That isn’t a good description, because it isn’t describable! But I’m having one of those weeks that tend to come in the spring when I keep feeling out of tune with the world and as though something wonderful is almost about to happen but not yet.Continue reading
I was all set for people to get angry with me for my Hindi Film 101 on class and Kangana, and nothing. And not really any comments on my Super Deluxe review either (if someone wants to link back to it from the Bardwaj review page as an example of a review that is critical of the film, that would be great). Anyway, when the comments drop down, so does my ability to think abstractly and intelligently and I end up putting up stupid posts like this in an attempt to get a response from the void.Continue reading
I just spent a really long time writing a detailed review and summary of Super Deluxe, and now I am exhausted and I just want a fun post! So here is last year’s post on songs with trickster heroes.Continue reading
Somehow I acclimated to the two hour time change going to California very easily, but coming back home is ROUGH. Plus the usual kind of spiritual upset of trying to retrain my brain to being at home instead of on vacation. And being greeted by two days worth of extra work. It’s all hard, I need songs to help.Continue reading
I’m not the only one who secretly loves English language song breaks, right? As an English speaker, I can actually sing them! Which is great. But on the other hand, feeling the need for an English language song break usually indicates that the song itself is not that great.Continue reading
Long story short, still no dog! But I got to spend a fun 10 hours driving literally all over the city to church, the pound, a series of adoption events, and finally the movie. And then milk on the way home. But because I was planning on getting a dog, I dressed up for the dog, and it is way WAY too cold for a dress today. And now I am still completely freezing even after being home for 20 minutes. So, time to pull out some hot songs to warm me up!Continue reading
I’m really sleepy. The whole “getting up at dawn to get my car fixed” yesterday really wore me out. And I’ve been sleeping weird because I still don’t have a dog (another post on that today! Fun fun! For my doggie subset of readers). Anyway, get ready for me to be lazy and give the people what they want. As Neha Dhupia says, “Only Sex and SRK sell”.Continue reading
I’m the customer support supervisor at work, which means I get my own office and a window (oooo!), but also I get to take the really complicated phone calls. And it has not been a good day for phone calls. Or maybe, it has been a good day for phone calls? What I am saying is, I have been on the phone straight through for the past 5 hours and it is beginning to get a bit stressy. I’m supposed to also do a bunch of really urgent work things, and I’d like to actually respond to your comments on the blog, plus personal emails and stuff, but that’s not going to happen today. Also lunch, lunch is not going to happen. I’ve been trying to eat an apple for 5 hours, and I’m still only two bites in.Continue reading
Oh boy, fun post! And one that I definitely need your help with, because there are just so many romantic songs out there.Continue reading
This is a silly silly post. But whatever, I’m exhausted from 3 days of hard house labor and I am guessing the 50% of my readers who are American are either exhausted from that, or from travel. So let’s all be silly together!
Sorry, I know the headline is lame, but my Grandma is up in heaven reading this blog everyday and she would never forgive me if I used actual swears, especially since it is her birthday tomorrow. Just fill in that I actually meant the-real-word-for-“Heck”.
What with the Shahrukh Extravaganza, I haven’t celebrated Aish before this year. But now I’ve got time, why not! I’ll celebrate the part of her I like best, her song sequences.
You ready to get spooooooooooky? Well, kind of. I can’t really think of many super scary Indian films.
Well, I seem to have stopped sleeping. Through my own stupidity, so I am also very angry at my past self. Oh well, maybe I can stay up all night tonight and reset my internal clock.
You ready for some fist pump moments of female power? I know I am! And I have collected them here, so long as the nice people on youtube don’t pull them down.
Happy Wednesday! I’m trying something new this week, this is supposed to be the post where we share things that don’t fit in anywhere else, and it just occurred to me that I should have a “listening” section for the songs you are enjoying right now.
It’s been overcast all day today here, and I am facing down a very long and difficult weekend, so I need things to smile about! If you also need things to smile about, I highly recommend this post. At least one, if not many, of these songs will make you smile.
Procrastinatrix just mentioned a helpful post I wrote on this, and I looked and looked and I don’t think it was a post, I think it was actually in my book. So if I were mean, I would make this headline and then the post would just be “ha ha, buy my book!” But now I kind of want to write the post! And it will be better than the book (although you should still buy the book) because I can use video link examples.
How is this the first time I remembered to celebrate Sonu’s birthday? Oh well, to make up for it, I will do 30 songs, to match his birth date of July 30th.
Filmilibrarian just said in a comment that she was trying to get back to listening to more music, and we had a nice exchange about the songs we like. And since I just put up my Ali Zafar post and need something to decompress with, and something to make us all a community even if we disagree, I thought it might be nice to have a little friendly “lets all enjoy stuff together” post.
It’s my sister’s birthday, YAAAAAAAY! As of 4 minutes ago EST. And this is her nice little bonus surprise gift, on top of her actual presents that have (hopefully) arrived in the mail.
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.
Nothing interesting in the news today (so desperate that outlets are falling back on the good old reliable Don 3 rumors), no birthdays, I already put up a review, so time to fall back on the oooooold reliable fill in, a theme song post! But a fun theme this time (I hope), songs with people jumping around!
