An Interview I Did 16 Years Ago

Posted By :

old interview

I was looking through my father’s papers when I spotted a picture of myself and a small interview I did with a local newspaper. I am not sure if it’s Annahar but the interview was about the Lebanese baccalaureate.

The answer I gave makes me sound like a nerd lol! They probably misunderstood what I said about not being worried about the Lebanese baccalaureate exams. I had just passed the French baccalaureate so I didn’t need to go through the Lebanese one and just went there because my parents wanted me to do. I did end up passing it though.

Pamela el Kik Says She Got “Inspired” By Charlie Chaplin

Pamela el Kik delivered a speech this week on Menna W Jerr, which was basically the Arabic version of The Great Dictator’s Speech (Charlie Chaplin). Unfortunately, she didn’t bother to mention that it was Chaplin’s speech but now she’s saying MTV cut off this part during the show’s editing.

I am guessing she’s probably right but she still should have mentioned at first that it’s Chaplin speech before reciting it in Arabic. Also, saying that she got inspired from The Great Dictator is inaccurate as it’s pretty much the same speech word by word. That’s not inspiration, that’s pure translation 🙂

All in all, I guess we should look at the positive side here, that more Lebanese now know Chaplin’s memorable speech.

PS: Good job Lebanese Art police on catching that mistake.

After Two Years, We Finally Have a Lebanese President … in Brazil

Michel Temer has officially become acting President in Brazil after the Senate suspended Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff. The 75 year old vice-president of Lebanese origins “was a key figure in the recent upheaval”.

Who is Michel Temer?
– He has been Brazil’s Vice President since 2011.
– He is president of Brazil’s largest party, the PMDB.
– He has always been known as the “kingmaker, but never the king, having helped form coalitions with every president in the past two decades”.
– He outlined in a recent WhatsApp recording leaked in April that Brazil needed a “government to save the country”.
– He has family roots in the village of Btaaboura in Lebanon, where there is a “Temer Street”.

Temer is seen as as a potential savior for Brazil’s woeful economy. I am not so sure about that but at least Brazil has a president.

The 2016 Worst Lebanese Pick Up Lines on OTV

I am still not a Hisham Haddad fan but yesterday’s #Lahonwbas TV segment was epic. The stuff they showed were hilarious but the OTV guy hitting on his female guest segment was rather more disturbing than funny. The host’s comments were vulgar and very lame, even lamer than the “bass jeete inte 3elyit el 7arara” guy from last year.

In fact, what the OTV host (no idea what his name is) did was borderline sexual harassment but he sounded like such a loser that his guest was probably trying hard not to laugh out loud.

Here’s what he was telling her:

El 7elo bya3mil Sekkare ma hek?

Teb Feena nkhaffif chouwe level el jamel wel 7ala 7atta ma ye3la el sekkare ma3na?

Then he went on:

Bchoufik el Khamees el mo2bal nchallah. Fi ghenniye bit2oul “Zayid 7alaki” Ma ba3rif iza 3al canderel.

Teb mnekhoud break la2anno ballashet dabbi2

Ballashet dabbi2? WTF is wrong with you dude?

Start watching at Minute 10:45. [Link]
