Prometheus - What a MESS!

First things first, I hadn’t been to this movie on my will! My elder brother Suhi, my elder sister of 15 minutes Susie and I wanted to go to “snow white and the huntsman” in DCR cinemas, Mysore. But god knows why the show got cancelled and since we were already there we thought why not go watch the movie that was shown as an alternative last night. After all it had Charlize Theron as one of the leads.

So all I mean to say is that Prometheus is not the kind of movie, any average movie-goer like me would want to watch! Here is why common folk like me and you might not like it-
Because it is beyond our understanding why Westerners are obsessed with making movies either about what happened gazillion years ago (300 BC) or what is going to happen in the distant future (Prometheus)!
Because we worry a lot about today and do not really have time to think about mysterious questions like who created us (that is the subject of this movie), why they created us and how we could meet them.
Because even if we think about our creators we picture them to be beautiful creatures like angels and not some gross, alien baldies like the ones in the movie. (phnk! ..”phnk” by the way is the sound that is produced when I try to control my laughter!)
Because for us, the most important part of the universe is our solar system. And the order of importance is à our home, our city, our state, our country, our planet, our planet system. We just don’t think much about our galaxy or what lies beyond that!
Because we watch movies to let go of the reality for a while and enjoy some time in the fantasy world, not the fanatic world that is created in Prometheus.
Because watching people puke in 3D is not exactly our idea of entertainment!!
Because it is so darn difficult for any normal human being to watch Naoomi Rapace get an open operation done on herself in a futuristic thingamajib and then get her stomach stapled!!! EWWWWWWWWWW… !!
Because it is comical to watch a robot emote stuff it is not supposed to! I mean C’mon!

So to sum it all up- the movie is better avoided! Specially the 3D version as it leads to extreme headache and nausea!!  A little heads up, if you, however want to watch it (in spite of reading this)- please don’t go to the night show as the chances of you having nightmares are very high! Been there my friend.. been there… !!

Steven Eckholdt – The most Hate-able Person on TV

Ok so it’s not about his personality to start with, but the characters he has played over the years, that have made him the most hateable TV person on my list. I know he is handsome and totally metrosexual – looking, but hey, nobody coerced him into playing the two worst characters on Television. So here goes, the “ that third guy who broke the cute couple up” roles he played:
Mark Robinson – FRIENDS:

Who doesn’t remember his character Mark Robinson from FRIENDS? We all hated him, when he got Rachel an interview at Bloomingdale’s, we hated him when Rachel hugged him leaving Ross cold after her interview, we hated him when he got her Chinese food right after Ross & Rachel’s situation which later got very famous as the “we were on a break” scene, we hated him when he told Rachel he had a huge crush on her but didn’t act upon it because she was with Ross then, we hated him and this was the last nail in the coffin– when he took Rachel out and hurt Ross (Unintentional? I don’t think so!)…

The Most Important Groupies of All Times

The Rock n Roll storm of the 60s was a much needed revolution in the music history which gave us many great bands and musicians the world segments as “legends” today. While we are all well aware of how much this time period was unequivocally the best time to “be discovered” in the music industry, I wonder how many of us truly notice what kind of opulence being discovered led to.Money – check, villa – check, vanity, private jets – check, fame – check, women – check oh check!

Women – as musicians were a small group compared to the behemoth group of male musicians in the 60s and the 70s. Pattie Smith, Stevie Nicks and a handful more made their mark in the male dominated music industry. Also behind the veil were the groupie clan that slowly and steadily made their ways into the rainbow lives of artists – satisfying the egos and “other things” these men were “in need” of. Being a groupie was more than legitimate if these girls (also men, yes there were male groupies also ) were of the right…

Badassery, thy name is Ma Anand Sheela! (A No spoilers post)

When Netflix’s recommendation displayed the docu-series “Wild,Wild Country”, I was uninterested. One of my friends had enlightened me about Osho Rajneesh’s teachings when we were still teenagers. The bits and pieces of the cult, she had gathered from one of the neighbour uncles, who at the time I think had no filter as to what to be shared with teenagers and what not, didn’t sound sound to me. According to her information, Osho was a spiritual guru who encouraged people to find happiness via physical means! At the time, I wasn’t sure she even knew what she was talking about! But anyways, that was the picture I had in mind of Osho. As a grown up, I am no longer a prude but the image of Osho hadn’t changed until recently.

I started watching the series because it had tons of hippie culture shades. I have been fascinated with hippies and their liberated way of living ever since I watched Woodstock documentary. So, the summary as was on Netflix, got me a bit curious and so I started. And …
