To be able to sit through the whole video you need to try not get too upset by the BBC interviewer who acts like he is the specialist, while interviewing a nutty professor. It's clear the awfully unmannered BBC man prefers to hear himself talking because he obviously has a task to forfil here: to discredit all evidence that conflicts with the official NIST report and the official conspiracy theory.
Is this BBC guy just mislead, or is he consiously an agent of the biggest criminals of the new century?

Blown away by Giampiero & Ariane

Performances
by Giampiero Galdi (Italy) and Ariane Liautaud (France), in Amsterdam, Flavia's milonga, June 8.
Webpage Ariane
Webpage Giampiero
Let me tell you I was blown away by the dances of this these young people from Italy and France. Both dancers showed an enormous technical skill, a wide variety of steps and moves including some I had never seen before, musicality, playfullness, equality. But what would all that be worth without their obvious traits of tenderness and sensuality. The man's careful lead into spectacular steps, the opportunities given to- and appreciated by the lady follower, them always understanding eachothers improvisation with the speed of light, I thought it looked so romantic, and it made me believe this couple had been training together for years.
Wnhen having a little chat with 23 year young Giampiero I however learned that they're not working as a dance couple in that way, but that they just love to dance together at the milongas whenever they bump into eachother, and that their preparation for the performances in The Netherlands consisted of nothing more than practising two times, just before. Well, then I was even more impressed. How come they seem so fine tuned, how come their performance looks like they spend all their time together? "Probably because we had the same teachers" Giampiero said "but I actually do not know so much of whith whom Ariane took her classes".
I'm blown away, as I said. This dance couple that just meets for the occasion gave a show of four dances, one after the other full of complicated sequences, with an ease and a fluidity as if they've been training for years. They have shown their audience what improvisation,  from an italian man and a french woman, when you at least speak the same tango language, can be like: shear pleasure. That's what they expressed, in their dances, as well: "We are having so much fun!" And so was their audience. Thank you, young maestros for your hard work makin the world beautiful, and thanks Flavia for having given us the opportunity to meet them!

'De eeuw van Carlos Moreno Amador'
Debuutroman van Onno Wesseling
380 paginas. ISBN 978-90-445-2821-3, uitgeverij De Geus

Het is alsof ik een film gezien heb. Een meeslepend epos over meerdere generaties, met elkaar verbonden door de vermaledijde, maldito tango en de ellende veroorzaakt door armoede, bedrog, uitbuiting, onwetendheid, onbetouwbare beloften, en oorlog. En het leed dat mensen met een overgecompenseerd minderwaardigheidscomplex aan anderen kunnen toebrengen. Ik heb het over de debuutroman van Onno Wesseling, getiteld 'De eeuw van Carlos Moreno Amador'. Gebeuren er óók nog mooie dingen, of is het enkel maar ellende? Jawel, want er zijn altijd mensen die voldoende liefde in zich dragen om compassie te hebben met degenen die zich vergisten, of door een teveel aan tegenslagen gedreven werden tot daden waarvan zij als kind nog meenden dat zij zich daartoe nooit zouden verlagen.
Een van de meest gruwelijke dingen van een oorlog is misschien dat de vijand niet atijd zo duidelijk te onderscheiden is, als ware hij immer een soldaat gekleed in een buitenlands uniform. Het zijn de landgenoten, buurtgenoten, buren, en soms zelfs huisgenoten of familieleden, die zich ontpoppen tot een levensbedreigende opponent, die het leed onverdraaglijk maken. Om daarna niét zodanig om te zien in wrok, dat het je leven vergalt, kost zoveel tijd, dat niet iedereen dat in zijn leven nog haalt. Moest ik vorige week aan scenes van de show 'Otango' denken, afgelopen dagen zag ik fragmenten van de film 'Elle s'appelait Sarah' voor me. Niet alleen vanwege de verschrikkingen van de tweede wereldoorlog, maar óók omdat dit verhaal zich eveneens over meerdere generaties en werelddelen uitstrekt en de mensen in het verleden moeten graven om het heden te begrijpen.
Wesseling bespeelt je verwachtingen en weet je daarom toch telkens weer te verrassen. Zo is dat, in mijn beleving althans, óók met muziek. Het is misschien fijn, als het een betrouwbare lijn volgt  die enigzins in de verwachting ligt, maar het wordt pas oorstrelend en tot een genot, wanneer ons telkens een verrassing wacht, die zó mooi op het voorgaande past, dat je weet, dat dát het is wat slechts een kunstenaar eraan kon toevoegen.
