Since it was Gebran Tueni’s birthday yesterday, and given how much I admire this man and everything he’s done for Lebanon, I thought of resharing the article I wrote about him and social media for Annahar few months ago.

Libans de Reves: Tarek Chemaly x Charif Megarbane audiovisual collaboration


Based on a title which is a part of a sentence by Rimbaud in his prose poem “Villes I” in Les Illuminations, “Libans de reves” (or “Lebanons of dreams”) is an audiovisual diptych between visual artist Tarek Chemaly and musician Charif Megarbane (the talent behind the Cosmic Analog Ensemble) which includes “CocoCommodore” and “Abou el Rish” – a kind of false introspection for a nation that lost sight of itself (assuming it ever had it).

Koussa Man2our For The Lazy Cooks

I spotted this stand in Tripoli but I’ve seen supermarkets selling them as well. It’s definitely a smart idea but they should cover the zucchini if they wanna sell them on the street.

Camaro Club Lebanon Rides For The Lebanese Army

Over 40 Camaros gathered for a ride to support the Lebanese Army yesterday. I spotted some of them on the highway then saw the album they uploaded on their Facebook page. The Camaro Club is one of the biggest clubs in Lebanon, which is quite surprising considering how expensive the car is.
Speaking of Camaros, the only one I’ve driven was a very old one and it used to drift like crazy. I wonder if the new ones are difficult to drive as well.
