Assume

assume you are correct and others are wrong
assuming others are like that
assuming you needed attention
assuming you pretend to care
assume you dont care what they say
assuming that they know what you say
assume you know the rules
assuming the world goes by that rule
assume you are correct
but you are not
[+] The strangest things at 4 am, and its not even a poem. Its just about life, and how others think of it and how I love to assume they are wrong.

When Do You Become Someone?

I always think of a very good reason before I call home. When I was back in the university, it is mostly for money, never for advice. When I was doing (the now dead) postgrad studies it was slightly less about money, more because I was homesick and never for advice. And now when I got myself a decent job, albeit not a permanent one, I call home just to say hi. But every single time I am reduced to that depths of depression when I call people who somehow always, ALWAYS make me feel stupid and lost.

Its about lost hopes, and our families are not responsible for it but they go to all the unnecessary lengths to make it like we blew it big time. Well tough luck, sorry to give you the bad new, it has been blown, trashed, fcked to significantly insignificant proportions.

Before I go further, to the geniuses who seems to somehow find all the time in the world to advice my family on what is good and bad for me, and just happen to read my blog, please do go tell them what I wrote here too. Don…

The 80th Oscars

Talent and Class

Jon Stewart was too good,
the show was simple and 'short',
the winners are from around the World!
and Daniel Day-Lewis was as excellent as ever.

And the music was magical because they dared to dream
Time to dig into more movies and work...
Have a nice week ahead everyone!

[O..O]

Doing exactly that for the weekend...

Gmail in 37 Languages

[Updated Feb 20, 11.22] It's Back! This is freaky :D
[Updated Feb 20] Hey, the Malay option is gone! gasp! this is not fair, Google is just testing out the languages or was it launched already? Hmmm....

Gmail introduced 37 languages for its new version interface starting February 13. The languages includes popular Asian languages such as Malay, Bahasa Indonesia, Tagalog, Thai, Chinese and Hindi. Naturally I'd be waiting for Tamil soon.

This is the Malay interface, the terms and flow of the language is good, in all the translation is very good.

The F Word!

Guess What!

2.22

it's 2.22
my house mate has been yakking on the phone for the last 2 hours!
hope his ears burn and fall off
I am procrastinating
deliberating my next move
whether to sleep or work
or to eat
I hear freaky sounds
from the staircase at the end of the block
or maybe the lift just falling off
with somebody inside
then I have a real cause
to move away from this apartment
today I celebrate something
which I forgot
just like how I forgot the deadline yesterday
I am happy to be non aligned with anything
a non aligned ghost...NAG...huh! forget it
deliberation
deliberating
defibrillator
demagogic
d-mango
:D
this is not a poem
i just mentioned reverse psycho effect to Solitaire
is there such a thing
(by now you would have realized
that either I don't have no idea whatsoever to write a decent post,
or I am lazy to bring out the idea and elaborate it,
or I am just lazy
too lazy
to type)

Where is the Freedom (of Democracy)?

[Update] Despite the crackdown in Kuala Lumpur, the rally went on around the world. Probably its time the authorities listen to the Indian community and remove the MIC Leader Samy Vellu, it's clearly a protest against him.
The Star [160 held after illegal ‘rose rally’]
"From the total, 151 were later released, including rally coordinator S. Manickavasagam and Hindraf adviser R. Raguram. Also released was an 11-year-old girl."
More photo updates[Rose4PM].

[Update 5pm] No new updates, the same story cycling in BBC, AlJazeera. I think everything is calm now (?). Will be waiting to find out about BMahen later tonight (updated 5.30pm; he is released from the temporary detention, he just updated in his sites shoutbox).

Sometimes I wonder if we Indians here has just turned into crowd followers, like following he…

I Am Superman

I Think.

I think I am Superman,
without the powers
And everyone around me is Dr. Octopus,
with 100 times superpowers
You see how my demons,
are not even from the same universe!
I honestly think,
all this is a big curse

It's not strange that,
people don't know I don't have powers
As I stand from my balcony,
I imagine looking at them from the tallest towers
They ask me to rescue them,
without realizing I cant fly
And all I can do,
is give up and cry

I think I am Superman,
without the powers
The world's in trouble,
and I send tributes of flowers
Sometimes delusions blind me,
even I don't know this
I want to see through walls,
but all that shall remain a wish

The girl across the street,
she's in my dreams
To make her my heroin,
I go to the extremes
I wore a cape,
kissed her in the rain
After that,
all I can remember is the pain

Music is Dead

And they continue to glorify junkies and suicidal maniacs....all hail freedom of expression. Rubbish like Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears should be put in jail for a very long time. With all the money they have, you'd think they would at least lead a good life...Good music is dying. At this rate, every drug addict, etc can come out with a record and sell millions to unsuspecting teenagers who would eventually follow the crap their idols are doing. Yes, the fans are immature, thats why this 'new age' artists can be considered to be unique and fresh. Along with whatever hard core stupid stuff that comes from hip hop and rap. This is not to say they are not talented, but their personal problems are not for us, it is not right, we have the right to judge what should be known and shown to the younger fans. So ban the news or ban the source?
(Or maybe I'm just way too old for award shows and 21st century popular music?)

It's a mad world...

Not being wiser to see the correct path every time I go wrong (if this can be called a 'moment'…

Tempus Confinis

in the vague search for originality, we draw lines curved to be different from the other.
the crossings was a bad memory everyone tries to erase, the lines should not be the same, straight lines mean same ideas, the melting sea, the corroding winds, the timeless sun, all are same.
the unmoving poisonous universe, not breeding difference but similarity all over, the same endless strings and atoms and matter and nebula.
no end.

Another 4 am post....

Just finished reading half of the blogs in my roll. But cant seem to comment in any. Feels like I leave the lamest comments in most of the blogs. I get spaced out so easily, ridiculous attention span. Will try again tomorrow.
Been listening to the same song looped since last night. Nice Tamil song (someone Youtubed it):

Had a breather from work today...since its the CNY and no client or agency will be at work. But nope, not everyone in the world celebrates this holiday, so probably I'll get more files in the morning. I think I'm turning into a robot. My brain(s) exercises 16 hours a day, pity that I don't.
This is a melancholic rant post.
How you guys been? 2008 is fast, very fast right?
Went to a numerologist /astrologer last Saturday. Looks like I'm getting married this year...which means only one thing. I need to get my passport ASAP and get my ass out of this country for a few years. Ghosts don't get married. Please God, no.
On a sadder note, it seems my migraine wil…
