A few random thoughts

Don’t you hate it when you have thoughts in your mind which by themselves cannot make a full post, but are still too big to condense down into 140 characters. I recently had a few of these, so am combining them into one post. Enjoy.

  • Recently, two people i know met, fell in love and are now getting married. Most people around me are saying “Oh, it is just like a movie”. To them i say “No, this is nothing like a movie”. I am happy for the guys who found each other, but this comes nowhere near a movie. In a movie, people meet, hate each other, through convoluted circumstances start seeing each other more frequently, eventually realize that they are falling in love, but are both seeing other people. Finally, one of them decides to get married(normally the girl), and the movie ends with a mad dash to the wedding and an admission of love in front of a gathered audience (and we will assume marriage and happily ever after, since no movie goes that far). So, am i right or have i been watching too many romantic comedies?
  • I realized that i only look for 3 points in any romantic comedy i watch: 1. There should be a clear hero and heroine, i need to know who i need to root for ending up together. 2. Funny and completely outlandish scenarios which would never occur in real life. 3. The hero and the heroine ending up together. What can i say, i am easy to please.
  • Just read “Diary of a wimpy kid”. Brilliant book, and a very fast read. Also bought all 3 books in the Dexter series for pretty cheap.
  • Cracked.com, TV Tropes, Mental Floss and Neatorama. Stay away from these sites if you ever want to get any work done. Seriously, these sites are like the internet equivalent of black holes, you go in, and never come out.
  • Going to watch the Champions league matches this weekend at the Rajiv Gandhi stadium here in Hyd. Looking forward to my first live cricket experience. Hoping for Gilly, McCullum, Gibbs etc. to be in good hitting form and for the rain to stay away.
  • The last few and upcoming Hindi movies have had english titles majorly, here is a selection: “Wanted” “Whats your Rashee” “Wake Up Sid” “Do Knot Disturb” “Blue” “Acid Factory” “London Dreams” “All the best” “Radio”. Trying to woo the discerning Indian viewer i guess.
  • The new “How i met your mother” season has got off to a brilliant start with 3 of the funniest episodes i have seen in the series. The “Check dance” in episode 2 is just classic.
  • Watched “The Ugly Truth”, probably the most misogynistic movie you may ever see. Strangely enough, the movie had 3 female writers. And it doesn’t help that watching Gerard Butler now just reminds me of “300”, i half expect him to say “This… is….SPARTA” in most scenes.
  • Dont you hate it when life takes a turn towards irony country?
  • Pisceans Rule, no reason why, they just do. Lets accept it as the truth and move on.
  • Lata Mangeshkar celebrated her 80th Birthday recently, here are my top 5 Lata songs, Seeing how there are a huge number of songs to choose from, your top fives may not have a single song from mine, but here goes:  5. “Dil deewana bin sajna ke” – Maine pyaar kiya. Brilliant song and brings back a lot of childhood memories.  4. “Gaata Rahe Mera Dil – Guide, this song is just freshness personified.  3. “Yeh Kahaan Aa Gaye Hum” – Silsila, I just love this song, everything from Lata’s voice to Amitabh’s interludes are just perfect.  2. “Jab Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya” – Mughal-e-Azam, Grandeur.   1. “Tere bina zindagi se koi” – Aandhi, this song is essentially the perfect storm, a great movie, great music, great lyrics and topped off by what I consider Lata Mangeshkar’s best vocal performance.
  • Anyone know when “Ishqiya” is releasing? The trailer was just too good, but no news after that.
  • Blue is the colour. Right on top where they deserve to be.
  • But Europe belongs to the Catalans.

Well, with that, i am outta here. Cya soon.

Until Next Time,

K.C.G
