Tagged - Repeatu!

Courtesy: Nirmal, Once more!

Here are the rules:
1. Players start with 5 random facts about themselves.
2. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 5 random facts.

I love animals - in the zoo! I'm not comfortable with anything that is not human, around me! I have a special "tryst" with dogs that they can't stand me and I can't stand them - as I have already mentioned here! Cats - the only cat I like is the one which comes in Tom & Jerry cartoon!

2) Tamizh Cinema
I'm a self proclaimed Tamizh Cinema PhD. Especially movies which came after 1990 are my favorite "research" area. I can talk about every detail of the film - starting from heroes to dubbing artistes for heroines!

3) Music
I enjoy music in various forms - Tamil film music, Carnatic, Hindustani, Instrumental and a very little of rock. I can't survive without my MP3 player. Musicindiaonline, Raaga, Oosai were one of the first sites I bookmark on any computer that I use.

4) Spirituality, Religion and Roots
Recently, I'm trying to develop myself on these aspects. I trying to fall into the habit of doing the sandyavandhanam as often as possible. I'm seeking to renew my knowledge in Indian History - starting from Harappa till current day stuff. So far, I have been a English fiction reader, but now I'm trying to read some stuff which deals with atheism, theism, tamizh literature such as Ponniyin Selvan, Sivagamiyin Sabatham. I'm also currently doing some parallel study of Hinduism and its roots - to more about concepts like Brahman, Advaita and try to practice as much as possible.

5) Tech Stuff
Apart from Windows, I don't know to operate any other OS. I know only 2 programming languages - C++ and BASIC (both were taught at school). But I have the ability to learn stuff fast - I'm pretty good with office (does that count as computer skills?) and perhaps video encoding/decoding stuff - courtesy downloading movies from torrents. I dont even know how to write a single line of code in HTML or any further enhancements of HTML. I think I thank Mr. Gates atleast once a day for making stuff easier for dorks like me. Nowadays, increasingly, Google is saving me much more often than Mr. Gates.

I pass the tag to Yuvabharathi.

And previous experience was a previous blog which I had and when I posted a scathing review for an actor's film, all his fanatic fans tried commetn bombing my blog - so had to introduce this comment moderation.

@ Ambi,

Your audio is a big de-motivating factor for visitors. Not everyone browses from home, you know.:-) (incase you care)
