Everyday Story...

The Fray
.
Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it's just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
And you begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And pray to God he hears you

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

R.I.P.

My Specs, my pyare specs, died in an unfortunate accident today.

It was aprroximately 1 year old.


It was rimless, scratchless and spotless.

Well, very tragic death, I must say. A car ran over it. Instant death.

My dear old (dead) specs, though a new shiny another specs will replace you, I just want to say, I loved you. Very Much.

Sigh...

Calvin and Hobbes!!!!!!

Ok, I finally managed to find any required strip of Calvin and Hobbes!!!!

I am a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan. I wrote about them first
here ...

Ok ok, enough of advertisement :p

I made use of two search engines, exclusively for CnH.

First, I find the text of a CnH strip here by giving the date of publication.

Then, I get some unique text out of it, and search for them Here...

Cooooooooooool Haaan?

Here is a series, in which Calvin and Hobbes... ok ok you read it. :)


































***
Note the strip, in which Calvin picks a candy bar wrapper ...
PS: Click on the images to get better readability...
PPS: If you have better search engines for CnH, pls let me know.
PPPS: ok ok there is no PPPS, but it looks good. Right?
PPPPS: same reason as above :p

Planes .. Planes!!!!!

Atlast some excitement in life !!!!!!

I had been to
Aero India 2007 last Saturday!!!

Just one word , Fantastic !!!

It was my first ever Aero Show. I loved it!!! I loved it!!! I loved it!!! I loved it!!! I loved it!!!


First let me tell ya, I've never been in an aeroplane, never saw them from such close range :p
My closest encounter with planes is the flight simulator computer game, where, ahem ahem, I maneuvered F-16s and Shot down the enemy planes!!!

Show started at 11 AM. But we could reach
there only at around 12.
I think we didn't miss much. But there was heavy crowd.So I just avoided all the exhibitions :-(

Anyways, at 3 PM, the much awaited air displays started!!.


There were all kind of planes, from small charter planes to helicopters, from Fighter jets to huge, mighty planes.

My first expression when I saw them parked (??), "Does these things really fly??" :-)

Yes, they did and how!!!!



There was
Mirage-2000



Finally, our own colorfull Surya Kirans!!!



But, it was Sukhoi , which stole the show. ** Loved It **




More than the view of these monster planes, I loved thier Roar as they took-off and flew right above us!!

Just amazing.

Jeremy ...

"Jeremy", one of the best songs of grunge band Pearl Jam.
Read this article about song (Wiki).
Listen to the song here. ( YouTube, hopefully the link shouldn't be broken :-) )

I don't know, this song makes me sad all the time. Such dark lyrics ... Note the irony in lyrics when he says "king Jeremy". Video is kind of confusing in the end. Only recently I came to know that, it's not Jeremy killing all the students in the class, but it's him, killing himself.

Lyrics below is stolen from here.
"Jeremy"

At home
Drawing pictures
Of mountain tops
With him on top
Lemon yellow sun
Arms raised in a V
Dead lay in pools of maroon below
Daddy didn't give attention
To the fact that mommy didn't care
King Jeremy the wicked
Ruled his world

Jeremy spoke in class today ...
Jeremy spoke in class today ...

Clearly I remember
Pickin' on the boy
Seemed a harmless little fuck
But we unleashed a lion
Gnashed his teeth
And bit the recess lady's breast
How could I forget
He hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurting
Dropped wide open
Just like the day
Like the day I heard
Daddy didn't give affection
And the boy was something that mommy wouldn't wear
King Jeremy the wicked
Ruled his world

Jeremy spoke in class today ...
Jeremy spoke in class today ...
Try to forget this...
Try to erase this...
From the blackboard ...
