Hi Joe and All,
Unfortunately, I will have to stop listening for work though I want to note that the great film composer Hans Zimmer played on "Pop Muzik", an early example of a pop musician transitioning to film composition, like Danny Elfman and Mark Mothersbaugh. I guess classical composers were not so thrilled by this trend.

True NoArms Story:
There is an elderly woman who walks her dog on my block in Madrid ... It appeared she had no arms and I always wondered how she put the leash on. After a few years, I noticed there is an
"upper class posturing" of wearing a jacket but not putting the arms in the sleeves = I think it signifies wealth = do not need to do physical labor ... I then thought that answered that question..
but I then befriended some neighbors 5-7 years later and told them how I first thought the woman had no arms and wasn't I stupid. They told me the woman has no arms... We know not how or why .. nor how she puts on the leash on the doggie???
