QB is still processing last night. You see, last night we experienced on the big screen our first full-blown, three-hour Bollywood movie, complete with songs, catcalls from the audience, broad slapstick, killer funk music, an intermission, and a kick-ass dance routine led by Aishwarya Rai, who Roger Ebert has called “the most beautiful woman in the world.” (The jury’s still out, as far as QB is concerned, but there’s no question she’s in the top five.) We’ll have more to say once we’ve properly re-aligned what we think movies can do, and we’ve picked our jaws up from the floor. It was awesome.
Until we return, spend your weekend mulling over Terry Teachout’s long essay on blogging and what it means for our culture.
