Sherlyn Chopra is Getting Naked Soon

Sherlyn Chopra at the Playboy Magazine Press Conference

Sadly, I didn’t know who Sherlyn Chopra was until I read in the August 13th issue of Newsweek that she will be “the first Indian woman to be photographed unclothed for Playboy magazine.” Being a man, I understand the term “unclothed in Playboy” to mean tastefully nude as compared to  vulgarly naked but what is one man’s tastefulness is another woman’s vulgarity.

Sherlyn Chopra was originally known as Mona Chopra and is, according to Wikipedia, a model, singer and actress and possibly also a Bollywood sensation. With the aid of Google I discovered that Sherlyn Chopra is an amazingly beautiful and sexy woman thus I see nothing wrong with her wanting to share nearly all her beauty with the world. I wish her all the best in her efforts to make it big in the very competitive world of the-cat-will-eat-all-dog world of female celebrities. Sherlyn might be criticized by the usual self-proclaimed moral ones but she is actually beating the path to worldwide popularity for many more Bollywood actresses to actually shine internationally rather than to imply they shine.

Playboy is in the business of male happiness and they have been making every effort to give men something different  to be happy about every month. I believe Playboy Magazine also carries articles written by famous authors to give observers the impression that men can read picture books.  Playboy Magazine was developed by a brilliant team of male scientists who figured out that men have a thing for nude women and a bigger thing for naked ones.

In the world of female celebrities exposure is everything and the more that is exposed the better. Sherlyn will appear and be exposed in the November 2012 issue of Playboy which will be a memorable one as it will be saved both on ruggedized memory sticks and under mattresses by the millions of real men of this world.

JLo – Behind the Sexy

JLo - closeup

JLo, aka Jennifer Lynn Lopez, according to Wikipedia and my memory, is an American singer, actress, dancer, television producer, television personality, fashion designer, a mother, a perfume, Mark Anthony’s soon-to-be ex wife and still a sex symbol. I use the word still because nobody remains a sex symbol all their life but because JLo is only 42 years old, she may have a few years of  mass-appeal sexiness in her yet as silicon technology and Madonna make enormous strides.

Like any multitalented sex symbols, JLo is loved by many men and hated by nearly as many women who think she is not only overrated but also one of the key females whose shapely image enters the mind of their male companion during sex and waking hours.


I am not sure why this is called a catsuit since I have never seen a cat in these suits.

Cat at the Window

Sandro del Prete's "Cat at the Window"

Can you see the Felius Catus aka the house cat, domestic cat, or just plain cat at the window? I am sure you can. If you didn’t then you are not alone and that is the style of the famous Swiss artist Sandor del Prete. Abraham Tamir is quoted in Wikipedia as saying Sandor del Prete ‘materializes the well-known psychological effect, of the difference between ‘looking’ (usually the first glace of an observer) and ‘seeing’ (when things are appreciated more thoroughly in the mind). The Cat at the Window is one of my favorite artworks or optical illusions of del Prete as it took me some considerable time to get past the bushy plant on the top shelf, the stockings hung out to dry like a used man, and even the well shaped glass of sippable wine on the window ledge. Once you overcome these physiological blocks you too will see the cat.

I am sure you are familiar with the work of  Sandor del Prete and you can see more at his website –

Queen’s Park Savannah Photos 2011

Around the Savanna

After years of procrastination, I finally went to The Savannah early one Sunday morning to take photos of the area as my Pentax K-7 begged to be used. I managed to get the typical tourist shots plus some that were not in my mind before. The aim was to take advantage of what some photographers call the Golden Hour – the period just after sunrise and just before sunset. Non-photographers call that period the Jogging Hour but the majority of Joggers with shorts came later than the sunshine. On that Sunday, the sun, like a teenager, struggled to wake up but the light was interesting enough for me. On Carnival Monday and Tuesday the Golden Hour will be earlier but should still make for interesting photographsClick here for my photos.

For those who are interested, I extracted some interesting information from Wikipedia and the NALIS website about the Queen’s Park Savannah which is included below.

Port of Spain‘s largest open space—and the world’s largest traffic roundabouts—is the Queen’s Park Savannah, known colloquially simply as “the Savannah”. It occupies about 260 acres (1.1 km2) [1] of level land, and the distance around the perimeter is about 2.2 mi (3.5 km)” Wikipedia

“In 1817 the parcel of land known as Paradise Estate was sold by the heirs of Madame Peschier to the governing body of the day, the Cabildo, for 6,000 Pounds Sterling as a recreation ground for the citizens of Port of Spain. Seven years later, the Cabildo transferred Paradise Estate for 10,363 Pounds Sterling to the Colonial Government and what is now known as the Queen’s Park Savannah was laid out” NALIS

“In 1882 the Queen’s Park ordinance was passed to regulate the use of the Savannah. Historical accounts mention that besides cricket and horse racing, athletics, football, hockey, polo and until 1936, golf were played in the Savannah.”NALIS

Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

Rihanna can be described, according to Wikipedia, as a BarbadianR&B recording artist and songwriter. She can also be described as talented, sexy, infinitely  better than Chris Brown, and able to sell more than 15 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide so far. This latest song with Eminem is strangely addictive despite, or is it because of, Eminem’s foul mouth. For this festive season of good will to all men and especially pretty women, Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna is stuck in my head like bun-bun at the bottom of a pelau pot. I can be heard humming this song all day even in the bank, while in the shower, or driving through floods of unknown height. The lyrics suggest that Eminem is still a bitter man either because he is bitter or bitterness sells. Based on the lyrics from Love The Way You Lie, Eminem’s world is still not a happy world. Eminem, for those who don’t know him, is a modern-day, depressed poet with lyrical talent that will only be too apparent scores of years from now. Here is a sample of why he will be considered great in the future:

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that’s alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that’s alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there’s a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can’t breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It’s like I’m in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It’s like I’m huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She f&*%%$#ing  hates me
And I love it
Where you going
I’m leaving you
No you ain’t
Come back
We’re running right back
Here we go again
It’s so insane…..

Amazon’s Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Page

Sexy Brazilian Two Piece Low Cut Waist Beach Bikini Swimsuit - Hot - available at Amazon - Tattoo and girl not included

Amazon, Stephen king, Wikipedia - One page

There is something I noticed on Amazon only yesterday and that thing is not the bikini shown above but the Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Page. It’s a Wikipedia page  that is available while browsing at Amazon. The Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia page comes up with the Amazon logo tastefully placed at the upper left-hand corner of the Wikipedia page of the subject being browsed. I cite two example screen-shots, Stephen King and V.S. Naipaul. I think this is a good idea as it will be useful to the buyer and it will also bring much needed funding to Wikipedia. Amazon funding to Wikipedia will reduce the amount of ads from Jimmy Wales, founder of that delightful Britannica-killer, Wikipedia, urging stingy users to donate to Wikipedia, a non-commercial, web-based encyclopedia and brain-replacement/enhancement.

V.S. Naipaul Amazon Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Page

This shopping-enabled Wikipedia page might have been around for ages (days) but I only noticed them a day or two ago. This might be experimental and may disappear if found not to be very successful but so far I am ecstatic about the merger of money and independent thought.  I was told by a Google developer last year that because of the number of hits Google receives per second some experimental features may only be available for a few minutes for complete testing.

Amazon Bikini - No Help from Wikipedia Needed

Thought I am happy about the added information on authors  Amazon is allowing customers to access without leaving their store, I am a bit concerned about the influence Amazon may have in determining Wikipedia’s content. I have not seen any Shopping-Enabled Wikipedia Pages yet for things such as bikinis and adult toys as Wikipedia may add little to making up a human mind on such purchases.  But Amazon may have had that influence on Wikipedia even before since the content of Wikipedia is determined by the users of Wikipedia and their volunteer-experts.

Krishna Bhatt – The Underclass Lover

Krishna Bhatt's The Underclass Lover

Krishna Bhatt, who I only know briefly through email – I assume it is Krishna Bhatt the author who emailed – asked me to say a few words about his book, The Underclass Lover, and I am happy to do so.

The Underclass Lover is a collection of short stories and I started the first story, The Underclass Lover, late last night. I have to admit it is a very well written story and an interesting one. All the stories are based on the complex social and political developments taking place in the contemporary Nepal. I had to check the meaning of the word underclass since I wasn’t sure my  intuitive understanding was the correct one.  It seems I was mainly correct and if you are in doubt Wikipedia has a good definition here.

The Underclass Lover is 180 pages long and published or self-published by WingSpan Press. The book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It is available in both paperback and Kindle from Amazon but it is strangely not available for Barnes and Noble’s eBook reader, Nook.


These stories unravel the complex social and political developments taking place in the contemporary Nepal, which is trying to come to terms with the violent Maoist war that continued for more than a decade, which a tenuous ceasefire arrangement has put on hold presently; and the carnage that eliminated the whole family of a ruling King. The characters often struggle to live with the dual psychology of the people and their own ambiguity – rendering most of the situations and contents of their life farcical. This book complements the previous successful debut book of Krishna Bhatt: City women and the Ghost Writer.

Here is a brief excerpt from The Under Class Lover:

Pasang also knew that one of his customers was actually
a mistress and not a tenant of the landlord of the house she
was living in, who also was an actress and acted in television
dramas, in very small roles. Since the landlord’s wife had
caught a very debilitating disease, she was not able to fulfill
the demands of her well-built husband, who exercised
everyday and looked half her age. So there was the young
actress in their lives, living in the ground floor of the house
without paying any rent. The actress did not become a wife of
the landlord, though she was living in that house for almost a
decade now. In fact, his wife has cleverly warned the landlord
not to marry the actress as it will invite a property dispute
among them and he too may end up losing some of it.
The actress, being a migrant into the city, at least had…

Corruption in Trinidad and Tobago – Setting New Standards

According to Wikipedia, the word corrupt is “Middle English, from Latin corruptus, past participle of corrumpere, to destroy.” It goes on to say that there are as many types of corruption as there are things worth thieving or tiefing as it is commonly called and done in Trinidad and Tobago.  It seems corruption, apart from destroying the country, boost the sales of expensive cars giving the gullible public the impression they were acquired through working smarter not harder.

Trinidad and Tobago is seen by the world as a very corrupt place and good for doing business.  Despite the public being unable to participate in the big corrupt activities planned by the Government, corruption continued in full swing in Trinidad and Tobago when a Top Government Official signed agreements on behalf of the people of the country with Foreign Companies sympathetic to the needs of the Government Official. The Foreign Companies were handpicked to provide expensive but useless things to the citizens. The Official had decided on the projects because the projects were both unnecessary, and subject to as many cost overruns as the tax payers could handle with the new property tax. The delivery of the projects could be delayed infinitely as nobody would need the finished product anyway. The skimming-off factor (the amount of money that unofficially comes from the treasury and goes into corrupt pockets) was decided based on a cost estimate from two people; a foreign sounding friend and a woman profiteer who could put strange things into the Official’s head despite its small size because it was empty as a plundered treasury.

In the latest known corruption episode of the country, the stools made proper contact with the ceiling fan causing the Foreign Friend to runaway and the profiteer to miraculously not be found. Apparently the police was looking for the foreigner in slow motion and the press was looking for the profiteer. Then, quite unexpectedly, the Foreign Friend returned, holding an accomplice’s hand, to attend to some family matters with the police but no warrant for Foreign Friend’s arrest  is expected to be issued until he flees the country again as the rumor also suggests he holds secrets that could flush many people down the toilet from hell.

Never ask what you can do for your country, but always ask what the Chinese, Malaysians and Canadians can do to it ~ aka_lol

Snakecharmer Binaural by Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra

There is no better way to listen to music – binaural or regular, Ottmar Liebert or other – than on a good headphone like a Bose Triport (around-ear) headphones though there is a risk of getting deaf after prolonged loud listening. Though the Bose Triport is a very efficient headphone, the deafness is due to the user, ignorant of how to get deaf while seeking joy through music,  pumping high decibel sound levels through the headphones to the user’s ears everyday for many days. However, there is hardly that deaf-risk if the listener is using a Dell Desktop’s headphone jack since Dell is skimpy on headphone output levels, possibly to save us from ourselves rather than a design blunder.

Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses a special microphone arrangement and is intended for replay using headphones. Dummy head recording is a specific method of capturing the audio, generally using a bust that includes pinnae (outer ears). Because each person’s pinnae are unique, and because the filtering they impose on sound directionality is learned by each person from early childhood, the use of pinnae during recording that are not the same as the ultimate listener may lead to perceptual confusion.” ~ Wikipedia

“Ottmar Liebert (born 1959)[1] is a German-born composer and guitarist, born to a Chinese-German father and a Hungarian mother. As a child, he spent most of his time traveling Europe and Asia with his family. Ottmar leads an ensemble called Luna Negra (“Black Moon”), which has gained popularity performing as a touring band and recording music albums in a “Nouveau Flamenco” style.” ~ Wikipedia

Trinidad and Tobago – Recession or No Recession


Finance Minister, Karen Nunez-Tesheira said on Wednesday we are not in a recession and CNC3 confirmed her theory with Wikipedia. The Central Bank Governor, Ewart Williams, also said we are not in a recession but in something which sounds worse, a deep slowdown. UWI economics lecturer, Dr. Greogry McGuire writing in the Trinidad and Tobago Review wanted to know if the Central Bank Governor was muzzled and now practicing Manning’s Ostrich Economics. Another UWI lecturer, Dr. Dhanyshar Mahabir, said we are probably not in a recession since we are a third world nation and recession definitions are for developed countries. However, Dr. Dhanysar Mahabir said we should not listen to those people who say now is the time to loosen your belt since there will be a time and place to do that in about nine months.  A nuts man from Curepe Junction said he doesn’t have the data to say if the country is in a recession but he knows more people are ketching dey ass this year compared to a year ago.

Store Bay Tobago - Tall Wave-2007Recession is just a word and it is like swine flu; you may have some symptoms and feel like yuh want tu dead but the test came back negative. I am not an economist but I have to agree with the Finance Minister and The Central Bank Governor since you still can’t find parking at Movietowne on Saturdays. But there are troubling signs that the economy is heading for a deep slowdown such as the increase in the theft of car mirrors from car parks manned by CCTV cameras installed for your peace of mind.  To the public, a recession is both real – you can’t afford a quart of hops on Saturday – and physiological – you want to plan that vacation to Disney World but look for signs of new milatary helicopters before you do so . When both the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance say loosen your belt you wonder if they were addressing the population or themselves. Despite the pants-dropping advice from our leaders, the Minister of Finance said the population doesn’t save enough but she failed to say how to do this and still be Trini-Happy.
