Rediscovering Lady Gaga.

Yes, it is 5AM and I'm bored like hell, and I can't sleep.
So I'm just posting random video about Lady Gaga.

I never realized that this woman really can sing! And she can also play the piano!
Her songs are too noisy that I don't pay attention to her great voice! But wow, these videos really are amazing!

Coldplay is also one of my favorite band, and I think she did a perfect job!
As for John Lennon's cover, I always used to confuse Imagine with Martin Luther King Jr's I have a dream. Well, I guess I won't get confused anymore. :-P


Lady Gaga - Viva la Vida

Lady Gaga - Imagine

UFA 3D Mapping Event

My parents told me to check this event out cause the daughter of my mom's best friend presented a video (which wasn't that good by the way).

So, I just went with them since I was bored at home and had nothing else to do and turns out, it was great!
Every animation was so creative, colorful and every single one of them amazed me!

I really encourage you to go check it! There are 2 other shows on the 30th and on the 31st at 8:30 PM.

The point of 3D Mapping is to display an animation on a building to make it "come alive".
The UFA building turned into a circus, a black hole or even an aquarium...





Congratulation!

to David Furnish and Elton John! :-)

Their son, Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John was born 25 December 2010 in California via a surrogate.

John and Furnish got married in 2005 after 12 years together, it was one of the first gay marriage in the UK.

Back to the kitchen...

We have had water problems since summer...
But it finally started to rain!

Therefore, I'm spending a lot of time in the kitchen, trying to compensate all the times I wanted to bake and couldn't!

So, today I made some cupcakes :-D
My pastry bag exploded while I was icing them so it ruined everything... But I could save some :-P

Chocolate chips, Oreo and vanilla... Hmm :-)
I also found some pictures of the cookies I did last month :-D

Don't Ask Don't Tell.

I just learned that DADT has been repealed thanks to a tweet by Lady Gaga.

Can't hold back the tears+pride. We did it! Our voice was heard + today the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 YEARS.

I never really cared about DADT because it's never going to affect my life or my rights in any way, but it's good to know that the Senate finally voted to repeal it.
Apparently homosexuality "would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability."

Akh... :-/

Anonymity

Before creating my own, the only gay Lebanese blogs I read were anonymous.
I must admit that I've also considered remaining anonymous for a while, but I finally decided to just reveal my name and some personal information.
Now that's not only because I couldn't find any cool nickname, but also because I'm trying to send an important message to the LGBT Lebanese youth out there, don't be ashamed of who you are.

I'm not saying that you should go out and shout that you're gay to everyone, no, but I thought that a name could really mean a lot to a reader who is still trying to accept who he is.

Moreover, I really want to be myself in here. I do this by posting everything that comes through my mind, and by doing this, a lot of personal things might come out.

Also, I'm pretty sure no friend or acquaintance of mine will ever find this blog unless they run very deep searches about the Lebanese gay community which is very questionable... :-P

But I was chatting with my friend the other day and she told me that I was taking a huge risk.
"This homophobic guy who works with my mom told her that the police is searching for blogs just like yours to arrest gay people... I don't know, maybe you should just remove some information you published on it."
This just doesn't make sense to me.
A risk? I don't think I am taking any risk.

Anyway, I just want all my readers to find courage and strength to bee themselves and I thought that revealing my identity could really help everyone that is still not accepting who he is.

Catching up...

Akhh.. It's good to slowly pass my fingers on a laptop's keyboard!
I've been using my iPod for almost 3 weeks now, and I've been busy with school and life...

I don't know where to start!
Well, it rained! Finally! And it snowed and my sister is going skiing tomorrow (That's why I stole her laptop) and I'm so jealous :-(
I haven't been skiing last year for lots of reason and I miss the sensation! The snow, the cold, the wind, everything!
I'm spending my New Years Eve at Faraya so hopefully they will be snow ;-D
And of course the rain and the temperature dropping is another reason for shopping!

And now I'm watching the 6th season of How I Met Your Mother and yeah... I'm laughing alone in the living room like an idiot.

I also just came back from the movies! I saw Tangled, it was so funny and cute and the songs were awesome! There were no kids in the movie which I found weird, it was only adults in there! Anyway I'm not gonna say more ;)

So yeah, that's pretty much what I did these 3 weeks. Hopefully I'll get my laptop on Christmas so get ready for non-stop blogging and babbling ;-D
