  • Check out Jezebel – the women’s magazine you won’t ever see on the newsstands. Jezebel’s mission is to cover celebrity, sex, and fashion for women — without airbrushing. Think of it as the sort of women’s media property that could never see the light of day in traditional print because the big-name advertisers and the publishers who kowtow to them don’t much like it when someone points out the vulgarity of a $2,000 handbag. For a sampler, read this post – it rocks.
  • Thanks to the private sector banks operating in India, I am almost a millionaire – in unsolicited pre-approved loans! After ICICI bank’s unsolicited pre-approved loan for Rs. 455,040, it’s now HSBC’s turn to offer an unsolicited pre-approved loan for Rs. 404,000. They even couriered a fancy loan certificate. That’s a total of Rs. 859, 040 in less than a week. I am short of Rs. 140,960 to hit the one million milestone. Any other bank watching this space? You know what exactly I don’t need now.
  • Watching an old Kannada movie starring Anant Nag and Laxmi on Udaya Movies. The old films were so much better. They carried a message and the acting was brilliant. These days, the crap being passed off for movies is just about unbelievable.
