From Radiohead.com :

dented ego he go she go

we're in this together
sorry am i boring?

we are the pixels on the screen, we feel nothing. we feel hypnotised by your eyes.


From a Radiohead song :

It barks at no one else but me
Like it's seen a ghost
I guess it's seen the sparks a-flowing
No one else would know
Hey man slow, down, slow down
Idiot, slow down, slow down


(Oh you figured out the meaning..plz mail me or call me)


Finally something sensible , JOKE of the month !!!!!!
:

A little girl walks into a pet shop and asks in the sweetest little lisp, "Excuthe me, mithter, do you keep wittle wabbits?"
And the shopkeeper gets down on his knees, so that he's on her level, and asks, "Do you want a wittle white wabby or a soft and fuwwyblack wabby or maybe one like that cute wittle brown wabby over there?"
She in turn puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says in a quiet, sweet voice, "I don't fink my pyfon weally gives a phuck!"

Drool


Now that you have started breathing again , this is not one of those futuristic gizmos that they show on Discovery. These stunning Harman Kardon ( JBL) SoundSticks 2 sit on a cheap wooden cot in my cheap,dirty room almost accusing me ,why can't I buy a new house for them.
Although I would have paid extra cash just for the looks , but they have the sound that is as much SEXY.
And yeah , I did my research.
This is how you(or atleast I) buy speakers :
1)Read approximately 1.5 million reviews on CNet , Znet and PC Mag

2)Listen to Another Brick in the Wall /With or Without You on full bass and zero bass on Altec Lansing, Bose and JBL

3)Shortlist three speakers based on the research done in the 1st two steps.

  • Harman Kardon SoundSticks
  • Logitech Z 2300
  • Altec Lansing MX 5021
(Mind you they are in no particular priority).Somebody might ask how can I shortlist Logitech when I haven't listened to them in step 2. Well the answer to that is you don't get Logitech 2.1 very easily in India(atleast in Bangalore). Getting a demonstration is a far fetched idea; its simple, if you order they'll get you one.So Logitech was shortlisted purely based on secondary research.

4) Go to a Computer peripherals shop at 5.30 P.M. which will close at 7 P.M. ( God knows why!).

5)Beg the manager for the demonstration of the JBL and Altec Lansing( which is supposedly against the showroom policy). ( I had heard those speakers in a different shop earlier). When the manager refuses , beg some more. When he still refuses try to stop those ungainly doubts from creeping into your head. When you can't, get out of the showroom and catch an autorickshaw to the nearest cybercafe which is 3 kms far. Again compare the reviews which you already have. After you feel somewhat satisfied catch an autorickshaw back to the shop.

6)Its 6.35 now.Tell the manager that you would like to buy JBL soundsticks. Ask him for the final price quote( which is 10.4 K including taxes).Beg him for a discount.When he refuses beg him some more.When he still refuses , take out your card and then listen the manager reminding you that paying by debit card will cost 2% more. Abuse him ( inside your head obviously).Get out of the shop and run to the nearest ATM. Come back with the cash. Its 6.55 now.

7)Pay him. The manager obliges you by giving you the shittiest headphones in the world - ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!

8)Install those beauties in your dirty room and worry about the acoustics.

9)If anybody says some other speakers are better , or there is a place in Bbay or Bangalore where you can get the same speakers for 8.5 k , ask them to go and f*** themselves.
