Truly, Madly, Deeply.... Pallu!

I have been following this cool site called Vimeo since its days of birth. Cool video upload site started by Jakob Lodwig and Zack Klein at Connected Ventures, LLC. Upload videos from your PC, tagged browsing and recently, upload videos from your cell phones and publish them to your blog. Something I really wanted and its up there. These guys respond well to the feedback. I hope they connect it up with blogmaps next and I can know which user of Vimeo resides in the neighbourhood.

Anyways, marketting this site is not the purpose of this post (altho its definitely worth looking up - only 20 MB upload a week tho). But what provides one entertainment should be given due credit.

So ladies and gentlemen, proudly presenting:



So my friends, here is good ol' Pals during our Ocean City trip. I think he was so fed up with Bakshi (great going Bakshi) that he started singing to shut us all up. Truly Madly Deeply.... started off on the CD we had playing and Pals started off his own version. Enjoy! And yes, Pals would appreciate your feedback if he should try for the next Gujju Idol.

Note: You might need quicktime to view this. You can view it directly on my blog by hitting the play button which shows up under Pals photo (you neednt click the link which says - "View this clip on Vimeo". Thats optional.).

Mahi: pain, my child is just a state of mind!! and if you really think this was painfull ... wait till you meet the dude ... but im sure u'r luckier than that..

well on the flip side ... if we're still in the apoo bashing phase ... pals is ur best bet ... he'll be ur best partner in crime/trash/bash ..

iyer/apoo/pals: we need to have a jugalbandhi of sorts with pals singing and iyer dancing ... that wud be fun im sure ...

we cud also perhaps have farro performing (acting) but im sure we wont need that ...

Iyer: I am gonna try for South Indian Idol. I think that will suit the lady's family well. First patao the family....

Couchie: U have not heard him in full flow!

Mahima: Pain is relative. Wait till u hear me sing!!

Abhi: Throw in a couple of wild dogs and myself with Iyer and Pals. That'll rock!

Winny (the pooh?): Actually, Pals is a rebel Gujju... but if you do a search on Vimeo for pals, all all videos under my ID, u'll have another one of pals doing an awesome Ghat + other mocks (audio is a lil low tho)

apoo: ya right... you, me, pals and dogs... that would sure make a great combination... after sometime it would be difficult for people to make out which of us is the dog... so lets keep the dog outside and have dhammal :)

Have you checked out YouTube yet? Just like vimeo, except you can upload as much as you want. Each vid has to be under 100mb, though. Their vids are also bigger than a thumbmail. ;)

U never know Mahima... u cant be lucky for too long!

Thanks Zack. Will check. I assume u the same Zack from Vimeo!

Smithy: Thats weird. Works fine for me. Try watching it on the Vimeo site. Still dont work... get quicktime, perhaps that could be the reason.

Mahi: I am a horrible guy. I have the right to utter horrible things! And no unkind words for Pals.... unless you wanna direct hurricane Rita to Singapore!

Couchie: Same PC used a day ot 2 back?

Abhi: Pals, Mahi and CoCo.... hmmm could be a killer for me. Actually, just Pals is enuff. FYI, Mahi has a dog too... Kelso.

Thats it. Deepak said it. Its gotta work!!

Mahi: CoCo is Nicoles mutt. The one thats supposedly keeping me from killing her.

Winny, heck, is she psychic? How did she know? Abbs? How?
And winny, let more cats out... any more interesting things about Abbs... please feel free to share. That is the main purpose of this blog!

apoo: yaar your blog is turning out to be more of a mystery now... its now becoming like a woman's blog where much of the things have to be read between the lines... why cant people speak straight here... why are they letting cats and dogs out... arey yaar ye kya ho raha hai... coco, kelso, cats, apoo, madame, nicole, abhi, idea, winny, me...

what is the whole purpose of this post... i guess we should beat up paryul for confusing all of us with his post (and not to mention singing)... let us all beat up paryul for singing and confusing... what say...

apoo & abhi: i met up bird y'day... and he was confident that if apoo doesnt get him a PDA cover, abhi will... and bird has finally got a lappie at office... will soon get internet connection soon... and as soon as he gets it, he will kill himself... will keep you updated on that :)

@ Abhi: For different reasons, though!

@Apoo: No. Was the college one. Snail-paced, I agree.
