cocktails at 35,000 feet

Soaring through the sky somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, perhaps an hour after leaving Hong Kong on a flight to Los Angeles, a loaded, legit cocktail cart comes rolling out for service. This is about as far from the standard in-flight routine (where you’re grateful to keep the whole can of soda to refill your plastic cup with bottom-shelf whisky and Coke) as you can get. This is luxe in-flight drinking, with signature cocktails ready to be mixed up at your beckoning. You can indulge in quality spirits such as Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve scotch whisky and Hine Rare VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac, or prestigious wine vintages and varietals, served in real glassware. When it comes to drinking in style while soaring above the clouds, your best bet is choosing…

what makes vir das laugh?

Welcome to Maxim ! What’s happening, buddy? Which stand-up comedian are you following right now? I think Dave Chappelle is doing the best work that he has ever done in his career. In terms of a special that really blew my mind was Nanette by Hannah Gadsby. I feel this show pushed the boundaries and changed parameters of what stand-up comedy stands for. When it comes to Indian comedians, I’ve always been a big fan of Johnny Lever. I love a good hasya kavi muqabla; so, I love mushairas and poetry, and that kind of vibe. I spend a lot of time watching Urdu and Hindi comedians from Lucknow, as well. How different is it to perform in front of an international audience, compared to your Indian fans? I’ve been doing stand-up comedy for about…

the americans that weren’t

For 15 years, Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, the protagonists of the FX series The Americans, made their neighbours in Washington D.C., believe that they were upright American citizens living the American dream, all while they were actually running KGB operations from the basement of their home. Things then take an interesting turn when, in the pilot episode, a new couple moves next door. What’s the catch? Well, the husband of the newly moved family, Stan Beeman, works as a key operative in the FBI’s counterintelligence department. Even as the series culminated in a soul-crushing climax earlier this year, a situation of reel life imitating real emerged for the world to stand up and take notice as Putin and Trump met in Helsinki. Under the guise of a perfect family with two kids,…

up for a joint venture?

If you’ve ever smoked weed before, you don’t need a team of researchers to tell you that everything is better when you’re high. Food tastes better, music sounds better and, of course, sex definitely feels better. But, even though we know this as an undeniable fact, scientists at Stanford University went ahead and conducted a study to confirm what we already know: weed takes sex to a ‘higher’ level. For the study, which was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers analysed data from a massive group of 28,176 women and 22,943 men “to elucidate whether a relation between marijuana use and sexual frequency exists using a nationally representative sample of reproductive-age men and women.” The study found that “marijuana use is independently associated with increased sexual frequency and does not appear…

she of superpowers

Jade Lagardère isn’t the first model-hyphenate, but in a world full of model-actors, model-bloggers and model-DJs, she might be the only model-comic book author. The diva is the creator of Amber Blake, the comic book hero who looks just like… well, Lagardère. In the comic books, the character of Blake was abandoned at the age of five and today, she crusades against child abusers. “I’ve always been shocked and outraged at child abuse stories,” the Paris-based Lagardère says. “I wanted to create a hero who personally battled these abuses and then chose to devote her life to go after the villains involved.” The model says she has been immersed in the world of comic books since she was a little girl. “When you are born and raised in Belgium where comics are…
