    Phoneix, No wonder the news is just a commentary on who killed whom and which accident happened where . Aren’t we all already vexed about this. Photos are just confirming that fact 🙂

    GP, Lots of days of holidays. Unfortunately the project is on the verge of ‘going live’. Anyway Happy Holidays !!

    Forget Munich. Watch Syriana which is on number 2 in the list. One of the best movies I have seen recently.

    Crash was bad, and King Kong was just alright. Ebert’s gone nuts 🙂
