TGIF: For Valentine’s Day, Cutest Couple Photos

First, if you are in a grumpy “I hate romance and love and couples!” mood, that is your right, and you should go watch Anjaam and look at yesterday’s “men in wet shirts” post.  But if your mood is more “falala, happiness and flowers and my boyfriend/husband is so awesome!”, then this will just serve to increase that feeling.  Or, alternatively, if you are in a sort of miserable “there are no happy couples or true love in the world” vibe, this will convince you that is false.  Also, I have a clear and declared winner for the Best Couple Award, you will have to convince me out of it.

TGIT: Post-Valentine’s Blues, We Get a Bonus Photo Post This Week!!!!

I was going to do a bonus fanfic, but judging by view count, the TGIF posts are more popular, so I’m doing that instead.  And a nice Valentine’s one, for us to recover from all the romance and coupliness of yesterday.

TGIF: FilmFare! Who Wore it Best Which Year? Madhuri versus Madhuri, Dia versus Dia, Sonam versus Sonam, Rekha versus Rekha, Shahrukh versus Shahrukh, and Ranveer versus Ranveer

In our discussion on this year’s FilmFare post, we ended up linking back to previous years for reference, which made me think of a TGIF theme!  Why not put up photos from previous years and have people compete with themselves? (index of all TGIF posts here)

DCIB Best of 2017 Awards! Top TGIF, Top FanFic, and Top Editorial!!!!

The final (and most important) awards post: Awards for ME!!!!!  I am a guaranteed winner, because I am only competing against myself.  But let’s see what I won FOR!  Oh, and the most exciting news, thanks to these posts I have a good start on indexing the TGIF and FanFic posts, so look for those indexes to be going up sometime soon.

TGIF: All Women in Anarkalis! For the Women’s March Anniversary Tomorrow

Also, all women in pink!  Because I want to see if I can make joyomama’s head explode in the comments (for those who don’t know, regular commentator joyomama is a fashion historian who writes about gender color preference).  Oh, and also because I’ve gotten a couple of people pushing back against the standard TGIF.  So no objectification and no men and no SRK in this one!

TGIF: All Southern!!!!! Men in Mundus/Lungis

I completely forgot our southerners last week, and I am doing an all-Hindi “Best of 2017” contest, so I really feel like I need to make up for it.  And the best way I can is an Entire Post of Southern Gentleman.  In their native garb.

TGIF: Smoking Men

It’s a pun!  Do you get it?  Because it is men who are smoking hot, and also actually smoking, like smoking cigarettes.  Okay, so it’s kind of a lame theme, but I still have holiday brain, and who knows, maybe seeing all of these photos of themselves will inspire some of these guys to make it a New Year’s resolution to stop smoking.

TGIF Christmas Bonus: Men in Beards! Like Santa!

(A special treat, a second updated and reposted TGIF today!  For Christmas!) I am sure if I wanted to google “sexy Santa” I could find it.  But I don’t want to do that.  So instead, I am going to limit myself to one Santa-like element, and look for beards.  Sexy men with beards.

TGIF: Happy Salman Week! Salman’s Most Famous Feature

This is a re-posted post, but I don’t have time for a new one because I have to run around and go to Tiger Zinda Hai with my family (I think Salman would approve of both seeing his new movie and the family time).  And anyway, I don’t think it is possible to improve on the post I did for his birthday last year.

TGIF: Happy Christmas and World AIDs Day! Women (and a few men) in Red

Happy Friday!  My goodness this has been a frustrating day.  The second I get in to anything at work the phone rings and I have to stop.  Whether it is blogging or sending an email or doing accounting stuff for work-work, I just don’t have long enough to be able to focus on it.  I am writing this right now at about 2pm, we’ll see if I am able to finish and publish this thing before midnight.  Anyway, Red!  For AIDs and Christmas!!!

TGIF: Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Something I am Very Thankful for, Men in Blue Jeans!

I was all nice and daughterly and granddaughterly yesterday, now it’s time to be completely inappropriate and put up my TGIF post!  And as a special treat, I am posting it early in the day.  It should still keep you entertained all day, since I think this is my longest TGIF post ever.  And it also includes a complex and objective rating system, that you can feel free to disagree with, modify, or use for your own ratings in the comments

TGIF: It’s Snowing! Let’s Look at Men in Snow!

Snow isn’t exactly the magical wonderment for me that it is for people in Indian movies.  It’s been a part of my life for 4 months out of the year (at least) as long I can remember.  But even so, there is something about the first snowfall of the year that is still kind of magic.  Anyway, men in snow!  Let’s look at them!

TGIF: 6 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday, the 6 Flavors of SRK

Sadly, this is the last Friday that will be having entirely SRK TGIF posts.  Although, happily, that does mean the return of Prabhas and other southern heroes to our lives.  Plus John Abraham, Arjun Rampal, and all the other old favorites.  Anyway, for our last post, which is also the 6th day before the birthday, I thought the 6 Flavors of Ayurvedic diet/medicine might be nice.  In a mixture of images and quotes.

TGIF: Men Lying Down

Okay, how can I say this classily?  There is a certain kind of pose which seems to say “yes, climb on top of me and enjoy yourself”.  That is the kind of pose that I am looking for this week. You know, so you can pretend you are kneeling on top of them throwing rose petals or something in a chaste and romantic manner. (I promise, next week will be something silly and innocent again!  I don’t mean to be running a soft porn site, truly!)

TGIF: By Popular Request, Manly Men With Chest Hair

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.
