Vanishing Charm

October 5, 2006

Mrs Valentine @ 22

If only all house name boards were this charming, finding the house you want to go to would have been a much charming and simpler endeavor. Alas these are a dying breed in metros of the new urban India. The one above is from a street in the Richmond Town neighborhood of the southern Indian city of Bangalore. The new wave of mass construction is taking down the charming colonial style and other free-standing houses and changing the urban landscape to one filled with bland and uniform (ugly) high-rises without any character or style.

Monkey See Monkey Do

The same 12 year-old cousin (mentioned in the post right below) was seen wearing this T-shirt with the quirky little character on the front and back.

12 year-old’s Playlist

August 12, 2006


Got a peek into the iPod playlist of a 12 year-old cousin of mine who’s from Stoke-on-Trent in UK and stumbled on these usual and unusual suspects:

Trivium / Bullet for My Valentine / System of A Down / Red Hot Chilli Peppers / Blink 182 / Lostprophets / Slipknot / Sum 41 / Tenacious D

And apparently this 12 year-old has established his presence on as a 14-year-old.

Rupert Murdoch made the right investment by buying MySpace.
