What have I become, my sweetest friend!

November 19, 2007

Sometimes I feel like I never write anything positive in my blog. So far all my posts are about disappointments, accidents, disasters and what not. So last time when I posted about ‘Sidr’, I was thinking my next post would be about something good and positive. Unfortunate me, another bad thing has happened today. Bangla band group Dolchut’s Shanjib Chowdhury has passed away due to a brain haemorrhage. (link: DailyNews). I have always loved Dolchut’s music and preferred Shanjib’s compositions over Bappa’s (another lead of Dolchut).

So, what’s up with me!! Have I stopped paying attention towards the good side of life or good things have stopped happening around me?

Anyway, here is a song by country music legend Johnny Cash. He covers Nine Inch Nail’s ‘Hurt’. I believe this was his last official music release.

Lyrics:
I hurt myself today to see if I still feel. I focus on the pain the only thing that’s real. The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting. Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything.
What have I become, my sweetest friend. Everyone I know goes away, in the end. And you could have it all, my empire of dirt. I will let you down, I will make you hurt.
I wear this crown of thorns upon my liar’s chair. Full of broken thoughts I cannot repair. Beneath the stains of time the feelings disappear. You are someone else I am still right here.
If I could start again, A million miles away
I would keep myself, I would find a way.

Just finished reading an article on The Daily Green. It links ‘Sidr’ to Globam Warming and explains why ‘Sidr’ should be a matter to the U.S. (Link)

Dim Shongeet

November 15, 2007

These are two songs [i don’t know why the heck i am calling them songs] I composed almost a year ago. I don’t wanna call them parody songs, cause I wrote them while I was thinking about the love of my life: ‘dim’, to express my great affection towards it :p Yes! both of these songs [or, should I say skits!] are about eggs. Since childhood I have liked and adored eating eggs. :p I still remember me and my brother watching cartoons on tv and eating boiled eggs when we were kids. Though I don’t eat as much eggs as I used to, [too much cholesterol in egg yolks. I want to live 101 years :p] I still feel that great love deep down in my heart. :p

I didn’t sit down to write and sing them purposely. One time I downloaded a software that could remove the vocal from an audio track. So just to see how did it work, i recorded the first dim song removing the original vocal. The second one is just g1bBeRi$h. I was playing my guitar and was singing ‘ja ichha tai’. [i am not that good with guitar either].

Enough of the story. I know you will be thanking God for having a pause/stop button. :p
