Chinatown

No, not THAT Chinatown...this Chinatown. Stumbled on this cruising YouTube. It is a full-length film...so, knowing that most of you have a real life, I suggest that you just watch the first couple of minutes to get the feel for it...or, watch the entire funky thing. I'm not sure (I too have a life, and have not watched the whole film), but there may be singing...as in Bollywood. Just warning you.

God I love India...except for the call centers...and the snakes....oh, and the cows one can't eat.

An Indian parody of the Chinese via U.S. hillbilly-esq music? Are you sure you have a life? Is the snow gone? Can you go outside? Cabin fever? Just curious.

Ah well, it's good to know that being culturally insulting isn't just the realm of the United States! It wasn't quite at the levels of Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's, so I think we're probably still number one. Wooo! Hoooo!

That was actually quite fun. Kind of like a fever dream after too much korma only with music and lots of what appear to be Indian men acting like Elvis during his film career.

Put reality in the Cuisinart and hit "pulse". Whee.

YD G---You're entitled. Glad to see that you are better, btw. Tear down the fence?

Mr. C---I did not watch it, as anyone could have discerned from the post. Are you kidding...snow...gone? Get a grip man, this is Nebraska...and it's February. It's amazing how life goes on, even with snow.

L o s---You watched it all? It had to be for laughs...at the expense of another culture, for sure. It was so ridiculous that it's funny. Way to much shrieking going on for me. I posted it because it was unbelievable, on all the levels you mention...and more.

Mr. Charleston said...

Anyone who "knows" JJ knows he watched the whole thing.

jadedj said...

Mr. C---Maybe under certain circumstances, but not this time...I had a sick 7 year old last night that needed my attention. Maybe later. Meanwhile, feel free to do so yourself.

Darn...now I'm going to have to wish for a snow day so I have time to watch. (Sometimes bad movies are the best movies!)

jadedj said...

intell---I'm thinking this one would require two snow days...one to watch...the second to recover.

Chimp said...

Thanks, JJ. Educational film.

I finally learned why people in India walk on burning coals. They are very poor and can't afford shoes so they burn the bottom of their feet to make it hard so that they can walk better. They paint the top of their feet to look like shoes.

I also learned why women in India have a red dot on their forehead.

It seems that in ancient times, Indian men used to practice archery skills by target practicing by aiming at their wife's red dot. In fact, that is one of the reasons why they had many wives.

Chimp---There are some places in Appalachia America where the same things are practiced...sans red dot.

Chimp said...

I always wondered what that swooshing noise was when I hiked the Appalachian trail.

Doug said...

Lots of cute Indian women, but where are the Chinese folk?

Tom Harper said...

And don't forget, Bollywood cranks out more films than Hollywood. Hard to believe there's such a huge audience for that schlock.

jadedj said...

Doug---Ah ha...this is the question isn't it? I suspect...in China. Not in Bollywood for sure.

Tom---1,173,108,000 customers...give or take a million or so.

Punch said...

I think India has a population approching 2 billion. That's a lot of schlock stock.

Mr. Charleston said...

I've told you before why Indian women have a dot on their heads. On their wedding night the husband gets to rub off the dot and see if he's won a 7-11 or a motel in the U.S., or if he has to stay in India and work in a call center.

jadedj said...

Punch---And schlongs.

Mr. C---That's right...takin' away them good jobs from real amuricuns!

Punch said...

So? Ahhh? What is an unreal amuricun?

jadedj said...

Punch---You know, one of them lubral facist commie pinko wheat bread types. Like that there.

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

no I meant it wouldn't play for me..

jadedj said...

YD G---Believe me, your life is probably better off for it. The screech factor along shaves years off your life.
