3 random disconnected posts, one that is just to assuage my guilt for always being mean to Akshay, the other that came up in the comments from Karthik (congrats Karthik! Your first fanfic suggestion!), and the 3rd was something I said as a joke in the TGIF post but now I kind of want to do it for real.
See? I listen! You have a lengthy argument about the olden days when men were men and chests were chests, and I provide you with images! I considered a fanfic, but I can’t come up with a plot that revolves around chest hair (something 101 Dalmatians inspired about fur coats?). I’m sorry! Even my imagination has limits.
I just spent 4 hours straight on work phone calls, I am tired, I don’t want to write a think-y post, I just want to be happy and indulgent! If you are in a similar state, I am here for you with sexy videos.
5I already posted my first 25 reasons, here are the final 25 to get us all the way up to 49 and one for every year of your life!!! Happy 50th! (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
50 years old today! Making him the middle child of the old school 90s stars. Younger than the Khan “triplets”, but older than Ajay. Anyway, Akshay is so big, he definitely deserves a full list of reasons, one for every year. And he is so old, that I am going to have to split those reasons in half! So, here are the first 25, right after midnight Chicago time. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
Well, I’ve been putting this off, because I didn’t have much to say. And also because a got a nice string of abuse on my no-spoilers review. Which is why I am a little mad at this movie. Because it’s leaving me open for abuse! Being so political that I can’t avoid commenting on the politics, even though I want to run a nice film analysis blog that only deals with social issues in generalities, not specifics. And clearly it is political, because there are angry people looking for me to say bad things about it. Oh well, I’ll spoil it for you all anyway, and maybe someone will leave a nice comment on this one.
Well, that was an interesting movie going experience! One half a charming unusual love story, one half a massive Modi propaganda movie. And then a hidden third half in a parallel dimension that is what the movie really wanted to be about and couldn’t. The movie I thought the trailer was promising us.
Happy Raksha Bandhan! A holiday I don’t get to celebrate at all, because there are no brothers in my family. Yes, even if I count cousins. All girls, all the time, both mother and father’s side of the family. But, at least I can watch movies and pretend this is what it would be like if I had a brother or a cousin-brother. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)
(as always, if you have a favorite video for the holiday, let me know in the comments!)
Now, if I am following this correctly, the thinking goes “men wear sweater vests in mountains-many children’s boarding schools are in mountains because it is supposed to be healthier-young men in sweater vests makes us think they are teenagers”. But the way in which these sweater vests come across can vary greatly image to image.
Happy Friday! It was pouring rain this morning, and now it is blazing sunshine. Which is making me think, “Sunglasses!” It’s not the most original photo series idea, but it is always good. Because sunglasses obscure your eyes, which make you look more otherworldly and better than us mortals. Also, easier to see you as just manmeat, and not a person!
Welcome to Friday! A very silly post this week, to balance the romantic post last week. But I am also going to try for gender parity, so that should be an interesting challenge.
I don’t have that much to say about this movie, really, but I also thought I should put up a post before Naam Shabana comes out. And there is no news today, or anyone’s birthday, or any other possible topic for another post, so I thought I might as well put it up.
When I was putting together the post for last Friday, I ran across a photo of Salman with a puppy. Which lead me down a bit of a movie-stars-and-puppies rabbit hole. And what a lovely way to enter the New Years weekend, with a bunch of movie star and puppy photos!
Right after I put up my post about how everyone finds spiritual sustenance in different places, I got an urgent message from a friend saying she needed photos of sexy Indian men IMMEDIATELY! Which kind of proves my point. And also suggested another post idea.
Newest tax reports are out, and as of right now, Salman is paying the highest estimated taxes of the film industry. And it might be even higher, because he is suing for a looooooooooot of money from a TV channel.
I am celebrating by NOT having coffee! Because it’s Thursday, and I never have coffee on Thursdays. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, yes. And then I detox for two days, sleep all weekend, and get back on the horse again on Monday. Anyway, I thought it would be a good topic for a theme songs post.
I almost feel bad, I’ve been putting up so many posts beating the war drums against the corporate run studios, it kind of seems mean. But then, they’re corporations! They don’t have feelings.
