talented artists who produce really good content but fail to get the exposure they deserve because people are too busy monitoring Rola Yammout’s activity on instagram!

Sevine and Azizat Beyrouth are the best examples of talents that are not getting the attention they really deserve, and my latest discovery today was a girl called “Carla Chamoun” who has a beautiful voice and some cool videos on One:Sixteen’s Facebook page, yet for some reason the number of view she gets is incomparable to that of other silly videos..!

Here are a couple of my favorite videos of her.

The likes of Carla, Sevine, and Azizat Beyrouth are the ones who deserve the serious exposure. I know it’s impossible to keep people from following the lives of star wannabes, but just try to make better decisions about the stuff that should be spread out on social networks.

5 Songs That Brought Music in Lebanon to an All Time Low This Summer

rima-dib

If we’re gonna remember this summer for something other than the garbage scattered everywhere around the country, then it’s definitely for the low quality music that was produced for celebrity wannabes to get their 5 minutes of fame.

Here’s a quick list I compiled from what I have lately seen on YouTube. I’m pretty sure there’s more but I think 5 are enough to avoid any damage for your eyes and ears.

1- Tarek Al-Atrash – Merzabbi

What does Merzabbi mean? And why did somebody feel the urge to write a song about it?

2. Rola Yamout – Ana Rola

I honestly never paid attention to the music. This is actually the kind of videos that help you identify whether you are an ass or boobs man.

3. Rima Dib – Ya Wad Ya T2il

Nothing. Zero. Cero. Null.

4. Myriam Klink – Baddi Walle3 Albak Nar

Falls in the same category as #2. It can also be used during self loving time as well… you know self loving… w heik.

5. Hadi Azrak – Jenno Notto

Tirachrach is so 2011! No wedding was complete this season without this one playing at least once during the party.

Ziad Rahbani 24/7

ziad-rahbani

I’m a fan of Ziad Rahbani, not the kind of fans that consider him a god, but I do love his work and I was glad to stumble upon a new cool radio station that airs nothing but his plays and music!

The station is broadcasting on 105.7 MHz and I’ve been listening to it on my way to work or home over the last few days to enjoy Ziad’s jokes that never get old.

I’m not sure until when the broadcast will remain the same but I believe it won’t be long until a new radio station is launched. So for now, just enjoy the laughs and good music before trendy Arabic songs take over!

Lebanese submissions to the 87th Oscar awards

I was checking some Oscar-related news today and noticed we got two submissions (but not yet shortlisted) for the awards. One for the movie “Ghadi” by George Khabbaz as the best foreign language film, and the other for Yasmine Hamdan’s song “Hal”, which was featured in the British-German movie “Only Lovers Left Alive“, as the best original song.

I sure hope at least one of these two gets shortlisted, especially Yasmine Hamdan with that super sensual performance, but the competition is usually pretty fierce.

Does anybody know if any Lebanese artwork has ever been shortlisted for the Oscars?

Batman fans, this is for you!

If you’re a Batman fan, you’re gonna love this. The Piano guys made this epic video highlighting 50 years of Batman music, film, and BATMOBILES.

 

On a side note, Batman v Superman: Dawn of justice, the sequel to “Man of Steel” is due out in March 2016. Can’t wait!

Ahmad Kaabour – Tnein Tnein

I loved this clip by Future TV! It’s been a while since they last produced a video of this caliber. It reminded me of the jingles they used to make in the ’90s.

Maya Diab copies Beyonce

This is the newest music video by Maya Diab and the one below it is 1+1’s video by Beyonce. Can you notice the similarities?

Earlier in October Haifa Wehbe’s new movie teaser also turned out to be a copy of Monica Belluci’s Malena trailer and a Martini Gold ad.
