21 grams

how many lives do we live? how many times do we
die? they say we all lose 21 grams... at the exact moment
of our death. everyone.and how much fits into 21 grams?
how much is lost? when do we lose 21 grams? how much
goes with them? how much is gained? how much is gained?
21 grams. the weight of a stack of five nickels.the weight of
a hummingbird. a chocolate bar. how much did 21 grams
weigh?

the suicide's argument

suicide's argument
ere the birth of my life, if I wished it or no
no question was asked me--it could not be so !
if the life was the question, a thing sent to try
and to live on be YES; what can NO be ? to die.

nature's answer
is't returned, as 'twas sent ? is't no worse for the wear ?
think first, what you ARE ! call to mind what you WERE !
i gave you innocence, I gave you hope,
gave health, and genius, and an ample scope,
return you me guilt, lethargy, despair ?
make out the invent'ry ; inspect, compare !
then die - if die you dare !

quake 4

hav 2 wait for quake 4 till oct 18 ?
if life was quake 4..
reality at real fps..
best surround imaginable..
force feedback without a joystick or rumblepad..
strogg n lotsa strogg.. i'd acquire
strogg superpowers n fight 'em
forget chipping.. jagged edges and
bad fps and AGP overclocking..

the difficulty levels..

monday - nightmare
tuesday - hardcore
wednesday - hurt me plenty
tuesday - bring it on
friday - i can win

choose life

choose life. choose a job. choose a career. choose a family. choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. choose fixed- interest mortgage repayments. choose a starter home. choose your friends. choose leisure wear and matching luggage. choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. choose DIY and wondering who you are on a sunday morning. choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing sprit- crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing you last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself. choose your future. choose life... but why would I want to do a thing like that?

"what could my mother be
to yours? what kin is my father
to yours anyway? and how
did you and I meet ever?
but in love
our hearts have mingled
as red earth and pouring rain
mingled beyond parting"

translated by a k ramanujan

its so beautiful.this song has appeared as a
spliced and modified vairamuthu version
( narumugaiye ) in iruvar movie.also found
that this song was the oldest ( 3 A.D )
and first from asian origin to be put up as
poster in london underground metros. cant
get over the lines "chembulap peyalneer pola"
( like red earth and pouring rain )
