At The Age Of 35….

At age 35:

Based on a nightmarish dream, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Russian ambassador Aleksandr Borosovich Kurakin introduced the practice of serving meals in courses.

Frederic William Herschel, an English astronomer, invented the contact lens.

American sprinter Evelyn Ashford won her final Olympic gold medal at age 35, old for a sprinter.

Amedeo Avogadro developed Avogadro’s hypothesis.

Law School professor Anita Hill charged that Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas made indecent remarks to her.

Margie Profet proposed a new theory of menstruation which claims that menstruation protects against infection and won a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant.

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin achieved his life’s ambition at age 35 and wondered, what do you do after that?

Julia Child began to learn to cook.

Mozart had already created his wealth of music & stopped composing his masterpieces due to illness and died soon after.

I haven’t completed my book or learned to cook and musically I am an air guitar master at best. I haven’t been to the moon or introduced changes in serving meals and I stick to my spectacles, thank you very much. I never make indecent remarks to women, unless they want me to and once day dreaming is made an Olympic sport, I will win that gold!

My Mp3 Collection Is Now…

It’s been a while since I gave an update on my mp3 music collection. From September of 2006 I started expanding my mp3 collection, which at that time consisted of just 3GB worth of mp3s, spread across a few CDs on which I had burned them on. Plus frm 2003 till that time I didn’t have a computer.

Since then I have burned all my cds onto my hard disk and then in 2008 I bought the first of my 3 external hard drives. That first one, a Western Digital 120 GB capacity drive is now used exclusively for my mp3s! I love music so much and with the help of torrents, I have also been able to get albums worth of music from bands/artists that I like but whose cds aren’t available in India. If I could find them, even if online in Indian stores, I would buy them.

So I now have 51.5 GB worth of music mp3s!! That is huge! It’s safe to say that there is a lot of good music out there and there is a whole lotta crap as well. I sort out the stuff that I want and listen to them at my leisure. Here’s to good music.
