Last Monday was frenzied. I had to watch the 52nd Grammy Awards (which started at 6 am PST), turn in three pieces (the Animadversion of “The Book of Eli”, Avatar’s Analysis and the Grammy’s, which Farheen does every year) and work on Trailer-Ratings (and Liz, of course, for those who are scratching their heads wondering who Liz is, don’t worry. I haven’t introduced her yet).
Getting back to iMAGES, music really isn’t my forte anymore (not that it ever was), so naturally I forgot all about the event until my alarm reminded me about an hour before the Grammy’s started. There goes what little sleep I get.
Now, the million dollar question is: how does one write three big articles on a deadline and keep his writing style intact? (lately I’ve been very conscious of bad, crippled, unmotivated writing).
The answer is: he can’t. But nonetheless, the three pieces came out okay. After 7 years, it still feels good seeing my name in the paper.
All three articles are published this week (Sunday, February 07, 2010). Their links can be found below.
On another note, by public demand and constant persecution from friends (you know, who you are…meanies), I am putting up official links of our work in this post.
Since the condensation of iMAGES, we’ve been having space problems regardless of our already slashed word count (we’ve already cut most pieces word count to 800 words).
I will be putting up unedited versions of all our works in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format by this month’s end on this blog and the official website.
Meanwhile, these are the links from Dawn.com (the ones I was able to unearth anyway). The Dawn website is missing some of our recent and almost all older works.
Happy surfing 🙂
*Animadversion is our movie review column
*Second Opinion is a part of Animadversion (this is what makes it unique), written by Farheen Jawaid
*Features are, well, just that. Feature articles. We don’t do features often, unless they are really about something we would like to talk about.
