    Om Puri (1950-2017)

    Sad news. Have watched him in both The Hundred Foot Journey and City of Joy. A natural actor, I always felt.

    Favorite game

    At the moment, it is Dota 2 (Defense of the Ancients). Day in and day out, you'll find me taking up my virtual position on the southwest corner of the map (I'm a part of the sentinel team generally). It does take time and patience and effort to level up, but once you do, there's no looking back and the gold earned in the process will only spur you on My little son has been eagerly watching me blasting enemies out of the way and seems to be very excited to try his hand at it. However, I told him this game is for big people only and introduced to him these math games (poor chap got tricked!), saying this is the starting point which leads up to the shooting game he wants to play. Well, one fine day he'll realize I was fooling him, but till then I can play my Dota in peace while he's happily crunching up numbers and maths (evil me)!
  3. The Exorcist, definitely. But a close second would be Nosferatu for me, dating way back almost a 100 years to the year 1922. Mysterious and haunting, this one is remembered as 'the birth of horror cinema'.

    Jerry Lewis

    The Nutty Professor is a classic. Try watching The Geisha Boy - the story of a magician who is not really a magician in the true sense of the word and an orphan; or It's Only Money - a comedy plus detective tale or even the extremely popular Rock-A-Bye-Baby - about infant triplets.

    Top Ten Films of...

    I have unfortunately watched very few movies of the 30's and 40's. Just a few of them which I remember are: The Wizard of Oz (1939) - Dorothy Gale's tale of being swept away to a magical land. Gone with the Wind (1939) - The classic. Loved the book as well as the movie. Bringing up Baby (1938) - The 'baby' in the story is ironically the pet leopard. The Blue Angel (1930) - About an elderly professor's life which whirls out of control.
  6. Hubby dearest adores salmon. And hence, to make his Valentine's Day special, I cooked him his favorite grilled salmon with habanero lime butter. And yes, we spent it playing childish Valentine games with our daughter, armed with lots of crayons, ribbon and glitter. And tried teaching her the alphabet as well with learning games like these. She starts school soon and hence the above. Family love all around!

    What Are You Watching Now?

    Just finished watching Mad Max: Fury Road. What a portrayal of an apocalyptic world, where every drop of water is controlled by a tyrant!

    Favorite Comedic Quotes in Old Films

    The Blues Brothers: Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a tank full of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Jake: Hit it. Frozen: Olaf: Hi everyone. I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs! Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Ace Ventura: If I'm not back in five minutes... just wait longer.

    You're Sick. Which Movie Do You Want?

    Harold and Maude. A romantic comedy classic that talks about what it means to be truly alive. Or something like So I Married An Axe Murderer. Another romantic comedy which makes for a perfect 'sick-in-bed-and-can't-get-up' movie. Would love to watch pet movies or animal movies or play simple pet games like these too. I remember a couple of months ago I was down with the flu for 5 days at a stretch and re-watched classics like Beethoven, Babe (love the story; this pig is adorable) and Lady and the Tramp (have loved this one from as far back as I can remember, cocker spaniels and all). Pets always make you feel good, ill or otherwise
  10. As a kid, I distinctly remember attending midnight mass in church on Christmas eve every year. My younger brother would mostly sleep through the entire service (till he was about 10 years old). And when we got home long past midnight, we didn't go directly to beds - this was my favorite part, the part that I enjoyed the most - piping hot cups of cocoa and Christmas presents followed. True Yuletide spirit!

    Favorite Christmas decoration...

    My personal favorite is a greeting card ladder we put up every year at our place during Christmas and New Year. Using clothes pins attached to a string, we hang up the cards received over the year (which, thankfully, are still a good number inspite of the fact that the world is going e-carding!).

    Favorite Line from Movie

    It has to be this conversation from last year's Penguins of Madagascar movie... Just hilarious! Private, having just hatched from an egg, wonders if the three penguins in front of him are his family. While the penguins confer for a moment to come up with something good to say, Kowalski gets all awkward and says something dumb in the moment. Private: "Are you my family?" Kowalski: "You don't have a family and we're all gonna die." Private: "What?" Skipper: "What's the matter with you Kowalski?"
