Randomness at 2AM, after a long break.

I might be back. Who knows! I’m nearly done with exams, and summer’s round the corner, so if I got something to say, it’ll be here. Now, for what I was gonna write in my facebook status but found out to be too boring for those who know me personally, and others who are just browsing through, and poor them, they have to pass along a status of mine, which is about my beard. So I decided to take it here, and welcome myself back (as far as I know).

When you’re too lazy or too busy (or both), the ONLY time you realize that it’s time to shave is when strangers start calling you “Ya 7agg”… And in my case, because I’m always Mr Lucky Guy, you find out that your trusty Philishave that has served you for 5 years without a squeak, is BROKEN… at 2 am. Does it get worse? Hell yeah it does. I have an oral exam tomorrow, so I’ll be sitting in front of a professor of medicine tomorrow looking like a friggin hippie!

Does it get worse again now? It wouldn’t if I wasn’t me, but check this out, I’m meeting my girlfriend tomorrow and a lot of friends for lunch afterwards! Could it POSSIBLY get ANY worse??? Hello! We’re talking about me, if it’s not an extreme fuck up, it wouldn’t happen to me! Tomorrow Barack Obama is visiting Egypt, and the Pyramids are on my route to uni, and we’re expecting at least a dozen checkpoints on our way. Guess who’s looking like a fuckin terrorist! Yes, ME!

Too much information? Yeh, I’m bored.

Ass Buster: Rap With a Movement? The Narcicyst!!

The Narcicyst is a Canadian MC with Iraqi roots.

“Narcy” has been cited as one of the most credible Arab MCs worldwide and has been at the forefront of the movement internationally as an educator, performer and more recently, a journalist by the name of Narcel X.

Anyways, moving on to what this is all about (the video not the Narcysist really)… My first encounter with his music came with his latest video “PHATWA” which isn’t about Phatwas or anything… instead it exposes the American racism against Arabs at airports due to “Security Reasons!”

I’ll be talking more here, so you might wanna click the play button for it to load, and continue reading… So there you go. And there’s an option to play in HD if you want, and for an even higher resolution, click on the video and watch it on Youtube in full HD.

Ok back to more talking and talking! No seriously, this video is an exceptional and artistic tribute to political Arab North Americans after September 11. It touches on “Flying While Arab”,  Uncle Tom Arabs working for the Man, Israel (one of the security officials had an Israeli accent and asked about “the Palestinian”), Guantanamo Bay, and the oil obsession behind America’s love of the region (the Petrosexual Man magazine). It even called out the kuffiyah fad. Oh by the way, what’s up with everyone wearing kuffiyahs all of a sudden? Was it because of Rachel Ray and her ad? Haha!

The world is a funny place! The svelte body of young white dude wearing a shirt saying “Same Shit, Different Hipster” also came across the screen, and of course his awesome “Same Shit, Different Saddam” shirt.

And just for a little more info, The PHATWA music video is shortened version of a full 10 minute movie that is entering into various movie festivals right now (none of which I know so far though…) And on a side note, just out of interest in Narcy,
The PHATWA album of The Narcicyst is coming out on May 26th, 2009… You might wanna check it out, Arabs and Non-Arabs too…

Ass Buster: Ali G Is Borat, And Borat Is Now BRUNO!

Isn’t Ass Buster’s blog on fire or what?! We’re doing our best! Here’s some fresh movie news off http://ass-buster.blogspot.com

Sacha Baron Cohen is back with his third character from his very popular Channel 4 (in the UK) show “Da Ali G Show”

After the succes that Borat made on the big screen back in 2006 (Moey: one of my favorite movies), Cohen now brings his “Flamboyant Austrian fashionista” to the movies. Cohen has become famous for his outrageous yet hilarious comedy, and from the trailer for Brüno it doesnt seem like he’ll be slowing down on the crazy anytime soon…

Here’s a very wise quote from the trailer: “How do you defend yourself against a man with 2 dildos”

Oh yea and here’s the trailer:

Ass Buster: Eminem – We Made You [Official Video]

Dre, Eminem, and 50 Cent [During the video shoot]

Well its been too long, since we heard anything from big Em (what ever I was trying to be hip)

Eminem has been working on 2 new albums for a while now, and alot of talks have been going on inside the studio, once 50 Cent was quoted as saying:

“He’s got a new album coming. He’s not gonna tell people that, but he’s making new music. “I’ve heard a few songs, and it’s hot. He won’t tell nobody he’s working on a new album, but I’ll tell you: he’s working on new music. And once he locks into it, like, ‘This is my favourite s**t,’ it’s gonna come out.” When asked if the new material is angry or wacky, Jackson replies, “Both. The whole range. You know, Michael Jordan was supposed to play basketball. Floyd Mayweather was meant to box. And Eminem was meant to rap.”

The new video for the song “We Made You” is a welcome back to the style that made Eminem famous, a rap song that pokes fun of the current state of pop culture, with references to Kim Kardashian (and that ass) Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears, Indiana Jones, Palin, John Mayer, and a ass load more… Eminem also is pushing his rapping style adding a little more color to his signature accent.

If you liked “Without Me” and “The Real Slim Shady”, then you might just really like this one too !

There is some awesome cameos also in the video by Dr. Dre, 50 Cent (Fitty Fitty), Bobby Lee (one of the awesome actors on MadTV) and more.
