Binge Watching Chandler Bing!

It’s funny that this rant of mine is actually playing out in my head as if the words are being spoken out loud by the very characters. That obviously means I’ve been watching way too much of the show, not that I can do much about it. I’m at the fag end of Season 9 and there are, like what, 32 more episodes to watch before I go insane and shoot myself?

Cinema Originals – Monthly Roundup #7

200 movies!! Yippeeee! So it took 8 months to score a double century. At this rate, the 1000 mark will probably be reached only by March or April 2020. Huff! Wonder how people collected million DVDs. I don’t even know if I’ll have such a high paying job I’m 2020.

Reusing Reverse Osmosis Plant’s Rejected Water

Solar Eclipse: Let’s “Un”eclipse Our Minds

R.I.P Abhishek

“You heard about Abhishek?” A friend asked me on phone. “He died, in an accident. His new wife, his brother-in-law …

The Story of a Squeaking Squirrel 

I pulled out an old walking stick lying in the cupboard and tried helping him (the squirrel) gain his freedom.

Casualty of being Casual?

I could’ve been many things, but I didn’t become those. Not because I didn’t want to become any of those, but because I wanted to become all of those. And sticking to that line of thought, trying to be everything, I never paid enough attention to any single time.

My Partners

When we talk about partners, two obvious meanings are derived – one that means a life partner, can be a spouse, a live-in partner, a lover and the other that’s in the context of businesses.

And then, we have partner-in-crime. That’s the partner less talked about. 

Throwback Soundtrack: Kareeb (1998)
