thought for the day

My sister told me how one of her friends had watched "Aapka Suroor" to annoy another friend of hers who apparently can't stand the thought of Himesh Reshammiya in a 2 hour long movie. Maybe a lot of people just watched it to spite others, and that's how it became a hit.
If you think that's irrational, think of how in the first place, there could be a market for Himesh Reshammiya.

the mystery of john cusack's appeal

Yes, it's annoying that I can't place it entirely. It's NOT because he looks cute. It's a little because of his intelligence. A lot because despite being a guy he talks a lot.( Thank God for that little study that claims that men talk as much if not more than women.) A little bit because he likes midnight phone conversations. Any man who's willing to stay glued to his phone for more than 2 hours matching repartee for repartee can't be all that bad.
And he looks like the guy who'd be very interested in making something work. Most of his roles are about the guy in checked shirts who's quite cool in an 'alternative' sense who almost got the girl. He's the Jeaneane Garofalo of romance. And therefore more attainable. Yet worth pursuing when you've figured out that the sexy scowling professional salsa dancer is interested more in crack than human beings.
