it all boils down to the same old things

Like one of my favourite travis songs goes

Its about that moment, that pharase, that word, that point of time....

And the best part is that you 'get' it at the end of it all....

Well as they say hindsight is 20/20

Stumbleupon

Most of my movie, tv series discoveries actually come via referrals from friends...case in point being the last few TV series that i have been hooked on like Dexter , Entourage , How I Met Your Mother or lately Boardwalk Empire

Now lately after lot of subtle and not so subtle nudges and prods from some of my friends i have discovered the joys of nuclear fission as the worlds of geeks and hot chicks collide...no im not talking about Beauty and the Geek have to admit that my guts cant take reality television....but thats a different story. Now case in point being The Big Bang Theory which could be explained as "centered around five characters: two roommate Caltech geniuses, experimental physicist Leonard Hofstadter and theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper; their neighbor across the hall Penny, an attractive blonde waitress and aspiring actress; and Leonard's and Sheldon's equally geeky and socially awkward co-workers and friends Howard Wolowitz, an Aerospace engineer and a non-PhD from JPL, and Rajesh Koothrappali, a particle astrophysicist postdoc also working at Caltech. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys are contrasted for comic effect with Penny's social skills and common sense.[3][4] Three other supporting characters have also been promoted to main cast status for a few episodes: Leslie Winkle, a Caltech colleague of Leonard, Sheldon, and Raj; Bernadette, a microbiology student who works with Penny part time as a waitress; and Amy Farrah Fowler, a friend of Sheldon, who is a girl, but not a girlfriend"

linkin park

Drafted this in august 10th 2004, thats like 6 years back...pretty much around the time i passed out of TSM...wonder how much i have changed since then.....hmmm


i like this band !
I adore them !
ok thats it !
now like the random musings of every kid im goin on the same route
the first linkin song that caught my attention was "in the end "
the frank admission of despair and hopelessness at that point of time seemed to be the right thing for me to listen to ...........................

"i tried so hard
went so far ........
but in the end
it doesnt even matter ..."

it sounded so purrfect...

well its been almost a year since then
i fell in love for the first time
had the best time of my life
got somebody to talk to
share ur childish fears
and insecurities....
somebody who tried to go beyond the obvious image drawn by the proximate public opinion and understand the person beyond the skins displayed for the seemingly endless list of wants,needs and aspirations...........

guess im getting too philosophical about something perfectly normal..........

well i dont know

now since all that we have broken up
and life has come to a standstill no that sounds very cliched but yes it does leave behind a vacuum which u find hard to fill......

u start analysing and conjuring up the "if" and "but" situations.....
conduct simulated war games in ur mind....

Bottlenecked

Before i restart my blogging efforts magnificus....im gonna try to offload almost all of the draft posts...most of them are a reflection of my state of mind...some of em have a personal flavour and some are more within the innocent bystander bucket

Felix !

Not too often that you start a post about another post ...

I'm talking about a short vacation trip taken by a colleage, Igor ofcourse like a lot of us he is much more than a linkedin entry, but for the sake of convenience and my own laziness i would stick to this for the time being. Ofcourse you could also google and hunt down Igor from the interwebs :)

So, Igor and Marta took a trip down to Yemen and you could read about it here on Zaher's blog.

Ofcourse, Yemen is an awesome place for a million reasons....apart from being the cradle of the Arab civilization,it is also one of those few places on earth where you could find an unadulterated state of life without necessarily straying outside the capital city.

Yemen !

Have you ever wanted something so badly and not had it ?

Whats the most insane and way out of the way thing you have ever tried when you want something so badly ?

When was the last time you really went out of your way to get something ?

And if you did..... how far out there did you go ?

Did you really put yourself exposed and out there ?

Ying or Yang or YIANG !

Im not sure if most of our web persona's serve multiple purposes (personal and professional) in a balanced manner. For to pose more existentially, should they serve such purposes in the first place ?

I have dwelled over this question in light of a fairly active twitter account that i maintain here a facebook account with a pretty heavy base of my professional relations here. In the first place as one of the first generations to tackle the subject of blurring social and professional lines are we there yet to take such calls ?

The web presents an opportunity to do an A/B testing with most things,so i guess there is no harm in trying out a combined effort...besides im in the digital media industry for a simple reason that its more than jus charts and figures so i better find interesting ways to talk business :)
