Discussion Post: What is Your Favorite/The Funnest Era of Indian Film?

Not “best”. If I say “best”, everyone’s gonna be all “1950s! Guru Dutt! Raj Kapoor! Giants walked the earth!” And of course that’s true. But was it really FUN back then? With all that exhausting depth and brilliance flying around everywhere?

Discussion Post: It’s Alia’s Birthday! What is Your Favorite Alia Movie? ALSO, Do You Think She is Super Talented or More Super Lucky?

Happy 27th Birthday Alia! You don’t get a special post of any kind (maybe tomorrow) because I got like 4 hours of sleep last night, and the night before, and I have that kind of physical grief hangover thing. Like, I’m not upset my aunt is dead, because it happened months ago after months of sickness, but it’s still A Thing to go see her buried and clean out her house and stuff. I told you all that’s why I was taking a train trip this weekend, right? Anyway, Alia gets a discussion post instead.

Saturday Quiz and Discussion! Take This Simple Test and Discover Who Your Dream Lover Is!

This is a fun off-shoot of this post, in which I described (as I saw them) the three types of romantic fantasy men in Indian film.

What Do You Want For Christmas From DCIB? Post Suggestions/Requests For the Next Few Weeks!

Well, it has begun, the Dark Times. As everyone flutters about doing things in the meat world with family and friends and so on over the holidays, poor me in the digital world is left behind, forgotten. Which can also be seen as an opportunity for really weird posts no one else will care about.

Discussion Post: Which of These Onscreen Couples Had Sex and Which Remained Chaste?

It’s really not an important question, I am aware. But then, that’s what makes it so fun to discuss! Also, it’s so overcast here today that it legitimately does not look like the sub has come up. I need something dumb and frivolous to talk about!

2010 Discussion Post: My Name is Khan, What Made You Ugly Cry and What Made You Giggle?

Such an odd movie. I’ve yet to show it to someone who didn’t end up a sobbing broken mess by the end. Or to someone who didn’t giggle a bit at a scene here or there. The odd thing is, the “sobbing broken” moments and the “giggle” moments seem slightly different for each person.
