after all the lines about them for the past few days....I gotta really round it off.



In a nutshell...ACEthetics was a hit!

SUNSHINE SUNSHINE SUNSHINE

Well...I dunno what to say except for that title.
A hot hot (tempered) ACE co-ordinator 'TELLS' us that we are getting on stage in 45 minutes for a mock-rock competition and going there was a must.
Next 45 minutes went as follows:

5...we are speaking to the ever screaming Co-ord and she was shouting at everything as usual.

10...we are trying to confirm who all are getting on stage with the NaXatra Gang.Plans were to combine groups with another gang called Punarvidhi but the organisers wanted two seperate participations from these two gangs.

15...Akshit(Punarvishi Gang) is applying Mehndi to the chicks


20...Akshit is applying Mehndi to the chicks


25...Akshit is applying Mehndi to the chicks


30...Akshit is applying Mehndi to the chicks and I finally confirm that he is getting on stage with us.I ask him to get their song for us...great, the song is taken care of.Lets head to Keshava's place.


35...we get a lungi from Keshava's place and a bat,a head scarf and two pairs of goggles from my room.


40...the co-ord is shouting as usual and we pick up some more props lying around the stage and the dressing room:
A film Banner that said: Krazy
A long insulation pipe thingy.
A piece of Garden hose.
and we also fetch my helmet, Rohit's rain cap to go along with our get-up ;)
Our "Miss.TechNIEks" applies a long 'naama' on my forehead with a lip-liner to make me look more horrible than ever.


45...5 of us backstage are waiting for 5 more to join us before our part begins....and we hear a familiar voice say "...and our next performers are NaXatra!!!!!! Please give them a big hand"
I pluck the stalk of a plant and tuck it in my jeans and jump onto stage...


6 minutes of heavy metal[\m/] + slow romantic songs[ ;p ]

We win second place!

To be honest yesterdays win in the skit didn't seem like a win at all, because the script was written specifically for a prize rather than response.Besides lemme mention that there were only 4 teams for skit, out of which one was DQ and the other was too dumb.We were numero uno among a small bunch of clowns except ofcourse for the team that won second place.
Success was what I felt today...the realisation I hope is quick and painless.I don't want any of this to get to my head, even though we only came second...it feels like first!

I went there to ensure it was a time to remember...it was better than I expected.









Hollywood quiz

It only seems fair to talk about our quiz in a dedicated entry :P
Today morning we were in for a rude shock.The venue(Drawing Hall 3) that was alloted to us for conducting Hollywood quiz was given to Bollywood quiz.
We had to be content with a mere "software lab 3" a place we were given earlier but had finally managed to salvage a better room with also the facility of a mic.

But nooooooo for some greaaaat reason everything was changed to something else.
And no, we were not even informed about it.We only found out because we saw a silly notice that went like " Bollywood Quiz. Test your BW quotient 11 AM , Drawing hall 3".
WOW!!Hats off to the Superrr duperrrr organising.

BTW...the main poster that was put up didn't feature or advertise only one....ONLY ONE event as part of ACEthetics..no points for guessing which event. :)


Anyway...every single person we had invited so far just appeared at the old venue instead of S/W lab 3.

Improvise my dear Watson...improvise...and that we did.In all the hurry-burry of practising for skits and preparing questions, I had never had time to personally invite any friends to take part...and that I started at 10:45 AM. The quiz was supposed to have taken off at 10:30AM

We needed to 13 teams or more to conduct a preliminary round...otherwise a prelim was not needed.
Our status has stayed put on 8 teams registering from 10:50 to 10:59 AM.I just throw my gaze at the S/W 3 for a moment and suddenly I see about 6 more teams walking in hordes into the lab.
I run in and start praying that I don't get more teams anymore...we just couldn't accomodate so many teams.SHIT :P

Anyway..some really smart teams showed up and I kept fearing a tie and everything looked set to bring in a tie breaker.
Batta screwed up once and then it looked like there would be some protest.yeah right!The chick with the super fake accent looked like she could kill Batta with her answers.
A quiz that was supposed to be won by a team of super brains Akshit and Prashali ( Who looked like they owned the place - from the beginning ) was won by other teams.
No regrets.


I will still shout at the end of the day that "Ace rocks"

Some more sunshine!


Well, you heard about the results and you saw the video.The skit in the video was something that didn't fetch us a prize but did fetch us some reaction.
We performed again, just to impress the judges and not the crowd.The trick worked.Now all the bragging for the boys has been provided.R.I.P.
We won first prize...looks like the sunshine is coming from a different direction this time.

If it wasn't said...

There is a saying in kannada - Mutthu odidare hoythu, maathu adidare hoythu. It means, once a pearl is shattered , once something is already said, You can't change it back...you cant set it right!

There must be a lot of occassions when I have said things I regret.Being a person who speaks out his mind without a second thought or simply an 'extrovert' as some choose to call me, I have pretty much never learnt how to hold back my true expressions.But the trouble doesn't end there...I have ended up saying things completely opposite to things I wanna say.I have said things I don't believe in and it has landed me in soups thicker than jelly belly.

But have there been any such days when you have heard someone else say something bad about you directly or indirectly? You hear someone very close to you say something negetive about you and this just makes you think so much that YOU start wishing the person had not said it...(forget the one who has said it)?


Consider a man is going through a not-so-good time and he tries to find happiness in small things in life.Now one of his close friends complain that he brags a lot.The "bragging" drastically reduces.Now you start wondering whether the guy stopped bragging or stopped sharing things with you? Would it be the same if it wasn't said?
If only it wasn't said...

Spam anyone?...anyone?

Spam...it's everywhere.EVERYWHERE!
I use the 'report spam' button much much more than any other button!

At first were the spam that were hell bent on getting you to open their mail so that we could view the "hot babe" or "Awesome aunty" picture sent by some stranger who probably is so generous that he wanted to show it to everyone, even people he didn't know.Well what he didn't know was that there weren't too many people who would fall for that trick.

Then came the spam that read "IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!" ( '!' to the power of infinity) or "MUST READ!!!!!!"(again) or " OPEN SOON" all of which had " dont give a crap about me, just delete me" written all over them.

Third was an era of spam which were from people so concerned about you that they wanted you to enhance parts of your anatomy that didn't even exist!How sweet....but I think I'll pass.

Now its the invasion of invitations.No wonder.Every 100th person in India seems to be opening a networking site and I get an invite from a site I have not even heard of each day and every now and then I hear myself saying...



*bigadda.com - oh really? good luck!

*minglebox.com??.......I like orkut better!


*tvshuffle.com. - WHAT!?!?!?!

*youmint.com .......I dont care how many SMS you can send , just dont send me an invite

*yaari.com I havent even heard of this god-damned site brother so take a hike.

*Shtyle.fm no I dont want a soft drink or champagne...you got coconut water?

*mginger.com oh nobody told ya honey? that stuff doesnt work

*Jhoos.com arre khoon choos ke jhoos join karvaoge kya shaane?

*zorpia.com one more mail from you and I'll Zorp-ya!

*dont "challenge" me to a "dropout challenge" - even my dog can beat you at it(too much?) ;)!

*No I am not waiting to join - jaxtr.com


*desktopdating.com...what?....excuse me....what?....what are ya gonna think of next? DesktopDoing.com?

*Stumbleupon... - re:Hi dude! I got your invite, thnx.Anyway, who the hell are you and how did you get my email ID?

*hi5.com....for the hundredth zillionth millionth time.I am already there, leave me alone!

*WAYN.com:your invitation is gonna expire sign up soon....my my I'm so glad you told me just in time!

...and my discovery of new sites is still going on, I have decided to write a book now.Maybe Ill soon be on Oprah with a book that is titled something like "How spam changed my life" or something like that with everybody in the audience nodding their head as if they understand something and then finally have everybody but me in tears mainly because they thought Oprah would give them all free cars but ended up getting my book.

I am awaiting the next generation of spam that will keep me busy with the report spam button.


Disclaimer:This silly entry does not endorse in any way directly or indirectly or in-indirectly any of the stupid sites published along with it.It has been published purely to vent out the writers frustration over spam.Thank you for bearing with us.God bless you.
PS:Please do come back and read the next one.

;P ;P

So many wannabees

The revolutionary new movie...revolutionary in what way?
1 in every 20 girl we come across now wants to be like Geeth from Jab we met.

*When I was in 1st standard ,1 in every 2 guys wanted to be John Rambo...
*2nd standard it was Hulk Hogan.

*10th standard....I almost completely lost it then watching all those guys who wanted to be Mr.Bean.Good lord, what next?
With films getting better,the future then looked bright and then came Jab we met.
COME ON girls,if everything in the movies could be so easily copied and implemented then you would be probably kidnapped by 20 ugly looking rowdies and rescued by a handsome hero at least two times by now.Twice because the male-female ratio is pretty bad in India.You would also carry your books in your arms rather than in your backpack so that you can bump into a guy at every corner and let them fall.Ah so Filmy.You know the rest!

All these brown-eyed cum brown-teethed girls now want to be loud ,over-excited and talkative and ("playfully") falling on top of every guy she meets just because its...bubbly and cheerful and sooooooo GEETH! When someone raises an eyebrow it suddenly becomes "I am just enjoying myself " or "This is how I am!!" .Oh really madam? where were 'you' till Jab we met released? and why-o-why don't u fall on top of the girls too?
All the guys who love the so-called 'touching-touching' flock to all the newly found Geeth wannabes.Hurray...India Shining!
We already had the Britney Spears or Paris Hilton wannabes ,now this is just a more indigenous wannabe I guess(As I said - India Shining)."Thu I am not like those girls" still refuses to die down.:P . Anyway we all know this is not what Geeth's character really is like, she is infact just an ultimate fun loving girl.


Not to mention all the kids across India who now claim to dyslexic or just want to be( I already told you about this).

Thankfully no guys want to be the nice chubby gay looking guy from JWM.But what the hell they want to be Vin Diesel from 'XXX' and the 'Fast and the Furious' or to get more indigenous again - Dhoom and D:2 which were a poor hollywood remakes in the first place)...here we go again...a 100CC Bajaj bike turns into a mean mean racing machine...one fall and he is a gallant gladiator flaunting his injury.
Then of course the Casanova wannabes who manage to get one girl to reply to him properly after 6 semesters in the college and think..."wohohow am I on a roll or what? ".Well when JWM released I guess it made their lives.

And oh, there are other wannabes too..not just filmy.There is the 'American' wannabe...and the 'American-turned-Spaniard-turned -god knows what-turning into -god knows what next' wannabe ,the only wannabe who(which) is in my class I guess.A bunch of rowdy wannabes.No dearth of rock star wannabes...wow so "interesting" this bunch,always talking about rock-stars who made songs whose lyrics they couldn't grasp by just listening to the song and wanna head-bang just because it is supposed to be kewl rather than to enjoy the song.I know one such wannabe who took to drinking heavily just because a rock music bar or whatever-the-hell-you-call-it-bar came up in the city.Until then he had sworn to never touch anything that classified as containing alcohol.Dude!Get a life!

I guess its wannabes who run colleges...because 1/3rds of a college population is full of them.Besides they form a huge part of my entertainment.Without them, college would be boring.



NOTE:
I love the character Geeth from JWM,
I like Mr.Bean,
I like some of the rockstars,
I like Americans and Spaniards...some and definitely not Bush,
I love Rambo,
I like Vin Diesel a lot,
This not-so-appease-all entry does not mean I have anything against anybody...its just the wannabes that I am talking about and most importantly none of the wannabes that I have spoken here about know that this blog even exists, which is why I wrote it in the first place! ;)

Shaddap!

It's all about yap-yap.
Shut up!!
When will peeepuhuh-al learn not to put all their eggs in one basket????
Well if ya got just one, then make an omlette outta it...but puh-leeeeeeeeeeze not this brother.
First a guy acts girlish, tries to mock the rock-hard doc behind my back.Hey ya got balls? Why doncha do it on ma face bugga?Now I see you've shut the *ahem* up.Good!
And then today morning I learn I am a bloody groupist.Shame on me.Burn me Burn me.
Later ofcourse, all sorts of nuisance that you gotta put up with when everything is transparent,at least to yourself.
Hey Bhai...you used your brains, but whats the use?
Keep saying that,I'm gonna jam my foot up your @$ , thats the use.
A record of having never fallen from the bike...finally broken, I take a fall at the bake point circle(Technically-but no big deal).
Tear my jeans.Now I have seen everything.
"Ice is gone now, you can come here "(Actual line: hu Ice hoda, neeniga baa ) . Okay, I have heard everything.
Now I am supposed to be upset..oh do you know me at all?
Its the time of twisted twists and hairpin bends, life is now all so topsy turvy...DON'T PUT ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET.

My best thoughts are re-assured...I'm safe with my friends!
It's been a memorable day :)
