SOK sucks big time..

Sillenru Oru Kaadhal is complete crap all throughout the movie.The story seemed to be so stupid and we have had much better represetation of the same kind of story in the old classic 'Iru Kodugal'!

Jothika or Jo as shes fondly called looks like a blotted piece of Idly,thats been lying out in the open for a long time turning slightly brown in colour.Her wimpering like a badly injured dog in most of the scenes where she was berating her 'adhigaprasangi' daughter was so irritating.Her so called emotional scenes and sacrificing speech was bullshit.Thank God shes decided to put an end to the so-called acting career of hers.

Surya was ok throughout the movie,but never seemed to make an impact at any stage of the movie.He suited the college kid role,but there wasn't any memorable event or noteworthy gimmick that was part of usual college flicks.

Bhoomika,as she was portrayed in the movie seemed like a Gulete girl completing feeling like a fish out of water.Her calm nature,while in college and a completely changed,much loquacious part in the latter part of the movie was slightly artificial.

The college friend comedian in the movie,resembled the typical friends in college,who used to crack nasty jokes and try to have their share of fun.Repeated reference to the loo was disgusting.

Vadivelu seriously needs to get a life.He needs a silencer to be attached right next to his throat which picks up anything more than a decently accepted decible range.His gimmicks seem repetitive and it seemed that he could have been totally avoided in the movie.

As it has always been the norm, A.R.Rehman's wonderful music has been completely wasted with songs being thrown in here and there in the movie.The background score wasn't that good though,particularly during the fight scenes.

Sillendru oru kaadhal should have been renamed Sillendru oru Masaal Dosa - the thought of it makes me decide to fast rather than eat it!

Are Freescale's days numbered?

EETimes.com - Analysis: Are Freescale's days numbered?

Freescale acquired!!

This picture from EE times shows how good the company has performed in the last few years!

But,unfortunately,it is going to be butchered for pure financial interests.The innovations and scientific interests are surely going to take a hit due to this acquisition.

15 Years Of Internet...

EETimes has a wonderful article titled The online supernova: 15 years of the World Wide Web highlighting the fact that its only been 15 years since Internet was invented,although it seems its been there since a long time.

TechWeb | Image Gallery: 15 Years Of Web Browsers was a nostalgic treat to watch!

I was just thinking whats the internet done to me till now,that has impacted the most in my life..
Had there been no internet...
1)I wouldn't have made it to the U.S
2)I wouldn't have got through my masters..
3)My last 5 or 6 years would have been completely boring and I probably would have end up working in a boring job in some remote place in india.
4)I might have spent atleast 5000$ for communicating with family and friends in India.Can't even imagine sending info through airmails and aiting for 15 days to get to hear back from loved ones.
5)I wouldn't have been able to make a lot of friends that I have made through the years through intereactions in the WWW.
6)Damn..Being a desi in the U.S,I would have had no chance of any meaningful interaction with girls!!!
7)Lastly,it would have been extremely difficult to find my life partner!

Heres my way of tribute to the father of internet - Tim Berners-Lee...
I have submitted an anagram to be included in the Anagramgenius archive

Phrase : "Tim Berners-Lee's world wide web"
Anagram :"Bewilderment E-Browsers wield"

While this video with the wonderful voice of Enya brings in a feel of gloom,surprisingly I don't feel too bad for America as a nation.They took 3000 lives lost as a justification to kill thousands and thousands of innocent civilians all over the world.Were those 3000 lives much more important than the lives in the middle east or for that matter the lives lost in Kashmir due to America's favorite ally Pakistan killing them mercilessly with the aid of POK militants?

The interviews aired throughout the whole of last week of Dick Cheney/G.W.Bush speaking with the popular TV networks showed one thing very clearly.Both of them stubled beyond words over the link of Iraq war with the war on terror and the linking of Osama Bin laden to Saddam Hussain.

Even a 3rd standard student in the U.S would have figured out the president and vice-president had taken the whole nation for a ride!One wanted his previous employer Halliburton to get projects and profits by starting a baseless war and the other wanted to soar his fathers and his Middle east oil related friends' interests to benefit from the abundant Oil available in Iraq by overthrowing Saddam Hussain.

They were heaping all the blame towards the U.S intelligence - CIA as if the whole establishment was run by a bunch of lunatics who had no idea of what was going on then with the Islam nations and the terrorist activities.Firstly these guys never listened to any of the CIA theories or alerts and then coveniently blame them when its time to take over the real blame on themselves.Bunch of hypocrites - both the president and the vice-president.I was appalled by their audacity to come forward before the public and still keep linking Saddam Hussain,Iraq war to 911.

While the democrats seemed to be averse to the idea of invading Iraq,their promises for the next presidential election seems to indicate that they too are 'for war'!I guess america wants to be involved in some kind of war,whichever party dons the mantle at the top.I saw a documentary where they showed how far the intelligence community and the research organisations in the U.S had gone and had started engaging the latest technologies in the recent wars in Afghanistan/Iarq.A lot of details about the automated weapons and robot controlled bombs was shown,which only backed the fact that U.S wanted a reason to be in war to keep innovating in the field of battlefield technology!

I feel Hillary might get to become the next President.God knows what is in store for America under the clintons again.One thing to be accepted is the charisma that Bill Clinton used to exude and continues to exhibit during his occasional intevriews on TV.Hillary becoming the president might indirectly make him the president-kind for the next few years,I guess.

God save America..While all this going on,there are the real threats to U.S easily sneaking into the U.S with little scrutiny!But atleast they are not crossing some fence or landing on the U.S shores on boats from Rameshwaram.That day is not too far I guess.

Simon & Garfunkel - Scarborough Fair

Very soothing song.Wonderfully sung by Simon n Garfunkel.
This song was also featured in the movie - Graduate.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there, she was once a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt (On the side of a hill in the deep forest green).
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme (Tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground).
Without no seams nor needlework (Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain).
Then she'll be a true love of mine (Sleeps unaware of the clarion call).

Tell her to find me an acre of land (On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves).
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme (Washes the ground with so many tears).
Between salt water and the sea strand (A soldier cleans and polishes a gun).
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to reap it in a sickle of leather (War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions).
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme (Generals order their soldiers to kill).
And gather it all in a bunch of heather (And to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten).
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there, she was once a true love of mine.

Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound Of Silence (1964)

The wonderful lyrics!!!
Hello darkness, my old friend,
Ive come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of
A neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one deared
Disturb the sound of silence.

Fools said i,you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you.
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming.
And the signs said, the words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
And whisperd in the sounds of silence.
