He's back!




One more round. Come on...one more round. Adriiiaaaaan....

Rocky Balboa is back. One last time, the final curtain, the epilogue to the greatest movie series of all time. 60 year Rocky Balboa, now owner of an italian restaurant and reduced to entertaining guests with anecdotes of his former glory gets into the ring on last time to take on current world heavyweight champion - Mason 'the line' Dixon. Rocky feels he still has 'stuff' in his 'basement' and when a computer simulation shows the world that the current champ (Mason) would not be able to stand the punching power of the former world champ (Rocky), promoters start throwing together an event that will shake the foundations of boxing.

Yay!

Come December 20th, the world's greatest underdog story becomes the world's longest underdog story with the last chapter happening 30 years after the first Rocky swept the Oscars.

Woo!

Get ready for the battle of the decade as Rocky once again climbs the famed stairs of the Philadelphia Musuem of Art.

This is going to be the best. Check out a dialogue sequence between Rocky and his new 'villian' Mason 'the Line' Dixon.

Mason: "It's over for you."
Rocky: "Nuthin's over 'til it's over"
Mason (laughs): "When's that line from? The Eighties?"
Rocky ((smiles): "Actually, I think that's from the seventies."

:)

AXE out.

Effeth Revival

Bikes,

It has been a long time since some nonsense has been perpetrated, so here goes:

A few days ago, the wife decided to go to the local Indian store and check out what movies were available on DVD. She noticed the world-famous "Kadhal FM", and remembering that Jubbs and Self worked on it, rented the movie. Having seen this excresence once, and knowing that once was enough, I refused to watch the movie. The boss of the household informed me that I had to watch the songs becuase my friends had worked on the movie. So watch the songs we did. And that's when we found the ultimate zinger. IT COMES WITH SUBTITLES!

Reproduced below, for your reading pleasure are the subtitles for the songs "Kadhal FM" and "Un Udalile". Enjoy!

Aadam Eval
This is your 'Love Love' programme
I am waiting for your calls
Lovers may dial 24....
We'll discuss about your romantic experiences
Why about romance?
You may ask
For all lovers....
Shall we listen?

Apple mediated love in Adam-Eve's generation
Dove mediated love in Hyder Ali's generation
Shyness mediated love in grandparents' generation
Letters mediated love in parents' generation
But to mediate love in our generation....
We've 'Love FM'
We've 'Love FM'

It is a good song, whenever I hear this song I become happier
-What song you want?
-You are now listening to...
Love FM, love FM

College romance starts with 'Hi!' and ends with 'Bye!'
If love starts in 'booth' and ends in 'river bank' then it is village romance
If it involves 'scotch' and 'kisses' then it is romance of the rich
If the last seat is seeked then it is romance of the poor
All loving couples are united by...
All loving couples are united by...
Love FM love

Greetings!
Who is the caller?
--I am Sweta from Perambur
-Sweta whom do you love?

If angels come clad in white It's Bharathiraja's style of romance
If visuals dominates dialogues It's Mani Ratnam's style of romance
If it involves graphics It's Shankar's style of romance
If it involves teenage lovers It's Selvaraghavan's style of romance
It is a cocktail of all loving hearts

Love FM love

Un Udalile
Shall I let my soul into your body to seek you?
Allow my youth into your body and come to love
You touched and tortured me vocally
Why do you throw stones on my yearning heart?
You try to pluck my eye flowers
You try to munch me gently

When do you close your eyes my love would knock at your doors
You should open your eyes and give me a love glance
My ten fingers would make a journey on your beautiful body
During the journey, my finger prints would become a rainbow
If your hands plays my tresses like a veena (musical instrument)...
...my tender body would scatter into pieces

Your hot perspirations would flow like holy water in my body
Put out the fire of desire with your kisses
My garments dissolved with the touch of your hands
Your mustache disappeared on drowning in my tresses
You have lit inside the match box
Where have you bundled and thrown your fear and shyness?

Not Rare

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061102/ap_on_re_us/unexpected_birth

"BELLEVUE, Wash. - Amanda Brisendine attributed the 30 pounds she gained in the past year to an abandoned smoking habit and rich food. So when she went to the hospital with sharp stomach pain, she wasn't expecting to leave with a newborn son

"I don't know how I didn't know. I just didn't know," Brisendine said Tuesday from her bed at Overlake Medical Center's Birthing Center, where she delivered Alexander Joseph Britt by Caesarean section.

Doctors agree her case is not rare.

..."

NOT RARE??!!! WTF?!!

I am worried for our species.

Chennai 368


Wednesday, August 16, 2006 (Chennai):

Chennai will soon celebrate its 368th birthday. However, even on the eve of independence, present day Chennai was a cosmopolitan city but with a small town charm.Fort St George in Chennai had remained the capital of the vast area called Madras Presidency, which comprised of parts of Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. In fact, there was such a large number of Telugu speaking people in Chennai that during the reorganisation of states in 1953, the Telugu speaking people wanted Madras as the capital of Andhra Pradesh. "They said the north of Cooum belongs to Andhra. We developed it. Many people in north Madras spoke Telugu. There were Telugu medium schools," said Randor Guy, Writer.

T-nagar is an area where a majority of the Telugu population lived. When India was being divided up, they staked their claim saying "Madras Manade" or Madras is ours.

Then, the Tamils responded by saying "Madras Namade" or it is for them!The leading political party, the Congress, also had a Telugu and Tamil faction just as the Justice Party of Periyar.

Of course, at a conference in Ooty, it was decided that Madras would remain with what was still known as the Madras State. However, August 15 itself was regarded as a black day by the leading social reformer of the time - Periyar. "He did not want independence. He called it a black day, Karuppu naal. He said what is this, we are losing everything! We are going to govern ourselves? We are not capable of it," adds Guy.Years have passed since then and Chennai today stands as a cosmopolitan modern Indian city.

Transliterations!!

NEW DELHI: Many texts are known to change in translation, but the Hindi translators at Indira Gandhi National Open University must take the cake for their 'original' interpretation of the English language — all meant to be part of the course material for students. Sample this: In a preparatory course in economic history, 'Wall Street crash' was translated as 'deewar toot ke sadak pe gir gayee'! This is just one of the numerous 'gems', says Kapil Kumar, chairperson, faculty of history and tourism studies, IGNOU. "In a PG course material, 'Buddhist canon' got translated as 'Baudh dharma ka tope' and 'bridging the gap' was written as 'pul bana diya gaya' in the Hindi course material," he says. "The most shocking was a recent instance where the name of W W Hunter, the famous historian, was translated as W W Shikaari," Kumar says, adding that these mistakes were identified in the process of vetting and weeded out. Clearly, IGNOU faces a huge problem with sub-standard translation, which experts say, is done in a callous word-by-word manner. "Many times, the translation is literal whereas the text demands creativity," says Kumar. IGNOU had to recently withdraw two courses from the PG programme in history which had portions vilifying Hindu gods and goddess in the Hindi translated version. Kumar claims the errors had crept in during translation. "Transcreation of the text, as opposed to literal translation, could have avoided the controversy. The Hindi translation vilifies both Shiva and Kaali," he says.

Hasselhoff Not Drunk

http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=228860&GT1=7703

Publicist: Hasselhoff Was Sick, Not Drunk
Jul 27, 12:45 PM EST
The Associated Press

"LONDON -- A spokesperson for David Hasselhoff denied a report Thursday that the former "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider" star had been turned away from a
British Airways flight because he was drunk.

Judy Katz, the actor's publicist, called the story by the tabloid Sun "totally untrue."Katz said Hasselhoff had not been drinking, but felt unwell after taking some medication for a recent arm injury and wasn't able to get on a flight Wednesday from Heathrow Airport to Los Angeles.

The Sun reported the actor had been told he could not board the flight because he was drunk. Witnesses told the newspaper Hasselhoff appeared to have trouble standing and told staff he was upset about his divorce from Pamela Bach. The divorce was finalized Wednesday in a Los Angeles court. Hasselhoff, 54, was allowed to get on a later flight, the newspaper said.

The airline said only that a male passenger had been refused boarding after he was deemed unfit to travel.

"They gave him some strong antibiotics and he got sick at the airport," Katz said. "He couldn't get on the plane. It was his choice. He got on the later flight."

Last month, the actor sliced four tendons and an artery in a shaving accident at his London hotel.

Earlier this month, there were press reports that an intoxicated Hasselhoff had to be removed from the All England Club, which presents the Wimbledon tennis championships. He denied the claim. "


Shaving accident?! Hmm...

Yogita, Imran and Veena - Trip Unlimited


"It was a joke. The security man did not stop me," said Yogita, air hostess.

I was following this episode closely on NDTV and couldnt stop wondering what a trippy thing these 3 have done and landed in a mess...

But for NDTV they would have gone scot free....but now we know their aunt, uncle and almost everyone in their family by first names and ofcourse the whole world knows that they ve been fired by their employer....Long live NDTV

Inis - Wondering if this influence is because NDTV is the only channel aired in SA!

"Football is a game of glorious uncertainties"

I was just wondering how would it be if Ravi shastri and Siddhu start giving commentary for WC football.....

"Zidane is a tall man"

"That was in the corridor of uncertanity"

"Last thing they need is to concede a penalty now"

"The went like a tracer bullet"

siddhu :

For England - Money is like manure it is not good if you dont spread it

France: Experience is like a comb that life gives you when you are bald

For France against Brazil: When you are dining with the demon you gotta have a long spoon

Beckam: He is like a one legged man in a bum kicking competition

Keep it coming guys

It's that time of the year again...

It's been a year since the last one and as you all know, the last one didn't go that well. But you all are even more aware that I'm a glutton for punishment. So today at noon, I'm beginning the 1800 km drive to Colorado for this year's experiment in self torture: Ride the Rockies 2006.

Last year, I trained poorly and yet completed all but 13 miles of the course. This year, I have trained even less and there are three stages of 80+ miles. I am going to die on the mountain. Please send flowers to my funeral. I prefer white lilies.

Unfortunately for my new bride, she didn't know what she was getting into when she said, "That sounds like fun! I'll do it this year with you." So we bought her a bike and she trained as little as I did. I guess the young only learn by experience.

This year's tour features Clueless Wife, The Old Man, Old Man Winter and yours truly. Clueless Wife is starting to feel jittery about the tour. The Old Man is scoffing at the route because he has trained twice as much as the training schedule calls for. Old Man Winter is grumpy about having to do the tour. I started having minor heart attacks after seeing the elevation profiles. We will be covering 419 miles in 6 days, most of which I intend to be on my back in an ambulance or on a stretcher. Check out the tour route and elevation profiles at

http://www.ridetherockies.com/default.asp?page=route

Wish me luck. I'm going to need a lot of it. This is going to be as hard as Self sticking to a new diet.

Team 3 Rocks Amateur League in Durban


For a long time we thought we were Railways 4 until they announced at the Awards Ceremony that we were Railways 3 and referred to as Team 3!!!

We received a special award for our performance in the league at an awards ceremony held on the 28th of May. We received special mention for being the first overseas team to play in the Durban Amatuer league since its inception. To top it our boys won the awards for Best Batsman and Best Bowler for the season. So now we are sure that non sub continent guys cant play spin at any level.

He rules the city man and whatay loulee city! Full pull - be it Indian restaurant or uShaka marine world - he rocked the show. We did off hajaar things over 4 days of the easter weekend.

Gambling in a casino, drinks at a jazz bar on a wharf overlooking the Durban port, sooper Indian grub at Palki, saying hello to a pride of lions just 2 feet away from our cars, breathtaking drive along the Drakensberg mountain range, full dirt quad-biking at Sani Pass in Underberg, sexy home cooked lunch courtesy Mrs. S, shark diving at uShaka Marine world - in a tank full of ragged tooth sharks (that's our man and his better half up there), snorkeling in a pond filled with over 400 species of fish and one sand shark - one with the fish...one with the fish..., dolphin show, clubbing at Stones, amazing breakfast at Fortunes and Zaks, chill-out on the beach with beer and ice-cream for breakfast.

It was a total rich. All I can say is, Inees for mayor - him da man!

Gems from kirket commentary

Sunil Gavaskar in Sharjah to Charles Colville, "Why do wicket keepers make good lovers?" Colville, "No Idea" Gavaskar, " Because they get up at the slightest opportunity."

Fred Trueman of Bomber Wells, " When he shouts "yes" for a run, it is merely the basis for further negotiations!" ( quoted in Dickie Bird's collection of anecdotes)

Harsha Bhogle on Narendra Hirwani, " If you make a team of all the number eleven batsmen in the world, Hirwani would still bat at number eleven!"

Raman Subba Row drops a catch of Fred Trueman at first slip...
RSS: "Sorry Fred, Should've kept my legs together." Fred: "Not you son, Your mother should've.." ( Quoted in Fred Trueman - by John Arlott and in many other books)

Doug Insole to Tony Lock after being bowled ( Lock had a suspect action) " Am I bowled or run out?" ( Brian Johnston - Rain Stops play)

Gatting to Gower during the 84-85 Eng Vs India series Gatt:" Should I get wider at cover, David?" Chris Cowdrey: "No mate, if you get any wider, you'll burst" (quoted in Gower - An autobiography and in Leading from the Front - by Mike Gatting.)

A Correspondant from the Telegraph on Bob Cunis, the NZ bowler " His bowling, like his name, is neither one thing nor the other." (Forgot the title of the book, but it's written by Henry Blofeld)

John Arlott on a Pakistani bowler...was it Salim Altaf? "His action is like that of Groucho Marx chasing a waitress" (Rain Stops play - Brian Johnston)

"Never again!" ( Sobers to customs offical when asked if "he had anything to declare" after losing the test to England)

Ian Chappell to Dennis Lillee during a World XI - Aus 'test' 1970 "If I wanted off spin, I would have brought on TJ" ( Terry Jenner) The next few balls were decidely faster!

n the second session of play last Sunday of the 3rd test between Australia and the West Indies at the SCG, Australia were going along well at 5/300 odd and David Gower had just moved into the Channel 9 commentary box. He said:"Border and Matthews are each on 69, and that's a pretty comfortable position for them both". Oh dear.

John Arlott was commentating and a batsman was struck "in the groin" on the fifth ball of the over. After a few minutes of rolling on the ground, he gets up and is ready to play. Arlott: And the batsman is ready to face now, one ball remaining...

Why's there no Moon?

In a rather disturbing development, there aint been no moon in Chennai for 10 days now. And its new moon day only today!

How do we know there's no moon? Well, we haven't seen one. Inspite of our best efforts to locate our celestial companion.

What can we do? To ensure that the moon's OK, anybody in any part of the world, who sights the moon in the next day or two (after the new moon day), please report. Then we'll know whether the problem is confined to Chennai or not.

After that what we'll do, I dont know. Hopefully the moon will surface by then.

Wht an apt name!!!

DIC-K to contest all 140 Assembly seats in Kerala

The Karunakaran-led Democratic Indira Congress on Monday ruled out going back to the Congress or fighting the Assembly elections in Kerala on the 'hand' symbol and said the DIC-K would field candidates in all the 140 constituencies....

More at: http://sify.com/news/politics/fullstory.php?id=14166350

It ends with

"When the DIC-K left the Congress 10 months ago, everyone said nothing would happen if Karunakaran left the party," he said.

Stupid yanks

Curtis Gokey isn't the kind of guy to take any guff from anyone — not even himself.
Gokey is suing the city of Lodi, Calif., for damages because a dump truck backed into his car.

The only problem is, Gokey, a Lodi city employee, was the guy driving the dump truck.
Even though he admitted that the fender bender was his fault, Gokey filed a $3,600 claim against the city for damage to his private vehicle, the Associated Press reports.
The city, noting that he was basically suing himself, shot the suit down.
But Gokey, obviously not one to be bothered by semantics, wasn't deterred. He and his wife, Rhonda, filed a new claim under her name — this time for $4,800.
Why the increase in the payout? Car got more valuable? Typo? Hardly.
"I'm not as nice as my husband is," she said.
But city attorney Steve Schwabauer isn't amused.

Man marries Goat

Gross... but it was too funny, I couldn't resist.


"A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his "wife".

Mr Alifi, Hai Malakal in Upper Nile State, told the Juba Post newspaper that he heard a loud noise around midnight on 13 February and immediately rushed outside to find Mr Tombe with his goat.

"When I asked him: 'What are you doing there?', he fell off the back of the goat, so I captured and tied him up".

Village elders ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay dowry for the goat, because he had used it as his wife.

"We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together," Mr Alifi said. "

Been dreaming abt this all my life!!!

OSLO: A woman thought she was in heaven when beer instead of water flowed from the taps in her apartment in west Norway.

"I turned on the tap to clean some knives and forks and beer came out," Haldis Gundersen said from her home in Kristiansund, west Norway. "We thought we were in heaven."

Beer in Norway is among the most expensive in the world with a 0.4 liter (0.7 pint) costing about 50 crowns ($7.48) in a bar.

Gundersen said she tried the beer but that it tasted a bit odd and was not fizzy.

It turned out that a worker in a bar two floors below had mixed up the pipes on Saturday evening, wrongly connecting a new barrel to a water pipe leading to Gundersen's flat. The bar got water in its beer taps.

"life is shabby without you baby, gundello gubba gubba"

I have spotted the song that will, if not surpass at least be a worthy contender to "If you come today (the tick tick tick tick tick tick song)" :)

The title of this song is "life is shabby without you baby, gundello gubba gubba"! It's from the 1986 Telugu movie 'Padamati Sandhya Ragam' and has world-famous drummer Sivamani doing the honours on screen, with SPB as music director and playback singer. Here are some links about the movie/song:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0251919/
http://www.telugucinema.com/c/stars/Jandhyala_Songs.shtml

I haven't been able to get the video although there were a couple of links .rm and BitTorrent files of the whole movie.

Whoever finds the video/audio gets 100/50 Bikang points! Happy Hunting!

Happy New Year, People!
