MAKING WAVES... WITH EVERY WORD... WITH EVERY BREATH...

I constantly ask myself, what's in a blog?

Blogs these days, have become so diverse and so specialized that you could give all of them a job description... The critic, the public, the celebrity, the entrepreneur, the bureaucrat, the educator, the advocate and a gazillion more...

But then again most blogs boil down to being of a more personal sort... They are very slice of life like... With a little salt and pepper to help it along the way, of course... I'm not the most open person in the world, so my piece of pie is void of life... I meant void of my life... It's filled with perspective, doubts and rants about the world that blankets me... It's my way of glaring at the face of everything outside my personal life looking in... Be it politics, lunatics, fanatics, heretics whatever...

But aside from the face off with the world, there is a lot more to blogging... It's like a journey of self discovery... It really sets your mind in motion, drifting free from the physical plane we are lost to... And lost to contemplation...

Blogging is cyberspace meditation...

To what effect I don't know, maybe its just a labrynth of constant conflicts and solution... Maybe it's a dummy's guide to self enlightenment...

Whatever it maybe... Right now, all I know is I definitely get a kick out of it... And so I'll keep at it...

Until maybe, I become so fabulously wealthy that I can hire a team of ghost-writers to maintain my blog...

I'll start off on a tangent...

I'll start with tragic movies.... I hate them... I'm not emotionally bankrupt, mind you... It's just that it lingers in the mind and sucks the happiness out of you... I'd rather leave that festering feeling for real life situtations... Well I know that movies pick up the extraordinary or the unusual and stick it in your face... I enjoy it... It's a good release, we can fantasise, we can have fun... But why do they force us to dwell in misery...

The front pages of a newspapers rarely rarely bear good news... It would be a change for nice to see good news on the front page, and bad news on the second page... Why do I have to start my day with a long face... The crowded city and the hectic traffic manages to do so splendidly well on its own...

The humanitarian side would be the portrayal of wise man equivalent of Dumbledore or Gandalf saying "These things happen my child and you should not turn a blind eye to it. Media is just a window to the reality around you"... A little coloured in perpective though...

And when you just think that your life is splendid the way it is... They raise the expectations tenfold... Hell, I'm being conservative make it thousandfold... You realise your clothes are no longer the in thing and that those that you gave away to charity yesterday was what you should be wearing now....

Sometime's movies make you do stupid things... Getting a ghajini style haircut? Why in blazes should I resemble a retard who has a memory that could be outrivalled by the most primitive pentium... Not even a pentium, make that a stone-agium.... I'm being vindictive (My barber said that there is a chance that if I do get that style, there's a chance hair may not grow back there)... I admit it does make a statement.... But why do we let it govern our lives....

Whys page3 new's obsessed with shattering the lives and happiness of celebrities... We are sadists... We enjoy their fall from grace... It makes us out to be better people in comparison to the people over there... Even though some of us deep inside envy them... How petty of us...

By now you might wonder where this blog is headed, well... Nowhere... Ever heard the term merchant of death.... Well media is a merchant of temptation... Be it misery, gloom, happiness, recognition media has the power to sell it to you... But at the end of the day just remember that you are media's customers, not their loyal subjects....

Exercise some control will ya... Media doesn't define life... Life defines media !!!

There are times when a mobile phone can be damn annoying? How about every time it rings... I'm exaggerating... But seriously, in theaters, between conversations, in meetings, in the middle of a lecture... Come on people should be at least sparingly considerate...

Why are people determined to drive the next guy up the wall to the point that they just loose it?

Why do these idiots refuse to put it on vibration mode... Maybe they believe that if they just try hard enough, they might get nominated for the nuisance of the year award...

Forget that why don't these geniuses just turn down the volume a notch... Guess they believe that if at first you don't succeed in annoying the crap out of the next guy, try try again...

Not to mention being interrupted in between a conversation by a call by the other party... How dare he, when we make the time to see him in person!

Not to mention the constant itch that people get to occupy themselves with the phone while in the middle of the conversation...

On the phone when driving! Let me not start on that count...

The masses are making headway on the path to being self centred, obnoxious, impatient and down right inconsiderate without cellphone helping the along... Shame on you, shame on me, shame on us!

Mind your Cell Phone Etiquette's people!!!

I know I've been a darn right A** for not being regular... So sue me.... It's my blog... It's not like I write to please... It's just that its pleasing to write...

Scratch that I've hit a block... And I'm being lazy... I'm just taking it out on you... My apologies...

Although I'm working around a couple of things to put under my creative jurisdiction... I'll be up and around shortly... This time for real...

The thing is I've been getting idea's in flashes... The downside is they leave just as quickly as they come... I'm working on a solution...

Till then... God bless and good fortune be upon you....
