lowell: The romantic thing is to have dinner and a dance on New Year's Eve and then watch the fireworks. I've been a musician for that. Dec 31, 2022 15:37:26 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: My wife and I don't need a special occasion or holiday to dance. It's great, with smart phones, to be able to spontaneously play a nice slow song and lead my bride around the living room "dance floor". Jan 1, 2023 5:42:02 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: lowell, did you have any gigs over the recent holidays? Jan 4, 2023 6:44:13 GMT -6
lowell: Yes, the flute player and I on piano played Piazzolla Tangos for a benefit concert. We played well enough to get tips in the tip jar. My favorite tangos by him are Vuelvo Al Sur and Libertango. Jan 4, 2023 13:35:08 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: I'm familiar with the tango style of dance but I'm not well-versed (or versed at all) with the who's who of Tango music or any songs in particular. But I might look for those two on YouTube. Jan 4, 2023 15:56:30 GMT -6
lowell: Piazzolla wrote many adaptations for different musical groups. Our music for Vuelvo Al Sur is closest to this one: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxHE4JH6Tmk Jan 5, 2023 2:00:51 GMT -6
lowell: For Libertango, nobody plays the arrangement we have. Many play it too fast. It should be possible to dance to it. Here's an arrangement with dancers. www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdhTodxH7Gw Jan 5, 2023 2:38:29 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: I had to take a shower after watching that second one. Our living room is decent sized, but I don't think my bride and I have the room, or the energy, to do the Tango on our "dance floor". Jan 5, 2023 4:04:51 GMT -6
lowell: The tango needs a larger dance floor but it can be slower with careful steps. Piazzolla's music is adapted by all the youtube performances. They could slow the tempo and still be tango. www.youtube.com/watch?v=81d1Tua_JvU&t=152s Jan 5, 2023 13:33:13 GMT -6
lowell: De Niro likes to include a tango in some of his movies. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahDV2Nt7VYc&t=1s These examples aren't Piazzolla but they illustrate that dancing side by side with careful steps and an occasional spin is okay. Jan 5, 2023 13:37:34 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: Something slow and cheek to cheek is more our style. Any song we can keep up with will do, but we do have a few "our songs" we like. Jan 6, 2023 4:07:45 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: I made the mistake of asking Siri to play a particular song and she opened Apple Music by default and signed me up for a 6 day trial. I wasn't expecting that. It expires tomorrow. I'll be more careful next time and open YouTube myself. Jan 19, 2023 18:58:04 GMT -6
lowell: There was a report of Siri calling police because of misunderstood words from a boxing instructor. Police showed up at the gym.- We signed up for a week of HBO Max so we could binge watch His Dark Materials season 3. Jan 20, 2023 14:10:43 GMT -6 *
James T. Kirk: I put an Alexa app in my iphone for Amazon Music but I'm going to take it off. When I speak to Alexa on my phone, the two Fire Tablets in other areas of the house answer. Jan 22, 2023 6:02:49 GMT -6
lowell: It isn't easy to unpair linked devices. Alexa should be able to do that with a voice command, but I expect it can't. Jan 24, 2023 14:49:16 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: I just uninstalled the Alexa app from my iPhone. I can still use Amazon Music without Alexa. I just have to find what I'm looking for myself. No big deal. Jan 28, 2023 15:45:39 GMT -6
lowell: Japan Eyes Accelerating Fusion Reactor Construction, Feb 28, 2023 15:46:38 GMT -6
James T. Kirk: Happy St. Paddy's Day. Mar 17, 2023 9:36:28 GMT -6
lowell: Indeed and thank you. My 23andMe test says I am more than 1/2 Irish. My son bought me the test. Also good news is - Turkey's Erdogan seals deal on Finland joining Nato.

lowell: "the government in Helsinki still has to secure the support of Hungary.

However, Hungary's ruling Fidesz party said on Friday that a vote would take place in parliament in Budapest on 27 March and that it would vote yes."
