New website under construction

13 Jan


We had hoped to rollout the new look of the blog website by the end of this week and hence were putting off writing anything new here. But as is the problem when a team is involved, there are differences of opinion regarding the layout, styling, functionality etc etc. Basically we are fighting a lot. Anyway, I think we should have everything up and running by next weekend. In the meantime, we are going to start writing again here.

Meanwhile, we have started a Facebook page for the blog. You can find it here.  Also we have a Twitter account in case you guys didn’t know. We update the Facebook page only about 2-3 times a days so as to not spam people whereas Twitter is updated quite often during the day. Writing only 140 characters does help here. Do follow us on these accounts. (If you guys want to know a lot more about International music and other random funny shit, Twitter is the place). We’ll be using these accounts to put up links to some interesting and/or funny articles, images, videos etc that we come across on these two sites and add a line or two.

 

Signing off for now. Keep reading

A few comic strips – Begin the year with a laugh

1 Jan


Well everyone has had their New Year’s party by now, some of you committed those dreaded drunken mistakes (you know who you are), rest of you stayed sober/ sober enough to witness and laugh at the earlier guy. I am not going to tell you which of those was I (the second one). Year 2011 has been great for me personally when I never thought it would. Plus Tushar came up with the idea of starting this blog, without which I would be wasting away most of time. A couple of newspaper mentions, an article on the Score website, a Tech2 soundbyte and you can see why we are happy with the blog. But most importantly we are happy that a lot of people do take time to read if not the entire articles, but atleast some part of them. Thanks for signing up! We are looking forward to 2012 with some plans on revamping the blog and we are pretty excited about that.

So anyway coming back to the topic. We really tried hard to be funny in our articles. We kept it all subtle. But guess we were the only ones who found it funny. We do like to be funny sometimes  along with helping solve world problems you know. So I thought let’s not “try” to be funny but let the comics take centrestage. Because we all really could do with a few more laughs in our life.

Wishlist: Movies we should be watching

27 Dec


This is not one of those end of the year, best of 2011 lists. No we are not too highbrow about doing that. But that will be covered in a separate article by the prodigal daughter – Anushree Phanse. She did send us some kind of mixed signals that she will be writing this week, so we’ll look forward to that.

In the meantime – This article is about the movies that have created a buzz and have garnered some positive reviews, in the countries where they have released. This is by no means the most comprehensive list you will find out there, so if you think I missed out something, let me know and I will write about it too

DisclaimerThis is not a movie review

Ray-Ban Never Hide Sounds: Gig Report

12 Dec


I am all for paid advertising or partnering with certain websites/blogs to spread the word about your event. But when that particular website writes a totally farcical article, it really disappoints me. Because normally these guys write honest articles and spread the word about Indian Independent Music. But on this occasion, this particular article was nothing but a PR exercise without any truth or credibility. Anyway, this post was not to engage in random article bashing. But to tell how things actually were at the Ray-Ban gig. So for that I need to explain how things were thought to be and how they were in reality.
