TGIF: Bachelors and Bachelorettes! Match Them Up or Pick One For Yourself!

This was VERY VERY difficult to research!!!!  Not as much information as I would wish on relationship status of the famous.  I decided not to include people who were married, or engaged, or in that all-but-engaged level like Rajkummar or Varun.  But just dating someone like Ranbir and Alia, fair game!  And I know I probably missed people (Arjun Rampal now divorced, Sushmita Sen never married, Tabu, etc). I am posting this earlier than the usual TGIF just so we all have time to make full careful considerations and decisions.

Happy Veteran’s Day! To Celebrate, Men in Uniform!

Happy Veterans Day!  Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and there weren’t nearly as many celebrations as I expected.  I guess 100 years from now everything we are going through will seem very small and out of date too.  That’s kind of comforting.  Anyway, enough of that, hot guys in uniform!

TGIF: It’s Snowing, I’m Cold-Celebrities As Hot Drinks

I may be failing at my “only have coffee three times a week and then the caffeine doesn’t get to you” system.  I am sitting in my office on a no-caffeine day dreaming of coffee.  Maybe I should get a hot chocolate instead and see if I can trick myself.

TGIT: HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRABHAS AND SHAHRUKH!!!!! Let’s Compare Your Bodies Piece By Piece

You know how it is wrong to objectify people and think of them as only their outer surface and blah blah?  Put a pin in that for a second and try to forget it, we are going to vote on who has the best body between Shahrukh and Prabhas!  Top to bottom, piece by piece.

Silly Sunday: Random Harvest! A completely Ridiculous Plot that is Just Begging to Be Remade in India

I’m exhausted after yesterday, so I’m not coming up with new stories, instead I am lifting a ridiculous plot from a classic Hollywood film/British novel.  A plot so ridiculous that it really belongs in India any way, it was wasted in Hollywood.

Lazy Tuesday Discussion Post: Recasting Favorite Sci-Fi Books with Indian Actors

I thought the long Shahrukh interview post would give us plenty to talk about, but there aren’t that many comments over there.  From which I can only assume, no one loves Shahrukh any more.  I am sure he is desperately refreshing the page thinking “surely SOMEONE has something to say about me!  Surely it can’t be that no one is interested any more?”  Anyway, since you all find Shahrukh boring, I will bring up a new topic for us to talk about.

TGIF: Patriotic! Stars in White, Orange, and Green

Well, it’s the Friday after Independence Day.  I should do something patriotic, right?  And all I can think of is the Indian colors.  Oh well, good enough.  My brain is fried after writing my two recent brilliant Hindi Film 101 pieces (read them!  They are very good, even if they don’t have sexy photos and star gossip)

Silly Sunday: Ice Cream Themed! A Spy Movie with John and Prabhas and a Love Story with Shahrukh and Kajol

Happy Sunday!  I have to go lead a meeting at church in a bit, but first I get to be totally frivolous and ridiculous with the Silly Sunday stories.  Hopefully I don’t mix this up with my meeting agenda and accidentally start reading it aloud.

TGIW: Dhoti Men, Because My Boss is Out of the Office Today

My boss is gone today which means I can look at photos on my computer without fear of being observed and judged.  Well, my co-workers might judge me, but whatever, I don’t care what they think.  And I was just talking with Meenakshy about who looks good in a Dhoti, so why not do a Dhoti post?  Similar too but different from my previous Lungi post. (for the purposes of this post, “Dhoti” means any single cloth that is used as a wrap skirt by an Indian man)

Silly Sunday: Sexy Films for Hrithik, Star Romance for Anyone

It came up in discussion that Hrithik has one tragic gap in his filmography: not enough straight sexiness!!!!  And, as his impending inevitable sexy horizon comes ever closer (have you see Rakesh?  Not a good sign for middle-aged Duggu!), it is increasingly important that he grabs these chances while he has them.  Also from discussion, why is there no movie about a movie star falling in love with an average girl?  It seems like such an obvious fantasy!

Bahubali Anniversary Post! Bahubali Remixed, Versions From Other Eras

Well, it’s the B2 anniversary today.  And I truly have NOTHING left to say about it.  I’ll be reposting my index of full coverage in case you want a trip through memory lane, but in terms of thematic analysis and so on, I am empty.  However, I can always write fanfic!!!!  So the best I can do for new content is remix the plot and set it in different eras.

Silly Sunday: FanFic We Wrote on Monday!

This was fun, I didn’t have to write anything this week!  We wrote it all together on Monday in bits and pieces, I just had to pull it together and make sense of it for this.
