(As usual, all caps is completely necessary)

Yes? Yes? Yes. Borders, here I come.

(Incidentally, for the past several weeks I have watched more Bollywood than I ever have before in my life. I *heart* Hrithik Roshan.)

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    Well, you’ve convinced me.

    Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghun it is (and Luck By Chance when it arrives in theaters)!

  2. SRK has a few irritating mannerisms, but he also has absolutely transcendent eyebrows. And yes, he dances up a storm (I’m thinkin'”Baadshah” here, but also the more ethnic stuff, in which he shines), also does his own stunts. To see him *WITH* Hrithik, and with Amitabh in elder statesman mode (but also kicking up his heels), check out “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum.” All-star cast, including Kajol and Jaya Bachchan. (Actually, check out any or all of Karan Johar’s first three movies with him.) He and Kajol are an amazing pairing, even in “Dilwale Dulhania le Jayenge” – the Switzerland segment is a little cringe-worthy but the Punjabi half is more than worth the price of admission. As for Aamir – you ain’t seen the best of him till you’ve seen “Lagaan.”

    “Amar Akbar Anthony” – um, I do love it and watch it frequently but I was also sort of kidding. It is a total goof. It was Amitabh’s big breakout hit (1977) and it is corny, cheesy, mawkish and marvelous. It has 25 minutes of exposition (I timed it) before the opening credits. And where else will you see a guy in a top hat make his entrance inside an Easter egg?

    Oh! Aamir Khan. Yes. I had forgotten. Have you seen Ghajini? It is most excellent.

  4. HappyGoth says:

    It is perhaps that I have not seen much Shah Rukh Khan, but so far his awesomeness is lost on me. I shall have to go rent one of his movies and see what the deal is (the question is this – how well does he dance?).
    I’ll add “Amar Akbar Anthony” to the list. Thanks!

  5. Yeah, well, you’re young yet. 😉 Some day your tastes will, ahem, mature, and you’ll grow into hearting Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan as I do. (Not to mention the great, great Dara Singh and Dev Anand.) “Amar Akbar Anthony” – now THAT’s a movie!

    Bollywood is a closed book to me, alas, but I agree, that looks like FUN!

    I blame you for the fact that I just read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhoom_2

    It makes my brain hurt. It really does.

  8. HappyGoth says:

    The only problem is that nobody carries it in-store, so I’ll have to wait a few days (it’s totally worth it, though).

  9. Now THAT looks like fun!

  10. that…is…AWESOME!

    I need that video!!!!
