I know it’s a bit late in the day to sermonize, but well, it’s better late than never. Picking up a few words from the priest’s prayer during his sermon; I found them very helpful, hope you do too…

Lord, give me the Serenity to accept the things which I can’t change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to understand the difference between the two.

Good night folks! God Bless…

Damned!!!

July 24, 2008

Ever had the feeling that no matter what you do, you are going to be destroyed? Has your mind ever wandered in the realms of the state where victory or defeat, achievement or failure, cease to matter? Have you ever been damned? I feel I am.

Very funny, this damned feeling, you know. It creeps up on you surreptitiously, ever silent, though you have a hint it’s lurking in the background. And before you know it, it’s out in the open. It’s the feeling a murderer has when he kills for the first time, a hitman has when he pulls the trigger at his first victim, the hangman has when he sends the first of his charges to death or freedom, your choice. It is the feeling that says, no matter what I do hence, to absolve myself of my sins, to undo what I may have done or undone, I’m damned. There is no turning back, there is no running away. You’ve got to face it. You are damned.

Drunken Realities

July 21, 2008

Heeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooo (hic-hic)

One question: How drunk how you been? Yes, you hear it right. I’m asking you exactly how drunk have you ever been in your long or short lifetime? One pint, two pints, a pitcher, a bottle??? Well, now I know I ain’t a big buzzard, but I’ve got some huge drinking extravaganzas to my credit. A whole bottle of Smirnoff at one time, and once, a plethora of drinks which included beginning with palm toddy, then having some whiskey, then some rum, then some beer, and finally a whole lotta vodka. Yeah baby!!! Alright, stop those wagging fingers and don’t give me those scandalized looks… A man has all the rights to get drunk once in a while – How else do you think he’ll cope with the many problems in his life – women, career, kids, friends, women, money, taxes, women…

In His Time

July 20, 2008

Good Morning beautiful people,

In keeping with the Sunday theme of worship and reverence, i thought I’ll put down my most favorite hymn for you to read, gain inspiration and remember always that God has a plan for all of us. It has a simple and yet wonderful tune, but well, I can’t put it down for you here… Maybe when you watch me live, I’ll play it for ya… Have fun, and keep the Sabbath day holy…

Left Of Center

July 18, 2008

Heya People,

I’ve heard a long wazzup takes away the attention from the material, so well, I’ll begin with a tame “Heya”… After all, I’m meeting you guys in as many as two days, and well, I know for a fact that other than me, nothing very “wazzzzupppppping” has happened in your lives… So here we go again…

The title is ripped off (that’s a first) from a VH1 commercial for Alternative music. What I liked about that commercial is the voice-over which says how Alternative music is seen as an answer to Mainstream, how it tries to be different and not popular, and how it ends up being Mainstream and Popular… And that’s so very true! The British punk-rock underground started as an answer to the heavily-operatic, highly-arena like, larger-than-life heavy metal and hard rock that were ruling the roost in those days. And then the punk bands themselves became mainstream. The most famous example of Alternative music going Mainstream is Nirvana, and how Kurt Cobain couldn’t handle the pressure of the huge popularity that came when Nirvana’s brand of alternative suddenly became the flavor of the time.

But the Left has another, perhaps more relevant and rather sinister meaning. It has officially come to represent the Left-wingers, the Communists, The Comrades, The Socialists, The Men in Red. This is what Wikipedia has to say about it (and I consider it the source of my immense knowledge and wisdom):

In politics, left-wing, the political left, or the Left are terms that refer to politics that seek to reform or abolish existing social hierarchies and promote a more equal distribution of wealth and privilege. In general, the left advocates for a society where all people have an equal opportunity, which they often describe as a “level playing field”.

New World Order

July 15, 2008

Wasssssssssssssuuuuuuuuuuuppppppppppppp peeeeeeeeeeeeooooopppppppppplllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know it ain’t Thursday Night and I know that you were searching high and low for your weekly dosage of it, but you gotta know, I’m in deep shit. I’ve got killer commandos, killer Labradors, killer alligators and killer what-nots behind me, set by all the moral, political, and social police of the world. Why? Because I am a threat to the world order and sanctity and so-called peace! Me!!! A harmless little rat!!! Alright, not little, but harmless nonetheless. And all this because i’m out to change the way we live.

Have you ever pondered where does all the strife in the world emanate from? Where does this stress, lack of peace, internal and external turmoil get generated? As they say, “Charity begins at home”, “Strife also begins at home.” Imagine all the warring husbands and wives, the warring children, the strife between neighbors, the tension between community people. I’m sure when Bush decided to attack Iraq, he must’ve had a major row with his wife. And then he vented all his frustration at Saddam Hussein. Poor Saddam.

So how do we end this? How do we bring about world peace and all the goodies that come with it? I’ve propounded a simple solution. Man and Woman should marry, but stay separate. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey fellas,

I know it’s been a long time and I’m developing a reputation for not keeping up my promises… Well, I’ve been busy and all with work, extra-curricular activities 😉 😉 and the likes… But well, the world hasn’t stopped rotating just because I haven’t written a single byte on my page (I’d love to have such powers, maybe the night and its endless possibilities could be extended 😉 😉 )… But don’t fret, dear one, coz I’ve got Megabytes full of action and adventure lined up for ya…

So finally Barack Obama wins the battle against the White Lady and it’s now for the battle against the big White Republican John McCain. And Indians all over are strangely rejoicing. Maybe it’s because Obama carries a miniature Hanuman with him as his lucky charm. Or maybe they are tired of George ‘Dubya’ Bush and all Republicans in general. But maybe, just maybe, I’ve got the right answer – it is because Barack Obama is black.
