The Uncut-est kind of all

You know the expression If you can't beat 'em, join 'em?

Well, since I don't have an earthly chance of beating Amit Varma in this Indibloggies thing, I figured I'd be proactive [1] and go over to the da...errr...Uncut side.

Besides, how can you say no to someone who actually invites you to pontificate about your favourite books / movies / music? (though, alas! without footnotes)

So, go check out the new and (hopefully) improved India Uncut site [2].

[1] It's been sssoooo long since I used that word. *sniff* Sometimes I miss consulting.

[2] aka The Coven of Incestuous Bloggers

Hecate:
O well done! I commend your pains;
And every one shall share i’ the gains;
And now about the cauldron sing,
Live elves and fairies in a ring,
Enchanting all that you put in.

Congratulations on the new role. But "Life is too short to write negative things about stuff we don’t like, and there’ll be none of that here. Only the most joyous, uplifting, enlightening, thought-provoking, sexy works of art will be written about here".
How will you fight the urge?

MT: I know, I know. I struggled a lot with that one. Still, there's always Momus.

And thanks.

Neela said...

Hmm. Much as I love you Falstaff (and I do I really do) I wish Amit had asked a few more accessible bloggers to write on the reviews stuff. I have a feeling that I am going to get an overdose of Sartre, Kafka, some unknown Israeli author and a few suicidal Eastern European filmmakers in there.

MT, N!: heh, on both your comments. spot on.

There should be an award for the most insightful commenters on the 'blogosphere' - one for an active blogger who comments and another who does not even blog so as to not compromise his/her integrity while commenting. And - there is no place I would rather make this heard, than in comment space. I am a true fan.

Thanks Falstaff! I'm looking forward to this immensely.

n!, I love the bunch of people on that contributors' list, but it will expand. Any suggestions?

Falstaff: Yeah man, I am with MT. What are you going to write about?

Btw, Bill says there's some new Hugh Grant movie that he's seeing posters of on his train ride - now that you are going to do happy stuff and all, maybe you should start reviewing that?

Neela: Another true fan! Do you know I actually go looking for blogs where you comment?

Tabula Rasa said...

yeah, count me in as an n! fan as well. that's three votes already for the indicommies.

ps. i believe the hugh grant movie is called 'music and lyrics'. i'm sure falstaff could find something to work with in that. (i know, i know, i only looked it up so i could joke about it in class on v-day. sellout. :-|)

Falstaff said...

neela: I think you wrong the other contributors on the site. They're not all psycho freaks you know. And besides, why would I write about Sartre and Kafka when I can review obscure East European poetry?

Tell you what - you pick what you want me to review. Buster Keaton? Wuthering Heights? Shostakovich?

BM: Agree. Actually, now that I come to think of it, I'm assuming Amit's rules only apply to the main post. Presumably I can do want I want in the comments space. *rubs hands in sadistic anticipation

AV: You're welcome

Veena: Huh? What are you talking about? Look, I have to be positive about whatever I'm reviewing. That doesn't mean it has to be happy / cheerful. I could rave for hours about super depressing German films. Actually Music and Lyrics (I saw the review in the NY Times) is precisely the kind of thing I can't blog about under Amit's rules - it's precisely the kind of thing I would have trashed, but can't on Rave Out.

Also, Veena and TR: What's with the chauvinism? I vote we call it the new Drew Barrymore film.

make up said...

What makes an ingredient natural? More and more leading make-up companies are responding to the demands of today's educated market and offering their customers make-up containing natural and organic ingredients. Women - and more and more men - are realizing the benefits of leaving behind the man-made ingredients used in cheaper cosmetics and looking for the quality and results that come from natural make up. Cosmetics that have been made using quality ingredients - natural products close to the original state, and, whenever possible, organic certified.

veena, bm, tr: thankye one and all!

amit: no suggestions yet (unless you can get bitchphd) but keep it going! shall definitely check it out.

n!
