Fifty Shades of Gray about to be read

 

fifty shades of gray coverLast week I went this stand-up show in Roppongi. They call themselves Tokyo Comedy Club. Although, the place was very hidden thus I missed the first half an hour of the show when I was trying to find the place, the rest of the show was hilarious.

There was one guy especially made me laugh really hard. At one point I could not find my breath and had to choke, thankfully my friend was sitting next to me and was better shape then I was, saved my life with a sharp elbow action on my back.

Anyway, at one point this guy was making fun of a book named “Fifty shades of Gray”. I did not read the book but knew the concept somehow. Hey who would not be interested with sexual content books.

But better part of the story is (what guy was also highlighting) this book read by woman(something like 9 out of 10) than men. he was saying in London Metro you can bump into middle aged woman reading this book and sweating pretty bad and can not dare to get off from the train. Of course today when I went to the book store, I could not stop myself buying this book when I saw it on the self. It’s not that I need extra sexual concept book to push my fantasies. It was simply curiosity… I swear :/

Underbelly: Badness; has to be on your must watch list


underbelly badness image anthony perrish

Underbelly Badness is an Australian TV series based on real events that occurred between 2001 and 2011. Do not worry it is not an 100+ episode series that goes on forever and sabotage your daily life routine. It has 8 episode, full on mini series and once it is finished you are feeling tears in your eyes and begging for more.

I have finished the last episode yesterday and had to replay the last 20 minutes of it again because, I could not face the reality that it actually ended so quickly. If you have not heard underbelly before let me give you quick summary. Underbelly series are complete 5 season and every season tells different events basen on gangland world in Australia. As you can guess the drug, murder, woman, guns and games are the main subjects. But what actually fascinates me is that most of those events still happens, you can actually go to an internet site and look at the real person in the movie and read the news about real events. I am still thinking the first season was the best but definitely others are as addictive as the first one and you won’t be disappointed for your time.

ok back to underbelly badness… I am going to take this part from wiki because if I tried to give what is the current series about, you might want to throw eggs on me because I gave so many spoiler for later on.

The current season of Underbelly depicts the criminal activities of recently convicted Australian kidnapper, murderer and drug-dealerAnthony “Rooster” Perish’s criminal activities around the Sydney suburb of Lindfield and adjacent areas and how the New South Wales Police ‘Strike Force Tuno’ finally apprehended him after almost a decade of intensive surveillance and informant information.

Anthony “Rooster” Perish would never have been caught if it was not for the dedication and perserverance of New South Wales police officer Det. Insp. Gary Jubelin. The series covers the scope and breadth of homicide, kidnapping, firearm offences and drug dealing committed under the direction of Anthony Perish, his brother Andrew Perish, various other criminal associates and several criminal Australian “motorcycle clubs.”

I am strongly recommending you Underbelly. Let’s join the club mate!!!

A Poem from Nazim Hikmet 2: On Living

On Living

I

Living is no laughing matter:
you must live with great seriousness
like a squirrel, for example–
I mean without looking for something beyond and above living,
I mean living must be your whole occupation.
Living is no laughing matter:
you must take it seriously,
so much so and to such a degree
that, for example, your hands tied behind your back,
your back to the wall,
or else in a laboratory
in your white coat and safety glasses,
you can die for people–
even for people whose faces you’ve never seen,
even though you know living
is the most real, the most beautiful thing.
I mean, you must take living so seriously
that even at seventy, for example, you’ll plant olive trees–
and not for your children, either,
but because although you fear death you don’t believe it,
because living, I mean, weighs heavier. Continue reading

Hiroshima Child

I come and stand at every door
But none can hear my silent tread
I knock and yet remain unseen
For I am dead for I am dead

I’m only seven though I died
In Hiroshima long ago
I’m seven now as I was then
When children die they do not grow Continue reading

Fight Club (film)

Fight Club (film) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Most people has a usual life routine and once you are locked on this routine, it is really hard to get free yourself and change it upside down. Either a really dramatic events supposed to interfere our life or we might bump into Buddha and spill coffee all over him, the turn around and ask ‘what is my life’s purpose?’.

I have watched the fight club over again last night. Regardless of the pleasure of Brad Pitt’s killer body and six packs, it is one of my favorite movies of all time. I remember when I watched that movie five and half years ago, a sentence struck and shook me hard.

“You buy furniture.  You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life.  Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you’re satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you’ve got your sofa issue handled.  Then the right set of dishes.  Then the perfect bed.  The drapes.  The rug.  Then you’re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.”

What is your biggest nightmare?

This is how I think I look like


I know it is a little bit spooky question to get into writing but please do not freak out. Only purpose is this post to tell you my biggest nightmare. If you are interested please keep reading.

There are times in our life we wish something in order to be able to do other things. Sounds complicated? Let me simplify that for you. Let’s say you wish to have a job, so you can earn money which will be your money. You have all the rights to spend that precious money in any way you like. You can pay your own bills, you can go for grocery shopping, you can go out drink with your friends and even get wasted, you can go on for a holiday(alone or with some one, does not matter. What only matters is that it is your money and you have freedom to spend it), you can buy a new car, stereo system or pink cushions for your lovely bed. When you do not have the money, the possibilities with what you can do if you have it is limitless.  Continue reading

Ain’t No Sunshine when the drummer is gone

I absolutely love this song. I am sure there are tons of out there giving me nods and yes-es. It is such a heart breaking song, you can almost taste the desperation in Bill Withers’s voice.

Every morning as soon as wake up, I would put songs to pump me up some energy for the day. I do not know is there anyone out there who loves the working mornings and not feel a little bit grumpy at all.   Continue reading

Reasonably Ludicrous

Disclaimer: Let it be known that this has nothing to do with my relatives. Those guys are awesome! (Oh, and if you don’t enjoy reading words, click here to skip ahead to the pictorial guide)

It’s that time of year again, when bundles of joy are placed beneath the tree, then later remembered and transferred to their cribs, when mice stop stirring throughout the house in adherence to the laws of Christmas, and when breaking and entering becomes an offense not punishable by jail time, but by milk and cookies.

But when Christmas rolls around, so too do the requisite family gatherings, events which unfortunately involve your family. Most relatives are as pleasant as you are, but if you’ve taken Biology, then you know that genes sometimes do stuff, and in their constant mutation, bad seeds take root, growing eventually into bad apples that fall far from the tree…
