WOHOOO! Ramadan is here, let's start listing the daily schedule, first wake up grouchy, don't brush your teeth and don't wash your face ! it is haram to touch water. You are fasting to feel the misery of poor people. of course getting into the car with eyes half open, trying hard not to fight with the car drivers next to you but what the hell it is Ramadan am allowed to be mad and angry I haven't had coffee and I haven't had my breakfast cigarette. getting to the office still grouchy- lack of nicotine and lack of caffeine. Two thumbs up for Brazil! I dunno what we have done without the major coffee bean exporter. After 8 hours of constant snoring you go to the car again to continue the sleeping session in your warm bed, tiered and sick deprived from water and food.
I bet people never paid attention to the prayer times and never even witnessed the sunset except in this month! This second represents the starting of the eating race. READY –STEADY-GO! The race begins, lets reserve seats and fill the plate with food and wait till the prayer time.. wohoo finally all the Jordanian population eat at the same time. Is not that wonderful! They can never agree on he color of their logo or chosen their ministers! But ofcourse regarding something that important everyone will !
So after iftar(literally breakfast, everyone spends time in looking for open cafes to play cards, watch BAB ALHARRA and have argeleh and hubble bubble! horaaaa ( screaming out my lungs , jumping and holding my feet in the air and my hands up high) Ramadan is here lets have fun and socialize! A and have an excuse to be mean to people!

WAW! it is that simple!
Impressionism – painting outside of a studio with quick, loose brushstrokes to capture an evocative impression of their subject. Van Gogh was an Impressionist but wanted to express how he felt about what he saw so he distorted the subject. This helped to lead to Expressionism practised by artists from Edvard Munch through to Francis Bacon. The Fauves (wild beasts) expressed themselves by painting with bright colours. Jackson Pollock did it by throwing or dripping paint on a canvas. His paintings were abstract — Abstract Expressionism.
Cezanne was very important. He began as an Impressionist but then started to look at a subject from two different perspectives to represent how we see. Picasso and his friend Georges Braque were very impressed and started to paint subjects from lots of different views. This is Cubism. Marcel Duchamp was a Cubist but then changed art for ever. He said the idea is more important than the medium and refused to stick with the limited choice of canvas or stone. So he chose everyday objects and called them art because he had altered their context. This led to Conceptual Art where the idea becomes the medium.
The Dadaists were very cross. They blamed the horrors of the First World War on the Establishment’s reliance on rational and reasoned thought. They radically opposed rational thought and became nihilistic — the punk rock of modern art movements. Dada plus Sigmund Freud equals Surrealism. The Surrealists were fascinated by the unconscious mind, as that’s where they thought truth resided. Piet Mondrian thought he could paint everything he knew, felt and saw by using two lines placed at rectangles and three primary colours. This was called Neo-Plasticism and was inspired by Cubism. So was Futurism, which is Cubism with motion added. Vorticism is the same as Futurism, but British. The Minimalists might represent the real truth because they weren’t trying to represent anything. Performance Art is Dada live.

I found this online and it shows the relation to world events and the zombie movie making industry. Well, is it the global world events and the decline in humanity that affected media or the media is affecting our day to day life and allowing us to comprehend and digest our lack of humanity and understanding of the world. The thin line between real and fiction is now fading away and even science fiction stories are becoming headlines on the 8 pm news report , while the majority of cultured media brain washed societies are accepting it as a prove of ascending civilization.

My body is paralyzed while the voices keep on weeping, the train comes in and I can’t see it …seeing it would drive me to reach my climax and leave me hanging there paralyzed waiting to be taken, my body is frozen but I can feel and see the blood running through my vain, I can feel my blood running through my five toe s congesting in one point running through my both legs to reach my thighs to reach my waist dances to my heart…(totom.. the sound of a beat coming from a machine ) one heart beat and one breath pushes it further….. it runs faster now divided to three parts my arms, hands, my fingers, the tips of my fingers, to my nails I feel that beat in my fingers, I breath .. another silent deep breath and I deliberately close my eyes, the train now is stopping in front of me I can’t see it I can only feel the air drifting on my face. I open my eyes, the voices seem so distant now that the stupid train driver opens the door and my feet push me in . Now I wait for the next time I wait for the train. Will i ever the courage to do it.

the symptoms for this sickness are as follows.
1. Sever redness of the women’s check, lips and nose, after a while blackness and rainbow colors on the eye. A black line shows up to define the roundness of the eye.
2. Some females might suffer mind loss which leads them to excessive money spending.
3. All the cases showed more self confidence and higher self esteem rates some of them even became politicians and had major influence on the world history.
Well, you got the point and this is a world wide fact maybe due to the globalized image that capitalism has produced on the shape of Vauge or Cosmopolitan magazines .
Now they have special salons for putting make up and it became an art ! an extremely expensive art !
Here is the calculation:
The cost of buying make up product is around 30 to 40$ according to the brand.
But the cost of putting it in a salon is also around 40 $ average.
1 time per week = 40 $
Per month = 160$
Per year = 1920$
Women start putting make up at the age of 20 ( assuming of course)
So that gives them 50 years of makeup =96000
! I wonder what paintings you can buy with that money!
