Well, it seems Life won’t be back next year. I have not seen it on official channels yet but then I might have missed it. News travel slow around this part of the world. If they ever do that is.

Life goes on. Hopefully the series too

I’ve had an immensely long and mind-numbing day today so I’ll have to put off everything till next day. If you have not seen Ellen’s (Degeneres) awesome stand-up about procrastination watch it, it is hilarious! As usual. And I just kept on thinking ‘she is talking about me :P’ . Yes, some might say I am lazy…Let’s get Zen instead shall we? (more…)

“People with opinions just go around bothering each other.” – Buddha

Hence blogging is Zen-ish 😀

I’m gonna make at least this post Zen though. Here is a story to think about today.

During the civil wars in feudal Japan, an invading army would quickly sweep into a town and take control. In one particular village, everyone fled just before the army arrived – everyone except the Zen master. The general went to the temple to see this master.

This post is dedicated to Life … The NBC cop series Life that I fell in love with about a year ago. And now I hear it might get cancelled! That would be a shame and a rather strange professional decision on NBC’s part. But I am not going to go into the whole viewer rating/time slot thing right now. Okay I will but only briefly. Just a tiny little question to NBC’s scheduling: do you honestly expect Life to pick up more viewers when you put it up against Idol and Lost and give a damn about properly promoting it?…anger vented, moving on…

I will play now the role of the devoted believer and will attempt to convert you to be a fan too 😉 .

One day Chuang Tzu and a friend were walking by a river. “Look at the fish swimming about,” said Chuang Tzu, “They are really enjoying themselves.”

“You are not a fish,” replied the friend, “So you can’t truly know that they are enjoying themselves.”

“You are not me,” said Chuang Tzu. “So how do you know that I do not know that the fish are enjoying themselves?”
