and now for something completely different: SKANKED!

I'm watching my one song DVD, Everybody on the Dance Floor, so that I can better play along with Totally Basmatic's Bollywood Songs DVD Week, and on the fifth song in I have hit my wall for shiny writhing women (or the wall of shiny writhing women, morelike). Blame it on Musafir's "Saaki."

I realize, of course, that I'm not the target market for this imagery, and maybe that's what's jarring for me, because in many ways I feel that Bollywood and I meet each other's needs almost perfectly and I respond so enthusiastically to most of what I watch. Anyway. Yuck. And it's not that I begrude Bollywood its opportunity to attract audiences with shiny women, but it's just not for me. And now "Tumse Milke Dil Ka" is on, so I'm happy again.

TB tells me she thinks that if I look hard enough I can find an Akshaye song DVD, so that's officially this week's research project.

Well, this one isn't all Akshaye, but it's a start, I guess :)

And I'm with you on the shiny writhing women, blah.

I have only one song dvd as well! It's called "Shining Stars vol 2" and is devoted to Aishwarya, Rani, Priyanka, Kareena and Preity. It's awesome. I'm sure there's an Akshaye one somewhere, good luck!

Oh yes. Too much shine, too much writhing, too many women. Bleargh.

On another note, have you noticed how her dance steps (Celina's) look *so* much like a drunken flappy ostrich? Especially during the chorus.

I think it's one of the most ungaily choreographies I've in a long time!

What the world needs is more Farah Khans.
