change is something that i don't have a good opinion about. i've never liked change and i stand by it, but i need to learn accept it. it ain't that easy though. it happened at every phase of my life. i lose friends, i made friends. and i dont want to be no stupid when everyone and everything around me change. and hence i learn to accept change and bring this change in my blog template.
but still, i dont like to change.

PS1: this post means a lot more than what it actually says. i don't want to say it all, i hate change man. damn!
PS2: Happy New Year guys in advance.

moments to remember

to the gtalk n office mail,
n the ferrero rocher thru post.
those pizza huts and pani puri centers, 
n the choc donuts n hot choc fantasys. 
the bike rides on traffic filled roads, 
endless exchange of short messages,
n long conversations on vodafone
and the dumb me.. 

started unexpectedly and ended so quickly
that is life! thanks to bangalore

PS: No PS this time! And I know its a contradiction, so is life..

movies in the recent past

The list is not comprehensive though, here I go -

Bourne Supremacy - Loved the movie, but should've watched its prequel before watching this!

300 - There was a period when I watched this movie over and over everytime I had nothing else to do. Watched it again, and loved it again. 'No retreat, no surrender' 

Forgetting Sarah Marshal - Irritating but equally entertaining

Young Frankenstein - I shouldn't have watched this movie. My Halloween's day got screwed up coz of this one. Can't say more about this

Bourne Identity - Now am a fan of Matt Damon. Am not authorized to reveal more about Operation Treadstone.

The Gladiator - General Maximus Decimus Meridius stole the show and stole my heart with his acting skills. How can I not praise the background music (which I didn't observe when I watched this movie before)! Extrordinary!!

Bourne Ultimatum - this made me wait for the 4th part which happen to be in the making apparently. 

Step Brothers - I would give only 3 stars out of 10 for this comedy!

The Karate Kid - Motivating story of an underdog, Pat Morita is really charming. 

The Girl Next Door - Was searching for Elisha Cutberths movie which I loved when I watched some years back and ended up in this movie by the same name which was released in 2007. Movie based on a real story in which a teenage girl was physically abused, tortured and killed.

Artificial Intelligence - Director Steven Spielberg is famous for his creativity in science fiction and this movie just strengthens the fact

Wanted - Bullet curving madness and Angelina, oh my god she is just ......... (u know what i mean, fill the blank for urself)!

Troy - I've watched this movie N times, and watching it for the (N+1)th time still makes me love the movie. Eric Bana rocks in the movie

Toy Story I - I wonder how creative people get in making such movies. I'm not a fan of animation movies, but this one I just loved it. 'Buzzlight year: To infinity and Beyond'

Toy Story II -  Same as above

The Notebook -  Cute movie! This one made me wonder if I'm a sucker for romantic movies. 

My Sassy Girl - Ah! Jeon is cute, cuter, cutest!!!

Quantum of Solace - Not a typical bond movie. Bond gets emotional, which is not the case in general. And where are those crisp and sharp dialogues 'Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred' ?

The Departed - Jack Nicholson rocks, all in all a decent watch.

Karate Kid II - Loved this as well, this movie like the previous one is more about the relation between a teacher and a student.

Karate Kid III - My love for the previous two parts made me watch this, but this happens to be a desperate continuation. Not as good as the previous two, but still good!

Hancock - 'Call me an asshole one more time..' Will Smith is really an asshole to do this movie

The Passion of the Christ - Did Jesus really go through all that? :(

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benifit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan - Lol, what a movie

Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle - Funny one! 'The universe tends to unfold as it should' to these two Asian guys who goes in search of their White Castle Burgers. 

Hard Target - Add 3 or 4 songs and it makes a perfect Bollywood movie!

Fight Club - Superb concept! 'This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time... If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?'

Edit 1: Forgot mentioning a few which I've watched very recently - The English Patient, Rocky I, Incredible Hulk, The Game Plan and Wall E. That lil kid Madison Pettis is really cute in The Game Plan.

the little everything

the snow, the sunshine and the leafless trees
the darkness, the wind chill and the lonely paths
the pain, the happiness and the confused mind
the bad times, the good friends and the soothing solace

What was that

I was looking for a dead man who had been buried over a century ago. Searching the graph network of all the graves in the second depth-first method in decreasing order of the finishing times of the results of the first depth-first search, I visited all the vertices of that component graph in topologically sorted order. And then estimated the downstream nodes' delay as the flow of traffic information in the direction towards the moon from each of the nodes, and measured the experienced delay of the downstream nodes. Wait, am I to remember Floyd Warsall? Screw them, this is my world and I make my own algorithms. But, am I too civil to books? Is that a dead person who had not been buried at all? Is that a royal female mummy with a raised right arm. Is that Nefertiti? I dream a lot! 

PS: What the fuck have you done lately?

Friday Fun

Had loadsa fun today! In the chronological order - 
  • Went to a group meeting where I met a few undergrad students from China who came on a exchange program to our university; took part in answering their questions and doubts. They weren't sure if they should come back to USA again either as an exchange student or for their grad studies. 
  • Went out for lunch along with a group of international students. It was fun, tiramisu was yummy :D

  • Skyped (conf call) with a couple of friends back in India. 
  • Went to this Small World Coffee Hour program we have in our university and tasted Korean Food. Had Kimchi, Japchae, Rice Cakes and Kimbap. Good stuff, the Japchae is really cool. Its made of Sweet Potato, and it looked like those glassy noodles. Met lots of new people there, a few people indirectly related. (One lady was sister of my undergrad classmate, and a few others friends of friends...)
  • Now I'm here writing all this stuff! Now I wanna have more fun and end the day, but goddamn final exams are coming. boo-hoo :(
Now thats my name in Korean :) :) Well, i've tweaked that thing a bit (removed my name which was in English).
