Great lines from songs

Background The other day I was experimenting with Kris Kristofferson's Nobody Wins and I was struck by this one line in the song. It seemed to just stand apart and emit this glow that could not be ignored. As usual, my mind, or whatever is inside my cranial cavity, wandered off into this…

Dhinchak Selfie

This song has had many, many views. It received millions of viewers and has become a sort of cult classic, based on its viral potency. I have taken the extreme pain of taking the lyrics and translating them for you. First, the original lyrics in the original script, then the original lyrics using…

The Typewriter Tape

Every once in a while I get deeply, madly bored and depressed. Normally this takes the form of excessive eating, extreme reading, cleaning up things or staring at the wall opposite me. I have a horror of facing the wall. I hate sitting with my back to the door which exasperates my Beloved…
