so yeah, foof and i are talking about the big dance event coming up in
manhattan january, we're on skype, and he's also got a dancerun thing
coming up end of september in italy which is south of switzerland maybe,
anyway so he's exercising foomph foomph foomph while we're talking, it's
just before he's running about, foomph foomph, we're talking about
filming, i take out the hd sony, such a little thing, point it screen-
wise, we're laughing about it, i set the lens at closeup for near and far.
anyway, so i record, we're fooling around for the camera, he's exercising,
i'm making bad jokes, can't do anything else being so tired and sick and
all, i'm recording these five short pieces. so i'm doing that and say well
there's a video in this, wait and see. so then i edit it all and our silly
voices kept going and going, it was too much. so what to do. so i took the
voices out, added a slowed-down or sped-up cobza soundtrack, forget which,
and there you are, it all fit together. but then i saw it all looked like
masturbation, foomph foomph foomph, it was no such thing, it was just this
exercise stuff. well now what. it made for a good video, that's the truth
of it, so then i thought i didn't want people to get the wrong idea. so i
thought, maybe i'd add this description, and they'll get it right, that it
wasn't masturbation at all but just warming up for a practice dancerun
which to be sure is a warming up for a real dancerun shortly down the
line. so here it is, have fun with it, it might be a sunny day yet on the
upswing although it's the middle of the night,
