Happy Sunday! And Happy Pride Month! Yesterday we watched Dostana together, today we consider sequels we would like to see! Real sequels, that deal with the unresolved emotions of the original.Continue reading

I hope all the mothers of DCIB are being properly celebrated by their families in some sort of orgy of excitement that will not allow time to read a blog. But just in case, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!!Continue reading
I am totally blanking. Very excited about it of course, just no ideas are coming into my head. You gotta help me!Continue reading
This is going to be a shallow dive. But should still be interesting, even if I just skim the surface of the topic.Continue reading
Happy Saturday! I am so excited to be able to focus on my little projects, instead of having to do work-work.Continue reading
Well, not “millennial”, Design for Living was almost 100 years ago, and there is the whole complicated Duchess of Devonshire-Lady Elizabeth Foster-Duke of Devonshire thing. But I guess the word “throuple” is new, so that’s something my generation has contributed to relationships.Continue reading
This is “Celebrate Bisexuality Day”. So it seems a great time for a post about those songs that make you go “wait, does the hero/heroine have more chemistry with his friend or with the heroine/hero?”Continue reading
This is a movie that is endlessly enjoyable, if you don’t expect it to be realistic. Or logical. Or smart. It’s just Fun.Continue reading
Happy Wednesday! Do I want to see Article 15 this Friday? It looks sooooooooooo depressing. How many of you really really want a review?Continue reading
Seems like a good time to do one of my “this isn’t everything, or even the best things, this is just some stuff to think about” posts on queerness with Ek Ladki Ko Dekho coming out soon. Plus, I love our little discussion posts!Continue reading
This is going to read differently from my normal posts. It’s a paper I wrote years ago, that was published in a book and a journal. So it is very academic sounding and stuff, the original even has footnotes (you can read it here). It is also very clear and certain in its style, the way academic writing is supposed to be. That doesn’t mean I think it is perfect and that you can’t disagree with it just as much as with any of the other stuff I write with all the “I think”s and “Possibly”s and “You could see this as”s. Mostly I just thought it was an interesting thing to look back on today as 377 is once again dead. Also, you get to see how I managed to sneak the phrase “molten beefcake” into an academic journal.
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 year help is needed more than ever, there is a decent chance many of my relatives will be getting “donation in your name” gifts. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be fun! Here are some of the groups that I particularly like, with a filmi explanation for why you should care. (I feel bad not including any Indian organizations, but I am nervous about endorsing the wrong ones since I don’t know enough about their work on the ground level. All the ones listed below I know well and can confidently endorse)
