Shifted to wordpress !!!

Oh, I didn’t mention that in my previous post, did I ??? Gulp !!!!

Ok, guys, Im really sorry for that prank; I really am.. I am neither going anywhere nor am I quitting from blogs because of some silly reason. Its just that I decided to move to wordpress and from on, you all are going to see me there :

I request you all to replace your readers, feeds and all those stuffs with this new blog url.

Well, you all deserve an explanation from me and it is waiting for you people in the new place. See ya !!!

(You can throw all those eggs, rotten tomatoes, stones and chappals over there at wordpress. And with chappals, make sure you throw both of them so that I can make a pair! )

Current Favs : June 10 - July 10

Though Bollywood (I seriously don’t have an issue using this word) witnessed a number of music releases in the last one month, it was just Jashnn and Kaminey that stood out. Kambakkt Ishq had just one decent number (the RDB version of the title song), but again it was just the interludes that made it exciting; the song was soo bland ! and please, don’t even make me write about the movie ! If you love yourself, please don’t go watch it! It doesnt even deserve to be watched in a pirated CD ! Barring Shruti Haasans version of 'Luck Aazma' from Luck, the rest of the soundtrack is a disaster; then again, even that song is passable. The other major disappointing albums were Love Aaj Kal and Shortkut; the former because of the expectation from the Imtiaz Ali-Pritam combination and the latter for the undisputable track record of Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Again, to each their own; I am aware of people who are in love with the songs of Love Aaj Kal. Jashnn has some real good songs, 'Tere Bin', 'Aaye Re' and the two pakistani band songs, 'Dard-E-Tanhai' and 'Main Chala' are my favourites; try listening to them if you havnt yet. And whaaat an album Kaminey is !!!! 'Daan Ta Naan' is soon going to be an anthem !!! 'Fatak', 'Pehli Baar Mohabbat', 'Raat Ki Dhai Baje' and the title track; all are equally good !

I had to place 'Oh Divya' from Maasilamani (Tamil) in this list though the album released somewhere in May. This song is surprisingly good, considering the fact that it came out from D.Imman and I simply loved the way Shaan rendered it.

Now, if you are a real music lover, who would go beyond the boundaries of language, do listen to the songs of Aayirathil Oruvan (Tamil) and Kalavaramaaye Madhilo (Telugu). The songs of Ayirathil Oruvan simply grow on you, especially the one mentioned here and the semi classical ones (Thaai Thindra Mannu). and the title song of Kalavaramaaye Madhilo is easily one of the best melodies I have ever listened to. Take a bow Chitra; now I know how an angel sounds like !!!

1. All the songs of Kaminey (Hindi) – Music : Vishal Bharadwaj

2. Indha Paadai – Aayirathil Oruvan (Tamil) – Music : G.V. Prakash Kumar

3. Kalavaramaaye Madhilo – Kalavaramaaye Madhilo (Telugu) – Music : Sharreth Vasudevan (Asianets Idea Star Singer judge and Keralas most under rated music director)

4. Sehari – Oy (Telugu) – Music : Yuvan Shankar Raja

5. Tere Bin – Jashnn (Hindi) – Music : Toshi Sharib

6. Kannil Theriyum – Angaadi Theru (Tamil) – Music : G.V. Prakash Kumar

7. Chor Bazaari – Love Aaj Kal (Hindi) – Music : Pritam

8. Tu Ne Jo Na Kahaa – New York (Hindi) – Music : Pritam

9. O Divya – Maasilamani (Tamil) – Music : D. Imman

10. Kuzhaloothum Poonthennale – Brahmaram (Malayalam) – Music : Mohan Sithara

Phew !!!!!

Thanks you guys !!!!

It was just one of those lousy days and I somehow wanted to bring out the frustration in me. Im really sorry to have made you guys go through all that torture in the name of a post, but I am glad that there a lot of them out there whom I havnt even met to bank on. That post was so not me; atleast I don’t reveal my real problems to even the closest of my friends that easily. There were quite a few reasons for all those outburts, but then again, I prefer keeping it to myself rather than ranting about it here and making this space even more depressing. And I had already received comments from various corners that I wear my heart on my sleeve, so zipping my mouth. LOL. Yesterday, somehow I couldn’t control any longer and some of the issues just came out; more like a volcanic eruption and guess what, I felt a lot relieved the moment I hit the publish button for that post. Now thanks to you guys, I am feeling much much better now. And frankly speaking, some of those statements in that post don’t make sense to me also now. LOL.

I am using this forum to reply to all your comments. I might not do justice in replying to your comments in depth and that’s only because I really don’t want to go through all those ‘atyachaars’ of mine once again.

Badz : Awwwwww, thank you !!!!

Solilo : LOL, it is ! I hope I won’t do this atyachaar again !

Pixie : Thanks a lot !!!

OG : Nothing happened aliyaaa. Reasons…hmmm….there are so many, but don’t worry, Im all ok now.

Bhargavi : Exactly, one of those stupid days !

Rakesh 2 : Yeah, you are right ! I guess I just started taking Mr. Life seriously. LOL.

Sakhi : No one likes to admit it, but it’s a fact !

Soneeta : The world is surely going to end. Look at the length of your comment, and that too two !!! LOL. And yes, its time you started your own blog ! C’mon, it will be fun.

Aaarti : Yup, one of ‘those’ days .

Swaram : LOL, moral support, huh? That’s a good one. I should try that !!

EISI : Im glad that I made you think. LOL, jus kidding !

Nautankey : You are accusing me of stealing your thoughts, how dare you !!LOL ! Is it the similar phase that we are going through that’s making us think on the same lines???? Dude, I can sleep to forget things easily, why should I give up myself to addictions?? Hehehe.

Ashwathy : You were expecting a 'Why-me' post from ME ??? But then again, Why me???? LOL.
“that happens when u let ur heart rule ur head” – some of them say I don’t have a brain (remember Smitas previous post?) and some of them claim that I am heartless. Now, which category do I fall under !!! LOL
“we do that all the time by coming to ur blog :D today is no different!!!! Hehehe” – finally someones telling the truth. LOL.

Dhiren : Yeah, whats happening to everyone ! I guess too much of spare time that’s making everyone think a lot ! :D

Rakesh : With you around, I wouldn’t be surprised if people had such status messages. You know you are a big pain when it comes to chatting, right? LOL.

I guess you didn’t understand the logic behind the curry leaves. LOL. Use and throw, buddy !

Varunavi : Bloody Bedsheets, aren’t they ???

Varun : LOL @ the recharge card. That is smart ! and yeah, you are right, we should ping the ones who have DND. LOL. Disgusting roomies you have ! LOL. And what made me write this? Im curious too !! LOL

Veena chechi : Yeah, just those days when we feel all dejected ! Eeeeeeeeeeeeee ( see? Im smiling now !!! )

Verbivorehere : Too many reasons, but now I am ok.

Anonymous : If I always made sense, this post wouldn’t have come up. LOL. Anyway, I don’t like taking U-turns because I always preferred listening to my head instead of mind.

Shraddha : Yeah, all of us and at most of the times.

Nikhil : Welcome back after a long time. I guess, now that the work on your book is over, you have a lot of spare time in visiting other blogs. LOL. And dude seriously, something happened to me yesterday! :D

Smitha : Yeah, it doesn’t have that trademark, you are right !

Vee: You are right Oxy boyy. We should start thinking about ourselves first ! People might call us self centred, but these days, that’s the only way to find happiness ! unfortunately, its not happening that way. LOL.

Badz : LOL, you devil !!!! Shhhhhhh….will ya ???? :D :D

Deeps : Exactly, just go with flow. We shouldn’t be thinking too much, isn’t it ?

Reema : Yup, everything is getting better now !

Indyeah : I loved the optimism that you brought in to each of the pessimistic statement that I made. But how is life being fair to a person who is handicapped/crippled since birth ? Most of them end up at the streets ! When would such a person get a turn around in life ?
And Eeeeeeeeeeeeee (Im smiling, see?)

Amit : Hmmmm…In a way yes, but quite not what I meant.

Crafty : I second Ashwathy here. You deserve the best comment award for this post !!! and you have made your points clear in just a few words. LOL.
Vimmuuu sheepishly admits that it was him and no imposter ! but thanks for breaking into my house that way! I need to mend my door and get new furnitures now! Sigh !!
