  TheFocus: What about Slim Whitman's <Greatest Yodeling Songs>?

You know, he outseld the Beatles.

  WannaBe: <Whitehat1963> Shame on you. Every chess lover and visitor to Live Game Page knows, the ALLLLLLL time favourite song (of everyone, even Mr. Freeman hisself):

Dancing Rook by ABBA!

Oct-08-14  ljfyffe: The Duchess was actually done by Robert Browning, you know.
Oct-08-14  ljfyffe: <Focus> Got rid of those space invaders, to boot.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: <ljyffe> The last one was painted on the wall.
Oct-08-14  ljfyffe: Yes, I remember the lyrics very clearly: "She could not leave her number but I know who placed the call/'cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall"'s considered a very famous poem, you know.

  boz: Wow! Seven of the top ten players right now according to are over the age of 50!

You cant beat Zamfir and his pan flute.

Oct-09-14  ljfyffe: While Slim's yodelling could splat a spaceman on the wall, and Browning do more or less the same thing to his last duchess, all was not well, as we all know, between Browning and other poets of the time. Perhaps, because they had the same first name, Robert Frost considered the author of My Last Duchess to be a rival. He writes as much in another poem, suggesting his competitor has a heart of stone: "Before l built a wall I'd ask to know What l was walling in or walling out, And to whom l was like to give offence. Something there is that doesn't love wall That wants it down." Frost, clearly, did not like Browning, calling him a wall. Of course, the well known story of the duel the two poets ended up having does not bear repeating here as it is so well known. Suffice to say the wall gets knocked down: "Something there is that doesn't love a wall, That sends the frozen ground swell under it." Frozen ground swell is, as we all know, Frost. Frost, then, is confessing that he did away with his rival just like Browning had confessed that he had done away with his mistress. It's simply a matter of reading between the lines. Frost was never charged, by the way. He happened to be a friend of President Kennedy.
Oct-09-14  ljfyffe: <dicaman> You likely know that Slim Whitman was the illigitimate great-grandson of the poet Walt Whitman.
Oct-09-14  diceman: <ljfyffe: <dicaman> You likely know that Slim Whitman was the illigitimate great-grandson of the poet Walt Whitman.>

I know he liked the Whitman's Sampler.
...the "Slim" came from his great discipline.

Oct-09-14  ljfyffe: I apologize for the typo...the elder Whitman was apparantly a dicaman...not that there is anything wrong with that...and I must have sub-consciously erred. Actually, it was a typo. (lol).
Oct-12-14  ljfyffe: Oh, you mean Whitman's chocolates....doh!.....
I'm so easily confused these days I've said before.....or I think I said before...anyway.....
Oct-15-14  ljfyffe: A hymn praising attacks against a variation of the Queen's Gambit, and a variation of the Ruy Lopez: <Ah, you loved me as a loser, but now
you're worried that l might just win
You know the way to stop me, but you don't have
the discipline
How many nights l prayed for this, to let my work begin First we take Manhatten, then we take Berlin.

  Abdel Irada: <Because of Euwe
I never stray too far from the sidewalk>

This pun would work better if Euwe were pronounced like "ewe." But Machgielis' surname actually sounds more like an exclamation of disgust.

  TheFocus: <Diceman> Of course. You don't think chess was paying the bills?

I didn't know they had bills in Amsterdam.
