Meghana #2.

Meghana's first movie released at the end of February. I haven't gotten a copy yet... (Meghana??) but I did find a decent quality version of one of the dance numbers from the movie, check it out below.

Also this an official shot of Meghana from Venkata in Sankata:

Palace of Fine Arts.

Also extremely delayed (Feb 14 weekend)...

My sister, Amish, and I all went to the Exploritorium ( on Valentines day. My sister and I concurred that it would be a lovely place for a guy to bring a girl on a date (yes I am still stuck in the era when guys do all the dating leg work, at least at the beginning)...

Anyways, these are shots I took at the Palace of Fine Arts (about a 5-7 minute walk from my place)...As always let me know what you think.

Music Blogs.

Extremely Delayed Post from (Feb 14 weekend)

I have two really close friends who love to blog about music. They have two very different blogs, but both have an eclectic mix to share.

If you are wondering why I'm posting about their blogs, it's because I came to a realization this weekend. I have always liked music. In the early to mid 90's I was very into R&B and Rap. I had tapes and cds ranging from Soul 4 Real to Bone Thugz N Harmony... when I got to college, my "western" music interests fell off a cliff. I would hear popular songs at clubs or on the radio, and know them and listen to them, but I wouldn't say it was love.

I actually thought artists had just gotten bad... I was wrong.

This weekend, my friend Avani ( visited, and we all hung out at my friend Puneet's ( place. We were all sitting around listening to music from Pun's computer and MTV afterhours(right?)... I don't remember exactly, but the point is they played a lot of awesome songs like:

And again, I found love. For anyone who was feeling like me, I would encourage you to check out their blogs. I guarantee you'll find something that is up your alley. I did! And it's not that music has gotten bad, its that your tastes probably changed!

Pun and Av, thanks for sharing!

Fix You.

It's rainy and cold outside. If I was sitting on my couch and didn't need to go outside, I would actually enjoy watching the rain beat against my window. Unfortunatley, I had to venture into the soggy, cold, SF morning...

And now I have coldplay's "Fix You" on repeat... I heart the lyrics (I only posted the best lines).:

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse...

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

One of my favorite songs... check it out:
