Coming Attractions: Road, Movie

Your Projectionist is trying to restrain himself from seeing more masala movies at the multiplex due to a deadline for filing income tax returns, but do color me impressed by the images in this trailer for Dev Benegal's Road, Movie, which opened this week:

Studio 18, and August Entertainment.

Sadly, it didn't open on Long Island — the National Amusements multiplex near me chose Karthik Calling Karthik and Ashwani Dheer's comedy Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? instead. So Road, Movie is now on my DVD list. At least it's there.

[UPDATE 2010.07.11: Because of the blogging troubles we were having, we couldn't mention the fact that it is now on an all–region Studio 18 DVD! Go get it!]

A new home for the blog?

Due to ongoing issues I seem to be having with posting on Blogger, there is the serious possibility that I will re–locate the blog — and perhaps re–focus it a little — by the end of the month. Since I now have a dedicated website for Promenade Digital [Mediaworks], it might be better having the blog there and retooling it to reflect what goes on at my new venture.

So while I work out the logistics, here's a short item from the Geethanjali video release Natya Manjari - Bharata Natyam. This actually is a complete short dance, and you might end up sufficiently intrigued to buy the full DVD for the rest. Geethanjali has one of the best line–up of Indian classical dance videos in the industry, and judging from the sample here, they really know their stuff.

I'll try to have more to say in a few days, if not weeks.

Dealing with instability

Sorry for the sudden template change, everyone. There were apparently major changes to Blogger that I wasn't aware of - such as the sudden loss of the post dates.

Bear with me while I try to figure out what happened and what can be done.
