59 Festival de Cannes - HP Studio/Majestic - Ritratto
Originally uploaded by amenove.
I think Cannes is an overhyped movie festival, and to make things worse that festival also celebrates just how badly Indian actresses can dress (only Mallika's dress last year which oozed sex appeal was a stunner, Aishwariya's 2004 dress still rankles the mind). It is a place where hype meets hype - Aishwariya for example, one of the Indian media's most obscene creations, because say what you will that woman is a pretty average actress (but, I gotta admit that she is a scorcher of a item dancer - no wonder Kajra Re became so big, on the big screen that sequence was HOT). By the way, have you seen the new Lux ad with the cartoonised Aishwariya (which seems to have a lot bigger boobs than the real one!). Anyway, click on the picture, it will take you to a great photostream on Flickr of some of the pictures behind the scenes at Cannes and some of the pretty women that you'll never see in the papers. I liked it a lot.
And Taylor Hicks won! America hasn't fallen as low as I thought it had. But, I wonder why the US manages to the singers right, but their Presidents wrong? Maybe telephone vote-in's are the key. Anyhoo, I have head for the home, well, not exactly, I'm headed for the twins place, and I'll grab something from KFC on the way. Damn, I missed that Fried Chicken.
I just realised, that deep inside I'm a consumerist pig. Consume, consume, consume. Heck, at least I'm honest about it.
