An early bird drank beer from a man on a wild horse

1. Early Bird

Go to office early and come back early (coming back was just a matter of luck only today. it doesn't happen everyday)

2. Plan Master!

I spend most of my evening after coming back from office in planning for the coming weekend. We plan to go for a off-Broadway show, a dance show, a body exhibition, botanical garden for the spring bloom, an art museum and eat at historical places. Whoa too much for two days. Lets see what all we can actually cover.

3. Beer

In case of an early exit from the office - it is customary for a person to come and open the refrigerator, take out a chilled beer and start sipping before anything significant takes place.

4. The Man Who Wasn't There

My recent interest in Billy Bob Thornton has lead me to watch some of his movies. I haven't had the chance to actually concentrate on him. This is a well made movie. It has this 'there is no hurry' kind of feeling through out this movie, but in a good sense. The commentary is perfectly blended. This comes from the rich house of the Coens. Can't say it is one of their best but yes, definitely intriguing. This was actually shot in color and then transferred back to black and white. What really impressed me is the 'sluggish time' direction (it is extremely difficult to make an interesting movie out of a sluggish plot) and the eye for technical detail (this is my fav topic; my group used to irritated with my obsession about technicals). Highly recommended for people who enjoy perfection in cinematography (a must for Satyajit Ray fans) and good writing.

5. Wild Horses

A classic from Rolling Stones multi platinum album - Sticky Fingers. My personal fav of the album. I think this is the only Stones album, for which I can say I fell in love with each and every song. I remember buying it from a highly unlikely music shop in Nagpur. I think it was outside a stadium, where a circus used to come. I bought on a whim and I had no idea I was buying a classic. Most of my hunches have worked and I have subsequently become a fan of the artists. The other examples of my 'feel good hunch' buy are - Binaural by Pearl Jam, Slang by Def Leppard, The Ozzman Cometh a compilation of Ozzy's fav numbers, Rotten Apples by Smashing Pumpkins... etc. The list makes me so proud of my musical instinct. All of these albums are my favorites for those artists (Well, the best is still Brave New World, but anyway these are close by). It did betray me a few times though- when I bought Greatest collection of Meatloaf. Well no offense, but I got bored by the time I finished the double cassette album.

Anyway - enjoy the Song

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I cant let you slide through my hands

Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I dont have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Lets do some living after we die

Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, well ride them some day

Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, well ride them some day

I inclination not acquiesce in on it. I think warm-hearted post. Expressly the appellation attracted me to study the sound story.
