International Indian Film Academy in Sri Lanka

Standard

So it was confirmed today that the International Indian Film Academy Awards also known as iiFA will be held in Colombo this June. Sri Lanka Tourism Promotions Bureau has won a very difficult bid against some of the most renowned countries just to host this years iiFA awards in Colombo Sri Lanka in June.

It is estimated that a total of 300 Bollywood stars will be attending this event and some Hollywood figures (wont say who) will be attending as well. The International Indian Film Academy is a first-of-its-kind effort to promote Indian Cinema globally, thus reaching out to millions of its fans.

It’s the celebration of Indian Cinema. The International Indian Film Academy.  Propelling Indian Cinema to glorious pinnacles beyond Indian shores. As global cinema rapidly emerges, a prominent place for Indian Cinema is reserved. IIFA constantly endeavours to showcase to the world the wealth of talent Indian Cinema has to offer.

Funnily enough we had to beat the favourite seoul South korea for this. I guess in a way this is going to put Sri Lanka on the map as an ideal destination to visit during the time. Lets just hope we dont have another  bunch of psychos who start some stupid group and try and stop this too.

Lets Kill Akon!

Standard

I’m sure most of us know of the latest developments that have been happening in our little Island. If not, let me give you a summary. Since of late we as Sri Lankans have realized that we have a bunch of terrorists in our country. Oh no not the LTTE, those guys are so year 2009, this is the latest kind. Probably deadlier. The lovely mob that has emerged. Yep you guessed it. Its the “We hate Akon” group. I am sure most of you are having a huge ROFL moment right now. But i am not kidding you people we have a HOLY WAR in our hands. Its not even Osama Bin Ladens doing anymore. Why wont people just let Osama have his lime light and stop trying to take it away from him. I mean how unfair is that. Here we have one man who tried so hard and turned out to be one of the world most wanted criminals who gave meaning to the words “Holy and War” and Sr i Lanka being famous for copying EVERYTHING from the western world, stole that from him as well.

So now how did all this start? Well no one actually gave two hoots as to the fact that AKON had SIMULATED sex on stage with a 15 year old. Yes I repeat to all the people who keep saying he had sex on stage it was NOT sex. It was SIMULATED SEX, and whoever says theres no difference… well then my advice to you is…. GET LAID. So anyway Akon decided to come and it seems that we have a certain minority who doesnt want anybody from the western hemisphere to visit this country and increase tourism… Oh noo heaven forbid.. thats just so god damn bad.. what we need in this country is for us to have a Non existing Island which no one has heard of.. what the heck right? 2012 is approaching.. who needs tourism…

Okay So there’s a video with Akon and a Buddha statue in the background with two girls dancing in front of it. That video came out long time back and we have started an uproar now??? all because his visiting. Firstly it wasn’t even his video and secondly its just a BACKGROUND u MORONS. Even if our lovely group of haters have proved time and time again that their thinking is soooooooooooo prehistoric, their use of technology is certainly commendable. Whats the first thing they do? Open up a facebook group that has close to 500 new additions everyday. So right now i think its some 8900 members and increasing (and please people stop joining the damn group)

So now we have articles badmouthing lots of established figures in this country and we have a set of hooligans roaming around with their jungies in a twist threatening to throw grenades and kill Akon. 😛 Oh yes people i am definitely LMAO. and who might these sad losers be? well i checked some of their profiles.. Most of their status’s say “we hate akon – vote for wimal Weerawansa”, “we hate akon – Vote for Champika ranawaka” LOL…. so you can imagine of which caliber they all come from.

All i can say is… dont use buddhism as an excuse to hate.. because as far as i remember Lord Buddha never taught hate and murder in his teachings.. its sad that we ourselves say that we are devout buddhists but we do more damage to Budhism than any westerner could.

So my advice… go watch Akon.. ofcourse thats if he decides he wants to come to a crazy ass country in which we still have a whole heap of apes running around…..

To kill a Mockingbird

Standard

I have read review after review about this book and i have always wanted to get my hands on it… but just never got the chance. Even though its an old book its still one of the best books ever released by any author. The story line is based around two kids and how they see the turn of events that affect them and their family. The book is told through the eys of these two kids, who have been brought up by their father.

The story takes place during three years of the Great Depression in the fictional “tired old town” of Maycomb, Alabama. The narrator, six-year-old Scout Finch, lives with her older brother Jem and their widowed father Atticus, a middle-aged lawyer. Jem and Scout befriend a boy named Dill who visits Maycomb to stay with his aunt for the summer. The three children are terrified of and fascinated with, their neighbor, the reclusive “Boo” Radley. The adults of Maycomb are hesitant to talk about Boo and for many years, few have seen him. The children feed each other’s imaginations with rumors about his appearance and reasons for remaining hidden, and they fantasize about how to get him out of his house.

Atticus is appointed by the court to defend a black man named Tom Robinson, who has been accused of raping Mayella Ewell, a young white woman. Although many of Maycomb’s citizens disapprove, Atticus agrees to defend Tom to the best of his ability. Other children taunt Jem and Scout for Atticus’ actions, calling him a “nigger-lover”.

Atticus establishes that the accusers—Mayella and her father, Bob Ewell, the town drunk—are lying. It also becomes clear that the friendless Mayella was making sexual advances towards Tom and her father caught her in the act. Despite significant evidence of Tom’s innocence, the jury convicts him. At this point of the book, Jems confidence in the legal system faulters and he realises that the truth is not important to people who give out verdicts based on skin colour.

At that point the book takes an unfortunate turn for the Robinson family and we witness a little bit of what people went through in those times when they were different. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee tells of  how a series of events shook their innocence, shaped their character and taught them about human nature.

Why you shouldn’t READ or WATCH twilight

Standard

So it all began when twilight was first released. Like every other vampire movies/books fan, I too wanted to get my hands on the books. So my boyfriend, being the extremely wonderful man that he is surprised me with the first ever book one day. Boy wasnt i the most happiest person. So i sat my ass down and read. At first the book confused me beyond anything else. The author kept on making bella say stupid things like “edward is so perfect” throughout the entire book. Now correct me if im wrong but in which world did you come across a vampire who SPARKLES in the sun?

So do i learn my lesson? I mean ofcourse i was extremely disappointed with the book but I have this knack that when I start reading a series I need to finish it. So my poor boyfriend ended up buying me the first 3 books and poor avocado the 4th. So I thought book three was the best out of the lot but then I had the misfortune of reading book 4, and my  oh my.. if you havent….. then DONT.

Throughout the entire series the author creates a main character which is an empty shell. Her appearance isn’t described in detail;  I read every book and barely had any idea of what the main character looked like; as far as I was concerned she was a giant turd. Appearance aside, her personality is portrayed as insecure, fumbling, and awkward – a combination anyone who ever went through puberty can relate to. Its sad and so uneventful. The final book was just a waste of trees that had to be cut down to print that god damn version. Bella has a blasted baby who turns out to be half and half and the funniest thing is they round up a whole bunch of weird ass vampys for a battle with the “great” voltury or something and the entire battle i believe lasted a mere half an hour… and 30 minutes of it was all verbal. Now isn’t that an inspiring take of a vampire bloodshed anyone would want to read about? Oh yeah all you people who got excited about the werewolves…. they actually are not even werewolves.. they turn out to be shape shifters… ohh yeahh… jacob black is a no good shape shifter. sighh

And the movie?
The movie is just the same uninspired crap shat out onto a film reel. If you like the taste of shit on your sandwiches, you’re probably gonna like it as your dessert as well. The same principle applies with Twilight.

Beyond that, it’s just a romance novel with the occasional vampire teen drama bullshit peppered here and there. It doesn’t really break any new ground in the realm of vampire fiction, other than portraying vampires as a family of uncomfortable retards who prance around the woods eating deer and bunny rabbits. Theres loads of adjectives used to describe Edward and his great body… which to be honest was just crap in the movie.

I am still confused as to how the directors of the movie chose two complete and utter retards for the movie. Both are so uninspiring as actors.. specially bella… Edward is too busy trying to look pretty while he sparkled.
