Silicon Valley – Nerds Rejoice

The world that is Silicon Valley is put on display for everyone to see the quirks and oddities of this industry through this amazing HBO Comedy. Silicon Valley offers an abundance of highly relevant and insightful thoughts on the state of the Dotcom craze. It’s all packaged within an engaging scenario brimming with sharp humor, endearingly eccentric characters and the chance to come along for the ride while they try to make millions. 

HBO managed to develop all the characters within a short span of 8 episodes that you can’t help but love these guys while they go their trials and tribulations in the most hilarious way. Each character is very different from the next with Richard being the main character and each one playing a role in the Pied Piper company. The funny part being that Hooli in the show is acting like a combination of Google/Yahoo in my opinion. It is a show which the nerdiest nerd will love as well as someone with no technical understanding what so ever, living in the bay area for over 5 years I can’t help but love this show on so many levels. If you haven’t watched it your really missing out.

Star Wars Rebels

The Jedi have been wiped out and the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Hope runs thin. But on the small planet of Lothal a big change is looming. A group of rebels meet a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra and soon it’s clear their destinies are linked. Aboard their ship, the Ghost, Ezra and the rebels embark on an adventure to ignite a rebellion and strike back against the Empire.

Words can not express how excited I am to see this animated feature after watching Star Wars The Clone Wars for 6 years. I was very disappointed when it came to an end but Disney did not want to disappoint and hopefully this will be just as good with just as many characters. It takes place after the Clone Wars with some very different characters, and the Dark Side have taken over, the Storm Troopers are here. In October we get to see the Rebels and how they face the Dark Side, this is going to be Epic.

Q8Car

Q8Car – Horrible Site!

What the hell happened to Q8Car, it started the trend of online vehicle selling and recently I tried using it and the website is horrible. One of the worst I have seen in a while, its as if no one wants to use it. When you click the search in English it takes you to a payment gateway and in the Arabic site the search doesn’t work correctly. The display is a mess, it really needs a major overhaul with a lot of features that should be added to it to notify buyers and sellers with all types of updates and simple ways to follow up.

This is the problem in Kuwait when it comes to websites they don’t continue improving and the income of this site is based on the ability of the website to work and in this case its failing miserably. Q8Car used to lead the pack in online vehicle sales in the Gulf Region and now there are others which are better and easier to use.

Kill La Kill – Must See

Plot Summary: Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She’s looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman’s identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special “goku uniform,” and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.

A fantastic anime from the creators of Gurren Laggan, with the same spirit and fire that fueled that anime and I especially love the style. You will always be routing for Ryuuki Matoi in the story and this is one of the best developed storylines I have seen in a long time, you can’t help but love all the characters, this is a rare breed of anime. And there is a fantastic twist towards the end that really gets you riled up. The action is nonstop if a lot of fan service nudity, but there is no episode that leaves you disappointed, and full of humor of every kind. If you have any inclination towards anime then this is a must, and if you haven’t seen it then you are really missing out.

ReDesign 2014 – Fully Refreshed

 

After 5 years I think it is finally time to redesign the blog and getting back to it and running again. Main issue wasn’t the WordPress version but the theme that was over 5 years old was falling apart at the seams, which made it a horrible experience to write anything. I reached a point where I thought of erasing everything and starting from scratch.

Luckily after a back and forth with the DreamHost Support I changed the install type of WordPress then shifted to a fully hosted DreamPress service of DreamHost which they fully take care of the technical side of WordPress. So after fixing a few issues and identifying some of the Plugins that were causing havoc they got it hobbling along and said the rest of it was with the Theme.

Then Jacqui aka CouchAvenue came in to the rescue and went into full redesign mode and went OCD on the site. Tweaking, fixing, modifying, and adjusting so many parts to make it work so perfectly. Using the Breeze from Bluth Company Theme she made into the amazing form that it is now.  There is still some minor issues but things are getting cleaned up in the backend to help things operate smoothly.

Brick Mansions – Parkor Movie?

I love parkor and I enjoyed any movie Paul Walker was in, so I was really looking forward to this movie. Especially after passing away I wanted to watch every Paul Walker movie, and I need to watch Hours and I am looking forward to the next Fast & Furious movie, but this one was a disaster. Seriously who ever was writing the story was high as a kite, there was rarely a time that I wanted to walk out of a movie but this was one of them and most of Nicholas Cage’s movies. The story was stale and as the movie progressed it went from bad to worse, time I can not get back.

 

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat

I really do love American Muscle, I love the feeling that this car will keep on burning rubber until you take your foot off the gas. American Muscle isn’t for everyone, but damn it I love it.

The Charger has a beast under the hood, with 707-hp flowing from a supercharged V8 displacing 6.2 liters . It pumps out 650 lb-ft of torque, can sprint to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds and can post a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds. The engine is paired with the an eight-speed automatic transmission which is specially designed to handle the increased output.

I was never a fan of Dodge because of their build quality but I liked the Challenger and the moment I read 707 bhp I want this car, and I love in white with the matte gold rims.

With a top speed of 204 miles an hour this is a machine that very few companies would make and price starting at around $65’000 it is cheap compared to any other machine within the same power range, be it American, German, Japanese, English or Italian.

Confederate-X132-Hellcat-Speedster-01

Another Beatufiul Confederate – The X132 Hellcat Speedster – By Pierre Terblanche

The Confederate machines are known to be beautiful hand made machines from the this well known “Southern” brand. It is another sophisticated piece of machinary that I would love to get my hands on. Based around the same 132 cubic inch (2,163cc) v-twin engine as the previous Hellcat models, the Speedster is good for 121hp and 140 lbs•ft of torque. The styling is true to the Confederate canon, and the detailed touches of Pierre Terblanche can be seen on this machine.

Noticeable features include a 240mm rear tire, a carbon fiber fuel tank, and a unique solo-saddle design. Suspension is by WP, brakes by Beringer, and the carbon fiber wheels are by Blackstone Tek with proprietary hubs. I love the look of the solo saddle hanging up in the air.

“The X132 Hellcat Speedster represents a return to the tradition of the Hellcat, which is a stripped down American hot rod motorcycle,” says Matthew Chambers, Confederate’s CEO and Founder. “A dragster for the street that is powerful, beautiful and most of all, a thrill to ride.”

This is a more modern look then they have made for the Confederate line up of machines before, and this is all thanks to the lead designer, Pierre Terblanche. “The challenge was improving performance, reliability, and practicality without diluting the iconic simplicity and sensuality of the Hellcat. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.”

65 of these works of art will be made, to get your hands on the Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster you will have to put a $10’000 Deposit on the machine, with a cost of $65’000 I am pretty sure this beast will sell out. Production starts in September but I’m not sure how long it will take to build one.
