You decide.

If duets were contests

Then this song is no contest. Chinmayi wades into it so deftly that Harish Raghavendra is left gasping for breath.

It's like Federer taking on..say..Lleyton Hewitt. You know the opponent is gifted, but at the end of the day, Federer wraps things up so neatly, it's really quite unbelievable.

Seems obvious now

Google's Open Source Program Manager, Chris DiBona, is a fellow Slashdotter.

2 points

1. A shady looking website is casting aspersions on the English victory.

2. (More Brokeback stuff - what can I do? I keep coming across these things) Turns out, not only does the movie have gay cowboys called "Jack" and "Ennis", there's also (get this) a sheep farmer played by an actor called Randy Quaid!

Wow, and I thought Ang Lee was deep with "Wo hu cang long"..

Where *IS* all this action?

Jerry Pinto wrote a Bombay Times article about how kids are doing it left, right and centre in schools.

Ravi Rao told me people do it left, right and centre while in college.

News articles say people are doing it left, right and centre in their workplaces.

What come I seem to be the only one missing out on all this action?

Life just isn't fair.

The Mountain of Mystery

One can understand the "Brokeback Mountain" is a movie about gay cowboys. Gay as in man lovin' a man.

Quite possibly, this is portrayed with great sensitivity in the movie, and not something like Cartman going neener-neener. This portrayal is bound to be talked about, in which course the world would find out that it's a movie about gay cowboys.

And yet, as if to drive home the point, the protagonists are called "Jack" and "Ennis". Surely this must cause a few sniggers!

I cannot hold back any longer

Yes, I must say it. I'm in love.

I love you, Wendy. I'll wait for you to grow up.

Spoke too soon :'(

over here. Looks like it's not returning after all.

Just when I find something interesting enough to warrant logging into Blogger and put up stuff, I have to recant. Life just sucks :/

Internet Explorer


Don't use it.

Use Opera! Or, grudgingly, FF..but don't say I didn't warn you.

Anyways, stay away from the Interweb Exploder. All it needs is a two-word review:

Brokeback Mountain: An SMS review

Why would anybody want to see "Brokeback Mountain"?
My reply:
Hey, for the powerful emotions it arouses, and its bold exploration of a
hitherto neglected segment of society, that has languished in closets the world
over. The way the two protagonists initially give in to the ways of the world
and abandon their personal preferences for adhering to societal norms, and then
throw caution to the winds and reconcile themselves to who they really are, is
masterfully depicted by that old warhorse of allegory - Ang Lee.
Thank God for T9!

Disclaimer: I have not seen the movie. That is exactly why I rock :-)

While still on the topic

of behind-punting, I might as well throw in Indian Ocean.

Was meaning to blog about me attending their concert (yeah!). Rocked beyond all measure. Bah, who needs dope..

And that's just the synopsis!

Just finished reading a synopsis of the Mahabharata [Courtesy: Mama, Shakuni mama]. Sans B.R Chopra's magnificent special effects, of course, but with all the intrigue intact.

Addendum to earlier post: Crazy Frog also kicks hiney. Especially when he's not been censored :-D

Holy krap!

Ronaldinho kicks so much posterior I get goose-pimples.

He rocks - almost as much as Legolas (from the movie), bot honestly nobody can be that good...

But Mr. President...

In response to a bomb explosion near the U.S Consulate in Karachi, George Dubya Bush had this to say:
"Terrorists and killers are not going to prevent me from going to Pakistan."
Ah, but Mr. President, they will prevent you from coming back from Pakistan.
