Awesome guide to Lebanon!
The ultimate Backpackers Guide to Beirut!
I have a friend, his name is Mr. Web. Yesterday Mr. Web chatted me on Facebook and told me we’re going to do an epic roadtrip down the United States to document the hysteria before, during, and after November’s presidential election. For the longest time (or at least sice our last trip in June) he’s been talking about a roadtrip documentary while crossing route 66; We’ll start in Chicago and drive all the way down to Los Angeles and San Francisco. I’ve already got an American girlfriend and a few contacts in Hollywood (I’m looking at you, Leo! and I need more!) so I told Mr. Web I was in.
Ahhh, leather. There’s nothing like the scent of expensive dead animal skin encasing your body or your money and nothing says “I want to dress like a dominatrix everyday!” this Fall than one of the season’s hottest trends. Whether you’re rocking killer boots, a biker hat reminiscent of Mr. Slave, or just that new handbag you’ve been slobbering over all month, now’s the time to invest in key pieces to leather-itize your wardrobe.
It’s great to be back on a Friday (even though every day is the same day now that I’m jobless). Anyways, last week was incessant party and going out every night till the break of dawn. I was exhausted so I made a promise to chill out a bit and my list this week reflects that…kind of. Enjoy some nice varied tunes to keep you going till next week.
Oh, Courtney…how sad it is since your time with Hole ended, the only thing you’ve been able to share with the world is being a cautionary tale… I’m sorry I had to use that picture because I know how heinous it is, but it properly demonstrates what this lip scrub will help you not achieve. No one wants to look like a $5 crack-ho and you’ll be amazed how effortless it is not to with this simple recipe!
Before I bacame famous, i tried this style!
What do you think?
I went to jump off a bridge!
Went to this place to fly!
2famous.TV’s aim is not only to spread fun and fame from Lebanon – we are also dedicated educators! And now that the University season is kicking off again, we have (obviously) been booked to do several talks all over the country. Good thing that the 2famous.TV crew just loves to talk in public then! It just feels so… rewarding, when you get to see the instant feedback of your work. This is also the closest we can get to being rock’n roll stars, going on stage and all, as we are both completely tone deaf and rubbish with music (just like Britney Spears). So, here is a video from one of our performances at the legendary Rafiq Hariri University where we talked about Walk of Causes for Earth Day, and why we had to become famous to fight the stigmatized image that the Western media are creating of the Arab world, that ultimately can lead to hatred and violence.
“The place went apeshit. Shirts flew off, mosh pits started, couches were hurled, lamps swinging, poor bartender girl ran upstairs in hysterics which left the bar un-girled and therefore open for everyone to go back and start helping themselves to generous pourings of liquor and beers, the crowd got drunker and drunker… the walls were sweating, the floor drenched in spilled liquids and the marks which would become future bruises. At 2 am we were told to stop, and the damage was done. We hurried out, still beaming/buzzing at the nights success and walked home steaming warm in the slightly chilled air.”
The Corniche is one of the most famous spots in Beirut. People come from all over the world to take a walk on this historic piece of paved road next to the Mediterranean sea. Regional dominating athletes have used the currents outside the Corniche to stay fit for century窶s, while local fishermen use this area for 窶ｦ well you know, fishing. Young men come here to whistle and whisper cheesy compliments to the girls, smoke water pipe and show off. And the girls seem to come here to show their well sculpted bodies fishing for compliments, only to get annoyed by it. Today it is one of the favorite hang-out-spots for celebrities and other famous people!
It’s been a month since we published the list ‘30 Most Influential People on Twitter in Lebanon‘. We have now taken the feedback we got into consideration, and reviewed, revised and updated the list to become the tightest and most complete compilation of the top Tweeps in Lebanon to have ever existed! And if that is not enough, we now invite you to shape this list by voting for who you think deserves to have the top ranking on Twitter in Lebanon!
WHAT THE FUNK? – TOTALLY FAMOUS RIP OFF PIRATE PARTY!
If you live in Beirut, you have probably seen the massive billboard campaign that says nothing but “What the Funk?”
Many people have been wondering what the fuck this is advertising for – something that has kept us at the 2famous.TV office secretly giggling in our beards. But now, as rumors has it to that a massive international corporation are trying to steal our campaign, we are forced to drop the bomb!
So, Ladies and Gentlemen, we are proudly inviting you to our very own, and very, very famous “WHAT THE FUNK?” TOTAL FAMOUS RIP OFF PIRATE PARTY this very Sunday!
2famous.TV – How a Norwegian Blog Became Famous in the Middle East.
The idea behind the blog 2famous.TV is to become Famous in the Middle East, and to help NGO’s spread awareness of their work with social related problems.
Twitter… Just one of those things that you hate until you get hooked on it.
Because it is indeed a bit harder to get into it than most other social media that usually just adds your FaceBook (fans) friends to your list. And we all remember our first tweets, throwing out a shaky sentence to our five followers, not quite understanding why you didn’t send them a text message from your phone instead. Then some people start following you, you get some mentions and retweets, and it reminds you that you’re not at all alone out there. And if you really get into it, and if you become an influential power player, you can start a revolution. It’s happened before. There is a book about it. It’s called Tweets From Tahrir.
Twitter is definitely the fastest way of mass communication out there: it gets on Twitter before it gets on your TV screen.
So, to follow up our list of Lebanon’s 40 most visited blogs with reviews, we have now created a list of the 30 most influential people on Twitter in Lebanon.
Rumors had come to our ears that a lot of famous Lebanese actors was going to meet up to walk for a cause, so we felt obliged to support our colleagues – and perhaps get a spot in one the prestigious Lebanese gossip magazines. We also expected to be expected as we are the most famous walkers of the Lebanese internet society – we didn’t even need an invitation.
However, we didn’t quite know what we were supposed to walk for, but we were pleased, honored and flattered to see how the famous people of Lebanon are taking inspiration from us, and our Walk of Causes Project. Yesterday it turned out that we were walking to prevent the closing down of Masrah Beirut Theater.
Yes, we’re still broke. We’ve been collecting coins from the gutter to buy bread and water.
And then, as we were begging strangers for change outside of a shop, Matias discovered his face on a TV-screen! A Pepsi commercial! Among all the jobs, it’s hard to remember which ones you’ve been in, and which ones you’ve been payed for. So we called our agent for a little meeting.
