Office bigot refuses to admit that Indian food smells good

Office bigot refuses to admit that Indian food smells good

BATON ROUGE, LA – Employees at a local company are convinced that their office bigot likes the smell of Indian food but refuses to acknowledge the fact. Efforts to be kind to him and offer him some to try have failed. “Our office manager, Amos Bundy, is an interesting guy,” said Devendra Nagheenanajar, lead developer at local software firm Imminent Technologies. “He’s been with the company for nearly 20 years. He started in the mailroom and worked his way up to office manager. He’s seen the company grow and change. When I started, I was the first Indian – and first non-white – developer. Now the … Continue reading

Clyde Waddell’s amazing photos: A Yank’s Memories of Calcutta

I’ve devoted a lot of time in the strip so far to research, trying to figure out how people dressed back in the 1940s, taking a look at streets & vehicles, etc. Whilst Googling, I came across these fantastic pictures by Clyde Waddell, an American military photographer who was in Calcutta around 1945-1946. He took pictures, at the behest of his friends, and added some fantastic commentary. Click on a photo to open up a nice carousel viewer. This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work prepared by an officer or employee … Continue reading

Outsourced

Review: I watched the Outsourced tv series – and loved it

We got a trial of Hulu a month ago and while seeing what they offered, I noticed Outsourced. It rang a bell; I have a faint memory of seeing the 2006 movie that inspired it but had no idea there was a tv show (we haven’t had cable for at least 10 years). It was a pleasant surprise – an American tv show set in India, with a mostly Indian cast? Hot damn – that’s some progress right there. Or at least I hoped it was progress because there was an excellent chance that the show would suck. Except the show … Continue reading

Welcome!

I realized I needed an artist site because my webcomic Fried Cheese Balls is so topical that posting about anything not related to India or Indian culture just seems off-topic. That site needs to have a tight focus – and I needed a place where I could get on my soapbox & shout to my heart’s content. Plus I don’t want to perturb older Indian folk who might be genuinely offended by shits & fucks (see what I did there Rocco?). I can imagine them now, all saying I have a foul mouth, all the while shaking their fist or making gestures … Continue reading

Meet the Patels?!

How did I not know about this – an actual movie about Indian-Americans in the theatre?! This is total date night material. In other news, yes – I’ve been awol. Work has kept me busy and now I realize why comic creators have buffers – a completed number of comics that keep things from stopping in case the creator is way too to create one week. I’ve got about 5 strips mapped out that need to get drawn and that should get me back on track. I also have some movies I’d like to discuss (like Bend It Like Beckham, which holds … Continue reading
