Why no new posts?

Posted by anandrr on April 18, 2010

We’re house hunting in tony Palo Alto. So it’s not that books haven’t been read that need to be blogged about: In Cold Blood, The Millenium Series and so on. Of course movies have been watched: The Ghost Writer, Un Prophete and such. But house hunting sucks everything out of you. So we blog that instead: Adventures in Real Estate. Also of course a part of the ever-growing Blandings Media Empire.

Merry Christmas

Posted by anandrr on December 29, 2008

Ammupatti is all busy writing about Christmas cheer. So in a rare bit of media empire friendliness (this being the season and all), here’s my bit to spread the cheer. Stephen Colbert has written a new Christmas song. I tried as hard as I could, but I can’t get it to embed, damn you WordPress, damn you to hell!

If you’re like me, you’ve already downloaded the track when Itunes released it as their free single of the week earlier this week. If you’re not a cheapskate like me, you downloaded it last month when they released the entire album.

I’m not much into cameras, and couldn’t tell a D3X from an F2 and wasn’t even sure whether my own camera was a Canon or a Nikon till I checked. But this is bloody hilarious.

And just last night I was transfixed by the movie. One thing that stood out yesterday, but I don’t remember from the first time I watched it (maybe I’ve just forgotten), is how the camera shakes every time a shell explodes. Even on TV it’s effective.

Long Timeout

Posted by anandrr on May 20, 2008

What with one thing and another I went missing for almost 3 months. Work pressures, way too much travel, and what not. In the meantime, this blog got the short shrift. But I must write more. Once more unto the breach. So here we go. With stories about travel, eating, India and more!
