Everything you wanted to (n)ever know about OneKnightStands !
About OneKnightStands aka OKS aka Awesome Name!
Just a naughty name with a naughty pun. That is what reflects me and my state of mind. OKS is all about bringing naughty and saucy awesomeness to the table. Sometimes spiced and more often than not, diced – as in dicing off all that is crap, fat and presenting to you pure, lean, awesomeness. All that I just wrote doesn’t make any sense grammatically, but in the OKS universe, we don’t need grammar. In OKS universe, awesome is the language we speak.
Why was OKS Created? It was the next level of blogging. As in, I had been blogging on Blogger and WordPress for sometime, and in Jan 2008, I thought, why not spit it out on a personal domain rather than rely on those free services.
The sole aim and purpose for the creation of OKS was to retain my stability of mental state by venting out all the insanity and random thoughts that occur in my head. It is essential for my survival and over the years, has been sort of a therapy for me. Not that I am sick or anything ( I think!)
What is OKS about?
So OKS started off as a mix-mash of a lot of things. Things like Anime, Comics, Rock Music, besides the usual stuff which still rules the turf now – i.e. Bollywood. And then one day, I decided to stretch my arms and move them to a new domain – and hence, 9e3k.com was born ( pronounced ‘GEEK’, you get it) . And now, the new and improved OKS is all about….
BOLLYWOOD: Yes, it is the fuel which keeps me burning, and the force which pushes me to write. If it was not for my love of Bollywood, I would not have sat down and written my first movie review. I love Bollywood, every aspect of it, its imperfections, flaws, melodramas, ott-costumes and also the deep emotional impact, family, festivals and shamelessly glittering hues -I love all of it. I love the songs and I love the dance.And I worship RD Burman and Amitabh Bachhan. And as we look at Bollywood’s new wave of ideas taking shape on the big screen, we can say: All we hear is Bollywood GaGa!!
Seriously dude, what’s with the title?
It is just a desperate attempt to sound very cool. There you go, I said it.
And if I were to seriously justify the title, I’d say – I am the Knight, and these posts, are my stands / opinions on stuff that I like, love, hate and despise – some more indulgent than others.
What is OKS not about?
To the zillion spam mails that we get about elongation of genitalia or the Yahoo Lottery that I luckily won, we don’t endorse any of those. OKS is also not about sponsoring any random products or services. Adsense was put on this blog, because it made an impression that we made money. But after almost 16 months, and the great fortune of 100$ that we made (and which Google never paid), it remains on the same spot because it has more or less blended with the template. OKS is not about making money, but expressing the deep-rooted desires and love for all that we discussed above.
So, if you are looking for us to write sponsored posts for reviews of products, or Tourist package deals, or Siddha medicine, please move on.
We try our best to honour what we like and love. And more than often, these are legends which have changed our lives- from the cinema of the Big B, to the music of RD, or Bollywood as a whole.
We salute to the great geniuses of all these greats through our posts, and also our Yearly Specials.
<There is a slight twist to the honour section though, i.e.The Annual Bollywood Razzies, you know what that means.>
Rakhi Sawant, The entire MTV Roadies Gang and the b#$%^es of Splitsvilla, Himmesss…., the Clan of B-Grade Bollywood ( you know who are the members). There is no space, sympathy or words for you all on this Blog.
More than often, the language here could be a bit harsh on you. So, if you are easily offended, please try harder not to be, and keep reading. All expressions and views on this Blog are exclusively personal opinions and in no way are meant to marr or demean anyone (except for some, e.g. the guy at the counter, who made me wait for 2 hours to just get a signature).
More often than not, Bollywood dialogues in Hindi are featured and hence, I’d give my best shot at expressing it in English. But this might not be the best translation (or at least not the dictionary meanings)
Other than that, just have an open mind, open heart and open eyes.
