A regular conversation with Rahul.

Me : Hey, Rahul. We're jamming tomorrow aren't we?

Rahul: Yeah, man. Tomorrow at 5pm. How you been, man?

Me: Super. How's everything?

Rahul : Great, man. I've been trying to get some work done at the side. Been listening to the new Soilwork album, man. It's great. “The Panic Broadcast” isn’t the return to their roots as one might expect especially with the return of Wichers to the line up. In fact, it’s still the Modern Metal SOILWORK that they have come to be, but they have just changed a few of the focuses and added a bit more here and there to create a new sound that happens to incorporate many older tendencies. And apart from that, everything's super. I watched Inception, man. Fuck, what a film! Inception is one of the most honest films ever made. Nolan has crafted a movie that’s beyond brilliant and layered both narratively and thematically. It requires the audience to take in a collection of rules, exceptions, locations, jobs, and abilities in order to understand the text, let alone the fascinating subtext. Nolan’s magnum opus is the first major blockbuster in over a decade that’s demanded intense viewer concentration, raised thoughtful and complex ideas, and wrapped everything all in a breathlessly exciting action film. Inception may be complicated, but simply put it’s one of the best movies of the year. But yeah, lot of thing happening off late. We met at JATC last week and i thought.......

Me: Rahul, RAHUL! It's almost time, i'll see you at jam in 30 minutes.

Rahul: Ok, man.


So, Vinay is off to Montreal to visit his brother, Vivek; whom he hasn't met for almost 10 years now. Vinay will be saving on excess-luggage charges because he no longer has that legendary beard; which is also the reason why Vivek has asked Vinay to carry a placard with his name on it.
