Jakes' Cake

In which Jake learnt that most valuable of lessons in life...
you can't have your cake and eat it too!

DYK: This idiom was first recorded in the English language in 1546 as "wolde you bothe eate your cake, and have your cake?" (John Heywood's 'A dialogue Conteinyng the Nomber in Effect of All the Prouerbes in the Englishe Tongue') alluding to the impossibility of eating your cake and still having it afterwards; the modern version being a corruption, first signalled in 1812.

Calling all Bikes!

Fellow Bikes of America,

It is time for the All-America-Asalasaw! Let us put our heads and our bottles of Old Monk together for a grand gala celebration of Bike-dom / Bikangery / Bike-ness.

I would like to propose an All-America-Asalasaw to welcome new candidates such as Jake and Ling to the US of A. Let's give it a bang in the industry...

I think middle of August to the end of August is an appropriate time-frame. Think up locations, bikes!

If mid-west is a scene, I can host. If DC area is a scene, I'm in. If the Dees even exist, I'll be thrilled.

Speaking of incentives, asalasaw and Old Monk, I have one bottle and access to a rather large supply... Speak up, speak out and drink up! Where will it be?

Prince Harry has joined the Gurkhas!

Go ahead - make a joke about Camilla looking like a horse in front of him now....

Why The Boss Rocks

Thalaivar Super Star, ofcourse, is THE reason. Vivek gives a helping hand. Despite Shankar doing his best to be himself.

But it is time to sing praises of the unsung heroes. One clap to:

1. Make up artist, Banu and Hairstylist, Sandrine Verrier Seth, who brought back Rajni of the 80’s and Rajni in avtars that never existed before.

2. Costume Designer, Manish Malhotra, who seems to have finally found his calling in dressing up the Man himself after wasting away with those Bollywood types.

3. Sets, Thotta Tharani, for the glass pianos and what ever else... who'd 've thunk?!

4. Sujatha for lines like “Panninga thaan koottama varum. Singam single-a thaan varum” and for providing Vivek with his ammunition.

5. Indian Arts (graphics guys for white skin, HLL watch out!), for making possibly the most expensive comedy sequence in Tamil cinema, happen. And most importantly, for piecing together those hearts that shattered on seeing Thalaivar with blonde hair in the promo posters, by putting things in perspective.

6. And last but not the least... the perfectly proportioned Shreya, who nearly ooommphed into my exclusive list of "Women I'd swing for". I'm told we owe our thanks to VKK. Thanks Monet! Dil based.

Evil Wife does well!


For some time now, Evil Wife has been aware of the fact that I identify myself as one of the crazy people who enjoy the music of Bela Fleck & The Flecktones. Just around the time I was working my ass off in NYC, Evil Wife discovered that Bela Fleck was playing in Ann Arbor with Chick Corea. Good news for her, of course, but not for me. And so she turned it into good news for me - she hung around after the concert and waited for Bela Fleck to make an appearance. At that most opportune moment, she presented to him my guitar (that she had been hanging on to throughout the performance) and got him to autograph it.

And then she mailed me a picture. Behold its infinite beauty:

Our good friends from Africa

The gent on top is the one and only Mangosuthu Buthelezi. Right below, is his fellow in the cause, Ngconde Balfour.
From all appearances, the names are appropriate...

Mangosuthu appears in the news

Now if his colleague N'Kundi shows up, it will be perfect! Direct quotes after the link...


Some black Durbanites, meanwhile, were indignant over a proposal to rename the Mangosuthu Highway, a major artery that now honors Mangosuthu Buthelezi, a veteran Zulu politician. They were equally angered by a second proposal to rename Princess Magogo Stadium, an arena that currently honors Mr. Buthelezi's mother, a Zulu cultural icon.

Coincidentally or otherwise, Mr. Buthelezi heads the Inkatha Freedom Party, the principal rival to the African National Congress in KwaZulu-Natal Province, which includes Durban.

"Why are they undoing a street that has been named after Mangosuthu Buthelezi?" asked the Rev. Muso Zondi, a spokesman for the Inkatha Freedom Party. "Are they suggesting that his is an offensive apartheid name?"

Indian on American Idol

Those of you who've been missing out on this season of American Idol must watch the next few episodes, just for Sanjaya Malakar. He is Indian, CANT SING and has made it to the last nine only because he has hair that'd give Dimple Kapadia a complex. Whether it is the massive asian community, thought impaired american teenagers or the telephone voting company handling the voting for Fox (incidentally, owned by Sanjaya's father) that's keeping him in the competition, we gotta watch out for dear Sanjaya. We are, after all, talking of an entertainment economy that made Paris Hilton who she is... famous for being famous...

And if any of you guys in the US have been slyly voting for this... person... confess!

Meet Sanjaya Malakar

Going to the Windies

hello one and all........heres a world cup song for all you cricket fans.......hopefully you'll all be singing this by the time the 28th of april comes around and we bring the cup home......since its a drinking song as well as a drunken song it'll will be best appreciated a few rums down.....we'll all be needing plenty of that over the next month and a half anyway.........so people sing it aloud, teach it to your friends, send it to your friends and of course,get a bit more plastered.....also thought it would be nice if you guys shoot some videos of drunken fans tripping on the game (and of course the song)......would be ideal when groups of you get together and watch a game.......send me the footage and hopefully we'll have a decent amount of footage to edit a nice video.........you can pass on this info to all the other people you may pass this onto......the more the merrier........
Here are the lyrics(written by anand) in case you cant figure out some of the words(its a drunken song...remember!)
anyway thats that for now......cheers and enjoy the cricket....may the best team win(and that reads India)!!

Heres the song.......www.musicfromtheplace.com/going to the windies.mp3


We're here to play some cricket,
tell our opponents to stick it,
so you'd better buy some tickets
because this is where you want to be.

We're praying and we're hoping.
With injuries we're coping.
We strongly deny doping.
Because this is where we want to be.

We're playing for our nations.
For our reputations.
Considering amputations.
There's no place that we'd rather be.

We're going to the windies. We're going to the windies.
Now that we're in it, we may as well try to win it.

We're going to the windies. The beautiful west Indies.
There'll be winnin and a losin. Dancin' and a boozin.

We want to be victorious
But uncertainty's glorious.
We're true-blue cricket warriors
Where else could we want to be?

We'll inspect the pitches
and the trini posse bitches
We'll hope for close finishes
This will be the place to be.

We're here to bowl our Jaffas.
Hit the ball into the rafters.
Fill the ICC's old coffers.
It's where everyone is going to be

We're going to the windies. We're going to the windies.
Now that we're in it, we may as well try to win it.

We're going to the windies. The beautiful west Indies.
There'll be winnin and a losin. Dancin' and a boozin.

The Matriarch does us proud


Recently, The Evil Matriarch spotted various luminaries such as David, HS Plaha and others at some airport or the other. First thought? "Photo! Photo! Photo!"

Why this tragic loss of communication?

Now that the gang of bikes has returned from Hyd-B (that wonderful locale of spectacular weddings), it is time for the grand saga of "The Astounding Travels and Travails of a Heroic Bikang, Culminating in the Joyous Wedding of DruckB & Thyle.


And psaignnn - take a break and redesign the website.
Am I the only one left on this blog? Should it be a fear being here anyhow? Is "mama-mama" still common? Have bears started using toilets? *cue music* Where have all the bikes gone? Where have aaaalllll the bi-eeeks goooooone? *Fade out*
