It was Tabu’s birthday yesterday, so happy birthday!

The web was flooded with wishing-well graphics and trivia posts of some of the same-old same-old trivia bits. The best one was Jitesh Pillai [1][2] who shared some photos of the new issue of Filmfare Magazine– Tabu has a couple of pages in a shoot by Vivek Bhatia [Facebook], there doesn’t seem to be an interview, just a photoshoot of four shots with short texts.

— May 8th, 2016 edit —

I don’t know why I was under the impression that Vivek Bhatia was in charge of the photoshoot. Correction: these photos were by Abhay Singh.

She gets up with the morning’s prayer on her lips… and the night’s pleasure in her eyes.

Is that suggestive or is that suggestive?

And the cherry on top? The Filmfare issue also includes a short 10-trivia article on Vidya Balan with photos by Rohan Shrestha [used here][and here]. However, it doesn’t seem to be connected to this mysterious photoshoot that I loved so much. My favorite bit about that?

If there are no subtitles in an English film, then I don’t enjoy watching it. The actors speak so softly that I can’t understand the dialogue. I hate to miss even a single word.

There’s so many mumblers, nowadays. I do watch everything with subtitles— English, Spanish, French, Portuguese… in that order, and if there’s none available in those, I’ll try to wing it in Chinese.

 

We haven’t seen Yu Aoi fanart in quite some time, and I ended up seeing this doing the rounds on Twitter~

You know these eyes, you know those freckles~

It’s lovely captured by laistakanashi on Instagram.

My limit for sap is through the roof, as I got all warm and fuzzy when I found this song Rene Liu recorded with mah gurls Zhou Xun, Kwai Lun Mei and Tang Wei (whom I’ve just recently warmed up). They’re all super cute and super dork and super sappy together. I love it.

The song is called Wish You Well (我要你好好的), a single of Rene’s latest album of the same name, but it’s one of the last songs to get a video. The song Murmur of the Hearts (念念) [MV] is also on this album. I thought maybe it was for a movie, but doesn’t seem likely.

Happy listening~ DORK AWAY!

I’m enjoying all these liquor short films [1] that are coming up. I don’t even drink. This time around Indian actresses Konkona Sen Sharma and Tillotama Shome are two neighbor friends despite their seemingly different personalities for a short sponsored by Seagram’s Royal Stag.

Directed by Jaydeep Sarkar, the short seems to come as… sort of a clash with the image of a whisky brand. But I’ll take it.

The struggle of concealing one’s self.

Really hard-hitting ending.

7 years — SEVEN FREAKING YEARS! — after starring on Yuki Tanada’s One Million Yen Girl, Yu Aoi is finally going to star in a new movie as a lead. The lucky production? An live-action adaptation of Yamauchi Mariko’s (山内 マリコ) book AZUMI HARUKO wa Yukuefumei (アズミ・ハルコは行方不明), which translates to Azumi Haruko Is Missing, which will be directed (and most likely adapted) by Daigo Matsui (松居大悟).

My Japanese is going to the gutter. lol

BUT! The internet (meaning me) is all excited about it! Actually, I see a lot of tweets on it, but I’m too lazy to read or google-translate them, so I will just pretend we’re all excited about this.

YesAsia has an “English title,” and lists it as Lonely Girl Has Gone.

I don’t know what the book is about, if you do- tell me. Other essential info? Apparently it started shooting in mid-September, and it’s set for a 2016 release.
