SECRET SERVICE.. Oh Really!!!

April 9, 2008

Last night I was watching Vantage point.. (With no regards to the fact that I had an exam in 14 hrs.. for which I hadn’t started studying)

Seemed like a good movie.. Interesting plot.. good Production values Etc Etc..

Forest Whitaker ( The african american actor with the lazy eye, hangs around throughout the movie like a stupid retarded kid with a sony HDV camera [ Surely Sony must have paid Shitloads] I mean.. there he is.. breathing hard like he’s having an orgasm.. by just looking at the buildings through his camera ).

Dennis Quaid ( Looks like an old man [ Which he is], who also incidentally is breathing hard throughout the movie and acts as if the president is his son, and he MUST protect him at all costs) gives all acting capabilities real doubts..

And the movie is of course this cool concept of seven view points to the same set of events..

And the whole bit about america and president using a double (As If) and then the real president getting abducted.

And of course the new Hollywood Fad of Using a HOT-Female-Terrorist with an anccent (Whats with that anyway)

Now finally getting to the title ( I am sorry.. I know)

I am sitting and giving an exam and actually not writing and thinking of a review of Vantage Point.

I think of this scene where Dennis Quaid flashes his Secret Service Badge & gun at this Spaniard who obviously I am sure does not give a fuck about him or his services.. no matter how secretive they might be..

I mean.. IF YOU ARE THE SECRET SERVICE.. why even have a badge that proves that you are with em’.. just say it’s a secret right..

Funny thing people do..

My question is.. Is the service a secret or the services which they might provide..

Either ways.. just keep it a secret..

When you are an unknown guy walking in a suit, right next to the president with an earpiece.. Its a DEAD Giveaway that you work for the NOT SO SECRET SERVICE.

Stewie for Governor!! Ssshh.. It’s a secret…

Some women I tell you…

April 4, 2008

Ladies & Gentlemen..

Ladies in particular..

Some women are just an enigma. An endearing thought that lingers in your mind all day &  all night. You just sit lost in the thought of them. There is nothing especially lustful or sexual. The thought is a mere thought, but its strong enough to eclipse others.

With every passing day, the mere sight of her makes you think.. think more.. think less..

The women in our lives are so important..

Stewie for Governor!! Sigh….

Indiblogger Meet – Monetising – $ Dreams

April 1, 2008

It was the day after farewell.. I had almost forgotten about the Pune Indiblogger Meet

It was to start at 4 Pm in Symbiosis Bhawan here. I left the house for precisely two reasons

1. Vineet Rajan (Who Was organising it!!)

2. Free Pizza (As was promised by Vineet)

The show started quite alrilte, with people walking in and introducing. I am fairly new to blogging and wasn’t really sure of what to expect.

The first thing was something of an introduction by the organisers and then all the bloggers present.

It was during this session that I realised.. A lot of prople make serious money with blogging.

I mean i had heard of AdSense.. But these guys were spewing out names of Adsites like an overflowing gutter in monsoon..

Kontera, Snap, This That..

And then this very normal.. stepping-into-middle-age-kinda-geek guy gets up on stage and shows us that he made upwards of  $50000 in a month.. he had been that kind of money with 200+ sites.. And I was like WO – HO..

Ever since then I had been crawling around trying to figure out the easy way to a car (Hheheheh)

But, I wonder if blogging going to burst at seams and become like Newspaper Classifieds..

RACE – To the exit..

March 24, 2008

There are movies with the right amount of twists & Turns.. and then there are movies which have one FATEFUL twist in the plot

AND THEN..

There are movies like ‘RACE’ which are like the mazes at amusement park.

The movie seemed like a Great but Unsuccessful attempt at a big banner murder mystery thriller.. The first 30 mins are ok.. even good.. good production qualities and some great shots.

But after 30 mins, it’s all downhill.. and by the end it started reminding me of Saas-Bahu ‘K’ Serials where people keep coming back from the dead.. and eveyone seems to be having a relationship with everyone else..

Another question which comes to my mind is.. What the hell was that Reddy chick doin in the movie.. I mean Anil Kapoor himself seemed like excess baggage and add to that the reddy chick (I am sorry I don’t know her first name.. too much confusion.. too many sisters)

Which police department would employ such worthless buffoons.. What the hell.. Why did south africa agree to such buffoonery at their expense..

All in all this movie was an utter waste of money and time.. The last time I felt this cheated was when I went for ‘No Smoking’.. but at least that movie had some artistry.

This movie seemed like an ad for Provogue and BMW. (Both of which are very good)

and to top it all.. all this happened for 200 million (what currency is not clear).. I mean a website is worth more.. even a blog ( Hint Hint)..

Oru Cup Chaaya…

October 28, 2007

late may 2007..

A small room in Ruby Tourist Home with an attached bath and red curtains in Vallanjambalam ( The temple at the turn).. also a neighbourhood in ernakulam.

The small room had a window which looked out into a small courtyard. A courtyard which was covered with a thick sheet of Heat Absorbing, Wind stopping, Greenhousing Asbestos… and just so that people do not forget… IT IS LATE MAY.. AND IT IS KERALA…

It has been a month and a half of roaming.. incessant roaming.. sometimes pointless.. sometimes fruitful.. but mostly in the sun doing up and down shop stairs asking the same questions replete with misunderstood statements made in a salad of languages… Communication is not difficult.. it is conversation that stumps me.

I have met 40 something Dark, Hairy, Big men called lo and behold “BABY JOSEPH”.. yes.. I kid you not..

I have felt the pleasant feeling of meeting a fellow tamilian.. or seeing a quick familiar gesture on hearing I am with the horlicks company..

There is great comfort in routine.. No ugly turns.. No guesswork.. you know exactly what tomorrow holds in store.. (By store I wish to intend a PUN.. one that I will be going to a lotta stores.. and two is what it means)

So getting back to Late May 2007..

The day would begin nice and early with a sweaty neck.. which used to wake me up everyday.. which pissed me off so much.. the irritating summer sweat in the neck.. eeewww… followed with a warm shower at 7 am.. warm water at 7 friggin am and there is no concept of hot water for bating (I will get to hot water at a later post) in kerala..at least in may.. The water was hot on it’s own.

715 and I was out.. walking to the nearby hotel.. go ahead and order myself an APPAM or a DOSHA.. topped with copious amounts of sambar and chutney..In this place like many of the small hotels.. there is no concept of single serving sambar or chutney.. if you want you could bathe your dosa in sambar

It was really difficult to choose between the DOSHA or APPAM.. even though the similarity is uncanny with the sambar..but still..

I would occasionally Indulge in a cup of KADALA (The aftertaste will linger for a while.. better be prepared for that) with the appam.. or better still order PAROTTA..but only sometimes.. Kadala is a spicy dish made with Kale Chane.. Little too spicy to be had everyday.. But a day saver when you just want to wake up..Parotta is something which is a crispy flaky parantha in the morning.. when it is made.. In the afternoon when it is just heated and served.. it also acts like a stepney in case you have a flat…

The breakfast set the foundation for another day in kerala for me..

But it was never quite a complete experience… without ORU CUP CHAYA.. or one cup tea.. the beauty of weak kerala tea after a heavy spicy breakfast followed with a swift smoke on the way to the bus stop IS an experience in itself..

Man I miss the breakfast at (the hotel I never saw the name of but went to everyday)

Kimi wins.. but 2006 will remain in memory

October 22, 2007

World F1 Champion – Kimi Raikkonen – Iceman – Flying Finn… But not schumi….

I guess fir the next twenty years.. not a single champion will not be compared with the german.

Kimi had a good race.. Hamilton showed he’s a fighter or a Rookie. It will depend on perspective.

But 2006 will remain etched in my memory.For that matter in global memory.

Schumi’s tyre bursts, He pits, Drops to 17th and he’s still in the race.

He finishes 4th, Shy of world championship. Alonso Wins. Gets no attention.

That was a race. Yesterday, It was just another race.

I feel bad for Kimi, Not for the money he makes of course.

But for playing second fiddle. Even as a champion.

Stewie for Governor!! Racing to the top.
