|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).
|Mar-03-16|| ||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.
|Mar-09-16|| ||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>
look so different from
<"Beauties of Chess">
|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:
Pick your favorite, they're all quintacular!
|Mar-23-16|| ||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...
("Special thanks to Pau Aguilera Malagón for sending it to us.")
|Mar-28-16|| ||zanzibar: I found out who did the art in the previous post - Alan Boileau, 3d wood sculptor/painter:|
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:
...and the beast
|Apr-04-16|| ||zanzibar: Maybe this is better... http://www.ancientcraft.co.uk/reena...|
|Apr-04-16|| ||zanzibar: https://kihm2.files.wordpress.com/2...|
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.
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?
