Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Much better than the previous one.

Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) – Excellent!

Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) – Impressive (except for the final chit chat sequence which was boring).

Steve Rogers / Captain America (Chris Evans) – Way too Goody-Two-Shoes / Holier than thou. Don't like him. Talks too much and talks shit (am I the only one who finds him a bit retarded/stupid?). It would help if he would loosen up a bit.

In my opinion, this film would have been even better if we could take out Steve Rogers completely from the plot. Falcon and Black Widow would be cool enough along with the Winter Soldier.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

amazing-spider-man-2-poster

Way too long…

Scanned through most of the yappy sequences. Really didn't see the point. Special effects were cool, but that was about it. Ohh and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) – NICE!

That was about it for me.

I get extremely frustrated and disappointed when anyone or anything comes in the way of the total annihilation of the human species. It's just so pissing off.

The soundtrack is brilliant. Especially this:

Californication – Season 5

This one was… watchable. Hope the next season is better.

Hank Moody (David Duchovny) – Cool guy. Means well. Misunderstood.

Richard Bates (Jason Beghe) – Excellent!

Tyler (Scott Michael Foster) – Irritating piece of shit. Shave… get a haircut… better yet, just die. Hopefully won't be seeing more of him for the rest of the series.

Samurai Apocalypse (RZA) – Arguably the shittiest onscreen nigger 'gangsta' ever. Squint eyed, lame. 0 personality. No wit, verve, charm or humour. No screen presence. Crap.

Karen (Natascha McElhone) – She is ok. Liking her a bit more with every season. Sweet.

Kali (Meagan Good) – Easily ignored. Good enough to look at, but hardly worth the trouble.

Carrie (Natalie Zea) – Stupid psycho bitch. Definitely worth looking at. Hated the character from the entry scene itself. Not annoying but just stupid (guessing that's what the makers were going for).

Marcy Runkle (Pamela Adlon) – Kill her off. Aarrgggh… Super annoying cunt (pretty sure that was NOT what the makers were going for). Shitty mother. Shitty wife. She is just shit. Hate everything about her. Character… voice… face… hair… everything.

Becca Moody (Madeleine Martin) – Turning out to be an increasingly difficult bratty bitch to tolerate. Hope the character gets better.

Californication – Season 4

 

Episode 4 – Monkey Business - Zig Semetauer (Fisher Stevens) – Seriously… what was the point here? It wasn't funny. It wasn't cool. It added nothing to the plot. Waste… lame… disappointing.

The rest of the season was rather good.

Sasha Bingham (Addison Timlin) – Looks so much better with dark hair (the pic on her IMDB profile should be replaced). Brilliant casting. Not too much. Not too little. Just enough.

Karen (Natascha McElhone) – Almost went overboard in this season. At times it feels like she is just looking for an excuse to get mad. Not that there aren't sufficient reasons for her to get mad… but it's just… there is an inconsistency. She lets a lot of things slide, and then makes a huge issue over something that she should be reasonable about.

Marcy Runkle (Pamela Adlon) – Annoying as always. Cunt.

Abby Rhodes (Carla Gugino) – They should've used someone better looking.

Californication – Season 3

californication-season-3-sezonul-3-poster

I should have watched this earlier. It's a pretty good show. Intelligent, witty, eye-tonic… what's not to like!?

Felicia Koons (Embeth Davidtz)– Amazing! Now that's how the English language is meant to be spoken.

Karen (Natascha McElhone) – Finally starts making sense (to me, at least). Nice smile.

Hank Moody (David Duchovny) – I actually understand this character.

Marcy Runkle (Pamela Adlon) – Shut up! Crazy annoying cunt.

End of Season 3 got me really interested. Looking forward to Season 4. Want to see how the plot plays out… also looking forward to Addison Timlin.

[Non]Sense – Sleep Gadget / App

Link

Fucking twat!

"

With Sense's Smart Alarm, it can even wake you up in the morning at the right point in your sleep cycle, to avoid that groggy feeling we all hate so much. All easily available via our iPhone and Android applications.

If this app will delay when the alarm goes off - We set up an alarm to wake up at the time we need to! Sleep cycle ki maa ki choot. Office kya tera baap jaayega?

If this app / gadget will make the alarm go off before the set time – Abbey chutiye, if my sleep cycle has been disturbed (for whatever reason), then I would be awake anyway… right?


"

The app tells you how well you slept, or didn't, by giving you a unique Sleep Score each night.

Seriously… what sort of sad retarded prick you would be to require an app to determine if you had a good sleep or not? Most of us (reasonably intelligent life forms) do have the capability of being able to tell for ourselves if we slept well or not. We definitely have more important things to do with our lives than tweet and facebook our sleep scores.


"

You can play back key sound disturbances via the app to say “Ah, the garbage truck broke my sleep cycle at 3am. I didn’t even realize that.”

You are awake! What fucking difference does it make if it was the garbage truck or your snoring spouse? There is nothing this gadget/app or you can do about it now! What are you going to do next? Sue the garbage truck driver? Leave your spouse? Strangle her in her sleep (we can talk about this… at length, if you want to)?


"

Because millions think they're getting better sleep than they really are.

And why is that not good enough? What's supposed to matter is how one feels, right? If a placebo effect or just thinking that you have slept well works for someone, then why ruin it?!

'Proud' Indians… Where Are You Today?

"

An Indian-American CEO of two publicly-traded companies has been convicted on charges of paying kickbacks in return for purchases of his companies stock.
Shailesh Shah, 48, of California pleaded guilty before US District Judge Richard Stearns to two counts of mail fraud and two counts of wire fraud…

Link

Remember the 'Proud Indians' who spam the media (and social networks) when some PIO gets appointed CEO or CFO of a foreign company or gets elected governor to a US state or gets a job in the Whitehouse?

The one's who shamelessly try to become a part of THAT person's INDIVIDUAL achievement by coming up with crap like 'He is from MY country. He went to MY college/uni. He did the same course/major that I have picked'?

Yes… THOSE 'Proud Indians' - Where are you now? It is only fair that you now feel collectively ashamed. Doesn't anyone want to speak to Shailesh Shah's family or teachers or friends? No trending topic on Twitter from the current batch of students studying in the uni / school that Shailesh Shah went to? No 'Ashamed To Be Indian' hash-tag?

Kyon bhai? kya hua?

Thuu. Neech zaat. Chotte log, chotti soch.

Need For Speed

need_for_speed_xlg 

The cars were… fucking amazing. Loved the cars. All of them!

Acting / plot - Far from tolerable. Some of the lines were utter rubbish. Here are a few:

Dino Brewster – Let's see what Ingram thinks.
Julia Maddon – I am what Ingram thinks and he thinks two at the most. (Huh? You are a THOUGHT?! Well in that case, Ingram needs to put in a lot more effort into his thought process, because you make no sense).

Julia Maddon – But driving like a complete maniac in order to scare me out of the car is not going to work.
Tobey Marshal – You sure about that?
Julia Maddon – Is that what you think? (Here are some sensible response options to that question – 'Yes/No/Are you?/Fuck off'. 'Is that what you think' is just another badly written line).

Julia Maddon – Whatever you think about me… I am sure it's wrong. (And ANOTHER senseless line).


Aaron Paul - Good enough voice/tone for the role, but… the walk/look/expressions… body language in general was way off the mark.

Imogen Poots - Thu. The accent is obviously British, but it's far from a posh British accent (which should have been a prerequisite for this character). Scary smile (if you can call it that) and whoever picked the shades for her has absolutely no sense of style. I mean… take a look at this:

That's a great pair of shades that looks absolutely horrid on that face!

The 'article' doesn't even mention Sonam Kapoor - So why put up that ridiculous headline and her picture?!!!?


The only way THAT ugly-laughing-big-jawed daft cunt chimp hyena thing could steal the show would be if all the others who walked the ramp were crippled midgets (my view).

Here is a clip from the show. I couldn't spot any crippled midget(s) but you can see Sonam being her usual buffoon-self. Smiling/laughing (or whatever the right word is for that horrid expression) like a retard.

Thankfully the clip starts with Bipasha Basu… so it isn't a complete waste of time.

It’s all fun and games until someone loses a game. (Or so they say) Show your fallen enemies, not everything need be taken seriously.

This pack contains Fart, Planking and Comedy spotlight moves.

And this will cost you USD 1.99.

Here is a tip for Sony (Free) - It's really ok - NOT to come up with anything at all, if the alternative means coming up with pointless, senseless, tasteless trash.

Skirts And Dhotis

For a huge country (with some very serious issues), it is sad to see people wasting time on crap talk about dhotis and skirts. Surely… there MUST BE something of reasonable significance for the people/politicians/media to discuss.

Psst - There is a lot more to 'culture' and 'sanskaar' than the bloody clothes you put on (or don't put on, for that matter). Dikhaawon pe mat jaao… apni akal ladaao.

NCP 'Supporters' Demand Action

"

Lunch was partaken of without incident; the trouble began when Mr Pawar asked what was for dessert. Embarrassed housekeeping staff at the guest house said there was none. Mr Pawar left without a fuss, but his supporters complained to the District Collector's office and insisted that it shoot off show-cause notices to the two engineers for the "lapse."

The NCP supporters are so incensed at their leader not getting a sweet treat, that they have also demanded the suspension of the housekeeping staff.

Link

Assumptions:

  • Someone does get offended for something this trivial.
  • Someone insists that the matter needs to be handled as the treatment was unacceptable (ego, pride, spoilt… whatever).

Facts:

  • If it was a matter of ego / arrogance - The 'supporters' would have yelled or manhandled the housekeeping staff almost immediately. They wouldn't insist on complaining to the District Collector and then demanding a notice for the engineers. That's not even a show of power. That's simply settling a score.
  • Even if the District Collector was approached (for whatever reason), there is NO WAY anyone - with a working brain, would demand a Show-Cause notice or anything in writing. It would be a phone call or a quick meeting with some yelling and that would be the end of it.
  • It is inconceivable that any sensible 'supporter' would want to have this incident (and over the top reaction) documented in any format.

Possibilities:

  • 'Supporters' mentioned in the article are retards (not just spoilt). Wouldn't be THAT far fetched an argument but there is another possibility to consider.
  • 'Supporters' mentioned in the article are simply serving / supporting the interests of the rival party/parties (intentionally). Seems to be just as plausible (if not more).

Na Hua Ke Mar Miten Hum, Na Hua Ke Jee Uthen Hum

Faiz…

Yeh jafaa-e-gham ka chaara, woh najat-e-dil ka aalam
Tera husn dast-e-eesa, teri yaad roo-e-mariyam

Dil-o-jaan fidaai rahe, kabhi aa ke dekh humdum
Sar-e-koo-e-dil figaran, shab-e-aarzoo ka aalam

Teri deed se siwa hai, tere shouq mein baharan
Woh chaman jahangiri hai, tere gaysuu'on ki shabnam

Lo suni gayi humari, yun phire hain din ke phir se
Wohi gosha-e-qafas hai, wohi fasl-e-gul ka matam

Yeh ajab qayamatein hain, teri rahguzar mein guzran
Na hua ke mar miten hum, na hua ke jee uthen hum

Ved Pratap Nautanki Continues

"

The government on Tuesday condemned journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik's meeting with LeT chief and Mumbai attacks accused Hafiz Saeed following uproar in Parliament which saw opposition MPs cornering the government over what has exploded into a full-blown political firestorm.

Link

  • It was bad enough with the opposition barking on about this issue. Hardly merits the kind of attention but every opposition party does this (at least in India). Har baat ka issue banaana hai.
  • Then, it got exceedingly annoying with the news channels picking it up and having their panel debates (aarrghh).
  • Now, the government CONDEMNS the meeting.

(*Yawns)

It's not like an intelligence officer or a senior government official or politician has been caught making some sort of a deal with the LeT. It's not as if some ISRO/DRDO employee is sharing secret/confidential information. It is a journalist (who wasn't nearly half as prominent/popular/known until this shit hit the cables) chit chatting with a wanted man.

Arrey bhai - IF you DO want to make an issue, then make an issue about Vaidik's interview to Dawn News. At least there you might have points like 'why did he say this, why did he say that, body language, choice of the kurta' (*rolls eyes). Why would you want to make an issue about him meeting Hafeez Saeed? I mean, what's the big fucking deal?

Journalists have met with Veerappan, Osama Bin Laden. News anchors / reporters have aired (more than once) their conversations with underworld figures like Chotta Rajan / Chotta Shakeel etc (or at least people claiming to be these individuals). All of them are/were wanted men. I don't see what is wrong if yet another journalist had a chit chat with yet another wanted man?

Faiz...

Dil mein ab yuun tere bhoole hue gham aate hain
Jaise bichchade hue kaabe mein sanam aate hain

Ek-ek karke hue jaate hain taare roshan
Meri manzil ki taraf unke kadam aate hain

Raqs-e-mai tez karo, saaz ki lai tez karo
Soo-e-maikhaana safiran-e-haram aate hain

Kuchch hum hi ko nahin ehsaan uthaane ka dimaag
Woh to jab aate hain mail-ba-karam aate hain

Aur kuchch der na guzre shab-e-furkat se kaho
Dil bhi kam dukhta hai, woh yaad bhi kam aate hain

Malala To Meet Goodluck Jonathan

"

Pakistani rights activist Malala Yousafzai is due to meet Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan to press for more action to free the more than 200 girls held by militant Islamists.

Link

Ek aur aa gayi footage khaane ke liye.

The government doesn't care about the girls - fine. Fair enough assumption. Most governments (not all) couldn't care less about their respective citizens.

The Nigerian government is being pressured by the parents of those missing girls. It is being pressured by international governments. It is being pressured by the national and international media. It is being pressured by… just about any organisation you could think of. AND for some reason Malala believes that it is HER intervention that will lead to more action. Yes. Sure. Why not? This is what Goodluck Jonathan had been waiting for. A request / visit from Malala. NOW he will take action (*rolls eyes).

Sigh…

Nautanki

"

A recent meeting in Pakistan between 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and a journalist considered close to yoga teacher Ramdev led to a row in Parliament today.

Link

  • Why is this the opposition's concern?
  • Why is this even a parliamentary matter?
  • How the hell does it matter who this journalist is close to? He might be close to Ramdev, He might also have a very close/cordial relationship with his nephew / neighbour / banker / barber / maid / grocer / watchman… Do we need to mention those as well?!

Is there really any need to make noise about this? He is a journalist (Freelance or not). The guy had a meeting and that's that. Hardly merits a discussion or a row in the Parliament.

BTW, all that bull about 'I wanted to prove him wrong and influence his thinking' - Bakwaas mat karo. It's as simple as - An opportunity presented itself, and Ved Pratap took it. No one is going to buy the crap about 'wanting to influence his thinking'. Ye bhi saala faaltu mein footage khaa raha hai.

More Nonsense Over The Statue

"

The government on Friday said it was "proud" of contributing towards building a statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, whose legacy future generations should know about.

Link

Err.. How much could they get to know by looking at a statue?! You want the future generations to KNOW about Patel's legacy?! - Dedicate a wing in the library/libraries to books on Sardar Patel. Hell, make an entire library housing books on Sardar Patel. Include more chapters in course books relating to Sardar Patel. Wouldn't that make more sense than building a giant statue?

If ever the population of that shit country is in a reasonably good condition (consider the factors including but not limited to the social/healthcare/economic/infrastructural health) then you can erect your statues.

Seriously - You allocate INR 150 Crores to Women Safety while giving away INR 200 Crores to a bloody statue? What is the message here?


Cunt of the century - Ravi Shankar Prasad barks:

"

More than Rs 4000 to 5000 crore has been spent on the statue with contributions from different quarters. The Sardar Patel legacy has to be told to future generations. Should statues only be restricted to Nehru (Jawaharlal) and Indira Gandhi ... We are very proud of building a statute of Sardar Patel,"

Screenshot:

 

Not sure if this is a typo or Ravi Shankar Prasad is being his usual idiotic self. The thing is - It has been published time and again that the bloody Statue of Unity will cost INR 2,000 to 2,500 Crores (INR 20-25 Billion) [Wiki Link, TOI Link, NDTV Link]. So how come Ravi Shankar Duffer Chutiya Prasad claims having already collected and spent INR 4,000 to 5,000 Crores (INR 40-50 Billion)?!?!

It could be a typo but it shouldn't come as a surprise if Ravi Shankar got it wrong (He usually gets most of his facts wrong).

Dikhaawon pe mat jaao. Apni akal ladaao.

There should be a rule / law - Anyone suggesting building of a statue will first have to have a scale-model of said statue shoved up his/her ass. At least that would (hopefully) put some check on the ridiculous demands for more statues.

INR 25 Billion For a Statue…

"

The statue, which the Gujarat government claims will be the world's tallest, is expected to cost Rs. 2,500 crores and was to have been financed by the state and public donations. Led by Mr Modi as Chief Minister, the state government last year launched a drive to collect donations of cash and iron from farmers and others across the country.
With the project featuring prominently in Mr Jaitley's budget announcements, it will receive central funds for the first time.

Link

There HAS TO BE a better way to spend all that money!

There were going to be donations and all that crap. Now in addition to that, 'Achche Din Ka Budget' allocates INR 2 Billion for the statue.. kyon bhai?

Jaitley himself had harped on about how this budget 'would be a departure from the mere populism and wasteful expenditure that has dragged down Asia's third-largest economy' [Link]. What does he call spending INR 2 billion on a statue? Gainful expense?

Hangover – Kick

In case the title of the track wasn't warning enough… it was highlighted that Salman is the singer.

It does make one curious, so I did listen to it… and when it started of – I was pleasantly surprised. This wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting it to be. Hell, this was actually very nice. Melodious, hummable even.

And then just a bit over a minute into the song came the 'chorus' (if you can call it that) - Haaangover… teri yaadon ka. Saala, achche khaase gaane ki maa chod daali! Thankfully Shreya takes over after that.

The track isn't too bad. Just that without that whiny bit in between, this could have been pretty neat (my view).

That said, it's a MILLION times better (at least a million times) than Anu Malik's latest attempt at torture singing:

I seriously don't know/can't understand why Anu Malik is allowed to sing? Isn't there some sort of law against noise pollution or disturbing/disrupting public peace or …

Sigh… Hota hai, Chalta hai… Duniya hai.

300 : Rise Of An Empire

Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) charging with a sword – Sad… pathetic… not a pretty sight.

Artemisia (Eva Green) charging OR just sitting and giving orders OR mincing away with her sword – Ufff zaalim!

The film does start off rather well. Seemed promising. But then, it goes downhill trying to live up to the hype OR perhaps to match the GLORIOUS 300.

This lacked the wit. I still chuckle every time I watch Leonidas say 'Besides, there is no reason we can't be civil'. There were lines like – 'Pray, they are that stupid. Pray, we are that lucky' OR 'We will blot out the sun'. That was some pretty cool writing. Good stuff. Witty.

What do we get in this crappy script… It's laughable:

- 'Why didn't you just say that to begin with'
- 'Do not forget who put the crown on your childish head.. my king'
- 'You fight much harder than you fuck'

The horse on the boat thing - It wasn't like "Wow… look at that". It was more like "WTF! That's just stupid".

Disappointed.

Life Strategies - Philip C. McGraw

The book does not deserve a place on ANY book shelf. This is fit for the trash can.

The beginning seems like an ode to Oprah. When you are reading references to Oprah even on Page 54… you just want to throw the damn thing. The rest of the book is just a yap session on how everything is in your hands and why you need to change and bla bla.

In terms of information - there is nothing 'new' that this book has to offer. Basic rehash of what should be termed as common sense. The book proves to be irritating / annoying not because of the 'Life Laws' (*rolls eyes) but because of the idiotic way Dr. Phil has chosen to write it. 'Like it or not'… 'I promise you'…'I am telling you'… 'Oprah this Oprah that'… 'Have a conversation with yourself'… 'Ask yourself'… 'Tell yourself'… 'Resolve now'… and it goes on and on.

Stupid book. Waste of time. Don't bother.
