It’s been long since I wrote about anything non-specific. I guess it’s a common symptom amongst bloggers from my generation (age jokes will draw ire). For me, it just stopped being so important to say anything, what with every major insight seeming pretty ciichéd and/or obvious by the time I got down to writing it. […]

Eastwind Festival

The icing on the cake that was my time at Freed.in was that I got to spend one evening at the Eastwind Festival (thanks to Piyush Verma for the ride that made this possible!) It was brilliant. I got to listen to the Raghu Dixit Project (and get on their blog, to boot) and Junkyard […]

So I finally did make it to Freed.in/2008. I had a great time, though it took me a while to understand what exactly the objective and focus were. The talks were on a variety of topics (as diverse as communities, education, mobility, indie music and open street maps). The single theme, though, was Knowledge, and […]

Random stuff

Watched Forrest Gump again (beginning to end for the first time, actually). Some random reading later, came upon this rather interesting article about Robin Wright Penn. Trent Reznor has released the download/payment stats for Saul Williams’ album (which is available for free or USD 5 — your choice) at NiN.com. He finds the results (about […]

Pleasantly surprised to have not. :-) For those of you that’ve been living under a very large rock, Radiohead has released their […]

I think I used to have a voice

Ah, I’m back. In a revolutionary fit of life changing, I have decided to try to be regular about blogging again. And as I type this out, I have completely forgotten everything that I wanted to blog about. Flup. Books. I got my hands on a few and, shockingly, read them. Going through a manic […]

Kama Ruchi Lokat

Went out to Loka Ruchi today, way down Mysore Road. Amazing North Karnataka food. Brilliant time. Read Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk. Quite good (albeit somewhat morbid). Theme somewhat similar to Fight Club. This is the book his publishers found too disturbing to publish (Palahniuk, it seems, decided to write something even more disturbing to […]

… and the day they stopped

Finished reading Haroun and the Sea of Stories (Rushdie) yesterday. ‘Tis very good reading, across ages. Should be made mandatory reading for children aged 6-10. I liked the Shadow Warrior Kathakali association particularly. Before that was the curious incident of the dog in the night-time (Mark Haddon — keeps reminding me of Haddon Mirk). I’m […]
