Saawariya Music – My Latest Fixation

3 10 2007

I have this very weird fixation about music ….esp Hindi Film Music. It’s like whenever I have any bit of free time, I have to listen to the same set of songs over n over again and sing along with it…sometimes its lip syncing (@work) or actual singing when in my car or at home.

My current favorite album has been the music of Saawariya. It is one of the finest music album created in recent years. It is one of those albums that doesn’t need any remixes of the songs to increase the album sales.

The title song ‘Saawariya’ gets you rolling with some catchy lines and foot tapping and neck shaking moves. The reprise version of the ‘Saaawariya’ is amazing at showcasing the singing talent of Shalil Hada. Check out the other song ‘Masha-Allah’, soft and melodious to describe a woman’s beauty. Kunal Ganjawala and Shaan are in form with the respective songs ‘Pari’ and ‘Jab Se Tera Naina’. Parthiv Gohill is the new singer in the album in the other wonderful track Yoon Shabnami’, it has a bit of qawalli in it too.

This album is a dream come true for the 2 newcomers – Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, who by the way looks so dam beautiful in the movie. She looks the like the girl next door who you’d want to take home to your parents. 🙂

My Recipe for being a Reality TV Star

11 04 2007

If you want to be famous in the Entertainment Industry, the easiest way to achieve that fame is to be a Reality TV show star. And by star, I do not necessarily mean winning the competition. You could be more famous than the winner of the competition, if you can manage to keep the press, the media and people talking about you.

So here is my recipe if you want to achieve the stardom and the fame just like Taylor Hicks, William Hung and now Sanjaya Malakar.

1. Be weirdly different. Do something is that is funny to others but which is completely you.

2. Once you are in the finals, keep innovating yourself every week on the show.

3. Start a rumor about yourself in the press.

4. Have your friends and enemies write about your craziness on the web. Have  them create ‘I hate…’ and ‘I love….’ communities on various social networking websites such as MySpace, Facebook, Orkut etc.

5. Dig into your photos from all the past years and have them posted on the blog.  And then say to the press, you had no idea they were taken.

6. Get into an argument with a judge on the show and then apologize for being rude, but never say Sorry and retract your statements.

7. Flirt with the female judge on the show.

8. Have spoofs created on you on SNL, MadTV, Mind of Mencia, Tonight show, Late show, etc.

9. Cash in on every opportunity you get to make money. Appear in TV commercials for products that even you might never use.

Last and the most important one……

10. Win the God damm Competition!!!!!!

Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground
This love is killin me
But you’re the only one
It’s not over….

I’ve taken all I can take
And I cannot wait
Wastin too much time
Bein strong, holdin on
Can’t let it bring us down
My life with you means everything
So I won’t give up that easily
Blow it away, blow it away
Can we make this something goooooood?
Cause it’s all misunderstoooooood

Well I’ll try to do it right this time around
Let’s start over
Try to do it right this time around
It’s not over……
Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground
This love is killin me

It’s not over…..

We can’t let this get away
Let it out, let it out  …..Don’t get caught up in yourself
Let it out

Let’s start over
We’ll try to do to it right this time around
It’s not over….
Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
This love is killin me
But you’re the only one

Let’s start over
It’s not over, yeah…Yead

This love is killin me
But you’re the only one

It’s not over…





Seinfeld

14 12 2006

My fav comedy series is undoubtedly Seinfeld…..although Friends is very good…but it has a different brand of comedy compared to Seinfeld.
Today I was watching the last few episodes of Seinfeld and I just couldn t stop laughing.
What’s Seinfeld all abt? Nothing…in the words of George Costanza ” It’s about nothing. Who says you gotta have a story? ” It’s a show about the activities that could happen to us on our daily lives.

Whenever I feel down, I’ d put Seinfeld on and it works…it cheers me up. I just love the characters on the show….but my fav characters are George, Kramer and Neuman. As George said Kramer leads of a life of fantasy…..no work, eating neighbors food, having sex without dating….I would mind leading a life like that….

I remember the episode last week where Jerry talks abt how importance is Speed Dial in a person’s life…he says its the relationship barometer….the number u occupy on the speed dial is the indicator of ur importance in that person’s life.
U be good to a person and u move up and u do something bad..u move down or totally out of the speed dial list….and something even better than being on the speed dial is if u r on the emergency numbers list.

Randomness – Part IV

30 11 2006

– I just have this strong feeling that says that my life is about to change. I don’t know if that change will be good or bad and I don’t know what will cause that change. But sometimes, you just know that something is about to happen and it happens without you even knowing it.

– Its Holiday season…Thanksgiving and now Christmas….good times for everyone to spend with their family and closed ones. I wish I was back home this christmas and was spending time with my family. It sucks to live alone and not seeing your family for such a long time. Mom, Dad, Bro…I miss you all!!

– I can’t believe we still have people rioting in various parts of the country and destroying public property in the name of caste and religion. I am deeply saddened by the events and I pray to God that he puts some sense in these people who cause these riots. They don’t understand that its their money which goes to the restoration process of these properties and then they complain about higher taxes. I blame the media for spreading such kind of news that would provoke violence and rioting.

– Indian crickets sucks!!! Sack all the players and stop playing cricket. Fine all those players who don’t score and don’t get wickets. Pay should only be based on performace. Make them earn their place in the team and make them earn their money.

– I am glad that Laxman and Ganguly are back in the Test team. However, I feel Anil Kumble should have been appointed the vice-captain and not Laxman. Sehwag needs to go home and think about his future. And Sachin should be told by the team management to adopt the more aggressive role. There should be only one strategy- Attack!!!

– Lastly, I feel i need to take a break….a big break….not from work but from all these crazy thoughts that run into my head. I need to relax and let things flow and not be concerned about anything and anyone.
