There was a time when cheap eye liner and weird lip stick colours were my very best friends. Thankfully, everybody’s phone hadn’t turned into a mini-photo studio yet so you’ll just have to take my word for it. HOWEVER – this past week had me walking down memory lane in eye liner and black miniskirts. This Music Monday goes out to the screamo kid in all of us.Continue reading For The Screamo Kid In You

In this day and age, some people are still asking silly questions about whether or not other people are real nerds. I know, it’s absurd, but that’s the world we live in.
The good news is that there are other people who are just minding their business and letting their flags fly high. People like Rihanna, our Queen who refuses to release new music. People like Sampa The Great.Continue reading Sampa The Great – Final Form
The first Bollywood movie I watched on Netflix was Baahubali, and it was a wild ride. If you love hyper-dramatic movies with beautiful sets, great music, and plot lines and special effects that are AMAZING but show that the movie takes you seriously neither as a concept, nor as a person? Watch both Baahubali movies and thank me when you pick yourself up off the ground.
Now, for those of you who prefer your entertainment to take you seriously as a person, a concept, or both – Solo may be more your speed. Led by sometimes charming, sometimes frightening Dulquer Salmaan, Solo is a beautiful journey in four parts, exploring themes of love and loss.Continue reading Solo (not that one) isn’t a movie, it’s an experience
