Mac Vs PC

I've been trying to figure out the right analogy to describe the way I feel about these 2 OSes. Here's what I got.


Windows is the 20 Rs hooker standing at the corner of the fish market on a sunday evening who gives a terrible blowjob and then asks you for a kiss.
Mac OS X is the super expensive 'escort' who'll do everything you want, beyond your wildest dreams, as soon as you figure out how to ask nicely. And buy her pretty things.

Ok, done talking for a few more months. Seeya.

please note

MTV is countering YouTube by putting ALL their videos online at the new site mtvmusic.com, all viewable for free, great quality, no in-video ads. Currently at 16,000 videos, apparently. Incredible.

As consumers, we win.

Go check out the site. I'm currently watching the Pearl Jam VH1 storytellers concert. Happy :)

I laughed, and then I frowned. 

Nggh. Guilt.

First Met album produced by Rick Rubin. It's going to be awesome.

PS- And this is going to make you super jealous, I'm going to be in North California at the time, and I believe Metallica always launches their new albums with a tour starting at... wait for it.. SAN FRANCISCO.

:) :) :) Gonna try to make it, that's for sure.

EDIT - Ganja writes in comments - "Metallica will be in London and Berlin the week the album gets released. But I'm pretty sure they will play a few gigs in the bay area not long after"

sigh :(

June 23, 2008

Let me write you a letter anyway.

I haven't written on a laptop so long, at first it feels like I can't remember the spelling of some words. And I keep hitting the keys wrong.
But slowly, the old movements come back, almost natural, like I was born with the knowledge of typing.

I mean, coding isn't even proper typing. It's more peering at the screen and writing the same things again and again. Bothersome.

How are you? I'd love to sit with you someday over coffee and generally, y'know, talk.
I'd rather you wrote back to me though. I like what you write.

It rained last evening at about 11-ish. Rained for about an hour. We somewhat got caught in it on the way to Firangi Pani, where everyone sang the same old songs, did the same old things, and generally drank silly.
The usual.
But like a genius, I stood back, didn't drink, put on the ipod, and started playing one song again and again. And this one song, playing loudly and not being able to hear anyone around you, suddenly separates you from the rest of the room. It's incredible, that feeling. It's almost like you're invisible. It then hits you how loud music and dim lighting affect people.

Firstly, nobody's noticing you walking around. They're all either talking in close quarters with someone, or staring at their glasses. And it's so dark, I probably seem blurry to them unless they're anyway looking in my direction. But nobody cares.
Also, the music in my ears meant it seemed like silence, like white noise. Because they obviously can't hear what I'm hearing, we're both inside silence.

I took the earphones off and the feeling of moulding back with the real world flooded me. The way the people were bobbing their head explained itself. Everyone seems to catch the beat and rock their body to it. Fascinating.

I lied, by the way.I did have something to drink. R_ offered me half a beer at the sports bar, but it's true I didn't pay for it.

Anyway. Nobody noticed when I disappeared for a full 10 minutes.

I went back out into the rain.

It was incredible.

I love last.fm

Mostly because it makes me feel so elitist.
Have you discovered last.fm yet> It's awesome. Go, now.
