10.13.08 To Dada
I'm gonna keep this short because I really don't what to say here. Twelve days ago, my grandfather (or Dada as I call him) passed away. I wrote a song in his memory. Dada, I hope you like it.
8.25.08 Ballads for Ballots
So heres the basic scoop...I've been getting some good feedback on the website, so I wanted to see exactly how good my songs were and submit them to a lyrics contest. But I'm cheap. More importantly, I'm a broke grad student. So I did some browsing...and found some lyrics contest where you can submit a song for $30. Then I found one which lets you submit for $20. Then another for $15. Then I saw it...a lyrics contests where they pay you!!!! Hhahah, $25 (paid to me) for the entry, $5k for the winner. All you really have to do is make a music video for your favorite political candidate (hahah, actually MUCH easier said than done). Anyway,
I created something I think is pretty good that's posted on the MediaCurves website. After the contest ends, I'll relink the vid if I don't win (hopefully I do!) and let you know how I did. Let me know what you think!

4.11.08 First Live Performance at GT ECESIS!
I'll try to make this short and sweet...but we know that never really happens. Basically, I submitted two songs (Then It Rains and Live Again) to the Georgia Tech ECE online arts magazine (ECESIS), and both were accepted!

4.10.08 "Untitled" is now "Live Again"
So there's been a long delay in making the announcement, but the song "untitled" has officially been changed to "live again." Thanks to my friend (and fan club prez) Sahana Nagananda for figuring out the perfect name :). More dedications and thank yous on the dedications page.
A few things you should know (aka the fine print :) ):
1) The A Cappella songs that I've done are usually about the first minute or so of the song...I usually don't go further than that. It's partially due to the fact that after making all the parts of the song and getting the voices just right (every part you'll hear in those songs is actually me!) I'm too lazy and tired to continue. Its also due to the fact that my 6-year old computer crashes every time I get to the minute-30 mark.
2) Check out carbonleaf.com, weezer.com, and superaloo.com. I'm pluggin' these sites because I used them as "inspiration" to design this website. The coding was done by me using the aforementioned sites as templates, and I figure if I plug them, I won't get sued...
3) Special thanks to my brother Aalap for letting me put this site up under his domain and taking the needed photos for the site without giving me any harassment whatsoever...and believe me, there were a LOT of openings...
4) Please send me any photos you have of me doing anything or anything that works with the theme of this website. I might even add it to one of the pages (and you'll get credit for the awesome pic)
