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)

TGIF Bonus Post: What Sweater Should My Sister Make for Dog Hazel?

My sister is visiting, and has volunteered to make Dog Hazel a little sweater for the winter.  Knitting takes time, so now is the time to pick the pattern so it can be ready by chilly weather.  Dog Hazel has terrible fur, is already cold just with air conditioning, so she definitely is going to need SOMETHING.  But what?

TGIF 2: Additional Chocolate Heroes!!!! The Special Limited Edition High Demand Options

Sorry!  Work was NOT FUN today, so I didn’t get quite as complete and extensive as I should have in my original Chocolate heroes post.  Which just gives me an excuse for an additional post, with the extra special ones, the imported handcrafted special fillings ones (I may have to dig my emergency chocolate box out of the freezer tonight).

TGIF: Chocolate Heroes for Chocolate Day!!!!

Tomorrow is International Chocolate Day (today is fried chicken day in America-July is an unhealthy month).  So I thought I would look at Chocolate Heroes, a phrase specific to Hindi film that makes almost no logical sense and yet you immediately understand what it means.  Well, almost immediately.

Happy 4th of July! Here is the Annual NSFW Independence From Clothes Post!

I put this up last week, a wee bit early, but I am reposting it today.  Partly because I am off at the vacation house with no internet access and I need something to fill the day, but also because this is a very in depth and comprehensive post and it did not get nearly the views it deserved last week, so I think you should all give it a second look.  There is EVERY actor!!!  From Sunil Dutt to Suniel Shetty to Aditya Roy Kapur and even Harshwardhan Rane. A whole fireworks display of manly flesh.  Oh, and I added in a few more photos even since last Wednesday.  Really, it is EPIC. Continue reading

TGIF: Sanjay Inspired, Best Gym Looks

This comes right up to the line of acceptable objectification.  But I think we are still okay, because it’s not like we are saying anything about their basic bodies, or comparing them with non-muscley guys (Abhishek, you are the best), or even muscle to muscle.  Merely in terms of the clothes they have chosen to wear, and the moments they have allowed to be photographed, who is the best?

TGIF (An Early Repost): In Honor of the 4th of July, I Declare Independence…From Clothes (NSFW)

The 4th of July is on a Wednesday this year, so no TGIF.  But I couldn’t forgo this post, especially since there are updates to it for this year, so I am putting it up early.  And sneaking it out mid-afternoon on a Thursday, hoping that it doesn’t permenantly damage my brand.  Whatever, it’s a long week, sometimes you can’t wait until Friday!

TGIF: Eid Mubarak! Men in Pathani Suits!

I did a TON of research on this.  And turns out there is no such thing as a “Pathani suit”.  there are various specific things that it could be, traditional garb in the North Indian/Pakistani cultures, but what is generally called “Pathani” is really just loose Salwar and a very long Kameez.

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)

TGIF: Birthday Girl Face Off! Dimple Versus Shilpa Versus Amrita Versus Sonam

Well, this is an interesting little burst of birthdays.  Ekta is in here too, but she’s not a professional face person, so I’m not going to mix her in with the rest.  But I think it is fair for Dimple, Shilpa, Amrita, and Sonam to all challenge each other.

TGIF: Wedding Outfits!!!! Pick Your Favorites

Yaaaay!  A super fun one inspired by Sonam’s Party of the Century wedding earlier this week.  Wedding dresses!  Combining both the full formal wedding sari, and the fun reception outfits, so we get two sets of dresses to gaze at.
