The Great Depression seems to be waning now.
Helpful tips to fight depression:
a) Watch old classics. Watch them mute.
b) Read Tuesdays with Morrie.
c) Do *not* read The Catcher in the Rye.
d) Drink 8 glasses of water in a day.
e) Write (You think I am writing this for your benefit?)
f) Do *not* read someone’s blog for god’s sake!! Hahaha…got you there.
(There that Hahaha… appears again. The 3 dots at the end yet again.)
(Those 3 dots freak me out)
One show on television gave me the shivers. I was watching NDTV, a seemingly innocuous news channel.
Suddenly a program titled Crime Time or FIR or something akin to that blares on the screen.
And it starts showing instances of gruesome murders; fights, rape and all that which makes you throw your head back in disgust.
At the end of the program I couldn’t believe I stay in a country where all this happens. Probably that was my dose of truth.
The Australia-Pak cricket match was good to watch. McGrath sporting a new look. He’s always been my favourite bowler.
He can drop the ball at the same spot a million out of a million times.
My recommendation: Watch One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest. Jack Nicholson rocks in that movie.
Second recommendation: Don’t really bother following my recommendations. They are very mood-specific.
Now, the dilemma for you my dear reader is whether to follow my second recommendation or not. It clearly states not to follow any of my recommendations.
So, if you don’t follow any of my recommendations, it means that you followed my second recommendation. Which is not what you set out to do.
If you do follow all of my recommendations, which means you didn’t follow my second recommendation.
(I learnt that “Godel, Escher and Bach” deals in something similar to this.)
Drink 8 glasses of water in a day.
I read bits and pieces of Michael Moore’s “Dude, Where’s my Country?” Its average.
There surely is a difference between “No sugar added” and “No added sugar”.
Okay, I have decided that I want to produce and direct a small play. (Probably one that would last for an hour and a half).
The basic outline is clear to me. I want the play to have a minimalist setting. Only two characters.
The script has got to have a lot of relevance to today’s issues.
If you think you have a script like that, feel free to contact me. Just check with my secretary and book an appointment.
On a serious note, do let me know if you have something substantial to make a play of. It’s got to be an original write-up.
I shall continue writing as long as someone doesn’t drag me away from this chair. So here I am wri…………..
Okay, I was dragged but I managed to escape and come back to the blog. So here I am writing non-stop much to your delight.
(I smile assuringly). Yes, my dear reader, I shall continue writing as long as there is ink in this keyboard. Or whatever that is supposed to be in a keyboard.
Abrupt endings leave a bigger impact on any write-up.
