Cosmo Kramer - The Assman

I was watching 'Seinfeld - Merv Griffin Show' yesterday night and I decided to dedicate atleast one of my blogger posts to the Legendary 'Cosmo Kramer' a.k.a Dr. Van Nostrand.

There are 2 types of people in this world, among those who regularly watch sitcoms. They are Seinfeld fans and Friends fans. If you are a die-hard Friends fan, there is still a possibility of appreciating Seinfled and become a seinfeld fan. But once you become a Seinfeld fan, you will probably never become a fan of any other sitcom. Guess its the Famous Seinfeld curse, which extends to its fans also and not just the actors.

Well, coming back to Merv Griffin Show, its just simply amazing the way Cosmo Kramer character picks up the old furnitures and Tv-show setup from the trash and creates a Virtual talk show environment in his own house and invites people(ofcourse his neighbours and friends) to participate in his fantasy. I just love this character 'Kramer' and his Kramerisms(his signature sliding in act when he enters Jerry's house is my numero uno). He is the life of the entire show. I can't even imagine Seinfeld w/o kramer(well i can extend that to every main character :-o). Such is the genius of Michael Richards who brought this character to life.
Kramer and his fantasies, his new and bizzare money generating ideas like collecting cans for recycling in Michigan state or Coffee table book and so many others just makes you think, if this character were in the real world how wierdly creative he would have been.

To sum it all up, Goerge describes Kramer's lifestyle in episode - The visa

"Kramer goes to a fantasy camp..??. His whole life is a fantasy camp. People should plunk down two-thousand dollars to live like him for a week. Do nothing, fall ass-backwards into money, mooch food off your neighbors, and have sex without dating. *That's* a fantasy camp!"

Hail the genius of Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, for having created Cosmo Kramer !

Love actually is all around you

Well.. that was the tagline for a stupid but funny, bollywood type romantic comedy which Sumit(my friend and ex-roomie) would call a total chick flick. And here I am writing my review for this movie in another one of my Boring posts, which completely lacks imagination and creativity. Oh.. wat the hell... I need to update my blog with something.
I was surprised to see such a heavy weight cast which incl. liam neeson, hugh grant, colin firth, emma thomson and so and so forth...
The film started out to be just yet another romantic comedy which wouldnt make sense in real life. Totally stupid at times and very loose story line with lot of loopholes and many things unexplained. But in the end, i really felt good after watching this movie. So I would say its a feel good movie. As usual High grant being the king of such Romantic english comedies takes the lead role and also that of the narrator. He always gets lucky with his dialogues in many of his movies, catchy and funny at times. But I liked Chick who plays his assistant. She was Sexy and Chubby. I especially liked Mark(Friend of married couple)'s character.

Message was very simple - No matter wat, Love is all around you. Something that is definitely needed with so much violence all around the world. Didnt mean to end in a philoshical way, but it just happened.

So if you havent watched the movie yet, I suggest its a good timepass and you wouldnt regret watching it.

Sexual Harassment in Indian Court of law


Can you beleive this? Sexual harassment right in the middle of the Court of Law. How low can the judge stoop down to? I sincerely feel sorry for this Lady lawyer. Only goes to show that Our judicial system, a corrupt system heavily influenced by Money and Politics, needs a big revamp.
