Netflix List for July: A Good Shahrukh Film, a Rom-Com Classic, and a Perfect Malayalam Film Arrive

Time for a Netflix update!  Which I only do once a month or so, so it’s not up to the minute accurate.  But hopefully I make up for that with the descriptions I give them.  (Accessbollywood.net does the real work of keeping this list updated, you should definitely absolutely subscribe to them for your day to day updates.)

Happy Summer Solstice/My Aunt Bernice’s Birthday!

Never actually met Aunt Bernice, she was my great-great-aunt, but every summer solstice my grandmother would mention that it was also Aunt Bernice’s birthday and now that is burned into my brain, the two go together.  Pagan earth based sun rituals, and a spinster who worked for a mail order catalog company for 40 years.
