Blah Blah Blah....

After a bashful session on Soccer aka Football, I am back to my favorite topic "Cricket". Anybody still following India VS West Indies fanfare? I did the ritual for some time on the Internet.  Like the good old 70s or the 80s I was back to the era of audio commentary. This is because cost of watching live cricket on TV in US seems to rise like gas prices, "another word to note". When I say the word Gas, rest of world thinks about a stomach malfunction, but in US it is something that powers Automobiles. I know where we are getting to now, but let me move on. Direct TV offered plans for about $180 for the series.


My question, is there a big satellite up linking cost involved here? I can understand if it is from the other side of the world it doest cost to carry the signals all the way, however when the game is played near here, why in the hell ICC charges $200?   Simply Greed for money; the greatest joke here is ICC wants to popularize this sport in South and North America. I don't think a football fan would spend $200 to watch Kaif score a duck or VRV Singh doing something with the ball and call it bowling,  they are better off watching Ronaldo, Babito or Up-it-Toe.  Even cricket crazed Indians [like me] would think twice to subscribe paying unreasonable amount.  1st leave the the cost factor- think about this scenario – Should I pay and watch Kaif cook ducks or VVS and Dravid defend the ball to their best potential.   2nd the Indian "Indic-PatheicKometer" , [a device used to measure pathetic performances of Indians] readings is mind boggling.   Dravid failure to win test matches despite having very good opportunities. Dravid lost the one day to the underdogs quite pathetically. Overall did nothing great happened other than gaining personal mileage, and the usual baggage - Kaif scoring some runs after "Gajini" number of attempts , What the heck our million dollar coach doing? Enjoying his paid vacation in the Caribbean?


While I am still dreaming about winning the world cup next year our little neighbor Srilanka is busy trashing the English.   Srilankans have improved while we are going from bad to worse. Taking about self acclaimed all powerful English players, be it Soccer or Cricket, I feel major portions of their body constitution is made of Golden temple brand Atta+Maida.  They seem to get injured quickly.  


Wimbledon Tennis is going on if anyone still following it. Agassi has finally decided to quit, if I am correct he is been playing from 2BC. He has played against Chandragupta Mouriya , Ashoka, Alexander, then the real Jesus Christ till Mel-Gibson.  I salute this amazing player with determination. I have never seen anyone come back to win like the way he does.  Our popular tennis dream girl of India was kicked out in the first round. I am sure press will not dare to ask her [and of course get snubbed].  If she keeps failing, even her hard core fans will discard her, talking about discarding, have ever been discarded like a playing card? Like if the card is not needed you just drop it, if so I too know the feeling.


Ok enough of complains, something good now, that too about Indians, if you have Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.1 - Click on the about box in the help menu, when the about window shows up, click on the credits button, you will find the one more proof that we are a software super power.


Have a great weekend.


Ps: I saw on news that Britney spears is moving back to New Orleans, I pity people of New Orleans, after Katrina they need to face this now.



Well, world cup soccer is in full swing mode.

Let me warn you before hand, if you love soccer - keep loving it and do not read the following. This is a meticulous attempt to make fun of this uninteresting sport. I have never been a soccer aficionado and will never be one. I find this game runs short of events. [Dude! this is not windows computer program to generate events, it is a Sport]

Ten players chase the damn ball while another 10 seem to chase the ten who are busy chasing, while few color clothed officials direct the traffic like a railway guard with a flag and a whistle. The goal keeper stands there waiting for M18 bus at Laxmipuram Bus Stand, [formerly well known remote place in Chennai outskirt, currently a mini-city]. Goal keeper waits [not to be confused with traditional waitees], he is waiting waiting waiting and waiting, he practices his skill by catching passing flies and other domestic bugs. At times the round thingy with logos called the ball shows up, he catches with perfection.

Most of my friends are adherent soccer fans, they tell me it is the fastest sport and compares this to cricket, and says cricket is a very slow sport [Dravid! see what you have done]. I never watch and enjoy the sport based on its speed. A good picture painted by an artists takes time while it takes less than 2 minutes to scribble something [heehaw.. like this Blog] , yes agreed scribbling is fast but still you see - it is a scribble.

MOJO for a game is calculated based on difference between Delta 2pi x 5gama/2 in simple words - MOJO for a game is calculated based on the events that happen in the game. [Dude, don’t bore us, tell us what are these events?] Let us take a Cricketing example: Every action in cricket is filled with events, Consider this event - A spinner or a medium pacer bowls – let us see the outcome: he can spin the ball, he might not if his name is Anil Kumble, he can bowl in-line, but can disappoint if his last name is Agarkar, get a wicket, but it can be a no ball or if his first name is Zaheer it can be a well directed donkey drop, while on the other end, a batsmen can launch this to a six, or a four, a single, or if it is Dravid he will just defend it or the batsmen can get out for a duck [Yaw! you guessed it, - it is Kaif]. Just a single event has the potential to generate about 10 outcomes in a minute. Note the time interval between events, it is very short (

Let us take Soccer, IMMAO [in my most arrogant opinion] there are very few events that happens in this game. Scoring a goal, a free or corner kick or passing the ball, sometime teams make donations – score goals for the opponents. This goal scoring event is something similar to filling water into a big bore well in order to restart a weak motor [called priming]. The time interval between these events is too long, thank you St. Peter this game is just played for 90 minutes.

After 90 long plus some extra minutes for wasting time, if they find out that there is no soul in either team to score the winning gooooooal, Woh Woh Woh! The winner is decided on penalty kicks. Few players are selected for penalty kicks while the rest are asked to take rest. After 90 minutes of mind-boggling running and chasing, the game is literally in the hands of the M18 commuter oops, goal keeper. What a waste. [Dude, test cricket ends is draw after 5 days of nonsense, but one day/twenty20 saves your ass here]. Referee rules: The rules were so tight, even if a player scratches his head due to excessive lies - he gets a Yellow card. If the player asks another player to scratch for him – referee shows him the Red card. Still if the players keep scratching, Referees will seize player’s credit card and use it. There was record number of penalty cards shown during this world cup. Experts believe that this is due to minor rumor; some one had told players that these cards contain hidden casino codes, after each violation players will get to know this by scratching the cards.

Q1. Why is Soccer not popular in USA? Answer: Winner of MLS [Major league Soccer] cannot be called as the world champions. Generally winners of all major sport events in USA are blindly termed as world champs. According to geography books available in US, World starts near Niagara Falls, Canada and ends somewhere near Tijuana, Mexico

Q1.1. World calls this game as football Why US calls this as Soccer?
USA has a sport played using hands but calls it Football. Hence! to avoid confusion for already confused people.

Someone asked me why Indians are not playing soccer; I told them with an awkward smile that we outsourced it to China. Another good reason for me not to follow soccer is - India sucks in this sport at various levels. So it does in hockey, athletics, tennis, golf, volley ball, sugrivan ball, water polo and the talented mind boggling sport of Canada –curling.

In my humble opinion [after all this trash talk], the only good thing about this sport is it is damn simple to understand, may be that’s why even the French are playing it with ease.

Good day!


All Right! Sit Tight! If anyone cares! My Blog is back.

The world wide networks are blessed. From today WWW network packets would carry this additional garbage. To celebrate this return, TCP/IP has been renamed as Trash Carrying Packets of Important People.

SFAQ: [short F…asked question] Why in the hell you came back?
My so called boasted busy schedule never seem to end hence the only way to prime my Blog back is add this as a task in my busy schedule.

Today as I woke up in the morning, I saw a bright light that came through the window; I thought it must be God making his usual appearance in my dreams to cleanse me from my sins. Nop! Since the list is too long, based on frequent chatters in Gods network, I corroborated that God has outsourced this effort to St. Peters. Poof! Within few seconds I realized it is not even St. Peters, the light came from something big, bright, round and orange, Yes! damn it, it was something called The Sun, not the putrid Tamil TV channel, the real one, the one that provides light, energy , Viagra “blah blah …” to our Bhoomi mAtha – the Earth.

After about 200 million years of non-stop rain. Gees’ Sun shine in DC metro, Water! Water! Every Where - Average speed on interstates - 160934 Centimeters per hour, time taken to travel 10 miles is equal to time taken to reach India via Air India. Few unlucky people in and around DC were busy loading stuff in their version of Noah ark, this time instead of almighty God, it was the government who got them evacuated.

Weather grandfathers and grandmas in all the low and high definition Radio and TV have predicted that everything is over and we should see sun and only sun for next couple of days. I wish we stay dry for next 6 months, all said and done based on their prediction records mmmm.. it does look cloudy out side now.

Finally, People, while liberal radio and other green peace groups are busy blaming Global warning for this rain, Psst… here is a secret, I have a better reason for this non-stop rain, Yes! People I have been working my full quote of 40 hrs without wasting even a minute for past month. It has to rain!

All Right! Sit Tight! If anyone cares! My Blog is back.

Good day.

As I was browsing through Udhaya's blog , Vasikayakari got my attention, it took me about 30 minutes to compose the lead tune for this song.

I have great pleasure in introducing 2 new artists in this production.

Lead vocalists Vidyu, based out of Virginia she contacted me via Email with her audition tracks. After hearing her tracks, I wasted no time to book her in for the song. Vidyu can sing in Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada. Vidhyu simply rocks all through the track, she sang every expression I expected from her in the composition. We are currently working on more music.Here is another news leak - Vidyu would be singing live along with popular Hindi play back Abijith during July 4th weekend in Houston. My best wishes to her for the show.

Next Introduction - "Sound Engineer" - Bharath [Bharathidasan Venkatesan]. Based out of the Bayarea CA, Bharath owns a state of the art audio studio equipped with Protools HD system and tons of other musical gigs, yes I found one more person just like me with MTNC Syndrome [Musical Technical Nut Case]. Bharath using his engineering expertise has done a clean job in sound balancing and mixing the track. This song was mixed on the latest Protools HD system. Bharath is also a drummer and a keyboard programmer, he has also played few drum parts in this track. I think we have a long working friendship in place.

Flute Vidwan Raman, I had the great pleasure of meeting Raman in a concert couple of months ago. Raman is a disciple of Indian Classical Flute genius N.Ramani. Raman is an accomplished musician with fantastic accolades. A great pleasure for to me work with him and learn from him. Raman conducts flute training classes and workshop around Maryland area. Currently Raman and I are working on few instrumental albums . We just completed an album for Yoga and Mediation.H1Bees Inc will be producing this and it should be out around Fall 2006. This will also be sold in India. Soon Raman and I will be performing live on stage. Plans are being drawn by H1Bees inc.

Finally - There is a rumor that Udhaya cultivates variety of plants in his back yard that blooms all round the year with Tamil and English lyrics. I need to check it out, I know him for about a decade now and you know, I am yet to meet this damn guy in person. As always I have my studio1234, I have Udhaya for lyrics.
