I just realized...

... that A.R.Rahman is the first music director I have known by name.

And now I can name many.

And she fights for her life...

... no, not in a sad way.

She fights for her life as she puts on her coat.
She fights for her life on the train.
She looks at the rain as it pours.

This video is brilliant. And the song. Vivid and dreamy.

A two-sided blade

Unexpected fortune is a good thing. 'coz it's a fortune nevertheless.

It's bad. 'coz it will kill your peace.

I have my peace in a body bag by the side. You tell me. Should I bury it? Burn it? Or tie it to a concrete slab and drown it in a Bangalore lake?

Well, the last won't work. Hardly many deep lakes in Bangalore.

Reverse. And a bit more.

The bullet.
It came out from the barrel.
I blinked. Once. Twice. It pierced my brows and curdled my brain.
Time stood still. And time wound back.
I felt the bullet crawling out. I blinked. Twice. Once.
The bullet went inside the barrel.
It broke out from the hammer. And killed the shooter.
The bullet.

The Curious Case of Everyone's Life

A cool quote by the Seinfeld character, George Costanza:

"The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. 

I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. 

What do you get at the end of it? 

A death. 

What’s that, a bonus?? 

I think the life cycle is all backwards. 

You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you go live in an old age home. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, then, when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You drink alcohol, you party, and you get ready for high school. You go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities. You become a little baby, you go back, spend your last 9 months floating with luxuries like central heating, spa, room service on tap, then you finish off as an orgasm!

Eddie "You Fuckin' Funny as Hell, Bastard" Izzard

Maniacal (???).
Transvestite (Executive, mind you).

Funny (as fuckin' hell).

Eddie Izzard.

I have never gotten so hooked to a cross-dresser before, and this guy (I don't think he will be too proud of that tag) rocks.

I have watched four of Eddie's shows. I have three pending.

Just finished watching Unrepeatable and thought it was brilliant. I have that feebly weebly throat feeling, you know, that queezy woozy, err, tickly wickly throat feeling you get after a laugh. That one.

If you don't know what I mean, it's the same feeling you will get after watching the following clip. Enjoy.
