I have never seen a man who was not atleast my equal.

If only everybody had the same view…

Video Search

My video tutorial list is growing and more often I am referring to the videos for pointers rather than the documentation. Is there any tool/program that searches on what people are saying on the video and forwards the video to the appropriate part? If not, there is a million dollar idea for you to work on 😀

Finding neverland

Saw Finding Neverland. I havent read peter pan, wish I had, hope I will.

I may sound a little naive and childish, but there is definitely a part of me that never wants to grow up. I suppose you will say everyone wants that and rubbish away that thought as just a side effect of the movie, but having known myself for such a long time I assure you this is not a result of the movie, although this post definitely is. Have you ever believed in fairy tales? I used to. The tales I believed in, you know them, they are very famous, mahabharata, ramayana, prahalada. I liked them a lot and honestly believed in them. There is a beauty in innocence which is as beautiful as nature itself. I had that. Now I have mucked up myself with logic, rational thought and all that stupidity. I wish I can go back to my neverland.

Kaadalin vilunden…

It has been about 36 hours since I saw the
movie ‘Kaadalil Vilunden‘, still I get a fit when I try to think
about the movie.
No, I am not the
first victim of the movie, the hero himself has a fit during the movie,
the cameraman has also suffered from violent seizures as evidenced by
the shakiness in the print, and random slicing and splicing of the reel
(which gives the impression of incoherence between the scenes)
indicates that the editor was also not spared.
A certain part of my brain is dead. A certain
other part of my brain is considering legal action on certain other
parts for attempted murder. That certain part is refusing to
communicate with the remaining parts, and has gone on to declare itself
as an independent entity and is already composing a national anthem.

The movie projects an entirely new perspective to life, it makes you
understand the meaning of life, the universe, the vedas, the
upanishads, easter islands, paris hilton etc, and promptly suggests you
to commit suicide for there is nothing more to live for. I have been
trying to single out one particular scene as the pinnacle of absurdity,
but every scene seems to be equally qualified that I have difficulty in
doing so.

The movie starts with the usual boy-meets-girl and falls ‘madly’ in
love etc, except that the hero actually turns out to be mad. He
believes his dead girl friend to be alive and ends up killing himself
when he the villain kills the dead body of the heroine, that’s
right the villain kills the heroine’s dead body. IMO, this movie
certainly qualifies as WMD and wouldnt be surprised if america decides
to declare war on us some time soon.

Now that I have spelled out the facts concerning the movie, allow me
speculate on a couple of things, I think the hero paid to act in the
movie, as did the heroine, i also think the heroine is a mega-serial
actor, a couple of UI changes cannot hide that fact.
