Fact of the Month

The Mayans believed eating earwax would bring fertility.

One of the grossest facts I've come across... yuck!

Things that I learnt...

Hell! You should've seen posts with "Things that I learnt blah blah" title in a zillion blogs. This one is slightly different.

Lemme get started.

  • Murphy's law is the most fundamental law in the universe. (To hell with what physicists say)
  • Brutal self delusional optimism is not good. You only end up creating a fool out of yourself.
  • Don't try to fall in love. Trying and pretending to fall in love when you don't know what love is will only make it worse.
  • Don't be an outspoken atheist. Keep your enlightenment up to yourselves. People are fools and will continue to be so.
  • People will not love you for what you are. Give them what they want and everyone will be happy.
  • Approachable + Open + Sweet = Vulnerable asshole.
  • Aggressive + Plangent + Rich = Greek God. (looks don't matter)
  • Think before you say "Yes".
  • People will be nice to you. Don't fall for it. There is a greedy wolf in everyman and a selfish bitch in every woman.
  • 99% perspiration + 1% inspiration = 100% Bullshit. If you believe that hard work will lead to success then explain how unworthy jerks succeed.
  • Don't feel pity for others. They don't deserve it.

The last one was told by a consultant in one of the programs which I'd attended. Here it goes:

Don't Take Shit from People.

P.S. The above words were just a small subset of the boundless wisdom of the TCM.

Steamless Post

An nyoung Readers,

My life has been full of shit. Nothing bad has happened but then its not what it used to be before. I've lost the interest to write. Blogging is spontaneous... it just happens. Its the interest that I don't have. Now I know why people begin cribbing once they start working. I feel my gray matter is decaying. I am slow. The processing speed has become worse than a Celeron machine. I cant crack the "connect quizzes" like I used to. Weekends go wasted. Sleep and sleep more. My successive posts are becoming progressively bad. Worse, they are becoming mediocre.

Happiness is not something that persists for long. Universe just fucks the happiness out of my life. I don't know where I am heading. I feel like a formula-1 driver driving blindfolded.

The song "Space-Dye Vest" by Dream Theater captures this moment just right. Do listen to it. Trust me, its hard for any human being to dislike it. Don't blame me if this song starts haunting you.

Last few lines go like this:

"There's no one to take my blame
if they wanted to
There's nothing to keep me sane
and it's all the same to you
There's nowhere to set my aim
so I'm everywhere
Never come near me again
do you really think I need you
I'll never be open again, I could never be open again.
I'll never be open again, I could never be open again.
And I'll smile and I'll learn to pretend
And I'll never be open again
And I'll have no more dreams to defend
And I'll never be open again"


My guitarist friend Syd deserves a special mention here for telling me about this song. A million Thanks buddy. I love the way the whole band kicks in at the end. Bless Kevin Moore. Portnoy's drums are flawless as usual. Cant even think of playing this song... I fuck things up badly when I play 16th notes.

Hope the much needed "come back" will happen soon. Bye till then.
