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)
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?
My sister’s visiting, I’m feeling lazy, and it’s World Elephant Day on Sunday. So that’s as good a reason as any to look at people with elephants, right?
Kind of surprised I haven’t done this already. Oh well, we are here now! I don’t promise a comprehensive overview, but I am going to pick out the most strikingly different covers I can find.
I did eyes last week, and now I guess I am just moving up on the body? Seems like maybe it would make more sense to move down, but I have far stronger opinions about hair than I do about noses.
Suggestion courtesy of Meenakshy, I’m gonna do best eyes in Indian film. In multiple categories, because you can’t really compare, like, Madhuri versus young Salman.
National Ice Cream Day is actually Sunday (ooo! FanFic theme?), but I am stealing it for today for TGIF. Because I love those “what food is your favorite star?” kind of posts!
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).
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.
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
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?
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!
I am seriously considering wearing a swimsuit tomorrow, and to mentally prepare myself, I am going to look at allllllllllllllllll the movie stars in their swimwear,
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.
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)
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.
Isn’t it nice when there is a holiday (yes, it’s a real thing, all the stores are giving discounts) to give me a theme for my post? And what could be simpler than to match donuts with movie stars?
Happy Friday! It’s Karan’s Day, obviously there is only one possible topic for today’s post. All the many colors of Karan!!!! 3 separate categories, to reflect his fashion, his family, and his follicles.
On Friday I did a post on random Madhuri photos so we could pick our favorites. I purposefully avoided her iconic looks, thinking that wouldn’t be fair. But Asmita called me out on it, so now a bonus post! Which look is most iconic?
Happy Madhuri’s birthday week (again)! I tried to come up with something clever and original, and all I can come up with is a bunch of photos of Madhuri, which isn’t clever or original at all. Oh well, she was very pretty.
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.
Happy Friday! And Star Wars Day! Maybe no one else cares, but I think the whole Princess Leia look is a good start for a post, Best Braids!
Happy Thursday! I suddenly remembered that I had a Labor Day themed post I should rerun, and then I realized it was left over from September not May, the American Labor Day. Oh well, it’s a good post, I’m sure you won’t mind seeing it twice in a year.
Happy Friday! Sorry this is late, crazy day at work, I had to share my computer so looking at sexy photos was a no-go. On the other hand, we also had a baby visit at work, which inspired this post. Hopefully worth the wait.
You know Dina? Who I used to do the podcasts with and who I always see movies with on Friday nights? Her birthday is this week, and I won’t be able to give her her present beforehand, so instead she will have to make do with this theme post.
