Rhythmic Dissonance

Super Randomness

Posted by in Life, Movies

So, a lot happened since the last post. Here’s a gist: Term 2 ended. I took a four vacation and visited home. Term 3 began. All hell broke lose. Term 3 ended. The world was beautiful again! In the five day break last week, I tried to make the most of the beautiful world and I chose to mostly do nothing to enjoy the days properly. I did, however, watch a cult Hindi movie, Gunda, which was nothing short of a classic. Scene after scene of pure unadulterated, unintentional comedy….read more

2008: Year Ender

Posted by in Happy, Life, Movies, Music, Television, Thoughts

Ah, the last day of the year! Always a good day for introspection. Fortunately for me, I’ve been introspecting for the past 1-2 months and though I am mostly satisfied with how things have been so far, I feel the need to do more in life. So the plan is to continue learning new things. This means I’ll continue learning German (I recently completed German A1 level exam!

My Life as a Movie

Posted by in Life, Movies, Tag

As far back as I can remember, I always imagined my life to be a movie once in a while. And this was much before “The Truman Show”. So in my movie, I am obviously the protagonist and the people I know have key roles of varying importance. Some people have main roles, some recurring, others have guest appearances and then there are lots of extras. Though it can get boring at times, it’s mostly interesting with unexpected twists and turns. Is it common for people to think of their…read more

Show off and Much More

Posted by in Happy, Internet, Life, Movies, Ranting

First things first. Presenting before you, my totally new laptop, an HP Pavilion dv6114tx. I need a name for it. So please suggest a name. It should obviously be a heroic name like Merlin or something. Looks sexy, doesn’t it? (The pic has been deliberately cropped to ensure that you don’t see the wire clutter.) And now, the second showcasing of the post. Yes, its my brand new iPod 80 GB. Please note that my palm just made its second appearance on this blog. And I know that its not…read more
