Philosoraptor goes to Bollywood

Posted on March 13, 2011

The Philosoraptor is one of my favorite memes. For those of you who don’t know what a Philosoraptor is, you can read about it at Know  Your Meme.(and here)  There is something about that brooding Dinosaur that I find very amusing. My only contribution to the meme has been the Philosoraptor meets Lotus Notes. Earlier this month while I was at work, composing bits of the Mera Pehla Pehla Kaam blog post, I remembered this Bollywood dialogue – Sadak kya Peter ke baap ki hai? If you come to think about it, that question still remains unanswered. We don’t really know whether the road belongs to Peter’s dad or not. Which brings us to this post. Here are top 7 questions from Bollywood that…


Tantanoo goes to T-Nagar

Posted on March 12, 2011

I’ve been in Chennai for 3/4th of a year now and every weekend I discover something new about this city. Last weekend I discovered a continent hidden in Chennai. Last weekend, I went to T-Nagar. If you have dismissed T-Nagar as just-another-Nagar in Chennai, like say Ashok Nagar or Srinagar, I beg you to reconsider. T-Nagar isn’t an ordinary Nagar. It also doesn’t refer to Transport Nagar  – that excuse of a place that almost every North-Indian city boasts of, with an environment that is hostile enough to give Asthama to Optimus Prime. Neither does it refer to T Rajendar Nagar. The superhero-in-disguise has a t-shirt, a tumblog and a few songs in his name but he still has a long way to go…


Philosoraptor meets Lotus Notes

On a totally unrelated note, found out today that Websense has a category called ‘Tasteless’. The Philosoraptor memegenerator is blocked under that along with a few humor blogs. According to Websense, Tasteless filter is for: ‘Sites with content that is gratuitously offensive or shocking, but not violent or frightening. Includes sites devoted in part or whole to scatology and similar topics or to improper language, humor, or behavior’ It was then that I discovered that Even  ‘THE BEST PAGE IN THE UNIVERSE’ is blocked by Websense under ‘Tasteless’. Maddox’s entry on that makes for a hilarious read. Go on.


Mera pehla pehla kaam

Posted on March 4, 2011

Today I completed a year at work. *raucous applause* *applause fades* One year at a real job. Phew. I don’t need to use the words ‘Social Media Evango-anthropo-enthuso-logist’ on my resume anymore. Neither do I need to mention that I am the ‘Chief Something’ of Something on my Linkedin profile. Or use the word Entrepreneur in every mail that I send to reinforce the illusion of doing something. Fake pride aside, I am really happy that I have a job and that I haven’t been kicked out of it with-in an year. I love my company and I am proud of it’s rich and varied heritage. I shall always strive to be worthy of it. I shall give respect to my parents.. Oh wait.…
