  TheFocus: Yes, Bloodworth is probably in Hell tonight walking around with a chess board under his arm, playing the Dante Defense.

  MarkFinan: <Karposian: <Mark> Did he come from Pensacola, FL by any chance?>

<john barleycorn: Mark, do you mean "THE LEGEND"?>

The man, the legend, the myth. The Pele of chess, lol.

<Mikhail Tal !>

I like Tal too. Hollywood chess, perhaps 2nd to only Morphy (maybe Alekhine?) in that regards.

<I love him so much as a chessplayer ..

<but even more as a beautiful man.>>

I'm starting to worry about you hazzard, lol. Are you not taking part in the "Octsober" campaign?? That's a genuine question btw because I am. I don't get drunk anymore anyway, i can only manage fresh. Think I'm immune to it, lol. Supposed to be doing a booze run to Belgium this month as well so it's gonna be a struggle.

<HeMateMe: check out Jim Carrey in drag, as Cher Bono>

Seek help, looool. ✌

Thanks harry. I'll check it out now. I like Marr too. He won the "God like genius" award at the NME's last year. We English can be a bit too enthusiastic at lolling times, lol.

  Travis Bickle: Black Sabbath ; P

Sweet Leaf/Electric Funeral
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo7...

Children of The Grave
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKD...

Oct-01-14  nok: Sweet leaf must be one of the most addictive riffs ever. Another riff poised for stardom by being selected for the movie Top Gun, but the band refused.

  Travis Bickle: <nok> I always loved this riff & this song the band goes wild! ; P

Supernaut - Black Sabbath
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsD...

Oct-01-14  nok: Yes iirc that's Zappa's favorite riff.
Oct-01-14  ljfyffe: What ever happened to Suzzie Cream Cheese?
Oct-01-14  diceman: <Travis Bickle: <nok> I always loved this riff & this song the band goes wild! ; P>

...with that opening hi-hat, I wonder if they knew how close they were to doing Shaft?
