Okay, my last post was pretty hardcore political. Well, as political as movie news gets. You ready for a nice refreshing light weight gossip post?
So I just had a friend over to hang out and watch songs and watch me make pumpkin bread. And I was showing her a bunch of the stuff I had discovered since the last time she came over. And she recognized one of the songs!
I am celebrating by NOT having coffee! Because it’s Thursday, and I never have coffee on Thursdays. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, yes. And then I detox for two days, sleep all weekend, and get back on the horse again on Monday. Anyway, I thought it would be a good topic for a theme songs post.
Thank you Karan for not saying what time you would post this one exactly, and therefore not making me stay up all night waiting! Much better to have it just suddenly appear in my twitter feed.
I was sailing along through this movie, dum-de-dum, more or less seeing where it was going, and then BAM! The last half hour hits, and everything changes! Such an odd experience! Kind of like when you miss the last step on the stairs.
I’m tired of sifting through the news to find the stories that are confirmed and reliable and also seem believable based on previous news stories! I’m going wild and reporting a bunch of completely unverified stuff that people made up because it sounds good!
I thought I was done with birthdays! And then I saw #ShaheedBhagatSingh trending on twitter. So, one more post! But since this isn’t really film person, it’s just going to be a quick thing.
I just finished my three part Yash Chopra post, and then Ranbir Kapoor pops up, and now Lata! Gah! Stop being born, people! Anyway, Lata will have to be content with 16 reasons I love her for the 16 notes in the Indian scale. I’m not doing another 80+ after I just did it for Yashji.
Let’s be real, was anyone expecting any kind of a hit for Banjo? No, right? No matter how many songs you release or how hard you promote it, no one is turning out for a Ritiesh and Nargis starrer.
Happy Birthday Ranbir! I’m not giving you 33 reasons, because you haven’t been in enough movies for me to come up with them! Plus, I am worn out after my 84 for Yash Chopra. But, I will give you 12! And maybe, if Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is really good, you will earn 34 for next year.
I thought there was news today, but then I dug into it, and yeah, there’s no news. It’s just rumors and suppositions with famous names thrown in to make me click the link. Oh well.
Okay, let’s do this! Possibly nobody but me cares as much about Yashji, but come on! The man invented a whole genre of film! Founded the only studio still on firm financial ground! Created generations of stars! He deserves 84 reasons to love him on his birthday. Even if they are mostly songs. Part 1 here and Part 3 here.
I know, he’s dead. But that’s no reason not to celebrate his life! Especially because Dev himself seems like someone who was always down for a celebration. So, here are 12 random reasons to celebrate!
I almost feel bad, I’ve been putting up so many posts beating the war drums against the corporate run studios, it kind of seems mean. But then, they’re corporations! They don’t have feelings.
I’d heard good things about it, from people I trusted (like Anupama Chopra), so I finally gave in and watched. And you know, it was good! Just like everyone said!
