"Magic Mike"

Its been ages and i have not jot down a word on my blog. And finally a movie , "Magic Mike", ah how blissful the Movie is ,isn't it? Or may be just for the ladies!!
And for those who still doesn't know Channing Tatum, Channing Matthew Tatum is an American actor, film producer, dancer, and former model, best known for his roles in Step Up, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Dear John, The Vow, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike. 
This is not the first time Tatum has stripped. 
In 1999, the model-turned-actor danced and stripped at a Chippendales-style revue called Male Encounter -- and Us Weekly uncovered the exclusive footage in 2009! To celebrate the release of his new movie, Magic Mike, re-watch the star perform under the alias "Chan Crawford."

“Magic Mike” isn’t what you think it is, if you’ve seen the previews. It’s not a hilarious romp about male strippers. It’s a Steven Soderbergh movie, meaning it’s not going to be hilarious. Funny and smart, yes, but not hilarious.

The basic outline of the movie is not so interesting but Yes, the guys are!!
Loosely based on his real-life experience as a male stripper, Channing Tatum stars as Mike, a roofer by day in Tampa, Fla., with a passion for making furniture, and the featured attraction by night in the all-male revue Xquisite.  While on a roofing job, Mike meets Alex Pettyfer’s Adam, a 19-year-old kid trying to find his place in the world. Guess who’s going to show it to him?  Just a few hours after running into Mike on the “strip,” Adam is onstage with Xquisite, stripping down to his underwear and giving his first lap dance.
Adam’s sister Brooke, played by Cody Horn, does not approve. She tries not to approve of Mike either, but his confidence, good looks and intelligence are just enough to keep her from completely ignoring him.  Overseeing it all is Matthew McConaughey as Dallas, the slick, fast-talking, money-hungry aging stripper-turned-club owner.
McConaughey has never been shy about taking off his shirt but showing his other, um, assets on screen isn’t something he’s accustomed to doing. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that he relishes those moments and embodies this particular character like we’ve never before seen him do.
As Mike, Tatum proves to be more than just a handsome face with chiseled abs. His performance shows he’s mastering the art of speaking without actually saying a word. In movies, sometimes silence is the most powerful form of communication.  In particular, the scenes between Tatum and Horn are the heart of “Magic Mike,” with Horn stoic and powerful, taking a character that might become cliche in lesser hands, and giving her a distinctive voice and arresting persona.
Soderbergh’s warm and somewhat colorful palate when shooting the dancing scenes is in sharp contrast to the muted, cold palate he uses for his exterior shots. It’s a fantastic choice, suggesting the Tampa daylight isn’t as friendly and comforting a place for these dancers as the confines of their club, where they’re the center of the universe.  The sunlight wasn’t even apparent until a particular scene toward  the end of the movie when it was perfectly appropriate and, I suspect, artfully placed by Soderbergh.
No doubt, “Magic Mike” is going to attract anyone excited by the promise of seeing the likes of Tatum, Pettyfer, McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Adam Rodriguez gyrate and flex their ridiculously sculpted bodies, but what will catch mainstream audiences off-guard is the movie’s depth — and also its length. Soderbergh, while brilliant, has a tendency to be a little long-winded, and I suspect the average moviegoer will find this movie too long. Anyone more interested in the language of cinema will appreciate Soderbergh’s ability to offset “Magic Mike’s” overt sexuality with his moody lighting and depth of field.  Along with Reid Carolin’s even-handed script, they help “Magic Mike” feel more like a work of art than what it otherwise might have been — another soulless, gratuitous, sexually charged Hollywood comedy.
The fact that these characters come to crazy life without much of a moral compass at hand might disappoint those who desire a message movie. But for those who want to surrender to a good time, let these well-drawn fellas and Soderbergh's attention to detail entertain you. Butt Scenes :D 
Four out of five stars.


“Sometimes a thong completely betrays you.” — Channing Tatum to The Hollywood Reporter

“You wanna get to that place where you’re sitting there, making a sandwich, talking to somebody about football or the shot or something, and you go, ‘Oh yeah, I’m in a thong.’ To see [Channing] talking to Soderbergh about a scene … standing there in a red thong, straight-facing it, is funny. Technical talk in a thong.” — Matthew McConaugheyE!
“It’s hard to take yourself seriously with an American flag thong on with a strategically placed a sparkler on the end of it.” — Joe ManganielloThe Hollywood Reporter
“I remember feeling it go boom, and just as the cool draft was going a little further than it had been, I went, ‘Oh, yep,’ and tucked into a roll.” — McConaughey on a woman snapping his G-string, The Los Angeles Times

DIY Ripped jeans

Helllo guys,

            I know I have been quite away from my blog lately. I was having my exams and also I had nothing much to write about, may be I had no inspiration :D.

           We all know how much ripped jeans/shorts fashion is in this summer. A DIY fashion, carried from actors to singers all has been wearing ripped jeans/ shorts. It is fashionable yet comfortable to wear and easy to carry out with any thing. Combo it to any dress.

justin , selena

             So today I have a tutorial on how to do rip your jeans. Its fun and very easy to do.

Things needed:

-         A pair of old jeans
-         A pair of scissors
-         Tweezers
-         Forceps or needle

How to do:

1.       Take any old pair of jeans which you want to rip. Haha
2.       Cut it to you length if you want to make it shorts or leave it just the way it is.

3.       Mark the places where you want to rip
4.       Then with the help of you scissors cut across the jeans, as much portion you want to and below also.

5.       Then slowly with forceps or needle pluck the thread which is in the part where you have cut. The thread its not along the way you cut but right perpendicular to it like I’ve shown in the picture.

You should be very careful while picking the threads

6.       Once you’ve plucked few threads, take the tweezers and take the other threads out since it is easier once you’ve plucked few.

7.       After all the threads are taken out you have your ripped jeans ready. It is easy, isn’t it?

Now , here are some pictures which I’ve for you.

how it looks

i even did it on my back pocket

This is me, the final ripped jeans

P.S:  actually I had already ripped my jeans and afterwards I thought of posting on my blog, so I had to do it in my upper pocket :D

Enjoy ripping J

Channing Tatum

     After a long time, I got to watch a new movie and guess the star? Oh yes, Channing Tatum. Who doesn’t love him? How can some one not love a gorgeous man? I really do. But in this movie his character was really unexpected for me, he was funny! Who knew channing tatum could be funny? All along the movie he cracked jokes and a had lot of comedy scenes. But I really loved the movie. It is a hilarious and intellegent movie indeed in which Johan Hill has played the role of Channings friend, who studied together in high school but he was called the slim shady and later they met being a cop. Channing Tatum is best known as the beefy heartthrob from The Vow, the bland action star of G.I. Joe, and the introspective dancer from the Step Up films. But it turns out that Tatum has a "lunatic twinkle" that brilliantly lends itself to comedy, Who wouldn't ? Just love the way Channing Tatum looks [visually]. His facial features are so beautiful. I love the shape of his eyes..he just looks exotic. It’s seriously visually appealing..thats a gorgeous man right there. And the way he acts is just too irresistible.

Food , nom nom

              Yesterday, as I was sitting in the room chilling with my siblings suddenly I kinda felt hungry..hehe…ah yes I really am a foody person who has to eat all the time and almost everything I want to. It was raining outside. It is summer buts it was windy (may be because of the climate change we’re facing!) and one could really feel the chill on their body. the weather itself asked me to cook Thukpa, a tibetian cuisine! A piping hot Thukpa laced with some super hot dried chilli flakes would be the perfect catalyst to tingle my senses as well as filling up my pot belly that gargles in hunger. Thukpa is a food which is basically found in countries like Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan. And then I started making thukpa as supper for us. We scold winter (you know what I mean). But since it was a rainy day we took it as hot thukpa on a cold day in the summer. Yes , quite confusing though.

So here’s how I made it.

· chicken/beef/buff stock
· 1/2 packet egg noodles
· eggs whisked
· spring onions with leaves chopped fine
· garlic minced
· vegetable/canola/sunflower cooking oil
· Coriander leaves chopped fine to garnish


· Cook the egg noodles according to packet instructions. Drain and run cold water over them to prevent them from sticking together. Keep aside.

· Heat the oil in a deep pan and fry the spring onions and leaves in it till soft.
· Add the garlic and fry for a minute
· Add the stock, salt to taste and boil for 10 minutes.

· Pour the eggs into the soup whisking all the while to break them up. Turn off the fire.
· Put some noodles in a soup bowl and spoon the broth over them.

· Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve them HOT!!

You can have them with Chinese sauce for more chilly and spiciness.
More delicious when served with family and friends. Have a good day!! Enjoy!

I got my nail's done!!

Hello everyone,
                How u all  doing? I hope everything is all good. Today I got my nails done. Hehe…you can see them on the pictures though. Actually I’ve got my semester exam coming up and I am on an exam leave right now. Since I do nothing (no studing) at home, I kinda pass my time doing these things like nail art. Its quite fun when u don’t  want to study J .
The nail art I did today was a pink cheetah print. Its not so clean but I tried a bit to do it. So here’s the procedure how I did it.

Things needed :
·        1.  Nail polish
·         2. Toothpick
·         3. Transparent nail polish

The procedure :

·         >> First choose your colour for the background of the print, as I chose pink and paint it as a background for your nail
·         >> Then when the back ground of the nail has dried, take a tooth pick , dip it in the nail polish u want the cheetah print (as I took black one) and just draw the prints on the  back ground
·         >> It is very easy to do right?
·         >> After the upper layer has dried paint some transparent nail polish so that your print lasts longer and it also gives a shiney look.
·         >>>Tadaaaa and DONE!!!!

P.S: I did a little bit of Zebra print on the middle finger, can try that also. Once u get along the moves its very easy. :)
It is very easy to do so everyone can try it.  Now I got to get going. Please try this alright. Good bye.
