Happy Saturday! Training class number 2 today, I’m excited! We’ve mostly got “sit”, and we sometimes have “down”. “Come” is still a misty dream though. The world is too exciting to drop everything just because I ask him to come to me.
Now, what can we talk about while I am off Doing Things? Hmmm. There’s no real interesting news out there, besides Bharat teasers and stuff. Unless something exciting like Shahrukh announcing his next movie happens while I am asleep.
So I guess we have to have another theoretical discussion! Nothing else to do on a sleepy Saturday. Hmmm, what’s a good Saturday discussion topic? Nothing too hard to think about, it is Saturday after all.
Oh, here’s a fun one! What’s your comfort food movie? The one that always cheers you up when you are feeling down?
My problem is, I have a close to eidetic memory for films. So at a certain point I just can’t watch a movie any more because it is burned into my brain so clearly that it is like seeing double. So my comfort food movie is a moving target. In the past few years I cranked through Manam, Ohm Shanthi Oshaana, Jab Harry Met Sejal, and A Gentleman. Now I seem to have landed on Ek Ladki Ko Dekha.
UPDATE: Okay, I’ve got two actual stories for us to talk about! Well, mini-stories
Brahmastra just announced a delay, right after it announced the Christmas 2019 release. And Ayan Mukherjee did this whole long looooooooooong statement explaining why. Who here believes it was actual CGI delays and who here believes it was because they were afraid of Dabangg 3? I am torn myself. On the one hand, this movie has been delayed so many times and it will require massive special effects, so maybe. But on the other hand, the delay/rescheduling was announced like 24 hours after the Dabangg 3 release date was confirmed, which is a bit suspicious.
And in other news, Alia is apparently doing a cameo in SOTY2 as part of something called “The Hook-Up Song”.
I have many thoughts, but the first one is, “Hey! Does no one realize ‘Talia’ is an actual semi-common name?” My best friend from 4 to 18 (she lived across the street, and then we both went to college and drifted apart) was named Talia. This is very weird for me. What do you think?
