#GoSleeekAsusExperience Indiblogger meet at ITC Gardenia

After a long time at Bangalore, Anoop and his Indiblogger team remember us. Thanks for inviting me at Asus Indiblogger, the first meet in 2015.

Asus brings All-in-One PC which is an awesome product for game lovers like me. I see the configuration and the smart power backup UPS inside, the sleek design which makes it worthy for buying. It has beautiful 19 inch screen and small space occupancy inside the room. I had a HCL ezeebee PC earlier a decade ago. My HCL PC is outdated because it was cumbersome to carry from home to hostel, and after education at my working location. Several times I thought to carry the PC to my location and upgrade the system. But last time I visited my home, the HCL PC was dead. I visited the customer care centre they told it will cost around 12k to get fixed. Asus Sleek All-in-one is easy to carry like a laptop.

I usually play video games using my Dell Alienware Laptop which has 14 inch screen gives me less excitement. I cannot afford an alienware large screen.

#GoSleeekAsusExperience and the Indiblogger meet, I thought its going to be my day to win a contest and grab one ASUS Gaming PC at home. Albeit there was no such contest happened last night.

I had a great time with all unknown faces, dancing, singing, rocking, head banging, and dining. I am a shy person and I interact very little with people. Its Indiblogger meets, Anoop’s team motivate me to stay social. Heads up!!!

Always love!

Fox – Gotham, (Season One) After Holiday Episodes!

I am a fan of Batman. I can’t say a big fan because in my childhood at Indian town, Basirhat, Batman was not very well known comics character in the early 90’s. It was my good fortune I got a free copy of Batman and Robin inside the Kellogg’s corn flakes pack in 1997. My first introduction with the detective had stolen my teenage heart. Since then I was lucky to order few copies of Batman comics in my nearest book shop. It was quite nostalgic, and full of hyperbole and emotion.

The recent Fox – popular TV series Gotham attracted my attention. I was very curious in Batman comics to know the backgrounds of all the criminals and masterminds. What made those psychopaths to becoming the eternal hellish villains?  This TV program fires the curiosity of the creation of Gotham, the city of crime that never sleeps.

I don’t dig a deeper hole, or any major criticism on the characters and the story. I am seeing lots of blogs already reviewing this program. It is a very good work done by the program creator, Bruno Heller. Till Season one, Episode 10 the story and creativity was speechless. May be different creative team could have been different ideas but I found maturity in developing all the characters with small facts and the dots.

But seems like the last two episodes were quite amateur in terms of storytelling. The character’s development were quite funny. Fish Mooney’s role got quite ridiculous as a gangster specially after her plans caught by Carmine Falcone. Even her overall plans to take the city under her control were like a beggar’s dream! Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin’s multiple noses got noticed by Sal Maroni on his unconsciousness made it less interesting. Dr. Leslie Thompkins was introduced in Arkham Asylum was expected on her maturity as a crime insider. Here I think the director and creative team were trying to make up their wrong selection of Barbara Kean’s character by selecting Erin Richards. Dr. Leslie Thompkins character to develop a substitute to becoming the side to James Gordon was not interesting. At the end of the Episode 12 it seemed like they enforced by the director and creative team to kiss each-other which was damn spoiler and so quick affection. Hope the Gotham team will come back with interesting stories about those criminals. Their past life might be critical and psychopathic which would make us believe the born of Batman was quite necessary.

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 30,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
