Im Calvin!!!

I’m Calvin
The most lovable kid on the most lovable comic strip in the world – you are best known for your unsuccessful ‘dastardly plots’, your sense of humor and your extended vocabulary. Outgoing, rambunctious, unrestrained – there is a little bit of you in every one of us. “It’s a magical world, Hobbes… let’s go exploring.”

thats what the facebook app had to say about me 🙂 Before you use it, i should warn you that it forces you to invite more friends ( about 20 over a period of 3 days)if you want to check the results. thats quite a spoilsport.

Comics and me

so here we are again. another study holidays. another boring set of days.

ok so here is one of things that got me interested. Comic Books. Yes, Comic Books. i’ve always been a fan of Comics; Marvel and DC. Xmen and alternate stories especially. Read quite a few and bought whenever i could. but the fact that comics are very rare to come by in India i had to be content with the books in the Local libraries. the only fault with that was that you couldnt get to read continuous series. ok so the other day when i visited Demonoid i came across torrent links for COMICS!! i didnt know there were people out there who actually scanned comics and put them on torrents. well being a customer of BSNL ‘s HOME 250 plan i’ve never gone hunting for torrents if you think that i was ignorant or a noob or something. And so was completely surprised to find the torrents.

Ok so how do you read these comics?? they usually come in compressed formats: zip, rar, ace or tar archive file. i thought you needed to unzip those files and then somehow read them. well i dint have the time that day after i downloaded my first comic, DC Universe 0. after 2 days, during a casual conversation about loafing during study holidays , i came to know that my friend was reading Naruto Manga. thats how i came across “Cdisplay“, an awesome reader to read comics. It auto decompresses the files and allows you to read the comic. read more at the page.

ok so here’s to the future!! will be reading more soon. sent the files to a couple of friends to get me some more as i cant do it myself. something to wait for these hols. apart from more SouthPark Episodes 🙂

Currently very interested with Final Crisis-a new series on DC.

Thanks to: Sindhu for the Demonoid invitation code ( even though i hadnt asked 😀 )  and to Rahul for letting me know about Cdisplay.

where do i begin??

where do i begin??

lot of things going on lately which has left me so darned busy. long days.. reach home after 7 now( my fault), auditioning for Incident (am in Dumb Charardes , potpourri and wordgames so far-the fault why am late), dropping off in HDL,MC and that one class of CS, etc, etc…

Of late, i restarted using Google reader to keep track of feeds.. which will also explain why ive not been commenting on you people’s blogs more often.. u know its just that im so lazy and there’s way too much to read. Also started subscribing to Comics on it, hence 2 of you will have to adjust with my excessing comic strip sharing 🙂 ( reading PHD comics, Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert..)

Then there’s of course the quiz auditions on Monday and the article for the College magazine to be written. Man!!! do i have my hands full!!! so full that i guess i will have to stop reading Shantaram.. renewed it last weekend and havnt read a word over 200 pages 😦

the only good thing that i ve noticed lately is that im being more like myself 🙂 deciding to give that “nice boy” tag a bit of a nudge 🙂

p.s. if any of you people believe that EC students are nerds… well u havnt met our 2nd year bunch of nutcases.. check out this 20 second video from Vigneshwar containing a crazed moment from the last trip . sadly , i wasnt there 😦 eventhough the subs totally suck balls there’s hardly a dull moment in coll 🙂

/reflecting on the fact that ive used too many smilies in this post
