Colourful Keyboard DIY



Between my job and my personal life, I spend a lot of time on the computer every day. A LOT. So much that I really need my workspace to be cheerful, fun, and inspiring. A plain old black keyboard like this just doesn’t fit the bill. But what’s a girl to do?


Err… evidently the LOT OF TIME being spent on the computer (between your job and personal life) doesn't involve doing anything of importance or significance. If you were indeed THAT busy (on the computer) doing something of any consequence whatsoever, I doubt you would have found the time to pull out every key and paint each one of them.

Well… I think it's a waste of time and serves absolutely no purpose. On top of that… it looks absolutely horrid. But hey… what do I know.

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

Stupid Tanishq Ad

I really like the female model in this ad. With that out of the way, let's move on.

The ad:

  • Girl's father suggests that she should consider marriage.
  • The girl makes it clear that she is not interested in marriage.
  • Her mother walks into a Tanishq outlet and the girl starts trying on some jewellery. Likes it.
  • A sales rep asks 'So, when is the wedding?' The mother replies 'Oh, wedding jewellery… nah. We are not interested'.
  • In the next frame, it is suggested that the girl is now more open to the idea of marriage.

Here is the problem - The ad suggests that the girl is now interested because she would like to have the fancy jewellery. So… another materialistic woman? Just another gold digger (not necessarily in the conventional sense of the term, but still).

As if this wasn't enough… the mother then sends a text to her husband saying 'Even after 25 years of marriage, you are clueless about women' - suggesting that a woman has absolutely no self control or priorities and will easily change her mind if successfully enticed with shiny glittery jewellery.

Modi / BJP Wave?

It isn't that difficult a question to answer.

Isn't so much as a Modi OR BJP wave but more of an anti-Congress wave. It is evident even from the speeches and rallies. In the rallies and/or speeches, BJP candidates are speaking more about what's wrong with Congress and not nearly as much as what their own plans are.

When it comes to their own plans, all they have to say is pretty much 'We will fix it'. When it comes to HOW they propose to fix things… there really isn't much of a difference between what the different parties/candidates are mouthing (only a few real differences. Most are simply superficial).

Most speeches (if not all) are clearly dominated by what the Congress has done wrong and where all they have fucked up.

The people too are simply fed up with the present state of affairs and will happily lap up just about ANY alternative. It really wouldn't matter if BJP's PM candidate was Modi or someone else. As long as similar PR strategies were applied, the generated frenzy would be just about the same.

I must say… I would love to see a Congress led coalition win the 2014 General Elections. For no other reason but simply to see the shamed faces of the idiotic expert Pundits featuring day in and day out on the news channels.
