Doc To Watch Now: “Bombay Movie” Spotlights An Indie Filmmaker Struggling To Make It In The Shadow Of Bollywood

Doc To Watch Now: "Bombay Movie" Spotlights An Indie Filmmaker Struggling To Make It In The Shadow Of Bollywood
Watch The Trailer!

We’re big documentary nerds here at The Frisky and one doc I’m dying to see is “Bombay Movie,” directed by my friend and former coworker Alex Eaton. The film follows independent filmmaker Raja Menon as he sets out to make a movie that India’s song-and-dance-friendly Bollywood would never support — “ a true story about India’s working class, about the men and women who quietly serve Bombay’s wealthy and are treated as second class citizens.” Without industry support or financial backing, Menon is determined to turns his vision into reality, corralling two foreign producers and a talented group of actors to bring his script to life — but the question asked throughout the film is, “Will anyone want to see it?” More specifically, will Menon be able to convince people — who have endured these hardships in real life — to watch them depicted on screen? You’ll have to watch to find out — and lucky for you, “Bombay Movie” is available on iTunes today! And if you’re in New York City and have no plans tonight (or ones you can cancel), you can attend a screening of the documentary at IFC Center at 6:15. Get tickets here! [Bombay MovieiTunesFacebook]

Model Irina Shayk Sunbathes With Some Pigs

Usually, the only pigs a supermodel has to deal with are the kinds who lurk around the bottle service tables at nightclubs. On a recent trip to the Bahamas, Irina Shayk cavorted with a whole new category of pigs: the adorable kind.

Shayk posted a pic on her Instagram of Pig Beach, located on the island of Exuma, where wild pigs run (snort?) free and frolic in the clear blue waves with sexy Russian bikini models.

Check out another cute pic of the porkers after the jump! Keep reading »

Johnny Weir Will Only Get Back With His Hubby If There Will Be No Mutual Masturbation Outside The Marriage

Good news, sort of: figure skater Johnny Weir and his estranged hubby, Victor Voronov, have changed their minds about getting a divorce — but not without signing a bizarre post-nup. When the pair decided to get back together this weekend, Voronov asked that Weir sign a document that apologized for bad-mouthing Voronov to the press and promised to keep Weir’s mom outta their marriage. (Good luck with the  mother-in-law problem, hon.)

In response, Weir wrote up a five-page document that includes the types of behavior that he considers cheating, like sex outside the marriage, kissing others, sexting, Grindr and — wait for it — mutual masturbation. Keep reading »

New App Figures Out Who Your Happiest Facebook Friends Are

New App Figures Out Who Your Happiest Facebook Friends Are

TIME magazine has created a new app which hooks into your Facebook account and measures the happiness of your friends based on the language they use in their posts. I’ve learned two important things about myself. One, with 502 posts, I use Facebook entirely too much. And two, The Frisky’s Mommie Dearest columnist Avital Norman Nathman is my happiest friend — 80 percent of what she posts is positive! (Winona is next, with 69 percent of her posts being positive, and Amelia is only marginally more positive than me, with 58 percent of her posts. Buck up, Amelia!) It’s an interesting experiment, although I don’t believe what words a person uses on Facebook can accurately assess their fundamental happiness. But maybe it is time to stop grumbling about the bad weather so much. [TIME]

9 Celebs Who Really Shouldn’t Have Been At Coachella

It might be a wrap on the first weekend of Coachella, but we’re still getting over some of the random celebrities that decided to descend on Indio, California, for the Music and Arts Festival. To this group of celebs that seemed to stand out like a hand full of sore thumbs, we have three words for you: Just Say No-chella.

Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” Is My New Summer Jam

Lana Del Rey's "West Coast" Is My New Summer Jam
West Coast Represent!

Okay, okay, I get it, California, you want me to move back. I’m in! I’m game! And even if I wasn’t, the “Mad Men” premiere would have convinced me. It did not escape my notice that everyone at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Etc. Etc. Etc. is miserable except Pete Campbell, who has found a new zest for life after moving to Los Angeles. Seriously, I never thought I would say this, but California Pete is my spirit animal. “The city’s flat and ugly, and the air is brown, but I love the vibrations,” basically sums up the feelings coursing through me as I write this post from a hotel bed in Glendale. I’m also listening to Lana Del Rey’s new single, “West Coast,” which, if it wasn’t 45 years too late, would totally be Pete’s summer jam. Instead, it’s mine. Listen above!

Dear Cunnilingus,

This is a difficult letter to write. But it has to be said. I’ve been struggling with my feelings about you for a long time now.

Pharrell’s Happy Tears On Oprah Will Give You All The Warm Fuzzies

it's time to cry
"Why am I crying on Oprah?"

If you’ve been anywhere with a radio these past few months, you know Pharrell’s song “Happy” has started something of a movement. He sat down with Oprah Winfrey and watched a clip of how his song has touched people all over the world. He can’t help but cry some happy tears! Oprah tends to have that effect. “It’s overwhelming because I love what I do and I appreciate the fact that people have believed in me so long to the point [where I can] feel that,” he cries. Try not to tear up yourself when you watch! [The Grio]

Dating Don’ts: Love In The Age Of Instagram

Dating Don'ts: Love In The Age Of Instagram

I have an inveterate aversion to the unexpected. I hate surprise parties. I conduct extensive consumer research before I purchase anything, from new shoes to vacuum cleaners. The idea of plunging blind into a situation fills me with a mounting dread, a gnawing in the pit of my stomach knowing that I have no say in the outcome. This charming quirk has led me on a lifelong journey to impart control over a variety of situations that are inherently uncontrollable — the job search, the actions of others, and most importantly, dating. Any way you slice it, dating is fucking terrifying for me, because the unexpected is the norm. The carefully edited OKCupid or How About We profile and the brief dossier provided by a well-meaning friend only reveals so much. How can you know more before you’ve even met? This week, in an article in The New York Post, I read about Glimpse, a new dating app that offers the alluring prospect of stripping some of the mystery away. By allowing users to view the Instagram profiles of potential matches, Glimpse removes a layer from the murky soup of contemporary dating, offering users a deeper glimpse into the interests of other singles. If you like what you see, “smile” at the person through the app, and if it’s a match, you’re well on your way to love. Keep reading »

Did You Glimpse The Blood Moon?

Did you get a chance to step outside last night/early this morning to look at the blood moon? This was the first full lunar eclipse in three years, and the first in a series of four that will conclude in September 2015.  the Earth will begin to position itself between the sun and the moon for the first of a series of four total eclipses to conclude in September 2015. As for the red hue? As CNN explains it, “In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a coppery red as it passes into Earth’s shadow. During the process, the moon’s bright glow dims, taking on a red hue because of shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth’s atmosphere.” Gorgeous.
