Where is my mind?

Somethings unusual have been happening to me lately and I have no explanation.

The last few movies that I have seen would definitely come under "Romance" category...and I enjoyed them thoroughly !!!!!!!!!!!

The movie I watched today was Wimbledon and I totally recommend it. On any other day when I am my normal self I would have rubbished it as one of the most predictable movies I have seen in years .There was absolutely nothing new in it. But I loved it, mainly because it used Tennis as the backdrop. I loved the acting of the male lead Paul Bettany and obviously the intoxicating brit accent. And I actually liked Kirsten Dunst in this movie !!( I used to hate her before this movie...maybe I still hate her).

Another movie I watched was an animation Corpse Bride . Well the name might suggest something else but it was a romantic movie indeed. And I loved that too. It was a Tim Burton movie - do I need to say anything else?

Its not the movies only where I am witnessing the change in my taste but music too! Now don't get the wrong ideas - I haven't started listening to britney and kylie ( that won't happen in my lifetime) but this time the shift is towards the "other" side. Last 7 days I have been listening only to Megadeth hours after hours. I used to like Megadeth type thrash metal earlier also but now I absolutely adore them. I have found a new GOD in Dave Mustaine - he simply just can't be a human being.If only Metallica wouldn't have lost Burton and Mustaine(although for different reasons) they wouldn't have been the pop band which they are now.Nowdays whenever I start listening to something else EVEN Pink Floyd I feel restless or irritated ( this surely is blasphemy!).

And as you can see my obsession with the pictures continues( I used to get turned off by the blogs that had lots of pics and took more time to load.....now mine is one of them!)

I hope this phase will pass. Soon.

Fashion

Half of the people who say books are better than movies have not seen enough movies and have not read enough books.(They say that because its fashionable)

Half of the people who say beer doesn't give them a high have never even drank 1 full bottle of strong beer all their life.(They say that because its fashionable)

Half of the people who say they love Heavy Metal music don't even know what genre is heavy metal.(They say that because its fashionable)

Half of the people who say they love their jobs are lying.(They say that because its fashionable)

Half of the people who say Michael Jordan or Tiger Woods are gods have never seen basketball or golf all their life.(They say that because its fashionable)

Half of the people who say Times of India is a piece of crap read TOI quite regularly.(They say that because its fashionable).

Half of the people who say that they hate Shahrukh Khan are standing in the queue on the first day of a Shahrukh Khan movie.(They say that because its fashionable)


I say movies are better than books so I am not fashionable.

I say beer gives me the best high so I am not fashionable.

I love heavy metal music and I know what heavy metal is so I am fashionable.

I didn't love my job so I am not fashionable.

I say Michael Jordan is God but I have seen Basketball so I am fashionable. I say Tiger Woods is God but I haven't seen golf all my life...so I am just pretending to be fashionable.

I don't say that TOI is crap so I am not fashionable.

I don't like Shahrukh Khan (I don't hate him) and I am not standing in the queue on the first day. I might stand later.


HOLY SHIT! looking at the ratio above I am lagging far behind!!!!!
