The Pink army

No!If you've been to my blog already,I know what you're thinkin.But before you start banging your heads against the comp screen,or worse still,get after my balls,of which there is a good chance,considering that the moderator of this blog,The Mandu is infamous for frequently contemplating suicide but finally choosing genocide as the better option(this sentence is getting rather long,ain't it?),let me assure you,this is NOT another brick...oops sorry for getting carried away,this is NOT another Pink Floyd post,but deals with a rather serious(hehe) and relevant question(at least to me),and that is,Why is this blog coloured PINK? Well,it may be attributed to the (ahem!) tendencies of the members.'Course that ain't true(What!there might be chicks reading this,f ' cryin out loud!I still love y'all).Anyway,i have no idea what mandu had in mind,but to me this is just another one of the many supercool characteristics people in this Godforsaken place(yup,our dear alma mater) seem to share.It's an attitude thing,to me.It's not enough for us to be the coolest ones,so we go a step further,we go ahead and do the uncoolest thing possible,The point made here is,"We're so cool we don't give a fudge what is cool." It's the attitude!It is why we love Kurt Cobain,he's our man!No offence to true-blue Nirvana fans(Heck!I'm one of 'em),but we must remember that Grunge wasn't just a genre in music.It was an attitude,a way of life.It was about not conforming to the standards set by self-proclaimed cool dudes!The rest of the world may(and does) go ape over the ultracool hip-hop artists,and possibly even their truly sickening Punjabi clones,but we can never forgive them for the sacrilege that is Snoop Dogg's version of "Riders on the storm",or for the audacity of the guy who came up with the Dhol(shudder!) version of "Summer of '69". In fact,since we're on my favourite subject here(music i.e.),I think our musical tastes reflect our attitude more than anything else.Nirvana,Pink Floyd(PBUT),Queen,Led Zep,Black Sab,Bob Dylan,Deep Purple,Guns n Roses,these are some of the greatest artists the world has seen.Howver,you're clearly not with the times if you still listen to them.You're not cool enough if you've not heard of the latest thing in Rap and hip-hop.Well,go tell it to someone who cares!
The rest of the world,with all its cool dudes,would shudder at the mere mention of the colour,leave aside actually using it in their web page.While the colour doesn't look too cool,what is even more frightening is that it may send out wrong signals.But we choose to do it,maybe only because it shouldn't be done!That's supercool if you ask me.
In conclusion,I'd just like to make a confession.There are moments when we do decide to conform.And so when I was contemplating buying a Freddie Mercury tee recently,I was warned by mandu that I can kiss all chances of losing my virginity in the near future,a hard goodbye,if I do that.It was my weak moment,when I had to succumb to the norms.I'm sorry for that,mates.
