To dance or not to dance that´s the question!
Dear Simon and friends,
Oh no Simon, I don´t have any reluctance to dance, at least in the bathroom :-). Well, I look like a rusty robot when I´m dacing, which it isn´t that bad because it´s like a kind of dance. Anyway, once I´ve tried to take some belly dancing classes with my cousin ( Ooh I know... I have no idea what I had in my mind by that time. Oh please! You can call the shrink now ;-)) But it hasn´t worked out at all. You know all that soft movements weren´t really for me. My cousin turned to me and said: 'Move your arm like this'. And then I moved my arm like Kong Fu Panda. Oh I was a disaster indeed!
Nowadays I prefer to follow the song rhythm, and then I try to improvise some steps which are a very demanding task. By the way, there are just three stages. First thing you should know is how to move your hands and head at the same time. Second one are the feet. And the last but the most difficult of all ( it took me ages to do it right) is trying to do everything together :-D. But Simon I reckon you must be a wonderful dancer. Well, Catherine has given me this impression. What a pity we can see you in action here ;-).
Oh thanks for telling me how is you and mark choose the set of songs. So the show it´s pretty much like a little box of surprises for both of you. You just turn up in the studio and do the show. Oh it´s great to hear that, because you do give us the sense that anything could happen. I didn´t know what set of songs I could expect to listen to after another. You know one thing that I found very interesting was that your friend has chosen a Gorillaz song whereas you have come with a totally different rhythm after Mark´s choices. You both have a such good timing. One can see you´re really doing something that you love. Oh for sure I´m going to tune in again next Saturday. This Blogland is so fantastic! Apart from brushing up on my English I´m also learning about music :-).
Ah! So you have a record collection. That´s interesting...
Simon I don´t play any instrument. Imagine the most awful guitarist that you´ve ever heard to play. Ok, I´m pretty much like he or she :-).
Well, I´m not so sure if the Brazilian songs follow the golden rules though. Maybe some Paula Lima are groove. However, as you said the word groove has a very broad meaning :-).
Aah... this is not an easy question. But if I could do something just for the love of it I´d go in all cinema festivals that exist ( at least I´d try to go). Depend on the mood what I would be in I would choose which festival I would attend. Oh in this festivals there are a range of films from all over the world and I just love to know what´s going on in the international film scenery. Besides, this kind of festival is not only for these Hollywood blockbusters, and that´s what makes this kind of festival so appealing to me :-). Of course if I could do this with friends it´d be much better. I think I can´t recommend watching films with friends enough. It´s always nice to have a friend to share your film´s impressions. Am I right?
Now Simon wait a minute. Wow! Woody Allen! I´m curious to hear how you came to take a picture of Woody Allen and your lovely wife! Wow! I do like his films. My favourite one is The Purple Rose Of Cairo. Apart from that, I´m also curious to hear as to why you didn´t have the opportunity to take a picture by his side too. Well, maybe you had it and you´ll show us later :-).
Simon, I´m also building a better picture of you. You seem to be a very easy-going person who loves music immensely. Moreover, I have the impression that you´re a very caring father and husband :-).
Hey friends! Thanks for all your comments. I´m enjoying chinwag with you all very much indeed :-).
Hey Mahjabeen! I´m glad to know you´ve liked D2 :-). Sex Pistols are an Englsih punk rock band Mahjabeen. Take a look at YouTube and you could see there the original version of the song God Save The Queen :-).
Hey Carmen! I do listen to you. Haven´t I watched Pulp Fiction recently? ( Oh by the way, I liked the film very much. Gosh! The soundtracks are amazing :-)). Ok, ok it took almost 3 months to watch it but now as you know it´s part of my DVD collection :-D. Oh I´ve looked for Frau contra Bass but I haven´t found them. I´m really curious to hear their version for Billy Jean.
Hi dear Cris, I´m glad you liked the films I´ve recommended to you :-). Thank for your kind compliments. You also have a lovely English.
Hello Maurício, the Skype is quite new for me. I´ve found people to chat with on the BBC LE Facebook group. It was there that I came to know about this software. We´re a group of nine people from Argentina, Colombia,Germany, France, Italy, Pakistan and Taiwan. Actually, we´re good friends now. Maybe you can join us some day :-). You know how to find us :-).
Paula, it´d be very nice to have you on our Skype meetings. We usually meet on the weekends at 14:30 GMT. We use the Facebook board to decide the topic for the weekend.
Hi Nini, it´s nice to hear from you hear :-).
