Don't you ever talk shit about Coldplay. It'll be your last day on earth. Huge Arctic Monkeys fan here. Crazy Inception fan. Don't you ever say that cartoons and anime are only for kids. I read a lot, I game a lot, I play a lot, I'm a movie buff, I listen to music 24/7. So WHAT? I have messy hair, what's it to you?

2010 Year End Blog

2010…What an year it was. Did a lot of things! (Not everything -__-) Anyway, 10 hours to go for 2011 :D YAY! I will start my year end blog with,


2008 was a gaming year for me. 2009 was an anime year for me. And 2010 was a movie year for me. I saw 107 movies this year. Yeahhh!!! A new record, because in 2008 I saw about 75 movies, and in 2009 I had seen only 55 movies (disappointing according to me) 2010 is definitely a movie year for me. Mostly I saw mystery/ thriller movie along with classical movies especially Alfred Hitchcock’s. But what made this year even more incredible? One word: INCEPTION.

My top 5 2010 movies:

5. Kick Ass

4. Toy Story 3

3. The Social Network

2. Shutter Island

1. Inception

Kick Ass. Amazing sound effects and amazing fighting scenes. Spotlight of the movie HITGIRL!!! :I never play!” She pawned everyone in the movie!!

Toy Story 3 is the best of the trilogy. Pixar doesn’t disappoint at all. When you see the movie, you wont even notice that they are actually toys. They feel like real people. And Pixar movies always make me cry. Spanish Buzz will always make my laugh :D I remember I was the only one who was “ROFL-ing” in the theaters filled with teeny kids.

The Social Network. When the movie is directed by David Fincher (Se7evn, Fight Club) it’s a must see. And I wasn’t wrong. It was great!! Though Mark Zuckerberg said that the story was not entirely true, it still gave us an idea on how Facebook was made. And oh boy, Justin Timberlake was good in the movie. Hate him though.

Shutter Island. Had read the book recently before the movie released. The book was amazing (coming to the part) And the movie didn’t disappoint. It even stayed true to the book and it was just like I imagined. “Why you all wet baby?”

Inception. Greatest movie of all time. I came, I saw, I fainted! I remember the first time seeing the movie. I couldn’t even breathe after the ending. Literally. I was ONLY thinking about Inception. Christopher Nolan outdid himself in this one. Easy to admit, it’s even better than The Dark Knight. Hell! It’s the greatest movie of all time according to me. I couldn’t get enough of it, so I saw Inception 2 more times in theaters. And totally, I saw Inception 8 times today this year. I even bought the DVD. I only need the totem now. (Inception even made y research about dreams even more).

Apart from these movies, I also saw some good flicks like Sherlock Holmes, The Hurt Locker, Casablanca, Psycho, How to Train your Dragon, Iron Man 2, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Se7ev, Pulp Fiction, Zombieland, The Town and HP: DH.

Bottom 4 of 2010:

4. Land of the Dead

3. The Blair Witch Project

2. New Moon

1. Eclipse.

Twlight fans, BRING IT ON!!!


Best book for me this year would be Shutter Island. Completed this book in 5 days ( a new record for me) The ending was terrific. I was like “BULLSHIT” :O Contest, The Interpretation of Murder, Cell and The Good Guy were also good books.

This year I also started writing. Nightfall was my first short story. Then, I went on writing new stuff :D My personal favorite is The Ghost who Wanted a Picture and Runaway.

P.S. Didnt read any manga :(


This was not particularly an anime year for me. I had seen 23 anime series last year. This year I only saw 8 anime series. And the best was Samurai Champloo, Mushishi and Lovely Complex. Hope 2010 is an anime year for me again.

Mio and Yiu. Moe Moe Kyun! HAD TO SAY IT :D :D :D


2010 was also a music year for me. Mainly because I discovered many new bands I started loving and also because of my guitar :D It was on May, I bought my Pluto Acoustic :D My Gitah :D Started classes from July and since then, I have to admit it, I have developed my ears for music. Till last year, I only used to listen. But since this year, I listen more. (Don’t know how to put this in words :|) You develop a special bond with your guitar. Even if the guitar gets a scratch, I go “WHOA NOOOOOOO!!!” Started learning guitar right from the basic leads, to chords and arpeggios. This year I’m definitely going to perform somewhere!!!!

The new bands I became a great fan of were Arctic Monkeys. First song I listened was “I bet you look good on the dance floor” in VH1 and since that day I have listened to almost all of their songs even the B-sides :D Apart from Arctic Monkeys, I became a fan of Arcade Fire, The Strokes, The National and Spoon! Coldplay remains in the number 1 spot. Viva la Coldplay :D I found my “place” in music too which is alternate rock, post punk revival and indie rock! And I’m no gangsta and dawg. Please -__- That’s not me.


Sadly, this was not a gaming year for me at all. I have a dud PC at home, and I’m tired of playing the old games in my PS2. Still had a great time with Shadow of the Colossus. I did play many other new games in my friends place. Call of duty modern Warfare, NFS Shift, Batman Arkham Asylum, RE5, Crysis, Far Cry 2, Battlefield Bad Company, Medal of Honor, DiRt, Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, Mirror’s Edge and many more.


Whoa! Long blog, this is turning out to be :O That’s why I’m going to write this section in a nutshell.

Jan – June : SKIP! Don’t even want to talk about it! Nuff said.

*May : Bought my guitar :D

June – December : I became a college student officially. I’m glad I chose BBA over BCA. MSU BBA is the best!!! I don’t know how my life would be now if I wasn’t in MSU BBA. I met lots of new friends in college, and a few folks became my very good friends :) (You guys rock my life!!) 2010 was a movie year for me, like I said before, but it’s also a “friends” year :D Had a great time with you all! First year will be an adventures year. I bunked a lot! A LOT!!! Yep, there were exams, every month, but we still had fun and roamed around the city :P

SANKALP. I became a part of the editorial team of my college’s annual magazine. And oh boy, 4 months of unforgettable memories :)

P.S. College rocks. School sucks!

2010 was also a year of two coincidence. One was a BIGGIE :O

And this year, for the first time, a friend of mine actually loved the gift I gave. It feels really good, to see that look on a friends face (the big smile, the surprise), after working on a gift for days :)

Sachin Tendulkar. 2010 was his year. He broke so many records. I will always remember his 200* against South Africa. Only a legend like him can hit a double century in ODIs. You're THE MAN :D

That’s about it. I will wrap up my year end blog. 2010 started off with a big BAD (bad bad bad) BANG but ended with a BIG WONDERFUL BANG :D

Welcome 2011. Goodbye 2010.

(Man, we are getting old >_>)


  1. We got old.. :(

    Nice one Viveck!
    June-December phase.. I have same views!!
    You Rock!! :)

  2. June - December had some of the best parts of 2010 :D Unforgettable ones!

  3. Cool, man!
    Even I got to watch loads of movies....but since I restricted to my friends' favourites, there are hardly any which would come under the bad-movies category.

    Guitar FTW =D

    BTW, what's the BIG coincidence?
