I felt like there was a story with the "effeminate" contestant from "American Idol" that needed exploring on a deeper basis than this crap talent show could provide. In all honesty, MTV's "True Life" is actually the one quality program left on that channel that deals with issues on a personal level. Their specials on breast implants, OCD, and meth use were pretty damn good.

I believe the reason for the Chinese cinema versus Bollywood comes primarily in that China and India are now economic rivals in the world. For Shanghai in China theres Bangalore in India. Therefore, they feel that with the successes of Chinese films...Bollywood should try and emulate that.

I love Bollywood, and when they do make a good film...it's really good. But currently there are about 97% bad films.

Love the blog.

Interestingly, the NY Times had an editorial about the absolute nastiness (I believe they called it "mean-spirited") of American Idol yesterday: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/22/opinion/22sun3.html?n=Top%2fOpinion%2fEditorials%20and%20Op%2dEd%2fEditorials
