Here's the thing. The next time you want to vent to me about how your lover was a bitch, please leave me out of it, unless you also vow to update me on the ensuing patch up, no matter how mushy it was. The mush I can handle, the terrible impression I'll carry around, of your lover, I can't. See, the thing is, yesterday I got to know of a friend A who was getting married, through a mutual friend B. Now B was kind enough to show me the album of A and his beau. When her face registered I was visibly surprised. And no, not in a happy kind of way, but in a I-can't-believe-he's-marrying-her kind of way. Since the time A told me about her (which was two years ago), I have had the worst possible picture about her. Obviously I wasn't on the mailing list, when things patched up. But now I am mad at A, for making me feel so guilty for being such a bitch. I can't help but wonder if she'll make A happy and if I should ever run into them, I'd be eyeing daggers at her wincing that after all she did, he is still marrying her.
So for the love of god, if you want me to feel happy for you when you patch up with your jerk/bitch, save the sob story for someone else.

Get Gorgeous Or UnHinged
"Your personality is zilch"
Thus spake, Alison Kanuga, the jury member of "Get Gorgeous 4" (courtesy Channel [V]). Never mind that her own personality that resembles all the collagen (which looks like its coming off her face) in her system. Fake and plastic.
I hate to break this to you Alison, but if you pick potential candidates for this immensely frivolous show, off the road on the basis of their complexion, figure and dressing sense, you should brace yourself to meet nubiles with no personality or worse, the personality of a goldfish.
"Pack your bags. Your "Get Gorgeous" dream is over/has ended"
Its become commonplace for jury members of such reality shows to be acrimonious and unnecessarily brutal with the contestants. Simon Cowell sort of set the precedent for Shantanu Mehra and other other shows that host judges like Ismail Darbar, Aadesh Shrivastav, Himesh Reshammiya and Asha Bhonsle even.
Much to my chagrin, I was made to sit through a singing talent show called "Idea Star Singer Contest" on Asianet. I was pleasantly surprised by the sensitivity and friendliness of the judges like MG Sreekumar. They respect the sentiments of an artist and don't really bicker among themselves or threaten to leave the show at the drop of a hat (which I have always seen as a gimmick to push TRP, really).
I never thought I'd say this, but Simon, watch some Asianet will you? Oh, Alison, you too.

Precious Words of Wisdom
"You can go on talking bullshit and continue that bullshit. I am totally impervious, repeated bullshit doesn't become wisdom,"
"It doesn't matter to me at all that I have lost my good name judged by some people who are bad. Bad people will always judge wrong."
I am blinded by Ram Jethmalani's astute wisdom and sense of judgement. Since when did "bullshit" become acceptable language for Main Stream Media? And if the octagenarian, Jethmalani has indeed uttered thus sacred words, I must say he's catching up with the times. And the fact that we share the same birthday, leaves me feeling less than proud.

Damien Rice on Tour
The love of my life, Damien Rice is on tour. Needless to say, he's touring in the US. So any Damien fans out there wanting to go see him live, well, go grab your chance :) And any particularly philantropic fans willing to assist another fan to travel across a few seas and continents to see Damien play live, please drop a line. I promise to be your slave all my life.

Welcome To The Freak Show
I signed on with Google Analytics two weeks ago, just to know what kind of searches bring freaks to my blog. Here's two that really amused me:
"how to give a guy space so he'll miss you"
"did i scare him off?"
Obviously, the searches were made by women or gay men. Either way, this is the thing. If you find answers to these elsewhere, please let me know if it works. I'd sure as hell like to try.

She: K, What's your all time, ultimate, most favourite song evaaaaa?
Me: No one song.
She: I used to be that way too, but now I have some favourites shaping up
Me: I am very fickle by nature. Whether its work or places or men or women or philosophy or even my music. All depends on the situation or mood. I have trouble even committing to a song choice
She: (With a smirk) So you are even more promiscuous than I am, huh?
Me: Yep, I am an ideological slut
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen.
