Appreciating other cultures….

December 1, 2009

Blog Guy, you seem to think you’re an entertainment blogger, but all you cover is American stuff. Other countries DO have movies and television as well.

I happen to know the German Bambi media awards were held recently. How about paying some attention to those?

You make a very good point. Here are some photos of people on the red carpet at those awards.

Um, I don’t want to seem ungrateful, but these are just two shots of the same couple.

Say, you’re right. Funny, I just chose them at random. I think the guy is an actor.

Yeah, then what’s he been in?

Oh, who knows these days? I can’t keep up.

Sigh. Well did he win a Bambi award?

I’m not sure, but It’s an honor just to be nominated….

Hey Dave, if you look very close at the 2nd pic you can see a clear band holding the front of her dress together. There is probably also some double-stick tape involved as well.So now if you ever end up wearing a dress like that you will know how to avoid any wardrobe malfunction

Thanks, Tina. My guess was going to be an industrial strength staple gun with clear staples, but your way probably works, too….
