The story :
I used to have this nice collection of movies on my laptop and to tell the truth they were hogging space and making the dibba slow. So I spent some moolah and got a 400 GB monster once and for all. A solution to all my binary data storage needs. One fine afternoon, after being on that piece of metal for a few days, they suddenly decice to go away ; thanks to ME ! To put it here in short, they vanished into thin air because some partitioning didn't go as planned and I was lazy enough to move them back to the dibba and then create the partitions.

Why the italics in the list :
Those are the movies I recovered thanks to other connoisseurs who share the same interests in cinema as your humble blogger here.

The best part :
I had tried using some so called 'undelete' appz. All I recovered was a clip from the movie The 25th Hour starring Edward Norton. This is a shot from the clip. What a wonderful pair of words staring at me !

P.S. :
If u r intrigued, here is a link to the ulti-machaoo dialogues that are in that clip and the reason why I kept that clip. Dialogues on WikiQuote

In which I get my 15 seconds of fame!
Yes! I vividly remember introducing you and Himadri to John Cusack's sweet nothings in the movie.
The F-word clearly owes big time to the scriptwriter.
