Bollywoodbloggers. Now we´re getting somewhere.

Don´t think that only because the last update concerning the First Pan-European/International Bollywoodbloggers Meeting in Vienna is from a week ago, there was no planning work going on behind the scenes.

So here is the first draft of the schedule for Saturday March 10th 2007.

First rule of the 1st PEIBBM. It´s all about having fun. So timetables are approximate values only!

Since some of you will arrive in Vienna on Saturday morning I will have an open house with lots of coffee for those poor red-eye-flight gals like Maini and whoever wants to join. Around noon the idea is to grab some lunch and since it´s so nice there we´ll head to the Naschmarkt.

At 14.00 we´ll get into serious business and meet to watch Bommarillo. The place we´ll be doing that has WLAN so expect some heavy live-blogging.

Next point on the agenda is 18.00 where we´ll meet (at an until now undisclosed) Indian restaurant and at 20.00 we´ll have some cool stuff coming up (again undisclosed as of now *wavesatmarco*)

So hang in there. It is only a few days until I will be able to come up with more details.

PS: Participants get in shape. There might be press coverage too....

Update 02/12/2007: Oh I almost forgot. I even went so far as to fill my spare iPod (yes I have more then one) with a background score for the 10th. If you have any suggestions on songs that I missed out, fire away. Here is what´s on the playlist so far.

Fan-freaking-tastic! Big smooches to Babasko and Marco for doing so much legwork!

Now tell me this: will there be live translating, like at the UN, for those of us who cannot catch all the excellent jokes and silliness that will occur in German? Am I the only one who will fall into that category?

babasko said...

tsts. see, instead of learning Devanagari you might have refreshed your school german...tsts

platzhirsch said...

i see no problem with that, beth. we will paint subtitle-signs and dance arround babasko if she dares to make german jokes ;-)

babasko said...

moi? never.

but the dancing with signs sounds intriguing. especially if i staff you all with dresses from the bollywoodfugly closet...

The playlist is fantastic! omg though, what's this about the press? *hides* I'm shy!

Don't worry Beth, my German isn't exactly first class either. We can pass each other notes in Devanagari during any German silliness that might occur. I can only do consonants so far, but hey, think of it as a special challenge! ;)

Some of us will need a german translation and some an english one - so I think we`ll complement each other. Thanks to all of you for this idea! Its great.

is this blog about your english skills or bollywood?

Hi, hello anonymous commentator!

This blog obviously - I hope - is about Bollywood. The reason I started it writing in English and not German (my mother tongue) is the one stated above on your right-hand side in my blogger-profile.

Ab Khuch? ;-)

Subtitles! What a great idea! We could use one of these really handy translatingthingies like babelfish and then it'd be just like watching a movie!

(Für die nicht-englischen Lautsprecher unter uns: Untertitel! Eine was für große Idee! Wir könnten eins dieser wirklich handlichen translatingthingies wie babelfish benutzen und dann ist it'd wie das Aufpassen eines Films gerecht!)

You know already - we would have one totally send translation and correctly which for laughter!
That would be nevertheless rather practical! Then only someone must paint the translations on in such a way notes - global communication in Nullkommanix!
Hmpf. Bloed only that we will probably then have no notion, which the others say... Perhaps we need another plan nevertheless...

A bit cheesy but a couple of more songs for your iPod:

Salaam Namaste - Kunal Ganjawala, Vasundhara Das
My Dil Goes Mmmm - Shaan, Gayatri Iyer
