tit-bit

Tit

I have finally got the photos from the plays we staged. The whole show was a collection of three short plays.

The snaps of the play I directed (Layaa) are here

You can find the photos of all the plays and all the fun we had before and after here

The photos of "Layaa" and "Words" are from our dress rehearsal and not from the final day shows. That might explain the different background (and the unkempt, unshaven and non-made-up faces) that you see in the photos :)

Bit

One of the most interesting discoveries that I have made in the recent past is the podcast. Now, I am not sure how many of you use iTunes to listen to music (it's free. it's good and hey, it's apple all the way! (though a trifle heavy on your system resources) and you find it here). With the latest version of iTunes you have the vast directory of podcasts - podcasts, are well.. it's difficult to explain. Let me do it with an example. I subscribed to this podcast called Cinecast which is a movie review "channel". This "channel" is updated every week with a new episode. Once I subscribe to it, I can download any of the earlier episodes and listen to them and iTunes automatically downloads the latest episodes as soon as I start it (the first thing I looked for was for a "Friends" podcast. Nay! you don't get it there!). What's amazing is the variety - I am currently listening to the adventures of sherlock holmes. The whole collection of sherlock holmes stories is read online and despite the occasional yawns and the squeaks, the narrator does manage to hold your attention. Apart from this, there're podcasts on science, movies, business, news. Ok .. before you shut the door on the salesman, I'll part with these profound last words - Do try it :)

Talking about the Itunes thingy, yep you are right...it is just the best thing I have found on the net as far as softies are concerned (softies being softwares for me!!) - one of the most cool thing about Itunes is that if some of the folks on your neighbourhood are hooked on to Itunes too in their respective PCs then you can log on to their Itunes network too and listen to their songs...my folks tell me that someone getting to share my Itunes list with them would be quite happy...guess why!! - i have a collection of 8,649 songs which can keep running non-stop for 27.3 days as Itunes says..one more goodiews (good news!!) the toll is going to touch 11,000 soon...since am getting some extras too within a couple of days...about dharam.us I liked the backstage quite a bit..am sure your play turned out to be a huge success...it should if your backstage was quite so well co-ordinated - i wish you all the best for all your future performa...through MISFIT...keep it up...

The play photos took me back to my college days (and reminded me of what I'm missing, being away from Bangalore).

I'd originally thought you acted in plays - this role as a director comes as a pleasant surprise. I'd love to talk to you about this when you are here next (which, I heard, may be quite soon).
