Another face in the opaque crowd searching for some translucence to diffuse and project his myriad thoughts through this utterly abhorrent state of lame rigidity.

Learning to breathe

I was tagged by Abhishek.

One heck of a tag it is. It can stretch your mind to wild limits.

Rules :
1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, IPOD etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS


N.B. – Don’t cheat; it spoils all the fun!

Windows Media Player. Shuffle turned on. Here I go..



1. If someone asks you, “are you okay??” you say:
Pour some sugar on me – Def Leppard
(Yeah! Do so, I am bitter anyway and the things I am going to say will be more so. Can you take em', raw?)

2. How would you describe yourself?
Numb – Linkin Park
(Not untrue. Often I am expressionless, silent and cold.)

3. What do you like in a guy/girl?
TNT – AC/DC
(She should blow me off, err…my mind.)

4. How do you feel today?
Dear agony – Breaking Benjamin
(Maybe, in my sub-conscious. I consciously do not feel so.)

5. What is your life’s purpose?
Far away – Nickelback
(True, it’s far away.)

6. What’s your motto?
I want to hold your hand – The Beatles
(I sure want to hold your hand, but not of a physical being, but of a metaphysical thing called life.)

7. What do your friends think of you?
Blackwater Park – Opeth
(Might be the case. I am dark and dubious.)

8. What do your parents think of you?
Walk with me in hell – Lamb Of God
(Don’t worry mom & dad. I’ll be there to rescue you, not walk with you. No doubt, both of you were sent to hell for bringing me to this world.)

9. What do you think of often?
Wonderwall – Oasis
(Yes. I love to dwell in my self-created and myriad-dimensioned world, often.)

10. What is 2 + 2?
She will be loved – Maroon5
(Exactly. When 2+2 not equals 4 it has to be something that defies logic; and what can be better than love.)

11. What do you think of your best friend?
Shine on you crazy diamond – Pink Floyd
(Yes, you are crazy and you are a diamond. You should be shone on and you would shine.)

12. What is your life story?
Light my fire – The Doors
(Now, this makes me reminisce. Till sometime ago, maybe; but my fire is lit now.)

13. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Hallowed be thy name – Iron Maiden
(Haha! Don’t know what to say.)

14. What do you think when you see the person you like?
Black dog – Led Zeppelin
(Okay! Black dog is one of the costlier brands of scotch in India. So, she shall intoxicate me, in the finest way.)

15. What will you dance to at your wedding 4th anniversary?
Snuff – Slipknot
(I am good with cigarettes, I don’t want snuff. Unless, of course my wife makes me quit smoking, which again is unlikely. But I would dance to the song.)

16. What will they play at your funeral?
Scar tissue – Red Hot Chilli Peppers
(Yes, I would love that. RIP, the lunatic.)

17. What is your hobby/interest?
November rain – Guns n’ Roses
(Oh yes, I love the chills.)

18. What is your biggest fear?
Blurry – Puddle Of Mudd
(Hmm… Blurred state of mind, of course.)

19. What is your biggest secret?
Thick as a brick – Jethro Tull
(The name of song says it all.)

20. What do you want right now?
Rape me – Nirvana
(I have my desires. But I am not as perverted as my media player.)

21. What do you think of your friends?
Give in to me – Michael Jackson
(Maybe, they give in to understanding-my-idiosyncrasies.)

22. When you want to rush to the toilet, what do you think?
Blackest eyes – Porcupine Tree
(When agonizing times come, I do think of the blackest eyes maybe, not consciously though. I don’t know, if the agony of strained excretion applies.)

23. Person you hate the most is in front of you, what will you tell the person?
Locking up the sun – Poets Of The Fall
(“Thou shalt be incinerated by the sun.”)

24. You have just won a lottery. What will you sing?
All these things I hate – Bullet For My Valentine
(Well, if I say that I would hate winning a lottery, I would be a hypocrite. But yes, I could hate the fact that it would spoil my plans, force me to believe that I have less control over my fate and give to me as a favour what I would have liked to earn. Not money that is, but in what I could put the money to use.)

25. What will you post this as?
Learning to breathe – Switchfoot
(Perfect!)



I would like to tag a few of my friends - Anshul, Raksha, Aparajita.
