Web2.0 Song – Here Comes Another Bubble

The other day one of my friends, Ram, showed me a video by The Richter Scales. It was so hilarious that I had to blog about it. It really is what’s really happening these days in the world of web companies and the VC’s backing them.

And to top it all the songs real good, in a funny sort of way though. Just tell me what you think.

Heath Ledger Dies

News Happens. You Blog about it or you don’t but news doesn’t stop for you. And sometimes it has to be something grave about something that you’ve liked, to jerk you back into existence and start blogging again.

Heath Ledger, one of my favorite actors, was found dead in his apartment in New York with pills near his body. The Police are contemplating a possible drug overdose as an autopsy is being conducted. For a while now I was thinking of posting a small article on him. We’ll now I know thinking is not writing.What I wanted to write about was how similar four people can look. I always confused between Heath Ledger, Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon and John Cena(the wrestler). Just Google for their facial images and see for yourselves, you’ll know what I’m talking about. They look so much alike. But I guess now I have one person less in my list of confusee’s.

Whatever the role, big or small and whatever the movie good, bad and even very bad ones, Heath Ledger did them with style and a certain coolness that only he had. I’ve like watched so many of his movies and am yet to find some fault with him which I normally do with all the actors. We’ll all I can say is R.I.P dude, you rock(ed)!
