Re: Introduction...

Welcome, uncle!

Thats fun. Here in Bahia, it is usual, that anyone calls any known or
unknown person the way he just feels. So kids call me "tio" (uncle), I call
the waiter "master", a girl "beauty", the leader calls his musician "my
king" and mothers call their doughter "mother" and you are even allowed to
call a fat man "fat man". Its really marvelous. There are also people that
simply call everbody "father" and "mother" and do not remember names.

Is it that rare in Europe?!

Thats how I started, it '85. "Playmate" they called the taping function on
it, but it takes a while to establishes the delayed sound. By then the
rhythm is gone...

Hope to hear more about looping italians...
