Thread Announcement Sticky Locked new New Poll Bookmark


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: 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. 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. Jan 5, 2023 13:33:13 GMT -6
lowell: De Niro likes to include a tango in some of his movies. 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."
