Puscifer – Green Valley

Hello stranger,
Can you tell us where you’ve been?
More importantly,
How ever did you come to be here?
Though a stranger,
You can rest here for a while.
But save your energy,
Your journey here is far from over.
Come the sunrise,
We’ll descend through Judgement Valley
And weigh your worth
Before her majesty, the Verde River.

No direction but to follow what you know,
No direction but a faith in her decision,
No direction but to never fight her flow,
No direction but to trust the final destination.
You’re a stranger til she whispers you can stay.
You’re a stranger til she whispers that your journey’s over.

Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.

No direction but to follow what you know,
No direction but a faith in her decision,
No direction but to never fight her flow,
No direction but to trust the final destination.
You’re a stranger til she whispers you can stay.
You’re a stranger til she whispers that your journey’s over.

Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.

Keepers

I found Love, once.
Found it, then lost it
Then found it again.
I found Love, Once.
In all the unknown places,
In all those well known faces.
I found love, Once.

I found Love, once.
Found it in such deep sorrow,
Found it and I was hollow.
I found Love, once.
In all those well known places,
In all the unknown faces.
I found love, Once.

I found Love, once.
In the middle of the shallow
winds when I did follow.
I found love … Once.

Opel – Syd Barrett

“On a distant shore, miles from land
stands the ebony totem in ebony sand
a dream in a mist of gray…
on a far distant shore…
The pebble that stood alone
and driftwood lies half buried
warm shallow waters sweep shells
so the cockles shine…

A bare winding carcass, stark
shimmers as flies scoop up meat, an empty way…
dry tears…
crisp flax squeaks tall reeds
make a circle of gray in a summer way, around man
stood on ground…

I’m trying
I’m trying to find you!
To find you
I’m living, I’m giving,
To find you, To find you,
I’m living, I’m living,
I’m trying, I’m giving”

RIP Syd “Crazy Diamond” Barrett.

Happy Holidays! – Neil Gaiman’s Dark Christmas Poem

Posted in Interesting stuff | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment

Sometimes …

You made me think of you.
Think about the good times,
Think about the bad.
Think about the moments
I never thought were memories
… before.

You made me think of you.
Think about the cold outside,
Think about the cold inside.
Think about the the sun as it hits
… your eyes.

You made me think of you.
That mischievous grin after a bottle of gin,
As it made you think of something
And brought a twinkle to your eyes
… again.

You made me think of you.
Think about the where and the who
And of the forlorn shoe that you left
… behind

You made me think of you.
And wonder if you think of me too
… sometimes.

Exit

My mind is empty, my thoughts run wild.
No one to hear me, no one to tell.

The days grow longer, the nights fall apart.
Not even shadows linger, no way to start.

The end is near now, the tower bell rings.
No place to run to, no birds shall sing.

O love, my lovely, my time has passed.
No longer lonely, no time to dance.

The rain drops fall, to ease the pain.
Your nights grow longer, your days grow thin.

This too shall pass now, all will be well.
No one will hurt now, no one will kill.

The moon has passed and the sun sets in.
I’m just a memory,
Let a new day begin.

Airtel Broadband: Windows slaves?!

SO there I was, hating my dataone connection for its recent spate of bad service and low bandwidth and thinking of changing the connection. The only real alternative here in India (apart from local dsl providers – cut cable no internets!) is Airtel broadband. Now I wasn’t looking for a Rs. 300 internet connection to check my emails or some other shit like that. I am looking for a high bandwidth connection from a company that provides good customer service.

I check the Airtel broadband page and I see  everything I need: Good speed (2 mbps), good price (Rs. 1600/- per month) and a promise to be good for streaming with a 24x7x365 customer support service. Ok! Great!! Where do I sign?

Then, just to make sure I got all the details right, I check their terms of service – check, their usage agreement – check, their FAQ – damn!!.

Apparently, Airtel broadband does not have linux or mac support or even Windoze XP 64 bit support. So, essentially, to use Airtel Broadband, I have to have a vista (Blech!) computer or some other variation of a winsnore PC!

WTF, Airtel?? In this day and age, when even the government run BSNL dataone service has support for us non-drone users, you cannot find a DSL modem that works with non windows computers?? Do you want me to send you a list of DSL modems that do and help you lay the lines as well?? In an ever increasing non-windows world, you want to limit yourself to “reboot computer” users?

Shame on you!
