|Mar-12-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Any of the Angels at Altamont have to be approaching 70 now, if he's lucky enough still to be alive.|
|Mar-12-12|| ||HeMateMe: Well, this was the only Hells Angel actually playing Bingo. Make sense. He was the one with the leather board.|
I remember walking by the Hells Angel garage in Alphabet City, Manhattan. I think they are/were on east Third avenue, east village. Nasty looking folks.
|Mar-12-12|| ||Jim Bartle: I went to a benefit for the widow of a Hells Angel who had died in 1969, Grateful Dead and Santana at Longshoremen's Hall in SF. All the Angels were extremely friendly, though we were encouraged to donate through the program beyond the $2 ticket cost. There were free sandwiches.|
At Altamont they weren't nearly as friendly, parking their motorcycles right in front of the stage and then beating up on any of the fans who came within breathing distance. And with 300,000 behind them, it was tough for the fans in front whenever a band would start playing, as the entire crowd would surge forward.
|Mar-12-12|| ||galdur: A Mason Handshake? ;)
|Mar-12-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Rick Ross, "Hit You From The Back":
|Mar-12-12|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://www.uschess.org/msa/XtblMain...|
(see the top/pro section)
I won another tournament over the weekend ...
|Mar-13-12|| ||WannaBe: Not in favour of the helmet law, and I rode a Yamaha 600cc for 11 years, still have a motorcycle license.|
AJ, please, stop promoting/glorifying yourself, you are only drawing attention and people to flame against you.
|Mar-13-12|| ||brankat: Some things never change :-)|
|Mar-13-12|| ||matebay: Iskubadayb: They banned cleavage in the European Women's Championship! What about us?? HIHIHI|
|Mar-13-12|| ||Check It Out: Congrats, AJ. And where else to publicly say it but at the local pub?|
|Mar-13-12|| ||HeMateMe: Well....has anyone else here been winning any events? I don't think it's so terrible if AJ mentions his results. He just has to remain grounded and polite, among us mere mortals.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||rogge: <Louisiana Weekenders> have bragging rights, no problem.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||HeMateMe: Someone was channelling their inner Mike Tyson, with gruesome results: (avoid this, if you have a problem with ears...)|
|Mar-13-12|| ||paavoh: @JimBartle: <"...they should improve the helmets. I can't see riding without one.>|
Is the helmet the only way you keep your hair up and out of your eyes? Try a headband instead ;-)
|Mar-13-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Congrats to A.J.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: The Black Keys, "I'll Be Your Man":
|Mar-13-12|| ||technical draw: <: They banned cleavage in the European Women's Championship! What about us??>|
That means we can't see "Leave it to Beaver" anymore.
|Mar-13-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Elvis, "Suspicious Minds remix":
|Mar-13-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Nobody cares if you win a tournament AJ. Get that into your thick, dense skull. Nobody cares.|
People care if Naka wins, or Yifan wins, or Carlsen, or.... Nobody cares what you win.
Share your joys and games with club mates, who will take an interest. Stop pestering us others with your rubbish, Troll.
|Mar-13-12|| ||Jim Bartle: I don't like a lot of what AJ posts, but if he wants to post that he won a tournament, what's the harm?|
|Mar-13-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<Technical Draw>
there is a (in)famous story about the South African championship where a guy lost to a girl, he later claiming her low cut top was a distracting feature that cost the game. I haven't found the article, alas, but I do remember a feminist ripping that guy's argument to shreds and in a very funny fashion too.
|Mar-13-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<Jim B>
I have won several tourneys, including the 2nd section of the Danish Rapid Championship. I have won top scorer in team chp....Blah, blah, blah.
Is that interesting? It is nice for me: hurray, I've played some good chess. It is for me, my friends and club mates. Why should anyone else be interested, though?
I am one of the cg7 for, amongst my other crimes, telling Mr. Goldsby to stop his awful bragging, self promotion. BAAAH! I had him on ignore until just now. But then you see AJ's name and comments pop up in responses.
|Mar-13-12|| ||Marmot PFL: <I won another tournament over the weekend ...>|
I was impressed, even if no one else was...soon you will need a new handle - FIDEMasterAJ.
You must post the games as soon as possible, I am sure the opponents won't object to being immortalized.
|Mar-13-12|| ||WannaBe: <Jim Bartle> I think the harm is that it will get people's shorts bunched up again, and start another flame war.|
He's got a forum, post it there, and if anything breaks out, it can stay there.
Not at the Cafe... Just my 2¢
