Tusshar Kapoor and Seinfeld – What’s the connection??

16 May

So, everyone is talking about  Tusshar Kapoor’s picture in the Bombay Times today. This somehow reminds me of  two Seinfeld episodes called ‘The Package’ and ‘The Doorman’.

The Package

In this episode, George discovers the woman at the photo store is looking at his pictures. He thinks that the photo store clerk has stuck a revealing picture of herself within his pictures, when, in actuality, it was a lingerie model’s picture that accidentally got mixed in. Kramer convinces George to return the “compliment” by sending seductive pictures of George to the photo store woman, and offers to take the photos. He says, “George, it’s the timeless art of seduction. You gotta join in the dance. She sends you an enticing photo, you send her one right back.”

The Doorman

Anyways, looking at Tusshar Kapoor’s chest [Actually Moobs is the right word :-P] it reminds me of another Seinfeld episode called ‘The Doorman’ where Kramer designs a prototype for men with breasts and gifts it to Frank Costanza [George’s Dad]. Kramer and Frank think on going into the bra business with Sid Farkus. Kramer likes to call his invention “the Bro”, although Frank prefers “the Manssiere”.

So, it looks like Tusshar Kapoor can hit an endorsement deal with Kramerica Industries! The question is what should we call it, The BRO or The Manssiere??

Get your a*s up here!

Seinfeld – Are you the master of your domain??

30 Apr

Well I keep getting this tip from WordPress   Which reminds me of a Seinfeld episode called ‘The Contest’. This was by far one of the most famous and hilarious Seinfeld episodes!

There are a few suggestions which came to my mind after watching that episode over and over again. And WordPress should use them! 😛

Elaine’s Tip: Be the queen of the castle for just $18! I had put up $150 back then!

George’s Tip: Be the king of the county for just $18! Hardest $350 I’ve ever earned!

Jerry’s Tip: Why spend $100 when you can be the lord of the manor of just $18! By the way are you really the master of your domain??

This episode is a must watch. If you are from the busier lot then you must at least check out the highlight video in here! http://bit.ly/a3LkvP

So the question is are you really the master of your domain?? Are you? 😛

Rahul, Digvijay turn Venture Capitalists, Funding a Slap Detector

8 Dec

Delhi. Rahul Gandhi and Digvijay Singh are apparently conducting secret meetings after the Sharad Pawar slap gate incident. Reports say that Rahul Gandhi has “slapophobia”.  In his earlier interviews Rahul had mentioned whenever mom Sonia Gandhi rushed to slap him during his childhood he would threaten to call KGB. Hence, Rahul never got to taste a slap. After the recent Sharad Pawar incident Rahul is scared that he may be the next victim soon. His friend, philosopher and guide, none other than Mr. Digvijay Singh, came to his rescue. Both of them had the same fears and even Mountain Dew and Thumbs Up could not help them overcome their fear. Rahul tried to reach Akshay Kumar for some advice, but Akki was busy promoting Desi Boys. They finally decided to hire two talented IIT drop-outs who had a promising idea of making a device which detects a slap in a split second. This device has a very sleek design which comfortably fits in to the ear and resembles a hearing aid device. This device works on a button cell, they plan to include an extra cell along with the device.

This device detects the emotions and the brain activities of the people around using a 9th generation emotion censor which can map the brain activity in nanoseconds. If someone is about to slap you the device plays the song “Chaata Laga” and then the security systems can be alerted. Everyone in the world of Politics, Entertainment, and Business are keeping an eye on the latest developments in this research. Rahul has provided the IIT guys with free chai-sutta for inspiration and energy, as lack of chai-sutta had earlier resulted in them dropping out. He is also helping them out with free labourers from Uttar Pradesh. Barrack Obama has shown a lot of interest in the research. He says, Rahul owes us something big and if he delivers then they may clear the charges that FBI had made against him. The money for the funding obviously comes from Rahul’s girlfriendVeronique Cartelli on a condition that Rahul would not be using the device when Veronique is around. Robert Vadera has also shown great interest in Rahul’s venture and has promised to fund him if he needs more. Digvijay Singh is inspiring the two IIT dropout entrepreneurs by giving them positive thought. The entrepreneurs had made proposals to all the popular population but no one seemed to like the idea, but only after the slap gate says Manikantha, one of the two entrepreneurs.  This device will be out soon before the New Year. Sadly, it won’t be available to the common man.

(P.S – I had submiited this article to Faking News. Those fakers didn’t publish it 😛 )

Tech Slaves – I Hate You!

13 Nov

I proudly belong to a generation which saw the greatest of all innovations. Some innovations have been life saving while the others were just made to keep the money rolling in the bank accounts of the innovator/company. They actually don’t serve any purpose and  not many would agree with me on this. An iPhone or for that matter the iPad I think are innovations which we could have probably done without. Apple is probably one of the few companies which managed to do stupendously well without a brand ambassador. Their products spoke for themselves. They made products which had the promise to lure any human on the planet.

Growing up was fun. Friends, classmates were kinda fun to be around. Then the worst thing happened. We grew up! While growing up there were key innovations which aimed at making communication easy. Mobile phone was one of them. At the same time the we saw the IT industry boom and the Internet was the next best thing.

The cellphone was certainly one of the greatest innovations. The cellphone has evolved over the years and profoundly its current generation/avatar is called a smartphone. There’s hardly anything that you cannot do with your cellphones today. Then you have the Social Networking era that is ever evolving with newer products and features every day.

The basic feature of these products/innovations was to help you communicate with your friends, colleagues, family etc. The meaning with which these products were created were to boost communication. But the question is, do we actually communicate? Do we like to communicate? Do we care to communicate? No we don’t!

I still remember the days when communication was difficult. Long distance calls were expensive and the mail would take forever to reach you. But in-spite of all this we kept in touch somehow. I know someone who is supposedly my friend on Facebook but then he ceases to say hello when I run in to him on the street. I meet an old school buddy recently and he was submerged into his smart ass iPhone as if there was nothing better in this world to do. Their material electronic possessions are of more importance to them than their old friends. Its as if  the phone, the tablet and the application is their life support system. They cant live without it. They have become slaves. Its Human to love material things. As Guy Kawasaki said “If you make meaning you will certainly make money”. I think apple products never made any meaning. Except for the iPod and the Macintosh OS everything else was only Good Looking and a Status defining possession.

In a  smart phone today “Calling” isn’t an  important feature  but everything else is. In some cases what I have seen is the whole phone works great but when it comes to calling its a failure.The recent iPhone 4S reception issues is one of the biggest examples. Call drops, Network issues etc. The emphasis of a phone design is never on providing better calling facilities. The phones companies have forgotten it. And why not forget it? Who calls anyways? When our apps work fine why do we need to make calls? We never buy a phone to make calls. Making and receiving calls has become secondary. Angry birds is more important than talking to a friend who is standing besides you. Siri is another thing to toy around with, but I guess Siri has or will have a problem understanding the Indian accent.

These devices, applications, websites were solely made to boost the communication aspect amongst the people. What we have become is lazy asses who completely depend on these dumb devices. Dump these devices and get real fellas! Stop living in the virtual world!

Peace!
