The 2011 Delhi International Arts Festival starts today. Sufi night at Purana Qila 6:30pm tomorrow. Free entry. Who’s interested? #openvite
@rashmiswamy Haha, thank you very much!
@pricelessjunk Aw, shucks. Keep some snacks handy up on your floor too then.
@Fine_Whining Ah yes, suspected you were referring to the budget airlines. Speaking of gujjus, you should watch ‘The Loins of Punjab’.
@pricelessjunk :) So did you end up eating something or not? I remember the days when I couldn’t bring myself to have a meal at those hours.
@pricelessjunk Arrey no, you should also find something to satisfy that hunger. Make a meal of it if necessary!
@pricelessjunk I just finished a plate of rajma chawal…
@BBlessy Oh, nevermind. Should’ve made my way through the timeline before asking. :)
“Chariots of Fire”, “Lap Dance”, that bad eh Times of India?
@BBlessy Joining us for the comedy night at Jukebox Café, Nehru Place?
@DilliBelle Okay, but only because of ze puppy face.
@pricelessjunk Those trips don’t really count, do they? It’s the same case with Calcutta for me. It teases me every time I visit.
@pricelessjunk Right? By the way, you should travel to Delhi sometime. There’s so much to unravel here.
@ap00rv Site downtime is part of the experience. Mistakes happen, but this is why we dislike “Coming Soon”. Don’t ship until you’re ready.
@ap00rv Days! What are they, Tumblr?
@gonsalves_r Changing from? Reason(s)?
@sonix15 Ooh. That new Mac envy.
@sonix15 What took you so long?
@pricelessjunk Yes, especially under sufficient, uniform lighting. And this is for a 3 year old model!
@pricelessjunk Camera phone shots, incidentally, as are the ones in my latest post (Barsana).
@lokallobaat Yup, quite decent. Not surprised though. They really are setting the bar for music production and handling in India.
@lokallobaat Haha, totally, now that you mention it. Whattay match up!
@lokallobaat None that I’m aware of.
Dare to [fucking] think beyond paneer.
Dare to [fucking] think beyond chicken.
The vegetarian enchilada at Chili’s (Ambience, Vasant Kunj) can be better described as paneer roll. Massively disappointing.
@pricelessjunk Yes, figured. :)
Set in Myriad Pro, of course.
Half expected the camera and ‘Bio’ to point to your photoblog and your about page.
In the 24 hours since I realised I was addicted to Typekit, they’ve redesigned their browser & added Brandon Grotesque(!) to their library.
@lokallobaat Shabaash mere cheeteh!
Dil Se… on a cool, dark, quiet night. Therapy for the agitated soul.
Addicted to Typekit.
I have to say this: Twitter’s new inline tweet expansion is awesome. So long fixed (ugh) sidebar, you will not be missed.
Recent @miranjdesign project collaborations that went public today:
@TimesofBullshit Very super. :) Noticed they put this out close to 4 years back!
European folk from America. With a trumpet.
@TimesofBullshit Fantastic! How did you come across this?
@vrinda_m I agree. One of those pleasant surprises because it turned out so much better than its cover/veneer.
Friends don’t let friends lowercase abbreviations.
@xAbhishek Wonder what they were thinking/smoking there.
There’s something about the simplicity of rural food served on pattals (dried leafs) that makes me forgive the stench & dirt.
For a while.
@rashmiswamy Has now been watched. Much to take in, but Wes Anderson sure knows how to handle family dynamics, doesn’t he?
@keeperofthekeys Aww. :)
@umadamle :) The startup goes as startups go: unpredictably. Wild, boring, fun ride. We’re looking for designers & devs to join us.
“@_karan: <आकाशवाणी> आप iOS 5 में हिन्दी कीबोर्ड को Settings > General > Keyboards में जाकर चालू कर सकते हैं। </आकाशवाणी>”
Help: I’ve completed roughly 10 viewings each of The Darjeeling Limited & Fantastic Mr. Fox. Which Wes Anderson film should I move to next?
@pricelessjunk Ooh. Good luck!
@pricelessjunk No problem. What’s cooking?
@nimitnshah I did, and that’s what I replied to: The world is “clearing out the old to make way for the new.”
@nimitnshah Don’t remember the exact numbers. Few of my friends did go though. Liked it.
@nimitnshah The world is “clearing out the old to make way for the new.”
@nimitnshah It’s that live performance, right? Was crazy expensive when he came to Delhi.
Jagjit Singh on the @miranjdesign HQ stereo today.
What pisses me is plagiarism. @rs2802
@gonsalves_r Nah, I’m not holding my breath. Just losing a bit of respect for a few.
@immortalmechano But hey, hope you’re enjoying your new chapter!
@gonsalves_r Multiple cases that have recently come to light.
@immortalmechano They certainly need a lesson. In fact, I think a big part of the fault lies with the culture prevalent at colleges here.
If copy off the web then you should be the first to know how easy it is to locate the original source. Think of your shame if nothing else.
Saddened by plagiarism & disregard for authorship by ‘new-age’ creative ‘professionals’ in India.
All this talk of ethics, morals—for what?
@rakeshrach Thanks Rakesh. Stepped back and changed direction yesterday. Sharper focus, more constrains, looming deadline.
@_karan Thanks Karan.
@xAbhishek Good decision.
@xAbhishek That is both wonderful and sad. Oh man…
@DilliBelle Thanks! It’s the least we could do.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
@souvikdg Woops. Sorry for the error.
@5anket Happy budday Patel saab!
‘Rockstar’ audio CD found amongst shoes in the rack by the window. @Flipkart delivers! Aaand I’m a few beers down. Boy oh boy!
.@souvikdg on ‘Coming Soon / Under Construction’ sites:
Dark alley, thug attack.
Batman appears & says, “Just a sec coming soon.”
@gonsalves_r Things have improved quite a bit since that post. The biggest hiccup in getting our LLP off the ground was the bank account.
@xAbhishek ‘Batman: Under the Red Hood’ was awesome! Thanks a lot for bring it to my attention.
@xAbhishek There’s 1 Cafe Lounge. It appeared quite decent when I’d gone for the comedy night. Blues bar is way too loud for conversations.
@nimitnshah Jo Bhi Main, Dichotomy of Fame, Kun Fayakun, Saadda Haq, Aur Ho…
@nimitnshah Long time since we heard this kind of diversity in a single Rahman album. A little early for a verdict, but hooked so far. You?
@souvikdg Well not personally, no. But say you were to name a kid today, would you not have domain name availability as a prerequisite?
@souvikdg You say “soon will come” only because you’re a while away from having kids. Otherwise we’re already there!
@lokallobaat Haha, I meant to ask why you were getting off at New Delhi. Assumed you would’ve parked your car there.
@SlainPorcelain Cool. Sometime during the week. Ta!
So the capital walla M.A.S is (finally?) on Twitter. Who knew? @proustmetro
@SlainPorcelain I know, I know, been through your portfolio. :)
Btw, we’re actually looking for a graphic designer to collaborate with.
Not the “Shoot this bunny to win an iPad” types I hope.
@SlainPorcelain I wish ugly ads were restricted to work time. But no, they follow you everywhere.
@DilliBelle That’s my default state yo!
I love how the majority of the worst ads on a webpage are pre-emptively removed by virtue of them using Flash, and me blocking Flash.
