Ah, the Tango.
The dance of passion. The intimate dance of love, the sultry display of deepest affection, the couqettish dance of prostitutes. I cannot recall now when I first fell in love with this dance and its music, the sharp rhythms flirting with the elaborate melodies, the dancers sweeping and sliding, never parting for long.
As a result I burnt 20 bucks on a Midnight Tango CD. Don't ever, if you want to get a tango CD, go for ballroom tangos. The music much more often than not is flat, compensating the melodies and the sensuousness and the steaming passion that is tango for cold hard tick-tock rhythms. Now I'm not a show-off ok, you know I'm not. Nevertheless I pride myself on things that I am good at (don't worry I don't count singing). So if you specify what sort of tango you want - soft, new age, argentinean(this is the 'hot' one, most of it anyway), etc. etc. etc., and if you're at the music store preferably give me the names of the CDs you see there, I should be able to tell you what CD is suited for you. I had a hunch about this Midnight Tango CD, and I was almost never more right.
And to think I stepped into the store to find a Latin favourites CD for my mom.
Moving right along, about time I told you I've already received my timetable and confirmation letter for my SIM program. Four subjects for 13 weeks, and another for exams.
Introduction to Microeconomics (fair enough)
Advanced Written English and Reading (hopefully a breeze)
Survey of Algebra and Trigonometry (should be ok lah)
Theory of Music for Nonmajors (wahahaha)
The timetable is rather relaxed, actually. Maximum two lectures in one day, 9-10.30am and 2-4pm. But I'll probably have to spend the rest of the day researching and having tea with the Profs.
