Happy Wednesday!!!! I am feeling very allergy-ish today. Because it was sunny and things were growing, and now it is wet and things are stuffy and my eyes are itchy.
Reading: Anne of Avonlea! Just started it, already better than I remembered. Also, of course, your brilliant comments on the Anne of Green Gables post.
Watching: Saw the Tamil Don, which was terrible, but a fun read if you like “Margaret hated this movie” reviews. Started the new season of Bosch which continues to be better than you would reasonably expect it to be. Oh, and of course we watched Tezaab for our watchalong on Sunday and it was AMAZING. As always.
Thinking: Why do some days make you want to just curl up inside and never go out? It’s rainy all day today, and chilly, and coming on top of two sunny active days I just want to do NOTHING. Thank goodness, I work from home, so I can. Well, except for Albie Dog. But he’s pretty depressed today too, so we are sympatico.
Listening: My friend is considering flying to New York just to see “My Chemical Romance” in concert. Who are these people? The band I mean? I feel like I’ve heard the name, but I have no context. I know y’all are way WAY hipper then me, tell me things!
Now, question for you! It’s National Museum Day, apparently. What museums do you most want related to the film industry?
I’ve got two choices! First, RK Studios should be turned into a museum. One of those living villages sorts of museums, people in costume playing characters from olden times. Wouldn’t that be AMAZING? You could wander around and stop at an editing lab and have someone say “I am a editor, I was born in a village and came to Bombay for work. I was apprenticed to an editor here, and eventually made head of the department. these are my tools, here are some of the films I worked on”. And they could all be in period appropriate hair and clothes too.
Second choice, Rajesh Khanna’s house opened for tours. Restore it to how it was at the peak of his fame, get some volunteer docents, let us learn all the cool house tour things like “this was the first round tub ever built in India” or whatever.
