|Jul-29-16|| ||HeMateMe: patriotic AND a good body! That's my kind of gal, dammit.|
|Aug-03-16|| ||HeMateMe: I'm just glad the two candidates were able to get everything straightened out.|
|Aug-05-16|| ||HeMateMe: my goodness. the photo of Trump kissing Ted Cruz has remained current for a week.|
what's wrong with you guys?
|Aug-07-16|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> there's a time and a place for everything.|
Plus, I recognize a retread when I sees it!
|Aug-07-16|| ||zanzibar: (In keeping with the NY theme)|
|Aug-07-16|| ||zanzibar: Doing an image search for <horrible chess books> this image, er, pops up:|
Of course Spraggett is involved.
This pair of dolls also shows up, sans Spraggett:
Not exactly sure where the chess connection is.
But, finally, there was also this image, with a clearer connection between the dolls and the board:
Remember those Maxwell House commercials?
|Aug-08-16|| ||HeMateMe: I fail to see the chess connection, though I do like the photo of the girl with a hand in the fellow's pants. I don't think I've ever seen that on a book cover before.|
<there's a time and a place for everything>
You know, just looking at that photo I see this chorus girl/possible hooker playing what looks like the English defense, and she has her hand on the Queen, like she's going to move it to c2.
They don't look like girls who read chess books, and Q-c2 is a bad move. I'm going to bet that they just set up the board to somehow add a new wrinkle to the typical day of a showgirl. Amazing, these photographers who will spend $1,000 on a camera but won't spend five minutes on the internet to find a 'legal' chess position for their magazine cover.
|Aug-16-16|| ||zanzibar: Another example of a photo with a tenuous chess connection:|
I understand the offer was £5 to go topless, £10 for the full monty.
|Aug-16-16|| ||WannaBe: I'd do the full money for $1.|
|Aug-16-16|| ||WannaBe: http://www.atomicmoo.com/wp-content...|
There, now y'all owe me a dollar.
|Aug-16-16|| ||zanzibar: A rabbit of many poses.|
|Aug-16-16|| ||zanzibar: Anyways, I don't have a dollar at the moment.
The best I can do is a toothy grin:
|Aug-18-16|| ||zanzibar: Courtesy of batgirl...
What a doll!
|Aug-18-16|| ||WannaBe: <Z> My eyes would <NOT> be looking down. That's all I have to say about that.|
|Aug-18-16|| ||zanzibar: I always keep my eyes on the road, my hand upon the wheel.|
|Aug-18-16|| ||WannaBe: <Z> without clickin' on the link. That's the Doors. =)) Good ol' Jimbo Mo!|
20th Century Fox and the spoof (Craigslist) by Weird Al, are great. If you haven't seen it, go on YouTube and look it up. Hilarious.
|Aug-18-16|| ||HeMateMe: that's a great video of the Doors. Makes you feel like you were there. Never saw a stage that wild before.|
I remember seeing Prince at MSG and some high school kid ran out on stage during the show, right up to the mike where Prince was. He just stepped aside and smiled, let the kid have his moment for five seconds, before security ran out and grabbed the kid. I hope they didn't hurt him.
|Aug-21-16|| ||HeMateMe: 5-9
|Aug-22-16|| ||HeMateMe: kid seems to be well fed, anyway.
|Sep-15-16|| ||perfidious: Denise Frick, with thanks to <kamagong24>:|
|Sep-15-16|| ||Retireborn: She plays the Sicilan and has got a giant horse's head?|
|Sep-28-16|| ||zanzibar: Here's one I stumbled across, thought it worth a look:|
A fat cat doll doling it out.
|Oct-05-16|| ||HeMateMe: I searched for chess yoga, and this came up:
timeout at a life sized game?
this chess set comes up:
I'm not sure I like how the king is depicted. He's upside down, facing the Queen? I guess the pawns are carved true to life.
|Oct-05-16|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> You need a rating system...|
Could be time to abide in FIDE? (in iambic pentameter)
|Oct-21-16|| ||HeMateMe: She's 51!
Liz still rocks.
