Heading to Delhi for the weekend. See you guys on Monday.

this one time, in band camp...

"A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens--second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day's events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths."

YOU ARE A VICTIM OF THE RULES YOU LIVE BY

This fucking city. You love it to bits and all it does is take a shit right on your face.
I wanted to come back to rain, to nights on the terrace getting soaked, to walking on the raods with a happy chaos that everyone loves being in.
Looks like I missed the best part of the rains. And worse, everybody's a scowly child.
I left Bangalore to get rid of people, of traffic, and having to constantly question whether I was living in a life of decadence and assbuggery.
Bangalore's now come to me. The people, the traffic, the assbuggery, and the decadence just followed suit.
The fucking traffic, I hate it and how it makes me feel. I now scream at people on the roads. My happy-go-lucky personality (heh) is in shambles. In the trash. In storage.
["Get off the road, you waste of sperm!"]
I am not being a happy guy.

Thank God, for now, for guitars and comics and music and friends and women and books and the internet and cigarettes and wine and rumAndCokes and videoGames and moviesAboutRealLife. They're forming a thin thread of sanity that I'm scared will unravel all too fast.

3 months ago, I put this up as my desktop wallpaper. Now, for the life of me, I can't remember who she is, where she's from, why I even bothered. But she seems nice. Like the rain, it's like meeting a friend after a really long time.
Ok, you didn't need to know that, but now you do.
