Well someone is not taking the loss well.  My take on this game was both side’s gave it all.  Hope Solo has been around long enough to know no one is gonna play your game.  The Swedes did what I’ve seen Germany, Iceland, do in the Euro Cup, come with a strategy and not deviating from it.  Hey leaving it to penalty kicks is a coin toss anyway, and I’ve seen it happen and everyone that follows football has seen it happen.

Solo might think Sweden is not gonna make it far in the tournament, but excuse me ‘hello’ did Sweden not just take out the reigning Olympic champions.

Sweden To Pakistan ‘Where Is Home’ and ‘Spoon Me’ By Elliphant

Ellinor Miranda Salome Olovsdotter stage name Elliphant was born in one of my favorite cities Stockholm, Sweden.  Recently Elliphant shot two videos in Pakistan, where I was born and where my uncle Pakistani singer Saleem Raza had indoctrinated me into the world of music when I was growing a boy.

Here are the two videos of Elliphant shot in Pakistan, you will note in the guitarist in ‘Where Is Home’ wears a ‘kameez’ (long shirt usually worn traditionally in Pakistan with salwar), and jeans, this my friends is very much in vogue.

In the video ‘Spoon Me’, there is a sweet tabla, with electronic beats that are very popular in Pakistan underground music scene especially in the city of Karachi.

I have also included some tracks in a play list for you to enjoy recorded in the late 60’s by my uncle.  Hope you enjoy the play list I grew up with lot of uncles playing tabla and some of these arrangements can be mixed into with music from new young alternative bands.

Be like Elliphant and venture out and explore the world of music.
