Perspective

I just noticed that ELVIS AND LEVIS have all letters in common. What do you call them- anagrams? Was I slow or what? Just happened to be staring at someone's branded T-Shirt and realised this morning on the way to work.


They are both American icons that have found acceptance world wide
They have stood the test of time
They were rebels of sorts
There have spawned a bunch of fakes , the best of which cannot even be the sixth carbon copy of the original


Hail Elvis and Levis!

And yes i saw Honeymoon travels, not at the theatre though and found some of it rather cute, most of it over the top and just loved the dance song with Abhay Deol and some heroine. The soundtrack is pretty catchy too. Dying to see the Smith duo in Pursuit of Happyness.

Analog and Rebus wondered why there is no Men's Day ( refer their comments on the previous post) While it maybe a marketing gimmick, I agree that we must celebrate our fathers, brothers, hubbies and best friends. So I thought I would have a poll. Any date that garners more than 40% of the votes and a minimum of 15 votes will be the day we celebrate Men's Day. Alas the poll was not meant to be but we do have a Men's Day which i will remember to celebrate.

hey this Elvis and Levis theory is pretty interesting.......... some food for thought there!

Honeymoon travels, love the Bengali couple.. like the first half, I think the director was trying to be ironical abt the fact tht the only "perfect couple" are "super people" but wish she had shown i in different way!

Rebus said...

Brands thrive on recognition and we recognize by cognizance of already known fact; so it may very well be a well crafted idea; and you discovered it out.
Hmmph, coming back I still wld go for 3/8 the mars/venus flip.

Ofcourse; VOTE FOR 3RD AUGUST :) .. vote for 3rd August.
I saw the International Men's Day, though not much has been written in it; another peculiar the page was updated on 8 March 2007; so someone got a similar idea to dedicate.
