Happy Monday! I have a DOG!!!! A real dog, that weighs more than 20 pounds and grunts in her sleep and wags her whole body when she gets excited. So much better than the temporary dog that didn’t do any of that. So yeah, the week is off to a good start for me! And tonight I have the internet people over for a THIRD TIME and try to convince them that I am not hallucinating massive slow downs.
As always, you can ask me anything from the personal (“what is your favorite dog movie?”) to the specific (“what is a good Indian dog movie?”) to the general discussion (“dogs: good or bad?”).
The only rule is, you have to let me answer first! If someone else asks a question and you have something to say about it, just wait a second for me to start the discussion. And then you can leap in, it just works better that way.
Now, question for you! Well, two questions for you, a silly one and a different kind of silly one:
Dog name: Bagel or Hazel? I was leaning Hazel, but the dog wags her tail a whole lot more for Bagel, which makes me think she wants Bagel. Thoughts?
(she has what I would describe as a full-body wag)
A month or so back I put up a discussion post asking what was Aamir’s worst movie (hot debate between Parampara, Ishq, Mela, and Tum Mere Ho, with a minority vote for Dil). But not fair to single him out! So over the next few Mondays and Wednesdays, as I remember it and there isn’t anything else to talk about, I’ll hit up each star in turn.
What is Shahrukh’s worst movie? Not like “morally” or anything, but the movie that is just all around bad, nonsensical script, bad costumes, stupid songs, and so on?
I think I have to go with Guddu, the movie which revolves around giving Manisha Koirala his eyes until his mother prays really really hard and he survives and the mother dies and gives Manisha her eyes. Leading to the memorable ending in which a guest at the baby shower says that their new baby has Manisha’s eyes, to which Shahrukh replies “no, she has her grandmother’s eyes”.
Although, to be fair, Duplicate is also a strong contender for “worst ever”. And Josh was generally not great either.
