Shiny Toy Guns --- Next Gen Ad

You would have watched this ad commercial(Motorola's RAZR 2), if you have browsed any (Indian) Television Channel:-

The Music of this ad is Technophonical and at the same time, cheesy, stylish and future gen type. Its from Shiny Toy Rock Band, and Lyrics goes like this:-

Hello little boys, little toys
We're the dreams you're believing
Crawling up the walls
Running down your face
Razor sharp, razor clean
Feel the weapon's sensation
On your back with loaded guns

Now hold on to me, pretty baby
If you wanna fly
I'm gonna melt the fever, sugar
Rolling back your eyes

We're gonna ride the race cars
We're gonna dance on fire
We're the girls Le Disko
Supersonic overdrive

So what's it gonna take, Silver Shadow believer?
Spock rocker with your dirty eyes
It's a chance
Gonna move, gonna fuck up your ego
Silly boy, gonna make you cry

Now hold on to me, pretty baby
If you wanna fly
I'm gonna melt the fever, sugar
Rolling back your eyes

We're gonna ride the race cars
We're gonna dance on fire
We're the girls Le Disko
Supersonic overdrive (x2)

If what they say is true
You're a boy and I'm a girl
I will never fall in love with you

We're gonna ride the race cars
We're gonna dance on fire
We're the girls Le Disko
Supersonic overdrive (x3)

Very shiny? Actually Mobile Set ads were never so handsome and involving. During the recent T20 world cup, this one from Nokia (Nokia Prism) was quite common:-



There is another ad from LG, for their Black Series mobile, though I could not trace its Indian Commercial ad clip. Where are Samsung, Sony ... ? Ad please ...

Sowmalya on Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya

Sowmu, my friend and the song Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya of Shree 420.
If we think from the premises of this film this song resembles the pain one is going through during the parting times.

But if we see the song from the beginning the song is being sung by a group of street people who in general does not have anything to loose or not much a thing to gain .Their singing the song indicates their casual interaction with life and easy acceptance of any good or bad. One big teaching which comes from this film is HOPE. Which reflects in a couple of plots of the film e.g. the 100 rupees flat sequence , the hope to get everything back for the poor, getting the love back after all the miss happenings.As we know this film is the journey of a small town guy coming to a big town and lost his naive ness partly due to the circumstances and partly by his inclination to be rich early (which in general every body have) .The first part of the song tries to make him remember the pure soled human with which he …

Douglas Hofstadter is well known for his classic - Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid. This book was published in 1979, and I purchased it in 2007, perhaps. I was deeply engaged with this book, for an year, and was so inspired by it that I thought to inspire others by gifting them this book. Little did I know that one of the two-three folks, to whom I gifted this book, complained indirectly about weight of this book, hard to carry.  I am yet not sure of fate of those books, I am very unsure whether people really read books -- those who read are of course scarce in number.
Anyways, Douglas is a big person, in the area of Cognitive Science. And I liked his article:  https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2018/01/the-shallowness-of-google-translate/551570/.
I will summarise his points (better to read his article):  Tools like Google Translate are half-baked. Lack the organelles to "Understand" translation. Beware of the term "Dee…

Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette

Now I'm a fella with a heart of gold,
The ways of a gentleman,
I've been told.
The kind of a guy that wouldn't even harm a flea
But if me and a certain character met
That guy that invented that cigarette
I'd murder that son of a gun in the first degree.
Well not because I don't smoke myself
I don't reckon they'll harm your health
I've smoked all my life and I'm not dead yet.
But nicotine
slaves are all the same,
At a pettin' party or a poker game,
Everything's must stop while they smoke a cigarette.

Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! that cigarette.
Puff! Puff! Puff!
And if you smoke yourself to death,
Tell Saint Peter at the golden gate
That you hate to make him wait,
But you got to have another cigarette.

Now in a game of chance the other night,
Old Dame Fortune was doing me right.
The kings and queens just kept on comin' round
I played 'em hard and I bet 'em high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He kept on r…
