|puipui||11:15 pm - Monthly Picspam: ALL OF THE ABOVE!|
Thank you for your patience, and I apologize for the delay, I had some family things that came up. But it is picspam time now!
So I started getting Sherlock Holmes pics together some time ago, because Sherlock Holmes spent the vast majority of both this month and last month in the lead, but I've also had a folder full of Bollywood pics for ages, just in case Bollywood someday finally made it to the number one spot, and of course I have folders full of random things that I could pull together for a Mod's Choice, if necessary, but since I don't really have a complete picspam for any of them, and given the closeness of the votes, and the last-minute-ness of the decision, your picspam this month is... All Of The Above! Yay!
There is not a lot of talking this month. Let us start with Sherlock Holmes!
But there is more to Sherlock Holmes than the newest Sherlock Holmes! In fact, technically, that's not even the newest Sherlock Holmes, as there have already been something like two other versions since then, but that's neither here nor there. Let's have some Jeremy Brett!
So many people have played Sherlock Holmes and his associates! Like Patrick Macnee, who has played both Holmes and Watson at various times!
And Tom Baker, who has played both Holmes and the Doctor dressed up as Holmes!
And a whole bunch of other people, too!
And now, Bollywood. Here is Aishwarya Rai!
And Hrithik Roshan!
And Madhuri Dixit!
And Priyanka Chopra!
And John Abraham!
And Deepika Padukone!
And Namitha Kapoor!
And classic Bollywood actress Zeenat Aman!
And all of these people!
And also these people too!
And now for something completely different. WHOEVER THE HELL I DAMN WELL PLEASE! Join me for a moment as I indulge my love for Diana Rigg
and my Steed/Peel shippiness, won't you? YAY!
And, of course, there is my love for Psych, as well, since it will likely never win the poll, alas.
Also, Misha Collins naked.
Plus pics where he's visible, too!
And Josh Holloway, because why not?
And Freema Agyeman, because also why not?
And a bunch of other people!
And, of course, that last reminds me...
And that is this month's (extremely eclectic) picspam! I hope you enjoyed it, and stay tuned for our next poll, which will be coming out as soon as I can think of things to put on it! Yay! <3

Also, what Bollywood films would people recommend to a noob to the genre such as myself?
|Date:||May 3rd, 2010 12:03 pm (UTC)|| |
What genres do you like? Romantic comedy? Action/cop stuff? Historical?
|Date:||May 3rd, 2010 11:37 pm (UTC)|| |
Oh, er, I'm not really a romcom person, but historical is always fun!
Well, my all time favourite is Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
, but if you're more into action stuff, Dum
are great. My siblings love Kal Ho Naa Ho
and Salaam Namaste
, and my dad's always been a big fan of anything with a Bachchan
in it. (Personally, Amitabh's my favourite, especially his older stuff, but both his wife and son are great as well.) And if you want a bit of screwball comedy, I loved Munna Bhai, MBBS
I'm not a huge Bollywood fan (in fact, I'm a non-fan from a family of fans), but those are the titles I was forced to watch with the family and liked enough that I remember them. I hope I've helped a little! :)

My god, it's full of squee.
We approve the fuck out of this picspam. But the first picture in the Tom Baker section is Graham Chapman, who (while awesome) was not a Doctor (though that would have been interesting).

The one with the big red "1982" on it? No, that's definitely Tom Baker, from a publicity photo for a 1982 TV production of The Hound of the Baskervilles
. It's from this article
in the Daily Mail, from around when the RDJ!Holmes movie came out. The article is obnoxious shit (it is, after all, the Daily Mail) but if you scroll down, it's got a little Sherlock Holmes pictorial with that picture in it.

Bollywood Yay!!! Thank you!
Mmm, Pegg / Frost / Wright / Hynes / Savage / Hyneman / Law-with-mustache!
All so lovely.
This was like winter holidays and my birthday and rainbows and sunshine all in one.
You are officially my favorite person EVER.
You know what I love about this comm is that any way the poll goes, we're all winners. *sighs* So much pretty.
So much pretty! You spoil us, puipui
I kinda hate Bollywood, but man, those are some hot people.
Them, plus Isabella Rossellini, Peter Cushing, Dule Hill and the recent Sherlock Holmes movie? This is the greatest picspam in the history of ever and I love it and everything else today because of it.
