Thoughts on telugu Premam's trailer and music?

Catherine, the egotistical Malayali, adherent Nivin Pauly fan, and extremely (almost aggressively) anti-remake’er, replies as such:
HOW DARE THEY??! The movie looks horrific, I can’t even fathom why they would remake a cult blockbuster like Premam. And how dare they replace the charm bomb that is Mr. Nivin Pauly and our (also natural-actor) Malar Miss Pallavi with two leads that have significant trouble moving their facial features/delivering dialogues? The trailer looks like a cheap, oversaturated knockoff of the real Premam. As for the music, they’ve kept 4 of Rajesh’s original songs (Pathivaayi Njaan, Kaalam Keethu Poyi, Chinna Chinna, Malare) and Gopi Sunder has added 3 more. I’ve seen Evare (Malare) and my first thought was ‘how dare Vijay Yesudas betray us like this’. My second thought after listening to the whole album was the same as the first, except in regards to Gopi (Gopichetta, whhhyyy?). Where does a song like Bang Bang fit into the original? And no Scene Contra- can’t handle too much rejection ha? I hate how they’ve mass-ified/glamorised the film beyond the recognition of what made it so unique and beautiful. Needless to say, I won’t be watching it and I don’t want to see it on my dash.

Catherine, the sensible movie-lover, wanna-be optimist, and person that doesn’t want a barrage of angry fans in her inbox, replies like this: 
Although I don’t understand why it has to be remade (given it pan-South fanbase), I understand why the remake is being altered to suit the commercial sensibilities of its new audience. I know this will be a completely different film, not just because of the new components, but because us Malayalis didn’t know much about the original film or about the heroines when we saw it. That isnt the case with this film- they don’t have the element of surprise (and they also have the unavoidable element of comparison)- which is unfortunate for them.  You can tell that Karthik has tried to imitate Anand’s cinematography whilst also keeping it safely traditional and I appreciate the effort (although it looks odd to me *in comparison* to be honest). I do still like Chay and I’ve been warming up to him more, but given his style of acting I’m kind of concerned about how he’ll pull off George. Shruti was good in Moonu, so I hope she matches up to that in her part. It’s really nice to see Anupama and Madonna- although different- and to have Rajesh’s music. If we completely ignore the original’s feel/existence Gopi Sunder’s music is actually really fun for a typical masala entertainer. Maybe it’s just because I’ve heard Rockaankuthu so much at every Malayali event ever and I’m glad they changed it- but Evadu Evadu has me bopping in my seat on replay. Nonetheless, I won’t be watching it and I’d rather not see it on my dash.

I came out as bi really recently to my parents 2 days ago. I've liked this girl for awhile & she told me today that she really liked me. I told her I did too. Anyway, I came home and told my mom & she's not very comfortable with my sexuality & is really overwhelmed with it all. It rly hurts to not feel ok w/ telling my parents my feelings for a girl, I want to be excited and happy about this new relationship & in my household is comfortable with it. Idk what to do.


Im really sorry about your situation, no one should have to face this backlash from their own family. In that situation I can only advice you to remain calm and see how it plays out. Parents can be really stubborn and react badly to something thats “strange” or new to them. 

This is gonna sound hard but try not to be too obvious about the relationship around your parents. Maybe tell them some small info and cute stories to give them time to settle with this new situation. To make it all seem normal and casual to them (of course it already is normal but im talking about your parents point of view) 

I can only hope that they will come to their senses sooner or later and see that this makes you really happy. Things like that can take time, especially with older people. I hope that everything plays out well for you <3

And good luck with the new relationship of course, im very happy for you.

All the best!

!! Here’s a reminder that Eat Jin live on V app is just a few days away!!

Eat Jin live airs on June 11 (KST)! There is no known time of when it will start at the moment (presumably at 12AM KST but that’s not confirmed anywhere, it may air at a random time). For those confused about V app having paid videos there has been no announcement of Eat Jin being on Vlive + so it is highly likely that it is free!

Now here’s your important reminders for the show:

  • Do NOT ask for other members (This is Jin’s show, asking for others when he’s on is very disrespectful!)
  • If Jin does have a member or multiple members on the show please give all the members the same amount of love and attention! 
  • Give lots of hearts
  • Compliment Jin as much as possible, tell him you love Eat Jin and you’re glad he’s doing it back on the V app
  • No rude or sexual comments please

Never commented during an Eat Jin live before or any other live before? Also have you never not tuned into an Eat Jin live before? Here’s why you should consider doing it and making this day important for Jin: 

So in short we are very lucky and should be very grateful that Jin is doing an Eat Jin on the V app again! I know time zones make it hard to watch live streams but if you can, please make this Eat Jin very special for Jin! This is our opportunity to let him know we really love and appreciate him! :’)

Also it would be great if anyone reading this has a large following on twitter and can help spread this! Thank you~

“Like father like son”

Yesterday I made this tweet after reading that for s4 Derek is going to have a job and its suppose to be a big spoiler(?). 

So what if the Sheriff, after seen Derek with his old deputy jacket, tells him “It looks better on you, son” and it triggers a memory of when Derek’s dad told him the exact same thing when he was wearing his leather jacket? What. if.
