I’m pretty proud of imparting my love of Bollywood movies to the little girl. She’s picked up some great dance moves and is pretty good at it. You should have seen her “Indian Pat-a-cake” dance routine. It was even 6 minutes long. Righteous.
The other day, while cleaning I had the Music Choice channels on. Since the R&B channel annoys Adrian (“old Black lady music” to him and he’s clamoring for a soul/funk channel) and the reggae channel was playing soca, which annoys me after a few, don’t even get me started on utter crap they were playing on the salsa channel, we went to the retro-active channel. This like the Richard Blade wetdream of music; Haircut 100, The Divinyls, The Cure, Kate Bush, etc…The one thing about this channel is that you get to hear the new wave music, radio stations may not have played back in the day.
Did you know that Bananarama had a song called Robert DeNiro’s Waiting? I didn’t it and it’s not a bad song, it’s just strange that a band, that is basically a cover band (IMO), wrote a song entitled that. Anyway, this song is playing and Ilia points out that they look like Jem, which killed me. Then she starts talking (as usual) and then says, “You know what mama? I think I like the Go-Gos better than Bananarama.” That’s my girl. The Go-Gos are better than Bananarama. Then she proceeded to sing Vacation. Complete with Bollywood dance moves.
