Psy – Second Acts are Hard

Just one day after its debut, Korean rapper Psy’s new music video Gentleman M/V has already attracted 28 million views.

And 87% of the over half-million people people who voted for the video gave it the thumbs up.

A mere 80,257 gave Gentleman M/V the thumbs down.

Shows you that good taste is rarer than you imagine! πŸ™

    It’s like a simple story that is being told for all these years – A man carries a goat on his shoulders, but encounters three different persons on his way – each of who wonder and ask why he carries a donkey / calf / monkey respectively, and the frightened man leaves the goat in disbelief, thinking it’s a ghost.

    Explains how a group of opinions can affect the thinking process of a man.

    The more people say something is good, the more people start to believe it is really good. There are exceptions though (like the 80,257). Sometimes I have seen this effect being applied to even songs from musicians like ARR (Remember Endhiran?). Responds:

      And no special post for Tamil new year? πŸ˜‰ Responds:

      I have made a resolution on Tamil New Year’s Day to give a Bountiful Gift to My Grandchildren:

      Henceforth, I will eat more dark chocolate, nuts, seeds, fish, blueberries, raw carrots, whole grains, and avocado. I swear to abjure McDonald’s Hot and Spicy McChicken!

      Because researchers say what I eat will decide my grandchildren’s productivity. No kidding!

      Listen to what UCLA Professor of neurosurgery and physiological science Fernando GΓ³mez-Pinilla, an expert on the effects of food, exercise and sleep on the brain, has to say:

      A long-term study that included more than 100 years of birth, death, health and genealogical records for 300 Swedish families in an isolated village showed that an individual’s risk for diabetes and early death increased if his or her paternal grandparents grew up in times of food abundance rather than food shortage.

      “Evidence indicates that what you eat can affect your grandchildren’s brain molecules and synapses,” GΓ³mez-Pinilla said. “We are trying to find the molecular basis to explain this.”


      Bottom line:

      * Abhishek Bachchan’s parents, grandparents and great-great grandparents did not have good dietary practices! πŸ˜‰

      * Salman Khan’s parents, grandparents and great-great grandparents likely ate a lot of red meat!

      * Ajith’s parents, grandparents and great-great grandparents probably ate a lot of punnaku (fodder).

    Parts of it are disgusting. Responds:

    In Kaliyug, there’s a premium for drivel.
