That some songs were longer than they are? That they would not end and keep going on and on?
And no, looped repeat is not what I am talking about!
Oh yes it does.. It was just sometime ago that I was going through the whole application process. And now it seems to be that time again.
Work had been hectic the past few weeks. Completed a major task at work so things are better now and seem to be slowing down now.
Got a new MP3 player, a SanDisk Sansa Fuze. It’s flash based and really cool. My colleague thinks it is very cute (yes she is a girl ;) )
I’ll soon be joining a short course called Social Entrepreneurship Outreach Program (SEOP) by a group known as Center for Social Initiatives and Management (CSIM).
Oh and I’ve been reading quite a few books as usual. Quick list of books I’ve read recently:
Oh and I think there were a few more but I don’t remember. I’m sure you can imagine why ;)
These are in the past 4-5 months (except the Watchmen Graphic novel)
More later.. Hopefully..
So I’ve been busy. Old news what!
Past few weeks have run away like seconds.
Two trips – Jaipur for a wedding and Pondicherry for a holiday. More trips likely this year with one definite. Want to try and go to Goa at least once this year. Could not go last year which sort of broke my promise to myself to go there at least once a year.
Work has been hectic and killing. But is sort of fun because I am in charge. BM coding has slowed down too slightly since folks at home so am always with them. This sucks because I have a lot of stuff I want to do but do not have the time to
No time for photography. Reading has slowed down too. Sleep seems to always hover around me but not for enough time.
Time seems to be flying away. Apparently relativity is hot around me but without the pretty girl.
Found this lovely video of a addictive song and an beautiful voice. Have listened to it at least 15-20 times in the past 2 days. I think it was a very good discovery. Nice songs on the singer’s (Emily Wells) myspace page too. I think I really like her voice and her unique style of singing. Will keep track of her.

Birthday was celebrated in the trip to Jaipur. Turned out to be a fabulous day capped off by an awesome party; not due to my birthday but the bachelor’s party of the groom whose wedding I was attending there. His wife is lovely. They are staying with us for this month so yay..
Elijah wood of LoTR fame is featured in this music video. While the song is nice, the video itself is surreal with Wood and others doing a weird little dance with a straight face :D
I think the dj in Purple Haze, Koramangala rocks.
He played one band after another from my favorites list without knowing of it obviously ;)
Sample – Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Audioslave, Metallica, Ratm, RHCP (in no particular order)
I’d go there just for the music.. (though I’m slightly high right now.. Shhhh ;) )
I feel sad. Chris Cornell, the fomer lead vocalist of Soundgarden is now the former lead vocalist of broken up Audioslave! I am disappointed and sad. I think they made some brilliant music and were a great band.
I love the song “Like a Stone” which is one of my favorites!
There are also rumors that the rest of Audioslave who were all part of the now broken Rage Against the Machine(RATM) might team up with RATM frontman Zack de la Rocha for a one off concert later this year. And that might be the precursor to the reformation of the highly successful band.
But I think that does not compensate for Audioslave breaking up :(
Dani California is the latest single from Red Hot Chilli Peppers and is also a part of their latest album, Stadium Arcadium. The music is typical RHCP but it’s the video which is very different. In this, they have, in their way, paid homage (parodied ?) to the best rock bands from the sixties.
I watched the video yesterday and was left laughing at their idea and antics. I mean, some of the bands they have represented (which I could identify) were so real looking I was amazed. Watch the video and try to identify the bands on your own before reading further. It contains the bands I identified, and am quite certain about.
