Greetings all!

Was worried you'd missed the Bowie Paulo.๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค™
  3:07am modern blaze:

will there be some predicts?)
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:10am Paulo AD:

How are you biran, all good.

No chance Scotty, like I said I was summoned by the man himself hahah
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:11am Paulo AD:

Hows it going Fred ?

I tired running outside again yesterday, had a big red head all day. Still waaaay too hot
  3:12am modern blaze:

oh, chicken soup as always, not to mention low degrees haha
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:13am Paulo AD:

My spelling is atrocious this morning it seems.
Glad you are with us for the foreseeable Brian :)

Good day Brian and monetary units! (bread, cabbage, scratch, etc)
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:16am fred:

@Paulo: I went to three shows this week, at least two more planned for the coming week. I missed that so much over the past year and a half
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:16am Paulo AD:

Plato has had his day in the sun today
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:22am fred:

@Paulo: I liked all of these shows, which isn't always the case, so I was lucky this week. I try to see 40-50 contemporary dance shows a year, many by young choreographers I don't know, so some are not for me, it comes with the territory
  3:24am modern blaze:

i'll add some aware to these https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhN84rMUbX4
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:24am Paulo AD:

Oh I miss going to those show. Pre covid we went to see Dance by Lucinda Child. One of the best things Ive ever seen and soundtracked by phillip glass
  3:27am modern blaze:

i don't go to shows anymore cause there're only alote of club things going on right now...
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:30am fred:

I love Lucinda Childs, I've seen "Dance" several times. A few years ago, she was still performing the solo in the middle herself. I think my favorite of her works is "Available Light", with music by John Adams

The one we say was the last performace of it. Honest it was breathtaking.
NYU AD used to put on a-lot of good stuff like this pre pandemic. The Kronos quartet showed thir doc here once and played a live score to it.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:35am Paulo AD:

I honestly cannot type today !!!
  3:39am modern blaze:

SLF were in every commercial possible in 2000's and i never been admired of that...
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:39am fred:

I used to see Kronos every year, but now tickets are just too expensive. They're great, but I won't spend 50+ euros on a concert (even for dance, it would have to feature Cynthia Loemij, and I still might balk)
  3:42am modern blaze:

check the mate like Big Boys in entitled...
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:44am Paulo AD:

Fred - the joys of NYU and AD subsidising tickets over here to get people to come
  3:46am modern blaze:

believe it or not but NYU is still big and upfronting like colleague...

Thank you, @Chaos.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:20am fred:

@Brian: putting a DJ premium together might be a challenge for a show with a current events focus. It might be 6 months between the time you make it and the time I get it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am Brian D:

Yeah @Fred. We're working through that. Thankfully, I have some time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am Brian D:

And coming up with an idea is a nice problem to have!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:24am Paulo AD:

Yeah, it's not the worst problem is it :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24am Scott67:

G'day Ike.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:30am fred:

@Paulo: There was a plate premium (for Seven Second Delay) at some point. I don't know if some are left in the prize warehouse, but if Plato gets complacent...
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:30am Paulo AD:

Oh really ! I'll be having a word with him later to pull his socks up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31am diciassette:

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:32am Paulo AD:

Right I'm off for dose number 3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Ike:

Happily, Daniel Blumin is not moving โ€œoff the scheduleโ€, heโ€™s just going to Monday nights 9-midnight. Three hours for Blumin, yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Brian D:

Correct Ike. Thank you. Yes, did not mean to imply he was off completely.

Good luck Paulo.โœŒ๐Ÿ˜Ž
