Phew … Life has been crazy these past few months. Stuff I’m involved in right now :
- A writing blog (the one you are reading right now)
- A photoblog
- A flickr account
- Writing a book
- Developing an app
- Learning the nitty-gritty bits of guitar all of which have left me grasping for time.
(Plus, there’s an Arduino clone on its way :’) Yay !)
I suck at time management. I am probably the world’s #1 procrastinator. I head out to get something done and have this weird thought and then the next thing you know I’m reading random Wikipedia articles and watching YouTube videos, all barely related to the initial thought itself.
(By the way, what’s up with those weird YouTube suggestions? In the suggestions area, there will always be this one weirdly titled video that seems so out of place that you just have to watch it. Before you even know it, you’re watching videos titled “how to quit smoking”. Funny part about this you ask ? I have NEVER touched a cigarette in your life and here I am trying to figure out how to quit)
I hate bollywood movies Youtube. You should understand this because I have never watched a single trailer. Why then do you suggest it to me ? WTF?
Wow ! I just did it again – strayed from the topic. See what I mean about getting distracted? *sigh*
So anyway, I’ve been going through my previous posts on this blog and the horrors I experienced have been unimaginable since. I’ve been cringing for hours now at how immature and stupid lil old me used to be. I ended up deleting more than half of all my old posts. I have decided to start again and use this blog ONLY for writing. I’ve got a ton of ideas for future posts just lying around in the deep dark recesses of my mind.
Until said future posts,
This is the first time that I actually get to use the WordPress app . I’ve had it forever but constant access to a computer rendered it redundant.
So here I am bored to death wondering what to blog about when an idea suddenly pops up.
If you guys haven’t already, you should go check out the japanese rock band FLOW. I was introduced to the band while watching the popular anime series – Naruto. They did three of the many cool theme songs called ‘Sign’, ‘Remember’ and ‘Go’.The track ‘Go’ is also called ‘Fighting Dreamers’ because of its catchy chorus.
These guys are really awesome . People always ask me why I have japanese music on my Ipod . The reason is FLOW.
My favourite album is called “SPLASH!!!”. You guys should definitely check it out . They give relief from todays sometime boring english music. Trust me, you will fall in love with this band .
If you want to read more about them, check out the Wikipedia link below :
Okay …. you guys are gonna think I’m pretty weird after reading this post so ….
I dunno why I wrote this … I just kinda felt inspired to after seeing it rain in the desert (in dubai) … now when I say rain, I mean rain and thunderstorms and stuff… not just a slight drizzle …
Its pretty long so prepare yourself …. hope you guys have an awesome imagination !
Anyways here goes …..
The skies opened up and the heavens cried out,
flashes of natures light streaked across the night sky,
illuminating the world in its wake.
Deep within the bosom of the sky,
a low thunderous boom resounded
heralding the dawn of monsoon.
Men,women and children emerged from their homes,
carrying umbrellas and wearing raincoats,
but not he.
He had on just a shirt and a pant,
nothing else to protect him from the cold.
Out he came and looking up to the clouds,
he held up his hands,
feeling each individual drop of natures tears,
each cold drop tingled his senses,
Each drop left him in awe.
He jumped at the sound of thunder
and held his breath in awe as a bolt raced across the sky.
He shivered as he beheld the power of nature.
His body surged with adrenaline,
reviving him, erasing the monotony of his life.
It grew colder still and the children ran indoors.
But he remained, his arms outstreched towards heaven.
He closed his eyes, feeling the drops of rain on his face,
and made a wish.
Instantly, another bolt raced by.
He opened his eyes and smiled.
He knew his wish would be fulfilled.
Okay guys …. so thats it …. please comment and tell me how you like it … also you may find typos so if you do let me know …. because I was so sleepy that I did not have the strength to check for any…
Until the next post
Hey traceurs [parkour enthusiasts] out there !!
I got some amazing news for ya.
Word has it that there is a new manga series in town called ‘R.u.N‘ based on parkour.
From what I read, I can tell that this one’s gonna be awesome.
The protagonist looks cool and is apparently a French dude.
Hmm … enough spoilers for now.
It’s finally happening isn’t it? Parkour is spreading all over the world my friends …..
A new generation has been born…. The Pk generation !
Here’s the link. What are you waiting for? Go check it out !!
For those of you who don’t know what parkour is, I’m sorry you’ll just have to find out on your own.
Parkour is not limited by a definition. I could tell you what parkour is but to truly understand it you’ll just have to experience it for yourselves.
Parkour is … a way of expressing your feelings, art, imagination, a way to overcome your fears, breaking free, daring to live, doing what people say is impossible, truly living, having fun, overcoming obstacles – both mental and physical ….. and much, much more !!
Sebatian Foucan says that when you view a wall, you try to find a way to overcome the obstacle. When you succeed,you will find that in life nothing can hold you back. In parkour when you are about to try a jump, you hesitate not knowing whether you will succeed or fail. But, when you succeed you instantly overcome your fears and suddenly there is not one force in this universe that can stop you from achieving your dreams.
This to me is the philosophy of parkour.
