News Round-Up: Kangana Loses a Movie, PC Gains an Ad Campaign, Ajay and Varun Get New Images

Have I mentioned before how HORRIBLE the Indian press is?  It’s HORRIBLE!!!!!  And now I have to do an Priyanka story AGAIN just because I seem to be the only one doing the 10 seconds of research required to present it accurately.  Why do you make me do this, Bollywoodhungama “reporters”??????? (and now you are thinking “why is Margaret complaining? it’s her own fault for reading BH.” And I know, you’re right.)

Silly Sunday: Couples We Want to See, Varun-Parineeti to Arjun-Anushka to Swara-Ajay to Varun-Bhumi to Alia-Ayushmann

These are really stories you wrote yourself.  Or at least started yourself, on the Wednesday post I had a wonderful time coming up with ideas based on the casts you wanted to see. These are those same ideas, just brushed up and expanded a little bit.

Silly Sunday: Hindi LM Montgomery, Shahrukh as a Dashing Mature Man Romancing Shy Old Maid Tabu

Okay, prepare yourself for a very very deep cut.  This is my absolute favorite LM Montgomery short story.  So, not an “Anne” book, and not one of her other lessor series either.  And not even from the first short story collection Chronicles of Avonlea, but aaaaallllll the way in Further Chronicles of Avonlea.  But it’s SO GOOD!!!! How can I resist I remake?  And it is just crying out for Shahrukh.

Silly Sunday: Happy Birthday Sanjay, Here is My Best Sanjay FanFic EVER

Sorry sorry sorry!  Yesterday just completely wiped me out (22 guests is too many guests, especially when one of them has severe dementia and 4 of them are small children).  So I literally have not left my bed all day, and every time I try to think straight and come up with a brilliant fanfic, it all just sort of floats away from me.  So I am doing a reprint and failing you, my faithful readers.  Oh well, at least it is a really good reprint, based on Daboo Ratnani photos and Sanjay Dutt and his dog.

TGIF 2: Additional Chocolate Heroes!!!! The Special Limited Edition High Demand Options

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).

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.

Sonam Wedding Epilogue! Start Your ‘Ships!

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.

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.

October Review (SPOILERS): A Love Story?

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.

TGIT for International Woman’s Day! Women Being Worshipped (lots of SRK)

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

Happy Birthday Yash and Roohi!!!!!

A happy post! To balance the serious one from earlier today.  And also because I looooooooooooove Yash and Roohi.  Most serious and concerned babies ever!

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.

Hindi Film 101: Virat Kohli, Shahrukh Khan, Upside Down Mortgages and Starpricing

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.

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.

Silly Sunday: Christmas Themed! Lights and Trees and Mistletoe and SRK

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.
