It was an evening of goof up I guess.
First the last post "NY PEEK TURES" was to complement the short story
"New York New York" on my other blog shortceedy.
It has been a while since I updated and added a story - so I invite the veterans to visit it and the newbies to take a shot....give you bahumulya (invaluable) comments....
Second it has been brought to my attention by few bloggies that the last post was all bonkers in a different browser but worked well in another one.
So the Fire Folks kindly follow the advice of Vijeta Pandit in this song from the movie Love Story from 1981 when viewing the last post to view it as it was meant to be - thanks...
Sorry about the goof ups....ab main kya karoon! (What can I do Oh Guru Oh guru)

Have been kinda lazy on the blog hopping and commenting as am active enjoying the summer. Its in full blast with HE forgetting that there is adjustments on the hearing thernostat. Constant temperatures around 90 F (32.2 C) is not hot compared to any tropical climate but here since the temperature drop way below zero - this is significantly hot.
So as usual I am enjoying the Heat till it lasts. Was out for two day camping/canoeing trip in upstate New York. Went for my usual walks in NYC and then the one I want to share here is from yesterday.
Attended George Micheal's 25live - his first tour in 15 years - "a celebration of his 25-year career in music" at Madison Square Garden in NYC.
The stage was three huge screens as a backdrop with the center being a 45-50 foot screen that cascaded down onto a ramp. It showcased the videos and graphics for individual songs. It was really spectacular and surreal- with only him on the stage dancing and performaing as the videos rolled right from underneath his feet on this constantly changing flickering digital backdrop.
The setlist of the songs he played yesterday included some of his greatest singles : Fast Love,
Father Figure, Faith, Roxanne, Too Funky.
His new song Feeling Good - talks of his coming back after personal struggles for the past decade.
The highlight of the evening was Careless Whispers - where the entire crowd of 20000 plus was on their feet swaying and singing it word to word along with him.
He ended the performance with Freedom
Interesting thing is since he is gay, most of the songs are for his lost love partner but they have an universal appeal and the crowd simply lapped every moment.
Some of the songs that I did wish he played were : Jesus to a Child, Last Christmas and Dont Let the Sun Go Down on Me.
All in all it was a perfect evening and awesome to witness live a singer whose songs I have cherished all these years.
Update: I forgot I had taken pictures on my cell phone.
Here are some images taken of my cell phone - sorry for the poor quality.
It so happened that last time I posted the video for Asha Bhosale's concert - I got an email from Youtube and Carnegie Center for copyright infringement and the videos were removed by them from the US servers. Also I had been to the Garden for another concert where they did not allow the cameras - so did not take it for this one and guess what....I was amont the few who DID not have a camera on me....----Ah well

Like you might from many of my prior posts that I think a lot (yeh bimari ka koi ilaj batavo - please suggest a remedy for this disease) - YOUR USERNAMES give me weird ideas that I am presenting here.
The idea was embellished in my mind by Stupidosaur's comment and naming me as the title of this post on one of the blogs. Intrestingly one wins when one reaches 100 in Saanp Ceedy....
Thanks guys (I will really have to say it after you read this) - Enjoy! and if offended do read the end
So here goes - hope you can identify YOU.
- Abhi Shake kyu Khanaa - Are bhai Shake to piya jata hai na! (Why should I eat a shake - isnt it supposed to be drunk)
So if anyone is offended and feels screwed, my response to you all is same as the desi finalist in this seasons Last Comic Standing - Papa CJ
"I really dont give a damn. I am from the land of Kamasutra - I can screw you in more ways than you can even dream of"
Hope I dont have to shave off my blogroll after this!

First off...Since I moved I have limited access to the internet...so have not been able to visit blogs. Hope to be full on in a weeks time.
Here is my VERY FIRST Bloggie meet - up.
From l-r : Ankit (KP's brother), Kevin Patel (KP to bloggers), Sanket (my friend) and Me (ceedy to bloggers)
Last week KP was in North Jersey to attend a family wedding. He is from Columbus, Ohio.
We met at Bazookas - a sports bar and spoke about cricket (his favorite subject), everyones current lives and dreams, other bloogies and blogs and yada yada yada....
It was interesting as both of us did not remember how we landed on each others blogs - but the "gujju" connection has endured almost a year and was happy to finally meet him.
Hope to meet many more interesting bloggers here.
