Whiplash.


The best of the best. Two thumbs-up all the way for this one from me! Hands down to one of the most exhilarating (as i heard so) movies i have come across. You will never look into music the same way again!

Remembering the original Common Man (Aam Aadmi).... R. K. Laxman

R. K. Laxman (October 24, 1921 - January 26, 2015)




Sometimes i would just pickup the newspaper to see the cartoon at the bottom of the front page! Though, when i was a kid i couldn't understand some of his cartoon references more often, but still i loved those! As i grew up i understood all his references and how relevant he was on things happening around us. I am truly saddened. I highly respect this "Common Man". Just paying my duly homage for the one and only.. Rest in Peace, Rasipuram Krishnaswami Laxman. We will miss you!

"Four Days" from the movie 'The Bridges of Madison County'

Lines by Robert Kincaid (Clint Eastwood) to Francesca Johnson (Meryl Streep) in 'Four Days' book in the movie "The Bridges of Madison County". I just love the words used here, sharing..

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods
There is a rapture on the lonely shore
There is a society where none intrudes
By the deep sea and the music in its roar
I love not man the less, but Nature more
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before
To mingle with the Universe and feel
What I can never express, yet cannot all conceal.

Dot-com domain marks 25th anniversary

The dot-com domain, which helped launch some of the most pioneering and successful internet companies, marked its 25th anniversary Monday.

'For anyone under the age of 30, they probably don't remember when the Internet wasn't in their life. It's become such an essential part of how we work, live and play,' said Mark McLaughlin, chief executive of Verisign, which administers the domain.

The first dot-com address was registered March 15, 1985, by Symbolics computer company of Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Only five other companies registered that year, and it took until 1997 to attract one million addresses, as it became the launchpad of companies like Yahoo.com, Amazon.com, Google.com and eBay.com, as well as spectacular failures such as fashion retail disaster Boo.com and AOL.com.

There are now more than 80 million dot-com websites, including 11.9 million e-commerce and online business sites, 1.8 million sports-related sites, and 4.3 million entertainment websites.

In total they generate $400 billion a year, according to an independent study cited by Verisign. That figure is expected to grow to $950 billion by 2020.
