Last night the Bollywood feature was like West Side Story, E.T., and Forrest Gump rolled into one. It was called Something Something Something (dang slow Internet connection . . . wait . . . Kol Mi Gaya! How *could* I forget?) -- anyway. It had our favourite hero in it, Hrithik Roshan, whose eyes are ridiculously beautiful, but what I really loved was that most of the exterior shots were filmed in Banff and Canmore, Alberta. My old stomping grounds! It was a little confusing when the background would change from Canada to Nainital, India (thanks, IMDB) in a single scene, but entertaining. Hello again, Three Sisters mountain! Hello, Silvertip Golf Course, betch've never had Bollywood choreography on your ninth fairway before or since. Oh, and while it's not related to location, I can also say I've never before seen a high-speed getaway that involved a bunch of kids on scooters, feet slapping away at the pavement.
It may be a sign of progress: Himself addresses us now as "You teachers" when he conducts the evening class. Of course, he then goes on to call some of us idiots and dumbfux, but teachers nonetheless. I'm finding it still a bit hard to envision myself delivering all 26 postures in 90 minutes to people who'll actually follow along. Perhaps this is a good sign of modesty, something I could definitely use.
Quick shout out to Juliana and Cira: you make the Internet even more fun, if that's possible. Great to meet you both.
