Crazy title, well im writing this for the sake of it,cant think of a better title.Im just thinking why i havent blogged for 2 months now.That too when i got internet connection a month back.Yes cable net provided by youtelecom,speeds are Okay,unlimited 192 kbps so just downloading movies.For a week i can excuse myself for being having a hectic schedule. i had “graduated” sometime back and am an ‘ingineer‘.Met few of my friends after a long time, dont know if i will be able to meet them next time.The next week after that went for travel as i travelled from Bangalore-Kalpakkam-Chennai-Kolkatta-Bangalore in 4 days. And Cleartrip had a great offer, 10 movie tickets free @ INOX!!(I never knew the offer existed when i booked, i just booked the cheapest ticket in cleartrip).

Due to worst mistake done by dear pal sanjeev (he read reviews of all movies for 2 hours and booked the worst rated,he says its the problem with the site) during online booking,first movie was worst one “Thotta” on Mar 2.Then back to work and had the “hectic” 10 days release period.Since i had to exhaust remaining 8 tickets, went to 10000 BC and “Black and White” with colleagues in bangalore.Yes the second one being a hindi movie,but now able to understand normal conversions,so movie wasnt so hard to understand.Last week back to chennai for cousin’s marriage and went to movie called Vantage point.It was interesting in first half,then it was more like Gaptain’s movie with all sort of unimaginable stunts.Met few friends on sunday and went to a good movie atlast in the 10 tickets.Vellithirai was a good flick.

Travelling to and fro to chennai by bus on weekends is pathetic.I wonder why trains are always full.There will be 10 buses lined up and you never know which one you booked for.For 11 clock bus, i came to know that my bus is cancelled and i had to board another bus(1045) only at 1050 and the bus left at 1055 though i was in bus stand at 930 itself and whenever asked about my bus,got a casual reply,it will come and even the conductor doesnt know properly what is the timing.When asked my friend that is it the case only with SETC,he said its with every bus service(even the private fellows).

Meantime i started my hands at cooking also,starting from milk,noodles to ready to eat are now common things.Once a week ‘trying’ to cook rice also 🙂 But washing vessels is a major pain.

Meanwhile me using windoz, as im unable to(not finding time to) configure my cable internet in ubuntu.Initial googling gave very little results.So if any of you know to connect cable modem in ubuntu,please ping.Expecting some change in Ubuntu 8.04 due next month.Its nice to internet at home.Am almost back to college days, catching up online with friends,(now started blogging also :P),orkutting,watching lollu sabha by downloading,browsing freely.

I have started liking this game tribalwars and playing it for 2 weeks like mad. I dont know when my next post will be, Untill then keep visiting 😉

Computers & Movies

While i was stumbling i came across these links which covered about the hackers in hollywood, servers in movies, coding in hollywood . Well quite a few of them were really funny like

Code is only in green text on a black background

code is inherently cross platform : In independence day, whatshisface-math-guy writes a virus that works on both his apple laptop AND an alien mothership?

Man those guys are million times better.

Cut the shot.Back to Kollywood TamilNadu, India. Lets see the relationship between computers and heros here.

Though directors havent ventured much with computers, the preliminary (read  only) purpose to use computer is to search a criminal from records.Let me give you few examples.

1)Captain Vijaykanth‘s comedy is endless.Let it even be one of the best movies by him,he never fails to entertain.In the movie Ramana he gets a floppy disk from his student.Puts in his PC, Windows media player opens(a video plays) and he tries to enter something(trying to query for criminal) and gets the info and decides to nab him.Wow awesome.Only captain can run a 3 minute video from a floppy disk,Only he can type something and get results in a windows media player.

2) Anniyan tried to use the web much like 4 Students did but Anniyan was worse and 4 Students was better.One must watch the anniyan website scene.No words to describe it. lol

3)Citizen was another great comedy.Ajith would be a serial killer killing people with a fake identities that no one would ever know.When CBI suspects him and raids his place,they find an astonishing evidence in his PC. It will have a presentation of all his identities and the list of persons he is going to kill/already killed.Why in a world would a secret serial killer make such a presentation and keep in his system.Is he a CEO and ppts are his day in & day out?

God knows when these crazy filmi people catch up with computers!!

Super Heros

Indian film industry produces lots of these super heros.This is just a sample
1.See how the train moves after his instruction!!(47 secs)

2.Can anyone ride a horse like him!!(16 secs)

Anbae Sivam….

One movie which has taught me a lot in my life.Infact i would rather say changed my attitude towards life.Made me more philosophical.It covers a entire range of human values from love,communism,helping tendency,service,viewing a particular situation with right mindset,Above all tells how u must love everyone to reach the way to god.It deals with 2 people who view the world almost contrast in every issue,but the factor that brings them together is LOVE.The song "yaar yaar sivam" tells who is close to god rather who is god.Catch the lyrics.You can read a neat review rather story here The scenes depicted will be fixed in ones heart forever. Esp few like the climax dialogue kamal speaks in letter,when Maddy cries for death of the boy.Kamal & Maddy shared a excellant relationship on screen.Though thier thought process differ,ultimate concept of loving people is fed to public.Well one can write for ages on that movie.For those in orkut,join the community on Anbae Sivam & get more insights.

I must point out what i read in that community a serious flaw in the movie.It was maddy donating blood, technically its not possible as he consumed alcohol last night & it could have been very well due to that the boy could have lost his life..

But critics apart, One movie which deserves OSCAR.. Anbae Sivam ROCK. If u havent seen the movie,go watch it.
