Squatting Elephants Do Lie

Dana Carvey is rambling on and on about Scientology and wondering what kind of weird religion could make even John Travolta look up and go “That is weird!”..As usual, he is at his “let loose” best.
But other than the inspiration he gives me for the title of this blog, what I really want to ramble about is not Scientology but the “scare-tactology” that the Republicans are expected to adopt, more explicitly than ever. Lieberman is beginning to look more and more like Cheney and that’s not a good thing…but he is pitching for McCain like he is a Republican to the right of even the worst rightists. And here we are, spending hours questioning Obama’s patriotism because he does not wear an American flag as his lapel pin. Where else can this happen on this planet earth but here?
Scalia led Supreme Court has lived up to its reputation by passing yet another conservative law – albeit, in as many ambiguous terms as they can!

Dasavatharam continues to intrigue me and I have not had a chance to watch it again. The holography, symbolism and all the talks about people actually discussing the several intertwined plots, makes me want to watch it again.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and Ada have been blocking my ears for the last few weeks..from letting any other kind of music enter. The jazzy no. and Meherbaan top the list, while Rashid Ali sounds too good in Ishq Ada and Kabhi Kabhi. I don’t think I will go through an arduous process of reviewing these albums, as I need time – but they are Rahman’s and sure enough, he does not disappoint. Talking about music, just got a Belkin Car kit for my iPod and got to see how it performs.

Today marks the end of the first half of the year – Time just flies is as banal as it may sound, but that is the truth. While the squatting elephants may continue to lie for 4 more months, I am hoping the donkeys can kick them in the wrong place, come November.


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
