Knight Riders Promotional Video

Speechless, we simply sit and shake our head in dismay:

(more on the Knight Riders here)

The comments section at the Youtube host site provides a good competition for Rediff. Enjoy gems such as:

This ad-vid is awesome!!! Ignoring the stupid commentaries that underestimate our king, I hope that to these boys all turns into gold. Is so sweet the determination with which he promotes the team.

PS – if someone can explain what this video has to do with cricket, Kolkata or even Bollywood, I will be much obliged.

…..such as it is, will resume soon. As in posts/rants/reviews on topics other than cricket.

As the all-mighty Lord (apparently prodded by the Dictator, who for some peculiar reasons thinks much too highly of American Football) pointed out, this blog has been possessed by cricket in recent times.

Should we blame the partisan Aussie media? Should we blame Harbhajan Singh’s itchy armpits ? Should we blame the streaker ? Or, the obnoxious weeds ?

Nah ! Just Blame Canada…….

Speaking of which, here is the best rendition of the song, IMHO:

As a staunch supporter of the Blogging While Drunk (BWD) movement, we take the strongest possible exception to this post, by the man who calls himself the ‘Lord‘. It is not so much the contents of the post or the spelling error in the title (Rambling not Rumbling), but it is the sober confession that the said plastered state was induced by Michelob, a watery substance that is often misinterpreted as beer.

I have to ask, what is the blog-world coming to these days ? Where is the honesty, where is the integrity ? Here we try our hardest to mix-up cocktails, or drink straight scotch, or invest time and money into proper beers to achieve the appropriate inebriated state, only to be upstaged by an obvious impostor, glibly claiming to be hammered under what – not the cheap whiskey, not the ubiquitous vodka, not even the patriotically American Budweiser (or the patriotically Indian Kingfisher), but Michealob! Obviously, the blogger is either extremely delusional or downright dishonest.

We feel the need to lodge a strong protest at this anti-sobrietal vilification – not to mention demeaning of value – of true BWD bloggers. We hereby propose that minimum standards be laid down to define plastered states, such that under the BWD Agreement (Moscow, 2005), bloggers may claim immunity from recriminations from their post. The Mai-Baap Govt of India, by past experience, is best placed to oversee such standards. A complicated formula involving the dimensional vectors of quality and quantity of booze, weighed appropriately by time and an ephemeral consideration for the state of mind can be worked out (yours truly volunteers to work this out for the price of a pint of Guinness).

Till then – down with the impostors !!!!!

Note – Under the full disclosure requirements of the Moscow Agreement (see above), this post was written under the influence of Bombay Sapphire, Ciroc Vodka, Cointreau, Kahlua (individually or combinations thereof) and Pepperjack Estate Shiraz; imbibed over a period of four hours (not including the time to write this post) under a content state of mind.

Friday afternoon silliness: taking on a new role

with one comment

In spite of being stripped of the chief-consul role following our failed (jeopardized really, but all to be revealed later) coup attempt earlier, the all conquering Lord and the benign Dictator has finally seen it wise to invest in this minion the title of Chief Justice. We have even been assigned our first case (the gown and wig, we hear, are on their way).

Needless to mention, such astute decisions only serve to display the Lord’s infinite sagacity and discerning qualities. For who else than a Bong, especially given our current ascendancy in the world, can deliver carefully thought out judgment in matters so complex. The case itself involves bit of a thrust and parry between the Lord and the Dictator. Ever since the momentous trip down south (of the country), there has been trading of accusations of willful ignorance of each party towards the other’s ping, DD and such advanced modes of communication. Matters have come to head with the publication of a list and the Lord’s displeasure at the glaring omission (in spite of later clarification, the situation has not simmered down) .

So after a deep thought of two minutes, we have delivered our judgment. It is to be noted that the ruling only looks into the case of willful ignorance; the Bong is wise but knows his limits and knows not to venture into the reasons for feminine joy. In summary, both persons have been found guilty to different degrees and have been served sentences to that effect. The text of the full ruling:

The Lord’s ignorance of his subjects and minions has been well noted. Weather this is in pursuit of academic excellence (doubtful) or more basic human needs, cannot be established at this moment. Consideration can be given if the Lord can establish the latter with solid proof. Otherwise we decree that the Lord needs to either get married during his upcoming India trip or manage to lay 5 (five) different women (in the real, not virtual world – no Facebook romances). Else he shall be banished to reading only Sepia Mutiny and Ultrabrown (Manish’s stuff only) posts for the rest of his life.

Given the Lord’s stature, it is not possible either to dismiss his counter-charges against the Dictator. At the present time, the court is not able to determine the Dictator’s extra-curricular flirtatious activities. Under such circumstances, the Dictator is expected to provide gory details of happenings on Cali beaches as well as provide a rant-a-day entertainment services for all of us, failing which the court will have to let loose hordes of god-fearing, morally uptight, teetotaler suitors at her door-step.

Case dismissed !

…….as the blogospshere’s Dictator and Lord meet-up somewhere along the 29th parallel before heading south, an occasion that promises to be of monumental proportions.

This lowly minion has been promised exclusive drunk-dialing rights. So all will be revealed, or not.
