For those interested in sights and sounds eastern, I recommend the movie and soundtrack, The Darjeeling Limited. On the Fox searchlight website, you can see the behind the scenes filming of the movie. Day 8: A walking tour of the train’s interior (the train is called, The Darjeeling LTD.) is a three-minute delight to all who appreciate the handmade. In the actual movie, the visual feast of teals and blues and artisans’ work is more apparent; nevertheless, the video clip will give you an idea. As I watched the movie, I couldn’t help but chuckle and think that all the dining car needed was some vibrant BLENKO decanters! If the link I paste below doesn’t work, just google the name of the movie and go to the official website. Add Wes Anderson’s movie and soundtrack to your holiday experience. Feliz navidad…….

Whats up with the Indian music
is Eon Indian?
Eon is not an Indian name.
What gives
Hillary you don't look like a geek.

Hillary J Homburg said...

Having an appreciation for classical music is a good thing.
Try listening - this is where one opens the ears and closes the mouth.
Eon is of English decent. Any other non Blenko questions?
Geek is a mind set - I think - not a look!

you are wrong!
The definition of geek
The definition of geek has changed considerably over time, and there is no longer any consistent modern definite meaning, but here are some posible definitions:

A person who is interested in technology, especially computing and new media. Most geeks are adept with computers, and treat the term hacker as a term of respect, but not all are hackers themselves.
A person who relates academic subjects to the real world outside of academic studies; for example, using multivariate calculus to determine how they should correctly optimize the dimensions of a pan to bake a cake.
A person who has chosen concentration rather than conformity; one who pursues skill (especially technical skill) and imagination, not mainstream social acceptance.
A person with a devotion to something in a way that places him or her outside the mainstream. This could be due to the intensity, depth, or subject of their interest. This definition is very broad but because many of these interests have mainstream endorsement and acceptance, the inclusion of some genres as "geeky" is heavily debated. Persons have been labelled as or chosen to identify as mathematics geeks, engineering geeks, sci-fi geeks, computer geeks, various science geeks, movie and film geeks (cinephile), comic book geeks, theatre geeks, history geeks, gamer geeks, music geeks, art geeks, and literature geeks.
A performer at a carnival who swallows various live animals and bugs.

Hi Hillary,
you are into classical music too.
you have multi-dimensional peronalty you keep surprising me.

lately I have observed in many hollywood movies they have started playing classical or indian music in background...

I listen to all kind of music good music and songs and sometime its hard for me to follow english songs because of accent and style but I am getting better day by day haha lol :)

good and soothing music has no boundaries like colorful Blenko just brings joy , happiness and beauty in life

Once again I agree with you
a number of films are using Indian music, most especially the whats its called not a guitar but makes a different sound with the drums
Indian music is soothing to the soul. Read a study in the NY Times Sept I think that said Indian Music was most universally accepted as background noise.
Country Music is a great way to learn English or so I have been told by international students.
Interesting Hillary. I must now listen to this music. After I buy Blenko.
