People this is a heartrending story of a nice guy called Marilyn Manson.As it happens with all the nice guys he also had to suffer at the hands of this cruel world.Accusations,blames,curses prohibition, he had to face it all.All the self righteous people labeled him anti-society anti-Christ devil.He became extremely agitated ...."oh you call me anti-christ....yes i am anti-christ and i am much more, i am anti-everything"..He voiced his anger through a song :

anti choice
anti girl
I am the anti flag unfurled
anti white and anti man
I got the anti future plan
anti fascist
anti mod
I am the anti music god
anti sober
anti whore
there will never be enough of anti more
I can't believe in the things

anti money
anti hate
anti things I fucked and ate
anti cop
anti fun

anti Satan
anti black
anti world is on my back
anti gay and anti dope

anti husband, anti wife
anti song and anti me
I don't deserve a chance to be

Depression Rocks and other stories ...................with beautiful illustrations

1)Depression Rocks:
well there is no reason to like depressing music and movies but i like them..guess it feels nice to know that there are people unhappier than you.thinking of other reasons depressing sad songs can be made more melodious because they can be slow...nobody would like a cheerful person singing slow songs! I adore Radiohead and they are depressing. I love Travis too and they are depressing( they might have some cheerful songs but i don't like them)...
After a gap of probably 2 years I am listening to Bec
k's Sea Change - highly popular and acclaimed theme album. I call it a theme album because it has only one theme running behind all songs- depression.It is a nice album with some brilliant songs like The Golden Age, Paper Tiger,Lost Cause and Sunday Sun

Theres one ro
ad to tomorrow
Theres one road to the
truth
Theres one road back to civilization

But theres no road back to you.


.....last lines from paper tiger...just why would anyone listen to this???



I saw "Lonesome Jim" yesterday. Casey Affleck( brother of Ben Affleck and very less i
rritating than him) plays a depressed loser,but you don't actually sympathize with him. His character is far from likeable especially when he says something like this to his brother :
" I don't understand how can you go on...you have a shit job on minimum wages..living wit
h mom and dad for child support..blahblah........I mean, I'm a fuck-up, but you're a goddam tragedy."
and his brother actually went on to bang his car to a tree.
I liked Liv Tyler in the movie.She was hot.

I loved the movie but again if somebody asks me what did you gain by watching this kind of depressing shit about a bunch of losers....i have no answer except for the fact there was some dark humour in the movie .

PS:I think the frequency of the word depression in the above story is more than that of fuck in the script of south park:bigger,longer and uncut.

2)World cup Rocks:

Atleast I won't complain when both Spain and Argentina are playing brilliant football. Spain won 3-1 today against Tunisia.Who would have th
ought of that scoreline when it was Tunisia was 1 up till 71st minute!!Fabregas was excellent, Torres was amazing and I felt really really happy for Raul.
Argentina seems to be unstoppable. Even Messi has started playing and he lived up to his hype in the 6-0 slaughter of Serbia.
Both Spain and Argentina are amazing technical sides with players gifted with exceptional skills.They make fast moves with short accurate
passes and thats why they are so thrilling to watch( I am not a big fan of long-ball football)


3)Insomnia :

Its almost 5 A.M. I want to sleep but with something stuck in my teeth it won't be possible for me to sleep.I am too lazy to go to the bathroom and brush my teeth ...what should I do?

The Great Indian News Revolution

Have you counted the number of news channels lately....star,ndtv,aaj tak,sahara,headlines today, zee,india tv,ibn,times,dd...etc etc and an equal number of business news and regional language news channels.Well its good that India has grown up to 24 hrs of news but the point is most of the channels don't have any news to show.All of them keep on harping upon the same useless piece of junk for hours.They have restricted themselves to only national politics,crime,bollywood and cricket. No international news(except for bomb blasts and earthquakes),no sports(other than cricket),no science and technology, no music,no history , no geography....nothing.
A channel will boast of its exclusive coverage from a small town where a girl slapped a guy after being eveteased or aishwarya rai losing 0.05 inches of weight around her waist for her next role( and then a half an hour long interview asking her what special diet she followed to lose that precious fat and then 15 minutes interview of her fitness trainer).
But as far as airtime goes nothing beats cricket. Every day ,whether there is any series going on or not we have our expert panel( constituting great experts like Saba Karim and Mandira Bedi clones) discussing important matters.

For example look at the following question asked by our knowledgeable gorgeous lady to Mr.Karim:

Lady: Sir,what do you think should Indian team focus on , in this crucial series against England?

Expert(afer lot of deliberation) : I think India should focus on beating England
( Oh thank you sir for your lovely insight, we foolish Indians were missing the whole point ...we thought cricket is played just to have some fun with your ball)

Another one :

Lady: Sir, what do you think Sehwag needs to do to get back in the form?

Expert: I think he needs to get back his confidence
(Holy Shit! sir we'll put u on direct line with Sehwag , your words of wisdom might help him regain his confidence)

And the match coverage itself..rain has temporarily stopped the One-day match...and our news reader :
" We'll take you directly to Guwahati stadium to our correspondent preeti....
Preeti what is the situation like ..are spectators getting frustrated over the delay?"
( No ma'am people are really happy that match is being delayed ..who wants to see a fucking 50 over match..20-20 is the in thing after all!!)

All this nonsense is not confined to cricket.other obsession that all news channels share is bollywood actors.
Oh yes they find Mallika Sherawat eligible enough to be on discussion panels on issues like Indian nuclear policy or Sardar Sarowar Dam or IIM fees hike.I still remember when I felt like crying.Salman Khan had just been released (on bail) after spending 3 days in the Jodhpur jail and our reporter( visibly ecstatic over interviewing the great bollywood hunk) asks with a look of concern over his face: Sir, now that you have spent 3 whole days in prison, what do you think about the condition of Indian jails and the concept of imprisonment itself. Should punishment just be seen as a tool of transformation and reformation?

and Salman Khan(with a triumphant look on his face...after all Gandhiji also spent days in prison) has whole lot of things to say over this issue.

CAN SOMEBODY EXPLAIN ME...WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING HERE...?

And the great "Sting Operations" ..I am afraid that what started as genuinely useful methods to expose corruption might soon become stage presentations.

Nowdays they are obsessed with Cocaine ,Heroin and Rahul Mahajan and so they have decided not to give even 5 minutes of airtime to reservation controversy which was a hot topic just a few days back.Where has the sense of responsibility and morality gone now??

Plz plz expand your coverage. Be less sensational and more innovative or be the old half an hour doordarshan news(that was almost as informative and we all eagerly waited for it).
