Happy Wednesday! I’m trying something new this week, this is supposed to be the post where we share things that don’t fit in anywhere else, and it just occurred to me that I should have a “listening” section for the songs you are enjoying right now.
Reading: I’m enjoying my last gasp of pleasure reading before I plunge into Thugs so I can at least say I skimmed the whole thing before the movie comes out. So, Terry Pratchett and Lois Bujold alternating. Interesting authors to compare, because one of them is a man who is so good at writing women that I keep forgetting it is a man, and the other is a woman who is so good at writing men that I keep forgetting it is a woman.
Thinking: Poor Dog Hazel, I got her a little nose harness. It doesn’t hurt, but it itches. On the other hand, she looks very cute in it. And it will be good for training and all that. But mostly, it looks very cute.
Watching: I’m rewatching Lakshya in preparation for the Friday classic post, without subtitles which is an interesting challenge. The problem is, Prime subtitles show up on my laptop but not on my TV. I don’t know why, and I’ll send Amazon an error report, but in the meantime I get to see how well I remember the film and how many Hindi words I can figure out.
Listening: My new section! I’m all excited! Right now I am feeling like light songs mostly. So I’ve returned to the JHMS soundtrack again. My most favorite song from it is always “Hawayein”, but I think on this listen “Butterfly” is my second most favorite (the second varies time to time). I’ve also got a couple odd forgotten ones from other albums, the female voiced “Tareefan” from Veere Di Wedding, which I like so much better than the male voiced one. And “Alizeh” from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which I think is just beautiful but was only over the end credits of the movie. And what is becoming my favorite song from Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, “Hayati” which was barely used in the film. It’s the only non-light sounding song I’m listening to right now, make sure to let it play a bit so you can see what I mean.
So, what are you listening to? And reading and watching and thinking?
