Yesterday we went over to Amrit’s place to check out Alap’s new bass guitar and the effects box…very cool value additions to the band which will certainly increase the depth of the band’s performance. The next performance is scheduled for the July 23rd at the Nyumburu Center in College Park.
Subho and I are getting a little tired of Cable TV in all its glory (with 400 channels of inanity). For the lack of quality programming we land up watching movies that we have already watched again and again. In the past few days we have revisited the last LOTR movie, Finding Nemo, Pirates of the Carribean (Orlando Bloom is oh so dishy!!!) and The Anchorman. The only good thing about Cable TV are the multiple reruns of "Friends" and BBC. So once the three month low-rate, trial period is over, Comcast shall get a call and it shall be "bye bye digital cable, hello basic cable". Ha, the god old days with just MPT to watch shall be back.
I also watched Troy - the movie. Hollywood has managed to turn yet another hero ( a Greek hero for that) into an all American, broody, brawny with oodles of raw sex appeal type cave man...what else do you expect from a movie which has Brad Pitt playing Achilles with highlighted blond hair!! Orlando Bloom as Paris and Eric Bana as Hector were not enough to redeem the movie from scorching to cinders under Brad Pitt's sex appeal!!!
