So I am going to the NYC premiere of Kites this weekend, and the private party afterwards! I have to admit that it took me about half an hour to find my steam iron, but I’ve even pressed my little black dress and I’m as ready for it as I’ll ever get. Ready or not, Roshans, here I come!
Of course fun things to do always glom themselves together, and I am also entertaining a dear friend visiting from Panama so I will be more absent on the blog front than usual. I hate to leave without giving you something to look at, and Tamilian Renaissance Man Wilbur Sargunaraj cannot be beat for entertainment value (and thank you to Ed for finding him and then kindly cluing me in).
Check out Wilbur’s vocal chanting and how-to videos, and marvel at his particular brand of enthusiastic marketing. Really, you won’t regret it. I’ll get you kick-started with “First Class Meat (Chicken 65)” (my other favorites are “Cobra Cobra” and “Blog Song” although his most popular—Roger Ebert even tweeted about it—is “Love Marriage.” Or as the artist himself calls it: “The cry of Wilbur’s heart.”):
