In hell, it's cold

A stone sculpture, I stood there,
studying the columns of light,
trough the small grilled window,
some far feet’s high above me,
After a while, the moon slowly emerged,
and the rays of light intensified,
I still don’t move, rooted there,
still in time less than hours,
cold wind spiced with warm air,
and in a while, rain,
soft drizzle at first,
then in time still, stronger
heavier rain, now the moon no more,
and all this from far away,
I cant feel, still I’m rooted,
lazy, depressed not moving.

And finally, I had some internet time, so I went surfing (after deleting about 500+ mails in my 4 email adds...)

I came to these sites:

http://www.thotatharani.com/ This is the website of Padmashree Thota Tharani, arguably the best ever art director in Tamil/ Indian Cinema. Great Website.

http://www.santoshsivan.com/ Santosh Sivan is a cinematographer another heavyweight in the field. A cool website.

http://www.sabucyril.com/ Sabu Cyril is another force in artdirection on par with the above legends and has given some memorable sets/ arts for hit movies including the latest Anniyan.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.
