Roadhouse Blues

Out of Star Wars mania:) This is an essay about some of the memories connected to this song.

Enter The Vader

Check out my review of the latest offering from George Lucas.

Review of the Clone Wars

I have put up the review of the Clone Wars. Check it out! Trivia - It was shown as a daily series in 3 minute slots in Cartoon Network. Luckily I managed to catch it in one go:)

Anon's: Google Search

While I am in the middle of Star Wars mania my friend some of my friends have been writing more useful stuff(as opposed to friends who are not writing at all!?!). Annon has written a lot of reviews of the iShuffle. Check it out, especially both of you, Sujith and Venks. And don't show any mercy, use his comments page and your colourful words liberally:)

Also check out his template - me really like it!

When Star Wars fans go insane

This is a cool pic. Follow this link to see more of the modded car.

Beautiful work. I especially like the R2D2 unit and yes, the dashboard with a place for the light saber. I for one will join this road squadron without a second thought;)

Star Wars = Dune + Flash Gordon + Hidden Fortress + LOTR + Ben-Hur ...

If you are like me and read a lot of books and watch a lot of movies you see a lot of stuff happening which gives you a feeling of deja-vu. Somtimes it is outright copying of stuff while othert imes it is an interpretation of older material. Granted that the line is thin but there is a lint. Wise men like Lucas accept this and readily point out their interpretations and sources, at least most of the times. Since I was thinking of the Star War movies again a lot of things in the movie seemed so much like other stuff that I had read. For example the parallelism between the LOTR set of books and Star Wars cannot be denied. For more such connections read this article.

More correctly, I have almost got it...the ticket for Revenge Of The Sith, that is. Booked the tickets for the Sunday show; should be in myhands by the morrow. Would have loved to see it on Premiere night. However the missus has to work on Saturday, so Sunday seemed more feasible.
Very excited about it. Right now I am pondering on the logistics of how to watch the 5 episodes and Clone wars before watcing Episode Six [Edit: I mean Episode 3].
As an aside the new KFC is in the same mall as the multiplex where I will watch the movie. So some major original recipe eating on Sunday I visualize:)

"Living La Vida Yoda"

One cool take of an useless song;) (Reminds me of the other cool song Y.O.D.A) Hey if you are a Star Wars fan(atic)s check out the rest of this site. Some really good essays on Star Wars can be found here.

BTW if you are not a Star Wars person and the movies and idea of star wars makes you sick I would advise you return after a week or two as right now I am in the middle of a Star Wars obsession:D

of course if you truly do not believe then all I can say is that I find your lack of faith disturbing!!!

This iis a cool take on Star Wars that I had seen some years ago. Check it out!!! When you are there check out Jar Jar's link too. I had the same feeling that something like this should have happened to him:)

Indian Princely States

Stumbled onto this page as I was browsing this site to know about different flags. Funny how we never learnt about the princely states in our history classes! For anyone interested do not miss the links to the flags of the different princely states, further down the page.

Be back in a while

Hello friends, I have been lax in updating this page for some time. My Bad! I must ask you to humour me a day or to more on account of my comp getting fritzed. Should get it up and running. So do drop in after a couple of days.

Many thanks for your patronage.
