The last week or so has been unusual. That is, unusually unusual… more so.
Nimish FINALLY gave me a Radiohead CD that is not corrupt! Had a blast listening to The Bends; a beautiful album that seems to hark back to the Beatles. When OK Computer and Kid A were playing though, I was in awe… It’s amazing how a band could’ve made not just one, but two albums that have such a myriad collage of musical styles, instruments, tempos and incredibly meaningful lyrics. Amnesiac is perhaps one of weirdest albums I’ve ever heard, but that’s where it’s beauty lies. I seriously want to explore more underground bands and their music, which inspired Radiohead’s experimentative streak.
Went to NSIT’s Moksha. The fest was good, real good. Pool, a free X-Box 360 stall and well-organized events. The rock show, Avalanche was good, but I couldn’t watch Them Clones or Advaita thanks to the Metro’s early closure timings. The Quiz league idea was nice, but I didn’t like the lack of prizes. “Don aur Gyaarah Mulko ki Police” came 2nd in the league… and got NOTHING!!! I won the Dichotomy JAM and got a Reebok shirt that fits dad. Best Interjector in the debate too. Kunal Malhotra of DCE (?) won the league and promptly announced his retirement from all quizzes where he’s not invited, whatever that means. Nimish and Kunal had a mini-fight in his Stephen’s-is-the-complete-pants post.
Dinesh Kapur of BVCOE came to NSIT despite a left foot that is giving my left foot a run for its worthlessness. Nitesh Bhasin was drunk during Spectrum, DCE’s last quiz of the season. DCE has five fests running simultaneously. Overload.
Right-o. I better sleep or mum and dad will lose it.
