Random Rambling 1

Typing anything before your mind makes a decision is sort of tough. But these days, I had taken a break from reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged to read some business book, and my linguistic skills took a nasty blow in the derriere. One might wonder what that has got to do with linguistic skills, but I'll say, hey man, that's got a great deal to do with it, and I mean it. First of all, using such cuss language along with the words 'linguistic skills' itself is gross. In short, let me explain, when you are reading a book with sophisticated English, it sort of rubs into you and your usage of language reflects that. The business book that I had to read was good in content but abysmal in language. Americans really can't speak classy-ly even to save their lives. Well, speaking about language anyways, I read this in Readers' Digest long time back: There was this person who had traveled in various countries, and had particularly observed the 'no smoking' signs posted in buses in those countries. Now I don't remember all the signs he had mentioned, but because of stark contrast I do remember the American and the British signs. The American buses request the passengers by saying, 'Please do not smoke', while the British buses say, 'You are graciously requested to refrain from smoking.' Nice isn't it? Or as the British would probably put it, 'Certainly the most impeccable way to make you point cleah!' (That h is on purpose OK)

An important point to remember while typing random stuff is that you should never mention it too often that you are being random, as the fun lies in being understated. Ah, understated! Whatever happened to being understated? People these days are so in-your-face and naked! Sheesh! I am talking about the reality shows that are mushrooming up these days. If the cheap dance-shows and stand-up comedians are not enough, people are interchanging the places of contestants in these two shows. The children are trying to be stand-up comedians. And boy are these brats so cheap! They think they are funny because they crack some slimy jokes which can tingle the funny bone of only a pan wallah in a roadside tapri, but the judges laugh at their jokes, guffaw to be exact. But why won't they? If you are an out-of-work loser of an actor or some politician/sportsperson with criminal record and if you are being payed a hefty amount, you'd laugh even at your own mother! The rural imports a.k.a. stand-up comics, on the other hand are trying to shake their body to Bollywood music in what can only be assumed as some Hallowe'en costumes. The breed of judges is the same here. Analogically, talent plays no role in either judging or contesting. Throw in some tawdry melodrama and people from the wrong side of the tracks will scrub you some measly TRPs. One buxom lady, it is heard, is also gonna arrange a wedding for herself on the TV, right from the groom hunting. She shall not be mentioned on my blog for obvious reasons of maintaining the C-Quotient, but let me hint you that all about her is not real and her image (figurative & literal) commits a sacrilege of her first name. I watched one episode of Paris Hilton's reality show, Paris Hilton's New BFF. That show surpasses the boundaries of being dumb and our desi contestants, against the ones on their show, suddenly appear so dignified and brimming with self-respect. Why would anyone on this earth want to race with others to become someone's supposed best friend? According to Paris, she's had lots of best friends but some didn't last while some did, (duh!) so she was in search of a new one now (sic). That proves one thing though, you can't survive on moderation in this world. Either you gotta be supernova intelligent, with IQ double your weight, or nerve searingly stupid with IQ equal to the number of fingers on your left hand which should've been through an accident, only then can you be so rich that people would find whatever you do as cool... or in Paris's style: hawt.

OK, I have rambled a lot. Trying to cut the size of my posts these days. The B. I. says: Just think random, and probably you'll find the missing link. Thank you very much.

P. S. I have not used 'Backspace' even once while writing this post to maintain the authenticity of the Randomness. It's been used though only to correct spelling errors. Don't like 'em on my blog, OK.

hahaha such randomness! One point i'd agree upon are the cheap reality shows where all jobless people/stars are employed to increase the channel's TRPs.

P.S : If you haven't used the back space even once except for correcting the spelling errors then you have done a wonderful job!

No use of backspace eh? What did u do then? "Control-A" + Delete every time u made a small mistake? [:P]
Kudos for your achievement anyway :d

Im sick of those stand up comedy shows too. Too much of comedy has actually killed it. Among the dance shows, only one stands out..Dance India Dance is really good.

No Comments on Miss Sawant [:P]

Mebbe She and Miss hilton need to bond with each other. They could turn soulmates [:P]

Wow, you must be wonderful at typing with no mistakes to correct :)

This post was wonderfully random yet you know what , Very smart !!! Goes to show sometimes when you let you mind wander, you come upon wonderful ideas and concepts !!!

Reality shows, well there's always something to be said for a class act which some shows just don't have. And it's sad that people are willing to do anything and everything to be on TV or for TRPS .

That's all from me now ...

Very random and very interesting and that woman you mentioned staging her own reality tv marriage, well she is copying Jodie Marsh who pulled asimilar stunt!!!No respect for marriage its disgusting!!! I bet you she in for the money!!

Saadi said...

Reality TV is downgraded by several notches by all these random ideas people think up of which really have no depth to them at all and are nothing but extremely cheap and extremely tasteless!

But as long as there are morons, we'll continue to have them!

Ash D said...

Yeah, well almost everything I wanted to say has come up in the above comments! :D

Yeah well TV shows nowadays are really crazy, and it is still a wonder how they rake in all those TRP's. They sure know how to stimulate Human curiosity into watching the crappy stuff eh??

As for the marriage part, Yeah well the silicon asset enabled lady seems to find it a fitting option, or maybe the only option. Bah why am I bothering about her, Tell me if Priyanka is doing such a show, I'll sign up.. :P
