Kinda hilarious, but you gotta give it to the bugger. And he has told that his fellow Capuchin friars were supportive of his passion, ''except for a little reprimand'' six years ago following an appearance on a television show - the last time he agreed to do TV.
An Old Monk.

And by the way, I have not even downloaded the COB album....fucking a$$holes!! Yeah with their eyes on the dollars!!
For the people looking for a "key" to decipher my title - here and here.
I had bought the hard drive more than a year back but never could lay my hands on a 0 size screw-driver. Just a few weeks back got one off a chinese place and wonder of wonders, it worked great. Ripped open the player, installed the new hard drive and plugged it into the USB on the computer. Started off with the firmware screen and I had to download the new firmware and re-install it again (I already had the latest firmware). Then formatted the player and there you have it - an 80 GB hard drive in a Creative Zen Xtra.

Rest In Peace - Richard! You were one hell of a keyboardist and took us on some amazing trips! Will be missed by a whole lot of people!
Sadly this joins my post on Syd Barrett.
Point taken and all that jazz. But still no one wrote a post about what happened in Orissa. I would like to see how many posts there are now about Mangalore. Guess not too many will be there. Those that turn up will be just from some far-left blog somewhere. Well, after all, the christians bring it upon themselves by their conversions!
Well, to date 7 churches have been vandalised and some other mindless violence has taken place. When people protested, they have been lathi-charged. Wonder where the police was when the crime took place. I have heard from people close to me that even small churches in off beat places have been broken into and vandalised. Mindless - I must change that term. Planned is the term. Statues have been broken. Church pews and benches smashed up. Much more.
See a small pattern emerging here.
Start breathing the air - the pogroms are upon us!
Update - posts already up. But the one I came across has got a very disturbing tone to it. Not linking to it. Minus 1.

"There have been all sorts of farewell moments in people's lives and careers which they have then rescinded, but I think I can fairly categorically say that there won't be a tour or an album again that I take part in. It isn't to do with animosity or anything like that. It's just that I've done that. I've been there, I've done it."
On the other hand, I am looking forward to his new DVD release - Live in Gdańsk. Sure that that will turn out to be an awesome concert.

Update - Hamilton was stripped of his first place since he "cut corners" and Massa was given 1st place instead, Nick Heidfeld 2nd and Hamilton down to 3rd....I am just thinking if Hamilton had not cut corners and pushed Kimi, Kimi might have won!!

Not one blog have I read that has written about what has happened in Orissa. I waited this long to see that some post will end up on my Google Reader. None. Nada. Zilch. Zero.
What balls it had, has been lost. For the indian blogosphere that is! Not capitalised anymore.
Well, I shouldn't really say that none of the blogs have mentioned it. Some have. Actually very few have. We have more important things to cover like the Barack Obama situation. Or the Gustav in the Americas. Or that some random indian was punched in the face and called names in some subway station in London. Or that some random person who was "racially abusive" can now no longer participate in some random "reality" show somewhere.
No one cares to know that "a mob "allegedly" set fire to a person - alive" in some random village in Orissa. No one bothered to write about people who ran away from homes, literally scared for their lives and lived in the forests. No one cared to even write about the fear that these people still live in. Some have returned. To be put into special centers - riot care victim centers. India shining - burning more likely. Smell the progroms all over again.
I appreciate some of the bloggers who have indeed written about this. Samuel and Mutiny.in to name two. And let me tell you that I am not even going to start on the perpetrators of this crime. I am just concentrating on the indian blogosphere here.
Dissapointing to see that two of my favourite Blog aggregator sites - Desicritics and DesiPundit did not even mention it. Yes, I know that you aggregate or put up posts only when someone else posts them. No posts then. I would not want to start on the blogs of other "socially active" bloggers even. Not one mention. Damn disappointing people!
You didn't mention it cause the tribals asked for it? To be displaced and burnt alive?
But the explanation is interesting, especially from a techie point of view. Two points I loved in the comic book most...
