Breaking Bad in Bangkok

I am back in Bangkok and going through my usual painful process of getting over jetlag. It seems the older and creakier I am the harder it gets and the longer it takes. These 24-hour flights feel like they suck a year out of my life. It is nice being back just in time for the most recent protests. I would hate to miss them. I was here for the coup, for the closing of the airport by the Yellow Shirts, the riots of the Red Shirts and now this latest brouhaha. It is street theater of a kind. I hope to get back into the swing of things soon. But talking about swing, here is one of my favorite cheesy Bollywood dance numbers from the 1960's. It is from Jaanwar, a 1965 romantic romp that I reviewed on my site ages ago. But I noticed that they have the clip of the song up on Youtube and I thought I would throw it up here as an easy way to create a Blog posting!

Thanking the Gods

So the Boston Red Sox won the World Series in 6 games. It almost felt too easy. These guys had to grind out every win this year and suddenly they win an easy one for the whole thing. Clearly, my offering to the Gods of pictures of the Twins must have had something to do with that. I believe in giving the Gods what they want. So some more Twins.
