What Drug I am?

Your Personality Is Like Acid

A bit wacky, you're very difficult to predict.
One moment you're in your own little happy universe...
And the next, you're on a bad trip to your own personal hell!

Lysergic Acid Diethylemide...gives you the trips...want an example?
Listen to the song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (LSD!) of The Beatles...an example of tripping...may be or may not be true...still its very surreal...
Fear though...it may trigger schizophrenia and cause genetic defects to your progeny!

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
Ah... Ah...

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle,
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

More tests...

Bear with me for a month more...till then more and more tests!

No comments...

A Brief Hiatus...

Exams are breathing down my neck and i have'nt done much serious preparation. The last unis (hopefully!) and I plan to make some mark (literally and figuratively) at least this time.
There are a lot of issues burning and on which I have an urge to write. Then again I don't feel like writing and writing is a responsiblity. You have to think and scrutinise the feedback. It is like any other job.
I always believe in giving the best in what ever I do. To be more cheesy I am borrowing some words from Spiderman : "With great powers come grest responsibilty"
You have to be responsible for what you do and learn from your feedback. Right now I don't have enough time and mind to do it.
So I thought it would be best to take a leave from blogging till my exams are over. It would last till the end of next month.
Unless something dramatic happens which would move me to write I don't think I would be writing...
Praveen has a written a good post on the reservation issue...do read that if you have'nt already. Raise your voice against this malice. No matter how feeble it is every voice counts...
No matter the struggle succeeds or not the youth of India has shown that they have guts and a spine to stand up against injustice.
I salute those in struggle and dedicate the song "We are the champions" by Queen.
Take a note on the lyrics...its fitting for the situation...
Adios till we meet again...

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world -

Rest in Peace(Pieces?)

Response of a "socially unaware person"

Praveen had written a nice article in regard with the Kerala election results.
It seems there has been a pretty good response to the"gestures" I made to the marxists as a comment to the article.
Some dude talked his way into putting some sense into my head (I presume so).
The red gospel!

So I thought I need to make some clarifications. Why I am an antimarxist? Why the Marxists suck? yada...yada...
And I need to clarify the fact whether I am a socially unaware person...atleast to reiterate my belief in myself...

Youth and Marxists

The recent reports say the young children are very much attracted to V S Achuthanandan.
The reason?
Very simple...children likes clowns and jokers.
Everyday you can see somebody miming VS on TV and VS himself taking his pathetic talk. Is it fit for a CEO of a state? Think for yourself.
This is the person going to meet the corporates and the centre for the various plans and proposals. There is a lot to ettiquette and it goes a long way in negotiations. Ask any good manager.

The strikes in our city.
The stone throwing and public nuisance making SFI and DYFI people. The youth wing of the CPM. The anger of the youth?
Yeah some anger!
99% of these miscreants are not part of SFI. Heck they have'nt even passed 7th standard. (In my mother's words "Anchaam classum Gusthiyum" *5th standard and Wrestling*)
I know this fact for sure. Not from any third party. The first hand information seen over many years. The slum area nearby our home houses these people and they are paid by the CPM to do the things. And the rest 1% are some fools and the student leaders.
What happens to the miscreants when the Police comes to University College?
They jump the wall and enters the Holy Vatican of Marxists, the AKG Center. No policeman dares to even casually gaze at that structure.
Poor students who wants to learn are crucified in the end.

Now on to the Engineering Colleges.
We all know fueds happen in colleges. We do things on a rush of blood to our heads.
So where does the Marxists fit in?

In our college there is gang of good for nothings. Won't study anything. Cuts the classes and makes a disturbance to all involved. Absolute good for nothings. I used to compare them to Oxes (yeah oxes not bulls...because bulls have balls)
One of the fools had an issue with a good friend of mine and all hell broke lose. They started threatening him by saying about their contacts and all. Once he reacted and they were hurt. And they had to make some contacts to show off. So what did they do?
Went to the Marxists and bought them booze. For our college day we could see the DYFI point man Binu I P coming to scout. And to go further they created local commitees of CPM in new areas and became the LC's.
Recently for their party they called Om Prakash ( A thug who was arrested as the uncrowned Prince of the Trivandrum Underworld. I presume DYFI leaders were there too)

Is this party for the taking of the antisocials and the good for nothings?

Attitude of leaders

Now this is gem of information. As part of my IRMA interview preparations I met several people. One of them was a top official, I can't give away his name or credentials. Lets say he is an important person in the Kerala Developmental sector.
We were talking about various stuff and finally came to Kerala model development and the Party influences. This man knows Thomas Isaac personally and he was saying that he is a genius and a master of multitasking.
And then I asked him about strikes in the city and all. Then he quoted Isaac. "We don't care about the development of the new leaders. We want to have a strong impact on the public. There is nothing more lucrative than the educational sector. These student leaders are just our minions to keep our public profile up."
This a truth and I don't neither the man or I have a reason to lie.

Now into a recent statement of a CPM leader. "The popularity of a leader is not the criterion for Cheif Ministerial Job. Its a party decision."
So what does he imply? The CPM doesn't cater to democratic setup in India?
Well I do agree, in all parties the central command decides the leader. But the popular leader is usually made the CM.
The people are the masters. Not the party. But in CPM, the sun rises in the west.

Now another issue. A prominent young leader in the party (he lost the elections this time. yipee!) was accused of taking money from Manichan, the illicit liquor baron. The party cleansed of his sins by saying that he took it for the party.
Is party bigger than the people?
Will the party take money from any no good criminal?
Don't say they didn't know about Manichan's activities.

If party is bigger than people then why are they still in the election fray?
Why don't they try to implement the social justice as said by Marx?
What is the difference between Charu Majumdar (the reverred Naxalite) and them if they believe party knows everything?
Majumdar was a man. He had spine and he had belief in his ideology. Not like these political eunuchs. A true Marxist. And the last one...

Social Issues

Marxist party is said to be based on ideals of Marx...of social justice...of equality.
But what does the CPM preach?
What is their stand on reservation?
They boast of having an intelligentia and what do they have to offer as an alternative to the very flawed reservation system in the country?
Nothing! They are afraid of the backlash of the classes which have been enjoying the benefits at the behest of the needy and the deserving.
They have been mum on the current issue of the reservation to the ivy league institutes.

And why do they oppose the Universal Civil Code?
The one thing which makes me vote for the BJP.
One civil law for all the people in the country. Which is sure to bring in a sense of equality in the nation.
The Marxists oppose it saying some nonsense.

The virtues

The marxists have been lobbying against the private colleges and all.
The truth?
Two students of our colleges are the kids of the top CPM brass. If they were virtuous they would never sent their kids to the "satan". And there are many more in other colleges.
PInaryi's daughter is a student in a prominent private college in Tamil Nadu. On being asked he said it was a top institute.
Wouldn't he give a chance to private colleges here to be the top?
Some socialism!

About V S

The hero of the Punnapra-Vayalar struggle!
The heroes of that struggle are dead or were maimed. The ones hailed today including V S were not in the vicinity or were hiding underwater or under some bushes. The tailor has come a long way indeed! I don't mean derogatory but does he have the knowledge to be a leader? A leader should be wise not crooked. VS is a shrewd person capable of cutting down his adversaries in the party and becoming the one. But does he have an administrative skill?
I don't think so.
If he was a good manager then he would never cull the party. He would have outshone them and garnered respect in the party. But he hasn't.
Sure he was an active opposition leader. But you can bitch but can he give unto the bitch?
And don't think he is clean...
Information from an inside source (read government department) about his daughter.
Now holding a plum job in a government instituition she was a barely passer in school and college who got a very suspicious top rank in her post garduation. Even if she was a rank holder she could have never got the job the right way if the merit was strictly followed.
There has been some allegations against his son as well and his alleged involvement (non involvement?) in the smart city deal.
What about the VS stand in the issue. His reaction before the alleged swindling and the real estate mafia was the most enraging one. He said Smart city would benefit the middle class in Kerala and not lower class.
So the middle class children should go outside? Sweat their way out in alien land? Do they have no right to work in their homeland?
And only a shortsighted politician would say this. The development of a region would lead to an overall growth. Look at Kazhakootam. So many services and selfemployment due to the coming of technopark.
So he has shown that he has zero vision. Does he deserve the job?
Of course he is the better person. The one horned devil among the two horned ones.

The marxists want Kerala to remain as a state were most of the people remain uncultured and without a vision. Only then they would be getting votes. They know that their vote base is with the lower and the middle class. They want to protect it at all costs. At the cost of development of the state, the people.
When will the people start thinking?
And when will they see the hollow promises of these damned idealists?

In that comment it was said that after five years Kerala will change and VS will usher a new era which will bring the Marxists back to power.
I am ready to eat my words if it happens. I don't think I would need to. Damn sure...

I know this has been a long post and I looked at only one side of things. But I am tired after typing and I guess I made my point clear. I needed to...

Metallic Tour De Force

Exams have been postponed and the motivation levels for studies have hit the bottom...Hope I start again tomorrow. Was playing NOLF2( No one Lives for Ever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.S way). Got stuck and shut it up. Will do a post on the game as it really deserves one. Its been a while since I enjoyed myself with a game. Not even Civilization IV was this enjoyable. (which incidentally is one of the greates games ever!).
Downloaded some magazines yesterday (thanks Hary!)
Found myself doing a few Hit Parader Magazines (metal music magazine!)
And found a big feature Hard Rock's most famous bands from 60's to 2006.
Okey...now I can see some of you going for that 'X' button on top! Bye Bye!
For those who are still with us lets continue!

25 bands from 35 years...simply mindblowing...I played a song of each band in the chronologically order making sure I selected songs which I don't usually hear but really good.


The time when Rock became Rock! (This Rock became Rock in 1984 by the way! :P)
Cream: Best of the Best

If you check my Last.fm music charts you can see the song "Sunshine of your Love" topping the charts. Thats a song by the Cream.
The band is indeed the Cream. The first ever super group!
The best guitarist (Eric Clapton), the best bassist/vocalist (Jack Bruce) and the best drummer (Ginger Baker). To be frank I don't listen to any other song by them. So decided to play "I Feel Free". Was blown away...

Jimi Hendrix: The Guitar God

No question...the best guitarist ever (Eric Clapton is my favourite though!) The playing is so amazing...His band was called Jimi Hendrix: Experience. An Experience Indeed! Played the song Voodoo Child.

Led Zeppelin: Hard Rock Royalty

Arguably the best band ever. Featuring great vocals (Robert Plant), brilliant bass and keyboard (Jon Paul Jones), insane drumming (Jason Bonham- the best ever!) and Jimmy Page (my second all time favourite guitarist!). I heard the song Good Times, Bad times as a part of the package.

If I write about all the songs...it would be really really long post...
So I am just giving the era, the bands and the song I listened to...( I know "LIke you care!")


Golden Era probably!

Black Sabbath: Master Blaster The original loud band! Listened to the song "Black Sabbath"

Kiss Never been into Kiss. The first shock rockers. Face paint and all. Listened to Detroit Rock city (Actually I forgot about this and listening now! :P)

Deep Purple: Highway Star One of my favourites. Too many changes in lineup though. Richie Blackmore is one of my favourite guitarists. Song I played : "Burn"

Aerosmith: Boston Bad Boys One of my first loves. I love "I dont wanna miss a thing" and Liv Tyler! (she is the leadman Steven Tylers daughter!) Played:" Dream On" (I really love it!)

Judas Priest: Inside the Beast The leather rebels. The Harley loving band. They ride it on stage! Loud and Fast. Pure Metal! Played :"Metal Gods"

Van Halen: Faster than light Once again not into Van Halen. Thought the guitar is simply brilliant. Played: "Panama"


The era of glam and hair metal. Decadence was the topic of the day!

MOTLEY CRUE: WILD IN THE STREETS Probably people know about the band mates as boyfriend of Pamela Anderson (Tommy Lee) and other gupshup. Just started on them. Listened to a few songs. Liked the good old hair metal. Played: "Too Fast for Love"

AC/DC: GODS OF THUNDER The Gods Indeed. One of my favourites of all times. Total kickass! Guaranteed! Played : "Rock n Roll ain't noise pollution"

METALLICA: PEDAL TO THE METAL The band that made thrash metal mainstream. Kicked the ass of hair metal and brought in sanity. Though my favourite band (one of!) I usually listen to the later albums from Jason Newstead era (the ex bassist). Decided to hear something from Ciff Burton era (dead bassist and the best ever!). Played "Fade to Black"

OZZY OSBOURNE: THE METAL MASTER May be master but have'nt listened to him sans Sabbath apart from some videos on TV.

SLAYER: HEAVIER THAN HELL Totally heavy and nowhere commercial. Pure mayhem! Listened to "Hell Awaits"

IRON MAIDEN: FINE-TUNED MACHINE Another all time favourite. I love watching their live videos on TV. Kick ass in the classiest manner! Listened to "Phantom of the Opera"

DEF LEPPARD: LETTING IT ROCK Listened to Leppard when I started on rock music. Still likes a lot. Listened to : "Love Bites" (an amazing song!)


The decline of rock...:-(

NINE INCH NAILS: REZNOR’S PASSIONDon't like this sort much (industrial). Trent Reznor's one man band. (The others change for each album) But I liked the song I played. "The hand that feeds"

GUNS N’ ROSES: RUN AWAY TRAIN Oh Boy! My all time favourite. Enuff said! Played "Mr.Brownstone" (its about brown sugar for the record!)

NIRVANA: CHANGING ROCK’S COURSE Changed pretentious rocking and brought angst. Grunge at its best. Listened to "Heart Shaped Box"

MARILYN MANSON: EYE TO EYE I listen to their Personal Jesus a lot. Apart from which I don't hear much. Not for the righteous christians. Played: "Disposable Teens" (the song is about the high school shooting in US)

ALICE IN CHAINS: GLOOM MERCHANTS Gloom Merchants indeed. Depressingly good songs! Listened to "Again"

SOUNDGARDEN: TAKING NO PRISONERS Have'nt heard a single song!

KORN: NEW METAL PIONEERS Not a fan of Nu Metal. Though I like Linkin Park. I liked Korn's new song Twisted Transistor (hilarious video!) Listened to: "Here to stay"

The 21st century

A revival period?

SLIPKNOT: MUTANT METAL ARMY Hugely Popular and very heavy. But I don't find it to be interesting. What I found interesting is that there are 9 in the band and the makeups are scary! Listened to: "Don't Get Close"

SYSTEM OF A DOWN: GET WITH THE SYSTEM My favourite new gen band (after Coldplay!) Political songs with a vision. Though a bit leftist. Kicks ass hard and hates Bush! Listened to :" Soldier Side"

AUDIOSLAVE: FACE OF THE FUTURE A supergroup with expatriates (actually the instrumentalists) of Rage Against the Machine and the singer of Soundgarden. Really good. I loved the first album but didn't listen much to second one. I love the song "Show me how to live" (hears it in Rosebowl everyday!) but listened "Cochise" for now...

Hmm...We start with a supergroup and end with another one! How Fitting!

24 songs...it was a really good musical journey...Refreshed my jaded mind and I am raring to go now!

Hopefully you people can see a story the next time you come here. :-)


Random Musings...

First I will post the song...I have got a fascination for it now...so please bear with me...I am posting up front because its easier to turn off!
Got the movie "The Doors" from Santhosh today along with Apu trilogy (Satyajit Ray...I have been searching for this one!) and Vanaprastham...
The Doors is a biopic of the eponyomous and legendary band in late 60's...especially the story deals with the lead man Jim Morrison...
SEX...DRUGS...and ROCK N ROLL...nirvana for me!
So heres my favourite song..."Light my Fire"
(its a bit long with a keyboard stuff in the middle...sorry...couldn't find a shorter version...)

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Oh, the time to hesitate is through
There's no time to wallow in the mire
If I was to say to you
That our love becomes a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Now for a couple of polls...

You Have A Type A- Personality

You are one of the most balanced people around
Motivated and focused, you are good at getting what you want
You rule at success, but success doesn't rule you.

When it's playtime, you really know how to kick back
Whether it's hanging out with friends or doing something you love!
You live life to the fullest - encorporating the best of both worlds

Too good to be true! :-P

Now something I love...what kind of food I am!

You Are Italian Food

Comforting yet overwhelming.
People love you, but sometimes you're just too much.

Hmmm, my knowledge of Italian food starts and ends with Pizza (that too in scant supplies)....I think I have heard softee ice cream is Italian...

A long post full of nothings...couldn't help it!
Found this pretty late I must say...
So here's the song I dedicated to all of you...playable on any Windows machine(I think so!)...

*Notice: Song removed for posting new song :P*

Washed out...

What do I do when I am washed out creatively...
Check for some polls and post it!
These days no good polls are coming in Blogthings...a couple were good but still doesnt feel like putting it up on the blog.
SO what do I do?
Take the books and study seems to be a logical and most preferrable form of spending time...
But usually my actions defy logic!
Reading seems to be a plausible solution to boredom (didnt I start this post by saying I am creatively washed out? Oh anyways I am bored also :P)
But pending fines in the library looms large :O Has to go there tomoro.
Still no solution at hand!
Civilization 4 seems to be hanging and crashing on my system more often than I get the messages from Airtel (hmm...thinking about it even they have reduced the messages. Recession there too?)
Colin McRae rally is good...but does not interest me much...too difficult to be frank (A confession at last!)
Hmmm...my ears are groaning already! :D
Thinking of diverting to softer music and Indian classical!
May be just blabbering of a bored guy! He may be listening to System of A Down the next time you visit him!
Still no solution!
Nah! Too bad for my Mother's health and my bedroom door's! :D
Still thinking...
Lemme check for some polls to post...

Here it is!
What mood I am in now!

You Are In a Decent Mood

You aren't turning cartwheels, but you're having a pretty good day.

Some ups, some downs, but overall you're coming out ahead.

And who knows? Tomorrow could be even better!

Oh boy! And I thought it would be depressing!

In college I had a nick called "Dog"...Not the The "D.O.G" but the colloquial doggie Dog. (Patti in plain malayalam :P) Donno how I got it and I shifted it on to Odies head (hence his name!) before I searched for reasons! Here is a poll I found !

You Are a German Shepherd Puppy

Intelligent, quick witted, and a bit aggressive.
You've got the jaw power to take a bite out of anyone you choose.

I am not sure when I will be posting again...may be soon may be far...Love all u people and God bless you! (sounded like Bush did I?)

Heres a song for all of u
The Rolling Stones - (I can't get no) Satisfaction
"I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm drivin' in my car
And a man comes on the radio
He's telling me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can't get no, oh no no no "
