bullhorn-moment

 bonus package

...

Being in the investment business, one of the thing that annoys me the most is when people - who have absolutely no clue about investments, insist on talking about investments, markets and the economy.

I do admit, at times it's hilarious listening to their 'EXPLANATIONS' and 'THEORIES'. Good time pass. But there are times when it's just down right annoying.

Partly my fault too. I have a major flaw. I have absolutely no patience with stupid people. I know that everyone has the right to be stupid, but some people just abuse the privilege. 

Ahh well shit happens. The good thing about the tele is that there is a mute button and an off switch, that you can use. Wish there was something like this for people too.

Restraint

New Picture (1)

I am 49 minutes into the movie, and I still don't seem to be interested. Could be because of Travis Fimmel's character. I find him extremely irritating. I usually like the mean and rude characters, but this one.. just irritating.

Teresa Palmer - not my idea of eye candy. Could be the hair colour. She looks more of a white trash, but that's just how she looks. Thankfully - for her - the character she is playing is pretty much white trash too.

The movie seems to have received some pretty positive reviews from a lot of viewers (I don't know if they watched the same movie that I am watching right now. I just can't seem to even get interested, let alone like it).

Phone Numbers, Now 8 Digits - Kuwait

Well, officially the seven digit numbers should stop functioning from October 17th onwards. Wataniya and Zain have done the update, and as of now, both 7 and the new 8 digit numbers are working. The Landlines also seem to be working with both the formats.

Time to update your phonebooks.

Easier way:

Zain subscribers send B to 99509 (Link)
Wataniya subscribers send Backup to 1618.

A small program seems to be able to handle the conversion easily enough and you can download it from here (Ctsy: Q8Ba7th)

Alternatively you could do it manually on the phone, or update the contacts in outlook and then sync it back to the phone.

Gair Kya Jaaniye Kyon Mujhko Buraa Kahte Hain

Firaq Gorakhpuri ...

Gair kya jaaniye kyon mujhko buraa kahte hain
aap kahte hain jo aisaa to bajaa kahte hain

vaaqai tere is andaaz ko kya kahte hain
na vafaa kahte hain jiss ko na jafaa kahte hain

ho jinhen shaq vo karen aur khudaaon ki talaash
hum to insaan ko duniya ka khudaa kahte hain

teri suurat nazar aai teri suurat se alag
husn ko ahal-e-nazar husn-numaa kahte hain

shikavaa-e-hijr karen kis dil se
hum khud apne ko bhi apne se judaa kahte hain

teri rudaad-e-sitam ka hai bayaan naa-mumkin
faayda kya hai magar yuun zaraa kahte hain

log jo kuch bhi kahen teri sitam-koshi ko
hum to in baaton ko achhaa na buraa kahte hain

auron ka tajurba jo kuch ho magar hum to "firaq"
talkhi-e-zist ko jine ka mazaa kahte hain

Xperia X1 - A Much Better Video

Google Chrome To Get Plugins

Both add-ons and user scripts (a la Greasemonkey) will be supported in the near future. Currently, they're working on ensuring that plugins and add-ons keep the browser as stable as it is without them, but as soon as they get that worked out, look for them to come to Chrome, probably by the time it's out of beta.

...

Sometimes, one just wakes up in the morning and KNOWS that today is going to be a bad day. Something like 'I sense a great disturbance in the force'

I have that feeling today. The day has just started and it's fucked up already. Guess it's the negative thinking or whatever those self-help books call it - but either ways, doesn't change the fact that it's a fucked up day.

Xperia Webcast

This guy talking about the Xperia.. well, I don't know - I couldn't even sit through the whole thing. I was bored in about the first 5-10 minutes of the video and I put it off. Either it's him making the phone sound boring, or perhaps this phone isn't really what I was expecting it to be. Just.. not happening for me. Hopefully there will be better videos.

Aap ye bataayie - aap to khafaa nahin

kashtiyaan nahin to kya - hausale to paas hain
kah do naakhudaaon se - tum koi khudaa nahin

leejiye bulaa liya - aap ko khayaalon mein
ab to dekhiye humen koi dekhta nahin

aaiye chiraag-e-dil - aaj hi jalaayen hum
kaisi kal havaa chale - koi jaanataa nahin

X Files - I Want To Believe

Disappointed.

Perhaps it would make a good episode for the series, but as a movie.. err.. not happening.

Having Xzibit in the movie just ruined it even more for me. I just don't get him. Never have, never will. Neither do I want to. I find him over-rated and extremely annoying.

Teri Duniya Se Door

lyrics: Prem Dhavan
Voice - Rafi sahib...

 

teri duniya se duur - chale hoke majboor
humen yaad rakhna
jaao kahin bhi sanam - tumhein itni qasam
humen yaad rakhnaa

aayengi bahaaren, to tere hi fasaane, sunayengi humen
hogi tanhaai, to aake teri yaaden, rulaayengi humen
rulaayengi humen - tadpaaengi humen
kabhi dekhi thi bahaar, kabhi hum se tha pyaar
zaraa yaad rakhna

le jaa jaane-vaale, duaaen mere dil ki, kissi se kya gila
teri hi khataa hai, naa meri hi khataa hai, jo hona thaa hua
jo hona tha hua - hai kisi se kya gila
dekho roye mera pyar, kahe dil ki pukaar
humen yaad rakhna

Ek Bekasi Hai Hijr Ke Maaron Ke Saath Saath

Yahya Jasdanwalla...

ek bekasi hai hijr ke maaron ke saath saath
tuutaa hai mera dil bhi sahaaron ke saath saath

jee bhar ke dekhne bhi na paaye the chhup gaye
armaan bhi hain udaas nazaaron ke saath saath

dil mein vafuur-e-shauq ka tuufaan liye hue
khaamosh jaagta hoon sitaaron ke saath saath

itni to mahviyat ho tasavvur mein tere dost
khud ko bhi bhuul jaauun nazaaron ke saath saath

"yahya" ye aag ishq ki phir bhi na bujh saki
hai dil mein ashk-e-gham bhi sharaaron ke saath saath

The Happening

That's it. No more Shyamalan movies. Every new release of his is more pointless and absurd than the previous one.

Bushism

And so the fact that they purchased the machine meant somebody had to make the machine. And when somebody makes a machine, it means there's jobs at the machine-making place.

Deception

deception_galleryposter

To start off, I usually look forward to watching a Hugh Jackman movie. I was looking forward to watching this one too.

Well, it does live up to it's name. Deceptive. I am a bit disappointed. The movie, in my opinion - just isn't paced right. There are some good moments, just that, there should have been more. The 'mystery' really isn't that hard to work out on your own (which is the least of the problems).

The whole thing just seems to fall apart as the movie progresses, and it's just sad to see actors like Jackman and McGregor carrying on, just for the sake of ending the movie. Just got too Bollywood-ish

BTW Anyone who thinks the plot is UNPREDICTABLE - obviously hasn't read enough books or watched nearly enough movies.

It's watchable. Just not as enjoyable as I would have liked it to be.

Cigarettes And Alcohol - Oasis

Is it my imagination - or have I finally found something worth living for?
I was looking for some action - but all I found was cigarettes and alcohol
you could wait for a lifetime - to spend your days in the sunshine
you might as well do the white line - because when it comes on top

you got to make it happen

is it worth the aggravation - to find yourself a job when there's nothing worth working for?
it's a crazy situation - but all I need are cigarettes and alcohol!
you could wait for a lifetime - to spend your days in the sunshine
you might as well do the white line - cos when it comes on top

you got to make it happen!

For some reason, not really excited about this, as much as I usually am. Guess it's because season 3 was a drag.
