Idea Star Singer: Bad Timing?

June 24, 2007 13 comments

From Mani’s comment on my earlier post:

I am fed up of hearing the contestants saying that they were sick, had sore throat and fever, why make excuses? I feel that people making these excuses should get 50 points reduced from their total score.

I had also noticed this aspect of Idea Star Singer competition where many participants claim to have a sore throat or chest infection. It is irritating for the viewers, but I am wondering if there is another side to this proverbial coin. Monsoon rains are in full swing now in Kerala and the climate is very wet and chilly. Could it be that at least some of those people really have a sore throat.. what say?

James Brown

December 26, 2006 Leave a comment

The Hardest Working Man in Show Business passed away at 73 – on Christmas day. Like everything else about the man, he made his exit also in grand style.

I haven’t heard much from James Brown besides his popular hits. I know his music mostly by the influence it had on later day musicians I admired – Micheal Jackson, Prince, David Bowie, Mick Jagger etc.

May his soul rest in peace.
