Nickelback :: Dark Horse

A “dark horse” is phrase that describes someone who used to be unknown and is now suddenly famous. Dark Horse is Nickelback’s sixth studio album and since the band has had some crazy commercial success maybe the title is tongue-in-cheek. A lot of critics hate these guys, but the sales speak loud and clear—the fans love them. Dark Horse has the same post-grunge sound of their other work and the band deals with the themes we’ve come to expect—getting stupid with friends, ladies who’ve done them wrong and the hard life of some working class dudes who happened to make it big. Nickelback is good if you don’t dig too deep—these songs work best as background or as a quick listen on the radio.

Fun Facts

  • The band records in Chad Kroeger’s barn that he converted into a studio.
  • Dark Horse was certified platinum on December 9, 2008 after only three weeks after its release[/kwlink].
  • The album’s producer, Mutt Lange, also worked on records by AC/DC, Def Leppard and Shania Twain.

Fall Out Boy :: Folie à deux

The latest Fall Out Boy abum is crammed with stadium-sized rock and resonating anthems that will stay in your head for days after you hear them. If you like your pop punk and your boys in make-up, this is the album for you. The lyrics of the first single, I Don’t Care, read “I don’t care what you think/as long as it’s about me”—it seems like the band is aware of their popularity and the backlash that comes along with it. Nevertheless, Pete Wentz and the boys bring back the sexy riffs and heartbreaking lyrics you remember, but the self-pitying angst of their other work seems lessened—and this is a good thing. Maybe the boys are growing up!


Fun Facts

  • The album was originally slated for release on November 8, 2008 (Election Day), but the band decided they didn’t want to piggyback on the election hype, so they pushed back the release date to December 16, 2008.
  • Catch Me If You Can, a track originally released online by Pete Wentz, eventually showed up on The Quilt—a record by Fall Out Boy’s friends, the Gym Class Heroes.
  • The album has lots of guest stars including Debbie Harry from Blondie, Elvis Costello, Lil Wayne, Pharrell, Panic at the Disco and The Academy Is....
  • Folie à deux means “madness of two” and is a psychiatric syndrome (like paranoia) shared by two people.

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.

It was worse than it intended to be.
