Pass It On
#Why this Kolaveri Di? At last check, this phenom of YouTube has surpassed 12 million views in just two weeks. A catchy song that mixes the sounds of reggae and Slumdog Millionaire’s #Jai Ho, that is sure to cross cultural boundaries and possibly become the next “Macarena”. This song is simple and addicting. The lyrics are included in the video. The song is sung in English (yes, that’s a form of English) and Tamil, one of India’s classical languages. I’m anxiously awaiting the dance steps. #Kolaveri Di, which means murderous rage, is simply a perfect example of the viral nature of the internet where unknowns can be discovered, and the most popular performers of other countries become known to us sheltered Americans! Enjoy.
There’s More Than One Way To Do Things
After 10 years as a Mac user, I had to incorporate Windows 7into my daily computer use. This is stressful to say the least, and I feel more like a Baby Boomer than ever before. I reluctantly became a Mac user out of peer pressure only to discover that they were right. I’ll keep you updated as to my learning curve. The most notable issue is that Windows 7 is cluttered compared to Mac. Now, not withstanding the fact that I am farsighted, I can’t seem to navigate my browser. Arrrghh. Don’t ask me how it compares to Windows XP because I have no clue. I don’t like reading the manual. Stay tuned.
