HAPPY SHAHRUKH MOVIE RELEASE WEEK!!!!!!!! The most wonderful week of the year! And blessed is the year in which it occurs more than once (2017). This has been a long hard slog, getting through 2018 with no release AT ALL for more than 12 months. But the dark time is finally over! Light is coming! Our Lord and Savior will arrive again on December 21! And I guess also on December 25th, for those who follow other faiths.Continue reading
Yes yes, it is that fun time again! The time for you to read/ignore the monthly reminder to promote me.
If you want to give me something nice for Christmas, just tweet my posts to your friends, or mention me in comments on other sites, or recommend me to podcasters/bloggers/professional writers/editors/whoever you may know. I’m bad/unlucky at this kind of thing, so I really need help through personal introductions.
So, that’s what I want for Christmas! A little surprise present of “hey! They like me! And they make other people like me too!”
It took me a looooooong time to write the first part, and I enjoyed it of course, but still a loooooooooong time. And there were only 12 views in the first 4 hours. So I wasn’t planning to write a second part, but then I do like this story, and at least a couple of you said you liked it too, so why not? (first part here)Continue reading
I just watched this movie for the 4th time, and it is still So. Good! And such a hard sell! I’ve seen it 4 times partly because people will only watch it if I sit next to them and force them to. Because the title alone really isn’t enough to sell it.Continue reading
Congrats to the new winner! And Congrats to last week’s winner Filmilibrarian! Your card is beautiful, and now everyone can admire it.
Do you know how hard it is to count to 10? SO HARD. Sometimes, you end up counting to 11 by accident. Anyway, the TGIF post is now fixed and it should be muuuuuuuch easier to figure out now. Here it is if you want to try again
It’s that time again, the time I remind everyone that it is a good thing to tip people who provide a service, even if that service is writing on the internet. Think of it this month as giving me a Christmas bonus. I provide a service all year, you can give me a special gift just this once.
To help support my work, donate to the site, $1 or $2 or $20 or $200, however much you want.
If you want to set up a recurring payment, then you can do that through Patreon:
Or, of course, you can always Buy My Book! Which gets me no real money (a percentage of a percentage on every sale), but makes me feel appreciated:
It’s Saturday, why think? I’m just gonna do a quick post based on a discussion in the comments, and also because I love writing fanfics (it’s like stretching after running).Continue reading
Happy Saturday! I get to sleep in, then do laundry, then go over to my friend-with-a-baby’s house and watch a movie with her and Baby, and then come home and go to bed early so I will be ready to lead a really tricky meeting on Sunday (I get to lead an open conversation about race between 5 white people, and then break the news I am leaving the committee because I am donezo)Continue reading
I love FanFic from the comments! Partly because it is always more fun when it is written as a collaboration, partly because it means I know at least one person will be interested in reading it. Although really, you should all read it. Not all my FanFics are good, but this is a really really good one.Continue reading
I both very much enjoy this movie, and also think it is one of the better movies of recent times. And I hope some of you feel the same way and are excited about this review!Continue reading
Shoot, I got behind on announcements again! I’ve got to delegate one of you to warn me when I do that. Anyway, I picked a really short one so there is a chance you can still watch it before Sunday.Continue reading
No movie review this week, but to make up for it, a review of the non-movie thing I did. My parents took me to see the Nutcracker! It was weird, there was no popcorn in the lobby and only a few desis and no trailers. What is this live theater MADNESS????Continue reading
Another fun game for us! And more challenging than you think, because I am not matching within the same photo. See how you do!Continue reading
So many videos today! And I don’t like ANY OF THEM. But maybe you will and can convince me to feel otherwise, that would be nice. I like liking things.Continue reading
TRIGGER WARNING. This film has the most accurate evocation of rape I have seen in, like, ever. Not dramatic or exciting, just painful and miserable and shameful. And done by your own intimate partner. So, don’t watch it if you can’t get past that. But DO watch it if you want to see a hopeful consideration of how someone can survive such an experience. And either way, READ THE SPOILERS. In this case, they won’t ruin the movie for you, and they will give you a lot to think and talk about.Continue reading
I need a break from work, so let me do something light for a bit. Even though I should really be working on my Akaash Vani review for tomorrow, but that is definitely not light.Continue reading
This is NOT “Ten Feminist Films”, because that’s a wee bit subjective. And it’s also NOT “Top Ten”, because that’s a way bit subjective. Instead, these are just ten films that bring up interesting discussions around gender. If you ever want to have a real downer of a movie night, you can show these and then make people discuss. Feel free to add on your own options both for films and discussion questions in the comments!!
I put these questions in the “Wednesday Watching” post earlier, but they were both really good and deserve their own post. Plus, I think people got distracted and missed them in Wednesday Watching. So a second chance!Continue reading
I already did Karna, now here is the other main character of the Mahabharat who is not part of the Pandava 5 brothers, Krishna.
At least Shahrukh didn’t wait until just after I went to sleep, he released this while I was well into REM. So I don’t feel TOO badly about missing it the exact moment it came out.
Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week, I can’t WAIT for it to be done. It’s just one of those weeks. And there’s no new movie on Friday so I can have a whooooole evening to myself.
This is a game suggestion from my sister, and I promised to give her credit, so here it is!!!! Credit!!!! Now that Nick-PC have broken the India-America celebrities bar, who else would we put together, were we to control the universe?
Sorry, the connection was really really fuzzy, so the first bit is very choppy. But then it gets better.
