Ringtone Jam

I am a big fan of music. All kinds of music.
My day doesn't feel complete without it.
It helps me work better and always puts me in the right mood.

When people ask me about what kind of music I like listening to, I never really have an answer.
Because I like almost everything.
And can listen to just about anything depending on my mood.

But have you ever felt like the music at a certain point in time was so good that nothing could top it?
And then something does.
It's pretty amazing when you think about how there are an infinite number of sounds that can be created and that we will always have new music.
And how great is that?

I always wished I could contribute to that.
But I can't play any instrument besides the keyboard (and that too just happy birthday) and a harmonium (a keyboard with a fan) and I always wish I could learn to play a new instrument.

I've always wanted to learn the saxophone though while breathing during yoga I figured out that I probably don't have the lung capacity for it.

Or maybe I could play something random like a theremin.
No keys. Just pure luck is all I need.

Or how cool would it be if I got myself one of those finger drum pads (that is what they're called right?).
My neighbours would hate me but I would also be the coolest person I know.

Check out this guy, he just made the iPhone ringtone cool.
It will make you want to Move like Jagger.

Or maybe that's just me.

Hello again

Guess who's back, back again.
The Rain is back, tell a friend.

Ok, so rain isn't a person but I just wanted to sing my made up song.
And anyway when I sing any lyrics, they never make sense.
So why start now?

Photo by me.
If you were in Bombay this morning, you experienced your first rain of 2014.
Now I'm not the biggest fan of rain but I love how it's back every June.
Like it's keeping a promise.
Like Terminator.

This year I'm actually pretty happy with the early arrival of rain since I pretty much was ready to slap summer in the face.
And everything looks cleaner and greener.

So how do I truly feel about rain? Deep within my heart?
Well, rain and I can be friends as long as I'm indoors.
And if I'm going out, a little heads up would be great.
But, as we all know weather forecasts are almost never correct.
Which sort of defeats the purpose of a forecast.
And that's risky business, people.


But then, I came across the Authentic Weather App.
Now they may call themselves Authentic and sound fancy and true but they're just like any other weather app. 
Sometimes it's right. Sometimes it's wrong.
Which sounds a little like me.
Which isn't such a bad thing.

Here's to a good monsoon, no water problems, and to feeling like global warming hasn't affected us yet.

It isn't raining yet in Bombay.
Which is not great.

But it is pouring classes at Tangerine Arts Studio.
And that's just super!

So, if you're into fitness and want to take an exercise or dance class, you should check out the June schedule.
They've got a wide range of classes to choose from - Zumba, Yoga, Belly dance, Salsa, Bollywood Contemporary dance, Indian classical music & Pilates.
And fun weekend workshops too.

So, this season don't sit at home because it's raining and you can't go jogging anymore.
And don't believe that watching fitness shows is going to help you get in shape.
Unless the shape you're aiming for is that of a potato.

Get fit this monsoon.
