The Return of The Currency Lad!

“People Of The Blogoppines, I Have Returned”


Finally. After signing off for 2008 on December 15th, leading to a definitely less-interesting Interwebs for the past 6 weeks or so,  he’s back. And with his batteries fully recharged, his latest posts are definitely worth a read.


Slumdog Millionaire

Watch it.

It’s beautifully scripted, with brilliant acting, awesome scene shots plus it offers great insight into the past 30 years or so of changes that India has gone through.

It’s Bollywood meets Hollywood… on Hollywood’s terms, at least this time round.

The plot centres  on a Muslim Indian man, who grew up in the slums, who appears on India’s version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Through a series of flashbacks, we learn how the contestant knows the answers to all of the questions.

Of course, there’s the typical Leftist Hollywood bullshit factor but surely we’ve all learned to deal with that… and thus, it is a really really good movie.

PS Apparently the thing is up for an Academy Award. And so it should be.


Slumdog Millionaire has won seven BAFTA awards, including Best Film.

Holy Fucking Shit, Batman!

Via Big Hollywood – a conservative Hollywood blog (Whoda thunk?) – comes this spectacularly brilliant techno dance remix of Christian Bale’s Terminator set meltdown by some super-hyper-mega-genius who calls himself/herself/itself RevoLucian.

I was in convulsions of laughter, and since I was in a series of rock bands, I really don’t think this is a big deal. Happens all the time.
