Sometimes you're the windshield; sometimes you're the bug.

yesterday while coming home, as the bus was waiting @ the turn into old madras road during a red light, suddenly felt 'ALIVE'... i know, it kinda sounds stupid, but 'm sure everyone wud've felt that way sometime or the other....'n ofcourse things that makes one feel alive will vary from person to person...it may be finger lickin' food...chocs...coming face to face with nature's beauty...'n i suppose yesterday it was probably the last one....with everything beautifully wet from the recent downpour 'n the flamin' red gulmohar trees made me feel glad that i was alive 'n to be there...after a week or so of feeling down, this felt good....
that happy mood continued for some time, until sometime during night, when i suddenly felt like in dumps...it was weird in the sense that nothing drastic happened which would've made me feel that way...hmm...may be it was everything...the cumulative effect of small small tiny things...
neways this post is not to be abt my mood swings....this is just the rambling me laying down the context for what follows next...'n yea i know u r thinking "this post ain't ended still?! " :)

So feeling down 'n all, i made my way downstairs, took the remote from my sleeping bro on the couch...the Knight Riders innings had just finished, so started surfing channels 'n hit on VH1, to see Gods of Guitar featuring Pink Floyd! The show was on how 'The Dark Side of the Moon', came to be the way it was, as in the entire making of it, thoughts/ideas behind each song,sound....Gilmour,Waters,Mason,Alan Parson...basically everyone involved in the making talk through how they came to develop each song...
when they started showing 'on the run', how they developed it, i suddenly realized how much the sound is similar to Vangelis' spiral...hmm...make it the otherway round as this came first...so it was in many respects a cult album which showcased the sounds of the future...
watching the episode, i felt better...somehow listening to floyd always settles my mind, even when i don't know whats troubling it! :)

well neways it was a gr8 episode but the sad part was i only caught it @ the end :( i sincerely hope they play it again...'n should i even bother telling how brilliant DSoM album is? :)
'n if other episodes are going to be as good as this, with artists like Hendrix,Clapton,Knopfler,Satriani... this is one series not to be missed...
speaking of which, i think its time for the show, so...

Adios
