The law of averages

It’s just a fact. When you make something like 800 over 1,000 movies a year, they’re not all going to be classics. And when you make music videos from the songs in some of those movies, some of them are going to be so laughably bad that they’ll provide untold oodles of entertainment (“untold oodles”? Is that even a quantifiable amount?). Thanks to Matthew Rebecca from, whose husband, Matthew, provided me with the delightfully random NaBloPoMo badge you see at top of the sidebar now, I just grooved to Ganpat. As Matthew Rebecca put it,

It’s nice to know we’re not the only country embracing stupidity.

edited to fix the entry based on new information (see Rebecca’s comment below).


  1. Matt designed the badge, I posted the link to Ganpat. Without Bollywood, our lives would be boring.

  3. Ha! You’re welcome. Here’s a clarifcation for the clarification: Matt and I are friends who live across the country from one another, not spouses.

  4. dammit! I’m usually pretty good about not making assumptions, and this is why. Thank you for being so understanding, Rebecca and Matt. A link to your blog in my blogroll (mmmmm, rolls!) is forthcoming (not that I have any readers to send you, but it’s all I can offer at the moment).
