This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Internet Eye Wash Station #2
Two days in a row complaining about our current regime is at least one too many for me, so I give my gentle readers and myself a little break from that stuff with pictures of pretty girls. To be precise, two pictures of the same pretty girl, Ms. Indira Varma.
Matty Boy, some might ask. What is your obsession with Ms. Varma? She isn't gigantic. She's just another actress.
Don't get on my nerves, hypothetical question asker! The only legal uses of the word "just" in a sentence about Ms. Varma are:
1) Ms. Varma is just about as pretty as pretty girls get.
2) If Ms. Varma were to chance upon this humble blog one day, and a smile played on her lovely lips, it would be right and just.
I don't know where the first picture is from. I think it's a general publicity still, or it may be from her time as a model before she got into acting.
This second picture is from her very first film, Mira Nair's 1996 film Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love. Is this a good film, you might ask?
Indira Varma gets naked with Naveen Andrews. You get to decide if that's a good thing or not.
Isn't she pretty in this picture? Doesn't she smell nice?
[psst! Matty Boy! You can't smell people on the Internet, which is probably a good thing in general.]
Use your imagination, hypothetical! How else is she going to smell?
And it's Friday, so let's get to the Random 10.
They Called It Rock Nick Lowe Clubland Elvis Costello & The Attractions Sunny Afternoon The Kinks Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll Ian Dury English Roundabout XTC Alice Tom Waits Don’t Forget to Smile Mose Allison Particle Man They Might Be Giants She Said She Said The Beatles Raspberry Beret Prince
The Brits dominate this week, but we also have visits from Tom Waits at his most wistful, Mose Allison at his most sardonic, They Might Be Giants gettin' all scientific and stuff, and Prince singing about meeting a pretty girl and having sex with her. What are the odds?
