Arbitrary Thoughts

Nothing beats seeing Sachin and Dravid bat together. The grace they bring to the game is unparalleled. I was hoping they see through the day, unluckily would not be so.

Generally I do not enjoy watching movies based on the books that I’ve already read. Thankfully I did not adhere to that thought for the Millennium Trilogy. The three books – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest are all excellent, and so were the three movies. There were multiple changes from the book, many things were ignored, but it was not difficult to understand the movie’s flow. Had I not read the books, even then I would not have had any problem following the three movies.

Read a graphic novel (A Scanner Darkly, got it dirt cheap at the Landmark Sale) for the first time, did not enjoy it at all. Should stick to normal books only.

Soon I would be a published author, two of my short stories are being published as a part of an anthology of short stories.  The book should be out by November end.
