Spider-Man 2 is only releasing in July 2004 and that *sucks*. With the kind of online and poster promos, it looked like its gonna be out this month. July seems too far away. I caught the trailer of the movie and as expected it looks good. A piece of advice for those wanting to see the trailer. The first time you view it, the video can be very jerky. Don’t bother. Let it run fully. Then play it the second time and its smooth. You’ll enjoy it better
3rd Ryze Chennai Mixer on Dec 20th. The venue is Mowbray’s Inn on TTK Road. ( Map & Directions) I missed the first two mixers, will make it for the third. If you are a Ryzer in Chennai, join in the fun. We’ve got more than 50 people who have said a confirmed yes and another 20 or so maybes… so I guess its gonna be a very crowded mixer. I prefer a smaller gathering but nevertheless will make it for the meet. ( via Chris )
Internet centre or sex centre ? : I’m on the road and quickly need to check an important mail I had been anticipating. I enter a nearby Internet browsing center. This centre had fully covered private cubicles. As soon as I enter my cubicle, I could hear smooching and moaning sounds coming from the next cubicle. My first thought was that a guy was viewing porno clipping downloaded from the net. But then the sounds were too realistic. No doubt that this guy was working his way ona chick. As difficult as it was, I turn my attention to my comp. I finish checking my mails and stepp out to the counter to pay.
At the same time, the door of my neighbouring cubicle opened. I was curious to know who this sex-starved guy (and the chick with him) was and was astonished to see two school girls in uniforms step out. They probably were studying in the 10th standard guessing from their age.
I look at the owner of the cybercafe and he had a knowing smile on his face…something that seem to indicate..”I don’t mind as long as I get my money. Why do you think I kept those high walled cubicles ?!!”
Coming to think of it, these cubicled browsing centers are good, cheap sex joints … offers more privacy than cinema theaters and less expensive than hotel rooms. Reminds me of Times Squares peep shows. For a moment, I’m for the crackdown by the police on these cybercafes.
I’d love to see Ajay Jadeja make a comeback. Not because I like Jadeja but because I like gritting comebacks. I find them hugely inspiring. Yesterday, he hit an unbeaten 206 for Delhi in the Ranji trophy match. That’s a good sign.
8000 new blogs added everyday : Dave Sifry, the guy who runs Technorati which tracks worlwide blogs has this to say “We’re adding 8,000-9,000 new weblogs every day, not counting the 1.2 Million weblogs we already are tracking. That means that on average, a brand new weblog is created every 11 seconds.”
