I'll have to look this up, but some parts of these look like they may have survived into dancesport and round-dancing (called ballroom).

As I'll be heading north this weekend there will be no more details until Sunday or Monday.

I made an LJ feed for this journal -- LJ folks can put SusanKickery onto their flist.

Susan, do you mind increasing the font? I've got my nose to the monitor.

Oh, dear, I am awash in LJ feeds! There is also one at: http://syndicated.livejournal.com/capering_feed/. Great minds think alike, apparently.

Since I wouldn't know an LJ feed if it bit me, is it bad to have two?

Font size increased for posts; I'm leaving the sidebars teeny-tiny for now.

Thanks for the font increase!

No problem with two, they'll be alike and people can choose which to read.

(Interesting decisions on naming -- I went with the domain, and the other person went with the title.)

RE: The Tango Square image, taken from Albert W. Newman's book
Dear Webmaster / Subscribers,
I am an academic and screenwriting researcher, Rose Ferrell, and I wish to use the image of the Tango Square used in this blog in a chapter I am writing in an academic textbook on screenwriting.
I wonder if you can tell me who to credit with the image, and whose permission I need to ask to reproduce it in book form. (As a contributing author, I am not paid for my chapter).
Thanks for your help.
Warm regards,

Rose -

The Albert Newman book is online at the Library of Congress website, here:


The tango square image is on page 127, here:


The book itself is from 1914 and therefore out of copyright, so I do not believe there is any legal bar to reproducing an exact facsimile of an image from it, but the Library of Congress would be the place to query for this particular image.
