Here comes the rain again
dear zulfiqar & ejaz, thanks for your comments
the sound track that i mentioned may not be available in Pakistan. hardly think that the rainbow centre mafia would have got any request for OST of 'The Straight Story'
try shopping at this place and all you get is incoherant gurgling sound from a paankhao memons, that is, if you are able to make eye contact.
this is the hub of karachi music scene, sort of a distribution point and all the sound tracks that other outlets in the city get, it is from this place.
the cd covers tell a story of their own, the images are scanned but somehow they outsource the typing to some genious who went to a peela school so you have you 'alanis' written as 'al anis', thank God atleast it is not 'al anus'.
the way i got all the 'straight story' tracks was through kazaa which was fine as far as the quality is concerned but kazaa has fucked up my notebook setting with all the shareware freeware adware
so all the downloads are from last year but really good stuff, if kazaa could be set up in a secure manner, the world is just a click away, unless there is any other download service that you can share that can be used without any hassle
for something that I need really bad, i go to amazon, order it in the UK and get it shipped there and some relative carries it.
yes Ejaz there is something magical about rains in Karachi but the blog on rain i.e the complete works is somewhere lurking in the back of my mind, may be a little substance abuse would unleash it so I am waiting for this weekend, weather and the supply of goodies permitting
the showers we had last night had no suspence or buildup, it was after midnight and i was tucking in the kids and KESC reminded us that they and the monsoon are not compatible, so the rest of the night was spent lying next to my daughter telling her the story about the illmannered elephant loved to scare the animals, destroy the nests and wreck havoc with the green grass which was home to all
the animals had had enough and gang up against the elephant, the fox volunteers to use his cunning to subdue the elephant but is trampled under the huge feet, the parrot decides to bite the head and is slapped around by huge flapping ears
so the tiny ant claims that she can do the trick, everyone laughs at the ant but undettered it climbs up trunk and tickles the elephant which cannot help but sneeze till it gives up
so i make sneezing noises and my daughter's eyes light up and she chuckles her hearty laugh,
life cannot get any better than this
