Listen to these Sounds of Mother Earth

On a recent trip to an ‘isolated mountain’, I happened to realize how insignificant we are in this vastness of space. Traveling at the speed of light, it would take almost 100,000 years to cross the Milky Way. So if you imagine a particle of dust upon this gargantuan planet, you are still nowhere near to perceive how infinitesimally small a position we occupy in this universe. Yet, here on Earth, not everyone of us are reinforced when we think about our place in this space. Some of us even dip ourselves in the faith that Earth is flat and everything else around us is revolved around this celestial being to cope with this implausible vastness. But in the grand scheme of things, the truth is, we are just too small. Reflecting on this vastness and our insignificance within this universe often leads to a philosophical question and that is: Should one feel dreary for being too small? Because this idea of banality gives an immense spur to nihilism, that’s for sure. For all we …

Of Swan Lake

Back when I was a kid, another fascinating thing about an animated series was the music. The weekends were full of joints from Justice League, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, Gargoyles, Cédric, Oswald, Bob the Builder, Noddy, Looney Tunes and many others that I probably don’t even remember the name of. Back when there was not really a thing called internet to take over the control of your attention span. No annoying notifications from your IG or Twitter to ponder upon. So everything you would do, especially, aesthetically, you would do in absolute wonder. You know the Richard David James’ quote, “The holy grail for a music fan is to hear music from another planet, which has not been influenced by us whatsoever. Or, even better, from lots of different planets. The closest we got to that was before the Internet, when people didn’t know of each other’s existence. Now, that doesn’t really happen.” There was a minimal beauty in grasping an album by heart. The one album that you’d know every word of or …

The Anatomy of Ghost Movies

It goes like this: it’s about time you know very well you’re going to regret afterwards but you do it anyway. “The door creaks open, they always do. something comes up.” A smashing sound makes you almost fall off the couch or bed. Now you’re having trouble getting to the bathroom or closing your eyes because every time you try either one of them you imagine the ghost that you just laid your eyes upon. THE LORD BLESS THEE because you need it more than anything right now. And you have to wake up early for the school tomorrow. As you grow up it becomes quite conventional. The ghost comes, poses for the camera for a real long hour and eventually kill everyone in the family or house. Yeah something like that. The same song and dance. Nothing more or less. And if you want anything more than this you need a good ghost. The one who doesn’t kill people. AHHH, I don’t know if you really wanna watch them. So you become bored of …
