Dadhood: Week one

Life is an ever moving circus of change. Change, the only constant, is sometimes, good, sometimes bad, and sometimes, so fabulous it deserves a separate category altogether. As of writing this article – or at least beginning this article – I have successfully completed my first week of fatherhood. I...

The Neverending dream

Dreams are fascinating… and mysterious. There is no real consensus on WHY we dream. Is it an evolutionary mechanism to stir us awake every now and then to ward off predators? Is it a spillover of the unconscious processing of the day’s experience? Or is it just a subconscious rebellion...

Thoughts Must Be Crazy

As someone who’s been shot and killed several times, I often wonder whether this makes me an expert in spiritualism or the ‘world beyond’; does it make me noteworthy at all, or does it get diluted by the fact that my death and revival has only happened within video games?...

Look Who’s Stalking

Ever get that sneaky creepy feeling that you are not alone? That you’re being followed? Whether you’re walking alone in the middle of the night through a dark alley, or sliding past a thickly populated mall at peak time… ever get the feeling so strong that you feel like rebuking...

Matchmaker – World Cup 2011

It is a multipurpose, multi-utility, trans-cultural universal time-saver, usable and reusable across different categories of questions. Personally, I use this phrase most...

Smokin’ Faces

I like to stay on frivolous topics. Frivolous topics are my life. It suits me fine because it takes down the pressure a notch or two. Nobody ever died growing edible crops in their underwear… at least, I hope not. As a marketing graduate (In case you didn’t know, a...

News Rules

People often walk up right to me and say, “Hamish, stop lying. We never walked up to you and said anything. In fact, we don’t think we even exist in real life. Stop making us up!!” It’s very disconcerting… But after a little bit of such bickering, they end up...

For Paul Van Syne, My Dear

I know it’s late, but… Happy New Year to one and all. Hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve. This was my first New Year outside the country, and this New Year’s Eve, I wanted  to do something really special, something I’ve never done before. Specifically, I wanted to...

The Smarter Phony

Someone needs to put a leash on the smartphones before things get completely out of control. I, for one, am not amused by the way things are going. Call me arrogant, but I take pride on being intellectually superior to my inanimate objects. I’ve never lost a debate with my...
