5 Reasons why Twitter is better than Facebook

4

It’s showdown time. Almost major part of the young lot uses both of the social networking platforms. But today I am here to tell you why the micro- blogging site Twitter is way better than the Social Networking revolutionary platform- Facebook. I have nothing against Facebook and personally I use both but lately I’ve been spending more time browsing on my Twitter timeline than on my Facebook Feeds.

So I thought and self intervened my mind, and here I am giving you 5 reasons why Twitter is way better than Facebook. And yet again this is purely subjective my opinions may vary and if they don’t, let’s drink to that!

1.      Thank God! For the word limit.

The word limit is like a blessing in disguise. The 140 character limit has spared us all the life’s drama and unnecessary Bollywood lyrics updates. I mean really, I have no interest in knowing why your heart goes hmmmm?!? Spare me the horror. Besides all the unnecessary status updates, Twitter very smartly helps us express in very few words. Use right words, keep your shit precise, and leave. Thank you for the entertainment.

2.      Celebrities notice me.

Unlike Facebook which is overcrowded and vast, Twitter is concise and compact. And I can tag my favorite celebrity in a particular thought and might get Retweeted (Dream come true eh?). The fact that celebrities are quiet active on the micro-blogging site makes it even fascinating. It’s like 24 hour sneak into my celebrities life (not in some creepy stalker way). But I see very less celebrities on Facebook as compared to Twitter. At least I do.

3.      Say aye for ‘Contests’

This is the fun part of the micro-blogging site. Contests by various brands. Of course the brands do it for promotion and publicity but people like me do it for the free gifts. Personally, half of the stuff I own is practically won by me in some Twitter contest. It’s madness but who doesn’t like free gifts.

4.      The Circus of Trending Hashtags.

And do I even have to mention the Hashtag madness. #Never I don’t think so. One Hashtag and you are on the list of world’s opinions. Be it anything, #Twerk #Love #ArnabGoswami #Aloknath #Kejriwal, it puts you on the trending map. And I kid you not trending on global basis is ome serious shit!

5.      Not taken down by the’ Family Brigade’

And last but not the least, I see myself in a Family Free zone. I don’t have annoying aunties and uncles hovering over my head with each and every life update I make on the micro-blogging site. I hope it stays this for a while because we need our bullshit outlet medium.  So I suggest till the time your parents and clingy relatives discover this particular social networking platform exploit it with posting on your opinions and carry on with the mindless jibber jabber. May your brain blossom within the 140 character limit.

5 Best Odd Jobs in the World

3

If you think jobs circle is only limited to being a doctor, an Engineer or for that matter working in an ad agency, then you are completely mistaken. There are a set of jobs that are completely unique and with a handsome payscale.  Please don’t underestimate the power of human beings to think outside the box. They really do and when they do they make sure you drool.

5. Island Caretaker 1

Imagine an Island. Pearl blue water, fresh green tress, a modern state of the art house well equipped with all the latest technology (with wifi); no I’m not describing you a celebrity mansion- infact it’s a job. Yes you heard me right. There is a job called an Island Caretaker; your job profile includes keeping the island clean, taking care of the surroundings and for all of this you get handsomely paid. Best odd job ever and you walk away rich!

4. Panda Nurturer/Caretaker 2

Firstly, let me tell you this one little thing about pandas- it’s an obsession! Once you get hold on how they are as animals there is no way out! (Pointers out of personal experience). So now imagine taking care of this easy going breed of animals that pretty much eat, sleep, play and poop. But it aint of a less challenging job. You practically have to take care of a panda, like how a mother takes care of her child. And the handsome treat, of course you get paid like a mad scientist but nothing can overpower the fact that you get to spend your days with pandas. (P.S. It’s been my lifelong dream)

3. Waterslide Tester 3

Ever wondered who quality check the water slides at all the water parks? Professional water slide tester. SAY WHAT? Yes humans, there are a bunch of fun loving weirdos who do this for a living. Their job profile needs no further description they do what we pay to do and enjoy for a day, instead they get paid to make our fun time super awesome (such a noble cause I tell you). It seems so much fun to just lazy around from Water Park to Water Park testing freaking Waterslides your life. 

2. Toy Creator 4

I will not believe a single person on this planet, who says they don’t have a thing for toys. Liars! And some people embrace it like their religion. Let me tell you this. There are a bunch of human beings, who dedicate their lives in creating new and exciting range of toys. (Dedicating because, they give kids a reason to be kids and adults too). I myself sometimes have these crazy ideas of weird dinos taking over our planet and ruling it. I need toys now to represent my dreams. They are the holy odd breed I must tell you.

 1. Mystery Shopper 5

Imagine getting paid for shopping. Ladies thank me later (and gentlemen too). I have come across a dream job though it’s odd. Mystery Shopping. These set of individuals shop for companies at various shops to help them audit their staff and merchandising and what not?! Well I really don’t know about anyone else, but I’m surely trying my luck in this profession. I mean shopping for a livng is like a dream come true, practically for everyone on this planet (Now gentlemen don’t go denying that you wouldn’t want to buy brand new gadgets). I see that twinkle in your eyes people, I’m standing in the same god damn line.

I bet if you are tired and bored of the same mundane professions, I bet these will light up your working experience. Got to go, need to apply for a Panda Caretaker post. Peace.

5 Reasons why having a Brother is Fabulous

tumblr_n0xaulBf8H1s7ipdto1_500

1349750708729_7688663

Hello there humans. The chill outside has turned a fuse on inside of my brain. And it got me thinking how lucky I am to have a brother.  Besides sharing the last piece of pizza and strategically hidden bag of chips, I do feel I am blessed (sometimes in a very cunning way).  Just remember two’s always a party; and when it’s your own blood, its house thrashing – mind wobbling kinda party. (Excuse my hyperbole, my sibling needs that kind of theatrics of words; you see he is a drama queen). So why I think having a brother is simply fabulous.

5. You have got an extra brain to think.

Ever wondered what it is like to have an extra brain. Ask a person with a notorious brother. The kind of pranks and circus you can indulge in. Ha! And you never go out of ideas, because he is like your back up fuel. And he’ll always add fuel to the fire of your ideas. Light away suckers!

 4. Your personal bodyguard

I don’t need no pepper spray or Swiss knife. I am well equipped and by that I mean I have a full time body guard around me. My brother. It pays off to be tiny and having an older brother who closely resembles big foot. It scares weirdos away. And times when he is not around speed dialing pretty much awakens the beast. Now you tell me, am I lucky or what?!?

3. My well secured Piggy Bank.

I aint no economist and by that I am nowhere close to saving up my money and ‘thoughtfully’ using it. I have a weak heart; I buy everything that remotely touches my heart and bam! I am broke in a minute.  That’s when my brother saves the day and me from being a complete beggar.  He practically acts as a bank for all my hard earned money. The best possible bank anyone could ever ask for eh?

2. Free of Cost Therapist

There are so many things, people or even events that wreck havoc in our brains, that making it through the day without venting out all the day’s fatigue to someone is impossible.  Plus all the good shows and music can’t keep you company all the time (I wish, it did). Voila! That’s when the genie’s out of the bottle (Precisely, my genie needs a bigger bottle, huge bottle). My brother can be a tough nut to crack but he is a good listener. Not only mine but I guess all the brothers are hands down, great listeners.  And that make them a Grade A+ Therapist.  They listen; they think; they ease.

1. A Shoulder to Cry On

And last but not the least, no one and by that I mean NO ONE on this planet can ease your pain like brothers do. They have these weird ways to make your smile intact on your face. Trust me when I say this, the fart jokes work! And the long drives too. Plus sometimes those they stack our secret snack cabinet and leave a funny note like “Fatty, go easy”. But with that kind of love I’d rather go fat than say no to that loving gesture.

Top 5 Best Lyric Videos

tumblr_n1250wk6hB1rvkqv4o1_500

A very recent phenomenon to take your internet by its throat is the – Concept of a LYRIC VIDEO. Let me take the liberty and explain it you what it entails. Basically you can read the lyrics of the song which pops up on your screen simultaneously when you play the song on YouTube; it’s just like a well made lyric video of the original track of an artist. Please don’t mistake it to be a fan lyric video (which I don’t really blame you for, YouTube is stormed with those kinds of videos).

So, lately a few artists have been following a certain pattern- first they release the lyric video and then the official music video of the song. And that caught my attention. I must say some artist did really take equal amount of pain to make a flawless lyric video. Hence I’ve created a list of top 5 best lyric videos so far. (My opinion may vary but if it doesn’t *Hi5*). So here goes the list.

No.5. Boys Like Girls “Be Your Everything’

The entire concept of the lyric video caught my attention. The paper craft game we used play in our school and the simplicity of just using a single composition notebook is completely amazing. I think it puts in a sincere effort in what the song tries to convey plus the typography of the lyrics is simple and readable. It makes it a cute little video to watch.

No.4. Cassettes Won’t Listen “Falling Apart”

I particularly like this artist. But the reason I can’t get this song out of my head is because the first time I looked up for this artist on YouTube I came across this mind-blowing lyric video of one of his song. And the video just builds itself and carries itself. If you see the video, you’ll understand what I exactly want to say. The typography and the whole idea of Falling Apart, the emotions and the fluidity of words falling out of your mouth is JUST AMAZING. Take a look.

No. 3. U2 “No Ordinary Love”

Ok, U2. That should somehow sum the amount of art and soul the song pours out. But they have intensely put forward a screen full of chalked words and equally amazing street art. This particular track is from the soundtrack for the movie “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”. Let me not ruin it anymore, take a look for yourself.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC3ahd6Di3M]

No.2. John Mayer “Paper Doll”

Well, talk about doing something out of the box. This video ‘fits’ in perfectly. Literally! I really want to meet the person who conceptualized the whole video. Some serious balls you need here to push such a video out on such a beautiful song. The quirkiness just soothes my senses.  Let me also tell you this, there are extremes to the video viewing- in the sense you either might love the video or just simply hate it (or find it very annoying- not the song just the lyric video). So take a look and pick which side are you on.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=565tXd1UyYI]

No.1. Katy Perry “Roar”

And the number 1 spot had no debates in my head. Ms.Perry always does something that stands out. And the lyric video of her single Roar takes the throne. What do we do first thing in the morning? We check our phones and from there starts our day. And Ms.Perry very aptly has captured the whole essence in her song in bright texts and cute little emojis. God! It’s so refreshing to see creativity work its magic.  Let me tell you this I still watch this video. Now let me allow you to enjoy the video too.
