I am a lot of things! I am Everything! (almost)

…sadness drips and dries
like paint on my mind’s wall
to a cacophony of chaotic cries
Life, uninstall.

There! That has makes me a Poet. Moving on…..

I have a camera. I take photos. That makes me a Photographer.
I have given my voice to 4 radio spots. So I am a Voice Artist.
I have used Windows Movie Maker to make a video. So what if it’s a slide show? That still makes me a Filmmaker.
I have plasticine at home. So I am a clay modeler, ooops, Sculptor.
I have attended a few quizzes, now that is a straight ticket to Quizzer-hood.
I am a Blogger. But obviously. So what if its dead for all practical matters?

So where are we now? Lets recap.
Poet. Photographer. Voice Artist. Filmmaker. Sculptor. Quizzer. Blogger. I am turning out to be quite the thing since bread came sliced. But moving on.

I have written short stories. One is up on this blog, called Status Quo. Look for it if you wish. And some more. So that makes me a Story Writer. Now if I can get this and the few other I’ve written laid out in Garamond, get a few copies laser printed, bind it with some random image on the cover, I will be Author too.

Yeah…oooh….lala aha yea….sadness drips and dries sssss
like paint on my mind’s wall……hey yeah
Cacophony! of chaotic cries
Life, uninstall. Uninstallllll yea yea yea yea
(sung to what? A 2-chord progression. A Minor and E major. Simplest)

Look ma! I am a Songwriter too! I am a Guitarist too since I can actually play these 2 chords. And if Justin Beiber is a singer so am I. Anyways Singer-Songwriter is way cooler and kvlt than plain jane ‘singer’.

I know a bit of ProTools and can splice things together in Audacity, does that make me a Sound Engineer?

I know enough Photoshop to apply random filters and bring it together in CorelDraw or Illustrator. I have Shutterstock access so I can download and alter cool vectors to pass them off as mine. So in one shot that makes me an Art Director and Graphic Designer.

In this calendar year I have read 39 books to date. Yep. This year I am keeping track. So I am an Avid Reader.

I have been atop Kudremukh peak. Proves that I am a Trekker. I have spent a few or more hours walking around the Valley of Flowers. So I am a Hiker. Just need to get my BSA SLR into shape and trawl around. Note to self: Become a Cyclist soon. 2nd Note to self: Attend freebie try-before-you-buy workshop on Cocktail Making, Salsa, Kalaripayatt. Wouldn't you like to be called a Dancer? A certified Bartender?

I have a Bajaj Pulsar. Not so often I take it out of the city which I guess makes me eligible for the Biker tag. What else? What else?

Poet. Photographer. Voice Artist. Filmmaker. Sculptor. Quizzer. Blogger. Author. Singer-Songwriter. Guitar player. Musician. Sound Engineer. Art Director. Graphic Designer. Avid Reader. Trekker. Hiker. Biker. I am Everything! Let me take a few minutes off now to download either a CK Prahlad book, and I will return as Management Consultant. Or perhaps I will look up Kotler on Wikipedia an become a Marketing Strategist and Brand Consultant. Ah, there’s so many things I can be. Be back soon.

I had actually coined a word for this some time ago: JOATAMOOT. Jack Of All Trades And Master Of One/Two...

A JOATAMOOT is the best one can hope to be!

Shenoy said...

Good one Thomas. Yep I concur. Being a JOATAMOOT is better than being a JONT-MON! (Jack of no trade, master of none)

Can you walk and chew gum at the same time? If so, then you are also a multi-tasker! :)

Parvathy said...

Shenoy said...

You have many fantasies, you are a dreamer too!
You have chased your dreams, you are pursuer too!
You have spoken umpteen lies, you are a liar too!
You have stolen many hearts, you are a thief too!

Now the question is what is REAL You?

Shenoy said...

that's a nice one, WHOAMI asking WHAT R U? :)
*Whoami, the real me? hard to tell. even quoting eminem as he once sang, 'i am whatever you say i am' would be a cop out. i guess i am just me, whoever that is.
