Fargo on GTA San Andreas!!


This is a hilarious and highly sarcastic view at the GTA Hot Coffee patch controversy. It's true, what the article implies. Larceny, robbery, and cold-blooded brutal executions with a variety of materials is all ok for teens, but the moment nudity hits the scene, it all goes for a toss. So the game is now AO. Adults Only. Hehehhe...

Not A Bad Day At All..

So it wasn't the best of starts. Kohinoor vs Kamasutra didn't get us the kind of response we expected, but we did learn we were arrogant and cheaters. Right, let nothing be a waste, always learn.
I got my conflict presentation done too. Saudi Arabia - Yemen border conflict of 1994. Crisp, short, and to the point. Not because I was concerned about audience reaction, but because I thought I was prepared, when I actually wasn't. So all I was doing was reading off the slides, and trying to find my way through the hard copy.
And the play. I slept through every alternate line in the first half. In the second half, I was eating some chinese in the mess. But I liked what little I saw nevertheless.
So another day, another lesson...

Screenings at SIMC

We have screenings three times a week at SIMC.

So far,
Chanakya ep 1-3, progressively better
Mirza Ghalib ep 1-3, ditto

Ankur - decent
Nishant - fell asleep after the opening credits
Charandas Chor - Damn funny for the first 20 minutes, then degraded and put me to sleep. Then saw the last 30 minutes.

Jack The Ripper
Search For Atlantis
The Leopard Son

A Hard Day's Night - Unfortunately, fell asleep midway. Saw the beginning and ending.

U2 - Live - forgot where (actually it was a free lecture, not a screening really)

All these are in the afternoon, after food, in a room without a/c or proper ventilation. No wonder most of us fall asleep. Atleast, I do.
