of late, i have found myself engrossed in vintage rock. that’s right, the goth snare is beginning to wear off and i’ve phased into good ol’ retro rock and roll. for the past week or so, i’ve been listening to tesla, yes, bad company, deep purple, black sabbath, eagles, the who, allias, xtreme, faster pussycat, toto, pink floyd, heart, and of course, meatloaf:)
halian led me to an interesting observation the other day. he mentioned how he has been writing contemplative blogs on life and so was i. as i blog-hopped around, i noticed that suddenly, quite a number are in this lets-reflect-on-life mode. i think its seasonal, but what interests me is that everyone seems to be in the same state of mind.
and when i take a step back, i notice that people in my office are starting to make idlic philosphical remarks about life and the way of the world too. very strange. people are talking about the oxymoron of life’s simplicity vs life’s complication, the satire of world events vs children’s fairy tales, metaphors of the little things vs things that really should matter vs the bigger picture, and then there are the living for the moment vs planning for the bright and shiny future dilemma.
what’s with all the philosophy lar??
i think it’s that time of year. the time of year when months passes without a single public holiday and a school holiday planted smack in the middle. if my calculations are right, it is also exam season, for both the studying and working. i don’t know what’s going on, but the chi seems to be pretty morbid around here. heck, even the catfight in the allasiansdebate egroup has died down. hm, yes, very strange.
it is william shatner’s birthday today. star trek fans would know. in case you don’t he’s the dude who plays captain kirk on the original starship enterprise. if you don’t know who captain kirk is, then choSuvchugh ‘oy’lIj Daghur neH… hahahaha!… that’s klingon, by the way, but you wouldn’t know that either:p
qoSlIj yItIv, will!
