Shows That Ended – 2013

TheOfficeSeasonFinale1

There are a lot of shows that have ended that have been around for a long time. Some of them came on the first few years I started working so it has been a constant for me to watch them, and now they have come to an end and this is what I have done the last two weeks is catch up on tv shows when I could and in this case finish the ones I knew have ended, and sometimes there are shows I just don’t finish for some reason.

30 Rocks – 7 Seasons

Liz lived happily and neurotically ever after. Jack got to sail off into the sunset and come right back. Kenneth’s immortal vessel got to run NBC well into the flying-car future. And Lutz — 51-year-old, bisexual, part-Inuit Lutz — got to pick the lunch place. One hell of a season finale.

Rules of Engagement – 7 Seasons

This is one of the few shows that I enjoyed David Spade in, and they wrapped it up a bit on the last episode because they knew the end was coming. And I love Patrick Warburton the guy is seriously a guy’s guy and every man thinks like he does but they don’t state, he just comes right out and says it. Too bad this show ended, was hoping for more.

The Office – 9 Seasons

A show that thrived on heartache, awkwardness, and cheekiness, things wrapped up very cheerily for the characters — and for the fans, who got one last Michael Scott “that’s what she said.” The Office came to an end with a hell of last episode and I loved it.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars – 5 Seasons

Lucas Ranch was sold Star Wars to Disney and a few shows got chopped off and this is one of them. Anakin and Ashoka were developed well into the series, the ending wasn’t what I was hoping for since there is always more you can get from the Star Wars Universe.

Short Hiatus

Going on a break every once in a while is always important to do. I was pretty much offline in a lot of forms, stopped my Blackberry for about a month, barely checked twitter every 4 to 5 days. Didn’t post for about two weeks which was driving me nuts since I had a lot to say. The only real place I was putting a few things up was on Instagram and I wasn’t on that 100%.

When on vacation I wanted to enjoy my vacation, and thankfully I managed to go to a lot of events that were very fun and I got a lot of Riding in during this vacation. One speeding ticket in California over a 30 day period is impressive for me, and it wasn’t too bad.

I tried watching as many movies as possible, some were fantastic and some were disappointing but it was a lot of fun. Now I’m back and playing catch up, and my Google Reader is going to blow! lol

MyUS Quick Shipping

The one thing that we all live by is online purchases in my case I buy movies, electronics, hardware , books, and pretty much anything else that comes to mind. The only issue I have is when it gets stuck in customs, there were times that it would get stuck for weeks with Aramex and a few times they would lose my product which drove me nuts.

In this case I switched to MyUS and I was very happy with them, quick to reply always taking care of my shipments. I could combine items and ship certain items, and you get choices to ship through FedEx, DHL, or a combination.

After shipping so many different kinds of items through multiple ways I figured out that the best way is to ship through DHL in somewhat of medium to small size package. Sometimes I combined a lot of packages into one big package and that would get stuck for at least 10 days, and with Aramex the smallest packages take at least four days. Now with DHL & FedEx if I ship it in a more compact size even if its combined it flies under their radar and I get it out of customs the second day.

Paul – Trailer

Two alien aficianados who want to go on a road trip all over the US to visit areas of the alien encounters only to encounter an alien named Paul. The combination of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost is bound to be a hilarious movie, they come up with some very twisted humor. Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead were hilarious so I’m not doubting that this movie is going to be even funnier, keeping in mind those were British Flicks and this one is an American one.

Faber Castell – Perfect Pencils

Most everything is digital these day but when I go to meetings I have my trusty Moleskin with me and when I travel I have another for personal use. I like writing stuff down, drawing and doodling on the Moleskin. But with the perfect not pad you have to have the perfect tool, and in this case it the Faber-Castell pencils, I have been using them for a while, regular pencils and mechanical pencils. My drawing skills are no better then that of a 3 year old but I still like to draw and sketch, its always a good way to display ideas and I’m always noting stuff down or trying to draw things.

I have picked up about six different pens and pencils over the last two years and I use them all, I have some which are clipped onto a specific note pad and some I use for doodling. And recently I bought a drawing pencil set, from 6H to 8B, and I don’t even know what that means except maybe the thickness of the lead of the pencils, its just normal black pencils which I use for drawing and shading and some of these are very thick so its going to be fun trying them out. I have found these pencils available in Magahwi in Salmiya and Kuwait City opposite Khaleejeya complex, and in Greece Airport, Singapore Airport, all over the UK. If your a person that enjoys their writing and drawing utensil then this is the perfect tool.

Flights To The US

SecurityLaptop

This new Nigerian terrorist attack on Delta Airlines has led to increased security on all flights inbound to the US. This is just some of the new unknown rules that have just popped up, expect some new streamlined FAA rules to come out soon.

Some New Rules:

  • No Electronics on the Flight to the US, no laptops, gaming machines, iPods, nothing
  • You have to remain in your seat when there is an hour remaining until the plane lands, no bathroom breaks, can’t reach for your bag, remain stationary
  • Completely random and unexpected types of searches to be commencing at the airport

TSA Update:
2. IN FLIGHT
During flight, the aircraft operator must ensure that the following procedures are followed:

  • 1. Passengers must remain in seats beginning 1 hour prior to arrival at destination.
  • 2. Passenger access to carry-on baggage is prohibited beginning 1 hour prior to arrival at destination.
  • 3. Disable aircraft-integrated passenger communications systems and services (phone, internet access services, live television programming, global positioning systems) prior to boarding and during all phases of flight.
  • 4. While over U.S. airspace, flight crew may not make any announcement to passengers concerning flight path or position over cities or landmarks.
  • 5. Passengers may not have any blankets, pillows, or personal belongings on the lap beginning 1 hour prior to arrival at destination.

From the reports, the guy had some explosives in his boxers, which will lead to some very embarrassing and disturbing searches, I don’t know what else they plan on diong to beef up security. Luckily the guy was subdued by the passengers, who I’m assuming knocked him out unconscious when they knew what he was doing.

Homeland Security – Search and More

We all know that the searches performed at Airports in the US aren’t random but most of us who travel there tend to accept it as the cost of going and don’t really mind, but not this is going a little overboard. Homeland Security just passed a new directive that these border patrol people can search your digital media, meaning that they can switch on your computer and go through your data, and make copies of your data if they see it as necessary. That includes photo and video data on your camera or video camera, they can store that as well. And this is all based on their discretion, this is for domestic and international flights, so you are at the mercy of government agents who are at the bottom of the food chain being paid very little. The bad part is that the decision is left to these people which I think will be a catastrophic. Just for those who don’t know, if they find any copyrighted data such as movies or TV shows they might act on it. So I think its a time for people to get a little tech savvy in keeping their private data private.

Gumball 3000 Drivers Getting Caught!

Looks like these guys are speeding and getting caught at every corner. Some of these guys were doing 180+ mph (290+ kph) and were chased down by the police, all they need to do is radio ahead and get a road block set up. Even the Bugatti was loaded up into a trailer, and cops in the US don’t joke around, at these speeds it straight to jail and don’t think you would come out any time before standing in front of a judge.

Harley Davidson Buys MV Agusta & Cagiva

After all these rumors Harley Davidson did it, they bought out MV Agusta for $110 Million and they got Cagiva with them as well. What I find out is that both companies are having financial issues so I wonder what they were thinking. If there is plan in mind I don’t clearly see it. It seem that MV Agusta will be getting an some new life into them but keeping the main people who make it what it is, I just hope they don’t lose that Italian touch.
