Dhan TANA!!!!

deadly infectious, obviously inspired from the 70s-style music, but well updated. the lyrics are a little confusing but it’s really well made overall. At least some people have the good sense to seek inspiration in GOOD MUSIC!

a more ‘traditional’ bollywood song, made awesome by the singers singing it and the SEAMLESS transitions between the 2 women singers(my two favourite singers in the bollywood playback industry).

musings on my exams

writing my finals
filling up papers aplenty
do think of the trees, please

twenty-one pages of crap
pity the examiner
who has to read them

worst thing to happen
you know all the answers and
awake from slumber

the pain in your wrist
cannot really compare to
the pain in your brain

sadistic three hours
exam experiences
can leave you quite scarred

In This Velvet (and other mashups)

there’s this guy called Norwegian Recycling and he makes mashups. let me restate that, he makes AWESOME mashups.

this is a masterpiece, both the video and the audio. it’s A-HA+ Chantal Kreviazuk, with a bit of Lennon and Robbie Williams thrown in and then some Dido to close it out.

time well spent!

oh and another bonus for those nerds among the crowd who dig chemical brothers as well as star wars: Galvanize the Empire by yet another mashup fiend, PartyBen:

oh and an old school mashups, one that got me into mashups at that

man and god and law

It was 20 years(and a few months) ago today

Q: Do you feel good about things now generally?

JS: Oh man, you know. There’s certain things you gotta decide in life…. If you ain’t confronting them–if you ain’t thinkin’ about man and God and law, then you ain’t thinkin’ about nothin’. There ain’t no use thinkin’ about sex or drugs or rock ‘n’ roll. That’s all red heriings. If you ain’t thinkin’ about man and God and law then you ain’t thinkin’ about nothin’.

Q: What do you think about man and God and law? Do you believe in God?

JS: Well, I would say it was about time that you believe in something. And sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll ain’t it…. A lot of people used to think they were.
