I just put this up back in May for international labor day. But in America we have our own special “we’re no commies” Labor Day in September. Oh well, it’s a fun post and this gave me a chance to update and add on to it again.
I thought the long Shahrukh interview post would give us plenty to talk about, but there aren’t that many comments over there. From which I can only assume, no one loves Shahrukh any more. I am sure he is desperately refreshing the page thinking “surely SOMEONE has something to say about me! Surely it can’t be that no one is interested any more?” Anyway, since you all find Shahrukh boring, I will bring up a new topic for us to talk about.
Well, it’s the Friday after Independence Day. I should do something patriotic, right? And all I can think of is the Indian colors. Oh well, good enough. My brain is fried after writing my two recent brilliant Hindi Film 101 pieces (read them! They are very good, even if they don’t have sexy photos and star gossip)
We get so much joy out of Kerala films, we really should give more back to those whose culture and society has helped create them.
Suggestion courtesy of Meenakshy, I’m gonna do best eyes in Indian film. In multiple categories, because you can’t really compare, like, Madhuri versus young Salman.
Happy Sunday! I have to go lead a meeting at church in a bit, but first I get to be totally frivolous and ridiculous with the Silly Sunday stories. Hopefully I don’t mix this up with my meeting agenda and accidentally start reading it aloud.
National Ice Cream Day is actually Sunday (ooo! FanFic theme?), but I am stealing it for today for TGIF. Because I love those “what food is your favorite star?” kind of posts!
This is fun! I put up a discussion question about least favorite cliches, and I am going to use them as a jumping off point and see if I can make an entire film including all the cliches, but fixed. Continue reading
Happy Tuesday! The box office figures for this week released early, so I already wrote about them, which gives me an opening in the schedule to do a news round-up. What fun!
My boss is gone today which means I can look at photos on my computer without fear of being observed and judged. Well, my co-workers might judge me, but whatever, I don’t care what they think. And I was just talking with Meenakshy about who looks good in a Dhoti, so why not do a Dhoti post? Similar too but different from my previous Lungi post. (for the purposes of this post, “Dhoti” means any single cloth that is used as a wrap skirt by an Indian man)
It came up in discussion that Hrithik has one tragic gap in his filmography: not enough straight sexiness!!!! And, as his impending inevitable sexy horizon comes ever closer (have you see Rakesh? Not a good sign for middle-aged Duggu!), it is increasingly important that he grabs these chances while he has them. Also from discussion, why is there no movie about a movie star falling in love with an average girl? It seems like such an obvious fantasy!
Isn’t it nice when there is a holiday (yes, it’s a real thing, all the stores are giving discounts) to give me a theme for my post? And what could be simpler than to match donuts with movie stars?
No reason, and not that many videos this time, but there is a new Lioness13xx which is worth celebrating, and I found a Pranushka one for you Prabhas obsessives.
Well, it’s the B2 anniversary today. And I truly have NOTHING left to say about it. I’ll be reposting my index of full coverage in case you want a trip through memory lane, but in terms of thematic analysis and so on, I am empty. However, I can always write fanfic!!!! So the best I can do for new content is remix the plot and set it in different eras.
Happy Friday! Sorry this is late, crazy day at work, I had to share my computer so looking at sexy photos was a no-go. On the other hand, we also had a baby visit at work, which inspired this post. Hopefully worth the wait.
My boss’ wife is sick today, so he had to bring his two year old into the office. She is the sweetest little thing and they are soooooooooooooooo cute together. And thus the inspiration for this post!
Also in honor of my friend who’s baby is arriving any day now!!!!! Anyway, BABIES!
I know I’ve been doing a lot of song posts lately, but I am sick of reporting on Padmavat and not much else has been happening. So, songs it is! Just to keep us busy for a bit until the one-two of Padman and Aiyaary next week. Oh, and there’s a dog video at the end, if you are into that sort of thing.
I completely forgot our southerners last week, and I am doing an all-Hindi “Best of 2017” contest, so I really feel like I need to make up for it. And the best way I can is an Entire Post of Southern Gentleman. In their native garb.
Happy Friday! My goodness this has been a frustrating day. The second I get in to anything at work the phone rings and I have to stop. Whether it is blogging or sending an email or doing accounting stuff for work-work, I just don’t have long enough to be able to focus on it. I am writing this right now at about 2pm, we’ll see if I am able to finish and publish this thing before midnight. Anyway, Red! For AIDs and Christmas!!!
Happy Sunday! Much later than usual. Because I am visiting my sister and I was busy learning how to crochet and stuff. Which brings me to this post! In honor of my sister industriously knitting away next to me, and our conversation on the TGIF post of the lack of nice handmade sweaters in the world, a knitting themed fanfic post!!!!
Happy first TGIF post after Shahrukh month! And it will be (almost) Shahrukh free! Because he isn’t always “cuddly”. In the “teddy bear” kind of way.
Extra news post this week, because there was some interesting stuff, and also I felt like we needed something to talk about besides Shahrukh.
