Wooden Woodpeckers

Don't peck at it. ;-)


Disclaimer: To the guys mentioned below: If you feel insulted, then don't get upset with me. Hey, the truth hurts. Do this: Just ask the other people (below) if you deserve the Dunce Cap after what you did (or are doing). You'll see nods of agreement :-P

... ... ...

KP's zis guy youknow. He's a Dumbass. You see, he needs some marks to pass a course. And ofcourse, there are some course assignments worth.. *10 marks*! Perfect huh? But ofcourse, he hasn't submitted them. What does that make him? Yes... a Dumbass.

Emani's zis guy youknow. Like KP, he is also a Dumbass. In addition to being a Dumbass, he is also a Frigtard. Here is why: For years, he's been driving drunk. No, not just "Oh, 1 beer! I can drive" type drunk, but a "I might be [sarcasm]slightly[/sarcasm] high, but I've done this before" - that type of drunk.

Yes, I know - doing that only makes him a Dumbass and not a Frigtard. But here the punch: He drives a bike. And he drives it and speeds which might be dangerous even when *not* soaked (Clap clap clap: Emani's now promoted to Frigtard!) So, now he's totalled his bike and fractured his hand. He is also lucky to be alive. Dumbass Frigtard. (Oh, please send him "Get well soon.... DUMBASS!" messages ;) )

At this point, I would also like to mention Krishna "But the coach maaroed senti to play, rey!" Ramkumar. Playing Inter IIT with a broken knee, risking not being able to walk for life. Yes. Dumbass.

I realized yesterday that some of my friends are Dumbasses. With a Capital D. Now go up and read the disclaimer.

Sing Along with The Beatles

(Thanks to Kristopher.)

Glimpses of what transpired during the projects:

All those backups seemed a waste of pay
Now my database has gone away
Oh I believe in yesterday.....

There's not half the files there used to be
And there's a milestone hanging over me
The system crashed so suddenly
I pushed something wrong
What it was I could not say
Now all my data's gone and I long for

The need for back-ups seemed so far away
I knew my data was all here to stay
Now I believe in yesterday

Let It Be
When I find my code in tons of trouble
Friends and colleagues come to me
speaking words of wisdom: Write in C
As the deadline fast approaches
And bugs are all that I can see
Somewhere, someone whispers: Write in C

Write in C, Write in C
Write in C, oh, Write in C
LOGO's dead and buried
Write in C

I used to write a lot of FORTRAN
For science it worked flawlessly
Try using it for graphics!
Write in C

If you've just spent nearly 30 hours
Debugging some assembly
Soon you will be glad to Write in C

Write in C, Write in C
Write in C, yeah, Write in C
BASIC's not the answer
Write in C
Write in C, Write in C
Write in C, oh, Write in C
Pascal won't quite cut it
Write in C

Imagine there's no Windows
It's easy if you try
No fatal errors or new bugs
To kill your hard drives

Imagine Mr. Bill Gates
Leaving us in peace!
Imagine never ending hard disks
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to del or wipe off
And no floppy too

Imagine Mr. Bill Gates
Sharing all his money
You may say I'm a hacker
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And your games will fit in RAM

Imagine 1-Giga RAM
I wonder if you can
No need for left-shifts or setups
And no booting again and again

Imagine all the systems
Working all life-time!
You may say I'm a hacker
But I'm not the only one
Maybe someday I'll be a cracker
And then I'll make Windows run....

Two Years Old!

Happy Birthday to my blog! It's a whole two years old now! 'Twas created on November 16th, during Endsems a couple of years back.

The last year has seen a lot. Graduation. Goa. Treks. And ofcourse, artwork. Here'sa look back:

Lucy's Dream
: Vivid colours. Like an LSD-scape ;)

Music Without a Head: Yet another rant about music. Can't help it :P

Testimonial: Avi's gone off to Japan. Miss him :(

Out of the Blue: Started working!

Red SoulStone: Don't Tales of Mystery and Imagination excite you? Would you like to scale the peaks of the Red SoulStone?

Leh-gendary: One of the really cool trips this year. To Leh.

Perfectly Normal: Is anyone "perfectly normal"?

Always With Me, Always With You

Lazarus: One of my best creations, inspired by one of my favourite songs.

Tata. Do check out some stuff :)

Lucy's Dream

"I feel like drawing something."

"O great creator of being, grant us one more hour to perform our art and perfect our lives."

Mark of the Wild

Every culture has one. A Shaman. He heals; leads sacrifices; tells stories; sings songs. He even predicts the future and guides souls.

Where's your will to be weird?

A Mexican Wave

As I spend my night trying to sleep in my fevered delerium, a certain wave of profoundness sweeps over me. I think being unwell has this effect on people.

The flip side is, ofcourse, the inability to put down these "oh! so profound!" thoughts onto any recordable medium. But here, I, at the risk of falling asleep at a keyboard, shall try.

I think. I think that. Life is too short to spend it with people who annoy you.

I just want to spend it with people I really really love.

Did you ever realize that Led Zeppelin songs take forever to start? Not always, but very often. They just ease into the song. Like a smooth ride, a golden tequila shot. It's lovely, unhurried. Music. Ditto for Floyd. Ah, the classics :-)

I feel like drawing something.

Simple like a child, you are.

I had the most horrific auto ride to work. More than an hour thanks to some drivers with amazing "driving skills" and zero common sense. And Himmesh screaming nasally in the background.

I thought of it as an opportunity to catch up with pop hindi music. Alas. 'Twas more than I could take. I just told him to shut it after a while.

What was interesting is that I could see clear traces of "inspiration" in the "music". For one song started off and I thought to meself, "That's Queen, that is! Another One Bites The Dust!". Yeah. The baseline is *ditto*. Wonder if he thought of it himself :-/

Anyways, moral of the story: I gotta get my own car!...
