|Mar-22-16|| ||Mudphudder: What was the approximate ELO rating strength of Duchamp?|
|Mar-23-16|| ||duchamp64: <Mudfudder> At his peak (circa 1929), Duchamp was about 2350 - 2400.|
|Mar-23-16|| ||Mudphudder: Wow. Much stronger than I would have guessed looking over his games here. |
Where did you get that estimate?
|Mar-24-16|| ||OhioChessFan: Bicycle Wheel- https://imageobjecttext.files.wordp...|
|Apr-24-16|| ||OhioChessFan: 'I force myself to contradict myself in order to avoid conforming to my own taste.'|
|Apr-24-16|| ||OhioChessFan: <Mud> I'd have guessed 2400 myself, just based on his career.|

|May-02-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "I am not going to New York, I am leaving Paris. That’s quite different."|
|May-05-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "Chess can be described as the movement of pieces eating one another."|
|May-24-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem. ... I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists."|
|Jul-02-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "Man can never expect to start from scratch; he must start from ready-made things, like even his own mother and father."|
|Jul-28-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Marcel Duchamp.|
|Jul-28-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "Can works be made which are not 'of art'?"|
|Jul-28-16|| ||WannaBe: <OCF> I do it 8-5 everyday!|
|Sep-20-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "The entire world of art has reached such a low level, it has been commercialized to such a degree that art and everything related to it has become one of the most trivial activities of our epoch."|
|Sep-30-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "My stay in Munich was the scene of my complete liberation."|
|Oct-12-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "Gravity is not controlled physically in us by one of the 5 ordinary senses. We always reduce a gravity experience to an autocognizance, real or imagined, registered inside us in the region of the stomach."|
|Oct-23-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "I don't believe in art. I believe in artists."|
|Nov-04-16|| ||Domdaniel: <Ohio> -- < Per <Dom> and the Duchamp fans, I think one thing he has going for him is that he's always interesting. It's an amazingly rare trait.>|
You mean Duchamp, or me?
You're right in either case...
|Nov-04-16|| ||flightsquare: Would love to see a Duchamp, Samuel Beckett game here, although I understand they were all blowouts|
|Nov-04-16|| ||Domdaniel: <flightsquare> Beckett - a good player - said that his games with Duchamp were the most stimulating of his life. Sadly, no records of their games survive.|
|Nov-04-16|| ||OhioChessFan: <OCF: Per <Dom> and the Duchamp fans, I think one thing he has going for him is that he's always interesting. It's an amazingly rare trait.>|
<Dom: You mean Duchamp, or me? >
Both, of course.
“As soon as we start putting our thoughts into words and sentences everything gets distorted, language is just no damn good—I use it because I have to, but I don’t put any trust in it. We never understand each other.”
|Nov-05-16|| ||Domdaniel: <Ohio> That sounds like a song - maybe a ballad by Nick Cave...|
"Language is just no good,
Language is no damn good ...
I use it because I must,
But it never really wins my trust,
Language is no damn good..."
|Nov-07-16|| ||OhioChessFan: I agreed with the last Duchamp quote yesterday, disagree today, but found it interesting both days.|
|Dec-02-16|| ||OhioChessFan: "I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art - and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position."|
