Axl Rose wasn’t kidding when he wailed about everybody needing ‘some time on their own’. All I seem to be hearing these days is, “Give me some time”. “Am I going to get paid this month?”, ask I. “Give me some time”, says the office accountant. “Are you going to fix my laptop?”, I ask my AMC guy. “Give me some time”. “Can you gas up my car please?”. “Give me some time”. The list is endless, keeps becoming longer each day (and sometimes late at night), and is beginning to get on my nerves.

Anyway, this is a chicken and the egg debate, so I’m only venting for the time being. Post 1st November, the more grating of these questions will (hopefully) be answered by, “Right Away”.

In other news – my move to Bombay is now imminent, and, since life seems to be coming full circle as usual, I’m going back to my corporate whoring days. Call me a sellout, I don’t care anymore. I’ll have to justify time spent on the job (or not spent) to a higher God (boss-to-be), but at least I’m going to be paid well, and won’t have to constantly chase clients to pay up. I'll be away from the family, will have people to hang out with, won't have to worry about power cuts....and so on.

The move also means a drastic lifestyle change. No more spinning music at the local pub. No more watching movies alone (with the induction of Ms. Firefly into self’s life). No more zipping along the roads at high speeds, because, well, it’s BOMBAY. The only zipping around one can do is in the wee hours of the morning, slaloming through all the potholes.

Also, no more blogging. Yes, that’s true. I won’t get that sort of time, plus the new firm has a strict policy about free speech, and unfortunately, they already knew I had a blog (just wait till I find the snitch). So, till I figure some way around this little obstacle, this post, and the few to follow, will be the last you lot will hear from me in a while.

Since this page may have to be shut down shortly, here’s some shameless promotion for a band of lads who truly deserve it. For people who love rock n roll, the new band on the block to tune in to, is The Circus. I’ve known these kids for a while now, and have jammed with one of them. They’ve ripped across the Indian gig circuit over the past two years, have featured on Channel [V]’s LaunchPad, and will soon be releasing their first record, From Space. Do give them a listen, kind people, because their music is really a lot of fun. Oh, and also, take a gander at The Constellation Project.

Stop.

thanks a lot...i'm all up for shameless promotion..thanks a ton.
And do you still have the anything concert video? I still think it was a good gig. Cheers.

Mister Crowley said...

I cant believe you're gonna allow some suited n booted shits kick you off your own blog.

Ok, I can believe it, since it happened to me a few months ago, but WTF man, you're a lawyer who can't fight for his own corner? Not done.

All the best with BBay and all that jazz. I'm not a fan. Any city where you can see people bathing in the sewage outlet of your office gets a big thumbs down from me.

Send me the link of your new, less publicized blog. You betta.

Bledy! Does this fate await SB one day?

Are you taking your jalopy along for the ride?

Perakath said...

Also, what Monty said last.

Mister Crowley said...

Monty/Per: Hello. What am I lawyer for if I can't find a loophole or 2? ;)

the snake said...

no more blogging...what the hell.

Nimpipi said...

Tchah! Don't do drama. You'll end up having a blast -- which all your readers want, of course -- but you'll have so-o-o-o-o much more to blog about. And time can always be found, yo.

Also, I am happy for you that you shan't have to watch movies alone no more.

(You'll miss Khan Market, just you wait.)

Mister Crowley said...

Pips: I'm sure I'll have a blast. But I will miss Khan, Def Col. etc. Not to mention the winter. As for the blog..it's a, well, legal obstacle, not so much as a 'I can never find time to write' obstacle.

purpledpages said...

Are you serious? They won't let you blog?? That's unacceptable man

chitgo said...

mumbai..aaah..damn, I'm surprised at my own envy :P

Heard the circus perform at GIR earlier this year - perhaps a better band on record than live? The only band that I really rocked out too was Rabbit is Rich apart from BM ofcourse.

When's the move?

Mister Crowley said...

Chitgo: Dude, I moved more than a month ago....close to 2 now....

chitgo said...

i'll let you know when im in bombay next.
