Flute Beatboxing

Flute + Beatboxing = GREAT STUFF!

Here is a video by Nathan Lee of Swaraj Music. He does some beatboxing while playing the flute. That requires some talent!

Appreciate your parents

Dedicated to all the dads out there, here is a song by Mike Skinner of The Streets titled "Never went to church". The lyrics are great, and you will recognise a beatles sample in the background.

And here is a video dedicated to all the to-be-mothers out there. I will never know what it is like to be pregnant and give birth, but I know I could never go through it. Women are better than us (men) in that aspect. They go through a lot that we dont have to bother about.

God bless the troops

While we sit here in our comfortable homes, the real heros are out there risking their lives for the nation. They give their best out there, while their loved ones pray for their safety from harms way. When they finally get back, most of them are not given the respect they deserve. Most of us are busy adoring celebrities and the other rich shmucks. We need to do more to honor our war veterans. They are out nations heros after all.

How to get back at credit card firms and other spammers

Like I do every morning, I went to check my mail to only find more coupons from Taco Bell, Hardees and coupons for oil changes.

And then..I got the usual Credit Card offers. How many credit cards and oil changes do they think I need?


Oh well...C'est la vie! When a jerk throws you lemons, one should make lemonade and pour it over their open wounds once you throw random sharp objects at the jerk.

Any way, I removed the business reply envelopes from the credit card offers, shoved some coupons in them and mailed it back to the credit card companies.

This may deter them from mailing me more credit card spam. And if not, they can still use those coupons. It is a win-win situation.

Please dont do drugs

Please dont do drugs...

I just came across this video online. It is of a few small children doing heroine. Even though I am a against drug and tobacco use, this video really shows why one should consider the risks of drug use.

By the way..the 8 year old in this video OD's and doesnt make it (sorry for the spoiler)

Something about my Goan heritage

I happened to find this video on Youtube...

it was made by a Goan in the Uk. The video shows Goan sweets. The music was recorded by a local Goan band that was playing during a local fiesta. That is something strange about us goans...we are everywhere but Goa. Goa is taken over by the Germans, the Brits and other Europeans. the music playing in the background is traditional Goan music. I wish I had some of it here. But I dont even know what the music is called...I cant even name a single Goan song...i wish i knew more about my culture, but it is hard to do that when you grew up thousands of miles away. Yeah, are music is actually different from the stuff from Arabia or India. Our culture and food differ roo. i guess we shouldnt be stereotyped to be alike just because we look the same. But according to most narrow-minded cultures..."you are what you look and sound like".

I LOVE telemarketers! =)

This is how I handled two telemarketers today:

1st Call:

Telemarketer: Good Morning Sir! I have some good news for you. You have been approved for a free *blah.........*
Me: Thats nice! Tell me more about it.
Telemarketer: Okay. Well, you can choose between a free watch for men or for women.
Me: But what if you are a proud transsexual like me?
Telemarketer: *pause* And what does that have to do with watches?
Me: Well, If men and women have their style of watches, why cant proud transsexuals like me? This is a free country...THIS IS AMERICA!!

*telemarketers hung up on me*

2nd Call:

Telemarketer: Hey there. Is Mark deSouza in?
Me: Speaking...
Telemarketer: You have been pre-qualified for a $1,000,000 lotttery in Phoenix, Arizona
Me: sound hot. Id rather have you than that million.
Telemarketer: I'm sorry sir. I am calling about your entry into a million dollar lottery...*i interrupt her*
Me: Well..Im sorry. You called me..So I thought you'd like to know what I was wearing

*telemarketer hangs up on me*
