Some things I would like to know - Part- II

6. When will this man leave?

He has been in charge of Manchester United for close to two decades. Under him United have become the biggest club in the world. But financial success has not translated to success in Europe and now they are struggling in England as well.

The players from the golden generation are in the twilight of their careers and replacements havent been found. Plus, the take over of the club by Malcolm Glazer has severely reduced United's transfer budget every season.

Its a time to usher in a new era at Old Trafford.

7. Will the superstar ever enter active politics?

His magnum opus Baba ended with him choosing the people of Tamil Nadu over the sages from the Himalayas! Every sign indicated his entry into politics. However, the movie bombed at the box office (more because of
a pathetic script) and the man was forced to shelve all plans.

After disastrously backing the AIADMK-BJP combine in last years assembly elections he has come back with a bank with Chandramukhi. But will his image translate into actual votes?

8 . Why is India so fascinated by this guy?

Take a good look at that photo. A good hard look. Bored? You are? I am sorry my friend but you are in a small club. A club that has just two members. You and me.Be cause you see the rest of the country is hooked. This is the ONLY expression the man is capable of.

Not to forget the pose with his arms stretched wide. (every bloody movie!). Last heard, he was asking himself the same question!

9. Where are hell are those weapons of mass destruction

The lies:

* Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction- Dick Cheney August 26, 2002

*We are asked to accept Saddam decided to destroy those weapons. I say that such a claim is palpably absurd -Tony Blair, Prime Minister 18 March, 2003

*Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent -George W. Bush January 28, 2003

* We know where they are. They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad- Donald Rumsfeld March 30, 2003

The explanation:

Before people crow about the absence of weapons of mass destruction, I suggest they wait a bit- Tony Blair 28 April, 2003

I never believed that we'd just tumble over weapons of mass destruction in that country- Donald Rumsfeld May 4, 2003

U.S. officials never expected that "we were going to open garages and find" weapons of mass destruction -Condoleeza Rice May 12, 2003

The truth :

* For bureaucratic reasons, we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction (as justification for invading Iraq) because it was the one reason everyone could agree on.

Paul Wolfowitz May 28, 2003

10.Men and Porn. How do we explain it to women?

agree with u on all counts except:-

SRK, undeserving of celebrity status. i think not! he is by far the most charismatic actor in Bollywood since AB. bit of an overactor but better than his peers nonetheless.rather have him on screen than one expression wonders like John Abraham and Vivek oberoi.

it is very annoying that he endorses every damn product flouting some conventions along the way(first omega now Tag). but atleast he is honest abt it. he said that he would even do condom commercials , if the money was right.

I agree with freebutcomesataprice. He is india's best actor. Maybe second after Aamir.

u can never explain porn to women.

u r right..even SRK doesn't know why he is such a hit...i am sure losing all this is his biggest fear in life!

when we know that almost all guys watch porn and infact so do a lot of women, there should be no questioning and explanations.

If u ever figure out how to answer your last question... let me know. It has to be the work of
a genius.
WTF ... some guy/gal actually contemplating SRK as India's best actor?!! Aamir is a good actor but not a patch on either Kamal or Mohanlal.

Thank you for knocking Shah Rukh Khan. He behaves like a pansy and laughs like a chicken. That, and any one who calls Karan Johar and Yash Chopra the best directors in India is a serious waste of sperm and an egg.

I do agree that when "controlled", he can be quite good. Eg. Swades, but the man is so bogged down by his own excesses that it isn't even funny.

If u have a prejudice against mainstream Hindi cinema, there is nothing much that can be said ,except a request to stifle your half baked opinions. your opinions are always dictated by the imdb top 100 list and not by personal taste -meaning you are a 'wannabe'. you would even rave abt the acting skills of omakuchi narasimhan if he ever made it to a tarantino or an Adoor Gopalakrishnan film. you are a fuckin phoney u bitch.

The box office is the only thing that matters because awards and critics dont really contribute much in monetary terms.the only thing that matters is MONEY! and SRK is the biggest money spinner in Bollywood.

suck all that!

dont bother replying because im never going to return to this blog!

Men and Porn. How do we explain it to women???

Its in the chromosomes dude. Women already have their extra X. We are just trying to catch up by laying our hands on anything X rated.

You DONT explain it to them. Men are men because of women, Porn is porn because of women. Either those (both) or I am gay.

lol.. are these points in order??

If I had written the list, I'd have probably had more or less the same things, but I'd have put the men n porn point as no. 1.

Blogger Manu said...

Oh.. and in that Shah Rukh point.. you missed the other cliched piece in every movie..
The one where he's all teary eyed and he's got his hands on the heroine's cheek and neck "gently" and saying the words "LOOK AT ME!!"

1:29 AM  
Blogger P said...
