The recent happenings in Bangalore have had an adverse affect on me. I’ve been thinking…what if today was it? Fortunately, I wasn’t the only one with the thought. My old friend was so shaken up about Friday that I decided to meet up with him last night. My existential loneliness, my doubts about whether I fit in the human race would be shoved someplace, not so pretty, for the evening and I would find short-lived but blissful friendship in the company of a friend. I really didn’t expect ending the night with a crush on him. So now it’s time to give my friend a little nickname- hmm…Dex. I used to call him that when we were in college. Dex and I have been great friends but we’ve also had this unusual chemistry between us for the past eight years. I met him at my college fest. He was cute and I had just dedicated three songs to him. I’m so glad I was so determined to get to know him.

Last night we had a lovely date, we laughed, we talked, we gossiped about mutual acquaintances but no stretch of imagination allows me to understand how I could have a crush on him, since the date was so ordinary! After dropping me home and then placing a kiss… on my cheek (no no, I wasn’t that lucky), things are as murky as ever. Evidently the universe has decided to complicate my life, like it wasn’t already complicated enough and in an effort to bring clarity to my life I have decided to not call him for some time. I feel so vulnerable. What's to protect me from the sticks and stones of an outrageous fortune? I think I’m just going to ground myself at home then I’ll never have to worry about having unnecessary infatuations. Don't you wish you were me? Then you could be this healthy all the time. Why didn't anyone tell me that the Gin Blossoms was the kind of band you can’t miss out on? I had never heard anyone tell me that they were so amazing that I had to check them out. The Gin Blossoms are an alternative power popster band from Tempe, Arizona and they are incredible. My favorite at the moment is ‘Until I fall away’. Their music has been out there for a long time. I just haven’t heard it, until now. This song has classic melody, delicious harmony and an unforgettable chorus, all which adds up to an obvious hit single. If for some reason, this band hasn’t made its way into your collection, check it out. This song was released a long time ago- 1994, to be precise but it’s worth another listen if you skipped over at it at some point. You might just hear flashes of your own life in it’s notes.

Won't call him?? women! can not understand them! :)

BTW where do you get your CDs from? I mean are "Gin Blossoms" available at any of the music stores in B'lore?

Eveline said...

hahahaha... it's not women! it's just me. I dont get me either.

Most of the music i listen to now are by small bands that i stumble onto online. I have a couple of tracks by the Gin Blossoms that i can send to you. If you can find their album in music stores, then please let me know.I haven't had any luck.

Have a great week ahead.

So, i've sent u a couple of the tracks. Do give them a listen. Tc.

Ummm. Sounds like you're complicating things more than you should be. But hey - that's advice from a guy (and you know how [simple] we are!)

I haven't had time to read too many posts (red on black? hurts a little) but I'll do that later. However, good choice in music you have! Especially liked Arnel Pineda's cover of Roxanne! (Stumbled upon that on an old post of yours.)

Hard to find too many Journey fans around here! Love their early albums though! Good stuff!

And finally, I see I've made a blogroll! Yay!

Eveline said...

Thanks for the advice.. i suppose.

Red on black is my favorite color combination..But i guess, everyone's entitled to an opinion.

Arnel Pineda's rendition of Roxanne is one of my favourites. Love his vocals.Thanks for stopping by... :)

Everyone's entitled to an opinion and seeing as in it's your blog, you're entitled to more than that. But the question I always ask here is this (and this isn't related just to the choice of colors of fonts) - "Are you blogging for yourself or for others?"

I'm guessing your answer would be that you blog for yourself. A lot of people do. But some, and I would fall there, don't. And if the main point of your blogging is for people to read, then I feel it makes sense to consider their opinions too. Just consider, not necessarily conform to.

Getting a bit rambly here, but that's my $0.02!

I think my blog is a bit of both. While i love to air my thoughts
and opinions on this blog it is also about the comments and
what i can get from the readers that matter.
That's what i'm in it for, the interaction. Thanks for your opinion.
