Steve Jobs @ Stanford .. 2005 Video

However hard you try, you can’t really hate the guy 🙂

Btw .. does the youtube on wordpress tag not work on Opera ??
The thing above seems to work fine in IE and I am not risking opening Firefox this machine.

Tere bin + Last Kiss – Pearl Jam

Two songs .. fairly different in presentation and very much around the same theme ..
Have been listening to these two only for the past hour or so.
Two of my temporary current favourites.
tere bin and Last Kiss

TERE BIN – Atif
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin
lekar yaad teri raaten meri kati – 2
mujhse baaten teri karti hai chaandani
tanha hai tujh bin raaten meri
din mere din ke jaise nahi
tanha badan tanha hai ruh nam meri aankhen rahe
aaja mere ab rubaru
jeena nahi bin tere
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin

kabse aankhen meri raah mein tere bichhi – 2
bhule se hi kahi tu mil jaaye kabhi
bhule na mujhse baaten teri
bheegi hai har pal aankhen meri
kyun saans loon kyun main jiyu
jeena bura sa lage
kyun ho gaya tu bewafaaa mujhko bata de wajah
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin …
tere bin main yun kaise jiya
kaise jiya tere bin …

Last Kiss – Pearl JAM
Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She’s gone to heaven, so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

We were out on a date in my daddy’s car
We hadn’t driven very far
There in the road, up straight ahead
A car was stalled, the engine was dead
I couldn’t stop, so I swerved to the right
I’ll never forget the sound that night
The screamin’ tires, the bustin’ glass
The painful scream that I heard last.

Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She’s gone to heaven, so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

When I woke up, the rain was pourin’ down
There were people standing all around
Something warm rollin’ through my eyes
But somehow I found my baby that night
I lifted her head, she looked at me and said
“Hold me darling just a little while.”
I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss
I found the love that I knew I would miss
But now she’s gone, even though I hold her tight
I lost my love, my life that night.

Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She’s gone to heaven, so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.
Oooh !! ooooh !!

Body Art ??

Ok people , I need help ..
I have decided that I have had enough of the medium hair, clean shaved , good boy look.
It’s time to change to evil.
After all, I am nearing the end of my bachelor days .. with my brother possibly getting married start of next year and my dad already pressing for a family marriage ( you know, the thing where elder brother marries the elder sister and younger brother marries the younger sister ) .. I feel that I don’t really have much time to do something substantial about my looks.
My efforts at growing hair were always thwarted either by people who said that it would look messy or by my Ex who had something against long hair. But, this time I have to be strong about this. I have taken the first step towards stardom .. I haven’t had a hair cut since the rather forgettable one in late July .. and given my uncle and aunt are very sporting .. I think I stand a chance to escape any further plan-damaging till I go home for diwali. Then, of course, I will need a major excuse to avoid the hair cut.


Anyway, since my hair-raising hair growing plan might just eventually fail, I have decided to try out something different. How about a tattoo .. Of course .. I won’t be adventurous enough to try out a huge one, but just a small one on my arm might be good for now ??
Anyway, I need to know, I know I am going for the evil look and all .. but does the tattoo getting process hurt .. I know body piercing does .. Of course it would .. they put things through your skin and is bound to hurt .. that is why it is off my to-get list. But a tattoo seems do-able. ? what say ??
how cool would this be ?

PS -> I just realised how long it’s been since i handled HTML 😀

A Request to $temp

Coming from a blogspot background does wonders to the confidence of a guy in differentiating spam comments from real ones. While most of jayaram comments would automatically be considered spam by any spam filter, most of Rocky’s comments would be ignored given the small text size and uniformity and generosity of :)s.
But Lately, I am getting some real Spam comments .. and when I say real.. they are not just real .. they are embarrassingly real. Imagine getting Viagra promoting ( no .. I did not get that ) or comments which help you “explore the intricacies of a woman’s body” ( I did get that .. ) .. but the latest one is a real embarrassment .. it says .. “Tips on how to get pregnant”. Now, while the Viagra promotion still has a far fetched relevance to a 24 year old guy like me .. How am i supposed to react to Tips on getting pregnant. If anything, I might be more interested in tips on avoiding pregnancy
I request a reader, who is either courageous enough to fool the company proxy logs, or one who doesn’t have a company proxy to worry about ( hereafter referred to as $temp ), to look up getting–pregnant dot blogspot dot com . and tell me if it has anything of relevance for a guy.
As if spam comments were not enough in making me doubt if my blog is a p-o-r-n site .. the search results do clear the doubts decisively.
For the uninitiated, WordPress tells you what search results helped readers to get to your blog. Now, I do remember writing a post about “the Conversation with a stranger“, but .. how does a search engine give out that post as a result when someone searches for the words “How to Make love to a stranger” (btw, who ever searches something like that) .. or the less porn-oriented “How to make friends with a stranger”. I request $temp to kindly look into this too.
A few others that beats me are ..
free hello tones in airtel – 2
To-lets at hyderabad – 1
how many km in an hour – 1
trick to apply free airtel hello tunes – 1
how to cancel hello tunes in airtel – 1

Of course, I don’t have anything to do with To-Lets in hyderabad, or with hello tunes in Airtel and what kind of a weirdo searches for “How many km in an hour” .. what is that even supposed to mean ??

People , probably accidentally land on the bangalore traffic appraisal certificate in this post while searching for “how many minutes in an hour” ( Another one i got ), which is still understandable. Also searching for “bitter Sweet symphony” might lead to my blog ( the chances are 1 in a zillion and i would like to see the search engine that returned by blog for that search ).

Ohh yeah .. in between all this hoopla . i forgot some other group of words that people searched for to get to my site .. “Rani mukherjee Sex Scene” .. HOW HOW HOW ?? Help $temp !!
