Maybe It's Stuck

Maybe it reminds me of myself during the days when I used to think that a kick-butt guitar solo is performed to give the guy singing the song some break, but I love the way Frances McDormand ask s "When does it start?". Check it out -

The main reason for back-to-back rock post is VH1. I was watching their show and some guy was talking about defining moments in Metal history. He mentioned Stairway to Heaven as one of them. I was astonished, Stairway to Heaven - Metal?? When? How? Who? Then I do some research and turns out that they are notorious for such false taxonomy.

Well, I hope they don't label Celine Dion as defining artist in rock and roll based on this. :-)

Playing What We Want

96.5 Jack FM is an interesting radio channel. I have not heard them taking calls from Joe listener to find out what he wants to hear. They skip all middle steps and instead just play what they want :-)

Point is, this morning, their playlist on my way to office was like this -

  • Why Can't This Be Love - Van Halen
  • Video Killed the Radio Star - The Buggles
  • Higher - Creed
  • Def Leppard - Bringin' on the Heartbreak
  • Bangles - Walk Like an Egyptian
  • Blondie - Call Me
  • Guns 'N Roses - Paradise City
  • Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge

It was like someone at radio station was reading my mind (or my iPod) and playing what I want instead :-)

Totally made my morning!

Things Remembered

आई बाबांचा लग्नाचा वाढदिवस होता मागच्या आठवड्यात. तर मी कधी नव्हे ते त्यांना एक bouquet पाठवला. आमच्या पिताजींनी ते courier परत पाठवलं. कारण? त्या मंद rediff.comने त्या bouquetवर माझं नाव लिहिलंच नव्हतं :-) बाबा फ़ोन वर म्हणाले, "मला वाटलं कोणत्यातरी बँकेने पाठवलं असेल ते."

:-) Happy Anniversary, आई बाबा! आणि लवकर बरे व्हा.

येतो मग,

A Funny Sign

Clerks is a funny movie. Some people find it offensive or distasteful, like Pulp Fiction or even Fight Club. But you gotta admit that the movie is freakin hilarious.

Check out this sign from the counter in Quick Stop Groceries -
