Happy Halloween!

When I first came to the US, Halloween knocked me off my seat. Why? Because not only did its absence in India - which tends to celebrate just about everything quite happily - amplify my surprise but because I also liked the hugely unusual concept of a special scary day filled with candy.

Unfortunately, these days, scary means torture porn like Saw IV and I can't even go to the theater. But I'm sure I'll have a good time. I hope you do too! Stop by if you get a chance and let us know how it goes for you.

Thanks Aspi. Just when I was having Himesh withdrawals.

If India did celebrate halloween Himesh would be the most popular costume this year. A topi, feminine jeans, a mike and some nasal crooning and you are there.

I forgot the man cleavage.

Now that I've seen Himesh, my week can continue! Joules, when I read your first comment about Himesh costume, the first thing I said was, you forgot his man boobs and cleavage, but looks like you're on top of things there!

Haha , thats one scary thought of seeing miniature Himeshes going "Trick or treat", "pyar mohabbat ke naam par ek candy de do" or "mujhe sare colony ke maao ka pyar chahiye" :D
I think I will play all the hr nasal tunes for making the house scarier! ;-)
An interesting thing is me and hubby landed on Halloween night in motown n years back!
and finally. following Joules' thought of Halloween in India , what would be the superhit costumes?
Apart from all the myth charcters you dress up as,
What would make you unique, lend you that pizzazz?
Will the loudmouth Himmy or Annu Malik costume fit?
Or maybe the T20 winners san the oldies be a hit!
Some would be scared with a HR Jr singing "Suroooooooooooooooor"!
But the scariest one for me would be that of Ekta Kapoor!

SkD, I'll remember never to get on your bad list.

Joules, Tania, what an awesomely marketable idea to create a Himesh costume. It could come with its own soundbox that would maro one of those quotes in-between some crooning.

And we can even sell accessories: a topi, a skull cap, beanie and a wig.

To tell you the truth, I don't watch horror movies period. Once I saw The Grudge on mute halfway through and couldn't sleep all night. Even Scary Movie scared the daylights out of me.

Anonymous said...

the grudge, the one with Buffy? or the japanese one?

the one with Buffy was so lame, i couldn't finish it

whenever i was horror movies at the theaters, whenever they show torture scenes, i end up cracking up "AHHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHHHHHAHAHAHA".. people probably think i'm sadistic or something

i went to watch Pans Labyrinth at a 50's style old art theater. The audience there were all in their 30's and 40's and looked like movie connoisseurs.

Anyhoo during the infamous "dagger" scene they were all squirming and there was a sound of laughter and that was me. They all looked at me like I was weird.

But not everyone squirms the same way. Gosh

correction - it was the bottle scene

*spoiler*

when the guy gets his face smashed by captain vidal

that scene

* end of spoiler*

The Grudge was the one with Buffy. And it was scary as shit as far as I am concerned.

I'm hoping torture chic will prove to be a fad and vanish soon. Right now the economics are compelling but thats what they said about call centers in India too :)

WHY? you don't have to watch them? Hollywood caters for everyone, you will have your chick flicks too.. and Ben Stiller movies hah

I WANNA SEE JASON STATHAM IN A TORTURE PORN. Thats Hot!

Meg, send us the picture of Beoynce from the concert...in the spirit of it being halloween!

I love scary movies as well, I have yet to see Saw III so I'm going to watch that before I go see Saw IV but I heard that it was really good.

I loved the Japanese versions of all the Ring movies. I once dressed up as Sadako and freaked my teacher out. It was fun.

Ringu was by far the scariest movie I have seen in the last few years.

What the h**l is Beyonce wearing in that first picture. OMG scary. She usually has a good dress sense.

Aish's hair is not doing it for me. She got the Poonam Dhillon cut from the 70's (which was cute then)

oh she got bangs not so long ago when she went to boston to shoot for pink panther sequel.. she looks cute, next time i get a haircut i am gonna ask for a similar one myself LOL

i even got Tom Ford Whitney sunnies just cuz she has one. I now need the Fendi oversize bag that she has, and those cute silver Louboutin peep toes.

I need a sugar daddy, my bf is a poor student. I am gonna pull a Kareena once i meet a hot rich single guy.

Talking about Himesh, I just read that during the SRGMP shooting, the mentors were all practising the song 'jeena yahan, marna yahan' and when it came to the part 'kal khel mein,hum ho naa ho, gardish mein taare rahenge sadaa'....himesh stopped the shoot, and said "Its a manhoos song.Sorry, but I cannot sing it!I am going to be here for a long time. Why should I sing such lines!!!!What a huge ego!
