  takchess: Does anyone have Gelfand-Kanstler USzgorod 1987 game? It would be a good one to post as it has a nice combination that captures the queen.

I did look in CG and didn't find it.

I'm interested to see if this was set up as a trap.

  kingfu: Re: Captain Beefheart

Once upon a time long ago, I moved my East Coast wife to Manhattan Beach in California. I heard The Sound outside our tiny apartment. There is only one sound like it in the World. It was The Blimp flying low over the beach. I bolted outside, scaring the bejesus out of my wife. What is it? What is it, she cried? It's the blimp, it's the blimp, I replied. She stared into the sky, mesmerized.

THE BLIMP (mousetrapreplica)
By Don Van Vliet
CAPTAIN BEEFHEART

Master, master.
This is recorded through a flies ear.
And you have to have the flies eyes to see it.
It's the thing that's going to make Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band fat.

Frank, it's the big hit.
It's The Blimp.
It's The Blimp Frank.
It's The Blimp.

When I see you floating down the gutter
I'll buy you a bottle of wine.
Put me on the white hook, Shadrack Meshach.
The something hoop, the something hoop.
The blimp the blimp.
The dreazy hoops. The dreazy hoops.
They're camp. They're camp.
The mother ship. The mother ship.
The blimp. The blimp.
Look up in the sky, there is a dirigible there.
All the people stir and the girls knees tremble and run and wave their hands in the air. And they run their hands over the blimp, the blimp.
Daughter don't you care.
Oh, Momma who cares?
It's The Blimp.
It's The Blimp.

END.

This great musical art is on Trout Mask Replica. The Frank refers to Frank Zappa, the producer. There was a band playing background music in Frank's studio. The flies ear refers to the song being recorded over the phone. Frank put it on the album with the studio music and the libretto over the phone AS IT HAPPENED.

Great stuff.

Does anyone know where Don Van Vliet's paintings can be seen?

After music Captain Beefheart did paintings. And they were great as well.

Oh, BTW, here is how the blimp got it's name:
There are two types of frames for lighter than air craft:

A. Rigid

B. Limp

It's The Blimp. It's The blimp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  takchess: TPstar,

Thank you. I'm assuming my inability to find games is user error.

next time I'll write down the names on paper and verify spelling before entering them into the search screen.

That being said, there is a nice tactic in this game that would make a good puzzle of the day.

  HeMateMe: Just saw where Tonya Harding is pregnant. The kid(s) don't know what they are in for. Maybe the back area of the trailer can be penned up as a baby room?

  HeMateMe: My high school calculus teacher said it was a waste of time. He was probably just jealous of not having an interesting hobby. He was the sort of fellow who could go to an Elvis show and say "You know, I don't know what all the excitement's about...".

  Phony Benoni: The only greater timewaster than chess is arguing whether chess is a waste of time.
Feb-11-11  micartouse: <redorc19> The most useful lesson chess teaches is complexity. We cannot solve chess or even come close to it. Yet chess is only 64 squares, 32 pieces. Why do we think we can solve economic, religious, social, political problems where the pieces are infinite and the board is formless?

We can use principles, of course, as in chess. But exceptions and surprises are always around the corner. At some point we have to be humble and admit defeat - we don't really understand much of anything.

Chess is useful insofar as it helps clarify this.
