Two world-class dance teachers teaching mazurka clandestina, which is suitable for dancing in a plaza to a plaintive violin at dusk*. We will be practicing inside and with the lights on though. More at
* N.b: you all know about Dancing til Dusk, yes? It will be happening again this year.

I know this: the Obeebo is not a dance, despite the brass steps between Republican and Mercer.

Well, it's a dance now, allowing a slightly tango move in which the follow steps over one of the lead's feet. I mean, it's more of a dance than the Broadway Steps waltz is a waltz*; I gather the artist traced Arthur Murray dancers but I hold to my point. A box step would be more useful.

... Just checked to see if anyone had written an obeebo tune, and found instead a trademark application for "MACHINE ASSISTED CREATIVITY covers Providing temporary use of non-downloadable cloud-based software for writing music, analyzing music and creating musical compositions using artificial intelligence". Huh.

*File this with "plain text" and "415 A" and "fitted sheets aren't worth the trouble". I'm not wrong, but I'm much disagreed with.

He made up two joke dances, the obeebo and other of which I of course forget. The coffee beans in the heels denote the location of the second Starbucks evar, open at the time in a former drycleaners.

Option: violin-player is actually Hungarian?

That would be wistfully delightful in its own way, Twang. Do you happen to know a Hungarian violinist in Seattle?
