Happy Wednesday! I’ve got a follow up to Monday’s question for you, and also of course we can just generally talk about what we are watching and reading and thinking.
Reading: Niviblog linked in the comments to this great post from Bardwaj Rangan on Padmavat. Mostly great because he shows the appropriate way to have a conversation and respond to Swara’s ideas in her post in a mature productive manner. It is possible to disagree with someone and still respect their thoughts! Bardwaj is here, and the link to the post where I reprint all of Swara and discuss why her post was intelligent and well-written is here.
Watching: New Girl is my latest “sitcom in the background while I blog” choice. And of course I can’t watch something without recasting it. Genelia D’Souza as Jess, Ritiesh Deshmukh as Nick, Deepika as Cece, Ranveer as Schmidt, Jim Sarbh as Winston.
Thinking: I think one of the (many) minor personality problems between me and my temporary dog is that she is a night person and I am a morning person. So she keeps me up sooooooooooo late, and then in the morning I want to go for a walk and start our day and she is still sleeping. I am experimenting with having our evening walk a little earlier in the evening, we will see if that helps.
Now, question! On Monday I asked if you are a “I love only one person and have no interest in anything else, not even watching movies in which they do not appear” kind of fan, or a “I love only one person, but am also interested in the general industry they come from and have other lessor loves” kind of fan, or a “I love many people equally” kind of fan.
Here’s the flipside, are you someone who has a sudden illogical intense hatred for someone? And if so, is it many someones or only one? And do you ever get over it?
For me, it is Randeep Hooda. And it is really completely illogical. I find something about his screen presence very distasteful and kind of dull, and this makes me hate him. And I don’t think I will ever get over it.
Also, Johnny Lever. It’s less personal with him, more just that I don’t enjoy him, not that he is distasteful.
On the other hand, I used to really dislike Kareena Kapoor, but as she has matured and I have matured, I have come to really appreciate her.
How about you?
