Bend it Like Beckham

Okey Dokey. It looks like EZArchive is alive again. Phew.

I'm not a huge sports fan, but I do appreciate soccer. It's way more interesting than American football in my opinion. My husband's a soccer player. I tried playing soccer and boy was my husband enthused. He took me out and bought me a new pair of boots/cleats, shin guards, shorts and then had me pose to take a pic like you would with your trophy child (I'm not kidding), but Jesus, I sucked. Where was I going with this? Oh yes, unless you've been living in a cave the World Cup is going on right now.

Now, I don't exactly have a World Cup music theme going, but related to it is one of my favorite movies of all time (sans mushy ending) Bend it Like Beckham which came out in 2002. I swear the lead character's family are all dopplegangers of my own family. The soundtrack is fantastic and one of those CDs that constantly is playing at home. Great workout music. Below is a sampling from Scottish pop group Texas and Bangra singer Bina Mistry.

Listen to:
"Inner Smile" (by Texas)
"Hot Hot Hot" (by Bina Mistry)

You'd love it especially since you've been around Asian families before. Sure, the stereotypes are over the top, but it's the grain of truth that makes it hilarious. The gals are great to look at too: Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightly
