The fantastic Diana from Aziza's picks gave me this award. It's nice and fun and I even get to bitch about people. A bit :P Hurrah!
1) Tell something that no one knows about me- I actually had to take help from my best friend for this. Her first suggestion was obviously to tell everyone I have the awesomest best friend in existence, but I'll use the other one: I have a fetish for red lipstick. I guess it comes from films, especially those set before 60s, where the women always wear red lipstick and they just seem to glow. I think it is endlessly classy and cool and the people who think it is trampy, well I feel sorry for their closed minds and dead souls.
2) Link to one of my posts that I personally think best fits the following categories: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful Piece, Most Popular Piece, Most Controversial Piece, Most Surprisingly Successful Piece, Most Underrated Piece, and Most Pride-Worthy Piece.
*I can't decide on just one for many of them. I am indecisive too, but you already knew that.
Most Beautiful Piece- Firstly Marie Antoinette vs A Single Man as it compares the two most beautiful films that I have seen. Secondly this one because like duh (Stevee would be happy).
Most Helpful Piece- Ha why would people come to this blog for help? I don't think I have written anything remotely helpful to anyone, but maybe if by chance film makers come across this post, they will hopefully stop killing kids in films.
Most Popular Piece- Well the one with the most page views has nothing to do with films at all and the views are only on the basis of the pictures. The next one is also because of the pictures but it has film value- my favourite stars in black and white. The post with the most comments is the one on the posters of 2011.
Most Controversial Piece- I think it will have to be my thoughts on morality and films.
Most Surprisingly Successful Piece- Films that made me which I posted during my 18th birthday celebrations. It is a predecessor to my 100 Favourite Films somewhat, but what amazes me about it is that it has no pictures. So I suppose I must have done something right :)
Most Underrated Piece- I guess this is the prime example of my sense of humour totally missing its mark, but I really thought my post about band names made from films was going to become viral or something.
Most Pride-Worthy Piece- I have three. First is my goodbye letter to Harry Potter which is really close to my heart. Then my comparison of Holocaust Horrors- Schindler's List and The Pianist, that people actually read. Finally what I think is the best review that I have written, There Will Be Blood.

Awesome post and thank for the mention! I love red lipstick too, I always use it and I took a lot of heat from the teachers for doing so back in high school :)ReplyDelete
You are welcome.Delete
Haha we were totally forbidden from using makeup in school, but this one time I did wear it for an event, and I got congratulated by a few of my teachers and peers for being so "bold". It was hilarious.
Thanks for the tagging, Nikhat!ReplyDelete
Gonna be a tricky one with my lack of posts, I guess, but I'll definitely give it a shot!
And red lipstick is great. Definitely couldn't pull it off (far too pale), but I still love it anyway!
You are welcome.Delete
