Happy Wednesday! Almost forgot to put this up again, but then I remembered! It was a roller coaster of emotion.
I’ll start! I’ve been watching JHMS in the background a lot while I do other things, it’s a great background movie because every moment is interesting and pretty, so no matter when I look up and start paying attention, there will be something good to see. I’ve also been watching a lot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, because it’s streaming on Amazon Prime! And also, I feel no obligation to pay close attention to it, so it is just a nice thing in the background while I am writing.
For reading, I started Prem Hai Mera, Prem Chopra which is just as fun as I was hoping. Very lowkey and nice, as I have always heard Prem Chopra is in real life. But interesting little tidbits about the 50s-60s industry. For instance, he became friends with his future brother-in-law Premnath when they were stuck on elephants standing next to each other during a battle sequence in a Sikander film. The shot kept getting messed up, so they were up there all day for weeks at a time, and they used to sneak snacks when the director wasn’t looking.
And for thinking, I am thinking about Sunday School starting up again! First class this week, I’m supposed to print out and prepare all kinds of materials, and I’ve got a new teacher working with me which means I will be carrying dead weight. So, lot’s of planning required that I will have to squeeze in somewhere, and I will also need to practice my scary “pay attention to me” voice. Or at least my nice “I’m the cool young teacher who you want to be friends with, come play with me” voice.
Now, question for you! I put up a post yesterday about Bang Bang, my big silly fun happy making Movie movie of choice. What is yours? What film just always makes you smile and never makes you think?
