Thursday Foreignotica XI

Welcome back to your regularly scheduled Thursday dose of things foreign!

Not sure if I posted this before, but this is a video and song I like. Soon, I’ll go into the Vaishnava legends of Krishna and the “gopis”. But for now enjoy this contemporization of an element of bhakta Vaishnava Hinduism.

Presenting “Radha Kaise Na Jale” (“How Can Radha Not Burn [With Jealousy]”) from the movie “Lagaan”.

  1. So I’m sitting here, wondering, who are the 577 poor fuckers from Great Britain who have stumbled upon this so called blog.

  2. Haha! Even though you pushed my poat down, I can still laugh at the fact that RACIST xbrad called you Tushar.

    Why you gotta hate on teh Brown Man, b-rad?

  3. Oh.

    Shit.

  4. You Racist. I suppose all brown people look the same to you, Cracka

  5. Brewfan, send me an email. I need to pass along your info to Sis re: the Brewer’s game.

  6. You Racist. I suppose all brown people look the same to you, Cracka

    Heh. Ironic racial slurs are teh funneh!

  7. You know, I’m not a big fan ot the French, but that Jacques Pepin guy can cook like a mother fucker with just a few simple ingredients.

    Seriously, he makes some really good-looking stuff with just a few simple things. He’s like MacGyver if MacGyver was a French chef who put together simple but elegant meals instead of devices that would free him from bad guys. And he manages to do it without being all snooty. Not that MacGyver was snooty. I meant the French.

    I’m just saying is all.

  8. Sleep now. See you racists later.

  9. “Hello, my name is SeaNm, and Words are my Life”.

  10. Morning! wakey wakey.

  11. Hola, Pie in.

  12. Rain!

  13. blue skies. Of course, it’s only 58 degrees …

  14. But, it’s supposed to get ALL THE WAY up to 80 today, which is only a couple degrees below normal.

    I don’t know what I’m going to do. I may have to turn on the AC briefly.

  15. Rain!

    Great news, Dave!

    Now you can stop sacrificing Lutherns to appease the water god.

  16. Workout update: per a suggestion, I used a Daft Punk song during my workout. “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” get’s two thumbs up.

  17. Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” get’s two thumbs up.

    I thought that was an ad for one of the “Boss”s favorite products, ExtenZe…….

  18. Great news, Dave!

  19. Car/in I was thinking about your statement yesterday concerning weight. Do you go by the scale completely? I was a strength coach for a gils HS volleyball team and weight was always a topic of discussion. I slowly, very slowly adjusted their thinking to look in the mirror rather than go by a number. Muscle building was adding weight and a few started to eat less and less. The visisble results were almost immediate. They were in great shape obvuiously, they were kids exercising for 3 hours a day, but once the scale was put away, the girls looked healthy and perfomed better. Just 2 cents. I can tell you know what you’re doing from what you say.

  20. I don’t really go by scale. I do, but I don’t. I’ve ALWAYS weighed more than women my size because I’ve pretty much always been athletic.

    I’m pretty much completely happy with how I look except for my waist. It’s the last place where I keep weight on. It’s hard to tell how much is “excess” and how much simply is a result of five kids and the nephrectomy’s damaging my muscle tone. So, the scale tells me if I’m losing any of that.

    It does make it confusing, though to compare with my “historical” averages, because I’ve been doing a lot more upper body stuff … core work, back, etc. At 135, I’ve been told I look too skinny and to STOP losing weight@@ For many women, that’s their “overweight” weight.

  21. I’m not 135 now. Add ten pounds. Sigh.

    But, I may be happy with current bod if I can get down to 140. Who knows?

  22. Oh, good news. Just got word my bil is on his way home from Afghanistan.

  23. Headline story on MSN.com (linking to a Newsweek story):

    “The Upside of the Great Depression.”

    Who needs a White House Press Office when these tools seem to want to do it for them for free?

  24. http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/lifestyle/stories.nsf/healthfitness/story/3A2084ED5343FBA386257602006DE624?OpenDocument Eating wieners is OK? Jewstin agrees.

  25. COngrats, Car-in!

  26. The Upside of the Great Depression

    Severe Drought? Great! No more pesky weeds and playing in the sand can be a blast!

  28. I just heard on the local news that PETA wants to pay to repair a local bridge that has been abandoned. There is a catch though, they want to rename it the sea kitten trail and ban fishing from it!

  29. I swear, the spinning by the MSM for Obama is actually quite funny. The “funemployment” one has to be the best

  30. AIDS: Have You Lost Weight? You Look GREAT!!

  31. How SIDS Helped One Family Successfully Lower Their Food Budget in These Difficult Times

  32. Good morning, Sickos!

  33. Jazz! Git that fist out of your ass, I see!

    The mioracles of modern science!

  34. Of course, it’s only 58 degrees …

    where the hell do you live that it is 58 degrees? We see those temps in January NOT July jeez!

    So, yesterday I filed my FIRST emergency unemployment extension. The requirement to being allowed this money is that you CAN’T have worked even one day for someone.
    So, where I thought I could sub part time and still draw unemployment is out the window. I am better off exhausting all of my unemployment benefits which will be next year and NOT working, than I am to try and pick up a sub job everyday while I am going to school.

    Does this seem backwards to anyone?

  35. Jazz! Git that fist out of your ass, I see!

    Smell my finger, EVB!

  36. Does this seem backwards to anyone?

    Well, in the real world, sure. In GB (Governdementia Bureaucracia), nothing should be surprising. Just wait until the money you earn by being on unemployment exceeds the earnings threshold for being on unemployment and thereby disqualifies you for unemployment benefits. Won’t that bake your noodle….

  37. Be Happy!

  38. How SIDS Helped One Family Successfully Lower Their Food Budget in These Difficult Times

    Ohhh hahahahaha! That is flat out awfuly, but funny as hell. I’m still laughing.

  39. Sohos, when i finished the movie I was in, the accounting office sent a mailer to everyone hat said to make sure to sign up for unemployment as soon as possible. it’s areg thing after shooting, until the next gig. Work, unemployment, work unemployment. Even for the big money makers it’s the same.It’s kinda fucked up.

  40. Y’all are som seeeeeerious RAAAAAAACISTS!

    Its a Gift, Bob. The Cheif RAAAAAAACIST is still suffering from the flashbacks from combining Viagara, Midol, and MD20-20 the sniffles.

  41. I read that during my morning constitutional, Bob. Interesting. I’m a little more sanguinary, and I’d prefer to see a more bloodlust for the President and his policies, but those polls are a good start.

  42. Race card for the HNIC? Really? That’s new

  43. Sohos this hardly applies to you, but I know “people” that are unemployed that work for cash doing day jobs that do pretty well. Meaning are breaking even for when they used to work well, not getting rich well.

  44. Compos, have you seen this? Erna playing against Shannon Larkin. Sully plays like 6 intruments. But was a drummer before going to the mike. I’ve linked it before, so don’t hate, FUCKERS!!

  45. Yeah Vmax there is only one thing I know I could do for cash under the table and Count would probably get upset 😉

  46. My love’s been on the market for years. I had a few takers, but they quickly got cases of buyer’s remorse.

  47. ^pool cleaning?

  48. damn! I meant that for Sosho

  49. day lay-borer

  50. Compos, have you seen this?

    I’ve actually seen that live. I was amazed at Erna’s overall musical abilities. His roll across his kit is slower than Shannon’s, but that’s to be expected.

    Thanks for the link.

  51. Yeah Vmax there is only one thing I know I could do for cash under the table and Count would probably get upset

    You mean there is a black market for Free Lance Nagging in Texas? Wow. Just Wow.
