While I have been drinking more whiskey than I should and tempering that with way too much double expressos, I have been fairly busy over the past few days. Supposedly working, schmoozing on official business would be more like it and when I had to work I became so snappy, that it surprised me. Actually, I do believe I have been getting too snappy of late, with too many people. Not good, not me actually. C'mon I have a carefully cultivated image of a jovial, gregarious sort, I can't let the insane, close-to manic depression version of me on the loose. Because god knows what will happen then, because that side of me is a pretty scary side, because I know it exists. Maybe you will start noticing it in some posts, let me know if I start to lose the plot.
But, coming back to things, we did speculate on why EchTee did the puff job they did on Ponytail (ref: this post) and today I saw why. It was a full-frontal assault by the industry's worst copywriting team on the front-page. I have been described in one email as a ToI 'apologist', well I think the marketing team there owes Indian readers an apology for unleashing the full-frontal nudity advertsing that plagues big publications today. Anyway, we won't into the merits or demerits of that now, because I can be stuck here for a long time. But the point is that Ponytail does seem to be a nice human being, though so many other folks are also nice guys, doesn't make them saints though.
I have also been reading with fascination the coverage on the Scarlett case in Goa. Weirdly enough, I really don't think the girl was murdered, because if she was as high as the papers claimed she was - three hits of acid among other things in a 15-year old - she probably died of shock. Sex on LSD is not something anybody would really reccomend, especially considering the thing is a drug that makes your brain go all funny. Maybe some folks get their kicks thinking their screwing a gnome, or the clouds or whatever, but for god's sake... Anyway somewhere here while teh Brit's carry on about the mother and the Indian papers and channels struggle to find a point, drugs are still going to be extremely easy to find in Goa. And pwonder why Goa attracts white trash, well, all sorts of trash actually.
Anyway, I have much left to be done, working with utter and complete idiots who claimed to be editors of defunct publications. Sigh, I things I do for money short of bending over. Such idiots!
