Lady Gaga's pop latest is not being aired in Lebanon where everything current or fashionable is all the rage and spun to its death by radio stations.

"I went to Doculand last day to print some paperwork, the employee refused to print it when he saw the blue bird (twitter) and called the manager, she also refused ! I hate to argue… I asked her naively if this is Jack Dorsey orders?! She didn’t answer and ask to read my document...and start reading all my case study! Then she said to her colleague that my document is clear to be printed !!!!Apparently she was searching for a "Revolution"or "kidnapping" word ! I thanked her for printing my papers and wasting my time, she said that the Lebanese authorities forbid public printers to print Twitter logo!!! Who said that the social media revolution start on paper???!!!!"

"It’s been an unusual year so far. All these revolutions and the establishment of the Island of Misfit Dictators, the wind of change blowing our way, can’t even say it’s a dream come true because I’m sure most people didn’t see it coming in their wildest dreams. Yet, in the midst of this surge of national pride, some things never change, such as the willingness of some people to put the same amount of energy needed to fuel a revolution into something as trivial as arguing over a football match."
