One of the simplest pleasures known to man is the one we often take for granted. I talk of our ability to transcend into the amazing world of music by plugging in two earbuds connected by wires to a chip. Like quite a few of you, I have no qualms admitting that all said and done, music is my love eternal! If by now you are scratching your head and wondering why I am spewing out this philosophical verbiage out of the blue, the answer is fairly simple.
I was happily listening to pop music when I heard the song “Breakin’ a sweat” by Skrillex for the first time. I had heard about Dubstep sub-genre of electronic music before, but never paid much attention to it because it was too “acid-like” for my taste. However, this particular song created in collaboration with the members of The Doors (only one of the most epic rock bands of all time), appeared to be like nectar to my soul! I heard it once, couldn’t believe my ears, and then kept going.
A few days and about a hundred replays later, I now wonder if the God(s) above are rockin’ out to this one as well. What this song did for me was much beyond a simple eargasm (yes, this word does exist, no matter what my editor says!) This song opened my eyes to the whole world of diverse, beautiful, and tightly-knit dubstep music. I have been a hard-core Electronica-nut, from before mainstream artists (and Justin Beiber unfortunately) started using it in their creations. From small gigs in lesser-known clubs and home-based music studios of my friends, to a few of the biggest concerts on planet earth, I’ve seen Electronica grow and transform. I think the process has come full circle with Skrillex’s insanely popular Bangarang (all links below), the song that made more than 50 million views on the tube.
I hope that Skrillex, and other incredibly talented Dubstep artists will further the cause of electronic music, and that I will continue to have many more eargasms!

I had a long standing suspicion that I’m too retarded. So, I finally braced myself and took an IQ quiz.
Here’s what the IQ scores mean:
Here’s my result:

Take that! (Evil Laugh!)
I just came back from a week-long trip to Shimla-Chandigarh-Panchkula with three of my friends and must I say, it was exhilarating! I will write more about the trip and also post some really cool photos that we took during the trip.
I am running short of time so will catch back later!
I know you must be wondering what on earth am I going to tell you that’ll change your world! But, here’s a good trick that will help you in long run if you are deep into tabbed browsing. Here, try this for yourself:
1. PRESS CONTROL+T (OPENS NEW TAB. Alternatively, open it using mouse)
2. Type in any address. Press go.
3. MIDDLE-CLICK THE MOUSE ON THE NEW TAB.
4. Wallah! The tab is closed and you did not have to scroll all the way to the close button.
Infact, you have learnt two new tricks today, if you are a total newbie. But even a lot of us who are regular at web browsing tend to not know about the second one (the middle mouse trick).
Hope this helps!
[P.S. This was tested on latest versions of Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome, and was found to work. It does not work on Safari for some unknown reason!]
UPDATE: Here’s another trick which might come in handy if you are keyboard savvy: TRY AND PRESS F2 IF YOU ARE USING OPERA… And it’ll open a dialog box for you to quickly type in the website address and take you there when you press ok. (This trick doesn’t work in Firefox).
