Anything could happen!
Dear Ana Paula,
It’s great to hear that you got to stage number 1 in the dance process but I’m curious to hear how many stages there are until you get to the real thing? I’m also curious to hear as to why you are such a reluctant dancer! This sounds serious (do we need to call a doctor?! ;). Glad you liked the show! Regarding how my friend Mark and I select the music, the first thing you should know is that we usually don’t collaborate. We just turn up at the station and surprise each other. That seems to give us and everyone else the sense that anything could happen! Regarding how I select the tracks that I play, it really depends on what mood I’m in the night before and the morning of the show as well as what stuff I find that week in my record collection (yes, I said “record” collection!) or by searching the internet. The golden rule though is that I must like it and it should groove. However, “groove” has a very broad meaning!!! If you tune in next week you will probably see what I mean! Why don’t you choose a few tracks and I’ll see if I can find them and play them for you (if I like them of course!!). By the way, this is not something I do professionally (I mean for money) just for the love of music! I believe that music is probably humankind’s greatest achievement. Everyone loves music and music loves everyone, it can cross all boundaries and hurts no-one. Also I can’t recommend making music with friends enough. It is such a good feeling and an extraordinary way of connecting with people, very good for the soul. Do you play an instrument? Is there anything you do, or, would like to do just for the love of it? This question is not only for you Ana but everyone else too, - let’s call it homework if you like- you are all so interesting and I’m building a better picture of you all the more you comment. I’m wondering how the picture you are building of me is looking now…
(A special note for Vladimir: beware the monster from the deep could raise it’s fearsome head at any moment…)
I think that will have to be it from me for now but let me leave you with a special picture of my wife and…
Extra task (alongside my question in the blog): write some sentences using the phrases I've highlighted.
