Today im sharing one of the great discoveries i stumbled upon this year.
It was during the TedxDubai event that i first got introduced to The Narcicsyt, he had a great presentation as you can read in my previous post here.
He's on Twitter and you better follow his musical genius! twitter.com/@TheNarcicyst
and his website www.Iraqisthebomb.com
And here is the video of him at TedxDubai, one hell of a show/presentation, an eye opener!
Here is his latest artwork!
The video is insaaaaane!!
The start is superb with "The maker can see you, puts you on the edge of your seat with the dude dreaming, feelin guilt, makin you wonder what he did?! is he waiting for punishment?
AND THEN, voilaaaa the beats start making your ears go drunk! the lyrics are siiiiiick!!!
The effects in the video are kick ass!! loved the coins vomit with the final spit at the end,, the flock of crows with the train,,
(the views i express are solely mine and do not reflect the artists behind the video)
WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!
And here is another great track by this way talented artist!!
A final nice skit he did on Busta's Arab Money!
I'll leave you all with his freakin great words about Hip-Hop:
"Highly Intellectual People Hovering Over Politicians, that hyphen between the Hip and the Hop is the land that we walk on"
That's my musical buttermint of the day.

Stumbled upon this great TVC by Lynx deodorants!!
i am a big fan of their ads, with their twists on the attractiveness of the deodorant! They really get creative!
This latest one proves them thinking out of the box,, tapping into the other females to be attracted to their deodorants! lovin the soundrack as well, complementing the divine nature of the victims hahaha
What do you guys think!?

A while ago i rented out a bike while my car was in service, the mighty '10 Harley Davidson V-Rod Muscle !! here's my take on it !
First off, some boring specs for some:
Displacement: 1,250cc (V2 - four stroke)
Gearbox: 5 speed
Exhaust system: Dual side Satin Chrome
Cooling: Water Cooled
Weight: 292 Kg
Being a superbike rider (own a '06 Honda CBR600RR), my first concern was the weight of the bike when i first saw it. Gettin on it was daunting enough, with the wider handlebars than a sport bike, the seating position, more upright and feet upfront! Kicking off the bike stand, i realized how its low ground clearance makes it easier to handle the weighty bike, it does feel light, surprisingly!
I really liked the instrument cluster on the bike, it does portray its sporty muscle side, clear rpm, tachometer and fuel gauges, pure and simple!
The bike has a keyless ignition system, kinda tricky, need to always keep in mind to lock it once you get off, but a nice touch to avoid the hassle of using the key, as long as u keep the bike in sight that is ;)
Starting off the engine is a pure joy every time with the harley rumble along the exhaust tips, nothing will beat that! thank god they patented it :p Once you set off on the bike, you immediately notice the maneuverability of such a beast, it handles like a mix of a sport bike and a cruiser... Goin over the overpass bends in Dubai proved to be easy for the bike and much fun testing how far it would bend on the curves.. but the true power of this bike is the long stretches on SZR. With its water cooled engine, this is one of the most powerful bikes Harley has, the torque once you twist your right hand is phenomenal, like riding a saber tooth !!! The wide rear tyre does excel at providing a comfy very stable ride in any situation, the suspension system is phenomenal you don't feel the bumps at all!!! The seat, ohhh the comfyyy leathery sofa seat, my butt thanks it still!!
Another nice touch on the bike is the signal lights integration on it, their placement keeps a clean design to the bike, without any hangin bits on the sides, very smartly done!!
All in all, it is a great bike to own, if you seek a mix of a cruiser bike with immense power and sporty handling!!
