Taking Diehl's cue, we'll do this spatially, assigning different cultural influences to each of the cardinal directions. We'll start with south and west. To the south (taking Dharamsala, the seat of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, as center), we have:
Bollywood! And all the other -ollywoods!
|Shahrukh Khan, my freakin' hero. Ladies, there are much better pictures of his muscles online, but I'm keeping this strictly BYU-rated (really though, I just don't want to make all the guys jealous of Shahrukh's raging pectorals).|
There are -ollywoods from all over India, each of them having their distinctive style. I don't know much about these other cultural centers, but I will make a point of researching them so I will know their influence if and when I see it in Bylakuppe.
Now to the West:
Hollywood and MTV!
(Though I'm not sure how relevant MTV is anymore - does anybody out there know?)
|Katherine Heigl - Lori and I just saw this, and we think she rocks.|
|Jay-Z and Alicia Keys - two of my favorite and, I think, two of the most honest-to-goodness talented people in the biz today|
|Note the leather jacket and shades! James Dean, Elvis Presley anyone?!|
So, there you go. More to come in the next exciting episode.
