Well, I’m having a rumpled start to the week! Karan sent out an embarrassingly sycophantic tweet this morning, there’s a final warm spell hitting Chicago which is making me not able to sleep, the elevator is broken (again) at work so I have to keep running up and down the really abnormally steep stairs, and my boss gave Dog Hazel some food she shouldn’t eat which wasn’t a big deal except that I had to tell my boss not to do that, which was an awkward upturning of our usual power structure (he’s in charge of me, but I’m in charge of Dog Hazel). Anyway, time for a soothing interesting post with a lot of great things to watch in it.
Follow up to my Rom-Com post! And one I actually feel more deeply about, there are a lot of great clever action films out there that don’t get attention while big stupid ones do, a much bigger problem with action than in the rom-com genre.
Nothing interesting in the news today (so desperate that outlets are falling back on the good old reliable Don 3 rumors), no birthdays, I already put up a review, so time to fall back on the oooooold reliable fill in, a theme song post! But a fun theme this time (I hope), songs with people jumping around!
It’s really not fair to all us account manager types that the end of the year accounting close period comes right after Christmas. I’m still drinking eggnog for breakfast! I’m not emotionally or mentally ready to be back at work! Luckily, Indian soundtracks are here for me. Let me walk you through the soundtrack of my work life.
NOT my best friend!!!! She is pushing for that commitment, but I am holding film against it, because that is the kiss of death. Once you say “best friend”, the relationship ends immediately (in my experience). Like when celebrity couples get tattoos of each other (Saif and Kareena excepted). But I will say “closest friend”. And, weirdly, she has the exact same birthday as my father. Which creates a little testing of loyalties every year as I try to schedule them around each other. Also Mickey Mouse, but I never really do anything to celebrate him, so it doesn’t really effect my plans.
This is inspired by Alisa, our new commentator who is trying to get a handle on the films. And also likes Aamir, thus the orgy of Aamir at the end this. It’s half tongue in cheek, just an excuse for fun songs, but also serious, these songs will really give you a leg up on some common words.
Happy Wednesday! Almost forgot to put this up again, but then I remembered! It was a roller coaster of emotion.
I’m still trying to get back in the swing of “normal” posting after the whole Jab Harry Met Sejal massive month long series. Technically I don’t “owe” another review right now, I’ve done my Malayalam and Tamil/Telugu for the week, my DDLJ (yes, I am finally back to DDLJ) will be going up sometime tomorrow, Hindi Film 101 is happening like usual on Thursday, but it just doesn’t feel like enough! So, here, have a bonus tiny review of a silly silly loveable movie.
Happy Birthday Kat! You are not my favorite actress, but I think I can dig up my traditional 12 reasons to love you. Especially if most of them are songs, because you really are a fun dancer to watch!
