Outsourced

I seem to be coming across a lot of texts, references, and movies involving India lately. I don't know if that's a sign that I need to go on a trip or what, but I'm starting to become really curious about this culture that I don't know much about. The more I learn, the more curious I become.

Outsourced is the latest movie I've seen that takes place in India. It's a great independent comedy that highlights some of the sad, and sometimes humorous, realities of Western commerce as well as the quirky things that happen when one is in culture shock. If you've ever lived abroad for more than six months or have an appetite for cultural diversity, you'll really appreciate this film. Not to mention that the soundtrack is fantastic! :)

I've been seeing a lot of "Stop" signs lately. I'm wondering if I need to slow down? Or take a nap?

(lol -- sorry I couldn't resist)

The trailer looks good. I listen to Eric Hutchinson's album a lot. So even though I sometimes mock, I do also listen and enjoy your recommendations.

Oh, and you've got good taste, ie, we have chosen similar templates for our blogs. I was thinking of changing mine, but after seeing how lovely yours look, I'm leavin' it alone.
