A working class hero must be something to be?

.

.

.

As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty hard years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me


Guaranteed – Eddie Vedder

On bended knee is no way to be free
Lifting up an empty cup, I ask silently
That all my destinations will accept the one that’s me
So I can breathe

Circles they grow and they swallow people whole
Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they’ll never know
Got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul
And so it goes

Don’t come closer or I’ll have to go
Owning me like gravity are places that pull
If ever there was someone to keep me at home
It would be you

Everyone I come across in cages they bought
They think of me and my wandering but I’m never what they thought
Got my indignation but I’m pure in all my thoughts
I’m alive

Wind in my hair I feel part of everywhere
Underneath my being is a road that disappeared
Late at night I hear the trees they’re singing with the dead
Overhead

Leave it to me as I find a way to be
Consider me a satellite forever orbiting
I know all the rules but the rules did not know me
Guaranteed


Starry Starry Night…

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer’s day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land. 

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they’ll listen now. 

Starry, starry night.
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Swirling clouds in violet haze,
Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand. 

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they’ll listen now. 

For they could not love you,
But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, Vincent,
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you. 

Starry, starry night.
Portraits hung in empty halls,
Frameless head on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget.
Like the strangers that you’ve met,
The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
The silver thorn of bloody rose,
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow. 

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they’re not listening still.
Perhaps they never will… 

~ Don McLean

Burn to learn…

To learn, we burn? Or, we learn as we burn?

Don’t know, just trying to figure out.

Burn

To learn we burn..

Burn 2

Or we learn as we burn...?

.

.

Sometimes all you need is words. Love in silence becomes reprimand.

.

.

With all this poison inside
It’s much to late to decide
You’ve got your mind made up
You’ve been living a lie in your white room

For all the hours that you’ve cried
There’s a year of love that they’ve denied
So you slip through the door
And fall to the floor of your black room
You’re a black room boy

.

.

But all I know is, I always will. And, my music will tell my story. Soon.

Love,

RokZRooM


… or whatever.

Today, I’ve got something to share. Though its not something new, it of course is something most of you never knew.

The more humanity strays from its’ origin, the more we deny our bond with nature, the farther from perfection we become. We are the only creatures on the planet that use symbols in reference to something else. This documentary shows that we use symbols for absolutely everything the mind can conceive of. There is at least one word or icon or gesture to insinuate everything our five senses can detect and then some. But along with this beautiful gift comes a flaw.

Most people are unwilling to seek and create their own interpretations of these symbols. Instead, they blindly submit to preconceived definitions and connotations given by sources unknown. Because of this, many things have been predetermined in our understanding of life without our knowledge. Words can be perverted and used to manipulate rather than to inform. Symbols can be used to segregate rather than unite. And those given the responsibility and authority to disseminate information to the public possess the ability to do with it as they choose.

So.. yeah. Merry Christmas… or whatever.

Orgasmic Child Birth – A Secret Unveiled? [Explicit Content]

I recently stumbled upon a really interesting article. Astonishing as it might sound, it really seems appealing and believable. Everyone is aware of the excruciating pain involved with a child-birth. But, as this research claims, this pain can not only be avoided but also turned into ecstatic orgasmic experience.

Read the original article, from year 2008, here.

Or watch the trailer of the movie that reveals all the information related to the idea here [Contains Explicit Content].

 

Now, go tell your friends, this might help them turn pain into pleasure. 🙂

On a related note, this reminds me of these lines from the song Girl by The Beatles. 😉

Was she told when she was young that pain
Would lead to pleasure?
Did she understand it when they said

Okay, lets watch that too.

 

Now this also reminds me of the research-article I’m writing, intending to finish soon this month (hopefully), which is about the future civilization after successful transition into an RBE. Many will be excited to hear that the Marriage (along with other Social Systems) that are predominant in today’s world will be rendered obsolete. Interesting times ahead. 😉

See you later.

Love,

RokZRooM

UNGRIP – Discovering Ultimate Freedom!

The troubles that beset man are not pains to be avoided, not sufferings put to rest, nor problems to be solved; rather the riddles we unravel, parables of our reflection, reflections of our paralysis, unfinished stories to conclude, philosophies one must discover, instruments with which to create and an art to appreciate all once believed…. all that is left is left only to UNGRIP.

Watch the amazing documentary UNGRIP and step ahead towards discovering the true meaning of freedom, peace and love, and hopefully, live with it.

Join the facebook page of the documentary.

An attempt to discover the Ultimate Freedom.

What sets you free…

We learn as we live. And from everything I’ve been going through, I can safely conclude that its true. And, as I quoted earlier, I discover a new me soon as I think I knew me.

What holds back the truth and change shall only cause pain.

Life is a lot more than what can be explained in words. But as I add up my experiences to my scorecard, I now know what it is.

A great part of it involves “…to say what must be said, to do what must be done and to love who must be loved.”

And, the Truth shall, always, set you free.

Live. Love.

Kissing the Death

Though I’ve seen many dear and near ones pass me by in my life, I’ve never written about death before. For, I never knew what it would feel like – until recently.

I feel lucky to have passed through this experience. Its hard to describe it in the generic context of duality of good or bad, because there is no such thing. It just is.

So, it was my friend’s  birthday, and we were hoping to get high. Little did I know what I was going to face then. Though it wasn’t first time, it could have been last time.

I inhaled a few black clouds, enjoying the state of consciousness, puzzled with dizziness. My friend couldn’t take in much, and was constantly telling how badly rolled it was. :p

So I would take in more and more, and explain him how he was doing it wrong.

Then, in an instance, I felt a sudden whip of utter dizziness. Wham! And I said, “I can feel it so strong, why can’t you..” And went in another breathe. Wham!!! I was getting dizzy and high, and I mentioned I can’t take it anymore – I’m as high as heavens.

He gets a call, and goes away for a while.

Wham!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who.. what.. where.. why… how…

I could sense how my senses were loosing their control. Starting with sight. I could see things, but not really make sense with them. Another few seconds, and it started feeling numb first in my brain, then legs, arms, chest, heart and everything else… and I could sense my whole body vibrating from within – feeling like a thunderbolt of millions of watts is passing through me. It was all numb, yet filled with extreme energy. Pure consciousness. Oneness.

I crossed all my fingers of my hands, and folded and pressed my hands, and noticed myself gripping them so hard I could not separate easily. I felt discomfort in my stomach, lungs and heart. I felt my heartbeats dropping down.

I noticed I was loosing it, and I was sure I won’t make it through. With great difficulty, I shouted  at my friend to bring me some water.. and I didn’t know why I did this. He was gone for almost a few centuries, which he later told me were only a few minutes. I was sweating bullets. I was not breathing unless I made conscious efforts at doing so. Sitting in the front of the car, I took my shirt off.  Still sweating – and probably dehydrating.

I felt these were the last moments. The past memories flew by me. I remembered the ones I love. I uttered their names. I sensed that so many things will go unsaid, undone, untold, unheard, non-existed. A deep sigh, with a glimpse of tears in eyes, with realization that nothing actually matters – its  all momentary. And I was one of those fabrics that created the moments that were.  I sensed I could either end up in a hospital, in a police station, or in a graveyard. Chances were high that it could be the last one.

I am a non-believer. But then, when it was one of those last moments when death could have kissed me, I surprisingly uttered OM / AUM sound.. loudly… several times. I did it like it was the last but only thing I had to do. It felt like I’m bringing in, calling for, triggering some energies – within and beyond – that will spark it all up again. After all, as I’ve learned it later, sound does not exist. It is just an impression in mind created by the energy waves or oscillations.

So there I was.. waiting for the last sip of water to go in – and may be then bid a farewell to this reality and to possibly enter another..!??!?

But then came my friend, bringing in the water bottle, giving it to me unopened while talking on phone!!!!@!!@@$#@

I tried to tell him to open it for me. But I had little control over my voice, and it went a little too loud. He then recognized the situation was probably already out of control, and turned the call off.

He opened the bottle for me. I drank a few sips. A sudden discomfort inside the body… like it was telling itself there is something wrong. Someone isn’t able to take in a fucking breathe!!!!! I continued drinking, a few more sips, and then suddenly… the stomach responded. :))

“PUKE!!!!! Puke the fuck out of this asshole. Anything that is in his belly. Just puke the fuck out, so that his lungs can get some space to take the fucking breathe in!!!!” – screamed the amazing molecular superstructure of my body to all of its microcosms.

“Okay.. a little more.. PUKE. The roads of this city are already in bad condition, nothing can go worse. PUKE.” the microcosm responded. 😀

I slowly recovered back to my senses. And felt the beauty of life again. Calmness. Wisdom. Oneness.

I sworn to myself to respect this fucking life (which I do anyways, but still, reaffirming  😉 ). I sworn to say what must be said, to do what must be done, to love who must be loved. For, I realized that the only thing that could probably hold you back from the ultimate bliss and freedom is the times when you disobeyed the call of your heart.

Love. Live.

Coming Soon….


Footloose…

When I was young, around 8 years old, I used to ask my father as we laid down on terrace and observed the sky, “How big is that Star? How far it is? Can we travel to that Star? Can we not put a Slide like the one in Playgrounds, and slide to these stars?” And, though being tired from the everyday drudgery, he would try to explain me how silly and impossible that idea was. 😀 But often, I somehow would argue with myself to reach the conclusions of such doubts and imaginations.

But one thing I was sure of was my love for the Cosmos. Thanks to my father, who constantly brought the magazines like Scope and Safari for me to read and develop my ingenuity.

I also remember how I tried to make a small glider aeroplane, I loved flying things. I always wanted to fly.  But unfortunately, the airoplane never flew, as one of my friends then broke it by mistake; making it impossible to repair.

The Star Wars series has been one of my most favorties, I remember how I wished it could all be true! My dreams of going into space were, and still are, so strong! )))

The knowledge about the pale blue dot that we inherit, and how fragile it is in the vast cosmic arena, came to me via Cosmos series, by Carl Sagan. I love this man! 🙂

I’ve heard a lot about Leh – Ladakh and its natural beauty. I have been eagerly waiting to go there. Well, before I visit the stars, would it not be a great idea to actually see whats up there? 😀

Indian Astronomical Observatory, headed by Indian Institute of Astrophysics, DST, is located in Leh-Ladakh region. I have been trying to get in touch with the guys in there for past few weeks, and finally GOT THE PERMISSION TO VISIT IT!!! :)) YEAH!!

Though its a day time permission, I’ve got some internal contacts whom I’ll try to convinve to let me in at the night time… WISHFUL THINKING!??!!?!?!?!?!?

Well, wish me luck! I hope I make it exactly as I desire. 🙂

The cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. – Carl Sagan

I guess, I’m becoming…

Footloose for the Truth!


Shall pass…

Longing. Discomfort. Pain. Agony. Infidelity. Suffocation.

.

.

Like water shaping the rock… slowly but firmly.

Reason…?

Oh, life. You too shall pass…?

Hmmm…


Wilderness of Solitude

~ Wilderness of Solitude ~

Its 6 o’clock in the evening of Sunday, 15th of May of 2011, and my mind is already wandering beyond time and across spaces. I feel “I need serenity, in a place where I can hide…”; I need to get the f*** out of here. So in less than an hour I decide to go to Somnath, where I own a small home, in order to finish up some work and to have some change. I took the 8:30 night bus that dropped me at Somnath at 5:30 in the next morning in a comparatively calmer, cooler and more humid atmosphere than back at home.

Here I am, on a desolation row…

Finishing up a part of my work, the next day I went out wandering around the village and the temple area. The stronghold of the temple and the trust would put even some of the richest and most secured venues at shame. Money matters.

Somnath Temple

The Temple and The Sea-shore of Somnath

Somnath, I believe, is not a place just for Preachers… it also welcomes Philosophers, Politicians, Profiteers, Punks and Pricks. Somehow, I too feel welcome! Indeed, religion is the most influential institution for its power and control; never mind the obscuration of the hidden agendas. While these kinds of trusts generally make in millions, one can easily spot the neglect that the village of Somnath has received from the so called growth of the region. Religion is a big business, indeed.

We hear stories of the religious tourism yielding commercial benefits to the localities.

Somnath Trust - Rate Card

big business..

Now, does this really help local businesses? May be it does, by putting the people out of the business. Take a look at the streets of the village to know how much benefit the localities have actually received from their beloved god or religion or the government.

There used to be a nice sea-shore, often considered violent and fatal, right next to temple. The plans of the government, as shown in the pictures below, are to stretch the land artificially by some landfills and create a safe harbor between the two extensions, where people can enjoy the ocean waves.

The Landfill - Extension

Extension to alter the sea-shore..

Cranes @ work...

Somehow construction and demolition are just two sides of the same coin...

Crane at work - 2

Crazy species we are...

Crane at work - 3

Finishing up the day work.. soon to change the shifts..

Sea-shore Harbor at Somnath

Work in progress.. life in progress..

Natural Deconstruction..

Caused by Ocean Waves, Courtesy : Construction endeavor.

Well, play around until the nature takes its turn, and when we pay the toll.

The Check Post

...or a war post?!? May be the infidels are gonna pay.

Next day, in order to finish my initial work for some plans that I have, I roamed around the internal streets, carrying with me my lost faith humanity and its “still alive” naivety…

gathering some fresh and organic mangoes for friends and family…

Mangoes

Mangoes - the Kesar breed .. the ones I like most..

.. and I discovered something really beautiful.  🙂

Animality

Humanity is obsolete.. we need a new term..

Life is precious. Love knows no boundaries.

Unfortunately, the fate of this planet lies on the actions of the most irresponsible and selfish species one can ever encounter.

Now that I’m back at home, the deafening screams of wilderness of my solitude ended with an utter sense of beautiful reality, less humanity.

Here are some more pictures of the wilderness I enjoyed, while escaping the solitude wrapped around by this naive society.

Society… crazy indeed. 🙂

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; 

There is a rapture on the lonely shore; 

There is society, where none intrudes, 

By the deep sea, and music in its roar; 

I love not man the less, but Nature more… 

– Lord Byron

Well, anyways, I’ve found a reason for me to change who I used to be… 🙂

Living Though Music, ‘Cause Life’s Worth It.


Quotes: From Into the Wild, some music I enjoyed listening during this trip and life’s learnings..



Awakening of a dream…?

This dates back just a few years. It was 2008 I guess. I wasn’t a topper, but of course an above average student in post-graduation at IIPM. I know many of you’ve heard a lot about IIPM – the profit making machine. And I too agree with it to an extent.

But the thing I wanted to share here is an incident that occurred in one of our Mergers & Acquisitions class. The faculty (teacher) belongs to one of renowned corporate house, holding a top managerial position. The discussion of that class was about how the global economy and international market works, and as usual, it was taken to a much higher level by that faculty, whom I respect a lot for his intellect and guidance.

Amidst the discussion, not knowing anything about Zeitgeist concept or any similar ideas then, I, out of curiosity and a glimpse of a possible better world that I could see, I asked the professor, “Sir, is it not possible to have no nation? Can we not let go off the economy and borders, and make just one nation of all the nations.. one entity that takes care of the entire earth and its resources?”

“Not really..” he said. Students laughed. But, I still smiled and my eyes were still shining!

“Why?” I asked. He said, “How else do you think the world will work? This is how the system is. THIS is how it is. There can NEVER be no nations.. no borders..”

The lecture ended with my unanswered questions and glittering curiosity and a dream… a dream that hopefully we all share today! :’)

This dream shall not die. 🙂

Why WINAMP is my all-time favorite music player?

Well, there are PLENTY of reasons I can point out, which leads me to believe WinAmp is THE BEST music player (not video, as I prefer & believe in VLC for videos – without doubt) for PCs out there. I though I’d share some of them today with you! 🙂

1) The Super Library-Seach Tool

WinAmp Power Search

WinAmp Library Search Tool

The amazing library search tool lets you instantly find any song / artist / album / genre / etc combination – and play it right away. In addition to this simplicity, you can also add / remove / arrange / resize library columns according to your need. Once sorted, it makes life quite easy!

2) Simplicity & Shortcuts:

If you really know how to work on computers, you probably know that the easiest way to manage your work is through keyboard shortcuts. You can resize / rearrange WinAmp in several ways. Double-click the title bar to switch between WinShade / Full Screen mode, mouse over (Windows 7) to quickly pause / play / previous or next song! While in focus, use keyborad shortcuts (Z, X, C, V, B) to do the same. There are tons of such shortcuts, which, once you’re used to them, makes you feel like you really are in control!
In addition to these, you can check out tons of other personalization / enhancement tools by going changing Preferences [Ctrl + P] in Options menu.

WinAmp_Windows_7

WinAmp Simplicity & Shortcuts

Go find a treasure of tools in the Preferences. If you prefer to listen music while working, simply enable Global Hot Keys, and control winamp even when you’re making a report or playing a full screen game (see below)!

WinAmp_Hotkeys

WinAmp Global HotKeys

Wasn’t that fun? Well, wait, there’s more to it.

3) Manage Your Music Library

I love the way I can manage all my music using one simple media library option – Watch Folders. Here, you inform WinAmp which in folders of your PC you keep your music. Then, set the options for automatic media scanning, adding and removal of media files from WinAmp database. Then, whatever you want to play, simply search it in the Library View. No more hassles in searching the location of that old favorite song – just type in artist name or album name or song or its genre, and its there.

WinAmp_Watch_Folders

Watch Folders in WinAmp Media Library Options

Outstanding, ain’t it?

4) ID3 Tagging

This is where you update the information of any song once and for all! The simple ID3 tagging option can be accessed through double clicking song name in main player window or by shortcut [Alt + 3]. Quite useful for DIY artists like me.

WinAmp ID3 Tag

ID3 Tagging in WinAmp

5) Visualization at its Best

WinAmp_Visualization

WinAmp Visualization rocks!!

Looking at these kind of visualizations while playing your favorite music just makes you want to sit back, relax and enjoy! 🙂

Well, there are some of my favorite things in WinAmp. I know there are tons of such useful stuff inside WinAmp – such as Notification Bar, Scrolling Info on Taskbar, PodCast subscription, free SHOUTCast radio, free songs everyday, etc, etc, et cetera. May be I’ll add them later, or leave it to you to find them out!? 😉

Anyways, have fun with music! Let me know if you too believe in Living Through Music. I’m all my ears!

CheerZ,

Holy Reprise

Apart from my keen enthusiasm for Astronomy, Physics & Music; I spent most of my childhood reading one of my all time favorite magazines – Safari and being astonished by the true stories it unveiled. The specialty of the magazine was its stunning representation of the fact, simple and captivating. But, truth isn’t always good.

The war stories of India with various neighbor-nations was one of its unique and best-selling concept. I’ve read most of them. But, the enjoyment of victorious battles or the sadness of defeats that came along often led to a retrospect. And, I realized that most of the wars that we engaged in ( – especially those involving India and Pakistan), were never really meant to start. Of course, the pressure and suppressed rage could never hold the fire forever. But, the roots of these all lied long long long back.. in the history of these nations.

I wouldn’t like to repeat the facts that can once again lead to the same arguments, but just highlight a simple dream that I visualized while learning these historical facts.

Can the errors be undone? How would the present have been if there wasn’t any partition? May be after some more struggle and somewhat more sustained period of pain, could we have not build one of the strongest & richest nation for us all? Where did we go wrong? What decision did we fail to execute? Why do we still have to suffer? Can not we reunite?

Here’s a small dedication, along with this belief, to all the countrymen of both nations. My attempt to recreate Pakistan’s beautiful national anthem.

Feel my dream.

Holy Reprise by RokZRooM

With Love, from India. :’-)

One Step

Long time back I saw a song on VH1, titled “The Importance of Being Idle”. Not that I fell in love with the song, but the message was excellent. When you’ve got nothing to do, whatever your do would most probably be the reflection of your inner desire, or as Steve Jobs had put it, “…somehow your heart already knows what you want!”

Sorry for not being around much, but you may agree how difficult it is in such times… a blank and bleak state of conscience, seeking desparetely for a ray of hope. You may just not know which step it is that can take you to the destination you really desire. You may even be unaware of that desire itself.

What to do?

Well, Enigma has already sang it, in the song Goodbye Milky Way – “Follow your heart, believe in faith..”;  I strongly recommend listening to this song, for a better, bigger vision that it helps listener visualize… dream big…here’s the lyrics:

“Goodbye Milky Way”

Shall I go, shall I stay
107 light years away
many times, so many doubts
But no reason to talk about

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you, children of the sun
But it’s time to go away
Goodbye milky way

For a better world without hate
Follow your heart, believe in fate
Only visions and the mind
Will guide you to the light

Mission is over mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
But it’s time to go away
Goodbye milky way

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
I go home until someday
I say goodbye, goodbye milky way

In 5 bilions years the Andromeda galaxy will collide with our milky way
A new gigantic Cosmic world will be born

So, I thought lets not think for a while, and just do… act.  🙂

And I spent some 17000 Rs. to buy a midi controller.. thinking may be its the next step. Got it yesterday! And started believing in my dream again!

Roland Edirol PCR 300

Roland Edirol PCR 300

When you think of what’s to gain, or to loose. When you weigh the bet, its seems its not easy. Its not meant to be. But when you think again, nothing else really matters. Everything else is secondary!

Toughest thing about any change that one desires, is to act upon it. But all it takes is a little courage, and the first few steps – One step at a time. And, to learn THIS, you got to be sitting idle for more than a while. 😉

Let’s see where does it take me.

Terminator – Salvation

Terminator - Salvation

Terminator - Salvation

WOW!

I could never watch a movie that I wanted to so badly in its first day first show! And a very few of the big-screen experiences I’ve had till date could deliver such a passion, thrill.. excitement!! Real entertainer!!

Its year 2018. The Skynet has taken over the control of Global weapon system, and most of the colonies the human race have developed so far are ruined to ashes. Except some underground existence of human race, only thing found on the land is debris of the devastated human marvels. Amongst these ruins lives the resistance, the secret army confined in scattered hideouts, with a common goal to destroy Skynet and a complete faith in John Connor.

But, the culprits behind the Skynet had already started its extreme version of Terminator. Marcus. The dashing, handsome hunk was once sentenced to death in 2003. But, he was revived later, upon his agreement to donate his body for R&D. The new Cyborg incarnation of Marcus with a body of bolts aimed to jolt has a brain and heart of a man.

Will John Connor and his army be able to destroy the Skynet? Or, the Marcus’ heart will be overridden by the purpose he’s remade to serve – genocide of human race?

Absolutely stunning graphics. Signature soundtrack with a qualitative reincarnation of the music (don’t miss shockingly awesome introductory music) and sound effects. A solid story line that a hard-core terminator fan OR any Sci-Fi fan would expect with an apt screenplay required for the plot to be perfectly generated. The second half slows down a bit, becoming a little draggy if you’re not connected with the storyline.. but worth watching for a hell-bent entertaining, its a great action thriller of the summer of ’09.

A must watch on the big screen. I’d rate this movie 8/10.

Album Review : 21st Century Breakdown by Green Day

If you’ve known me for long enough, you might know that I get deeply engrossed by and involved with the music I listen, I adapt, I love, and then… I live through.

There hasn’t been good new releases (for my taste) for quite some time in the international rock spectrum recently! But this one captured me, completely.

After the much acclaimed American Idiot, Green Day comes with another wonderful album with their own signature elements! If truth must be told, I never listened much of rock till I came across Metallica (well, thats too solid a taste for all to start with, but I loved their evergreen titles anyway! And yes, I can proudly say, I love rock!!!) Coming back to the Green Day’s release, 21st Century Breakdown, there’s much to offer to the listener in the two CD bundle with 18 solid tracks.

One of my close friends once had a discussion with me (when I was much into Hip-Hop and Rap and blues – all at once though for different reasons and specialties) when I argued whether Rock is the evergreen genre or not! I was ignoramus then!?

Especially after coming across some of the best music of the rock scene’s history, my perception changed a bit, giving a a bit preferential treatment and a special place for Rock in my heart.

Coming back to Green Day, I recall the first song I heard from them was Boulevard of Broken Dreams. Still, its one of my all time favorites! They’ve always proved the special place they deserve in the Rock scene.

21st Century Breakdown comes with 3 portions termed as acts. This gives a unique identity by segregating the tracks in a special theme, under the act names Heroes and Cons, Charlatans and Saints, Horseshoes and Handgranades. As always, you’ll fall in love the way they tell you the story.  Its a must-own album for rock fans, with a touch of ballads, a concern for the world overflowing in most of their songs, and lyrics filled with awesomely apt vocab.

Some of the must listen songs, which I’ve been constantly listening and humming for past couple of weeks, are Last Night On Earth, Viva La Gloria, Viva La Gloria (Little Girl), Know Your Enemy, 21 Guns, Restless Heart Syndrome… Ahh, well, each of them is special; and most of it will soothe your Rock appetite for sure. But these all are my (current) favs from this album!

Not saying I am capable of, but if I had to rate this album, it would get a score of something around 84/100. Though it was instinctive, I could separate the scores amongst: Music (19/25), Lyrics (21/25), Theme (20/25) and Technical (24/25) aspects.

Life is…?

While surfing around MarcAndAngel.com, a new discovery for me while stumbling upon, and listening to some enigmatic Enigma music in a lazy weekend; the most sought after question which I often enjoy playing around with appeared once again in front of me when a friend put up a status “tryin to figure out d purpose of life..” on her facebook.

And I muttered, “heh, does it really matter?” =)

Guess not. The only thing I truly believe as something important is having a dream, having a purpose; and no matter what it is, it should, at the end of the day, give you satisfaction.

A feeling of accomplishment, a little moment of pleasure, a flow of passion for what you do. A little change for the better. And in the end, all little things will sum up. The life so lived in the chase of dreams will help you rest in peace.

i.Quote: Not a day in my life passes undreamed! Not a moment in my life seems wasted!

Take all the risks you’re always afraid to. Make all the bets you’re afraid to lose against.

I would like to share with you this interesting image I found while stumbling upon the net.

The Journey of Life

Think over it. And try to implement. Indeed, the journey is more important than the start or the end! Make sure to make it hell of a ride. 😉

How about listening to “It’s My Life” and singing along!!?
