Welcome to Protoplasm Tango. In case you’re wondering about the name, it refers to a 6os song by a mathematician and musician called Tom Lehrer. The song, ‘Masochism Tango’, was not only very funny, but for the time, very daring. I hope you’ll find its near-namesake funny and a bit daring too.Even though this was the blog that was never going to be. But what the hell: things change. Today, a blog. Tomorrow – live-blogging. Wish me luck, and see you tomorrow.
