The Shuffled Music Interview

Lemonade had this nice tag up. You put your mp3 player on random shuffle mode, ask a question and let the player answer by what song it plays next. And since there's nothing more lazier than getting your mp3 player to give your interview, i am game:

"If someone says 'Is this okay?', you say?"
Escape - Enrique Iglesias
Run boy, run!!! Run from the stupid questions.

"What would best describe your personality?"
Skater Boy - Avril Lavigne
Couldn't have said it better.

I dunno but my friends seem to think that i have too strong a stomach for walking right through speeding traffic and the even more dangerous recklessness of striding up to a beautiful girl and getting it on.

"What is your biggest secret?"
Every Other Time - LFO
Too many secrets every other time

"What do you think of your friends?"
In the End Remix - Linkin Park
That's where i will be dudes/duddettes to make up for all the times when i was supposed to be there in the beginnings and the middles :P

"What should you post this as?"
Crash and Burn - Savage Garden
Burn iPod! Crash and Burn in hell!!! Heh.

Of Men and Their Mice

While walking to the bus stop today, humming to meri kahani playing on my ipod-lookalike, i came across a guy peeing next to the wall. Since four years of exposure to this event have made me feel numb to anything remotely related to waste management on the streets, it would have resulted in yours truly walking by with out a second glance except that there was a kid perched on his shoulders and looking down at his father's act of manhood. Since i was trying to maintain my distance from this odd scene, i imagined the conversation that would have gone on between peeing dad and peeping son:

son: What are you doing, dad?
dad: the same thing you do early in the morning, son.
s: aren't u supposed to do it in the toilet?
d: but son, this is the great indian freedom similar to our right to vote, free speech and to hide our tax rupees from the collector.
s: but wouldn't the wall start to smell?
d: see son, this is also a symbolic gesture. We want to advertise to society that we are really men and we can do it standing up.
s: (takes out mobile phone, activates video cam and starts recording the "water gate" scandal)
d: what u doing son?
s: i just want to advertise this to the world on, dad
d: (dad disappears faster than rajnikanth could flick the cigarette to his mouth)
