Watch This Video and Tell Me I’m Not Crazy!!!!!

I put up this video as part of my Friendship Day post, and it got no comments, which makes me think either no one watched it, or it isn’t as remarkable as it feels to me.  And I am going slowly insane trying to figure out which it is.  Please!  Watch and comment and tell me I’m not crazy!

TGIF: Inspired By Suhana, Best/Worst Magazine Covers

Kind of surprised I haven’t done this already.  Oh well, we are here now!  I don’t promise a comprehensive overview, but I am going to pick out the most strikingly different covers I can find.

Silly Sunday: Father’s Day! Father Plots For Everyone, Pick Your Favorite

Happy Father’s Day!  This is a repost from last year, but it is very long and worth rereading.  And also very very good, I forgot how good this one was!  There’s Rana and Shahrukh fighting in wet shirts, Ranbir and Sonakshi falling in love, Varun Dhawan and a baby, all kinds of good things.  Also, it’s a Father’s Day Multiverse and all the stories are connected.  And anyway, I am spending 6 hours at church today (service plus organizing coffee hour plus meeting), so I earned a rerun.

TGIW: Dhoti Men, Because My Boss is Out of the Office Today

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)

Silly Sunday: Female Friendship Vengeance Story, Inspired by Alia and Ranbir and Kat

Happy Sunday!  I wrote soooooooooooooooo much yesterday, and like good high quality stuff, reviews of Bhavesh Joshi and Veere Di Wedding.  So this morning, I get to write short total trash, in a nice change of pace.  Let’s pretend the world is a bad romance novel of the Judith Kranz type and rewrite reality!

Silly Narrowcasting Post Warning! Recasting Brooklyn 99 With Indian Actors, Something NO ONE is Interested In

I already did a very long detailed take down of Bharat Ane Nenu this morning, including an overview of the Indian Constitution and it’s deeper social meaning, I’m exhausted, and I know at least one of you also watches both B99 and Indian film, so I am going to indulge myself with a fun easy recasting post.  Plus, the news just broke that B99 was canceled, so the time is ripe for an Indian spin off.

Sonam Wedding Final Update: 2am, Shahrukh and Salman are Both Here, Sonam’s in Her Comfy Clothes, Let’s Get This Party STARTED!!!!!

Those noble souls with cell phone cameras and twitter accounts, they are the real heroes!  Making us feel like we are there partying with everyone else.  Only, less hot and drunk and vaguely tired.

Sonam Wedding Part 2: The Big Day! Amitabh is There

More photos!  And Ranveer finally makes an appearance.  Question, how horrible is it for Dips to be in America at the Met Gala while her boyfriend’s cousin is getting married?  Is that like an acceptable thing for a girlfriend to do, pick a work event over a family wedding?  If the wedding is just your boyfriend’s cousin?

Silly Sunday: Movies For Anushka! Reunion with Ranveer, New Jodi With Ayushmann, and New SRK Movie!

Once again, you did the work for me!  At least partially.  For Anushka’s birthday, we were talking about who we wanted to see her with in her next movies, and that started me out with thinking about what those movies would be like.

Upcoming Movies: The Next Film of Amitabh, Rajinikanth, Ranveer, and Dhanush

Lots of first looks!  Which are always kind of “how is this news?” but sometimes slightly interesting.  These were slightly interesting ones.

Dil Dhadakne Do: A Family Film

Here’s a random post.  There’s a big thought provoking scary hard important post coming tomorrow morning, but I wanted one more nice film discussion post first.  And Angie reminded me that I had still not written about this film.

News Round-Up Part 2: Ranveer and YRF, Aanand L Rai and Rajkumar Santoshi, Aditya Chopra and Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham and Release Dates, Sui Dhaaga and Valentine’s Day, Sanjay Dutt and Scandal

News round-up part two!  Which I wrote at the same time as part one, but I wanted to post them separately so you didn’t have to dig through the comments to find the topic you were interested in.  You can comment here on these stories, and on the other post on the other stories.

Padmavat Full Summary (SPOILERS) Part 3: A Lot of Filler, and then a Bad Life Lesson

Next part!  I think I am on the downward stretch now.  Partly because there is an awful lot of what feels like “filler” starting with this section.  So I can skip all kinds of things, or at least only deal with them briefly. (full index of Padmavat here)

Padmavat Summary, WHOLE THING, (SPOILERS), Part 2

Part 1 came out yesterday, moving right along to part 2.  This isn’t a real “scene by scene”, not the way I have done it in the past with every line and every shot considered.  This is more a summary of the film with some minor discussion, similar to what I did for Bajirao. (full index of summary here)

Padmavat WHOLE THING! Part 1 (SPOILERS): Ostriches and Pearls and Brahmins, Oh My!

This is a tricky one, on the one hand there is so much in it that I really want to go through step by step and make sure I don’t miss anything.  On the other hand, there isn’t enough in it (and I don’t want to spend so much time) for me to do a “real” scene by scene, shot by shot, style discussion.  So I’m gonna do kind of a half one.  Sort of like I did for Bajirao.  Go through everything that happened, but not in super detail. (no spoiler review is here)

TGIF: FilmFare! Who Wore it Best Which Year? Madhuri versus Madhuri, Dia versus Dia, Sonam versus Sonam, Rekha versus Rekha, Shahrukh versus Shahrukh, and Ranveer versus Ranveer

In our discussion on this year’s FilmFare post, we ended up linking back to previous years for reference, which made me think of a TGIF theme!  Why not put up photos from previous years and have people compete with themselves? (index of all TGIF posts here)

Silly Sunday FanFic: Dogs! Dogs dogs dogs dogs dogs. And Shahrukh.

I spent three hours yesterday looking at dogs.  Well, 20 minutes looking at dogs, 2 hours and 40 minutes driving between shelters that turned out to be closed or not have any dogs and talking about dogs with my friend who came with me in order to stop me from taking home every dog there.  Anyway, what with all the doggie talk, it is obvious what the topic of this week’s fanfic will be.

Starter Kit: Rising Male Stars

I could give you an elaborate reason why I felt the need for this post, but there really isn’t one besides “my views are down thanks to Thanksgiving and I want something that will get us all talking”.  So, starter kit for male stars!

Silly Sunday: TV Show Remakes!!!!

This is just because I have been watching Cheers and now I can’t get the idea of a remake out of my head.  So I had to dig up a few more TV show options as well, just to round out the post.  Feel free to give me suggestions in the comments for more I could use if I missed your favorite!  Especially since my TV taste trends towards the classic.

News Round-Up: Salman as a Father, Ranveer as a Cricketer, Abhishek as a Flake

I’m getting a little better at this, checking the news stories.  Still not great, I’m still only using one source which is terrible, and I still don’t have a ton of background on things.  But I’m getting there!

TGIF: Elevator Fantasies

I was going to make this my Sunday post, but I really feel like the Sunday options should be full and in depth sort of things.  Whereas TGIF is more for the “read in 5 minutes, return to whenever you feel down kind of stuff”.  And so, inspired by a conversation I had with Filmilibrarian in the comments a couple days ago, “What every movie star would do if you were trapped in an elevator with them for 6 hours”.  (oh, and feel free to play along in the comments if you have an alternate idea, or for an actor I missed)
