Love this song. :) :) :)

Description: Ending Song

Performed by: Maaya Sakamoto
Lyrics: Troy
Composition, Arrangement: Youko Kanno

The Wolf's Rain closing theme version omits lines 9 - 14...

The lyrics...

Been a long road to follow
been there and gone tomorrow
without saying goodbye to yesterday
are the memories I hold still valid?
or have the tears deluded them?
maybe this time tomorrow
the rain will cease to follow
and the mist will fade into one more today
something somewhere out there keeps calling
am I going home?
will I hear someone singing solace to the silent moon?
zero gravity what's it like?
am I alone?
is somebody there beyond these heavy aching feet
still the road keeps on telling me to go on
something is pulling me
I feel the gravity of it all

Looking glass

My sister finally made it into the dance group for her school annual day. She now comes home really tired. On one such particular evening...

Sis : My leg’s hurting! (Tries her hand at wailing).
Mamma : Come here, I’ll make it go.
Sis : Is there moov? (She meant the balm)
Mamma : Yes, Papa has got a new tube.

*Mamma gets a phone call... *

Mamma : I’ll ask Papa to massage... I’ll be back.
Sis : No! you do it! (Puts on her long face)
Papa : Come here...

*Sis continues to wail*

*I take my gaze off the glass*

Me : Abhi, lets name them.
Sis : Tch! (Puts on a “My leg is paining... don’t talk silly” look)
Me : Come on... look, we’ll start with these two.

*Papa escapes*

Sis : Ok.. we’ll name them “Angel”
Me : But there are two of them...
Sis : They are alike!
Me : No.. see this one? It’s got a few streaks of white on it.

*Sis takes a closer look*

Sis : Right akka!
Me : I told you...
Sis : ok.. one is Angel.
Me : Other? Fairy?
Sis : No... “Angie”
Me : Angie sounds silly... Fairy

*Sis ponders for a few moments..*

Sis : Ok.. Fairy and Angel... the full black one is Angel.. the one with the white streaks is Fairy.
Me : Ok!

*Sis smiles... the aching of the leg long forgotten...*

Sis : See... Angel and Fairy are always together...! They don’t move... lazy they are!
Me : I know! (Grins)
Sis : What shall we name the others? The orange one? Lets call it “ Pony”!

*I don’t voice out my thought that a “Pony” suits a horse better*

Me : Ok.. whatever.

*Sis smiles... I smile back...*
*Mamma comes back and sits next to her... I tell her in sign language about the forgotten leg pain... Mamma smiles*

*I continue gazing through the glass whilst my Sis tries her best at naming the rest of them*

I've got less than ten days before I see those "faces" again. I don't want to! I mean, I don't like them, they don't like me, period. The first semester has already gone by, the second one is commencing now, and I've spoken to only two of them. I don't like the rest. The rest don't like me (I'll keep emphasizing on that, yes). Of the whole lot, very few are worth it. The fact is, its pretty much damn obvious. When its out in the open like it is now, there's no room for any complexities, which I am glad for. But the fact remains that there exists mutual revulsion.

If this semester turns out to be any different than the last, well, guess I'll just have to welcome the change.

PS - If you don't know me, you don't know what am talking about.
PS2 - No, its not who you think it is.

Role play

Ana Lucia Cortez(LOST)
Ana is depicted as that tough girl on the outside, but a sensitive one on the inside. Previously, she’d have been an officer. Ana always played the bad cop. Her’s was a governing personality.

Phoebe Buffay(F.R.I.E.N.D.S.)
Pheebs is kinda a ‘hippie’. Her character is that of a dumb woman.A masseuse and a guitar player! I just love her body language... you know, the way she uses her hands, a fluid motion in them.

Albus Dumbledore(Harry Potter)
The enigmatic head master, who believed in speaking a few, well chosen words. ‘nough said.

Dee-Dee(Dexter’s lab)
The seemingly silly sister of an apparently born genius. She’s tall. “Oh! What does this button do?” – her favorite line. Think its still aired on CN.

Ryu Amakusa(Detective school Q)
The hushed boy of the group. Great deducing skills. A mystery in person, if I may say so.

The squirell!

You are taking a stroll through a park when a tiny squirrel jumps out of nowhere. Where do you think the squirrel was a second earlier?


Here is the analysis:

You are very direct, which might freak them out. Something along the lines of "Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror?" might slip from your lips.

Have you ever speculated what life is about?

Or who you are?

It’s not about you being a human or a female or a male or any of the customary answers to that question...

Ever wondered what you are doing here? Ah, I can see some of your sullied minds working fervidly...

Try giving it a rational answer.

Can you? I think not...

Where DID you come from anyway? Oh yeah... right. Darwin’s theory. So... from the water

But what the heck ARE you doing here??

You are born, enjoyed your childhood. Then you grow up ... you keep growing up till one day you are gone... just like that. Done. Over. No more! But life goes on as usual for others. Few people might bewail your death. Fewer will remember you.

So let’s see. You pass out of your school with soaring marks in academics. Why? Ah, you’ve gotta get a place in a ‘good’ college. Then? You trudge for a few years, trying your best to advance in the path of your line of career interest.
Get a job. Work for a few decades. Increasing your family unit as you age. Stock up a certain amount of affluence for them.

Aggravate your health on the way... and BOOM! You are gone! Then? What happens

What IS the rationale of your life? Why do you have to accomplish those plentiful things? For that fleeting contentment?
We had a lesson in English. The scurrying of ants on this ‘huge’ earth is nothing compared to what is happening out there in the universe. One sentence “It’s like an atom in the universe... in a universe of atoms... “.

Your feat of things is such a trivial fixation on this universe. Uh huh... it IS!
Believe it!

Sure there are people who might say something like, “Life is short... enjoy it to its full degree, while you still can!”...

Yeah right!!! :P

You have absolutely NO idea as to what lays ahead for you...! No... Not those everyday ‘Nostradamus’ or... or whatever-you-think!

I, for one, have mixed thoughts on this... Sure my family comes first for me... But the thing is, I keep coming back to the same question... the purpose of my living here? What is it!? Huh?

Any aliens out there? No one knows... what the heck!

Any one who can give me an answer?

DON’T give me that “God made you... you are his child... “, reply!

Atheist, agnostic, call me whatever you want... I’d rather go for something with proof!

Sheesh! I haven’t found an answer... maybe you can help me out!

Incongruously, am listening to “It’s my life” as I type out my forlorn thoughts!

Taare Zameen Par

Movies aren’t my thing. Particularly on the big screen. Or better still, definitely NOT Bollywood. I prefer Hollywood horror and suspense movies. I’ve watched only a handful of Bollywood ones. The most recent was Aamir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par.
And you know what? I am glad that I watched it. Yeah. I really am. I mean, it was a relief to note that there were no glossy “glam” females for a change. No lewd “item numbers”... all that crap.

But hey!
Try this link...


PS – I know... my Aunt rocks!!!

Kids totin’ pistols around these days.

Maybe it’s a good idea to wear a bullet proof full-body suit.

Or better still, get myself Reacher! :D

Any Reachers’ out there?
