Song For The Day Ends

I was thinking about stuff about my blog and what I wanted to do with it. I have decided to kill off my daily “Song for the day” section! I have been thinking about doing this for a very long time but I have enjoyed selecting a song for the day and posting a pic of that artist / band off some link. Also in several cases, the song mentioned will mirror my mood at that particular moment or day or will reflect an event that happened that day!

I have had some trouble with the pics part and that is one of the reasons why I have decided to kill off the “song for the day”. Another reason is that I think it is a bit silly now! I felt that I just had to end it. Songs that I select as the song of the day cannot be repeated and that is just not done. Besides, everyone who comes to the site can see what songs I have listened to lately by looking at the tool from Lastfm in the middle column.

I will still blog a lot about music and embedding video clips from Youtube & others. Sometimes it won’t be just a song….you’ll see! And I am still going to feature artists & review albums, so it won’t be a huge change, just a different approach.

So today will mark the death of this wonderful part of my blogging life. I started doing this in December 2002 in my first Blogger account. Goodbye my friend; you were loved & you will be missed.

Coughing & Shuffling

I have this nasty cough bothering me since late last night. I knew that I should have stayed back home and rested for another day because, without recovering atleast 85% and sitting in the air conditioned office will not be good for me. As it is I was just 60% recovered. I did my work, as of it as I could and it was an ok day, except for my discomfort.

I enjoyed listening to my new Ipod shuffle; I managed to store 231 songs in it’s flash memory through i-Tunes yesterday morning. I do hate the fact that I have to get my songs through the i-Tunes software and cannot just copy the songs that I want directly onto the drive of the i-pod. But after testing & trying out the i-Tunes method 3 times, I have now got the hang of it. And I am enjoying having all that great music with me wherever I go. It’s a blast!

Nothing solid has come through from any of the job applications that I sent out but I was expecting that. The first one that I tried may work out but it will take time as they are in the middle of a huge project now and finishing that is their top priority. The second one, I had no hopes since I learnt that they require an accounts & commerce background for the job I was applying for. So I dropped that. The third one is a complete mystery : it’s a company based in Pune that is setting up shop over in Kakkanad. Two people I know were asked to go for interviews there and although they were not selected, these guys raved about the facility. However, if you look into their company website you wouldn’t give them a second thought – it is so shabbily done! Just a plain white page with company address and a cell phone number & name of the contact person for all information seekers!

Song for the day – “Walk The Dog” – ANTHONY GOMES

Fisher signs contract extention

The Ottawa Senators locked up one of their best two-way players to a long-term deal Monday, signing centre Mike Fisher to a US$21-million, five-year extension. Fisher had 22 goals and 26 assists for 48 points last season, his seventh with the Senators. The 27-year-old Peterborough, Ont., native played a key role in Ottawa’s run to the Stanley Cup final last spring. He supplied plenty of grit at both ends of the ice and recorded 10 points (5-5) and 73 hits in 20 playoff games. Fisher was drafted by the Senators in the second round (44th overall) of the 1998 NHL entry draft. In 384 career regular season games, he has 192 points (92-100) and 314 penalty minutes. Fisher was nominated for the Selke Award as the NHL’s top defensive forward in 2005-06. He finished third in the voting, behind Jere Lehtinen and winner Rod Brind’Amour. Fisher, who was slated to become an unrestricted free agent next summer, will earn US$1.5 million this season. He will earn $6 million in 2008-’09, $4 million annually for three seasons after that and $3 million in 2012-’13.
