Enjoy the Silence

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Cant you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence


Enjoy the Silence is a Depeche Mode song and I just love the lyrics.  It’s been covered quite a lot in the last couple of years including by popular British band, KEANE.  The cover has been released in a version of KEANE’s latest single, A Bad Dream but I already got the song months before when the band sang the song for the very first time for Yahoo! So, I should think that it’s quite legal to distribute the mp3 cover.  Just email me.

I also got a cover of the same song by Gothic Rock band, Lacuna Coil, which is part of the band’s latest album, Karmacode.  I think their version is better than KEANE’s.  IMHO.

UPDATE: And, oh Nym, if you’re reading this, tell me what you think about The Fray‘s Heaven Forbid.  (Link to the album on Amazon.)

My Friday Nights

[Listening to: Clocks, A Rush of Blood to the Head, Coldplay]

Friday nights are always well planned all the time.  It’s just the best night, really.

  1. Must finish dinner by 8.30 p.m
  2. Watch Les enfants d’abord
  3. Watch Avant Premiere
  4. Watch Lost
  5. Chat with a couple of friends on MSN
  6. Text my girlfriend until early Saturday morning.

I wish I could add “Watch The Office” to the mix but I won’t be able to watch any episodes today.  I’m currently downloading two episodes per day, from 5 p.m to 9 p.m and I’ll be at grandma’s today so, no Internet until late at night.

[Listening to: Somebody Told Me, Hot Fuss, The Killers]

Are you on SecondLife?

What’s Epin?

Emtel’s latest service, Epin, is being greatly advertised by the company but I don’t think many people actually know how it works.

It is fairly simple, really.  Emtel has employed various “agents” around the island and thanks to the Epin service, you can hand any one of those agents some money (anything from MUR25 to MUR1000) and this agent will instantly credit your account with that amount minus the TVA, which is automatically deducted.  In other words, “refueling” one’s account is only a few keypad buttons away.

A friend of mine is an “agent” and I have been crediting my account through him ever since.  This is cool because I’m no longer limited to R50 or R125 scratch cards.  I can give him any sum I find appropriate.  Furthermore, the “agent” gets a commision on every purchase so I’m supporting him as well.  That’s always a good thing.

The only problem is that you now have to locate an agent.  Ah well…

Music Collection part2

Back in March this year, my music collection took 2.47 GB on my pc.  These days, the number has evolved to 3.54 GB: a rough increase of about 1 GB.

My tastes are still more or less the small.  I enjoy slow rock, gothic rock, alternative and bit of pop music but the band that is now ever-present on my mp3 player is KEANE.  I can rant and rant about this band for ages.  Always liked their first album, Hopes and Fears, but I have to say that their second album is just too cool.  The music is very heavy and dark and the lyrics are much more researched.  In brief, KEANE is indeed my favourite band.

Why guys can’t understand girls?

It’s all happening over at fellow Mauritian blogger, Hans, on this post.  Here’s an appetiser:

You know the people I hang around with, telling me to go out with the
next girl I meet because life is so short, everything can happen and I
have to live every single moment of it. But then I can’t. I won’t feel
like cheating a girl or hurt her feelings. In fact with every girl I
went out : I tried that very best : being sincere, being the one I
think she would want me to be. In fact everytime I changed myself in
accordance to what she would be wanting from me. Just to make her
happy. I won’t feel human if I did something that would make her cry.
With my ex, I think I begged her so many times because I knew I hurt
her feelings.

Obviously I just had to reply and again, just a tiny part here.  Better you just click here.

Come on guys, get a grip on yourselves. My two best friends are
girls and my girlfriend is, well, a girl too! How is it possible for me
to get the ball rolling while you’re apparently unable to?

Sometimes it is hard to comprehend a girl totally, I admit
but I find that with some questions here and there, they will tell you
about it and all comes out. They tend to take seemingly silly things
(from a guy’s perspective at least) in a primordial manner but that’s
how they are. Really, if girls were the same as guys, wouldn’t life be
shit?
