A Story Through Music – Shattered

Haven’t posted anything in a while, so I thought, I’d rather post some music I made sometime back.

Its a slow, sad piece straight from the heart… a soundtrack in rough format. Will be part of the new album Life Keys, to be released near the year-end.

Title: Shattered

Album: Life Keys

Artist: RokZRooM

Genre: Soundtrack

Let me know how you feel, what ideas come to you as you listen! πŸ™‚ If you like the idea of sharing new music like this, I’ll put more of such work in progress / demos here. πŸ˜€

Cheers!

Keep Rockin’!

One Step

Long time back I saw a song on VH1, titled “The Importance of Being Idle”. Not that I fell in love with the song, but the message was excellent. When you’ve got nothing to do, whatever your do would most probably be the reflection of your inner desire, or as Steve Jobs had put it, “…somehow your heart already knows what you want!”

Sorry for not being around much, but you may agree how difficult it is in such times… a blank and bleak state of conscience, seeking desparetely for a ray of hope. You may just not know which step it is that can take you to the destination you really desire. You may even be unaware of that desire itself.

What to do?

Well, Enigma has already sang it, in the song Goodbye Milky Way – “Follow your heart, believe in faith..”;Β  I strongly recommend listening to this song, for a better, bigger vision that it helps listener visualize… dream big…here’s a the lyrics:

“Goodbye Milky Way”

Shall I go, shall I stay
107 light years away
many times, so many doubts
But no reason to talk about

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you, children of the sun
But it’s time to go away
Goodbye milky way

For a better world without hate
Follow your heart, believe in fate
Only visions and the mind
Will guide you to the light

Mission is over mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
But it’s time to go away
Goodbye milky way

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
I go home until someday
I say goodbye, goodbye milky way

In 5 bilions years the Andromeda galaxy will collide with our milky way
A new gigantic Cosmic world will be born

So, I thought lets not think for a while, and just do… act.Β  πŸ™‚

And I spent some 17000 Rs. to buy a midi controller.. thinking may be its the next step. Got it yesterday! And started believing in my dream again!

When you think of what’s to gain, or to loose. When you weigh the bet, its seems its not easy. Its not meant to be. But when you think again, nothing else really matters. Everything else is secondary!

Toughest thing about any change that one desires, is to act upon it. But all it takes is a little courage, and the first few steps – One step at a time. And,to learn THIS, you got to be sitting idle for more than a while. πŸ˜‰

Let’s see where does it take me.

Terminator – Salvation

Terminator - Salvation

Terminator - Salvation

WOW!

I could never watch a movie that I wanted to so badly in its first day first show! And a very few of the big-screen experiences I’ve had till date could deliver such a passion, thrill.. excitement!! Real entertainer!!

Its year 2018. The Skynet has taken over the control of Global weapon system, and most of the colonies the human race have developed so far are ruined to ashes. Except some underground existence of human race, only thing found on the land is debris of the devastated human marvels. Amongst these ruins lives the resistance, the secret army confined in scattered hideouts, with a common goal to destroy Skynet and a complete faith in John Connor.

But, the culprits behind the Skynet had already started its extreme version of Terminator. Marcus. The dashing, handsome hunk was once sentenced to death in 2003. But, he was revived later, upon his agreement to donate his body for R&D. The new Cyborg incarnation of Marcus with a body of bolts aimed to jolt has a brain and heart of a man.

Will John Connor and his army be able to destroy the Skynet? Or, the Marcus’ heart will be overridden by the purpose he’s remade to serve – genocide of human race?

Absolutely stunning graphics. Signature soundtrack with a qualitative reincarnation of the music (don’t miss shockingly awesome introductory music) and sound effects. A solid story line that a hard-core terminator fan OR any Sci-Fi fan would expect with an apt screenplay required for the plot to be perfectly generated. The second half slows down a bit, becoming a little draggy if you’re not connected with the storyline.. but worth watching for a hell-bent entertaining, its a great action thriller of the summer of ’09.

A must watch on the big screen. I’d rate this movie 8/10.

Sitting on the Moon, Watching Planet Blue!

Savithhhhhhhhhhaaaaaa =) hehe… you said it!! Now that’s what we’d call you as.. πŸ˜‰ heheh.. just kidding. πŸ˜›

Okay.. so Savita passed the baton to me, but I’m sure I’ll try my best to blow the flames off with the gibberish all over.. πŸ™‚

1. What is your passion?

Besides the fact that I live through music (may be you know how if you’ve come across my blog posts earlier regarding this addiction, a beloved obsession), I’m kind of a speed maniac as well, riding my bike genrally at an average speed of 70-80 km/h. πŸ˜‰ Have a deep interest in Physics, and most of the science stuff in general, nature. I love to fly… would want to sky-dive and try “bird-man” once in my life.

2. Cinema and Politics?

I adopt a lot of imagination, motivation build aspirational dreams through movies.. so, does that help make it clear my choice of movies!?? πŸ™‚ Used to love Sci-Fi a lot from childhood. Politics, yes, deeply interested in it and aspiring to contribute all I can in making our nation, and the world, a better place. Would love to join Nafs in this endeavor some day.

3. One good thing you want to happen in India, for people – Long term

Bring back the old glory – my golden sparrow. :’-) Taksha Sheela… Nalandaa.. Yoga… Spiritualism…. the west is adpoting our tradition and we’re moving away from ourselves, our true soul.
Good things I’d want to witness within my lifetime… Uplift the poors, develop the villages, start with education & infrastructure. A nation-wide knowledge TV accessible to anyone, which broadcasts knowledge off all the fields. Not just another GyanDarshan, but highly sophisticated knowledge channel that aims to enrich the lives of every indian by providing the right information, a channel that speaks the truth, is NGO-funded, aims to bring TRUTH out, and make every indian feel proud of what we are capable of, how well we are doing, and where we would want to go.

4. One good thing you want to happen for yourself – Short term

Neither hastily take any job… nor procrastinate my decision till death. I’d want to live my dreams… each of them… one by one… starting with music. πŸ™‚

5. One good thing you want to happen for this community of bloggers – Long term

We reach the acme of the goals we’ve set for ourselves, continue sharing the life as we live through, and some day in future meet again in a grandeur intellectual meet that aims to make the world a better place… do something for the world.

6. A frank thing you want to say about one of the bloggers here.

Nafs – I like his guts, but doubt his path! πŸ˜› But I’m DAMN sure he’s going to set a good example for all of us.
Abhishek – I love his intellectual quotient and love for physics and hunger for knowledge.
sanket, hashir, deepak – bunch of coolness.. πŸ˜‰
All of us – together – can do something really great and helpful to the world. Hope we do so soon..

7. Flirted?

Always… but never. πŸ™‚ I keep on looking.. like a wolf towards a moon (hope you’ve heard that story). Won’t utter a word though, never. But I genuinely admire the ones I like. Some pure admiration with clean intentions and emotions, thats it. πŸ™‚

8. Loved?

In school.. had a close friend… (in std 6. πŸ˜› ) but we changed school… and she disappeared.. .and I still miss her… is that love?

8. Loved?

Same story continues in school days… plenty of times… so CCP.. read.. re-read..

8. Loved?

And then… nothing in college – graduation.. πŸ˜‰ friends and music kept me busy… πŸ˜›

8. Loved?

In masters.. hmmmm… hmmmmmmm… may be!? πŸ˜›

8. Loved?

Came across so many lovely miracles that took my breath away or skipped a heartbeat or two… πŸ˜€
Just a stare… then a glare… and I’m lost in all despair……… Listen You’re beautiful (by James Blunt)…. this one to all the beautiful girls in the world… πŸ™‚

8. Loved?

Well… There’s a friend I like a lot now… but don’t know if thats love? :-/ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

8. Loved?

Hmmm… Okay so point is … I’m single and looking… dying to fall in love (and then know that that’s the feeling they call love… and know that I’m drowning in it..Β  feel it, live it…Β  πŸ˜‰ )

8. Loved?

Nimiety of nostalgia covers my heart as I think of this word. Could never figure out what it is, and if I had liked someone, was it love or what.. BUT, I can say for sure.. I love my dad, family, my friends, India, nature, Universe.. πŸ™‚ (seriously… when I think of the greatness of this universe.. I feel equally good. πŸ™‚ ) And yeah… I love music for sure. πŸ˜€ Well, I’m very very VERY V-E-R-Y emotional person… you see.. O:-) So bear with all these blah-blah, and my search for THE ONE continues.. πŸ˜›

9. A country you want to visit?

A Country? Well there are many I want to… specially UK (again and again), Ireland, Pakistan, Special Places – Polar regions, Mount Everest, Egypt Pyramids, Amazon forests, and every natural beauty here on earth. πŸ˜›

But my dreams have outgrown reality… and I wish I could sit on the moon once and look back at the earth.. then mars.. or Europa?!? πŸ™‚ Ohh I love this universe.. πŸ˜›

10. Belief in God?

I don’t know!!!!! At times I’m atheist, at times I’m not. Depends… πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜› lol… but lately I’ve moved much more away from God, specially due to the rigid and mindless traditional approach set towards spirituality by the society. Where does the conscience get to play its role!!???

11. One thing you would surely do to uplift this poor country.

Wish I could continue adopting the child I did.. 😦 But, may be, in future, for sure I’ll try to contribute in changing/establishing a better education system..

12. One secret about you.

I’m afraid to die for the fear of not being able to know what happens afterwards to the conscious world, the universe. Becasue I want to know every secret the universe beholds, and witness all of its miraculous happenings!! Also afraid to have realised at the end if that wasn’t the life I wanted to live!!! To face the what-ifs at the end.

13. Unforgettable memories…

When I lost my dad in std. 5.
The naughty, possessive, cute and charming girl who became my friend in std. 6. And after a year or so, never appeared back! No where!!
Witnessing earth-quake of Gujarat, its havoc, and the aftermath.
Lunacy that led to Cleansing and Purging in the riots. 😦
Some of the many ethereal experiences.

Phhew… finally I’m finished. πŸ˜› So…. who’s next? VATSAL – hold the baton and carry it forward! Hope there are some flames still left in it… And your time starts now… πŸ˜€

P.S. Whoever put the VPP category here… thanks! πŸ˜‰ Made it easier to sort. πŸ˜€ ROFL..
