Mar-01-16  HeMateMe: Really, you guys disappoint me. How about some Next Generation Dolls instead?

Mar-01-16  zanzibar: <HMM> Ah, <HMM> this is how your comment makes me feel...

Sad and pensive, and slightly morose.

Mar-01-16  HeMateMe: I can't help it if I'm shallow and horny.
Mar-02-16  zanzibar: <HMM> in mating season... what a doll!

Mar-03-16  zanzibar: Myrna and I played a game last night.

She played the French again, and I'm afraid I had a moment. Here she is accepting my "resignation":

Mar-03-16  zanzibar: And here's some art, or so I've been told.

It is a nice photograph, but I can't help but wonder about the position (and the chips).

  WannaBe: I'd at least have a bowl of salsa, or guacamole. Even just plain cheeze dip.
Mar-04-16  HeMateMe: nice cake.
Mar-09-16  zanzibar: Au naturale!

Shapely, and oh so beautiful as is.

  WannaBe: Hubba hubba hubba!!
Mar-10-16  zanzibar: So, I was looking for A. Alexandre's <Beauties of Chess (1846)> with over 100 problems.

So how come a google image search on

<"Beauties of Chess> https://www.google.com/search?q=%22...

look so different from

<"Beauties of Chess"> https://www.google.com/search?q=%22...

?

Mar-19-16  zanzibar: There are all sorts here:

Good for those liking a little formality.

But I'm left wondering... are we supposed to know all those people?

Mar-23-16  zanzibar: Today's subject - quintuplets:

  WannaBe: Amazing what copy & paste can do now-a-days.
Mar-24-16  zanzibar: Photoshop, the greatest invention since sliced bread.

(Or Donald's hair?!)

Mar-26-16  zanzibar: Some dolls furnish a flurry of furious flourish, others play lines that are clean and shiny:

Mar-27-16  zanzibar: <Being a great theoretical physicist, Dirac liked to theorize about all the problems of daily life, rather than to find solutions by direct experiment. Once, at a party in Copenhagen, he proposed a theory according to which there must be a certain distance at which a woman's face looks its best. He argued that at d = infinite one cannot see anything anyway, while at d = 0 the oval of the face is deformed becaue of the small aperture of the human eye, and many other imperfections (such as small wrinkles) become exaggerated. Thus there is a certain optimum distance at which the face looks its best.

"Tell me, Paul," [Gamow, a Russian physicist] asked, "how close have you seen a woman's face?"

"Oh,"replied Dirac, holding his palms about two feet apart, "about that close.">

So let's get a blow up of these two dolls...

Mar-28-16  zanzibar: I found out who did the art in the previous post - Alan Boileau, 3d wood sculptor/painter:

https://www.google.com/search?q=ala...

His "Two Men Playing Chess" shows up as image #27, pretty far down. I happen to think it rates better.

Here's the artist:

He's quite a talented doll.

Mar-29-16  zanzibar: I think I just found my inspiration for a new chess piece design:

Apr-03-16  HeMateMe: I've never played with anything that delicate:

Apr-04-16  zanzibar: <HMM> I'm very impressed by her pinky etiquette.

Two dolls that came up recently from my <CG> adventures:

A photograph by Mathew Brady.

Apr-04-16  zanzibar: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, is a cliche never truer....

But the beast who contributed the <Venus of Moravany> beauty was a mammoth.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus...

http://donsmaps.com/moravanyvenus.h...

She was found just up the road from Kolisch's hometown I believe.

There's a whole category of Venus's:

Not all beauty fades with age I suppose.

Apr-11-16  zanzibar: Not much of chess connection here, well, one doll shows up on chess.com and the other has a chess review blog.

Perhaps these two are connected? Maybe one in the same?
