show me some fun, please

so there are times when i love bangalore city. because its still so green and its still so pretty on a rainy day, or early in the morning, or when im driving down an open road, or when an auto driver is nice to me, or when im not in one of the many hideous malls.

but today wasnt one of those days. today sucked. and i hate bangalore city. i hate that its so sleepy. that its so fucked up with all the traffic and the fucking crowds everywhere. that inox played NO english movies this week. that plaza and galaxy dont exist anymore. that there's absolutely no place to go and sit down without being ripped off, by paying for something you dont really need, just so you can sit down and have some peace by yourself. that the malls have taken over everybodys lives. that we have to go to multiplexes to watch movies. that the streets are such a mess because nobody wants to park straight, drive straight, live straight. i hate it all.

i wasted today. left work dying to catch a movie. but it wasnt meant to be. what i ended up doing was locking myself out of my car, spending some time trying to get back in, and sitting in the food court at garuda wondering why i was there, hating it all the time, sitting in my car in various alleys and street corners of this not so pretty-by-night city..all because theres simply nothing to do here.

i hate that just wanting to watch a movie is such a fucking ordeal these days. i remember the old days. when we'd decide as a family, that we wanted to watch a movie one evening. we'd eat an early dinner, drive down to the theatre and buy tickets..the stupid MULTIplexes, with their 4 and 5 and 6 screens dont do squat. theres never anything worth watching. what with an all-regional movie list this week.

i miss paying under 80 bucks for a ticket and 5 rupees for a packet of popcorn and 10 rupees for "fountain pepsi". and i miss it all. i hate inox. its such a sham. and im such a slave..simply because i dont have options. its that, or no movies.

so im bleah. i wish someone would show me a good time and pamper the living daylights out of me. im in the mood to sit back, be entertained and have some fun.
