On Blogger Themed Stuff

Somehow I landed on KM's page about blogger themed stuff that carries on a conversation started earlier on Scout's post about why not to fall for a blogger(post not available now). The idea was to substitute popular movies/music/dialog with blogger themed words. Hilarious stuff in the comments, do read. BTW, my entry was "There's something about Bloggy".

On Censorship, Toon Porn Episode

So the creators of Savitabhabhi have decided to end the Save Savita campaign, and thus India's first toon porn star will cease to exist soon.
Background, the govt of India in its infinite wisdom decided that a porn toon website posed some sort of problem to India, and banned it. The creators tried to organize a campaign to defy and/or overturn the ban, but have finally succumbed to the pressure.
Censorship, censorship. When will the Indian govt grow up and understand that if someone wants to be a pervert(not that following toon porn is perversion, but let's consider it is for the sake of the argument), one should have that choice!

On "Dead Like Me"

Dear Readers,
Have been away for quite some time, and it's high time the blog got a little bit resuscitated. So here I am, briefly.
So there is this t.v. serial that used to air a while back called "Dead Like Me". The premise is that an 18 year old girl is killed by a falling toilet seat from a space station, and turns into a grim reaper. Grim Reapers are undead people, with physical bodies but face different from the one they had when they were living. Their job is to reap people's soul just before they die, and escort the soul to its final destination.
The final destination appears as a bright white light, the shape is customized to the soul, e.g., a child might see a carnival, an adventurer might see a cliff from which to jump off. The series deals with her coming to terms with her new job, the trials and tribulations the job entails, and in general a coming of age story.

The point of interest is the shape the light form takes. It is intimately connected to the desires and feelings and characteristics of the departed soul. What would yours look like?

Did you ask about mine? That's easy, it would be a huge library full of books and dvd's and a computer with high speed-unlimited download broadband internet connection.
