The sexy lie is not a good one

TED (Technology Entertainment Design) is a favorite source of enlightenment for many people all over the world. Today i want to direct attention to a particular TED talk titled ‘The sexy lie’ given by Caroline Heldman. Why stop & take notice of this talk ? Here’s why:

1) Enlightenment on the lie- Sexual objectification is empowering women
2) Her dexterous use of logic,rationale, facts & research exemplifying what women can achieve by focusing in the right direction
3) Her compelling passion
4) She delivers a resounding appeal in a commanding tenor that just arrests attention.

Shout out to all marketers,advertisers and media agencies out there who really ought to internalize the message.

“You are the architects of your future & sometimes architects have to demolish paradigms to build a better world….”

 

Even if you don’t care too much about this idea,my suggestion is to listen to it because you might just pick up good points on how to make a successful, impactful  presentation.

7 Things Every Woman Should Accomplish In Her 20s

Awesome post! All us 20something ladies -Here this is our list right here.

Thought Catalog

1. Asking for a raise.

The truth is simply that many of your male colleagues — and superiors — are going to estimate a bit less of you, even without realizing it. And they’re going to assume that you won’t have the, erm, spine to ask them for what you rightfully deserve. After all, it is statistically much less likely for a woman to fight and argue her way up the corporate ladder. Which makes it all the more essential that you be the person who walks right into the corner office and demands to be paid what you are worth. It’s not fair that we have to fight harder, but if we’re going to play their game, we might as well go big or go home.

2. Turning someone down who deserves it.

There are any number of reasons why we might stay in a relationship that is not…

I discovered a really incredible Math Blog today! Don’t click away because math & cool do not appear to juxtapose well together for some. For those of you who clicked because you saw the word “strip” in the title ermmm wrong blog, you might wanna close this page right now.

(basically you have to now just so you earn the right to be included in the numbers of smart primates- If curiosity wont work, Ill guilt trip you people ,Youll thank me later :P)

Check out this superb video and if you are not hooked or atleast in a state of medium level marvel, at the least….umm well hand over those opposable thumbs back 😉

She also created a very imaginative story using the mobius band. See below:

PSY is back!! Gentlemen & Ladies look out ;)

 

PSY is back with his new video “Gentleman” !!! & about time ! My musings were starting to get pretty serious there 😉

If you havn’t already watched it ,do so now for fun, mindless ENTERTAINMENT.

Ok so I watch his new video & I just wanna know this-

How come he gets adulation for dancing & singing & acting like a child !! while i just know we “real world adults” can’t get away lightly with doing this insanely awesome stuff in the real world!

I bet he is popular cause we all kinda fantasize about acting crazy ass erratic, unpredictably crazyyy & dance like no one is looking & make funny animal faces, but we are kinda scared we wont be taken seriously once we stop…but he is so doing it, & rocking it 🙂

I imagine some of us , while watching his videos are like OMG!! I always wanted to shout in a library,point at random people,walk with a determined expression & then point & then break out in a little jig like Ballu the bear from Talespin!, Scream my name while pumping my hands with full gusto & rapping arcane stuff!!

<Catching my breath here>

..act like an ass in a public place, be my stupidest in front of a member of the opposite sex i find attractive (i mean not my usual brand of unwitting stupid, but you know like decided, determined silly stupid!!Damn that has to be EMPOWERING in a contorted,foggy,inexplicable for obvious reasons kinda way….)

Geez i think this guy just revealed my personal deranged bucket list of things to do to myself…
Now to get a sponsor for all this …hmmm…

Neway I do declare,(very PSY inspired) – I AM A MO**** F****** LADY!!!

Still hiding my inner child behind innocuous asterisks there 😉 Enjoy the video though, while i just scoot over to the side there & invent my own chicken dance.

 

The Gangnam Style!


Gangnam Style
is the name of a hugely viral video I stumbled across today & boy it’s an entertaining fad that’s  making waves since it was put up on Youtube in July 2012 cause it’s just so strange!!

 Gangnam is a city in Seoul in Korea which has an extremely wealthy population! & the video seems to glorify (or make a parody) of the lifestyle there. Whatever be the underlying reason for this song , I give a thumbs up  cause it made me laugh !

How I came across it:

Comments on a Justin Beiber & Usher Concert’s photograph on Facebook doing a silly dance step led many people  to comment  “GANGNAM Style”  which stoked my curiosity. I googled it & whoooaaa!!

The pic that started my search

That’s how I was introduced to this crazy ass video . It is chaotic, ridiculous, clownish with dramatic (being kind here)dance steps very similar to some South Indian dance moves!  

Unique Selling Proposition – A la Gangnam Style!!

  • Funny dance steps! Described by a youtube viewer as “Dry Humping the air!” (Very articulate huh? ;))
  • Peppy beats & a funky tune !
  • Asian Exotica added for good measure!
  • Viewer will at least once ,through the course of the video experience the, “ WTF did I just see!?!” moment . Those are sprinkled generously in this video with a huge dollop of parody of the Bling Set (The ostentatious rich)
  • This funny plumpish guy dancing with abandon declaring to the world that hell yeah! this is the way to do it people!! Rich, shiny, I don’t give a damn, Ill make you wanna dance with me is blatantly, ridiculously entertaining!!
  • Last time a man danced with abandon this way it went viral too!  Remember “Where the hell is Matt?” I am beginning to think there is a link here somewhere. Anthropologists might want  to study this fascination !!  Well this time it is Park Jae Sang also known as PSY with his Korean song (& dance)  showing us how to do it Gangnam style!

How viral is it?!!

VERY!

With 181,933,393  hits!! Someone ought to take Notes & learn the finer nuances of “The Gangnam style!!”

People from everywhere are using it in FB comments

It’s become a  popular slang! Check out Urban dictionary for Gangnam style

 It has even spawned a whole lot of other slangs. An interesting one is “The Open Condom Style” cause well that’s what the lyrics sound like in English!! I kid you not! I can’t make this stuff up people 😀

So do you think you got what it takes to rock Gangnam Style? 😉

 

P.S.  Check out  this vid on Teen’s reaction on watching Gangnam Style … Some Interesting comments 😉 

Its a SUNday :D

Have not really written anything new, but I do try to share one thing on Sunday….so I’ll tell you about why my Sunday was a good one.

1) I saw the movie “The Departed”, yeah I know it was released like eons ago, in my defence I am a sporadic movie watcher 😀

2) The true highlight of my day was this beautiful piece of music shared by a friend of mine today. It’s a surreal but inspiring coming together of dubstep & violin. Below I describe the sequence of emotions I felt hearing this piece:

a. Skeptical of this guy’s ability to do justice to Ellie’s Dubstep with a violin.

b. Getting a hang of the pace

c. The pace builds , you start believing, you start moving

d. You get goosepimples!!

e. You hear the piece 3 times

f. You decide you need to get out , walk to enjoy the music.

g. You even manage to find an isolated spot & do a lill dance for the sheer beauty of it!

h. You keep hearing the track

i. You blog about it , cause this beautiful track must be shared & heard

The Man in the Arena- A Speech

One of  the most inspiring & moving speeches i have come across, “The Man in the Arena”  is the title of the speech given by the US president Theodore Roosevelt at the Sorbonne in Paris, France on April 23, 1910. The speech is notable for the passage:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
