I hope that everyone has an exciting weekend planned, or at least will be going for a nice walk. On Sunday the 6th of September, we will be having a Pickled Politics meetup in central London. If you would like to attend, please e-mail Sunny on sunny [at] pickledpolitics.com. All are welcome.

A few weeks ago I highlighted the show Kuchh Kook Hota Hai. I praised it for combining cookery, singing and dancing, a fusion sorely lacking on British TV. I must now apologise, after failing to highlight what I have realised is the most brilliant part of the show- the aftermath of the song. At this point the dancing girls have nothing to do but nod and smile, and when the chef points at the ingredients, the girls’ fingers emerge instead.

    Why aren’t the women doing the cooking in this video?

    Hee hee. I’m just messing!

    You’re not going to meet on Blackheath? They’ve gone to a lot of trouble to build facilities and if you get bored there are some really nice pubs nearby.

    Dave – too far man!

    Rumbold – OMG I’ve just watched that video. Fuck me. My eyes and my ears hurt.

    Good freaking Lord. I think I’d seen that video before (or a clip from the same show?!) but seriously… what the hell?! Why does he swat the girls to either side of him?

    I should be attending the meet-up in my usual haze of cringing shyness.

    Yo Sunny! Remember me?

    Cool video from Pakistani Sikhs:


    Pakistani anthem as you have never heard it before:

    raz – where the hell ave you been hiding?

    Some people just don’t appreciate brilliance. Apparently The Wire was largely based on this. What more do you want from a show?

    Oh, and the song is from this:



    I trust you.

    An obscure piece of trivia for y’all. There is a small press magazine called ‘Lobster’ whose last ever paper edition, has, as its’ last sentence of content a reference to oor Sunny. The magazine itself is about conspiracies and has much to say about the relationship of the Jewish / Israelli lobby to the US, and Britains relationship to them both. I’d imagine bananabrain would go completely apoplectic, so it’s not recommended as such. The Sunny quote is not about any of that though, it is about Dean Godsons’ ‘apology’.

    Some great google ads showing right now. Like a Zakat (tithe) fund run by the Pakistani government asking for repatriated donations!
