This is fun, these random decade round up posts as stuff occurs to me. It’s slow days anyway as we all prepare for New Years Eve (and, of course, the New Years Day tweetalong!), so I might as well put up random stuff.

Yesterday the new Badshah song for Veere Di Wedding came out, which made me think back on how long hip-hop/rap has been part of the Indian film scene in one way or the other. I know almost nothing about this (like, I’m not even clear on the difference between “hip-hop” “rap” and “rock and roll”), but at least I can put up some fun videos and start the discussion!

So, here is a random collection of recent news items that make me happy. Feel free to bookmark this post for the next time you feel down!
