Sorry! Work was NOT FUN today, so I didn’t get quite as complete and extensive as I should have in my original Chocolate heroes post. Which just gives me an excuse for an additional post, with the extra special ones, the imported handcrafted special fillings ones (I may have to dig my emergency chocolate box out of the freezer tonight).
I am seriously considering wearing a swimsuit tomorrow, and to mentally prepare myself, I am going to look at allllllllllllllllll the movie stars in their swimwear,
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.
I can’t stop myself! I keep looking at Sonam wedding videos! And, thanks to the latest batch, I now have several competing “ships” that I am rooting for. And I am sharing them with you, in the hope of either getting companions on board the SS Relationship, or else getting a solid common sense mind to drag me off.
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.
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.
I’m going to spoil this film, but it is so open to interpretation, you can read my version and go see it and come out with a version all of your own. So I don’t know if I need to warn you away from this review or not. If you want to avoid just in case, my No Spoilers review is here.
This was a confusing film. It felt like it was going one way and then it went the other. Most of all though, it feels like it fully grasps accidents and recovery in a way that most melodramatic films shy away from.
I woke up at 2am and couldn’t get back to sleep, which worked out perfectly because that is also when the October teaser came out. So I can put up this post real quick right now.
I put this together for last year’s women’s day, and it was so good I had to repost and expand it. My first thought for International Women’s Day was a “look at these pretty women!” post, but I already did that. So, I’m going to go a little deeper. International Women’s Day is supposed to be about men respecting women. Doesn’t always work, of course, but that’s the idea. And so I want to put up some pictures of men being happily dominated by women
Well, here’s exciting news! For the first time since these things started being tracked, Shahrukh Khan is NOT the most valuable celebrity brand in India!!!! Instead, he has been knocked off his perch by Virat Kohli. Which made me start thinking in a different way about Virat, about Shahrukh, and about all the other perches Shahrukh should be knocked off of.
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.
Salman is everywhere today! Sometimes actually mentioned, sometimes just implied. I guess that’s fair, it is his Birthday Week after all.
Happy first Sunday of Advent! Naturally, I had to do a Christmas themed post (to match my Christmas themed TGIF post). I briefly considered doing unmarried mothers in honor of Mary, but then I decided to think small instead and use the random small items of Christmas as jumping off points for story ideas.
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!
Commentors? Commentatorite? I think I’ll stick with Commentator. Anyway, I’m not going to call you out, but you mentioned in passing your birthday over two months ago, and I immediately wrote and scheduled this post for today as a special treat. Feel free to identify yourself in the comments if you want! (you mentioned your birthday more recently, but I want credit for figuring it out and scheduling this post ages ago before you came right out and said it!)
Nothing super interesting to discuss today, but some little bits of things to throw out there for all of us to chew on (now I am imagining myself as a zookeeper throwing news meat to my pack of lion-commentators to fight over and masticate down to nothing).
The mere fact of Salman being in this film isn’t a spoiler, right? That’s been so heavily promoted that you can’t escape it? The exact manner of his appearance has not been promoted, but I’ll tell you that. The rest of the plot, definitely spoilers. Yes, even if you have seen the original. (review of the original Judwaa here and no spoiler review of Judwaa 2 here)
Thank you Aamir! Both for releasing a song timed so I can watch it before leaving for work, and for telling me in advance what time you would be releasing it so I could plan around that! Of course, I still had to write the actual post, but I can do that anywhere. Oh, and thank you Dhawans for giving us such fun songs! Twice!
There was a comment on last week’s post, by Asmita I think, about liking it when men are surrounded by strong women. Which sent me down this whole rabbit hole in a direction I don’t think she anticipated, and I have come out the other side with a simple plot in mind that can be applied to any hero. I am excited!
Well, this is FASCINATING! It didn’t hit me until I watched the Chef trailer and then the new Judwaa 2 song right next to each other, but they are both remakes! In ways that couldn’t be more different. A sign that the industry doesn’t know if it should look back, or look out for the new hit.
