Sometimes, I wish I could turn my editing eyes off

… but if I did, then I would probably miss out on some of the fun that Indian English has to offer.

A precursor? Probably. A promise? Perhaps.

I was making a feeble attempt at cleaning out some of the clutter in my living room, and I quickly got distracted when I remembered that I had brought back a copy of the booklet that had accompanied the DWAB “One Final Episode in Our Attempts at Persistence” record. What should I do? Continue cleaning? Or scan the booklet and post it online?

DWAB: The Song that Didn't Make it

I know… you are all rockin’ out so hard to the new DWAB album “New and Found Songs Keep the Music Playing” and you just don’t know what to do with yourselves while you wait for new DWAB music.

Well, your wait is over since I found another song that I hadn’t included on NAFSKTMP. I couldn’t figure out what to call it, so I simply called it “The Song that Didn’t Make it.”

I've been so busy...

… that I can’t really think of much to write about. So I’ll give you some doodles instead.

The Gita in Pictures

Here’s something that some random portion of my readers might be interested in. And don’t worry. I haven’t turned all religious. I have just always liked the pictures—they’re part of my childhood days…. The quality here isn’t the best. I took photos of the illustrations in PS Mehra’s illustrated “Shrimad Bhagavad Gita in Pictures” which is printed on somewhat waxy textured paper. Scanning would have probably been a better solution, but it was my last day in Santa Barbara and I didn’t have the time to tackle this properly.

"Self-portraits" aka "The end of an era"

It’s the end of an era, I guess. My trademark is no more. I’m serious. It’s gone. My built-in cat-toy … my man-leash … —whatever you want to call that strange braided patch of long hair that I have had for what? Fifteen years?—met its fate with a pair of scissors on Sunday, March 23, 2008. Seeing that I had shaved my beard some two weeks before that, I guess it is going to be a lot more difficult to do self portraits now (see Exhibit A).
