  1. Hi Bear,
    I love the rich deep sound of The Rose In The Vase On The Table.
    The Tango is a delight. I recognize the Antonio Banderas scene 🙂 with different music it’s still a great dance.
    Where the Wild Roses Grow is so dark –yet compelling. I’d not come across that before. Thanks.

    • I do wish the slaps had been omitted, especially as it was a classroom scene …. Tango Delle Rose was written in 192(3? I think) . It took a while to find a version not too slow and with a little fire.

      Here is another wmv clip of this song with Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave acting it out. But as her diction is not too clear I used the lyrics version. I knew it only as a folk song. I love how they each warble their voices in the word “follow” and “teeth”

      Lisa, of Johnny and Lisa, used to sing this. When she heals, she will again.

  3. Hello Bear,
    Sorry, I am terribly disorganized of late –literally and figuratively and mentally.
    Ah we have one Shared choice this round. 🙂

    But–I think we should do Poets & Poetry for the the next round. You can thank Mr.Shakur for that idea. 🙂

    Okay, now I’m going to attempt grabbing links for sharing/posting at my blogcasa. I’m tickled to see that Johnny has joined in again. 🙂

        I can’t sing yet, but I did drop my oxygen down to one liter today instead of 2. I also stayed off of it for an hour during the test so I’m confident that I won’t need it forever. I hope my lungs heal enough for me to sing again.

          and nostril sore? How aggravating to be tethered. But at the same time, you have enough energy to BE aggravated. And

          • Lisa, You are amazing. Sometimes I am glad it is this century, even this decade, instead of even one decade ago.

            I just read divergent by Veronica Roth, then bought the series for some granddaughters…. and went to see the movie. Ther were 5 people, besides me, in the theatre in Jacksonville, FL. After and entire HALF HOUR of previews, the movie was even OK. I do that, read the kids stuff first …. another series that is good for precocious teen girls (and us adults, too) is the Patterson series … which just went out of my head … Flight? First Flight? About a small group of kids that have been genetically altered to grow wings. it’s a few years old, but the technology is still good, and the lessons about friendship and responsibility and children’s and young teens issues. are all still good. Just some bookish ideas ….while your voice rests….

            I’ve read the entire series. LOL. I’m halfway through the last Robert Jordan book and I have Dawn’s books coming too. I’ve been watching sci-fi movies, but I think I’m ready to start reading again. I think I can hold the books up now. If you get anymore ideas on books let me know. We seem to like the same reading material. Thank you for the compliment. I feel less than amazing. I’ll keep trudging forward. Divergent I haven’t read. I’ll check that out.

          • ps If I am not alone when I dance (usually I am alone) I must be careful. I have reached an age so that the same movements, that only a few years (well …10 yrs) ago, were seductive and/or passionate and exotic are now merely obscene. I am old enough to be your mother 🙂 hahahaha I just had a vision of ME, now, in a tiny dress (hahahaha) doing dances I used to do 🙂 Hahahaha Some I am even capable of, but they sure don’t look the same. Many I am no longer able to perform. I’ve modified my personal style to accommodate my modified, older, self. It’s OK. 🙂

            Here is an example, I put my glasses (readers) down, and now I can’t quite tell what I am typing … capitals or not, punctuation, dunno if it is a period or comma, etc. That sort of changes happen all over. Sigh.

            Now, as Youngest Son (20) would say, “Cat’s On Fire LOL AOFLOLAFTCBL Away From The Computer Back Later.”

            Hahaha. It is always important to modify these things because we are not all built the same. And it’s a relief when it is not about the aesthetics, especially in private. Fabulous to dance alone and I love to laugh when I dance with others.

            Getting older, like everything else, you win some you lose some, yes? 🙂

          • For me, dance always involves, nay, requires an awareness of aesthetics. Without an essence of grace and freedom through controlled movement, there is only exercise. To me, dance is the body’s music. Careless movement is like careless bowing of a violin. It is visual squawks. Even dissonant harmony is not sloppy or random. There is always an element of purpose, of intent.

            Saying DANCE is like saying MUSIC or LANGUAGE. Huh? What does THAT mean? The words seem too inclusive. …… Just my opinion and subject to change 🙂

            Lol. Yes, purpose and intent are the perfect words here. When it comes to the aesthetics I can become weary of the beholder. That aside, awareness of aesthetics can not be separated from dance because it is a language after all right? 🙂

          • “… become weary of the beholder”

            Oh that is beautiful!!! That is your phrase and you should preserve it somewhere for inclusion in something …

            Yes. Awareness of aesthetics can not be separated from dance, which is a language. 🙂
