My blog was started for TES – Technology Entertainment and Science. But I did not do justice to entertainment since I have written only 1 article in that.
Let me compromise a bit – an article about my favorite movies and songs in 2012 – which I never want to miss. Some of them may have released before 2012, but I’ve heard them this year and thanks to my music freak cousin for sharing most of them
