Evolution into something bigger, better, greater, mightier, tastier - it's not only a trend, it's DESTINY. Just look at a couple of reports in the Toronto Star lately and you'll see what we mean.
Firstly, look at the KFC "legendary", "culinary coronary", Double Down sandwich. A sandwich that gets to the lowdown on taste:
After months of maximum hype, the Colonel’s chicken empire introduced its latest “sandwich,” the Double Down, which uses two slabs of fried chicken in place of the bun. In between are bacon, cheese and sauce.
One of Cold Stone Creamery’s new flavour ice cream shakes, with 2,010 calories and 68 grams of saturated fat, was declared the unhealthiest drink out of a list of 20 worst, according to Men’s Health magazine.
Humankind is always striving for the better and better. That's why all these Tango-Fusion dances - "Jango", "Swango", "Bacha-Tango", "Tango Salsa", "Ta-Chango", "Bungeeango", "Craperango" etc. - are all such winners. Why waste time on the "trance inducing", "mind-melding", "life-enhancing" and "soul-enriching" a.k.a. BORING aspects of Tango when you can just take the best bits, put it in a blender with some dynamite and VOILA! No embrace, no musicality, no feeling, no connection - but lots of jumps, lots of splits, lots of ganchos, lots of "colgadas" and "volcadas", lots of poses, plenty of teeth grinding and yes, continuous ochos. That's what people really want - more saturated fats, more sodium, more sugar, more calories = more taste!
And why bother to look to Buenos Aires for the future of tango when we can see it right here in North America in the latest edition of "Dancing with the Stars"? We present: "Tango Brutale" by Erin Andrews and her professional partner Maksim Chemerkovskiy:
Like us, you too may be sitting in stunned awe right now. You must be completely, utterly dazzled - but did you observe carefully at 3:30 and 4:02? They have finally got to the Double Down, PB&C core of "TANGO":
Erin nearly broke Maksim's neck when she made that leap from the stage - so we have a lot to be thankful for. Because what we really, truly want in Tango, the thing that makes us salivate - is nothing other than the spectacle of FLYING BOMBACHAS.
