    Oh just tried to post my nerd score(98) and failed, guess I am not that nerdy after all.

    Loved omkara btw, will catch it again. Felt it was a watershed moment for commercial hindi cinema. Hopefully it will inspire people to make better cinema and not more of the kjo variety. And as a mark of protest am not going to watch Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, unless its for free ;-).

    btw… what do you think of this template? I am loving it more and more. Clear, Neat, Simple and yet not boring

    this is clearer than the older one, this looks more post modern, especially the graphic at top is very sparse but still classy, as if its the 70’s and we are imagining the future, and the 70’s are cool now i.e. if done well. the other one didnt seem to fit too well with the general theme of your blogs, this is much better. that much for the rant.

    trebuchet is a good font though, i dont know why its under used?

    other people reading your blog too, this is news, good news!!

    Yeah, I love this Kubrick theme. The only thing is it being the default would be used by many so I am hoping if you have suggestions about the color of the header. Thats the the only area we have to make it stand out.

    Trebuchet and Lucida Grande are the fonts of Web 2.0, I love them both latter a bit more.

    Tell me what do you think of this one.

    Yeah I have 2 people commenting whom I don’t know, quite encouraging actually.
