the smiley error?

March 31, 2009 § 25 Comments

One of my friends just pointed out 

yes you use it so frequently so randomly like theres nothing left to say in the world like the universe is running out of letters

 

when we write something we want to know what people think about it  ….or for their opinion advice

 

So Am I using too many smileys? See I am not using any smilies on this post. Oh! well…

So what do you think ? I shouldn’t use as many smileys as I do? I should reply with a “ty” , “ya i think so” etc etc to comments? And I thought Smileys made people happy and also helps in putting things not so rudely…Hmm…time to stop them?

 

If you don’t want to tell me on my face(er..directly in the comment box) just use this poll box.

The smiley tag

March 4, 2009 § 28 Comments

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

So,this is it.This is my very own tag…after all I am the smileyananda..er…smiley man 😀

The objective:- To make people smile.When you saw the smiles above ,I am sure you started smiling too.That is the whole idea of this tag,to make others smile/laugh. I don’t need to tell you all about the good effects of a smile,but a smile always helps you get out of lows and makes you feel great.So this tag shall spread the smile,in all the blogs.At least this way for once all the blogs shall be smiling and looking bright and happy at the same time.Let us for one post forget all the nonsense in the world and just spread the smile.

 

On my face I have a smile,
IT is a sign of the joy of being alive.
A smile upon my face,
And at it you gaze
and now you have it on your face.

This happiness is life,
Forever we can smile,
Never let sadness become ripe,
Put a smile upon your face,
And grace through the days,
Gloom is all haste and waste,
Never let the smile run away,
Today is happiness’ day.

On my face I have a smile,
IT is a sign of the joy of being alive.
A smile upon my face,
And at it you gaze
and now you have it on your face.

 

So all you have to do is post some funny pics/write something which will make people smile and/or laugh. And ya you have to begin the post with a line of smileys like how I have done 😀 

So before I do my post,let me tag :-

Reema(yes mam,I will study!)

Chirag( looking for some nice smileys 😀 ) 

Solilo ( a humorous soliloquay? ) 

Nimmy(someone provoke us to smile now 😀 )

Apar( give us a ROFL in the headtrip!)

Nita( A research on smileys/smile? ) 

Sakhi( A funny story?) 

Destination Infinity( Infinite laughter maybe?) 

Anshul(better do a cartoon 😀 ) 

Dinesh( ya 18000 RPM please) 

Indyeah (yeah!)

Kritajnya( go sis!)

-Anyone else who wants to do this.

Well all those of you who are tagged,pass this on(that is why I am stopping with 12 people).

Anyway to my post…



oh come on I leave it to Calvin..
sense-of-humor-laughing-at-absurdity

Anyway spread the smile 🙂 And my school moto

“KEEP SMILING”

From photoshopped

sketches…

February 24, 2009 § 19 Comments

So I managed to do a few sketches,they of course help me cool and relax between all the madness of not studying( ya joking,I am so bugged of people asking me,how are you studying,blah blah,that the second anyone asks that question,I start screaming like an American actress..).
Of course,I still don’t have a camera(March 21st ,march 21st!) but this time I guess the pics are better as managed to have enough sunlight while taking the photos( mobile cameras without flash work damn well in natural light,they suck otherwise)..So here goes…

This one was actually done in school,a while back…I think it was English or economics and was doodling while trying to go to sleep stay awake…

1)

From mobile photos!

The next 5 are pretty recent …

2)

From mobile photos!

3)

From mobile photos!

4)

From mobile photos!

5)

From mobile photos!

6)

From mobile photos!

I don’t like the last one that much,but still decided to put here,it was alright till I went slightly over board…my fav is the last but second one,I don’t usually do that much detailing but decided to try something different…

And well I found another old one,not exactly compete,but still….

7)

From mobile photos!

Again please forgive the poor photo quality 😛 What do you think,I have improved? And which one do you think is the pick of the lot?

P.S: See this link ,I have decided to set shop 😛 Once my boards are over,I intend to scan my sketches(the ones which look good) and use them there,for now,just went with my photoshop images and a couple of photos(don’t have time to work on it 😛 )

A 5 question interview

February 20, 2009 § 13 Comments

So Apar has given these questions to answer.This isn’t a proper tag,so the title isn’t “tagged”.So let me get the rules out of the way(they explain why this isn’t a proper tag 😛 {and I am not breaking the rules this time,at least not yet} [ :P] )

 

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

 

 

Now the wonderful questions 😉 

 

1. What do you mean by your tag line “the light shines the brightest”?

So someone asks me at last! I will try to keep this simple…

Even when you are in absolute darkness,you can see..now that is becuase there is light and it “shines”. Anywhere and everywhere in the universe,there is light(ya well the black holes,too need light to prove their presence). The brightest light is what we will be able to see(of course the brightest will be relative). And also light is what we all derive our food from. And light is the true omnipresent in the world. In a more personal level,we all are guided by the inner voice or self or light. This is what prompts us to act and question and interpret the world.I can call this pure instinct but the reason why I call this the light is becuase for a lot of reasons..And also where there is light there is a source…What do think about it? I would need a “loooooong post” to write about this anyway what do think “the light shines the brightest” can mean?

 

2. What do your smileys mean in your comments?
It is as I have said depends on comment to comment/post to post. It might mean I sympathise/empathise/agree with you(in case of 🙂 ) In case it is a ( 😛 ) then in means I think that is got a touch of humor and I agree with you 🙂 And of course the 😀 . I like to use smileys becuase when you see it,at least within you start smiling 🙂 
3. What inspires you to write your long poems?
Everything and anything. It is what I see and what I feel that inspires me.That is what inspires to compose,write etc,my forte is poems.And also the Light shines the brightest 🙂
 
4. There are those who have called you crazy/weird. How do you handle this? 
I am used it 🙂 No actually I like to call myself crazy(and so my email Id would tell you). After all insanity is the heat of mankind.Almost everyone whom I meet tells me I am weird/crazy , a few understand what I really am,A few don’t.Being crazy doesn’t mean you have to be locked up,what it means is that you are capable of things which others aren’t.
                                                    (or) {she revised the question,but I am answering both 😉 }
4. You always seem to be online and manage to do one post a day. You also are involved in YU. How do you manage to study for your all important board exams?
I am always online because my comp is always on 😉 Ya well I started YU! 😛 And I prefer to study during the night.What I supposed to do,lock myself ? I am not that sort of a person,I cannot see life as something where we torture ourselves,I like to enjoy life,if i don’t enjoy something,I can’t do it….so I try to enjoy studies as well…
5. When do you intend to turn up for bloggers’ meets? Where would you like your first meet to be?
Once my boards are over 😉 Hmm..on Mt.Everest 😛 Seriously speaking no clue,I will turn up one day,just wait 🙂
So thats it folks,now who wants to be interviewed by me 😛 (someone please 😛 I like to ask questions 😀 😀 😀 ) Just leave a comment and I will send you your questions 😉 

tagged!

February 16, 2009 § 18 Comments

Destionation Infinity  has tagged me! The tag’s name is “Slow Melodious and Soulful Songs“.

Music is a form of expression. And to us the work of an artist is a way to relate to the ultimatum within us. Now the problem with this tag is,I do not know how I would be able to stop myself once I have began.

From M.S.Subhalakshmi to Pink Floyd and ARR to Metallica,I love so many songs.And add to that the classical wizards of symphonies and suits and an  opus ordinates intself of an extremely high allegro! 

But let me start with Tamil songs,as DI asked me to do 🙂 Though tamil is my mother tongue,one major problem is that now days the tamil me and my friends speak,has a lot of English,in fact I can talk tamil only with a few people,to others I switch back to english after a sentence.but luckily for me I can ask my grand parents and parents the meaning of words.

And then then there are the film songs,well I am not really a filmy person.Well let me list them,enough of red-hearing 😛 

-Kurai Ondrum Illai 

 

– Bhaja Govindam

– Bethoveen symphony 9

-four seasons by vivaldi

-Tchaikovsky, Piano Concerto No. 1

 

Now those are my top 5 🙂 Of course i would say entire collection of Tchaikovasky(should be able to spell him soon without a mistake 😛 ) and Bethoveen..I like the way the hit the right high notes.The first two songs have a lot of emotional value to me

Let me choose a few from movies 🙂 

-Masakali( ya ya ya 😉  )

-Katrinilae mozhi

-Kalai matrum kandal from Dashavataram

-All the songs from Jodha Akbar

-Slum Dog millionaire songs(seriously people it is guuuud!)

-I admit most of ARR’s songs 🙂 

Forgot a lot of songs 😛 But I usually like songs with good lyrics..

And I should say most of Floyds and Guilmore’s songs. I should also add flipsyde’s songs( a few spun,flipsyde,someday etc)..But they aren’t really slow but soulful when you need to cover your burns 😉 

It also depends on my mood I guess,But I mostly listen to Tchiakovsky…I started this post with the aim of listing a lot of songs but as I linked the videos i got into the songs and have forgotten the list 😛 

 

Anyway Now I tag:-

rambodoc ( yes music for the body and soul doc,please! 😛 ) 

Apar

Meenu(first one i am passing on to you?) 

Jeevan(patu!) 

Paul(we never get to hear about music from you 🙂 )

Vimal( Enjoy !) 

Quirky Indian

P.S: Ya I am 17!! Not 70 😛

An award and A question

February 1, 2009 § 17 Comments

Nita has given me the garland award 🙂 putting a garland around a persons neck,is considered a way of giving respect. If you watch travel channels’ shows,you will see people being welcome that way.

Leaders usually are given garlands,but you don’t hang a garland on the photo of a person who is alive.Tamil cinemas are known to show couples getting married in registrar’s office,by exchanging garlands and than the signatures.Of course,you can also aquire a garland by putting Rs.200 at least on the temple priests’ “plate”.

She say’s she gave me(and two others ) because 

 

To me these blogs are like garlands, not just attractive, but also those which give off very positive vibes. 

So now I get put this virtual garland on various bloggers.Now this is tough,anyway the garland goes to:-

Amit(He would make a good politician,if his oratory skills are as good as his posts).

Reema(Nita also has given her this but still,I like the way she keeps it simple..hmm…Reemavathi(?) )

Gounder Brownie(Thalaivi! [head lady or leader!],even if she writes rubbish ,I can’t stop reading her posts.)

Vimal(You better post a song along with this award 😛 Hopefully he will win the thondi Idol)

Rambodoc (A doc,who will do a good job as the health minister.)

Prerna ( Another person who will make a very good politician.)

Solilo ( this award will add some good vibes,below the  say no to criminals in politician banner 😉  ) 

So those are the seven.Please pass it on (yes GB,it means you 😛 ) before the flower starts to witter.

Now to another thing which I noticed , about the forgetful(amnesia) incident,all the blogs went on and on about it.I normally would have written about the thing,but decided not to,till now.

So before I go anywhere,as close as writting a post about it,I want a clarification,

  what you think really is Indian culture? 

Where Am I?
