Media My Ass and All Else

[#] So you switch on the TV to watch the evening news and you get this "Bridge collapse in Modern America" (transliterated from Tamil - sounds more like 'in modern day America, a bridge collapses' if you understand Tamil). WTF!, I mean what the fuck! Where do these people learn how to read news, who the fuck writes news these days? Is it outsourced or something? Fuck you Astro 8pm Tamil News. It's like they're saying bridges should not collapse in America? What does modernity has to do anything; with bridges collapsing?! Look at you backyard lah!

And then CNN...fucking fake faces everywhere...the news readers, the reporters, everyone!

It stops here, it stops right now. No more news anywhere other than BBC and AlJazeera.

[#] A silly bug has been free-diving in my room for the past hour. Cant seem to whack it! I hate insects. But when you get bats or swallows free-diving...better RUN!

[#] I just realized I remember more than 20 passwords! Not written anywhere, it's all in my brain...words, numbers,'s like I'm a Number Ghost! but I still suck in math...

You need to get rid of some passwords before your brain explodes.

The 24/7 American Newsmachine/whore thrives on this sort of event. Stuff like this happens around the world everyday but 1 American = 1000 other Earthlings.
Now that News has morphed into Infotainment and is more focussed on selling advertising time than informing..well it drives me frickin' crazy and is there really any point in arguing about it. If there is a way to make a buck they are going to do it.

It is pathetic.

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.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
