nick hornby, donnie darko, and kuch kuch hota hai

Okay, for the benefit of those who wish to know more about the subjects in the subject line.

"Songbook" is a book by Nick Hornby, published by <aMcSweeney's Books - small publisher based in San Fransisco. It basically has a bunch of songs that Hornby likes and why, and a little personal hsitory. Some may call it self-indulgent, but...ahm.... so? It's a great book thusfar. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai ; considered one of the best Bollywood flics in 1998, this is about a guy who was best friends with a girl (who was crazy about him) but who ended up marrying someone else, who died upon giving birth to their only child, who is told in a series of letters written before her mother's death that she is to get her father together with his best firend at any cost. I will see Donnie Darko again. And again and again until I get it. More to come.
