Words are a sawn off shotgun!

Have I posted this video before? Thom does good things with a biker helmet and a camera. I’ve been singing this song VERY loudly, VERY often and want you to as well.

Just as you take my hand
Just as you write my number down
Just as the drinks arrive
Just as they play your favourite song
As your bad day disappears
No longer wound up like a spring
Before you’ve had too much
Come back in focus again

The walls are bending shape
You got a cheshire cat grin
All blurring into one
This place is on a mission

Before the night owl
Before the animal noises
Closed circuit cameras
Before you comatose

Before you run away from me
Before you’re lost between the notes
The beat goes round and round
The beat goes round and round

I never really got there
I just pretended that I had
Words are blunt instruments
Words are sawn off shotguns

Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out

Before you run away from me
Before your lost between the notes
Just as you take the mic
Just as you dance, dance, dance

A Jigsaw falling into place
So there is nothing to explain
You eye each other as you pass
She looks back and you look back
Not just once
and not just twice
Wish away your nightmare
Wish away the nightmare
You got the light you can feel it on your back
[A light,] you can feel it on your back
Your jigsaw falling into place

Dedicated to all you… All Golgafrinchamians (or -ites?)

Wrote 2,000 words of a short story with the working title “Dead for 23, Alive for 1”.

Will write more.

Thank you to all the people who say I write well. You lie well.

In Lucknow, was in IIT-Kanpur (came 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively in the quizzes and won the Stimulus Creative Writing). Am bored. Want to travel or kill. Preferably both.

Will write when I get the tubes at home, with my preferred keyboard and not this concrete monster at the Reliance Webworld in Patrakaar-puram market, Gomti Nagar, Lucknow.

The Interpreter Of Dreamy Maladies

There are times in your life when you can do little else but stare into the mirror and after the intial gag reflex, wonder… “WTF?!”

I am bored, busy, exasperated and extrapolated all at the same time. And to top it all, i had an unusual subconscious encounter last night. (this is starting to sound like South Park’s pilot episode…)

I dreamed that i was having a heated discussion with 4 people. They were, in clockwise order of their seating relative to me; Steven Levitt, Ramachandra Guha, Stephen Hawking and Venom. The topic of discussion was me. And what I should do with my life. I woke up with the realization that I am a “3-year-degree guy” and should not be ashamed of it.

Anyway, enough aboot me. How’ve you been?

P.S: I write a lengthy review of a rotting, piece of fecal matter that tries to parade itself as a movie, i.e. Pirates of The Carribean:3 and yet, I haven’t written a word aboot any of the movies I have had the opportunity to finally see. So, I guess the best way I can get myself ou of this 7-month-old bout of the block is to write reviews for The Dark Knight, Citizen Kane, Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, Casablanca, Munich, Se7en etc etc.
