So much for wonderful Live Shows!! You need to wear tight fitting clothes (i am all the time scared for the people, i feel they will soffocate and wont be able to breathe in those clothes), glaring/jarring make-up, Looong earring, speak tam like english, be an expert at messing up names,places etc,and giggle needlessly, and oh yea, play the Wrong request. This is great entertainment.Period.

Devil or the deep sea? Sun Music or Sun TV soap?

Anyway I happened to see some when I was at home. Then I thought would I would do if I was on TV. Its actually tough to come up with new and interesting ways of telling the same things everday.

Anyway read some of your other posts. Pretty serious I would say.

-Ok

Tell me about it. Tamil like English?

Thats not as bad as Enlgish like Tamil.... some of the VJs in SS were like that in its incipient stages.

Sad I tell you. Sometimes I think DD rocks :D
