Purgatory said...

am aganist this because I do not see the benefit of it, its a worn out old concept that serves no purpose, people do not care, and even if they do, all the money that would be collected will not end up where it is supposed to.

Some people are destined to be poor, some people are destined to be rich, that is life, that is death, that is this idiotic wonderful world of ours that will be destroyed soon.

God Help you all.

Hey, glad another blogger is on top of this...I was cynical, but some of those acts won me over...

Zaydoun said...

I've been watching since kick-off and frankly I'm bored.. U2, Green Day and Coldplay were great, especially with Bittersweet Symphony. That gave me chills.

Elton was pointless, Bon Jovi were kinda dead, Dido..yawn!

Madonna is on now... Like A Prayer is usually better than this! And she said the F word on MBC4.. Ray of Light rocks!

Btw, can I officially declare my dislike of Dido? So damn dull and bland, no wonder so many people like her!

kwtia said...

Zaydoun, Yeah it dipped into the bore zone a lot, but then it picks up and it's all for all tastes...which means that there are times when some people yawn..sign the List everyone.

Hi, MsBaker
Shlonich? :)

I don't know about you guys, but I wish I was there (preferably London)

Purg, You part pooper
You're against bridging the rich/poor gap now?

Green day were HOT.. I missed Elton John.. Madonna's Like A Prayer wasn't bad and her Ray of Light got me dancing on the dinner table.

The Killers sucked big time!

Inshalla :)

Shurouq said...

And will Pink Floyd ever show up damnit?

Nazzal..... 9ij Wallah ??????
Where was it held?

nazzal said...

Yes i did .
Yet i don't remember exactly where , i recall it was one hour out of London , in an open field in the country side .


Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking

Purgatory said...

Shurouq, that gap exists for a reason, and will always exist, bridging the gap will not do anything, and I think it will never happen.

Why would rich countries, or people, help in making poor countries, or people better? Who would they "enslave" and who would obey them? It is not in their best interest.

They can have million of charities of different sorts, but it will never end, it is part of the world they want.

Purgatory said...


Death is not that bad, with death you get rebirth.

world, I can't help but cry. I mean I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and

Zaydoun said...

Damn it.. where's 1814 to read the Mariah comment?

ZORT you're hilarious!

jambino said...

LOL! Did she really say that? Definitly SNL material :))

Shurouq said...

Guys, I thought I had replied to your comments (the ones before Zort's hilarious quote), but somehow I don't see it!

Is it blogger, or is it me?

Oh well.. Thanks for dropping by, everyone.
Rock on.
