How can you give a rating for a movie?

I am an ardent follower of the South Indian Cinema, especially the progress of Tamil Movie making. There are far too many movies made nowadays and it is impossible for me to watch nor comment on all of them. My reviews are inevitably limited to Tamil movies that are significant for their sheer quality, and if not, at least for their blockbuster standing. I may also write at times on matters concerning the film Industry. Despite my passion for Indian Cinema, I am not an Indian, and although movie critics are all alike despite geographical boundaries, this could be the only place to read the views on Tamil movies by a non-Indian national. Enjoy.

Here is how I will be rating movies

Scale of 5 stars

No star: Crap or trash whatever you may call, simply not worth your time, let alone a Rupee spent

0.5 star: non-existent!

Tamil movies

1 – 2 stars: Film of some substance and some high points but generally disappointing. Don’t watch unless you have something compelling about the movie

2 – 3 stars: Film that can be watched although some critics may not agree. The film has some strong point in one or more areas to be applauded. Of course the movie could have been much better

3 – 4 stars: A fine movie by Indian Tamil Cinema standards, but has some weaknesses that may not be apparent to all. Go and watch if you haven’t as you may be missing that is good

4.5 stars: This is a far superior movie by any Cinema standards, and of course would be vying for the movie of the decade award, and top 10 Tamil movies of all time award.

5 stars: Movie of sheer class and something that needs combined skills of Maniratnam, K. Balachandar and Balu Mahendra, brainstorming with Kamal Hassan! Such a movie may never materialise. If it does, it will be a D-Day in the annals of Tamil cinema.

Phenibut effect -How long does it seem?

At this point, the contribution is really interesting. The effect can be up to 24 hours after you last took it! I often find that the day after I have taken Phenibut, I feel the best.

Phenibut dosage and use:

Phenibut dosage

Placing their phenibut in a snuff box is smart.You can advantageously handle your powder in a snuff box.This point of dosing and use is very important. I repeat, very important! If you take the preparation in “wrong” way, you risk getting much less / worse effect from it.

Should I use Phenibut one day, my dosage looks like this:

Directly in the morning I take 0.5-1 grams. I rinse it down with an energy drink or coffee. Getting caffeine together with Phenibut is very important , it increases the effect. At least about 80 mg of caffeine should be obtained. A Red Bull 250 ml contains just 80 mg, a cup of coffee is about 100 mg.

After I have taken Phenibut I do not eat anything in at least one hour. Then one could settle for the day, but I recommend taking a dose for later in the day / evening. (This is to get the most out of one’s use when one should not use it too often. Rather some good and maximized opportunities instead of many smaller and worse).

The dose I take in the evening tends to be as large or less as today’s first. About 0.5 grams is right. The routine is the same, first take Phenibut several hours after eating. Rinse it down with caffeine pressure and then eat nothing for at least 1 hour.Of course, one can then vary and tinker a little with the size of the dose. But I really do not recommend anyone to exceed 3-4 grams per day. I’ve done it a few times with mixed results, more about it further down.

Phenibut dosage

I am now on my second bag from absorb your health and I can confirm that it is really good, but I have also realized that it is very powerful. With other brands I have sometimes taken up to 2 grams in the morning and just over 1 in the evening. But with this I recommend not to exceed 1 gram in the morning and then 0.5 in the evening. But if you are a beginner I recommend you to try with a little first time, max 0.5 g in the morning and about half in the evening!

It is simply very potent, which is good as it lasts longer. The effects I received when I took 2 grams are similar to the ones I received when I took 3-4 grams of other brands. One does not get the same comfortable relaxing effect and can become a little drowsy / tired. Then of course all have different tolerances and so on, but if you have used other brands before, do not take as large doses at the beginning.

The pleasures of an online gaming site can prove addictive.

I rang my mother the other day, and she was screaming. “I lost so many points on Tangleword today, I am so rusty!” Yes, my mother is addicted to Tangleword, a competitive version of Boggle, where you challenge other addicted Tangleword players online.

And while you may think this is sad, what is even sadder is that my family has learned to talk to my mother in the one-minute intervals between every two-minute Tangleword round.

Tangleword is just one game of about 50 provided on I must admit,I also enjoy the occasional game, but have found that every time I enter this site, my computer becomes infected with a cocktail of ad and spyware.

After cleaning my computer several times, out of frustration I decided that I was better off just purchasing Scrabble.

I mentioned it to mother – the expert at online word games – and she said that before I handed over the cash at the store I should look on the internet for a better solution and, as they say, mother always knows best.

I came across, currently supplying addicts with a variety of games from Scrabble to Lemonade Tycoon.

The website offers users two options, the first of which is to purchase a game for $US20 ($A25) after the complimentary 60-minute trial period, and the second is a three-month subscription for the same price.

The subscription service works just like the purchasing option, but offers access to more than 100 games – from SpongeBob pinball to boulder dash and, yes, Boggle.

On the downside, after three months you must pay for another subscription or give up the games cold turkey.

Another aspect of the subscription-based service is that in order to open the game, you need to be connected to the internet, which is not the case if you purchase the product.

While I always hesitate to purchase just one game, I am more than happy to purchase the equivalent of a video-game library card – I know that if I tire of one game, I don’t have to fork out more money to play another. Visit here for more information.

The offer to remove the banner advertisement has never been an inducement to part with cash for me, but the prospect of being able to play without worrying about ad or spyware is almost too good to be true.

I must confess that I, too, have become a little addicted to online games. So much so that my wife recently sent me an email, adapted from the famous 12-steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, provided by On-Line Gamers Anonymous, a self-help group dedicated to helping those addicted to online games. ( But I must stop writing now, I feel an urgent need to beat the computer at Boggle again.

A New Piano Method – Recreational Piano

Did you know there is a kind of piano lessons that is just for fun? You need to read a music blog to stay updated on these new techniques and styles. This new kind of playing a piano is called recreational piano and it is exactly what it sounds like.

What do you think about when you think of piano lessons? Most likely when you think of piano lessons you think of a young boy or girl sitting at the piano learning to read the notes in their piano lesson book with a piano teacher sitting right beside them making sure they do it right.

Well who says learning to read notes is the right way to learn piano? Recreational Piano is learning how to play piano the fun way and the way you want to. If you don’t like reading notes, you don’t have to. If you don’t like playing classical music, then don’t.

When I was in college, I was taking a 3d animation class and learning how to make cartoons on the computer. One thing our professor always told us is, “If it looks right, it is right.”

I believe the same principle applies to recreational piano. If it sounds right, it is right. If it sounds good, it is good. If doesn’t matter how you learned the song. When you listen to some songs, can you tell the difference between an artist who can read notes versus an artist who can’t?

I think anyone who wants to play the piano should learn how they want. Now, you won’t get accepted into a professional symphony if you don’t read notes, but you can still play in a band or just play when you want and still impress people. I don’t think Stevie Wonder ever learned to read notes, do you?

Most people are under the impression that in order to be a good piano player, you need to know how to read notes really well, but I know a lot of people who play the piano that sound like they know more than just basics piano.

How in the world can I find recreational piano lessons?

There may be recreational piano classes at your local piano dealer. Do a search online using keywords like, “fun piano lessons” or just “recreational piano” and you can find tutors or music blog to learn from.

There are also piano books that you can order or even download that will teach you how to play the piano on your own without having to read notes for the piano.
