Happy Wednesday! Time to talk about what we’ve been thinking about. And watching without thinking, and reading without thinking.
I’ll go first! I watched two Telugu movies of the “pleasant to have on in the background, can kind of follow the plot without paying too much attention” variety. The post on the first went up yesterday, I’ll review the other next Tuesday. I am also now on watch 7 of City of God. 21 hours of one film seems like a lot within 11 days, but it really isn’t if you just cut down sleep to only 5 hours a night (Although that also leads to very grumpy fanfiction). Thank goodness Angamaly Diaries isn’t available yet, I’d probably just stop sleeping entirely to watch that one, or else quit my job so I can stop wasting 8 hours a day not watching it.
I made myself turn off City of God over the weekend so I could catch up with my blogging, and you will be proud to know that I have now finished ALL 19 SEASONS of Midsomer Murders. It’s the perfect blogging show, all the plot points are repeated 5 times over in case you weren’t paying attention, and it gives you something pretty to look at when you glance up from your computer.
Not much reading, because of the whole City of God obsession. I friend linked me to an interesting article on “Choli Ke Peeche”, kind of similar to my film summaries with a shot by shot breakdown. Oh, and the same friend reminded me about the amazing drag queen she introduced me to (we saw Dear Zindagi together!) who is doing this great series called “Bad Beti”. There’s an article about her here.
