french fries + beer + Talvin Singh

Desi's Gone Wild took another turn in the city as Talvin Singh dj'd in Central Park today for the first time in a long time. While the music was great I think I may take an equal amount of enjoyment seeing all the random desis that come out of the woodwork. Amdst the masses of goofy Indians there are wannabe thugs who wear muscle shirts and travel in packs.

Even more bizarro is the timeless question man has been asking from the dawn of time: Why do all hot girls always have lame looking boyfriends? Sheesh. I'm not one to judge or anything, but if I were to judge I'd say that those guys better have a lot of personality. Also as a standard rule, every gathering of desi must include a pack of girls who look utterly disinterested in everything going on around them. It's not easy to look so actively disengaged, but time after time desi girls pull it off. We salute you.

Finally in every crowd there's always the one overly enthu guy. You can usually spot them at Indian gatherings because it's usually the guy who's not Indian. The best part is when they bop their heads and dance when there's no music playing at all. I think Snap said it best, when they astutely said rhythm is a dancer. In today's show, our hero of the day was the guy on the left. Special props to his "Dubstar" belt buckle. Wristbands sold separately.

i'm pretty sure they knew u were staring at them....

if, ' staring ' is too harsh a word; u took a picture of 5 random desi girls that u've never met before and don't know; in NY. Now, am sure that counts for something.

haha..for the record ab i was only taking a picture of random indian girls for purely record keeping purposes only. any extra joy thar i may have received from it is simply a positive externality. on a sidenote i'm pretty sure one of the girls saw me because i took like 3 pictures because the first 2 didn't come out right.some random tatti guys kept on walking through...
